Hip-hop’s royal couple are beginning their joint tour, but what can fans look forward to?
It’s safe to say that the past few months have not been the greatest for Beyonce and Jay-Z. While the Carters are undoubtedly still hip-hop’s most prolific power couple, some recent bad publicity has seen their star ever so slightly tarnished. First there was the now infamous Solange/Jay-Z elevator fight video and ever since then rumors have circulated that the couple might be experiencing some marital problems. But lets forget about all the drama for now, because Beyonce and Jay-Z are hitting the road together! The ‘On the Run’ tour begins Wednesday night (June 25th) in Miami and expectations are high. But what can we really expect from a joint Beyonce and Jay-Z tour?

With the "On The Run" tour starting tonight, what do Jay and Bey really have left to prove?
Over the 13 years since their first collaboration, 03 Bonnie and Clyde, Beyonce and Jay Z are doing better than ever career-wise. Both are considered trendsetters and some of the (if not the) best at what they do. Both had innovative, best selling albums released last year. The media follows every move of the high-profile couple and their daughter, Blue Ivy. Now, with this summer’s joint stadium tour, Bey and Jay are about to cement their place as music royalty.
Flawless? They'll have to be, to pull this off.
The tour kicks off Wednesday, June 25, in Miami and will hit 16 US cities – not exactly a full run, but it could be that Mr and Mrs Carter are just testing the waters for a larger endeavor down the line.
The seemingly perfect family may not be entirely how they appear. Beyoncé and Jay-Z's relationship has been heavily scrutinised since the Met Gala elevator incident in which Beyoncé's sister, Solange, was caught on camera assaulting her brother in law. The couple are rumoured to, not only be divorcing, but also having another child together.
Has Beyoncé scrapped her reported plans to divorce Jay-Z as she is pregnant? The 32-year-old singer and her husband of 6 years Jay-Z AKA Shawn Carter are rumored to be divorcing following allegations that Jay-Z is frequently unfaithful.
Beyonce and Jay-Z attended the Met Gala together but trouble with Solange shortly followed.
The veneer of happy family life began to crack earlier this year when Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Beyoncé's sister Solange Knowles appeared together at the Met Gala in New York. The event, held on May 5th, saw Solange attack Jay-Z whilst they were in an elevator at The Standard, a Manhattan hotel. Footage was obtained by TMZ which clearly shows Solange hitting and kicking her brother-in-law.

Someone has started a Change.org petition aimed at getting Beyonce to brush Blue Ivy's hair. Yep.
We’ve heard some pretty crazy things in our time but this one really takes the cake. Someone has actually taken the time to set up a change.org petition to get Beyonce to comb Blue Ivy’s hair. Yep, there are people out there that care that much about Beyonce’s two-year-old daughter’s mane that they are campaigning to get it combed.
The petition asks Beyonce to comb her two-year-old daughter's hair
The description on the page reads: "As a woman who understands the importance of hair care. It's disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture. The parents of Blue Ivy. Sean Carter A.K.A Jay-Z and Beyoncé has failed at numerous attempts of doing Blue Ivy Hair. This matter has escalated to the child developing matted dreads and lint balls. Please let's get the word out to properly care for Blue Ivy hair.”
It wasn't a snub, and apparently Kris Jenner wasn't too bothered.
The Kardashians' momager wasn't worried about Mr. and Mrs. Carter missing the wedding.
Solange has been keeping herself hidden away after attacking Beyoncé's husband Jay Z in an elevator.
Beyoncé and Solange Knowles have been pictured together for the first time since the embarrassing and disturbing bust-up between Beyoncé's little sister and husband Jay Z in an elevator after the Met Gala earlier this month.
Leaked footage showed Solange, who is also a pop star, lashing out at the rapper whilst he shielded himself but did not hit back. The group's bodyguard hit the emergency stop button and hauled Solange away from Jay Z with Beyoncé demurely avoiding the melee.
The Knowles-Carter family have been pictured together in happy photos to reassure their fans that all is well again but Jay Z was a notable absence from last night's Chime For Change event that the two sisters attended together.

According to sources, Beyonce parted with a hefty sum of money for her pet charity.
Any and all elevator-related incidents from last month were forgotten at Tuesday night’s Chime for Change anniversary event, held by Gucci director Creative Director Frida Giannini and T Magazine editor-in-chief Deborah Needleman at Gucci Fifth Avenue in New York City, which Beyonce and Solange Knowles attended together. The sisters rocked complementary outfits, with Bey opting for a white halter jumpsuit and Solange sporting white trousers and a bright orange shirt. Very 90s, we approve.

