Beyonce is set to drop her live DVD special "Live At Roseland" on November 21. Filmed over four nights in August, the special will take fans right inside the venue for B's intimate string of sold out shows in New York City. Not many had the chance to see it for themselves, so this is a nice holiday treat from the expectant singer.
We got the chance to be there (you're so jealous, aren't you?) and since the night remains ingrained on our memories forever, we decided to share the few moments you should be most excited to see once it drops. Read More...
Beyonce dropped her candy-coated, trailer park party-themed video for "Party" last night, and while she switched out Andre 3000 for J. Cole, we have to say the cheeky clip didn't disappoint.
Beyonce kicked off her 4 era with the hard, dystopian video for "Run The World (Girls)" but her more recent clips for "Love on Top," "Countdown" and now "Party" have proven more lighthearted and fun. In "party," the colorful couture fashions, the summer BBQ vibe and the celeb cameos (hey there Solange and Kelly Rowland! But, wait, where are you Kanye?) really recall the summery vibe of R&B videos from the '90s. Its' happy! It's sexy! It's cool! … It's crazy, sexy, cool. See what we did there? Shout out to TLC.
While much of Beyonce's Alan Ferguson-directed "Party" video is certainly a big, well, par-tay, the key scene really comes close to the end of the video. What stands out most to us is when her Destiny's Child sibling Kelly Rowland appears, dancing side by side with her bestie. Sure, B's real sister is also in the clip doing her downtown hipster DJ thing, but there's something really cool about seeing Kells and B chilling out, looking ghetto chic and having a laugh with one another.
In the world of music, we already know that one of the biggest releases of 2012 isn't an album, but Baby Bey who is supposed to drop sometime in February. What can proud parents Beyonce and Jay-Z buy for their bundle of joy? Apparently a lot of square footage.
Our pals at Buzzworthy brought our attention to an Us Magazine story stating that sources are estimating that the infant will be residing in a 2,200 square foot nursery. More Details on the Nursery From Buzzworthy >>>
If you believe that, you'd have to close your eyes and imagine that the bundle of joy would be tucked away in enough square footage to become a lovely home.
Peaking at floor plans on ThePlanCollection.com, we found some places we'd move into today that would be dwarfed by just the nursery alone. Read More...
New candid, behind-the-scenes footage of Beyonce chilling out with a man named Frank (most likely her choreographer, Frank Gatson Jr.) hit the Internet this week and it's causing a bit of a stir.
In the clip, Bey says, "Nobody's gonna want us to go to their shows, Frank, cause we're gonna take everything." When Frank points out that everyone borrows from each other in pop culture, Beyonce continues, "Everybody does. But we go and meet everybody and say, 'Hey, great show,' and then steal." The video then ends as she trails off with her head in her hands, giggling.
There's been minor controversy surrounding Bey's videos for "Love On Top" and "Countdown," with some arguing they borrow heavily from other videos and art pieces. With that in mind, fans might be wondering what this little off-the-cuff conversation might mean. To be clear, we have no idea what the context of this conversation was or where this video came from, so it's difficult to really boil down what point she's trying to make. Regardless, it's out in the world and we wanted to share it with you and see what you have to say about it.
Let us know what you think by voting below.
Watch the videos for "Love on top" and "Countdown," after the jump.
Beyonce famously declared her alter ego to be Sasha Fierce, so we're not too surprised to read that she's not feeling any anxiety about becoming a first-time mom. The always sassy momma-to-be opened up about being preggers in a new interview.
With her baby expected to enter the world in the New Year, this former Single Lady explains that, for her, becoming a mom was all about timing.
"It's going really well, I am so happy with everything right now. I am not nervous because I know it's happening at the right time," she told New Magazine, via Press Party. "I felt I got married at the right time for me, and now we are having the baby at the right time."
So while 4 might be her lucky life number, it seems 30 is just right number and age to become a mom. "I feel like we didn't rush anything," she added. "And now we are being blessed with everything naturally." Read More...
There are a slew of new music videos debuting this week. Beyonce kicked things off when she dropped her video for "Love On Top," an ode to all things '80s and boy bands. We would be perfectly excited if Beyonce was the only superstar releasing a new clip.
But, of course, she's not.
Who else is gifting us with new videos this week? Well, some rather major artists are getting their premiere on this week. Justin Bieber will drop his holiday-themed video for "Mistletoe" on Tuesday and both Britney Spears and Rihanna are set to also premiere new videos this week (exact days are for Brit and RiRi's highly anticipated clips have not yet been announced).
Brit Brit will get her bad girl on, alongside real life love Jason Trawick, in the Chris Marrs Piliero-directed video for "Criminal," and Rihanna takes us to Belfast for her clip for the Talk That Talk track "We Found Love."
We're excited for all these videos, so picking the one we're most excited for has become a huge dilemma. So, we're turning it over to you guys...
Beyonce, who has normally kept mum on the details of her personal life, isn't shy about her pregnancy in the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar.
"It was important to me that I gave myself time to focus on becoming the woman I want to be, building my empire, my relationship, and my self-worth, before I became a mother," the star tells Harper's. "Now God has blessed us with the ultimate."
Beyonce and Jay-Z have been on the receiving end of baby rumors for years, so when the time came to announce it to the world -- at our own VMAs in August -- Knowles was going to make sure the reveal was picture perfect. "I put a lot of thought into how I wanted to unveil it. It was important to me that I was able to do it myself," she says of rubbing her bump on the red carpet in an orange Lanvin gown. "I was extremely nervous. It was the toughest red carpet I ever did. I decided to say nothing and proudly show my baby bump. I felt it was more powerful to see the love and enthusiasm as opposed to saying anything." More From Beyonce's Now-Historic Pregnancy Reveal >>> Read More...
Beyonce's “Countdown” video shows the many sides of the eccentric and eclectic pop star: funny, stylish, happy, manic, sexy and pop culturally savvy.
With references to 60’s icons like Andy Warhol, Twiggy, Audrey Hepburn, Diana Ross, Brigitte Bardot, and even nods to “West Side Story,” it’s clear that Mamma B wanted to take her fans on a trip back in time.
Co-directed with Adria Petty, the clip is drenched in vintage-hued colors and retro clothes as the singer dances around various setups that not only pay homage to the '60s but also the '80s and '90s thanks to a good dash of “Fame,” “Flashdance” and even En Vogue thrown in for good measure. Beyonce looks characteristically flawless in varying degrees of pregnant. The video is the latest entry into the already iconic videography of the 30-year-old.
While much of it is memorable and eye-catching, the key scene comes at the 1:58 mark when a sassy, posin’ Beyonce army pans across the screen, putting into perspective all those aforementioned sides. She sashays, shimmies, swaggers and is generally sexy in her pop art dance studio. The scene really sums up that Beyonce is the sum of many super cool parts.

Over the course of her career, Beyonce has rocked every look possible. She's been super tough, super girlie, rocker chic and hip-hop chic. She's gone futuristic and even traveled back in time.
Her new video for "Countdown" falls into the latter category, with its '60s mod styling. In it, she rocks Audrey Hepburn bangs, Twiggy-fied color blocking and hats that would look great in French New Wave films. Of course, this is only the latest incarnation of the pop superstar. And we have to say we're loving it.
