Beyonce

Rare footage of a 10-year-old Beyonce starting her music career has emerged

She's been known as the 'Queen B' for a very long time, but even before she was RnB royalty she slayed on stage.

Back in 2016, an American auction house announced that they had 11 never before seen tapes of a very young Beyonce rehearsing.

They now have accumulated 19 of these tapes and have released a teaser for potential buyers.

More raw footage featuring Beyoncé & Girl's Tyme has been released from the original video tapes which are being auctioned until the 13th of March 2018. pic.twitter.com/h70qwdZlo7

Lyrical Music is Olympic Figure Skating’s Greatest Psychological Hack

Elvers is reluctant to extrapolate from his results, but it's not hard to imagine how a similar situation might play out on the rink. Risk, in figure skating, means daring to try a triple axel, like Mirai Nagasu, or multiple quads, like Team USA's Nathan Chen did while skating to “Nemesis” by Benjamin Clementine during the men's short program last week. Someday, it may even mean attempting the near-impossible quintuple.

The decision to allow lyrical music in figure skating is likely a ploy to bring in more, and younger, viewers, the New York Times observed. As competitors continue to fill the Olympic rink with lyrical pop, it will be interesting to see how tastes among figure skating judges change.

At the very least, it will very likely be more fun for the skaters. They, too, are getting younger, and are probably not listening to Bizet all day. Perhaps Méité, who will likely not place in the women's singles competition but has already won the hearts of fans everywhere, put it best in her interview with Cosmopolitan, where she noted that Beyoncé's music is “crazy, wild and fun,” adding, “You can just dance to it.”

This Long-Lost Beyoncé Footage Is Up for Auction

The most interesting stories are usually about the humble beginnings of some of music's biggest icons, but we aren't always lucky enough to see it all captured on camera. Fader reports Ted Owen & Co, a London-based auction house, is selling a collection of video tapes with over two hours of professionally-shot footage from the earliest stages in superstar Beyoncé' Knowles' career. A total of 19 tapes are part of the collection, containing clips from performances, rehearsals, and early videos from 1992, when the singer would have been 10 years old and the leader of the group Girl's Tyme.

Previously shared footage from the collection can be seen up top, while more recent footage is available below.

The footage has been in storage for over 20 years and you can even catch glimpses of now-former Destiny's Child member LaTavia Roberson in the mix. Beyoncé previously used a short clip from her Girl's Tyme days in the video for "***Flawless," which opened with their live television performance and eventual loss on the 1990s talent competition, Star Search. The unreleased footage will contain plenty of live Girl's Tyme performances and even footage from the singer's first two music videos. Even then, her immense talent and future success was obvious.

Girl's Tyme would eventually morph into Destiny's Child, with members Roberson as well as Kelly Rowland and LeToya Luckett making the move from the original group to the quartet along with Bey. It seems surprising that this footage isn't already apart of Bey's massive personal archive, which she revealed in 2013 contains photos, videos, interviews, and even diary entries.

The bidding on this piece of music history has been open since 2016 and is expected to sell for millions.

The entire collection will be auctioned off on March 13, 2018 at 7 p.m. GMT.

Jordan Rock, brother of comedians Chris and Tony, making his own name in comedy and …

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the host of the Laugh Track column, a man who'll drink to that ... Mike McIntyre.

Thank you, Cleveland. In research that clearly was funded by my poker buddies, a University of California neurologist has found that drinking alcohol is better than exercise at keeping people in their 90s alive. And being slightly overweight is better than being skinny.

Now, all I have to do is make it to my 90s.

At the Improv: Jordan Rock says he feels like he wouldn't be true to himself if he hadn't pursued stand-up comedy. And for good reason. His older brothers, Chris and Tony, are successful comedians. Chris is often mentioned as one of the best ever.

"I'm the Solange of my family," he likes to say, referring ot Beyonce's less famous sister.

Jordan Rock is in his mid-20s, half Chris's age. He is his own comic with his own voice, working out his material in clubs and pursuing an acting career, too. He's got a recurring role in "Love" on Netflix.

Rock will be in Cleveland this weekend talking, no doubt, about his dating life, his tiny hands, his brothers and politics.

And he can take heart in this. Solange may be lesser known than Beyonce, but she's a certified star with a Grammy for 2016's "Cranes in the Sky" and just this week was named the Harvard Foundation's Artist of the Year.

Perhaps Jordan is on his way to the top, too.

Jordan Rock performs at 7:30 p.m. Thursday ($17), 7:30 and 10 p.m. Friday, 7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday, and 7 p.m. Sunday (all $20). The Improv is at 1148 Main Ave., next to Shooters on the west bank of Cleveland's Flats. Call 216-696-4677 or go to clevelandimprov.com.

At Hilarities: Chad Daniels talks a lot about his teenage son and young daughter in his act. It's material he knows well.

When his 11-year-old asked if her outfit matched -- orange pants, pink sweater -- he says in his 2017 special, "Footprints on the Moon," he wanted her to think for herself and told her they were on the same side of the color wheel.

She complained that her mom would know if it matches.

"Well, Mom's not here, is she? Dad is, and he doesn't know if it matches. So why don't you wear it to school and see what your friends think?" he said. "A very sad little girl got off the bus that afternoon."

Daniels performs at Hilarities at 8 p.m. Wednesday ($18) and Thursday ($23), 7:30 and 10 p.m. Friday ($25), and 7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday ($28). Hilarities is inside Pickwick & Frolic restaurant, 2035 East Fourth St., Cleveland. Call 216-241-7425 or go to pickwickandfrolic.com.

Jim Tews: Multitalented Jim Tews, the "Felines of New York" author who launched his comedy career at open-mic shows in Cleveland, headlines Hilarities Sunday night and will open for Daniels the other nights this week.

His stand-up is smart, sophisticated and sometimes silly. As for multitalented? He was a caricature artist at Dorney Park in Pennsylvania. He wrote for MTV. His "Felines of New York" book became a New York Times best-seller. He directed a feature-length documentary on Cleveland comedy called "Make Fun." And he's in a Weezer cover band called The Undone Sweaters.

Now, add accomplished animator to his list of talents.

Tews created and produced a sharp animated music video for Weezer's "Happy Hour." He spent his days working on it after Weezer's Rivers Cuomo asked for music-video suggestions on Twitter. Tews posted it on YouTube, and Cuomo liked it enough to share it on Twitter.

"I just did it on spec for my own purposes, and as usual I got in too deep and couldn't half-ass it," he said of the time commitment. The hard work shows, in the video and in his stand-up.

Tews headlines Hilarities at 7 p.m. Sunday ($18). Call 216-241-7425 or go to pickwickandfrolic.com.

Here's the music video for Weezer's "Happy Hour" that Jim Tews created.
