Beyonce & Jay Z did a horrible job in keeping a low-profile yesterday afternoon as they went shopping at a Barneys New York location in Beverly Hills. We have a feeling this was more of a promotional trip because wouldn’t be easier for Jay Z & Beyonce to simply shop online rather than go through all the bullshit of physically hitting up Barneys? Coincidently Jay Z has a Barney’s Collection that he’s trying to pimp, so looks like sales might be below expectations…
The couple were accompanied by their usual security detail and shopping bag carriers. While Queen B showed off her amazing legs in leather short-shorts, Jay Z opted for a more street-friendly look, completely with condom beanie! Three things kept Jay Z from getting racially profiled by racist cops: His security detail, his close proximity to Beyonce and the fact that he has countless millions in the bank.
In other news, AllHipHop.com is reporting that Jay Z will begin work on BarneysNY’s Advisory Council (a.k.a. Not All Colored People Are Stealing From Barneys Council):
When Jay Z announced that he was moving forward with his Barneys collection, he also revealed that he will take a leadership position on a panel reviewing racial profiling at the retailer. According to a Women’s World Daily report, the Brooklyn mogul started his work with the advisory council and some changes to Barneys’ policies as they relate to interactions with the NYPD have been made.

Looks like somebody got their Christmas present from their daughter a little early this year! I always thought you had to be 60/70+ to bag one of these, but I guess the hick community doesn’t follow the same rules as everyone else…

Both Orlando Bloom and Evangeline Lilly were all smiles as they appeared on the red carpet together last night for glitzy ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ premiere held at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. These two will probably travel to numerous other cities around the globe for premieres before the film goes into wide-release on December 13. Check the film’s official website for more photos & trailers.
The hobbit Bilbo Baggins, along with the wizard Gandalf and the dwarf Thorin Oakenshield and his twelve companions, leave the Carrock after the events of the previous film. They continue east to the edge of the forest of Mirkwood where they encounter the skin-changer Beorn. Gandalf departs before the others enter Mirkwood where they are attacked by giant spiders and, except for Bilbo, are captured by Wood-elves. Bilbo helps the dwarves escape from the elves and they follow the forest river to Lake-town, where they meet the Master of the town, and Bard, a bowman and the descendant of the original Lord of Dale. After acquiring a boat and supplies from the town, the company travels to the Lonely Mountain. They eventually find the hidden door into the mountain and Bilbo enters and encounters the dragon Smaug.

With Hollywood still reeling from the death of actor Paul Walker, producers of the incomplete seventh Fast & Furious film have let it out that the show must (albeit with a heavy hearts) go on.
Shooting for the latest F&F movie was about halfway done when Walker died in a car accident this past Saturday with many of Walker’s scenes still left to shoot. The question remains, then, will producers cut his character out of the film, or will they do what seems almost unthinkable and write the death of the character into the script?
According to those in the know, ‘business talk may seem crass, and the adage “the show must go on” may come off as somewhat glib, remember that this was Walker’s franchise as much as it was Vin Diesel‘s.’ And with many hundreds of millions of dollars already having been spent on production, you can bet that producing studio Universal is none to keen to see all of that money go to waste.
The film’s initial release date – July 11, 2014 – still stands at the time of writing.

The last official movie Paul Walker completed before his untimely death this past weekend was Hours, a drama about the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and its effect on a family forced to New Orleans for the birth of their premature child.
Co-starring Genesis Rodriguez, Hours will release in limited theatres on December 15.
The big news from the holiday weekend was that of ‘Fast & Furious’ star Paul Walker’s untimely death at the age of 40. The actor was involved in a car crash while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide in Santa Clarita this past Saturday (Nov. 30). The fact that he was the passenger is very ironic since in his movies Paul Walker’s always the one behind the wheel when racing around in fast cars. His last joyride was inside of a red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT driven by his friend & financial advisor Roger Rodas. He leaves behind a 15-year-old daughter, so we wish her all the best.
As most of you know, Paul Walker was shooting the latest installment of ‘Fast and Furious’–the seventh film in the series—so it will be very interesting to see where the writers take the film. Many people are calling for an end to the series, but with each film making more & more money, I can’t see Universal Pictures just closing shop so easily. We should note that ‘Fast 6′ raked in $788 million at the box-office and we’re pretty sure when ‘Fast 7′ hits theaters next summer, it will probably be the highest grossing film of the franchise.
Curiously, before his death, Paul Walker stated in an interview that an eighth film was pretty much “guaranteed,” with greedy execs at the studio also wanting a ninth and tenth installment in the franchise. Now that he’s gone, will they simply hire Ashton Kutcher as the next Paul Walker and resume business as usual or will they end the series and make spin-off films with the other characters? What’s your take?