More importantly, Bey reportedly donated a substantial amount of money toward the good cause. "At the Gucci Chime for Change event in NYC, Beyoncé just announced a personal donation of $500,000 to the charity," Women's Wear Daily tweeted. We’re calling that Reason #432556 to like Beyonce.
Will Beyoncé divorce Jay Z after cheating with her bodyguard, Julius?
The internet is abuzz with reports that Beyoncé and Jay Z are preparing to divorce after the rumor that the R&B singer had been cheating on her rapper husband emerged in the wake of the now-infamous post-Met Gala elevator fight. Sources have indicated to Star Magazine that the 'Halo' singer and Julius de Boer, her bodyguard, have been having a long-term affair and that Jay Z's suspicions were alerted long ago. We must make it clear that Star magazine don't exactly have a glowing record of accurate exclusives.
"Jay definitely thinks that there was and may still be something romantic going on between Bey and Julius," a source told the publication. "He wanted to fire Julius last February, but Beyoncé said, 'Julius isn't going anywhere.'"
"They've spent a lot of time together behind closed doors," the insider continued. "He's even stayed in her hotel room." Rumors of a secret relationship between Bey and Julius first arose back in 2009 when the pair were snapped leaving a hotel in Berlin. In the photo Beyoncé's mouth is strangely covered by her hand whilst Julius mouth is allegedly covered in red lipstick.

Beyonce and Jay-Z chose not to attend Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding on Saturday (24th May) and we have a few possible reasons why.
It was meant to be the wedding of the year, some may even say the century with the amount of fuss surrounding the day almost rivalling a royal wedding, yet Beyoncé and Jay-Z chose to miss Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's ceremony. Why?
Beyonce and Jay-Z at the Met Gala.
We can't be entirely sure but Beyoncé and Jay-Z decided to spend their weekend thousands of miles from the newlyweds in the Hamptons rather than trek to Florence via Paris. Jay-Z is ranked amongst Kanye's closest friends, so it seems somewhat bizarre that they would have missed his wedding!

Carter-Knowles Camp Content?: The Jay Z/Solange brouhaha confusion still hasn't been publically illuminated but the Carter-Knowles family seems to be intent on proving to the world that everything is just fine, fine, fine, thank you very much after footage leaked showing the singer attacking her rapper brother-in-law in a lift. Beyoncé's statement did little to explain her sister's violence but her newly-posted family photos do a good job of sweeping it all under the rug, for better or worse.
The pair have been pictured together for the first time since their vicious Met Gala altercation.
Beyoncé has posted a new set of pictures on her Tumblr page to let the world know that she, her husband Jay Z and her sister Solange are still part of a happy family despite the shocking violence witnessed last week. The Knowles-Carter family drama was plastered all over the new when CCTV footage showing Solange attacking Jay Z inside an elevator after the Met Gala leaked online.
Jay Z & Beyoncé Have Been Dealing With The Aftermath Of The Vicious Met Gala Fight & Footage Leak.
It's still unclear what caused the singer to attack her brother-in-law but there has been a cryptic back and forth between Beyoncé and Solange since the incident. The pair have posted photos of each other on their respective Instagram pages as if to show that they're still united and have moved on from the baffling incident.
Jay Z and Beyonce have released a mock-trailer for a 'never coming' out movie called 'Run,' to promote their upcoming joint tour. Here are our ten highlights from the 'trailer.'
In a pretty spectacular move to distract us from the Solange vs. Jay Z saga, the power couple have released a mock-film trailer to promote their upcoming joint tour. The clip, which claims to be a trailer for a film called 'Run,' was released on Saturday and hot damn, it's a smorgasbord of all the Beyonce and Jay Z stuff we love so much.

The Knowles sisters are showing that they are united.
This seems to indicate that the 32 year-old singer wants to clarify to everyone that she and her younger sister aren't holding any grudges against each other, after footage leaked of Jay Z being attacked by Solange in an elevator.
Had enough of the Carters yet? Yeah, we didn't think so.
We’d totally pay to see Beyonce and Jay Z’s new action flick. Music’s first couple just released the trailer for Run this past Saturday – with no prior warning or promotion, in classic Mr. and Mrs. Carter style. The trailer is a star-packed event, featuring the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal, Don Cheadle, Blake Lively, Emmy Rossum, Sean Penn, Guillermo Diaz and Rashida and Kidada Jones.
Bey and Jay are pros at keeping everyone talking. This time, it's about their creative endeavors.
The trailer continues the couple’s favorite Bonnie and Clyde theme and sees them shooting guns, evading the law and generally looking really cool. But no action flick would be complete without a couple of emotional moments, so the short clip also features numerous heart-to-hearts with the aforementioned co-stars.

