Beyoncé is definitely living the sweet life. The young superstar is to be honored with the prestigious Billboard Millennium Award at the Billboard Music Awards that will air on May 22nd.
Beyoncé will be honored with Billboard Millennium Award at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards, it was announced today (May 9). The iconic performer and international star will receive the honor at the May 22 show, which will air on ABC at 8-11pm ET/PT from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The Billboard Millennium Award will recognize Beyoncé’s career achievements and influence in the music industry, from her role as the frontwoman of Destiny’s Child to her three-chart-topping solo albums, which have collectively earned her 16 Grammy awards and ASCAP’s Pop Songwriter of the Year award. Previously, Billboard named Beyoncé its Woman of the Year in October 2009, and Top Female Artist of the Decade in December 2009.
Beyoncé’s Billboard Millennium Award will arrive just as the star puts the finishing touches on her fourth studio album, due out later this year. The album, whose debut single “Run the World (Girls)” premiered in April, will be her first since 2009’s “I Am…Sasha Fierce,” which sold 2.9 million copies, according to Nielsen Soundscan.
Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala 2011
Featuring “Savage Beauty: Alexander McQueen“
As many of us know, this years Metropolitan Gala paid tribute to the late designer impresario Alexander McQueen. As usual, the event is a sartorialist’s dream with fashion heavies and celebrities coming out in the season’s haute couture and custom gowns and tuxedos to turn the heads of their peers and the paparazzi.
We’ll showcase some of our favorites from the night and ask you who do you think was the best or worst dressed male and female.
Although her veritable star was born quite a while ago, the uber-talented and ubiquitous Miss Beyoncé Knowles-Carter will be starring in the remake of the classic “A Star Is Born”, directed by the amazing Clint Eastwood.
How exciting is that? Especially to have to follow in the footsteps of Judy Garland and Barbara Streisand! I’m really hoping this becomes a major accomplishment in her career. Kudos and we can’t wait to see the film!
All of the world has a great love for VOGUE Magazine: women, men, all races and religions, various social ranks and sexual orientations. This idolatry has catapulted VOGUE to astronomical heights and even to localized distribution to eighteen counties/regions. Vogue is now published in Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom and of course the United States (American Vogue).
It is the world’s fascination with American Vogue and our particular fascination with the lack of color on the COVERS of American Vogue which prompted this post.
I personally have been an avid reader of Vogue since middle school, when I decided I would become a clothing designer. Although my career aims have definitely changed, I still have a torrid affair with Vogue; one filled with love and hate. And sadness for the lack of diversity within its pages and especially the cover. This is one reason I actively pursued a career in fashion publication.
However, instead of harping about the lack of African-American and minority covers, we’re going to celebrate the achievements of said cover models. And hopefully ignite a fire of progression.
Enjoy! – Kenny Hibbler, Creative Director
And up next, Rihanna…
Here are some additional covers featuring women of color, mainly in group shots. And some much debated ‘vintage’ Vogue covers.
