Jay-Z explains sitting during National Anthem at Super Bowl LIV

February 6, 2020

Jay-Z has a message for all those who believed he and his wife Beyoncé were engaging in a silent protest at this year's Super Bowl: "It actually wasn't. Sorry."

The couple received some criticism after TMZ posted video showing them and their 8-year-old daughter Blue Ivy sitting while Demi Lovato performed "The Star-Spangled Banner" at Super Bowl LIV.

On Tuesday TMZ posted video of Jay-Z addressing what happened during an appearance at Columbia University in New York City.

According to the mogul, the whole thing "was not premeditated at all," but was instead a case of him doing his job given that his Roc Nation corporation has a partnership with the NFL which includes producing the Super Bowl halftime show and other major performances.

He said his wife, who was a featured performer at the Super Bowl in 2013 and 2016, was offering him some insight about the experience and they were seated from the time Yolanda Adams sang "America the Beautiful" before Lovato sang the National Anthem.

Beyoncé releases statement about signing with Sony/ATV

January 22, 2020

Beyoncé and Sony/ATV Music Publishing have signed a global agreement covering her entire song catalog.

The deal includes hits from Destiny’s Child, through to her collection of solo works written throughout her career.

The agreement with the publishing company reunites the artist with long-term ally Jon Platt, who joined Sony/ATV as Chairman and CEO last year.

“I am excited for what’s to come with my continued partnership with Jon Platt in his new leadership role at Sony/ATV,” said Beyoncé.

“Jon’s the executive who understands the creative mindset and continues to be both an advocate and protector. It has been an honor working with Jon from the start of my career.”

Sony/ATV Chairman and CEO Jon Platt, added: “Beyond all of her well-deserved accolades and accomplishments, Beyoncé is simply one of the most driven and impactful talents I know.

“I’ve had the privilege of making incredible music with her throughout her career and she continues to set the bar for creative expression in all forms.

“Beyoncé inspires generations with her songs and I am honored to reunite with her at Sony/ATV.”

Beyoncé Signs With Sony/ATV Music Publishing

January 18, 2020

Beyoncé has signed with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, Variety has learned.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z have worked closely for much of their careers with Jon Platt, who took the reins at the Sony Music company as chairman and CEO in 2019.

Platt already brought Rihanna over to his new home last fall, after moving to Sony/ATV from Warner/Chappell earlier in the year.

That the Carters would look to follow Platt at some point was close to a given, considering their mutual words of affection and high praise in the past.

Jay-Z called Platt his “brother” and said he was “the Obama of the music industry” when the publishing exec was the honoree at the annual City of Hope Spirit of Life dinner in October 2018. “This man has worked his way up from a Denver DJ to be the highest-ranking black executive,” he said.

Beyoncé performed at that same event. “I’m so honored to celebrate you tonight,” she said of Platt. “Most people in this industry lead with their ego, but you lead with your heart. You’ve touched so many lives, mine included.”

Beyoncé and Jay-Z send Reese Witherspoon a case of champagne

January 11, 2020

Reese Witherspoon can raise a toast this weekend with some high-end bubbly thanks to Beyoncé, Jay-Z and a little bit of courage.

"I just got home from New York and the most beautiful flowers are here and a case of Ace of Spades champagne," Witherspoon shared on her Instagram Stories. A note with the gift read, "More water from Jay & Bey."

It started with an encounter at last Sunday's Golden Globes ceremony when Witherspoon's table ran out of water. She thought it was only natural to ask the "Drunk in Love" couple for a champagne refill — and her bold move paid off.

The couple surprised the actress with a case of Armand de Brignac "Ace of Spades" champagne. Jay-Z has owned the luxury brand since 2014.

"It's 11:30. We're drinking champagne," Witherspoon said as she popped open a gold bottle with her mom, Betty, who asked whether it was too early to drink.

"Who cares? It's from Jay-Z and Beyoncé," the actress responded.

Beyoncé, one of the most celebrated visionaries of our time, has united with adidas, to design a collection that combines fashion and storytelling in an unprecedented way.

"It is a dream come true to re-launch IVY PARK as the sole owner," said Beyoncé. "My team has worked hard with the adidas team in bringing my vision to life for this first collection and I am grateful and proud. From the accessories to the clothes and footwear, I wanted to design and re-imagine pieces that serve as favorite armor for anyone who acknowledges the strength in their individual style and lives freely and boldly."

Beyonce NOT Performing In Ghana Despite Rumors

December 28, 2019

For fans hopeful for a Beyonce performance this weekend in Ghana, it’s bad news.

Because, it’s official: Queen Bey will not be taking to the stage.

For months, rumors have swirled about the superstar songstress performing during Year of the Return festivities in Accra. Which, for those not in the know, is an initiative to draw Black folk in the Western world and beyond back to the continent in recognition of it being 400 years since the first slave arrived in Virginia.

And the speculation intensified when Bey dropped Afrobeats-inspired project ‘The Gift’ – featuring many artists from the diaspora.

