Beyoncé has a new business, as if her net worth is not enough. Bey is already worth $265 million, while Jay Z’s pecuniary worth is $610 million, according to Yahoo. And that, folks, is a whopping $875 mil already. So maybe the “Sorry” singer wants to round the figure off to a cool $1 billion.
Beyoncé is getting her own TV network, too, reports Al Arabiya Entertainment. But before you start thinking that she’ll be having her own talk show soon, like Ellen DeGeneres or Oprah Winfrey, you’re wrong. Doing that is likely to tie her down to a chair or a couch, and that won’t work for her — knowing the star’s mercurial lifestyle.
Also, for a singer, talking too much will preoccupy her vocal cords which are undoubtedly better left for singing. So really, outdoing Oprah or Ellen won’t fit the Beyoncé style. So you know what?
The superstar wants a big chunk of her own TV network “to focus on educational aspects, such as including documentaries on African and American history.”
Such a great idea, Beyoncé. Basically, you’re hitting not two but three birds with one stone. First, you’ll be making money from the business. Second, you’re leaving your legacy of education to the community. And third, you can have the freedom to bring the ideas of your closest creative friends to life.
However, the star is thinking about doing this ten years down the road. So the network thing isn’t going to just pop out before our eyes anytime soon. Right now, the source is happy to report that Beyoncé’s entertainment company, Parkwood, is doing extremely well. Quite the business woman, this Bey.
By the way, the Democratic National Convention (DNC) sorely missed Beyoncé. According to Huffington Post, newly minted Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton wanted so much to have the R&B diva to be a part of the show with Katy Perry. Unfortunately, Beyoncé is currently doing the Europe leg of her Formation concert tour. So it looks like there was no way for the star to fit the DNC big night into her work schedule.
You just have to trust Beyoncé — if there was a way, she would have done it already. People recently unleashed a torrent of beautiful pictures from Bey and her family’s trip to Paris. Just one of the highlights is a PDA moment with Jay Z in a hotel room overlooking the Eiffel Tower which stood out like a giant Chinese lantern in the background. The source would also inadvertently discover who has been taking all those wonderful selfies when Beyoncé’s hands are busy.
The power couple also brought their lovely daughter Blue Ivy with them, snapping a picture of mother and daughter having identical flower dresses. That was quite a treat for the star’s BeyHive. All the photos paint a picture of one happy, tightly knit family — one that manages to find time no matter how crazy their schedules get.
Yahoo will never be outdone, as it also peppers its Beyoncé story with beautiful selfies for all the diehard BeyHive members out there. Ironically, the “Halo” singer also wants the whole world to know that Jay Z is more than just her Instagram husband. For example, one selfie showing off Beyoncé’s finger bling is a testament to the fact that the singer can take her own selfies if she needs to.
In the olden days, when selfies and social media were yet to be invented, Beyoncé would have to show us voluminous albums to show off her family’s pictures taken during concert break periods in Europe. Well, not anymore and we’re all lucky for the digital age.
