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
beyonce-the-wiz

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.

run-the-world-dance-tribute

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.

2015-vmas-nominations

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.

Numerous fans felt a little gypped by the original edit of “Bitch I’m Madonna.” With all the marquee names participating, I, like many, assumed Beyonce, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus would’ve been featured more than just a couple of seconds in the Jonas Akerlund-directed clip. Pretty much all they did was lip sync just one line. Does her new visual rectify that faux pas?

Madonna ditches the partygoers and her Asian lady backup dancers in the Sander Kleinenberg remix video edit. Instead, the 56-year-old icon is shown gyrating and hair flipping in a room solo while grainy footage of Kanye West, Rita Ora, Chris Rock, Diplo, Nicki Minaj and the aforementioned names are edited in between. The cameos are a bit longer but not by much. Check out the video remix edit below.

Who knew Aussies were such hardcore members of The Hive? At least a select few in Melbourne are. You know you’ve made it when a skyscraper is built in your honor, right?

The city just approved a plan by Australian firm Elenberg Fraser to erect a 226-metre-high skyscraper inspired by Beyonce’s silhouette. Specifically, when the 33-year-old singer is wrapped in fabric during her “Ghost” music video.

“For those more on the art than science side, we will reveal that the form does pay homage to something more aesthetic – we’re going to trust you’ve seen the music video for Beyoncé’s Ghost,” Elenberg Fraser stated.

Premiere Tower will be a 68-storey structure that will contain 660 apartments, as well as a hotel with 160 rooms. Check out a preview of the building below. It looks beyond luxurious.

Taking a page from Taylor Swift’s playbook, Madonna enlists her famous friends for her star-studded visual “Bitch I’m Madonna.” Unlike Swift’s “Bad Blood” clip though, the guest stars in the video seem like an afterthought.

With exception to Rita Ora, Chris Rock and Diplo, the likes of Beyonce, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus appear to have taped their cameos after Jonas Akerlund finished directing the clip.

Not surprisingly, the clip debuted exclusively on Tidal. If you recall, Madonna made headlines when she lifted her leg on the table while giving her signature.

While “Bad Blood” is a far superior clip, Madge’s latest is still a playful little romp. Lots of colorful and fun fashion abound. Check out it below before Jay-Z’s minions take it down.
