Tapes Surface Of 10-year old Beyonce Performing With Girl Group! Expected To Fetch $3.8 Million At Auction

(PCM) Who in their right mind would pay nearly $4 million dollars for some old tapes of pop superstar Beyonce at only 10-years old performing with her very first girl group Girl’s Tyme? New tapes of the group have surfaced and they are currently being auctioned off for approximately $3.8 million dollars. 

Beyonce was at one time the lead singer for the short-lived childhood girl group which later morphed into Destiny’s Child. Sources at Entertainment Weekly say that the tapes fell into the hands of celebrity memorabilia and collectors Ted Owen & Co who decided to auction off the 12 tapes which contain 2 and half hours of 10-year old Beyonce performing with Girl’s Tyme. The folks at Ted Owen & Co claim that much of this footage has never seen the light of day and was taped prior to the group making their debut television performance on “Star Search” in 1993. 

Unfortunately, Girl’s Tyme ended up losing out on “Star Search” to the rock group Skeleton Crew earning only 3 out of 4 stars. My how the tables have turned nowadays, as Beyonce is now a global performance icon.  She even recently shared footage of Girl Tyme losing out to Skeleton Crew in the music video for her track “Flawless” arguably one of the best songs on Queen Bey’s newest album. She claims the ‘”Star Search” moment was a defining moment in her childhood saying, “At that time you don’t realize that you could work super hard and give everything you have and lose.”

The tapes will remain on the auction block until January 10, 2017, so relax, there is still time to drop a cool million or so on early Beyonce goodness!

Red Lobster Sees A Huge Sales Increase After Being Mentioned In Beyonce’s New Single!


(PCM) Seafood chain restaurant Red Lobster claims they have seen an almost 33 percent increase in sales after the release of Beyonce’s new single “Formation” where in a lyric she mentions taking her man to Red Lobster after sex! Talk about the power of pop culture! Reps from Red Lobster are deeming the sales increase the “Beyonce Bounce” and definitely credit her for the huge surge in sales.

Red Lobster has seen a steady decline in sales over the last few years and was sold by Darden Restaurant Group back in 2014.  It is now privately owned by investment firm Golden Gate Capital. After Beyonce dropped the “Formation” video, Red Lobster also became trending topic on Twitter for the first time ever. Red Lobster is incredibly grateful to Queen Bey and they jokingly tweeted “Cheddar Bey Biscuits” has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?”.

It is unclear whether or not Red Lobster has attempted to make any contact with Beyonce or her camp, but things are definitely moving forward at a fairly fast pace. Red Lobster boasts 700 locations in the United States and Canada.

Beyonce Will Join Coldplay During Upcoming Super Bowl Half-Time Show!


(PCM) The news has been revealed that veteran Super Bowl half-time performer Beyonce will be joining Coldplay during their upcoming appearance at the Big Game.

Entertainment Tonight broke the story revealing that Beyonce is set to perform with Coldplay at Super Bowl 50 this February. She previously headlined the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show in New Orleans in 2013.

It was revealed that Coldplay would be headlining the Super Bowl 50 Half-Time Show taking place in California,  back in early December just prior to the release of their brand new album “A Head Full Of Dreams”.Interestingly enough, Beyonce lends guest vocals to two tracks on that album “Hymn For The Weekend” and “Up&Up”, so we are sure it is safe to assume we will at least be hearing parts of those tracks. 

It is also strongly rumored that yet another past Super Bowl half-time performer will be making an appearance as well with the news that Bruno Mars is slated to perform. Super Bowl 50 will take place Feb. 7 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.

What’s Good Philly? Made In America Day One Filled With Great Vibes And A Few Surprises!


(PCM)We once again have made the trek to Benjamin Franklin Parkway and nestled ourselves at the foot of the Art Museum to enjoy another year at the Budweiser Made In America festival. As usual BMIA features a beautiful array of eclectic talent that spans every imaginable genre of music. Today, we caught performances from The Struts, Young Rising Sons, Vic Mensa, G-Eazy, De La Soul, Nick Jonas, Meek Mill, Death Cab For Cutie, Modest Mouse, Bassnectar and of course Queen B, herself, Beyoncé.



There is never a dull moment at BMIA and right from the gate The Struts blew us away with the high-energy and deliciously sleazy rock n’ roll show! If these guys are not on your music radar than they really should be! We seriously could have watched them perform all day long…Sorry Bey! It was also fantastic to have the chance to kick it a little bit old school with De La Soul! What a fun time seeing this group perform live as they have been on our bucket list for quite sometime. The afternoon also brought us phenomenal sets from Young Risings Sons and Nick Jonas. This is the first time we have seen Nick Jonas live and he absolutely blew us away churning through his extensive catalog of hits.



The biggest surprise of the day came near the end rapper Meek Mills performance when none other than his girlfriend Nicki Minaj joined him on stage to perform the song “All Eyes On You”!
She hypnotized the audience with a simple “What’s good Philly?” reminiscent of her recent sentiments to 2015 VMA host Miley Cyrus during MTV’s live broadcast of the award show when calling Cyrus for allegedly slamming her in the press.


As we got into the evening, things slowed down a bit with performances from Death Cab For Cutie and Modest Mouse. Death Cab For Cutie held their own in a crowd that consisted mostly of hip-hop and EDM fans, however we found Modest Mouse to be a bit on the boring side. We truly wish there could have been a more solid rock headliner, but they certainly did their best to hold the audiences attention.



To close out the evening and amp up the energy we saw performances from the always engaging Bassnectar and of course Queen B, herself, Beyonce!  Beyonce absolutely stunned and put on a powerhouse performance as usual!  She was without a doubt the days most anticipated performer and plowed through her extensive catalog of hits opening with “Crazy In Love (50 Shades Remix)” and closing out with “Single Ladies”.

Jay-Z Holds A Bizarre Press Conference To Launch Tidal


(PCM) Yesterday, the internet was buzzing after Jay-Z held a bizarre celebrity-filled press conference to launch his new artist-run music subscription service called Tidal.

Jay-Z recently purchased the platform which is worth an estimated $56 million and will feature high quality audio and exclusive content that is owned by the actual artists.  Jay-Z was joined at the press conference by artists such as Rihanna, Kanye West, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Jack White, Alicia Keys, Jason Aldean, Daft Punk, Arcade Fire and of course Jay-Z’s wife Beyonce. Both Calvin Harris and Chris Martin joined in via video conference.

Tidal, prides itself as being by the artist, for the artists and will cost the listener $20 per month. It was not so much the announcement of Tidal that was bizarre, it was just the behavior of the artists in attendance. They were all lined up on the stage appearing very cult-like and made a big to-do about signing an official declaration.

The worst was Alicia Keyes incredibly confusing speech that found her rambling about everything from Jimmi Hendrix to Nietzsche while giggling and humming “Pomp & Circumstance”, she appeared more intoxicated than serious. It didn’t help matters when Madonna threw her leg up on the podium, Usher made odd hand gestures and the rest of the celebrities just stood around the stage looking uncomfortable.

Almost abruptly the sound cut out and then it was over and Tidal was official born … at least we think. You can watch the full bizarre press conference below:
