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.”

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.."

"Apes**t" debuts the highest of the bunch on the Hot 100, at No. 13. Sparked by its official video, the song arrives with 24.1 million U.S. streams in the tracking week, as well as 20,000 downloads sold.

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.

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. Read more...
Beyonce performed during 2018 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival Weekend 1 at the Empire Polo Field on April 14, 2018 in Indio, California.

Buzz that Beyoncé will reunite with Destiny’s Child at Coachella has come and gone — but a music insider tells Page Six, “It’s on!”

“Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child are reuniting,” claims the source. “It was teased, rumored, squashed, so nothing much else was said . . . But it’s happening.”

Beyoncé’s scheduled to perform solo on Saturday.

The insider said the added surprise is “to make up for the fact she was unable to perform last year,” when pregnant.

“The girls really wanted it and felt they owed it to the fans.”
Cardi B’s big week continues. Following her “Tonight Show” takeover and “SNL” pregnancy reveal, the platinum hitmaker sat down for a candid interview with “The Breakfast Club.”

During the 45-minute conversation with Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee, and DJ Envy, the mom-to-be talked about her rumored Beyoncé collaboration:

“No. People just be making things up. It was just an idea. You know when you hear a song, people be like, ‘This would be hot if this person is on it.’ People around you just be gassing things up.”
Beyoncé and JAY-Z are ready to put their love on top during their upcoming tour, On The Run 2.

The Lemonade singer’s stepfather, Richard Lawson, popped by the PEOPLE Now studio to talk about his new 10-episode legal drama series In Contempt alongside co-stars Erica Ash and Christian Keyes, when he revealed the couple’s plans to display a more vulnerable side on stage after working hard to strengthen their marriage following publicized issues of past infidelity.

“Well, look at what they’ve been through in the last couple of years in terms of the things that they’ve confronted and the way that they’ve put it into art,” Lawson tells PEOPLE. “This is gonna be really a culmination of their growth and their ability to really confront the hard subjects and the hard issues.”

After therapy and hard work, the rap mogul, 48, revealed to David Letterman on Friday’s episode of his Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman that he and the Queen Bee, 36, are “in a better place today,” possibly because of her big heart and openness to forgive.

In the most recent Rolling Stone cover story, former White Stripes frontman Jack White revealed the existence of an unreleased version of Beyonce’s “Daddy Lessons.”

White spoke openly of his collaborations with Beyonce, saying the two were supposed to take to Saturday Night Live to perform "Don't Hurt Yourself" -- the searing cut from Lemonade that explicitly referred to Jay-Z’s infidelity, laced with White's cryptic guitar keys -- though the plan never came to fruition.

He also revealed another unreleased collab with Queen Bey, saying the singer had requested an (even more) country-inspired version of “Daddy Lessons,” citing blues musician Seasick Steve as the alternate arrangement’s inspiration. White was impressed by the request, but his version of the song remained unused on Lemonade.

JAY-Z and Beyonce are indeed touring this summer, two sources tell Billboard, despite the swift, mysterious removal of an announcement on Ticketmaster and Facebook (March 5) for their On The Run 2 tour.

A hold for the tour had been placed at a number of North American stadiums, one of the sources said.

Speculation about a Bey + Jay tour had been rampant since Feb. 22 when a fan spotted U.K. and North American landing pages for a 2018 stadium tour on Ticketmaster, which were also quickly erased after being publicized. The famous couple last toured together in 2014 for the On The Run tour and their 2018 outing is being billed as a sequel to that 19-show jaunt. Tuesday’s revelation comes via screen grab of Beyonce’s Facebook page, showing a July 30 concert in Philadelphia at Lincoln Financial Field. Once discovered, both the Ticketmaster and Facebook information was deleted.

Billboard has reached out to Live Nation but the concert promoter did not comment. Last year JAY-Z renewed his contract with Live Nation, which is likely promoting the On The Run 2 tour.

One of the delays behind the On The Run 2 tour announcement could be Beyonce's upcoming appearance at Coachella, April 14 and 21. In the past, Coachella organizer Goldenvoice has required headliner artists to hold off until after the festival to announce new tour dates.

