Shakira Needs Her Boyfriend's Permission To Do Her Own Music Videos

Oh dear. In an interview with Billboard last week, Shakira let on that her boyfriend, Spanish footballer Gerard Piqué, is pretty domineering. On top of simply not allowing her to film music videos with men (no more 'La Tortura?!'), she had to ask him permission to film the steamy faux-lesbian music video for "Can't Remember to Forget You," her collaboration with Rihanna. She goes on:

"He's very territorial, and since he no longer lets me do videos with men, well, I have to do them with women," she says with a laugh. "It's more than implied in our relationship that I can't do videos like I used to. It's out of the question - which I like, by the way. I like that he protects his turf and he values me, in a way that the only person that he would ever let graze my thigh would be Rihanna."

Shakira, Shakira. "Values his turf?" Turf is what your shit boyfriend plays soccer on. You on the other hand are a 234-award-winning powerhouse. Remember? [Dlisted/Billboard]

Not one to be gripped by the coils of Kris Jenner's televised dynasty, Jay Z will probably not be Kanye West's best man at the Wedding of the Century Part II. Jay Z agreed to be Best Man under the condition that no reality TV programs (cough cough) film him, Beyoncé, or baby Blue Ivy, so… clearly that's not going to happen. A sad day for bromance everywhere. [Perez Hilton]

Brooke Burke-Charvet had an interesting and awkward time explaining the difference between being "fired" and being "let go" to her kids, who seemed to insist that she "quit." Either way, some notice from the network probably would have been nice. Via People:

"The only shocking thing about it, for me, was the way in which it all went down. Finding out that I would not be returning to the ballroom just weeks before the premiere was quite a shake up. I would have appreciated a heads-up and the courtesy of communication, but we are not always privileged to get that in the workplace."
