Beyonce Turned Down “Beauty And The Beast” Offer-

"Beauty and the Beast" is the highest grossing film of 2017 so far but imagine if Beyonce's name was attached to it in any form or fashion, In a recent interview with "Yahoo Entertainment," "Beauty and the Beast" director Bill Condon revealed that the superstar was offered a role in the live-action adaptation.

The "Formation" singer was apparently considered for the role of the feather duster, Plumette. She turned it down because the part was too small. Ouch.

Beyonce and Condon previously worked together on the 2006 musical "Dreamgirls."

Uranus could be bright enough to see for one night only. NASA says onlookers may be able to catch a glimpse of the blue planet with a naked eye tonight. Binoculars will do the trick, too and if you have a telescope you could see Uranus all month.  It's the seventh planet from the sun and has the third largest diameter in the solar system.
