Beyonce Knowles-Carter

Beyonce was seen heading to an event, wearing a gold dress and matching ponytail Wednesday afternoon in New York City. Bey's ponytail was apparently the reason she showed up dead last to the Met Ball on Sunday. According to one of her highly paid wig keepers, salon owner Neal Farina, Bey's hair was supposed to be an "upswept Asian-inspired Chignon" -- whatever that means. "We were in the elevator on the way down, and she looks at me and says 'Neal, I want to change my hair, will you change my hair?'", Farinah told US Weekly.

Kerry Washington meets Cicely Tyson

Scandal actress Kerry Washington, left, met the esteemed character actress Cicely Tyson for the first time at "The Paley Center for Media NY Presents A Tribute to African-American Achievements in Television" event last night. Cicely was reportedly among the women in the running to be the first black woman on American currency. Abolitionist Harriet Tubman, who died in 1913, won the top honor.

She's lived through dinosaurs, Lucy (Australopithecus), the birth of Jesus, the resurrection of Jesus, the Holucast, slavery, Titantic, 9/11 and the Ferguson riots.

    Reports range for this lady being anywhere from 81-90. There was an article out a few years ago where they say they cant even verify from damn TAX and census records. If she is indeed 90..I am like Roger Friedman who wrote that article. I want the name and number of everyone involved. :rules:

    2013...

    How old is Cicely Tyson really? Her official age on the imdb.com and other sources puts her at 79. That would seem about right. An article from People magazine’s archives, published in 1974 when she was nominated for an Oscar for “Sounder,” would seem to agree.

    But today’s New York Times says she’s 88 years old. A publicist for “The Trip to Bountiful” tells me: “She doesn’t dispute it.” At the premiere last night, another sider said the cast of the play asked her, and again, she didn’t quarrel with 88. The publicist said that both the Times and CBS had done comparisons, looking at old stories to figure it out.

    I looked at this woman up close last night under photographers’ bright lights. If she’s 88, I want the name and number of everyone involved. She’s discovered the fountain of youth.

    So which is it? Seventy nine or eighty eight? I checked with some databases today that are based on census and tax records. I was convinced I would come up with 70. And lo and behold, I’m getting the higher number. Gasp. Tyson is on stage for two hours, in almost every scene of “Bountiful.”

    Her famous husband, Miles Davis, was born in 1926. That would have him made seven years older than Tyson in the original thinking. But if she’s 88, Tyson–born as Cicely Richards in Harlem–was born in 1924. If so, she was around 50, not 40, at the time of “Sounder.” And she was two years older than Davis

  • whitty hutton

    I'ma need Lupita to get rid of the cape...other than that I love this look. Anything looks gorgeous on her chocolate skin.

    Me no likey the afro wig on Cicely...and def not in jet black. She's gotta be at least as old as Miss Jane Pittman but still looks flawless.

    Kerry got some big teef.

    That is all.

    Now this is a great array of pics.

    Loving B's classic look and I don't say that about her often. She's giving serious Jackie O in that dress.

    Lupita is just a chocolate doll baby. Her whole look is perfection from head to toe. Wonder what's up next for her.

    Jamie's pic with the babies is too cute.

    Kerry looks adorable. She's been missing the mark for me lately with her fashion choices, but I love this look. Queen Cicely almost nailed it, but the wig looks too wiggish around the hairline. She needs to holler at Solange's wigologist. Whoever they are they are killing the game.

    That is how my pediatrician was. His azz was old when I was little. My sister 11 years older than me. Said his azz was old when SHE was lil too. :rofl: He practiced til Dub10 was about 4. So until 6 years ago. Still kicking it. Still remember all his patient names, our parents names. Everything.

  • kamadiva

    Yes, Cicely was older when she started, not acting until 1951, so she was about 27-30 (depending on if you think she was born in 1924).
