Beyoncé Is Reportedly Filming a Music Video at the Colosseum

July 18, 2018

Apparently shutting down one epicenter of cultural history was not enough for Beyoncé, because she is now reportedly trying to film something at the Colosseum. You know, the ancient Roman landmark where gladiators once dueled to the death some 2,000 years ago? Yep, that Colosseum.

According to Italian newspaper Il Messaggero, Beyoncé has put in a request to film something at the Colosseum (it's not yet clear what). She initially requested to book the amphitheater on July 7 and July 8, when she and Jay-Z were in town for their On the Run II tour, but was reportedly rejected by Italy’s Ministry of Cultural Heritage because Italian scientist Alberto Angela already had it reserved. Il Messaggero also notes her request was too last minute, as the Colosseum is “a very complicated place.” (Closing down the Louvre to shoot "Apes--t," on the other hand? A total breeze.)

But Beyoncé, being Beyoncé, is not ready to throw in the towel, and has reportedly resubmitted her request, which is currently under review.

It's worth mentioning she has filmed at the Colosseum before (remember that Pepsi commercial with Britney Spears and Pink?), so if the timing is right, it seems like things will be a go. Block out your Saturday nights for another surprise!

Beyonce and Jay-Z are throwing a World Cup viewing party

July 11, 2018

Beyonce is not about to be upstaged by a soccer game, even if it is the World Cup.

When France advanced to the World Cup final with a 1-0 victory over Belgium in Tuesday's semifinal, the win presented a potential challenge for Beyonce and Jay-Z, who are scheduled to perform their On The Run II tour in Paris the same day as the final match, July 15.

Instead of forcing their French fans to choose between a historic soccer match and a historic live show, Beyonce and Jay-Z announced Wednesday that they will host a World Cup viewing party at their Paris concert. Starting at 5 p.m, the match will play on the giant screen at the Stade de France stadium, with Bey and Jay performing later in the evening.

France will play the winner of Wednesday's semifinal game between Croatia and England.

Tickets are available for the doubleheader here.

Beyoncé Is Collaborating With Balmain on a Charitable Capsule Collection

July 11, 2018

Just before Coachella was rechristened Beychella, Beyoncé Knowles and Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing had an idea. It happened in a rehearsal, while Beyoncé and her dancers were practicing in their Balmain-made looks inspired by the marching band uniforms of America’s historically black colleges and universities. “When she saw all the dancers loving the outfit—and she was loving her own outfit—she realized that what we were creating on stage for her, for all the dancers, was something really impactful,” says Rousteing. It clicked: Why not make a Beyoncé x Balmain collaboration that could make those poignant graphics available to all of Bey’s fans clamoring for a piece of history?

On Friday, July 13, Balmain will launch a three-piece Balmain x Beyoncé collection in its Paris flagship, with the items going on sale on balmain.com and beyonce.com the following day. Comprised of the yellow and pink sweatshirts Beyoncé wore on stage at Coachella, the collection also includes a black tee with the same sorority-inspired graphic.

“I worked really long with her on the Beychella moments, and the fact that we can release this collaboration that is based on our creativity, Beyoncé and I, is really a big, big step for fashion and music together,” continues the designer. “Beyoncé, she’s such a perfectionist; she’s someone that is so strong and has such a great point of view. She’s about feminism, empowering women, and the idea of bringing that collaboration where we can share the same ideas, the same vision of music, the same vision of fashion, the same vision of what is going on in the world, it’s more than just clothes. It’s a strong message, and I’m really proud to be a part of that.”

Beyonce & Jay-Z to Headline Global Citizen Festival

Mandela died in 2013.

Others performing at the festival include Usher, Eddie Vedder, a joint set from Pharrell Williams and Coldplay’s Chris Martin, and African artists including Wizkid, Cassper Nyovest and Femi Kuti.

Louvre creates new Beyonce and Jay-Z art tour

July 4, 2018

The Louvre has dedicated a new art tour to Beyonce and Jay-Z after pop's biggest power couple shot the video for their latest hit in the Paris museum. The R'n'B stars' hit song "Apeshit" -- which used some of the museum's greatest masterpieces as backdrops -- has been viewed 56 million times on YouTube alone since it was released a fortnight ago.

