Tina Knowles Took Beyoncé and Solange to Counseling as Children

May 15, 2018

Beyoncé and Solange Knowles went to counseling as young girls in order to help them deal with the popstar’s rising fame.

The singers’ mother, Tina Knowles Lawson, opened up to Maria Shriver during a Facebook discussion for the former TV reporter’s Architects of Change segment on social media Friday.

Knowles Lawson, 64, revealed her own childhood upbringing — where she felt her mother loved her brother more — affected how she raised her daughters.

“I had days that I devoted to . On Wednesdays, I took off from work and that was Solange’s day. She was a lot younger than Beyoncé and it was tough because was five years older and Beyoncé was this little superstar in our city,” Knowles Lawson said.

Despite dedicating certain days of the week to each daughter, the designer said she took extra steps in ensuring that her children had a close and supportive relationship instead of a competitive one.

“I took them to counseling so that, very early, the counselor could help Beyoncé be more sensitive to Solange,” Knowles Lawson explained. “She couldn’t stand her for a minute. You know, they were little, was all in her stuff, trying to hang around her and her friends and Beyoncé was really irritated but it made her more sensitive to who her sister was and what she had to deal with because of her.”

Beyoncé's Wings Of Desire Unveiled At The V&A

May 11, 2018

"I do love butterflies", Grammy award-winning superstar Beyoncé tells me, "but the Papillon was something special". Today her dazzling Papillon will be unveiled as a permanent exhibit at the V&A Museum, donated it as a gift from her private collection, to the William & Judith Bollinger Gallery. The ring’s glittery green mosaic-style wings, created by London jeweller Glenn Spiro using 326 tsavorites, and not surprisingly, 342 brilliant-cut diamonds, "Yes, diamond’s are always a girl’s best friend," says Beyoncé, who spends time looking for distinctive jewels because, "they remind me of a special moment".

"She and Jay-Z buy beautiful things", explains Spiro, "Not just jewellery but also art; they are collectors." The three friends were hanging out together in Los Angeles, in a suite at the Peninsular Hotel, when the subject of the V&A seeking exciting examples of contemporary jewellery cropped up. "She immediately said she’d like to donate the jewel," he says.

When he was originally imagining the design in his West End atelier (once the showroom of couturier Norman Hartnell) he fashioned the stones flat. It wasn’t until he developed a titanium spring, wrapped like a diamond-set antennae over the knuckle, that the butterfly’s wings took flight and were able to flutter in time with Beyoncé’s finger.

"This titanium setting couldn’t have been done until recently and it’s so incredibly delicate," says Richard Edgcumbe, Senior Curator of the V&A Museum, as he turns the butterfly over in his gloved hands. "Of course it's close in spirit to the quivering en tremblant jewels of the 19th-Century which also needed human agency to make the diamonds quiver and come to life. Beyoncé is a role model in so many ways that having her personal jewel will be transforming to the gallery," Edgcumbe adjusts his tie, "to be honest we’re all quite star struck at the thought of it".

Kelly Rowland Responds to Rumors Destiny's Child Is Joining OTR Tour

May 5, 2018

Destiny’s Child just had an epic reunion at Coachella last month — but according to Kelly Rowland, that doesn’t mean they’ll be joining Beyoncé and JAY-Z on tour this summer.

After rumors spread that Rowland and Michelle Williams would be joining the superstar couple for their upcoming On The Run II tour, Rowland, 37, tells PEOPLE that they aren’t true. In fact, there hasn’t even been any talk about the possibility.

“This is the first time I heard it — this morning,” Rowland told PEOPLE at Schick’s F.A.B. event in N.Y.C. on Thursday. “I was like, ‘Well, that’s news to me!’ There hasn’t been anything we discussed. She and Jay are getting ready to go on tour — I’m sad because I won’t see those babies.”

But according to the singer, the girl group is just as in sync as they were during their Destiny’s Child days. Rowland adds that while they spent days in rehearsals for their most recent reunion at Coachella, hitting the stage with Beyoncé and Williams by her side felt just like old times.

“It was long days but it was so fun. I think the best part was it felt like we were just on stage yesterday. It didn’t feel like it was years that we haven’t been together, and that’s how natural we are together as friends, as sisters.”

