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.
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.
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.
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.
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 and Jay-Z kicked off their 'On the Run II' tour at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales on Wednesday. After the show, the singer thanked the fans on Facebook: "Cardiff! Thanks for helping us kick off OTR II!". See the full setlist of the concert and merchandise under the cut.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z have teamed up with two of the world's most prestigious youth-focused initiatives, The Prince's Trust and Global Citizen, to reward fans for being kind, charitable and doing good for others. Fans who volunteer through these organizations will be given the opportunity to win a pair of tickets to the United Kingdom and European dates on the OTR all stadium tour.
The BeyGOOD/DoGood campaign kicks off in the UK on June 6 in Cardiff, Wales, with The Prince's Trust, the youth charity founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1976, to help change young lives. Beyoncé also partnered with The Prince's Trust in 2014 during her solo Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.
Global Citizen continues the campaign in Europe starting on June 19 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. First launched in 2012, Global Citizen is an international advocacy organization working to end extreme poverty by 2030. In addition to performing twice at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park, in New York City, Beyoncé has joined forces with Global Citizen through Gucci's CHIME FOR CHANGE with a focus on social issues faced by women and girls globally.
"The united efforts of BeyGOOD/DoGood, along with our amazing partners The Prince's Trust and Global Citizen, are calling upon you to lift your voices, lend your hands and share your creativity as active and positive forces for doing good," states Ivy McGregor, Director of Philanthropy (BeyGOOD) and Corporate Relations for Parkwood Entertainment. "Wherever you are and whatever skills, talents and resources you possess, are of value to others in your community, country and across the globe."
Next month, Beyoncé and JAY-Z will kick off their On The Run II tour in Europe before touching down in the U.S. in July. While no guest openers have been announced for the European leg of the tour, Bey's mentees, Chloe x Halle, and DJ Khaled announced Thursday (May 31) on Twitter that they'll be joining the power couple for the North American jaunt.
"We will be opening for the North American leg of On the Run II. That's right, the kids are on the run, too," said Chloe, who could barely contain her excitement, in a short video posted to the duo's Twitter. Halle added, "We are so very excited for this family reunion of Parkwood and Roc Nation. We cannot wait to join the North American leg of this tour; we cannot wait to see your beautiful faces and we're so thankful to Beyoncé and to JAY-Z and we just know that this is going to be an epic reunion."
DJ Khaled followed suit and shared the On the Run II promo flyer on Twitter, writing, "Hitting the road with @S_C_ and @Beyonce in North America for the #OTR2 tour!!"
The North American leg of the upcoming tour will begin July 25 in Cleveland, Ohio. From there, Bey, Hov and their guests will make stops in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Buffalo, Miami, Atlanta and more before ending the tour in Vancouver on October 2.

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.”
"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".
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 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.

Ed Sheeran and Beyoncé's "Perfect" crowns the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Dec. 23), fueled in large part by the first full week of sales for its new duet version.
"Perfect," released on Atlantic Records (and the 1,069th No. 1 in the Hot 100's history, which dates to its Aug. 4, 1958, launch), was first released as a solo song by Sheeran on his album ÷ (Divide), which debuted atop the Billboard 200 dated March 25. On Nov. 30, at 7 p.m. ET, the new duet version was released, hours before the end of the sales and streaming tracking week. In its first full tracking week, ending Dec. 7, the song sold 181,000 downloads, up 202 percent, according to Nielsen Music, as it spends a second week at No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart.
Plus, as the duet version accounts for 63 percent of the song's total sales for the week, Beyoncé has been added on the Hot 100 (and related charts) as a co-lead artist on "Perfect." (For chart purposes, both versions of "Perfect" contribute to the song's singular listing on the Hot 100.)
"Perfect" flies 11-3 on the Streaming Songs chart with 34.9 million U.S. streams, up 87 percent, in the tracking week ending Dec. 7, while, on Radio Songs, it pushes 4-3 (102 million in audience, up 14 percent, in the week ending Dec. 10). Read more...
