Miami’s Sun Life Stadium was the place to be Wednesday night! Music’s reigning power couple Beyoncé and Jay Z selected the venue to kick off their On the Run tour, which will take the multiple Grammy winners across North America and to Europe through September.
The concert began with “’03 Bonnie and Clyde.” Beyoncé wore a fishnet mask and a butt-baring leotard, while her husband looked trendy by sporting a blazer, a beanie and sunglasses for the opening number.
Beyoncé’s black bodysuit was bespoke. The Atelier Versace design featured a plunging neckline, which was covered with black sequin netting and accented with a silver zipper. The R&B diva wore another custom-made Atelier Versace bodysuit later in the show. The second look featured a variety of brightly colored prints from the fashion label’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection, including leopard print and Greek keys.
During one of his many costume changes, Jay Z sported a custom “99 Problems” jersey by Rodarte. The hip-hop heavyweight also wore leather jacket 5, tux pant 25 and T-shirt 3 from BLK DNM.
Beyoncé will air a series of segments from her recent ‘Mrs Carter Show World Tour’ on HBO, it has been announced. Beyoncé: X10 will be shown as 10, four-minute instalments every Sunday night at 8.55pm ET/PT, ahead of the final season of True Blood.

Beyonce’s last album was packed with star-studded features from the likes of Jay Z, Frank Ocean, Timbaland, Pharrell and more. However, it could be argued that the most important contributions came from an unknown talent: Boots.
The elusive singer/songwriter/producer worked on more than half of the tracks, producing “Haunted,” “Heaven” and “Blue.”
It’s clear there’s a real creative chemistry between Bey and Boots. And that chemistry shows up again on “Dreams,” a just-released track from Boots featuring vocals from the Queen herself.
The smooth song is one of the tracks off Boots’ upcoming mixtape, WinterSpringSummerFall.
Boots worked on many tracks on BEYONCE. One of the songs he didn’t work on, however, was the album opener, “Pretty Hurts.” The song was produced by Ammo (who works with DJ Luke) and was written by Sia.
In a new interview with NYTimes, Sia mentions that Beyonce wasn’t the first one with the song. The track was sent to both Katy Perry and Rihanna. RiRi’s people passed, while the song just got lost in Katy’s email shuffle.
“Pretty Hurts” was announced as the new single from the visual album “Beyoncé”. VEVO premiered the music video last Thursday, so make sure to watch it right below!

The visual album BEYONCE is available on iTunes, be sure to purchase it if you still haven’t.
Beyoncé graces the cover of Time magazine’s annual 100 Most Influential People Issue this year, and Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg explains why The Queen still reigns supreme.
Sandberg, the COO of Facebook, says Bey should be admired for “[raising] her voice both on- and offstage to urge women to be independent and lead.” In fact, Beyoncé has recently raised the question (and controversy) of feminism in popular culture. While many have praised the “Blow” singer for owning her sexuality and embracing its power, others have criticized her for “leveraging sexuality to get ahead.”
Regardless, one can’t ignore the power of sales.
Bey’s self-titled fifth studio album was released in December 2013, with no prior announcement. The debut sparked a near hysterical fan response, and it became the fastest-selling album in iTunes history.
Other celebs who made this year’s influential list include, Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey, openly gay NBA player Jason Collins and Scandal star Kerry Washington.

BEYONCÉ loves surprising her fans – from her many hair looks to her last unexpected album – and now it seems that she might be heading on tour with her husband. The singer is rumoured to be set to announce a 20-stadium tour that will start in late June along with Jay Z – although neither party has even so much as Instagrammed a teaser yet.
Both stars finished their respective tours earlier this year, and have performed their single Drunk In Love together several times – including at this year’s Grammy Awards, a Super Bowl party and Beyoncé’s O2 Arena gig.
With the tour reportedly set to kick off on July 4 in New York, fans won’t have to wait long to see music’s most famous couple take to the stage if the whispers prove accurate. Although, British fans may be disappointed since it seems that the tour will be US-only.
No official announcement was made yet. Keep checking back for updates.
