Though she’s agreed to the label of “feminist” before, Beyoncé–like many female celebrities–hasn’t always been eager to wear that title. “That word can be very extreme,” she told British Vogue last year. “But I guess I am a modern-day feminist. I do believe in equality. Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are? Why do you have to label yourself anything?”
No matter what she calls herself, Beyoncé is standing up again for gender equality in her essay that appeared on the Shriver Report yesterday.
Beyoncé blew Instagram’s new product announcement out of the water in the middle of the night when she used the platform to announce a surprise new album that not a damn soul expected.
So Jay-Z and Beyoncé have embarked upon a 22-day challenge to go completely vegan as part of a “spiritual and physical cleanse” and/or to support their friend’s energy bar business. As a longtime herbivore myself, I couldn’t help but respond to this news in the deepest, most animalistic part of my brain, the part I’ve trained not to care about steak but which will never stop caring about what Queen Bey says and does. Yay, celebrities!

She’s A Survivor
How is it possible that the Boom Boom Room is still the Boom Boom Room? New York spots aren’t supposed to survive the winter after Fashion Week. But somehow the Top of the Standard, the golden canopy in Gotham’s skies, has lasted a half-decade.
“What makes it enduring?” Andre Balazs asked us during the rollicking five-year anniversary party he threw for his joint Thursday night. The proprietor of the fine cocktail spot and the hotel that houses it was standing steps away from the Boom Boom Room’s sprawling classic bar, its centerpiece bursting as always with gold-lit tubes like a giant warped church organ. “I think it’s the people, it’s like a child growing up. You can have all the great things, the great view and everything else, but the key to anything is attentiveness.”
A celebrity sighting in New York is something most people like to brag about. Dorris Hone, a 47-year-old single mom and Manhattan resident, had a more traumatic story to tell Thursday night after her run-in with Beyoncé, according to the Post.
Ms. Hone, who suffers from vertigo, said she was riding the Wonder Read More
Met Costume Gala
They ain’t ready for this jelly.
Beyonce’s bootylicious new H&M ads have been turning heads all over the city (like, seriously—is that body post-Blue Ivy?! Oh cruel, cruel world.) But while we’ll take any chance we can get to see the Queen Bee’s bod, in the Lower East Side, residents have decided to add a Read More

Last night’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Benefit will probably be–in the long run–lost to the annals of time, indistinguishable from last years, or the years before, or any year since Anna Wintour took over, actually. But for us who were there on the sidelines, waving frantically at a very pregnant Kim Kardashian and an actively dismissive Kanye West, screaming for just a moment of Lena Dunham or Kate Beckinsale time while pressed up against the barriers of the press pen like poor animals on the way to the slaughterhouse, listening to the woman next to us ask every female celebrity the same questions–”Did you eat anything today? What did you eat? How long did it take you to get into the dress?”–the irony of the night’s theme was not lost on us.
