Beyoncé Shuts Down Beer Named After Her With Cease And Desist Letter

A brewery just learned the hard way that making something as a tribute to an icon of yours, like a Beyoncé beer, can have some unexpected negative consequences.

A post shared by Lineup Brewing (@lineupbrewing) on

Lineup Brewing, based in Brooklyn, New York, was issued a cease-and-desist letter from Beyoncé and her legal team after they unveiled a new brew inspired by the singer. Called Biëryoncé, the pilsner was distributed in a can that featured a design from Beyoncé’s 2013 self-titled album.

Lineup’s beer debuted on November 30th, shortly after which owner Katarina Martinez received the cease-and-desist notification.

“As a Hispanic, female run business, I am very inspired by her so I thought I’d pay homage,” Martinez told Pitchfork. “We’re disappointed she didn’t take it as a compliment, but oh well. It was fun while it lasted!”

Pitchfork reports that any beer released already is still available, predominantly in the New York area. Fans hoping to collect a can or two may want to save them as memorabilia, since based on how this Beyoncé beer fiasco went down, it may be a while before somebody else comes up with their own alcoholic tribute to the actress.

Beyonce’s Candid Restaurant Photo Spawned A Buffet Of Memes

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

If you’re at celeb status like Beyonce or Kim Kardashian, chances are your extremely candid photos are apt to get memed to death when the opportunity presents itself.

That’s exactly what happened when Beyonce uploaded a collection of photos to her Instagram account last night. Time reported that the photos were taken at Los Angeles restaurant Beauty and Essex for a birthday celebration.

One of these photos captured Beyonce ordering off of the menu at the restaurant. Naturally, the internet gave it its best shot at interpreting the dialogue in this exchanged. We’ve compiled some of the funniest guesses the Internet has put forward:

Some of them were comical suggestions as to what Beyonce actually ordered that night.

Others made some puns about her hit song Lemonade and the fact that she was at a restaurant.

 

Apparently, the menu looks a lot like a receipt, because tons of jokes about the bill came flowing in too.

Well done, internet. You’ve really taken it to the next level with this round of memes.

Former Souplantation Manager’s Creepy Craigslist Ad For A Coachella Date Gets Deleted

With the recent news of Souplantation’s parent company, Sweet Tomatoes, filing for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, and rumors that some locations could close, it’s safe to say some employees are looking for a way out.  Well, one such former employee has made it clear that he’s clearly over his managerial role at the all-you-can-eat chain and is set on, “JUST FUN,” from now on.

Gordon, as he calls himself in a recently posted Craigslist ad — which has now been flagged for removal — is looking to attend Coachella with a, “travel companion.”

In his ad, the newly divorced 56-year-old former Supervising Manager at Souplantation from West Covina explained that after 11 years of marriage, he recently quit his job, cashed out his 401K, and wants to party — beginning with a fun-filled VIP experience during Weekend 2 of Coachella 2017.

Here’s an image of the now deleted ad.

screen-shot-2017-01-05-at-3-20-50-pm

Gordie’s Craigslist ad seemed innocent enough at first, but quickly transitioned into a creepy, slightly questionable solicitation for a 19 to 25-year-old female with a, “(#3) … fashionable sense of style in the vein of typical coachella goer (i.e. cute indian headband, small ripped jean shorts, lots of colorful bracelets, etc),” who should be willing to follow a 20-point checklist of semi-repulsive requests during the the four-day weekend together.

screen-shot-2017-01-05-at-3-37-44-pm

While Gordon’s first few rules aren’t that disturbing, things quickly progress into the transgressive realm, starting with stipulation #5.

5. Must keep hands and feet moisturized at all times.

Um, sure?

As the list grows, Gordon’s requests started to shadow a deep sense of fetishism and obsessiveness, not to mention some were borderline demanding.

screen-shot-2017-01-05-at-3-50-43-pm

Rule #10 was especially critical: Being social is fine but no excessive fraternizing with other male festival-goers, and most definitely NO PUBLIC AFFECTION with other festival-goers (violation of this rule results in immediate removal of Tropic Motor Motel room privileges and maybe even return ride).

So, your guest isn’t supposed to interact with other people at a festival? Why not just watch it online?

Here comes the heavier stuff. Take a breath.

Rule #11 states, “Periodic moments of extended eye contact.”

Wut?

Rule #12 is pretty much where it all started going south.

12. Allow me to brush your hair once per day (not mandatory, but encouraged).

Huh? Why?

Gordon’s not done there. The list continues with awkward requests that seem to showcase a slightly voyeuristic personality, mixed with slight delusion.

For example, rule #15 stated, “Any personal grooming such as toenail clipping, eyebrow plucking or lipstick application must be done in my presence.”

