Beyoncé and rapper husband Jay-Z have performed together at a gig in London to raise awareness of a new campaign supporting girls and women across the globe.

Jennifer Lopez, Ellie Goulding, and Rita Ora were also among a host of stars at Twickenham singing in aid of Chime For Change, which promotes education, health and justice for women.

Crazy In Love singer Beyonce Knowles – who is mum to one-year-old Blue Ivy Carter – said: “Women’s rights have always been close to my heart.

“Being a mother, it’s really important that I do what I can and use my voice. There are many women around the world that don’t have one.

“We have to use our voices and raise awareness and be part of something where we can leave our legacy and help improve this world.”

Chime for Change was founded by Beyoncé, actress Salma Hayek, and Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini.

Its website will host information about 120 not-for-profit organisations that promote gender equality, which people can then choose to fund directly.

The concert was broadcast in 150 countries to an estimated audience of one billion people.

Pop queen Madonna was not among the performers at Twickenham, but she appeared in a short film about women.

She told the crowd: “What happens when we educate girls? We empower them. They have jobs, they have opportunities, they know their rights, they have the ability to defend themselves, support their families and be an integral, productive part of the human race.”

The concert took place 100 years to the day since Emily Davison became a martyr for women’s rights, when she threw herself in front of a horse at the Epsom Derby.

Beyonce’s demands for London’s 02 event

A list of demands from Beyonce‘s London O2 Arena residency have reportedly been revealed.

The singer is allegedly demanding £600 drinking straws and hand-carved ice balls on her rider and she is insisting that her crew wear only 100 per cent pure cotton clothes, to save her from allergic reactions, according to The Daily Star. It also claims she demands her dressing room has freshly painted white walls and a new toilet seat, and will only use red toilet paper.

Junk food is banned and snacks must include glass platters of almonds and oatcakes – and there’s a strict green-only policy when it comes to salad bar nibbles. Other reported demands include special alkaline water that is served at exactly 21 degrees. “She’s extremely regimented and is taking everything extremely seriously, so she expects her list of demands to be adhered to. Working so hard and with the toll the travel takes on her body in addition to the intense shows, she feels that her requests aren’t too much to ask for as she wants to ensure everything goes to plan,” a source said.

During her six-night residency, Beyonce has snubbed brand new dressing rooms at the venue in favour of much larger quarters normally reserved for sports teams. “The new dressing rooms are superb – it’s like you’ve stepped into a luxury apartment. But she surprised everyone by turning them down, going for the larger ones that are used by sports teams when they play at the O2,” an insider told the Evening Standard, before adding: “They are much bigger though, and she was given free rein to refurbish them to her own taste. They’re also in a quieter part of the backstage area, which gives her a better atmosphere to get focused for her shows.”

Beyonce last night (April 30) played the second night of her O2 residency, performing for another packed house and – as happened previously – covering part of The Verve’s ‘Bitter Sweet Symphony’. Her song ‘If I Were A Boy’ replicated the Verve hit’s string sample, and the lyrics were changed to include the ‘Bitter Sweet Symphony’ line “I’m a million different people from one day to the next“.

Beyonce dazzles at London’s O2

To her fans she is Beyonce and according to her tour title she is Mrs Carter, but whatever name she uses the former Destiny’s Child star never fails to dazzle.

Monday night’s show at London’s O2 arena was no exception, with the Crazy in Love singer mesmerizing the crowds with her showstopping outfits and polished choreography.

Performing her Mrs Carter show in the capital for the first night, she took to the stage in a series of racy costumes that made no attempt to hide her famous curves.

Pictures of the gig were quick to appear on Twitter, despite the photo ban that the singer has imposed on audience members at her concerts.

The Mrs Carter Show World Tour began in the Serbian capital, Belgrade, on April 15.

Its title is a reference to Beyoncé’s marriage to Jay-Z, the rapper, whose real name is Shawn Carter.

 

She is performing a total of 11 concerts in the UK this month and next, before returning for one more show at Twickenham Stadium on June 1.

She announced the tour, her fourth solo one, after performing at the Super Bowl half-time show earlier this year in the US.

Her UK dates come two years after her performance at the Glastonbury music festival, which Jay Z has also played.

The show was the first of four dates in London and she plays the same venue tonight, Wednesday and Friday.

Following her Superbowl performance in February, Beyonce’s publicist asked news websites to remove photos of her on stage that were deemed “unflattering”.
