Ring the alarm! It looks like that rumored tracklist for Beyonce‘s reissue of her surprise self-titled 2013 album was a fake. Columbia Records has issued a press release with the official tracklist for the two-CD, two-DVD Beyonce Platinum Edition Box Set (out November 24), which, in a nutshell, contains two new songs — “7/11″ and “Ring Off” — plus four remixes of previously released songs with featured guests Nicki Minaj (“Flawless”), Jay Z and Kanye West (“Drunk In Love”), Pharrell Williams (“Blow”) and Mr. Vegas (“Standing On The Sun”).
One of the DVDs contains 10 live performances from Beyonce and Jay Z’s epic 2014 On The Run Tour (including their joint performance of “Drunk In Love”), while the remaining two discs are the original album and DVD music video compilation released last December.

Happy Monday, Idolator readers! We hope you all had an appropriately spook-tacular (groan) Halloween weekend, and hopefully, a far less spooky recovery the day after.
As always, our favorite pop stars were out in full force for Halloween, with costumes ranging from good, bad to downright ugly (in taste, anyway): From Rihanna‘s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles throwback to Katy Perry‘s spot-on Cheeto ensemble, to Justin Bieber‘s adorable buddy costume to Iggy Azalea‘s hater-baiting White Chicks look to Lily Allen‘s controversial, erm, “joke” of an outfit. They’re all here!

Beyonce has been rumored to be releasing a four-disc reissue of her 2013 self-titled album. Now, a photo of that release’s tracklist has surfaced online. If this is to be believed, then the reissue’s physical release, here titled BEYONCE – The Complete Edition, will feature ten new songs with accompanying visuals, plus a DVD of her and Jay Z‘s On The Run special. Featured artists would include Nicki Minaj, Justin Timberlake and Rihanna.
Complex points out that this document appears to be fake for few reasons. It says that the reissue’s release date, November 25, falls on Monday — it’s actually a Tuesday. Plus, a song called “Good In Goodbye” is already a lyric from 4‘s “Best Thing I Never Had.” What’s also worth noting, though, is that two of this reissue’s songs are registered on ASCAP: “DONK,” co-written by Pharrell and The-Dream; and “Cherry,” written by Timberlake, Timbaland and Jerome Harmon.

Well, this is too cute for words. Beyonce started her Halloween celebrations early by stepping out dressed as Janet Jackson circa Rhythm Nation 1814. The 33-year-old got Jan’s military-inspired pant suit just right but even she was upstaged by Blue Ivy, who rocked a Michael Jackson outfit. The adorable toddler had King of Pop’s socks, gloves and jacket down pat.
As for Jay Z? Well, it looks like he wasn’t in the mood for a costume this year. Perhaps, he will go to more effort tonight? It looks like we’ll be seeing more of Bey in the not too distant future. She was accidentally announced as a performer at the MTV EMAs on November 10. While we wait to be slayed by that appearance, check out more pics of the diva’s Halloween look after the jump. More »
It looks like MTV accidentally confirmed that Beyonce is performing at the EMAs! The broadcaster just uploaded a promo video to their YouTube account with the description: “Don’t miss Miley Cyrus, Beyonce, Iggy Azalea, Eminem and more performing Sunday, November 9th.” It could just be a mistake but the other three artists mentioned have already been announced, so maybe they let the cat out of the bag?
If Queen Bey does take the stage, it will be the diva’s first televised performance since that mesmerizing medley at the MTV VMAs in September. And if she does appear, it’s a pretty safe bet that she’ll perform the “***Flawless” remix with Nicki Minaj — after all, the femcee is hosting the event. See the cute promo video and a screengrab of the description after the jump. More »

Jessica Mauboy is currently heating up the charts in Australia with new Babyface-penned/produced single “Can I Get A Moment?”. The latest cut from the pop diva’s third LP Beautiful, which is being rereleased on November 21, debuted at number five on the ARIA singles chart after a promo blitz that included a sizzling performance on the finale of X Factor.
The 25-year-old is hoping to build on that momentum by dropping the cute (but familiar) video. “Can I Get A Moment?” obviously draws inspiration from Beyonce‘s “Love On Top” visual, which was a cute reworking of New Edition‘s “If It Isn’t Love” clip. It’s hardly surprising given Jessica’s love for all things Queen Bey and the format fits the song perfectly. Watch up top. More »
Beyonce is notorious for being extremely private about her personal life, and even though she’s been recently letting her fans into her world via Instagram posts, the singer is still tight-lipped about certain topics. Well, that will all be changing soon!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a biography about King Bey is in the works. The as-yet-titled book, written by J. Randy Taraborrelli, plans to explore her entire life — from her childhood performances, her time withe Destiny’s Child and her relationship with Jay Z. In a statement, the author said “Beyoncé has lived a most incredible, inspiring life. I know my readers will enjoy her journey.” More »
“Getting money, divas gettin’ money.” That iconic song lyric has turned into Beyonce‘s personal life mantra. When she’s not making bank with record-breaking ticket sales and song royalties, Queen Bey is looking for other ways to diversify her brand. Like inking a massive deal with British retailer Topshop to collaborate on a range of activewear.
Granted, tracksuits and sneakers aren’t the first thing that come to mind when you think of the “Drunk In Love” diva, but there’s method to this madness. “Creating a partnership with Beyonce, one of the most hard-working and talented people in the world, who spends many hours of her life dancing, rehearsing and training is a unique opportunity to develop this category [of clothing],” says Topshop big-wig Philip Green.
And the 33-year-old is just as enthusiastic about the upcoming collaboration. “I have always loved Topshop for its fashion credentials and forward thinking,” Bey explained. “Working with its development team to create and produce a technical and fashion-led collection is exciting, and I’m looking forward to participating in all aspects of this partnership.” More »
It’s time for our quarterly round-up of raunchy pop diva pics! And, as usual, the leading ladies of music did not disappoint. In further proof that 2014 is the year of the nude, it was almost an embarrassment of the riches with everyone from 19-year-old newcomer Niykee Heaton to 56-year-old pop legend Madonna losing their clothes in the name of self expression/free publicity.
The usual candidates are all represented. Outtakes from Rihanna‘s iconic Lui magazine shoot surfaced online and got everyone clicking, while Miley Cyrus‘ Instagram account remains a valid alternative to PornHub. Honorable mentions go to Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea for proving that rap divas do it better. Peruse the (semi-NSFW) gallery up top. More »
