Beyonce Page 1
There are very few DJs/producers that we trust to remix our best-loved classics — especially ones that played an integral part of our childhood, like Destiny’s Child’s “Bills, Bills, Bills.”Fortunately, the 1999 anthem was put in the capable hands of Mercury Prize winner James Blake, who released the remix under his occasional guise Harmonimix.
Beyoncé is causing quite the antipodean media frenzy as she takes her Mrs. Carter tour across New Zealand and Australia.But yo, bungee jumping and tiny shoes, while we’re really happy for you, this impromptu photo shoot in the Melbourne suburb of Brunswick has produced the best reactions of all time.
Beyoncé has many physical incarnations, and next year she’ll have even more. But the most buzzed about of 2013 — even more than her power-outaging Superbowl performance — was the pixie cut/wig removal that sparked a thousand memes. Or nine of them at least.
If it were anyone other than Beyoncé, or a troop of firefighters baring all for charity, we’d find the idea of someone releasing their calendar a bit trite. But Bey is essentially the exception to all rules everywhere, so instead of being put off of by the “Me, Myself, and I” of it all, we’re entranced by her smoky smizes unrivaled curves — what else is new?
We’re reminded of how rife with good genes the Knowles family is on a near-daily basis, but that hasn’t stopped us cooking up conspiracy theories about Beyoncé and Solange being gifts from a higher power rather than possessors of real human DNA (sorry, Tina).
For anyone that isn’t Beyoncé, prom pictures are an unfortunate trip down memory lane. Sometime it’s about the awkward date, but more often than not it’s because of the hideous get-up you inexplicably thought was a good idea at the time. Fortunately for Bey, she is not mortal, and her prom snap is as stunning as ours was unfortunate.
Now, this we can’t wait to see. Get all the dish on the shoot from PopSugar Fashion.
When Beyoncé walks, she’s like a samba that swings so cool and sways so gentle… Queen Bey has gone retro as The Girl From Ipanema in the promo short for the Brazilian leg of The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. The black and white clip looks like a James Bond home movie shot on a super 8mm camera, with her traipsing around the beach, splashing in the ocean, laying in a hammock, and spelling out “BRAZIL” in the sand. All while in Ray Ban wayfarers and a tiny bikini, of course.
Instagram: Depending on your curation skills, it can be a stream of anything from duckfaces shrouded in a Valencia haze to editorial-level outfit inspiration. We like our feeds to zigzag through both, offering insight and artistry edged with #selfies and LOLs. Click through to see the ‘grams we were loving this week, including Alessandra Ambrosio’s Greek Island kaftan extravaganza, Eva Chen’s style throwback and Beyoncé’s trippy woven brights.
Yes, this weekend was V Festival 2013, but hence forth it will be known as that time Beyoncé allowed Queen Elizabeth to take five as she took sovereign reign over England with her new asymmetrical bob and repertoire of glistering onesies.

Breaking Beyoncé hair update: The pixie is over – gone. Vanished. Exited the building. But wait, you already knew that, because you are currently immersed in the constantly-churning vat of conspiracy theory otherwise known as the internet.
ICYMI, though there’s really no way you could have, Beyoncé cut all her hair off last week. We were among the hundreds of websites who made lighthearted, web-themed jest of the situation, but not even a week later we’ve pretty much forgotten about it. Until we dug up a
humorous really dumb survey that landed in our inboxes over the weekend.
When Beyoncé speaks, we listen. When Beyoncé gets photographed wearing nothing except serious statement jewelry and all of the body paint, we drop our jaws and make weird indecipherable noises. When she does both of these things before we’ve had our second cup of coffee, we are not ready for this jelly and are yet SO READY at the same time.
NOTHING is the answer to the rhetorical question posed in this amazing video of the late, great Michael Jackson and his BFFs performing What More Can I Give? back in 2001. Besides a near-comprehensive roundup of early ‘90s talent, it also features three pairs of truly spectacular patriotic pants courtesy of Destiny’s Child.
With new baby North West on the block, Blue Ivy has a fashionable reputation to uphold. Thanks to the treasure trove that is Beyoncé’s Tumblr, we can now feast our eyes on the majesty that hides in the one-year-old’s walk-in-closet of swag. And since she’s the first heir to the hip hop throne, it’s only logical that she has an iced-out crown in her closet of designer duds.
We aren’t ones to knock Oprah, but when we found out that the Forbes List of The Most Powerful Celebrities gave her the top slot over Beyoncé, we kind of thought it was blasphemy. After all, Oprah even had B as a guest on her show to ask her the million dollar question: Does Beyonce feel pressure to out-Beyoncé herself? In our eyes, this whole year has been one continuous moment for Queen B and we can give 5 solid reasons why she should have been numero uno:
At last night’s Chime For Change concert, black and white looks carried the red carpet and the stage, with shots of shimmer strung throughout. Who were they all wearing? Gucci, of course.
