Over the weekend, the Global Citizen Festival took place in Central Park in front of 60,000 fans. The fourth annual event, curated by Chris Martin, aims to bring awareness to global poverty in hopes of eradicating it by 2030. Once again, a star-studded lineup gathered for the great cause.

Though the event saw some other memorable surprise duets including Coldplay bringing out Ariana Grande, my favorite involved everyone’s favorite English ginger and the bodacious hair-flipping beast that is Beyonce. The two gave a killer acoustic performance of Bey’s hit, “Drunk In Love.” Sheeran has covered the track several times previously, but this time, he finally got to jam on it with Queen B herself. Check it out below.

Beyonce Joins Arrow Benjamin On New Naughty Boy Track

In: Donovan, Music

What are the chances that Lady Gaga and Beyonce drop new tracks in the same week? Well, it happened.

After teasing his collaboration with Queen Bey, Naughty Boy not only revealed the entire track but the accompanying visual as well. It’s nice to see the 30-year-old English DJ producer take a break from Twitter beefs to focus on his music ;)

Runnin’ (Lose It All)” is reportedly off his forthcoming studio album. It starts off with a simple piano arrangement before kicking it into high gear with a killer drum-and-bass beat. Bey sings the first verse before newcomer Arrow Benjamin takes over for the second. Neither singer appears in the Charlie Robins-directed clip, but it doesn’t matter. The underwear-set video is a mesmerizing watch on its own merit.

Beyonce Stuns At Made In America Festival

In: Donovan, Music

Beyonce has been relatively quiet as of late. The last time I recall the 34-year-old singer performing on stage was at this year’s Grammys. Well, Queen B made a triumphant return at this weekend’s Budweiser Made In America Festival held in Philadelphia.

Beyonce performed 23 of her hits including some from the Destiny’s Child catalog. She kicked things off with the Fifty Shades of Grey version of “Crazy In Love” and ended it with “Single Ladies.” Check out a snippet of her opening number below where she sizzles in a custom Herve Leger by Max Azria embroidered bodysuit.

Here’s another accolade for Mrs. Carter. Like she needs anymore :)

The 33-year-old singer snagged the coveted Vogue September issue cover. In doing so, she becomes the first black female artist to grace the influential issue. Overall, Beyonce is the third black female to score the September cover. Naomi Campbell and Halle Berry previously appeared on the covers in 1989 and 2010 respectively.

This marks Queen Bey’s third Vogue cover overall. She landed on both the April 2009 (left) and March 2013 (right) editions. For her latest, she’s wearing a gorgeous Marc Jacobs lace dress with wet hair. I can’t wait to see the accompanying fashion spread inside.

This year’s issue comes in at 832 pages. The 2012 edition featuring Lady Gaga holds the record for being the biggest issue with a whopping 916 pages. Check out the Mario Testino-snapped images below.

Whether you’re a card-carrying member of The BeyHive, a casual fan or can’t stand Beyonce, I dare you not to shake your booty to the 33-year-old’s music when it comes on. It’s almost an uncontrollable reflex to whip that hand up when one hears “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” Right?

It’s no secret that Laverne Cox is a humungous fan of Beyonce. Who could forget her living it up at the MTV VMAs a couple years back during Bey’s unforgettable performance? The Orange Is The New Black actress shows off her best impression of her idol for Nylon magazine. Watch Laverne hair flip below, along with shake her hips and execute other signature Queen B moves.

Is Beyonce Joining NBC’s The Wiz?

In: Donovan, TV Shows

NBC is really on a mission to make The Wiz Live! a star-studded spectacle. On the heels of Mary J. Blige and Queen Latifah joining the cast, comes news of an even bigger star possibly heading down the yellow brick road.

E! News reports that Beyonce has been offered the role of Glinda The Good Witch. If the peacock network is somehow able to make this happen, it would be epic. This would be a huge coup for the live production.

Jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater and legendary singer Lena Horne played the part in the Broadway and feature film respectively. Queen B would definitely be in fine company.

If Bey isn’t interested or the powers-that-be don’t shell out enough cash, another actress is reportedly being considered for the role. Find out who below.

Beyonce’s 4 era was highly-underrated.The highest-charting single off that album was “Best Thing I Never Had” which peaked at No. 16. Following up her commercially and critically-acclaimed I Am… Sasha Fierce album was a monumental task, even for Queen B.

I’m not a hardcore card-carrying member of the BeyHive but I enjoy listening to “Love on Top,” “End of Time” and “Run the World (Girls)” more today than when they were first initially released. Like wine, the tracks have aged quite nicely.

I utterly hated “Run the World (Girls)” when I first heard it, but now think it’s one of Bey’s finest moments. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed watching numerous dance tributes to the female empowering anthem. This recent one featuring Larsen Thompson and Taylor Hatala is one of the fiercest. These girls can daaaaaaance. Watch them slay the choreography below and literally walk over men in the corporate world.

Without a doubt, Taylor Swift dominated the past year. It’s no surprise that MTV bestowed the 25-year-old singer with a showering of VMA nominations. Swift leads the pack with a whopping nine nominations. For me, it’s shocking that her “Bad Blood” visual scored more nods than her much superior “Blank Space” video, including Video of the Year. Love “Blank Space.”

Taylor faces off against Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars (“Uptown Funk”), Kendrick Lamar (“Alright”), Ed Sheeran (“Thinking Out Loud”) and Beyonce (“7/11″) for the big prize. Speaking of Sheeran and Queen Bey, they also snatched a sizeable amount of nominations- six and five respectively.

The 2015 MTV VMA nomination unveiling comes on the heels that Miley Cyrus is hosting this year’s festivities. Be sure to watch the show on August 20 on MTV. Like always, I’m sure the irreverent awards show will provide some watercooler chatter material, especially with Cyrus hosting. Check out the full nominations list below.
