BEYONCE’S GUNFIRE IN BRAZIL
Did it happen or not!?

Well according to reps for Beyonce, they are denying that any type of shooting took place during her performance in Brazil

As a matter of fact, these same reps state that ALL of her performances in the country have been a success

“The reports of gunfire during Beyoncé’s concert in Brazil that allegedly ended her show early are totally false… Beyoncé played to record crowds on her recent tour in Brazil without incident, including an audience of 60,000 in Sao Paulo on Saturday, February 6 and two sold-out shows in Rio on February 7 and 8”

WHO SAID “NO” TO “WE ARE THE WORLD”?
Can you take a guess?  Can you?  Well you might be surprised…

JAY Z!!!

That’s right!  According to “Mr Empire State Of Mind”… nothing will ever touch the original, and he feels that NO ONE should ever touch it!

“I know everybody is gonna take this wrong: ‘We Are the World,’ I love it, and I understand the point and think it’s great… But I think ‘We Are the World’ is like [Michael Jackson’s] ‘Thriller’ to me. “I don’t ever wanna see it touched. I’m a fan of music. I know the plight and everything that’s going on in Haiti. I applaud the efforts: [Millions have been raised] through text [donations] to Haiti. So I appreciate the efforts and everything, but ‘We are the World’ is [musically] untouchable like ‘Thriller’ is untouchable.”
–  Jay Z

Now don’t get him wrong, he totally understands the reason for the remake & he totally supports the efforts being made towards Haitian relief… BUT the actually remake could have been better

You know he does have a point
