Beyoncé Set to Perform at City of Hope Gala

September 17, 2018

It was announced today that global icon Beyoncé will perform at the City of Hope gala on October 11 in Los Angeles. This will mark her first solo performance following the successful run of the biggest tour of the summer, with JAY-Z. OTRII stadium tour started in Cardiff, UK in June and is scheduled to wrap on October 4 in Seattle, Washington.

City of Hope, a world-renowned independent research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases, is honoring Jon Platt, Chairman and CEO of Warner/Chappell Music, with its prestigious Spirit of Life® award. Platt has worked with Beyoncé since 2005.

Inspired by the guiding humanitarian principles of City of Hope and motivated by the institution's commitment to innovative medical research and compassionate patient care, a group of key industry executives founded the charity’s Music, Film and Entertainment Industry Group in 1973. In its 45-year history, the group has raised more than $118 million for City of Hope and has honored some of the most important figures in the music and entertainment industry.

The evening’s host will be producer/entertainer Pharrell Williams and JAY-Z, multi-Grammy winner/entrepreneur, will present the award to Platt.

“Beyoncé agreed to perform without a moment’s hesitation, and that wasn’t just for me,” said Jon Platt. “She wanted to be part of our celebration for the patients, doctors, scientists, and nurses who make City of Hope a place where miracles can happen. That’s what makes her a cultural icon. She’s not only a genius, in a class of her own, but she has phenomenal heart and soul, and she knows how to use them. This event is going to be one for the ages.”

Beyoncé And JAY-Z Announce A New Scholarship Program

August 26, 2018

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and Shawn "JAY-Z" Carter announce a new scholarship program that will award one exceptional senior high school student, with financial needs, 100K to put toward their enrollment in a college or university for the academic year 2018-2019. The award will serve as a dedicated university-based fund for each selected student throughout the duration of the student's enrollment.

This back to school season, students in OTRll Tour markets, who are preparing for college, will be chosen by Boys and Girls Club of America. Qualified students must demonstrate academic excellence and show financial needs that would make it hard for them to enter a college or university for the academic year 2018-2019.

The markets will include Atlanta, where the OTRll Tour plays at Mercedes Benz Stadium Saturday, August 25 and Sunday, August 26, Orlando, Miami, Arlington, New Orleans, Houston, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Clara and Seattle.

The Carters have had a long history of helping students with The Shawn Carter Foundation spearheading college tours to HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) and providing scholarships to college bound students nationwide

Beyoncé, through her BeyGOOD initiative, created the Formation Scholars Award, a merit program, in 2017 to help female students start or further their college education, and this year announced the Homecoming Scholars Award, a second merit program, opened to qualified students, regardless of gender, to enter or continue their studies at one of eight HBCUs.

OTR II show descends into chaos as dancers tackle stage invader

August 26, 2018

A Beyonce and Jay-Z concert ended in chaos on Saturday night after a stage invader managed to make to get within feet of the super stars as they walked off stage.

Video of the performance in Atlanta showed the invader casually make his way on to the stage from the audience, before rushing after the power couple; when the dancers realised what happened they rushed to the back of the stage moments to stop his tracks, before security guards also rushed the stage.

Many of the session musicians also on stage seem unaware of what is taking place below them, as they continue to perform.

In videos, shared by concertgoers at the venue, it appears that the invader is held down by security guards, however fans took to Twitter to ask where security was in the first place.

Beyoncé’s publicist Yvette Noel-Schure confirmed via Instagram that the pair are fine.

‘Beyonce and JAY-Z on stage tonight in Atlanta. Thank you to all the fans for your concern,’ she wrote on Instagram, ‘they are fine and looking forward to the show tomorrow.’

Beyoncé & JAY-Z's On the Run II Tour Surpasses $150 Million Earned

August 25, 2018

Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s On the Run II Tour tops the Hot Tours list dated Aug. 25, thanks to the latest batch of earnings reported to Billboard Boxscore for the couple's successful trek. Their placement is fueled by recent engagements in Minneapolis, Detroit, and two sold-out shows for 86,000 fans at Chicago’s Soldier Field, which totaled $21.2 million in grosses.

With the addition of these four dates, Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s co-headline trek exceeds $150 million grossed, rising to a total of $150.7 million. Across 29 shows in Europe and the U.S., total attendance has reached 1.4 million. There are 19 dates left to report to Boxscore before the tour closes on Oct. 4 at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field.

