More Beyonce LIES - nothing new here folks...

Vienna - A prestigious museum and the public in Vienna were duped Tuesday by a double of US pop singer Beyonce, who was hired as a prank by a local radio station. While the real star was taking a walk in the historic city centre ahead of a concert in Vienna, the radio station also sent the double shopping and arranged an exclusive tour of the Albertina art museum, the broadcaster confirmed.

Austrian media had speculated at first that Beyonce herself had hired the lookalike who was followed around by deceived fans.

A woman claiming to be the Beyonce's manager called the museum, asking for a tour within half an hour.

In the past, movie stars Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and Nicolas Cage had visited the Albertina for hastily arranged special visit.

"Her face was extremely similar, but her body was totally different," said Verena Dahlitz, the museum's spokeswoman, after her initial suspicion had been confirmed.

A marketing manager at Kronehit radio explained that the station had hired a German singer and model for the prank.

"We'll call the Albertina to say we meant no harm," manager Andrea Hilber said. "It was a great museum tour."

So let me get this straight...

The b1tch in the pic above
(yes I called her a b1tch! wtf she pretending she Beyonce for KNOWING the Austrian people will feel "slighted" & TALK $H1T. Which I ain't even postingdry) looks like Beyonce huh? So Bey built like a 12 year old lil boy huh?

Idris Discusses Beyonce during UK interview

Starts around 1.15. He talks about:
- Says she brought it in this film. And that Beyonce had to step into her personal life to portray what her and Idris' character Derek had in the film, which was great chemistry.

- The interviewer brought up the issue about Jay supposedly feeling threatened by Sean Paul during the whole Baby Boy era and asked did Idris have an awkaward moment with Jay.
- Idris said the whole Jay feeling threatened thing was a rumour that's been around for a long time and makes him sound insecure when he's really a gentlemen. Jay came to the set once when Idris wasn't there.
- Idirs and Jay saw each other at the premiere last week and it was all good. Hugs and pounds. He says Beyonce and Jay are very happy.
- On the first day they met on the set he and Beyonce had to kiss within 20mins of meeting each other.
- They got along really well, says she's down-to-earth.
- She sent him an e-mail today because they congratulated each other on the film and she also said it was typical of the press making up stuff and it seeming it came from them. (Dreamgirls anyone? kink )
- Talks about the scene in his office where Ali's character first meets Sharon and he forgot his lines because he was with two beautiful ladies.
- Beyonce was really dedicated, open and they had a lot of conversations and improvisation.
- Idris played one of his rap songs to one of Beyonce's assistants (I'm assuming Angie because he said she was also a songwriter) and she went back and told Beyonce. He said he was so embarrassed. *retold by bwb member*

If anyone is from the UK & can rip this for download :-D we'd be bestest friends :-)

Superstar's Latest Film, "Obsessed," Opens At #1, Raking In An Estimated $28.5M In Receipts

Second Madison Square Garden Show Added to "I AM..." Concert Tour Itinerary In Response To Overwhelming Demand

NEW YORK, April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- International superstar Beyonce, a Golden Globe nominee and multiple Grammy Award winner, is dominating both the music and film industries this week.

"Obsessed," Beyonce's latest film (and first to feature the artist in a non-singing role), is the #1 film at America's box offices, bringing in an estimated $28.5 million for its opening weekend. A taut stalker-thriller, "Obsessed" holds the record as the all-time highest grossing film for the last weekend in April (surpassing 2004's "Mean Girls").

"Obsessed" is Beyonce's third feature film to open at #1 (following 2002's "Austin Powers in Goldmember" and 2006's "The Pink Panther"). "Obsessed" is Executive Produced by Mathew Knowles, Founder/CEO of Music World Entertainment and Beyonce Knowles. The film is being released by Sony Pictures Screen Gems division.

Beyonce launched the European portion of her "I AM..." world tour on Sunday night with an electrifying sold-out performance in Zagreb, Croatia. More than 17,500 ecstatic fans -- the largest single audience for an international artist in Croatian concert history -- danced, sang-along and partied with the iconic superstar during an unforgettable two-hour show at Zagreb's Arena.

"Halo," the current single from "I AM....SASHA FIERCE," Beyonce's latest chart-topping album, is a bonafide international smash. "Halo" has been the #1 on the UK airplay charts for five weeks running and is the #1 single in Norway. The single is #4 this week on Europe's airplay charts and #6 on the singles chart. "Halo" is already Top 10 or better in Ireland (#3 airplay, #4 singles), Germany (#6 singles), Austria (#5 singles), Sweden (#10 singles, #1 CHR), and Switzerland (#9 airplay, #5 singles).

