Prepare to see the Beyhive don orange jumpsuits for the forseeable future. Vanity Fair is out with a report that Laverne Cox is partnering up with Beyoncé on a secret project. But the deets – like much of what Queen B does – are pretty scarce. Laverne did, however, confirm there was something coming when she was on Access Hollywood Tuesday.

September 6?! Ugh, you mean those two are going to make the Beyhive sit through one last summer barbecue over Labor Day Weekend at boring Uncle Ferdinand’s house before they can find out if this means Bey is going to try and add an Emmy to her award closet and don an outfit at Litchfield Prison? Please, this is Beyoncé. They need her, not the other way around. In her mind, she’s totally throwing Laverne a life raft so people can forget about that legal drama she was on with Katherine Heigl on Memaw Pepaw Network…I mean, CBS.
While we don’t know what in hell this partnership will be, the two did meet at the Grammys this year in just about the most Beyoncé fashion ever, per Laverne:
“I was like, ‘I love you,’ and she’s like, ‘I know you do…I love you, too.’’And she’s like ‘Your Lip Sync Battle was amazing.’ She had seen I did Destiny’s Child.”
Ha! You know it really just stopped at “I know you do” and then Beyoncé floated away and left Solange to do the small talk. Laverne said the key to wooing Beyoncé is to act serene and play it cool. Yeah, okay. It’s apparent all you have to do is go on Lip Sync Battle and do a Beyoncé number in front of Chrissy Teigen to smoke Destiny’s Favorite Child out of her fox hole. Channing Tatum did it, and she made a cameo. Laverne does it, and suddenly Bey is drawing up legal papers for a new venture. Shit, Aaron Carter, you should go on and perform “Bills, Bills, Bills,” and maybe she’ll pay your AutoZone bill?
