HipHollywood has learned that Beyonce has personally chosen Grammy Award-nominated artist Luke James to be her opening act on the US and Canadian leg of “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.”
The “I Want You” singer opened for Beyonce during her European dates and won the hearts of fans around the world. “Luke James is pure talent. He is a gifted singer and songwriter. I am excited to have him continue on the tour,” Beyoncé shared in a statement to HH.
After such a successful tour overseas, the New Orleans native couldn’t be more thrilled to continue working alongside Bey and her team. “Being on tour overseas with Beyoncé was magical! I learned so much from her in Europe. Her artistry, professionalism and work ethic are incomparable,” he says.
“She and Jay-Z gave me great advice about perfecting my live show and connecting with the audience. I am really looking forward to bringing that same energy and performance that I delivered overseas to the U.S. audience,” Luke added.
Luke will re-join Beyoncé beginning on June 29th at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, through August 5th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
Stay tuned for HipHollywood.com next week for an exclusive look inside the life of Luke and his music career.
Jill Scott’s Drunken Disaster NOT The Result Of Divorce Drama … So She Says.
Jill Scott is blaming it on the alcohol … not her divorce.
Jilly from Philly had one drink (or several) too many and decided to document her mood for all to see on social media. By the looks of it, she instantly regretted it.
Scott snatched the video down within hours of posting it, but that was still long enough for fans to reach out to the songstress with cries of concern in her comment section. Jill, who recently filed for divorce from her second husband, Mike Dobson, seemed to be crying in the beginning of the video … then laughing hysterically by the end. And, of course, her tribe of supporters took notice.
Unfortunately, Scott wasn’t here for the sympathy. Instead she clapped back at those insinuating she was drowning her divorce tears in a bottle of Henny. In an IG post captioned, “Real Talk. Good Night,” Jill explained that all y’all need to chill and not everything is about her ex.
So, do you believe her? Jill and Mike were married just 15 months before Scott filed for divorce citing “inappropriate marital conduct.” Dobson then went on a media tour shading the Neo-soul singer calling her controlling and evil.
Look, Jill, if you are hitting the bottle to hide your pain we won’t blame you. Even if it is “out of your mind” we’re sure it’s still stressful and that’s ok. On the other hand, if you were justing getting super lit on a Saturday, then more power to you!
