The divas were out last night. While Diana Ross sashayed across the stage at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, a younger diva, Beyonce, sang her signature vocals at the White House State Dinner. Plus, we've got evidence to support your little wine habit, and R. Kelly redeems himself (for now) with his "Sign of a Victory" song for the upcoming soccer World Cup. Here's what you had to say: Dertz commented: "Beyonce looks beautiful. I love her dress and earrings." LB wrote: "Beyonce needs to learn that there's a time and a place for everything. That blond hair would be okay if she were performing in Vegas, but to be Black with long blond hair at the White House?!"
