Beyoncé & Jay Z Are Renting Kim & Kanye’s Honeymoon Yacht Instead Of Going To The Wedding

Beyoncé and Jay Z are reportedly staying away from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding because they don’t want to appear on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” (and you know Kim would be all “Get Beyoncé in that shot. Get Beyoncé in that shot!“). But they’re making it up to K & K by…

John Mayer’s Acoustic Cover Of “XO” Isn’t Too Shabby

Like many members of the female population, I have some misgivings about John Mayer. I’ve pretty much lost my ability to enjoy his music for what it is without thoughts of his douchey personality tainting my experience. That said, his cover of Beyonce’s “XO” is quite nice. If you like John’s musical style, you’ll love hi…

“Tuition,” A Cover Of Beyoncé’s Song “Partition” About Student Loans, Is Beyond Real

Beyoncé may have already sung about someone “callin’ like a collector” but she’s probably never wondered “if I owe Sallie Mae or I owe the mob.” That’s what Chanel Carroll sings in her completely on point parody cover of “Partition” called (duh) “Tuition” about the loan giant Sallie Mae. Pay all my loans please, I just

Beyonce Danced On Stage With Solange At Coachella And It Was Everything

Two Knowles sisters are better than one! This weekend at the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California, Solange was joined on stage by big sister Beyonce and the two did a little dance routine straight out of their living room circa 1986. Trust that I am going to be watching this on repeat today until…

I Love You Beyonce, But I Think You Photoshopped Your Thighs In These Golfing Photos

A friend of mine just tipped me off to these latest photos Beyonce posted to her Instagram, featuring the singer, clad in sort of retro-style two-piece swimsuit, golfing on vacation. I had two thoughts: Hey, looks like her stance is pretty good! and Wow, that’s some badly Photoshopped thigh gap. Aside from the obvious, which i…

Beyonce Wants You To Own Your Sexuality, Dammit

“I’d like to believe that my music opened up that conversation. There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality. There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made u…

Mindf**k: Artist Updates Vintage Ads With Modern Day Celebrities

For the past year, Paris-based art director David Redon has been contributing a few hours a week to a unique hobby: Photoshopping modern celebrities into vintage advertisements. “I like the shift between vintage and modern pop culture,” he says, “because these days the border between art and commercial is very small, and artists work their…

Beyonce’s Alternative Video For “Grown Woman” Is For Those Of Us Who Grew Up With “Saved By The Bell,” Caboodles & Trapper Keepers

As I’m sure you know, Beyonce‘s most recent self-titled album came along with a music video for each song on the record, plus a few extra videos, including one for the song “Grown Woman.” Now an alternative video has been released for that song, and visually, it is seemingly inspired by so many of the things that…

Meet Elizabeth Raine, The 27-Year-Old Med Student Auctioning Off Her Virginity

A 27-year-old woman going by the name of “Elizabeth Raine” is auctioning off her virginity to help pay for med school … well, kind of. She says money is her motivation, but she doesn’t need the money. Her auction takes place on April 1, so it might be a big joke. [Huffington Post]…

Appalled Grandmothers Read Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love” Lyrics, I Die Laughing

You guys, I’m convinced that this video of grandmothers reading Beyonce‘s “Drunk In Love” lyrics is the eighth world wonder.  From their declaration that Bey and Jay “must have a big bath tub,” to questions about modern society (“We never talked when we had sex. What’s all this talking?”), this video is a gem of…

Listen To This Amazing Duo Cover Beyonce’s Entire Album In Five Minutes

Don’t get us wrong: we are obsessed with the Beyonce’s latest solo album and have been listening to it on repeat. But that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate a new interpretation of Bey’s amazing (ah-mah-zing) self-titled effort, like this one from YouTube performers Superfruit. The vocally gifted lads covered Beyonce’s whole album in just a few…

Beyonce Leans In, Appears In PSA To Ban The Word “Bossy”

I am decisively “meh” on Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In foundation and its focus on a feminist movement driven by/benefiting capitalism, but I can get behind their latest PSA campaign to ban the word “bossy,” as it’s frequently used to describe and diminish ambitious women. Beyonce is down with it too, appearing in the PSA above…

Emma Watson Is “Conflicted” About Beyoncé’s Feminist Credentials

“As I was watching [Beyoncé's visual album] I felt very conflicted, I felt her message felt very conflicted in the sense that on the one hand she is putting herself in a category of a feminist, but then the camera, it felt very male, such a male voyeuristic experience of her.”
Emma Watson and…

This Emoji Video For Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love” Is Strangely Moving

Call me crazy, but I found myself getting sort of emotional watching this emoji-filled video for Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love.” A lot of ink has been spilled about emojis as a medium for communication, but I’ve never really bought into it until now. I promise I’m not stoned, but seriously, the way the emojis are…

Fan Throws A Weave At Beyoncé During London Concert

Someone threw a weave (their weave? someone else’s weave?) at Beyoncé this weekend at the O2 in London while she was performing “XO.” Queen Bey, of course, took the weave attack in stride: she stopped singing for a brief moment to admonish, “You got me snatching wigs, snatching wigs!” [Global Grind]

Hey guys: Thanks to the Beyonce Soundboardt, instead of communicating feedback as regular ol’ boring Amelia, I will now be addressing you as Beyonce. If I like your blog ideas for the day?

Watch Katy B’s Sultry Cover Of “Drunk In Love” And “Vulnerable”

If you listen to the radio at all, “Drunk In Love” is probably stuck in your head on a repeating loop most days. I love it as much as the next girl, but how about giving a new rendition of the song a shot? No, Kanye’s remix doesn’t count. Katy B brought a dark, pensive…
