Beyoncé looking ***Flawless in CR Fashion Book's Fall Issue
Beyoncé is the epitome of a quadruple threat. She can sing, dance, act and also strike a pose. With her 15-minute VMA performance still lingering in our minds, the singer is now the cover star of Carine Roitfeld’s fifth and Fall issue of CR Fashion Book. The Pretty Hurts singer can be seen striking killer poses at the editorial shoot, directed by none other than Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci and shot by Pierre Debusschere.

Besides being fierce in every possible way, Beyoncé also shared a song based on an interview called Bey the Light (oh the pun, it's intentional) where she reveals her personal life, including her biggest inspiration, her baby girl Blue Ivy. You can pre-order the book here, and it will be out on September 4.

Here's the excerpt of the song:
“It’s my daughter, she’s my biggest muse,
There’s someone, we all find out soon,
more important than ourselves to lose.
I feel a deep bond with young children—
all those photos in my dressing room—
especially those who’ve been stricken,
children I’ve met across the years—
they uplift me like pieces of moon,
and guide me, whispering in my ear.
I’m tuned to spirits, the emotions of others.
And I feel her presence all the time
Though I never met my grandmother.
I learned at a very young age,
When I need to tap some extra strength,
to put my persona, Sasha, on stage.
Though we’re different as blue and red,
I’m not afraid to draw from her
in performances, rifts, even in bed."

Will.i.am releases an eyewear line

Another celebrity has entered the fashion world, and this time it comes as no surprise that Will.i.am has entered the eyewear game. The front man of Black Eyed Peas and producer has released dual-gender optical and sunglass line called ill.i Optics by will.i.am. With the help of his friend, Australian designer and co-founder of Ksubi, George Gorrow, his vision for his optical line sets out to "marry the retro feel with futurism, take yesterday's sensibility with today's aesthetic," he told WWD.

Plus, the producer has also released some sort of worn-on-the-wrist phone called i.am.plus. But Will will get back to that later, after his eyewear line is released on September 16.

Shakira is pregnant with second child
Calling all hot moms across the world, because Shakira has announced that she is expecting her second child with footballer boyfriend, Gerard Pique. The beautiful couple met when Shakira performed her famous World Cup anthem Waka Waka (It's Time for Africa) at 2010's World Cup and Gerard was playing for Spain's national team. 

The Colombian singer recently gave birth to her son, Milan, in January last year. Maybe her second child will be named Paris or Barcelona? No? Just saying.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are married!

While Shakira and her Spanish beau announced their bundle of joy, power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have finally wed in a secret wedding in France last Saturday after dating for nine years and considerably expanding their Jolie-Pitt family. About time, Brangelina.
