Beyoncé's "Run The World (Girls)" Video

Been a while I last heard the word, “Girl Power!” For anyone still laboring under the illusion that Beyoncé does not mean business, well, just watch this video. Described by B herself as "futuristic," "electronic" and "African," the 29-year-old fused all that and more into a still remarkably cohesive music video for "Run the World (Girls)," the first single from her new album 4, due out June 28. Sure, anyone with two X chromosomes may be ready to grab some armor, suit up and join the Beyonce army after watching this, though the XY folk aren’t left out, either: there are lions! Chains! Drooling hyenas! Cars on fire! Riot police! A close up of the old one-fingered salute! And did we mention, Beyoncé getting her groove on in a hot, sandy desert  in less than modesty-protecting outfits? Bottom line: Beyoncé may have just wangled her way into song of summer territory. And just think, there’s not an egg-hatching in sight. But the fun doesn’t end there—Beyoncé’s also released her new album cover art. Beyonce's Cover art

The Mansion Where Schwarzenegger Started His Affair

I bet everyone’s following the cases of Schwarzenegger’s affair – who, what, where and how.Guess Whose Celebrity Estate We know what kind of an effect knocking up the housekeeper has on a marriage, but will it have any impact when it comes to selling the very home that may have been the place where the impregnating occurred? The Pacific Palisades mansion that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver called home from 1986 to 2003 is currently on the market for $23.5 million. Of course, Mildred Patricia Baena was hired to work there in 1991, only to give birth to Arnold’s out-of-wedlock son six years later. So, will potential buyers be able to look past such an indiscretion? Guess Whose Celebrity Estate Well, it is pretty impressive. (The house, that is. Not the infidelity.) Built in 1982, the Mediterranean-style home sits on 2.5 acres of land and has seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The property also features a tennis court, pool and spa, a duck pond and a natural flowing stream. Private and secluded, there’s both an equestrian compound and a guest house as well. Not to mention, a little notoriety now at no extra cost. But this does look like a complete household, no? READ: Arnold Schwarzenegger and Housekeeper Mistress—Timeline of a Scandal

Lady Gaga’s Latest Single – “HAIR” and is Lady Gaga Pregnant?

You do know Mother Monster only writes songs that are weird right? Or else she wouldn’t be called Mother Monster for no reasons.

She is all over the news again the past 2 days. Just a week after “Born This Way” hit the stores, Lady Gaga released her new hit – Hair on iTunes 2 nights ago. Mother Monster said it is one of her favourite songs on the album. She claims this song goes on an “interesting” path because she placed saxophone on this really huge electronic record. Her songs nevertheless does not always hit me anyways, she’s starting to really be more and more Monstrous and I actually have to say I love Justin Bieber a little bit more these days. On the other news, Mother Monster Gaga acts as a mother womb instead of the fetus in her performance at the Grammy’s this year. She indeed was on of the headlines for BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend. And the usual sadistic Lady Gaga, she was carried by her dancers in a coffin. She never fails to surprise people on the things she does on her shows. I don’t know if I should laugh or cry. We’ve got meat dresses, eggs and fetus, now baby and what’s more? She’s really dying for the attention..

Britney Spears is the latest celebrity that thinks that the Canadian singer is “adorable”. The pop princess could relate to the teenage boy wonder, seeing how they had similar heads start in the showbiz. “I just saw his movie (Justin Bieber: Never Say Never), and I really didn’t realize how big he was. He’s enormous; he’s just Mr. Man. A lot of the movie is really similar to what I did when I was starting out. I did a promo tour for a year, going into radio stations and all that. It was so cool to see our similarities," she said. Source: PopEater Published May 17 2011

This is NEWS. This is ENTERTAINMENT. But for Orlando Bloom, as many girls claimed he is hot; he just pee-ed in the bottle. Wife, Miranda Kerr has revealed that she refused to let Orlando Bloom leave her side when she was in labour. The Victoria’s Secret model, who gave birth to the couple’s son, Flynn in January, said that her actor husband even had to "pee in a bottle" because she didn’t want to face childbirth without him. She told Conan O’Brien on his chatshow: "I wouldn’t even let him leave during it. He had to pee in a bottle. He stayed there the whole time, he is a wonderful father and I am really blessed." She also told Fox 5 Morning News: "[Flynn is] the best thing that ever happened to me. He’s the light of my life, it’s just incredible. [Orlando is an] incredibly hands on father."

Johnny Depp is Related to the Queen

I thought this was pretty hot news for people who used to say Johnny Depp is hot. A genealogist has revealed that Johnny Depp is related to Queen Elizabeth II. According to the Sunday Mirror, the American actor, who plays Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, is the Queen’s cousin 20 times removed. "You have to go back more than 500 years to reach the point where his ancestors become royal," said Dr Nick Barratt, who carried out the research. Source:

So 500 years is the timeline? So, how about talking about me being related to you? If you’re talking about 500 years, we’re probably all related to one another.

Blood Test that Tells How Long You’ll Live. You Want To Know?

A US$700 (RM2,030) blood test that tells someone’s biological age will go on sale in Britain later this year, reports the Independent. The test will be able to offer the possibility of estimating how long the person has left to live by measuring telomeres on the tip of their chromosomes, the most important and accurate indicators of how rapidly someone is aging. However, critics worry that it can be misused by some companies that try to sell unproven anti-aging remedies. Insurance companies might also take interest in the result of the test to decide what kind of medical coverage they will offer. However, the test could provide insights into a range of age-related disorders, from cardiovascular disease to Alzheimer’s and cancer. The inventor of the test said that the fact that short telomeres can cause a shorter lifespan is already known. “What’s new about this test is that it is very precise. We can detect a very small differences in telomere length and it is a very simple and fast technique where many samples can be analyzed at the same time. Most importantly, we are able to determine the presence of dangerous telomeres — those that are very short,” said Maria Blasco of the Spanish National Cancer Research Center. Telomere research is also an exciting area in biomedical science and three scientists who received the Nobel Prize last year are pioneers in the field. “It will be useful for you to know your biological age and maybe to change your lifestyle habits if you find you have short telomeres,” said a former post-doctoral student of the Nobel Prize winner Carol Greider of Harvard Medical School.
