Ringo Starr, Paula McCartney, Beyonce, Taylor Swift and More To Perform at the 2014 Grammy Awards

Please followTMW on Twitter and like M.A. Cassata on Facebook.

In case you missed it….Beyonce and Jay Z have been confirmed to perform at the Grammy Awards this weekend.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Taylor Swift, Daft Punk, and former Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, are already set to perform during music’s biggest night and now two more superstars have been confirmed to hit the stage on Sunday.

Last week, reports surfaced suggesting the Crazy in Love hitmaker would open the show, while Madonna was rumored to be taking to the stage alongside one of the night’s nominees.

Eminem and Beyonce Rule the New Year’s Music Charts

Please follow TMW on Twitter and like us on  Facebook.

Beyonce and Eminem have started the new year as they ended 2013 — on top of the U.S. charts.

Beyonce’s self-titled surprise Christmas treat album rings in 2014 as America’s top choice for a third week. Thanks to a solid year-ending 310,000 sales week, the new release has sold over one million units – in just 17 days.

She also becomes the first artist to land three consecutive 300,000-sales weeks since 2009.

One Direction move up a spot to two with Midnight Memories, while Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 also rises to three.

The British boy band celebrate another one million seller this week – five weeks after releasing Midnight Memories.

Meanwhile, Eminem and Rihanna’s The Monster rules the Hot 100 singles countdown, keeping Pitbull and Ke$ha’s Timber off the top of the chart. It gives Rihanna another countdown milestone – she becomes one of only three acts to land 51 or more weeks at number one with her 13th chart-topper. Only Mariah Carey (79) and the Beatles (59) have more weeks at the top.

Rounding out the Hot 100’s top three is OneRepublic’s Counting Stars.

Beyonce Fills New England Walmart with Christmas Cheer

Please follow TMW on Twitter and M.A. Cassata on  Facebook.

Pop star Beyonce was a hit in person this weekend when she ducked into a Walmart store in suburban Boston, Us Weekly said.

Beyonce schmoozed with her fellow shoppers and picked up a Christmas toy for 2-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, as well as a copy of her new self-titled CD.

“It’s exciting to see it in person,” Beyonce said while looking over the record rack in a video of the visit provided to US Weekly.

Beyonce made no effort to play it low-key. She commandeered the stores intercom to give a shout out to the approximately 750 shoppers in the aisles. “It’s Beyonce,” she shouted. “And I stopped by the store today because my record has arrived.”

She topped the visit off by picking up the first $50 of everyone’s tab and wishing everyone, “Merry, merry Christmas from Beyonce!”

Beyonce Shocks Fans With Image Makeover

                 

Pop superstar Beyonce has followed in the footsteps of Miley Cyrus by chopping off her hair in a drastic image makeover.
The Irreplaceable singer is now sporting a short, pixie crop and she showed off her new look in a series of shots posted on her Instagram.com page.
Beyonce is seen stroking her short, blonde-streaked hair while looking into a mirror.
The pictures were uploaded on Wednesday, just days after the singer completed the North American leg of her Mrs Carter Show World Tour in New York City.
It is not known if Beyonce’s image overhaul is related to an incident last month when her flowing tresses were mangled by the blades of an industrial fan as she performed a show in Montreal, Canada.
Cyrus surprised her followers last year by having her hair cut into a short, punkystyle but has since revealed she received a barrage of online abuse over the cut, saying, “The names I’ve been called since I cut my hair… Everyone said I was a lesbian but I’m like, ‘Being a lesbian isn’t a bad thing. So if you think I look like I’m a lesbian, I’m not offended. You can call me much worse.’ I’ve been called much worse. Being a lesbian is a compliment more than what else they call me.”

Beyonce Extends World Tour

R&B superstar Beyonce will be on the road until the end of the year after extending her world tour with a long list of new concert dates.

The Crazy In Love hitmaker has already brought The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour to Europe and North America, and now she is adding a Latin American leg in September and a second trek across North America in December.

Her Latin American itinerary kicks off in Fortaleza, Brazil on 8 September with stops in Venezuela, Mexico and Puerto Rico, while her added North American jaunt will take her across Canada and several U.S. states – with a homecoming show in her native Houston, Texas on 10 December.

The gigs will wrap in Boston, Massachusetts on 20 December.

Video: Beyonce Has Fan Removed From Concert For Slapping Her Butt

Beyonce calmly had a fan thrown out of her Copenhagen concert on Monday after the man slapped her on the butt. The man has not been identified.

The incident happened after Beyonce held the microphone out so the man could sing part of ‘Irreplaceable.’ Beyonce stopped briefly to tell the man that he had to leave. “I’m gonna have you escorted out of here, all right?” she said.

Beyonce continued singing ‘Irreplaceable’ after the encounter. A fan caught the incident on tape and posted it on YouTube. Beyonce has not commented.

The singer kicked off her Mrs. Carter World Tour in Serbia last month. Concerts are scheduled in Switzerland, Italy, France and Eastern Europe. The tour will make its way to the U.S. in June and will end two months later with a final show at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn.

Earlier this month, Beyonce was forced to cancel a concert in Antwerp, Belgium due to exhaustion, dehydration, and doctor’s orders to rest. The cancellation fueled rumors she is pregnant with her second child with husband Jay Z. The couple is already parents to 1-year-old daughter Blue.

Beyonce Lip-Synched at Inauguration

Beyonce lip-synced The Star-Spangled Banner during President Barack Obama’s inauguration in Washington, D.C. on Monday.

The singer wowed a crowd of more than 800,000 people as Obama was sworn in for a second term by performing a flawless rendition of the National Anthem, backed by the U.S. Marine Band.

She has received nothing but rave reviews for her performance, but now a representative for her backing band, Kristin DuBois, has confessed Beyonce was just mouthing the words to a pre-recorded studio version of the track.

She tells the New York Post, “All music is pre-recorded for the ceremony because there are so many eventualities and conditions that day. We performed, live, the band. But we received last-minute word that Beyonce was going to use the pre-recorded vocal track. Those were the instructions we were given.”

It’s still unclear why the Grammy winner chose not to sing live, like fellow performer Kelly Clarkson, but band director Colonel Michael J. Colburn reveals Beyonce only had one day to prepare for the gig since she has been busy rehearsing for the Super Bowl half-time show next month.

On Monday he told news website Buzzfeed, “As soon as we get information from the Presidential Inaugural Committee (about) who the guest artists are going to be, we make contact with them, find out how we can prepare arrangements that will really kind of flatter their voices – of course in the right key.

“We had Kelly in over the weekend to rehearse and record. Beyonce, she’s getting ready for the Super Bowl, so we didn’t have a chance to do anything with her until last night.”

Beyonce Confirms Super Bowl Halftime Performance


Beyonce has confirmed rumors she is set to headline the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show. On her official website Tuesday, the singer wrote “Countdown to Touchdown” and posted a picture of herself with Feb. 3, 2013 written on her face. No other details have been released.
Madonna headlined last year’s halftime show. She was joined onstage by Cee Lo Green, LMFAO, Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.
Beyonce, who has a 9-month-old daughter with husband Jay-Z, most recently made headlines for pulling out of Clint Eastwood’s remake of “A Star is Born.” The 31-year-old was set to play a promising young star who falls in love with an older performer. She was forced to drop out of the project because of her busy schedule.
“I was looking forward to the production of ‘A Star Is Born’ and the opportunity to work with Clint Eastwood. For months we tried to coordinate our schedules to bring this remake to life but it was just not possible. Hopefully in the future we will get a chance to work together,” she told E! News in a statement.
