Forget the surfboart, its all about the lasso for Beyonce these days. The 32-year-old singer heads to dry land wearing chaps, a cowboy hat and other western garb for a “Drunk In Love” remix video. Bey swaps out hubby Jay-Z for Kanye West on the new version. Keeping in line with the racy theme of the track, Mr. Kim Kardashian appropriately raps about a sexual position. Care to take any guesses given the theme? Give yourself a gold star if you predicted ‘reverse cowgirl.’ Check out the teaser below.

The French duo of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, better known as Daft Punk, triumphed over Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Rihanna and countless others by taking home some of the night’s biggest awards. They snatched up Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Dance/Electronica Album and the very prestigious Album of the Year. Not bad for a duo who never showed their faces or spoke a single word during the telecast.

Lorde also capped off a remarkable year by winning Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. Given her impressive haul, one would think Best New Artist would’ve been a foregone conclusion. That didn’t happen. The Kiwi singer wasn’t even nominated in that category. Instead, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis snatch that coveted accolade.

Speaking of the Seattle-based rap duo, they gave the most memorable performance of the evening. They were joined by Mary Lambert and Madonna during a special rendition of “Same Love” that incorporated Madge’s classic tune, “Open Your Heart.” In the middle of the epic collaboration, Queen Latifah officiated 33 couples getting married. The newlyweds included all creeds, colors and sexualities. It was so moving, it made Keith Urban and other audience members cry. Props to the Grammys for taking a very public and very televised stand for marriage equality.

Other notable performances include Miranda Lambert teaming up with Billie Joe Armstrong, Sara Bareilles with Carole King, Katy Perry, Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Hunter Hayes and Taylor Swift. Even though we’ve all seen P!nk suspended in mid-air, twirling around in ropes before I enjoyed her medley of “Try” and “Just Give Me A Reason.” Beyonce and Jay-Z kicked off the marathon telecast with a sexy live performance of “Drunk In Love.” It was captivatingly simple. Check it out below along with other performances and the list of winners.

Billboard magazine bestowed the top spot on their annual Power 100 list to Beyoncé & Jay Z. The two aren’t just multi-platinum-selling recording artists but also founded their own companies, Roc Nation (Jay-Z) and Parkwood Entertainment (Beyoncé). They steal the No. 1 slot from Universal Music Group CEO Lucian Grainge who held it last year, but dropped to No. 2 on the 2014 list. Rounding out the Top 3 is Red Light Management founder Coran Capshaw.

The list of the most influential people in the music industry is mostly comprised by movers and shakers behind the scenes. The more familiar names that made the cut include: Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun; music producer Dr. Luke; Spotify CEO Daniel Ek; recording executive Jimmy Iovine; Simon Cowell and Ryan Seacrest. To check out the entire list, head over to Billboard.

Did Bey and Jay-Z earn the top slot? Who do you think deserves the top slot? Weigh in below.

Turns out the rumors are true. Beyonce and Jay-Z are performing at this weekend’s Grammy Awards. CBS confirmed their additions in a brand new promo clip. In the first hour alone, the show boasts an incredible lineup which includes Katy Perry, Lorde, Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift, John Legend, Hunter Hayes and Mr. & Mrs. Carter. With the latter two now solidified, I wonder if those Madonna rumors are true as well.

Sunday night’s Grammys will mark Beyonce’s first televised performance since the launch of her self-titled fifth album last month. Beyoncé’s total currently stands at 1.5 million, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

In other Bey-related news, the singer recently premiered a glitzy commercial for her latest fragrance, Rise. It’s lots of glamor shots of the “Irreplaceable” singer in a sea of gold dust and glitter. Ke$ha would be so jealous. Check it below.

Beyonce surprised everyone tonight with the release of a brand new self-titled album! The visual album features 14 new tracks accompanied by 17 videos. A few of us from Homorazzi had the pleasure of seeing her perform here in Vancouver a couple weeks ago and after witnessing her epic performance, it makes me wonder how she had the time to secretly work on all of this?

I’ve only skimmed through the album (which is her 5th) and have definitely liked what I’ve heard so far. Surprisingly, “Grown Woman” didn’t make it on the album. That being said, the music video for the song is included as a bonus video. Of the new tracks, the only really upbeat song is “Blow” but it’s clear that she wasn’t going for a dance-type album with this anyone.

The album features collaborations with Jay Z, Frank Ocean, Drake,and even her own daughter, Blue Ivy. A couple songs like I like right off the bat are “Flawless” and “Pretty Hurts”. I can’t wait to dive in and actually go through each song and video. Speaking of videos, Bey hooked up with high-profile directors including Terry Richardson, Melina Matsouka, Jonas Akerlund, Jake Nava and Hype Williams.

In: Donovan, Music

Jay-Z’s next album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, features collaborations with Frank Ocean, Rick Rubin, Justin Timberlake and Nas to name a few. Without a doubt the most highly-anticipated is his duet with Beyonce. The married couple reunite for a sequel to 2002′s “’03 Bonnie & Clyde” titled “Part II (On the Run).”

“I’m an outlaw/ Gotta outlaw chick/ Bumping Tupac/ On my outlaw sh–,” Jigga raps before making reference to the couple’s ring-finger tattoos. “Matching tatts this ink don’t come off/ Even if rings come off/ If things ring off/ My nails get dirty.”

For the release of his new album, the 43-year-old rapper partnered with Samsung. He’s been teasing details about the project through the company’s app. Samsung pre-ordered one million copies of Magna Carta Holy Grail and will distribute them to some users of the app. News of “Part II (On the Run)” is the latest to be made public through the mobile software. Take a listen of the new track below.

It’s A Hard Knock Life For Cameron Diaz

In: Donovan, Movies

Will Smith and Jay-Z’s Annie remake finally has a Miss Hannigan. Originally, Sandra Bullock was being courted to play the role, but talks fell through. Enter Cameron Diaz to save the day. Deadline.com reports that negotiations finished June 26. Diaz is the latest to play the iconic role which has been played by Carol Burnett in the original film, Kathy Bates in a TV remake and Jane Lynch who’s currently starring in the Broadway musical revival.

The 40-year-old actress joins a star-studded cast which includes Jamie Foxx as Daddy Warbucks Benjamin Stacks (apparently they renamed the character), Jada Pinkett-Smith and Quvenzhane Wallis stepping in to play the titular role. The Will Gluck-directed remake is slated for a Christmas 2014 release.

Do you think Diaz is a good choice to play Miss Hannigan or would Sandra Bullock been a better choice? For that matter, is another Annie film even necessary? Sound off below.

The Great Gatsby Soundtrack Review

In: Matt, Music

There’s been so much hype leading up to the release of The Great Gatsby this week. The same goes for the Jay-Z curated soundtrack. We’ve talked a lot recently about individual songs as they’ve been released but now the entire soundtrack is out and, as with most of these multi-artist soundtracks, it’s a bit of a mixed bag.

The album mixes hip-hop, rock, and electronica with a 1920s jazz era sound, which results in a sexy, vibrant take on the era. If you didn’t already know the movie was set almost 100 years ago, you certainly will after listening to the soundtrack.
