After over 20 years in the entertainment business, singer and actress Beyoncé Knowles-Carter is ready to take a break from music and focus on her family. In a cover interview with VOGUE magazine, the mother-of-three opened up about her most recent project, Black Is King, what 2020 has taught her, and life with her family.

During their conversation, Vogue reporter Edward Enninful asked the Houston native about how her powerful visual album, Black Is King, came to be.

“It started out simple, in my backyard… then it just grew,” Beyoncé said. Before we knew it, we were shooting in Nigeria, Ghana, London, Los Angeles, Johannesburg, and KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, where we filmed with the women of the Himba tribe.

“It took an incredible group of creatives from all around the world, and so many of us were of African descent, telling a part of our own family’s story and its hidden history,” she continued.

“The Lion King” actress then devolved into her inspirations behind the film, her son Sir Carter.

After giving birth to her eldest child, Blue Ivy Carter, Beyoncé admits that something opened up inside her.

“From that point on, I truly understood my power, and motherhood has been my biggest inspiration. I was also deeply inspired by my trip to South Africa with my family,” Beyoncé stated.

“And, after having my son, Sir Carter, I felt it was important to uplift and praise our boys and to assure that they grow up with enough films, children’s books and music that promote emotional intelligence, self-value, and our rich history,” she continued. That’s why the film is dedicated to him.

With so many things happening for people around the world due to the current global pandemic, Beyoncé has used this time to assess the next chapter of her life, which is focusing on her joy, her family.

“I truly cherish this time with my family, and my new goal is to slow down and shed stressful things from my life. I came into the music industry at 15 years old and grew up with the world watching, and I have put out projects non- stop,” she said.

Beyoncé continued:

“I released Lemonade during the Formation World Tour, gave birth to twins, performed at Coachella, directed Homecoming, went on another world tour with Jay (Jay-Z), then Black Is King, all back to back. It’s been heavy and hectic. I’ve spent a lot of time focusing on building my legacy and representing my culture the best way I know-how. Now, I’ve decided to give myself permission to focus on my joy.”

Keyshia Cole’s Sister, Elite Noel, Says Her Fans Got Her “Thinkin’ She Need To Change Her New Appearance To Make A Hit”

Earlier this week, singer Keyshia Cole made a social media post about opening her gap and asked viewers their thoughts; well, her sister Elite Noel decided to weigh in on the issue.

Apparently, when asked if bringing Keyshia’s gap back would help her career, Elite said she laughed. The whole thing is what she calls “insane,” and she wants someone to tell her sister to leave her gap closed (it ain’t that deep).

She went on her IG page to say, all Keyshia has to do is “open up her heart!”

“She can bring the red hair back, she can sing all the old love/hate songs that was introduced to us in the beginning….it ain’t gone work! She gotta get back to the Original Plan with the people she started wit….and I ain’t even talking about me, apologize to the band members u sh***ed on, the assistants, the nannies, the background singers, the dancers, all of the family members u sh***ed on! God gone take u back to the top, cause the heart will be free at that point……! And most importantly….your Mother (Frankie and Yvonne) deserves apologies and respect as well! Oh and bring MANNY Back….major (key)”

Elite also made two other story posts in which she mentioned that you “cannot blackball your family out of spite and think things are gonna go right for you!” She said God doesn’t like that type of energy and said, “it’s showing that HE’S NOT PLEASED.”

But she didn’t just call out her sister; she also turned to her fans, saying that they are the “worst” because they are “so worried about us and my mom being embarrassing.” Then claimed they are the reason Keyshia is self-destructing.

“She’s crying out for help left to right….keyshia different, always been different, never had to try to fit in or do the most to get noticed again! Naturally beautiful, voice naturally unique….y’all got her thinkin she need to change her new appearance back to make a HIT……lol that’s ludicrous!!!!!”

Johnson & Johnson’s Single-Dose Vaccine Approved By FDA For Emergency Use

The Food and Drug Administration has finally approved Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use, making it the third available vaccine approved to fight against the pandemic.

According to CNBC News, the FDA’s authorization came on Friday and will kickstart the federal government’s plan to send out nearly 4 million of its vaccine doses across the nation to pharmacies and community health centers next week.

The company’s vaccine is different from the other two approved companies, Pfizer and Moderna, whose vaccines require two doses, and the vaccines can be stored for a longer period of time in refrigerator temperatures.

J&J’s vaccine “makes it operationally easier in lots of contexts,” Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told the Journal of the American Medical Association during an informative briefing on Friday. “I expect lots of considerations state health departments are having around these vaccines is more about the ease of use of the J&J vaccine and how it might be better suited for some populations.”

The company says first-round doses will be limited, but it expects to distribute 20 million doses by the end of next month, a plan confirmed by its VP of U.S. medical affairs, Dr. Richard Nettles.

The company made a deal with the U.S. government to supply 100 million doses of its vaccine by the end of June. U.S. officials are working with J&J to increase its supply as quickly as possible, CNBC reported.

Officials are concerned about new emerging variants of the virus, focusing on the B.1.351 strain, which has been shown to reduce vaccines’ effectiveness.

The company submitted its Covid vaccine data to the FDA earlier this month. Apparently, the vaccine’s level of protection varies by region, with the shot demonstrating 66% effectiveness overall. It proved 72% in the U.S., 66% in Latin America, and 57% in South Africa, where the B.1.351 variant is surging. However, FDA documents report the vaccine was 64% effective in South Africa after about a month.