With many of said acts congregating this weekend at the AfroNation festival in Accra, anticipation for Bey reached fever pitch.

However, her longtime publicist has concretely denied any such showing:

Beyoncé hits karaoke bash in LA with mom Tina

December 18, 2019

Beyoncé — along with her mom, Tina Knowles, and guests including Kim Kardashian — attended a karaoke bash thrown by jeweler Lorraine Schwartz and her sister Ofira Sandberg at LA hot spot Blind Dragon this week.

“Beyoncé was dancing on a couch while her mom did a rendition of Chaka Khan’s ‘I Feel for You,’ ” said a spy.

We’re told other singers included DJ Cassidy — who took the stage to perform Nelly’s “Hot in Herre,” only to be joined by the rapper himself. Tiffany Haddish grabbed the mike to sing “Proud Mary,” and the evening ended with Schwartz and Sandberg belting out Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” — which we’re told had Beyoncé and other party guests dancing and singing along.

Beyoncé to release two collections with Adidas

December 11, 2019

Collaboration is a needle-mover, and Adidas is positioned to generate buzz next year with a robust lineup of product with key partners.

Beyonce Is Not Doing a Las Vegas Residency

December 9, 2019

Beyonce is not doing a Las Vegas residency, her rep has confirmed to Variety.

It’s “absolutely not true,” the rep stated.

Rumors that Queen Bey would be hitting the strip began circulating Saturday after website LoveBScott posted a story citing “sources” that said she would announce the residency in the first half of 2020. The report said the residency would have made Beyonce the highest-paid entertainer in the city.

The “Lemonade” mastermind has performed in Vegas before, releasing the “I Am… Yours: An Intimate Performance at Wynn Las Vegas” album, which was recorded over a few dates during her “I Am…” world tour, in 2009.

The news had, predictably, gotten Beyonce fans riled up, with some claiming that there was no way the star would agree to a residency rather than releasing a new album and touring in support. Others felt that the mother of three might like the steadiness of a residency as opposed to a world tour.

The Pepsi Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show just got way more exciting.

As if it wasn't enough that Beyoncé dropped a brand new song and music video on Saturday, sources confirm to ET that the singer will be performing the surprise single, titled "Formation," on Sunday during the Pepsi Halftime Show at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Judging from what we've already seen in the music video, which was released on the 34-year-old singer's website, we can already tell it's going to be epic.
Beyonce's Parkwood Entertainment company is getting an overhaul, with longtime GM Lee Anne Callahan-Longo leaving the company after five years, along with several other principals and staff members.

The move is part of a shift for the company as sources say Beyonce is relocating Parkwood's headquarters from New York to Los Angeles, where she spends the majority of her time. Parkwood's head of digital Lauren Wirtzer-Seawood left the company to join Instagram in November 2015 -- former Pledge Music executive Dan Ghosh-Roy took on that role in December -- and Callahan-Longo left before the end of the year. Steve Pamon, who ran the sports and entertainment marketing department at JP Morgan Chase since 2011, also came aboard as Chief Operating Officer in December as remaining staff began shifting to the West Coast.

Pamon was responsible for Chase Bank's sponsorship deal for Beyonce and Jay Z's On The Run stadium tour in 2014, which brought in an estimated 850,000 fans and grossed more than $100 million. He'll be tasked with running the day to day operations for Parkwood moving forward.

“Last year, Parkwood Entertainment created new departments and recruited new executives from the tech, business and entertainment sectors who joined the team to help grow Parkwood and its interests," Beyonce's rep Yvette Noel-Schure said in a statement provided to Page Six -- which also reported that former Warner Bros. Records exec Peter Thea is now working at Parkwood -- adding that senior staff were offered a chance to "reposition and stay on," while others decided to leave the company. "Lee Anne Callahan-Longo has worked with Beyonce for the last 10 years. Their friendship supersedes business, and while she is no longer an employee of Parkwood, she will remain an imperative part of Beyonce’s life."

Beyonce has one album remaining on her current deal with Columbia, but has been relatively quiet on the music front outside of a guest appearance on Coldplay's December LP A Head Full of Dreams. She's scheduled to join the band during its halftime set at the Super Bowl this Sunday, Feb. 7.

Beyonce's reps declined further comment.
Coldplay won't perform 'Hymn For The Weekend with Beyonce at the Super Bowl 50 halftime show.

The 'Single Ladies' singer provided uncredited guest vocals on the group's latest single, and though she'll be joining them on stage at the sporting spectacular on Sunday (02.07.16), it won't be on that track as the band feel it is too new.

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday (02.04.16), frontman Chris Martin said: "It only just came out, so I don't think it would be quite right. We love Beyonce's music. She's one of our all-time favourites, and she's one of the greatest performers I've ever witnessed.

