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]
See that video up there? Click that little arrow. Watch Beyonce Giselle Knowles, master of the graceful recovery and mother of America’s baby Blue Ivy, as she slays my favorite new song, “Grown Woman.” I have spent a fair amount of time watching this performance, imagining the stages leading up to my inevitable rapture if I were witnessing this live. Fancy my surprise when Amelia scored us tickets to the sold-out-forever show at Barclays Center in Brooklyn in a few weeks. Happy is too gentle a word for my emotional state. There was screaming. Disbelief. In anticipation of this momentous occasion, I have put together my dream setlist for this show, featuring a run-through of her solo hits, some deep cuts, and an extended section of Destiny’s Child/Jay-Z collabs, as an attempt to placate my persistent hope that she brings out an entire army of guest stars including but not limited to Jay-Z, Nori West and this kid from the YouTubes.
