Beyonce Drops Video for ‘Best Thing I Never Had’

Beyonce just released the new music video to her hit song, “Best Thing I Never Had,” and prepare yourselves to see her rocking a little lingerie number throughout the first half. She wears an absolutely gorgeous white gown with gold embroidery on the bodice afterwards, which is meant to be a sexy wedding dress.

The song reminds us of Beyonce’s other man-bashing track, “Irreplaceable.” Although, with a range as strong and powerful as hers, we don’t mind hearing this similar message a few times over as long as we can continue to hear her talented voice come alive in her music.

We love the “This is what you could have had” attitude that she carries throughout this video. Is it as empowering as you hoped it would be?

Penn Badgley Knows You’re Skeptical About This Whole Jeff Buckley Thing

The announcement of Penn Badgley’s Jeff Buckley biopic has some people questioning whether Penn’s skills extend beyond looking dapper and being the loneliest of boys (both of which he does very well). “I haven’t begun vocal lessons, but I’m taking guitar lessons. I’m obviously, like, throwing myself 200 percent into it,” Badgley reassures New York Mag about his total commitment to the part. “I’m just really prepping in every possible manner, and yeah, vocal lessons will at some point be involved. But it is going to be me playing and singing.” Badgley’s already mastered the art of hair pomade application; clearly musical ability will quickly follow.

Seeing as how rumors of a Robert Pattinson Jeff Buckley film brought out people’s true opinions about which slender, mopey young actor would be better at playing the late musician, Badgley wants everyone to know just how honored he is at the opportunity to do better than Robert Pattinson. “And, you know, the reason I’m telling you is because, obviously, there’s a whole lot of people who are skeptical,” Penn admits. “[S]o I would … I just want to be clear that I’m very moved by the opportunity, and I really am giving myself to it.” We don’t know enough about him, but if Jeff Buckley wore vests and made out with Blake Lively, then Penn has this one in the bag.
