I cant take back what I’ve said but I am apologetic to her and whoever may have been offended in that interview."

Who do you admire out of the new breed of divas?
I don't really follow every new act — they come out constantly. There are so many, it's often hard to keep track, and sometimes they're here today and gone tomorrow. I admire my friends, like Beyonce and Nicki Minaj — people who seem destined to be doing this for a living with longevity.

Ahead of her first-ever 21 date headline tour - which starts in January 2011 and ends a month later - the Broken Heels singer explained that she has been watching the King of Pop's This Is It DVD, to help make her performances more exciting.

"For me, it's more about the things you don't know. I've never toured alone before so I'm excited but very scared - although not to the point that I won't go on stage. It's always good to have nerves and show you care." Burke continued: "I've watched Michael Jackson's This Is It DVD about five times and all of the Beyonce tour and have seen how people do live performances."

The wife of actor and TV presenter Nick Cannon who only recently announced her pregnancy after months of relentless speculation, appeared on US chat show ‘Lopez Tonight’ to promote the release of her new christmas album ‘Merry Christmas II You’.

But there is more, Lopez exclaims: “The baby has an assistant!” and a foetus PA pops on screen too.

Eliza Doolittle: "I desparately wanted to be Beyonce"

Klaudia//November 4, 2010
Eliza Doolittle talks to Sugarscape! And we leave wanting ALL of her clothes. Eliza Doolittle has a cool name. We've known that since we saw her first music video back in the springtime, and her name flashed up on the screen. "That's cool" we said. And then we changed channels. We met up with her a couple of weeks ago, and the same thing popped into our heads when we saw her. Followed by "She's tiny" and a 3 minute thought tangent about whether or not she would actually fit in our pockets. Conclusion: She wouldn't. But that's only because we don't have any. Once we'd recovered from the height/name thing, we let her get on with telling us about everything that she's been up to recently. Her latest single, Rollerblades was out on the 18th of October. She said that she really didn't expect her music to do so well this year: "It totally blows my mind. I didn't see this coming at all. Obviously I really hoped that it would, but I had no real idea of what would really happen with it. "I was about 12 when I decided that I really really wanted to sing, so when somebody told me to start writing straightaway, that's what I did. I got a publishing deal for my songwriting while I was pretty young, but I spent a while working what i really wanted to sound like before I put myself out there as a singer. Actually Rollerblades was the first song when I was really like 'yeah, this is my sound!' which is I put my head down and got on with the album. Then I got a record deal and a couple of years later, here we are! "I still have all the old songs from when I was 12 on my laptop though, but nobodys allowed to see them! Its kind of like a diary. I don't get embarrassed by them: they're kind of cute. They're just a bit personal. I was just writing about boys and copying Destiny's Child: I desperately wanted to be Beyonce. "When I was 14 or 15, I got really annoyed about all the songs on the radio being about love and boyfriends, especially when I didn't even have one! So I made a pact with myself not to ever base my songs on those subjects. It's just really boring. That's why I write about real life. I'm not saying that I'll never change my mind about that, but at the moment I'm happy with the kind of thing I'm doing.

Paul McCartney mentions Beyonce as celeb for album cover

Klaudia//November 4, 2010
Sir Paul McCartney believes music today is just as good, and in some cases better, than it was in his Beatles heyday. In an interview with The Sun, Sir Paul said, "I think there's a lot of great music around, I really do. You get someone going, 'Oh, it's not like it was in my day!' I say, 'No, it's different. It isn't like it was in your day. And actually some of it is better.'" As for the knight-of-the-realm's current favourites, he said, "I like Kings Of Leon, I think they're really cool. I like Plan B, he's good. He has really got it, you know, a good singer, man." Currently promoting the reissue of Wing's album 'Band on the Run,' Sir Paul was asked who he would invite to appear on an updated cover -- the 1973 original featured a host of celebrities caught in a spotlight trying to make a getaway. The former Beatle said, "Tom (Meighan) from Kasabian. Then next to him Beyonce Knowles, looking a bit sort of scared. Then we'd have to get Bob Dylan and Neil Young. We could have Ricky Gervais. I need a sportsman -- Usain Bolt? I'd have to have Barack Obama too. I'd give him a ring." He concluded, "Kirsty Young from Radio 4's 'Desert Island Discs'. That would top it off nicely."

Michael Ealy talks about Beyonce

Klaudia//November 2, 2010
Monday was a good time for Michael Ealy to chat with Speakeasy, because he had the afternoon off from an independent movie he’s filming in Nashville. As an actor, Ealy’s everywhere these days, playing the possibly devious new law partner in the CBS hit, “The Good Wife,” and the boyfriend of David Duchovny’s baby mama on Showtime’s “Californication.” He has also been cast as the lead in a USA Network comedy pilot, “Common Law,” about two mismatched police partners. And this Friday, he opens in Tyler Perry’s film adaptation of the 1975 stage hit “For Colored Girls,” playing a deeply troubled war veteran. He has taken less taxing roles as the love interest in two videos, Mariah Carey’s 2005 “Get Your Number” and last year’s “Halo,” with Beyonce. “Beyonce—she’s Beyonce!” he explains his motivation. “Once I heard the song, I had to do it. It was my second time being asked to do a Beyonce video. The first was ‘Irreplaceable”’ –where the singer explains that her lover is indeed replaceable—“but I didn’t want to do that. I said, ‘Call me when you have a hero role.’” Well, it doesn’t get much more heroic—or angelic—than “Halo,” although Ealy says that “the original video wasn’t so fluffy. People weren’t sure what it meant. And Beyonce said, My audience is young, this is too dark for them. “So I got another day of hanging around Beyonce,” he continues. “Poor me. How many men can say they have stood three inches from Beyonce and had her sing for them? I was like, THANK YOU!”

Miranda Lambert talks about Beyonce

Klaudia//October 20, 2010
What is the most quirky or hilarious part of your touring/showtime routine?

It's not all that quirky or hilarious, but I like to watch Beyonce's live DVDs often before I go on stage for inspiration. I absolutely love her. She is the ultimate performer for me. She sings, dances and gives the audience a phenomenal show with all the bells and whistles. I have seen her live in concert several times, and I am always completely blown away.

Willow Smith names Beyonce as her music inspiration

Klaudia//October 20, 2010
Williow Smith reveals to MTV’s Gabi that her biggest music inspirations are Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Billie Idol and her parents.

Kelly Price talks about Beyonce

Klaudia//October 10, 2010
Clayton Perry: In 2003, Rob Theakston (of called Priceless, your last full-fledged R&B album, "a much needed return of a quality R&B vocalist in the genre oversaturated with mediocrity." Seven years later, with the release of “Tired,” I feel that I can echo his statement, because vocally you can still run circles around the “best” singers that are currently on the charts. Where, oh where, have all the SANGers gone?

Kelly Price: When I look around at who is out today, I don't really see a lot of singers, like myself. And I guess I have to be careful, in how I say that, because I mean no disrespect. But I do look at other things. Beyoncé, for example, I love her work ethic. She works like she's got to go stand in line and wait for a block of cheese.

Clayton Perry: Right!

Kelly Price: But I so respect that, because what I see around her, I see a lot of artists who are grabbing at where she is, but they don't work nearly as hard as she does. And so she'll always be “Bey,” because she always works like that. So I respect that.
