Beyoncé Gets Surprise Kiss Onstage

Her face said it all.

Beyoncé got a big surprise when her husband, Jay-Z, walked out on stage while she was performing in Philadelphia on Thursday night.

The singer was in the middle of introducing her dancers and band when he snuck up behind her, grabbing her around the waist and planting a kiss on her cheek. As the crowd went wild, he rushed off stage.

Beyoncé posted the pics of the sweet moment on her tumblr blog, and it’s clear by the expression on her face that it wasn’t a pre-planned appearance by her husband.

Jay-Z and the couple’s daughter, Blue Ivy, have been accompanying Beyoncé on some of the dates of her Mrs. Carter World Tour.

Clive Davis Comes Out As Bisexual In New Memoir

Clive Davis

Legendary record executive Clive Davis has ‘come out’ as bisexual in his new memoir.

The music mogul, who launched the careers of stars including Whitney Houston and Janis Joplin, opens up about his sexual orientation in his latest book The Soundtrack of My Life.

Davis, who has married and divorced twice, writes candidly about his first same-sex encounter with a man he met at the famous New York City club Studio 54 some 30 years ago.

He recalls, “On this night, after imbibing enough alcohol, I was open to responding to his sexual overtures… Was I nervous? Absolutely. Did the heavens open up? No. But it was satisfying.”

The 80-year-old music veteran also reveals he was in a “monogamous relationship” with an unnamed male doctor from 1990 to 2004, and he has been dating another man for the past several years.

He writes, “Bisexuality is misunderstood; the adage is that you’re either straight or gay or lying, but that’s not my experience. To call me anything other than bisexual would be inaccurate.”

Davis has also discussed his bisexuality in an interview on talk show Katie, which is due to air on Tuesday – the same day his autobiography is released.

He tells host Katie Couric, “I’m still attracted to women… You don’t have to be only one thing or another (straight or gay). For me, it’s the person.”

Vin Diesel Covers Rihanna’s ‘Stay’ – and Wins the Internet for the Day

This video could break the Internet, and there aren’t even any cats in it.

On Feb. 14, Vin Diesel posted a video of his heartfelt cover of Rihanna’s song “Stay” to his Facebook page – and in a matter of hours, the video was shared more than 26,000 times, because who doesn’t want to watch the musclebound Fast & Furious star sing?

In the clip, a shadowed Diesel says, “Happy V day amore,” before launching into a karaoke-style rendition of the ballad as the video (where a nude Rihanna sings in the bathtub) is projected on the wall next to him.

The actor, clad in jeans and a jacket, shows off his vocal range, switching from a deep bass to a falsetto.

Diesel, who was named the Sexiest Man Alive on Facebook in 2010 ends the clip by repeating “Happy V day amore” three times and blowing a kiss, presumably to his 39 million Facebook fans.

David Bowie To Re-Release ‘Aladdin Sane’ To Mark 40th Anniversary

David Bowie

A re-mastered version of David Bowie’s classic album Aladdin Sane will be released to mark the record’s 40th anniversary.

The legend’s sixth album hit shelves in 1973 and was a follow-up to his major breakthrough The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.

The album’s sleeve artwork features the iconic image of Bowie in his Ziggy Stardust guise with a lightning bolt painted on his face.

The record, which includes tracks The Jean Genie and Drive-In Saturday, has been digitally overhauled and will be reissued on April 15th.

Bowie thrilled fans last month by releasing his first new music in 10 years. The single, Where Are We Now?, which topped the U.K. download charts hours after its release, will appear on his upcoming album The Next Day, due out in March.
