Beyoncé has broken the record for the most Grammy wins of all time, with 32, having won four awards in the 2023 proceedings. The award that put her over the top was a win for best dance/electronic album for “Renaissance.” Beyoncé was on hand at the arena to accept this one, unlike earlier in the event, when she was not yet on the premises for the win that had her achieving a tie, when “Cuff It” got best R&B song and earned her win number 31.
Two of her awards were given out during the non-televised Premiere ceremony in the afternoon, and she subsequently picked two more during the prime-time telecast. The two awards announced for Beyoncé in the pre-telecast proceedings were for best dance/electronic recording for “Break My Soul” and best traditional R&B performance for “Plastic Off the Sofa” (the last two both tracks from her “Renaissance” album).

Paris Saint-Germain director Luis Campos has confirmed that the club remains in talks with Lionel Messi regarding a contract extension in France. The Ligue 1 champions have known for some time that the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner would see his current deal expire in the summer of 2023. It was always suggested that Messi would wait until after the World Cup finals in Qatar before making a decision on his future, and he returned from the Middle East expecting to put pen to paper after inspiring his country to global glory. No terms have been agreed upon as of yet, amid rumors of the iconic 35-year-old delaying discussions, but Campos insists meetings are taking place.
PSG’s sporting director has told the media: “At the moment, we are in discussions with Messi about his extension. I would like to keep him in this project; I can’t hide it. We are talking at the moment to achieve this goal, and continue to have him with us.”
