Beyonce Drops Video for ‘Best Thing I Never Had’

Beyonce just released the new music video to her hit song, “Best Thing I Never Had,” and prepare yourselves to see her rocking a little lingerie number throughout the first half. She wears an absolutely gorgeous white gown with gold embroidery on the bodice afterwards, which is meant to be a sexy wedding dress.

The song reminds us of Beyonce’s other man-bashing track, “Irreplaceable.” Although, with a range as strong and powerful as hers, we don’t mind hearing this similar message a few times over as long as we can continue to hear her talented voice come alive in her music.

We love the “This is what you could have had” attitude that she carries throughout this video. Is it as empowering as you hoped it would be?

Beyonce Pulse, New Fragrance

Beyonce will launch her third fragrance for women, in cooperation with the Coty, Called Pulse in September. Pulse is a floral-citrus-gourmand. The fragrance dedicated to the favorite flower of the singer – orchid.

“Women always tell me that my music makes them feel strong and confident, and Pulse is about finding that inner power. Pulse represents the woman I am on stage. When I think about excitement, it makes me think about my heart racing and a pulsating beat—it’s my stage persona,” said Beyonce to Elle.

Pulse includes top notes of pear blossom, frozen bergamot and Blue Curacao liqueur. The heart features Bluebird orchid for the first time used in a fragrance, delicate peony and midnight blooming jasmine. The base is made with Madagascar vanilla, musk and precious woods.

Heart notes: bluebird orchid, peony, midnight blooming jasmine
Base notes: vanilla, musk, woody notes

The Pulse’s flacon look like it’s upside down, while its blue colors evoke the fragrance inside.

Beyonce Surprises Young Fans In Harlem

We’re not just riding on the Beyonce train, we’re the mother-effing conductor. We love Bey something (Sasha) fierce, for both her tunes and the way she connects with her fans, especially the little ones. Who can forget the time she surprised the kids at a school in Harlem in the middle of their Move Your Body workout? We melt just thinking of it.

Yesterday she was back in Harlem, this time at the local Target where kids from the Boys & Girls Club of Harlem were performing to songs off her new album. She walked out onstage and, well, it was a cute overload. As one young fan on the scene told the Washington Post, “She makes me dance, and she makes me feel like having a playdate with her.” We know what you mean, kid.
