Beyonce’s Red Lobster Mention In “Formation” Boosts The Restaurant’s Sal

“You know you that b*tch when you cause all this conversation,” says Beyoncé on her new song “Formation.” Apparently, she can cause a franchise’s sales to rise just by mentioning its name. Queen Bey’s single also includes a reference to Red Lobster, and the seafood restaurant chain is benefiting from the shout out. [ALSO READ: Beyonce Revisits Hurricane Katrina In “Formation” Video] According to spokesperson Erica Ettori, Red Lobster saw a significant boost in sales after the Grammy-winning superstar included the line “When he f*ck me good I take his ass to Red Lobster” on “Formation.” The company was apparently mentioned 42,000 times on Twitter in a single hour and become a trending topic for the first time in history. “We’ve been comping up since ‘Formation’ was released and we saw a 33% increase in sales on Sunday,” Ettori told Billboard. “It’s clear that Beyonce’s shout out contributed to that. This is a real testament to the power of pop culture on business.” Red Lobster did catch some backlash on Twitter for its relatively slow response to Beyoncé’s song. In the age of social media, recognition from a global pop star is expected to be acknowledged in mere moments. Fans criticized the chain for taking hours to simply offer up a tweet that read, “‘Cheddar Bey Biscuits’ has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?” It appears Red Lobster is now clearly aware of the power of celebrity and social media. “We are absolutely delighted with what we saw over the weekend, particularly the consumer sentiment that we saw expressed,” stated Red Lobster CEO Kim Lopdrup. “It’s clear that Beyoncé has helped create some Red Lobster fans, and we are very grateful to her for that.”

A Milli, A Milli, A Milli: Lil Wayne Reportedly Owes Over $12 M To IRS

Lil Wayne has mended his professional and personal relationship with Baby. It appears that the Louisiana lyricist has more legal woes. Earlier today (Feb. 9), it was reported that Cash Money MC owes the Internal Revenue Service $12.8 M, this according to The Jasmine Brand. [ALSO READ: I Can’t Leave Drank Alone: Lil Wayne Reportedly Back On That Sizzurp?] Previously, the “A Milli” musician had amassed a list of tax liens. Back in 2014, the sizable amount of about $868,079.89 was imposed by the Department of the Treasury. Adding to his financial burden, the Federal government contends that Mr. Carter failed to pay taxes for the years of 2012 and 2011. For the respective years, Uncle Sam is holding Wayne responsible for not paying the $6,311,132 or the $5,843,952 that was owed. Given the seemingly endless financial difficulties that Lil Wayne has encountered is it time for him to get a new accountant?

Is This How an MVP Behaves?

Cam Newton, quarterback for the Carolina Panthers, has been taking a lot of criticism for the way he abruptly ended his press conference after his team's loss on Sunday in Super Bowl 50.

He was sulking, he answered the questions quickly, and he left unexpectedly. You've probably seen the video, but here it is in case you haven't.

Yesterday, Cam commented on his actions. And he is not apologizing.


Cam Newton knows how he reacted after the Carolina Panthers lost #SB50.And he won't apologize for it.

Posted by NFL on Tuesday, February 9, 2016

To me, that's not a guy that doesn't like to lose. That's a guy who has no idea what to do when he does lose.

What do you think?

"Damn, We All Still Look Good!"

Candace Cameron Bure, Andrea Barber and Jodi Sweetin showed up on Ellen yesterday to talk about their new show, Fuller House.

The crew's back (except for the Olsen Twins) and the jokes are just as corny as they were in the original Full House.

They brought a trailer to show off - it's at roughly the 2:30 mark of the video clip.

The new series debuts on Netflix on February 26.

Let's see what the public's reaction is: have mercy, or cut it out!

Whip, Nae Nae & Dab

Over the weekend, a gymnast from UCLA got a near-perfect score on her floor exercise, helping her team win the meet.

But her routine completely captivated people all over the world.

Just watch her moves. So energetic, so joy-filled, so precise, so much fun.

She got to throw in some dance moves too, and at the end, delivered a little Dab.

Nicely done!

See Ya Later, Gator

This one goes into the Someone Tell Me Why file.

A guy in Florida was just arrested for throwing an alligator through the drive-through window at a local Wendy's.

As the story goes, he saw the three-foot-long alligator on the side of the road.

He grabbed it, but it in the bed of his pickup truck, and then drove to Wendy's.

He ordered a soft drink, then tossed the gator into the restaurant.

Someone thinks he was just trying to prank his buddy who worked there.

Prank or not, the guy's being charged with aggravated assault. Plus, unlawful possession and transportation of an alligator.

Got to hit him with the whole thing, I guess...

"Awaken! And Welcome Death!"

One of the more unusual Super Bowl commercials was the one for Death Wish Coffee.

The company won a contest where the folks at Intuit QuickBooks paid for the production and airing of a 30-second ad during the Big Game for a small business.

Total price tag: around $5 million.

That's $2 million more than Death Wish Coffee brought in last year.

They call their coffee "fiercely-caffeinated," saying it's got twice as much caffeine as an average cup of coffee.

Which is good. Because if the commercial really amps up their business, they'll be needing to stay fiercely-caffeinated.

Death Wish Coffee Company’s Big Game ad has fierce Vikings, a stormy sea, and of course, coffee. Watch it now and don’t miss it on the game Feb. 7 in the 3rd quarter! #TeamSmallBiz

"Words Are Written on the Winds"

The folks who run the Academy Awards television show really don't like it when people ramble on and on and on when making their Oscar acceptance speeches.

So over the years, they've tried all sorts of techniques to hurry things along.

Cutting off microphones, playing music, cutting to commercial - everything short of having Sylvester Stallone grab one arm and Arnold Schwarzenegger the other and carrying the winner off-stage.

This year, nominees will be asked to provide a list of the people they wish to thank, and those names will appear as an on-screen scroll as the winners speaks, meaning the names won't need to be said.

According to Time magazine, the producers said, Words are written on the winds. A screen grab of your scroll can be kept forever.”

What's more sentimental than that?

Several years ago, Jack Black and Will Ferrell got to sing the "Get Off the Stage" song at the Oscars.

Have a look - it's pretty funny.

Future Struck With $15 Million Lawsuit By Ex Ciara

Ciara accuses Future of defamation, slander, and libel in newly-filed lawsuit. Ciara files $15 million lawsuit against Future over defamation, slander, and libel claims. According to The Jasmine Brand, the issues between Ciara and Future, two artists who were once in a relationship and have a son together, have been upgraded to the legal level. The site reports that late last month Ciara filed a lawsuit against Future in a Georgia court. The singer is reportedly concerned over “false and defamatory statements” that have been made about her following the birth of their son, Future. Most recently, Future stated “this bitch got control problems,” in regards to Ciara with a tweet made on January 4 of this year. In her lawsuit, Ciara states that the Atlanta rapper has spread lies about her to promote his various, music endeavors. Additionally, she claims that Future has never paid child support. “The singer accuses her ex-fiance of lying about her publicly to increase interest and publicity for his upcoming musical endeavors, namely the release of his upcoming album and tour,” The Jasmine Brand reports. “Ciara blasts Future saying he purposefully published lies about her on his Twitter account, social media and other interviews to destroy her reputation as a good mother, to diminish her brand and to impair her professional career in the entertainment industry.” Despite Future’s claims about having to go through lawyers to see his son, the lawsuit states that Ciara has gone out of her way to ensure that the two spend time together. Future has yet to respond publicly to the $15 million lawsuit filed against him.
