Beyonce spent the weekend entertaining fans — including our girl Megan — at hubby Jay Z’s Made In America Festival in Philadelphia, then immediately jetted off to Ibiza for a little rest and relaxation. Here she is boarding a yacht with baby Blue Ivy, wearing what I assume is the bottom half of her performing outfit. Girl, get yourself some Havaianas! [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
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]
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. Check it out after the jump! Keep reading »
And this is why Beyonce is better than all of us. In the midst of belting out “Halo” during her concert last night, Bey’s hair — which Megan and I think is likely the world’s priciest wig — got stuck in the fan behind her. And she just kept on singing
while fans assisted in untangling her locks. And, if that was rock star enough, Beyonce also posted video
of the incident to her Instagram and
wrote funny new lyrics for “Halo” about it, because she don’t give an eff. Check out the lyrics after the jump! (Buzzfeed
‘s got a funny GIF too.) Keep reading »
As made clear by this photo of Blue Ivy and Beyoncé at the beach, Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s first crack at procreation turned out really adorable. Now 18 months old, Blue Ivy has been making more and more appearances, the best of which are showing up on Beyoncé’s official Tumblr. In a recent interview on Hot 97, DJ Angie Martinez asked Jay-Z if he would like to have more kids. His response? “Absolutely, God willing.” Jay-Z also recently founded a new sports agency, Roc Nation Sports, and he went on to joke that he wants to make his own “little basketball team” with Queen Bey. Sounds awesome, as long as he turns out to be a better parent-turned-agent than Kris Jenner. [Us Weekly]
