Beyonce passport

The Wall Street Journal inadvertently confirmed rumors that pop singer Beyonce, born Beyonce Gisselle Knowles, is 40 years old.

In an article about superstars over age 40 with the highest record sales in the last 26 years, Beyonce’s name was intentionally omitted as being under 40. A glaring confirmation that Beyonce — who’s stated age is 36 — is actually 40 years old.

I don’t know how true this story is. According to a report on EURweb.com, Janet Jackson’s husband has cut off her brothers financially. Janet has been known to bail her older brothers out of financial difficulties in the past.

“Janet had to change her phone number so that her mom, Katherine, was the only family member with direct access to her,” a source told The National Enquirer. “But now Janet’s brothers try to get to her through their mom.”

Janet married Middle Eastern multi-millionaire Wissam Al Mana in a secret ceremony in February. But now that she is entitled to his money he wants to keep his cash out of her brothers’ hands.

Janet was 5 when her brothers earned worldwide fame as the Jackson 5. The original members include Jackie, 62, Tito, 59, Jermaine, 58, and Marlon, 56. Younger brother Randy, 51, joined the group in 1975.

This Sticky post is bumped from June 25, 2009 — the day the world learned of the shocking news that pop icon Michael Jackson had passed away. It will remain at the top all day to commemorate the 1st anniversary of Michael’s passing.

The post is untouched except for one added photo and the addition of a rare video of the Jackson 5 rehearsing for a concert in 1970. The comments are closed.

 

Michael Jackson fans all over the world are stunned at the news of pop legend Michael Jackson’s death at the age of 50. I am not ashamed to admit I was a huge Michael Jackson fan for as long as I can remember.

As kids in 1974, my youngest brother and me were lucky enough to meet the legend up close and even dance with him in Miami, Florida.

I had a feeling Michael would die young because of all the abuse he put his body through and the drugs he ingested over the years. Still, the news of Michael’s untimely death came as a shock.

After the break, I posted my favorite photos of Michael Jackson, the way I want to remember him, before the surgeries and eccentric behavior.
