Beyoncé Performs At The City Of Hope Gala
OTRII may be over but your faves Bey and Hubby Hov took center stage last night for the City of Hope Gala, held at the Barker Hanger in Los Angeles. Jay Z hosted the event along with Pharrell Williams, and the pair awarded Jon Platt, Chairman of Warner Chappell Music, the Spirit of Life Award for his dedication to the charity’s research and treatment for cancer, diabetes and other diseases. Beyoncé and Trombone Shorty were among the performers to take the stage for the night.
The event was star studded, with Usher, Quincy Jones, Kelly Rowland, Rita Ora, Dr. Dre, Derek Fisher and Gloria Govan among the guests in attendance.
We weren’t surprised AT ALL to see Tiffany Haddish happy to reunite with Jay Z — despite many of y’all thinking the Carters had to be ticked at her for her colorful “Bey got bitten” story.
Hov clearly ain’t trippin…

The Prisoner Wine Company was the official wine sponsor of the star-studded evening while D’USSE was the cognac sponsor.
Guests watched in awe as Beyoncé performed Ava Maria on a stage with a water feature so intense, it pushed Trombone Shorty to a separate stage. Red-carpet regular Tiffany Haddish was handed a glass of The Prisoner Wine Company wine upon arrival before being escorted into the venue for dinner, where she was ultimately shown to the wrong side of the room. Haddish meandered for what seemed like 30 minutes before finding her place at the table, where she DESPERATELY needed a glass of wine, and was promptly served a glass of Blindfold Chardonnay. “Girls” singers, Bebe Rexa and Rita Ora were all hugs and kisses after reuniting on the red carpet and continuing to the night’s festivities.
Bey looked flawless for real
Kelly Rowland has really been killing the game lately
And y’all already know Gloria Govan and Derek Fisher love hitting big events in La La Land.
