VMA Highlight: Beyonce runs the world

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards weren’t about who opened the show—no offense to Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, or Jessie J. Instead, everyone was waiting for Queen Bey’s 16-minute performance Video Vanguard performance. And, as usual, Beyoncé did not disappoint.

Beyoncé hit the stage with shortened versions of just about every song from her latest album, from “Mine” and “Haunted” to “Drunk In Love” and “Partition.” And just when things seemed to sexy for TV, she ended the performance with an emotional tribute to her daughter, singing “Blue” before thanking all of her fans with a crowd-assisted “XO.”

Between her vocals, her dance moves, and her overall stage presence, the only way to sum up the performance was … flawless. Or as Blue Ivy put it when Jay Z brought her on stage, “Go mommy!”

HBO debuts trailer for Beyonce and Jay Z concert doc

ON-THE-RUN-BEYONCE.jpg

If “Bang Bang” isn’t the song of the summer, it’s at least the chosen song title of the summer: There’s Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, and Jessie J’s “Bang Bang,” Macy Gray’s “Bang Bang,” and now, Beyoncé’s cover of “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” by Cher and previously covered by Nancy Sinatra.

The singer serenades husband Jay Z with the cover in a new trailer for HBO’s upcoming special about the pair’s “On the Run” tour. She shoots finger guns at the rapper as she sings; he responds by dramatically blowing cigar smoke into the air. The scene is filmed in black and white, and then suddenly, we’re transported from that world into the real world of Bey and Jay: Specifically, their energetic, colorful sold-out arena shows.

Jay Z's alleged mistress disses Beyonce in 'Sorry Mrs. Carter'

Liv, a rapper who tabloids like to speculate is Jay Z’s mistress, has joined the chorus of gossip magazines and anonymous sources claiming Beyoncé and Jay Z are on the rocks by releasing “Sorry Mrs. Carter,” a song disputing the allegations but still apologizing to Beyoncé. It remains somewhat unclear what exactly she’s apologizing to Beyoncé for. Not sleeping with her husband? Jay Z’s supposed bad behavior with other women? This song’s quality, maybe?

Destiny's Child reunites (again) (sort of) -- VIDEO

michelle-williams-video.jpg

Destiny’s Child announced its breakup all the way back in 2005, but the group has made a pretty regular habit of periodically reuniting. Usually that happens when Beyoncé, Kelly, and Michelle are releasing yet another greatest hits compilation, but as we pointed out recently, the trio’s best-known lineup recently got together to record a track for Michelle Williams’ new gospel-oriented album Journey to Freedom. Michelle may not be the Child with the most successful solo career, but “Say Yes,” with its dancehall drums and light dusting of squiggly EDM synths, is worthy of summer jam status.

Williams just dropped the video for “Say Yes.” She not only got her former bandmates to appear in it, but also got Beyoncé to rock her DC-era braids again. Solange, who contributed backup vocals, doesn’t appear, though she’s still getting a lot of traction from her last video role.

Michelle Williams debuts gospel track featuring Beyonce, Solange, and Kelly Rowland -- LISTEN

Journey

Get ready to lose your breath: It’s a Destiny’s Child reunion (plus Solange tagged along!).

For Michelle Williams’ upcoming gospel album, Journey to Freedom, she brought together her favorite independent women to give her an assist on lead single “Say My Name Yes,” based on the popular Nigerian hymn. Backed by Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Solange, the upbeat track takes the inspirational lyrics and throws them over a reggae beat. Williams has performed the track for the past several months by herself, but this is the first time fans have heard it with the other voices.

In addition to the album, Williams will next be seen in the upcoming Jesus Christ Superstar arena tour, where she’ll play the role of Mary Magdalene.

This is the only Beyoncé- and Solange-related news of the last couple of weeks, so this song should be the only thing you are possibly thinking about regarding the Knowles family. Everything’s great — just two sisters who love each other hanging out with Michelle Williams + Kelly Rowland. Listen to “Say Yes” below: READ FULL STORY
