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.

If you were able to tune in during the livestream or view the performance in person what was your favorite Beyoncé look or set? Comment down below. See you in 2019 Beyoncé or should I say Nala.

Wendy Williams Reveals She’s Been Living in “Sober Home”

wendy williams reveals addiction

For years people scolded Wendy for never spilling her own tea. Well, here it is. Wendy Williams has been living in a “sober home” to quietly get treatment for a long unresolved addition to cocaine.

Revealing a secret known only to her husband, Kevin Hunter, Wendy says although she has always been candid about her cocaine use, she never sought treatment. The daytime television gossip queen shared with her audience that after each episode is filmed she goes to her Pilates class and then heads to several meetings across the city before ultimately returning to her group home. Driven by a “24-hour sober coach”, Wendy has been rooming at a facility where it’s “doors locked by 10 pm, lights out by 10pm.” Detailing her evenings, she says, “I go to my room and stare at the ceiling and fall asleep to come here and see you.”

“It’s my truth.”

Over the course of her career, Wendy Williams has discussed her drug use multiple times. However, when it comes to how she stopped, Wendy says, “I never went to a place to get the treatment — I didn’t know how, except God was just sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped.” While she was seeking professional help for her addiction, Wendy said she did not confide in her other family members. As for whether her stay in the group home contributed to her absence from January to March 4th, we can’t be sure. A fractured shoulder and ongoing battle with Graves’ disease are credited as responsible for her extended break.

Wendy’s admission has been applauded by many who want to remove the stigma surrounding drug addiction discussions. Many have taken to Twitter to share their love and support for her. Recently, Wendy’s foundation partnered with an organization geared toward branching treatment and long-term recovery. She hopes that by being open about her struggle, other will be inspired to get the help they need.

J.K. Rowling Gets Dragged After Saying Dumbledore and Grindelwald had “Intense” Relationship

JK Rowling

JK Rowling must be taking her cues from Tumblr fan fics. In news that no one expected, JK revealed Dumbledore and Grindelwald were once involved in an “intense sexual relationship.” But fans are scratching their heads wondering why her characters are never openly gay in the films or the books.

Stemming from a thread that quotes the author, Rowling revealed she was “less interested in the sexual side.” Recent updates show that JK must be far more interested than she’s leading on and fans aren’t having it! The response to this new information has readers saying “Wingardium Leviosa” to her wig.

Chief among her fans complaints is the lack of queer representation in her novels coupled with her frequent highly sexual updates that serve as attempts to maintain relevance. In addition, her extra details frequently complicate what readers already know from the books. In September 2018, one reveal inadvertently made Neville Longbottom a murderer.

Fans of her beloved wizarding world have been shading her endlessly since the unwarranted reveal, but JK has yet to respond to any of the criticism.