Beyoncé Launches New Vegan Meal-Planning App

May 4, 2018

Beyoncé delivered the performances of a lifetime from Coachella with good reason. She is in great shape, and that all started in the kitchen. She attributes her healthy eating lifestyle of going vegan and wants to share her tips with you. The pop star recently launched a vegan meal-delivery service 22 Days Nutrition which is owned by her and vegan nutritionist Marco Borges.

22 Days of Nutrition uses a matching system to connect users to plant-based meals curated by nutritionists. It allows you to customize your meals based on cooking habits, dietary needs, allergies, household size, and goals. At that point, the meals are personalized for you. The app consists of thousands of recipes ranging from breakfast to dinner and boasts that they are easy and simple to make.

After you’ve chosen what you like, you can either take your grocery list to the store or order in app. The platform has partnered with Instacart and Peapod to allow users to order their groceries online and have them shipped directly to their doorstep.

“We believe that optimum health shouldn’t be something that is reserved for a select few but is a right for all. Everyone deserves the opportunity to live their best, happiest life,” states the site.

Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival - Weekend 2

April 22, 2018

Beyoncé returned to Coachella last night for the second weekend—and her second performance as headliner. The performance wasn't streamed this time, and despite an initial announcement, SiriusXM radio's live stream didn't include her set.

Visually the show was refreshed, with Beyoncé and her 100 dancers and band members washed in shades of magenta and virtually every ensemble the singer wore was swapped out for a new look.

The set-list, however, remained untouched and she was again joined by husband Jay-Z, former Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams as well as her sister Solange Knowles. There was an extra surprise, as the singer was also joined by J. Balvin for a quick run of "Mi Gente."

Beyoncé's Coachella merchandise collection was expanded with two new items, which are now available on the Coachella Pop-Up Store website.

Beyonce's Second Coachella Weekend Performance Won't Be Streamed

April 19, 2018

Confirmed: Beychella’s second weekend won’t feature the exact same iconic set we saw before. Backup dancer Jo’Artis Mijo Ratti told Variety that the team is “switching up a couple things, so there could still be a wow factor.” The bad news: Beyoncé’s second Coachella set this weekend won’t stream on YouTube, nor are there plans to re-air it. However, members of the Beyhive can live-stream the audio for Weekend 2 on SiriusXM’s Coachella Radio.

Beyoncé & Destiny's Child Sales Soar After Coachella

April 18, 2018

Not only did Beyoncé's Coachella 2018 performance make history and shake pop culture, it also sold a ton of music. In particular, that snazzy Destiny's Child reunion where Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams harmonized with Bey to sing "Soldier," "Lose My Breath" and "Say My Name," ushered in a major bump in digital sales.

According to Nielsen, after the performance ended, digital song sales for Destiny's Child hits soared some 767% on Sunday, April 15, not even 24 hours after the group collectively wowed the crowd. The trio is marking the 20th anniversary of the chart-topping girl's group, and the sudden uptick in downloads means the ladies have not lost relevancy even though they don't often perform live together. As for Bey, though it's hard to fathom that there are some people out there who don't already own her music, she still managed to sell yet more of it. Digital song sales for Beyoncé's catalog saw a 228% increase compared to a baseline established prior to Coachella.

Beyonce, with 7,000 units sold, overall moved more units because her baseline is larger than that of Destiny's Child, which moved around 1,200 units, according to Nielsen.

Of all that music, the song "Hold Up" was the top-selling track for Beyoncé with a sales spike of 287%.

The singer's most recent album, Lemonade, hit the number 1 spot on the overall worldwide iTunes chart, as well as national charts in Brazil, Denmark and Norway. In the United States, it ascended to the fifth position.

Beyonce's Coachella Performance Broke YouTube Viewing Record

April 18, 2018

As arguably one of the best live shows of recent times, Beyoncé's Coachella performance broke a major viewing record on YouTube during its live stream on Saturday, April 14. According to a press release, this year's Coachella was reportedly the festival's biggest to date, bringing over 41 million live views from fans in 232 countries over the weekend. Beyoncé's Saturday stage show alone garnered 458K simultaneous viewers around the world, making her awe-inspiring presentation the most viewed Coachella performance of all time, as well as the most viewed live music festival ever on YouTube.

Amidst the performance, Beyoncé became the first black woman to ever headline Coachella in its nearly 20-year history, and she absolutely made it a point to use the platform to showcase all of the beauty of her roots throughout the entire history-making night. Making mention of the monumental moment, Beyoncé spoke to the audience, saying, “Thank you Coachella for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline."

