Beyoncé Knowles-Carter finally got around to thanking her #BeyHive for their avalanche of birthday wishes on social media.

The mom-of-three thanked her loyal fans in a heartfelt message posted to her official website, Beyonce.com.

The middle-aged singer hit her 40th milestone on September 4, but waited until Thursday, Sept. 23, to address her most loyal devotees who sent their best wishes.

“As Virgo Season comes to an end, I hope my fellow Virgos had great birthdays,” she wrote.

“I’m so thankful for every inspiring human who took the time to send me all the beautiful messages. I cried tears of joy and was covered in chilly bumps. Your VIDEOS, YOUR POSTS, YOUR countdowns, your playlists and your well wishes, I will cherish forever. I’m grateful to everyone involved, especially, the fans, for the time and level of detail it took to organize such beautiful tributes.”

The “Halo” singer added:

“I admire and respect all of you and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. This is the first year that I really understand what it means to be alive and to live in the moment. It’s the first time that I have an understanding of how fragile life truly is, how hard life can be at times, and therefore how important it is to stop and smell the roses during the good times.

“I thought I knew that at 21 or 30… but I didn’t.

“The more mature I become, the more I understand and the deeper my joy grows. There’s a freedom and liberation knowing that I’ve made it to the other side of my sacrifice. I’m finally giving myself permission to enjoy the seeds I’ve worked so hard to plant my whole life.”

The “Lion King” star, pictured with daughter, Blue Ivy, then turned her attention to people who believe life is over at 40, stating, “This has absolutely been the best I’ve felt in my life. I’m so grateful to be GROWN, GROWN!”

She also addressed rumors that she is older than her stated age:

“Most of y’all met me when I was 15, and we have grown up together. You bring soooo much joy into my life. I hope my art can continue to bring a little joy into yours. I Love You Deep Deep Deep Deep Deep.”

You Good, Bro? Boosie Tweets Homophobic Rant Suggesting Lil Nas X Should ‘Commit Suicide,’ Montero Masterfully Responds

Boosie Badazz is clearly fighting some demons of his own, and for some reason, he’s still taking that out on Lil Nas X.

Over the weekend, Lil Nas X continued to do what he does best: troll. In a clip from Instagram Live, which made its way around social media, the “Industry Baby” singer joked that he has a song with Boosie on the way.

“I been working on this song with Lil Boosie, bro. I have this song with Lil Boosie, gonna come out,” he told fans at the time.

Once Boosie caught wind of this harmless joke, he does what we all expected him to do and threw even more homophobia Lil Nas X’s way–but this time, it was even more violent than usual.

“STOP TROLLING ME F—– LOL!! U A WHOLE B—- PLAYING WITH A GANGSTA SMH U CAN KEEP SUCKING D— N GETTIN F—ED N YOUR A– N PEACE N #uhateyourself I WOULD TOO IF I WAS YOU LOL NASx IF YOU #commitsuicide YOU WOULD DO THIS WORLD A HUGE FAVOR NOBODY WANTS U HERE,” Badazz tweeted on Saturday, October 23.

While the tweet remained published for a while, it has since been deleted for violating the platform’s rules.

In true Lil Nas X fashion, he didn’t respond directly to the alarming homophobia and self-hatred oozing from Boosie at all times. Instead, he took advantage of his name trending on Twitter to troll us all.

“I am truly saddened. i have never been so mortified in my life,” he began. “I can’t believe disney channel has yet to play halloween town this entire october.”

Of course, this is far from the first time Boosie has come for Lil Nas X, but back in September, the singer implied the comments did not affect him.

“I was listening to Boosie in the club the other day. I don’t really care. Honestly, I wish they didn’t say it, I guess,” He said of the rapper during an appearance on The Breakfast Club. “But I like the music, I’m gonna listen to the music. If somebody got beef with me, that doesn’t mean I got beef with them.”

When asked if he would consider replying to the hateful messages, Lil Nas X said, “Only if I have something really witty.”

Emily Ratajowski, Nicholas Braun & More Appear In Halloween Talk Show Sketch On ‘SNL’ With Jason Sudeikis

Emily Ratajowski, Nicholas Braun & More Appear In Halloween Talk Show Sketch On ‘SNL’ With Jason Sudeikis

Kenan Thompson’s ‘D’Andre’ hosted the ‘SNL’ talk show sketch, which included a few familiar faces — including cousin Greg from ‘Succession’!

You never know who might pop up on Saturday Night Live — and October 23rd was no exception! While Jason Sudeikis, 45, hosted the episode, the former SNL cast member had a supporting role in this sketch which was all Kenan Thompson. As a BET logo flashed on the screen, Kenan introduced the spoof talk show called, “What’s Up With That — Halloween Edition” that included some major guests like Emily Ratajkowski, Oscar Issac and Succession’s Nicholas Braun.

