Stop the world, we're getting off. Beyoncé and Jay-Z have once again proven how iconic and culture-shaping they are by putting a painting of Queen Meghan Markle behind them, and now it's for SALE in poster format.
The Carters won the Best International Group gong at The Brit Awards over the weekend, and paid tribute to the Duchess of Sussex herself in an ode to their incredible APESH**T music video in the Louvre.
Captioning the unreal video, Beyoncé wrote;
"Thank you to the Brits for the award for Best International Group. I won this award back in 2002 with my besties, Kelly and Michelle." Destiny's Child is for life, it's not a phase, mom.
"How lucky am I to have been in a group with my other best friend, the GOAT Hova. In honour of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas. Congrats on your pregnancy! We wish you so much joy," she concluded.
Well, all other artwork is now irrelevant. The Renaissance is CANCELLED. The Louvre is to be shut down, except for this one painting that precedes all others. Picasso never happened. It's only Meghan Mona Lisa that matters.
Prolific artist Tim O'Brien is the man behind the amazing painting, and has done some amazing works to represent American politics and culture.
Ariana has just broken an incredible record; Grande is the first artist since the Beatles to hold the number one album slot and Billboard Hot 100 top-three single slots at once, with 7 Rings, Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored and Thank U, Next.
Corden rattled off the crazy statistics while Grande responded with humble graciousness and no less than 13 “sorrys,” “I’m sorrys,” and “I’m so sorrys.” It's the new "yuh".
Grande laughed along with the talk show host after the overwhelming achievements, and assured him, “I’ll take a break after this. I’ll go away for a little, I promise.”
Thank God, Corden spoke on behalf of us all when he responded with, “We don’t want you to,” but Grande was quick to reply, “I do! I’m tired of my voice.”
nonna just facetimed me and screamed “ANYTHING ELSE U WANNA DO?” my team made me this and it’s pretty so i’m posting it and also i’m so very proud and grateful for everything but i promise i’ll shut the fuck up after this. congrats team, i love u. thank u so much. pic.twitter.com/2c3upxO9lR
The 25-year-old star added that recently, “I usually don’t have anything to do …Personal life is still nonexistent,” and that she was planning on celebrating the Billboard records by going out to dinner with her mom or recording more in the studio.
The gal has an insane work ethic, and can do no wrong it would seem. 2019 is most definitely the Year of the Grande, and her tour starts in four weeks. We WISH we had tickets to see the queen perform in person.
Carry on slayin' the game Ari, we say "yuh" instead of "I'm sorry" because you should NEVER apologise for your hard-earned success. Get it, gurl.
Ms. Hill became musical from a highly young age, as well as showing a streak for community service and charity work. She acted, danced and was involved in performance art of all kinds from her formative years.
Excelling academically, she attended Columbia University in New York at the same time as joining the up-and-coming band The Fugees. As the lone female in the group, she guided them to achieve record sales.
The band became the biggest selling R&B act worldwide since Michael Jackson, and Ms. Hill then launched her solo career after releasing the commercially successful and critically acclaimed album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill
The album deservedly earned her a record-breaking five Grammy awards, and she blazed the trail for female soul and R&B artists in the coming years.
The Cork gig slot comes after confirmed appearances at Nocturne Live at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on June 21 and the Love Supreme Jazz Festival in East Sussex on July 7.
Tickets are priced from €49.90 including booking fee, and are going on sale at 8:30am this Friday, February 15 on www.ticketmaster.ie.
R&B singer R. Kelly has just announced a worldwide tour, despite the extensive abuse allegations against him going back three decades.
The world's most notorious musician's alleged predilection for engaging in sex acts with underage girls is the subject of a new documentary, Surviving R Kelly.
The series has rocked the entire world, watching the sheer scale of claims made against him over such an extended amount of time.
Kelly has consistently denied all the accusations of sexual misconduct, rape, emotional, physical and sexual abuse and holding women captive in a sex cult. He has also threatened to sue Lifetime for airing the docu-series.
The singer has an album, Trust, coming out soon and has dropped new music for his 'Day One Fans' on January 1.
Streams of his music has shockingly increased since more allegations were released to the general public, with numerous celebrities slamming his actions and treatment of black women.
R Kelly's alleged abusive treatment hasn't been a secret for the music industry; he even went on trial for child pornography back in 2001 but was acquitted of all charges despite a large amount of evidence against him.