Beyoncé is ensuring no one has the wrong idea about her relationship with her sister Solange. The singer posted a series of pictures of the pair together on her Instagram account following Solange’s highly publicised fight with Beyoncé’s husband Jay-Z.
Beyonce and Jay-Z mere hours before Jay-Z's fight with Solange.
Solange and Jay-Z appear to have had a disagreement which ended in blows at the beginning of May. The incident occurred the night of the New York Met Gala on Saturday (3rd May) and Solange appears to have attacked Jay-Z in an elevator at the Standard Hotel. Surveillance footage seemingly shows a tuxedo clad Jay-Z being kicked and punched by Solange before the two security men accompanying the pair forcibly hauled Solange away from the rapper. We’re still not sure what the disagreement was about and, although the pair and Beyoncé have released a statement, they did not allude to the reasons behind the fight.
Beyonce has released an official statement regarding the altercation between her sister Solange and her husband Jay Z, which took place after the Met Gala.
We’re no closer to finding out what really happened between Solange and Jay Z at the Met Gala, although the famous family have released a statement regarding the incident. Beyonce addressed the physical altercation, which saw her sister Solange attack her husband Jay Z in a lift after the Met Ball.
Jay Z and his wife Beyonce put on a union front earlier in the evening at the Met Gala
Beyonce explained: "As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it…Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologised to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.”
Rachel Roy's name keeps coming up in the Solange/Jay-Z saga, but who is the fashion designer?
Fashion designer Rachel Roy has found herself at the center of speculation surrounding the now infamous Solange Knowles/Jay-Z elevator video. The 40 year old designer has been a fixture on the celebrity scene for years now, but this week her profile has been raised immensely thanks to her rumored part in the Knowles' drama. So beyond the rumors, what do we actually know about Rachel Roy?
Rachel Roy is rumoured to be the cause of Jay-Z and Solange's argument
California native Rachel got her start in the fashion world after moving to New York to work in retail and setting herself up as a stylist for magazines and music videos. But her first big career break came when she landed an internship at Rocawear, the fashion label of Jay-Z and then business partner Damon Dash. Dash and Roy soon became close and in 1999 their daughter Ava was born. However Dash was also in a relationship with singer Aaliyah at the tine which continued until her untimely death in 2001.

As usual, it was more complicated than we all thought.
The story of how Solange Knowles attacked Jay Z after the Met Gala was bizarre enough on its own, but it sounds even stranger since Rihanna’s name was mentioned. According to the New York Daily News, the younger Knowles sister lashed out at her brother in law after he said he was going to Rihanna’s after party without his wife. Apparently the tension had been brewing for a while, but it boiled over when Solange, Beyonce and Jay Z entered the now infamous Standard Hotel elevator.
Solange Knowles - the plot thickens.
According to the Daily News’ source, that was when Jay Z announced that he would attend Rihanna’s party, instead of going home with his wife.

What is the Twitterverse saying about the now infamous Solange Knowles beatdown of Jay-Z?
The internet is a funny place today. Unless you've been living under a rock you've heard all about Solange Knowles and Jay-Z getting in one heck of a scuffle in a lift at the Standard Hotel after the Met Gala. No-one's quite sure what went down, but we do know that Solange launched herself at the rapper before being dragged off him by a man who appears to be a bodyguard.
Solange Knowles Beat Jay-Z In An Elevator
The video was obtained by TMZ, and shows Solange clearly trying to attack her brother-in-law and father of her niece, Blue Ivy. Now, all that everyone is interested in is what provoked Solange's outburst. The footage has no audio, which has led to a global internet campaign to guess what it was that Jay Z may have said to the singer. The hashtag #WhatJayZSaidToSolange has been trending since the video surfaced, here's a few of our favourite tweets on the topic.

