Bow Down, Bitches: Plus-Size Fashion Bloggers Create Their Own “***Flawless” Video

Fashion blogger GabiFresh deals with her fair share of haters. As a plus-size woman in the fashion world, getting passed over for opportunities, being judged for her size, and dealing with vicious comments about her body are par for the course. After hearing Beyonce’s song, “***Flawless,” and seeing the video, Gabi was inspired to use Bey’…

Beauty Breakdown: 7 Makeup Looks We Loved At The Met Ball (And How To Get Them!)

The clothes at last night’s fancy-pants Met Ball soiree were pretty and all, but I’m never going to be able to afford a custom-made, one-of-a-kind Lanvin dress. Not like I would have anywhere to wear it, so whatever. I — and you! — can, however, take some cues from some of the daring and stunning…

Beyonce & Jay Z Officially Announce 16-Date “On The Run” Tour

Where Brooklyn at? No, literally, where Brooklyn at? Today, Beyonce and Jay Z officially announced their 16-date co-headlining “On The Run” tour, which kicks off in Miami on June 25, but my excitement was tempered by the realization that Jayonce would be skipping what I assumed would be a guaranteed stop — Brooklyn, New York, specifically at…

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…

Two Knowles sisters are better than one!

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…
