Beyonce Sells Out New York Concert in Seconds

It took Beyonce 4:51 seconds to sing “Run the World (Girls)” and a fraction of that time to sell out an intimate concert in New York at the famed Roseland Ballroom.

Beyonce announced “4 Intimate Nights With Beyonce,” earlier this week and within 22 seconds, the first night was sold out. Sasha Fierce is soooo fierce! Tickets went on sale on August 11th for the first show, which is on August 14th and sold out in seconds.

She’s still going to perform on August 16, 18 and 19th at New York City’s famed Roseland Ballroom, but those shows sold out as well.

“It’s official @Beyonce’s 4th & final show at Roseland Ballroom is SOLD OUT! Thats a total of 4 sold out shows next week!” tweeted the label.

And when Beyonce isn’t selling out concerts in seconds, she’s lending her famous name—and voice—to a good cause.

Beyonce, Madonna, Rihanna, U2 and a 150 other artists have all come together to bring awareness to the devastating food crisis in Somalia and East Africa.

Over 10 million people have been affected by the food and water shortage and celebrities are using their Facebook and Twitter pages in hopes of reaching one billion people.

Beyonce’s hubby Jay-Z is also lending his name to the important cause. It’s incredible that regardless of how busy these two are, they always have time to lend their support to a good cause.

Jay-Z’s new album “Watch the Throne” is kicking butt on the charts. It’s the number one album on iTunes and is set to sell over half a million copies opening week. If it sells 500K copies it’ll become the second biggest opener of the year after Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”.

In the midst of all the hype surrounding Jay-Z and Kanye West's much-anticipated joint-album, "Watch The Throne," Forbes has named Jay Z #1 on their Hip Hop's top earners list.

Calling the list "Cash Kings 2011: Hip Hop's Top Earners" describes the hip hop millionaires as "all living artists whose work is primarily classified as hip-hop or rap," and "the estimates include income from record sales, touring, digital downloads, films, merchandise sales, endorsements, books and other entertainment ventures."

If you combine Beyonce and Jay-Z’s salary, it can probably get California out of bankruptcy. Jay Z has made $37 million a year for five consecutive years and Beyonce makes the same, if not more. They’re the epitome of a power couple—all hail the King and Queen!
