Beyonce's carnival demands

Feb 28 2013, 1:24am CST | by

Beyonce reportedly demanded $80,000 to attend a British summer carnival.

The 'Halo' singer was invited to the annual Maldon Carnival Association in Essex, South East England, and organizers were thrilled when she took up their offer, as other stars, such as Britney Spears, Rod Stewart and Queen Elizabeth, hadn't got back to them.

Her spokesman in New York emailed committee boss Rob Slight saying: "There is a possibility Beyonce will be available."

However, it later emerged the 'Crazy in Love' hitmaker was demanding a huge fee just to attend, something the carnival could not afford.

Her spokesman said: "It is apparent there is some miscommunication. Beyonce will require an appearance fee."

An annoyed Robsaid: "We had wanted this year to be the best yet."

But Beyonce will be in Essex over the summer as it was recently announced she will headline this year's Virgin Media V Festival.

The mother-of-one will make her only European festival appearance while Kings of Leon will also top the bill at the annual event, which takes place in both Hylands Park, Chelmsford, and Weston Park, Staffordshire across the weekend of August 17 and 18.

Tickets for this year's event go on sale at 9am on Friday March 1. Visit www.vfestival.com for more information.

Never one to keep her opinion to herself, Annie Lennox has weighed in on the modern feminism movement and it sounds like she’s not all that impressed.

Kelly Rowland Seems Pregnant

Oct 7 2014 1:29pm CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

Kelly Rowland is the chick from Destiny’s Child who isn’t Beyonce. No, not that one, the other one. She’s big in England now which is a testament to her not being big in the United States. She’s also seventy-fourth in succession to have her naked pregnant body shot for a women’s fashion magazine. I still kind of remember when Demi Moore had one of her future alcoholics in her belly and broke all the rules by having herself portrayed naked. That was relatively cool. Now it’s just ...
