Abercrombie & Fitch Co. has sued singer Beyonce Knowles, saying her plan for a fragrance named after her alter ego Sasha Fierce violates the teen clothing retailer's trademark. The chain, which has sold a men's fragrance called Fierce since 2002, wants a court to order Knowles to abandon the plan. Abercrombie has held a trademark for the word "fierce" since 2003, according to the lawsuit it filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Columbus, Ohio. A publicist and an attorney for Knowles did not immediately return e-mails and a call seeking comment.

In the press release for her ambitious, somewhat befuddling double album -- the deluxe edition, with extra tracks, is currently streaming on her MySpace page -- Beyonce Knowles discusses her newly revealed alter ego, Sasha Fierce. "She's the party girl, she's Bootylicious," says the singer-songwriter-movie star-mogulista. "She is but I'm not. She's my alter ego. I'm finally revealing who I am." The contradiction built into that brief comment says much about Beyonce's artistic predicament.

Destiny's Child -- the pop group's name suggests the favor of fate and birthright, and there's never been a doubt about which member is the designated child of destiny. In Destiny's Child, Beyonce Knowles is supreme in the way Diana Ross once was a Supreme.

Beyoncé Knowles made a dramatic misstep when she fell face-first down a flight of stairs during a concert. Ever the stage professional, she got right up and continued her performance as if nothing had happened. The 25-year-old singer -- flipping her hair dramatically and wearing a long red trench coat and high heels -- was performing her song "Ring the Alarm" during a concert Tuesday in Orlando, Fla., when she tripped and stumbled down several stairs.

Two news items chased Beyonce into the Honda Center in Anaheim Saturday, when she finally brought her latest world tour to the Southland after four months on the road. One had the singer earning the top spot on Forbes magazine's "young rich list" as the highest-earning celebrity under 30. The other, more gossipy story involved a rumor that she has banned photographers from shooting her from certain angles during her show, because she sweats too much.

When Beyonce was growing up in Houston, she wanted designer jeans like every other kid in America. But her mother, Tina Knowles, wouldn't have it. She said, "Wear your own name on your butt." "I was mad at her for a long time," Beyonce said in her dressing room at Staples Center last weekend, where she was curling her hair before the Destiny's Child concert. "She got us puff paint, glitter and rhinestones and said, 'Make it special yourself.' But she taught us to have our own identity."

Beyonce is a married lady now, but she's still all caught up in the drama of love's first glances and final door slams. It's refreshing that she's staying in character: When artists such as Mary J. Blige start making music about how happy they are with their chubby hubbies, it might be sincere, but it also serves the function of feeding the tabloids. Beyonce and her Hova (spouse Jay-Z's nickname) always have kept business and pleasure separate, which imparts dignity to their relationship and lets her be an artist first, a personality second.
