Beyonce featured on ‘Self’ magazine

Beyonce is on the cover of the September issue of Self magazine.  In the issue, she discusses how helping others motivates her in her life.
Sisterhood means everything to me,” Beyonce said.  “All the charities I’m involved with are special, but I find any organization that focuses on women and children really motivating. Gems and the young ladies the nonprofit helps are very close to my heart. And what I took away from the clients at Phoenix House changed my life. These were real people who touched me so much that I had to go beyond making a donation. They’re gaining skills at the Cosmetology Center, which will help them earn a living and find their way out of substance abuse—it’s a testament to the possibility of second chances.”

Video: Beyonce and Lady Gaga ‘Telephone’

Well it is finally here!  The anticipated video for Lady GaGa and Beyonce’s “Telephone.” Tyrese is also featured in the video.  Lady Gaga explains the concept of the video to E! News.
“I wanted to do the same thing [as ‘Paparazzi’] with this video,” said the 23-year-old singer who added that the Quentin Tarantino-inspired clip is a commentary on American culture.  “Take a decidedly pop song, which on the surface has a quite shallow meaning, and turn it into something deeper; the idea that America is full of young people that are inundated with information and technology, and turn it into something that was more of a commentary on the kind of country that we are.”
