Beyonce forgot to wear undies on 3 of her ‘CR Fashion Book’ covers



Beyoncé is keeping the Beyhive busy. After announcing a new album and releasing two country songs, “Texas Hold ‘Em” and “16 Carriages,” she debuted Cécred, her hair care line, just a couple weeks later.

To promote these new launches, Queen Bey broke her self-imposed media silence with several magazine covers, including ESSENCE and CR Fashion Book. The latter included not one, but four different covers. In each shot, the singer completely transformed, donning various wigs and very few pants.

Her First Cover
On Thursday, Beyoncé graced multiple covers for CR Fashion Book’s Issue 24. And though she’s been in her country-era bag, consistently rocking cowboy hats and Western-inspired items as of late, she switched up her style for something a bit more grunge.

Photographed by Louise and Maria Thornfeldt, the “ALIEN SUPERSTAR” singer donned in a tattered white shirt spray-painted with lyrics to her song “Heated” — a custom design by Angel Bustamante.

She cinched the baggy tee with a black scoop-neck corset, which featured horns protruding from each breast. Save for the layered tops, Beyoncé wore nothing but black undies.

Perhaps more shocking than her ensemble was her wig; Beyoncé switched up her hair with each look in order to create “a symphony of hair styles inspired by iconic hair throughout history.” This time, she debuted an asymmetrical mullet with ombré hues — a perfect match for her punky ’fit.

“I always wanted an asymmetrical cut in the ’90s, but my mother wouldn’t let me do it. So I’m having the time of my life at this shoot,” she told CR.

Her Second Cover
The “Love On Top” singer switched vibes fully for her second spread. Aside from rocking waist-length strawberry curls, she also wore an off-the-shoulder top with a peplum-esque, champagne-colored taper. The deconstructed item — featuring inside-out seams and rough hems — was classic Margiela.

Keeping to the pantsless theme, she ditched bottoms once again. Instead, she showed off beige undies, adding to the monochromatic tan tones.

She accessorized with gauzy opera gloves that mimicked her choice of footwear: sheer pantyhose over pointed-toe pumps. The unexpected combo made a splash at Givenchy’s Spring/Summer 2024 show.

Her Third Cover
Two pantsless covers weren’t enough for Queen Bey. For her third layout, she wore a black T-shirt dress by Valentino that fully exposed her black panties. Forgoing her penchant for silver — a signature of her Renaissance World Tour — the singer wore metallic heels with delicate gold vines that spiraled up her legs. She coordinated her jewelry, wearing several statement bangles — also in gold.

Her Fourth Cover
Beyoncé’s final cover ’fit may have included bottoms (i.e., a denim maxi), but she wore them unzipped, pulled down to intentionally expose her plaid boxers. She went for denim on denim, pairing the skirt with a jean jacket from Calvin Klein and a white net top. It was a perfect tribute to ’90s hip-hop culture.

‘I’m On My Knees’, Davido Spotted Crying



Nigerian Afrobeat singer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has been spotted pleading on his knees while in tears.

In a viral video, the singer could be heard saying, “Please, I’m on my knees, oh my days, oh my days.”

This came after a photo of Davido in a cozy position with an American stylist, Courtney, surfaced on social media, stirring a range of reactions.

While being trolled by Nigerians, the model’s friend posted the now-deleted video of Davido pleading profusely on his knees.

Sharing the video, a friend of the American model, Bonita Maria captioned it, “This who y’all attacking me over? Leave me alone.”

The development has since sparked reactions from fans of the singer as many referenced the endless disrespect to his wife, Chioma.

@ASTHETE_gemin said: “Crying for a side chick when you have a whole wife and a mother to your twins?? God abeg.”

@MeetSumshineMay wrote: “Zero role model steeze. Zero morals, what then are these celebrities influencing? Weed? Pornography? Living above one’s means for validation? There has to be at least some virtue and morals being put out with one’s influence. Many people will excuse this and we know why.”

@Daniels∅2: “Davido has lost my respect, I’m ashamed. Wtf is this embarrassment.”

@daniels_osi: “I hope this doesn’t cause too much drama for Davido and Chioma. But then again, what’s life without a little bit of drama?”

@Ero_Dy: “This guy is a DISGRACE i feel sorry for Chioma.”

Meanwhile, Courtney, while addressing the backlashes trailing the post, revealed that she has been a client and friend of the singer for four years.

She also said she is also responsible for booking him shows in the U.S.

On the leaked photo, she said it was an accident when she was trying to make a post while drunk.

Regarding the viral video of the singer pleading, she refused to delve into it but admitted to having once shared it on a group chat that had two of her friends in it.

“…The video was dramatic. I’m not gonna speak on it. I won’t speak of the context or what it was all about,” she said.

Courtney appealed to all affected parties while insisting that the issue escalated because her friend, Bonita, fell to the temptation of trolling those who came for her.

“May we be surrounded by people with human sympathy in our helpless moment” – Alex Ekubo



* Shades colleagues as he mourns Junior Pope and others

By Francesca Hangeior

Nollywood actor, Alex Ekubo has written a heartfelt note to mourn his colleague, Junior Pope, and others who lost their lives in the Anam River boat mishap.

In a lengthy post on his Instagram page, he prayed that we be surrounded by people with wisdom and human sympathy in our helpless moments and not those who are more interested in creating content out of one’s situation.

The light-skinned actor further went on to question what the meaning of life is as he noted how one minute one is alive, another minute the person can be dead.

He revealed that the tragedy of the boat accident has left him in shock as he noted how the day of Junior Pope’s death coincidence with his birthday.

According to him, he hasn’t been able to attend any event or function properly since then as he can only imagine the unbearable pain and utter confusion of the families of the victims.

“What is the meaning of life?
One minute we are here, the next minute we are not.
The tragedy of the boat accident that happened days ago, still has me shocked to my bones.
While I was celebrating my birthday, others were fighting for their lives.

I haven’t been able to attend any event or function properly since then, as I can only imagine the unbearable pain & utter confusion the families of all those whose lives were lost are in.

It’s incomprehensible the amount of senseless & avoidable deaths we are faced with each day in this country.
More shocking & heartbreaking is the merry-go-round during a critical emergency, the sheer display of ignorance, nonchalance & high-level illiteracy.

May we be surrounded by people with wisdom, & human sympathy in our helpless moment, & not those more interested in creating content out of our situation.

Dear God, please accept the souls of Jnr Pope, Abigail Frederick, Precious Oforum, Joseph Anointing & any other, forgive them their sins & grant them eternal passage to heaven.

Please oh Lord, give their families divine strength to bear this irreplaceable loss.
If they’ve ever needed you, they need you now.

To those who survived this mishap, or are affected by it directly or indirectly & are dealing with the trauma, please God comfort them on every side.

To us all, let this be a reminder that life is fickle & but a fleeting mirage.

May we tread carefully & go through life knowing that none of us knows which day will be our last.

Yesterday it was #MohBad today is #JnrPope&Co tomorrow it can be anyone.
Death is final, Life is fragile.
What is the meaning of life?
One minute we are here, the next minute we are not”.
