Tickets went quickly for Beyoncé Mass - Atlanta Journal Constitution

Posted: 01 Mar 2020 12:00 AM PST

If you wanted to attend the Beyoncé Mass at Spelman College on Monday, you may need more than a prayer.

Demand for the service was so high, that tickets were reserved quickly, according to a Spelman College spokeswoman.

There are plenty of people, though, who still hope they can get inside Sisters Chapel on the HBCU's campus. And perhaps they can.

An email to ticketholders were recently sent through Eventbrite asking them to release their tickets if they cannot attend the service, which will be held at 7 p.m. Monday at Sisters Chapel.

"There is a substantial waitlist, and we would like to accommodate as many people as possible," the message read.

It asks that mass goers arrive by 6:55 p.m. or else they may not be guaranteed a seat.

The liturgy of Beyoncé Mass includes music from the artist's vast discography, readings from womanist scholars and prominent black female leaders, and a sermon from the Rev. Yolanda M. Norton, the H. Eugene Farlough Chair of Black Church Studies and assistant professor of Hebrew Bible at San Francisco Theological Seminary.

Norton curated and created the service. 

 In California, Norton taught a class, "Beyoncé and the Hebrew Bible," which focused on how black women encountered Scripture and how they see themselves in sacred texts.

Kylie Jenner Gets Accused Of Attempting To Morph Into Beyoncé For Her Latest Photo Shoot - BET

Posted: 06 Mar 2020 12:00 AM PST

They say imitation is the best form of flattery but Kylie Jenner may have taken it to another level. 

Yesterday (Mar. 3), Kylie posted pictures of herself in a neon green leopard dress and fans think it looks just like an outfit Beyoncé wore in 2013. Her face and makeup looks creepily similar to the legend's, too. 

The Kardashian sisters have been accused time and time again for trying to look like Queen Bey, but the lime green dress, hair and make-up all look too similar. 

Take a look at the reciepts below!

See why the internet believes that Kylie morphed into Bey for this shoot!

Big Sky Tournament: Sisters Lizzy Klinker, Natalie Klinker lift Idaho women to quarterfinal win over Portland State - Sports and Weather Right Now

Posted: 10 Mar 2020 08:59 PM PDT

BOISE – Much like last year's Big Sky Conference Tournament semifinal loss to Portland State, Idaho was ice-cold from 3-point range.

The rematch, which pitted No. 2 seed Idaho and No. 7 seed Portland State in a Big Sky quarterfinal at CenturyLink Arena, saw the Vandals shoot 1 for 17 from beyond the arc, similar to 2019 (6 for 29) when the Vikings shocked top-seeded Idaho.

This time, Idaho countered inside with sisters Natalie and Lizzy Klinker and Beyonce Bea, downing Portland State 56-54 and advancing to Wednesday's semifinal against third-seeded Idaho State, which defeated Southern Utah 70-63 in Tuesday's late quarterfinal.

Natalie Klinker, who had 15 points and 12 rebounds, stood out in the fourth quarter.

Klinker secured an offensive rebound at the 2:18 mark and proceeded to complete a three-point play, giving Idaho a 51-50 lead it didn't relinquish.

Portland State (16-16), which won last year's Big Sky Tournament as a No. 4 seed, was efficient from 3-point range (5 for 8) for the second straight night, but Idaho didn't surrender many open looks.

"We took away some things they wanted to do," Idaho coach Jon Newlee said. "We were confident coming in."

Lizzy Klinker had 19 points, and Bea totaled 16 points and eight rebounds.

Gina Marxen, Idaho's first-team All-Big Sky guard, was 0 for 7 from 3-point range, but made it a point to get the ball inside down the stretch, totaling nine assists.

Idaho also totaled 16 offensive rebounds to Portland State's three.

Tatiana Struen (18 points) led Portland State. Kylie Jimenez, who had 22 points and nine points in last year's upset of Idaho, was held to four points.

Call Girls: Lady Gaga and Beyoncé's “Telephone” Video Turns 10 - NewNowNext

Posted: 13 Mar 2020 11:14 AM PDT

Can We Talk About…? is a weekly series that can't stop touching its gay face.

I know you're probably jowls-deep in coronavirus coverage, so allow me to discuss something of arguably greater social and political import: a classic bop.

On the Ides of March, 2010, Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta dropped one of her most ambitious videos to date, a collaboration with the reigning queen of pop and life itself, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles Carter.

