A year ago today (well, technically tonight/tomorrow at midnight), Beyoncé blew the Hive’s mind by dropping her super secret visual album, BEYONCÉ, without fanfare or promotion, probably because she knew it was the best thing ever. In celebration of the last year, which saw the pop star embark on both a solo tour in support of the album and a co-headlining tour with husband Jay Z, Beyonce released a 11+ minute short film on YouTube today, called “Yours and Mine.” In the film, Bey reflects on, what else, Beyoncé, and shares her thoughts on everything from feminism and motherhood to fame and marriage, all themes from her album. The film itself is full of visuals you’ll recognize from the videos that accompanied each of the tracks on BEYONCÉ, plus some never-before-seen footage, like Bey brushing her teeth. Keep reading »
Fly Art is the Tumblr brainchild of two women, Gisella and Toni, who have the art history background and pop cultural investment to be able to humorously pair classic artworks with classic hip-hop lyrics to tremendous humorous effect. Internet boutique Rad has teamed up with Fly Art to create Fly Art for Rad, a line of clothing and prints that’s basically what would happen if someone said to me, “What three things that you love can we combine and make wearable?” I’M IN LOVE, is what I’m saying.

Matthew, Danny, Andrew, Tim and Garrett – also known as Boyonce — made a kickass recreation of Beyonce’s “7/11″ video, though this one is lacking sneaky appearances from Blue Ivy and Jay. In my humble opinion, their DIY version is about as fun as it can get without being the real deal itself. Queen Bey would be proud. [Hello Giggles]
It turns out that that amazing white leather-and-gold crown Beyoncé wears in the “7/11″ video is WXYZ Jewelry, a boutique jewelry design site with pieces sold in just a few brick-and-mortar stores (Bergdorf Goodman and Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, to give you a taste). Their geometric jewelry is insanely stylish and I WANT IT ALL! Here are just a few of their extraordinary pieces…

No but really, to quote Kanye West, Beyonce really has just made one of the greatest videos of all time, and it was all seemingly filmed on an iPhone. Or it just looks that way and it was really filmed on super expensive equipment with a gang of cameramen. But I doubt it. Regardless! Bey’s video for “7/11″ is the “Where’s Waldo?” of music videos, in that you can watch it five times in a row — which, yes, I did — and still not catch every moment of glorious silliness. Beyonce running in place doing the “gotta pee” dance! Jay tumbling down the hotel hallway! Baby Blue playing on the bed while mom acts like a weirdo! Motherfuckin’ FOOOOOOOT PHONNNNNNNNNNNNNNE! Want to make sure you didn’t miss a moment? I found you some GIFs. Forty-seven to be exact… Keep reading »
