Beyonce! She’s just like us. Insofar as, you know, we also love In-N-Out burgers and fries and champagne (Bellinis, perhaps?). The similarities end there … but what similarities they are! Any woman who thinks to pair a serious hamburger with a sparkling wine beverage is a woman after our own heart. [Instagram]
I’m so glad we live in a world where there is not just one Knowles sister, but two, and that we are free to love both of them equally. A few months ago, I went to see Solange — that’s Beyonce’s little sis, for those of you who do not keep up with the spawn of Tina and Matthew — perform and was struck by how different these two are. Solange is a lot more understated in her singing, in her style and in her dance moves. But oh, how the crowd loves it when Basement Baby gets her groove on! While Beyonce turns out all sorts of tricks at her immense live show, all Solange has to do to get her fans screaming is snap her fingers, roll her shoulders and shimmy her hips. Click through to check out Solange’s killer moves on stage at Glastonbury Festival this weekend.
Come summertime and we’re all sticking our stems out in the sun (or most of us. Some of us are pale goth queens forevs, which also works). Case in point, Ashley Hart, Diane Kruger, Anna Paquin, Karolina Kurkova and Beyonce were all spotted out and about with some short-shorts on. From jorts to deeply beguiling leather shorts, their looks ran the gamut. But which one’s your fave? [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
Kelly Rowland — one-third of Destiny’s Child and Beyonce’s BFF — recently came out with her solo single “Dirty Laundry,” which is about the intense competitiveness that comes with being famous. In her case, that meant competing with Beyonce her whole life, both when they were in a group together and after Bey went solo. The song also delves into Rowland’s experience with a destructive and abusive relationship. “Dirty Laundry” is gorgeous and heartbreaking — so much so that Rowland herself broke down on stage while singing it at her concert in Washington, D.C. this weekend. Watch above. [via The Gloss]
Amidst rumors that she’s pregnant with her second child (Jay-Z told my boo at Hot 97, Old Man Ebro, that they’re not expecting), Beyonce gave fans a new glimpse at her first born, Blue Ivy Carter. Shown sitting in her BIC monogrammed director’s chair backstage at one of mom’s concerts, Blue’s hair has been styled into her first set of braids. Adorbs all around. [via I Am Beyonce]
Ms. magazine is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, feminist magazines in America. The mag has occasionally featured celebrities on the cover; Wonder Woman was its very first cover girl, while other cover stars include Meryl Streep, Cher, Cecily Tyson, Ani DiFranco and Pam Grier.
But the mag’s latest cover girl, Beyoncé, is causing controversy for all kinds of reasons. Keep reading »