Beyoncé Supports Figure Skating in Harlem

April 18, 2018

Beyoncé has amped up the visibility of her philanthropic work after her historic Coachella performance. On Monday, the singer revealed that she would be donating $100,000 of scholarship funds to HBCUs. The four schools included Xavier University, Wilberforce University, Bethune-Cookman University and Tuskegee University.

Bey is now using her activewear brand IVY PARK to help to empower young female figure skaters through the organization Figure Skating in Harlem. Through the collaboration, the young girls were gifted with product from the line to help encourage them to continue on in their sport.

FSHarlem was started by Sharon Cohen in 1997 as a means to give girls in the New York City community a space to participate. Figure skating can often times be exclusive to people of a certain class and demographics. Cohen believed that the discipline required to partake in figure skating would help to foster the tools needed to succeed in school and through college.

As a part of the campaign, the FSHarlem girls modeled the Spring line in a short film. Cohen says they were “in shock” when she revealed that they would be working for the pop star.

Beyoncé Announces Homecoming Scholars Award Program

April 16, 2018

Today, Beyoncé, through her BeyGOOD initiative, announces the four schools to receive the newly established Homecoming Scholars Award Program for the 2018-2019 academic year. The Universities, Xavier, Wilberforce, Tuskegee and Bethune-Cookman, are all Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). HBCUs are institutions of higher education in the United States that were established before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with the intention of primarily serving the African-American community.

On Saturday, April 14, Beyoncé made history at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival by becoming the first Black woman to headline in the festival's 19-year run.

The jubilant set, housed on a pyramid stage with 150-plus cast members, dutifully in-sync, was the first time the icon returned to her home, the stage, in over one year.

The show, with its homage to excellence in education, was a celebration of the homecoming weekend experience, the highest display of college pride. The energy-filled production put the spotlight on art and culture, mixing the ancient and the modern, which resonated masterfully through the marching band, performance art, choir and dance. It was the impetus to mark her second scholarship program.

Like just about everyone else, CeeLo Green is in love with Beyonce. And he's making it known this Valentine's Day.

In a new music video released Tuesday (Feb. 14) under Green's new Gnarly Davidson moniker, the Goodie Mob emcee gives Rick Springfield's classic 1980s rocker "Jessie's Girl" an update to profess his admiration of pop culture's biggest crush with "Jay Z's Girl."

The John Colombo-directed clip stars Little Fun as CeeLo's stand in, first confessing he's probably Jay Z's biggest fan before admitting his love for Hova's wife, The Queen Bey.

"Jay Z is the king," he sings, dancing around a room plastered with Beyonce posters. "And I'm probably his biggest fan/ But there's a feeling inside that I'm sure he'd understand/ I'm in love with Bey and I wanna be her man."

Always one to “cause all this conversation,” Beyoncé had fans and Grammys viewers alike buzzing about her performance Sunday night.

At the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, the expectant diva, 35, took the stage to perform her restrained Lemonade tracks “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles.” Complete with video montages, holograms, and a precariously placed chair, her 10-minute set had the audience rapt — and occasionally scratching their heads!

PEOPLE caught up with JaQuel Knight, Beyoncé’s longtime choreographer (you can thank him for that iconic “Single Ladies” wrist twist!), who opened up about how “mind-blowing” it is to work with Queen Bey, what her goddess-inspired Grammys performance meant — and if she’ll take the stage at Coachella!

How did last night’s performance come together?

We’ve been working five weeks on this, since January, and then we also just started developing the number “Love Drought” right after Tour, so the number’s been in development for a while. Read more...
Adele, Beyoncé and Maren Morris have all seen their sales surge after the Grammys – with some songs rising as much as 6,700%. The digital increase after music’s biggest night was reported by research company Nielsen.

Beyoncé did not win in the main categories despite nine Grammy nominations. She was still rewarded for an epic performance and unreserved praise from Adele.

Beyoncé’s fans responded with strong support on social media and more sales for her Lemonade album, which was up 267% on Sunday over its Friday/ Saturday average. “Formation,” nominated as both Song and Record of the year, grew by 105%. She also sung “Love Drought” (up by 1,249%) and “Sandcastles” (up 1,000%).
DJ Khaled dropped a surprise song right after the 2017 Grammy Awards!

The artist premiered his new song “Shining” on TIDAL featuring Beyonce and Jay Z.

