Beyoncé made the crowd gasp when she stepped onto the red carpet at the New York screening of her self-titled visual album in an eye-popping, body-hugging, black mosaic Tom Ford dress with matching boots from the designer’s Spring 2014 collection. Perfection!
Trading in her blonde wavy hair, the iconic diva went with long, silky smooth tresses that completed her sleek look, as she strutted inside the SVA Theatre in New York City. Inside, she held a special Q&A segment, answering five questions asked by her diehard 'Stans' via Instagram, but not before she introduced her project with these words:
"This is a project that I didn’t think was possible actually. I’ve never done anything so brave in my life and the amount of personal growth from this project is unlike anything that I’ve ever done. I took all of my insecurities, all of my doubts, all of my fears, and everything I’ve learned over the last 17 years and applied it to this project. It’s interesting how motherhood changes you, and it changes your perspective on life and I took all the things that I wanted to change about myself, and all the things I wanted to share and I put it in this record. And I’m proud of it. More than the music, I’m proud of myself. The biggest message is owning your imperfections, and all the things that make you interesting because I refuse to allow someone to put me in anybody’s box."
The Queen of The Beyhive's fifth album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts this week after it was released without the public knowing. "Beyonce" sold 617,000 units in the U.S. in a week; it has sold more than 1 million albums worldwide.
