Beyoncé’s 17 new music videos

Beyoncé’s fifth studio album dropped last night and like the rest of the world, we didn’t see it coming.

The self-titled record features 14 tracks and every single one of them has its very own music video ready and waiting. And she’s also thrown in a few extras, too.

In total 17 30-second previews have gone up on YouTube and we’ve trawled through the lot of them so you don’t have to.

Here’s our verdict…

Five worth a watch:


This is definitely a feel-good video and it also features a quick glimpse of Bey’s most closely-guarded secret, Blue Ivy. We’re not too sure how this is going to work but one-year-old Blue is also credited to the song so we’re hoping to get a better look at the pair of them in the full version.

Pretty Hurts

Bey has always been open about her body hang-ups and the message in this beauty pageant-themed video is bound to resonate with lots of young girls. On first impressions it’s reminiscent of Christina Aguilera’s Beautiful.


Bey’s in her undies, dancing, writhing and looking HAWT! if you look closely Jay Z’s also in there too. What’s not to love?!


This one looks like a few high-energy dance routines could come later which most of the other songs appear to be lacking. There’s topless male dancers but more of Drake please!!


The track doesn’t actually feature on the album but we’re pretty sure Beyoncé took a leaf out of Lady Gaga’s book for this one. It’s a stripped back, no frills jobby and Bey appears to be possessed. It’s definitely a bit weird and eccentric but we’re desperate to see what comes next.

Five you can skip:

Drunk In Love

If you’ve seen Rihanna’s Pour It Up – and you probably have – then you don’t need to watch.


This one doesn’t appear to be on the album, either, and there’s not enough Beyoncé. End of.

Grown Woman

We know all the words to this already, it’s a bit repetitive.

‘I’m a grown woman, I can do whatever I want…’ Got it!


Bey sounds as though she’s talking about her miscarried baby in this one. It’s moving and deep but not one to watch if you’re getting ready for the weekend.


Lots of sensual close-ups, black and white and a bit slow. A bit dull, really.

Beyonce’s ‘Grown Woman’ Video Leaks

Beyonce’s ‘Grown Woman’ Video Leaks
Earlier this year, Beyonce debuted her new track, “Grown Woman” during the launch of her Pepsi Now campaign, but to her fans’ disappointment there was no real radio push, nor did she create a visual for the track.

However, a video for the track is on the way and a teaser for the single has now surfaced. The tribal-themed video shows Queen Bey showing off her dance moves in ’80s video-like fashion. It’s safe to say we can expect a good amount of booty shaking for this one.

Foxy Brown says that Jay-Z chased trannies and gave her gonorrhea when she was just 15


Hot Dog!!!! Now you know DivaWhispers does not like MESS and that’s just what this is.  DivaWhispers has much respect for Jay Z, his wife Beyonce and Foxy Brown.  With that being said my girl Foxy has opened up a can of worms that I don’t think she will be ready to handle when it comes back to her.  Details inside……

Our friends over at TattleTailzz  are reporting that Foxy Brown (after a long hiatus) is starting some rumors about her mentor who jump started her career Jay-Z.

Foxy Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, has revealed that her ticket to rap success came at a price — and that it all happened while she was underage. She says the man who put her on to the rap game, Jay Z (then 27-years-old), took her virginity when she was just 15-years-old — adding Hova (who she says has a ‘horse d*ck’) funded her shopping trips and pampering at hair and nail salons while she was still in high school…all to get into her panties!

But that’s not all!!! Foxy claims Jay Z is an undercover tranny chaser. She says she learned that after a tranny began calling and harassing her, not long after Jay Z gave her gonorrhea. WTF?!?! Foxy says one of her sex sessions with Jay Z was all caught on tape. That’s when Foxy says she and Jay weren’t alone. Their company was the real “Wanda” from In Living Color…Mr. Jamie Foxx. According to Foxy, Jay Z signed her to “multiple gag orders for where she, Jamie and Jay engaged in a threesome” and that not long after the incident the tape was ironically robbed from her home. Foxy insists Jay Z had everything to do with that robbery.

Besides alleging that Jay Z chases tranny’s, Foxy says there was one constant man in Hova’s life. According to Foxy, Jay Z and Larry Johnson were ‘f*ck buddies.’ This doesn’t seem so far fetched given the fact that Jay once shared an apartment with the NBA baller who once repped Rocawear.

During her no holds barred account of her experience with Jay Z, Foxy was reported to clearly display a strong disliking for Jay’s wife, Beyonce.

Here’s what Foxy had to say about Mrs. Hova:

“Now he is with Beyonce…Fuck that halitosis-infected heffa.”

