After delaying the release for a week, here’s Beyonce’s latest video ‘Run The World (Girls) , inspired by non other than Irish dancer Michael Flatley and his dance shows! Watch below and tell us what you think.
Ahead of the video for her latest single ‘Run The World (Girls)’, fans have been treated to a new video by Bey for the US campaign promoting fitness and health for young people. The upbeat song ‘Move Your Body’ is a re-work of her previous hit ‘Get Me Bodied’ and the project is being backed by Michelle Obama. What do you think of Bey’s moves?

Matthew Knowles releases a statement explaining why he will longer manage his daughter, Beyoncé:
The decision for Beyoncé and Music World Entertainment to part was mutual. We did great things together, and I know that she will continue to conquer new territories in music and entertainment. Currently, I am very focused on the tremendous investment that our record label has made in the gospel/inspirational genre of music and on our supremely talented roster of artists, including Trin-i-tee 5:7, Brian Courtney Wilson, Juanita Bynum, Micah Stampley, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Pastor Rudy and others.
Music World will continue its partnership with Sony with Destiny’s Child and UK female group From Above, as well as management. We will also continue to develop the Music World family of labels: Music World Country/Compadre, Music World Kids and Music World Music. In Music World’s repositioning it will not continue its label/management role with Columbia/Sony artist Tiffany Evans.
Business is business and family is family. I love my daughter and am very proud of who she is and all that she has achieved. I look forward to her continued great success.
Seem’s like Beyonce is one of the many that has joined the Odd Future fan club.
Bey and Odd Future member Frank Ocean hit up the studio to work on new music. Ocean tweeted:
this is the room i’m working in this day. not to brag but man, this is surreal. like..she’s singing my songs. if time were to stop right now, the past couple weeks would be near the top of the highlight reel for my short time on earth.
Odd Future have also recently been pictured with the Neptunes in studio.

Here’s a preview of the never aired/ never released/ let’s just make a video, video for Alicia Keys and Beyonce’s ‘Put It In A Love Song’!
Still no release date….but perhaps an unexpected ‘leak’….soon? What did you think of the clip?
Beyonce revealed she had donated all monies earned from a gig to help the earthquake relief efforts in Haiti, once she came under fire alongside Mariah Carey and Usher for being hired by Libyan dictator Gadhafi in the past!
All monies paid to Beyoncé for her performance at a private party at Nikki Beach St. Barts on New Year’s Eve 2009, including the commissions paid to her booking agency, were donated to the earthquake relief efforts in Haiti, over a year ago,” said the singer’s rep in a statement to CNN. “Once it became known that the third party promoter was linked to the Gaddafi family, the decision was made to put that payment to a good cause.”
Beyonce speaks ‘openly’ about sex in an upcoming interview for an edition of Cosmopolitan.
You should put on good music and something that makes you feel great…..I love a pair of high, sexy stilettos with a beautiful dress, but you have to find out what works for you – whether it’s doing the whole smoky eyes thing or a natural look. And never be predictable. Mix it up, surprise him, change your hair – be the woman he knows with a little bit of a twist….The most alluring thing a woman can have is confidence. You can be beautiful but if you’re not secure in yourself, you don’t come across as sexy…..You have to feel good about yourself to make others feel good about you. Don’t focus on the bits you don’t like….Look at yourself in a different way and work out what it is you do like.”
