Beyonce, Jay Z’s ‘Bang Bang’ Video From ‘On the Run’ Now Online

beyonc-jay-z

The video from Beyoncé and Jay Z’s “On the Run” tour is now available for everyone to see.

The first part of a short film produced for their road show, titled “Bang Bang, Part One” made its debut Monday. The rapper, 44, and pop star, 33, appear to mimic the notorious Bonnie & Clyde — complete with gun-slinging and 1930s style clothing — in the black-and-white short they created with director Dikayl Rimmasch.

“In my first conversation on the telephone with Jay Z he explained his concept of ‘On the Run,’” Rimmasch told culture website Nowness.

“He said: ‘We’re not trying to do this literally. It’s not that we’re Bonnie and Clyde. We’re on the run from everything. On the run from becoming a cliché. On the run from doing the same thing again.’ Everything he mentioned was a level of consciousness he has for staying alive as an entertainer and as a human being.”

Jay Z “wanted to keep it more abstract because for him it was very abstract,” Rimmasch said.

“How do you stay new, not just to your audience but also yourself?”

“Bang Bang,” which reportedly took two days to shoot, was featured throughout their summer tour. In the first clip Beyoncé appears as a lounge singer in 1930s garb, as her husband watches from the audience while smoking a cigar. The couple then go riding together in a vintage car on an open road, before they stop at a diner where it’s shown that they are “on the run” in a newspaper.

Nicki Minaj Covers Dazed; Isn’t Welcome at Old High School (Video)

nicki minaj,

Nicki Minaj graces the cover of Dazed Magazine with two looks. But even the magazine spread couldn’t prevent her from being upset she’s not welcomed at her former high school.

The current principal doesn’t think Minaj is influential enough to ever speak to students or visit at LaGuardia High School where she went to high school.

“I wanted to go back to my high school and speak to the students but the new principal declined. No need for me to inspire them, I guess. SMH,” she tweeted.

Minaj’s feelings SOUND hurt as she continued, “that school changed my life and I wanted to pay it forward to the students there now. I was really looking forward to it. I guess I’m not good enough.”

But she has something to be happy and excited about in place of LaGuardia High School. Her beautiful magazine cover covers the different sides of her big personality.

In the pic to the left, she channels a sophisticated fashion-forward woman — wearing a Coco Chanel-like pink blazer.  And in the pic to the right, she’s her usual sexy self — wearing green stiletto-heeled boots.

Jeff Bark shot the covers for the fall/winter issue while fashion director Robbie Spencer, styled the images. In the 18-page spread she talked about her fame and being hip hop’s leading lady.

This is the reason why the current principal of her former high school should be begging her to be a guest speaker. Maybe, her “Anaconda” music video made the principal nervous?! Nevertheless, the latest issue of Dazed Magazine came out on Thursday, Sept. 11, 2014.

Watch the behind-the-scenes to her shoot below:

 

Lil Kim x Revolt TV: Talks ‘Hard Core 2K14′ Mixtape

Via Revolt TV

On her latest record “Real Sick,” which features Jadakiss, Lil Kim makes it absolutely clear that she’s “married to the game” and that “we don’t do dates.” The notion is witty, but also quite clear considering the Queen Bee’s long-standing music career.

Hard Core 2K14, a nod to her classic 1996 debut Hard Core, will find Kim delivering her first full-length project in nearly half a decade. It also arrives just a two months after the femcee gave birth to her newborn daughter, Royal Reign. Balancing motherhood and music, Kim tells REVOLT that fans can expect “a little mixture of everything” on her new material, which is something she’s been proving on the string of freestyles released these last couple of weeks.

“I don’t feel the need to change up my style or change the things that I used to rap about,” she says. “I definitely have more to rap about.”  Besides the freestyles over tracks like Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot Ni—a” to Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” and even Rae Sremmurd’s “No Flex Zone,” Kim will prove just how much more material she has to say on Hard Core 2K14.

“I think motherhood has made me a better person a better artist and I think motherhood has just made me not give a f—k,” she revealed. “Everything I do is for [Royal Reign].”

As for specifics on the 12-track project, Kim says Hard Core 2K14 will “defintiely include original songs.” Among the many tracks will be the Jadakiss-featured “Real Sick” and “Trendsetter,” which happens to be one of Kim’s favorites.

“‘Trendsetter’ represents the evolved me,” she said, before adding, “Because that’s basically who I am.”

“I’ve been a trendsetter since I walked into this industry. It’s a great thing to have people follow me and want to dress like me and want to be like me, that’s the most rewarding thing about being in the industry.’”