Shocking elevator footage shows Solange trying to batter her brother-in-law.
Solange Knowles' relationship with her brother-in-law Jay Z has become the subject of intense public scrutiny today as yet another celebrity family's dirty laundry was aired for the entire world to see. Well, sort of: the soul singer set upon the rapper and husband to her sister Beyoncé behind what she thought were the closed doors of an elevator whilst descending from a post-Met Gala soiree.
After A Night At The Met Gala, Jay Z Was Attacked By Beyoncé's Sister, Solange.
The footage shows the 27 year-old mother-of-one lashing out at Jay Z with both her arms and legs as the group's bodyguard attempts to pull her away. Jay Z doesn't make any move to hit back at Solange, rather he pushes her legs away from his chest when she aims high with a stiletto-footed kick. Solange's limbs reach their target on more than one occasion, prompting the bodyguard to hit what looks like the emergency stop button to prevent the scene spilling out in front of the waiting paps.
The 32 year-old singer first met Chelsea Lee James in 2009, when she invited a teenager on stage during a concert in Australia in 2009
Beyoncé has always been fan friendly, so it really upset her when she found out on of the singer's most devoted fans had passed away.
The 32 year-old songstress met a British teen fan, who idolized her, for the first time in 2009.
Chelsea Lee James's dreams came true when she was invited by Beyoncé to join her onstage for a performance of 'Halo,' at a concert in Australia.

If Beyonce’s solo 'Mrs Cater Show' world tour is anything to go by expect a massive production that will surely only get bigger with Hova onboard. As for Jay-Z, he loves the combined tour gimmick. Last year he hit the road with Justin Timberlake for the 'Legends of Summer' tour and previously he teamed with Kanye West for the 'Watch the Throne' tour.

Beyonce has been accused of photoshopping the increasingly popular (and stupid) 'thigh gap' in to a holiday snap. Here's why we think the accusations are nonsense.
There’s been a lot of furore lately from people who have been accusing Beyonce of photoshopping in a thigh gap on to one of her Tumblr pics. It’s been claimed that the Drunk in Love singer has digitally altered an image of her playing golf in a rather skimpy little number. Queen Bey, who is wearing a pair of striped hot pants and a pink crop top in the snap is just about to score what is probably a hole in one (she’s perfect, of course it is) and it has to be said, the singer’s legs are looking exceptionally slim.
Beyonce has never been afraid of flaunting her thighs in skimpy outfits
Beyonce is currently in the Dominican Republic with hubby Jay-Z, where the pair are celebrating their sixth wedding anniversary. Practically as soon as she put up the photo a torrent of fans accused her of photoshopping the image to make it seem as though her thighs are slimmer than they are. Beyonce has been looking very trim lately (not exactly unusual for her), although she has never exactly been famous for her slim thighs. This doesn’t seem to have ever bothered Bey, who has never shied away from wearing skimpy outfits on stage and flaunting her thighs. She always seems pretty proud of what her momma gave her, and so she should, she looks absolutely fantastic.

Solange Knowles Danced With Beyonce at Coachella 2014

Salena Gomez has fired her parents as her managers, but did you know Usher and Beyonce did the same?
Selena Gomez has reportedly decided she no longer needs any more parental advisory in her career and fired her manager parents. Selena’s parents had been managing her career since the beginning, but it now seems the former Disney star has outgrown mum and dad's guidance. Firing your parents might seem like the ultimate act of rebellion, but for some stars it was just a career move that had to happen. Here’s five famous faces who, like Selena, eventually had to decide it was time to give mum and dad the pink slip.

Lorde has spoken out against photoshop, explaining "flaws are OK". These other celebrities agree and also opt for au naturel when it comes to their photo shoots.
One of the reasons that we love Lorde so much is that she defies the usual standards of celebrity. The 17 year old has previously posted photos of herself on her Instagram account with a caption explaining she is wearing acne cream in the pic.
'Royals' singer Lorde has spoken out against photoshopping
Recently the ‘Royals’ singer shared two photographs of herself from Lollapalooza music festival in Santiago, Chile. One photograph of her had been photoshopped to smooth over her skin, while the other was natural. Lorde commented on the photos, ‘i find this curious - two photos from today, one edited so my skin is perfect and one real. remember flaws are ok :-)’.

Kim Kardashian has fired back at those who criticize the 10% she donates to charity from her eBay sales. How does she fare up against these other philanthropic celebrities?
It must seem to poor Kim Kardashian like she can’t get anything right! Kardashian has come under fire for donating only 10% of the profits which she rakes in from clothing auctions on auction website eBay to charity. RadarOnline have managed to get their hands on the tax documents from Kim’s November auction, for which she raised money for Life Change Community Church in California. The documents state that Kim donated $19,975 to charity, a pretty meagre sum in the grand scheme of things, considering the mum of one is worth an estimated $40 million.
Kim Kardashian has fired back at those who criticize her charitable giving
Kim has hit back at her critics, claiming, ‘I don’t publicize everything I do to help charities and people all over the world...So for people to attack me for giving 10% of my eBay auction sales to the people of the Philippines, that hurts. I do eBay auctions monthly and change the charity or church from time to time. I give 10% of all my earnings to charities, not just these eBay auctions.’
We're pleased that Victoria Beckham quit singing in favor for fashion design, but should these other celebrities have followed suit?
If they’re not bringing out fragrances, they’re designing complete fashion lines. You just can’t hold those stars down when it comes to sticking their fingers in all the pies, whether they have any discernible skill for fashion design or not. Some of these celebs found their true calling when they branched out in to the world of fashion, some of them we merely lament the day that anyone suggested they pick up a pencil.
Victoria Beckham is the queen of all fashionistas
Victoria Beckham is probably the biggest popstar-turned-designer success story. From her early days designing jeans for Rock & Republic through to her latest collections which have been hailed as her best yet, Victoria’s designs have matured and she is now not just a credible designer, but a leading name in high fashion.

