Beyonce's surprise doesn't end with new album: Did she cheat on her vegan diet in Houston?
Just as Beyoncé released her latest album without a word of warning (as only Queen Bey can), tongues are wagging after she posted photos of Frenchy's fried chicken to her Facebook album from her recent trip to Houston, causing speculation about her adherence to her new vegan diet.
She presented contradictory evidence on her Instagram account Friday with photos of vegan cupcakes to celebrate the 100th show of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, indicating that the superstar may be sticking to the 22-day vegan challenge — incited by husband Jay Z — after all.
Beyoncé showed the world that she can do just about whatever she wants when she unexpectedly dropped her new "visual album" late Thursday night.
"I see music. It's more than just what I hear."
The self-titled album — released exclusively on iTunes — is Beyoncé's fifth studio effort and her first album since 2011's "4." The 14-song collection features "Drunk In Love," a collaboration with Jay Z; "Mine," featuring Drake; "Superpower," with Frank Ocean; and "Blue," a song with her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. "XO," which has long been rumored to be a single from a new album, also appears on the track list.
Always one to do it her own way, Beyoncé's new album not only features 14 tracks, but 17 accompanying videos as well.
"I see music," Beyoncé said in a video announcement on . "It's more than just what I hear. When I’m connected to something, I immediately see a visual or a series of images that are tied to a feeling or an emotion, a memory from my childhood, thoughts about life, my dreams or my fantasies.
"And they’re all connected to the music."
