Azealia Banks Dodges Beer, Beyoncé Spreads Em For 12 Months, Sexiest Woman Alive Revealed
Mushy Monday. It’s a day filled with mushy headlines starting with Azealia Banks getting mushed and thrown at during a recent concert. Speaking of show-stealers, it looks like Beyoncé Knowles-Carter is going for a 12-month spread. Even though Queen Bey is hip-hop’s favorite, there’s another starlet that’s being named the sexiest woman alive. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Money In The Banks
Is Azealia Banks a standout performer? That all seems to be a matter of opinion but it looks like some people weren’t too impressed with her at a recent Australian concert. XXL Mag is all over this:
Azealia Banks’ experience at the 2013 Listen Out Festival in Australia will be a memorable one for the 22-year-old rapper. Yesterday (October 5) footage was captured of a fan tossing a can at Banks right after the start of her set. According to accounts, she was supposed to perform a 50-minute set but tossed the mic and stomped off stage after someone threw a projectile in her direction only 90 seconds in.
A statement about the incident was released. It reads, “Azealia Banks was forced to cut her set short last night at the Listen Out Festival in Melbourne on 5th October 2013. This was as a result of a member of the audience throwing a full can on beer at her on stage. The incident made Azealia and her stage crew feel unsafe. Banks would like to apologize to those fans in the audience whose experience was affected by the behavior of one individual.”
According to reports, this was the second time someone threw a bottle at the rapper at the event. Last weekend, a concertgoer tossed a beer at Banks only 15 minutes into her set at the Listen Out fest in Sidney. (XXL Mag)
Is Banks starting to lose her widespread appeal? Hopefully not because even though she’s been known to ruffle some feathers these past years, she’s made some really good music. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Spread Em Wide
Is Beyoncé going to give us a special treat for 12 straight months? It appears to be the case but has nothing to do with music or performances. The Queen Bey’s new 2014 calendar is here and it’s sure not to disappoint. Us Magazine has the spread:
Best gift ever? Just in time for the 2013 holiday season, Beyonce is offering twelve months of fierceness! The international megastar is coming out with her very first calendar, and Us Weekly has the exclusive first look! Queen Bey, 32, is stunning and toned on the cover of her brand new 2014 official calendar. Staring seductively into the camera, the “Love On Top” singer traded in her blonde bob once again for subtle curls and her honey locks worn down. With a smokey eye, Beyonce also shows off her rock hard abs wearing a black sequined crop top and a matching hat while holding her right arm up for the stunning pose. (Us Magazine)
Is anyone else wondering how fast this calendar is going to sell out? Could Beyoncé go platinum off of calendar sales alone? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Scarlett In The Making
If Beyoncé isn’t the hottest woman alive, then that could only mean Scarlett Johansson is? It’s a pretty interesting debate but it looks like Esquire is not going to change its mind. E! Online has the inside:
Scarlett Johansson is bringing sexy back to the pages of Esquire. The magazine has named the Don Jon star the Sexiest Woman Alive for the second time in seven years, making her the first woman to ever win the title twice. Johansson looks sultry as ever on the November cover, posing in a sheer tank top, a gray bra, silk shorts and high heels. The 28-year-old beauty first earned the title in 2006, and since then, a lot has changed. Johansson married and divorced Ryan Reynolds; won a Tony Award for her performance in A View from the Bridge; costarred in the third highest-grossing movie of all-time, The Avengers; and got engaged to ad exec Romain Dauriac.

It’s still a pretty touch decision to come up with the “sexiest” of all the women in the world but with Johansson, there’s not much debate this year. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
