Thanks to her lip-synching scandal, it seems the whole world just can't stop talking about Beyonce. We're happy to keep the conversation going -- but we're ready to move on from her inauguration performance to the topic of her fabulous new Pinterest-inspired Beyhive Blog.
To view Beyonce's latest creation, you must sign up and create a login. (Kind of annoying -- but luckily it's free.) Once you're in, it basically works like Pinterest -- but with the Queen B as the only pinner.
Thus far there are only four board: Hot Links (What I'm Reading, Doing Loving, Wearing, Hearing); Bey Inspired (Inspiring Individuals from the Past & Present); The Ty Hunter (Street Style Photography, Through the Eyes of My Stylist); and Beylove (The Work of My Talented & Passionate Fans).
Our favorite board is definitely Hot Links because it gives us an idea of what makes Beyonce so cool and includes all the things she's really into at the moment. We're happy to see Beasts of the Southern Wild and Argo on the list, as well as The Pierces and these awesome Giraffe flats.
The fashion portion of the Beyhive Blog gives us a good sense of where Bey gets her style from. Ty Hunter is Beyonce's stylist, and this section includes his collection of street photography that helps him get fashion inspiration. It will be interesting to see if watching the board can help predict changes in the styles Beyonce wears in public and at her shows.
Beylove is Beyonce's way to showcase the impressive fan art she receives while Bey Inspired is her list of inspirational people. (Unsurprisingly, Barack Obama, Quvenzhane Wallis and Michael Jackson are at the top of the list.)
This new blog is definitely fun, but we hope that Beyonce plans to expand it. What about a favorite recipes section or images of art that inspires her? Or how about a board just for pinning adorable photos of Blue Ivy? (Okay, we realize that one's a long shot!)
For now we'd say that Beyhive is definitely worth signing up for -- and die-hard fans will likely go nuts. But it's also got some room to grow before it becomes a necessary part of our daily routine.