With another month and a half of dates still ahead for Beyoncé and JAY-Z, their tour is trending toward the $250 million mark. As implied by the tour’s name, it is the sequel to their original 2014 On the Run stint. The 2018 installment has already blown past its predecessor, which brought in $109.6 million.

The couple’s massive summer tour caps off a particularly fertile few years of their storied careers. They released a pair of complimentary albums, Beyoncé’s Lemonade in 2016 and JAY-Z’s 4:44 the following year. Combined, these two efforts yielded 21 entries on the Hot 100 and earned 3.5 million equivalent album units according to Nielsen Music. Together, they completed the trilogy with 2018’s Everything is Love, billed to The Carters. The joint album, released in the middle of their European leg, topped five Billboard charts dated June 30, 2018, including Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums, Top Rap Albums, and Digital Albums.

Minnesota Governor Announces Statewide 'Beyoncé and Jay-Z Day'

August 15, 2018

Minnesota Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton declared August 8th as a statewide “Beyoncé and Jay-Z Day” in anticipation of the megastar couple’s concert in Minneapolis. “Beyoncé and Jay-Z have taken home numerous awards from platforms such as the Grammy Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, BET Awards, American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and NAACP Image Awards, among others and have sold millions of records worldwide,” Dayton wrote in an official proclamation.

“Through their lives and music, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have inspired Minnesotans, and music fans around the world,” he continued.

The proclamation was signed shortly before the couple gave a joint concert at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Dayton’s announcement comes over two years after he declared May 23rd as statewide ‘Beyoncé Day’ before the 36-year-old singer gave a concert in Minneapolis in 2016. Neither one of the pair were born or raised in Minnesota, with Beyoncé from Texas while Jay-Z is from New York.

Tyler Mitchell Addresses Rumors About Beyoncé's Vogue Cover

August 15, 2018

Tyler Mitchell took to Twitter on Monday to support the claim made by Anna Wintour that her and Raul Martinez, Condé Nast’s Corporate Creative Director, were the ones responsible for hiring him for Beyoncé’s Vogue September cover.

"An article from @BoF explaining the leaks and rumors around our shoot. The truth is Raul Martinez and Anna Wintour proposed and hired me for the Vogue shoot and Beyoncé quickly agreed. https://t.co/KOQx7SgebS"

Wintour shot down reports that Bey was the only one involved with picking Mitchell, marking the first time that Vogue hired a black photographer to shoot a cover for the publication in its 126-year history. Instead, she stated the credit belongs to Martinez. "The concept and the photographer was entirely Vogue’s, specifically Raul’s," she told BoF.

Martinez says he first became aware of Mitchell after seeing his work in March’s Teen Vogue digital cover where he photographed gun control activists. When Beyoncé was presented with a list of photographers to work with for her shoot, she “immediately approved” Mitchell because of the historical implications that came with his hiring. He was also well known within Beyoncé’s inner circle after previously photographing her sister Solange.

Wintour also responded to the report that Beyoncé was given full editorial control, saying that like other big stars who grace the cover, it was more of a collaboration. As for those rumors of her departure as editor-in-chief, Wintour fired back, "I’m not going to address it, I’m not going to address it."

On The Run II Tour European Leg Grosses $87.6M

July 31, 2018

With the combined star power of Beyoncé and Jay-Z, it comes as no surprise that the first leg of the couple’s “OTR II Tour” was a wild success. Pollstar’s Boxoffice has received reports for the entire 18-night European excursion – and every single show sold out.

Presented by Live Nation Global Touring in association with Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, the stadium outing kicked off June 6 at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. That gig sold 39,731 tickets and grossed nearly $4.2 million (£3.1 million).

The European run racked up a total of 871,012 tickets sold and grossed more than $87.6 million. The average show sold 58,067 tickets and grossed more than $5.8 million, with tickets ranging in price from as low as €10 ($11.69) in Rome and Milan, Italy, to as high as €175 ($204.44) in Barcelona. The average ticket price was $100.57, which would seem a bargain to catch two of the biggest artists around.

The biggest stop of the European leg was the two-night stand at London Stadium, which sold a total of 126,443 tickets and grossed nearly $11.2 million. The London show also happened to be the location for the couple announcing the surprise release of their collaborative Everything Is Love album. The other cities that were treated to two nights of The Carters were Paris and Amsterdam.

