Beyonce Proves She's Still The Queen Of Music... In New Dubai Performance Photos

Beyonce most certainly lived up to her nickname, "Queen Bey," during her Dubai performance Saturday night ... and we got the pics to prove it.

Check out these new images, obtained by TMZ, showing Bey in a yellow sequined gown with a feathered cape -- which was fit for a queen!!! She was surrounded by dancers in large red dresses and a Middle Eastern orchestra.

Bey then changed into a gold body suit with a matching corset and long train. She also wore a red dress with a different corset, stockings and gloves.

Safe to say ... Bey brought the house down at the star-studded event ... Kendall Jenner, Liam Payne and Ronan Keating were just a few of the celebs on hand.

Everyone got to enjoy Bey's 90-minute set that included her biggest hits ... "Crazy In Love," "Naughty Girl", "Halo" and "XO." The show ended with a huge fireworks display.

As we reported, Bey hit the stage at Atlantis The Royal hotel in the United Arab Emirates after an almost 5-year hiatus. The singer was paid a whopping $24 million to be the centerpiece of the hotel's launch party. Recording devices were banned, but many in the packed crowd didn't follow the rules and leaked footage of the event on social media.

The concert was also a family affair ... Jay-Z was present along with Bey's parents, Tina and Mathew Knowles.

Bey/Jay's 11-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, and 5-year-old twins, Rumi and Sir were there as well. Ivy even jumped on stage to perform a duet with her mom, singing a song from the album, "The Lion King: The Gift."

Beyonce and Jay-Z Beach is Better With A Private Photog

Beyonce and Jay-Z are still in the midst of celebrating the singer's birthday ... squeezing in some time for a private photo shoot too.

The pair hit the beach on the Italian island of Sardinia Saturday for a boat tour followed by some cute couple pics shot by a private photog. It's no secret, Jay is crazy about his wife ... and the photo shoot proves it.

Beyonce turned 37 last week, and the pair has been in Italy celebrating -- seemingly sans kids -- ever since.

The singer posted a message Thursday recapping 36 and sharing her hopes for the year ahead, saying, "I became a new mother of 3. I breastfed twins. I renewed my vows with my husband of ten years. I came back home to the stage to do Coachella, after pregnancy. Then my husband and I released our album together, Everything Is Love."

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Beyonce, Jay-Z Fan Rushes Stage ... Subdued by Backup Dancers

A fan learned the hard way ... it may be fun to rush the stage during the concert of various musical acts, but when it's a Beyonce/Jay-Z concert it's serious business.

26-year-old Anthony Charles Thomas Maxwell caused a major panic Saturday night in Atlanta after racing to the stage and approaching Jay. Maxwell was being held on a $5,000 bond and has a court appearance scheduled for Monday morning.

Backup dancers chased the guy as he ran backstage.

Police came, detained Maxwell and wrote up a citation for disorderly conduct. He was not taken to jail ... just released.

Law enforcement sources tell us Maxwell made some sort of contact with Jay-Z, but we don't know how physical it got. Jay was not injured. As far as we know Maxwell never made contact with Beyonce.

Bey and Jay are in the middle of their "On the Run II Tour." Bey's rep says the incident will not impact or delay future shows, but security may be a little tighter in the future.

Barack and Michelle At Bey and Jay Concert We Got Moves!!!


Barack and Michelle Obama were feelin' it Saturday night in Landover, Maryland ... standing up and showing some moves!

The former Prez and First Lady were in a box at the FedExField, where the Redskins play. They weren't really noticed at first, but that didn't last long. Bey and Jay had some serious competition, because when the crowd saw the Obamas the cellphones came out in impressive numbers.

Beyonce and Jay just returned from their Italian vacation with their kids.

So, who are the bigger stars?

Beyonce Twins Are Alright ... Real Smiley Too

Everything's coming up smiles for Beyonce and her 1-year-old babies.

