Beyoncé and Blue Ivy Shopped for Easter at Target

Beyoncé and Blue Ivy Shopped for Easter at Target


Dreamstime

Beyoncé, a personal assistant, and her daughter Blue Ivy shopped at Target for Easter supplies in Los Angeles.

Stars, they’re just like us! Beyoncé took her daughter Blue Ivy on a Target run (along with a personal assistant, natch) to stock up on Easter supplies.

The Lemonade icon was spotted in Los Angeles loading her red cart to the brim with plastic Easter eggs and other Easter goodies. The mother of three was photographed by Target employees and customers who saw her roaming the aisles, hopefully putting together one heck of an Easter basket for 6-year-old Blue Ivy and her baby siblings Rumi and Sir.

Yoncé is back to shopping at Target after feuding with the chain for not stocking her album BEYONCÉ after its surprise drop. According to W Magazine, Target released a public statement apologizing for aligning with Amazon and not selling the record-breaking album. Knowles retaliated by giving out 750 Walmart gift cards worth $50 a piece to shoppers so they could buy the album. The singer remained exclusively a Walmart gal… until now.

Although we didn’t spot any Peeps or Easter chocolates in her cart, we can only assume that Easter celebrations at the Knowles-Carter household are filled with tasty treats and fun family Easter traditions.

Hopefully Bey will be picking up some eggs to dye a few days before. We just know her Easter egg dyeing would be world class.


Beyoncé and Blue Ivy Nailed The Lion King Theme at the Wearable Art Gala

There's only a month until Disney's live-action adaptation of The Lion King hits theaters, but Beyoncé gave us a sneak peek of what's to come at Saturday night's Wearable Art Gala.

The annual event — which is hosted by Bey's mom Tina Knowles-Lawson — had the movie as this year's theme, and Beyoncé alongside her daughter Blue Ivy went all out in the most regal of costumes. Fully embracing the spirit of her character in the film, Nala, the singer wore a Georges Hobeika-designed gold catsuit embroidered in sequins.

At the bodice, a lion's face is clearly illustrated with tan feathers projection out as the animal's mane.

Like the true Queen she is, Beyoncé completed her outfit with a gold cascading cape, which she offered a better view of while walking down a flight of stairs.

Meanwhile, Blue matched her mom's enthusiasm for the theme, and wore a yellow gown with a matching headdress while lip-synching to the tune of "The Circle of Life."

Before the big event, Knowles-Lawson spoke to the Los Angeles Times about the over-the-top outfits on the red carpet each year. "It can’t just be a dress with a little necklace. You’ve gotta really go there with it!" she exclaimed. "If you think of the Met Ball, some people have called this Met West."

Certainly, the occasion earned Beyoncé a new title: Lion Queen.

The $15 billion jet dilemma facing Boeing's CEO

Boeing Co CEO Dave Calhoun faces a multibillion-dollar dilemma over how to rebuild sales in its core airliner business that has sparked an internal debate and put the future of the largest U.S. exporter on the line, industry insiders say.

Mining rig maker Canaan argues against wholesale crackdown on bitcoin mining in China

A major Chinese maker of bitcoin mining machines argued against an indiscriminate crackdown on cryptocurrency mining in China, saying the business helps make better use of electricity and contributes to employment and the local economy. Zhang Nangeng, CEO of Nasdaq-listed Canaan Inc, told an earnings conference call that although cryptomining activities using fossil-fuel power hampers Beijing's green efforts, those powered by clean energy should be spared from the crackdown.

The $15 billion jet dilemma facing Boeing's CEO

Mining rig maker Canaan argues against wholesale crackdown on bitcoin mining in China

A major Chinese maker of bitcoin mining machines argued against an indiscriminate crackdown on cryptocurrency mining in China, saying the business helps make better use of electricity and contributes to employment and the local economy. Zhang Nangeng, CEO of Nasdaq-listed Canaan Inc, told an earnings conference call that although cryptomining activities using fossil-fuel power hampers Beijing's green efforts, those powered by clean energy should be spared from the crackdown.

Beyoncé and Blue Ivy Nailed The Lion King Theme at the Wearable Art Gala

There's only a month until Disney's live-action adaptation of The Lion King hits theaters, but Beyoncé gave us a sneak peek of what's to come at Saturday night's Wearable Art Gala.

The annual event — which is hosted by Bey's mom Tina Knowles-Lawson — had the movie as this year's theme, and Beyoncé alongside her daughter Blue Ivy went all out in the most regal of costumes. Fully embracing the spirit of her character in the film, Nala, the singer wore a Georges Hobeika-designed gold catsuit embroidered in sequins.

At the bodice, a lion's face is clearly illustrated with tan feathers projection out as the animal's mane.

Like the true Queen she is, Beyoncé completed her outfit with a gold cascading cape, which she offered a better view of while walking down a flight of stairs.

Meanwhile, Blue matched her mom's enthusiasm for the theme, and wore a yellow gown with a matching headdress while lip-synching to the tune of "The Circle of Life."

Before the big event, Knowles-Lawson spoke to the Los Angeles Times about the over-the-top outfits on the red carpet each year. "It can’t just be a dress with a little necklace. You’ve gotta really go there with it!" she exclaimed. "If you think of the Met Ball, some people have called this Met West."

Certainly, the occasion earned Beyoncé a new title: Lion Queen.
