New Beyoncé song hits the web
Just days after Beyoncé dominated the stage with her performance of "Run The World (Girls)" at the Billboard Music Awards, a new single has surfaced.
"Till the End of Time," another track from her upcoming album 4, found its ways online earlier today. But it seems Bey’s people have pretty much plugged the leak. Most rips of the song were wiped from the blogosphere almost as soon as word got out that it had leaked.
The only version we were able to find had the words "for internal use only" stamped throughout the song.
We were able to find one version of the song, which includes Bey pledging her undying love. "Come take my hand / I won’t let you go / I’ll be your friend," Bey sings, "I will love you so, deeply/ I will be the one to kiss you at night / I will love you till the end of time." Give it a listen.
The Royals meet the Obamas
Prince William and his new bride made a little time in their schedule to host American royalty.
People.com reports that President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama visited with the newlyweds at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.
The Obamas chatted it up with Will and Kate for about 20 minutes before meeting Queen Elizabeth for lunch. The couples may have discussed the royal wedding, which the president and Michelle weren’t invited to, during the chat. The younger couple, however, definitely discussed their upcoming trip to the states to visit the Obamas.
Amber Rose takes the high road
When Kanye West dissed Amber Rose at the Coachelle Festival, rapping, "I did everything for that blond d!ke, and she’ll anything if the time’s right," she took it in stride.
As far as she’s concerned, the shot he took at her while performing "Stronger" was just sad.
“It’s just unfortunate that he said that in the song ’cause that’s not the lyrics," she told XXL magazine. "I can say whatever I want about him. I can write a book or do whatever, but I choose to take the high road. It’s just unfortunate he has to constantly say sh**.”
Amber said she "didn’t have a voice" when she was with Kanye, a problem she’s shaken off since hooking up with Wiz Khalifa. "We show our love to the world. We don’t try to hide it; we’re not quiet about it," Amber said. "We’re just in love and we’re just happy and we want people to follow in our footsteps and not be afraid to be in a committed relationship.”
Cali Swag District remembers M-Bone
The remaining members of Cali Swag District released a song in tribute to slain member M-Bone, called “How to do That.”
A little more than a week after M-Bone was gunned down, JayAre, C-Smoove Da General and Yung released the track honoring the group member they refer to as the “life of the party.”
Although rumors surfaced accusing a jealous neighbor of shooting M-Bone, no arrests have been made in the case.

Coco celebrates new line
Coco, wife of legendary rapper Ice-T, recently celebrated the launch of her new clothing line, called Coclicious.
It’s possible that Coco’s fashion line features waterproof attire, considering that the 32-year-old dipped into the pool to boogie while still wearing her pink, skintight dress.
The party, which took place at New York’s Grace Hotel, may eventually wind up on TV for all to see once Coco’s E! reality series airs. The show is reportedly in production now.
Watch Coco and her friends party.
