Beyonce, Jay Z And Solange Release Statement

NothingToSeeHere

Well THAT’S boring as hell. The BeylongeZ Situation has released a statement to the Associated Press regarding the elevator slap-fight video.

JayZ-Solange-Standard

“As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it,” an exclusive statement to The Associated Press said Thursday. “Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.”

It was reported that Jay Z took Solange “jewelry shopping” yesterday. The BeylongeZ Situation also pulled the “at the end of the day” crap…

“The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.”

At the end of the day, my ass.  This family has a thing or two to learn about families and their problems. (Don’t make me use the “99 Problems But A Bitch Ain’t One” line. It’s tired and overused. Oh, who am I kidding? I love it.) In all seriousness, though, The BeylongeZ Situation must realize that a freeze-out is in order. After the nasty words are spewed (usually without a physical attack), the parties involved merely pretend the other has been vaporized. They are now INVISIBLE. Then you come down with a migraine to avoid any contact. What’s so hard about that? Soon enough, the headache goes away and it’s as if that person never existed.

Not that I would know one goddamn thing about that kind of passive-aggressive behavior. But I swear to God, if she saysare you sure you’re gonna keep that food DOWN? at a family function one more time…because I’m NOT bulimic! I just wanted her to stop clicking her fingernails on the fucking wineglass and she says THAT to me?? Oh, HELL no.

Oh. Sorry.

So yeah. BeylongeZ Situation is being handled.

Lance Armstrong Tells Oprah ALL

Will Lance Armstrong Tell Oprah EVERYTHING?

 

Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong will sit down with Oprah Winfrey for what is being billed as a no holds barred interview.

Years of doping speculation finally culminated with the 7 time Tour de France winner being stripped of his titles last summer.

The Austin resident was also prohibited from participating in any event sanctioned by the World Anti Doping Agency, which includes marathons and triathlons.

Dropped by his high profile friends, Armstrong resigned from  Livestrong, the cancer charity he founded in the wake of his own recovery from testicular cancer.

These high profile interviews are ratings gold, but are they enough to sustain an entire network?

Oprah’s chat with Lance will air on January 17 @ 9PM on OWN.

Teaser Trailer for Baz Lurhmann’s ‘Great Gatsby’ With Leonardo DiCaprio, Toby McGuire and Carey Mulligan

The Great Gatsby (Version 2.0)

 

Baz Lurhmann’s Moulin Rouge Does New YorkGreat Gatsby” trailer is up and running.  I’ve kind of been a sour-puss about this remake in the first place, because my SilverFox husband’s uncle, Gene Ruldolf was the Art Director in the original film starring Mia Farrow and Robert Redford. **coughBigBraggercough**  

Oh, and remember, this new film will be in 3-D. Hmmmmm.   Take a look.

 

Wow. That’s a far-cry from the white, airiness of the original film, innit?  I’m going to back-pedal a bit though. I really do like Baz’s films.  I still love Romeo+JulietSo, let’s just wait and see.

In the meantime…remember this?? I cannot hear Baz Lurhmann’s name without thinking of this classic Reno 911 episode.  I know, the cross-referenced Rolodex in my head is cray-cray.
