Solange Celebrates 30th Birthday in New Mexico, with Friends & Family, Including Beyoncé


Solange Knowles rang in her 30th birthday in a tiny town in New Mexico, according to TMZ.

Solange, along with 12 friends and family members, spent the weekend in itty-bitty San Patricio, on a 2,200 acre ranch.

Bey and Jay flew in for the night. The low-key shindig featured a pool party and New Orleans-style catering, and reportedly, Domino’s pizza.

To burn off the calories, Solange and her crew took a walk through the amazing White Sands National Monument.

In a post on Instagram, where she reflected on her life and career, the singer/songwriter revealed that she just recently finished her new album. “Completed 4th album (72 hours before turning 30),” she wrote.

Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar Open BET Awards with “Freedom”

Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar BET Awards

BET had the biggest surprise up their sleeve for the opening of the 2016 BET Awards on Sunday night.

Kicking off the show with none-other than Beyoncé, they set a powerful message for the evening, with an updated version of her Kendrick Lamar-assisted song “Freedom,” off Lemonade.

As her backup dancers strutted down the aisles to the sound of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, Queen Bey stood perched on the stage in an ankle-deep pool of water while fire erupted behind her. “I’ma wade, I’ma wave through the waters,” she sang, kicking up waves as she hit choreography with her crew.

Keeping the surprises coming, Kendrick Lamar popped up at the front of the stage to spit a new verse on the commanding cut. “Revolution televised, hoping that you see the sign / Meet me at the finish line, 40 acres give me mine,” he rapped, joining the singer in the pool to face each other and wild out.

Watch their epic performance below.

Watch: Beyoncé Releases Official “Sorry” Video


While most have already experienced Beyoncé‘s Lemonade visual, the singer has now given the female anthem “Sorry,” a worldwide video release.

Bey narrates the opening of the visuals as she asks, “So what are you going to say at my funeral, now that you’ve killed me? ‘Here lies the body of the love of my life, who’s heart I broke without a gun to my head. Here lies the mother of my children, both living and dead. Rest in peace my true love, who I took for granted, most bomb p*ssy. Who because of me, sleep evaded, her shroud is loneliness, her God was listening. Her heaven will be a love without betrayal.’ Ashes to ashes…dust to side chicks.”

The Queen’s powerful words echoed into the bombing sounds of the records beat, as the cameras travel into a southern mansion and find tennis star Serena Williams dancing and turnin’ up in the hallways. Bey and her face-painted troupe of dancers bring more empowering energy while riding a bus, as she sings the now famous line, “Tell ’em boy bye!”

The track also features the infamous “Becky with the good hair” lyric that sent BeyHive members on a search for who the line might’ve been about. Since then, Rita Ora and designer Rachel Roy have denied being the mysterious Becky.

Since the song and much of the album is rumored to be about Jay Z’s alleged infidelity, talk has even turned to Hov possibly making a response album. There have also been rumors of a joint project that addresses the Carters’ marriage.

Despite the song’s ferocious lyrics, things are just fine with Hov and Bey. The couple and their daughter were recently vacationing in Hawaii, before they take the “Formation World Tour” to Europe.

Check out the YouTube release of “Sorry” below.

Beyoncé, JAY Z, and Blue Ivy Vacation in Hawaii


Beyoncé is getting in some welcomed relaxation. The singer took some much-needed time off with her family while on a break from the “Formation World Tour.”

Mrs. Carter shared images from a recent Hawaii vacation, featuring Jay Z and their daughter, Blue Ivy. The parents looked happy on the beach, kissing and sipping Ace of Spades, while their 4-year-old baby girl played in the sand.

Of course, Bey also made waves with her fashion. In the photos, she’s donning LEMONADE-inspired accessories, including a Dolce&Gabbana headband and necklace.

The Carters also enjoyed a bike ride through paradise. Bey pedaled in style in a hat and colorful dress and Jay Z kept it gangsta with a bandana around his mouth, while Blue Ivy rode in the seat behind him.

She might be enjoying some down time, but Queen Bey is back on the road next week. On June 28, the European leg of her tour kicks off at Stadium of Light in Sunderland, England. She will be touring through Europe until Aug. 3 before returning to the U.S. in September.
