Sketches have been released of from Beyonce’s up and coming 2009 World Tour wardrobe. Though the drawings come after the “Like a Circus” singer, they have a unique flair of their own.

 Apparently Beyonce saw some of French designer Thierry Mugler’s work at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute’s “Superheroes” exhibit in May, 2008. From there Mugler signed on to be the creative advisor and costume designer of the “Diva” singer’s tour. 

The designer told WWD that the costumes are “‘the duality between being a woman and a warrior. Feminine. Free. Warrior. Fierce.”

On his blog, rising star Kid Cudi said that his first album, Man on the Moon: The Guardians, will be his last. He credits his decision to attacks and personal trials he has been given from the public and the media. He states, though, that he will still make collaborations with other artists, perform and work on an upcoming show with HBO.

For his fans, it will be a hard blow to take. Cudi has been featured in impressive names such as Complex Magazine, XXL, BBC News. Last year Rolling Stone honor him in their Top Five “Best Indie Hip-Hop” artists of 2008.  

To the fans from his blog:
