New course considers Beyoncé and beyond

Klaudia//January 21, 2015
Beyoncé is coming to The University of Illinois at Chicago.

The uber-famous singer, songwriter and businesswoman will not be a featured performer at the UIC Pavilion. She’s the subject of a new spring semester course offered by gender and women’s studies.

“Beyoncé: Critical Feminist Perspectives and U.S. Black Womanhood” will use the artist’s music and career as a way to explore her attempt to be positioned as a feminist and queer figure, as well as larger issues involving media images and representations of African American women.

Course instructor Jennifer Richardson, research assistant professor of gender and women’s studies, says Beyoncé’s lyrics, wardrobe, media coverage and marriage to Jay Z, the hip-hop artist, producer and entrepreneur, offer plenty of material to explore critical perspectives of black womanhood.

“She is the subject matter to an extent, but this could really be about any black woman in media, and in the world,” said Richardson, who offered first lady Michelle Obama as another example.

“We would have the same type of tools, the same kind of critical analysis of how she is represented, who she is as a person and what that means in terms of what corporate mainstream media says about black women. It’s not just about Beyoncé.”

U.S. Troops Treated with Screenings of On the Run

Klaudia//January 7, 2015


It was a New Year's Eve to remember for approximately 2,000 troops stationed in Kuwait and Afghanistan as they were treated to USO screenings of HBO's "ON THE RUN TOUR: BEYONCÉ AND JAY Z," courtesy of the couple themselves. The USO screenings, which took place during the countdown to 2015, were attended by servicemen and women stationed at Camp Arifjan and Camp Buehring in Kuwait, and at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan. The New Year's-themed concert events kicked off with a pre-taped, heartfelt message from BEYONCÉ - who thanked troops for their service and sacrifice, and wished them (and their families back home) a happy new year. Throughout the first full week of 2015, photos, video and New Year's Day messages from troops poured into the USO reflecting the moment-filled experience.

Beyoncé & Jay Z Do Not Cameo In 'The Interview'

Klaudia//December 26, 2014
Following "This Is The End," which featured cameo appearances from Rihanna, Paul Rudd, Emma Watson and pretty much every funny actor in Hollywood -- all playing variations on themselves -- it was assumed that co-directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg would continue to play with reality in "The Interview." The comedy, which was pulled from theaters this week, is built around an entertainment interview program, "Skylark Tonight," where host Dave Skylark (James Franco) interviews a variety of celebrity guests. (During an MTV special to promote the film this summer, Franco as Skylark spoke with Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea.) And when the 210-page budget for "The Interview" leaked online this month, many famous names appeared: Jay Z, Beyoncé, Brad Pitt, Neil Patrick Harris, Zooey Deschanel, Michael Vick and even Kevin Federline, among them.

But the finished film includes none of those stars in any significant capacity, if at all. (It's possible they could appear in the background or during a brief glimpse of the "Skylark Tonight" opening credits. Having seen the film twice, however, I feel comfortable saying they're absent altogether.) In fact, only three recognizable faces appear as variations on themselves in "The Interview": Rob Lowe (who reveals he's bald), Eminem (who reveals he's gay) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who reveals he likes puppies).

Nicki Minaj Announces "Feeling Myself" As The Next Single

Klaudia//December 26, 2014
In news that should surprise absolutely no one, Nicki Minaj has selected Beyonce-featuring jam “Feeling Myself” as the next single from The Pinkprint. “Radio has really gravitated to their own songs, like I’m guessing ‘Feeling Myself’ is the next urban song,” the rap diva told Hot 97. “They picked it on their own.” It’s an absolute no-brainer given the success of their previous collaboration, “Flawless,” on urban radio and the song’s popularity on iTunes. In fact, “Feeling Myself” is currently best-selling track from The Pinkprint — even ahead of the femcee’s official new single “Only.” Listen to the interview below.

Beyoncé Earns Eighth No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs

Klaudia//December 12, 2014
In only its second week on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Beyoncé's "7/11" reaches No. 1, granting the singer her eighth chart-topping title as a solo artist.

Beyoncé is now in a three-way tie with Whitney Houston and Alicia Keys for the fourth-most No. 1s among women in the 56 years since the chart launched as a sales/airplay hybrid tally. Only Aretha Franklin (with 20 No. 1s), Janet Jackson (16), Mariah Carey (10) have more. (Gladys Knight has also accumulated 10 No. 1s, but nine of those came as part of the group Gladys Knight & The Pips.)

Beyoncé also tallied four No. 1s in 1998-2000 as part of the group Destiny's Child before reigning for the first time as a soloist with "Crazy in Love," featuring Jay Z, in 2003.

"7/11" -- one of the new songs on the deluxe reissue of Beyonce's self-titled album -- also earns the week's Streaming Gainer honors. It jumps 52 percent in domestic streams (from 7 to 11 million -- fitting, given its title) in the week ending Dec. 7, according to Nielsen Music. It leaps 12-2 on Streaming Songs, her highest appearance since "Drunk In Love," featuring Jay Z, spent four weeks atop the two-year old chart in February.

Bonus 'Beyonce' Bows on R&B/Hip-Hop Charts

Klaudia//December 5, 2014
Following a deluxe reissue of Beyonce's self-titled 2013 album, its sales soar by 713 percent to 22,000 in the week ending Nov. 30, according to Nielsen Music. It vaults 18-4 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, with Greatest Gainer honors. It's right behind Beyonce's new Beyonce (More Only) EP, which contains just the new bonus material from the deluxe album. Only opens at No. 3 with 43,000 and also tops R&B Albums. The action surrounding the new releases helps to propel the singer 31-6 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart.