Beyoncé Given Unprecedented Control Over Vogue's September Cover

July 31, 2018

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour gave Beyoncé unprecedented control over the cover of the upcoming September issue, sources say, and the music icon hired the first black photographer to shoot a cover in the publication’s 126-year history.

The publication is contractually obligated to give Beyoncé full control over the cover, the photos of her inside the magazine and the captions, which she has written herself and are in long-form, according to two sources who are familiar with the agreement between Vogue and Beyoncé but aren’t authorized to speak to the press.

Wintour has always exerted complete control over the fashion bible, including selecting the outfits worn by cover models. Cover subjects are usually given little to no say in their photos and are sent the cover in the week ahead of publication, a source familiar with the editorial process at the publication told HuffPost.

Beyoncé chose Tyler Mitchell, 23, to be her photographer.

“I depict black people and people of color in a really real and pure way,” Mitchell, who has already made a splash by shooting campaigns for Marc Jacobs and Givenchy, told The New York Times in December. “There is an honest gaze to my photos.”

Last month, Jay Z publicly responded to Beyoncé’s soul-baring Lemonade album with a soul-baring record of his own: 4:44. On the title track, Jay Z apologized to his wife for cheating on her. And on Monday, Jay Z released a “footnotes” video for the title song (via Tidal), during which he and several celebrity friends like Kendrick Lamar, Will Smith, and Chris Rock discuss the themes of the track. In doing so, Jay Z finds himself offering more personal details about what went wrong in his marriage.

“This is my real life,” Jay Z says, before addressing the problems that arose in his marriage. “I just ran into this place and we built this big, beautiful mansion of a relationship that wasn’t totally built on the 100 percent truth and it starts cracking. Things start happening that the public can see. Then we had to get to a point of ‘OK, tear this down and let’s start from the beginning.’ It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.”

Towards the end of the video, Jay Z remembers a time when he actually begged Beyoncé to stay with him on vacation, rather than leave, as she had previously planned.

“I was on a boat, and I had the best time,” Jay Z recalls. “I was like, ‘Man, this is great.’ Then she had to leave. . .I was, like, crushed: ‘Man, I don’t even feel like this. What is happening to my body right now? I don’t even feel like this. Did I just say. . . ‘Don’t leave’?”

In another clip from the track’s “footnotes,” Jay Z admits that he played 4:44 for Beyoncé pretty early in the recording process. And yes, that was awkward.

“We just got to a place where in order for this to work, this can’t be fake,” Jay Z explains. “Not one ounce. I’m not saying it wasn’t uncomfortable because obviously it was.”
For those of you who couldn’t get enough of Jay-Z’s 13th studio album, 4:44, good news: A physical edition of the album, out on Friday, features three bonus songs — “Blue’s Freestyle / We Family,” “MaNyfaCedGod,” and “Adnis,” all of which could be heard in the visual teasers of the album.

“Blue’s Freestyle / We Family” has a very accurate title: Not only does Blue rap on the track, but it’s also downright adorable and very, very catchy, even though her verses aren’t the easiest to understand, as Twitter has been quick to point out. Basically, 2017’s new catchphrase will probably be “boom shakalaka,” and it’s all thanks to Blue.

“MaNyfaCedGod” features James Blake and deals with Beyoncé’s forgiveness, her and Jay-Z’s reconciliation, and their On the Run Tour. The song also references a quote by Rumi, further solidifying the rumor that Hov and Beyoncé’s twins are named Rumi and Sir.

You can buy the physical edition of 4:44 on Amazon and read the full lyrics to “MaNyfaCedGod” below. Read more...
Have Beyoncé and husband JAY-Z settled on names for their new additions?

The couple’s twins, reportedly a daughter and a son, may be named Rumi and Sir Carter, according to trademark documents filed to the United States Patent and Trademark Office on Monday and obtained by PEOPLE.

Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s company has filed papers to trademark the apparent monikers for everything from fragrances and cosmetics to baby gear, tote bags and water bottles.

