Beyonce is awesome, yeah, yeah, but I happen to have a way bigger girl crush on her younger sister Solange. I loved her album Sol-Angel and the Hadley Street Dreams, but it didn’t get nearly as much attention as, say, Beyonce’s last outfit change. A shame, really. Well, Solange is back with a new song called “Losing You,” and it was so worth the wait. The song’s smooth, alt-pop airiness perfectly showcases Solange’s vocals, while the video, featuring Solange and her friends hanging out with Cape Town’s Gentleman of Baconogo, is just straight up stylish. I still love you Beyonce, but damn if it isn’t time for Solange to get her due.
I’m a sucker for an animated GIF, and there are few pop stars more innately GIF-able than Beyonce. Whether she’s dancing or just giving good face, I have rarely met a Beyonce GIF I wasn’t mesmerized by. Here are 15 of my favorites.
This is one of those moments where technology was used in the most appropriate way possible. Earlier this week, Jay-Z and Beyonce hosted an Obama reelection fundraiser at the 40/40 Club. Beyonce said lots of nice things about the POTUS, people drank lots of top shelf champagne and wrote fatty checks and someone snapped a picture of this moment, which was forever immortalized on Obama’s Twitter feed with the caption: “A couple of supporters in a New York state of mind last night.” I want to know what they’re talking about. Looks like the best convo ever. Not fair. But seriously, Bey and Jay need to stop taking dream life snapshots. I’m getting jealz. [WOW]
Nevermind that I’ve never heard any of the songs in this clip because I’m approximately 100 years old, all you need to know is the Snuggie Kid is back, and he is better than ever. The be-Snuggied preteen — who stole our hearts with his pitch perfect rendition of Beyonce’s “Countdown” video — returns to offer his stellar dance moves for the VMA’s “Best Choreography In A Video” award. Is that a thing? Cool, dude. [YouTube]
Baby’s first yacht vacay! Jay-Z and Beyonce’s infant daughter Blue Ivy enjoyed her first sail on the high seas — okay, they were on the Mediterranean Sea off the South of France, but still. Tres tres chic!
