Formation” touches upon plenty of social issues, most notably the Black Lives Matter movement, but it appears people are also walking away with something else on their mind. Red Lobster!!!

The seafood chain reports its saw a sale surge of 33 percent on Sunday from a year ago, after Bey sang this saucy lyric, “When he fuck me good I take his ass to Red Lobster.” They don’t call her Queen Bey for nothing.

“It’s clear that Beyoncé has helped create some Red Lobster fans, and we are very grateful to her for that,” Red Lobster CEO Kim Lopdrup said in a statement. “’Cheddar Bey Biscuits’ has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?,” the chain tweeted.

Admittedly, I’m craving a little Red Lobster too. Sadly, there isn’t a location anywhere near me. Do you think Beyonce will ever be an official spokesperson for the restaurant? It’s never going to happen but I’d love to see it. Weigh in below.

Hopefully, your bank account has fully recovered from all that holiday spending, because you’ll need some coin to purchase tickets to Beyonce’s upcoming tour. Let’s face it, tickets won’t likely be cheap.

Just moments after her Super Bowl half-time appearance, the 34-year-old superstar announced dates for The Formation World Tour. The first leg kicks off in Miami on April 27, hitting Dallas, Chicago and Los Angeles along the way before ending in Hershey, Pennsylvania on June 12. Bey then begins the European leg on June 28.

Check out all the dates below, along with the first video promo.

I love “Viva la Vida,” “The Scientist,” “Fix You” and plenty other Coldplay songs, but no disrespect to the Chris Martin-led band, but their parts almost put me to sleep. It not for the colorful props surrounding them and other accoutrements, it was borderline boring.

Before you accuse me of being biased because I’m a huge Bey Hive card-carrying member, that’s not the case. Even Beyonce wasn’t in her finest form, showing a rare misstep when she almost fell during her dance routine. Though I will say, I loved her military-inspired outfit. It was a bit reminiscent of both Michael and Janet Jackson. Both of whom have headlined the Super Bowl halftime show. (Update: Apparently her outfit marked the 50th anniversary of the Black Panthers’ formation)

For me, Bruno Mars was the scene stealer. Sure “Uptown Funk” is a bit overplayed but it resuscitated the show. Mars’ showmanship and energy are undeniable. I loved it when his crew had a dance battle against Beyonce and her “Formation” squad. I could’ve easily watched 15 minutes of that.

Another highlight was the brief nod to past halftime shows, showing clips from memorable ones. Martin also got nostalgic, singing some bits of past performers’ song, including Prince’s “Purple Rain” and U2’s “Beautiful Day.”

If you haven’t watched the show, check it out below. Sound off afterwards if you loved or hated this year’s extravaganza.

It was widely rumored Beyonce would debut new music at the Super Bowl 50 Half-time Show. As expected, Queen Bey delivered. Equally as expected, she did it exclusively on Tidal. When will they stop trying to make that streaming service a thing? So not fetch.

As with many of Bey’s music in recent years, “Formation” doesn’t immediately scream hit. Given her quirky lyric pronunciations and killer choreography, it’ll probably grow on me. Plus, there’s no way her loyal Bey Hive will let this fail.

Check out the video below which finds the 34-year-old singer getting crunk in the dirty south, New Orleans specifically, with her all-female army. It’s by far her most political clip yet, touching upon police brutality and more timely topics.

Weigh in afterwards if you think B has a hit or flop on her hands. PS. The Red Lobster lyric has already gone viral.

Looks like Nicki Minaj isn’t letting her beef with Miley Cyrus die anytime soon. The 33-year-old rapper throws some shade at the “Wrecking Ball” singer on a new remix for Yo Gotti’s “Down in the DM.”

“He said ‘Kylie, what’s good?’/I said Miley, what’s good?/I said could you pay my bills like O’Reilly, what’s good?”

If you recall, Minaj put Cyrus on blast at the MTV Video Music Awards for Miley’s New York Times interview about Minaj’s feud with Taylor Swift. At first, Cyrus thought Minaj was joking but then quickly realized “What’s Good, Miley?” was a threat.

Give the track a listen below which includes Minaj name dropping Beyonce, Bill O’Reilly and Kylie. Pretty safe to say the latter is referencing Jenner and not Minogue. You never know with Nicki though 😉

With Super Bowl 50 just mere days away, naturally Coldplay drops a brand new video. And not just any, but one featuring Beyonce. Only makes sense given Yonce is scheduled to join the Chris Martin-fronted band at the Super Bowl Half-time Show.

The Ben Hor-directed visual finds Martin and Bey traveling to the exotic land of India. Beautiful landscapes, ancient temples and the vibrant people are highlighted in the beautifully-shot clip.

I do sense Martin and co. will no doubt receive some criticism for Beyonce dressing up in traditional Indian garb. I personally don’t find it offensive, but there will be some who will cite cultural appropriation.

Watch the “Hymn For The Weekend” video below and weigh in if you think Bey dressing in this way was a good or bad idea.

Lip Sync Battle kicked off its second season with style. The hour-long premiere featured Channing Tatum going up against his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum. Neither held back and delivered epic performances with each bringing a special guest star in tow.

Channing enlisted Beyonce for “Run The World (Girls)” while Jenna corralled Paula Abdul for “Cold Hearted Snake.” Tatum also lip synced to “Let It Go” from Frozen, while Jenna paid homage to him with a bang-on rendition of his Magic Mike routine to “Pony.”

Even though it ended in a tie, a first for the Spike TV show, I would’ve given the win to Jenna. Without Beyonce on his side, Channing’s performance was just alright, but Jenna’s “Pony” routine was epic. Check out a video of last night’s show below.

One down, one more to go.

Both Rihanna and Beyonce were rumored to join Coldplay during the Super Bowl 50 Half-time show. Pepsi, the sponsor of the extravaganza, confirmed to The Associated Press that Beyonce is officially on board. Fingers crossed, Queen Bey provides as many viral unflattering pics as her first time on the global stage.

With B now officially confirmed, it’s only a matter of time before more guest stars are announced. It’s also reported that Bruno Mars is set to appear alongside Coldplay. If he does, that makes it two out of the past three headliners to return. Katy Perry, who helmed last year’s show, being the lone one out.

Do you think Rihanna or Bruno Mars or someone else will be added to the roster? Hopefully, Bey and Coldplay team up on another song besides “Hymn For The Weekend” off the Brit group’s latest LP. It’s not exactly a showstopper. Right?