It was also rumoured that he physically abused R&B singer Aaliyah, and it's been reported that he married her when she was just 15-years-old by forging legal documents.
Time will tell whether the tour will sell tickets, but reactions have been incredulous;
R Kelly – found not guilty with statutory rape, assault charges, child melestation… Releases banger after banger… Surviving R Kelly basically exposes everything to be true… Announces a tour… Makes my blood boil the front of this man. https://t.co/Ub3MXeAOEZ
How can you have the audacity to tour when you have held women against their will? Actually I rephrase, you have brainwashed women so they think your predator treatment is ok? Sri Lanka? S. Africa? Good luck with that tour

The whole Ariana Grande 7 Rings tattoo debacle is honestly absurd, but yet it's STILL GOING. We're getting as bored of it as she is to be honest…
If you're puzzled about the reference, in summary our home-girl Ari tried to get a tattoo which translated to 7 Rings, her latest number one hit, but instead she accidentally got the Japanese symbol for a barbecue grill restaurant. Awkward.
She then tried to fix it after consulting a supposed friend of hers who spoke the lingo, but her amendment translated the ink to say 'Japanese BBQ finger'. We're dead.
The Thank U, Next singer has gained a HUGE amount of attention online over the error, but now a certain tattoo removal studio has offered her some serious cash to have them laser it off for her.
TMZ has acquired an offer letter from LaserAway, a company who want to strike a deal with Grande that would offer her free laser removal of the tattoo in exchange for a photoshoot at LaserAway and one post per month for a year about her experience.
Also, ONE and a HALF MILLION DOLLARS. How do they even have that money to offer in the first place?
In response, Ari tweeted; "I'll give y'all a million to get off my nuts." to which we say; "Hear, Hear." This needs to end, stat.
Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber's infamous manager, Scooter Braun, responded to the claims;
"I can't speak for Ariana as we have not received this letter, however, if they're willing to send me the offer, I'm sure I'd be happy to get a tattoo and then remove it real quick … for $1.5 million." Eh, WHAT?
Braun continued; "Hopefully, we can make this deal before her album comes out next week…shameless plug."
The offer letter is signed by company president, Todd Heckmann, and genuinely concludes with, "Thank u, next tiny barbecue grill." We can't.
What a wild ride…we want to get off now, it's becoming a bit much.
Stop the world, it's officially Stormi Webster's first birthday. The glamorous baby Kardashian is Kylie's precious bundle of joy, with boyfriend Travis Scott. She's given us some memorable moments, so we just HAD to make a list.
The precious lil baby has a pretty extravagant lifestyle, if we do say so ourselves. The tot is flown all around the world, decked in the finest designer gear you can buy.
Who can forget the Scott and Jenner's YouTube announcement of Kylie's pregnancy, titled To Our Daughter. The video racked up 80 MILLION views, and shows flashback shots to Kris Jenner's own pregnancy and the labour of Stormi.
The baby's arrival meant that she was born into an army of Kardashian kids, such as Khloé's adorable True Thompson and Kim and Kanye's bunch; Chicago, North and Saint West.
Here are some of our favourite Stormi moments;
1. The Announcement
On February 4 2018, Kylie made the ultimate pregnancy announcement with a beautiful mini-documentary of her pregnancy and family memories.
The reality TV star managed to stay off social media for the entire nine months, and never confirmed the baby's existence until the stunning announcement video. Suddenly, the couple introduced the world to Stormi Webster, after months of speculation.
We were HOOKED:
2. Her Fendy pram experience
Other babies are probably pretty jealous right now.
Stormi is no ordinary infant though, she rides in designer style.
The time Kylie took her tot for a stroll entirely covered head-to-toe in Fendy had everything gasping for monetary air.
How can we forget the time Stormi got a coveted Louis Vuitton handbag, after Travis dropped off a new chair for her.
The designer bag is a vintage black and rainbow monogrammed LV purse valued at over €2270. Oh, and that chair she's sitting on? It's a limited edition piece by Brazilian designer Campana and American artist KAWS.
Kylie captioned the snap; "Daddy dropped off a new chair for Stormi and omg this girl threw the bag over her shoulder, I can’t."
We wish someone could hand us a bag like this one… but we think we'll be waiting a long time.
Jessica Biel is sending some serious lurrrrrve vibes Justin Timberlake's way. The married pair are absolutely adorable, and share three-year-old son Silas together.
