Hot Shot: Beyonce & Jay Z Visit The Cooper Hewitt Design Museum

Published: Sunday 14th Feb 2016 by Sam

Beyonce may have Grammy buzz building back in Los Angeles, but the superstar diva was spotted enjoying a cultured evening in New York City.

Queen Bey and her mogul husband Jay Z were snapped at The Cooper Hewitt Design Museum, where they watched the ‘Afreaks!’ show. The power couple posed it up with the cast afterwards backstage. Peep the pic below..


Director Mason Poole, who helmed the pair’s ‘On The Run’ promos, thanked them saying:

Artists unite! Thank you Beyoncé and Jay-Z for meeting with the incredibly talented and inspirational “Haas Sistas,” and The Haas Brothers at their “Afreaks!” show last night.

Good stuff.

On a relatively random note, we’d love to see Bey incorporate some African inspired sounds into her upcoming album. There’s been many a murmur about ‘4’ supposed to have been more Afro-kissed (ala ‘End of Time’), but whatever the case it’s never too late, ay?!

Your thoughts?

  2. HailBeysus February 14, 2016

    Yas! She looks so pretty! Im so excited for this album. I hope she tackles major issues in it as well. Im already seeing alot of comments of people who typically aren’t Bey fans but want to buy her new album to see what the buzz is all about! She has such an incredible instrument and God given talent, it deserves to used for so much more than just pure entertainment. Speak your mind child and don’t let the powers that be suppress or silence you!

    • LmfaoHoe February 14, 2016

      You are absolutely right. I think right now where she stand career wise there’s nothing wrong with her going into her Janet “Rhythm Nation”, Marvin Gaye “What’s Going On ” MJ “They Don’t Care About Us/ HiStory” Prince ” Sign of the Times ” Sly Family Stone “Theres a Riot Outside ” type era.

      • HailBeysus February 14, 2016

        Yes she is! Now its up to us as the fans to keep her where she is. We all know how they manipulated the charts when MJ spoke out against them. When a news reporter asked him why his album was number 1 all over the world except the US. He even came forward and said it was a conspiracy against him and he didn’t want to talk about it anymore.

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 14, 2016

        This is racism in its purest form. This is people being mad that BEYONCE is bringing awareness to black lives matter. We let the racist media to tear MJ down; we let them tear Janet down; and now they’re currently gunning for Beyonce.This is bigger than anything the beyhive has ever dealt with.

    • HailBeysus February 14, 2016

      Who cares formation is Beyond the Hot100. The world is talking about it whether it be good or bad! What song is number 1 anyway??? Is the world talking about it?? (Sips tea)

      • King Mark111 /.\ February 14, 2016

        Not on the charts. The saying talk is cheap comes to mind. I thought Beyonce outshined Rihanna, but Work is at #7 and charted at #8 with only a day of release and streaming. Where is Formation?

      • HailBeysus February 14, 2016

        Kii meanwhile politicians, Beys music peers and the GP have Beys name in their mouths. Whats a Frih again???

      • King Mark111 /.\ February 14, 2016

        #1 on the albums chart and #7 on the hot 100. Again, where is Flopnation after a week of performing on the biggest show on Tv? Why hasn’t it charted?

      • HailBeysus February 14, 2016

        Yaaaasss MARSHA SEETH HUNTEA!!! You are so pressed because Work or Anti didn’t get this much attention once it came out. Beyonce only dropped a buzz single and you heaxus went into seething overload IM SCREAMING!!!!!

    Taking what? because I don’t see her on BB. Maybe next week.

    • Fran February 14, 2016

      Shouldnt you be worrying about anti free falling down the album charts? Anti didn’t even sell 200k WW no wonder you are mad.

  13. Fran February 14, 2016

    Queen Beyonce back with a vengeance and already stealing everyones shine.

  14. shakira stan February 14, 2016

    She looks old haggard and tired ,Jay z looks like a c**** with hernia. I see anti still got her bothered.

    • Fran February 14, 2016

      Bothered by what? Failing to sell 200k WW in a week. Failing to sell out arenas or being out charted by a member of 1D?

