Beyonce gorgeous in her latest selfie

Bey-RoseQueen “B” is at it again! All the gossip and rumors about Beyonce’s marriage, photoshopped pictures, and possible new pregnancy haven’t seemed to phase her one bit…. Over the weekend Beyonce posted a picture on her personal Instagram account with seemingly no makeup on her face and wearing nothing but a rose crown on her head! This is the second time this year that Beyonce has posted a “no makeup selfie”. Could she be responding to all the backlash she has been getting for her possibly photoshopping other pictures on Instagram? The reasons don’t seem to be quite clear!

However, Beyonce does look simply beautiful in her selfie with no makeup on. The pop star seems to still be at the top of her game at the age of 33!


What do you guys think? Does “Queen B” still have the same appeal as she did in 2003 when she released the single “Dangerously in Love” ? Beyonce released the single just a year after departing from the famous girl- group “Destiny’s Child”. The song propelled Beyonce into a solo star as it became a worldwide hit! Doing some karaoke to “Dangerously in Love” is SURE to turn up your Monday!

Destiny’s Child Reunite To Share Some “Urban Inspiration.”

The beautiful and talented ladies of Destiny’s Child are back. For the first time since their thrilling Super Bowl reunion in 2013, the trio joins forces to star in the video for Michelle William’s inspirational new song “Say Yes,” the first single off of her new pop-gospel album Journey To Freedom.

As described in an article on usmagazine.com, “The upbeat video features Williams singing and dancing around with a group of cheering dancers waving their flags. Beyonce, sporting her recently debuted long braids, dances alone in the forest with a giant gold necklace and large white cover-up. Rowland (who is now pregnant) wears a white crop top with her hair short as she grins and rocks from side to side in the same forest.”

Journey To Freedom is Williams’ fourth solo studio album and the singer describes the work as one of “urban inspiration.” The album is due for released this September.

Although Rowland and Williams both made appearances in Beyonce’s “Superpower” music video, “Say Yes” marks the first time Destiny’s Child has actually recorded a song together since 2013’s “Nuclear,” and only their second such collaboration since the group formally disbanded in 2005.

Halftime Havoc: The best Super Bowl halftime shows EVAR!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWith Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers set to headline this Sunday’s Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show, we thought we’d take a little time to countdown some our favorite halftime performances and moments from past Super Bowls. So take a break from the party prep (the chili-cheese dip can wait) and check out our fav-5!

#5 Janet and Justin: “Wardrobe malfunction” (NSFW) It’s been 10 years since the infamous “Nipplegate” incident at Super Bowl XXXVIII (38), but Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson will never live it down… mostly because we won’t let them. The controversial ending moment may have stolen the spotlight (and pretty much all of the media’s attention), but it’s a shame that it had to detract from what was otherwise a great halftime performance.

#4 Beyoncé: It’s DestinyThe best concerts aren’t limited to glitz, glamour, and special effects, although Beyoncé‘s outstanding halftime performance at Super Bowl XLVII (47) certainly had all that. What really sets a performance apart is the performer him/herself. In today’s music industry Beyoncé is beyond compare in this category and she proved it with last year’s performance. But that wasn’t all! Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, the audience was treated to a surprise Destiny’s Child reunion as former band mates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams exploded onto stage and joined Queen Bey for a few unforgettable moments. Amazing.

#3 U2: We will never forget — Music, as an artform, is all about emotion. And nothing brings out more emotion in us Americans than remembering the tragic events of 9/11. Just months after that horrific day U2 kicked off the Super Bowl XXXVI (36) halftime show with their song “Beautiful Day,” but it was their stirring tribute to those lost on 9/11 that will always be remembered. The band performed their classic hit  “Where The Streets Have No Name” as a running list of victim’s names filled the background and brought tears to the eyes of many of us watching at home.

#2 Prince: The artist STILL known as awesome — Only three years after Janet’s infamous wardrobe “malfunction,” tensions were still running high regarding live television performances, so choosing an artist  well-known for his highly sensual music videos and live performances to headline the halftime show at Super Bowl XLI (41) seemed like a risky choice. True to form, however, Prince used the opportunity to prove why he is one of the most legendary performers in music history and once again solidified his status as the “Prince of Rock.” Watch the full performance here!

#1 Michael Jackson: The “King of Pop” is the king of halftime — No auto-tune, no surprize guest appearances, no fancy monitor effects. There is one thing that made Michael Jackson #1 at everything he did; pure talent. Say what you will about his controversial personal life and legal issues, there is no one who rivaled the King of Pop when it came to live musical performances. Jackson’s iconic performance at the Super Bowl XXVII (27) halftime show in 1993 (even if it was lip-synced) proved this even further as it marked the first time in history that Super Bowl viewership increased during halftime.

No Bouncers Needed For These “Party Crashers.”

Guys, imagine you’ve rented a basketball court at your local community center for a private game of 3-on-3 for you and a few of your buds… and in walk Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen! Well that’s pretty much what happened to a few besties at a private karaoke party in Party City, USA.

On Tuesday (January 7) a few gal-pals had rented a private room at Sing Sing Karaoke in Miami, Florida. After several hours, and likely just as many drinks, things are starting to drag just a bit. In a bid to liven things back up (one of the friends had even fallen asleep) one of the bff’s decided to sing “Party” by Beyoncé. A perfect choice and, interestingly enough, an ironic one. Anybody want to take a stab at what happened next? YUP! In walk (dance) Beyoncé and close friend / former Destiny’s Child band-mate, Kelly Rowland!

Once that fuzzy “am I dreaming” feeling finally leaves, what would you do in this situation? I like to think I’d keep my cool and turn on the ol’ charm (Sorry Jay Z), but more likely I’d lose my $@%& like everyone else. Don’t judge me!
