Beyonce Teases Us & HBO with LEMONADE

She has done it again. Beyonce is grabbing attention with another surprise event on HBO. It is titled LEMONADE and it hits the screen on Saturday, April 23 at 9:00pm. But what is it?

The other fact is a big one: you got to know or want to know about the title subject which is Billie “Lady Day” Holliday. Some of you just might...
