Feb 04 - The day's top showbiz news and headlines including Beyonce announces a world tour, Justin Timberlake denies rumors that he insulted Britney Spears, and Robert De Niro cements his hands and feet in Hollywood. Bob Mezan reports.
Fresh off the heels of her Super Bowl performance, Beyonce has announced a world tour - her first since 2009. The pop diva quietly rolled out details on her official website late Sunday (February 03) and released a sneak peak of her new track in a U.K. advertisement campaign. The tour, entitled "The Mrs. Carter Show," will run through Europe this spring, and launch in the U.S. in Los Angeles on June 28. She'll also hit Australia and Latin America. Justin Timberlake has denied rumors that he called his ex-girlfriend Britney Spears a derogatory name at a recent concert. Timberlake performed at a New Orleans pre-Super Bowl party on Saturday (February 02), and according to multiple reports, insinuated that his ex was a witch - although his exact word was a little more offensive. Timberlake took to Twitter to say that he "wouldn't disrespect anyone personally" and that the comment was not directed at Spears. Robert De Niro cemented his place in acting history on Monday (February 04), by placing his hands and feet in concrete in front of Hollywood's historic Chinese Theater. The actor - whose career has spanned 40 years - has won two Oscars, for his supporting role in "The Godfather: Part II," and his lead role in "Raging Bull," and went on to receive five additional Oscar nods, including one for this year's "Silver Linings Playbook."
