Ginuwine Compares Beyonce to Aaliyah

Klaudia//March 25, 2011
If you've ever wondered where Aaliyah would stand in today's music world if she were still alive, just ask Ginuwine. Aaliyah and Ginuwine were thick as thieves back in the late '90s -- along with Timbaland, Missy Elliott and the rest of the original Supafriends. Since Aaliyah's death in 2001, a favorite debate among R&B listeners about who carries her legacy always crops up. Ginuwine's answer? He told AOL's The Boombox that it's Beyonce. "Aaliyah was in a class by herself," Ginuwine tells The BoomBox. "If you're talking triple threat of a writer, singer and actress, that would probably be Beyoncé. If Aaliyah were still here, she and Beyoncé would be neck and neck." While the Aaliyah comparisons with newer artists still float on today, Ginuwine says it's nothing to shun. "Ain't nothing wrong with that," he says. "I think everyone should aspire to be someone great, and that was one of the greats. Aaliyah was one of the great ones."

Gwyneth Paltrow emotional about Beyoncé friendship

Klaudia//March 25, 2011
Gwyneth Paltrow says Beyoncé Knowles is such a good friend it brings tears to her eyes. The Hollywood actress and her husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, are close pals with singing superstar Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z. The foursome love spending time together and Gwyneth turned to Beyoncé for advice when she landed a role as singer Kelly Canter in her latest movie Country Strong. The Oscar-winner knew the songstress would be the perfect person to teach her how to play a successful musician, but Gwyneth was still blown away by how supportive Beyoncé was. “I asked my two great singer friends Faith Hill and Beyoncé who are super successful on the level that Kelly Canter is supposed to be,” Gwyneth replied to British television show Lorraine when asked how she prepared for the movie role. “I picked their brains and I watched them and watched their concerts and I really tried to get them. They were wonderful to me, so supportive. I could cry thinking about how incredible they were to me. You know, a good girlfriend is such a valuable thing, it really is, and they really stepped up to the plate for me.”

Shontelle Calls Beyonce A 'Living Legend'

Klaudia//March 25, 2011
Shontelle has called Beyonce a "living legend" after going on tour with her, revealing she was a massive fan of the former Destiny's Child singer. The Bajan star has also admitted that Queen B is the only star she would watch every night when she was touring, after being blown away by her performances. 'Impossible' singer Shontelle gushed about her touring experiences with BeyBey, exclaiming to MTV's The Wrap Up: "Queen B! That was one of the most epic experiences of my little old career. I learned so much from her. "I thought I knew how to perform until I saw her perform every day. After being on tour with her, you have to step your game up. You literally feel like you're at the bottom of the sewers or something when next to her." She added: "Every night she just blew me away. I've done a few tours, but Beyonce's tour was the only one that I'd stay and watch every single night. I'm a fan." Shontelle, 25, also revealed how nervous she was to meet the 'Crazy In Love' singer and was amazed at how sweet she was. "During the tour, I got to speak with her in her dressing room and I was so nervous. They literally had to push me in. She's like a living legend. She was just the sweetest, most accommodating, and most present artist to be around. And she gave me such great inspiring advice. She's amazing."

Jessie J talks about Beyonce

Klaudia//March 18, 2011
NL: As a songwriter, who inspires you?

JJ: I’ve always been a massive MJ and Prince fan. When I was growing up, my mum and dad would play Tracy Chapman, D-Train…I’m a massive 80s punk fan and I love Funkadelics and Gap Band, Rose Royce. I just love 80s music. Like, the harmonies and the soul-ness of it. The melody and the lyrical content. Right now, I’m a huge Rihanna fan. I’ve always been slightly obsessed with her. And I think I idolize Beyoncé as a performer. But, you know, it’s weird because I don’t really get inspired a lot by other people. It’s gonna sound really awful like I don’t listen to music much because I do, but I don’t eat, breathe, live, smoke, eat — I said that already — music. I kind of just go with the flow. Like I’ll see a mum with her daughter playing in the street and that will spark an idea for a song. I don’t know. I don’t want to get too much inspired by what other people are doing because I don’t like copying them…but, yeah, I love writing songs. It’s my musical outlet.

NL: If you had your choice of a duet partner, who would be your dream partner?

JJ: Prince, all the way. Prince is like…oooh amazing! Him or Beyoncé. I think Beyoncé is the person that I think…Beyoncé, Jazmine Sullivan, Christina Aguilera, Kim Burrell, Pink…they vocally scare me, which is why I would love to work with them because I love a challenge. I would love to do a tune with Erykah Badu or Jazmine Sullivan or anyone I vocally idolize.

NL: If you could do an internship with any artist and learn from them first-hand, who would that be?

