BEYONCE SPEAKS UP
As if we needed to hear more about the infamous Kanye-Taylor Swift-VMA’s incident… it looks like someone else has something to say about it… BEYONCE!

Word is… Beyonce believes Mr West was simply sticking up for art…

“Well, I knew his intentions, and I knew he was standing up for art; and he told me before, when they said the nominees, he’s like, ‘You have this award’… When they didn’t call my name, he was, like, completely shocked… And when he walked on the stage, I was like, ‘No, no, no!’ and then he spoke, and I was like, ‘Oh, no, no, no!”
– Beyonce, MTV News

Ok, ok… ok.  So now can we move on w/ our lives!!!

FANTASY ISLAND… REALITY!?
For those of us old enough to remember”The plane, the plane!”… we know that those lines were the build up to another episode of the popular TV series “Fantasy Island”

Well it looks like the island is back… BUT w/ a little twist!

WOTS… the island where people’s fantasies came true… may be coming TRUE in real life!  That’s right “Fantasy Island” may be the next show to hit REALITY TV!!!

There is talk of having the show involve 12 contestants who greet guests to the island, then try to turn those guests fantasies into reality… WILL IT WORK!??

We have no idea… but we do know that each week the “guests” will be the judge & kick off one contestant

The man behind the series is Burnett… the same man behind “The Apprentice”

No deals w/ any networks have been made… YET!

“Willow and I joined Project Zambi to represent all the kids out there who want to make the world a better place… We want to encourage kids everywhere to lend a hand and join us in the spreading the word about how much children who have been orphaned by AIDS in Africa need our help.”