The name Rumi appears to be an homage to a 13th century Persian poet by that name -- and Sir happens to be referenced in one of his most famous poems:

“Bring the pure wine of
love and freedom.
But sir, a tornado is coming.
More wine, we'll teach this storm
A thing or two about whirling.”
With Jay-Z aging gracefully on his newest album, 4:44, listeners might’ve been surprised (or not) to learn that the rapper directly addressed Beyoncé’s Lemonade numerous times, confirming that he was, indeed, up to some lying and philandering while married to Bey. What’s perhaps more surprising then is that Beyoncé was heavily involved in crafting 4:44 as we know it, as revealed in a new interview with No I.D., the album’s producer. “I always call Bey our de facto A&R. Pillow talk is the strongest conversation on the planet,” he explained to the New York Times. “Every song has to get past her ears, in my eyes. She came by a lot and played a good part in helping us get over hurdles on certain records. Of course she’s genius-level with that.”

Although Jay-Z didn’t want 4:44 to solely serve as a “response” to Lemonade, No I.D. indirectly encouraged him to reference it at least once. As we know now, Jay-Z ended up referencing it quite a bit, most notably with 4:44’s title track. “We just wanted him to respond and then let it be and still touch on other things. I created that beat to box him into telling that story,” the producer explained. “We never directly spoke about that album. Mainly because if he talks about himself, it’s going to bleed into that regardless. But there’s a difference in talking about it for the sake of response and for the sake of honesty and the truth. The truth needs to explain why you are the way you are, why you did what you did. We know what happened. We got it.” And the rest is Tidal history.
Beyoncé's BEYGOOD4BURUNDI and UNICEF have joined forces to help bring safe water to the most vulnerable women and children in the "Heart of Africa." Burundi is one of the most densely populated countries in Africa with nearly half of the population lacking access to clean, safe drinking water.

With your help, nearly half a million people will gain access to safe water, as BEYGOOD4BURUNDI and UNICEF will support building water supply systems for healthcare facilities and schools, and the drilling of boreholes, wells and springs to bring safe water to districts.

Go to www.beyonce.com/beygood4burundi to find out more.

JAY-Z has used tracks on his new album to make a public apology to Beyonce for his past indiscretions.

4:44 was released exclusively to Tidal on 30 June, and fans were quick to notice how many of the lines seem to respond directly to those of Beyonce's album Lemonade.

The two artists have been married for almost 10 years, but their relationship was the subject of worldwide speculation after lyrics in Lemonade appeared to accuse JAY-Z of being unfaithful.

Many fans expected JAY-Z to respond on 4:44, and it seems they will not be disappointed.

For instance, on Beyonce's track 'Hold Up' she says: "Never had the baddest woman in the game up in your sheets."

On JAY-Z's track "Kill Jay Z" he responds with the self-critical: “You almost went Eric Benét / Let the baddest girl in the world get away."

On Beyonce's track “Pray You Catch Me" she sings: “You can taste the dishonesty / It’s all over your breath as you pass it off so cavalier."

On “Kill JAY-Z” he appears to reference an infamous altercation in a lift with Beyonce's sister Solange after the 2014 Met Gala: "You egged Solange on/Knowin’ all along, all you had to say you was wrong." Read more...
You can rest easy...Beyoncé and Jay-Z's twins have left the hospital and are finally at home, multiple sources confirm to E! News.

After remaining in the hospital for an extended period of time, a source said that Bey and the babies have left the hospital and are "doing great."

Another source confirmed to E! News that the babies looked healthy and are at home. According to the insider, Beyoncé also "looked amazing and was glowing." The mother of three also had a very mellow mood and was calm.

As The Daily Mail exclusively reported, the new mother of three has since set up house at a $400,000-a-month Malibu mansion, where she and her family are expected to stay for the remainder of the summer.

The property, which features 6.3 acre grounds, features a rose garden, tennis court, pool house and viewing deck. The property, which is referred to as La Villa Contenta, is currently on the market for $54.5 million. According to The Daily Mail, Tina Knowles was spotted visiting the compound on Sunday.
Beyoncé was the big winner Sunday at the 2017 BET Awards, taking a total of five trophies at the music-rich event in Los Angeles. She won for Female R&B/Pop Artist, Album Of The Year for Lemonade, and Viewers Choice, Video Director Of The Year and Video Of The Year for “Sorry,” the latter honor shared with Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic.”

The singer may have skipped the BET Awards, but she still delivered a message to the crowd, as she asked her protégés Chloe x Halle to read her speech after winning the Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice Award for "Sorry."

