Did you see Beyonce this morning on the Today show? She was strutting down the red carpet in a skin tight, bootylicious, spandex looking black cat suit ready to rock the house at 9 :00a.m. Hundreds of fans lined the red carpet hoping to get a glimpse or a handshake in addition to a free concert on the Rockefeller Center studio stage. Beyonce treated her fans to hits like “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it), “If I were a Boy” and “Crazy in Love”.
The audience was crazy in love with her.
Beyonce has been very busy this month promoting her new album “I am …Sasha Fierce”. And speaking of fierce Beyonce is a force to be reckoned with. Her album topped the charts this week by selling over 482,000 copies it’s first week. Nickelback and their new album, “Dark Horse” came in 2nd selling 326,000 copies, with David Cook, the American Idol winner, coming in 3rd with his new album titled “David Cook”, selling 280,000 copies. So it was quite a week for these great artists.
Plus Beyonce also had that hilarious spoof on SNL with Justin Timberlake and the guys singing back up for her on her hit “Single Ladies”. Justin and the boys dressed up in tights and leotards and it couldn’t be funnier. Check it out on U tube if you haven’t seen it already.
Next up for Beyonce, the release of her new movie on December 5th, “Cadillac Records” where she plays the legendary Etta James. Beyonce had to gain 20 pounds for the role and dot her arms with track marks to depict the blues legend that struggled with a heroin addiction. Beyonce says this was a difficult and emotional role for her and it left her shaken even after the cameras stopped rolling. IT definitely looks like a role of a lifetime.
Beyonce will also be present and performing at the highly anticipated and star studded Inauguration Ceremony. There is even the possibility of her husband Jay – Z performing as well. So stay tuned, Beyonce is just warming up and shows no signs of slowing down in the year to come.
