Beyonce and Jay-Z are in Paris right now, doing god knows what to be so fabulous (wearing that adorable polka dot dress is a start. LOVE IT). Bey, J and little Blue Ivy enjoyed lunch at Loulou restaurant in the Tuileries’s garden yesterday looking very summery and fun.
Coming off of Lemonade, the Carters are looking like the first family of wholesome. Or hey, maybe they’re celebrating all the VMA noms #Lemonade is getting?
Beyonce may run the world, but her mom calls the shots, sometimes.
According to mom Tina Knowles, even on her wedding day Beyoncé ended up in a gown she wasn’t totally delighted by, but she was too nice to tell the designer, AKA TINA. Which is kind of sweet on one hand, but sad on the other. I don’t know what gave Tina so much fashion clout- all her Destiny’s Child costumes were hideous and House of Dereon? Is that even a thing anymore? People reports:
While the rest of the world clamors over any glimpse they can get of the dress Bey wore on her big day, from the sound of things, the pop star is so over it. Though she married Jay Z in 2008, dress details were kept under wraps until the 2011 video for “I Was Here,” which gave fans a quick glimpse of the star’s elaborately tiered and ruffled strapless gown. Lawson can be seen doing some last minute alterations to the dress she designed as Beyoncé beams at the camera. (She shared another peek at it in the “Young Forever/Halo” video, which you can see at 2:34 below.)
Talking to the Today show on June 24 about designing her daughter’s gown, Lawson said, “She was so sweet to let me do that. She came back later one day and she said, ‘You know, when my daughter gets married, I’m going to let her pick out her own dress.’ Maybe she wasn’t so excited about it at the time, but she’s a sweetheart.”
Maybe when you’re Beyonce and you wear awesome stuff all the time, one wedding dress isn’t a big deal? Or she just care more about her mom’s happiness than her own? Either way, poor, sweet Bey. At least she looks great in pretty much everything.
Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar killed it when they opened the 2016 BET Awards on Sunday, June 26, with a powerful rendition of Bey’s song “Freedom.”
The performance featured a giant lap pool à la the setup she uses on the runway of her Formation World Tour, AND a black patterned leotard, so you know it was fierce. Adding to the impact was a cameo by Kendrick, who also does not disappoint.
And the results? Beyoncé took home a slew of BET Awards, including Video of the Year, Best Female R&B/Rap Artist, Viewer’s Choice and BET Centric Award. Lamar was also nominated for Video of the Year for “Alright,” in addition to Best Male Hip-Hop Artist. I mean, OBVI.

Wow, Beyoncé and Flint, Michigan are eternally linked. Weird, right?
Living up to her promise to help Flint as its residents deal with the city’s lead-tainted water supply, Beyoncé has presented the United Way of Genesee County with a check for $82,234. DANG.
Funds were raised by members of the Beyhive who chose to contribute to the cause while purchasing tickets to see Beyonce perform live, and the news couldn’t have come at a better time: the Formation World Tour stops at Ford Field TODAY. Detroit is one of three cities on the tour featuring a “signature charity event” component, and I’m sure everyone felt good when that sweet cash was handed over.
In addition to fundraising, 14 Detroit-area high school students were selected to receive tickets to the show and “college gifts” to assist with their educational expenses.
Beyonce, if anyone deserves a key to the city, you do (especially now that the water’s going to be cleaner).