Katy Perry has come under fire from feminists once again, but is it really her fault?
Female celebrities just can’t get it right these days. Not only are they meant to pursue their own careers as actresses, singers or whatever else their profession may be, now they’re expected to be political activists as well. Everything they do must be related back to how much of a ‘feminist’ they are: each action is assessed for its level of feminism; each quote dissected to discuss what could possibly be seen as damaging or encouraging to young female fans.
Poor old Katy Perry just can't get it right
Katy Perry is on the receiving end this week, firstly because in 2012 she refused to call herself a feminist and now because she does...but she doesn’t really know what it means. In 2012 Katy told Billboard magazine, “I am not a feminist, but I do believe in the strength of women.” Big mistake. The feminist blogosphere erupted, slamming Katy for being a bad role model. She learned her lesson though, when asked on Sunday whether she is a feminist, Katy’s response was, “A feminist? Uh, yeah, actually. I used to not really understand what that word meant, and now that I do, it just means that I love myself as a female and I also love men.” Um, well, wrong again.

Kate Winslet has named her new baby son Bear Blaze, but some of these other celebrity baby names are even more out of the ordinary.
Children of celebrities never have to go to normal schools where the other children will make fun of their wacky names, which means that the stars can go wild when naming their pampered offspring. There must be schools in Beverly Hills teaming with Donatello Zeuses and Princess Bananaramas.
You don’t come across many Janes or Johns in the celeb baby world, but funnily there seems to be a few Bears going around at the moment. Kate Winslet and Alicia Silverstone both have sons called Bear, although to set mini Winslet apart his middle name is Blaze, as a reminder of the house fire that his parents first met in. Romantic. As a side note, Winslet's husband changed his own name to Ned RocknRoll, so we're not surprised that the couple have chosen a name that is a little less out of the ordinary.

Prepare to by stricken by a girl crush: Beyoncé's funky younger sister features in the new Harper's Bazaar.
Solange Knowles has become the star of her own magazine spread after Harper's Bazaar featured the R&B singer in their latest issue. Constantly touted as the edgier Knowles sister, Solange is finally shaking off the intimidating shadow of Beyoncé's career and standing tall with her own look, personality and music career.
Solange Knowles Opens Up In An Insightful New Harper's Bazaar Interview.
The sisters have always cultivated very different styles, which is useful considering they look so physically similar. Rather than being the sister-of-someone-famous, Solange's left-field, daring fashion choices are now being celebrated by the fashion world and lusted over by hoards of fans keen to emulate the new "girl crush" on the scene.
Is it true that Beyonce is allegedly boycotting Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's "tacky" wedding?
There have been plenty of rumors in the past concerning how Beyonce feels about Kim Kardashian. Singer Beyonce, who is married to rapper Jay-Z, has been close friends with Kim’s future husband, Kanye West, for several years now (no one will ever forget him bursting on stage at the VMA awards in 2009 to claim Beyonce had “one of the best videos of all time”, despite Taylor Swift being half way through accepting the award for Best Video). Cue Beyonce and her very embarrassed face.
Beyonce allegedly won't attend Kim and Kanye's wedding
Although he thoroughly embarrassed her at the awards show, Beyonce allegedly still cares enough about him to have a personal investment in who he is in a relationship with, and how they conduct themselves. It’s claimed that pop royalty Beyonce feels that the Kardashian family are too controversial, although Kim has countered this by saying “It’s not true. She’s so sweet. I have no idea where these things come from. I think they like to make up these feuds. It’s more interesting.” The pair have even posted photographs of themselves together on Twitter, while Kim has often been spotted backstage at Beyonce’s shows.