Beyonce sings for the majority of the song while Jay raps a few verses and references having twins with his wife.

You can download the song on iTunes or listen to it on TIDAL below!

GRAMMY Award show producers are staying coy on what exactly will happen when Beyonce hits the stage on Sunday, but here's what we do know.

ET has learned that Beyonce's performance might include the singer dressed in gold and appearing on a giant turntable. The theme might be the diva's journey and evolution from child performer to superstar with actresses playing her at different stages of her life.

"Whenever she comes, she brings it," executive producer Ken Ehrlich told ET's Kevin Frazier. "Let's hope that -- if that happens -- it'll be pretty amazing."

The GRAMMY winner isn't expected to do any high-flying acrobatics or over-the-top stunts, considering that she is pregnant with twins, but Ehrlich said that her growing baby bump adds an extra glow that could make for an extra special performance.

"It's the glory of motherhood. She looks more radiant than ever," Ehrlich said. "She looks so beautiful." Read more...

Though the Grammys haven’t officially announced Beyoncé as a performer, rumors have been flying all week. And in case you spent that week under a rock, Beyoncé is also pregnant. This morning, TMZ reports the future Carter twins mean Beyoncé will be taking things slower at the Grammys than she usually does at live performances.

According to TMZ’s sources, Beyoncé is in rehearsals for a Grammys performance, but her full routine won’t be locked down until the night before the show. Her producers reportedly have a couple of strategies to fill the stage and keep the audience occupied, including an elaborate digital backdrop and guest cameos.

Beyoncé is also set to headline both weekends of Coachella in April. Yesterday, TMZ reported festival organizers haven’t communicated with Beyoncé since the pregnancy announcement, but they aren’t making alternate plans.
The concert industry’s movers and shakers gathered at The Novo in Los Angeles for the 28th annual Pollstar Concert Industry Awards on February 2. Hosted by Justin Willman, the night’s honorees represented everything from major tours, venues and clubs to booking agents, artist managers, staging, video and promotion.

Beyoncé was nominated in two categories: Major Tour of the Year and Most Creative Stage Production. She won in the second category, beating out Adele, Carrie Underwood, Coldplay and Kanye West. Congrats!
Beyoncé‘s surprise pregnancy news has set a new Instagram record.

The singer, who announced she was expecting twins with husband Jay Z on Wednesday, received 6.4 million likes and over 339,000 comments on her baby bump photo, less than eight hours after it was posted.

Within the first hour, it had over 2.4 million likes and 166,000 comments.

Queen Bey’s baby post surpasses previous record holder Selena Gomez‘s photo — of herself drinking Coca-Cola with the lyrics “You’re the Spark” from her hit song “Me & The Rhythm” on the bottle — which collected 6.3 million likes since last June.

Similarly on Twitter, the BeyHive were in a frenzy.

Within 45 minutes of Beyoncé making her pregnancy announcement, there were over half a million tweets about the baby news.

By 1:54 p.m. E.T., or within 15 minutes of the announcement, there were over 17,000 tweets sent per minute about Beyonce’s post, according to the social media platform.

In addition, “twins” was the top trend on Twitter, with “Beyonce,” “Blue” and “Beyhive” also trending.
Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising announced on Twitter that Beyonce will be one of the chairpersons for a gala at the California African American Museum in Los Angeles organized by Tina Knowles-Lawson!


Beyoncé showed her support for the post-inauguration, anti-Trump Women's March in a Facebook post. "Together with Chime for Change, we raise our voices as mothers, artists, and as activists," she wrote. The rally will take place in Washington, D.C. and other cities around the world.

Chime for Change, a global campaign Beyoncé cofounded aims to empower women and is an official partner with the Saturday's event. "As #GlobalCitizens, we can make our voices heard and turn awareness into meaningful action and positive change."

The Women's March takes place the day after Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. The march was organized in response to his misogynistic and prejudicial rhetoric he used throughout his campaign. Groups that feel attacked by Trump's derogatory remarks include: women, Mexican-Americans Muslim citizens and members and allies of the LGBTQIA community.

Artists like Katy Perry, Cher, Zendaya, Madonna and more have not only publicly supported the efforts of the Women's March but will also be in attendance at the event, which begins at 10 a.m. at the intersection of Independence Avenue and Third Street SW. At press time, there are 616 sister marches on record that will take place across the United States, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. Read more...
