Billboards who? It was already predicted that the BeyHive was going to get shaded, and mother remained unbothered! Instead, Jay Z put on his second show for his B-Sides concert, and Bey was in attendance. Check out photos of the two of them leaving the concert in the gallery.

To Beyoncé, Solange, Kelly and Angie
When I was asked to write an open letter to you, I thought about the hundreds of texts and emails that I have sent to you on holidays and on Sundays, when I ask you to say a prayer to thank God for each other. Every day, I wake up thinking about how much I love, admire and cherish each of you.
I gave birth to two of you, but I have four incredible daughters. Writing this brought to mind all the ways you guys have been such a blessing to me.
When I’m feeling sad or not-so-cute or maybe a little sorry for myself, and you all include me in your group chat and tell me how hot I still look or how cool I am. Maybe you send me a crazy YouTube video. What actually works best is a cute photo of my grandchildren.
I remember slumber parties after my divorce, when we watched old movies and ate a lot of ice cream. I felt so loved and supported. The roles were reversed, and it was ME who needed nurturing.
I remember my first date when every one of you weighed in on what I should wear.
The obvious things about all of you are apparent. You are all strong, beautiful, intelligent and smart businesswomen. You are so much more than that. You are all kind, generous and you treat people well. You are all amazing mothers, wives, daughters, sisters and friends. All of you have total self-respect.
Beyoncé, I wish people could see how you are when you’re not in front of the camera or on the stage. How compassionate and kind you are to people, how you look them right in the eye when you speak to them. How hard you work, how generous you are with your time and money. How you don’t care if anyone knows about it because you do it from the heart. I wish they could see you with the Make-A-Wish Foundation kids, how patient you are and how your love has helped to extend lives. Yes, you are a huge star, but you have somehow managed to stay grounded and humble in the wake of all your success.
Solange, I knew when you were born three days late that you would walk to the beat of your own drum. You were always my rebel warrior! Always defending the underdog and fighting for what you believe in. I remember you, at 10 years old, started a petition to remove a bad teacher, and your dad and I were so proud of you. I love that you do not let others define who you are, or what you are. Whether in your music, fashion or your life, you truly are your own incredible, unapologetic person! As tough as you are, you will drop everything to take care of someone you love.
Kelly, I know without a doubt that you were a true gift from God. You came to live with us when you were only 11 years old. You were the sweetest, most kind person I had ever met and you still are. You are also a true survivor. You never give up. Your discipline and drive always inspires me. You make me want to take better care of my body and constantly motivate me to exercise and take time for myself. You have the best listening skills and are a loyal friend to many. I’ve seen you take the jewelry off of your arm and give it to someone because you wanted to make them feel good.
Angie, you are my niece, but we have always been more like mother and daughter! You were always so mature, always challenging me and questioning why. (Fortunately I never believed in the “Because I said so” or “I’m the adult” crap, either.) I always trusted that you would look out for and protect Solange, Kelly and Beyoncé, and you did! You still do sometimes. You are so smart and perceptive, and you see through bullshit right away! You’ve always had our backs. Our own family fixer!! You know I call you Olivia Pope!!!!!
I’m often asked, what was my most proud moment? I would have to say it was at my recent wedding, when all four of you said in your own words that I taught by example and that I helped to make you the women you are today!!!! That was truly my proudest moment!
All my love,
The pair dined on vegan fare at Gracias Madre in West Hollywood but we have a feeling Jay was paying more attention to his wife than to the food …
The pop goddess wore her hair in loose curls and wore a denim pencil skirt with a chambray button down — completely unbuttoned — carrying a black leather bucket bag. Guess Bey was feeling frisky today!
Knowles recently announced she’d launch a vegan food delivery service so maybe she was doing some research for her new business, loading up on some of the best healthy meatless food in LA.
Hey, Queen Bey is living proof that you’re not starving yourself by eating vegan — you can still keep your voluptuous curves! Lawd have mercy!

Completely Unbothered! At least that’s how it seems, being that The Carters were spotted out and about in New York City, in the middle of a winter storm. The couple met up with legendary Murder Inc head honcho, Irv Gotti. If you recall, Irv had kind of let the cat out of the bag in Nov. 2013, when he started tweeting #DrunkLove, referring to the couple’s smash single, prior to it being released. I wonder if this will fuel the fire of an upcoming duet album that Detail was talking about last week? Only time will tell! Until then, check out the photos in our gallery.
It’s not something most people could pull off, but Beyonce looked incredible in a hot pink suit on Monday. The 33-year-old’s bright look flashed her ample cleavage as she enjoyed a parents-only outing with her husband Jay Z in New York City . Beyonce was clearly looking forward to a date night despite the Big Apple chill, and stepped out hours after posting a video of her sublime dancing skills to Instagram.
The Love On Top singer polished off her complexion with a slick of scarlet lipstick and a touch of golden eye shadow. With her curly locks pulled back into a relaxed pony tail, Beyonce paired her bold suit with a festive top and narrow belt that nipped in at her slender waistline. She trailed just behind her husband, who led the way in a beige fur-trimmed coat and faded jeans.
Forget about rumours! It’s OFFICIAL.

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.

In just its sixth week on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love” (featuring Jay Z) jumps 5-1 to mark her sixth leader on the list.
