The Big Easy is officially in Formation!

Not only did Beyoncé pick the Pelican State to honor her ancestor who got to (the other) LA in 1765, but we're hearing the 90-day shoot actually employed 300 locals!

We guess good things come to states that don't try to limit their citizens' rights

Make sure to see if it was $1.35M well spent when Lemonade premieres Saturday, April 23 at 9 p.m. EST on HBO!

How does this even happen??

A 6-year-old boy was killed in Louisiana on Tuesday after police opened fire during a car chase, pursuing a vehicle in which the boy was riding.

According to reports, Jeremy Mardis was in the car with his father Chris Few behind the wheel. Few was allegedly trying to evade city marshals who were trying to serve him with a warrant.
