Beyonce Knowles' name change

23 December 2009 3:04 AM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Beyonce Knowles and Jay-z are to change their names. The couple, who married in April 2008, are to take on both of their respective surnames in order to keep the 'Crazy In Love' star's parental line from dying out. Jay-z - whose real name is Shawn Carter - will now be known as Shawn Knowles-Carter, while Beyonce is to become Beyonce Knowles-Carter. A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "They want to keep Knowles because Beyonce's parents didn't have any sons and they're keen to keep the name going strong, especially if they don't produce any children themselves." Earlier this week, the Knowles family suffered a blow when it was announced that Beyonce's parents Tina and Mathew would be divorcing »

What were your cultural highlights of the decade? | Sarah Phillips

6 December 2009 4:20 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

All this week, the Guardian's critics are revealing their key cultural works of the noughties. So what are yours – both good and bad?

So the sun is about to set on the noughties, and many a list is being drawn up as we get nostalgic about the not so distant past, and try to make sense of what it all meant.

From today, the Guardian's arts critics write up the decade as they saw it, revealing their cultural highs and lows in a week-long series in G2 and online. And there is much to digest: you can barely believe that Tate Modern only opened in 2000 or that iPods were launched in 2001.

Kicking off proceedings, Peter Bradshaw gives his verdict on the films that mattered most, charting the impact of politics and society, the people we lost or those whose influence grew, and the government backing of British film like never before. »

'Beyonce: I Am...Yours': Um, you are?

27 November 2009 9:18 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

"I am very unpredictable," Beyonce said on last night's concert special about her, and, uh, that is just not true. She is a lot of things -- talented, beloved, a non-stop hit-maker -- but she's also one of our most reliable celebrities. We count on her to be beautiful, to make top-40 jams we'll shout along to in the car, to be essentially scandal-free. "Beyonce: I Am...Yours" was one giant (fun!) infomercial for her brand of lovely diligence, but its title, like its star's declarations about herself, wasn't quite accurate: Are there performers less "ours" than Beyonce? I can't think of one. »

Glee recap (1.11): "Hairography"

26 November 2009 4:18 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

I thought this was another strong showing from Glee. I've seen a definite improvement in the writing these last few episodes. Instead of counting shots, I may have to start counting the number of times an episode makes me fight back tears.

This week started off with Sue reminding Will that she wants to see the set list. Will is suspicious, especially after catching Britney recording their rehearsals. She blurts out, "Ms. Sylvester didn't ask me to do this!" Will is convinced that Sue wants to give the set list to their sectionals competition to undermine their chances of winning. At Emma's urging he decides to go visit the other schools and ask them pointblank.

Eve is playing the director of the Jane Adams Academy's glee club. This is basically a juvenile detention center for troubled girls.  Take Afaysia, for instance. When Eve (her character has a name, I just didn't catch it and, »

Jay-z Scores His First Chart-Topper With 'Empire State Of Mind'

19 November 2009 8:40 AM, PST | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

Considering how many chart-topping albums he has had and the number of smash singles he has released, it's amazing to think that Jay-z has never had a song top the Billboard Hot 100, the definitive pop songs chart. That changed this morning, as his "Empire State of Mind" took the top spot in its tenth week of release. The track, which of course features a memorable hook care of Alicia Keys, picked up a ton of radio airplay in the wake of the New York Yankees' World Series win (the team ended up adopting it as a victory anthem). Meanwhile, "Run This Town," the first single from The Blueprint 3, remains in the top 20.

While it does mark the first time Jigga has had one of his own songs at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, it's not the first time his name has been associated with the top spot. He has »

Beyonce, Jay-z, Kanye make rare stage appearance together in London

16 November 2009 11:17 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's very rare for Beyonce and husband/superstar Jay-z to perform together, but the pair basically lived out thousands of fans' dreams at London's O2 Arena last night (Nov. 15) as they played "Crazy in Love," according to NME.com. Jay-z pulled a similar appearance only once before, earlier this year in June, when B kicked off her tour in North America. In another major live stage surprise, Kanye West joined up on the track "Ego," a track he's done a remix on recently. It appears the two buried that hatchet, after Ms. Fierce took to Taylor Swift's defense when West copped the »

Ellen Page and Drew Barrymore share their favorite songs

20 October 2009 10:00 AM, PDT | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

The other day, I was perusing the iTunes homepage when I spotted a celebrity playlist unlike the rest. Usually, there is only one Mc narrating their ultimate mixtape but this time there were two. Not just any two — it was Drew Barrymore and Ellen Page who had put one together, together.

Listening to their banter back and forth gave me the giggles and darn it if I didn’t turn red and make my mind wander to some amazing far off places.

The point of the celebrity playlist is to basically show the world what terrible or incredible music taste a certain celeb has. At one point, Drew says, “Ellen’s got great taste and we share a lot in common and yet I feel like I’m always being turned on to new things by her." Oh I bet! I bet you get turned on by new things coming »

Beyonce Knowles won't be Bootylicious

25 September 2009 2:53 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Beyonce Knowles has vowed to wear "appropriate" clothing for her controversial show in Malaysia. The 'Crazy in Love' singer's scheduled concert in the country's capital Kuala Lumpur on October 25 has been met with anger by Islamic extremists, who claim her sexy outfits and provocative stage routines are "immoral" and will corrupt young people. But the 28-year-old star - who had to pull out of a concert in the country two years ago after the same group, the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, threatened to protest at the show - has agreed to tone down her performance, meaning the concert can go ahead. Show organisers Marctensia said all parties had reached an "amicable understanding". A spokesperson for the entertainment company added: "We »

Suri Cruise Burst Into Tears At Beyonce's Concert

17 September 2009 10:47 PM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Katie Holmes' daughter burst into tears at a Beyonce Knowles concert on Tuesday night. Three-year-old Suri Cruise - Katie's daughter with husband Tom Cruise - was initially thrilled as she sat with her mother behind velvet ropes in the general admission section of the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia.

But when Beyonce took to the stage to perform her hit "Crazy In Love," Suri started crying, hiding her face in Katie's coat to escape the bright lights and noise.

As soon as the number was over, Katie and Suri hurried out of the stadium, returning 15 minutes later with a pair of industrial ear-muffs for the toddler.

A source said: "We were all a bit shocked when they left after the first song, but they were back before long, with Suri wearing a huge pair of earmuffs."