Biel, who recently produced and starred in the incredible Netflix show The Sinner, has now uploaded the CUTEST message to her husband, and we can't stop weeping.
The 36-year-old actress posted a photo of the happy couple smiling underwater, and captioned the note;
"Since the days of embarrassing pink ruffled bikinis and underwater photo shoots, you have been infusing my life with so much joy and laughter that I blame YOU for my smile lines. But I wouldn’t trade them for the world."
Their big night out seemed to take a lot out of Biel, who fell asleep in the car, much to Justin's amusement. He posted a hilarious video singing happy birthday to himself, while his wife is fully in dreamland beside him.
He added the cheeky caption; “Gotta work tomorrow for my bday so wifey really going all out tonight…” She playfully replied; “I’m just preparing for our big night out. Just preparing.”
Thursday night's Madison Square Garden performance was originally meant to happen in October, but Timberlake had ongoing bruised vocal cords and was forced to postpone it.
The former *NSYNC member previously had an operation to remove his throat nodules back in 2005.
Justin couldn't stop thinking about Jessica after their first meeting; “I’m kind of really interested in that girl. There was just something about that girl. Kind of interested in that girl. Goddamn it.”
The actress later came to a show during his FutureSex/LoveSounds tour. He finally asked for her number after offering her a lift in his tour bus.; “Then the Golden Globes came up, and that’s when we planned on seeing each other."
“We’ve had a lot of unforgettable times,” Timberlake added. “She’s become a huge influence on my life, and I have such an admiration for her, especially seeing her as a mother now.”
The romance didn't stop there, with him gushing about her influence; “But I had admiration for her before. She’s a very good writer. She’s a poet. She’s a tremendous actor. She’s funny. Very funny. And she’s one of the most patient people I’ve ever met… She changed me. She changed my life.”
Iconic singer Kylie Minogue has been left 'very shaken' after a man refused to leave her London home, and launched 'sustained campaign' of harassment, The Sun reported.
Following a complaint by the singer, the man has been issued with a harassment warning. Police were called to a house in Chelsea and Kensington on January 23, according to the Metropolitan Police.
The mystery man reportedly asked her neighbours where the 50-year-old singer lived, and then pressed the intercom, refusing to leave. Security has since been increased at her West London house as a result.
The man, who is in his 40s, was lurking around her home for days, and her neighbours spotted him a number of times requesting to know where Kylie lives.
A nearby resident in West London said: "It came to a head when the man repeatedly pressed the intercom button to her home for hours on end last week and refused to leave."
The resident continued; "Kylie was quite upset and called in police. They spoke to Kylie, and also the suspect in the street for quite a while." She has taken 'sensible steps' to stop this from happening again.
Kylie as been seen enjoying her West London neighbourhood with her boyfriend, Paul Solomons. The 43-year-old is the creative director at British GQ and GQ Style magazine, and the pair went public last summer.
The singer was previously engaged to British actor Joshua Sasse, but they parted ways in February 2017. Kylie achieved her sixth UK number one last year when Golden reached the number one spot.
A number of celebrities have been plagued by stalkers and have been forced to hire extra protection or relocate, such as Tom Hardy and his wife Charlotte Riley, Noel Edmonds and Christine Lampard.
Luckily for us, specialist tour operators Roma Experience are now (hilariously) offering an Instagram boyfriend to follow you around all day and get those #travelgoals snaps you've always wanted.
They spotted a gap in the market, that's for sure. Their timing couldn't be better, seeing as social media is playing a massive role in the lives of global youth.
Instagram is even acting as an influential factor in choosing a travel destination, with a ludicrous 40.1% of millennials deeming the site an important factor when considering a holiday. My God, what have we become?
The wonderful service allows travellers to hire a profesh photographer to join them on their tour for three hours, taking pictures of them around some of the most picturesque Italian sites the gorgeous country has to offer.
You will then be emailed the iconic new pictures of you at your fiercest, fresh and ready for the gram. Or just your fridge?
The service is an additional €350 on top of the price for the full-day tour of Rome, but can you put a price on insta-worthy images? Hell no. It's 2019, this is our lifestyle now people.
Roma Experience’s Full Day Tour of Rome and Vatican City costs from €643, including all entrance fees, and private transfer from the city centre to the Vatican. The photographic service is an option extra, priced at €355.
