Can you believe Beyoncé has been touring for nearly a year now?? That’s a whole lot of shows, dancing, singing and performances for one person. But if anyone could do it, best believe it would be Beyoncé. With the final show now in the books, Beyoncé and her people put together a short farewell video with highlights of their experiences.
Did you all go to any of the shows? What were your favorite parts? Let me know in the comments but check out the farewell video below:
If you’re keeping track, Beyoncé is still touring and singing around the globe. Last night, Mrs. Carter performed at the BRIT Awards in London. Dressed in a skin-tight and gorgeous emerald sequined dress, Beyoncé dazzles with her live performance of her single XO.
The London Chamber Orchestra provided the musical accompaniment. Along with dazzling visuals and some great light work, this live performance made me like the song just that much more. Check out the video below:
Every year, when Black History Month rolls around, we tend to hear information about the same important figures in Black History: Martin Luther King, Jr, Rosa Parks and Frederick Douglass, just to name a few. But Beyoncé is seeking to change that. Every day, during the month of February, Beyoncé will be highlighting numerous unsung Black heroes on her website.
“In honor of African American men and women who have worked diligently dedicating their lives to inspire our future, I want to shine a spotlight on their achievements and sacrifices during Black History Month. These are some of the unsung heroes, past and present. For 28 days I will highlight their stories in hopes to inspire, motivate and move you.” – Beyoncé
So what do you do if you’re Beyoncé and Target refuses to sell your album because you released the album first on iTunes? Why, you go shopping at Walmart, that’s what!! Beyoncé surprised some lucky Walmart shoppers with $50 giftcards today, in a CLEAR blow to Target.
Here’s something to think about, as well. Beyoncé released the album to be sold at Starbucks and guess what discount retail chains carries Starbucks in most of their stores?? WELP!! Beyoncé: 2 Target: 0 Check out the rest of the photos on her Facebook page here.
What goes along better with a secret album release? A secret album release party, that’s what! At least that’s what I’m guessing went down. Last night/early this morning Beyoncé posted some shots on Instagram from what appears to be an album release party hosted at Dave & Buster’s in New York City.
The party was packed with all sorts of Beyoncé goodies, including t-shirts featuring the song titles, the blinking bow headbands featured in the XO video and some custom cupcakes!! (“Girl, f*ck your cupcakes.” Word to Miss Jia.) Check out the photos below:
