Watch Beyoncé Pay Tribute to Shawty Lo in Atlanta


Beyoncé honors rapper Shawty Lo.

During her “Formation World Tour” stop in Lo’s hometown Atlanta on Monday (Sept. 26), Queen Bey offered a nod to the late D4L MC, who died last week in a car accident.

At one point in her set, Yoncé blended her “Diva” anthem with Shawy’s solo hit “Dey Know.” After her routine, Bey kissed her hand and pointed at the sky.

Prior to the show, Jeezy and DJ Khaled performed “Dey Know” in honor of Lo too.

With three more stops (Philadelphia, Nashville, and East Rutherford), Beyoncé’s “Formation World Tour” is almost over as it comes to a close on Oct. 7.

Miguel Remixes Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” for ‘Fifty Shades Darker’


Fifty Shades is getting much darker!

The sequel to the Fifty Shades of Grey movie is coming out in time for Valentine’s Day 2017, and the first trailer has been released.

Titled Fifty Shades Darker, the anticipated follow-up to the risque, provocative film is expected to build on the original’s provoking soundtrack, which featured the likes of The Weeknd and Beyoncé. In fact, the reworked version of Queen Bey’s “Crazy In Love” has been remixed for the new film, this time by Miguel!

Offering a similarly slowed down, seductive rendition of Beyoncé’s 2015 version, the R&B maverick adds another level of sexy with his raw vocal over piano keys.

“You got me looking so crazy right now,” he coos as the trailer builds suspense. “Your love’s got me looking so crazy right now.”

Fifty Shades Darker is due in theaters Feb. 14, 2017. Check out the preview of Miguel’s “Crazy in Love” below.

While being interviewed by MTV, Beyoncé came up behind him, causing him to fan out with excitement.

Chance was warning Drake that he was “coming for [his] muscles” when Bey popped up, smiling at the camera and resting her chin on his shoulder. When Chance realized who was interview bombing him, he was shocked.

“Oh my God, that was Beyoncé!,” he said.

Notorious for avoiding interviews, a smiling Queen Bey briefly said hello and praised MTV’s host Meredith Graves on her tattoos. But before long, she was gone, leaving Chance full of joy, yelling “This my life!”

Beyoncé Performs Outstanding ‘LEMONADE’ Medley at VMAs


Like everything she ever does, Beyoncé ran the MTV VMAs on Sunday night.

The rumors of her surprise performance came true with an outstanding 15-minute medley of songs off her award-winning album Lemonade, which already nabbed the Breakthrough Long-Form Video Award earlier in the night.

Tennis star Serena Williams introduced Bey, giving her the highest praise. “She dropped an earth-shaking visual album with an appearance by yours truly,” she said, referring to her cameo in “Sorry.” “Give it up to my friend, Beyoncé!”

Emerging in a full length white coat draped down her body, she opened with “Pray You Catch Me,” but quickly switched up the somber mood and her outfit for “Hold Up.” As she made her way through the audience, she grabbed a bat and went off on the camera, smacking it and cracking the lens. Blue and red lights flashed across her face as she finally transitioned to “Sorry,” where she manned the stage, grinding with a big smile across her face.

Bey wrapped it up by putting a red-splotched Dalmatian fur around herself for “Don’t Hurt Yourself,” where she spun the camera around and headed to the main stage where fireworks and smoke crashed all around her. She capped off the epic performance with the song that started it all, “Formation,” while a line-dance of black-clad dancers did synchronized moves on the floor, ending up in the shape of a female gender symbol.

Report: Beyoncé To Perform at MTV VMAs


More Beyoncé surprises are on the way — so it seems.

The Beyhive can get ready for another award show takeover, if a new report by the Los Angeles Times is accurate, which claims Queen Bey “has been in top-secret rehearsals” leading up to Sunday’s show. Earlier this summer, Beyoncé surprised fans with an outstanding opening performance of “Freedom” featuring Kendrick Lamar at the BET Awards.

Whether she performs or not, Beyoncé will likely be a hot topic all night. She’s a frontrunner this year with 11 nominations for her work on LEMONADE.

Expected performers already include Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Nick Jonas, Future, Ty Dolla $ign, Britney Spears and more. Rihanna will also perform and be honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
