Queen of the BeyHive: Beyonce Launches Blog

Picture 19Today, Beyonce launched her lifestyle blog, The BeyHive Blog, adding to the superstar’s tech takeover, with her eponymous website, her sleek Tumblr and her sometimes politically loose-mouthed Instagram.

Fresh off her scintillatingly sung, er, reportedly lipsynched, rendition of the Star Spangled Banner during Monday’s Presidential Inauguration, her Sasha-Fierce-ified GQ February cover and her upcoming performance at the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show, the Second Lady took a digital breath to share something special with her fans: a weekly digital glimpse into the mind of Bey.

In a letter on her website today, Beyonce wrote:

“The BeyHive Blog is my way of showing all the inspiring things I come across every single day. This is through my eyes.” She also writes that she’ll be featuring fan art on the blog:

“So many of you are making videos, painting—I want to show the world what you do and how much I appreciate you.”

Inside her perfectly-tressed noggin this week? A Rebecca Solnit tome, Oscar-buzzed films Argo and Beasts of the Southern Wild, Christopher Marley beetle-mosaic art, a psychedelic pop duo, Oliver Clegg paintings …

Oh, and shoes.

The blog requires setting up a free account, upon which fans can fully access the Bey-spiration: her picks for inspiring people, streetstyle snaps and maybe, just maybe that macaroni-bedazzled-portrait you’ve always wanted to send her.

Bey’s blog arrives post-Goop (by a certain blond pal fond of naming her kids after biblical tropes) and also features the same glossy, hyper-curated style of a certain lifestyle website by a Mr. Beyonce Knowles (a.k.a. Jay-Z).

Not that we would expect anything less from the multifaceted Bey, the only downside is the weekly release date.

Whatevs. We’ll be waiting with Bey-ted breath.