      • shakira stan February 14, 2016

        B**** where is flopation on the charts ?
        Be seated.

      • Fran February 14, 2016

        Where is anti?

        Oh wait

        US chart preview (TEA/SEA): @1future 145-150k, @Adele 105-110k, @coldplay 95-100k, @rihanna 67-72k, @justinbieber 65-70k, @wizkhalifa 60-65k

      • shakira stan February 14, 2016

        But work is getting that top 5 this week, when was the last time bbeyonce had a top 5 hit?
        How many views has flotation racked up on YouTube even with all the Superbowl hype
        She is done.

      • Fran February 14, 2016

        Formation is owning NEWS headlines and had more attention than the entire ANTI era. But you better cling to that #5 position. Will it out chart Drunk In Love. None of her flop singles have yet.

      • shakira stan February 14, 2016

        Lol work is anything but a flop .you tried though.. No one is talking about formation sis ,all they are talking about is her tripping of the damn stage ,jacking of a legend and talking about black issues in a sports meant to unite every ethnicity ,where millions of free born Americans tune in to watch a sport played predominantly by 70 percent blacks … The world is not talking about her greatness but how stupid selfish and obnoxious she is.

      • Fran February 14, 2016

        Just because you’re a dumb idiot who doesn’t follow news and only reads blogs, don’t preach like it’s the truth. If no one is talking about formation, why is it all over the main news channels ano sparking political debate all over the Internet and having skits made about it on SNL? When did work? The flop was outshine by Zayne and Drake and she pushed back the video release after Formation came out. I thiught she only knew #1? Call me when it out chars DIL.

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 14, 2016

      Sam should ban you from commenting until the next World Cup

      • shakira stan February 14, 2016

        Beyonce won’t have a career by the next world cup .You wanna bet ?

    • Slayty Perry (Still the Superbowl Record Holder) February 14, 2016

      Shakira looks and sounds like a goat

  15. Tyler Makiavelli February 14, 2016

    I’m trying to be civil but Marsha’s really trying it! LOL Anti is currently being BODIED by Future’s mixtape. So she needs to fall tf back.

    • HailBeysus February 14, 2016

      Lmao on HDD anti is placed at the 6th spot with 45,000 copies sold kiii!!!!

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 14, 2016

        I’m surprised TGJ hasn’t made a post about it. I guess there are more important issues, currently going on in Pop culture, to worry about *sips tea*

      • HailBeysus February 14, 2016

        @Tyler you shady mothafucka! I see what you did there. (Sips tea doused in Honey)

  16. HailBeysus February 14, 2016

    Lmfaoooo Marsha is seething and posting irrelevant arguments! Beyonce done stole Friannas shine. Nobody is talking about Frih! I get why you mad tho. Anyteaways, stop trying to cause a Stan War MARSHA! The Battle is won! Formation is making headlines worldwide. Bey proving once again she don’t need BB Hot 100. She’ll debut on the Charts with 100x more albums sold than #460! She’ll also top the chart her first week with sales above 166k lmfao!!!! Its okay Huntea we see why you mad.

  17. DIABETES UNBOTHERED February 14, 2016

    LOL Mark is so delusional glorifying RIHSCEDULED 3rd MODEST HIT in a row after FFS & BBHMM ALL Moderate hits at best. We are neck deep into R8 & still no hit as big as DRUNK IN LOVE or that ganared as much ATTENSION as FORMATION in 1 single week & thats not even a single its just Bey talking S*** like she did on BOWDOWN. Shes clearly entitled to do so since shes literally the ONLY Black artist still SHITTING at the moment. RIH must not even own a TOILET cuz ANTI didnt even sell 200k ww 1st week and will take a whole month & a half just to sell what UNA sold first week in the states. Thats the diffrence bw bey & Rih beys career isnt on the decline, she just keep getting bigger with each album. #460

  18. RihYonce February 14, 2016

    Y’all I’m getting nervous! Kanye & Rihanna made their album tidal exclusives & im really thinking Beyoncé is going to do it to lol I hope not ! I would cry if her album is exclusively on tidal lmao

    • HailBeysus February 14, 2016

      Lol! Hopefully not we see how that’s working out. Either way she’ll out do both if she does lmao!

