What does Beyonce have to do with 'Fifty Shades of Grey'?

This Thursday, Fifty Shades of Grey fans will get their first peek at the film when its trailer finally debuts. But much like its teaser, the full-length trailer won’t premiere on any website. Instead, it will debut on the Queen of Pop’s Instagram account, which prompts an important question: What does Beyoncé have to do with Fifty Shades of Grey?

So far, the only connection between Beyoncé and the film is her Instagram account, and the fact that she can be heard singing what sounds like a slowed down, sultry version of “Crazy In Love” at the end of the teaser. Could that be her only connection to the movie? It’s a possibility. But just in case it’s not, we’ve come up with a few more theories: READ FULL STORY

BET Awards 2014: Full list of winners

Last night, Beyoncé dominated the Chris Rock-hosted BET Awards in L.A., picking up statues for both Best Collaboration (with Jay Z) for her ode to chairs “Drunk in Love” as well as Best Female R&B/Pop Artist, beating out Janelle Monáe, Jhené Aiko, K. Michelle, Rihanna, and Tamar Braxton.

Pharrell Williams continued his big year by taking home the award for Best Male R&B/Pop Artist as well as the night’s biggest prize, Video of the Year, for “Happy.” (Beyoncé was nominated twice in that category, but clearly split her own vote.)

The night wasn’t without a few (inadvertent) surprise moments. The screen misspelled Lionel Richie’s name wrong during his Lifetime Achievement Award acceptance speech, and Robin Thicke made everyone uncomfortable with yet another public plea for wife Paula Patton to take him back. Perhaps it’s time for Patton to burn him a mix tape of Taylor Swift.

Check out the full list of winners below. READ FULL STORY

Which Beyonce rumors did we make up? -- QUIZ

By now, we all know that Beyoncé is part of the Illuminati… or is she?

When video footage of Bey’s sister Solange kicking Jay Z was released, conspiracy theorists everywhere had the new fodder they’ve been looking for: An opportunity to make up more rumors about what’s really going on in Beyoncé‘s life.

Beyoncé is no stranger to these nutty theories. In fact, there are so many out-there ones that we’ve gathered together the most popular and sprinkled in our own completely made-up, baseless rumors about Queen B. Warning to all the gossipmongers out there: Nothing below is true. (Probably.)

Stewart, Kimmel, Fallon talk Solange/Jay Z elevator fight -- VIDEO

TMZ released video footage of Solange Knowles attacking brother-in-law Jay Z in an elevator as Beyonce stood by — and naturally, the media was on it.

The video came out Monday, and since then, cable talking heads have been tirelessly trying to figure out what caused the incident — because, apparently, there’s nothing better to talk about. Jon Stewart mocked all the coverage of the elevator affair on The Daily Show Wednesday night, showing clips from outlets like CNN and Fox News and poking fun at their baseless theories — including that Jay Z has been cheating on Beyoncé, and the mogul wanted to ditch his wife and her sis to go to Rihanna’s party after the Met Gala. “With all these incredibly well-sourced motives, I can’t believe Solange didn’t spend the entire Met Ball kicking Jay Z in the face,” Stewart said. “Why wait until the elevator?”

Whoopi Goldberg: Jay Z had the right to hit Solange Knowles back -- VIDEO

So it seems everyone has now seen that infamous post-Met Gala video of Solange Knowles allegedly giving brother-in-law Jay Z a beatdown in a hotel elevator while her sister/his wife Beyonce idly stands by. And everyone has an opinion on it.

The ladies of The View chose to share their theories on Tuesday, with Whoopi Goldberg causing a minor controversy of her own.

“I think Solange was quite ready for [Jay Z] to do whatever he was gonna do,” Goldberg said. “If anybody hits you, you have the right [to hit back]. I know that many people are raised in a very different way, but if a woman hits you, to me, you have the right to hit her back. If I slap a man, he has every right to slap me back. Every right.”

Remember: The only people who really know what went down in that elevator are Solange, Jay Z, Beyonce, and that security guard who prevented all hell from really breaking loose. Still, you can watch the View co-hosts’ full array of hypotheses about the incident here: READ FULL STORY

Beyonce Instagrams pictures of happier times with Solange

In the aftermath of that now-infamous Met Ball video — which appears to show Solange Knowles physically abusing her brother-in-law Jay-Z in an elevator — some news sources have speculated that the fight stemmed from Jay’s desire to attend Rihanna’s after-party alone. None of the figures involved in the altercation have released a statement one way or the other — but why talk when a picture is worth 1,000 words, right?

At least, that seems to be Beyoncé’s approach to the situation. One day after attending the Met Gala, Beyonce posted this prayer to Instagram:

Beyonce covers Time's '100 Most Influential People' issue

Time-100.jpg

Bow down.

The cover of Time‘s annual “100 Most Influential People” issue has been revealed — and its star is none other than Beyoncé.

As is tradition, each Most Influential pick is accompanied by a short explanation written by a famous admirer. In this case, Lean In creator Sheryl Sandberg weighs in on what makes Bey worthy of number one: “Beyoncé doesn’t just sit at the table. She builds a better one,” Sandberg explains. “In the past year, Beyoncé has sold out the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour while being a full-time mother. Her secret: hard work, honesty and authenticity. And her answer to the question, ‘What would you do if you weren’t afraid?’ appears to be ‘Watch me. I’m about to do it.’ Then she adds, ‘You can, too.'” READ FULL STORY

All the compliments to Beyonce in her 'Out' cover story, ranked

Beyonce-cover-of-Out.jpg

By now, we all know that Beyoncé woke up flawless. And, apparently, that lyric isn’t an exaggeration.

Bey’s on the latest cover of Out magazine, and Out magazine really wants us to know that Beyoncé is great. Flawless, even! Although the cover story’s author wasn’t able to snag an in-person interview with the Queen, he did get to talk to her team — all of whom had nothing but glowing things to say about their boss. No, really: The overarching theme of the profile is “Beyoncé is perfect.” (Given the subject matter, maybe this shouldn’t be a surprise.)
