Beyoncé and Jay Z Showed a Video From Their Secret Wedding Last Night

Originally posted on TIME:

Beyoncé and Jay Z gave the crowd at the first stop on their highly anticipated “On the Run” tour more to talk about than just the music Wednesday night.

The duo showed off a few very brief seconds of previously unseen footage from their 2008 wedding. You might have to watch the video a few times, but eagle-eyed fans will spot details from what looks like a relatively normal ceremony: the couple exchanges rings; Beyoncé sports a very traditional-looking white wedding dress and veil; and attendees cheer joyously when they walk down the aisle after the ceremony. Except everything was probably really, really expensive. And a lot of other celebrities were probably there. So maybe not like your wedding at all.

The couple has always been secretive about their union, but the video even offers a glimpse of the couple’s famous wedding ring “IV” tattoos. (The couple is obsessed with…

Originally posted on Hollywood Life:

She’s done it again! Just when we thought we’ve seen Queen Bey’s sexiest look, she proved, (once again!), that she is the fiercest of them all! We fell in love with all of the singer’s outrageous onstage looks — and her confidence in showing so much skin. What do you think about Beyonce’s costumes?

Beyonce Knowles, 32, and husband, Jay Z, kicked off their “On The Run” tour at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami on June 25, and Beyonce looked hotter than ever! The power couple’s onstage presence was unreal, but we think it was Bey’s costumes that kept fans on their feet. From thong bodysuits to sheer styles and short shorts, she wasn’t shy when it came to showing off a whole lot of skin. Which of her sultry looks was your favorite?

Beyonce And Jay Z Take The Stage During The First Night Of Their "On The Run" Tour In Miami

WarningJay Z and Beyonce are officially on the run. The two were last seen killing shit in Florida.

Jay and Bey kicked off their 16-date “On the Run” tour last night at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida.

The duo spent two-plus hours running through some of the biggest hits of their respective careers. The show’s format allowed the couple to perform their own individual hits. However, they still had considerable stage time together: in fact, they kicked things off with “’03 Bonnie and Clyde,” their first hit together.

According to US Magazine, one of the show’s highlights included behind the scenes footage of their wedding displayed on the big screen, as well as footage of Bey waddling around with daughter Blue Ivy.

The night closed out with Jay Z’s Blueprint 3 standout, “Forever Young.”

It looked like an epic night. We can’t believe there will be 15 more of these…

Check out footage of Bey and Jay…