The Northern American leg of the "I AM..." world tour will begin in New York City on June 21. General public tickets for Beyonce's "I AM..." world tour went on sale Friday, the same day as the opening of "Obsessed." Overwhelming demand for premium packages and general tickets for the shows have made the "I AM..." tour one of the fastest selling concert events of the year. A second Madison Square Garden concert date has been added in New York City on June 22. Beyonce will cap off the tour with a four-night residency at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas July 30-August 2 (following is the tour itinerary).

VIP Premium Packages(TM) and general tickets are now on sale at As a special offering, in order to make the concerts affordable to all her fans, there will be a select number of seats available at each venue for $20 (plus applicable service charges). Information on tickets for the four-night residency at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas is available at

The 2009 "I AM..." World Tour is offering fans an unprecedented concert experience. VIP Premium Packages include select seating options, backstage access to meet and take photos with Beyonce, special front row tickets, pre-show parties, Limited Edition Dereon bags and collectables, fan club memberships and an up-close and personal dance experience in the "Diva-Zone" at the stage. Expanding beyond the normal concert setting, the "I AM..." performances are featuring two stages at the venue.

The most heavily-anticipated concert event of 2009, Beyonce's "I AM..." world tour occasions the artist's first full-length concerts since 2007's sold-out "The Beyonce Experience" shows. Beyonce's current tour premieres live performances of songs from "I AM...SASHA FIERCE," her latest international #1 chart-topping album.

Thierry Mugler, world-renowned designer, is working as creative advisor and costume designer on Beyonce's "I AM..." world tour. He has designed 71 new costumes for the event, highlighted by his bold signature look.

The "I AM..." world tour production showcases the music and film superstar like you've never seen her before. Beyonce's extraordinary all-female band will join her again to perform musical hits, classics, and surprises in a newly-created high-tech state-of-the-art concert environment. Winners of Beyonce's "Single Ladies" Video Dance contest will see themselves on-screen during one of the centerpiece sections of the "I AM..." extravaganza.

Beyonce is co-sponsoring food drives along her tour itinerary as part of the Show Your Helping Hand(TM) initiative, a national hunger relief campaign created by General Mills' Hamburger Helper(R), in partnership with Beyonce and her Survivor Foundation. The campaign goal is to help Feeding America(TM) deliver more than 3.5 million meals to local food banks. Consumers can get involved in the effort by submitting codes on specially marked boxes of Hamburger Helper(R), by donating non-perishable food items at Beyonce's concerts in select cities across the U.S., or by donating money at Beginning April 25, visit for more information.

Box Office: Obsessed Is The Biggest Last-Weekend-of-April Opener Ever

Posted on Friday, April 24th, 2009 at 11:16 pm by: Steve Mason


Recording superstar Beyonce Knowles is building a bankable resume for herself as an actress with Sony Screen Gems’ Obsessed as the latest title burnishing her resume. Co-starring the excellent Idris Elba (The Wire), this low budget, PG-13 genre pic has scored a far-above-expectations $11M on Friday, and it will likely reach $27.5M for the weekend. That is the best opening yet for the former Destiny’s Child lead vocalist as an above-the-title star, topping 2003’s The Fighting Temptations and Cadillac Records from late 2008.

SATURDAY PM: These kinds of movies are so demeaning to women when the wife and a deranged "other woman" catfight over a man. But there's no denying that female filmgoers love this winning formula. (Remember the big box office of its inspiration, Fatal Attraction?)

So it was no surprise to Hollywood that Screen Gems/Sony's Obsessed starring Beyoncé did so well FRIDAY and SATURDAY, opening No. 1 to $11.2 million BOTH DAYS in North American grosses from 2,515 theaters for what was an overperforming $26M weekend. Amazing, since the studio claims it cost only $20M and was expecting only $18M. This was the 2nd biggest Screen Gems opening ever. The pic did best with female audiences under 25, followed by females over 25.

By contrast, Rogue/Universal's pummel pic Fighting with star of tomorrow Channing Tatum (of the upcoming G.I. Joe) appealed to males under 25 and debuted in 2nd place to $4.5 million Friday from 2,310 venues for a projected $11M weekend. That's in line with expectations for this formulaic he-man genre.

No. 3 went to the Zac Efron starrer 17 Again from New Line/Warner Bros with $3.9 million (down 60% from its opening last Friday) from 3,255 dates but could jump into 2nd place if its weekend tally reaches $12M for a new cume of $30M.

