This is NOT a drill people! 

So as we know, Queen Bey's Lemonade was a massive success (Amen!)

As a result of the album's popularity, a university in America announced it will offer an entire class on the subject.

The University of Texas at San Antonio will offer it's students a class entitled "Black Women, Beyoncé, and Popular Culture."

Emmm… sign us up immediately?

Students of this class will study "the singer's ode to 'black womanhood' and how it relates to 'theoretical, historical, and literary frameworks of black feminism.'" 

The course will focus mainly on Lemonade, and will "follow the album's progression all the way from Formation to All Night." 

The lecturer is Kinitra D. Brooks, who is a scholar of race, gender, and horror.

This is AMAZING.

Don your leopards, single ladies, because a Beyoncé fitness class has come to town. 

The class is by Fearless Moves, a dun fitness initiative that combines epic tunes with an energetic work out. 

The next session, on Saturday January 27, is the Beyoncé Edition, and frankly we wouldn't miss it for the world (new year, new us, right?).

Hosted in The Bernard Shaw, the circuit class promises to make you sweat, but beginners are welcome. 

Oh, and Ivy Park gear definitely is not an essential. 

'The session will feature a live DJ and instructor who have been challenged to come up with a Beyoncé-versus deadly divas remix for the class,' reads the event description.

Best of all, the ticket to the class includes a super healthy brunch which will be served after. 

After all, it couldn't be Beyoncé themes without a little luxury, right?

Tickets are priced at €31.97 and are available here.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their third child via surrogate earlier this week and their famous friends, Beyoncé and Jaz Z, have already extended their congratulations in the form of a very generous gift.

According to The Sun Online, the superstar couple gifted the newborn a $15,000 one-of-a-kind Lorraine Schwartz diamond incrusted bracelet.

The enormous act of generosity would suggest that their infamous feud has come to an end, with a source confirming the couples are “famila” once again.

The reconciliation comes after Kanye cancelled 21 dates of his 2016 Saint Pablo tour and launched a verbal attack and slated Beyoncé and Jay-Z while on stage in Sacramento.

“Kanye is over the moon as he has always considered Jay Z his ‘big brother,’ and Beyonce has always been one of his closest friends,” a source told The Sun.

“It’s only a matter of time before the play dates begin.”

Kim and Kanye are said to be delighted at the arrival of their healthy and beautiful baby girl.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star reveal the news on her app on Tuesday writing: “She’s here! We’re so in love.”

“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl.”

“We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care.”

If Beyoncé and Jay-Z's tumultuous marriage has been anything, it has most certainly been public.

Never has this been more apparent than through the new video for Jay-Z's song, 'Family Feud'.

Not only is the song partly about the up and downs of the couple's marriage (much like Beyoncé's Lemonade), but the video stars both the rapper's wife and their 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.

The 34 second teaser from his latest album 4:44 is rife with religious iconography. 

The father-of-three raps in a confessional, Queen Bey stands tall behind a pulpit, and adorable Blue Ivy walks through a church with her father.

The rest of the video features a star-studded cast: Brie Larson, new mum Mindy Kaling, Rosario Dawson, Constance Wu, and Rashida Jones, to name a few.

The myriad of talented women play the Founding Mothers of the United States, who revise the Constitution together.

While the video focuses heavily on Jay-Z's relationships (there is, of course, a reference to 'Becky'), the track is also an exploration of the black entertainment community.

The line 'Nobody wins when the family feuds' can most certainly apply to both his home life and the conflicts found within hip-hop culture. 

The full video is available on Tidal.

Earlier this week, James Corden announced he had become a father for the third time.

Taking to Twitter, he revealed that his wife, Julie, had given birth to a baby girl, but the British star chose not to disclose whether or not the couple had decided upon a name for the newborn yet.

And it seems this may have been because he knew the story behind it would make for a much better opening monologue, as he proved when he returned to the set of The Late Late Show this week.

"We still haven’t chosen a name for her yet,” James revealed. “After the baby was born, I was crying, my wife was crying her eyes out, the baby’s crying, and the doctor asked about a name."

"I don’t know why I said it, but I looked at the doctor and said, ‘We’re going to call her ‘Beyoncé’.’

