Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Former Destiny’s Child Member Farrah Franklin Arrested for Disorderly Conduct

Songbird turned jailbird! Farrah Franklin, best known for her very short stint alongside Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams in Destiny’s Child, was arrested for disorderly conduct on Sunday, July 20 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, according to TMZ.

NFL players Da’Quan Bowers and Ricky Sapp went out with Farrah on the beach on Saturday night, and apparently, when they got back to Ricky’s house, Farrah was reportedly wasted and got very crazy! The men eventually called police due to her antics, saying that they thought the former singer might be involved with drugs since she would go to the bathroom for long periods of time. Farrah was found lying down in the front yard of a neighbor, claiming she was going to sleep in the woods. It was reported that police described her as “highly intoxicated,” but said she denied using drugs.

Farrah appeared in Destiny’s Child for five months back in 2000. She, along with Michelle, replaced LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson, but was fired from the group shortly after. Of course, DC continued on as a trio before disbanding in 2006.

“We have to say that Farrah was not kicked out of Destiny’s Child,” Beyonce said on Total Request Live at the time. “She actually did not show up for three major promotional events, one of which was ‘MTV All Access.’ She walked out on [that], and the KUBE Summer Jam was another one in Seattle. You’ll all see that on the [‘All Access’] show. We also had a five-day promotional tour in Australia, which was our first visit there and very important, and she didn’t come. So we all agreed that Farrah and Destiny’s Child should part ways, and we wish her the best in the future. But it wasn’t a management decision, it was a group decision.”

Sad to see Farrah in such disarray! I’m not sure what she’s up to now, but hopefully she gets herself back on track soon.

Beyonce…Slapped!

Superstar Beyonce goes through some sexy costume changes as she returns to the stage on the first night of her 'Mrs Carter World Tour' at Kombank Arena in Belgade, Serbia

Because although we believe in the occasional verbal slap for a select few celebrities, we cannot condone outright violence against people. But now, someone has gone beyond the verbal slap and issued a hand to face that has us standing in place. And before you dare to guess the star that got a little slice of DNA strewn across their visage, we’ll let you know that it is not who you think it might be.

Enter Serbia.
Enter Mrs. Carter.
Enter Beyonce!

Because we could rattle off a laundry list worth of things Bey could be slapped for: spotty lace-fronts, acting attempts, fake pregnancies, Solange, but…we digress! No, one country has given it to the diva something fierce and all we can say is…

Can we get an instant replay?!

In Belgrade, where Beyonce has just begun the first leg of her Mrs. Carter World Tour, the fans obviously ain’t got time for no tomfoolery. So much so that at one point during the show, a fan reached over the barricade, reached all the way back to 1998 when all the original members of Destiny’s Child were in place…and slapped Beyonce across the face. And then another fan (one that obviously saw Dreamgirls and wanted their money back) pulled on her hair. But that’s OK, because everyone knows Bey’s hair is detachable.

Let’s see what happens in the next country Bey drops in. Maybe the next one will cut off those ridiculous protruding tittyball costumes she’s wearing on stage for this tour!

Kelly Rowland: Still Clueless

The other member’s of Destiny’s Child (that child obviously being Beyonce) really need to be sat down and told how it really is because years later, they still claim not to realize that they were just basically glorified members of Beyonce’s group. Even though they get together occasionally for a song here or there, everyone knows that’s only if Beyonce decides to take time out of her mega-packed schedule to give some time and throw a check at Michelle, Kelly’s (and occasionally those other 3 former members’) bank accounts to silence them. Kelly Rowland, the lone original member still left after Beyonce’s father kicked out the rest, recently told Billboard to expect another reunion for the three.

Of sorts.

“It’s not a Destiny’s Child track. It’s me featuring Beyonce and Michelle”, Rowland told Billboard magazine.

Isn’t that basically what Beyonce has been doing/saying for years?

kelly-rowland

Let’s wait and see what this track is all about before we go any further in our analysis. At the end of the day, the other girls deserve a few more checks any way they can get one!

Keyshia Cole vs. Beyonce?

As if this is even a contest? One of them has a truckload of hit songs, Grammys, millions upon millions, and a baby daddy that could buy half of the Tri-State area if he wanted. The other one? Well, at least she can afford hair dye to keep her hair blonde. For now.

R&B singer Keyshia Cole, who has been having a recent spate of bad publicity, keeps the bad ish rolling right along. First, she came after Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams immediately after their Super Bowl performance. Michelle, being from the house of Not The One, proceeded to verbally slap Keyshia on Twitter, since that’s the place to go these days And now Keyshia, who obviously is not making enough checks from her reality series ventures, has come after Queen Bey herself.

EPIC FAIL!

Key-Key had this to say about Bey-Bey concerning her newly released single, ‘Bow Down/I Been On’…

“Can’t stand when people all self righteous when it’s convenient it makes them look good. Lmao! But can still talk s–t when convenient 2 FOH.”

Beyonce’s Twitter fans have of course are now gunning for Keyshia in a slew of tweets that suggest Ms. Cole needs a hit record ASAP.

They’re probably right.

Hey Keyshia Cole, Destiny’s Child Member Gets Reality Show

michellewilliams11

Peeps be mocking Michelle Williams during the Halftime performance of the Super Bowl (ahem Keyshia Cole) but got damn, girlfriend is going up, up, up. Heck with documentaries, Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child just got her own reality television series that she is going to use to promote her upcoming gospel album.

According to executive producer Tara Long, the show will not only follow Williams but also her sisterss as her new album is released, “We’re very excited to expand upon our relationship with Michelle on this new collaboration that will provide fans with a peek into her everyday life.”

