HBO Pairs Beyonce Up With True Blood

beyonce-x10-miniseries

Last time Beyonce collaborated with HBO, she gave the network its most-viewed music special since 2003. Life Is But a Dream drew 1.8 million viewers the night it premiered and grossed a total of 8.9 million viewers. It’s no wonder HBO wants to stay in the Beyonce business.

The network announced a concert miniseries dubbed Beyonce: X10. Couldn’t make the Mrs. Carter World Tour? No worries. The 10-episode series will feature weekly performances each about four minutes long which will air beginning June 29 before each episode of True Blood.

Beyonce Creates Video Playlist Featuring June Babies

Beyonce’s birthday is in September, but her sister Solange is June. So is mine, just in case you were wondering. Feel free to send gifts ;)

In honor of her sister (is she sucking up?) and her other ‘favorite’ musical artists, Bey created a video playlist for those celebrating birthdays this month. Mrs. Carter truly has eclectic musical tastes that spans several genres.

Prince’s “Breakfast Can Wait” kicks things off with selections by Robyn, Iggy Azalea, Faith Evans, Boy George, Jason Mraz, Lana Del Rey among those found in the mix. The 18-song selection ends with Fantasia’s “When I See You.” Give Beyonce’s video playlist a spin below.

Beyonce Is Godzilla In Amusing Faux Trailer

There’s no denying Beyonce is a force of nature. It’s no wonder she’s the inspiration for this homemade Godzilla spoof by YouTube user Hajiketobu. The iconic Japanese monster is nothing compared to the slayage the “Drunk In Love” singer unleashes. It’s the Bey-ocalypse.

After the beatdown Solange inflicted on Jay-Z on that infamous elevator ride, I’m looking more forward to the sequel Solange: The Ratchet Reckoning. Check out the Beyonce faux trailer below. The clips incorporating Bey’s Super Bowl performance and visuals of Katy Perry and Gaga crying are everything.

It was bound to happen and thankfully it’s here. Some enterprising individual has mashed up the talents of Iggy Azalea and Reba McEntire for one amazing “Fancy” supercut. Mixing the Aussie’s slick rhymes with the country superstar’s sound might not seem like a good fit, but the result is nothing short of fantastic. It’s a definite must-hear.

If that wasn’t enough I-G-G-Y for you, verses from her smash hit have also made their way on an unofficial remix of “Partition.” I’m sure Beyonce would approve. After all, she enlisted Azalea to open for her during the Australian leg of her Mrs. Carter tour. Check out both mashups below.

John Mayer Releases Studio Version Of Beyonce Cover

I’m not John Mayer’s biggest fan by any means. Dude can sometimes come off as a douchebag. However, I’m loving the studio version release of his Beyonce cover.

Back in April, the 36-year-old performed an awesome live version of Bey’s “XO” during a concert in Australia. Almost universally, people responded to his cover positively. Naturally, John released a high quality version of the Ryan Tedder-produced ballad. For the most part, it sounds identical to his live performance which is a testament to how great a performer Mayer is. The only significant difference is you can hear his vocals much clearer. Check it out below and see how it compares to Mrs. Carter’s original track.

It’s another Destiny’s Child reunion!!! (sorta)

Michelle Williams enlisted her former bandmates, Beyonce and Kelly Rowland, for a bumpin’ new gospel track. Williams even snagged Bey’s scrappy little sister Solange for good measure. The infectious track is so catchy you can’t help but love it. The second I heard it, it got me twerking for Jesus. If you’re not a fan of gospel, this will convert you.

Say Yes” is lifted off Michelle’s forthcoming album, Journey To Freedom. Reportedly, all the girls were spotted in New Jersey filming the music video. It’ll be the first time DC have appeared in a clip since their 2005 charity single “Stand Up For Love.” Technically, they appeared in Bey’s “Superpower” video but neither Rowland nor Williams provided any vocals for that. Check out the catchy track below.

SNL Parodies Solange Beatdown & Michael Sam Kiss

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Saturday Night Live can sometimes be at the mercy of a slow news week. The comedy gods were extremely generous to SNL this week with plenty of hilarious topics for the show to work with.

For its season finale hosted by Andy Samberg, the late-night show tackled two of the previous week’s juiciest stories- Solange’s elevator attack on Jay-Z and Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend after learning he was drafted by the St. Louis Rams.

Check out both sketches below which features plenty of returning SNL alums including Maya Rudolph, Kristen Wiig, Fred Armisen, Bill Hader and more. The voiceovers by Solange and Jay-Z during the elevator footage is everything. Apparently a pesky spider was all to blame.

beyonce-on-the-run-promo

It’s not like Beyonce and Jay-Z needed to heavily promote their upcoming joint On The Run tour. A simple tweet would’ve sold out multiple arenas. Being the visual person that Bey is, she surprised her fans yet again by dropping a stunning promo video. Given the unwanted attention her family squabble has been receiving, shifting conversation to a more professional matter is probably desired.

Directed by Melina Matsoukas, who helmed Bey’s “Pretty Hurts,” the four-minute clip thematically plays on the Carter’s first collaboration, “’03 Bonnie & Clyde.” Appearing in the video are Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Guillermo Díaz, Emmy Rossum, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively, Rashida Jones and Kidada Jones.

The production is top notch. It plays like a trailer for a big budget summer blockbuster. Only thing is, this is one movie we’re never going to see… or will we? I wouldn’t put it past Bey to release a surprise movie. Check out the clip below.
