Beyonce Photos: Hot Hollywood Female Celebrity Photo Gallery of the Day

HollywoodNews.com: Our selected celebrity to be included in our “Hot Hollywood Female Celebrity Photo Gallery of the Day” is Beyonce Knowles.

Beyonce Knowles is hotter than ever. Her new album, “4″, debuts at Number 1 this week with around 300,000 copies sold. Enjoy her gallery!
Beyoncé Giselle Knowles ( /biˈjɒnseɪ/ bee-yon-say; born September 4, 1981), often known simply as Beyoncé, is an American R&B recording artist, actress and fashion designer. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, she enrolled in various performing arts schools and was first exposed to singing and dancing competitions as a child. Knowles rose to fame in the late 1990s as the lead singer of the R&B girl group Destiny’s Child, one of the world’s best-selling girl groups of all time.
During the hiatus of Destiny’s Child, Knowles released her debut solo album Dangerously in Love in 2003, which spawned the number-one hits “Crazy in Love” and “Baby Boy” and became one of the most successful albums of that year, earning her a then record-tying five Grammy Awards. Following the group’s disbandment in 2005, Knowles released her second solo album, B’Day in 2006. It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and included the hits “Irreplaceable” and “Beautiful Liar”. Her third solo album I Am… Sasha Fierce was released in 2008, and included the anthemic “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)”. The album earned Knowles six Grammys at the 52nd Grammy Awards, breaking the record for most Grammy Awards won by a female artist in one night.

Beyonce’s New CD is Number 1

HollywoodNews.com: Beyonce‘s “4″ album debuts at Number 1 this week with around 300,000 copies sold. It’s a good but not great debut for “4″ considering its predecessor sold 480,000 copies a year and a half ago.
The lower number is surely an indication of how the record biz has dwindled over the same period of time. It’s also about Beyonce not having a great single from this album. On the last one, “I Am…Sasha Fierce,” she had a breakout hit with “Single Ladies.” Even the video was parodied. “4″ doesn’t have that single so far, although does have a few misses.
I have to think that Beyonce’s forceful appearance on “Good Morning America” last Friday helped her a lot. She sang live, looked like a million bucks, and really went for it. All current performers should take notes. When Beyonce is on, she is worth her weight in gold bullion. It’s instructive to note that at same time Beyonce was roaring across the “GMA” set in Central Park, rapper Pitbull was featured on the “Today” show. He wasn’t very good, and his sales actuall went down. He’s dropped from number 7 to 15.
This was a rare “Today” misstep. This Friday, country singer Blake Shelton comes to “Today,” which should be a hit. The following Friday is Chris Brown–yikes, what are they thinking? Meanwhile, Adele gets kicked to Number 2 this week; she’s still rolling deep in green. Lady Gaga drifts out of the top 10 and into oblivion.

Beyonce packs more girl power to her punch

By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: The debut of the video for Beyonce’s new single, “Run the World (Girls)” may mark the ultimate manifestation the R&B star’s girl power agenda. With song lyrics that warn “Boy don’t even try to take us…” and “Who runs the world? Girls!” while featuring an army of women causing armed men to cower in fear, the superstar’s message is a natural culmination in a series of mega-hits dating as far back as “Destiny’s Child”.
2008’s “I am…Sasha Fierce” also had its fair share of lyrics aimed at (shall we say, overconfident?) men. “Irreplaceable” cautions a man not to underestimate his partner’s ability to find somebody else to treat her right. “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” reproaches a man for being jealous of his ex’s new love interest—particularly when he himself failed to “put a ring on it”.
Even as a member of “Destiny’s Child”, hit singles included a theme of women claiming their power. Lyrics to songs like “Independent Women Part I” (which featured on the soundtrack of “Charlie’s Angels”), “Jumpin’ Jumpin’”, and “Survivor” prove as much.
Beyonce’s new album, 4, will release on June 28th.

Beyonce releases music video for “Why Don’t You Love Me”

Beyonce’s 2009 “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” video won the BET Awards Video of the Year. Since then she has collaborated with Lady Gaga on the single “Telephone,” which produced a very controversial video that took the video sites by storm. Now she is back with a new video for her latest song “Why Don’t You Love Me.” The video features Beyonce looking amazing as usual in a series of retro shots.
Watch the new video below:

Sony Pulls Beyonce’s Music Videos from her own YouTube

Sony Music has taken the ax to Beyonce’s YouTube video account and has pulled the music videos from her account. Her own record label has removed hits such as “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” to be followed by a screen that says “This video contains content from Sony Music Entertainment, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.” I’m not quite sure Sony thinks that Beyonce is stealing her own music and videos from someone else. The most ironic part is that right after the error message, a banner presumably from the record label reads “Congratulations for winning six Grammy Awards.”
However, according to multiple sites, Motherboard.tv, BoingBoing.net, and TheWrap.com, Sony is still allowing fans to watch the some of the blocked videos on VEVO’s YouTube page, which is co-owned by Sony and Universal Music. Her “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” music video is nowhere to be seen and only a live version of “Sweet Dreams” is available for viewing.
The action against Beyonce has come in the same week that the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement leaked onto the web. The secret negotiating agreement was between countries such as U.S., Japan, Canada, Australia, South Korea, and the European Union and if put into force, allows law enforcement to close down sites and email accounts that the entertainment industry deems associated with sharing illegally obtained copyright material. But still, why they would consider Beyonce sharing illegally copyrighted material that stars herself and was made for her music, is strange.
This also comes after her and Lady Gaga made pop video history when their music video for “Telephone” debuted and hit number one on the Billboard Pop charts earlier this month, making them tied with Mariah Carey for six number one hits.