As for Williams, you better bet she is over the moon with the new opportunity. She said, “Working together on my new gospel album and television series, I am excited to share with everyone a behind-the-scenes look at the inspiration and journey of recording for the album, performing, fun family times and other unforgettable experiences out together with my dear sisters.”

Williams new album is currently untitled, but is expected to be released sometime this year. I’m guessing the release date will coincide with the show launch…just a hunch.

Congrats Michelle! Haters gon hate!

The big question is, will YOU be watching?

One Of These Women Looks Fabulous….

beyonce-kelly-rowland-grammys-fashionThe other one?

Not so much!

So, please someone out there that has not been handed a check under the table by Team Knowles-Carter…explain to me how Beyonce in her boring black and white pantsuit with flapper sleeves…managed to get on Best Dressed lists of ANY kind after The Grammys? Is her pull so deep that she can basically roll out of bed, put on Ivy Blue’s bib and be claimed a style icon?!

Meanwhile, Kelly Rowland, the hottest member of Destiny’s Child (yeah, I said it, and I dare you to prove otherwise) went far and above the call of duty to pull off the look of the night as Beyonce vowed revenge in a corner. Her strategically placed cut-outs on her black dress proved that although Beyonce may have more checks, there are some things that checks simply cannot buy.

Nor can plastic surgeons.

Can you just imagine if Beyonce had tried to wedge her snausages into this dress? Because, the last time I checked, Photoshop was still only relegated to photos, not live red carpet events.

Team Kelly.

Suck it, Bey!

Keyshia Cole Slams Destiny’s Child Super Bowl Performance

destinys-child

Ok well, not exactly Destiny’s Child’s performance but Michelle Williams’ performance rather! And Williams is pissed!

Michelle Williams from Destiny’s Child is now speaking out about the tweet that Keyshia Cole sent out to her millions of followers on Twitter in regards to the Super Bowl half time performance.

It was a straight up diss slamming Williams for not adding any worth to the show, or so Cole said.

Keyshia put Michelle on blast for “f**kin up the groove” of the Destiny’s Child reunion.

But Michelle took to her Twitter to retweet the falsely attribution and throw in her own two cents with “I’m Destiny’s Child and you are Frankie’s Child… You do the math.”

It wasn’t long after that Williams refuted the tweet saying, “I never tweeted that! Be wise and check the ORIGINAL timeline before you spread more mess! Once again…God bless!”

THEN, she went on over to her Facebook page to try to clear it all up with a post of positivity saying, “It was an honor to share the stage with my sisters Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé on Sunday night. To all my ladies, we must learn to stick together and support each other. The incredible Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson did an amazing job too! Thank you to my sister Beyonce for sharing your moment with Destiny’s Child. Love you!”

Keyshia is entitled to her opinion, but poor Michelle has been dealing with being the least popular Destiny’s Child member for years. Woman is fed up! Fed up indeed, but getting paid!

Michelle Williams: Super Bowl No Go!

michellewilliams1

There have been rumors swirling about this weekend’s upcoming Super Bowl halftime show featuring Beyonce. Peeps have been saying that Destiny’s child would be reuniting during the show on Sunday, but Michelle Williams is trying to throw us all off by saying it’s not happening.

“I’m going to be in the musical Fela!,” she told WRUG Media. “I hate to disappoint the people and tell them that it’s not true.” Come on girl! Come clean!

It is true that Williams is starring in the Tony Award-winning show and that kicks off on Tuesday in Washington DC. BUT…there are two shows at the Sidney Harman Hall on Super Bowl Sunday that Williams will NOT be in that day.

So where will Williams be?

Sitting in the audience watching Bey rock the stage ALONE on Super Bowl Sunday?

Girllllll, come on! Don’t play!

Of the reunion rumors, Williams was quoted as saying, “I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry. But we did record a song with each other before the holidays.” And even though she claims the reunion isn’t taking place during Sunday’s game, a reunion may still happen. “We have talked about it,” she said. “You know, one day soon.

And why do I think there will be a reunion on Sunday? Well, “Destiny’s Child – Love Songs” is set for release, the Tuesday AFTER the big game day.

I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Big news for Destiny’s Child fans! The group is set to release a new compilation album on January 29!

Straight from lead singer Beyoncé‘s website, the album, Love Songs, will be comprised of Destiny’s Child classics recorded between 1997-2004. Love Songs will also feature “Nuclear,” the first new Destiny’s Child recording since 2004! Produced by Pharrell Williams (who cowrote the track with DC’s Michelle Williams, James Fauntleroy and Lonny Bereal), “Nuclear” features vocal production by Beyoncé and Lonny Bereal. The compilation will be released under Legacy Recordings.

The website added:

In addition to the new track, “Nuclear,” Love Songs balances romantic, passionate and sensual selections from 1998’s Destiny’s Child (“Killing Time,” “Second Nature”); 1999’s The Writing’s On The Wall (“Now That She’s Gone,” “If You Leave” featuring Next, “Temptation”); 2001’s Survivor (“Brown Eyes,” “Emotion”) and 2004’s Destiny Fulfilled (“Cater 2 U,” “If,” “T-Shirt,” “Love”). Added treats for fans include the Timbaland remix of “Say My Name” (originally released on 2002’s This Is The Remix) and Kelly Rowland’s “Heaven” (a key track from Simply Deep, her 2002 solo album).”

Pre-orders are now available on Amazon! I am BEYOND excited for this album! I was thinking about Destiny’s Child a few weeks ago, wondering if they would ever reunite for an album, a song, whatever. Of course, I would love for there to be a completely new album filled with music, but beggars can’t be choosers! I can’t wait to hear these new tracks!
