It's Beyonce's 32nd B'Day! Here are 32 lessons her lyrics taught us

Queen Bey knows what success feels like. She’s a successful businesswoman, a successful wife, a successful mother, a successful singer … basically, if you look up “success” in the dictionary, there will be a ridiculously gorgeous, uber glamorous shot of Beyonce’s face.

So today, to celebrate the 32nd birthday of the Queen of Pop, we’ve rounded up 32 important life lessons that we might never have learned if it weren’t for Bey belting them out (while also performing a challenging dance routine in high heels).

Watch 'Cinderonce': The Cinderella musical set entirely to Beyonce songs -- VIDEO

If you’ve ever wondered what happened to former American Idol finalist Todrick Hall and/or what would happen if Beyoncé’s music narrated fairy tales, well, today is your lucky day. Turns out Hall is now a “YouTube personality” who had the same question you did! Only Hall has an answer for you.

What happens when Beyoncé’s music narrates fairy tales is simple: Cinderella — sorry, Cinderoncé — finds her “Freakum Dress,” the “Single Ladies” get their groove on at the ball, and Prince Charming ultimately puts Cinderoncé’s “Love on Top.” And did we mention RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Shangella shows up as Cinderoncé’s fairy drag mother?

Sorry, Cinderella, but we might have to choose Cinderoncé’s version of things. It’s more upbeat — and fierce.

Watch Cinderoncé below:

Beyonce's mane battles one of her wind fans during Montreal concert

Last night, while singing “Halo” during the Montreal stop of her Mrs. Carter tour, Queen B found herself caught in one of her many stage wind fans. Stage hands tried to help, eventually getting her free. And Beyonce? She powered through the song like the Queen that she is, never missing a beat.

It was quite a hairy situation for Beyonce; it seems that no matter how hard she sang, her fans just wouldn’t let her go — it even became the mane attraction. It’s unbeweavable that she was able to sing such a hair-raising rendition of “Halo” (OK, I’m done.) Beyonce playfully instagrammed the event after her concert and if you want to check out the instantly-viral moment, just look below. READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Lawrence headlines TIME 100 list

TIME magazine prefers to be diplomatic and doesn’t rank its list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World, which was announced today. But let’s be frank: in the world of entertainment, Jennifer Lawrence is nonpareil. The 22-year-old Oscar winner and star of the Hunger Games blockbuster franchise was lauded by none other than Jodie Foster, her director from The Beaver and one of the few actresses to attain Lawrence’s critical and popular success — and more importantly, know how to translate it into real influence.

“Sure, this girl can act. But, man, this girl can also just be,” Foster wrote, describing seeing early cuts of Lawrence’s Oscar-nominated performance in Winter’s Bone. “All of those painful secrets in her face, the feeling that there’s some terrible past that’s left impossibly angled bone and weariness in its wake. She’s worn from the pain of living — something none of her characters would ever have the energy to articulate. It’s just part of her, like skin and muscle. The good news is that Jen, her good-humored, ballsy, free-spirited alter ego with the husky voice and a propensity for junk food … Jen, the spritely tomboy from Kentucky — that Jen’s got it together. A hoot. A gem. A gem with a killer stare.”