Now the Louvre, which already has a tour based on the US rapper will.i.am's hit "Smile Mona Lisa", has created another based on the Carters' night in the museum.

It follows the video through 17 paintings and sculptures which feature in the six-minute clip, going from the monumental white Greek marble "Nike of Samothrace" to Marie Benoist's "Portrait of a Negress".

The choice of works which they used or posed in front of has been taken as a celebration of black bodies and empowerment in an institution which was built on the spoils of conquest and imperialism.

"Portrait of a Negress" was painted in 1800, six years after revolutionary France had abolished slavery in its Caribbean colonies only for Napoleon to reinstate it two years later.

But perhaps the most striking image is of Beyonce at the centre of a line of black dancers in front of David's "The Coronation of Napoleon I and the Crowning of the Empress Josephine" singing, "I can't believe we made it.."

OTR II Tour Architect Reveals New Content Will Be Added To The Show

June 20, 2018

Nobody does a stadium show like Beyoncé. Back in 2016, when she was touring Lemonade, she took with her a 60-foot “monolith” to project mountainous videos at her audience – it was so big that some venues had to reduce the size of the audience in order to fit the stage. This time around, for her second On The Run tour with Jay-Z, the dynamic stage feels lighter – but it provides a number of “oh shit!” moments (not only when the couple end their show by dropping a new album, as they did on Saturday June 16 in London).

The stage is mainly constructed of two catwalks, which Bey and Jay use to perform independently of one another; at the end of the show, a giant bridge connects the two, floating over the audience as it does so. More impressive than this is the backdrop of the stage, which is dominated by two giant video screens (each of which, designer Ric Lipson tells me, is the size of “a London street”). At various points in the show, these screens split open, to reveal a four-storey structure, on which figures dance, play instruments, and sometimes create a silhouetted tableau. It’s reminiscent of the thrum of vibrant energy that Bey brought with her to this year’s Coachella performances, where she chose to perform in front of college-style bleachers packed with 120 dancers and instrumentalists, rather than the screens that usually dominate massive arena pop shows.

The show was brought to life by Stufish, a London-based entertainment architectural firm who also worked on the stage that was used for Beychella (as well as having a storied history producing shows for Lady Gaga, Queen, and U2). Dazed spoke to Stufish architect Ric Lipson about how the stage design reflected Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s narrative of forgiveness and reconciliation, why Beyoncé altered the design to accommodate a huge band, and how the show may change as it keeps travelling.

Beyonce and Jay-Z add new album to streaming services and iTunes

June 18, 2018

Beyoncé and Jay-Z have added their brand new collaborative album to major streaming services and iTunes.

Originally a timed exclusive to TIDAL, Everything Is Love, featuring the new single APES**T, is now available across Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer, while it is now available to download for the first time on iTunes and Amazon.

Everything Is Love was revealed following The Carters' final On The Run II UK tour performance at London Stadium, London. The video to APES**T was played to the audience in full to close the show.

Everything Is Love is nine tracks long, and features uncredited vocals from Pharrell, Ty Dolla $ign, plus Quavo and Offset of Migos. One more track Salud! - billed as a non-album promotional song - remains exclusive to TIDAL.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z drop joint album 'Everything Is Love'

June 17, 2018


A joint Beyoncé-Jay-Z album has finally dropped after years of rumors. Titled "Everything Is Love," the announcement was made by Tidal, the streaming company owned by Jay-Z. It features nine tracks, each credited to Beyoncé and Jay-Z — or The Carters — and clocks in at just under 40 minutes.

The album, unusually brief for both artists, sent fans scrambling to sign up for Tidal, a subscription-based music streaming service started by Jay-Z and other artists. That's where they could find the bonus track called "Salud" that the duo presumably felt didn't fit with the album's sequence.

According to unofficial credits, the album features production from Pharrell Williams (two tracks, "Nice" and "Apes---"), Cool & Dre, Boi-1Da, Vory, Jahaan Sweet and Sevn Thomas, and guest spots from Migos ("Apes---") and Pharrell.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z renew wedding vows

June 13, 2018

Forget the princess bride; Beyoncé was a queen at her and Jay-Z's vow renewal ceremony.

