Beyonce has been enjoying her 30th birthday with style and a few good friends.
The mommy-to-be arrived in Venice, Italy over the weekend to celebrate her big 3-0 with husband Jay-Z, 41. The two were spotted having dinner at a well-known hotspot in the city on Sunday, reports People.
According to The Daily Mail, Jay and Beyonce boarded a luxury yacht while overseas, and the couple's pal Gwyneth Paltrow joined in the fun. Herself a mom of two, Paltrow was in town to promote her film "Contagion" at the Venice Film Festival. The guest list didn't end there, however: Singer Erykah Badu was on deck as well.
The September issue of Elle features Hollywood goddess Gwyneth Paltrow revealing details of her private marriage, her celebrity pal Beyonce and her recent foray into music.
Fans know that the actress has a bosom buddy in the "Single Ladies" singer, and Paltrow, 38, shares a sweet moment with the mag, telling of when she got support from Bey for her Grammy performance.
“This story always makes me cry,” she starts. “It’s 10 in the morning and Beyoncé schleps it all the way down to the Staples Center to watch. I mean, she’s Beyoncé!”
Hide the canned cheese from Gwyneth Paltrow, or things could get ugly.
The 38-year-old actress/foodie turned up at the iTunes festival in London on Tuesday to talk cooking and good eats, and after avoiding questions from interviewer Jonathan Ross about husband Chris Martin, she explained that she doesn’t let her kids go anywhere near McDonald’s.
“I take them to Pizza Express because I think that’s much healthier,” she told Ross, according to the Daily Mirror. “Don’t tell them there are toys!”
Today's news you might've missed:
As promised, Gwyneth Paltrow popped up at the "Glee Live!" show at the summer tour's London stop on Wednesday. Lea Michele, who plays Rachel Berry on the show, tweeted earlier that the night's event was "going to be a special one" before she revealed that Paltrow was the surprise.
The 38-year-old had a breakout role on the Fox series as the substitute teacher Holly Holiday, and she joined the "Glee" crew at the O2 arena for another rendition of Cee Lo's "Forget You," as she previously did in New Jersey. According to the Daily Mail, Santana, as played by Naya Rivera, was in the middle of telling the "Glee" crew that she'd been named the sexiest glee club member when Paltrow strolled on stage and challenged her to a sing-off.
Paltrow, who recently joined Twitter, also had a few young ones in tow. "Just took four 7 year olds to glee live london. somebody pass me something vaguely hallucinogenic," she tweeted.
Hopefully they enjoyed her performance as much as this fan, who told the actress/singer on Twitter, "you were SO AMAZING tonight, thank you soooo much!! You have made my life!!!"
Perhaps the folks over at "Glee" heard our prayers for a few less "teachable moments" next season.
Six new writers have been added to the show, The Hollywood Reporter says. Allison Adler, Marti Noxon, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Michael Hitchcock, Matt Hodgson and Ross Maxwell have joined Ryan Murphy and team to craft story lines for Season 3.
The group of new writers brings quite a pedigree.
