In conjunction with her brand new TIME magazine cover, The Most Influential Person, Beyonce Knowles, has officially put out her "Pretty Hurts" video. If you have the Beyonce album you've already seen it. But everyone can check it inside, plus the latest update from Alexsandra Wright...
"Pretty Hurts" serves as one of the "influential messages" songs off the Beyonce album. So it's only right today is its official release. Check out Mrs. Knowles Carter reliving her pageant days...with a twist. She and director Melina Matsoukas sow the ugly side of what it takes to be beautiful.
Meanwhile, Beyonce's half-brother Nixon is now living in a trailer park...with his mama Alexsandra Wright who apparently doesn't feel like getting a job,
When Mathew Knowles was given the OK to drop his $12K/month child support payments to about $2K/month, his baby moms Alexsandra packed up her home and moved into a trailer park with little Nixon.
And, of course, she brought Inside Edition along for the ride.
She told them at her new trailer home in a new interview airing today, "It’s not Beyonce’s fault. I don’t hold her accountable. I hold the father of my child accountable....Take accountability. Stand up, do the right thing.”
A published report insinuated that Alexsandra blamed Beyonce for their "hardship" since she's not helping them financially. She said:
“I got over a thousand of death threats last week alone. Because this article said I blamed Beyonce. And again, let me say for the record—it’s not her fault. I’ve never blamed her. I want the best for her.”
So that they do not go homeless, Alexsandra revealed that women’s support group arranged for them to move into a trailer after she was forced to go on public assistance.

We've been wondering what Lupita's next big Hollywood move would be. The Most Beautiful Person in the world--so says PEOPLE and pretty much everyone--is rumored by the Golden Globes to be up for a big animated film role with "The Jungle Book".
Scarlett Johansson and Lupita Nyong’o are reportedly in talks to join the upcoming Disney’s 'Jungle Book' movie. #actors
It would be a new version of the classic Disney flick. And we're so here for it. Woot!
In the new TIME magazine's Top 100 Most Influential People issue, with 4 covers from Beyonce, GM's CEO Mary Barra, Robert Redford, and Jason Collins, YBF chick Kerry Washington is also featured amongst that Top 100.
Kerry's piece in TIME was written by White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett. Yep...she's THAT influential. Check out what Ms. Jarrett had to say about our fave Gladiator below:
Setting aside the “scandalous” melodrama necessary to sustain a fictional series so titled, Kerry has offered up a fresh new archetype for what it means to lead while combining courage and compassion, strength and vulnerability, passion, steely discipline and unfailing loyalty. It is a role that makes full use of her distinctive talent for drawing in audiences with such authenticity that we often forget she is acting.
Kerry’s work with the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities since 2009 is also a source of deep inspiration, using arts education to close achievement gaps and ignite passion among young people.
In a world that too often tells little girls to choose between womanhood and success, between femininity and a seat at the head of the table, both onscreen and off Kerry Washington embodies the promise that lives in all our young people to shape their own destinies and succeed as “gladiators” for the causes in which they believe.
And "Sleepy Hollow" star Nicole Beharie is also getting her due. She's featured in PEOPLE mag's new Most beautiful issue. And her hot new shot was snapped by actor/photographer Lance Gross. Lance is also her former co-star in the football flick from Matthew Cherry, The Last Fall.
That Tamera Mowry Housley is looking straight flawless these days. Fresh off her EBONY magazine cover with twin sis Tia, mommy Tamera is serving up her post baby bikini body for the world to see.
Check it inside....
How adorable is this?! "The Real" co-host Tamera Mowry Housley is posing it up with her 1 and a half year old son, Aden, in the new issue of InTouch Weekly. And he's stealing his mommy's shine with all that cuteness.
Tamera dished on her post baby get-it-tight-and-right plan. She did it the RIGHT way....and she has no shame that it took her a year to snap back.
She revealed, “It’s the first time I’ve been in a bikini since my honeymoon. I feel great!”
That means it's been three years since she's let anyone other than Mr. Adam Housley see what's under those clothes.
Tamera shared that she's now a svelte 127 pounds, and got there with her own healthy schedule. And about those Hollywood oms who are magically in perfect shape like, hours later it seems:
“I want to punch them in the face!”
She said about her process:
“I wanted to spend time bonding with my baby, not killing myself at the gym.”
And when Aden stopped breast feeding at 87 months old, she cut 500 calories from her 1,700-calories-a-day breast-feeding diet and started working out five days a week.
Get it chick!
A full spread of Tamera's pics, her slimmed down jeans size, workout routine and 80-20 dieting method are in this week's issue of InTouch on newsstands now.
