A blonde Beyonce appears in a video teaser for her new single, “Grown Woman.” Beyonce is currently the face of Pepsi, so its only natural that the soft drink is featured in the teaser as well. There are shots of dance rehearsals, showing off some moves that are anticipated to be in the full length music video. A different version of “Grown Woman” was released by Kelly Rowland three years ago, but did not gain much success. Perhaps Beyonce will be able to do better with the track. Check out the teaser below!
civil rights activists believe that Beyonce and Jay’s trip was set up to be a distraction from everything that is currently going on in Cuba. The blog Bablu claims that the Carter’s were special guests of the Castro family, and that their personal bodyguards were supplied by Dictator Fidel Castro’s government as well.
As VIP guests of the Castro family, Beyonce and Jay enjoyed luxurious accommodations offered in Cuba only to foreigners. Detractors are upset because they say there is overt racism in Cuba against Cubans of African descent, and that the Castro regime supports and continues that racism. Some ask, if B and J were not foreign celebrities, would they have been treated so well by the Castros?
York Breakfast Club that he will not be working with Keyshia Cole again after her comments about Michelle (Williams) and Beyonce. Keyshia Cole responded by saying it’s not a big deal. She Tweeted “I’m on my 6th album… He’s only wrote 1 song on 1 of my albums, which I did love, God Bless.”
Kelly Rowland visited “The Big Tigger Show” radio show to talk about her fourth solo album “Talk A Good Game,” which is set to come out June 4th. Kelly also spoke about Beyonce’s “Bow Down” record which is getting some criticism for its lyrical content.
Rowland says about her album:
“I’m actually in the process of wrapping it up this
weekend. This is actually the last recording session I’ve got for this album, but I’m so excited. I’ve been in the studio with Dream. I’ve been in the studio with Harmony. I’ve been in the studio with Pharrell. I’ve been in the studio with Kevin Cossom, who is incredible. When I tell you, he is so incredible and I’m so happy I got the opportunity to work with him.”
Her comments on “Bow Down”:
“I’ve heard pieces of what she’s done. She’s heard things that I’ve recorded and I just think it scratches the surface to everything else. I think it’s a great record. It’s her expression. I think, as an artist, you can express yourself however you want to and I just can’t wait for everybody to hear the rest of the record. It is insane.”
Kelly Rowland has definitely come out to play in the fun and flirty video for her latest single “Kisses Down Low”, and has the internet buzzing. The former Destiny’s Child diva models many different looks in the vid — from pinup girl to Marilyn Monroe to red head — as she struts her stuff against the colorful backdrops. The song is hot, but the verdict is in, and what everyone is REALLY talking about are the vibrant songstress’ makeup looks created by makeup artist to the, stars Sheika Daley.
Instagram, Twitter, and especially Youtube went bananas over Sheika’s vibrant beauty look, and she understands imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. She recently told Vibe Vixen, ”It was amazing as an artist to see how much everyone enjoys my craft. To see so many make-up artists recreate this look through the tutorials on Youtube, and pictures I received off Twitter/Facebook/Instagram brings a big smile to my heart. I am really ecstatic and grateful to have fans enjoy my work and I love to see all the recreations behind it.”

Since she showed off Blue Ivy in her HBO documentary last month, it appears that Beyoncé is a lot less shy about letting the world get a peek at the adorable 1-year-old’s face. Mom and daughter were spotted leaving Buttermilk Channel in Brooklyn yesterday
Ever since their nuptials in 2008, Jay-Z and Beyoncé have been more open to the public about their relationship, often showing their love for one another through their music. Most recently, Jay raps about his wife in the remix to Kendrick Lamar’s “B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe”, “Up in the clouds, me and my spouse/Rumors on the ground gettin’ too loud,“ Awwww, hip-hop love is the best love…
Beyoncé is showing off her bikini body on the cover of the April issue of Shape. Blue Ivy’s mom, who gained 57 pounds during her pregnancy, admitted it was hard to lose the baby weight after giving birth. She also revealed to the mag the diet changes she made to get her body back, saying, “I ate a very low-calorie diet. I stayed away from red meat and ate a lot of fish, replaced pasta and rice with quinoa.”
Now that Bey is about to kick off her ‘Mrs. Carter Show World Tour’, the rehearsal schedule has brought her body to another level. She even indulges in pizza on Sundays. “I always have breakfast, say, scrambled egg whites, a vegetable smoothie, or whole-grain cereal with low-fat milk. For lunch and dinner, I eat a lot of fish and vegetables,” she said. “And throughout the day, I try to stay hydrated. I always treat myself to one meal on Sundays when I can have whatever I want. Usually it’s pizza, which is my favorite indulgence.”
The 31-year-old has less than a month before she kicks off her tour in Serbia. The April issue of Shape magazine is in stores now.
Keyshia Cole is clearly not a Destiny’s Child fan. Fresh off of dissing Michelle for her performance at the Super Bowl in February, Keyshia took a swipe at Beyoncé’s new song “Bow Down” on Monday, tweeting, “First “Women need to Stick together” now b—-es better Bow. Smh. But it’s all G! Chicks stay shooting the sh-t. But when I speak my mind its a prob. #Well #StayMad.” That last hashtag was very appropriate, because obviously, Keyshia stays mad…
Beyoncé has just released a brand new promo track called “Bow Down.” The song, which will serve as a promo track to her upcoming album, was posted on her SoundCloud and promoted on her Instagram page. Check it out and let us know what you think by leaving us a comment below.
Beyoncé is showing off her toned post-baby figure on the April 2013 issue of Shape. In her interview with the mag, the “Halo” singer revealed she gained 57 pounds while pregnant, and admitted she’s “a person who has to work” to keep her body in shape.
According to TMZ, a hacker has obtained financial information on celebrities such as Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Donald Trump, Joe Biden, and First Lady Michelle Obama. Information was posted on line about the celebrity victims, including their “social security numbers, mortgage amounts, credit card info” and more. The FBI and and various police departments, such as the LAPD and the NYPD, have all launched investigations into the case.
Kelly Rowland currently loves her skin tone, but that was not always the case. During an interview at the 2013 Essence Black Women of Hollywood event, she said, “You know what I had great women in my life to help me overcome that. I remember I went through a period where I didn’t embrace my chocolatiness. I don’t know if that’s a word, but I didn’t embrace my chocolate lifestyle. Just being a chocolate, lovely brown skin girl and being proud of that. I remember being out in the sun and I was trying to shield myself from the sun and [Beyonce’s mom Tina Knowles] said, ‘Are you crazy?’ She said ‘You are absolutely gorgeous’ and she just told me how beautiful I was and
how rare chocolate is and how gorgeous the skin is, all of this stuff. And I was just like ‘Yeah!’ Like a light went off and so and my mother had me sitting out in the sun a little more, just to be a little more chocolate.”
Beyoncé has inspired a shoe called the “King Bey” Isabel Marant Sneaker Wedge by custom design brand PMK. The shoe is made from exotic animal skins, including stingray, ostrich, calf’s fur, crocodile and anaconda. It features gold detail, which complements the white tone. What do you think of the shoe? Would you sport them?
