Beyoncé gave a lot of good tidbits in her Elle magazine interview including insight into her new activewear line, Ivy Park and her thoughts on feminism, but it was her comments on the “Formation” Super Bowl controversy that really stood out.

Don’t take Bey’s silence for weakness. While she was initially mum on all the chatter surrounding her controversial performance, the Queen is now speaking out and speaking loud — “Let’s be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice.”

When Elle asked the pop superstar “What do you feel people don’t understand about who you really are, and in particular about the message you’ve put forward with “Formation”?” This was her response.

I mean, I’m an artist and I think the most powerful art is usually misunderstood. But anyone who perceives my message as anti-police is completely mistaken. I have so much admiration and respect for officers and the families of officers who sacrifice themselves to keep us safe. But let’s be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice. Those are two separate things. If celebrating my roots and culture during Black History Month made anyone uncomfortable, those feelings were there long before a video and long before me. I’m proud of what we created and I’m proud to be a part of a conversation that is pushing things forward in a positive way.

BOOM! And with that, Beyoncé has silenced the haters. At least for now. Let’s be honest, they’ll try to find something else to hate by next week.

While Bey did cover a lot of topics in her interview, there was one things missing … an album update. C’mon B, the Hive is waiting!

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!

Published

Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…

Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.

If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.

So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
