August 21, 2019

Beyoncé is back with some new merchandise for fans. The pop and R&B legend released the BeySearch Collection, which went live on her official website around 1 p.m. ET on Friday (Aug. 9).

The fresh capsule was inspired by the millions of images that flood your Google Image search, filled with every memorable step of Bey's career. Each item's design attempts to capture an aesthetic of a "90s teenager's bedroom walls combined with the tidal wave of today's meme culture," according to a press release.

There's a lot going on with each piece, as the apparel and accessories are almost a Beyoncé Knowles-Carter mood board of sorts. The collection includes windbreakers, bucket hats, shorts, bodycon dresses, work shirts, crop tops, fanny packs, and phone cases.

Vogue Beyoncé Portrait Heading to Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery

August 21, 2019

A striking portrait of Beyoncé, shot by the rising photographer Tyler Mitchell for Vogue’s all-important September issue last year, is on its way to the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington.

Mr. Mitchell, who is the first African-American photographer and one of the youngest to shoot a cover for Vogue, announced the news online on Tuesday.

“A year ago today we broke the flood gates open,” Mr. Mitchell said on Instagram. “Since then it was important to spend the whole year running through them making sure every piece of the gate was knocked down. And now I’m glad to share this picture is being acquired into” the museum.

Concetta Duncan, a spokeswoman for the museum, confirmed the acquisition, but said the piece would not be on permanent display. It’s under discussion as to when the photograph will go on view, she said.

“We are delighted to acquire this magnificent portrait of Beyoncé,” Leslie Ureña, associate curator of photographs for the museum, said in a statement. “This particular work brought us closer to Beyoncé’s words, appearing within the magazine’s pages, and showing us more of the historic shoot.”

Beyonce Auditioned For 'Josie and the Pussycats'

While the actresses in 2001's cult hit Josie and the Pussycats only sang backing vocals for Letters to Cleo singer Kay Hanley, filmmakers apparently had a number of notable musicians audition for the film -- including Beyoncé Knowles, who would later become one of the biggest stars on the planet.

The revelation came as part of an interview with Billboard, who were speaking with directors Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan as well as star Rachael Leigh Cook and Hanley ahead of a concert Tuesday night in Los Angeles in which Hanley played songs from the Josie and the Pussycats soundtrack for the first time live.

“The list of people who auditioned to be in the movie. The fact that Beyoncé, Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes and Aaliyah came in to audition was crazy,” Elfont said. “I think it was 2000. We read Left Eye twice. She really wanted to play the part. Beyoncé was really quiet and shy. Who knew? It was a comedy and Aaliyah was more serious and thoughtful. We wanted someone who could really play the comedy.”

When the film was in production, Beyoncé would have been well-known as a part of Destiny's Child but wasn't the global phenom that she would later become.

Had she won the role of Valerie Brown -- eventually played in the film by Rosario Dawson -- the band's meteoric rise in the film would likely have turned into a metaphor for Beyoncé herself in the years following the film's release and subsequent box office failure.

The Billboard story does not make clear what role the women were auditioning for -- it could have been Josie -- but unlike the reinvented Pussycats of Riverdale, the Josie movie featured the characters looking more or less like the cartoon and comics, so the obvious assumption is that they would have been auditioning for the one character of color.

The movie earned only about half of its production budget back during its original theatrical run, but has gone on to become a cult classic. The soundtrack, which is being reissued tomorrow on vinyl for the first time via Mondo, went gold and is fondly remembered even by people who don't love the movie.
