In 2014, news broke that Beyoncé would be taking on the world again as she joined forces with UK apparel and accessory brand, Topshop, to bring about the follow-up to the early ’00s House of Deréon line that she created with her mother – Tina Knowles.

President Obama, Blue Ivy, and Beyoncé are among the featured guests on Coldplay’s new album A Head Full of Dreams. Queen Bey appears on a track called “Hymn for the Weekend,” a song that was inspired by the club.
“The original kernel was that I was listening to Flo Rida or something, and I thought, it’s such a shame that Coldplay could never have one of those late-night club songs, like ‘Turn Down for What.’ What would we call it if we had one?” Chris Martin told The Wall Street Journal.
Blue Ivy also lends her vocals as part of a choir consisting of family and friends, and Barack Obama’s rendition of “Amazing Grace” is sampled on “Kaleidoscope.”
Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams is due Dec. 4. Listen to a snippet of “Hymn for the Weekend” below.

Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj have been having a ball together, first in the music video for “Feeling Myself” and then on stage at the TIDAL X: 1020 concert in Brooklyn last week. Now Bey has put her own spin on Prince’s classic “Darling Nicki” as a tribute to her pal, who she hails as the “rap queen.”
“I met this girl named Nicki, I guess you could say she was the rap queen,” sings Bey in the black-and-white rehearsal clip. “I met her in the studio lobby, but her booty looked bigger in the magazines.”
She continues, “She said, Bey will you jump on this song of mine? How could I resist when I heard little Nicki rhyme?”
A flattered Nicki responded, tweeting, “Bey has spoken 👸🏽👸🏽👑👑💞💕💖 #RapQueen #QueenBey my #bayBey 😊 Still have the #Tidal kisses to all my QUEENS.”
The BFFs have also shared some candid footage from rehearsals for their TIDAL show. Bey challenges Nicki to “ice grill” her for as long as she can and the first one who cracks a smile loses. Watch the clips below:
Halloween came early during Ciara’s 30th birthday party at the Warner Bros. lot in Los Angeles on Saturday night.
To celebrate the big 3-0, Ciara threw a super hero-themed birthday bash, and one of the biggest surprises was Beyoncé showing up in a stunning costume of the weather-manipulating Storm from X-Men.
The world got a glimpse of the outfit in a photo of Bey posing with comedian Jeff Dye, who was the Punisher.
Meanwhile, the birthday girl chose a skin-tight Catwoman costume while her boyfriend Russell Wilson naturally dressed as Batman. The couple took it a step further by showing up to the party in the Batmobile. Ciara was also joined by BFF LaLa Anthony, Kelly Rowland, and Serena Williams, and shared a kiss with Wilson as guests sang “Happy Birthday.”

Following sets from Jay Z, Usher, and Lil Wayne, Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj came together for a rare performance at ‘TIDAL X: 1020’ at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Tuesday.
The crowd went wild when Queen Bey joined Nicki on stage for “Feeling Myself,” with her army of pink-clad dancers. As Nicki spit her bars, Bey busted out some sexy moves. They struck a pose with their backs to each other before both squads performed over Travis Scott’s “Antidote” beat, ending with a four-finger handshake and a hug.
Watch the ladies perform the song together for the first time below:
Now we really miss summer, thanks BEAT!
As expected, Beyoncé stuns in her brand new photoshoot for the cover of BEAT magazine. Following the teaser last week, the full spread has now been unveiled, and Bey certainly makes America look beautiful!
Photographed by Ryan McGinley in the Hamptons, the superstar singer holds a chicken while draped in the American flag, rocks a rainbow-colored swimsuit, and sets off an explosion of fireworks in a pool of water.
She gave a brief interview to the magazine. When asked what Beyoncé era she’d dress as for Halloween, she replied, “Destiny’s Child Survivor era with the army fatigues. Or maybe ‘Bootylicious’ with the gold tooth and pink tips in my hair.”
During the Q&A, she also revealed what she sings in the shower (“Holy Ghost” by Kim Burrell), the last song that got stuck in her head (Fetty Wap’s “Jugg”), and what she puts on her pizza (Extra tomato sauce and jalapeños).
