In the look-but-don’t-touch category: Beyonce may want to think about performing in a cage. Her fans get a little too overzealous at times.
On Sunday, at Morumbi Stadium in Sao Paulo, the super-singer was busy bonding with audience members during her Irreplaceable set when a man tried to yank her off the stage. Bodyguards sitting in the front row immediately jumped into action, as you can see in a video on YouTube. Bey, who attended LeBron James’ wedding Saturday night in San Diego then flew right back to Brazil, is a true pro, and she kept right on singing.
During a Denmark concert in May, a male fan reached out and grabbed the Bootylicious belter’s, um, booty.

Vogue may not be interested in Miley Cyrus, but Harper’s Bazaar is loving the frisky, attitude-filled singer. She talked to the magazine’s October issue about her style, new album and interesting makeover.

As for her recent sexually charged antics: “I was an adult when I was supposed to be a kid. So now I’m an adult and I’m acting like a kid.”
Meanwhile, Miley’s ex-fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, is said to be wooing Mexican actress and singer Eiza Gonzalez.

Hugh Grant is deep in daddy mode, so we doubt he’ll mind that Russell Brand is picking up his not-so-sloppy seconds. The Despicable Me comedian is apparently dating heiress/writer Jemima Khan, reports the New York Daily News, which published pics of the two walking arm in arm in Manhattan.
Grant and Khan were together from 2004 to 2007, before the Notting Hill star took up with Tinglan Hong, the mum of his two children, whom he met in a wine bar. Though Brand did not name his lady love, he told The Guardian recently: “I am presently beleaguered by a nerdish, whirling dervish, and am eschewing all others.”