Beyonce and Jennifer Garner are just a couple of the celebrities to join Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg to help with her new Ban Bossy campaign. But what exactly is it all about?
Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg, is spearheading a campaign which aims at encouraging little girls to embrace their natural leadership. The campaign urges people to ban “bossy” - a word often used to describe strong-willed and boisterous little girls. Sheryl claims that the word carries negative connotations and can disparage a young girl from asserting herself socially and, later in life, professionally.
Beyonce has lent her name and voice to the Ban Bossy campaign
Sheryl claims that when she herself was young, one of her junior high teachers told said to her friend, “Nobody likes a bossy girl. You should find a new friend who will be a better influence on you”. That may be one of the most unprofessional anecdotes we have ever heard! We hope that no teachers out there today are teaching such archaic values!

Kim Kardashian has claimed that her daughter North isn't spoiled, how do other celebrity children weigh up in comparison?
Celeb land is full of spoiled children and the one celebrity we weren’t expecting to dispute this was Kim Kardashian. We were knocked sideways when Kim claimed that her daughter, North, isn’t at all spoiled. Particularly since just two weeks ago the reality TV star and partner of rapper, Kanye West, was posting photos of designer baby clothes from Oscar de la Renta and Roberto Cavalli.
Kim claims that North mainly wears hand me downs and onesies
However, Kim has claimed that despite appearances, North doesn’t have a wardrobe that most 30 year old women would kill for, and that the eight month old often wears hand me downs from Kim’s sister, Kourtney’s daughter, Penelope. Kim explained that North “has actually not worn anything designer yet. Kids get dirty. She’ll spit up. She moves around so much. I saw this one cute dress that was $500 and I was like, “Absolutely not!””.
The coroner's investigation has revealed no foul play.
The autopsy of Ian Cuttler Sala, the art director, who died in a car crash Sunday, has revealed no suspicious factors. According to the LA coroner’s office, Cuttler died from multiple traumatic injuries after the car – a Ford GT driven by Sami Hayek (brother of Salma Hayek) -collided with a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck.
43-year-old Sala died on the scene, but Hayek and the 20-year-old truck driver escaped without any major injuries, according to the LA Times. LAPD Lt. Andrew Neiman reported that the investigation has found no evidence of drugs or alcohol being involved, putting the crash down as an accident. However, excessive speed may have played a part in Hayek losing control of the vehicle. The winding road in the area of the crash - a curvy stretch of Sunset Boulevard near Mapleton drive - may have contributed as well.
Beyonce, who worked with Sala on several projects, was among the first to acknowledge and mourn his death.
Haim's cover of Beyonce's 'XO' is yet another win to add to the string of successes that the sisters have had over the past couple of years.
There’s something about Haim that makes them stand out from their other contemporary rock bands. Maybe it’s got something to do with the feeling we can't shake that they belong to a different time and place. They wouldn’t have stuck out performing at Woodstock in ’69 and they’ve successfully managed to cement a spot for themselves as one of the most successful bands around, without ever distinctively conforming to a single genre.
The sisters narrowly missed out on the BRIT Award for Best International Group
Yesterday, Haim headed over to BBC Radio 1 where they recorded two tracks for a Live Lounge session (we live for Live Lounge sessions). One of the tracks that the band laid down was their new single ‘If I Could Change Your Mind’, which looks set to achieve similar success to their previous track 'The Wire'; but the recording that’s already gone viral is their cover of Beyonce’s ‘XO’.

Beyoncé appears as a cowgirl in teaser clips for her 'Drunk in Love' remix featuring Kanye West. The black and white video was posted on the 32-year-old singer's Instagram and Tumblr account.
Beyoncé released three teaser clips on her Instagram account on Saturday (15th February) which shows her dressed as a cow girl and wielding a lasso in the video for her 'Drunk in Love' remix featuring Kanye West.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian photographed in Paris during Fashion Week at the end of January.
It seems sex was most definitely on the brain when writing this song and making the video as the lyrics mention the sexual position the "reverse cowgirl" and, evidently in homage to this line, Beyonce appears in raunchy cowgirl mode wearing chaps, a white bra and knickers set, topped off with a jauntily angled Stetson.

The crowd hadn't expected Beyoncé to drop by for a little song.
Beyoncé and Jay Z have taken another step in proving that not only are they the most powerful people in music, they also put on the world's hottest show when they're together. The couple's appearance at New York club Pier 40 on Saturday night echoed the previous weekend's Grammy Awards where Beyoncé's solo performance became a duet when her husband Jay Z arrived.
Jay Z Repaid The Favour To Beyoncé When He Invited Her Onstage Last Saturday.
Guests at DirecTV's Pier 40 party were only expecting a performance from the rapper to celebrate the imminent Super Bowl game so when Beyoncé appeared in a dazzling black gown, they knew that things were about to get a whole lot more fabulous.

