Beyoncé Releases Surprise New Album

Beyoncé Releases Surprise Self-Titled Album

Originally posted 12/13/2013 05:45AM

Beyoncé has created a holiday frenzy – delighting fans by announcing a surprise new album just before midnight Friday, then secretly releasing it immediately after the announcement.

With 14 songs and 17 videos, the self-titled album features several collaborators including Jay Z, Drake and Frank Ocean – and a special little one on its closing track. For the song "Blue," Beyoncé performs with daughter Blue Ivy.

"I see music," Beyoncé said in a video announcement on her Facebook page. "It's more than just what I hear. When I’m connected to something, I immediately see a visual or a series of images that are tied to a feeling or an emotion, a memory from my childhood, thoughts about life, my dreams or my fantasies. And they’re all connected to the music."

Justin Timberlake Snubbed, Sara Bareilles Surprises in Grammy Noms

Justin Timberlake Snubbed, Sara Bareilles Surprises in Grammy Noms

Originally posted 12/07/2013 12:55PM

Justin Timberlake was the biggest snub and Sara Bareilles was the biggest surprise in the top categories of the nominees for the 56th annual Grammy Awards, which were announced Friday night in conjunction with a concert special televised from Nokia Theatre L.A. Live.

Timberlake was expected to make the cut for album of the year for his hit comeback The 20/20 Experience, and was also a likely contender for both record and song of the year for "Mirrors," but was shut out of all of those categories.

Perhaps Timberlake's decision to release a second part of The 20/20 Experience in September backfired on him. With both installments counting as one album, he might have diluted the strength of the first half with the voters.

The song of the summer – Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" – was a no-brainer for a record of the year nod when the 2014 Grammy nominations were announced Friday night during a live concert at the Nokia Theater in L.A.

But Miley Cyrus, whose headline-making songs "We Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball" were eligible, was shut out of the major categories.

Jay-Z leads the pack with nine nominations, Justin Timberlake, Kendrick Lamar and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis scored seven apiece while newcomer Lorde received four.

Beyoncé and Jay Z Are Eating a Vegan Diet for 22 Days

Originally posted 12/04/2013 11:45AM

They've conquered the music world, but Jay Z and Beyoncé are now embarking on a health-inspired challenge – going vegan for 22 days.

"On December 3, one day before my 44th birthday, I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!" the music mogul wrote on his Life + Times website. "This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a 'plant-based breakfast' every day. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought."

He cited the numerical serendipity of his eating quest and noted he was supported on his journey by a vegan pal, Marc Borges, founder of the 22 Days nutrition program, which touts "optimum wellness through conscious nutrition."
