The universe has smiled upon me and given me not one, but two chances to see Beyonce, Queen of The World, Light of My Life this summer. When I had the opportunity to see her in Brooklyn with Amelia earlier this month, I took it. “That’s cool,” I thought. “A once in a lifetime opportunity to see Bey and find proof of whether or not she’s actually human!” Sometimes life works in mysterious little ways that I will never understand. In a remarkable turn of events, I’m headed to the Made In America festival, curated by none other than Mr. Beyonce himself, Jay Z, with Beyonce Giselle Knowles headlining tonight!
Starting at 2 p.m. today, you can check out the video above to view a livestream from the festival, featuring performances from what is basically my summer jams playlist: Beyonce, Haim, 2 Chainz, Solange, A$AP Rokcy, Kendrick Lamar, Phoenix, Emeli Sandé, and a whole slew of others. If I am not raptured a second time under the spell of Beyonce’s ever-changing hair and flawless everything, I’ll be tweeting over at @TheFrisky and posting pics of whatever strikes my fancy, including but not limited to festival fashion and Blue Ivy. Join me!
Beyonce’s life has been a bit of a Cinderella story, so it’s not surprising that her songs provide the perfect soundtrack to the classic fairy tale. In the amazing video above, from former “American Idol” contestant Todrick Hall, Cinderonce’s “Diva”-esque fairy drag-mother takes her from scrubbing floors to rocking her best “Freakum Dress” at the ball.

Color me confused. Last week, the world exploded because Beyonce seemingly chopped off all her hair (or removed her wig/weave? I don’t know) into a cute pixie cut. But today there are pictures of Beyonce with a blonde bob. What is Beyonce’s real hair like?! Does Beyonce have a room full of heads with different hairdos, just like Mombi in “Return to Oz”? (I always wanted a room full of heads like Mombi, by the way. So awesome.) [Photos: Splash News]
Beyonce: Kind of perfect in every way. She can do long hair, and, as evidenced by these new pics of her just up on her Instagram feed, she can rock a short pixie cut, too. What makes Beyonce so good at everything? We’re guessing she must have made some kind of deal with the devil. Like, maybe what nobody tells you about Bey is that she farts all the time. Like, constantly. Sure, those farts probably smell like Champagne and roses, but still.
Anyway! We are digging her new super-short ‘do. What do you think? And how quickly before Miley Cyrus declares responsibility for it?

I’m not sure why comedian and blogger Francesca “Chescaleigh” Ramsey — who you’ll remember for her “Shit White Girls Say To Black Girls” and “Olivia Pope’s ‘Scandal’ Makeup Tutorial” videos — was inspired to imitate Britney Spears covering Beyonce’s “Grown Woman,” but I’m glad she did. Uncannily hilarious. [YouTube]
