  • The Politics Behind Beyonce's 2018 Coachella Performance

(To that end, the singer has announced $100,000 scholarships to four such colleges, proving she really is the Queen).

The scholarships, funded through her BeyGood initiative, will be granted to one student from each of four schools for the 2018-2019 academic year, according to a BeyGood posting on Beyonce's website.

Everything Beyoncé does seems to have some deeper meaning, and apparently her monumental Coachella set was no exception.

"She also hopes that it will encourage young kids to enroll in our incredible historically Black colleges and universities", Lawson concluded.

The living legend made history at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California Saturday as the first Black woman to headline in the festival's 19-year existence. From the looks of it, Gigi was at the music festival for Cardi B's performance and this pic of hers sees her having lunch before the performance of the rapper, Cardi B. All applicants must maintain a 3.5 GPA or above. The show, with its homage to excellence in education, was a celebration of the homecoming weekend experience, the highest display of college pride. All finalists and winners will be selected by the universities.




Besides Xavier, the other HBCUs include Wilberforce, Tuskegee and Bethune-Cookman.

For her next number, she switched into a sexy latex Balmain bodysuit with bedazzled shoulder pads that matched her new silver manicure.

One victor from each school will be chosen, and he or she will receive their share of US$25,000 for study in the 2018-2019 academic year.

In 2017 Beyoncé announced her Formation Scholars Awards Program, timed to the release of her album Lemonade, which was awarded to "young women who are bold, creative, conscious, confident and unafraid to think outside of the box".
