Beyonce, for anyone who’s followed her career long enough, stands as one of the only ’90s newbies’ to hold more weight as a star today than she did ‘back then’.

A feat that many make the mistake of overlooking, recent years have seen the performer elevated to ‘living legend’ status in honor of her skills on stage- but more importantly- the military-esque campaigns that ensure she stays ‘on top’ even when on hiatus.

It’s for this reason many fans anticipate the launch of her fifth studio album next year, especially now she has been confirmed as Superbowl 2013‘s headlining act, ultimately giving the project no choice but to pull in ‘B’Day’ numbers come release week.

Now find out why she is already reaping the rewards for the gig, five months before it actually happens, below…


In news that can only be deemed the most tragic of tragic, various sources are confirming that singer Natina Reed from R&B group Blaque (center) was killed in Atlanta late last night (October 26th).

Details remain sketchy at present, however a number of notable Atlanta figures state that Reed died after being hit by a car as she crossed the street. The car in question is said to have then sped off.

Reid, who is survived by 10 year old son Tren Brown (whose father is rapper Kurupt), was just 32.

The tragedy will see many look to the untimely passing of TLC’s Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes – who many will remember championed Blaque upon their debut in the late 90’s. Lopes died, aged 30, in a car accident in 2002.

Tomorrow would have been Reid’s 33rd birthday.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Natina’s family and friends.
