Superstar Beyonce has made reference to the infamous elevator fight between her husband Jay Z and sister Solange Knowles in May (14) in a new song featuring Nicki Minaj.
The trio hit headlines earlier this year (14) when surveillance footage emerged showing Knowles lashing out at her brother-in-law Jay Z as they left a party at a New York hotel following the Met Gala.
The Drunk In Love hitmaker later issued a statement insisting her husband and younger sister had "worked through" their disagreement, while Knowles recently claimed she was "at peace" with the incident.
Both siblings stopped short of revealing the reason for the bust-up, but late on Saturday (02Aug14), Beyonce released a remix to her song Flawless, featuring Minaj, in which she brushes off the incident, singing, "We escalate, up in this b**ch like elevators/Of course sometimes s**t go down when there's a billion dollars on an elevator (sic)."
Mom-to-be Kelly Rowland accidentally revealed the gender of her baby during an interview on Thursday (31Jul14).
The former Destiny's Child singer and her husband Tim Witherspoon are preparing for the birth of their first child, and during an interview with Fox News Channel, she let it slip that they will soon be parents to a baby boy.
Talking about her pregnancy journey, Rowland said, "We’re very excited. So far, everything has been good. I just feel like the baby is already (spoiled) rotten - like, literally, my (beauty brand) Caress family has gotten him all of his little bathing stuff, his toys - it's just so cool."
Rowland quickly realised she had 'outed' her baby as a boy, and exclaimed, "It, it's... oh, f**k it! It's a boy. It’s a boy!"
She then told her representative, "Can you please tell him (Witherspoon) that I spilled the beans? I'm sorry, baby. But yes, it's very exciting."

Kelly Osbourne now boasts a shocking inking on the side of her head after a trip to a tattoo parlour on Saturday (28Jun14).
The TV presenter has been sporting a partly-shaved hairstyle this month (Jun14) and she choose to get a new design inked on the bald side of her head.
She wrote in a post on Twitter.com, "#oops what did I do tonight? (sic)", before apologising to her parents Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, adding: "Sorry mum and dad but I love it!"
She also posted a picture of herself lying on a chair at the Shamrock Social Club tattoo parlour in Los Angeles with the word 'stories...' etched on her head.
Singer Sky Ferreira has come to the defence of controversial photographer Terry Richardson, insisting she has never been "forced or manipulated" into uncomfortable situations with her longtime collaborator.
The snapper, who has worked with the likes of Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Miley Cyrus, among others, has faced a backlash in recent years after a number of his subjects, including models Jamie Peck and Charlotte Wheeler, accused him of sexual misconduct.
While Richardson, who is known for his risque photoshoots, recently spoke out to deny the allegations, insisting they were part of an "emotionally-charged witch hunt", Ferreira is also backing the photographer, as she has been posing for his shots for the past four years.
Ferreira, 21, took to Facebook.com on Thursday (26Jun14) to post an impassioned message in support of her friend, writing, "As someone who has worked very closely with Terry Richardson on many, many, many occasions since I was 17 years old I would like to say... from my OWN personal experience: I have never been forced or manipulated into anything. I made a music video with him and I have never felt uncomfortable with Terry & had 99 per cent of the creative control."
She also weighs in on the scandal surrounding Lady Gaga, as the Richardson-directed music video for her song Do What U Want featuring R. Kelly, was leaked online, and made headlines for its explicit content. Ferreira adds, "I'm not against/doubting people that have said they've encountered things with him (it's not my place to say so) but the media acting as if Terry Richardson manipulated Lady Gaga into making a video about getting touched by R. Kelly or whatever is a whole other thing."
"She is 28-year-old woman & fully capable/aware of what she was doing. If she wants to do it is HER choice. Whether I agree with it or not. I'm REALLY insulted that my work is somehow getting dragged into this mess (this is the only place I can actually write about this). Terry has only been a supportive & caring friend to me for a long time. I actually find the whole thing upsetting & have for a while."
Between their grown-up adaptations of Flowers in the Attic and Petals on the Wind and their upcoming biopic slate, which includes films about Whitney Houston and Aaliyah, Lifetime is re-establishing itself as the go-to channel for tactless entertainment. Sure, it’s not high art, but it is fun to watch with a few drinks and a carton of ice cream, and what else do you really need after a long week? Still, one of their upcoming films has the potential to take that absurdity and turn it into must-see TV: The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story.
Based on multiple independently-conducted interviews – and not, thankfully, Dustin Diamond’s 2009 memoir – the film will chronicle all of Bayside’s dirtiest secrets, and promises to change the way you look at the classic teen comedy, if you’re one of the few who made it through Diamond’s press tour without being traumatized. Thus far, all that’s been revealed is the cast, who you can check out on BuzzFeed, but the network is keeping the lid on what kind of shocking secrets will make it into the film. Going by the rumors, speculation and secondhand gossip that have circulated over the years, though, we’d say the film has plenty of shocking revelations up its sleeve; the Saved by the Bell story has it all.
