Look, Beyonce is free to sing songs about her husband cheating on her all day long, and those songs can be full of the juiciest, most intimate details of her marriage. She can release a visual album full of those songs, she can take that album on tour, whatever. But the moment she brings her innocent child into things, when she uses her daughter to promote this sad mess, that's taking things too far.

That moment, in case you haven't caught on yet, is now ...

So Beyonce kicked off her Formation tour last night, and good for her. She's back on top where she likes to be, she's got all eyes on her after selling out her marriage for record sales -- life is good for Queen Bey. But looking through the photos from her first concert, we noticed something a little strange. Something, dare we say, a lil Lil Kim-ish.

That photo up top is from the show, from one of the earlier numbers. But by the end of the show, Beyonce looked a little different. Or, well, a lot different:

Her skin looks lighter than ever before, doesn't it? There've been rumors for a long time now that she's bleached her skin, and she even sang about it on that new album, but this is still pretty startling. Here, let's get up close and personal:

Real talk: if you were shocked by Lil Kim's new look, you should be surprised at this, too. Sure, Beyonce hasn't butchered her facial features with tragically unnecessary plastic surgery like some people do, and she's still recognizable, but this is startling and saddening nonetheless.

So are we bitches still supposed to bow down?

Boy, doesn't just everybody think Beyonce's "Lemonade" is about them? Rita OraRachel Roy, and now Bey's estranged-ish dad, Mathew Knowles. Good grief, this is worse than "Partition" and "Formation" put together.  

Knowles says, "I can say I have never in my life hit my daughter," when asked during a podcast if he was the one his daughter was referring to when she talked about "being a slave" to a "back hand."  

"So [no], she has never been a slave to the back of my hand because I didn't believe in that," he concluded. 

He does, however, think he might have an idea as to whom Bey's alluding, and he's not shy about it: Knowles says that it's ...

"I want to put the speculation and rumors to rest. My Instagram post was meant to be fun and lighthearted, it was misunderstood as something other than that. There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors. Consequently, online haters have targeted me and my daughters in a hurtful and scary manner, including physical threats. As a mother – and I know many mothers would agree – I feel that bullying in any form is harmful and unacceptable. 
I would hope that the media sees the real issue here – the issue of cyber bullying – and how it should not be tolerated by anyone."

--Rachel Roy, the main suspect in the mysterious case of Beyonce and the Becky with the good hair, makes a statement denying the rumors that she had an affair with Jay Z. Things are getting wild, guys.

Honestly, we're not sure what to make of all this. The rumor of this affair is one that's persisted for a long time, so it's a little hard to automatically assume Rachel is telling the truth -- of course she'd deny it, right? But regardless, she's right in that the "online haters," AKA the Beyhive, are completely out of control and absolutely need to leave her alone. Really, they need to do some meditating on why they're so damn unstable, but putting a stop to threats against this woman and her kids would be a start.

And don't worry, because Rita Ora, the other possible Becky, has also addressed the matter ...

Classy or trashy? You decide. It always takes somebody's ma to go ahead and put something in perspective, doesn't it? 

Beyonce's mom had a lot to say on Instagram over the last few days about her daughter's "Lemonade," and we're kind of ... well, we're a little shocked by what we're seeing here, since Bey's mom is definitely the one who's been most vocal about things:

Wendy Williams often says the things that folks are thinking but aren't willing to verbalize, 'cause they value their families, friendships, jobs, and positions in society. Real talk. 

About Beyonce and the whole drummed-up "Lemonade" controversy, Williams says, "Quite frankly, I wish that Beyoncé held off on this whole album until Prince ... until the entire weekend kind of blew over." 

She continued, asserting that the entire thing is likely to be a publicity stunt (for Tidal? Shh). 

"[It's a setup]. Rachel Roy, first of all, you're not this fighting girl," Wendy blasts. "Unless you're on Jay Z and Beyonce's payroll and they paid you to mix it up to add, I guess, more sales for this 'Lemonade.'" 

And as one of our favorite commenters pointed out yesterday, Bob, yes. This. All of this. Beyonce not canning this thing in light of Prince's shock death is trashy, disrespectful, and honestly, pathetic. We're not even sure that "Lemonade" is even a reality, and yet it, in some circles, overshadowed the death of a man of real, celebrity, musical talent ... unlike Beyonce herself. 

Selfish, self-indulgent, and pompous ... that about sums up Beyonce, right?

... Not real lemonade, the delicious and refreshing summertime beverage, of course. We're talking about Beyonce's new album, Lemonade. And how unfortunate for all of us.

Chances are that you haven't been able to step foot on the internet without hearing so many things about this Lemonade deal. Not just about its "surprise" release, but about all the lyrics and the meanings behind those lyrics and the video and what it all means. Which is totally fair, because it's just natural to be curious about such scandal, especially when the scandal is about figuring out who Jay Z had his presumed affair with.

And don't worry, guys, because we are all over this ...
