Beyoncé Will Re-Release ‘Beyoncé’ Album With New Music and Video Footage!

Beyoncé is coming back with some new music! The singer is re-releasing her surprise 2013 album Beyoncé with some new tracks, remixes to the original songs, as well a DVD!

According to Us Weekly, Queen Bey will premiere two brand new songs on this new album called “7/11” and “Ring Off.” The album will also include four new remixes: “Flawless Remix” with Nicki Minaj, a “Drunk in Love Remix” with Kanye West and Beyonce’s husband Jay Z, a “Blow Remix” with Pharrell Williams, and a “Standing on the Sun Remix” with Mr. Vegas.

The additional DVD will feature videos of live performances from the  Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, with extra commentary Bey herself. This platinum package will also include a 2015 Beyoncé calendar as well as photo booklets.

The album, set to be released November 24, is rumored to cost $30-$35. Though I have the original album, I might end up buying this anyway. I have GOT to have that DVD with the performances! I went to the Mrs. Carter Show, and had an amazing time. To see the performances edited and dolled up will be awesome, though!

Patiently waiting until November 24!

Beyoncé Will Partner with Topshop for Athletic Streetwear Brand

Queen Bey just won’t stop! It has been announced that Beyoncé has partnered with London-based Topshop to form a joint company, Parkwood Topshop Athletic LTD. With this new partnership, a new athletic streetwear brand will be created, and could be launced in stores and online by fall 2015!

“This [is] not a collaboration. This is about building a brand and building a business — a separate, proper business, with separate overhead and a separate office,” Topshop owner Sir Philip Green told WWD in an interview. “Basically, when she was in London in February we arranged to get together. We started talking generally, about doing something together. We’ve been looking at that [athletic] sector for a while. It’s something we need to be in. Based on what she does, how she works out, the conversation got into that category. We started getting into proper conversation in May or June, as to how it would work. It took six or eight weeks to put a deal together. On Friday, Beyoncé came to our office for the last piece of the jigsaw puzzle.”

The collection will have clothing, footwear and accessories for dance, fitness and sports. It will be distributed to all Topshop stores and Topshop.com, but also other retailers such as Nordstrom hopefully. Topshop currently has 330 stores in the UK, and almost 500 worldwide. The fashion brand will open a store in New York on Nov. 5, opposite Saks Fifth Avenue. With 40,000 square feet, and four levels, this will be Topshop’s largest US store, and second-largest store in the world!

This is a great look for Beyoncé! I can’t wait to see what she comes out with in this new venture!

CELEB SPOTTING: Beyoncé and Jay-Z House Hunting in Paris

The Carters in Paris? Beyoncé and Jay Z were spotted along with daughter Blue Ivy, appearing to be house hunting near Elysee Palace in Paris.

After the end of their On The Run tour, the Carter family has been relaxing in Paris, with Bey posting pictures of them all having a good time in the city.

It’s possible that maybe this is a temporary move. Bey and Jay are rumored to be working on a joint album, and maybe, since Paris is such a special city to them, they want to record there and spend some time together as a family in the process! Paris is a beautiful city, so who could blame them?

REPORT: Beyoncé and Jay Z Working on Joint Album!

This power couple just won’t let up! Reports are circulating that Beyoncé and Jay Z are working on a joint album!

The couple is said to be in the studio, recording new music, according to Dash Radio‘s DJ Skee. No one in either star’s camp has made an announcement yet, but the album is rumored to be set for release in late 2014 or early 2014.

It only makes sense to me…they work incredibly well together! Bey and Jay have already done a bunch of hit songs together, including “’03 Bonnie and Clyde,” “Crazy In Love,” “Upgrade You,” and now, more recently, “Drunk in Love” and “Part II (On the Run).” Plus they’ve just finished co-headlining their On The Run Tour, which was a huge success! The Carters just got back from their final nights on the tour in Paris, planning to air the show this Saturday on HBO.

This will be their first full-length album together, if the reports are true. The way I see it, they can release this album, and possibly go on tour again in the summer! It would be perfect. I didn’t get to see them this go-around since I was out of the country, but, if they went on tour again, I’d be sure to snag a ticket! I’m definitely hoping that this album comes to pass.

Beyonce Tries To Stop Divorce Talk In New Instagram Photo?

beyonce

There have been rumors galore that Beyonce and Jay-Z’s marriage have been on the rocks and that the two stars are heading for the big “D”.

Instead of “speaking out” on reports, Beyonce is using social media outlet Instagram to try to make us all think that everything is okay with their marriage.

Bey sported a “Carter” jersey in honor of her husband and showed off the photo of herself on Saturday.

As Us Weekly exclusively reported,

Beyonce and Jay Z, 44, avoided each other toward the end of their final On The Run tour date. “They stayed separately in both New York and L.A. for several nights,” an insider previously told Us. Not to mention, Beyonce has been scouting out NYC apartments with “no Jay Z in sight.” On the other hand, a pal told Us the couple’s marriage is intact. “They are happy,” the insider told Us of Blue Ivy’s parents. “They have issues, like every other couple.”

Well they have been together for 29938 years. I imagine their relationship isn’t perfect. Here’s hoping they work out whatever it is they are going through.

Beyoncé Will Receive MTV Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award

It’s been rumored for quite some time that Beyoncé would be performing at the MTV Video Music Awards this year. However, according to The Wrap, MTV has confirmed that the star will also be receiving a nice award for her hard work!

Bey is set to receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, when the award show airs live from the Forum in Inglewood, California, on Sunday, Aug. 24. In addition to this award, the singer snagged eight nominations, including two of the top nods, Best Female, and Video of the Year.

The Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award is much like a Lifetime Achievement award of sorts, honoring artists that have been put in the work and time on their music and visuals. The award was renamed for the legendary King of Pop back in 1991. Michael was one of several stars that took home the award for their work. Other recipients of the award include Madonna, Peter Gabriel, R.E.M., Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake.

Obviously, as a dedicated member of the Beyhive, I’m very happy that Bey is not only performing live, but is getting an award for all that she’s done so far. She’s been in the industry for quite a while now, and is definitely deserving. I’m excited to see what she brings to the show come August 24! Is it too much to hope for another Destiny’s Child mini-reunion???

Beyoncé Implies Bieber is the Greatest, Angering Bieber Fans

Beyoncé and Jay Z made a few Beliebers a little angry on Wednesday night during a performance on their recently launched “On the Run” tour, and if I’m honest, I think their anger is misplaced. And by “they” I’m not talking about Bey.

A series of mugshots were shown with Jay Z’s “Izzo” playing in the background. And then the music stopped and Justin Bieber’s famed mugshot appeared. And then?

Then, according to the Mirror, Beyoncé stated that “Even the greatest can fall.”

Cue a rush of angry Bieber fans! Oh, the humanity! (Okay, so not all angry, as seen below)

Screen Shot 2014-06-29 at 5.51.53 PM

Okay, look- I totally get that Beyoncé and Jay Z stopped the show and gave Bieber’s mugshot emphasis. And then the pause in music was punctuated with a statement. But Beliebers! Beyoncé said “even the greatest…”

That implies Bieber is the greatest!

Not sure I’d use that to describe Bieber, but hey, it’s Beyoncé’s world and I’m just living in it. I do know that before Justin’s mugshot was shown, there were some pretty big names on the screen. And then up goes Bieber. So, not only is he in good company but Beyoncé calls him “the greatest.”

I really don’t understand what the Beliebers are so upset about. Sure, “the greatest” is followed with “fall”- implying that he has fallen? Is that what the fuss is about? Whatever it is, I’m only making the case that Beliebers should rejoice. Because whether or not is was said in jest or not, Bey called your dude “the greatest.”

And besides, Bill Gates has yet to “fall.” Not really. And he certainly didn’t in the years after this mugshot of him. Or if he has, I’d like to “fall” too, because apparently that implies I’ll “fall” into a billion dollars. And Tupac? A legend. I rest my case.

Bieber fans- step back, take a breath and with a little perspective it’s clear Beyoncé is not necessarily your enemy.

Video below!

WATCH: Beyoncé and Jay Z Kick Off On The Run Tour in Miami!

Power couple Beyoncé and Jay Z kicked off their On The Run Tour just last night at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium, and the Internet is going crazy! The Carters performed a 40-song set list (YES FORTY!)of some of their greatest hits, including collaborations with each other, like “’03 Bonnie and Clyde,” “Upgrade You,” and the latest, “Part II (On The Run).”

