So, we finally have Beyoncé’s statement on that infamous elevator fight between her sister Solange and hubby Jay Z: “Of course sometimes s— goes down when it’s a billion dollars on an elevator,” Beyoncé sings on a just-released “Flawless” remix featuring Nicki Minaj.

Beyoncé and Jay Z’s multi-platform pop-culture domination continues — it has just been announced that their first joint tour, On the Run, will debut in September and air exclusively on HBO. The duo will perform more than 40 songs in the special.
The taping will take place on September 12 and 13 at the Stade de France in Paris, On the Run’s sole international stop. The tour began in Miami’s Sun Life Stadium on June 25 and ends with the two-night stand Paris on September 13.
The two are no strangers to HBO: Beyoncé’s Mrs. Carter World Tour is currently being broadcast as a 10-episode series of concert performances, BEYONCÉ:X10, and in February 2013 she was seen in the feature-length documentary, Life Is But a Dream. Additionally, Jay Z’s Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film premiered in August 2013.
HBO has announced that Beyoncé, who released her documentary Life Is But A Dream on HBO in February 2013, will return to the network for a series of four-minute excerpts from her Mrs. Carter World Tour. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series, titled Beyoncé: X10, will air segments on Sunday evenings at 8:55 ET/PT, leading into the seventh and final season of True Blood, which airs immediately after.
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.
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

Bon Jovi not only has the year’s top tour, but the rock band has achieved a career high.
The New Jersey-based act’s worldwide tour grossed $259.5 million this year, topping Pollstar’s annual top 20 list and setting a record for the band itself.
Beyoncé is second with $188.6 million. She ended her tour last week in Brooklyn. Pink, Justin Bieber, and Bruce Springsteen round out the top five.
The global concert business scored a record year with the top 20 tours, earning $2.43 billion in primary ticket sales. It generated $1.96 billion last year.
The top 20 list also included Taylor Swift, Elton John, Rihanna, Depeche Mode and One Direction. The Rolling Stones’ comeback tour ranked twelfth, a notch under Paul McCartney.
There’s no need to let post-holiday blues get you down — not when Beyoncé has given us all yet another visual present. (Technically, the clip was released Dec. 25 — but you spent that day spending time with friends and family instead of trolling the Internet for new Beyoncé videos, right? Riiight?)
This latest clip is the third installment in Bey’s introspective “mini art feature” “Self-Titled,” which goes behind the scenes of the diva’s record-breaking surprise album — er, “details Beyoncé’s mind-set and artistic vision throughout the making of the entire project.”
Part 3, “Run ‘N Gun,” focuses on a trio of tracks: “Drunk on Love,” the one about how great it is to share a marital bed with Jay-Z; “No Angel,” which boasts a gritty video shot in Houston’s Third and Fourth Wards; and “Yoncé,” the one about Queen B’s fiercer-than-Sasha-Fierce new alter ego. Beyoncé also uses it to explain her whole album’s general aura and strategy: “It’s been interesting the last few videos — we’ve been like, deciding what we’re going to do as we’re there,” she says. “And there’s something about that freedom that is different for me, ’cause I usually plan things. I’m trying to rebel against perfection.”
See the rebellion — plus Beyoncé stalking across a beach at night wearing a bathing suit and carrying a trophy, as you do — below.
