Did Beyoncé Breastfeed?
Her daughter Blue Ivy is now 2 years old, but Beyoncé caused a stir when she was a new mama after a source told Us Weekly she was breastfeeding… in public. Shock! Awe! Tons of long think-pieces on the Internet!
We never got actual confirmation, photographic or otherwise, that Blue was breastfed in a public place, but Bey did discuss having breastfed her daughter in a documentary that came with her recently-released documentary, "Self-Titled." Being a working mama is tough, she said, and sometimes she needed to multi-task.
“I was breastfeeding, cornrows in my hair, because I was spending so much time being a mother. I would take a few hours out of the day and record," she revealed. "I was trying to get my focus, and my dreams, and myself back."
We're always impressed by Beyoncé's ability to be herself and follow her dreams — and glad she's able to balance motherhood and stardom. Because what would a world without both Blue Ivy and new Beyoncé jams be? No world we want to live in, that's for sure.
Who Did Kate Middleton Borrow Her Tiara From?
As a member of the royal family after her marriage to Prince William, Kate Middleton is just the latest in line to wear a few fancy accessories from the royal vault! Among the pieces Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has worn are a couple of different tiaras that, technically speaking, don't belong to her: a Cartier "halo" tiara, worn on her wedding day, and the Lotus Flower tiara, worn to a December reception at Buckingham Palace.
The Cartier piece was Kate's "something borrowed" at her 2011 royal wedding — and she's the third to wear it! The tiara was originally made in 1936 for Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, who gave it to Queen Elizabeth II, the current Queen (confused yet?), for her 18th birthday. The diamond headpiece was used to set her veil in place.
More recently, though, the Duchess wore a similar piece with a royal history: Also originally a possession of the Queen Mother, the crown was passed down to Queen Elizabeth II's sister, Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon. Adorned with both diamonds and pearls, the piece was also worn by Margaret's daughter-in-law Serena Stanhope for her 1993 wedding to Viscount Linley.
So there you have it: While Kate probably didn't lock these pieces up in her own jewelry box/vault/wardrobe/fort (whatever she uses) when she got home, "borrowing" only scratches the surface of what happened with those tiaras.
Is Katy Perry a Witch?
Katy Perry looked awfully witchy at the 2014 Grammy Awards on January 26 — probably because she purposely dressed up as a witch. Borrowing looks from witchy music and fashion icon Stevie Nicks, Katy took the stage for a performance of her song "Dark Horse," which ended with a burning-at-the-stake tableau. (This wasn't Katy's first time paying homage to those burned at the stake, either — she wore a Dolce & Gabbana Joan of Arc dress to the 2013 Met Gala.)
While stage performances do not a real identity make — Pink singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" doesn't turn her into the late Judy Garland, after all — a small faction of people freaked out. Ex-Fox News host Glenn Beck even called the act "full-fledged witchcraft." We may be going out on a limb here, but we're pretty sure no magic(k) was actually performed during the stage show.
Back to the question at hand, though: Is Katy Perry a witch? Let's go down the Merriam-Webster definitions for "witch" real quick:
A woman claiming or popularly believed to possess magical powers and practice sorcery. Only Glenn Beck believes that Katy actually practices sorcery, as far as we know. So no.
A believer or follower of Wicca; a Wiccan. Katy hasn't said anything about being a practicing Wiccan, so we're going to go with "no" on this one.
A hag. Well, you can make your own judgments, but this one gets a solid "no" from us.
A woman considered to be spiteful or overbearing. You'd probably have to know Katy personally to make a call here.
A woman or girl considered bewitching. We'd say this qualifies as a "yes" for Katy!
One particularly skilled or competent at one's craft. That's a second "yes."
Short answer: Katy's… sort of a witch? But only if you mean she's gorgeous and talented.