It’s called personal grooming for a reason, Gordon!  Can’t we just go watch Beyonce?!

There’s really no explanation for the rest of his requests, but hey, here we go.

#17. At least twice during the festival you must tell me in a playful manner that “I am naughty.”

Nope.

#18. At some point in time during the festival you must tell me that, “you didn’t know how this would go, but you’re actually having a really good time.”

Why would I lie?

Rule 19 is probably is by far the creepiest request:

19. At least once during our stay after your shower, you must use the steam to write a cute message on the bathroom mirror for me to find later when I shower.

Does, “HELP ME!!!!” count?

Lastly, Gordon’s just there to have a sweet-ass time and just wants you to have a blast, as long as you’re not in violation of the 8,500,000 set of rules he has established.

20.  Must be ready to party and HAVE FUN.

It’s easy to see why this ad was removed, but still, it’s only fair that we hope Gordon meets the, “right one.” But, perhaps he should do so under some less invasive, and more moderately acceptable circumstances.

19 Times Beyonce Lyrics Made Us Hungry

Whether you’re a proud member of the BeyHive or not, there’s no denying Beyoncé is one bad bitch. Her songs seem to cover a pretty wide range of emotions (er…topics), from her naïve early days as the lead lady of Destiny’s Child, to the straight-up nasty music in collab with her ~supposedly~ philanderous husband, Jay Z, in her self-titled album, to the more recent, heart-wrenching Lemonade about said philanderous husband. ‘Yoncé pretty much kills the game no matter what her mood is and no matter how much of a dickwad Jay Z feels like being that day.

Regardless of the subject, the woman knows how to throw in a good food reference, and here are 19 song lyrics to prove it. As a spoiler alert, half of these are sexual innuendos, and the other required some serious research to understand, but we’ll take it.

 

beyonce ice cream truck
This sentence is pretty much verbatim from the section where they first explained what a “simile” was in my seventh grade English textbook. Plus, everyone loves ice cream. Way to kick off your debut solo album with a classic, Beyoncé.

 

beyonce summertime
Who would have known P. Diddy would be the type of person to care so much about B’s mental health like that?! Leave it to Mr. Combs to remind us about what’s important in life.

 

beyonce love on top
Based on the number of times Beyonce says “again” here, we’re going to assume this was a full on mack sesh. But hey, if he’s throwin’ out the dough for the good stuff, I’d be down to kiss him all night, too.

 

beyonce drunk in love 1
This quote refers to a time where Tina Turner, formerly known as Anna Mae, got cake shoved in her face in broad daylight by her abusive and jealous husband, Ike Turner. Not cool. Way to be insensitive, Jay Z.

 

beyonce party 2
Sounds like a typical Friday night with friends. And by friends, I mean food.

 

beyonce 711
Moral of the story – don’t mess with Beyonce and her liquor or she’ll f*ck you up.

 

beyonce creole
You might have to think about this one, but once you get it, you’ll know.

 

beyonce work it out
Raise your hand if you still find it incredibly creepy when ladies call their men “Daddy”.

 

beyonce partition
For all you noobs out there like me who have no clue what this means, this phrase refers to all the ass pics on Instagram. There must be a ton of them to warrant their own phrase. *hastily opens Instagram*

 

beyonce formation
I’m sure men everywhere heard this lyric and stepped up their game once they realized they could get a free seafood feast out of a little added foreplay.

 

beyonce party
Am I the only one whose mind automatically wanders to an image of Beyoncé covered in tomato sauce looking really uncomfortable?

 

beyonce drunk in love 2
TBH, I would probably walk right out the door if a man ever referred to my boobs as “breastases.” I wonder about you sometimes, Jay Z.

 

beyonce blow
I solved your riddle, alright. As a side note, I personally think every Sex Ed class should employ this metaphor for the female anatomy whenever possible. We’d have a lot less confused guys out there. Thank you, Beyoncé. You really are a saint.

 

DSC08912
C’mon, why you gotta do a guy like that? He was just in the food court eating a gyro! Pronounced yee-roh, btw.

 

beyonce sake
Okay so technically Yamazaki is whiskey not sake, but it’s cool, B. As a matter of fact, Yamazaki is the first whiskey to be commercially produced in Japan. It’s pretty incredible, if you’ve never tried it.

 

beyonce suga mama
From this sentence, I’m going to assume Beyoncé is trying to say that she is sweet, wet, and messy. Did I get it? Did I crack the code???

 

beyonce in da club
I’ve said this on multiple occasions, but Beyoncé, can I be you?

 

beyonce partition 2
If you’re ever looking for an exposé on the sex lives of the rich and famous, let Partition be your guide.

 

beyonce formation 2
For those times when somethin’ just needs a little extra spice.