Waiting until April 22 (the Monday after Coachella) would give her 98 days to announce, sell tickets and market the Philadelphia show, which would be shorter than the window needed for most stadium tours, but would probably be enough time since there is likely to be strong demand for the co-headlining show. There's also the possibility the leak was a planned marketing stunt to generate buzz for the event and remind fans to set aside a few dollars, especially with a busy 2018 summer taking shape with stadium jaunts for Dead and Company, Pearl Jam, Ed Sheeran and Def Leppard with Journey.
Looks like Beyonce is about to announce a tour with Jay-Z! The singer's Facebook page was updated with a new event - Beyoncé & Jay-z - On The Run 2. The concert is set to take place on July 30 at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. Tickets will be available on Ticketmaster.

Sale Dates and Times:

Public Onsale : Mon, 12 Mar 2018 at 10:00 AM
Artist/Tidal Pre-sales : Tue, 6 Mar 2018 at 10:00 AM

UPDATE: The event and Ticketmaster page have been both deleted so it looks like we'll just have to wait and see what they're planning!
Attending the Oscars may haven been the opportunity of a lifetime, but there was an even cooler and more exclusive event happening after the awards show — Beyoncé and Jay-Z threw an afterparty at the Chateau Marmont in L.A.

The party was to celebrate singer Mary J. Blige, who was nominated for two Academy Awards — as Best Supporting Actress in Mudbound, as well as for her song from the movie, “Mighty River.” (She’s the first person ever to earn an Oscar nomination for both an acting performance and an original song in the same film.)

The event was held in the underground garage of the hotel on Sunset Boulevard and an insider tells Us Weekly that security was already tight hours before the soiree kicked off on Sunday, March 4.

“The underground garage of the Chateau Marmont has been transformed into a very classy, old-school Hollywood glamor lounge,” the insider says. “There was a huge crystal chandelier hanging from the center of the garage. Black carpet has been laid down with white booths set against the wall to give guests plenty of room to dance. There was also a classic two-door coupe sports car in the center of the room.”

The insider tells Us that guests at the party, which started at about 11:30 p.m., entered and exited the celebration via a walkway that has been shielded with blackout curtains.

“They already blocked off the driveway,” a second source told Us before the event. “A lot of hotel guests are mad.”

The music power couple hosted 150 guests at the bash and the invite said, “No sitting, you have to be up and dancing.”
Beyoncé is going vegan (again!) to get performance ready for Coachella 2018.

The singer, who is taking to the Coachella stage in April, announced on Facebook Friday that she is returning to her 22 Days Nutrition plan in preparation.

“We have 44 days until Coachella!! Vegan Time!! Click the link to join me!! Mealplanner.22daysnutrition.com” Beyoncé captioned a photo of her fancy avocado toast as part of the plant-based food challenge which she co-founded in 2015.

Queen Bey also shared the first sneak peeks inside her Coachella rehearsals.

The newly released Documentary "Girls Tyme - Making a Child of Destiny (The Andretta Tillman Story)," shares never before seen interviews from key people who influenced Beyoncé and Destiny's Child on their rise to fame. The documentary includes clips of rare unseen performance footage of the Flawless star and the rest of her Girls Tyme crew.

Produced from largely previously unreleased footage and personal interviews, the documentary examines Andretta Tillman's life as the driving force in launching Queen Beyoncé and Destiny's Child's legendary careers, as well as many other Houstonian artists, who also rose to fame under Andretta's management.

"We felt an obligation to show the world the true impact of Andretta's irreplaceable contribution to the success of Queen Bey and her Destiny's Child band mates. We opened the vault of Andretta Tillman's estate to provide the viewer with an understanding that, what you see Beyoncé and Destiny's Child doing on stage today, was rooted in them through Andretta's irreplaceable influence and tutelage, from way back in the early 1990's as young ladies in Girls Tyme. Where they are today, is a direct result of the solid foundation Andretta Tillman taught them." cited Executive Producer of the documentary, Brian "Kenny" Moore (from whose book the documentary evolved).

"We at Dousic are delighted to have secured a partnership with Amazon to ensure the documentary reaches the masses. We are giving Beyoncé and Destiny's Child fans an up-close look at the excitement, distresses and sacrifices made to elevate the band to stardom, by revealing the hidden part of their story of Andretta's enormous contribution and sacrifice that has not been told, or has hitherto been omitted," said Michael Ferguson, Executive VP of Dousic Media Group.

The documentary features interviews with Gospel great Kathy Taylor, Original Girls Tyme/Destiny's Child members Nina and Niki Taylor. Former Co-manager Kenny Moore, Hip Hop Producer Cory Mo, Former Rap a Lot recording group Flajj, Destiny's Child first choreographer Harlon Bell, and members of Andretta Tillman's family.