The couple also got personal, sharing private home videos for their fans of their secret wedding back in April 2008 as well as time spent with daughter Blue Ivy during a performance of “Forever Young” and “Halo.” Fans saw Bey’s beautiful white wedding gown and veil, as well as Jay looking rather nice in a tuxedo. The Carters also showed them getting their famous “IV” tattoos on their wedding ring fingers before the ceremony (the number four is a very significant number to them, representing Beyonce’s birthday on September 4, Jay Z’s birthday on December 4, and their wedding date, April 4), as well as the moment when Jay officially put a ring on it!

Blue Ivy was, of course, also featured, as their parents performed. “There were videos of Blue in the pool with her mom, walking holding hands with her parents, Jay Z kissing Blue,” an audience member said to Us Weekly. “It was a sweet moment — Jay Z and Beyoncé were both facing the screen watching the Blue videos while they sang ‘Halo.’ It was like they were singing the song to their baby girl. The two of them were beaming, smiling watching their little girl on the screen.” Check out some of Blue below!

The 16-date tour continues on June 28, hitting Cincinnati, OH next, and will continue on throughout July and the first week of August, before culminating in Paris on September 12 and 13.

This is going to be an AMAZING tour!

HBO Announces “Beyoncé: X10” Concert Series

Good news BeyHive! After airing her documentary, Life Is But A Dream, in February 2013, Beyoncé is heading back to HBO, this time showing off some of her most recent performances!

The network announced that it will air a 10-episode miniseries of four-minute Beyoncé concert performances starting June 29 (Think live music videos of some of Queen Bey’s most recent songs!). Titled “Beyoncé: X10,” the performances will air every Sunday night at 8:55 p.m. ET, right before True Blood, which airs its seventh and final season on June 22.

All of the clips will be from Bey’s most recent tour, the Mrs. Carter Show Would Tour. Taped performances include “Blow/Cherry,” “Drunk in Love,” “Ghost/Haunted,” “Flawless/Yonce,” “Get Me Bodied/Baby Boy/Diva,” “Girls,” “Heaven,” “Partition,” “Why Don’t You Love Me?” and “XO.”

It’s awesome, because it will be high quality instead of the YouTube videos we fans tend to record on our iPhones and low quality cameras! And, personally, since I didn’t see any of the performances from Bey’s new album live (I went to MCWT before the album was released), I’m definitely excited! Plus, it’s just a good way to keep your name out there, and keep good connections with the network. You never know what else she might do with HBO in the future!

Jay-Z and Beyonce and Solange Release Statement About Elevator Incident

spl752015-001

So by now, you have all heard about the Bey-Jay and Solange elevator incident. Well, finally after the said drama, Instagram photo deletions and the silent treatment from all parties, the trio is FINALLY speaking out. And the good news is, they are moving on and want you all to as well…anything to avoid a drama fest.

They released the following “joint” statement, “As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.”

“The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false,” the statement continued. “At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.”

Well, that’s good to know. I have a feeling there was something pretty major to happen that set Solange off though. Oh to be a fly on THAT wall.

CELEB SPOTTING: Beyoncé and Jay Z All Smiles at Basketball Game After Video of Elevator Incident Leaks

Talk about unbothered! Beyoncé and Jay Z were spotted courtside at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Monday night, not too long after video of Solange Knowles allegedly attacking Jay in an elevator was leaked!  

The couple looked like they were having a good time as the Brooklyn Nets played Miami Heat, smiling and relaxed, as if they were completely oblivious to this video coming out.

As reported yesterday, TMZ obtained footage of Solange reported swinging and kicking at Jay Z in an elevator after an afterparty after the MET Gala last week. Since the video leaked, there have been all kinds of rumors floating as to what happened to get Miss Solange all riled up that way. I think she may have just been a little too drunk personally, and something tiny may have been blown up out of proportion when that liquor got into her!

The music couple is going on with their lives as usual, obviously keeping mum about the incident. Instead, they just announced that they will be adding on a few more dates for their On The Run tour this summer, adding on Los Angeles and San Francisco on August 2 and 5.