Now did you get all that? In no way does DivaWhispers believe any of this and this is for pure entertainment.  You make your own opinions on these whispers.  I’m thinking she’s stirring up the hype because she’s getting ready to come out with a single with Nicki Minaj or something like that.   Only time will tell.  SMH….

Gurpreet Kpakiwa, whose husband Komba died at the weekend while away with his lover, is said to be in shock

Gurpreet Kpakiwa, whose husband Komba died at the weekend while away with his lover, is said to be in shock

The widow of a man who drowned during a weekend away with his girlfriend is ‘in bits and struggling to work out what happened’, it was reported today.

Gurpreet Kpakiwa was said to be in shock after hearing that her husband, Komba Kpakiwa, 31, had been found dead in a hotel pool with his lover, Josephine Foday, 22, last weekend.

She is said to be finding it hard to cope and barely speaking to anyone following the death of her shop-keeper husband, by whom she has two young children.

Mr Kpakiwa and Miss Foday both drowned at the pool at Down Hall Country House Hotel in Hatfield Heath, Essex, on Saturday.

Mr Kpakiwa had taken Miss Foday, a nursing student, away for a surprise weekend break to celebrate her birthday on Friday. 

Today a family friend said that Mrs Kpakiwa was distraught.

He told the Evening Standard: ‘She is in bits and struggling to work out what happened to Komba on Saturday.

‘She’s in a bad way and is hardly talking to anyone.’

Meanwhile Mr Kpakiwa’s brother Sahr, who lives in Erith, Kent, said that Miss Foday was a family friend, and his brother had taken her away for a birthday weekend.

He said: ‘What I know about my brother is that he was a nice and loyal man and he was respectful of his family and always proud of them.’

He said his family did not yet know the circumstances surrounding the drownings, and said his mother was flying to England from her family home in Sierra Leone.

They had gone out for the day, before returning to the hotel room they were sharing and then going down to the pool, the inquest at Chelmsford Coroner’s Court heard yesterday.

A hotel guest saw the pair floating in the ten-metre indoor pool but presumed they were playing a game and went into the sauna, it was claimed last night. 


When the guest returned to the pool he saw they were face down in the water and dialled 999. The pair were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police are not treating the deaths as suspicious and preliminary post-mortem examinations found they had drowned.

Last night, Miss Foday’s grandmother, Theresa Farma, 61, said Mr Kpakiwa had surprised her granddaughter with the getaway to celebrate her birthday.

She said he had met her at the corner shop at the top of her road where he worked as a supervisor and they started seeing each other in February.

Speaking from her home in Plumstead, south-east London, Mrs Farma said: ‘She called me on Friday to say that she had arrived at the hotel. They were looking forward to spending time at the hotel.

‘They were supposed to come back on Sunday but instead the police came. Everyone is upset, distraught. I can’t believe she has gone.’

Miss Foday was a second year nursing student at Canterbury Christ Church University.

She fled to England with her grandmother from their native Sierra Leone in 2001 when both her parents disappeared in the country’s civil war.

Mrs Farma said: ‘We don’t know where her parents are, we think they are dead. I grabbed the child and left.

‘I am so sad, now my granddaughter has been taken away too.’

Abdul Conteh, a family friend, said a man saw the pair floating in the water, but thought they were just fooling around.

He said: ‘According to an eyewitness, he saw the couple in the pool, he went to the sauna and eight minutes later he came out and saw Komba’s face in the pool and Josephine was lying on his back.

‘He thought they were mucking around, a couples thing, he didn’t take any notice of them. But then he came back again and he saw the two of them going down and saw the man’s face was underneath the water, so he raised the alarm.’


Mr Kpakiwa, who was also from Sierra Leone, lived with wife Gurpreet, in Erith, Kent.

The couple, who had been married for four years had two children, a son, seven, and a daughter, six.

His cousin, Teresa Kpakiwa, 52, last night said she knew nothing of Miss Foday, adding: ‘This is so awful, they’ve got young children.’

Miss Foday had been living with a 23-year-old man in Chatham, Kent. It is not known what their relationship was. It is thought Mr Kpakiwa was studying for a law degree alongside his work in the corner shop.

Miss Foday had posted cryptic messages on Twitter before her death, including: ‘You have to accept not everyone is going to love you back, that’s why it’s most important to love yourself.’ She also wrote: ‘If you really knew me, you’d know that I will make myself miserable to make someone else happy.’

Debra Teasdale of Christ Church University said: ‘We were very saddened to hear about Josephin
