Beyoncé Confirmed to Perform at Super Bowl 50

Klaudia//January 8, 2016
It's official: Beyoncé is returning to the Super Bowl.

Pepsi, the sponsor of the halftime show, confirmed Thursday that the 20-time Grammy Award winner will be taking the stage alongside Coldplay at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. Feb. 7. "Beyoncé has been in the talks to perform for sometime but it was all top secret," a source tells E! News exclusively. "Beyoncé is very excited to be at this years big Super Bowl. She can't wait."

Beyoncé first performed the national anthem before Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004 at the Reliant Stadium in Houston. She returned in 2013 to headline the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show, held at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Beyoncé sang her biggest solo hits, including "Run the World (Girls)," "Love on Top," "Crazy in Love," "End of Time," "Baby Boy," "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" and "Halo." She also invited Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams to join her in performing Destiny's Child's "Bootylicious" and "Independent Women Part I."

The performance resulted in a blackout and a record number of tweets.

Super Bowl 50 should be even bigger. "Performing in the past at the Super Bowl was one of her favorite performances," a source tells E! News exclusively. "She loved the energy of the crowd. She is a big fan of Coldplay and thinks it's going to be a fantastic performance by both of them."

Beyoncé, who is friends with frontman Chris Martin and his wife Gwyneth Patlrow, has been on the same bill as Coldplay a number of times, most recently at the 2015 Global Citizen Festival in New York's Central Park. Beyoncé and Coldplay also collaborated on the band's seventh album, A Head Full of Dreams.

Additional performers for Super Bowl 50 are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Beyonce 'In No Way Tied' to Saartjie Baartman Film

Klaudia//January 6, 2016
After rumors swirling that Beyonce would be writing and starring in a film about Saartjie (Sarah) Baartman -- the South African woman who appeared in freak shows because of her physical features during the 1800s -- the multi-hyphenate is denying her involvement.

"Beyonce is in no way tied to this project," her rep told Billboard in a statement (Jan. 5). "This is an important story that should be told, however."

Baartman -- shown off in exhibits under the name Hottentot Venus -- was made a spectacle across Europe, particularly England and Paris for her voluptuous shape. She died in 1815 at the age of 26 -- five years after her arrival in Europe -- but did not receive a proper burial in her native South Africa until 2002.

Jack Devnarain, chairman of the South African Guild of Actors, echoed Beyonce's sentiment, telling Billboard over e-mail that Baartman's story deserves recognition.

"The story of Saartjie Baartman is a tale of torture and humiliation of a woman, womanhood in general and an entire culture indigenous to Southern Africa. As an episode in South African history, it describes the crippling damage of racism, sexism and exploitation," he said. "Baartman was paraded as a freak and brutally robbed of her humanity. Her story needs to be told."

Beyoncé's Topshop Collection Already In Production

Klaudia//December 5, 2015
In the world of celebrity collaborations, this should take some beating. Beyoncé and Topshop’s long-awaited sportswear/steetwear line will hit stores next April and be sold in up to 25 markets.

Topshop boss Sir Philip Green is banking on the buzz around the range to help drive sales and footfall at Topshop stores.

But this is more than your average celebrity tie up. Queen B, as the star is affectionately known, has formed a 50-50 joint venture with Topshop to launch the brand, called ‘Parkwood Topshop Athletic’, and both parties are obviously hoping it will turn into a runaway success and long-term relationship.

According to WWD, the items from the new Topshop-Beyonce collection will include athleisure-inspired clothing, accessories, and footwear that embody a sporty lifestyle and are perfect for trotting from the gym to your favorite post-workout lunch stop.

“Based on what she does, how she works out, the conversation got into that category,” Topshop owner Sir Philip Green told WWD in October of 2014. Since then, the beloved star has shot the images for the campaign and is even testing each piece of clothing to make sure they’re fit for those wanting to look just like B. “She’s also tried everything on to make sure it’s right,” Green told WWD last week, adding that the items are currently “in production.”

It’s Topshop’s first shared venture and for Beyoncé, it’s her second apparel play, as she already owns the brand House of Dereon.

Sia dishes on writing sessions with Beyoncé

Klaudia//December 5, 2015
Sia Furler's forthcoming album, This Is Acting (due January 29th), has a novel concept: It's full of songs rejected by A-list artists. Furler has been successfully writing for music's biggest names, from Adele to Beyoncé, since she crossed over to writing pop music around five years ago, after solidifying herself as a Top 40 artist with her hit single "Chandelier." "I feel like they're hits, but nobody wanted them," she says of the tracks on the new LP, which have been written during the last few years. "So I thought, 'Let's see, as an experiment, if I'm right.'"

In anticipation of the album, Furler spoke in depth with Rolling Stone about pop music, her productivity and on becoming her clients' "bitch" in the studio.

