Beyoncé may be getting close to delivering the year’s most anticipated twin babies, but that doesn’t mean her social calendar has slowed down. The typically private singer was out and about this weekend, including supporting her mother’s inaugural Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday night. Tina Lawson stood in for her daughter on the red carpet, where a mini–Destiny’s Child reunion took place with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. Beyoncé skipped the carpet and headed straight inside with her husband, Jay Z.
Beyoncé was hardly hiding from the public, though, as she took to Instagram to share photos and, unexpectedly, write a lengthy caption to accompany them. After posting a photo of herself wearing the world’s largest floral crown alongside Lawson, Rowland, and sister Solange Knowles, Beyoncé wrote:
I am super proud of my beautiful mother for creating such an awesome event. Close to $1 million was raised for The WACO Theater Center to benefit young people through their mentorship programs and the arts. Mom, you inspire us all to be generous, selfless, positive, to have empathy, to love and to praise creativity in the world. It brought tears to my eyes to be a witness to what you and Richard have created together. WACO is a safe place truly Where Art Can Occur. I love you.
The night before, Beyoncé joined Rowland at Jessica Alba’s Prince vs. Michael Jackson birthday party at the Peppermint Club in West Hollywood. While she posted no ’grams from the event, she was photographed wearing a sparkling silver suit and black fedora, most likely lending her support to team Jackson. For the record, Alba appeared to remain neutral.
The Knowles-Carter family ended their weekend with courtside seats at the Clippers vs. Jazz game in Los Angeles. In keeping with her basketball traditions, Beyoncé wore all Gucci, including a $5,890 floral embroidered blazer and $1,790 backpack with the words “Modern Future” stamped in black, gothic font. She left her silk “Modern Future” fan at home this time, but at least the world can rest easy knowing that Blue Ivy wasn’t bored at home the whole weekend.
