NEW YORK - With 16 Grammys, millions of records sold, several defining hits and a superstar husband, Beyoncé has nothing to prove. But sometimes even queens need to show what it means to be royalty. And on Sunday night, Beyoncé arrived at the Roseland Ballroom to give fans and critics alike a reminder that she remains the head diva in the music world. She made her case to a select group of fans one rump-shaking move at a time. "This show is going to be a little different," Beyoncé told the standing-room crowd at the show's outset.

A number of bloggers and media wags - and actual news consumers - have voiced outrage over megastar Beyoncé 's decision to darken her face with makeup for an Africa-themed photo shoot in the 90th anniversary edition of French fashion rag L'Officiel Paris. Queen B dons traditional-ish African duds in a layout designed to pay tribute to music legend Fela Kuti . According to the New York Daily News, B got the idea after watching Fela! , the Broadway show coproduced by hubby Jay-Z . "The designs are all reflective of the African influence on fashion this season," the mag says in a statement.

One of Beyoncé's biggest fans - the first lady of the United States - was in the audience for the singer's sold-out performance Saturday night at the new Revel in Atlantic City. Michelle Obama, in a sleeveless green dress, and her daughters, Malia and Sasha, took their seats minutes before the 10 p.m. show started. The singer and the first lady seem to have a mutual-admiration society. Last week, Obama told People magazine that if she could switch lives with a celebrity or world figure, she would be Beyoncé.

Beyoncé makes a sharp, if ultimately ironic, observation about the media midway in her HBO documentary, Beyoncé: Life Is but a Dream , which premieres Saturday at 9 p.m. "People are brainwashed," she says. "You get up in the morning, you click on the computer [and] you see all these pictures [of celebrities]. And all you think of is the picture and the image you see all day, every day. And you don't see the human form. " An autobiography of sorts executive-produced and codirected by Beyoncé, Life Is but a Dream promises to cut through the veil, the manufactured illusions, and give us a taste of Beyoncé the individual, Beyoncé the artist, Beyoncé the wife and mother.

Toward the end of the second night of Beyoncé's four-show Memorial Day weekend stand at the Revel casino and resort in Atlantic City on Saturday, the singer and her 11-member all-female band turned their attention to a feminist club-banger called "Run the World (Girls).

It's pretty macabre to call a head-on car crash a blessing in disguise. But that's how the Australian punk-pop trio the Living End views the summer 2001 wreck that injured singer-guitarist Chris Cheney, and sidelined the group as a whole. Fresh off the tour behind its second album, Roll On, the trio was set to head into the studio when Cheney broke his leg in the accident. While the Living End leader was forced to rehabilitate for five months, the band had time to reflect. "I guess Chris' life flashed before his eyes when there was a car coming toward him," bassist Scott Owen says from a tour stop in Atlanta.

Kanye West has his moments of humility, but they never last too long. The rapper and producer and Kim Kardashian-dater began his first of two sold-out shows at the Revel resort in Atlantic City on Friday by taking a tour above the crowd aboard a hydraulic crane. Later, after declaring himself "a hip-hop legend / I think I died in an accident, 'cause this must be heaven," in "Touch the Sky," he paused to take a breath and address the audience at Ovation Hall, where he and three backup musician-programmers and 12 ballet dancers are scheduled to play again on Saturday night.

REPUBLICAN presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee is a secret member of Beyonce's Bey Hive. I have no proof, other than that every time he's on TV lately, the former governor of Arkansas invokes the superstar's name. To my ears, it sounds as if he's a little bit "Drunk in Love. " Not that we can blame him. By riding Beyonce's sequined skirt-tail, Huckabee's getting much-needed traction and scoring invites to programs such as ABC's "The View," where he shared a stage last week with former Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the biggest female music star of them all? Beyoncé made the most money. Taylor Swift sold the most CDs. Tow-may-tow, ta-mah-toe, let's call the whole thing (shake it) off. Queen Bey was No. 1 on Forbes ' new list of 2014's highest-paid female musicians, lifting her earnings from $53 million in 2013 to a staggering $115 million in 2014 - a raise similar to the one Tattle is hoping to get this year. Bey's number left poor, old Taylor in the dust with a piddling $64 million.

THE BEYONCE/JAY Z split rumors gained a wee bit of traction yesterday when the New York Post reported that Queen Bey looked at a $21.5 million Chelsea penthouse without her hubby. Now Tattle, always looking for the best in people, might say: maybe he was busy counting money or something, maybe Bey was looking for an investment property, maybe Blue Ivy needs a new playdate spot. You don't get it, anonymous sources said. Jay is the real-estate guy. He's got 99 problems but a high-priced condo ain't one. The source also told the Post that Jay loves the family's present 8,309-square-foot digs in Tribeca.

From the Solange vs. Jay Z elevator battle in May until now, there have been widespread rumors of trouble in the marriage of Solange's older sister and her husband. Was Jay unfaithful? And if so, how much of a dog do you have to be to cheat on Beyonce? What could you be looking for somewhere else except for someone who's less attractive, less talented and less successful?

  F ORBES has issued one of Tattle's favorite lists of the year, its Celebrity 100, and it should be no susprise that the biggest star in the world is Beyonce . Not only did Queen Bey grace enough magazine covers to score her all kinds of Forbes fame points, she also took in $115 million between June 2013 and June 2014. With income like that, Jay Z could be a stay-at-home dad, but he finished in sixth place and added an additional $60 million to Blue Ivy 's college fund.
