Hot off the press this week Beyonce and Jay-Z find real love, Posh Spice likes being sh*t on, Katy Perry needs a thug in her life and Halle Berry gets crowned the "Sexiest Woman Alive."

Jockin' Jay-Z

The hottest chick in the game has graduated from wearing Hov's chain to donning his five million dollar wedding ring, something Beyoncé has finally gotten around to discussing publicly. Bey previously refused to discuss her relationship with Jay-Z, who she married in a secret ceremony in April but has now opened up about their "real" love in the November issue of Essence where she discusses dealing with the paparazzi, the wedding, the rumored engagement ring, and her real love with Shawn Carter.

In the new issue Beyonce reveals that Jay loves all her "flaws," explaining, "What Jay and I have is real. It's not about the interviews or getting the right photo op. It's real." The 27-year-old singer also revealed she wants to be remembered for changing the world, "I want to be acknowledged as a woman in a very talented group with great harmonies and great songs that made history and changed the culture of women, not only in America but all over the world. A woman who could sing a cappella and write her own songs and produce her own songs."

Rebel Talking... "What Jay and I have is real?" THAT's how she chooses to break her silence??? I hope magazine has some "REAL" quotes and not this "It's real," stuff.

Sh*tty Spice

For those of you who aspire to follow in Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham's fashionable footsteps, you might want to slow your roll before you step in some sh*t.

UK's Closer magazine recently learned that Posh has been indulging in £100 Geisha Facials, using a paste made from nightingale droppings, to combat acne she has suffered since her teens.

Just in case nightingale droppings is too difficult to decipher I'll spell it out in plain English. Posh puts BIRD POOP on her face.

"When Victoria was in Japan recently she was admiring the local women's clear skin and discovered it was down to these facials," a friend told Closer magazine. "She was intrigued and when she got back to the US she found that some New York beauty salons now offer the treatment. She tried it and loved how great her skin looked. She also uses a cream derived from nightingale poo at home."

Rebel Talking... Next time Victoria Beckham starts handing out beauty tips, please pass Poopy Spice the toilet tissue.

Thug Love

"I Kissed A Girl" star Katy Perry graces the cover of the November issue of Blender magazine. In the accompanying article Perry spills the beans about her relationship with rockstar boyfriend, Gym Class Heroes front man Travis McCoy.

"He's thug-nificent," Katy says. "I can't believe I got a thug to commit!" Katy kept it real with the mag though, admitting, "We weren't really together, it was casual. But soulless hooking up didn't seem so hot to me. I always wanted to have a romance. I said "Excuse me, I've been coming to a number of your shows in the greater Los Angeles area for quite some time now. I've been your Penny Lane long enough, and now I want to be your Grace Kelly."

Rebel Talking... Aw Katy kissed a thug and she liked it...

Hot Mama

Halle Berry just got elected "Sexiest Woman Alive" by Esquire magazine. The actress and new mother covers the November "Endorsement Issue."

"I don't know exactly what it means, but being 42 and having just had a baby I think I'll take it," the Oscar winner told the magazine.

Make no mistake about it though, Berry knows plenty about being sexy. "Sexiness is a state of mind -- a comfortable state of being," she says. "It's about loving yourself in your most unlovable moments. I know damned well I am sexier now than I used to be," Berry says of being 42.

Berry also ventured into TMI territory, getting vocal about getting off: "You know the stuff they say about a woman being responsible for her own orgasms? That's all true. And in my case, that makes me responsible for pretty damned good orgasms these days."

Rebel Talking... If sexiness is a state of mind I need to know what Halle has been thinking about.

While you were watching Ellen premiere Kanye's new "Love Lockdown" video, we were congratulating American Idol's teen sensation Paris Bennett on the birth of her daughter Egypt and hoping and looking for tickets to Usher's "One Night Stand" tour.
