Lab 006 - StarChella

“Shining, shining, shining, shining, yeah….” - Beyoncé (with Jay-Z & DJ Khaled)

Beyoncé got each and every one of us (with Netflix) in formation over the past week. Last year she headlined Coachella and effectively renamed it Bey-Chella. She dropped Homecoming and snatched our edges. We already knew she was a star, but this documentary put the telescope right against our eyes and gave us an even better view of just how spectacular Beyoncé Knowles Carter is! Can you tell that we are big fans?

About the Episode
