BeyHive Crashes Beyoncé Website Over… 'Renaissance' Film International Release Dates

Klaudia//December 19, 2023
The BeyHive were convinced that the visual drought of Beyoncé’s Renaissance era was finally coming to an end. On Monday evening, update accounts shared screenshots showing that the musician’s official website had been down for a number of hours, prompting fans to believe that a special announcement was coming. But it was only a false alarm. They had, in fact, crashed the website — only for the grand reveal to be the next set of countries in which the Renaissance tour film will be released.

“Okay, okay. Y’all didn’t have to break my website,” Beyoncé said in a trailer announcing the 15 additional countries where the film will be screened. “But I told y’all, the renaissance is not over.”

This weekend, Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé will be released in theaters throughout Brazil, Spain, Italy, Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, Indonesia, Hungary, Andorra, Romania, Bulgaria, Mongolia, and Taiwan.

Tina Knowles Says Beyoncé Was In The Studio For 24 Hours A Day Last Month

Klaudia//December 5, 2023
Beyoncé’s mother Tina Knowles has reflected on her daughter’s tireless work ethic with the arrival of her Renaissance film to rave reviews.

Knowles took to Instagram on Saturday (December 2) to salute Bey’s movie and post about the 100 percent approval rating she received from Rotten Tomatoes‘ reviews.

In her caption, Tina revealed that the music deity was in the studio 24 hours per day in the last month leading up to the film’s release, perfecting every element of the blockbuster while sometimes sleeping there.

“Last one about the Rotten Tomatoes! Just saw this !! When you see how hard someone works and all the sacrifices they make because for the last month my child was in a studio almost 24 hours a day I was with her most of that time sleeping in the studio,” she wrote. “She only went to take her kids to school to shower and come back.”

The elder Knowles continued: “There are only a few people that understand how hard she works ! how she works on every single thing that goes out in a movie or a video or a tour . #that is why I ride so hard for her !!! She deserves every alccolade that she gets.”

Beyoncé's 'Renaissance' is No. 1 at the box office with $21 million debut

Klaudia//December 5, 2023
Beyoncé ruled the box office this weekend.

Her concert picture, “ Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé,” opened in first place with $21 million in North American ticket sales, according to estimates from AMC Theatres Sunday.

The post-Thanksgiving, early December box office is notoriously slow, but “Renaissance” defied the odds. Not accounting for inflation, it’s the first time a film has opened over $20 million on this weekend in 20 years (since “The Last Samurai”).

Beyoncé wrote, directed and produced “Renaissance,” which is focused on the tour for her Grammy-winning album. It debuted in 2,539 theaters in the U.S. and Canada, as well as 94 international territories, where it earned $6.4 million from 2,621 theaters.

“On behalf of AMC Theatres Distribution and the entire theatrical industry, we thank Beyoncé for bringing this incredible film directly to her fans,” said Elizabeth Frank, AMC Theatres executive vice president of worldwide programming, in a statement. “To see it resonate with fans and with film critics on a weekend that many in the industry typically neglect is a testament to her immense talent, not just as a performer, but as a producer and director.”

Despite several other new releases including “Godzilla Minus One,” the Hindi-language “Animal,” Angel Studios’ sci-fi thriller “The Shift,” and Lionsgate’s John Woo-directed revenge pic “Silent Night,” it was a slow weekend overall. Films in the top 10 are expected to gross only $85 million in total.

Tina Knowles Claps Back at 'Ignorant, Racist' Comments About Beyoncé's Film Premiere Look

Klaudia//December 2, 2023
Tina Knowles has strong words for social media users who criticized Beyoncé’s complexion and styling at the premiere of her Renaissance World Tour concert film.

On Tuesday, Knowles, 69, shared a lengthy Instagram post calling out those who accused her daughter, 42, of “lightening her skin.” The caption was coupled with a video of Beyoncé throughout the years. However, the cover shot was at the center of the debate.

“Came across this today and decided to post it after seeing all of the stupid ignorant self, hating racist statements about her, lightening her skin, and wearing platinum hair wanting to be white,” Knowles began in the upload, which was set to Beyoncé’s song “Brown Skin Girl.”

The main image on the post was a picture of the Grammy winner at the Los Angeles premiere of her Renaissance World Tour concert film at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater on Saturday night.

Standing in front of a silver backdrop for pictures at the event, Beyoncé wore a custom silver chainmail gown by Versace. She accessorized the look with matching silver opera gloves and silver heeled sandals.

The "Break My Soul" singer also rocked platinum, long blonde hair styled in a sleek middle part.