Ed Sheeran and Beyoncé's "Perfect" could top next week's Billboard Hot 100 (dated Dec. 23), fueled most heavily by a hefty first full week of sales for its new duet version.
On this week's Hot 100 (dated Dec. 16), "Perfect" pushes from No. 5 to a new No. 3 high, aided by a partial first day of impact from the new version. It ranks below Post Malone's "Rockstar," featuring 21 Savage, at No. 1 for an eighth week, and Camila Cabello's "Havana," featuring Young Thug, at its No. 2 peak for a fifth frame.
Highlights of next week's Hot 100, which blends streaming, airplay and sales data, according to Nielsen Music, will post on Billboard.com Monday (Dec. 11).
"Perfect" was first released as a solo song by Sheeran on his album ÷ (Divide), which debuted atop the Billboard 200 dated March 25. Last Thursday, Nov. 30, at 7 p.m. ET, the new duet version was released, hours before the end of the sales and streaming tracking week. In the tracking week ending tonight, Dec. 7, the song should sell 160,000 or more downloads, according to preliminary data. Such a sum could be enough to propel "Perfect" past "Rockstar" and crown the Hot 100.
For chart purposes, both versions of "Perfect" will contribute to the song's singular listing on the Hot 100. Additionally, following the first full week of tracking for the duet version, which could account for two-thirds of the song's sales in the week, Beyoncé will be added on the Hot 100 as a credited artist on "Perfect."

Ed Sheeran is set to claim his fourth Number 1 on the UK Official Singles Chart as his latest single Perfect - newly re-worked as a duet with Beyonce - leads the way on the Official Chart Update.
Perfect originally entered the chart at Number 4 back in March, when he released his ÷ album. Last week the track matched its original peak after being given an official single release, and is now set to take this week's top spot after putting out a new version of the song with Beyonce.
If Perfect holds at Number 1, it will become Ed’s fourth UK chart topper following Sing, Thinking Out Loud and Shape of You.
Jay-Z got real about everything from his marriage to Beyoncé to his mother's sexuality and his relationship with Kanye West in an interview with T Magazine.
Jay opened up about his infidelity, a personal topic he delved into on 4:44.
"The hardest thing is seeing pain on someone’s face that you caused, and then have to deal with yourself," he said during the interview with New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet.
Between 4:44 and Beyonce's Lemonade, "we were using our art almost like a therapy session," he said, revealing he was "really proud of the music she made, and she was really proud of the art I released."
Jay confirmed that he and Bey worked on a joint album together around the time Lemonade dropped and that they "still have a lot of that music" that is unreleased.
He also spoke of weathering storms in their relationship. "You know, most people walk away, and like divorce rate is like 50 percent or something ’cause most people can’t see themselves," he said.
Billy Eichner might want to start practicing his scales because the Billy on the Street star just revealed he's going to sing with Beyoncé in the 2019 remake of The Lion King.
E! News' Jason Kennedy caught up with Eichner at the 2017 American Music Awards and asked him about being cast in the live-action film.
"I was freaking out," Eichner told the E! News host. "I mean, the cast is amazing. Me and Seth Rogen are Timon and Pumbaa, so we do ‘Hakuna Matata' and then we also sing ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight' with Simba and Nala, who are going to be voiced by Donald Glover and someone who is named Beyoncé."
Even though the comedian and the Lemonade singer will both be featured in the Elton John hit, Eichner wondered if he'll even get to meet the Grammy-winning artist in-person.
"Why would she want to be in the studio with me?" he said.
In addition to Eichner, Beyoncé, Rogen and Glover, the live-action remake will feature James Earl Jones as Mufasa, John Oliver as Zazu and Keegan-Michael Key as Kamari. The film will be directed by Jon Favreau, who also worked on the 2016 remake of The Jungle Book.
The nominees for the 49th NAACP Image Awards were announced today and Beyonce is up for one award:
Outstanding Female Artist Andra Day – “Stand Up For Something” (Warner Bros. Records) Beyoncé – “Die With You” (Columbia Records/Parkwood Entertainment) Ledisi – “Let Love Rule” (Verve Label Group) Mary J. Blige – “Strength of a Woman” (Capitol Records) SZA – “Ctrl” (RCA Records/Top Dawg Entertainment)
Winners will be announced during the two-hour star-studded event hosted by Anthony Anderson, which will be broadcast LIVE on TV One on Monday, January 15, 2018 at 9pm/8c.
