Azealia Banks talks about Beyonce

Klaudia//September 11, 2012
Who did you admire growing up?
Aaliyah. And I love Beyonce – she's the queen of everything.
She's the most remarkable performer and musician. And this is just my humble opinion, but I just think she's better than everyone else making music right now.

Are you still starstruck by her?
Yes, and I met her – and I cried! It was so embarrassing. It was at the Met Ball. I was ****ing around with Kanye and she was sitting there, chilling and eating dinner. I freaked out. And I realized she saw me being a dummy and I started crying. Then I saw her expression, like, "Girl, get your **** together." I had to walk away and get myself together and pat my face, then come back to properly say hi! And if I meet her again someday, I'll probably cry again.

Perhaps one day you'll be tourmates.
(look of shock) I don't think... Ah, don't even get me aghast right now. Look at me, you already have me thinking about it! It would be so ****ing crazy.

Nicole Richie loves Beyonce's fearlessness

Klaudia//September 1, 2012
Socialite Nicole Richie is in awe of singer Beyonce Knowles for her fearlessness.

Richie admits she loves how "fearless" Knowles is and "always" checks out what she is wearing, reports

"I'm a fan of anybody who is as fearless with their looks as Beyonce is. I'm always excited to see what she's wearing," she said.

"My wardrobe has gone through so many different stages. When I was a kid, there was an odd-socks phase; my mother was too embarrassed to go out with me. When I'm 40, I'll go, 'What was I thinking when I was 30?'," she added.

The xx's Oliver Sim wants to write song for Beyoncé

Klaudia//August 28, 2012
The xx guitarist Oliver Sim has revealed aspirations to write a track for Beyoncé.

The musician described the US singer as having the same level of talent and star-power as Michael Jackson and admitted to being overwhelmed when seeing her perform live last year.

"Beyoncé is very special. I think she's important," Sim told Q magazine. "I think the super-pop thing that supposedly died with Michael Jackson is still there, with her.

"I saw her at Glastonbury and I may have shed a tear. Writing a song for her, that's the dream. The full Sasha Fierce."

Sim confessed that he has eaten out with Beyoncé and Jay-Z, but found it hard to speak to them after feeling too star-struck.

"We all went for dinner. There may have been a husband of hers there. I always had a lot of things I wanted to say to her and I completely choked."

Rita Ora: Mum is embarrassing around Beyonce

Klaudia//August 27, 2012
Rita Ora has said that Jay-Z and Beyonce know all kinds of embarrassing stories about her childhood... because her mum fills them in.

Speaking to The Mirror, the 'How We Do (Party)' hitmaker said that her mother can't resist mortifying her in front of her mentor and his popstar wife.

She said: "My mum is so embarrassing around Jay-Z and Beyoncé. She starts talking about when I was a baby and my nappy rashes!

"When they first met, my mum said to Jay, 'Are you the one who sang you've got 99 problems and a bitch aint one?'

"He said, 'Yeah', and my mum goes, 'You've got the baddest bitch', and points at Beyoncé. After that it was, 'See ya later Rita' and it was all about my mum and Jay."

"He's been doing this for years and I've just started. I just hope my career can be as successful as his. He's my musical idol."

She added: "Beyoncé told me, 'Be yourself because we like being around you'. I guess I'm like the little sister."

Obama fav working out song is 'Crazy in Love'

Klaudia//August 19, 2012
President Obama has said that Beyonce's hit number 'Crazy in Love' is a pretty good song to work out to.

"I've got a lot of old school R and B: you know, Steve Wonder, Earth, Wind and Fire, Marvin Gaye," the Politico quoted him as saying in an interview with KOB-FM in New Mexico.

"But I've always got a bunch of contemporary stuff: Jay-Z, Beyonce, Nas. You name it, I've got it.

"If I'm really trying to get my heart rate up, 'Crazy in Love' is a pretty good song to work out to," he said.

Beyonce Influenced White Rabbits New Album

Klaudia//August 19, 2012
LD: You cite Beyoncé as an influence for your latest album Milk Famous. Can you elaborate a bit?

SP (Stephen Patterson): I think we wanted to go into this record with a sort of, for lack of a better term, a mix tape kind of vibe where each song feels kind of unrelated to one another, but as a whole, it kind of makes sense. That was kind of the feeling that I got out of her most recent record, 4, and she's so great at interpreting each song so differently and just always like shifting the tone of each thing, but still owning each sort of feeling in each song; there will be a party song or a very emotional song or whatever and use different sounds and arrangements for each song without any sort of care for a cohesive hold and I think that, for me, was sort of inspirational. That inspired me as a singer. She's one of the greatest singers of our time. I get the feeling that although she's one of the most famous people in the world, she still really cares about every small little detail that's going on and you have to appreciate that. It's hard to be at that level and still put out something that's such high quality. It's cool.

Beyonce Knowles is Rita Ora's "superwoman."

Klaudia//August 13, 2012
'How We Do' hitmaker Rita cites the singer as her number one influence, and can't believe she has gone from her humble roots in England to getting one-on-one advice from her.

