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.

Yesterday, Beyonce Knowles dropped her latest music video, “Formation”, to make sure all eyes are on her leading up to the Super Bowl this Sunday.
Supposedly, this lame music video broke the Internet last night. I guess it doesn’t take much to break the Internet these days.

Did you happen to catch Lifetime’s new reality TV show The Jacksons: Next Generation? The season premiere aired on Oct. 2 to mixed reviews.
The Jacksons: Next Generation stars the sons of Jackson 5 original member Tito Jackson, Taj, TJ and Taryll Jackson. You probably remember the brothers as R&B boy band 3T back in the day.
Troubled singer Chris Brown, left, and rapper A$AP Rocky, center, performed live in concert at the JW Marriott Hotel in Cannes, France, on Thursday. I’m surprised France allowed Brown into the country.

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.
Clarence Burke Jr., lead singer and guitarist of the sibling group The Five Stairsteps died Sunday. Burke’s death, one day after he turned 64, was confirmed by his manager, Joe Marno.
The R&B group once regarded as “the first family of soul” were the precursor for sibling R&B groups such as The Jackson 5, The Sylvers and Brighter Side of Darkness.
