She’s been a long-time supporter of a whole host of charitable causes. But now Beyoncé has gone one step further than merely lending her name to a good cause.
The Halo hitmaker and songwriter Diane Warren have donated album track I Was Here to World Humanitarian Day. Hoping to encourage people around the globe to do something positive for others, the 30-year-old star is keen for her influence will help to shine a spotlight on humanitarian work.
Beyoncé will film a video for the track at the United Nations General Assembly Hall in New York City in front of a live audience on August 19. ‘We all see the headlines and we think what can I really do to help?’, she said. ‘World Humanitarian Day is an opportunity for all of us to work together to make a difference. This is our time to leave our mark on the world and show that we were here and we care.’
The campaign website which launched yesterday, encourages people to share their acts of good will, in the hope the message will reach someone.
Beyoncé’s latest act of good will comes after she announced plans to star in a documentary about her life and career. The Crazy In Love singer is to direct, produce and appear in the film which will include concert footage, backstage scenes and interviews with her and her loved ones about her life.
Bey is continuing the huge European promo push for her new album ’4′, Beyonce is featured in a photo spread for Vogue Italia, shot by Francesco Carrozzini. For the glammed up photo shoot, Stylist Rushka Bergman decked out ‘King B’ in huge Furs over Tom Ford gowns.
So everyone knows Beyonce has been everywhere the past two weeks, Press, Concerts, Photoshoots, Album promoting…..so she decided to bring us into her world. Over the past year, shes been documenting every little thing she has accomplished, take a look at this inspiring, beautiful docomentary and all the Balmain shes been wearing…..very nicely done, as always 🙂
A lady by the name of Beyonce Knowles made history…she was the first girl, or lady to headline the Glastonbury festival in 20 years.
She opened with signature tune Crazy In Love to a shedload of fireworks as she danced energetically around the stage wearing a bum-skimming gold-sequinned jacket, black pants and stiletto boots The emotional star, the first female solo headliner at the Somerset event in a quarter of a century, then enthusiastically greeted the crowd. She said: “I want you to know right now you are witnessing my dream. “I always wanted to be a rock star and tonight we are all rock stars. The performances were very touching, I must say I’ve pretty much seen every clip and performance of Beyonce ever, and this tops them all. A very emotional performance of Prince’s “Beautiful Ones” and Kings of Leon “sex on fire” will melt your heart, literally.
“Forget about your troubles, I wanna make beautiful memories. Glastonbury are you ready?” She told fans: “I’ve done a lot of things in my life but I’ve never performed to 175,000 people. This is unbelievable.”
Okay if you thought you would finally get the chance to see the full version of the highly anticipated “Run The World(Girls)” video today, ehh think again, Vevo announced yesterday that Bey decided to push the video release date back more because she wanted to “perfect the visuals”…smh Bey is always mastering perfection, Love it. But in the meantime lets step into Beyonce’s gold Gareth Pugh dress and shoes that can be spotted in the 1 minute trailer of the video that premiered earlier this week. The gold dress and Starship Enterprise boots made its debut during Gareth Pugh’s Pitti Immagine 2011 Collection preview earlier this year………im not quite sure what I think of these yet.
“I love Gareth Pugh, he’s amazing. His work is so different. The dramatic shoulder pads make your waist look teeny tiny and it’s very structured and graphic and modern. I think the contrast of his garments and my personality is really cool. And I get to dress up and be whatever I want”. -Beyonce
