Beyonce talked about her divalicious "frugalness" to the UK's Daily Mirror recently. She says:
"Honestly, I’m very frugal. I haven’t bought a car since I was 16 or any diamonds since I was 17," she said.
"I have a lot of property. I’ve invested my money and I don’t have to make any more, thank God, because I’m set. I’m now able really to be free and just do things that make me happy."
Discussing her reasons for being careful with her cash, she said: "I want to have a long career, be respected and not go off track. It’s an effort to stay grounded."
And at Essense's Women In Hollywood Luncheon the other day, Halle Berry got extra teary eyed when accepting an award and talking about her daughter Nahla:
"As a woman, I thought it was all about work and accomplishments. Then this little baby comes along and says that it's not about that...I'm complete. I have more to offer my craft because [my daughter] makes me indelibly better every day."

So Dwyane Wade wasn't satisfied with his estranged wife Siohvaughn withdrawing her allegations that D-Wade's dirty deeds and cheating ways left her with a STD. He's now suing her AND her 2 lawyers for $50,000 a piece. He says his character was defamed, his personal life put on blast, and the ish was just embarrassing. Here's a snippet of his statement to the Associated Press:
"It has been difficult to see false allegations, rumors and gossip repeatedly discussed in public about my personal life. I had no other choice but to file this action in order to clear my name."
D-Wade's lawyer's statement:
"Mr. Wade has been the victim of a reckless campaign by Siohvaughn Wade and her lawyers to publicly humiliate him and damage his reputation. To clear the public record from these false and malicious allegations, we have filed a defamation suit in court ... and will seek appropriate compensation for damages."
And Sioh's lawyer's response:
"We believe there's absolutely no merit to it. I believe that the lawsuit will get dismissed. It seems interesting to me Wade would file a lawsuit like this when he supposedly wants to keep a low profile. This lawsuit will put his entire private and social life in full view of the public."
This ish is like a scandalicious tennis match--back and forth with the he say she say. And I have a feeling it's going to get messier. Siohvaughn told the media today that Dwyane horribly severed his relationship their sons. Their youngest son cries uncontrollably when Dwyane's around because he doesn't know Dwyane is his father. Just a mess...

Too bad TheYBF.com wasn't around back in '01. Terrence Howard was once arrested on domestic violence charges and folks are saying that's why he should have kept his comment (that he later retracted) about Chris Brown & Rihanna to himself. He said:
"It's just life, man. Chris is a great guy. He'll be alright. And Rihanna knows he loves her, you know?
Celebs are dropping their opinions left and right on the Chris Brown/Rihanna situation. And Gayle King is NOT feeling Chris' Sorry 2009 apology. She told EXTRA:
"I can't think of anything that makes me support anything that Chris Brown is saying at this time. And my heart just aches for Rihanna."
Gayle is not trying to hear it. And Rosanne Barr is going off at the mouth about Chris Brown too on her own blog. In her own unique way of course:
"chris brown's lies and excuses make me want to beat the crap out of him...he uses the language of the perpetrator just like every sleazy bastard who ever smacked his wife, kid, mother or girlfriend around uses. you dirty bastard, I hope you go to prison for ten years. IT'S YOUR FAULT, ASSHOLE! as for all the mealy mouthed hollywood and music scene chicks that can't bring themselves to condemn a misogynistic bully, let me say this: your time as whores for propaganda is ending, bitches."

The March issue of DETAILS Magazine hits newsstands February 24, featuring Kanye West. 'Ye now says he is done with music and he's ready to pour all his "superhero" energy into conquering fashion. A snippet:
"Put this in the magazine: There's nothing more to be said about music. I'm the f*cking end-all, be-all of music. I know what I'm doing. I did 808s in three weeks. I got it. It's on cruise control. . . . Man, we talked about music for God knows how long! Now let's talk about how my fucking sweater didn't come back right from Korea. That's what's interesting me."