Bey gave the world a really good look at the twins, Sir and Rumi, with a super happy pic. Jay-Z and Beyonce kicked off the U.S. leg of their On the Run II Tour in Cleveland Wednesday night, but based on what they're wearing ... this looks like a shot from their mega yacht last week.

The twins, who turned one last month, don't get nearly as much camera time as their big sis, Blue Ivy ... but, Mom obviously wanted to let 'em have their shine.

The kids did NOT disappoint.

Jay-Z & Beyonce Twins Already Have Their Sea Legs

For Jay-Z and Beyonce ... the best kinda family time is maritime, and even their 1-year-old twins are already soaking up the luxury yacht lifestyle in Italy.

The Carter clan anchored off the Amalfi Coast Friday. All their kiddos were there too ... Blue Ivy and Sir and Rumi, who mom and dad took turns juggling on deck of the huge ship.

Bey and Jay got in some QT by themselves too ... chilling on a smaller vessel that took them to and from shore, while Beyonce snapped some pics.

Whatever floats their boat.

Beyonce Get Me Off This Thing!!! Rescued from Busted Stage

How many stagehands does it take to rescue Beyonce from a malfunctioning stage in Poland?

We're gonna guess ... ALL of them, if they wanna keep their jobs -- but, yes, Bey and Jay-Z's On the Run II crew had to help her make a safe exit Sunday night in Warsaw.

The couple's floating stage got jammed in the up position at the end of the show, making it impossible for Beyonce to pull off a quick and graceful exit. Instead, they brought out a ladder to help her get down what looks like a good 10-15 feet.

She didn't seem exactly convinced it was safe. Can't really blame her, especially because she was descending while rocking thigh-high boots!

Watch ... Bey was saved, the crowd cheered ... and everyone kept their jobs.

Jay-Z, Kanye West Plan Summit to Bury Hatchet In Latest Feud

Kanye West and Jay-Z will be meeting face-to-face soon to squash their latest beef, and if they smoke the peace pipe it will end a lawsuit that looms over their multi-million dollar Tidal dispute.

Sources close to Yeezy and Hova with direct knowledge of the situation tell us, their lawyers have been trying to settle a $3.5 million dispute Kanye has with Tidal. As we reported, Kanye had fired off a letter to Tidal stating his contract with them was over because Tidal didn't live up to his end of the bargain. Specifically, Kanye says he didn't get advances and bonuses that totaled $3.5 mil.

We're told Kanye and Jay have not agreed to settle, and the reason became apparent to everyone. The impasse had nothing to do with their business dispute -- $3.5 mil is peanuts to both of them. They couldn't settle because they each harbor animosity toward the other.

Jay was enraged when Kanye attacked Beyonce at his concert last Fall. Kanye felt Jay should have cut him a break because that was the time he was melting down and just a few weeks after the concert, he was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold.

As one source put it, "The Generals [Kanye and Jay] have to meet face-to-face. When that happens, the resolving the money dispute is a piece of cake."

We're told Kanye is up for the meeting and Jay is also inclined to meet. It shouldn't be hard. Now that Jay and Bey live in a Bel-Air mansion, they are literally down the street from Kanye and Kim.

We're told the meeting should go down soon, and once it does their Tidal dispute will quickly end.

Jay-Z First Time Out in L.A. Since Twins' Birth ... Good Sign for Recovery?

Jay-Z is out and about in L.A. and smiling like the proud new dad he is ... which could mean there's good news where Beyonce and the twins are concerned.

Jay was in West Hollywood Monday morning -- the first time he's been spotted away from the hospital since Bey gave birth almost a week ago. TMZ broke the story ... the newborn boy and girl have remained in the hospital due to a "minor issue."

Unclear what Jay-Z was doing, but he was leaving a complex that has a SoulCycle ... and we know he's been known to get his SC on from time to time.

We're told he's been at the hospital with Bey and the twins nearly round the clock, and was seen arriving there early Monday morning.

