Beyonce Is Not Doing a Las Vegas Residency

Beyonce is not doing a Las Vegas residency, her rep has confirmed to Variety.

It's "absolutely not true," the rep stated.

Rumors that Queen Bey would be hitting the strip began circulating Saturday after website LoveBScott posted a story citing "sources" that said she would announce the residency in the first half of 2020. The report said the residency would have made Beyonce the highest-paid entertainer in the city.

The "Lemonade" mastermind has performed in Vegas before, releasing the "I Am… Yours: An Intimate Performance at Wynn Las Vegas" album, which was recorded over a few dates during her "I Am…" world tour, in 2009.

The news had, predictably, gotten Beyonce fans riled up, with some claiming that there was no way the star would agree to a residency rather than releasing a new album and touring in support. Others felt that the mother of three might like the steadiness of a residency as opposed to a world tour.

Beyonce's most recent work includes "The Lion King: The Gift," her companion album to the "Lion King" soundtrack, as well as her track "Spirit" for the blockbuster film. She's up for four Grammy awards, including pop vocal album for "The Gift," pop solo performance and song written for visual media for "Spirit," and music film for her documentary "Homecoming."

"Homecoming" was nominated for six Emmys, including pre-recorded variety special, directing for a variety special, and writing for a variety special. It also received nods in the music direction, production design for a variety special, and costumes for a nonfiction, variety, or reality program.

From Billie Eilish to Bon Iver and Rosalia, the top contenders at Sunday's Grammy Awards are turning traditional music genres on their head with a striking fusion of styles. Teen sensation Eilish, body-positive singer Lizzo and gay, black country rapper Lil Nas X lead nominations for the highest awards in the music industry in a list that favors women and newcomers over established stars like Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Bruce Springsteen. Although rap and R&B surpassed rock in 2017 as the dominant music genre in the United States, the field for the four top Grammy prizes - album, record, song of the year and best new artist - is made up of artists who defy neat labels.
