Coming up next week, the United States will be undergoing a massive transition as new President Barack Obama is sworn into office. And Beyonce Knowles will be there to help him and his family celebrate.
In fact, the “Bootylicious” songstress will actually sing for Barack and Michelle Obama’s first dance on Inauguration night (Tuesday January 20).
She’s no stranger to the glitz and glamour that comes with being a bona fide diva. But last night, Beyonce Knowles ditched her usual getup for a dressed-down late night shopping excursion.
The “All the Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” songstress was spotted with her husband Jay-Z and a bodyguard on a retail romp at Nikki Beach, without any makeup, or any of the other usual trappings that give her the superstar look.
Being one of the world’s hottest celebrity starlets doesn’t come without baggage. As with any supremely attractive person you may know, the burden of proof for intelligence and sense of humor is extremely steep.
We make assumptions of our celebrity starlets, some more than others, even if we only know them through their appearances in movies and their five-minute interviews on late talk shows. However, sometimes the starlets take action into their own hands to combat such assumptions. The end result typically doesn’t lead to a dramatically altered opinion of the starlet, but it’s usually entertaining, and at least for a moment, we might consider the starlet in a new light.
Only a few short years after she began making Hollywood films, Lohan started to develop a reputation for heavy partying and unhealthy eating habits. Her irresponsible off-screen behavior has often been chalked up to her young age and lack of experience, but it has never sat well with her fans or the general public.
In April of 2006, Lohan returned to host Saturday Night Live for her third time. The highlight of the show was a fake Neutrogena ad for what’s essentially moisturizer for butt cracks. In the ad, Lohan even shows off a little of her own crack, proving to skeptics that a) she has a solid sense of humor and b) even though she’s absurdly skinny, she still has a booty.