What song or songs feel the most Sia to you? Which ones are you most connected with?
"One Million Bullets" is my baby. I had seller's remorse with "Bird Set Free" every time it went away and then came back. First it went to Rihanna and then it was returned. Then it went to Adele, and Adele cut it and sounded amazing on it. Then it was returned. The truth is that we wrote "Bird Set Free" for Pitch Perfect 2. They rejected it and took another song of ours called "Flashlight." That become a big thing through the movie, but I could not believe they rejected "Bird Set Free" because to me it was such a big, anthemic, fun, sing-along-in-the-car song. I felt seller's remorse. I had grief. I feel connected to that song. I feel connected to a song called "Footprints." That was a Beyoncé reject that I wrote in the Hamptons a couple years ago. I feel really connected to one song that I actually decided to leave off the album because I wanted to use it in the movie I'm directing next May. And I really like "Cheap Thrills" because I think it's fun. Those are the ones I actually feel most connected to, but the truth is I can't even remember the track listing because I've taken off songs, picked up another one so many times, I actually don't even know. I like one called "Broken Glass." That's another one, but I think that might only be a bonus track.

Beyoncé "In Talks" for Guest Appearance at Super Bowl

Klaudia//December 4, 2015
Coldplay will headline the Super Bowl 50 halftime show on February 7 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, The Wall Street Journal reports. They could have a very special guest for the show in Beyoncé, who is "in talks" to make an appearance, according to the WSJ.

Beyoncé played the Super Bowl halftime show fairly recently, headlining back in 2013. The singer is featured on "Hymn for the Weekend" from Coldplay's album A Head Full of Dreams, which is out today.

MeLo-X working on BTS clips for Beyoncé

Klaudia//December 4, 2015
MeLo-X (whose real name is Sean Rhoden) is a musician, D.J. and multimedia artist with tastemaking cred in hip-hop and the fine arts. He has collaborated with Beyoncé, including on her 2014 On the Run Tour with Jay Z. His photographs and films have been displayed at the Sean Kelly Gallery in Chelsea.

After honing his D.J. skills with amateur mixtapes, MeLo-X was hired in 2009 to be tour D.J. for Theophilus London. At the same time, he began making unauthorized remixes of albums, which he would interpret with his ambient and serrated electronic sound. His remix of Beyoncé’s 2014 album, which he called “Yoncé-X,” caught the pop star’s attention; she asked him to collaborate on her next tour. “She liked how I deconstructed the music and the way that I time-stretched her voice, pitched things down,” Melo-X said.

His collaboration with Beyoncé continues. He can’t say much, but he is working on behind-the-scenes clips and short films for Beyoncé’s YouTube channel and website. “Beyoncé is god to many,” he said. “Maybe to me, too, but I won’t let her know.”

Parkwood Topshop Athletic set to launch in spring

Klaudia//November 26, 2015
Tycoon Sir Philip Green’s Arcadia retail empire is gearing up to unveil its long-awaited fashion range with pop star Beyoncé.

The confirmation that Parkwood Topshop Athletic, a joint venture with the singer, will launch its new athletic-streetwear brand in April 2016 comes as the group posted a profit rise despite “challenging times”.

Green told the Standard the range will be sold in some 20 countries.

Chris Martin Talks Recruiting Beyonce

Klaudia//November 22, 2015
Coldplay collaborations can be a shocker (see: “Lost” featuring Jay Z and the Chris Martin and Kanye West duet "Champion"). But the four-piece British rock group are flipping the script for their forthcoming farewell album, A Head Full of Dreams.

Frontman Chris Martin recently opened up to The Wall Street Journal about the group’s track featuring Beyonce called “Hymn on the Weekend,” a song that was born out of his desire to create a club track.

“The original kernel was that I was listening to Flo Rida or something, and I thought, it’s such a shame that Coldplay could never have one of those late-night club songs, like “Turn Down for What.” What would we call it if we had one?,” said Martin.

“I thought I’d like to have a song called 'Drinks on Me' where you sit on the side of a club and buy everyone drinks because you’re so f---ing cool," he continued. "I was chuckling about that, when this melody came -- 'drinks on me, drinks on me' -- then the rest of the song came out. I presented it to the rest of the band and they said, 'We love this song, but there’s no way you can sing "drinks on me."' So that changed into 'drink from me' and the idea of having an angelic person in your life. Then that turned into asking Beyonce to sing on it.”

Beyoncé to appear on Lip Sync Battle

Klaudia//October 27, 2015
Everyone already knows Beyoncé is one hell of a singer, but now we’ll get to see if she’s one hell of a lip-syncer, too: EW has learned that Beyoncé will cameo on Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle in the battle against Channing Tatum.

Lip Sync Battle first premiered back in April, and went on to become a ratings success. That season included competitions between stars including Broad City’s Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt, and Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson.

Along with Beyoncé and Tatum, the second season will also feature a battle between Marvel actors Hayley Atwell and Clark Gregg. Although this specific episode doesn’t yet have a specific air date, the series returns for its second season in 2016.
