Beyonce Knowles-Carter has lived behind a veil since her career started as front woman of Destiny's Child many moons ago. It's a veil that has protected her in many ways - offering little critiques from the media outside of stories they've concocted, coupled with providing this enigmatic charm that's a total contrast to the soul-baring music she offers. In her new HBO documentary titled Life Is But a Dream, the veil is lifted. We're meeting Beyonce again...for the very first time.
We watched; why didn't you?!

The 55th Annual Grammy Awards kicked off and closed Sunday night with some major moments in between, both good and bad, that you may have missed with a trip to the bathroom, or even the blink of an eye.
What to expect when you're expecting...the Grammys.

The "Urban" music world (primarily hip-hop) has a tumultuous relationship with the Grammys. Why you ask? Because it took so long to even be recognized as a viable genre by the Academy. The first time Rap set foot on Grammy soil happened back in 1989 at the 31st Annual Grammy Awards, when DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince took home the Grammy for Best Rap Performance for "Parents Just Don't Understand." Since then, it's been a continuous back and forth of what gets televised and what doesn't, who gets honored and who doesn't. This year, there's something of a selection to feast your eyes on. You might be pleased...and you also might be annoyed.

In case you missed it...

If you somehow managed to miss the media storm that's been following Beyonce's every move for the last few weeks -- her performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at President Obama's inauguration (and the subsequent lip-synching allegations); Destiny's Child's comeback, marked by the release of their single "Nuclear"; her upcoming HBO documentary -- you should have at least been aware that she performed at the Super Bowl XLVII Halftime show yesterday. If not, here's what you missed.
Spoiler alert: It's an insect.

Lil Wayne revealed the cover art for his tenth solo studio album, I Am Not a Human Being II, this week. The artwork was provided by DONDA, the arthouse founded by none other than Kanye West. At first glance, the cover art just looks like a creepy X-ray of a butterfly, but boy are you wrong if you that's what you think it symbolizes...
She's already caught some eye stateside

The BBC has already placed her on their prestigious "Sound of 2013"list (alongside the likes of Aluna George), so let's play catch-up.

We've been hearing about this 50 Cent comeback thing for a while now. As Fif has become something of a film fixture, entrepreneur, ex-boyfriend of Chelsea Handler, and everything in between, the proverbial "comeback" is still up in the air. Sure, we had his digital album 5 (Murder By Numbers) drop this past Summer along with pockets of silly beefs with less than worthy rappers, but where's the triumphant return? Maybe it's finally here.
We're not so convinced

When we first introduced you to Leah Labelle last year, she'd just signed a joint deal between LA Reid‘s Epic Records, Jermaine Dupri‘s So So Def Recordings and Pharrell‘s new label, I Am Other. In other words, there seemed to be some pretty high expectations of what she could achieve.
