Our girl Beyonce is reportedly set to star in yet another musical. And although we’d love it if B showed maybe just little bit more range in her acting roles (Am I the only one that was begrudgingly entertained by Obsessed?), this latest foray onto the big screen might be the role she’s been waiting […]

The 2011 Grammy Awards Report: And the nominees are….BORING.
