At long last, the twin stars of my life, Beyoncé and Rihanna, have converged to meet in the same picture.
During Tuesday night’s star-studded Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief telethon, celebrities raised more than $44 million for hurricane survivors, including a $5 million donation from Apple Inc., and $1 million each from the Albertsons Cos. and Merck & Co. In addition, celebrities offered strong opinions…
What can be said about Queen Bey that hasn’t already been said, done, sung, texted, tweeted, explicated, unpacked, imagined? In an age when there are very few true superstars, she stands alone; one of a few black women, one of a few of her generation.
Queen Bey continues to spread her magnificence throughout the realm. The Houston native went back to her childhood church this week to be with victims of Hurricane Harvey, including the family of The Root’s very own Kirsten West Savali, who wrote about their horrific ordeal on the site.
One of the most endearing things about Beyoncé is that despite her carefully crafted image, she still manages to impart the illusion that she’s just like the rest of us, a regular “Texas bama” slanging hot sauce, decrying police brutality and making Lemonade when life becomes too bitter.
With her hometown under siege because of Hurricane Harvey, Beyoncé issued a statement Tuesday saying that she was taking part in relief efforts with the help of her BeyGood organization and her local pastor, Rudy Rasmus.
Beyoncé is giving back to her hometown of Houston during the area’s time of need as Hurricane Harvey drops record-breaking amounts of rain and flooding.
From Kellyanne Conway and Tomi Lahren to the whole “53 percent of y’all voted for Darth Cheeto” thing, this has not been a particularly good year for white women. Collectively, they’ve undergone a bit of a cultural reckoning, as there has never been a hotter spotlight on their role in propagating, nurturing and…
If you’ve ever watched Beyoncé perform, you’ve probably noticed Ashley Everett whipping her curly, red locks by her side. Everett is Beyoncé’s beloved dance captain, and she’s been working with Queen Bey for over a decade. She knows all about loyalty and has become one of the key players behind Beyoncé’s flawless…
Yes, we live in a world where Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s date night is news. We also live in a world where Donald Trump is the president, so I say pick your poison. I’d rather focus on Beyoncé’s bountiful bosom on a date. Beyoncé has often been referred to as a robot but has been (strategically) humanizing herself since…
Kim Porter, the mother of three of Sean “Diddy” Combs’ children, defended her ex from body-shamers who have been coming out of the woodwork since a recent shot of him on a yacht surfaced last week ... with a not-so-tight body in effect.
This week, besides having to scroll through all things Rumi and Sir Carter, I learned that Madame Tussauds doesn’t care about black people, particularly Beyoncé, Prince, Denzel Washington and any other black wax figure they’ve made. Dr. Umar Johnson may just be a doctor after all. It took some digging from The Root’s…
Madame Tussauds caught hellfire when Beyoncé’s wax figure hit social media. The statue looked more like Kate Hudson and nothing like Beyoncé. From the lighter complexion to the facial features, many people guffawed about the fact that the museum hadn’t done a better job.
You see that lovely photo of the white woman above? Allegedly it’s Beyoncé’s Madame Tussauds wax figure. And it has users on social media going, “WTF?”
A month after welcoming twins into the world, Beyoncé finally shared a photo of Sir Carter and Rumi.
What I thought when I met my dad was, “Oh, I’m free to love now.” But it’s like, how are you gonna do it? ... You’ve never done this before; no one informed you how to do this. You don’t even have the tools to do it …
The unapologetic blackness of Jay-Z and Beyoncé continues. ’Cause you know black folks are real creative when it comes to our kids’ names. Celebrities, too. And they are both.
Look, I apologize, often womanized
Took for my child to be born
To see through a woman’s eyes …
There’s a popular nightly talk show in the Philippines called Gandang Gabi Vice (GGV), hosted by Vice Ganda, and four of its young guests have gone viral in the U.S. and probably don’t even know it.
According to multiple sources, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and her newborn twins (for now we’re calling them “Bad” and “Boujee”) have checked out of the hospital and settled into their luxurious-mansion rental in Malibu, Calif.
