Watch: Beyoncé Performs Especially For A Tiny Terminally-Ill Fan

... Because She is The Best
St. Bey Makes Wishes Come True

As if we needed more proof that Beyoncé has not only won all of 2013 but she is also a saint among humans, we see video today shared by the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Bey making a small fan’s wish come true. Taylon, a young girl who has an inoperable tumor on her brain, wished for the opportunity to sing and dance with Beyoncé. During B‘s performance of the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in Las Vegas, NV earlier this month, Beyoncé made Taylon‘s wish come true … which you can see in the video embedded above. Personally, I couldn’t make it 25 seconds into the video without getting choked up because Taylon looks so happy and so excited. Check out the video and please enjoy. It’s a really fun watch that is totally worth your time.

Watch: Jon Bon Jovi, Taylor Swift & Prince William Sing ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’ Awkwardly Together

Your MUST WATCH Video of the day Year
"We're halfway there ..."

So, Prince William (the current Duke of Cambridge and future King of England) played host at a charity gala that raised money and awareness for the homeless people of Centrepoint and joined Jon Bon Jovi and Taylor Swift on stage for a rousing acoustic rendition of the song Livin’ On A Prayer. Folks, as amazing as this sounds, you ain’t seen NOTHING until you’ve watched the video above. Jon gets the party started by singing the song solo but once Taylor and Prince Wills get on stage … things really get cookin’. At first, Taylor‘s very awkward dancing/clapping thing that she did was the most cringe-worthy part of the performance … but then it becomes painfully evident that Prince William doesn’t know the words to the song (except for the chorus which is so famous that I bet even baby Prince George could sing along as well). Then Prince William started touching his nose frantically like that kid does in the movie Dazed and Confused … which either means that Willy was high or just REALLY REALLY NERVOUS (I bet he wished he had smoked the smokey smoke beforehand, tbqh). At around the 1:53 mark, Jon Bon Jovi brings the song home, Taylor hangs in there with him and Prince William has no idea what to do except nod along, try to mime a few of the words correctly and look over at Jon and Taylor and NOT at all of the cameras trained on him as he sweats thru his expensive tuxedo. Lord, it’s priceless. Watch the video, try not to cringe out of your skin. Enjoy.

PRAY 4 PHILIPPINES

Yesterday we learned that popstar Justin Bieber got in trubs with the law (again) after he hosted a party rager that resulted in a few disturbing the peace complaints by his neighbors.

Bieber, a budding graffiti artist these days, decided to collaborate with some guy named Milk Tyson on a piece of street art that is meant to help raise awareness (and funds) for the victims of the recent typhoon in the Philippines. Click below to see a photo of JB posing with his charitable masterpiece and find out how he plans to raise funds for people in need in the Philippines. More »