JJ: Oh my God. I would have to say Beyoncé. Ahead of everything, I just want to see her to see if she’s real and just to ask ‘how are you doing this? How are you conquering the world like this?’ I just think she’s amazing. I would kind of sit in and make notes.

'Essex' Lauren: 'I've got Beyoncé thighs'

Klaudia//March 15, 2011
The Only Way is Essex star Lauren Goodger has spoken about her body image after posing for a new bikini shoot. Speaking to Closer magazine, Goodger said that she still wants to lose another half-a-stone, despite recently cutting her weight down to 9st 7lbs. "I'm one of those people who loses weight quickly, but puts it on just as quickly. If I train and eat healthily you can notice, and if I drink and eat rubbish you can notice," she said. "I'd like to get to nine stone. If I go below that my mum will tell me I look too thin! I'm a size 10 generally, but some of my clothes are a size eight so it would be nice to get into them by the summer." Goodger blamed filming of the ITV2 reality show for her weight gain last year, commenting: "Thankfully, my tummy stays quite flat but extra weight shows on my arms, face and legs." However, the reality TV star said that the one area she is proud of is her "Beyoncé thighs", which she said her ex-boyfriend Mark Wright found "sexy".

Ne-Yo Defends Beyonce 'Dis' Statements

Klaudia//March 15, 2011
When a comment from Ne-Yo hit the Internet in which the songwriter said that he wished he could have kept the Beyoncé hit "Irreplaceable" for himself, some took it as a dis to the star. "One song that I gave away and didn't want to, but it's actually a good thing that I did, is Beyonce's 'Irreplaceable'. I honestly wrote that song for myself, but that song taught me a very interesting lesson: Many women don't think that differently. ... However, a man singing it comes across a little bit misogynistic, a little bit mean," Ne-Yo, who wrote the song, said in an interview. When it was implied on Twitter that Ne-Yo was dissing the Sasha Fierce star with his comments, the singer/songwriter defended himself. "Aiight my dude. Send me the link to where I said ANYTHING disrespectful about Beyonce, PLEASE! Dying to hear this," he wrote. "Just heard the audio where I supposedly dissed Beyonce. ARE Y'ALL SERIOUS!?! Did y'all even listen to what I said!?!" Ne-Yo then continued to tweet his anger toward those who misunderstood what he said. "I said I originally wrote the song for me. That's true, so OF COURSE I didn't want to give it away originally. IT WAS FOR ME," he wrote. "Once I realized how the song comes across if sung by a guy, that's when I decided to give it away. HOW IS THAT DISSING BEYONCE!?! She took the song and made it a smash, NOBODY can deny that ... "You know what? At first I was apologetic about what the hacker said, now that I've heard the audio myself, not so much," he continued. "Y'all should listen a lil' harder before you start dissin' people. Makes you look real dumb. I'm tired of being nice to dumb people. ... Bottom line, Beyonce is my friend. To HELL with anybody that ain't SMART enough to understand what I truly meant."

Thierry Mugler: Beyoncé is better than Madonna!

Klaudia//March 6, 2011
French designer Thierry Mugler, who designed all the dresses for Beyoncé’s last tour, gave an interview to Paris-Match. Of course he gives her much praise and also bashes Madonna, whom he never worked with… “Beyoncé is THE showgirl! She works non-stop. She’s a hundred times better than Madonna when it comes to dancing and singing. Madonna is in her fifties trying to dye her hair blond to look younger. That’s a mistake! People in their 50s needs to use what they’ve got: style, a good haircut and make-up. All those things are so much more important than three small wrinkles.”

Alexis Jordan: Beyoncé gives me life tips

Klaudia//March 6, 2011
Alexis Jordan makes sure she tells her mother all about her life – because Beyoncé Knowles told her to. The 18-year-old star found fame after appearing on the first season on America's Got Talent in 2006. She didn’t win, but after taking part she decided to promote herself on video sharing website YouTube, resulting in Jay-Z and production group Stargate signing her to their label Star Roc/Roc Nation. The rapper has given Alexis a lot of tips, and she has also grown close to his superstar wife Beyoncé. “Yes. I can’t lie – I talk to her a lot,” she said. “When Jay was touring in America, I would sit next to B and she told me, ‘Always talk to your mother,’ and I took that advice.” Jay-Z has also spent a lot of time giving Alexis words of advice. He also mentored Rihanna when she started out, and likes to make sure the young musicians he nurtures can cope with being in the spotlight. “He’s a boss,” she told Look. “He’s given me tips but I can’t tell you what he said – I keep our conversations private.”

Katy Perry on Beyonce

Klaudia//February 9, 2011
“I feel like I’m at a point in my life right now where I could potentially stick around. I don’t feel like a diva, but I think diva is a great and powerful word in the sense of what Beyonce makes it. And maybe I can’t be Beyonce, but maybe I can be Cyndi Lauper. I mean be like her, not be her. That would just be weird.”
