What is it about hair-o-graphy that elevates dancing to the next level?
Just watching these airborne braids from the heads of young performers give me whiplash.
At seven-years-old, Beyoncé's daughter Blue Ivy Carter is growing up way too fast, and her whipping hair-o-graphy is a sight to behold.
It's not just about the visual. It's a mark of a prodigious performer waiting for her curtain to rise.
Bey's new documentary Homecoming, ready for streaming on April 17, is about to become the fans' latest Netflix obsession.
A teaser dropped in which the talented scion holds court and shows her mom's backup dancers how its done.

But what has fans excited about the doc is this scene here:

Homecoming documents BeyHive's preparation leading up to her headlining performance at the Coachella in 2018. It is considered historic because Beyoncé, 37, was the first solo black female artist to lead the festival based in California.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go get some ice for my neck from watching all the whipping GIFs.
Diana Ross recently turned 75, so of course she had many people "Stop in the Name of Love" and celebrate with her.
Who did Ross have serenade her with "Happy Birthday"?
Why, none other than Beyoncé, of course!
Of course they partied together.
When you bring two icons into the same room, what do you think is going to happen?
Fans ate it up, of course.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Ross' daughter, actress Tracee Ellis Ross, asked Beyoncé to do the honors once she realized she was still around.
We should all be so lucky.
When you're one of the biggest stars in the world, you celebrate your birthday in style.
Michael B. Jordan not only celebrated stylishly, but with the company of Queen Bey and Jay-Z.
The 32-year-old actor had a massive shindig at Delilah in West Hollywood last Friday.
The videos of the event were shared to an Instagram Story by Jordan's friend Terrance J.
The videos were saved and re-shared by fan accounts.
Use the arrow on the left of the below Instagram post to scroll through the videos.
The party's guest list was a star studded affair with big names like Drake, Zendaya and Amber Rose.
But it was Beyoncé and Jay-z who stole the night.
Bey was decked out in a stunning white jacket and skirt, accessorized with stylish glasses.
She was serving some looks.

However we have to remember it was Jordan's big night.
The star is having a stellar year.
And as an anime fan himself, Jordan has got to be excited to voice a character in the anime-like series gen:LOCK.
Let's wish the star a happy birthday!

Jordan has been fending off rumors he's been tapped to play Superman since Henry Cavill stepped down from the role.
He claims he has not, but would love to play Calvin Ellis, an alternate version of Superman who is also the President of the United States.
A heroic character might be good for the actor, as he recently revealed he had to go to therapy after portraying Erik Killmonger in 2018's Black Panther.
Cooking a really great meal doesn't have to be complicated. Sure, binge-watching Chopped has us all convinced we need vaccuum sealers, ice cream machines and an anti-griddle, but some of the best recipes in the world are actually just a few really good ingredients put together simply. Like guacamole! Yeah, you can get fancy on it but a classic recipe really only calls for avocado, tomato, onion, salt and lime juice. It's so simple that it's almost impossible to screw it up.
One of the biggest downfalls of simple foods is how easy it can be to screw it up. Imagine picking up sugar instead of salt for that guac recipe. Now you've got an onion and avocado dessert paste that nobody wants. My mom has salted her coffee and sugared her eggs more times than I can count. And as a Puerto Rican, I can assure you messing up the rice might as well be the end of any meal. It won't matter how good anything else is.
One reddit user asked:
Screwing up the rice was one of the first answers - so I feel pretty culinarily vindicated right now. Here's that answer, along with quite a few other kitchen horror stories. Long story short: check your labels, check your heat, read the directions and try to stay at least KIND OF sober. Cooking usually involves knives and fires, after all.
We all want to be Beyonce. The beauty and tragedy of our world is that only Beyonce can ever really be Beyonce, but that doesn't stop the rest of us from dreaming. The Queen B recently appeared on the cover of Vogue, modeling a flower crown in a way that made us all realize we should have been wearing flower crowns this whole time.
Inspired, comedian/actress/writer/Twitter pro Mindy Kaling decided to recreate the picture with the caption "Pad Thai, Vogue Edition."