Rita, who is signed to the Roc Nation label run by Beyonce's husband, said: "One minute I'm singing Destiny's Child's 'Say My Name' in my dad's pub and the next I'm sitting here asking Beyonce, does she think this song is right for my album?"

"The first time I met her I was so nervous. I hugged her and told her she was my inspiration. She's a superwoman with a career and a family. I hope one day I can do the same, baby in one arm, microphone in the other.

"Beyonce was, and she still is, such an inspiration. She's been in the game for so long you think she's older but she's only 30."

The Barbados beauty isn't the only star who's been girl crushing on the "Love on Top" songstress, who gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy in January. On August 2, actress Rashida Jones tweeted in excitement after catching a post on Beyonce's Tumblr with the handwritten words "Inspiring woman!" next to the actress' photo.

"WHA??? ALL-TIME CAREER AND LIFE HIGHLIGHT. Thank you, Beyonce, you're a goddess." Jones, 36, wrote.

Beyonce has also been supportive.

When it comes to the best advice Beyonce offered, Ora shared in a separate interview, “She just wanted to see that I believed what I was singing — just to be comfortable in my skin, and to really understand what I’m about to do. That’s what she was trying to do, and that was the best advice ever.”

Jenna Randall: Beyonce Gets me in the Mood for Winning

Klaudia//June 8, 2012
Lounging in her suite at rock star hangout the Sanctum Soho Hotel in London with her blonde mane, lithe limbs and sun-kissed tan, you'd be forgiven for mistaking Jenna Randall, 23, for a supermodel. But don't be fooled - it's that powerhouse body of hers that's earned her the captaincy of the British synchronised swimming team, with three silver Commonwealth Games medals under her skintight swimsuit. So what are the Olympic hopeful's responsibilities as team captain? 'I write the team a checklist of what to pack, from pyjamas to goggles to swimsuits,' explains Jenna. 'I've had to learn to be organised from a young age, fitting my training around school and homework, and I'll do anything to make life easier for the team.' To get herself into the mood for a performance, Jenna finds music really helps. 'I listen to Beyonce's album 4 on the way to events,' she reveals. 'My favourite song is End Of Time - the beat always gets me pumped up.'

Beyonce Inspires NiRe AllDai's 'Boss-Bitch-Behavior'

Klaudia//June 8, 2012
Performing at the International Dance Music Awards in Miami in March and launching her first music video for her club single "Inside Out" are just two of Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter NiRé AllDai's endeavors since first stepping out as an artist. Her journey, which today sees her selecting songs — including tracks produced by Timbaland and the Stargate camp — for her upcoming debut album, actually began as a writer for other producers and artists. "I've always been an artist," NiRé told MTV News. "But my manager was like, 'Let's work this angle,' and it worked well because I was able to build a lot of really great relationships with dope producers who ended up helping me on my project." "I did a first single for Starshell, who was Mary J. Blige's first artist, and the single was called 'SuperLuva' ," NiRé continued. "I had a chance to write with Mary and Swizz and Timbaland and Dr. Dre, who's a really good friend of mine." After getting her writing chops up, meeting the right management and finding her A&R at Capitol Records, NiRé was ready to give it her all for a chance to perform for the masses. Her fearlessness, fashion and electricity are depicted vividly in her video for "Inside Out," which was directed by Hannah Lux Davis, who also directed videos for Shinedown and Anjulie, among others. NiRé is inspired by some of music's biggest, baddest stars, included among them Missy Elliott, Lil Wayne, and Beyoncé. "Beyoncé is the perfect example of what a solo artist should strive for," NiRé said. "If you want to be like 'boss-bitch-behavior'! When I'm in the gym and I'm tired and can't go anymore, I'm like, 'What would Beyoncé do?' She wouldn't stop."

Luke James Talks Opening For Beyoncé

Klaudia//May 27, 2012
R&B singer Luke James' career began buzzing a little over a year ago, and now he's on his way to having a career hotter than a Lousiana summer. The New Orleans native recently received a call breaking the news that he would be opening for Beyoncé's highly anticipated Memorial Day Weekend Revel Concert in Atlantic City, and it's all seemed like a whirlwind of rehearsals and amazing music since. Bursting onto the scene with his breakout hit "I Want You," Luke James has been working non-stop to fulfill his dream- music. GlobalGrind managed to catch up with Luke during his rehearsal time with Beyonce to chit-chat about opening for King Bey, going to school with Frank Ocean, and of course the juicy stuff-sex. Check out our exclusive interview below!

GlobalGrind: How did you end up linking up with Beyoncé?

Luke James: Well, basically, that all happened through my manager, Frank Gatson who works side by side with her throughout her career. She’s known of me since I’ve started in this business and what not. And I guessed it just felt right. My manager approached her with the option of using me as far as an opening act and she agreed. So, that’s basically how it happened.

I know you’ve been rehearsing nonstop. Has Beyoncé given you any advice on giving a good show?

Her advice doesn’t come directly, it’s been indirect, to me. Watching her perform and her work ethic as far as rehearsing and all that kind of stuff, I kind of got that information from her that way, by just watching — just being a sponge.
