Beyoncé advised us all in her single “Formation” to “Always stay gracious. The best revenge is your paper.” The singer showed she lives by those words when she pulled a bawse move recently. Back in February, it was reported that protesters would descend upon the NFL Headquarters in  New York City to boycott Beyoncé in  protest of  what they called a “race baiting stunt” with her Black Panther themed performance at the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show. It bombed when only two people showed up. In addition, the Miami Fraternal Order of Police also threatened to boycott for what they deemed an “anti police” message. That was later countered by Miami Police Department spokesman Major Delrish Moss who stated that Bey and Marlins Park, the venue where she was scheduled to perform, would be protected by police presence. Well, last night marked the opening night of the “Formation World Tour” in Miami and she had the last laugh. The “Lemonade” songstress is selling “Boycott Beyoncé” merchandise on the tour and fan Twitter accounts Bey Legion and Bey Capital have been posting updates and revealed that Beyoncé is poking fun at her critics and laughing all the way to the bank with the merchandise. Singer DeAngelo paid a moving tribute to Prince during a performance of “Sometimes It Snows In April” with the help of Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Lieberum’s cover band Princess, for “The Tonight Show” audience. Sitting at the piano while surrounded by purple lighting, DeAngelo tenderly sang the Prince classic. He even altered some of the lyrics in remembrance of the music legend. It’s difficult to watch without getting teary eyed. Rapper G Easy will be crowned the first homecoming king of Billboard and 1800 Tequila’s upcoming three part concert series “Back To The Block”, which will feature some of today’s biggest hip hop acts returning to their  hometowns for intimate shows. The Bay Area native, whose sophomore album “When It’s Dark Out” reached the No. 1 spot on the Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums Chart last December, will return to his old stomping grounds on in Oakland CA. on Monday May 2 for a sure to be epic concert. Fans can enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win tickets to see the rapper at billboardsweeps.com. The sweeps close tonight at 11:59 p.m.
