Beyonce Knowles: I Just Sacrificed Life

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Music, Style,

Beyonce KnowlesSinger and actress Beyonce Knowles said she has sacrificed her entire life in becoming successful.

The “Single Ladies” singer said that the pressures of celebrity have taken everything away from her that would allow her to enjoy a normal lifestyle.

“I just sacrificed life. Being able to walk down the street and being able to make mistakes and not have it recorded for ever. Being able to have regular relationships and dates. Just regular, normal things that people probably don’t even think about. Sometimes it’s hard.”

Beyonce, 28, also said that during her career - which has so far spanned 14 years recording with Destiny’s Child and as a solo artist - she has hardly ever had any chance to take a break. She added, “I haven’t had longer than a couple of months off ever in my life, since I was 15. But I was raised that anything that’s worth anything takes a lot of sacrifice. And when anything is too easy for me I get scared.”

Lindsay Lohan Held at Gunpoint

Lindsay Lohan may need to kick her addictionsMost likely due to the mass amount of hate directed at her over the Ungaro debacle, Lindsay Lohan was threatened by a gunman on holiday over the weekend.

The Mean Girls actress was left shaken following the terrifying encounter during a break to Morocco - only to discover the weapon being brandished was fake.

She revealed on her Twitter page: “Umm-OMFG! I was walking ahead with the security guard and some guy was following me, then pulled up in his car and pointed a GUN at me! I was on the phone w/my mum and i screamed and ducked and the guy started laughing and pushed the trigger and it was a fake gun..I was crying..he scared me. (sic)”

In a probably not-so-unrelated story, 23-year-old Lindsay’s father Michael has demanded she go into rehab, insisting she needs help for an addiction to painkillers.

Box Office Breakdown: Audiences Say Yes to Jim Carrey

Yes Man

How will remember Winter Solstice 2008? As the weekend he placed second.

Prior to Friday’s premieres, number crunchers were already predicting a close race between headliners Jim Carrey and Will Smith. Unfortunately for Warner Bros., ‘s ultimate victory felt slightly hollow. The comedy’s $18.2 million gross was nowhere near the figures Carrey used to generate. (Bruce Almighty‘s premiere earned $68 million in 2003; Liar Liar took in $31.4 million in 1997.) Yes did, though, do better than 2005’s Fun with Dick and Jane. (That film raked in $14.1 million during its open.)

Will Smith didn’t have much to celebrate over the last three days either. His latest film, , only took in $14.8 million. That’s a number almost unheard of in Smith-land. The drama, directed by Pursuit of Happyness’ Gabriele Muccino, was the actor’s lowest grosser since Ali. (That film earned $14.7 million when it debuted in December 2001.)

Box Office Breakdown: The Day The Earth Stood Still Stands Tall

The Day the Earth Stood Still

Mediocre reviews couldn’t keep from vaulting into first place this weekend.

The sci-fi remake starring Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly earned $30.5 million over the last three days, more than doubling the take of its nearest competitor. Although Earth had the smallest debut for a #1 film since October 17th (when Max Payne grossed $17.6 million), the Fox feature only cost a reported $80 million to make. It was also the studio’s best open since Horton Hears a Who unfolded in back in March.

The only other new entries in this week’s Top Ten were Nothing Like the Holidays and . Holidays took in $3.5 million and scored itself a 7th place finish. Meanwhile, Milk - which had actually reached #10 before - reentered the charts at #9.
