Beyoncé wowed a crowd of about 18,000 people last night in LA at the Staples Center during her most recent Mrs. Carter Show tour stop — and that crowd happened to include plenty of famous fans. We spotted many celebrity couples in the boohoo VIP lounge, including Kate Mara and Max Minghella, who sipped champagne together in a corner booth, as well as Zoe Saldana, who attended with her new husband, Marco Perego, and her sister. Several stars also rolled to the show solo or with friends, including Molly Sims, Victoria Justice, and Kellan Lutz, and a couple of lucky ones had the chance to attend a meet-and-greet with the star after her show. Jessica Alba met Beyoncé backstage with a group of female friends and tagged their photo #queenb #beauty.
Beyoncé's dynamic show included more than a half-dozen costume changes and a set list full of her biggest hits, including "Single Ladies" and "Baby Boy." The singer also worked in a cover, announcing to the crowd: "I dedicate this song to Paul Walker" just before launching into a rendition of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You." Beyoncé's performance landed on the eve her husband Jay-Z's 44th birthday. The couple, along with their daughter, Blue Ivy, are in LA not only for her tour, but also for Jay's. He'll follow Beyoncé on the Staples stage next Monday for the LA date on his Magna Carta tour. The rapper is also reportedly thinking about new beginnings as he embarks on another year. Jay Z and Beyoncé are going vegan — at least temporarily — which he announced on his blog yesterday. Jay said a friend inspired him to try the new approach to eating and that the effort was not just physical. "There's something spiritual to me about it being my 44th birthday," he wrote, "and the serendipity behind the number of days in this challenge; 22 (2+2=4) coupled with the fact that the challenge ends on Christmas Day . . . It just feels right!"
There will be 44 candles on a dairy-free cake tonight for Jay Z! Jay, whose birthday is today, announced that in the run-up to Christmas, both he and wife Beyoncé are trying out veganism for 22 days. We have the latest on what the Carter-Knowles family has been up to, including the scoop on Beyoncé's star-studded LA show last night!

The blond bombshell is back! Jessica Simpson showed of her svelte postbaby figure when she made an appearance at the Footwear News Achievement Awards in NYC on Tuesday night. She is currently in the Big Apple with her husband, Eric Johnson, who escorted her to the bash but skipped the red carpet. The multitalented star has been open about her weightloss journey after she gave birth to her second child, Ace, five months ago. Jessica signed up as a spokeswoman for Weight Watchers when she gave birth to daughter Maxwell last year, but she gained back the weight she lost after welcoming Maxwell into the world when she got pregnant with Ace. Now, it seems she is back to her prebaby body and has spent the past month working on her new ad campaign for Weight Watchers. Back in November, Jessica shared a behind-the-scenes shot from her new ad campaign, where she looked slim in a tight white blouse and jeans. "Couldn't stop smiling on the set of my new Weight Watchers campaign today," Jessica wrote.
In October, Jessica revealed that she was "more confident" about losing her weight this time around. "With Maxwell, I vegged out and kind of took it like a vacation," she explained. "With Ace, I was really active, going out for walks and watching what I ate. Even though I didn't feel very good, I had a healthier pregnancy."

David Beckham had his wife, Victoria, and three sons, Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz, by his side at the world premiere of The Class of '92 in London on Sunday. The littlest Beckham, Harper, was absent on the red carpet, but there were plenty of other friends and fans out to show their support. The Beckham family's longtime pal Gordon Ramsey brought his son Jack while the boys of One Direction attended the film's premiere as well. David is one of the subjects of the documentary, which follows the careers of six players, including Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, and Paul Scholes, from the Manchester United soccer club. David and his sons all wore red ribbons on their suits in support of World Aids Day, while Victoria tweeted about the cause.
Even Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got in on those Black Friday deals! The couple had the look of love while doing a bit of shopping in Miami, FL, yesterday. They were photographed checking out clothes and jewelry at The Webster and stayed close as they made their way out of the boutique — Kanye had his arm around Kim's waist and planted a sweet kiss on her head between laughs. After their daytime outing, the newly engaged pair headed to the AmericanAirlines Arena for Kanye's Yeezus tour stop, but not before snapping a quick bathroom selfie before Kanye hit the stage.
Kim appeared to have a blast during her trip to Miami, despite being sad about spending Thanksgiving away from her family. She shared more photos on Instagram, posed with a group of friends including one with Jonathan Cheban and former NBA player Scottie Pippen and wife Larsa, saying, "Being away from home for the holidays is hard but I'm so thankful for family & friends like this! I love you guys!"
