What more can I say that the average Beyhive member hasn’t already said? Beyoncé once again proved why she’s the greatest performer that currently grace’s our presence. From the moment she steps foot on stage to when she opens her vocal cords on a microphone.

This year’s theme for the Global Citizen Festival was Mandela 100 in honor of Nelson Mandela and the legacy he left on the country during his time as president and the civil rights work he did.

Here are some quick facts about the Global Citizen Organization and the work they have done to help end global poverty and other humanitarian deeds. From their website,

  • “Since 2011 Global Citizens have taken more than 13.3 million online actions across the world to place pressure on business leaders and policy makers to end extreme poverty.
  • Over the past six years, these actions alongside our high-level advocacy and the tireless work of our many partners  have helped secure 390 commitments and announcements. 
  • The commitments are valued at more than $35 billion, of which $10 billion has already been disbursed or fundraised all commitments recorded are new commitments that were announced on a Global Citizen stage or were driven in a significant way by the actions of Global Citizens, as well as our own high level advocacy efforts, conducted with partners.
  • Thus far the funds have impacted the lives of 648.9 million people, and are set to affect the lives of 1.1 billion more.

Long story short Global Citizen is doing the work. But now back to Beyoncé and her husband performance.

South Africa Hive was throwing all kinds of shade to the rest of the international hive community because usually they’re left out the fun. Especially since a report came out stating that we were only going to see the first 25 mins of her performance.

Nevertheless, Beyoncé did show out during the sets that were viewable during the streams. But after that 25 mins, Pettyoncé was like lights out dats all you getting from me.

Beyoncé also performed along with Jay-Z, Pharell, Ed Sheeran, and Tofo Tofo.

Here’s some video footage of some of the songs that she performed.

Jussie Smollett

Police have identified two Nigerian men as suspects in Jussie Smollett’s case. The men have been questioned in the attack on the “Empire” star and have been arrested on probable cause.

Identified as brothers, the two men have been questioned by police in Chicago following their arrival from Nigeria. The suspects were apprehended at Chicago O’Hare International Airport on Wednesday after authorities learned one of them was connected to “Empire.” Following the Chicago Police receiving and executing a search warrant, authorities are not disclosing what was found within the shared apartment.

In a statement provided to Associated Press by Anthony Guglielmi, Chief Communications Officer of the Chicago PD, there was emphasis placed on the nature of the suspects arrest. At this time, both persons have been arrested for probable cause alone.

Breaking the Silence

For the first time since the January 29th attack, Jussie Smollett has sat down for an interview. Robin Roberts of Good Morning America inquired about what happened that fateful evening and how Jussie was responding to those who doubt his claims. Jussie took the opportunity to share what happened during the attack, clear up what his assailants said while assaulting him, and added his manager was on the phone the entire time.

When it comes to what his attackers looked like, Jussie says, “I can’t tell you what color their eyes were” as their appearance was obstructed by ski masks. He provided a body description to officers and noted that he only saw them completely as they were running away. Robin then asked if Jussie believed the men in the photo were his attackers and he said, “I don’t have any doubt in my mind that’s them.”

New Tape Implicating R. Kelly Has Surfaced

mm

Published

on

Lawyer Michael Avenatti, who recently represented Stormy Daniels, has revealed to CNN that prosecutors investigating R. Kelly are in possession of another video implicating the R&B singer.

Michael Avenatti acquired the tape through representing a whistle-blower against R. Kelly. Last weekend, he turned it over to Cook County authorities in Chicago. The video, which is on VHS, has since been obtained and viewed by CNN. It allegedly shows R. Kelly involved with a 14-year-old. Although no mention of the girl’s name or age is made, Kelly and the victim both refer to her genitals as “14-year-old p***y.” The girl mentions it six times throughout the course of the video.

Early Valentine’s Day morning, Avenatti released a statement on Twitter that describes the horrific tape. In the memo he emphasizes, “the time frame of the sexual assaults depicted in the video is within the Illinois statue of limitations.” As of now, R. Kelly’s attorney Steve Greenberg maintains no knowledge of any new evidence or prosecuting case developments.

The footage, which has never been discussed before today, is roughly 42 minutes and 45 seconds long. Clear and unobstructed, a man appearing to be R. Kelly can be seen performing sex acts with the girl. At one point he commands that she urinates. After she complies, he urinates on her. The victim can be heard referring to Kelly as “daddy” repeatedly during the tape.

Following the release of Surviving R. Kelly, authorities have worked in Georgia and Illinois in an effort to mute the singer and end his sexual tyranny once and for all. With parallels being drawn between the tape from 2002 and this current piece of evidence, the prosecution is confident they can bring the singer to justice.
