Beyoncé will be slowing down & will ‘take a break’ in 2010 & Usher’s stuff stolen!

The Carters with birthday girl, Angie Martinez (R) at Quo Nightclub in New York City, Sunday night

That Beyonce is hard working is no secret! Her “I Am … Tour” alone, took her on a grueling tour of 110 cities around the world! Bey also planned and threw a lavish 40th birthday party for her husband, Jay Z in the midst of 10 Grammy nods! She even worked during the holidays; her recent performance at a private New Year’s Eve party hosted by Muatsim-Billah Gaddafi, son of Moammar Gaddafi, the leader of Libya sparked some controversy.

Her management was quick to dead that with the statement, “The party in St. Bart’s on New Year’s Eve, with Beyoncé in performance, was hosted by Muatsim-Billah Gaddafi, not his brother Moutassim Bilal “Hannibal” Gaddafi, as reported in the press. Her agents and management firm made the decision to confirm the private performance. The annual party had a long history of booking internationally known artists both American and foreign for events around the world, including Cannes. Past performers in St. Bart’s have included Timbaland, Enrique Iglesias and Mariah Carey. Guests at this year’s party included singer Usher, former BET CEO Bob Johnson, actress Lindsay Lohan and music industry vets, Russell Simmons, Kevin Liles and L.A. Reid.

So her 2010 new year’s resolution?…”it’s definitely time to take a break, to recharge my batteries,” says Beyoncé, 28. “I’d like to take about six months and not go into the studio. I need to just live life, to be inspired by things again.”

So what does vacay mean for Bey? “I wrote out a contract with myself. I made a list of everything I want to do that has nothing to do with music. Well, some of it does. But I promised myself that I would not go back on tour or in the studio until I finished these things”…

The to-do list consists of “random things. I want to go to restaurants, maybe take a class, see some movies and Broadway shows.” (Beyoncé says she would love to do a stage musical, eventually.) She’s also keen to spend more time with her 5-year-old nephew, Daniel, whose mom is Beyoncé’s younger sister, Solange, 23. “He’s a wonderful kid, amazing, so smart. And I spoil him, so it’s a lot of work. He’s a 24-hour job.

So for you Beyonce fans, no album from her this year! Sowwy…

…your boy Ursh had some jewelery, electronics & clothing (reportedly worth over $1 million) stolen from his GMC Yukon in Atlanta…here is the video of the reported theft!
