*All hail Queen Bey!
Congrats are in order to Beyonce for being set to become the highest paid black musician of all time.
How she do it?
*Matthew Knowles’ family man image has taken yet another hit with his baby mama revealing details about the music mogul in her first television interview.
Speaking to “Inside Edition,” Alexsandra Wright confessed that Knowles has not spent any time with their four-year-old son, Nixon Alexander Knowles .
From the looks of it, Papa Knowles isn’t the only relative that hasn’t been formally introduced to the young boy. Beyoncé has yet to meet her little brother.
*After a fatal car crash took the life of Grammy-award winning art director Ian Cuttler Sala, Beyonce took to her official Facebook page to pay tribute to her former collaborator.
“Rest in Peace Ian Cuttler,” she wrote next to a photo of the late art director. “Ian was a Grammy Award winning art director and photographer who will be greatly missed. His memorable work includes album covers for ‘Destiny Fulfilled’ and ‘Dangerously in Love’.”
Sala, who was 43 at the time of his death, was a passenger in the Ford GT sports car driven by Sami Hayek — the brother of actress Salma Hayek — when it collided with a 2011 Toyota Tacoma truck on Sunset Boulevard on Sunday, Feb. 23.
*On the road again following a two-month break, Beyonce on Thursday launched the European leg of her Mrs. Carter World Tour in Glasgow, Scotland, with a completely new stage show, including setlists with new structures and a variety of new costumes.

*Weeks after Beyonce and Jay Z gave “Drunk In Love” its televised debut at the Grammy Awards, Queen Bey did the same for her “Beyonce” track “XO” at the BRIT Awards, held at London’s O2 Arena on Wednesday night (Feb. 19), reports Billboard. [Click through to watch.]
Bey started the song behind a see-through barrier, then strode out toward the London crowd. Three giant pillars behind her flashed graphics of fireworks and neon lights throughout the performance, but the most colorful moment came when the singer asked the room to help her sing the bridge.
Beyonce’s “XO” at the BRIT Awards was preceded by performances by Bruno Mars, Katy Perry and Arctic Monkeys. Beyonce was rumored to be among the event’s performers, and was confirmed to be taking the stage at the top of the telecast.
According to reports, the situation stems from a tweet Amber Rose posted on Saturday amid all the talk about the “Drunk in Love.”
