Yikes. In a recent interview with Q Magazine, Warpaint's Theresa Wayman basically slut shames Beyoncé and Rihanna.
“It just gets worse,” she adds. “Every song on Beyonce’s last album has her basically looking like a slut and she does not need to do that. She’s gorgeous and so fucking talented. And they all take it as women’s liberation!”

Update: Wayman has issued an apology/clarification on her comments via the band's Facebook.

Rumor has it that Beyoncé and Jay Z are planning a national tour as co-headliners this summer. Supposedly called "The Mr. and Mrs. Carter Tour," it will run from June 13 through August 6, with eventual European dates planned as well.

Gambles, an artist who released one of my favourite albums of last year with his debut Trust, has announced a new EP titled I Can't Keep Still When It Come To You. The release is due for April 28th and you can check out the lead track from it, titled "You Won't Remind Me", in the replies. The track was mixed by BOOTS who is more recently known for working on Beyoncé's latest album.

To complete Beyoncé's aggressive cultural takeover, there is now a soundboard based on her self-titled album from last year. It's flawless.

Diplo and The Weeknd both took the time to remix Beyoncé's hit "Drunk In Love" this weekend. They're both streaming in the replies. These come on the heels of the Kanye and Detail remixes from earlier this weekend.
Ryan Dennehy on 02/16/14 - 01:12 PM
Beyoncé saw the release of two remixes to her single "Drunk In Love" today. One was by Detail, who released a seven minute version of unused vocals and production from when he worked on the original version called "Drunken Love;" the other was by Kanye West, who extends the track and throws in a verse of his own. Hear the Detail remix in the replies.

Tshepo Mokoena, writing for the Guardian, asks if we should have a problem with Beyonce's "Drunk in Love" due to the domestic violence portions.
There was a degree of criticism from blogs and the mainstream media around the time of the album's release, although much of the dust from that seemed to have settled up until Sunday night's Grammy performance. But why? On a record that critics lauded as Beyonce's most feminist to date, and one she proudly dubs her most honest so far, it's strange to see two major stars shoehorn a domestic violence reference into a track that otherwise celebrates love and all the glory of marital hook-ups. Plus, it's annoying to have a few lines detract from...

Beyonce has written an essay titled, "Gender Equality is a Myth!" for the Shriver Report.
We need to stop buying into the myth about gender equality. It isn't a reality yet. Today, women make up half of the U.S. workforce, but the average working woman earns only 77 percent of what the average working man makes. But unless women and men both say this is unacceptable, things will not change. Men have to demand that their wives, daughters, mothers and sisters earn more—commensurate with their qualifications and not their gender. Equality will be achieved when men and women are granted equal pay and equal respect.

Target will not be selling the latest self-titled album from Beyoncé. Most physical retailers will receive and have the album in stores this Friday, December 20th. In other Beyoncé news, the album sold over 828k worldwide in the iTunes Store in just its first three days and also broke the US first week album sales record with over 617k sold.
"At Target we focus on offering our guests a wide assortment of physical CDs, and when a new album is available digitally before it is available physically, it impacts demand and sales projections," Target spokesperson Erica Julkowski tells Billboard.
Drew Beringer on 12/16/13 - 05:55 PM
Beyoncé's new self-titled record sold more than 430k in its first day of release and is projected to sell more than 600k (all digital, of course) and debut at #1 on the Billboard. Remember that the record was released this past Friday, so that's 600k+ in four day span. For comparison, her first day numbers outsold Katy Perry’s Prism (286k in its first week), Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP (258k), Miley Cyrus' Bangerz (270k), and Kanye West's Yeezus (327k), while her total first week will outsell her husband's (Jay Z) first week output with Magna Carta Holy Grail (528k). Basically, holy crap. It'll be interesting to see what her Friday-Thursday total is - I wonder if Beyoncé could have been the...

So, uh, Beyoncé just dropped her fifth studio album, a self-titled effort, with no fanfare or buzz on iTunes. Not only does Beyoncé contain fourteen new songs but each song has a video accompaniment. Bow down to the Queen.

Jay-Z and Beyoncé are reportedly expecting their second child.
That's right: Superstar supermom Beyoncé is expecting her second child with hubby Jay-Z, multiple sources exclusively confirm to E! News.

Update: Looks like some more information has come out disputing E!'s report.
Beyoncé addressed the rumors over the weekend with an Instagram post, according to the Daily Mail, writing, "I can't stop the rumors from starting, and I can't really change peoples minds who believe them, all I can do is sit back and laugh at these low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me."

Beyonce got caught for lip-syncing her rendition of "The National Anthem" from yesterday's performance at President Obama's inauguration. It's also worth noting that Kelly Clarkson DID perform when she sang "My Country Tis' of Thee."
