Why Doesn't Beyoncé Have Wrinkles?

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter seems to have it all: brains, talent, an amazing career, a great marriage, and a beautiful daughter. At that point, flawless skin seems like just the cherry on top — but it doesn't come without work.
Before you all go getting your hopes up, part of it is probably genetics. Have you seen her mom, Tina Knowles? Gorgeous. But since we can't all have whatever magic is in the Knowles family DNA, let's take a look at Queen Bey's favorite skincare products.
Smith's Rosebud Salve.Smith's Rosebud Salve, which comes in an instantly-recognizable blue tin, has been a totally inexpensive beauty secret for many for ages — even for some Wetpaint staff! Beyoncé uses the sweet-smelling, petrolatum-based salve on her lips, she told Allure, but it works wonders on dry skin, too.
Water. Yeah, it seems like a no-brainer, but it's really easy to forget to stay hydrated! Hydration can do wonders for the health of one's skin — as Beyoncé's mom has been teaching her since she was a kid.
The short answer: Taylor Swift hasn't gone to college… yet.
At first it might seem like T.Swift has little use for a college degree. After all, she just made the Forbes30 under 30 list in the music category after pulling in a cool $55 million over the past year!
But Taylor's collegiate aspirations are not about some Forbes list — but rather, her bucket list. In a rapid-fire interview with Marie Clairefrom August 2013, she only named one thing she wanted to do before kicking the bucket: "Get a college degree… somehow, someway."
Initially, Taylor opted not to go to college so she could focus on making her musical dreams come true. She told CMT in 2007, "Going to college would mean saying goodbye to my music career, and I just can't do that."But now that her career's pretty much on lock, maybe it's time to look into a little higher education!
Since Fifty Shades of Grey is such a sexually explicit book, it'd make sense that you would want to know just how crazy things will get on-screen when the first film comes out.
In December 2013, Collider got a chance to sit down with film producer Dana Brunetti, who assured fans that the film will get an "R" rating for the theatrical release. He did, however, say that while there are no plans in the works to do so, he thinks it'd be a cool idea to release an NC-17 cut later for fans that "want to get a little more gritty with it."
This seems like a pretty logical course of action, anyway — who wants to see an NC-17 film surrounded by strangers? (Okay, Anastasia and Christian totally would, but they're special.)
