Beyoncé launches new album with secret London gig


Last night, the reigning Queen of Glastonbury, Beyoncé, showcased songs from her forthcoming album, 4, at a secret gig in London. I was lucky enough to get invited to the intimate gig. Fans, press and her many, MANY celebrity fans, including husband Jay-Z, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessie J, Adele, Tinie Tempah, Ewan McGregor, Stella McCartney, Paloma Faith, Tom Ford and Alison Mosshart turned out for the hour long set.

The crowd was going crazy before B even put a Louboutin on stage, with huge cheers as the A-list guests took their VIP seats. Adele and Jessie J (and her crutches) received huge cheers, as did Jay-Z and Tinie Tempah, but, most surprisingly, it was Gwyneth Paltrow who everyone went NUTS for.

Beyoncé looked beautiful in a fringed yellow dress, and was flanked by dancers in the same dress, but in other colour popping shades (very AW 11), and an all-girl backing singer and band collective. She was, of course, amazing, beautiful and very endearing. It was incredible to watch her perform in such an intimate and relaxed setting (she even took song requests from the crowd!).

My favourite song of the night was Beyoncé's cover of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody (you can have a listen in the video below), but she also tried her hand at Prince and Kings of Leon, as well as tracks from her new album, 4, and Beyoncé classics, like Single Ladies and Halo.