The couple recently kicked off their On the Run II tour and their concerts have featured personal videos. While Jay-Z's "Young Forever" is played, the audience is shown footage of the couple dressed up in white at a vow renewal ceremony with their three kids, with now-11-month-old twins Rumi and Sir front and center. Their grandma Tina Knowles Lawson posted a screenshot from the footage on her Instagram page.

Bey wore the Galia Lahav Thelma Victorian wedding dress, which retails for more than $15,000, to the vow renewal ceremony. The Israeli designer's team expressed excitement about her choice after the footage came out.

"YES, IT HAPPENED! Queen B has worn our dress to her vow renewal with her husband Jay-Z and we couldn't be more ecstatic about it!" read a post published on Galia Lahav's website. "This is a dream come true to be able to dress Miss Beyoncé herself on such a major event in her life. A moment so special we wanted to share it with you all!"

The gown off-the-shoulder gown pays homage to Queen Victoria's wedding look. It is made up of a corset bodice adorned with Swarovski crystals and pearls, a sheer back made of blush-colored chantilly lace over a shimmery background, multiple sheer cut-outs, sheer drape silk tulle sleeves and a detachable ivory Victorian bustle train made of silk organza and featuring a big vintage lace medallion in the center.

"We are grateful to have given this opportunity to work with such an icon and we can't wait until the next time we'll see Beyoncé in Galia Lahav," the designer's team wrote.

Tiffany Haddish Finally Reveals Who Bit Beyonce

June 13, 2018

One of the most profoundly unsettling mysteries of our time has finally been solved: Tiffany Haddish has revealed exactly who bit Beyoncé that fateful night last December, a story she recounted in GQ in March. As rumored, actress Sanaa Lathan is the alleged culprit, Haddish confirmed today, ending at least one national nightmare in which a Beyoncé biter moved through our midst anonymously.

A recap of the supposed offense: at a party for Jay-Z's 4:44 album, Haddish said she witnessed "this actress there that’s just, like, doing the mostest,” aka, unfathomably, “She bit Beyoncé in the face . . . so Beyoncé stormed away, went up to Jay Z, and was like, ‘Jay! Come here! This bitch—’ and snatched him," Haddish recounted. "They went to the back of the room. I was like, ‘What just happened?’ And Beyoncé’s friend walked up and was like, ‘Can you believe this bitch just bit Beyoncé?’”

At the time, Haddish said, Beyoncé asked her to chill: “Beyoncé and Jay Z walked by me, and I tapped Beyoncé,” at which point she told B, “I’m going to beat somebody ass at your party. I just want to let you know that.” Beyoncé asked her to “have fun” instead, but not before they had a final conversation about the incident. “Near the end of the party . . . Beyoncé’s at the bar, so I said to Beyoncé, ‘Did she really bite you?’ She was like, ‘Yeah.’ I was like, ‘She gonna get her ass beat tonight.’" At that point Beyoncé offered her own reasoning for the alleged nibbling: "She was like, ‘Tiffany, no. Don’t do that. That bitch is on drugs. She not even drunk. The bitch is on drugs. She not like that all the time. Just chill.’”

Beyonce showers Scotland's sick kids with gifts

June 13, 2018

Superstar Beyonce has showered gifts on some of Scotland’s sick kids through a charity campaigner who devotes his life to making children’s dreams come true.

Queen Bey and husband Jay-Z wowed thousands of fans at Hampden on Saturday night during their On the Run II world tour.

And the music icon decided she wanted to give something back to charities in Glasgow.

One was the John O’Byrne Foundation, who aim to put the smiles back on sick children’s faces.

The foundation were gifted eight pairs of specially-made shoes for Beyonce’s dance crew.

The donation also included a stunning crib for a baby, which John plans to give to a family in need.

John O’Bryne, who battles brittle bone disease, started the charity four years ago with £50.

He had three children at the gig on Saturday with their parents and will give each kid a pair of the shoes. He also plans to give a pair to a child who was too sick to make the concert.

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!

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...

Congratulations!
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!
