Beyonce & Jay Z Debut Part One Of New Short Film

In: Donovan, Music
beyonce-jay-z-short-film

Beyonce and Jay Z sure do love channeling Bonnie and Clyde-like characters in black and white short films, don’t they? The superstar couple star in a brand new one, this time for NOWNESS.

“Two American outlaws speed through the Californian desert in a dusty 1960s Pontiac GTO with a manifest poise and stylish swagger that could only be embodied by the world’s foremost musical couple: Beyoncé and Jay Z” – Video Description

Filmmaker and photographer Dikayl Rimmasch shot three short films starring Mr and Mrs Carter’s alter egos. Part One of “Bang Bang” just dropped. Look for the other two to debut shortly. Rimmasch recalls his first conversation with Jay Z about the film.

“We’re not trying to do this literally, it’s not that we’re Bonnie and Clyde. We’re on the run from everything. On the run from becoming a cliché. On the run from doing the same thing again,’” According to Jay Z says Dikayl. “Everything he mentioned was a level of consciousness he has for staying alive as an entertainer and as a human being. He wanted to keep it more abstract because for him it was very abstract. How do you stay new, not just to your audience but also yourself?”

The MTV Video Music Awards take place at The Forum in Inglewood, California Sunday night. By far, the ‘moonman’ for Video Of The Year is the most prestigious one that everyone wants. Iggy Azalea (“Fancy”), Beyonce (“Drunk In Love”), Miley Cyrus (“Wrecking Ball”), Sia (“Chandelier”) and Pharrell Williams (“Happy”) are all in contention for the big award.

Even though Bey leads with the most nominations, my money is on either Iggy or Sia to take home the prize. Whoever wins will join an illustrious group of past winners which includes Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.

Check out their winning offerings below along with some others that aren’t so easy to recall. Remember Panic! At The Disco? Weigh in below on which ones are your favorites and your prediction on who’ll reign supreme this year.

Beyonce goes retro in the second trailer for her forthcoming HBO special, On The Run. Mrs. Carter covers the 1966 classic “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” in the black and white promo.

Dressed as a glamorous jazz singer, Bey serenades her hubby and touring partner, Jay-Z as he smokes a stogie. The clip then cuts to footage of the duo’s joint tour which is full of tight choreography, stunts and, naturally, hair flips.

Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” was penned by Sonny Bono and recorded by both Nancy Sinatra and his then-wife Cher. It’s clear, Beyonce was more inspired with the former with her rendition. Check out all three versions below and weigh on who gives a more deadlier performance.

Someone’s taking advantage of their new-found notoriety. Even though Jay Z’s alleged mistress, Liv, hasn’t publicly confirmed rumors that she’s the reason why Jay Z and Beyonce’s marriage is on the rocks, the female rapper has released a track titled, “Sorry Mrs. Carter.” With lyrics taking aim at Bey, the song hardly seems like an apology for sleeping with her man. Here are a couple of excerpts:

“Girls can’t run the world fightin’ over men, all my single ladies better keep in mind when them those tables turn you gon’ be the wife.”

“You out here tellin’ them how to serfbort. Come on, now. Serfborts. Monica Lewinsky. You a married woman.”

“The man? He likes model chicks. He likes all naturally flawless model chicks, like me.”

If the rumors are true, I can’t believe Jay Z would cheat on Beyonce with this hooker. The Destiny’s Child singer is so much hotter and prettier. I guess we all know why Solange gave Jay Z a much-needed bitch slapping during that infamous elevator ride. Give the track a listen below which samples Outkast’s “Ms Jackson.”

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.

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.

Days after that wonderfully entertaining video of Solange Knowles beating up Jay-Z surfaced, Beyonce has finally broken her silence. It’s about time girl. I’m still shocked the “Drunk In Love” singer stood there silently in the elevator while little sis went bat shit crazy on her husband.

In an exclusive statement to the Associated Press, Beyonce says they have worked through their differences and have moved on. She goes on to say that “families have problems and we’re no different.”

Unfortunately, the statement doesn’t actually reveal what started the fight. I don’t think we will ever know. You have to assume it’s something pretty big for Solange to delete every picture featuring Beyonce on her Instagram account. Today however, she posted an adorable pic from their childhood for #TBT. Check out the photo below, along with the full statement by Beyonce.

OH SH$T GURLLLL!!! Don’t ever piss off Solange Knowles. Girl has some fire in her. Beyonce’s little sister goes ratchety hoodrat at Jay-Z inside an elevator at a Met Ball after-party. The beatdown goes on for a little while before Solange is physically restrained by another man which I assume is a bodyguard.

Where’s Bey doing all this? Watching quietly on the sidelines of course. I’m curious to know why she didn’t attempt to stop little sis. With no audio in play, it’s difficult to figure out exactly how the fight started but it escalates pretty quickly. Maybe she’s angry for not being included on Bey and Jay-Z’s joint tour ;) Props to Jay-Z for not reacting to a clearly hyped up Solange.

Thanks to TMZ, the footage from the surveillance video from the Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking District was obtained. I’m curious to know how much they paid for the footage. Check it out below.