Shortly after Adele took home the Grammy award for Album of the Year in February, she broke it in half--with the intention of physically sharing it with Beyoncé, the internet concluded—in recognition of the latter's Lemonade. But Queen Bey won an even more valuable distinction outright: she's this year's highest-paid woman in music, pulling in a whopping $105 million pretax.
Lemonade was a hit with both critics and fans, giving Beyoncé her sixth solo No. 1. The ensuing Formation World Tour, much of it falling into our list's scoring period, grossed a quarter of a billion dollars. Then she took time off as she and husband Jay-Z welcomed twins Rumi and Sir this summer. Adele finished second, earning $69 million, boosted by seven-figure nightly grosses on her first proper tour since 2011.
In order to form our list, we looked at pretax income from June 1, 2016 through June 1, 2017, and did not take out fees charged by agents, managers and lawyers. We gathered data from Nielsen SoundScan, Pollstar, the RIAA and interviews with industry insiders. The two mononymous stars both earned tens of millions more than the rest of the pack, but there are plenty of notable names further down the list.
The 45th annual American Music Awards were held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, November 19. Beyonce won in the only category that she was nominated in this year, Favorite Female Artist - Soul/R&B. Congrats!
Favorite Female Artist - Soul/R&B Beyonce -- WINNER Kehlani Rihanna
Camila Cabello has fought off challenges from Rita Ora and Eminem to score a third week atop the Official UK Singles Chart with Havana.
Thanks to a new remix featuring Daddy Yankee, and the original Young Thug version still proving popular, Havana finishes 8,000 ahead of nearest competitor Rita Ora. Rising to Number 2, Anywhere is Rita’s third Top 10 single this year and her highest chart placing since I Will Never Let You Down topped the Official Singles Chart in May 2014.
Highest new entry this week comes from Eminem and Beyoncé at Number 7. Walk On Water becomes Eminem’s 28th UK Top 10, and Beyonce’s 19th as a credited performer.
Just two days ago, (Nov. 8) Eminem sent the internet into a frenzy with a speculative social media post on a "Revival" prescription note that read “Walk on Water. Take as needed.” Prescription note-styled advertisements have popped up across the United States over the past few weeks without much clarification from Em’s team.
Friday, (Nov. 10) Slim Shady posted a hoax infomercial directed at sufferers of AR claiming they will be able to “Walk On Water with Revival." Marshall Mathers returns with a Beyonce feature for his first single that will be appearing on the "Lose Yourself' artist's forthcoming project.
Listen to “Walk on Water” below and read the lyrics under the cut!
Beyoncé is auctioning the massive black hat she wore during her Formation World Tour behind Lemonade. The winner of the auction will receive the iconic, 10x8 inch felt hat signed by Beyoncé as well as a photograph of her wearing it. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the the Lung Transplant Project. Find more information on it and place your bids here.
Beyoncé — as close as any modern artist to royalty status in American pop music — will play the queen to be of the Pride Lands in Disney’s coming live-action remake of “The Lion King.”
The studio confirmed Tuesday that she will voice the role of Nala, opposite Donald Glover’s Simba, in the classic coming-of-age tale set among the animal kingdom of the African savanna.
The star-studded cast will also include James Earl Jones — reprising his role as Mufasa from the 1994 animated version — Chiwetel Ejiofor in the part of Scar, and a new spin on a vintage odd couple: Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen as Timon and Pumbaa.
The new “King” will make a play for a box office coronation in July 2019. It will join a string of live-action adaptations (with a healthy dose of state-of-the-art visual effects) that have been reliable hits for Disney in recent years, following “Beauty and the Beast” this year, “The Jungle Book” in 2016 and “Cinderella” in 2015. Jon Favreau, who helmed the recent “Jungle Book,” will direct. Read more...
