Beyonce's Lemonade is now on iTunes

Don't have Tidal? No problem!
Beyonce's latest album Lemonade is now on iTunes.

Did you watch on Saturday?
I did of course, and on Sunday.
Having a full day on Saturday I really didn't enjoy the special presentation. I found it boring, but LOVED the 6 inch featuring the Weeknd, Sorry and Freedom. 

When I watched it a second time with more rest and more time, I fell in love with the album.
I loved the concept, the depth of the lyrics and how Beyonce has grown as an artist.
Prior to the 4 album I was a mediocre Bey fan. Her lyrcis were the same line over and over again and the songs were played out on the radio.
When 4 came out I heard more lyrical diversity, catchier songs and a more bad ass attitude.
Then when her self-titled album dropped in 2013....I became a STAN!

Now with Lemonade, even though it took me 2 tries, I understand the concept, I get it...she's a grown woman doing her own thing.

Do I think Jay cheated on her? I mean, this album alludes to it. Then there was elevator-gate back in 2014. Then there are the rumors over whether or not Becky is Rachel Roy. Roy is Dame Dash's ex-wife, Dame was once Jay's Roc-a-Fella partner back in the day.
At the end of the day, it's Jay and Bey and we'll never know the real story unless they tell us.

Now excuse me while I get back into formation and learn these lyrics prior to her show in May.

Blac Chyna and Kylie Jenner Reconcile

Kylie Jenner's snapchat

So, it looks like the beef has been squashed on the Blac Chyna- Kardashian-Jenner front.
Kylie took to Snap and posted a photo with Blac Chyna (in the same bathroom she took selfies with Kim a while back) with the caption, "When we've been best friends the whole time".
I was taken aback...if that was true, I was trolled by this family once again.
However, big brother Rob posted this photo on Instagram:

Well, congrats to the family for settling this drama. They ALWAYS do this to me!

Legendary Musician Prince Dies

Wow.
I don't even know how to even....
Legendary pop-star Prince was found dead at his home in Minneapolis. His publicist tells the Associated Press he was " found dead at his home Thursday in Chanhassen."

"The singer, songwriter, arranger and instrumentalist was widely acclaimed as one of the most inventive musicians of his era, drawing upon influences ranging from James Brown to the Beatles to Jimi Hendrix. His hits included "Little Red Corvette," "Let's Go Crazy" and "When Doves Cry."

 The Minneapolis native broke through in the late 1970s with the hits "Wanna Be Your Lover" and soared over the following decade with such albums as "1999" and "Purple Rain."

   The title song from "1999" includes one of the most widely quoted refrains of popular culture: "Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999."

Just last week Prince was rushed to the hospital after his plane made an emergency landing in Illinois on Friday morning. TMZ later reported, "A rep for Prince tells TMZ, the singer has been fighting the flu for several weeks. He canceled 2 shows on April 7th but wanted to make Thursday night's performance in Atlanta, even though he was still not feeling well.
After the show, he got on a plane and felt considerably worse, so his plane made an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois, where he was taken to the hospital and treated. He was released 3 hours later, got back on the plane and is now back home.
Earlier this year, Prince's protegee Vanity had passed away.
Wow....R.I.P. to the Legend.
