Nothing can stop Queen Bey.
Beyonce didn't let a bleeding ear stop her performing during the Tidal X 1015 concert at New York's Barclays Center on Saturday night.
During the performance of track ‘Haunting’ Bey’s ear began bleeding, much to the horror of fans watching the livestream. But like a true pro the signer just kept on going.

The flame-haired singer songwriter's long-time collaborator, Janee Benett, has admitted she has already begun work on Jess' forthcoming LP with Gad, who collaborated with the 'Lemonade' hitmaker on her 2008 hit 'If I were a Boy'.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Benett said: ''We've started [Jess'] new album now. We've been working with some amazing producers and writers, including Toby Gad - who's done loads with Beyoncé - Skrillex and PARTYNEXTDOOR. I've been doing quite a few things with Jess for the second album.''

Solange’s third album ‘A Seat at the Table’ has been compared to Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’.
Both albums are politically charged and touch on issues of race and culture, but Solange says critics shouldn't be surprised at the similar themes, as both artists grew up in the same household.

He featured on track three 'Don't Hurt Yourself'.
Jack White has finally opened up about his rather unexpected collaboration with Beyonce on her hit 'Lemonade' album. The former White Stripes frontman was listed as a producer, writer and guest vocalist on her song 'Don't Hurt Yourself', and he's only now spoken up about it.
Jack White featured on 'Don't Hurt Yourself'
Currently promoting his acoustic compilation album 'Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016', White spoke to NPR's radio show 'All Things Considered' about how Beyonce approached him to work with her on her scandalous surprise album 'Lemonade'.
Beyonce paid tribute to the late R&B star, who was one of her biggest influences, by posting a clip of an brief interview she did with Aaliyah back in 2000.
On the 15th anniversary of the tragic death of R&B star Aaliyah, a tribute has been paid to her by an auspicious modern star in the shape of Beyonce, who posted a distinctly fangirl-y interview snippet she did with the late star back in 2000.
Beyonce, one of the world’s biggest stars and who has just slayed the public and critics alike with her recent Lemonade album, was just 18 and still in Destiny’s Child when she got the opportunity to do a very brief red carpet interview with Aaliyah at the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards.
Jay Z snapped a photo of Beyonce as she posed in an elevator in Paris this week - but the image caught a reflection of him holding the camera as he did so.
A fairly innocuous photo of Beyonce taken by her husband Jay Z on tour this week has accidentally gone viral, with corners of the internet finding an image of Bey in an elevator hysterically funny because it shows Jigga as an ‘Instagram husband’.
The photograph was posted on Bey’s official website earlier this week, showing the pop star in a mirrored elevator in the French capital city of Paris while on her 'Formation' tour. However, a reflection of the rapper can be seen the background taking the photo on a phone, which he may not have realised.

Beyonce's gig on Sunday and Rihanna's concert last weekend both suffered from a large number of empty seats, despite being officially sold out.
British pop fans are up in arms at the sight of two massive Wembley gigs in the space of a fortnight, from Beyonce and Rihanna, being half-empty despite ticketing outlets having officially sold out months ago – with ticket touts getting the blame.
Beyonce fans attending the second of her two gigs at London’s Wembley Stadium on Sunday night (July 3rd) posted pictures via social media of the scores of empty seats and spaces around the venue, despite the singer herself referencing the ‘official’ fact that the gig was sold out while she was on-stage.
While the official reason can’t be known, it seems unlikely that so many thousands simply forgot to show up, and ticket touts appear to be the main reason for the situation.
Who posed competition for Bey on the red carpet?
It was the fashion Oscars last night (June 6th 2016) at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York; the CFDA Fashion Awards presented a host of the most glamorous women in showbusiness as it announced the designers and icons who have bagged prizes this year.
Jennifer Hudson gave some Red Queen glamour
Of course, it was Beyonce who landed the coveted Fashion Icon Award by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and indeed she showed off her talents in the wardrobe department by eschewing the traditional red carpet gown in favour of a striped pant-suit and an enormous brimmed hat (kind of like a cross between Beetlejuice and Winona Ryder in the same film). Bey-utiful. It's just as well she opted for something a little different given that her contemporaries were especially difficult to beat; Jennifer Hudson showed off her enviable curves in a black and red Prabal Gurung piece that was more reminiscent of the Red Queen.
The conservative pundit described Jay Z as a ‘drug dealer’ earlier this year during a rant about Beyonce’s Superbowl performance.
Jay Z has hit back at conservative pundit Tomi Lahren on his new track with Pusha T titled ‘Drug Dealers Anonymous’. The song was released last night on Jay’s streaming service Tidal and samples Lahren’s viral rant from earlier this year, in which she labelled Jay a drug dealer and criticised wife Beyonce’s Superbowl performance.
Jay Z has dropped new track ‘Drug Dealers Anonymous’.
Before Jay’s verse Lahren is heard saying: "Your husband was a drug dealer. For fourteen years, he sold crack cocaine.” The sample comes from an online video Lahren made for The Blaze in February in which she criticised Beyonce’s Superbowl performance and in particular the use of Black Panther style imagery.
Futuristic fashion flooded the floor at this year's Costume Gala.
This year's Met Gala hosted probably one of the best themes its ever seen, with celebrities entering in their droves decked head to toe in futuristic fashion; metallics, latex and dark lipstick galore. Some of the best dressed included Beyonce, Taylor Swift and Blake Lively.

The 2016 Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art featured an interesting fashion theme: 'Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology'. It was a chance to really get to grips with one's inner sci-fi fox, though many stars were disappointingly minimal with their costume execution.

Beyoncé is said to be writing and directing a film based on Saartjie Baartman, who was forced to star in London ‘freak shows’ during the 1800s.
Beyoncé’s rumoured new film project has drawn criticism from a South African chief, who said the singer ‘lacks the basic human dignity’ to be worthy of the role. Beyoncé is said to be writing and directing a film based on Saartjie (Sarah) Baartman, a South African woman who was taken as a slave to Europe in 1810 and later forced to work in London ‘freak shows’, due to her extraordinarily large buttocks.

Perry's Prismatic world tour constituted the bulk of her earnings, which were just under $88 million in the 12-month period measured.
