Outside of being one of the baddest entertainers in the universe, Beyoncé is also known for her poised and polished nature. But during Queen Bey's second On The Run tour, it's become apparent that there's a general dearth of f**ks being given. We're not sure if it's the twins or getting older or being able to fully enjoy the second tour with her husband, but we are here for it. In honor of the 37th Bey day, we've compiled some clips from the On The Run II tour to help us all appreciate what happens when Beyoncé lives her best life.So nice seeing Beyoncé having fun. She’s worked so hard for so long, and is such a perfectionist.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z might pretend Atlanta doesn't exist next time they have a tour. The Carters had a security scare near the end of their performance in Atlanta on Saturday, August 25, reports Page Six. An unidentified man ran on stage behind Queen Bey and Hov in what appeared to be an attempt to harm the couple.Videos from fans attending the concert captured dancers and a few security guards intervening and escorting him off. CNN reports the man, wearing a white jersey, will not be charged.

How far would you go to be on the run with Bey and Jay? It turns out one fan would go all the way up. According to WDAS, Zemarcuis Devon Scott decided he needed to see the duo "by any means necessary" and allegedly attempted to commandeer and fly an American Eagle jet from Texarkana Regional Airport to see the famous couple's second joint tour. Scott was found sitting in the cockpit of one of American Eagle's planes by police, who quickly apprehended him. Police questioning revealed he doesn't have any formal pilot training, FOX8 reports. He told police he didn't believe flying a plane was any more complicated than pushing buttons and pulling levers. Um.The 18-year-old was arrested on Monday, August 6, on charges of commercial burglary and attempted theft of property with a value greater than $25,000. His bond was set at $25,000.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z aren’t tolerating hustlers who want to sell bootleg tour merch outside of their concerts.TMZ reports Three Ten Merchandising Services, the company handling the Carter’s official OTR II merch, has filed a restraining order to prevent merchants from selling the gear outside of Boston’s Gillette Stadium.Merchandise from the tour has proven to be popular. Beyoncé's been slaying the merch game in general, lately, with hoodies based on her Beychella looks drawing acclaim. With those hoodies starting at $550, those looking to score some Bey merchandise at a more affordable price-point have been forced to look elsewhere.Three Ten hopes an order will give law enforcement the authority to confiscate any off-brand merch upon discovery. The company also expressed its intent to file civil suits if authorities are unable to seize the merchandise right away. The lawsuits will cost an estimated $450,000.Court papers likened Three Ten's request to those other artists who received similar court orders, including Lady Gaga, P!nk and Katy Perry. The judge granted the request.Now, check these out:Beyoncé Has Full Control Over Her September Vogue Issue -- So She Tapped A 23-Year-Old Black Photographer To Shoot Her CoverObamas Spotted Boppin' To 'N***as In Paris' At Beyoncé And Jay-Z ConcertEverything Really Is Love: These 'OTR II Tour' Dancers Got Married In Jamaica And Are On The Run As...
Jay-Z and Beyoncé's On the Run II tour is all about love (because everything is love).Proving it are OTR II tour dancers Quinetta Shaw, 32, and Britton Shaw, 29, who recently got married in Montego Bay, Jamaica. The couple tied the knot on July 7, 2018, and are spending the first days of their new lives together dancing on tour.The couple chatted with Essence about how they met, when they got engaged and dropped deets on their fabulous island wedding. While in college pursuing her nursing degree, Quinetta joined a dance group and became acquainted with a fellow dancer.That dancer also happened to be a musical artist and opened for Chris Brown. Through that friend, Quinetta met Britton's brother, Deshawn, who encouraged them both to move to Los Angeles after graduation to pursue careers in dance. "[Deshawn] came and saw us at one of our rehearsals and said, 'You guys need to move to L.A.' We did move after graduation, and he introduced us to everybody, and kind of took us under his wing," Quinetta recalled. "When we couldn't make it home for holidays, and things like that, he would allow us to come to his home for Thanksgiving or Christmas to have a good meal during the holidays. That's how I met Britton and his parents. All this happened in 2009, but we were just friends. Fast forward to 2012 and whenever we saw each other in the club and when we would recreate music videos together."Things became more serious when the two ran into each other at church."I think feelings started residing in my heart when we both stood up and accepted Christ back into our lives, and we would just tell our stories and always just talking about God and really get to know Him on a deeper level," said Britton. "One day, she was talking about her journey in celibacy, but, at the same time, I was going through my own journey in celibacy, and that's when I really saw her light and really saw her for more than a friend. Plus, my mom already called her daughter."The two got engaged in 2016 while Quinetta was touring with Bey on her Formation tour. Britton got down on one knee while she was saying grace, surrounded by her family and friends in Philly. She opened her eyes and voila! Britton was proposing! According to Britton, their wedding was a "turn-up," and everything went smoothly. Their love was in formation. "It felt more like a family reunion than a wedding," he said. "Every day was like being in euphoria like being in the Garden of Eden. It was just amazing."Yaaas! Congrats to the Shaws! This isn't the first time the OTR II dancers have made news for a poppin' off-stage life. In June, a few of the female dancers were spotted turning up in a UK bar.Liking this content?

Beyoncé never ceases to surprise us with her methods of slaying the stage, and after killing her performances across Europe, she deemed her last show on the continent deserved a mic drop...literally.While performing in Nice, France, on Tuesday, July 17, Bey performed her infamous ballad on infidelity, “Resentment.” The track from her B’Day album became a staple at her performances during the first On the Run tour in 2014. It seems that with every performance of the song, Queen Bey switches up her rendition just a bit. With every switch, fans get their lives, but her latest stunt has the Beyhive going "Apes**t." In the clip, we hear Yoncé effortlessly hitting all of the notes before we see her iconically drop the mic.When Twitter got ahold of the footage, it was a done deal.Beyoncé really slayed the stage tonight. Watch until the end, that mic drop! #OTRII

The Obamas seemingly have a healthy relationship with the Knowles-Carter family.

Turns out, there's a slight scheduling issue with OTR II's Paris stop and the World Cup.France has made it to the final match of what's arguably the biggest sports event in the world, and with the nation tuning in to root for their players, Beyoncé and JAY-Z figured out a whole new way to cater to their crowd!As USA TODAY reports, the popular couple won't make their fans choose: instead they plan to combine their concert with a broadcast of the match! France won its semi-final game against Belgium in a 1-0, victory and will be advancing to the final match on July 15, the same day as Bey and Jay's Paris leg of their tour. The pair announced on Wednesday they're hosting a World Cup viewing party at Stade de France stadium, and their performance will jump off after the game is over.“Twenty years after the French team won its first world title, Beyonce and JAY-Z invite people with tickets for their concert to come to the Stade de France at 16h00 in order to take advantage of the stadium’s screens, as well as those of the production team, to carry Les Bleus towards their final victory," the OTR II Paris tour organizers said according to Sport Pesa News.

Beyoncé isn’t the most celebrated living entertainer for no reason, and her actions during a stage malfunction in Poland is further proof as to why. Bey and Jay-Z were ending a set when their flying OTR II stage malfunctioned in midair. Keeping their cool, it wasn’t initially apparent to fans that something wasn’t right until the credits began rolling and the couple wasn’t coming back down to the ground. Upon Queen Bey’s thank you to their dancers, fans and their crew for building the stage (we’re going to assume she wasn’t shady here), crew members quickly ran out with a ladder to help the couple down.The floating stage had a malfunction and got stuck at the end of the show so Beyoncé had to use an emergency ladder in order to leave. #OTRII
