Knowles wrote that while dancing she heard a group of women yelling “Sit down now, you need to sit down right now”, aggressively at her from the box behind. “You want to be considerate, however, they were not at all considerate with their tone, their choice of words, or the fact that you just walked in and seem to be enjoying yourself,” Knowles wrote.

Have You Found It? Solange Loses Wedding Ring In Mardi Gras Parade


Solange Knowles

Losing something as precious and sentimental as a wedding ring has got to be one of the worst feelings ever, but Beyonce's little sis Solange Knowles is putting on a brave face on as she listens out for news of her own missing ring, for which she has offered a reward if found.

SolangeNo sign of Solange's missing wedding ring...

She was taking part in a Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans, as an honorary Muse in the all-female collective the Krewe of Muses. Bedecked in green and blue and wearing a crown of the same colours, the singer must've got a little too energetic during the celebrations because her precious wedding ring slipped off her finger into oblivion while sailing down St. Charles Avenue on Thursday (February 5th 2016).

The couple eased into the wedding weekend, heading down to the Indywood Cinema to catch Mahogany starring Diana Ross. Bey was reportedly spotted heading into the theatre on her own.

Beyonce Divorce? Tabloid Rumors Suggest Singer Cheated With Bodyguard


Beyonce Knowles Jay Z Solange Knowles

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.

Jay Z Set Upon By Solange Knowles: What Caused Beyonce's Sister's Outburst?


Solange Knowles Jay Z Beyonce Knowles

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.

Jay Z Beyonce
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.

Matthew Knowles Re-Marries, Without Beyonce And Solange In Attendance


Beyonce Knowles Solange Knowles

Matthew Knowles, the father and former manager of Beyonce and Solange Knowles, got married last Sunday, unfortunately without either of his daughters in attendance. TMZ reports that Knowles excused Solange and Beyonce’s absence with their packed schedules, saying: , "Unfortunately, Beyonce and Solange had previous engagements which made it impossible for them to attend."

Beyonce, Chime for Change
Bey is a busy, busy woman these days.

Matthew married Gena Avery in a private ceremony in Houston, Texas, after being engaged to her for a year and a half. This is his second marriage, the first one being to Tina Knowles, aka Beyonce and Solange’s mother. The marriage ended in 2011 – the same year that Beyonce ended her professional relationship with Matthew. Knowles had been managing his daughter’s career since the Destiny’s Child days. However, back then he maintained that there were no hard feelings between the two of them. Beyonce confirmed this to Us Weekly, saying: "I've only parted ways with my father on a business level," Beyonce said. "He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me. I grew up watching both he and my mother [Tina Knowles] manage and own their own businesses. They were hard-working entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps."

As the annual South by Southwest festival heats up over there in Austin, Texas, we’ve cast a jealous eye over the line-up and picked out five of some of the bigger names that you really should start queuing nice and early for and thrown in five hype bands for you, too, so you can get all hip with your friends, upon your return and start laying down all those “saw them first lines,” when they blow up next year.

First up, the acts that have already broken, that you really need to check out, or at least pretend that you did, if you were stuck in that queue for BBQ wings…

1. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – their ‘Thrift Shop’ song really blew up, especially online, where they challenged Carly Rae Jepsen’s chart record for ‘Call Me Maybe.’ No one can predict whether or not Macklemore’s going to be a one hit wonder or whether he’s got more up his sleeve, he’s known for putting on a good show, and all six of their shows are likely to be rammed.

‘Losing You’: Can Solange Knowles Eclipse Beyoncé With Her Return To Music?


Solange Knowles Beyonce Knowles Grizzly Bear Of Montreal

Solange Knowles has returned to the pop scene. She might be better known as the younger sister of Beyonce Knowles but with ‘Losing You,’ Solange could finally prove that she’s a talented artist in her own right, with no need to live in her sister’s shadow. It’s been four years since Solange released her second album Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams, which may have been well-received but failed to get her a foothold on her career ladder in the music industry.

‘Losing You’ is produced by Blood Orange’s Devonté Hynes, according to LA Times and it’s a neat laid-back modern R&B song, with just enough swagger to get her personality across, but just enough retro groove to set it apart from most mainstream R&B tracks. It’s simultaneously downbeat and uplifting and the video really captures her spirit as she cycles around Cape Town, South Africa. The video was directed by Melina Matsoukas; she’s worked with Solange before, on 2008’s ‘I Decided.’

The track, which features the lyrics “I’m not the one that you should be making your enemy, tell me the truth, boy, am I losing you for good,” will be released by Terrible Records, which is run by Chris Taylor of the band Grizzly Bear. The B-side will be ‘Sleep in the Park,’ which will feature Kevin Barnes, of the band Of Montreal. Both tracks are taken from her as-yet-untitled album, which is expected to be released some time in 2013.
