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.

New Nine Inch Nails Video For ‘Came Back Haunted’, New Album Track Listing

on set

 

Nine Inch Nails and David Lynch are a match made in Disturbing Heaven. Trent Reznor tapped the director for NIN’s first video in 5 years, and it’s a glorious mix of surreal and eerie. A shaking Rez appears throughout among images of lightning bolts and what looks like something out of Lynch’s ‘Eraserhead.’ Nightmare-fuel indeed. The video does feature lots of flashing lights, so heed the warning.

WARNING: This video has been identified by Epilepsy Action to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised.

 

This is the first time Reznor and Lynch have worked together since Trent produced the soundtrack for 1997’s ‘Lost Highway.’ Makes me wonder if he’ll be working with another one of our favorite directors anytime soon. “Came Back Haunted” is the first single from ‘Hesitation Marks,’ which will be released on September 3. The album is produced by some familiar NIN collaborators, Alan Moulder and Atticus Ross and also features a surprising guest in Fleetwood Mac‘s Lindsey Buckingham.

Nine Inch Nails will be hit a number of festivals this Summer, starting with the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan on July 26, Lollapalooza on August 2 and the Reading Festival on August 25. Their fall Tension Tour kicks off on September 28 in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival kicked off on Wednesday with the premiere of ‘The Great Gatsby.’ The movie’s stars were in attendance, as were a number of other well dressed folk. While people are curiously raving about Carey Mulligan‘s boring Dior, other actresses have brought their A+ fashion game and have rocked Cannes’ notoriously long red carpet. Check out some of the best looks from the festival so far!

Should we talk about Julianne Moore‘s toes hanging out of her shoes? She has a stylist, a pretty good one, so how was this allowed to happen?

Ladies, I don’t care if you’re wearing Louboutins or the latest from Payless, stop this! Get shoes that fit. It’s not cute, and don’t you want your piggies to go wee wee wee all the way home together.
