beyonce-feminist-essay

Given that “***Flawless” included an audio excerpt from a speech by Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Beyoncé’s feminist essay about gender equality shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. The R&B singer is one of several prominent women lending their words to openly support equal pay in light of the Shiver Report. Their recent findings reveal that 42 million women in the USA are either living in poverty or are on the brink of living in poverty.

Other essays were written by Hillary Clinton, Eva Longoria and Jada Pinkett Smith. Some notable males were also drafted to show their support. NBA star LeBron James penned ‘America’s Working Single Mothers: An Appreciation.’ Read Beyonce’s short essay below.

Azealia Banks & Busta Rhymes Team Up For Beyonce Remix

If there is one track on Beyonce’s self-titled album that universally everyone seems to love, it’s “Partition.” The Timbaland-produced track has a sick beat, great lyrics and the accompanying video is beyond fantastic. The sexy visual is borderline pornographic with Beyonce’s ample ass showcased in all its juicy glory. I’m definitely not ready for all that jelly.

It’s not surprising that Bey’s fellow artists love the track as well. Azealia Banks and Busta Rhymes teamed up for an unofficial remix of the track. Busta kicks things off with his signature booming voice. I forgot how much I used to love Busta. Welcome back. Azealia does a solid job herself, but Rhymes is the star of this remix… and of course Bey. Check it out below.

Shahaf Moran is a 24-year-old producer & DJ from Israel. His impressive remixes have grown in popularity the past couple of years. He’s definitely one to keep an eye on. His version of Rihanna’s “Diamonds” quickly reached a million views on YouTube and exposed Shahaf to thousands of fans around the world. One of my recent favorites is a slick dance remix of Britney Spears “Perfume.” I put in on whenever I head to the gym.

For his latest, he tackles one of the standouts off Beyonce’s platinum-selling self titled album. “Blow” is already one of the few uptempo tracks on the LP, but Shahaf’s EDM makeover pushes the single to anthemic levels. Put on your neon clothing and roller skates and dance the night away with his sexy club banger. Check it out below.

Beyonce Scores Three-peat With Self-Titled Album

Beyonce fever doesn’t look like it’s going to cool off anytime soon. The 32-year-old singer logged her third consecutive week at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200. She’s the first female artist to do this since Taylor Swift achieved the feat with Red.

Beyonce’s self-titled album has now passed the 1.3 million mark, almost matching her previous LP, 4‘s 1.4 million domestic total. Insane!!! She’s also the first album since 2009 to sell more than 300,000 copies in each of its first three weeks- 617,000 in its debut, 374,000 the following week and now 310,000. With less than a month of availability, Bey scored the top-selling album of 2013 by a female, passing P!nk’s The Truth About Love, which has sold 920,000 copies.

This list is definitely a fine line between artistic integrity, videos that were influential to pop culture,  and things that just made me happy despite popular consensus. But covering and considering all those bases, here we go. Agree or disagree, here were some great visuals to great songs this year that made it 2013 for me, and maybe you, but mostly me.

most-charitable-celebrity-2013

DoSomething.org just released their annual Top 20 list of “Celebs Gone Good” and once again Taylor Swift is apparently the most giving celebrity in Hollywood. She topped last year’s list with her record $4 million donation to the Country Hall of Fame Museum- the largest sum ever given to the country organization. This year, the nonprofit cites Swift’s recent Winter White Gala in London, a benefit for homeless youth, a $100,000 donation to the Nashville Symphony which she gave on her 24th birthday as some of her do-gooding work. Not to discredit Taylor’s goodwill, but once again I’m surprised she’s the numero uno charitable celebrity out there. Right?

With their volunteer work in Ghana for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day and donation to cancer research, the boys of One Direction also made the list this year. Chime for Change and Goodwill activist Beyoncé, Reach Out Worldwide founder Paul Walker, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis round out the Top 5.

The most surprising thing about this year’s list is the absence of some individuals who made the Top 5 last year but are nowhere to be found in the Top 20. Channing Tatum and Lady Gaga, according to DoSomething.org, aren’t as charitable this year. I’m really curious to know how the nonprofit tabulates their results. Check out the rest of the list below.

beyonce-walmart

Attention Walmart shoppers. Beyonce is in the HOUSE!!! In another brilliant publicity stunt, Beyonce visited one of the retailer’s stores in Tewksbury, Massachusetts to buy a physical copy of her self-titled hit album. December 20th marked the first day actual CDs were available to purchase.

In addition to buying her latest LP, she purchased toys for Blue Ivy and $50 gift card for everyone in the store. According to reports, Beyonce paid for 750 gift cards for her fellow Walmart shoppers — totaling $37,500. I wonder if Target is regretting their decision not to carry Beyonce. This is fantastic and free promotion for Walmart.

Bey’s unexpected Walmart visit came on the heels of her album release party at Dave & Busters in New York the previous night. Earlier that evening, the 32-year-old superstar performed her Mrs. Carter Show in Brooklyn. One of those in attendance was none other than Madonna and her daugther Mercy James. “Mrs. Carter crushes the BK with her bad a** show! Girls run the world!,” Madge posted on Instagram. She also shared an adorable pic of Bey kissing Madge’s daughter on her forehead. Check it out below.

todrick-hall-grown-woman-video

Todrick Hall first teased his “Grown Woman” parody back in April. However, with no official video, he held back from releasing it… until now. With Beyonce’s surprise visual album including a clip for the wicked track, Hall has finally unveiled another masterpiece. Not surprisingly, it features Disney princesses. I’m so curious to find if Todrick’s bedroom is riddled with dolls from animated classics? Anyone care to wager?

The new video features Paige Thomas, Brinn Nicole, Jamie Overla, Krystal Ellsworth and Jenni Thomasson tackling iconic Disney princesses Tiana, Belle, Cinderella, Snow White, and Ariel. They channel dance moves that the 32-year-old entertainer performed in her Pepsi commercial which debuted earlier this year. Just like his last clip, he’s releasing this one exclusively to Marlon Wayan’s What The Funny video site. Check out the video below which features a rap interlude by Todrick himself.
