Instead of ramping up the BPM, Monsieur Adi completely reworks “Pretty Hurts” into an orchestral ballad that not only showcases Beyonce’s heavenly vocals but also allows the Sia-penned ballad’s inspirational message to remain intact. It’s tasteful, moving and incredibly well-executed. Grab a lighter (or something else to wave in the air) and listen after the jump. More »
Queen Bey kicks off the playlist with a little Prince (“Breakfast Can Wait”) before transitioning into Iggy Azalea‘s “Fancy”, the first of two songs from the Aussie rap diva. There are a couple of surprises in there — Boy George‘s “Live My Life” and Robyn‘s “Dancing On My Own” — but the majority of the songs are from hip-hop/R&B heavyweights like Ice Cube, 2Pac and Kendrick Lamar. Oh and Lana Del Rey‘s “West Coast” gets some well-deserved love as does Solange‘s excellent “Lovers In The Parking Lot”. Watch Bey’s tasteful tribute after the jump. More »
Although the video shoot was supposed to be a surprise — one might even say it was Unexpected — fans and paparazzi alike were quick to track down the trio during the shoot last month. After all, when you’ve got the ladies of DC3 all together in one room, it’s all but impossible not to get the entire world shaking and crying.

The cover story focuses on the game-changing diva’s many accomplishments. She wasn’t interviewed for the piece but it’s always nice when someone collects, sorts and arranges your fave’s receipts. (Bookmark it for future stan wars). As for the shoot, Beyonce just looks like Beyonce. Which is as close to perfect as humanly possible — even with that bogus weave. See more pics after the jump.

There’s no reason why this remix couldn’t be sent to radio as a summer-friendly alternative to the original. That ploy worked wonders for Lana Del Rey‘s “Summertime Sadness” (the Cedric Gervais reboot helped the song go top 10) and was also an essential part of John Legend‘s “All Of Me” campaign. Listen to the fast and furious, yet still oddly moving overhaul of Bey’s inspirational ballad after the jump. More »
But before you exit this article and start googling “Beyonce’s boobs”, it’s not a topless pic. The “Pretty Hurts” diva is just wearing a sheer top without a bra. No big deal, right?

See the actually fairly safe for work pic after the jump (you can see more on any fashion website) and some of the less crude/frightening tweets after the jump. More »