George Zimmerman, the security guard who claimed to have shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in self-defence and was subsequently tried last summer, has allegedly promised to participate in a celebrity boxing match.
What makes a celebrity a celebrity? It's an age old question which seems to become more abstract and contorted as time goes on.
George Zimmerman, apparently, is a celebrity. Or so his promised participation in a celebrity boxing match would suggest!
Zimmerman is, in case anyone has been avoiding the news for the past two years, the man who shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February 2012. Zimmerman claims he shot Martin in self-defence whilst working as a security guard in a gated Florida community. Although Zimmerman was acquitted during the trial, which continued throughout summer 2013, numerous protests were organised owing to the delayed arrest of Zimmerman and the accusations that he had racially profiled Martin. The court case was high profile and attracted numerous celebrity contributors and commentators, including Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

The smoke; the lights; the big drums; Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar's show was spectacular.
The aftermath of this year's Grammy Awards on Sunday was filled with talk about Beyoncé and Jay Z's sexually-charged 'Drunk In Love' performance, Madonna's mass marriage, Taylor Swift's surprised face and the rock-tastic finale show. However, as the dust has died down, one performance in particular stands out for its explosive mash-up and unique collaboration.
Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar performed a hybrid version of the former's hit 'Radioactive' and the latter's 'MAAD City' to considerable critical acclaim. Not only did the two songs mesh extremely well together but the rock band and the rapper brought a show to the Grammys that will be talked about for months to come.
The awards ceremony was itself a winner last night.
The 56th Grammy Awards has been rewarded for its monumental live performance line-up at last night's ceremony with the news that more people tuned in to catch the show than have done since 1993. The star-studded ceremony, which showcased talent including Daft Punk, Beyoncé and Jay Z, Nine Inch Nails, Sire Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, and Madonna, proved to be its most successful in 21 years with 28.5 million viewers.
Daft Punk Took Home Five Grammys & Performed At The 2014 Grammys
This year's viewing figure, provided by the Nielsen Company via the AP, mark an increase on last year's 28.4 million watchers of the telecast beamed straight from Los Angeles' Staples Center. The Grammys reached nearly 40 million people during Adele's big year two years ago and reportedly hasn't been below 25 million since 2009.
She's back and ready to show she can still hold her own in the fight to the top of the charts.
Sophie Ellis-Bextor is back in the charts, baring her teeth with her latest album Wanderlust as it fights for the throne in this week's UK number one. The 34 year-old diva is raring to steal the top perch from current charts hot-shot Ellie Goulding as well as race past current number two, Bruce Springsteen and his album High Hopes.
Sophie Ellis-Bextor Takes The Charts By Storm...Yet Again!
It won't be all plain sailing for Sophie, who famously denied Victoria Beckham a number one single in 2000 with her debut solo single 'Groovejet (If This Ain't Love), but with a further six more Top 10 singles and four Top 40 albums, she's pretty well-placed to do it all over again and blow the other acts out of the water.
The singer adds her voice to The Shriver Report.
Singer Beyoncé has added her voice to the growing debate about gender equality in wages by submitting an essay to the The Shriver Report, which has been examining the rates of financial insecurity amongst American women.
Beyoncé Adds Her Voice To The Shriver Report, Which Looks At The Financial Security Of Women.
"We need to stop buying into the myth about gender equality. It isn't a reality yet," the R&B star begins before detailing the lack of equality between male and female pay in the US and calling for change. "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," she writes.

At Jay-Z and Beyonce's daughter's 2nd birthday party on Tuesday (7 Jan.), the rapper wanted to get Blue something personal
Blue Ivy had a birthday that most of us could only dream of when she turned two-years-old earlier this month and on top of celebrating the her birthday in a completely rented-out zoo, she also got a special gift from Uncle Kanye West.
Kanye West really does have a soft side after all
The rapper and close friend of Blue's father Jay-Z wanted to give the infant something special and personal as a gift, so he composed an original lullaby for her. According to TMZ, Beyonce and Jay rented out Jungle Island, a wildlife park and botanical garden in Miami, with a handful of close friend and family in attendance for the special occasion. It was later reported by the Daily Star that Kanye decided tone down on the bass-heavy, manic beats found in his acclaimed 2013 album Yeezus for his latest track, as he wrote Blue Ivy a personal lullaby for her birthday. We can only imagine what kind of gift his own daughter, North West, will get when she celebrates her first birthday this summer.