Of the new Beyonce bonus tracks, "7/11" earns the highest debut on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, starting at No. 3 (her second-best entrance ever, trailing only "Drunk in Love," which bowed at No. 2 in January). Shifting 85,000 downloads in its first week, the track shoots straight to No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Songs, where it's her first No. 1.

The start of "7/11" was also powered by its video, which caught fire with viewers on YouTube following its premiere on Nov. 21. A stark contrast to the slick production of the clips from Beyonce, the irrefutably fun, and seemingly homemade, video for "7/11" has amassed 39 million global views (as of Dec. 4).

Beyonce debuts three other songs on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs from the reissue: new track "Ring Off" enters at No. 31; "Standing on the Sun (Remix)," featuring Mr. Vegas, starts at No. 45; and original album track "Blow" begins at No. 48, aided by a new remix featuring Pharrell Williams.

Meanwhile, "***Flawless" leaps 34-12 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs with Digital Gainer honors. Of its 67,000 downloads sold, 91 percent stem from a newly-released remix featuring Nicki Minaj.

Beyonce & Jay-Z to Cameo in "The Interview"

Klaudia//December 5, 2014
Seth Rogen was paid more than $8.4 million and his co-star James Franco received $6.5 million for their new film The Interview, according to a Bloomberg report, which says the figures were among a cache of sensitive documents that hackers stole from Sony Pictures Entertainment that are now being released to the press in a steady stream. The report further states that the movie, on which Rogen also served as co-director as well as one of the writers and producers, cost $44 million.

Fusion also reveals that Beyonce and Jay Z are set to cameo in the film, with each of them being paid $10,000 and given first-class plane tickets.

The Interview, a comedy in which Franco and Rogen play TV journalists who are drafted by the CIA to assassinate North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, is scheduled to open Christmas Day and has been condemned by North Korean officials, who have dubbed it an "act of war."

Beyonce's "More" EP Debuts at No. 8 on Billboard 200

Klaudia//December 4, 2014
The Billboard 200, which has long been a chart that ranked the most popular albums of the week based on pure album sales, now shifts its methodology to a multi-metric consumption model. The ranking includes on-demand streaming and digital track sales, in addition to traditional album sales, all measured by Nielsen.

This is the most substantial update to the chart's methodology since May of 1991, when Billboard first used Nielsen's point-of-sale data — SoundScan — to measure album sales.

As previously reported, the new Billboard 200 chart uses accepted industry benchmarks for digital and streaming data, where 10 digital track sales from an album is equivalent to one album sale, and 1,500 song streams from an album equates to one album sale. All of the major on-demand audio subscription services are considered, including Spotify, Beats Music, Google Play and Xbox Music.

Beyonce's new Beyonce: More Only (EP) struts in at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 with 71,000 units. The digital set includes only the new bonus material (new songs, remixes and videos) that was added to the deluxe reissue of her self-titled album. The new EP sold 43,000 albums, but also garnered 25,000 in TEA and another 3,000 in SEA.

On the Top Album Sales chart, the Beyonce: More Only (EP) launches at No. 17.

The diva's self-titled album also scoots up both lists, thanks to its expanded reissue. On the Billboard 200, Beyonce rises 199-39 (25,000 units), while on the Top Album Sales chart, it vaults 199-37 (22,000 album sales; up 713 percent).

In other chart news, Beyonce's latest single "7/11" debuts on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 18.

Beyonce And NCLA Team Up For Nail Wrap Collection

Klaudia//December 2, 2014
When it comes to Beyoncé, “you have to be prepared for the unexpected,” says the singer’s longtime manicurist Lisa Logan. As proof, this morning at 10:15, the queen of the stealth media reveal launched a well-edited selection of nail wraps in collaboration with Logan and the Los Angeles–based beauty company NCLA on Shop.Beyonce.com—this on the heels of last week’s release of two new singles and one very viral music video.

Among other things, Beyoncé certainly has nail influence—whether through her Instagrammed manicures, live performances (who could forget her chromatic fingertips at President Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration), or music videos, where she spotlighted NCLA nail art.

Pulled from Beyoncé’s work, the patterns are meant to evoke the plaid shirts she wears while power-tossing her hair in the video for “***Flawless,” the rainbow bright lights that set the Rollergirl tone in “Blow,” the sparkling Tom Ford mosaic bodysuit and fishnets she donned onstage at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, and the scrawl of her notebook including lyrics like “H-Town vicious.” With drying time removed from the equation, the press-on strips are primed for a spontaneous quick change. Because, as Logan puts it, “You can never peg what wants to wear or who she wants to be that day—you have to be able to switch it up.”

Beyonce's 7/11 Arrives on Charts

Klaudia//November 25, 2014
Beyonce's latest offering, 7/11, has debuted on the coveted Billboard charts.

Fresh off the release of "Beyonce" (the Platinum edition) and the release of its well received music video, "7/11" debuts at no.42 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart this week.

Also deemed the greatest gainer, the song's chart position is sure to soar on next week's tally considering the reception of the video, which has been watched by over 23 million viewers (on YouTube alone).
