Beyoncé’s Best Moments

mm

Published

on

Today is Beyoncé’s 37th birthday and what better way to honor Queen Bey than to celebrate some of her best moments over the years.

1. Her Debut Single “Crazy in Love” in 2003

When this video dropped we finally got to see what Beyoncé can do on her own. The song was the start of the “Dangerously in Love” era and gave us the infamous “uh-oh” dance that still goes off today.

2. Performing with Prince at the 46th Grammy Awards

Just a year into her solo career and young Beyoncé was already performing with the legendary Prince, at music’s biggest night.

3. “B’Day” drops on September 1, 2006

 

 

 

 

 

 

What’s so iconic about this album is that she recorded it in 2 weeks!! Didn’t tell anybody and created timeless bops and classic videos. “B’Day” is such a slept on album but it really gave us some bops!!

4. “Single Ladies” Dance Phenomenom

Beyoncé had everyone recreating the “Single Ladies” choreography from girls in clown masks in the living room to Justin Timberlake on SNL. This minimalistic black-and-white video was such a staple in pop culture that you can’t think of 2009 without it.

5. Somebody’s Getting Fired

While on tour performing “Diva” one of her employees missed the cue for the lights. Beyoncé being the performer she is continued singing in the tune of the song but changed the lyrics to “Hey! Hey! Somebody’s Getting Fired!”

6. Pregnancy Reveal

During the 2011 MTV VMA Awards Beyoncé decided to let the world know that her and husband, Jay Z, were expecting their first child together. We will know that child to be Miss. Blue Ivy Carter. The adorable announcement was at the end of her song “Love on Top.”

7. “Formation” Breaks the Internet

In a very hot political climate Beyoncé took the time to let everyone know where she stands in the unapologetically black song “Formation.” In the song she addressed Illuminati rumors, her roots, how she lets Blue wear her hair, and not being ashamed of her black features. It was a black empowerment song for this generation.

8. Performing at the Superbowl

While this is Beyoncé’s second Superbowl performance I included this one because in the midst of the “boycott Beyoncé” movement she gave us one of the most blackest performances on mainstream broadcasting. Not only did she perform “Formation” but she had all black dances with their hair similar to afro puffs and Black Panther inspired attire. She showed out for a mostly white audience and didn’t care who was offended.

9. Lemonade

On April 4, 2016, HBO premiered Beyoncé six studio album, “Lemonade.” The visual album took us on a journey of a black woman dealing with infidelity in her marriage. The stages of dealing with such an issue and the visual behind it cultivated a movement and conversation that gets overlooked, black women’s vulnerability. From “Lemonade” we were able to have college courses that delved into the album, pop culture references, and an open dialogue and safe space for black women’s issues.

10. Beychella

Coachella invited Beyoncé to be the first black woman to headline the festival and she did not disappoint. Beyoncé took this opportunity to give us the HBCU experience. Beyoncé had a live band, all black dancers, and even performed the Black National Anthem. This performance showed she isn’t one to shy or hide her culture and that she will let the world know at every turn. Fearlessly.

Those are some of Beyoncé’s top moments. Some funny, some inspirational, and some that changed the culture. What are some of your favorite Beyoncé moments? Let us know in the comments.

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.