Sex If you believe even a fraction of what Diamond wrote in his memoir, everyone was hooking up with one another behind the scenes at Bayside. And we do mean everybody: all three girls are rumored to have slept with Mario Lopez and Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tiffany-Amber Theissen slept with a few of the show’s memorable guest stars, and Diamond was apparently picking up girls left and right at Disneyland. What else would you expect to happen with a bunch of teenagers stuck together for hours on end?
Drugs Despite the gang’s memorable refusal of drug use on the show, Diamond maintains that everyone was actually getting high off-camera. Apparently, Theissen's dressing room was the place to hang out if you were interested in lighting up. The actor formerly known as Screech also alleged that Gosselaar was using steroids during his time on the show, which the latter had since denied. Whether it’s true or not, you can bet it’ll show up in the movie.
Scandal Between the rumors of NBC paying hush money to a girl who accused Lopez of sexually assaulting her, Diamond’s revelation that he had a relationship with Linda Mancuso, the network’s Head of Children’s Programming, and the speculation that executives and producers were abusing their power over the stars of the show, there are more potential twists and turns in this story than all of V.C. Andrews’ novels put together.
Falls From Grace After spending five years as straight-laced Jessie Spano, Elizabeth Berkley decided to branch out with a role in the NC-17 cult classic Showgirls, a move that sent her career into a tailspin for years afterwards, even if it did give the world a new way to pronounce “Versace.” Thanks to his father’s mishandling of his Saved by the Bell earnings, Diamond went broke as an adult. Although, if he hadn’t needed the money, he might never have written his wonderfully terrible memoir, and there would so much less juicy Saved by the Bell gossip in the world…
In-Fighting With this many teenagers in one place, there must have been plenty of drama. Though there haven’t been too many fights or feuds at Bayside, Diamond does maintain that he was picked on and left out of things by the rest of the cast. Maybe they were just trying to help him get into character?
Sweet '80s Fashions Saved by the Bell was on during the finest period in American fashion: the late '80s and early '90s. Since everything is more ridiculous in hindsight, expect plenty of acid-washed denim, teased hair, garish print and color combinations, crop tops and bows – and that was just Kelly’s wardrobe. We don’t even know how they’re going to tackle every ridiculous thing that Slater wore.
The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell Story premieres on September 1 at 9pm on Lifetime. We're so excited, we're so scared!
Pop superstar Lady Gaga has brushed off criticism of her controversial Do What U Want music video after the raunchy promo leaked online.
The singer released her duet with R. Kelly last year (13), but the accompanying video failed to appear and Gaga blamed the delay on time constraints. The clip, which features Kelly and was directed by controversial photographer Terry Richardson, leaked online on Thursday (19Jun14), and hit headlines for its explicit content, with critics alleging the saucy scenes appear to condone rape.
However, Gaga dismissed the furore over the promo in a post on her Instagram.com page on Friday (20Jun14), adding a picture of her dogs looking bored and writing in a caption, "Stella and Asia after watching DWUW (Do What U Want)."
She adds in a series of posts on Twitter.com, "Is there a yawn emoji (emoticon)... this one doesn't look unimpressed enough."

WENN - Lady Gaga "Venus"
A 30-second clip of Lady Gaga's long-awaited video for her R. Kelly duet Do What U Want has been leaked online.
The duo released the track in October (13) and performed the saucy rendition of the single during a November (13) appearance on the American Music Awards, where Gaga stunned fans by pretending to give the R&B veteran oral sex as he portrayed the U.S. president.
However, a promo for the song never appeared, and in January (14), the Poker Face hitmaker reached out to fans to apologise for the video delay, insisting she was not completely satisfied with the film because she was only given a week to "plan and execute" her ideas for the shoot.
Now, six months later, footage from the explicit video has surfaced on TMZ.com. In one clip, Gaga is pictured as a patient, lying naked under a white sheet on a hospital bed, with Kelly posing as her surgeon as he touches her body under the sheet, causing the singer to moan.
Other scenes feature Gaga writhing around topless on the floor with ripped up magazine pages covering the bottom half of her body as she cups her breasts in her hands, while she also lies face down and pretends to hump the ground in another raunchy segment.
Controversial photographer Terry Richardson also makes an appearance in the promo.
Iggy Azalea's comedian father Brendan James Kelly is releasing a series of naughty 'childrens' books in his native Australia.
The new tomes, which will hist stores next week (beg16Jun14), will include titles like The Perfect Poo and The Runt Who Said C**t. A press release about the books reads, "One of the titles contains illustrations of penises black and white, erect and flaccid while foul language and swear words occur commonly throughout Kelly's work."