 

Well, after all this I think it’s pretty clear I need to spend more time on Urban Dictionary in an attempt to understand all of these euphemisms because I struggled to keep up.

You keep doin’ you, Beyoncé. Can’t wait to see what you come out with next.

This Is All The Food Beyoncé DEMANDS While Out On Tour

beychicken

One look at Beyoncé and you have no doubt that she keeps a strict diet, but even with a healthy dose of veggies around her, “Queen Bey” makes sure that she covers her chicken in a thick layer of seasoning whenever she’s out on tour.

Apparently Bey is dangerously in love with baked chicken wings, legs and breasts, and goes extremely heavy on the cayenne pepper, garlic, salt, and ground pepper, according to Business Insider.

While that might make Beyoncé fans fear for their queen’s blood pressure, the rest of her tour demands consist of steamed garlic broccoli, lightly seasoned green beans and lightly seasoned spinach. So, balance still rules in her flawless diet.

As far as drinks, “Sasha Fierce” rolls with cases of Aquafina and hot tea.

Sorry, guys, lemonade didn’t make the cut.

I guess when you’re Beyoncé, you can eat whatever the hell you want, so if she wants chicken covered in an ungodly amount of seasoning, not even Becky with the good hair can keep her from it.

A Restaurant For Nude People And Colorful Rainbow Pizza [THE KATCHUP]

If I’ve learned one thing from The Katchup, it’s that “crazy” and “food” go together like Bey and Jay. Oh, wait…

A young boy began selling lemonade in order to pay for his own adoption. Direct hit to the feels, am I right or am I right? Beyonce’s Beyhive (aka biggest fans) went into full attack mode on celebrity chef Rachael Ray after mistaking her for the woman Jay-Z is accused of having an affair with, American fashion designer Rachel Roy.

If you ever want the government to seize your Venmo funds, just write “ISIS” in the memo. One dude learned that the hard way. A new restaurant in London will cater to nude people in order to create a “natural” eating environment. Sounds like a waste of a lot of good chairs to me. Finally, somebody went out and made rainbow-colored pizza, because why the f*** not?

I hope you brought some hot dogs, because we’ve got…

THE KATCHUP!

Beyonce’s Album ‘Lemonade’ Gives New Life To The Lemon Emoji

Britney Spears’ utter domination of the world in the late 90s and early 2000s was the first time a woman became president of the entertainment industry since Madonna at her peak. The throne was empty for a while, until Beyonce saw an opportunity and swooped. I think I speak on behalf of everyone when I say, “Dope.”

Screen Shot 2016-04-28 at 4.18.51 PM

Queen Bey recently released a “visual album” on April 23rd called Lemonade, a collection of songs that are each accompanied by a music video and all presented to viewers in one fell swoop. Similarly to King Midas, everything Beyonce touches turns to gold, as did this album. People took to social media to express their opinions and, thanks to an initial tweet by Tidal (the company that exclusively released the album) that used the lemon emoji several times, the sour citrus fruit began to spread like wildfire.

When it comes to food emojis, nobody really uses them outside of the taco, pizza, eggplant (as a stand-in for a penis), peach (as a stand-in for butts) and beer mug. After the release of her album, use of the emoji just on twitter alone skyrocketed from 25,000 to roughly 450,000 just from April 23rd to April 24th.

The bee emoji, used in reference to Beyonce’s nickname “Queen Bey” (pronounced bee), also blasted to the top of the chart, going from (on average) 70,000 sightings on April 22nd to peaking at 250,000 on April 24th.

Screen Shot 2016-04-28 at 3.50.10 PM

It’s nice to see some other emojis get some loving, although it seemingly comes at the cost of a few reputations, most notably Jay-Z and Rachael Ray, the celebrity chef who is being wrongly accused of having an affair with Jay.

Over the weekend, Beyoncé released her visual album “Lemonade” on HBO that some have speculated to be about Jay Z cheating with the ex-wife of his former best friend and business partner Damon Dash.

“Lemonade” included videos for 12 of its 13 songs and powerful lyrics that touched upon subjects of infidelity, love, family and empowerment. Her spoken words had fans wondering if her husband Jay Z had been unfaithful to his wife. In her song “Sorry” Beyonce’s lyrics stated:

“He only want me when I’m not on there/ He better call Becky with the good hair.”

The person “Becky with the good hair” is allegedly in reference to fashion designer Rachel Roy, who is rumored to have been the cause of the infamous elevator confrontation between Jay Z and Beyonce’s sister, Solange Knowles, in 2014.

According to Rachel Roy, upon the album’s release, Roy posted a photo of herself and her friends on Instagram that has since been taken down with the caption:

“Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. Live in the light #nodramaqueens.”

Now Bey’s army of loyal fans are on the attack and mistakenly terrorizing Rachael Ray who they have mistaken for Rachel Roy.