To the sound of uproarious laughter, James confirmed that while his wife wasn't impressed by the joke, medical staff took the 39-year-old seriously and began filling out paperwork in relation to the child's arrival.

After realising a nurse was adding the name to his daughter's form, James told the audience: “I had to go over to her and say, ‘Excuse me, there is only one Beyoncé,’

Take a look at this….

Destiny's Child is completely iconic, and no one who existed in the 90s and 00s was immune from their catchy fire tunes. 

In fact, who could forget their breakout performance at The Point in the year 2000? If you weren't there, disposable camera in hand, were you even a fan?

Well, if you missed them then, you may be in with a chance to see them once more.

Thanks to the work of some very savvy online detectives, it seems that a reunion could be on the cards. 

OG fans of the band will remember original member LaTavia Robertson.

LaTavia had her Twitter followers in a tizzy after she posted a very cryptic message to the social media site.

The former band member eluded that she had a secret project in the works that she was unable to discuss publicly. 

Now you may say that this could be about anything, but there's more to the web of intrigue. 

Another former member, Michelle Williams, posted a snap of a stage costume she wore when Destiny's Child joined Beyonce on stage at the Supoerbowl in 2013.

Posting the snap to her Instagram story, along with the bee emoji, the singer said 'ya'll remember this performance outfit from the Superbowl?'

Obviously, this combined with LaTavia's tweet is starting to look more convincing, but it doesn't end there. 

Beyonce uploaded and then deleted this snap of herself wearing an ACDC t-shirt, where only the DC letters of the band name are visible.

Another original band member Letoya  Luckett also posted a throwback to her singing days.

LeToya performed alongside Bey in Girls Tyme, the pre-Destiny's Child, in the early 90s. 

Fans are speculating that after cancelling her Coachella performance this year, Beyonce wants to pull out all the stops for her rescheduled performance at Coachella 2018, and has called in Destiny's Child to make it the most legendary performance of all time. 

Could it all be a coincidence? 

We certainly hope not, because this is legit what we look like right now:

Instagram went into absolute meltdown yesterday when Ed Sheeran shared audio of his collaboration with Beyoncé.

Amassing more than 4,000,000 views on both Instagram and YouTube combined, Perfect has undoubtedly struck a chord with fans of the acclaimed artists.

According to BuzzFeed, the British star played the track for Queen Bey prior to the release of his latest album, and she immediately 'fell in love with it'.

Turns out she's not the only one as millions of social media fans have flocked to pay tribute to the duet.

"Literally cried as soon as I heard it," wrote one while another added: "Dream wedding playlist."

Take a listen to the full version below.

Up until the release of Lemonade last year, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, who tied the knot in 2008, were considered the golden couple of the music industry.

As well as being highly acclaimed artists in their own right with countless awards under their belts, it looked like Bey and Jay had also managed to sidestep something many A-list couples fall foul off – infidelity.

Until Becky with the good hair showed up, that is.

While it's been over a year since Beyoncé hinted that her husband had engaged in an extra-marital affair, interest among fans and critics hasn't waned, so it's no real surprise Jay-Z's latest interview with New York Times' T magazine has caused serious waves this week.

Commenting on the impact their personal life had on their approach to their work, Jay Z made it clear that Bey's lyrics had solid grounding in reality by acknowledgng that his behaviour and inner turmoil has led to discontent between the pair.

"You have to survive. So you go into survival mode, and when you go into survival mode, what happens? You shut down all emotions," he explained. 

"So, even with women, you gonna shut down emotionally, so you can't connect. … In my case, like, it's deep. And then all the things happen from there: infidelity."

Jay- Z went on to admit that the pair have had to deal with issues that might cause other couples to throw in the towel.

"You know, most people walk away, and, like, divorce rate is like 50 percent or something ’cause most people can’t see themselves. The hardest thing is seeing pain on someone’s face that you caused, and then have to deal with yourself," he said.

While some members of the industry seemed aghast that Bey and Jay decided to address their issues in their music, Jay Z feels it was the best move for them.

 "The best place in the hurricane is in the middle of it. The best place is right in the middle of the pain. And that's where we were sitting."

"And it was uncomfortable. And we had a lot of conversations. [I was] really proud of the music she made, and she was really proud of the art I released. And, you know, at the end of the day we really have a healthy respect for one another's craft. I think she's amazing.”

And as for having regrets over the route their marriage took? Jay Z is determined to find the positive in the negative.

"I grew so much from the experience," he insists. "But I think the most important thing I got is that everything is connected."

"Every emotion is connected and it comes from somewhere. And just being aware of it. Being aware of it in everyday life puts you at such a … you’re at such an advantage."

With 108 million followers, it'll come as no surprise to hear that Beyoncé had the most liked Instagram photo of the year.

The Crazy In Love singer's pregnancy announcement gathered up 11.18 million likes. Casual.

The public was pleasantly surprised when the mum-of-three revealed that she was expecting twins with her husband Jay-Z.

The extravagant photo stunned fans back in February.

We all remember where we were when she posted it, right?

Beyoncé rocked a long, green veil as she held her bump. She was surrounded by tonnes of flowers in the iconic photo that we still can’t get over, ten months later.

In true Beyoncé fashion, the Halo singer featured on the list not once, but twice. The stunning photo of the mum holding her two twins made the number four spot on the most liked photos list.

Beyoncé was in good company, with Selena Gomez and Ronaldo coming in at the second and third place.

We feel like champs when one of our selfies receives 50 likes, we can’t imagine how Beyoncé copes with all the notifications she gets on Instagram.

However, Queen B isn’t the most popular woman on Instagram. Selena Gomez is rockin' the queen of Instagram crown with 130 million followers.

She has been joined by chart-topper Ariana Grande, reality star Kim Kardashian and Bad Blood singer Taylor Swift who have 333 million followers among them.

Will posing amongst thousands of flowers help us gain more Instagram followers? If so, we’re off to the nearest florist to start planning a Queen B inspired photo shoot.

It's not often that Beyoncé misses the mark.

From secret album drops to iconic baby announcements, she pretty much slays at everything she ever does, and with some of the most loyal fans in the entertainment industry, the singer could sell just about anything she put her name on. 

However, it looks like not everyone is a fan of Queen Bey's latest piece of merchandise.

As part of her 'holiday' collection, the star has released one of the most underwhelming Christmas jumper we have ever laid our eyes on.

It's lackluster design features the words 'Beyoncé Holiday Sweater' etched across a jet-black jumper, in what looks like a child's handwriting.

Needless to say, infuriated fans have taken to Twitter to express their frustration, with some suggesting that Beyoncé simply didn't send enough time designing the garment.

The jumper sells online for $55 (€46), alongside other festive Beyoncé-themed products such as baubles, phone covers, wrapping paper and even baby grows!

The Lion King is the next up and coming Disney live-action to hit our screens, and though it won't be here until 2019, Disney have already revealed exactly who is on board to voice act in the new flick. 

One of the most exciting revelations is that Queen Bey herself is on hand to star in the flick.

Beyoncé has been confirmed to play Nala, while the divine Donald Glover will voice Simba.

As we reported a number of months ago, actors and comedians Seth Rogen and Billy Eichn have been enlisted to play iconic double act Timon and Pumbaa.

James Earl Jones, who originally voiced Mufasa in the 1994 classic, will return to take on the role once again. 

Chiwetel Ejiofo is stepping up to the role of Scar. 

The film is due for release in July 2019.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z stepped out in style last night, making their first public appearance since the birth of their new twins. 

Rumi and Sir arrived over two months ago, and the pair have been focusing on their family since. 

However, last night the couple joined a whole host of other stars at Rihanna‘s Clara Lionel Foundation Diamond Ball in New York City’s Cipriani Wall Street.

Beyoncé looked like a complete queen (obvs) in a plunging sea green silk gown with a thigh high split.

The superstar accessorised the look with black chunky heels and diamond drop earrings.

Meanwhile Jay-Z looked dapper AF in a black suit and bow tie.

Beyoncé also posed with long-term pal Rihanna on the night. 

The couple are pretty low key in terms of keeping their private lives to themselves, and in their usual fashion, left the event a little early via the venue's private back entrance.
