Beyoncé Rides the Cyclone at Coney Island for New Music Video

Originally posted 08/30/2013 09:55AM

This time, it was Beyoncé – rather than her fans – who was doing all of the screaming.

The singer, 31, acted out the lyrics from her hit song "Single Ladies" and put her "hands up" Wednesday, taking a thrill ride on Coney Island's famed Cyclone for her new music video.

Sporting a cap featuring the image of the late rapper Notorious B.I.G., a white tank top, loads of bling and a big smile, the pop icon rode in the front car of the amusement park's iconic rollercoaster for the music video, which is being directed by fashion photographer Terry Richardson.

Katy Perry Closes the VMAs with a Knock-Out Performance Under the Brooklyn Bridge | Katy Perry

Katy Perry Closes the VMAs with a 'Roar' Under the Brooklyn Bridge

Originally posted 08/25/2013 11:30PM

Katy Perry didn't need fireworks to end the VMAs, instead she provided a knock-out.

The singer gave the first live performance of her new single "Roar" under the Brooklyn Bridge on Sunday night, on a stage set up like a boxing ring and decorated with a gold lion and a gold tiger head.

Sticking with the theme of her set, Perry dressed like a prizefighter with sparkling gloves, an animal-print sports bra, shorts with a flame print and gold lace-up boots. She even had an actor playing a trainer in her corner of the ring, who handed her a water bottle and offered her a bucket to spit in afterwards. She really showed off her jump-roping skills!

Will she be joined by beau (and duet partner) John Mayer on top of the Brooklyn bridge? Or will Brooklyn native Jay-Z guide her around his hometown from the Marcy Projects to Coney Island? Will she pay tribute to Notorious B.I.G. in Bedstuy? Or will she go all GIRLS on us and channel Lena Dunham in Greenpoint?

Beyoncé Skips the Limo, Rides a Bike to Her Concert in Brooklyn

Originally posted 08/06/2013 06:00PM

Who needs a limo? Apparently not Beyoncé.

The singer, who performed the last of three concerts at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Monday night, posted pics on Instagram showing how she got to work – by riding her bike a little over three miles from her Manhattan home across the iconic Brooklyn Bridge.

"I biked to Barclays for my last show in Brooklyn!" she wrote.

While her mode of transportation might have been a surprise, the 31-year-old had an even bigger treat in store for fans who attended the show on Monday – an appearance by her husband, Jay-Z, who walked onstage when she was in the middle of singing "Bow Down."
