Janelle and Monica at Outkast Reunion concert

Natural beauties Monica Brown, right, and Janelle Monáe posed together at Outkast's Georgia Reunion concert at CounterPoint Music Festival in Rome, GA over the weekend. For some reason the group chose to perform in Rome (of all places) rather than in their hometown of Atlanta. But that didn't stop hardcore fans from making the trip to Kingston Downs in the driving rain to watch their favorite group belt out their hits.

Josh Homme Jay Z

At least one A-lister hates aging rap mogul Jay Z.

Josh Homme, the Queens of the Stone Age singer/guitarist, played Jay Z's Made in America festival recently, but Homme says he was not impressed with the aging rapper, his festival or the champagne he is currently peddling for dollars.

In an interview with CBC Radio 2?s “Strombo Show”, Homme referred to Beyonce's husband as a "kook". Homme was perturbed because Jay Z's security frisked him and his bandmates and searched their bags, like they were former crack dealers from Brooklyn.

Riley Cooper suspended

This Riley Cooper story has gone from laughable to ludicrous. The 25-year-old Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver was drunk when he used a racial slur at a country music concert. Cooper spazzed out at a black security guard who wouldn't let him backstage to meet Kenny Chesney. "I'll fight every nigger in here," Cooper said.

Normally when a redneck drops the n-word in a room full of rednecks, no one raises an eyebrow. But a concertgoer captured Riley's tirade on a cell phone and uploaded it to YouTube.

The response from the professional football league was swift. Cooper was fined an undisclosed sum of money, and he was forced to apologize more than once.

But that wasn't enough. In a tweet posted today, the Eagles front office announced that Cooper will be suspended from "all team activities" so he can "seek counseling."

Beyonce Slapped and Hair Pulled at Concert

Burlesque singer Beyonce got more than she bargained for when she waded into the audience during her world tour concert in Serbia last week.

The 32-year-old singer was wading through the crowd with a bodyguard close on her tail. But that didn't stop one fanatic from slapping her while another fan grabbed a handful of her weave.

Grainy video shows Beyonce getting bumped and jostled as she struggled to walk through the frenzied crowd. Beyonce needs better security when her tour pulls into Duluth, GA on July 12.

But all jokes aside, I hope she's going to be okay. No one deserves to be assaulted while they're on their job.

Watch the video after the break.
