Beyoncé takes center stage at 2018 City of Hope gala

October 12, 2018

Just before inviting the audience to sing along with her at Thursday’s City of Hope Spirit of Life gala, Beyoncé, fresh from her On the Run II tour with husband Jay-Z, had a few words to say to Warner/Chappell Music Chairman and Chief Executive Jon Platt, the night’s honoree.

“I’m so honored to celebrate you tonight,” said the recording superstar, the feathers on her gown fluttering in the light breeze. “Most people in this industry lead with their ego, but you lead with your heart. You’ve touched so many lives, mine included.”

She then launched into a powerful four-song set of “XO,” “Perfect,” “Ave Maria” and “Halo.”


Beychella sweatshirt to be auctioned off at Ebay Celebrity Stylist Sale

September 27, 2018

“There’s something about winning an Ebay auction that’s just so exciting,” says stylist Mariel Haenn, one half of the power duo, known as Rob and Mariel, that’s responsible for J.Lo’s glamorous, high-wattage looks. “Agreed,” says her business partner Rob Zangardi. “That cha-ching notification always gives me a thrill.” Even more so, perhaps, if you have just won the yellow Michael Costello jumpsuit worn by Lopez at the 2015 AMAs, or a pair of Justin Bieber’s quilted leather Balmain skate shoes, or one of Kendall Jenner’s Adidas sweatsuits from her collaboration with Daniëlle Cathari, which are just some of the items that eBay will auction on the site’s first-ever Fall Stylist Sale running from September 25th though October 2nd.

The sale, which is part of the Ebay For Charity initiative, involves a team of top-tier celebrity stylists including Marni Senofonte (whose has dressed Lauryn Hill, Beyoncé, and Kendall Jenner); Karla Welch (best known perhaps for her teen-idol clients Justin Bieber and Lorde); Ilaria Urbinati (who outfits leading men like Donald Glover, Rami Malek, and Armie Hammer and the aforementioned Rob and Mariel to curate pieces from their archives for an auction to benefit the cause of their choice. The result is a collection over 50 pieces ranging from jewelry, bags, and shoes to sold-out collectibles and one-of-a-kind custom pieces by designers including Gucci, Valentino, Balenciaga, Jimmy Choo, and Balmain, many of which have walked the red carpet. Prices will start at 99 cents, and the lots will be featured on each of the stylists’ Instagram stories beginning today , allowing shoppers to swipe up and place bids on eBay.

Here, a first look at some of the most covetable pieces that will go under the hammer.

Beyoncé Set to Perform at City of Hope Gala

September 17, 2018

It was announced today that global icon Beyoncé will perform at the City of Hope gala on October 11 in Los Angeles. This will mark her first solo performance following the successful run of the biggest tour of the summer, with JAY-Z. OTRII stadium tour started in Cardiff, UK in June and is scheduled to wrap on October 4 in Seattle, Washington.

City of Hope, a world-renowned independent research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases, is honoring Jon Platt, Chairman and CEO of Warner/Chappell Music, with its prestigious Spirit of Life® award. Platt has worked with Beyoncé since 2005.

Inspired by the guiding humanitarian principles of City of Hope and motivated by the institution's commitment to innovative medical research and compassionate patient care, a group of key industry executives founded the charity’s Music, Film and Entertainment Industry Group in 1973. In its 45-year history, the group has raised more than $118 million for City of Hope and has honored some of the most important figures in the music and entertainment industry.

The evening’s host will be producer/entertainer Pharrell Williams and JAY-Z, multi-Grammy winner/entrepreneur, will present the award to Platt.

“Beyoncé agreed to perform without a moment’s hesitation, and that wasn’t just for me,” said Jon Platt. “She wanted to be part of our celebration for the patients, doctors, scientists, and nurses who make City of Hope a place where miracles can happen. That’s what makes her a cultural icon. She’s not only a genius, in a class of her own, but she has phenomenal heart and soul, and she knows how to use them. This event is going to be one for the ages.”

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.

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.

Beyoncé's Choreographers Talk Coachella

May 3, 2018

Since November, Chris Grant and JaQuel Knight have been up to their elbows in marching bands, musicians and dancers — dozens of men and women from an array of traditions.

Beyoncé may have been front and center at her spectacular Coachella performances last month. But two of her secret weapons were Mr. Grant and Mr. Knight, the show’s main choreographers.

From the start Beyoncé was clear about what she wanted. “She said, ‘Let’s do a homecoming,’” Mr. Knight said. “Boom. A nice, clear concept that we were all able to snap into and execute.”

In the nearly two-hour performance, references to homecoming at historically black colleges and universities (H.B.C.U.s) — complete with a marching band and a glittering majorette solo — lived alongside dance styles ranging from flexing, a form born on the streets of Brooklyn, to stepping, a percussive form popular in fraternities and sororities.

Beginning in December, Mr. Grant and Mr. Knight worked with Beyoncé’s music team and started their preliminary dance preparations. By January, they started skeleton-crew rehearsals. “We worked with 12 dancers for a month just to start to further develop the ideas that we laid down in December,” Mr. Knight said. “We started to build choreography.”