Everyone who does this show knows it's the biggest honour."
Super Bowl's Greatest Halftime Shows, a two-hour special highlighting the best performances during the Super Bowl halftime shows, is set to air on CBS on Friday, February 5 at 9pm EST. The show will include performances and new interviews from the likes of Beyonce, U2, Bruno Mars and Katy Perry! Watch the commercial below.


In related news, Beyonce will reportedly attend the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Press Conference, which will take place on Thursday, February 4 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The event will be televised at 12:15 PM on the NFL Network.
The name of Beyoncé and Topshop's long-awaited sportswear brand has finally been revealed! "Ivy Park" was registered as a trademark name by Parkwood Topshop Athletic on December 11, 2015. You can read more about the trademark here.

Dancer Tammy Tansley will be featured in an advertising campaing for the fashion line, which reportedly was already shot in October! Her biography on bodyism.com states:

"Tammy models alongside her fitness career, she has led campaigns for brands including, FCUK, Topshop, Hunter, and Beyonce’s new fitness brand Ivy Park."

Beyonce wore pieces from the collection in the 7/11 interlude filmed for the Made In America festival! Watch the video again below.

Beyonce reportedly shot a music video for a song called "Formation"! @whatthekasim posted the following tweets:

"my dad shot 2 new Beyoncé videos and met Jay Z I'm jealous"

"apparently there's gonna b a Beyoncé song called formation or something"

He first revealed that his dad is going to work with Beyonce on January 22, the day before the video shoot in Los Angeles! See the tweet.

The title seems to be real, as it was featured on a style board that Beyonce's stylist Ty Hunter was spotted carrying out of her office back in August! See the picture again.

The song may have been produced by Boots. He tweeted the following:

"i guess y'all don't remember my "formation is key" tweet, huh"

Hopefully, we'll get a confirmation soon!
After an impromptu performance at a watering hole in Delhi's hip Hauz Khas last July, British rock band Coldplay took their India connection to the next level with a subsequent visit to Mumbai to shoot the music video for their new single, "Hymn for The Weekend" in October.

Now Sonam Kapoor does a cameo in the song, which is the second single of the band's seventh album, A Head Full of Dreams. When contacted, the elated actress confirmed the news, "I love Coldplay's music and so does the world. It was a huge honour to be a part of the video. It's a great concept and I had a lot of fun shooting for it."

The 30-year-old actress plays a mystical muse in the video directed by Ben Mor. "Sonam shot for a day last October at the Golfa Devi Temple in Worli and the Vasai fort," informs a source close to the actress. The video also features American pop diva Beyonce, who has also lent her vocals to the track.

The single is a follow-up to the album's first number, "Adventure of a lifetime," which became the band's 21st UK Top 40 hit and stayed in the top 10 for six weeks.

Sonam's sister, Rhea Kapoor, who often styles her looks conceptualised her appearance for this video too. "They zeroed in on a desi look with Sonam in a ghagra choli and wearing the traditional mang tika and a nose ring," adds the source.

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin sent the Indian social media into a meltdown when, accompanied by music composer Vishal Dadlani, actress Freida Pinto and members of the comedy collective, AIB, he turned up the Summer House cafe and belted out a few of the band's hits, including Paradise and Viva La Vida.

Martin and Freida had travelled to India with a non-profit organisation that is working to end extreme poverty by 2030.
Naughty Boy has hinted that Beyonce could be a surprise guests at the Brits this year - after their single Runnin’ featuring Arrow Benjamin was nominated for Best Video.

The DJ tells the Mirror: “I’ve spoken to Beyonce about it and she’s mad excited about it.

“She’s always invited to the Brits.”

The 2016 BRIT Awards will be held on February 24 at The O2 in London.
Lip Sync Battle didn't just launch its second season as a hit for Spike, it solidified its status as one of the few fresh and formidable reality shows on cable.

The Jan. 7 opener has already grossed a network best 4.7 million viewers and 3.4 rating among adults 18-49 after just three days of DVR, an anomaly in a crowded unscripted landscape that's been long-starved for the hit. And while its live viewing alone was enough to top cable's Thursday offerings, a cameo by Beyonce during the showdown between husband-and-wife Channing and Jenna Dewan Tatum brought a 88 percent boost from time-shifting.

Beyonce's arrival, it turns out, was a year in the making.

"We don't choose the songs for the performers — it's always their choice — and, since day one, the most requested artist has been Beyonce," Casey Patterson, who executive produces the show alongside Matador Content's Jay Peterson, told The Hollywood Reporter. "She's been the holy grail, and we've always been in contact with her camp. They know when we're gearing up for production."

Lip Sync Battle relies on the interest and participation of artists and record labels to clear rights for celebrities' chosen songs, so Beyonce has apparently been long aware of the interest to use her material. She gave the green light for Channing Tatum to tackle "Run the World (Girls)," but it wasn't until the eve of production that she committed to appearing alongside the actor. "Channing, during one of his rehearsals, sent an iPhone video message to her about two days before the show," says Patterson. "Only Channing and Beyonce know the back and forth, but I think that's what put it over the top." Read more...
