Beyoncé has certainly caught the holiday spirit!
Or maybe she’s just found a positive way to channel her anger?
Either way, shoppers at a Walmart store in Tewksbury, Massachusetts, received quite a surprise on Friday night! Before performing at the TD Garden in Boston, Bey popped in, picked up a few toys for her 23-month-old daughter, and handed out $50 gift cards to 750 lucky customers, CBS's Boston affiliate reports.
The store manager told Us Weekly that $37,500 worth of gift cards were enclosed within envelopes that read, "Happy Holidays from Beyoncé."

The Robertson family is standing behind patriarch Phil Robertson after A&E put him on an indefinite hiatus from filming their hit show "Duck Dynasty" due to the antigay remarks he made in the January issue of GQ magazine.
In the statement issued on Thursday night, the family explained that it can't imagine continuing the show without Phil. But would the family members really walk away? The wives of the hit series sat down with "omg! Insider" co-anchor Thea Andrews back in November, before the controversy broke, and the women made it clear that the Robertson family is a united front, and they aren't afraid to pull the plug on the show if it gets between them. Korie told Thea, "If this show tears our family apart or hurts us in anyway, we want it all taken away. It's just not worth it."

It was a dream vacation gone horribly wrong. When Cherilyn McGraw of North Carolina won a trip to Australia for herself and her husband, Marine Gunnery Sgt. Brandon McGraw, 33, on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" back in January, they were supposed to be on the trip of a lifetime. Instead, it ended in tragedy last Saturday when Brandon didn't survive a skydiving jump after his parachute somehow malfunctioned. On Thursday, Ellen DeGeneres issued a statement asking for privacy for Cherilyn, "I've been speaking with Cherilyn. And my staff has been in touch with her as well. She's asked us to help keep this private as she tries to deal with this unimaginable tragedy. I hope everyone respects that." Brandon and Cherilyn's tragic accident took place at Euroa Skydive about 100 km north of Melbourne. Brandon was an experienced skydiver who was making a solo jump. He watched his wife make a tandem jump from the plane before he jumped. Ian Matthews, who works at Euroa Skydive, shared what he witnessed that day with the Daily News of Jacksonville, North Carolina, telling the local paper that Brandon had "more than a few jumps under his belt." "McGraw watched his wife do a tandem jump before exiting the plane," he noted. "He floated for three or four minutes with a good canopy … A short time before landing, he suddenly began turning his parachute dramatically to the left and right and eventually crashed into the ground." Brandon was in cardiac arrest when medics reached him on the ground. However, no cause of death has been issued yet. Media in Australia has speculated that high winds that day may have contributed to the tragedy. Brandon's death is reportedly the first fatality at Euroa since it opened in 1983; the business claims on its website that it has "the best safety record in Victoria without question!" On Monday, in a post that has since been taken down, Cherilyn shared photos from the trip and memories of her husband, writing, "My hero. My angel. These are truly such symbolic photos. He was happy and doing what he loved… I love you more than anything in the world, honey. You are the most amazing man." She continued, "I just want to say that this stupid Facebook has been my saving grace this week. I'm beyond honored and words will never be able to express my gratitude for all the love, support and prayers. You all have kept me SO strong. I am in mission mode to get us back to the USA. We cannot wait to get home. (I don't know when we'll be home and I won't be sharing when We get home so please don't ask.)" Brandon had reportedly returned recently from a tour of duty in Afghanistan. He had also served at least one tour in Iraq and was decorated with over 20 medals and ribbons for his service. The Marine Corps issued the following statement on his passing, "It is with a

Some stars will happily be flipping their calendars to 2014. Others, well, they'll always have fond memories of that one year when everything seemed to fall into place. Check out our breakdown of the celebs who were winning and those who didn't fare so well in 2013!
Winner: Jennifer Lawrence
Too bad J.Law isn't available to give an acceptance speech for landing a winning spot on our list. Every time she opens her mouth, we fall more in love with her down-to-earth, quirky personality. Lawrence was a winner at the Oscars, too, where she walked away with the Best Actress trophy for last year's "Silver Linings Playbook." She also reigned at the box office, where "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" was, as expected, a behemoth that has taken in more than $740 million globally since opening Nov. 22. Forbes estimated that Lawrence herself earned $26 million between June 2012 and June 2013, which was enough to land her at the No. 2 spot on the magazine's list of the year's highest-paid actresses, right behind Angelina Jolie. Not bad for a 23-year-old!

Ed Sheeran may be a Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, but if that ever falls through, he might have a career in matchmaking!
In an interview with omg! U.K., Sheeran, 22, opens up about how he set pal Courteney Cox, 49, up with his roommate, Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid, 37.
"I wasn't allowed to talk about this, actually, but it's just gone public so ... My housemate [Johnny], who I have lived with for a year, I introduced him to Courteney and they started dating - now they're crazy about each other," Ed explains.
Courteney and Johnny first sparked dating rumors when they were photographed leaving Jennifer Aniston's annual holiday party together.

2013 was a big year for celebrities. Miley Cyrus called off her engagement and taught America how to twerk. Kerry Washington became a bona fide TV star and got knocked up. Kim Kardashian got divorced, engaged, proved she had the worst maternity style in the history of the world, and had a baby.

Nothing says high school like a varsity letterman jacket and, apparently, the stars feel the same way!
Rihanna turned back the hands of time in November when she arrived to a New York City hotel. Donning a black-and-white jacket with her initial stamped on the chest along with a baseball hat emblazoned with the slogan "Teenage Fantasy," she actually made us think that going back to school might be a great idea!
And John Mayer sported a similar look back in October while out with girlfriend Katy Perry. The handsome crooner looked hotter than any athlete we used to know in high school and really gave Katy's song, "Teenage Dream," a new meaning.
Liv Tyler threw it back to her younger years as well, donning a varsity jacket while hailing a cab in the Big Apple.
Check out this vid to see what other A-list stars have sported the look, and tune in to "omg! Insider" on TV tonight for all the latest in entertainment news!
