Beyoncé’s highly popular Arm and a Leg Tour (better known as the Renaissance World Tour) hasn’t touched down in the States just yet, but it’s already making history. For starters, during her time in Sweden, there was a boom in inflation and not just due to her wind machine and weave budget. And when you’re demanding that much money from folks, you must ensure the show goes off without a hitch. Unfortunately, that was not the case at a recent show in Amsterdam, where Beyonce’s crew members proved they were already over the long hours of hearing the same damn songs over and over again. While they were droned out, they missed a very important cue during her set. And since she’s not the best actress (sorry, Hive, but she ain’t), she was unable to mask the irritation all over her face at their faux pas.
Beyoncé really is fucking with the economies of the world! First, she’s fighting with the U.S. Tax Man over $3 million, and now she’s being linked to inflation in a whole other country on a different continent! Bey’s tour stop in Sweden reportedly caused price hikes in the country for the month of May. The Bey Hive isn’t the only thing to fear when it comes to Beyoncé–she might get your money fucked up, too!
Whimsical word witch Taylor Swift is currently shaking her tail feather on a lucrative world tour set to catapult her bank account further into the multimillions, especially since she’s just announced that her Eras tour is going to Latin America. And while Taylor is patiently awaiting the songs of heartbreak she’ll create after her latest relationship turns to shit, Taylor has something else to celebrate as well. Forbes magazine recently released its America’s Richest Self-Made Women issue, and Taylor finds herself nestled in with the usual suspects Rihanna, Beyoncé, and Oprah Winfrey. And Taylor’s placement not only solidifies her reign as the Empress of Emotions. It also places her high above on the list.
Well, Beyoncé may be about to make $2.4 billion from her sold-out Renaissance World Tour, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t ready to siphon more money from the Beyhive and into her own pockets. But this time, she’s giving them more than second-hand nosebleed seats that were double their value upon resale–she’s giving them some kind of hair care-related something! It’s just a tease, she hasn’t been forthcoming. But Queen Bey does have some incredible hair that she seems quite committed to making the world believe is fully and completely naturally growing from her head and is not a wig or even extensions. But maybe that’s what the announcement will really be about? Beweave by Beyoncé!
Although artists like Janet Jackson and Taylor Swift are already in the swing of their respective world tours they understand they’re merely appetizers as the main course, Beyoncé, prepares to empty everyone’s pockets with her expensive tour. When she dropped Renaissance last year, the world stopped and dropped it like a thotty for months in anticipation of her re-emergence to the world stage. Now it’s being reported that Queen Bey will gladly buzz all the way to the bank at the end of this multi-city shakedown to the tune of $2.4 billion. And that’s $500 million more than what Taylor’s Eras tour will see once she steps aside for Queen Bey’s summer reign.
I think Beyoncé is in her ordinary people era by reminding us she does the same things we do. Or, in this case, things we sometimes don’t do since our favorite alien superstar is currently having issues with the IRS. The IRS claims that Beyoncé owes $2.7 million in back taxes and penalties, but instead of digging into her wig budget and paying them to go away, she has countered by filing a petition in U.S. Tax Court. And like Shakira with the Spanish Tax Man before her, Beyoncé claims that she doesn’t owe Uncle Sam another dime.
