Queen B does it again. I’m fairly certain when I am reborn I will be the modern day version of Beyoncé, or I’m actually comfortable saying that I’d quite enjoy coming back as old lady Bee. We all know she’ll be just as fierce, and I’m certain that Blue Ivy will be pampering her mother prepping to take over Jay and B’s throne.
Beyoncé truly is quite the inspiration – sticking around through the years and staying relevant. Having Jay-Z on her side makes the pair possibly the most dreamy twosome ever. Miss Bee is the first of GFB’s newest weekly feature, Girls, where I will spotlight the girls of our time.
The Royal Wedding has finally come and gone. No, I did not wake up at 4 am. I originally had every intention of doing so, but figured the internet, social networking sites and television broadcasts would keep me up to date at a reasonable hour. Of course these sources did not fail. It’s a weird thing to imagine having your entire wedding broadcasted and scrutinized online moment by moment. So let’s get to it then…
THE DRESS: Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.
This McQueen, fit for a future Queen, is such a classic dress, which I think completely suits Kate’s style. Although she has already been deemed a style icon, working for a High Street fashion designer, I think her style is much more simple and classic, and less edgy and trendy. This dress fits her style perfectly. I only wish it was a little more modern, less sleeve and less ballgown, but I’m more of a fit-n-flare (Say Yes To The Dress anyone?) kind of girl. Overall I think it’s perfectly paired for the traditional Royal Wedding agenda.
Another note, would be a bigger more vibrant bouquet. I found it looking a bit wilted and more so camouflaged with the dress. But then again the styling of the wedding was rather non-existent.

I’m sure the reception is bound to be much more exciting. Ellie Goulding will be performing, as requested by Prince William, as she is the Royal couples favourite artist. I also heard that Jay-Z & Beyonce were asked to perform “Bonnie & Clyde.” Can you imagine Wills, Charles and Queen Elizabeth throwing their diamonds up!? Just outrageous (in my dreams this would happen), hears hoping.
A rough cut of a new Dr. Dre track was leaked back in April and fooled many into believing it was the final version. In June, “Under Pressure”, featuring Jay-Z, is making the rounds through the blogs once again as Dr. Dre himself has come out and said it was only a rough cut. While it’s certainly catchy, what is obviously missing is an identifiable hook, which, as we learned in MUS 505 – Popular Culture and Music, is the money maker. His album “Detox” is scheduled for release this fall, but it just wouldn’t be hip hop without leaks and delays, so don’t hold your breath. If one thing’s for sure, “Under Pressure” is no “Forgot about Dre”.
This version may be sped up a bit but it was really hard to find a working clip on Youtube. Enjoy!
