Queen Bey is at it again. But this time, instead of secretly dropping an album, she debuted a nail wrap collaboration with NCLA. Four different designs to be exact.

Beyoncé is no stranger to the world of nail art (did you see her 2013 Super Bowl nails?), but this is the first time she’s stepped onto the production side, and so far, I like what I see.

Her debut line consists of recognizable patterns inspired by her work and style. Je Ne Sais Quoi hints at neon signs from the “Blow” video. No Rest in the Kingdom pays homage to the Tom Ford bodysuit she wore to receive her MTV Video Vanguard Award. I Come with a Side of Trouble has the entire track listing of her latest album doodled all over it, and the appropriately named I Woke Up Like This is a plaid pattern, reminiscent of the shirt she wears in her “***Flawless” video.

The verdict is in. After seeing this royal collab in all its glory, I’m telling the rest of my nail polish, “To the left, to the left.”

Beyoncé and Jay Z have been subjected to the rumor mill quite often lately. Are they pregnant? Divorcing? According to Dash Radio host DJ Skee, the power couple is working on a joint album to be released later this year or early next. No word on the record’s title yet, but fingers crossed that Blue Ivy will be featured on another track with her mom (and this time her dad, too).

An entire album of “Bonnie and Clyde” proportions? Yep, you’re not the only one trying to stay calm.

The magazine world is really delivering this September. A star roster of supermodels covers Vogue, Rihanna looks wild on W, and now Beyoncé is dropping jaws with her CR Fashion Book spotlight. The glossy’s fifth issue comes out on September 4 – Queen Bey’s birthday, obviously – with a high-fashion spread devoted to the culture-dominating idol. And yes, it even includes a very chic Chanel surfboard. Excuse me, surfbort.

The front cover teases with a sequined mask covering Beyoncé’s face. On the opposite side she appears in all her glory, wearing a voluminous floral Yohji Yamamoto garment. Inside, the Carine Roitfeld–led magazine opted for a prose poem, written by the singer, instead of an article. The rest of the spread, shot by Pierre Debusschere, displays looks from Comme des Garçons, CÉLINE, and Saint Laurent.

Last month, critics debated whether or not Mrs. Carter is a fashion icon. I’m pretty sure this feature puts those questions to rest.

One more reason to get hyped for summer? Mr. and Mrs. Carter’s recently dropped trailer for their upcoming On the Run Tour. The almost-four-minute-long action-movie spoof features Bonnie-and-Clyde-esque scenes with cameos from Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Emmy Rossum, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively, Rashida Jones, and others.

If you haven’t seen it yet, get on it. And if you have, you know what to expect: goosebumps, followed by a frantic Google search for tickets. (It’s that good.)

This year, the Met Gala dress code called for sweeping ball gowns and full “white tie” attire. And while many stars missed the mark, a select few hit home runs.

This past weekend, Saturday Night Live poked fun at the world’s (totally legitimate) Beyoncé obsession with a skit starring Andrew Garfield. In it, the actor “turns against his country” by uttering the unthinkable: “I’m not a huge fan of that ‘Drunk in Love’ song.” Enter: the Beygency, SNL's Matrix-esque crew dedicated to taking out Beyoncé dissenters with “Single Ladies” dance moves.

If you haven’t seen it yet, do yourself a favor and press play. And let this be a warning to all Bey haters (if they even exist): The Beygency just might be headed your way.

Yes, the undisputed King and Queen of the Music World – or just the world in general – are rumored to be going on tour together this summer. While the duo hasn’t confirmed anything just yet, sources tell Page Six that Bey and Jay will perform at 20 stadiums beginning in late June. There have even been whispers about a July 4 concert in NYC. (Fireworks and this “Crazy in Love” couple? Count me in.)

If their latest Grammy Awards performance was any indication, this show is sure to be one for the books. Clear your summer schedules accordingly.

We all know she can sing about female empowerment. Now? Beyoncé’s proven she can write about it, too. In The Shriver Report, she writes, “We need to stop buying into the myth about gender equality. It isn’t a reality yet… Equality will be achieved when men and women are granted equal pay and equal respect.” Preach, Queen Bey, preach. We have a feeling someone just might listen to her.