Michelle Williams Talks Beyonce's Coachella Performance

April 29, 2018

Michelle Williams knows how to keep a secret. “We’re the secret queens,” the singer tells Billboard in the wake of performing two consecutive weekends at Coachella with headliner Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland. The trio, who rose to commercial acclaim in the late ‘90s and early aughts as Destiny’s Child, had been keeping the surprise under wraps since February, when Bey reached out to her former band members and asked them to join her for a medley of their mega-hits including “Say My Name,” “Lose My Breath” and “Soldier.”

“It’s just like old girlfriends coming together,” explains the 37-year-old, who last reunited as Destiny’s Child at the 2015 Stellar Awards where they performed her upbeat gospel single “Say Yes.” “It’s something that when the three of us come together, we all know we feel safe within each other. Like I got your back. We’re good. I really love that about us.”

Since Destiny’s Child went on hiatus in the wake of their last album, 2004’s Destiny Fulfilled, Williams hasn’t slowed. She’s put out four solo full-lengths including her final release, 2014’s Journey to Freedom (which won’t be her last); starred on stage as leads in Chicago and Aida; launched her own furniture and candle line Believe by Michelle; and, more recently, got engaged to pastor Chad Johnson just prior to her Coachella performance. Still teeming with excitement from the pair of shows, Williams explains how it all came together.

There were rumors before Coachella that a Destiny’s Child reunion might happen. How did the conversations begin for this? Did Beyoncé call you and just say, “It’s time?”

Coachella Weekend 2 Rehearsals

Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival - Weekend 2

April 22, 2018

Beyoncé returned to Coachella last night for the second weekend—and her second performance as headliner. The performance wasn't streamed this time, and despite an initial announcement, SiriusXM radio's live stream didn't include her set.

Visually the show was refreshed, with Beyoncé and her 100 dancers and band members washed in shades of magenta and virtually every ensemble the singer wore was swapped out for a new look.

The set-list, however, remained untouched and she was again joined by husband Jay-Z, former Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams as well as her sister Solange Knowles. There was an extra surprise, as the singer was also joined by J. Balvin for a quick run of "Mi Gente."

Beyoncé's Coachella merchandise collection was expanded with two new items, which are now available on the Coachella Pop-Up Store website.

Beyonce's Second Coachella Weekend Performance Won't Be Streamed

April 19, 2018

Confirmed: Beychella’s second weekend won’t feature the exact same iconic set we saw before. Backup dancer Jo’Artis Mijo Ratti told Variety that the team is “switching up a couple things, so there could still be a wow factor.” The bad news: Beyoncé’s second Coachella set this weekend won’t stream on YouTube, nor are there plans to re-air it. However, members of the Beyhive can live-stream the audio for Weekend 2 on SiriusXM’s Coachella Radio.

Beyonce's Coachella Performance Broke YouTube Viewing Record

April 18, 2018

As arguably one of the best live shows of recent times, Beyoncé's Coachella performance broke a major viewing record on YouTube during its live stream on Saturday, April 14. According to a press release, this year's Coachella was reportedly the festival's biggest to date, bringing over 41 million live views from fans in 232 countries over the weekend. Beyoncé's Saturday stage show alone garnered 458K simultaneous viewers around the world, making her awe-inspiring presentation the most viewed Coachella performance of all time, as well as the most viewed live music festival ever on YouTube.

Amidst the performance, Beyoncé became the first black woman to ever headline Coachella in its nearly 20-year history, and she absolutely made it a point to use the platform to showcase all of the beauty of her roots throughout the entire history-making night. Making mention of the monumental moment, Beyoncé spoke to the audience, saying, “Thank you Coachella for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline."

Beyonce's Mom 'Stands Corrected' After Questioning Bey's Coachella Vision

April 17, 2018

Beyoncé's mom, Tina Knowles Lawson, knew her daughter would perform a headlining set for the ages at Coachella, but she was unsure as to how the performance would be received.

Now, she's admitting that she "stands corrected," as a revealing conversation with the pop star showed her how important it was for her to stick to her vision.

Lawson shared part of an intimate conversation between her and Beyoncé about the historic Coachella set, which drew inspiration from the marching bands, step teams and dance crews of HBCU, or Historically Black Colleges and Universities. "I told Beyoncé that i was afraid that the predominately white audience at Coachella would be confused by all of the black culture and Black college culture because it was something that they might not get," she writes.

"Her brave response to me made me feel a bit selfish and ashamed. She said 'I have worked very hard to get to the point where I have a true voice and at this point in my life and my career I have a responsibility to do whats best for the world and not what is most popular.'"

She went on to point out that Bey's mission was to unite the audience at Coachella and encourage understanding, even if they weren't familiar with HBCU: "She said that her hope is that after the show young people would research this culture and see how cool it is, and young people black and white would listen to 'LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SING' and see how amazing the words are for us all and bridge the gap."

"She also hopes that it will encourage young kids to enroll in our amazing Historically Black Colleges and Universities," Lawson continued. "I stand corrected ❤️"

As predicted, Beyoncé performed at Michelle Obama's 50th birthday party on Saturday, Jan. 18.

