Filed under: Music MinuteBeyonce

beyonce essence festival

Is there anyone more on top of the world than Beyoncé??

You’d be hard up to try and find someone who could beat out Beyoncé’s last couple months that included singing the National Anthem at President Barack Obama’s inauguration and ruling the Super Bowl halftime show.

And now, Queen Bey isn’t slowing down as she’s all set to headline one night at the ESSENCE Festival.

Beyoncé will be back at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans over the July 4th holiday to do her bootylicious best once again.

Time to buy a plane ticket!!

The festival couldn’t be more excited to have snagged the superstar for what will be an AH-Mazing performance as Essence Communications President Michelle Ebanks commented:

Shiny!

Jada Pinkett Smith scored Essence's September cover, and she is topping the fashion charts.

The star was photographed in a sparkling gold backless dress paired with mod silver jewelry and long flowing tresses that were perfectly styled.

Jada's shoot had all types of glittering oomph, that it reminded us of her golden Armani Carnival presence!

U like?!?

Because there is nothing toxic about Minnie Mouse!

Dwyane Wade And Gabrielle Union Are In No Rush To Get Married

Filed under: Love LineBasketballDwyane Wade

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union

That's refreshing to hear from a celebrity couple!

Thanks to each having already been divorced, NBA star Dwyane Wade and his gorgeous girlfriend, Gabrielle Union, are in no rush to tie the knot.

The Miami Heat player, who divorced his high school sweetheart in 2007, recently told Essence magazine:

“We’re not rushing it. Both of us have been married before, and we understand that if we choose to marry again, we want it to be right. We both took failing at marriage hard. The next time it’s gotta be forever.”

Don't think of it as failing, guys! You only "failed" if you didn't learn anything from the experience, but it sounds like you both learned your lesson.

We'd like to wish Dwyane and Gabrielle the best of luck as they continue their romance. No matter what happens in the future, just sit back and enjoy the ride!

Gabrielle Union & Her Basketball Beau Cover Essence

Filed under: Gabrielle Union

Gabrielle Union and her basketballer boyfriend of 4 years, Dwyane Wade, share the cover of Essence's February issue.

The amount of Photoshop used on the couple is out of control.

Gabby is almost unrecognizable and Dwyane? Well, we can't help but be creeped out by his perfectly manicured hairline and beard. It's like they held a template up to his face and sprayed it on.

Beyonce Covers Essence

Filed under: Beyonce

A very happy looking Beyonce is on the front of Essence magazine's July issue.

The 4 songstress also penned her own cover story and dishes on her 9 month hiatus. Bey wrote:

"I had talked about taking a vacation before, but always ended up in the studio after two weeks, so no one believed me. This time, though, I was serious. I was going to give myself a year to do the things I never get to do. Simple things like play with my nephew, pick him up from school, visit museums, go to concerts, see some Broadway shows, learn to cook a meal and spend time with my husband… Yes, I needed some relaxation, but I wanted inspiration too, from regular everyday things. They did not have to be over-the-top productions. I was looking for tiny moments that would speak to my heart and make me smile…"

We're glad you took a break, but at the same time it's nice to have you back 'bb!