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 14, 2016

      If Beyonce releases this album exclusively to Tidal`I am going to be beyond pissed lol.
      She isn’t even signed to Roc Nation. It would be foolish for her to pull a stunt like that lmao.

  19. DIABETES UNBOTHERED February 14, 2016

    I also find it funny (skid)MARK was the main one talking about RIHSCEDULED being #STADIUMSTATUS Yet as i speak tickets are STILL AVAILABLE on LIVE NATION even the $25 nose bleed & Headache seats. This is a BASIC ARENA TOUR. But as the DIABETIC ORACLE checks LIVENATION again for FORMATION PRESALE is SOLDOUT with avg front row tickets of $3k a piece

    • HailBeysus February 14, 2016

      Lmaoooo!! Spill the tea sis!!!

  20. The Truth February 14, 2016

    This is such blasphemy!!! Don’t y’all see it in the pic with the car? That symbolizes the tree of life. The darkness means it is dying. The tree of life represents mankind and good. Beyoncé has on a collection of sticks in the form of a crown. Sheeva represents the queen of destruction. She had a male counterpart who represented the same. I CANNOT make this up, y’all. I encourage you all to research CERN and the Grammys. This is no joke, guys. Our time on this earth is soon coming to an end. New world order is in place. I’m not here to appear like a hater, but if you are reading this, you have already been warned. Don’t let ignorance cause you to lose the most valuable thing you will ever possess—that’s your soul! Open your eyes people!!!! Please!!!

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 14, 2016

      The illuminati thing makes sense for people that don’t have much and wonder where they went wrong in life. They can’t explain a black woman’s success without one of the trifecta: the illuminati, the white Devils, or selling out to corporations. With that logic, one has to wonder what God these wildly successful black people and the racist white power structure is praying to if they stay winning *sarcasm*.

      • The Truth February 14, 2016

        Successful?! Lol! You really think these black people are really that rich?! Stop!!!! There are JEWISH people at the top that own Beyoncé, JayZ, the media, the BIG BANKS (that have investments in much more than just your account), etc. What you see on tv isn’t always as glamorized as what you are lead to believe. You ever seen a “gothic” person in a movie? Notice those same symbols are the same that you can spot in Beyonce’s videos, hand gestures, etc. I can’t believe how many of you would prefer to stay ignorant than realize the truth! Just because you ignore the signs doesn’t mean big, bad things aren’t headed this way. I encourage you to research CERN. Then compare your findings to what is described in Revelations from the Bible. It’s so scary, it might make you cry.

      • Tyler Makiavelli February 14, 2016

        Beyonce and Jay-Z are very successful in their field. You just can’t fathom the idea of a Black couple being so accomplished without the help of “The White Man.” You have fallen victim to this Racist and Satanism society. I bet you’re the type who blindly follows this pure s*** and goes on you tube watching videos about all of this Illuminati nwo b*******.

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED February 14, 2016

      I used to belive in the ILLUMINITI Idea back when i DIDNT HAVE A JOB. Now that i got one i realise u can make money without the 666 stamp about the forehead area.

      • The Truth February 14, 2016

        Lol! I work 12 hour days, 4 days a week. I pay my taxes, AND I have good health care insurance. That doesn’t mean the truth doesn’t even exist. It’s funny because I didn’t even mention anything about Illuminati, but you knew what I was talking about. The fact that you are familiar with the cult also means that you have been warned of what’s to come. Don’t let your ignorance cause for the destruction of your soul. It’s foolishness at its fineness.

  22. Meteorite February 14, 2016

    I wonder if she is going to drop her album during the Grammys?

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 14, 2016

      I hope she drops it sometime during Black History Month. What if she dropped it on Feb 29th, Leap Year? That would be sick af!

      • Meteorite February 14, 2016

    So funny to me that of all stanbases ALIYAH stans love bringing back bad memories. Aliyahs PUS*SY got burned atleast 5 times in her PATHETIC BASIC DISMAL ASHANTIS LESSOR CAREER:
    1. By R KELLY (a married man)
    2. JAYZ
    3. DAME DASH (who bought her from jayz)
    5. IN HELL

  26. MsYonce February 14, 2016

    @Mark Of course you won’t see Formation on the hot 100 its not even on ITunes gosh stop acting so dumb. The song is FREE on tidal. She didn’t get a company to buy 1 million so it could be platinum or anything its FREE.