"Thank you BET for this award and your tremendous support of Lemonade. This has been a journey of love, of celebrating our culture, honoring the past, and approaching the present and future with hope and resolve," the speech began. "Thank you to my mother Tina Knowles Lawson for being my biggest, biggest teacher and consistent influence. Thank you to my entire family for so much love."

Queen Bey also gave a shout-out to her supportive fans. "My BeyHive, for riding with me. I love and appreciate you," Chloe x Halle said, reading the note. "To everyone at the show tonight, you all look so beautiful and at home, thank you and have a wonderful, wonderful night. From, Beyonce." Read more...
It's been more than a week since the Knowles-Carter twins arrived, but according to several sources, Beyoncé and the twins are still in a Los Angeles, California hospital. According to TMZ, Beyoncé's twins were reported born prematurely and were kept "under the lights." The "lights," the unnamed source told TMZ, refer to phototherapy to treat newborn jaundice, a common condition in premature babies. The condition also affects full term babies, and is rarely serious.

When preemies develop jaundice, it's due to elevated bilirubin levels in their blood. As a result, jaundiced babies' skin and the whites of their eyes appear yellow or orange. These visible signs of jaundice take anywhere from three to five days after birth to appear and are temporary, with skin color returning to normal once the bilirubin levels stabilize. To accelerate this process, babies are put under bright blue lights to help break down the bilirubin. They even get tiny little shaded goggles to wear to protect their eyes, not unlike the kind you'd see at a tanning salon.

Jaundice could certainly account for the "minor issue" with Beyoncé's twins that have kept them in the hospital since their birth on June 12. While the couple themselves have yet to confirm the twins' birth, Beyoncé's dad, Matthew Knowles, confirmed the twins' arrival via Instagram on Sunday.
Beyoncé Knowles and Shawn “Jay Z” Carter have welcomed twins in one of the most highly anticipated celebrity births, according to multiple reports Sunday.

One of those reports was granddad himself, Matthew Knowles, who blasted the news on Twitter with a Father's Day post reading “They’re here!” and “Happy Birthday to the twins!"

And sources told E! News that Beyoncé had given birth to twins in Los Angeles. On Thursday, Jay Z and Blue Ivy were together spotted at a Los Angeles area hospital. While the twins' genders have yet to be revealed, on Friday, an unidentified woman carrying a bouquet of pink, purple and blue flowers with two giant baby foot-shaped pink and blue balloons that read, "Baby Girl" and "Baby Boy, was photographed dropping off the gift at the same Los Angeles hospital that Bey's husband and 5-year-old daughter were seen at the day prior. Upon inspection, the card attached to the flowers had a visible "B+J" written on the floral envelope.

TMZ also reported that the twins had arrived, but an issue surfaced that has kept them in the hospital for nearly a week. Sources connected with the family told TMZ the twins were born Monday in a Los Angeles hospital. Reportedly, a "minor issue" surfaced, and as a result doctors do not feel comfortable releasing them. One source told TMZ Beyonce also remains at the hospital, but as far as they know she's okay. The babies are expected to be okay as well. It's unclear when everyone will be released.

The platinum couple, who recently celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary has yet to officially comment.
Beyoncé's perfume line based on her premier fragrance Heat (launched in 2010) showcases various interpretations of different fantasy orchid accords in the form of flankers. The original is based on the red vanilla orchid, Heat Rush contains the yellow tiger orchid, Heat The Mrs. Carter Show from 2013 brings the Brassia Edvah Loo orchid, Heat Kissed from 2015 features the Red Fury orchid, Heat Seduction was composed to reflect the ginger orchid, etc. The new Shimmering Heat comes out before the end of the 2017 summer and will be portraying the Blue Mystique orchid.

Shimmering Heat is inspired by the first moments on stage, when the light shines on Beyoncé while she is dressed in a sequined outfit. The composition aims to evoke this "magical" and "enchanting" atmosphere. Fresh, green, floral and chypre notes promise a difference from the previous sweet, fruity and gourmet editions of this line. The Blue Mystique orchid at the perfume’s core is surrounded with sharp pink pepper and fresh notes, and placed on a woody base of patchouli.

Top notes: pink pepper, fresh green notes, freesia
Heart: mystical blue orchid, jasmine, rose, lily of the valley
Base: patchouli, oak moss, musk, vanilla

It's still all about the Benjamins for entertainer Sean Combs, who has been named the highest-paid entertainer of 2017 by Forbes magazine.