Knowles’ message continued, condemning those who entertained a "stupid narrative with hate and jealousy.”

Flannels launches new 'Renaissance' pop-up for release of Beyoncé's concert film

Klaudia//December 2, 2023
Flannels has once again partnered with Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment for a special pop-up with official apparel and exclusive installations to celebrate the release of the singer’s new ‘Renaissance’ film.

It follows a debut earlier this year which saw the retailer’s Oxford Street flagship, Flannels X, transform into a viral shopping and discovery experience in line with the five-night London residency of Beyoncé’s ‘Renaissance World Tour’ in May 2023.

The retailer now returns with an amplified iteration of the shopping concept that drove around-the-block queues the first time around, with the highly-anticipated release of ‘Renaissance: A film by Beyoncé’ once again about to drive a concert-inspired fashion craze among fans.

The new ‘Renaissance’ pop-up lands in Flannels stores in London, Liverpool and Sheffield today, 1 December – when the film goes on general release – before arriving in Belfast on 14 December.

The concept is inspired by Beyoncé’s ‘Renaissance’ fashion extravaganza, and is a nod to the “disco cowgirls and alien superstars” who united in their droves across 39 cities and 56 shows to take part in “the year’s biggest party”.

Now, in line with its own festive creative concept ‘We Are The Party’, the selected four Flannels flagship stores will become a one-stop destination for fans to immerse themselves once again in the Renaissance spirit.

"Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé" Premiere in Los Angeles

Klaudia//November 26, 2023
Beyoncé brought Renaissance to the big screen on Saturday night, premiering her new concert film at a star-studded event in Beverly Hills.

The premiere, which took place at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Samuel Goldwyn Theater and included a dress code of “cozy opulence”, featured a chrome carpet followed by a screening of the movie. Guests were invited to take photos on the glitzy step-and-repeat — which featured Renaissance film artwork — and participate in several other photos ops, including posing with Beyoncé’s signature silver horse.

Destiny’s Child members Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett, along with Janelle Monáe, Issa Rae, Lizzo, Halle and Chloe Bailey, Lupita Nyong’o, Tyler Perry, Niecy Nash-Betts, Gabrielle Union, Ava DuVernay, Lena Waithe, Kris Jenner, Robin Thede, Jeremy Pope, Laverne Cox, Marsai Martin, Coco Jones, Beyoncé dancers Les Twins and her parents, Tina and Mathew Knowles, were among the stars who walked the carpet. Following arrivals, attendees were brought inside the theater, where phones were locked up.

Beyoncé herself did not formally walk the carpet, but snuck in and out of the screening with her family once the lights went out. Inside the event, the starry group of guests mingled before the movie started, but once it began, stayed in their seats and left the dancing for the screen. Attendees were also given Renaissance-branded popcorn tins and soda cups, as well as a sample of the star’s new perfume.

Beyoncé and Other Iconic Women Take Their Place at the Smithsonian

Klaudia//November 21, 2023
She is already known to her millions of fans as “Queen Bey.” So, it’s fitting that, in her likeness that now hangs at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter wears a golden crown that seems to emanate from her forehead.

The glossy 3.5-foot-high portrait from a 2018 Vogue cover story—the singer’s fourth—is historic: It was the first cover shoot in the magazine’s 126-year history to be done by a Black photographer. The artist, Tyler Mitchell, was just 23 when he shot the image titled See Your Halo.

It will likely be one of the most popular, and certainly one of the most recognizable, images in a recently opened showcase of newly acquired works at the National Portrait Gallery, alongside the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who can be seen in a stately 2020 cast made from the 2013 original by Meredith Bergmann, sculptor of the Women’s Rights Pioneers Monument in New York’s Central Park.

When the Portrait Gallery opened more than a half-century ago, just 17 percent of its collection represented women—either as subjects or creators. That number has roughly doubled since then, museum officials say. The new exhibition, “Recent Acquisitions,” does its best to elevate those numbers by concentrating on women subjects and artists.

The 21 recently acquired works in a variety of media, alongside two commissions, showcase what Rhea L. Combs, the museum’s director of curatorial affairs, calls the “diverse contributions by women represented in our collection as artists or as sitters from across disciplines and time periods, as well as the museum’s commitment to telling those wide-ranging stories.”

Beyoncé's Concert Film Could Top A Tom Cruise Box Office Record

Klaudia//November 21, 2023
Beyoncé's much-anticipated concert film, Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé, was always going to be huge, from the moment it was first announced this fall. Now, early projections show just how big it may be when it finally hits theaters early next month, enough to help it make history.