“We’re taking on the issues of the day with soul,” Kenan declared, rocking a longer hair ‘do and a ’70s inspired burgundy suit. He went on to introduce his guests — Oscar, who was dressed as a pirate, Emily, as a cat in tiger ears, and Succession actor Nicholas Braun — who appeared to come as just himself.

Kenan didn’t let the gang do much talking, however, as he continued on with his rather repetitive song. “I woke up this morning and I got out of bed…hid from a ghost and a scary black cat….ooh wee. What’s up with that, what’s up with that?” Kenan’s D’Andre crooned with a little help from another guest star: Fred Armisen as Giuseppe the saxophone player and Jason Sudeikis, who appeared to be channeling The Royal Tenenbaums in a red Adidas suit while doing his doing as a back-up dancer.

“Well thank you very much for joining us. We’re excited about Halloween! It might get a little creepy. It might get a little stinky!” Kenan then told the group, as Chris Redd busted a move in the audience before turning his attention to Fred’s Giuseppe.

“I hope your wife is feeling better,” Kenan said to a chuckling Fred, rocking a long wig just like Kenny G (who is one of the most successful artists of all time). “That wasn’t a joke, Giuseppe,” Kenan clarified. After brief chatter with his guests, D’Andre appeared to be confused about Nicholas — confusing him with Lindsey Buckingham from Fleetwood Mac.

“He has been on every show that we have ever had for the last 12 years — Lindsey Buckingham,” D’Andre announced, seemingly thinking the legendary rocker was dressed up as Cousin Greg from Succession. “The best cousin Greg from Succession I have ever seen,” he noted to a confused Nicholas.

“I’m Nicholas Braun,” the Succession star corrected multiple times throughout the sketch. The guests — including Oscar — didn’t get the chance to do much talking, though, as Kenan went right back into his song.

“Well, we outta time — but I wanna thank Oscar Issac for being here,” D’Andre said at the end, with Oscar noting, “That’s how I thought it would go.”

Jason Sudeikis Hilariously Spoofs Ellen DeGeneres On ‘SNL’ With ‘Mellen’ — Watch

Published

Jason Sudeikis

Move over Ellen — Mellen has arrived in the form of Jason Sudeikis! The actor brought his spin on the talk show host to ‘SNL.’

Jason Sudeikis, 45, brought all the laughs on Saturday Night Live — including in this Ellen DeGeneres spoof! The Ted Lasso star played spoofed male version Mellen who dressed just like the talk show host, and had a show in a very similar looking set as a voice over explained the difference between the two.

“Mellen’s a man man! You never know what Mellen might do next! He won’t just hi-five the audience, he’ll fist pump them too,” they explained, noting there were some similarities — including sneak up surprises!

“Just like Ellen, Mellen has sneak up surprises,” the voice over said, as Mellen interviewed Chris Redd‘s character who appeared to be against the COVID-19 vaccine. As Chris was speaking, a nurse pupped up from behind and stuck a syringe right into his neck for a Gotcha! moment. “You just got vaxxed, Mellen style!” Jason’s Mellen quipped.

The actor’s journey to his long-time role at SNL — which gave him the platform for a successful film career — came after he wanted to become a member of the Blue Man Group. “They flew me out to New York…That was August of 2001, right before 9/11. And I got to see myself bald and blue,” he hilariously said to GQ last year. Shortly after, he was asked to audition for Lorne and the Saturday Night Live team — which he wasn’t keen on.

“I didn’t want to work on SNL,” he confssed. “At a certain point in your comedy journey, you have to look at it as like McDonald’s…You have to be like: ‘No. Never’,” he reasoned, eventually, of course, saying yes. “It was like having a crush on the prettiest girl at school and being like, ‘She seems like a jerk.’ And it’s like, ‘Oh, really? ‘Cause she said she liked you.’ ‘She what?!” he went on, drawing a parallel to his actual feelings.

Jason has been in the headlines in recent months for changes in his personal life: the actor’s longtime relationship with Olivia Wilde, 37, came to an end in Nov. 2020. The exes are parents to Otis, 7, and Daisy, 4, who they continue to co-parent. “I’ll have a better understanding of why in a year…and an even better one in two, and an even greater one in five, and it’ll go from being, you know, a book of my life to becoming a chapter to a paragraph to a line to a word to a doodle,” he said in the same interview. “That’s an experience that you either learn from or make excuses about. You take some responsibility for it, hold yourself accountable for what you do, but then also endeavor to learn something beyond the obvious from it,” he also said.