He didn't have much to say to photogs outside SoulCycle, but we're hoping the smile said it all.


Beyonce Birth Twins Still in the Hospital with 'Minor Issue'

Beyonce has given birth to a boy and a girl, but an issue surfaced that has kept them in the hospital for nearly a week ... TMZ has confirmed.

Sources connected with the family tell us the twins were born Tuesday in a Los Angeles hospital. We're told a "minor issue" surfaced, and as a result ... doctors do not feel comfortable releasing them.

We do not know the nature of the issue.

One source told us Beyonce also remains at the hospital, but as far as we know she's okay. The babies are expected to be okay as well.

It's unclear when everyone will be released.

Beyonce I'm REALLY Pregnant ... Let There Be No Doubt

Beyonce's letting her belly do the talking this time around.

She took a ton of shots showing off the twins growing inside of her ... some topless, some underwater, some with Blue Ivy. You gotta remember all the rumors when she was pregnant the first time -- conspiracy theorists insisted a surrogate did all they heavy lifting.

Well, these pics should shut those people up, quick.

Jay Z Plays Peacemaker ... Stay Away From Bey!


Jay Z took his "peace" t-shirt very literally Monday in Manhattan ... shedding his bodyguard's protection to go all Gandhi and squash some beef that was bubbling up way too close to Beyonce.

Jay and Bey were walking out of a building when one of their long-time bodyguards swiped at a pap to move him back. Some back and forth barking started, and that's when Jay sprung into Zen action.

You gotta see how he calmly diffused the situation ... allowing Bey to slip by unscathed.

West coast living is definitely getting to the kid from Brooklyn.

Solange Knowles It's Hard to Fight Jay Z in That Dress

It would be tough to punch and kick your brother-in-law when you're wearing ... whatever the hell Solange Knowles wore Monday night to the Met Gala.

Hard to believe -- but it's been a year since Beyonce's sister famously went ballistic and attacked Jay Z in an elevator ... during an after party for last year's gala.

MAY 2014

Meanwhile, Bey stole the whole damn night when she showed up in a ridiculous sheer nude-colored dress.

Damned if she was gonna let Solange steal the headlines this year.

Jay Z Can I Go Home Yet?


Nobody was feeling Jay Z's after party in Las Vegas the way he was -- and that's a good thing ... 'cause from the looks of It Jay just wanted to be somewhere else.

Jay Z hosted, undoubtedly, the most exclusive Mayweather-Pacquiao bash at Marquee Nightclub Saturday night ... VIP tables went for $50k.

He and Beyoncé held court at their own table right on the dance floor -- but while the DJ was trying to get the crowd going, Jigga seemed to be dreaming ... of laying his head on his pillow.

Of course, his pillow was probably on a G6 ... WITH Bey ... so, can't blame the guy.

Tina Knowles Wedding Day #2!!!

Tina Knowles is getting hitched for the second time, this time on a fancy yacht ... with Beyonce and Jay Z on board!


Beyonce's 61-year-old mom is marrying 67-year-old actor Richard Lawson on Sunday evening -- and the yacht is cruising around the harbor in Newport Beach, CA.

Everyone is dressed in white, including Blue Ivy. Solange was also there along with other relatives. The boat holds 300, and we're guessing they could fill it to capacity if they want.


Tina and Beyonce showed up around noon to check out the boat. They left together in an SUV before returning for the ceremony.


Beyonce & Jay Z Ride or Die ... In Bed of a Pickup!!

Surfboards, pineapples, giant bags of weed ... and Jay Z and Beyonce -- all things you typically find in the back of a pickup truck tooling around Hawaii.

The Carters are on one of the islands for what's supposed to be a secret getaway, but there's NOTHING inconspicuous about two of the world's most popular entertainers riding in the bed of a pickup, right? By the way, it's totally legal in Hawaii.

Jay spotted the photog riding behind the truck ... and threw up a "Hang Loose."

Maybachs look way different in the islands.
