Queen of Hearts: Beyoncé & Gucci "Chime for Change"

Beyoncé is all about girl power, and her latest partnership, with Gucci allows her to express some of  her own girl power.  

B, Salma Hayek and Frida Gianni launched a new Gucci global campaign for female empowerment, called Chime For Change.  The global initiative was developed to raise funds and awareness for women and girls worldwide.  
The initiative aims to raise funds and awareness in support of projects for girls and women around the world, through sharing "powerful stories" about inspiring females. (Source: Vogue UK)
"I have always felt strongly about equal opportunity for women. Girls have to be taught from early on that they are strong and capable of being anything they want to be. It's up to us to change the statistics for women around the world. I'm honored to be in the company of women who live fearlessly and set an example for the next generation of young ladies," Beyoncé said of her involvement in the project.

Salma Hayek announced the campaign today, at the TEDxWomen luncheon, where she also, presented a short film, which gives insight into the initiative's goals and vision, it's set to new music by B.  And is the first of 10 Chime For Change short films.

You can watch the video below and see photos below.  Now head over to:  Catapult.org  and join Beyoncé Knowles-Carter's Team and donate for her causes.

A Luv'n POTUS: President Obama Embraces One of His Youngest Supporters...


The POTUS has captured the heart of another future democrat!  Yesterday morning during the dedication of Rosa Parks' new statue at the U.S. Capitol--President Obama spent time with many of Rosa Parks' relatives.  And one was 3-year-old Terrell Anderson Jr. of Detroit, who the POTUS picked up, and little Terrell touched the President's hair.

So, adorable.  I can only imagine the pride, the President felt during this moment.  But this isn't the first time, in 2008, there was also 5-year-old Jacob Philadelphia of Columbia, Ma, who also wanted to know if the President's hair felt like his, too.

Mogul Moves: Jay-Z Makes Major Publishing Move...

  Beyonce Knowles - HBO Documentary Film "Beyonce: Life Is But A Dream" New York Premiere - After Party
We all know the real money in music comes from publishing.  The more of your publishing share you control, the more of your own money you control.  So it comes as no surprise, that Mr. Carter made another big publishing move, today.  The New York Times reports that Jay has followed "top publishing" executive Jon Platt or Big Jon as he's known in hip-hop & r & b cicrcles to Warner Music Group--where he (Jay) has created a new publishing partnership for himself and his Roc Nation artist.

Jay's own deal, will include all of his future publishing and publishing dating back to 2008.  He acquired the ownership of his full catolog from Def Jam back in 2006, when he took over as part of the deal that made him President/CEO.  No word on who'll publish his catalog prior to 2006, which he gains 100% ownership of in 2016.

Here's what the Times says about the Roc Nation deal:
Through a separate deal, Warner/Chappell will also represent the songwriters at Jay-Z’s entertainment and management company, Roc Nation.
Among those writers are Philip Lawrence, a part of the Smeezingtons songwriting and production team that also includes Bruno Mars; Symbolyc One, or S1; and Rita Ora, a rising young British singer and songwriter.
Jay said the following of the deal:
“The real meaning of success is being in the position to work with an individual you consider a friend. Jon Platt is such a person. He’s a man of extraordinary character as well as a remarkably talented executive with an ear for music and an eye for talent. It’s great to watch him grow to be one the best in the business.”

Beyoncé posed in the bright, flower-inspired gems created for her by Jozlyn, 12, which prominently feature the color blue for Beyoncé’s daughter Blue Ivy. “There was a lot of thought put into that,” Schwartz tells PEOPLE. “Beyoncé couldn’t have been more touched.” She adds that Jozlyn is “obsessed” with the superstar, saying “She’s the biggest star in the world to her … and [Jozlyn] was beyond excited to find out she wore her jewelry.”  (Source: People)

Life Is But A Dream: Beyoncé Reveals Herself, Her Life & Her Worldview in "Life Is But A Dream" Doc...

Last night, Beyoncé:  Life Is But A Dream debuted on HBO and the doc didn't disappoint.  It showed and open honest Beyoncé talking candidly about life, love, family and motherhood.  It showed Beyoncé the person not the superstar.

It began with B dealing with the separation from her dad, as her manager.  B revealed the strain of ending their professional relationship caused even greater stress in their personal relationship.  It was a very difficult time for her, one that she says effected her "soul".  But it looks like all is well between them now, as Matthew is seen holding a newborn Blue, later on in the doc.  

B talked about the struggles that women face and how much harder women face at work.  She said it, "pisses" her off that women have to work harder and don't get paid the same as men.  She went on to say that men are able to control because, they control the money.  It was a powerful segment.

B also showed off the close bond between her and Jay.  She loves him to death and vice-verse.  I enjoyed watching the Carters being Crazy In Love.  And of course she talked about her pregnancy and showed off her belly.  B's joy during her pregnancy and love of motherhood shows, throughout the doc.  She tears up and smiles from ear-to-ear whenever, she talked about Blue or Jay.  I love it.

To be? Or not to be?  Are Jay and Justin headed for the road?  Word is Mr. Carter & Mr. Timberlake are planning a joint North American tour.   Supposedly the details are being worked out as we speak.

So far it's being reported that they will perform stadium shows in 10 major cities.  I wonder if it'll be more like Jay and Mary's Heart of The City Tour or the  Watch The Throne Tour?  Probably more like HOTC, because they (JZ & JT) only have one collabo together.
