Yesterday (yes, Christmas day) I received a call from a newspaper friend over in London (my birthplace), who informed me that rumors are running rampant over there about Beyonce and the new X Factor winner, Alexandra Burke.

It seems Beyonce is busy courting the extraordinarily beautiful Alex something fierce!

My friend said Bey has been burning up the phone lines calling Alex daily. And she said Bey rcently sent Alex on a shopping expedition to high end boutiques in London on her dime so Alex could buy clothes to wear with her on tour.

My source said Beyonce, 27, was sooo impressed with Alex that she has invited the 20-year-old to go on the road with her and record a single together!

According to The People newspaper, Alex couldn't believe her ears when her idol told the show's producer Simon Cowell, "I want to work with this lady. She is going to be a massive star."

A source told The People newspaper:

"In the dressing room, Beyoncé told Alex she'd like to work with her in the future and suggested the possibility of recording a new single together. She also said she'd love Alex to take part in her UK tour, possibly as a support act, although nothing is set in stone yet." (LINK)

They say Beyonce and Alex first laid eyes on each other during rehearsals for X Factor -- and the two have been inseparable ever since!

Burke is the record holder for most singles sold in a 24-hour period in London. Her single "Hallelujah" sold 105,000 copies in one day. But she certainly isn't an established artist. And nothing the 20-year-old has accomplished musically warrants all this attention that Bey is lavishing on her.

I hear Alex is so smitten with Bey that she has sworn off men. She recently told a fashion magazine that men were a waste of her time and space! (LINK)

Does any Beyonce Stan ever remember Bey showing THIS much interest in another woman?

    I smell hating...............

  • lialin

    personally i dont care for either one of them bey or alex...alex is too much for a silly x factor winner.. i dont know who she thinks she is and bey... well... why i cant knock her hustle i just dont like HER she so fake and extra all the time... i would love to hear about a scandal between them getting in cahoots or something. beyonce could use some negative light in her perfect robot-like life.

  • SlimA

    Sandra, you are grasping for straws with this one.

    @ lialin

    You know what? I appreciate your honest regarding B. So many people on here wanna hate on her for no good reason and they give bullshyt excuses for their hate. The fact that you simple say that you don't like her is enough. You don't have to throw dirt on her or make up shyt. If only other people knew the difference between opinion and hate!

  • keely107

    Hermosa where u been mama?

  • http://myspace.com/erikamagaly Hermosa

    Hey Keely!

    Girl, I've been working!

    The VP of our company requested my help bc, apparently, he's backed up on his work! I just hope this means a promotion/raise or just a raise would be kindly apreciated, lol. In the afternoons I walk my a$$ to his office to help him out and I'm not on my desk. I have a computer where I'm working but they put so much security on it, I can't even access my work email so I won't even attempt to come on here. That will get my a$$ fired!

    How was you holiday???

  • keely107

    It was great, very reflective for the difference a year makes, if u feel me. My b-day is Monday so I took off all next week. I know exactly what u mean about "helping out" the suits, and yes a raise is always necessary!

  • http://myspace.com/erikamagaly Hermosa

    Well, if I don't see Monday around here, HAPPY BIRFFFFDAY! My Christmas was a bit different. My g-ma passed away about 2 years ago and it just hasn't been the same. Our house was the house everybody went too but my g-ma was the glue that held us together and now we don't have that. We went from having 50 ppl in our house to just my immediate family. Only my momma, 2 sis, my bro and me. We ate some tamales, played monopoly, watched Soul Food (my mom's favorite movie!) and opened gifts!

    It was different but definitely very happy. I'm not complaining!

  • keely107

    Hermosa I feel u on that, and your g-ma is who I wanna be for my kids. After my g-ma passed on my family kinda went their own ways as well and never recovered, so my focus now is to make sure my kids are close and "we" are close knit so that I am not the only common denominator between them all. I definitely feel you! Soul Food, I guess that's a good X-mas movie. Thanku for the b-day shout, and no I wont be here all next week but you know I will be wondering what them fools K-Dub and Kym done said!

  • shay1

    Hey Keely and Hermosa...... working like me? :-)

  • cocoa49

    oh stop now....lol....beyonce sees an up and coming talent and she grabbed her before anyone else. rumor was that 50 cent wanted to sign her or work with her also.

  • http://myspace.com/erikamagaly Hermosa

    Hey Shay-

    Yup, working til 5:30. I'm not busy so I'm just browsing the internet all day bc I definately don't have money shop on line. LOL

  • shay1

    Im here til 5pm. And I feel ya...I just came back from being out..not too many people out.

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    AT LEAST YOU STATED THESE AS RUMORS. I THINK PEOPLE ARE TAKING WHAT ALEXANDRA SAID IN HER INTERVIEW AFTER WINNING X-FACTOR AND RUNNING WITH IT.

  • keely107

    @Shay: Hey, yep at work, and disguisted with my pockets. Going on a shopping frenzy just makes me want more money!!! Hermosa, I surely am not wanting to see all the online sales today!

  • pointhimout

    laid eyes on each other. too funny. well, maybe bey's tryna be a good mentor. i've only had a couple good ones. the rest weren't worth a damn....

  • iscream

    Yes Sandra she showed this much interest in Solonge, Kelly & Michelle....

    & if X factor is anything like idol in ther USA then this is probably BS. They lock those contestants (sp) in contracts.

    Maybe she did it as a congrat's gift since she did win & she won singing Bey's song.

  • Mississippi16

    Rumor has it that Bey and Jay are trying to fulfill their contractual obligations so they can start their own label. Bey is just courting this girl so that she and Jay can continue to make their $$$.

    Ummmmm .... I just awoke from a good nap.
    {Stretching}

    Munchos & intensemocha will fact check on Bey. I will comment further based on there follow up, I haven't heard any such thing though.

  • up_ur_standards

    SMDH***
    It's called mentoring...post-holiday hating cheer!!!
    umm umm umm

  • teecee

    wow.... whats wrong with just being nic to some one younger than you ? if she just 20 and im sure bey is just helping her out.... there is nothing wrong with mentoring or having a mentor. you are reaching....

  • ReadTheBlog

    Beyonce is not nice...all she sees is an opportunity to make some $ since she hasn't been able to oun the UK. But you all know Kelly is makding a good job over there. Beyonce is turning into a corporate thug and wants to keep her boot on someone's neck is all.

    THIS IS A VIDEO OF ALEXANDRA, SHE EXPLAINS THE "I hear Alex is so smitten with Bey that she has sworn off men. She recently told a fashion magazine that men were a waste of her time and space"
    LIKE SOMONE ELSE POINTED OUT ALOT OF WRITERS TAKE A PIECE OF AN INTERVIEW AND TWIST IT TO FIT THEIR OWN OPINION. ALEXANDRA SAID THAT SHE ASKED BEYONCE IF SHE COULD OPEN FOR HER ON HER TOUR ANS SHE SAID YES, AND ALSO SHE ASKED HER IF THEY COULD DO A DUET AGAIN AND BEYONCE SAID YES. ALL THAT EXTRA STUFF IN YOUR POST SANDRA IS ALL NEW TO ME. BEYONCE IS ON VACTION, SHE'LL BE BACK ON THE SCENE MID JANUARY.

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    ISCREAM, I AGREE VERY MUCH WITH YOU RESPONSE, IT ALREADY PRE DETERMINED THAT THE WINNER WILL BE UNDER SIMON'S MANAGEMENT COMPANY.

  • jazi65

    The only reason bey is interested in this girl is because she's not selling over there as well as the US..So, hook up with the X factor winner and your sales will go up.

    Will this greedy #)Q*$ stop using people and let them shine? I doubt it.

  • terika83

    yeah right, bey's not gay...idk about alex but bey saw an opportunity to make some money off of what's big in europe right now...and noticed she said join her on her UK tour...if she took her anywhere else no one would know who she is...that's nothing but more ticket sales right there...business woman.
