Beyonce is looking for young talent! She just signed three teenage girls to her Parkwood Entertainment company. Because they’re minors, Beyonce is asking a Manhattan judge to approve the 5-year deals. The first contract is for 17-year-old Chloe Bailey and her 15-year-old sister Halle. Beyonce’s manager saw the sisters cover of Beyonce’s “Pretty Hurts” on YouTube, so that should encourage young girls everywhere to start posting more Beyonce covers! The Bailey sisters’ contract is worth $1 million contract and provides for up to six albums over five years. Bey will get 15 percent of their gross earnings. Beyonce has also signed 14-year-old Sophie Beem to a $560K deal. You may remember her from a couple years back when she was a contestant on “The X Factor.”
Remember when Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn did a couple’s photo session to announce they were dating, but they each went on their own social media accounts to announce their breakup. Lindsay posted first: “I will always cherish the memories that we’ve created together. Unfortunately, we both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart. I will always admire and respect Tiger. He and his beautiful family will always hold a special place in my heart.” And Tiger said pretty much the same thing on his website. He wrote, “Lindsey and I have mutually decided to stop dating. I have great admiration, respect and love for Lindsey and I’ll always cherish our time together. She has been amazing with Sam and Charlie and my entire family.” And Tiger also use the same “hectic lives” excuse for the breakup.
According to “Star” magazine, Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden are already having marriage trouble. According to sources, Benji thinks Cameron should give up the romantic comedy roles and do edgy, indie films. He even went with her to a meeting with a new talent agency, and things apparently didn’t go so well. Sources say Cameron walked out of the meeting and Benji chased her down to the lobby. That’s were Cameron let him have it, telling him he knew nothing about the film business and he should focus on his music.
