    Beyoncé ain’t perfect

    Beyoncé has never claimed to be perfect, but the singer may have offered up a bit of TMI in a recent ITV interview.

    “My nose runs a lot and when I’m singing I can’t blow it. So, there have been occasions when I’ve ended up with a ‘bubble’ coming out my nose.”

    The performer, known for her ferocity onstage, also cleared up why she’s always dancing in front of wind machines.

    “Everyone thinks I have the fans because I’m being fashionable, but I work so hard on stage, if I didn’t have them, I’d be dripping,” she explained.

    As far as her body’s concerned, Bey said her feet and ears are her least favorite parts, and that she’d change if she could.

    “I wear big earrings because I don’t like my ears,” she said.

    Actor builds bar in Brooklyn

    Anthony Mackie is building more than just an impressive onscreen resume. The New York Post reports that the actor has built a New Orleans-themed bar in Brooklyn named NoBar.

    Anthony did more than just put up the money for the bar; he built it with his own bare hands. The Hurt Locker star, who also happens to be a carpenter, said he built everything in the bar  "except for the chairs."

    The renaissance man claimed that he had to create the bar himself because he was having a tough time finding a watering hole that was just right for his style. "I wanted a nice local spot where I could relax, play pool or watch a game and get a beer for $5, so I just decided to open one," he said.

    NoBar is set to open tonight, and patrons can munch on Big Easy-inspired dishes such as red beans or jerk chicken wings while guzzling down beer, wine and cocktails.
