Beyoncé never ceases to surprise us with her methods of slaying the stage, and after killing her performances across Europe, she deemed her last show on the continent deserved a mic drop...literally.While performing in Nice, France, on Tuesday, July 17, Bey performed her infamous ballad on infidelity, “Resentment.” The track from her B’Day album became a staple at her performances during the first On the Run tour in 2014. It seems that with every performance of the song, Queen Bey switches up her rendition just a bit. With every switch, fans get their lives, but her latest stunt has the Beyhive going "Apes**t." In the clip, we hear Yoncé effortlessly hitting all of the notes before we see her iconically drop the mic.When Twitter got ahold of the footage, it was a done deal.Beyoncé really slayed the stage tonight. Watch until the end, that mic drop! #OTRII

One thing remains true about our forever first family; the Obamas know how to have a good time. The youngest of the crew, Sasha Obama, was spotted at Beyoncé and Jay-Z's On the Run II show in Paris getting her life with a few friends.

The Obamas seemingly have a healthy relationship with the Knowles-Carter family. Bey gave a classic rendition of the national anthem at President Obama's inauguration, and, in 2017, Michelle was one of the stars to get in formation and dress up as the Everything Is Love singer as part of Beyoncé's birthday tribute.We are absolutely here for two of the most influential black families in the world linking up.

Turns out, there's a slight scheduling issue with OTR II's Paris stop and the World Cup.France has made it to the final match of what's arguably the biggest sports event in the world, and with the nation tuning in to root for their players, Beyoncé and JAY-Z figured out a whole new way to cater to their crowd!As USA TODAY reports, the popular couple won't make their fans choose: instead they plan to combine their concert with a broadcast of the match! France won its semi-final game against Belgium in a 1-0, victory and will be advancing to the final match on July 15, the same day as Bey and Jay's Paris leg of their tour. The pair announced on Wednesday they're hosting a World Cup viewing party at Stade de France stadium, and their performance will jump off after the game is over.“Twenty years after the French team won its first world title, Beyonce and JAY-Z invite people with tickets for their concert to come to the Stade de France at 16h00 in order to take advantage of the stadium’s screens, as well as those of the production team, to carry Les Bleus towards their final victory," the OTR II Paris tour organizers said according to Sport Pesa News. Wondering who'll be facing off against France at the grand finale? Croatia, after a stunning defeat of England. Let the games begin! Liking this content?

Beyoncé isn’t the most celebrated living entertainer for no reason, and her actions during a stage malfunction in Poland is further proof as to why. Bey and Jay-Z were ending a set when their flying OTR II stage malfunctioned in midair. Keeping their cool, it wasn’t initially apparent to fans that something wasn’t right until the credits began rolling and the couple wasn’t coming back down to the ground. Upon Queen Bey’s thank you to their dancers, fans and their crew for building the stage (we’re going to assume she wasn’t shady here), crew members quickly ran out with a ladder to help the couple down.The floating stage had a malfunction and got stuck at the end of the show so Beyoncé had to use an emergency ladder in order to leave. #OTRII

Nothing is worse than seeing your parents act suggestively, and Blue Ivy’s face during the London stop of the “On the Run II” tour is pure evidence of that! During part of the show, Blue can be seen bouncing to her mom and dad’s hits before her face suddenly blanches and becomes one of disgust. The 6-year-old is hilariously seen covering her eyes, turning her head and then ducking below the concert fencing to no avail! The unfortunate girl can’t escape the image.Reports vary as to what Blue saw – one fan page reported it was a scene of Bey and Jay in bed; the page later corrected itself and updated the post to say Blue was reacting to an image of Beyoncé twerking. Another user found a recording of an ‘OTRII’ interlude with the same music in the background as the video with Blue, featuring Beyoncé twerking in a red-lit room while Jay-Z films her before she suggestively climbs into bed on top of him. lmao i was wrong i went and looked it up pic.twitter.com/m1EwAxeEia— ' (@babyheirandafro) June 19, 2018Regardless of the scene, Blue was appalled, shook and ready to go!Blue watching the interlude of her parents in bed LMAOOOO pic.twitter.com/lcHqubL67p— tink.