Diddy, the veteran multi-hyphenate, earned a cool $130 million pretax in the financial magazine's 12-month scoring period and edged out singer Beyoncé for the top spot in the annual rankings.

The 47-year-old mogul's earnings hail from the sale of his Sean John clothing label, which reportedly fetched an estimated $70 million. Additionally, the Ciroc-peddling rapper-producer also banked hefty sums from his vodka partnership and the star-studded Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour, which sold out arenas across the country.

Meanwhile, Bey reportedly earned an estimated $105 million with the help of her Formation World Tour and the release of her "Lemonade" visual album.

"Harry Potter" scribe J.K. Rowling returned to the rankings in the No. 3 spot with $95 million, Toronto-bred rapper Drake earned $94 million and Real Madrid soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo earned $93 million, the magazine reported.

To calculate the Celebrity 100, Forbes evaluates front-of-the-camera talent and reported earnings from June 2016 to June 2017, basing the figures on reports from Nielsen, NPD Bookscan, Pollstar, Box Office Mojo, Songkick, D'Marie and IMDB, as well as interviews with industry insiders and sometimes the stars themselves. Fees for agents, managers and lawyers are not deducted from the totals.

Beyoncé officially has her first tour dates for 2018 set: Coachella just announced its festival dates for next year. The two-weekend music and arts festival will take place from Friday, April 13, through Sunday, April 15, and Friday April 20 through Sunday, April 22, respectively.

The "Formation" singer was originally a 2017 Coachella headliner, but after announcing that she's pregnant with twins in February, she had to cancel her appearance (despite delivering a show-stopping performance at the Grammys). To make up for her unexpected cancellation, Beyoncé signed on as a headliner for 2018.

Because of Beyoncé's move, fans who plan to attend next year's fest already know one headliner they'll get to see, which isn't typically the case with Coachella. Even with lineups being announced long after tickets go on sale, passes sell out at a rapid pace -- so with someone like Queen B confirmed for the bill, better act fast if you want to be there.

Advance tickets for Coachella 2018 will be available starting June 2 at 11 a.m. PT. For more information on tickets, click here.
The early winners for the 2017 Billboard Music Awards, announced Sunday by dick clark productions, included Beyonce with five wins: Top Female Artist, Top R&B Album ("Lemonade"), Top Touring Artist, Top R&B Artist and Top R&B Tour.

The Billboard Music Awards will be held Sunday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, where more awards will be announced. Beyonce can still win Top Billboard 200 Album ("Lemonade") and Top Artist!
Beyoncé and husband Jay Z are set to welcome twins this summer, joining their daughter Blue Ivy, 5. Buying new baby equipment shouldn't be much of a problem: Beyoncé and Jay Z are now officially a billion-dollar couple.

Per FORBES' list of America's Wealthiest Self-Made Women--released today--Beyoncé, 35, has amassed a personal fortune of $350 million. The total for Jay Z, 47, has soared to $810 million per last week's ranking of hip-hop's richest acts (he trails No. 1 Diddy by just $10 million). That brings the couple to a combined net worth of $1.16 billion and counting.

So how, exactly, did they pull it off? Ask Beyoncé, and the answer is straightforward: "I'm never satisfied," she once told FORBES. "I’ve never met anyone that works harder than me in my industry.”

Beyoncé and husband Jay Z also waded into the national debate during the 2016 presidential election, performing at a Hillary Clinton event in Ohio last November and offering vocal support. Taking on a more political tone didn't tamp down the Knowles-Carters' financial prospects; on the contrary, they seem to be only increasing in stature--both in terms of influence and wealth.

Beyoncé is the leading nominee for this year’s BET Awards, the network announced Monday morning.

The pop star, who is the most nominated and winning artist in the show’s 17-year-history, scored seven nods for her “Lemonade” — including album of the year.

The ceremony celebrates black excellence in music, film, TV, sports and philanthropy and will air live June 25 from the Microsoft Theater at 8 p.m. Eastern time.

Last year, Beyoncé’s polarizing “Formation” video took one of the night’s biggest honors, video of the year; this year, her bawdy anthem “Sorry” is up against hits from Big Sean, Migos, Bruno Mars and her sister, Solange.

She’s also nominated for collaboration (with two different songs), female R&B/pop artist and video director.
