Word on the curb is that she’s let go of yet another business manager so that she and hubby Hov can have complete control of her career. According to Mail Online reports: Beyonce has reportedly parted ways from her manager so that she can run her own affairs with the help of husband Jay-Z. The 32-year-old singer is believed to have ditched her general manager, Live Nation Executive Faisal Durrani, the Daily Mirror reports. Durrani, 32, is one of several managers that Beyonce has dismissed over the years so that she can run her career with Jay-Z, 44. In 2011, the Texan singer sacked her father, Matthew Knowles, who managed the star for 21 years since she was in Destiny’s Child in 1990. She became the president of Parkwood Entertainment, the entertainment and management company that she set up in 2008. But now Beyonce has also allegedly dismissed general manager Faisal so that she can gain even more independence with her husband, who plays an unofficial managerial role. A source told the Daily Mirror: ‘Jay has been heavily involved in Beyonce’s career for years, and was instrumental in organising the Mrs Carter Show World Tour. But he isn’t officially regarded as her manager – she really is independent.’The insider added that the couple, who got married in 2008 and have a two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, want to put family life first. ‘Now the couple have Blue, she wants to make sure her family come first at all times, especially as there’s talk of them adding to the brood,’ the source added.

Wow! So where is the one place that you can not go with helmets on without taking them off? Gold star for anyone who guessed the airport…yeah TSA is funny like that! And we guess TMZ cameras knew the answer to the question too because they showed up and tried to get “lucky” at LAX! They were on a mission to get a pic of Daft Punk without their helmets on!
They were successful! Take a look at who TMZ says is the real Daft Punk without helmets in the video below!

Yesterday (Jan. 28), it was revealed that Madonna would be teaming up with Miley Cyrus for the Bangerz singer’s MTV Unplugged special. But now it seems that the two are going a little bit country for tonight’s show.
According to Billboard, Miley is embracing her Nashville roots and giving her fans country friend renditions of her songs like “4 x 4,” “Do My Thing” and “#Getitright.” She will also cover Dolly Parton’s “Jolene,” a song she covered in 2012, proving she hadn’t lost her country flair just yet.

A video recently surfaced of rapper DMX crashing a wedding party, which was playing “X Gon’ Give it to Ya.” DMX rapped every word to the track and interacting with the wedding guests. At the end of the tape you can see DMX asking “where’s the groom,” and giving the guy a hug. This event occurred on 1.25.14 via a party bus in NYC.
This is dope.
