Surprise! Beyonce dropped a new self-titled album, Beyonce, without any warning through iTunes last night at midnight, including this one is called “Blue”, dedicated to baby Blue Ivy.

In a press release Bey said, “I didn’t want to release my music the way I’ve done it. I am bored with that. I feel like I am able to speak directly to my fans. There’s so much that gets between the music, the artist and the fans.”

Beyonce’s fifth LP — also labeled as a “visual album”, includes 32 tracks — 14 songs and 17 “complementary videos”.


Blake Shelton told Reality TV Magazine that his wife Miranda Lambert wouldn’t allow him to go to Adam Levine‘s bachelor party saying, “Miranda wouldn’t let me go to an Adam Levine bachelor party no matter what. What’s he gonna have there? Strippers? Models? He’s had that for years now.” Speaking of Adam, he was a guest on Conan’s late show recently and he talked about Blake Shelton, and about hanging at his house which was kind of like Deliverance with him and his wife’s collection of guns. Pink guns too! (For Miranda, of course)

Did Tiger Woods‘ half-brother, Earl Woods Jr, called in a bomb threat yesterday to the government building where he works in Phoenix? Apparently YES, according to Fox. (Wait, really?) More than 100 people were evacuated before Woods told police he made the call as a joke. He was charged with attempting to terrify, intimidate, threaten or harass others.


According to TMZ, Bruce Jenner is having some more cosmetic surgery done to his face…this time he’ll be flattening his Adam’s Apple. WHAT?? He met with a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon for a procedure called a Laryngeal Shave — which yes, smooths out the Adam’s Apple.

The procedure is typically done on patients who are in the first stage of gender reassignment, but Bruce tells TMZ that is NOT the case with him.  He says, “I just never liked my trachea.”

He initially went to the plastic surgeon because the basal cell carcinoma that was removed from his nose in September left a large scar that didn’t heal well.  He wanted plastic surgery for his nose, and says while he was there he consulted the doc on the Laryngeal Shave.
