This Week In Beyonce: Obsessed No. 1 No More, Parisian Holiday, Glamour Cover, Dutch Tantrum and More
Well, what's Beyonce been up to this week? For starters, Wolverine blew B's semi-erotic thriller Obsessed out of the No. 1 box-office spot, notching $87 million last weekend. Obsessed was also edged by Matthew McConaughey's equally panned romcom Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, which took in $15.3 mil to Obsessed's $12.2 mil. No matter. Beyonce can sleep better knowing her movie will be the last non-blockbuster-type flick to top the box office until probably September. You know what, she probably doesn't have that much trouble sleeping in the first place. What else? B's all-over-the-place ensemble in Paris drew mixed reviews on Jezebel Monday. One commenter and Tracy Morgan fan wanted to take her skirt "behind the jr. high baseball field and get it pregnant," while another thought "this is like a grown-up version of what I call my 'Nature Store period' where every accessory I owned had little tumbled rocks on it." Personally, Rocks Off digs the shades... and, OK, the legs.
Beyonce also admitted she almost lost it before her universally acclaimed, Etta James-upsetting performance of "At Last" at Barack Obama's Inaugural Ball in January (above). She'll be on the June cover of Glamour . Indian (as in Mumbai) Web site buzz18.com called the pictures "raunchy." Temper, temper: She took a little grief for yelling at the sound engineer during the European leg of her I Am... tour in the Netherlands. Here's the YouTube link. For her next movie role, Beyonce would like to play TV's Catwoman and "Santa Baby" siren Eartha Kitt. Beyonce-related headline of the week: "Beyonce Seems Reasonable."
