Jay Z & Beyoncé: Coming to a City Near You

Yes, the undisputed King and Queen of the Music World – or just the world in general – are rumored to be going on tour together this summer. While the duo hasn’t confirmed anything just yet, sources tell Page Six that Bey and Jay will perform at 20 stadiums beginning in late June. There have even been whispers about a July 4 concert in NYC. (Fireworks and this “Crazy in Love” couple? Count me in.)

If their latest Grammy Awards performance was any indication, this show is sure to be one for the books. Clear your summer schedules accordingly.

How did you get started in your career?
I got an internship at ELLE magazine. I initially had a hybrid role working for both the beauty and the features departments. I got to test out hundreds of new products, learn the science and technology behind beauty products, go to press events and, most importantly, I learned how to write (it’s harder than you think!). Interning is the best way to work out if a job is right for you or not. I knew immediately that I wanted to be in the editorial world. When a fashion position opened up at ELLEgirl magazine I jumped at the chance.

Leaving Late-Night: Chelsea Handler Wraps Talk Show

After eight years of witty remarks and oft-raunchy jokes, Chelsea Handler – TV’s sole late-night comedy queen – is stepping down from her E! throne. And now, as Handler gears up to leave Chelsea Lately at the end of this year, we have so many unanswered questions. Who will fill her shoes? What will she do next? And, most importantly: Where will Chuy go?

Chelsea Handler Leaving Talk Show

According to her manager, Irving Azoff, who spoke with The Hollywood Reporter, the comedian has been actively contemplating her post–talk show career. She’s also rumored to be in negotiations with several different “suitors.” Among them? Netflix, FX, and even a few radio stations. The fate of her faithful sidekick, however, remains unknown.

Brad Pitt to Star in True Detective: Yea or Nay?

When I caught word that Matthew McConaughey wouldn’t be returning for season two of True Detective, I have to admit, I panicked. However, considering the HBO show is an anthology and with each season the cast and theme changes, I should have been prepared to see McConaughey go. As for his replacement? It looks like the show might enlist the one and only Brad Pitt. But, to be honest, that’s not really easing my anguish. Or anyone else’s, it seems.

Lena Dunham Is About to Prove She’s Just “Not That Kind of Girl”

If you’re anything like me, it’s almost like Lena Dunham – a.k.a. Hannah Horvath – is speaking directly to you via her HBO original series, Girls. She can’t pay rent? You can’t pay rent. (Well, sometimes.) Ups and downs with your best friend? Preaching to the choir. And now, us just-like-me fans can connect with Dunham through a whole new medium: a book.

Zooey Deschanel Gets Another 30 Minutes on FOX

We love her on New Girl, and soon Zooey Deschanel will be stealing our hearts yet again with another FOX show: the half-hour animated workplace comedy titled Queen of Everything. The show, which Deschanel will executive-produce along with Sophia Rossi and Ali Waller (who also produces American Dad and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon), is a modern-day fairytale about an evil queen who enlists the help of her staff to try and change her ways.

We’re not quite sure if her voice will be starring in the program or not, but as long as that quirky sense of humor of hers is, we’ll definitely be tuning in.

Back to Black: Laura Prepon Returns for Season 2 of Orange Is the New Black

We all have an ex we love to hate, and that drives-you-crazy dynamic is one of the many factors that has me addicted to Orange Is the New Black. The memoir-based Netflix series stars Taylor Schilling as a privileged, preppy 30-something who’s serving time in the same women’s prison as her former flame, bad girl Alex Vause (played to despicable perfection by Laura Prepon), for a drug-trafficking attempt gone wrong a decade earlier.

The Nike Bowl: Broncos vs. Seahawks Uniforms

At this point in the day, I assume you’ve talked your fair share of touchdowns and fumbles, fully (or at least partially) recovered from that buffalo-chicken dip, and watched Richard Sherman share a soft-spoken moment or two with the camera. So let’s talk more serious things. Like “The Nike Bowl.”

Seahawks Broncos Uniforms

That’s right. Last night, both teams wore Nike – and two of brand’s most significant signature designs, at that. The Denver Broncos’ orange-over-white, debuted with much fanfare in 1997, is what ESPN dubs “Old Nike.” The Seattle Seahawks’ white-over-navy? As Nike’s showcase when they took over the NFL uniform contract in 2012, they were dubbed “New Nike.” Naturally.

So who takes home the best-uniform title? Old or New? I’m staying Sweden here. Read the full scoop on ESPN, then tweet us at @ruelala and cast your vote.
