1. Beyonce goes to Brunswick. Melbourne loses its sh*t.
Beyonce is in Australia, doing her usual fabulous things. You know, performing her Mrs Carter tour to tens of thousands of her disciples. Getting around town in her black Mercedes. Hanging out the front of a nanna’s weatherboard in Brunswick.
Yes, one of the world’s biggest names was spotted taking part in a photo shoot in Melbourne’s inner-city hipster hotspot.
But she wasn’t sipping a soy chai latte while nibbling on quinoa bread. The star was actually hanging around ‘old Brunswick’, outside the weatherboard cottage of 80-year-old Jeanette Meadows.
There are currently conflicting reports as to how Ms Meadows gave permission for the photo shoot to occur. Fairfax are reporting that she thought she was supporting a young, local musician. But the story we really hope is true is the one we heard on Mornings: apparently Meadows thought that the publicist said that he was doing a photoshoot with his “fiancé.”
Needless to say that this bizarre occurrence has generated quite the response on the interwebs. Here are some of the best memes from the Beyonce in Brunswick Tumblr:
The Palace have released the official photos from Prince George’s christening.
Four portraits were taken: one of Prince George and his parents, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, one of the Royal Family, one of the Royal family and the Middletons, and a special picture of the Queen, Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George, which is the first picture of four heirs of the throne to be taken in over a century.
Flick through our gallery to see the photos, as well as some other pictures from the Christening:
Well, that’s a sentence we never thought we’d write.
In their profile on the royal, Time interviewed 50 of Prince Charles’ closest friends and aides to provide an insight into all facets of the monarch they have dubbed “the forgotten prince.”
But some friends were a little more revealing than others.
In her interview, actress Emma Thompson spoke about Charles’ livelier side. The 54-year-old said:
Dancing with Charles, an old friend, is better than sex.
There’s a long history of relationships between Princes of Wales and actors—not just actresses, not just the rude relationships as [Charles] would say, though god knows I’ve tried. He wasn’t having any of it.
Emma Thompson and Prince Charles dancing. Now that’s something we want to see.
So, in case you’re just crawling out from under a particularly large rock, Kimye got engaged this week. Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian in a stadium with an orchestra, a poorly spelt Jumboscreen message and a ring that was worth more than the GDP of various Mediterranean nations.