As you know, Beyoncé has quite the reputation when it comes to charitable acts, specifically through her organization, BeyGOOD. Most recently, she and husband JAY-Z decided to combine their philanthropy with their ongoing joint-tour, On The Run II, giving away tickets to those engaged in acts of charity of their own.As OTR II starts its European leg, it looks like the power couple are turning their philanthropic attention to sick children in Scotland. According to the Daily Record, Bey and Jay performed for thousands of fans at Hampden Park in Glasgow on Saturday night.
Thank you Glasgow for being an amazing audience!
A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on Jun 10, 2018 at 1:53pm PDTAhead of the performance, Bey decided to make the most of her time in Scotland by donating to some of the local charities, including the John O'Byrne Foundation, which aims to bring joy to sick children through various means. Bey donated eight pairs of exclusive shoes (specially designed for her dance crew on the tour) as well as a beautiful baby crib for a family in need.John O'Byrne, who lives with brittle bone disease, started the foundation four years ago. “I was given the shoes by a friend who contacted me saying Beyoncé and her staff wanted to donate them and some other things,” noted O'Byrne. Three children joined the founder along with their parents at the concert on Saturday, and he will give each of them a pair of the shoes. He will also give a pair to one child who was too sick to attend the concert that night.O'Byrne confirmed Bey's management asked him to keep them updated on his foundation's progress.“I am really excited someone like Beyoncé now knows about my foundation. They were so good and helpful because it involved kids who are in hospital a lot,” said...
With the On The Run II Tour in full swing, and candid Carter photos gracing social media, all eyes have been on Bey and Jay. Beyoncé’s OTR II dancers have gotten some attention, too. While touring in England, the ladies went to Menagerie, a bar in Manchester, for a night out. The restaurant posted a few snaps of the dancers looking fierce, and according to the Manchester Evening News, it was lit.

While we're usually excited whenever the notoriously private Carter family gives us a peek into their personal lives, that still doesn't mean Beyoncé and Jay-Z can't catch these jokes.On June 6, the couple kicked off the European leg of their On the Run II tour which granted us a look at the twins, their vow renewal and even some intimate home videos of Bey's pregnancy. They also decided to put it all on display by giving us a tour book which features some private photos of the two lovers laid up in bed. Beyoncé & JAY-Z 🔥🍑 #OTRII

pic.twitter.com/44XjKX53w9— BEYONCÉ LEGION (@BeyLegion) June 9, 2018The nude photos have rendered some mixed reactions, but some of the best responses were the funny ones. From people saying that Kim K would have at least edited Kanye to look perfect to people comparing Jay-Z to William from Girlfriends, the internet found a way to get their jokes off once again.OMG. He looks soooooo uncomfortable. I was trying to wait til the next #beyhive meeting to discuss this. The July 4 meeting was cancelled due to the holiday. But we need to chat about this image from the ORTII tour book that is flooding the Internet. I haven’t seen OTRII (yet?). The first review I saw was a friend saying that the concert seemed like Jay-Z’s “I’m just here so she won’t leave me” tour. She was kinda joking, but not. Now I view everything thru that lens. I love Cousin Bey. And Uncle Jay. l❤️ love. I want to see them happy. And I’ve seen the Yoko Ono -John Lennon photo that probably inspired this image. (NOTE: Ono kept her clothes on.) This image strikes me as Kanye and his wife level attention seeking. I like my cries for attention to have more subtlety. But that’s just me. (In fairness to Kanye’s wife she would have photoshopped Kanye to be at his best. Speaking of Kanye, I know he’s been on one lately, but has anyone been by to check on the kids?) Also, who took this “intimate” picture? Photographer? Self timer? This is the best of the bunch? That’s... yeah. Cousin Bey looks great, per usual. Minus the “eye patch” shadow. They ain’t have to to Unc like that tho. #ontheruntour #fightmeA post shared by Demetria L. Lucas (@demetriallucas) on Jun 10, 2018 at 1:24pm PDTJay Z cheated

Earlier today, Blavity reported Beyoncé and Jay-Z had released their second photos of infant twins Rumi and Sir. But Beyhive, we are sorry to report that the babies pictured in the kickoff show of Beyoncé and Jay-Z's "On The Run II" were not the offspring of '03 Bonnie & Clyde.
#Beyoncé & #JayZ finally decided to show the twins off at the opening of their #OTR tour!
A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on Jun 6, 2018 at 12:24pm PDTAccording to BuzzFeed, a representative for Beyoncé said the babies pictured in the photos, which spread through social media faster than Beychella, were not the Beybabies we believed them to be.But the silver lining is: there is actual footage of the real Sir and Rumi in the below Instagram clip of the Bey and Jay during their vowel renewal ceremony.

We all remember the exact feeling that washed over us as we saw that iconic Charlie's Angels silhouette: Beyoncé, Kelly and Michelle at Coachella. Much like the excitement of the trio's reunion during Bey's 2013 Super Bowl performance, fans were left wanting more. Was there a new project looming? Would they perform again?Well, of course, the rumors are swirling! Several sources say that Kelly and Michelle may join Bey for On The Run II, the follow-up to her collaboration tour with her hubby JAY-Z, The Sun reports."Beyoncé worked tirelessly on her Coachella headline performance, but the crowning moment was her medley with Kelly and Michelle. They really enjoyed working together again after so long and now Bey is keen for them to be part of On The Run II," an unnamed source told the paper.“The girls have their own work commitments and families but could fly out for certain dates to surprise fans because they’re all aware of the demand for a reunion," the source continued.A few months ago, Bey officially announced OTR II, which will be hitting North America in July after a stint in Europe.
