Hold Onto Your Baby Bumps While We Recall Beyonc ‘s Epic “Love on Top” Performance

Beyonc is one of the greatest performers of our generation, and this is a fact. She brings an incredible, unwavering intensity to her sets, both short and long. Her performance of 4 highlight “Love on Top” at the 2011 VMAs was no exception.

She breezed through the song, hitting every note perfectly. She worked the stage, holding every person in the audience – and every person watching on TV – captive. It was a joyous performance, full of life and energy. And when I say it was “full of life,” I mean that in a very literal way.

Until Queen Bey hit the VMA red carpet earlier that night, no one knew she was pregnant. And even by the time she took the stage, word wasn’t completely out to the masses. So you can imagine (or remember) what happened when, upon finishing the song, Bey silently announced, with the unbuttoning of her jacket and a fierce look in her eyes, that she was expecting her first child.

This was probably the most talked-about moment of the night, and to consider how big a feat that is, please remember that Lady Gaga spent the entire evening in character as her male alter ego, Jo Calderone. Greatest ending to a performance ever? That’s up to you to decide. But if you’re still unsure, just remember how you felt when the camera cut to proud papa Jay-Z and an ecstatic Kanye West. You, like everyone else, felt a wave of happiness rush over you – don’t even try to deny it. Those who weren’t already on their feet rose instantly. #BowDown

Don’t forget to vote for your favorite iconic VMA performance above. Return each day this week to vote again – and for a new feature on the other performances.

Realty Byte: Ryan Serhant Takes A Tour Inside Christina Aguilera’s $10M Beverly Hills Mansion

28 Jun

What do a Grammy-winning diva and a tiger-blooded warlock have in common? A swanky zip code.

Christina Aguilera just splashed out some serious dough for a home in the 90210 nabe right next to non-other than “winner” Charlie Sheen himself. But don’t worry, this isn’t (another) celebrity cry for help, it just so happens that Xtina’s new $10.75M Beverly Hills mansion (she used her power of persuasion and negotiation to knock off $750k) is near some big names like Sheen, Paris Hilton, and guitar legend Slash.

The exclusive gated community known as Mulholland Estates is a popular spot for some pricey pads, with its state-of-the-art security systems and ultra-secluded privacy. And the home itself is just as glam as one would expect from the over-the-top songstress. Coming in at over 11,000 square-feet, the massive Mediterranean digs come with 6 bedrooms and 9 baths and sit on a jaw-dropping 36,414-square feet of land (that leaves over 25,000 square-feet alone for outside entertaining).

Designed by Hablinski Manion, the grander-than-life abode with exposed beam ceilings, formal living and dining room, wood paneled library, 2 bars, screening room (so Paris can come over to watch some of her memorable music videos), gourmet kitchen, and enclosed loggia (basically a really fancy walkway). Upstairs is just as posh with a master suite and fireplace, office, large terrace (with yet another fireplace), and spa.

Outside, the newly-svelte platinum blonde can take a dip with her beau Matt Rutler in the saltwater pool and kick up her Louboutins in the bath house and gazebo.

Aside from all of these awesome too-good-to-be-true amenities, the manse is pretty much foolproof when it comes to paps and party crashers trying to live it up in style with her infamous neighbors.

Where can we get an invite to the block party?

Let Ryan take you on a tour of Christina’s new digs in the Realty Byte video above.

One Direction Concerts Seem Like… Not a Thing I Want to Attend, Ever

25 Mar

One Direction In Concert

What the hell goes on at One Direction concerts? I’m curious (But not curious enough to actually, ya know, attend one), because between the pantsing and the handshaking (nothing screams excitement like a good, ol’ fashioned businessman’s handshake!), it’s like, what? Why? Is this a concert or an amateur improv comedy night? Perhaps it has something to do with the whole, like, “We’re just five lads!” band mythology? And at least we got some good captions out of it.

“Thanks for last night, it was good.” – Catherine

“I will pull your pants down like I did at a burger joint” – John

“I’ll take the high notes, and you take the low notes? Deal?” – Murny

“I’ll never let go, Lou!” – Marcy

“We’ve officially just formed the first-ever inter-band alliance, protecting us from the dangers of pantsing and other pranks.” – Cranston

The Power of Beysus Christ Compels You!

14 Mar

I saw Beyonc perform live in August, and it was mind-blowing – don’t get me wrong – but I’m feeling a bit miffed that I was not invited backstage to lay hands upon her holy form. I really could have used the excuse to never wash my hands again. Plus, that’s a Facebook profile pic you can’t beat! So many “likes” that never will be… Well, that’s fine, Queen Bey. Maybe next time. And until we cross paths again, we have today’s winning captions to bring truth and goodness into our lives.

“The power of Christ compels you!” – Rebecca

“OUT you sasha fierce spirit” – Stella

“She’s gonna need more kids than that to hold up her over inflated ego.” – Mark

“i swear if you lay your hand anywhere near my business, you’ll be saying a whole new prayer!!” – Katie

You’ve Won the Battle, Overly-Concerned Parents: Rihanna Now Comes With a Warning Label

1 Mar

Rihanna leaves her hotel to film a talk show

She can’t sing, she can’t dance, but who cares, ‘cuz she walks like Rihanna! Oh, wait, that is Rihanna. Oops. I take back that thing I said about not being able to sing and dance. Although, now that it’s out there: discuss! Can Rihanna sing? Can she dance? Perhaps, perhaps, but the real question is would she? The world may never know the answers to these questions, and so it must settle for today’s winning captions:

“Miley called, she wants her shirt back!” – April

“No caption necessary. Her shirt says it all!!!” – Amber

“Those pants are screaming yeast infection!!! Lol” – Angelique

“Guy in black like “come on that sweater tho'” – Farah
