GOSSIP 2 GO 12/14..QUICK BITESBEYONCE'S APPETITE FOR LOVE
I have no wedding plans, Beyonce told AP Television News last weekend, denying recent rumors that a possible 2006 trip to the altar with boyfriend Jay-Z was in the works for next year.
No, I'm not rushing," she continued. "I'm 24 years old!"
Beyonce spoke with reporters Sunday at the Los Angeles-area Lakewood Robinsons-May store as a crowd of about 3,000 came out to see the singer plug her second signature fragrance, Tommy Hilfiger's True Star Gold.
"I had True Star originally," she said. "And it was a reflection of my true self, of Beyonce. It was really private, and not overbearing. And this is True Star Gold. Gold is my favorite color, and it, basically, is a reflection of 'Sasha,' who is my personality on the stage. You can see in all the ads: I have the hair blowin', the fierce makeup, the smoky eyes, the mic. It's more sexy. It's more outgoing. It's the type of fragrance you would wear if you had a hot date or you're going out, having a 'Sex and the City' night with your girlfriends."
But back to the Jay-Z wedding rumors. The former Destiny's Child member was asked why these recent reports of a wedding were so widespread all of a sudden.
"They've been saying it about every celebrity forever," she replied, shaking her head. "It's not personal. They just do it to everyone.'
Meanwhile, Beyonce says she’s looking forward to spending the holidays chowing down on her mama's good cooking.
'I'm trying to watch my weight because I know when I get home I'm gonna probably gain five pounds, because I'm gonna eat that food five days in a row," she laughs. "I always eat it for a week after she cooks it. I can't wait."

"She said she was extremely disappointed by Essence. She would expect this behavior from a tabloid, not a magazine that is supposed to celebrate black women," said a source.