Projections for its starting sum have it opening with $20 million as it hits theaters on December 1, according to Deadline.

The movie demonstrated its potential success at the box office when tickets were first put on sale weeks ago. First-day pre-sales for Beyoncé's latest music-related film since Black Is King reached between $6 million to $7 million back in October. That early indicator hinted at the movie's widespread appeal and showed that the stage had been set—pun intended—for a triumphant debut.

To contextualize the expected opening weekend figure for the forthcoming Beyoncé’s new picture, the record for the biggest opening weekend for a film in early December still belongs to Tom Cruise’s The Last Samurai. That movie launched with $24.2 million in 2003, and nothing has been able to beat it since.

If Beyoncé had opened her latest full-length feature this past weekend, it would have ranked as the second-highest-grossing movie in America. The singer’s concert film would have come in behind The Marvels, which arrived with $46 million—a disappointing low for a Marvel picture. In second comes Five Nights at Freddy's at $9 million.

James Fauntleroy Talks Working With Beyoncé

Klaudia//November 18, 2023
In a wide-ranging conversation with Billboard, James Fauntleroy discusses working with Beyoncé:

Now, I would be remiss if I didn’t ask this since you do sing “Sleigh like Beyoncé” in the song, so have you worked with Queen Bey recently?

The last thing we did was that song with Nas and Jay-Z . I sang the hook. That was the first song I ever put out that I didn’t write, actually. They sent that to me done already and just asked me to put my voice on it and Beyoncé at the end which sounds epic.

As I was saying earlier about service, it’s really to make whoever is playing Beyoncé, the listener who is Beyoncé in that moment, have the opportunity to feel that. I’m always gon f–k with Beyoncé on whatever s–t she’s doing, but the idea came into my mind because of what she represents.

Since that Nas song, I’ve worked on some s–t for her, I’ll say. But nobody knows what’s coming out except for her, so I really have no idea.

André 3000 had to ask Beyoncé's permission to use her name in new song title

Klaudia//November 18, 2023
André 3000 has revealed he had to ask Beyoncé’s permission to use her name on a song title.

The Outkast rapper recently unveiled his first solo album in 17 years, which consists of an 87-minute long album of experimental flute music. ‘New Blue Sun’ dropped on November 17.

André 3000 revealed he had to go to some lengths for one of his titles: ‘Ninety Three ‘Til Infinity And Beyoncé’. In an interview with NPR, the rapper revealed he had to ask the legendary singer for her permission to use her name.

“So No. 5 is called ‘Ninety Three ‘Til Infinity And Beyoncé.’ That was more when I was a youngster – Souls of Mischief was one of my favorite groups and ’93 ’til Infinity,’ everybody remembers that song,” he began.

Patti LaBelle Says Beyoncé and Ariana Grande Call Her Up for Advice

Klaudia//November 18, 2023
Patti LaBelle is an undeniable music icon, and she's more than happy to share some advice with younger artists.

The Godmother of Soul walked the red carpet at the CMT Smashing Glass: A Celebration of the Groundbreaking Women of Music event in Nashville, and she spoke with ET's Rachel Smith about being recognized at the event for her contribution as a groundbreaking female artist.

"It's special! I mean, I'm here with Tanya Tucker and Sheryl Crow and all these wonderful people," LaBelle marveled, adding that it feels good "just knowing that we make a difference."

In fact, LaBelle says she's often called upon to lend an ear or dispense advice.

Beyoncé in Talks for Next Residency at Las Vegas' MSG Sphere: Report

Klaudia//November 18, 2023
Beyoncé may be the next artist to stage a residency at the MSG Sphere in Las Vegas.

According to the New York Post, Beyoncé is in talks with the executive chairman of MSG Networks, James Dolan, about producing a $10-million-dollar stage show for the venue in 2024. The pop star is said to have already toured the venue with her manager and mom, Tina Knowles, and her husband, Jay-Z.

Beyoncé’s residency at the new venue would come after U2’s ongoing “U2:UV Achtung Baby” residency, which recently welcomed Lady Gaga for a guest performance, and was extended into February 2024.

While Beyoncé isn’t the only name in the running for a residency at the Sphere — Bon Jovi, Paul McCartney, and Lady Gaga have all “been considered” as well — an artist of her stature would certainly give a good boost to the venue, which cost $2.3 billion to build and reported a $98.4 million loss in the latest financial quarter. Tickets for her “Renaissance World Tour” this past summer were in such high demand, even “obstructed view” seats sold for hundreds of dollars.
