INSIDER: Today's celebrity gossip from around the world
BEYONCE revealed she is “alright” after a fan tried to pull her off stage while she performed in Brazil.
The Grammy-winning songstress knelt down to be closer to fans as she sang her song Irreplaceable, and a shirtless man in the front row leant over, grabbed her and tried to yank her from the raised platform at Sao Paulo’s Morumbi Stadium.
After being rescued by security, the Run The World star reassured the crowd at the end of her performance: “It’s just some people jumping, they just got excited. It’s alright.”
Unfazed by what had happened, the 32-year-old asked the man for his name and then told him: “I love you too.”

*BEN AFFLECK has revealed he is tough enough to handle the backlash over his Batman casting.
There has been divided opinion after the announcement that the Oscar-winning actor-director will play the caped crusader in ZACK SNYDER’s Man Of Steel 2, where he would face HENRY CAVILL’s Superman.
The 41-year-old reassured US talk show host Jimmy Fallon that he can take both positive and negative feedback, joking: “I’m a big boy. If I can handle an Emmy snub, I can handle anything. I handle s***. I’m very tough.”
Ben admitted he might avoid the internet though.
“They said just don’t use the internet for a couple of days. I (went online), saw the announcement, I look down on the first comment and the first one just goes, ‘Nooooooooo!’,” recalled the father-of-three, adding: “We’re gonna be luddites for a while, kids.”
*RUSSELL BRAND is apparently dating socialite JEMIMA KHAN.
The 38-year-old comedian and the 39-year-old millionairess have been pictured strolling arm-in-arm through the streets of New York’s trendy East Village.
The Daily Mail reported they were also spotted sharing a romantic meal together in London just a week before
Russell hinted he was in a new relationship in an article he wrote for The Guardian recently.
He said: “I’m not typically immune to the allure of objectified women, but I am presently beleaguered by a nerdish, whirling dervish, and am eschewing all others.”
Since his marriage to KATY PERRY, 28, ended in 2011 after just 14 months, Russell has dated a string of women, including Spice Girl GERI HALLIWELL.
*NAOMI WATTS has revealed her mother has given her performance of PRINCESS DIANA’s “posh” accent her seal of approval.
The Oscar-nominated actress – who has a slight Australian twang from growing up in Sydney – previously revealed her British mother was concerned she would struggle to perfect her accent to play Diana, Princess of Wales in new film Diana.
Naomi revealed: “My mother’s seen it and her partner, who is quite posh himself, were impressed with the accent after all.
“She knew how tough that accent is to get.
“And what made it tough was that it wasn’t just pure stiff-upper-lip, she had a very breathy, modern sound to her voice, so it didn’t sound as posh as it can.”
*CILLIAN MURPHY has revealed he hung out in the pub in Birmingham to practise his accent for Peaky Blinders.
The Irish actor plays gangster Tommy Shelby in new BBC Two drama about 1920s gangland Birmingham.
Cillian revealed: “We had an outing to Birmingham, where we went to the original Garrison pub and we hung out with Steve >fr 1,8
“I would pester Steven, and call him on the phone. We wanted to get it right, and I think everyone’s done a brilliant job.
“ Everyone’s doing not their own accent so we were all in it together.”
*NOEL GALLAGHER has said that rumours that OASIS will reunite for a series of shows are “not true”.
The Daily Mail had reported that the High Flying Birds frontman and his younger brother LIAM GALLAGHER would put aside their differences to perform a number of gigs in 2014, to mark the 20th anniversary of their debut album Definitely Maybe.
But Noel’s spokesman told NME.com that “it’s not true”.
Noel had previously dismissed stories of a forthcoming Oasis reunion, denying he would like to reform the band.
He said on talkSPORT in August: “No, it definitely won’t happen.”
But Liam – who now fronts Beady Eye – told NME that the group had “unfinished business” and suggested that the warring brothers, who fronted the group until their split in 2009, could “bury the hatchet for a quick lap of honour” to celebrate the anniversary.