  27. MsYonce February 14, 2016

    How do you expect to a song chart when it can’t be purchased anywhere? Lool the navy is dumb I swear

  28. Barb B**** February 14, 2016

    You really disrespect Aaliyah’s memory with those pictures. How you gunna try and DESPERATELY use another woman’s current husband to shade. Aaliyah and Jay are the past. You act as if she would be childish and cling to I had him first. You’re no true Aaliyah fan. I could shade the fuxk out of Aaliyah for her shady past but I won’t. I truly see and reliase you are nothing but a Frih stan thats hiding behind another.



    Oops. Drag a bit.

  30. HailBeysus February 14, 2016

    Aaliyah Dana Carter you are doing nothing but dragging your own “fav”. You’re disrespecting her memory and shaming her by comments like “at least her pvssy worked”. Like are you fuxking serious right now!?!?!? You’re nothing but a closeted Frih stan just like Marsha! Y’all don’t even know her true stats yet want to ride for Aaliyah hard. Stop hiding and change that Avi to a Blasphemous certain 4 5 head kiii!!

  31. XXX February 14, 2016

    I’m liking Beyonces natural look she is going for recently.

  32. NiDIABETES UNBOTHERED February 14, 2016

    The only beauty able to compete with DECEASEDLIYAH in the 90s was Jhoe. Aliyah was linked to a trio of friends Rkelly & Jayz & Damedash whom bets on her and All ended up WINNING. the only other guy Bey was Linked to was MARQUES HOUSTON In the 90s and he doesnt even like woman. #CLOCKED The selfdrag. #UNBOTHERED *sips grapejuice*

  33. Barb B**** February 14, 2016

    Someone needs a lesson in the art of dragging. At least it’s being ignored now.

  34. Slayty Perry (Still the Superbowl Record Holder) February 14, 2016

    Im surprised that Rih stans are throwing shade given that her album flopped hard and her tour is struggling. I wouldn’t be surprised if Work starts free falling by next week either. I thought Rih would bring it but she choked. Anyways, though I dont use Beyonce, I am a fan of Formation and the message she brought during the SuperBowl and will be perched for that iTunes release.

    P.S: Katy Perry still holds the record for most watched SuperBowl Half-Time performance. It also won two Emmys

  35. NiDIABETES UNBOTHERED February 14, 2016

    In my honest opionion WORK & FORMATION are neck and neck. Work is neither good or bad just ok but i do like the random parts where she hums but the track is still a BORE Esp for a dancehall ragae track. Formation is the opposite it contains itz on brand of messiness but atleast its not SAFE and actually fun to listen to. WORK will not be a huge hit for rih cuz it just a loud leftover. & atleast Formation isnt a single. If rih cant sell the album or tickets she should ATLEAST get a Big hit on the level of hotline bling or Dil both big #2 hits.

    • shakira stan February 14, 2016

      B**** hit the gym .

  36. LuxuryPillow February 14, 2016

    Lol this slob did not just say work and formation is on the same level.

  37. Rose Pet February 14, 2016

    Meanwhile there is a debate about whether or not bey is fly enough to release her album on tidal exclusively and still sell… Hmmm

    • HailBeysus February 14, 2016

      Gurl what debate!?!? Only messy ass TGJ commenters are talking about it. They want her to release on Tidal exclusively just because Frihs dumbass did and flopped kiii!!!

  38. Attack It From The Back Miss Kitty Kat February 14, 2016

    Girl hush we already know BEYLoWCharts never take risks! She is such a calculating robotic bore… And it shows in her music. Kiii that’s the real reason why she can’t release there because her music is $hit.

    A platinum album with rotating hits that actually charts cannot be considered a flop. Rihanna’s ANTI is where it’s at boo. Chart your faves music. Blog hopping ain’t it.

    • HailBeysus February 14, 2016