For months, there's been curiosity about how the DreamWorks/Paramount inspirational pic The Soloist would fare in theaters. This Robert Downey Jr/Jamie Foxx starrer was supposed to be released for Academy Award consideration in 2008, but Paramount delayed its debut in order to keep the spotlight and marketing on its two Oscar hopefuls The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button and Revolutionary Road. (Needless to say, DreamWorks was not amused...) The much-buzzed pic is based on the real life relationship between a Los Angeles Times columnist and a genius violinist who's also homeless. But The Soloist opened in 4th place Friday with $3.2 million from 2,024 runs for what should be an underperforming $9M. It proved a challenge to convince people the film wasn't a downer. The audience was led by females over 25 followed by males over 25 with some interest from, surprisingly, males under 25.

Disney's environmental documentary Earth (2009) opened, appropriately enough, on Wednesday which was Earth Day. It earned $2.9 million Friday from 1,804 plays for 5th place and a predicted $9.5M weekend. It's the first documentary from the Disneynature imprint and follows three animal families with impressive photography.

It's surprising how quickly Universal's journalism thriller State Of Play starring Russell Crowe and based on the BBC miniseries faded in a week after a disappointing opener because the studio really thought this pic would have legs. In the 6th spot, it made only $2 million (-55%) Friday from 2,807 theaters for what should be just a $6.5M weekend and new cume of a mere $24.7M.


Audiences ‘Obsessed’ With Beyoncé

Girl power dominated again this year on the last weekend in April, typically a low point in box office numbers just before the summer season. Obsessed, starring pop singer Beyoncé Knowles, out performed expectations for a surprise $28.5 million. In 2008, the late April opener Baby Mama, starring best girl friends Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, won that weekend.

Perhaps most shocking is the relationship drama with catfighting characters didn’t attract entirely female audiences. Only 58% of the opening audience were women, which is unusually high for most movies, but seems low for the type of low-budget ($20 million) PG-13 love battle. Nearly half were under the age of 25, according to Nikki Finke’s exit polling analysis.

It also establishes Beyoncé as more than just a supporting actress after appearing in an Austin Powers sequel and a series of musical acting roles like Dreamgirls, where she was upstaged by former American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson. She certainly has a place at Screen Gems, who is celebrating their second largest opening ever.

Exit polling showed that the extraordinary opening was driven by female moviegoers. 58% of the audience was female and 42% male. Nearly half (49%) was under the age of 25 and 51% was over 25.

Rihanna & Her Borrowed Items

Rihanna Wants Cops to Return $1 Million in Jewelry. Four jewelers who lent Rihanna approximately $1 million worth of accessories the night of her alleged beating by Chris Brown want their bling back. Since late March, Rihanna, 21, has been trying to recover the borrowed jewelry from the LAPD, who took the items into evidence in their investigation.

“Since there appears to be no evidentiary value to the continued holding of this jewelry … we respectfully [ask] the court to order the return of this property to [Rihanna] without further delay,” her lawyer Donald Etra wrote in a court request filed earlier this week. The items were described as two yellow metal hoop earrings with white stones; one yellow metal ring with white stones and green stones; and two yellow metal rings with white stones. “If the DA doesn’t need the items, and the LAPD doesn’t need the items, there’s no reason why they shouldn’t be returned,” Etra tells PEOPLE. A source adds that Rihanna also borrowed a Gucci dress for the Feb. 7 Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Party she attended, which also has not been returned.

Etra states in the documents that the owners of the jewelry were going to hold Rihanna liable if the accessories weren’t returned, with the total cost and damages related to their late return as more than $1.4 million

Beyonce @ Obsessed Movie Premiere in NY

Watch video HERE


OBSESSED star IDRIS ELBA struggled with some scenes in the new romantic thriller - because he couldn't take his eyes off co-stars BEYONCE KNOWLES and ALI LARTER.

The British actor plays Beyonce's husband in the movie and Larter his smitten, psychotic secretary - and Elba admits he was so taken by the beauty of his co-stars and their nasty fight scenes, he'd forget cues and lines.
He explains, "I’m watching Beyonce and Ali go at it, being catty to each other, (and then someone would say) 'Idris, it’s your line.' 'Oh, my God, yeah, sorry. Now where am I?'"
He admits working with the two beauties was like being given the keys to two luxury sportscars for the day: "They said, 'By the way, we’re thinking of going to Ali Larter and Beyonce.' It was like being given the keys to a Ferrari and a Lamborghini and saying, 'You can have these for all of 24 hours. All yours. But you have to give them back.'
"Those women are beautiful, and also very nice people."
