New Video:Behind-The-Scenes Of Beyonce’s Super Bowl XLVII Rehearsal


It’s countdown time before Beyonce’s kickoff at Super Bowl XLVII this Sunday, Feb. 3.  My soul is ready for some wig-snatching, leotard-serving, booty-shaking, soon-the-drag-queens-will-be-imitating, gods-worthy amazingness that only an act like Beyonce can deliver. Stan? Not I. Just a lover of profound Beyonce dopeness.

In addition to all of the little treats Beyonce’s been dropping on her Instagram,


Beyonce took to one of her favorite pastimes, updating her Tumblr,  to feed the children some much needed sustenance before the big performance at Half Time. Her performance has been slated to bring the largest audience in Super Bowl history 

I’m going to need her to stop the madness. I can’t wait for her to bring it!!

What are you watching for? The love of the game or the love of the glam?

In Beyonce News: Rumored Vogue Cover & Behind-The-Scenes Of “Pulse NYC” Ad


Rumors are sparking after a leaked photo of King Bey in all of her glory hit the internet last night. According to the Rumor Mill, this is merely one shot from the supposed Beyonce and Annie Leibovitz collaboration for Vogue’s March 2013 cover. I can admit, I wasn’t going to report this story until I got confirmation, but the photo is so damn sick, how could I not?

In more BaddieBey reports, check out this behind the scenes video of Beyonce’s photoshoot for her “Pulse NYC” fragrance campaign.

Of the choice name of the new scent and shooting in New York, Beyonce says,

“I thought that now that I am a New Yorker and I’ve learned about how I can accomplish anything in this city, I felt it was an appropriate energy for the new fragrance.”

Balenciaga Biography, “The Master of Us All: Balenciaga, His Workrooms, His World” Set For Release

Cristóbal Balenciagabook

“He really liked to work on rather fat bodies.”

Such a bold statement to be made about the acclaimed fashion designer and couturier. Said statement will be emblazoned in my mind forever.

Mary Blume exposes the private and public life of Cristóbal Balenciaga in her biography,  “The Master of Us All: Balenciaga, His Workrooms, His World” (Farrar, Straus & Giroux).

Included in her accounts is his relationship with business associate and longtime lover, Wladzio Jaworowski d’Attainville; his choice to move to France , his protégé, Hubert de Givenchy; and his eye for design.

Definitely a worthwhile purchase. Find out what else is in store at WWD.

Random: I get tickled pink with myself at the frequency that I can confuse a Givenchy design with Balenciaga design. Even today, you can still see an inspiration in Givenchy’s designs.

New Video: Carrie Underwood, “Two Black Cadillacs”


I adore Carrie Underwood. Though she makes amazing love songs, her breakup songs are as prolific as Mary J. Blige circa 1990s.

I got Carrie-fever when she released “Before He Cheats” in 2006, but that doesn’t hold a candlestick to her newest song, “Two Black Cadillacs,” off of the album, “Blown Away.”

Underwood plays a woman that has been burned by her cheating man, but she is not the one that exacts revenge. The video is a little twisted, and slightly demented, but I like it a lot!!

Learn the inspiration for the visuals in this Behind The Scenes video.

Bon Qui Qui To Star In “T” By Alexander Wang Spring 2013 Campaign



Bon Qui Qui takes on Alexander Wang. Well, sorta. The designer has decided to take a fun, new approach to his Spring 2013 T by Alexander Wang campaign by developing a comedy sketch featuring Madtv’s, “Bon Qui Qui.” The role will be reprised by comedienne Anjelah Johnson.

Bon Qui Qui is about a couple of employees who terrorize the patrons of “King Burger” and Bon Qui Qui as their leader.

Cameos for the Wang comedy ads will include A$AP Rocky, Alessandra Ambrosio, Natasha Lyonne, Simon Doonan and Shannon Click.

Wang tells,

“I first watched Bon Qui Qui three years ago. The part when she complains about taking out the blender is a classic! It was fun to bring in some friends and people from the industry, and to see how they interacted with BQQ. The chemistry, or lack of, was the cherry on the cake.”

Be sure to check out the film debut set to air on the Alexander Wang website and YouTube channel Wednesday.

Check out a clip of Bon Qui Qui doing her thang below:
