WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS EXPLICIT LANGUAGE
Is a video concept even necessary when two major pop divas – Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj – are the featured acts? Apparently not. For the video for Nicki Minaj’s “Feeling Myself” featuring Queen Bey, released Monday exclusively on their Tidal streaming service, the ladies appear to have been tasked to simply show up and look beautiful.
Filmed during the Coachella Music Festival, Minaj and Mrs. Carter beat the desert heat in beach attire while twerking and lounging on inflatable swimming pools. Elsewhere they party in front of the Coachella city limits sign, snack on hamburgers, playfully toss French fries into each other’s mouths, and even share Now and Later candy.
The song appears on Minaj’s The Pinkprint and follows their other joint effort, Beyoncé’s “Flawless (Remix)” released last summer.

If fans of the Fox TV show Empire Google the words “Empire cancelled,” they’ll be met with a bunch of results from Tumblr pages and other websites claiming the show had been cancelled even after being renewed for a second season. As reported by the Inquisitr, ratings for Empire went through the roof during its first season and finale, and the #BeOnEmpire contest promised a walk-on role in the second season to the winner selected by the powers that be.
Therefore, it would seem an odd move that the runaway success be cancelled now, even if Fox has sued to retain the ‘Empire‘ name, according to the Hollywood Reporter, after receiving demands for the show to pony up $5 million and hire various musical stars to perform on Empire.
Turns the rumors of Empire‘s cancellations were attributable to a fake website, the same one who has claimed lately that Krispy Kreme was giving away free donuts, that a woman’s lips exploded after doing the Kylie Jenner challenge, and falsely stated that Martin Lawrence had been found dead in a hotel.
The fake article claiming that Fox’s hit show had been cancelled gained plenty of social media buzz, and sent Empire fans to the official Fox Facebook page looking for answers. In it, the writer claimed that a Fox PR rep named “Charles McRae” pegged the show’s cancellation on contractual negotiations, claiming the producers’ salaries had something to do with the cancellation — resulting in Fox pulling the plug on Empire.
Fortunately for Empire fans, all of that is untrue. The Empire Instagram account asked as recently as April 13 if fans were ready for Season 2. The Empire on Fox Twitter page is alive and well as well, retweeting tweets from their stars, and even features manicure Mondays or other fare from the show’s fans who are eagerly awaiting the non-cancelled second season of their new favorite show.

Music lovers are finally getting a chance to hear what Chris Brown would have contributed to Beyoncé’s album.
Breezy almost made it onto the re-release of Beyoncé’s self-titled studio project! Almost. He assisted on a remix of her track “Jealous,” but the song never made the final cut. No one even knew it existed until now. The song just made its way onto the Web, and Chris is sounding a bit insecure in his bars.
“Queen Bey, I’m trippin’ ’cause I’m a little insecure when your phone go off,” he sings. “So mad I’m drunk texting / Now I’m reminiscing how we fell in love in Texas / Girl, I’m jealous.”