REPORT: Solange Knowles Attacks Jay Z in Elevator

Reports are looming that Solange Knowles attacked her brother-in-law Jay Z!  TMZ obtained a surveillance video of Beyoncé‘s sister going after the rapper violently in an elevator.

According to the website, the alleged attacked happened at an after party after the Met Gala last week at the Standard Hotel in New York City.  In the video, Jay Z, Beyoncé and Knowles step into the elevator together, and Solange immediately jumps in Jay Z’s face and begins swinging and kicking!

A man, appearing to be Bey’s bodyguard Julius, tries to hold Solange back, but she manages to make contact a few times. Jay grabs her foot after she tries to kick him, but never once tries to hit her. Meanwhile, Beyoncé stands by without getting physically involved, though it looks like she does try to talk to her sister to calm the situation.

No telling what started the fight, but the three eventually did leave the building together, though Bey and Solo left in one car, and Jay Z in another. Check out the intense video below!

DRAMA! Solange does have a temper, but Jay Z had to have done something really wrong for her to attack like that. Unless she was drunk, and just made an bad altercation worse. If the Knowles sisters left out together, is it possible that Jay Z did something wrong against Beyoncé? Something like this, we can only speculate about. The private couple will probably never discuss something like this out in the open. Then again, “sources” may have been lingering and might be willing to tell the story. A story like this, some kind of details will come out soon.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z Announce On The Run Tour

It’s been speculated for weeks that music’s prime couple, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, would be going on a tour TOGETHER! Many of us called it the Mr. and Mrs. Carter Tour, but now the couple has officially announced that they will be heading out on the road this summer for the On The Run Tour! 

The tour, named after their “Part II (On the Run)” single, will start June 25 in Miami, going to major cities such as Philadelphia, Dallas, Toronto and Chicago, and wrapping up on Aug. 5 in San Francisco. The weird thing is though, is that there’s no New York dates…yet! I think that more stops will be announced later on, and I’m hoping for a D.C. stop!

Tour dates are as follows:

6/25 – Miami, FL @ Sun Life Stadium
6/28 – Cincinnati, OH @ Great American Ball Park
7/1 – Foxborough, MA @ Gillette Stadium
7/5 – Philadelphia, PA @ Citizens Bank Park
7/7 – Baltimore, MD @ M and T Bank Stadium
7/9 – Toronto, ON @ Rogers Centre
7/11 – East Rutherford, NJ @ MetLife Stadium
7/15 – Atlanta, GA @ Georgia Dome
7/18 – Houston, TX @ Minute Maid Park
7/20 – New Orleans, LA @ Mercedes-Benz Superdome
7/22 – Arlington, TX @ AT&T Stadium
7/24 – Chicago, IL @ Soldier Field
7/27 – Winnipeg, MB @ Investors Group Field
7/30 – Seattle, WA @ Safeco Field
8/2 – Pasadena, CA @ Rose Bowl
8/5 – San Francisco, CA @ AT&T Park

Exclusive tickets for the tour  go on sale Tuesday morning to members of the Beyhive, with a general sale to the public supposed to be happening Friday.

All I can say is this is going to be a MAJOR tour! I love seeing Jay and Bey’s chemistry on stage, so I can only imagine a tour with them together! I’m also hearing that tickets prices range from $45 to $250, so that’s definitely affordable to see this power couple! Hopefully they add on more later dates, though, because I’ll be out of the country on the Baltimore date (*tears*).

Beyonce is Time’s Most Influential Person

beyonce

Congratulations to Beyonce who just scored TIME Magazine‘s cover for their annual TIME 100 issue. Apparently Time feels as if Beyonce is THE most influential person in the world.

These lists are kind of funny if you ask me. Sure, Bey has star power and I do adore and respect her, but she is single-handedly the most powerful person in the world?!!

The article says, “Beyoncé doesn’t just sit at the table. She builds a better one. Today she sits at the head of the boardroom table at Parkwood Entertainment.”

The article continued, “In December, she took the world by surprise when she released a new album, complete with videos, and announced it on Facebook and Instagram. Beyoncé shattered music-industry rules — and sales records.”

She did, yes. But does that mean she rules the world? I guarantee you that the #Beyhive would definitely believe that!

Congrats Bey. You are pretty fab.
