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. But the good thing about Bey is that she likes to share her wealth of knowledge with her fans through her music. 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). Check out her best lyrical lessons below: READ FULL STORY

I would start this post with “Backstreet’s back, alright!” but here’s the thing: They never left (hence the album titled Never Gone). The boys have been a part of our lives for the past 20 years, and now, after a week of debating the many factors that make up a good boy band — the look, the music videos, the dance moves, the vocal ability, and the live performance — it’s official: You all have named the Backstreet Boys as the greatest boy band of all-time.
The Boys started strong, beating out Boyz II Men, New Kids on the Block, New Edition, NSYNC and One Direction for Best Group Appearance (with 42% of the vote) on the first day of Boy Band Battles. On Day 2, they dominated Best Music Videos with 46% of the vote. They crushed the Best Dancers category with 65% of the vote, and continued their domination with Best Vocal Moments (50%) and Best Live Performances (39%).
So now, let us celebrate by discussing our favorite things about AJ, Brian, Kevin, Nick, and Howie: READ FULL STORY
David Hasselhoff has been many things: A lifeguard, a dude with a really cool talking car, a music star (in Germany), a cheeseburger-lover, and even a highly desired cardboard cutout. But what is it about this man that makes him so popular? Well, we found one video that sums just about everything up.
You see, back when music videos weren’t as fancy as they are today, people were forced to get a little creative. For some, that meant intricate dance routines and outrageous outfits. For Hasselhoff, it meant the chance to fly and clone himself. We have no idea what his inspiration was for his “Hooked On A Feeling” video, and we don’t care. We’re just so happy it happened.

The Material Girl isn’t going to be short on materials anytime soon.
Madonna has been named the highest paid celebrity of 2013 by Forbes, which reports that the pop star brought in $125 million between June 2012 and June 2013. Not even an album flop can keep this woman down.
Behind Madonna is the king of movies, Steven Spielberg, with $100 million, the king of reality singing competitions, Simon Cowell, with $95 million, and the queen who gave us the red room of pain, E.L. James, also with $95 million. Rounding out the top five is Howard Stern — the king of awkwardness? — with the ever-popular intake of $95 million.
The first athlete joins the list at number 12, with Tiger Woods bringing in $78 million. And believe it or not, Oprah Winfrey sits at number 13 with $77 million. Luckily, that’s still enough money to give away a handful of cars if she feels the need.
News of Glee actor Cory Monteith’s unexpected and tragic death rocked Hollywood late Saturday night, with many of the 31-year-old actor’s co-stars and fellow television actors conveying their sadness on Twitter.
Monteith, best known for playing Finn Hudson on Fox’s Glee, was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room Saturday afternoon.

We may never find out if Big Foot exists, who Carly Simon wrote “You’re So Vain” about, or whether Leonardo DiCaprio is dreaming at the end of Inception. But there is one pop culture mystery which might be cleared up in the near future. For decades, it has been rumored that Atari buried millions of copies of its E.T. videogame at a landfill site in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Now, the Alamogordo city council has given the Los Angeles-based Fuel Entertainment permission to search the site for a film project and find out if one of the videogame industry’s most enduring myths is fact or fiction. “The dumping of the E.T. cartridges has always been one of the biggest urban legends in videogame history,” says Mike Burns, cofounder and CEO of Fuel Entertainment’s parent company, Fuel Industries. “We wanted to find out what’s really in there and put an end to the rumors.”
Cheyenne Jackson must have a busy haberdasher, because the man has been known to wear a lot of different hats: scene-stealing TV actor (30 Rock, Behind the Candelabra), theater thespian (Xanadu, Finian’s Rainbow), and — especially these days — musician.
Jackson’s set to release his debut solo album I’m Blue, Skies tomorrow, and you can watch the video for his single “She Pretty, She Lies,”co-penned by Sia, the singer (“Breathe Me”) and songwriter (Rihanna’s “Diamonds,” Christina Aguilera’s “You Lost Me”) exclusively here.
The clip, helmed by Peter Tokay, features a fully clothed CJ getting all wet, getting all drunk, and getting all destructive — and doing it all backwards, no less!

Previewing this week's 'Entertainment Weirdly' show on Sirius XM: Miley, 'Maniac,' and a one-ton musical monkey
What do Miley Cyrus’ latest video, Elijah Wood’s just-out slasher flick Maniac, and Sarah McLachlan’s decision to write the songs for a stage musical of King Kong have in common? That’s right, they all feature in my forthcoming YA novel Harry Everdeen and the Terrifying Acid Trip (soon to be a major motion picture and/or massive law suit). But they are also all subjects which will be discussed in this week’s edition of Entertainment Weirdly, which is broadcast on Entertainment Weekly Radio, Sirius XM 105, at 1pm ET this afternoon.
Join myself, Darren Franich, and Keith Staskiewicz as we ruminate on the latest strange pop culture shenanigans, recommend a range of oddball malarkey, and mark the release of World War Z by playing an all-zombie movie version of our Christmas present must-have in-the-making game Death Jam.
mind can even digest and understand” — but her inflated sense of self-regard has nothing on her pal Kanye West, who compares himself variously to Michael Jordan, Steve Jobs, Rick Owens, Walt Disney Henry Ford, and Anna Wintour in a new 4,600-word interview with the New York Times. At one point, West even says that he and he alone is the nucleus of all society.
This shouldn’t exactly come as a shock; after all, the guy did name his new album Yeezus. And perhaps more importantly, West is hyper-aware of the vital role arrogance plays in his “brand”: “The idea of Kanye and vanity are like, synonymous,” he tells the Times during a brief moment of self-awareness.
That being said, the interview really is a breathtaking study in the art of narcissism — regardless of whether it’s utterly serious or at least partially manufactured. Prepare yourself for the breakfast of champions, e.g. reading the piece’s seven most egomaniacal quotes — as well as one that may just endear the guy to you after all.
On hard work, maturity, and never, ever holding a grudge:
“I was on the junior [basketball] team when I was a freshman, that’s how good I was. But I wasn’t on my eighth-grade team, because some coach — some Grammy, some reviewer, some fashion person, some blah blah blah — they’re all the same as that coach[...]I’m letting it out on everybody who doesn’t want to give me my credit.”
