Tale as old as time, true as it can be: Emma Watson will play Belle in a new live-action version of Beauty And The Beast, directed by Guillermo del Toro. We’re not sure who will play the candlestick, or Gaston, or even if there will be a Gaston.

Beyoncé is steaming hot on the cover of Complex even if it does seem like they Photoshopped her thighs. (They look different in the behind-the-scenes video). The girl who runs the world is asked about the gossip that she has rivalries with ladies like Lady Gaga and Rihanna. She says: “There is room on this earth for many queens… I have an authentic, God-given talent, drive, and longevity that will always separate me from everyone else. I’ve been fortunate to accomplish things that the younger generation of queens dream of accomplishing. I have no desire for anyone else’s throne. I am very comfortable in the throne I’ve been building for the past 15 years.” Well damn. [Complex]