The singer, 32, posted a series of pictures from the intimate gathering via her Tumblr blog the next day. They show the "Partition" singer posing in a sequined gold mini-dress and nude heels, as well as petting one of the First Family's dogs. Beyoncé has a longstanding relationship with the Obama family. She serenaded the political power couple during the president's first inaugural ball in 2009, and she performed at his swearing-in ceremony in 2013. First Daughters Sasha and Malia are also big fans.

In addition to Beyoncé, John Legend also performed at the White House party. Famous attendees includied Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Samuel L. Jackson, Magic Johnson, Gayle King, Gladys Knight, Michael Kors, Rachael Ray, Smokey Robinson, Al Roker, Sheryl Sandberg and Stevie Wonder.

First Lady Michelle Obama turned 50 today, and proudly flashed her newly-issued AARP card via Twitter with a caption that shared her excitement of joining Barack in the 50+ club. FLOTUS will be embracing her half-century milestone with a birthday celebration at the White House this Saturday, Jan. 18.

“I have never felt more confident in myself, more clear on who I am as a woman,” she told Parade magazine about approaching the big 5-0.

Details about the celebration are being kept hush-hush, but CNN reports that the first lady will be serenaded by Beyoncé for the occasion. Beyoncé performed the Etta James classic “At Last” at President Obama’s first inaugural ball and teamed up with Michelle Obama for her “Let’s Move” initiative to reduce obesity and get kids active. The two powerful women are called “BFFs,” but in this case, BFF stands for “Bigtime Famous Friends.”
Madonna and Beyonce appear to have their eyes locked on the Grammy stage.

The pop superstars are expected to be among the big surprise moments during next week’s ceremony, according to two sources with knowledge of the plans.

Late last year Beyonce pulled off one of the best-kept secrets in recent music history when she stealthily released her self-titled album without as much as a hint.

The Grammys is where she will make her first televised performance in support of the project — which shattered iTunes records upon its release in December — according to a source with knowledge of the matter.

Madonna, however, is expected to pop up and lend guest vocals during a performance from one of the night’s nominees, an additional source confirmed.

Longtime Grammy Awards show producer Ken Ehrlich said he “can’t confirm” an appearance from Beyonce during an interview with Pop & Hiss to preview the show. Ehrlich didn’t confirm or deny Madonna's involvement.

“Let’s put it this way … we have a really great history that goes back to the early days of Destiny’s Child,” Ehrlich added. “I love working with . She’s incredible. She is so into what it is that she does and making sure that everybody who sees her walks away saying, ‘wow.’ ”

“Should she be on the show this year?” he continued. “I would think that the potential is there for that kind of moment.” Read more...

LeBron James has another ring to add to his collection! The two-time basketball champion tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson on Saturday, Sept. 14, sources confirm to Us Weekly.

The newlyweds said "I do" at the Grand Del Mar hotel in San Diego, Calif., and were joined by some of their famous friends, including fellow NBA star Dwyane Wade, his actress love Gabrielle Union and singer Neyo.

And in a huge surprise for guests, Beyonce and Jay Z performed their 2003 hit "Crazy in Love" with a full band, a source revealed to Us. Queen Bey, 32, flew in for just one night, having just performed at a concert in Brazil Friday for the South American leg of her Mrs. Carter World tour. She will be flying back out for another Sunday.
Beyonce performed yesterday during the Rock in Rio festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. At the end of the concert she asked the crowd to repeat XO, which is the title of the song she filmed a music video for last month, and danced to the song "Ah Lek Lek Lek"! You can watch the full performance below.



Chris Grant choreographed for Beyonce, and like many young dancers of his generation, it all started in front of the television in his mother's living room.

"I've been dancing since I was 2 and looking up to Michael Jackson from a very young age," Grant said in a recent interview with HuffPost Entertainment. "I would just come home from school and other people would go out and play or do sports, but I would just be stuck in front of my TV, replaying videos and learning every word and move and trying to figure out how he moved his body like that."

The dedication (or obsession) paid off: Jackson picked Grant to be a backup dancer on his ultimately ill-fated "This Is It" tour (Jackson died before the shows began). "For me to be at the audition, doing the same moves that I was doing in the living room in my mom's house was crazy for me," Grant said. "I had to pull myself together, especially when Michael walked into the room, and I did. I just pretended I was back in the room at my mom's house, I tuned everyone else out and I just gave it my all. Sure enough, he was able to see that."

And though dreams of touring with Jackson evaporated with the singer's death, Grant has played a part in the King of Pop's legacy, starring as Jackson himself in the "Michael Forever" tribute concert in 2011. So by the time he linked up with Beyonce, the contemporary performer who some have identified as coming closest to Jackson's combination of vocal ability and dance acumen, it's safe to say he had some confidence.

"I compare her to Michael because not only does she have the voice and the look, but the movement. The way it all ties together is just very important," Grant said of working with Beyonce. "Some people may lack the singing, the movement or the feeling, but she has it all. I was really intrigued by that, and I just wanted to help in any way that I could help. I sure learn from her -- she gives me a lot of information. That's what I love about the whole situation with her, is that we are learning from each other." Read more...