Beyonce and Jay-Z celebrated their daughter's second birthday by hiring out a Miami zoo for the day.
Beyoncé and Jay Z celebrated their daughter's second birthday in style, by hiring a zoo! The couple closed down an entire theme park on Tuesday (7th January) so they could take Blue Ivy round unobserved by the public, according to TMZ. They also invited a group of select friends with who to share the experience.
Beyonce and Jay-Z celebrated Blue Ivy's birthday in style.
Jungle Island in Miami was the zoo in question, a park which holds a wide variety of exotic animals and exhibitions. Unfortunately, as Blue Ivy is two, is seems unlikely much of the expensive and exclusive experience will remain with her. We suspect the zoo may have been hired primarily for her parent's entertainment!

As the world scrambles to learn about the newest SNL castmember Sasheer Zamata, it looks like there is just one thing they should know: she is a huge fan of Beyonce's.
Saturday Night Live has hired its first African American female castmember since Maya Rudolph, and she already has plenty of fans. Sasheer Zamata was selected after the show held nationwide auditions, possibly as a response to criticism over their lack of diversity.
Beyonce attends a screening of her new visual album in NYC
Zamata is an accomplished actress and comedian, and it turns out, loves Beyonce — one of the character she will be playing on SNL. The actress recently appeared on an episode of How Was Your Week, a podcast with Julie Klausner, and all she could talk about was the singer. She admits that's all she ever talks about, pretty much.
After Jay Z proposed to Beyoncé on his birthday, she celebrated by taking him to a strip club. This would later inspire the music video for her song, 'Partition'.
After saying yes, Beyoncé celebrated Jay Z's proposal to her with a trip to a strip club. Despite being notoriously secretive in regards to her relationship with the '99 Problems' rapper - going as far as to not confirm their 2008 secret wedding - the 'XO' hitmaker has now revealed that Jay Z proposed to her on his birthday; 4th December, 2007. Their secret ceremony took place in New York City in April of the following year.
The new music video for 32-year-old Beyoncé's 'Partition' was inspired by their celebratory trip to the Crazy Horse cabaret club after his proposal. 'Liberation', the fourth YouTube video in a series about the music and videos of Beyoncé, the singer reveals: ''The day that I got engaged was my husband's birthday, and I took him to Crazy Horse and I remember thinking 'Damn, these girls are fly.' I just thought it was the ultimate sexy show. I was like, 'I wish I was up there, I wish I could perform that for my man.' So that's what I did for the video.''

Beyoncé sort-of apologized after receiving criticism for sampling audio from the Challenger disaster, and now NASA is responding.
Beyoncé fought major criticism this week after using a clip of audio recorded just after the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded in 1986, killing seven people on board.

On the song 'XO' from her latest album, Beyoncé samples news footage from the Challenger Space Disaster. Needless to say some people found it distasteful
Beyoncé released her fifth, self-titled album without warning at the beginning of December, resulting in a mad flurry of excitement from fans and media outlets alike as her release methods were heralded as groundbreaking and the actual content on the album marked as some of her best. With such little time to scrutinise and analyse the new release thoroughly, plenty of its content went under the radar, including some of the album's more unsavoury moments.
Beyoncé has been called her best album to date, but beneath all the sexual references and odes to motherhood there is a darker side to the album
The singer has been labelled "insensitive" by certain members (current and former) of NASA and their families for a sample she used on the track 'XO.' At the start of the song, which is about a struggling relationship, Bey uses a sample of now-retired NASA public affairs officer Steve Nesbitt's voice - the man who narrated the launch for television audiences at home.
Beyoncé issues an apology to the family members of the victims of NASA's Challenger disaster for using an audio clip following the fatal explosion: "My heart goes out to the families of those lost in the Challenger disaster."
Beyoncé garnered herself a lot of criticism when she used audio from the space shuttle Challenger disaster in her track 'XO'.
The family members of the victims, who were killed when the NASA space shuttle exploded shortly after take-off in 1986, were outraged when the song opens with a six-second audio sample that was immediately recorded after the disaster.
NASA public affairs officer Steve Nesbitt's voice features on the track saying, "Flight controllers here looking very carefully at the situation. Obviously a major malfunction," before the track begins.
Audio clips from the Challenger disaster played on Beyoncé's song has caused upset.
Beyoncé has been publically slammed by high profile former NASA employees who believe that the R&B singer overstepped the mark when she chose to use audio clips from the tragic 1986 Challenger disaster at the beginning of her new song, 'XO.'
Beyoncé Accidentally Caused Offence With Her New Song, 'XO.'
The six-second fuzzy radio audio, "Flight controllers here looking very carefully at the situation. Obviously a major malfunction," is grafted on to the beginning of the song, which laments a doomed relationship.