Gaga originally wrote "Telephone"—the second single off her 2009 EP, The Fame Monster—for Circus-era Britney Spears, which explains a lot. The "eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh! Stop telephoning may-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay!" does seem tailor-made for Brit. That girl never did like a hard E.
 

Alas, Britney ultimately rejected "Telephone," so Gaga kept the song for herself, apparently planning at one point to record it as a duet with Spears, though that didn't pan out either. In the meantime, Beyoncé recruited a then red-hot Gaga for the remix of her song "Video Phone," and so began the diva "phone" series. [Sidenote: Still waiting for the third installment.]

On the strength of a collaboration between two of music's biggest names, "Telephone" charted in December 2009 before being officially released on January 26, 2010. Two days later, Gaga and Bey filmed the video, directed by the great Jonas Åkerlund.

Clocking in at just under 10 minutes, with references to Russ Meyer, John Waters, and Quentin Tarantino, "Telephone" was a sequel to Gaga's 2009 video "Paparazzi," also directed by Åkerlund. After she kills her boyfriend, portrayed by Alexander Skarsgård, we find the Lady serving time and lewks in a women's correctional facility.

Within the first few minutes, we're treated to some of the Haus of Gaga's most inspired fashions, including the smoking cigarette glasses:

The Diet Coke can hair rollers:

And the caution tape… whatever this is:

There's also some jarringly blatant product placement for Virgin Mobile and the dating site Plenty of Fish, which lends a knowing cheapness to the video that kinda works in its favor.

Anygay, we're halfway through before Beyoncé shows up in a bold black lip as Gaga's accomplice—and, dare I say, lover—Honey Bee.

Bey is serving you full-on soft-butch-dyke realness, and to this day, save perhaps her brilliant and underappreciated clip for "Why Don't You Love Me?," Queen Bey has never been this campy, this fun, and this irreverent.

Lest we forget, just two years later she would drop her self-titled fifth studio album on an unsuspecting world, beginning her evolution into a "serious" artist and an avatar for blackness, womanhood, and bad bitchery around the world. This was the last gasp of Beyoncé as pop star before she ascended to something greater.

Perhaps channeling her B.B. Homemaker persona from "Why Don't You Love Me?," Bey again dons a Betty Paige wig for "Telephone," but this time around she's not weeping into her camisole about being forsaken. No, this was a Beyoncé we had never seen before. A gleefully foul-mouthed, man-killing Beyoncé.

This was years before Lemonade had her dropping F-bombs and leaving Jay-Z's career for dead. This was back when Beyoncé was still doing interviews, and moreover, still doing duets. Can you imagine Bey hopping on a track with Gaga now? I know you can because I do, too. It's all I think about. They are so good together. Gaga brings out a less-guarded, more lighthearted Bey, and Bey elevates Gaga's game by her mere presence.

By the time they've successfully poisoned Tyrese—and a number of presumably innocent people—it's time for the big dance number! Because we can't have two pop divas in one video without some tight choreo.

"Telephone" ends in one of my truly favorite music video moments of the past 10 years—insofar as music videos have become less of an event and less relevant to my life. Gaga and Bey run off looking like the Gabor sisters escaping Grey Gardens: two merry murderesses in matching matronly gowns with extravagant hats and accompanying veils, stopping to pose and vogue on the side of the road as the sound of cop sirens blare in the background.

Ma'ams, you just killed an entire diner of people, but please continue to serve all of this fabulous couture.

We just don't have this much fun in music videos anymore. Or in music in general.

Ten years later, "Telephone" is still a pure joy to watch, especially considering how far both women have come since then. Back in 2010, Gaga was still a pop phenom on the rise, while Beyoncé was a pop superstar reevaluating her place in the zeitgeist and her value as an artist.

Here, they joined forces at two wildly different points in their careers to have a blast, give the gays everything we wanted, and show the world that two divas can indeed get along and create magic.

Shortly after the video's release, however, Lady Gaga, distanced herself from it.

"I hate it so much," Gaga said in 2011. "Beyoncé and I are great together. But there are so many fucking ideas in that video. All I see in that video is my brain throbbing with ideas—and I wish I had edited myself a little bit more."

But that's actually why it's such a great video, and why we initially fell in love with Lady Gaga. Like "Bad Romance," "Telephone" is ambitious, bombastic, and off-kilter. All those ideas definitely result in overkill, but it's also a lot more impressive than not reaching far enough.
