Beyonce's actually shooting the video at the Oakdale Mobile Home Park - and not all residents are pleased. Ginger Sickles told RTT News: "I'm a little upset. They could have given us a heads-up. If it was Kenny Rogers, that would have been better. I don't know Beyonce. My daughters know Beyonce."

Beyonce is on a working holiday in the French capital. She and husband Jay-Z have set up a makeshift studio in their $20,000/night, two-story suite at the Hotel Le Meurice. Rumor is the pair are recording a new song featuring Kanye West. A source told People:
"[Beyonce] hasn't gone out on one of her customary kamikaze boutique runs ... They've set up a studio in another suite and have been working nights on her album."
It's not all work and no play for the Single Ladies songstress. She and her 6-year-old nephew Daniel were spotted at Disneyland Paris on Thursday.

A snippet of Bey's new single - which samples 2009 cult dance track Pon De Floor by Major Lazer - actually hit the web yesterday. MTV describes it as a "feisty club-thumper about the power of being female":
"Love it how we're smart enough to make these millions, strong enough to bear the children, then get back to business," she sings. "Please, you better not play me. Oh, come here, baby/ Hope you still like me, if you pay me."
Beyonce is seen filming the music video for her new single "Girl" under a freeway overpass in Los Angeles on Tuesday (April 12). The singer was also spotted filming in the Mojave Desert on Monday. Check out those pics here.
"Girl" is expected to be the first single off Bey's much anticipated fourth album, which drops this summer. She told MTV that her new album will be influenced by music across all genres:
"I'm not in a box. It's not R&B. It's not typically pop. It's not rock. It's just everything I love all mixed together in my own little gumbo of music."
Check out video some eagle-eyed snapper took of Beyonce on set:

According to rumors, 200 African dancers - requiring the use of eight choreographers - are being used in the video. One commenter on the Pulse Music Board described what the recent casting call for the video was like in Los Angeles:
"My friend got there and there were like 200 or more people in the room. A lot of Bey's old dancers and probably every major dancer and choreographer you could think of. The song is called 'Girl'. The video is being directed by Francis Lawrence. He was also there. 8 or 9 choreographers contributed to the routine. Danielle Polanco and Luam were 2 of those choreographers. Beyonce was there of course going over the routine and they were figuring out which pieces of the choreography they would be showcasing in the music video. The theme of "Girl" is like a female empowerment/girl power type of song that is a definite club banger with Top 40/Worldly appeal. The beat is driven by a sample of a popular club song that a lot of you will probably recognize. There's a breakdown in the song that is described as absolutely f**king disgustingly sick! Definitely an anthem in the style of her singing. My friend couldn't remember exact lyrics, but 'Girl...girl....girl' is repeated a lot through out the song.
"More on the choreography. No males will be dancing except these 2 African men that do this sick solo African intro with footwork at the top of the routine. There may be more, but at the meeting today only those 2 men were dancing. One of the choreographers was an African guy from an African dance company. Bey will have an army of like 100 or more girls. 20 of them will be doing the choreography with her and there will be like 100 of them behind her carrying sticks and marching. Men will be used as props and actors with the girls coming all in their faces and intimidating them. Again, the concept wasn't revealed so that's just connecting the dots with the choreography and small information that was given. It definitely looks like Bey will have an army or lesion of girls for one of the scenes that is presumably being shot on the 13th. Expect a full out dance number with lots of choreography."
OMG, this video sounds like it's going to be AWESOME! Can't wait to see Beyonce in it!
Beyonce is spotted in full glam mode on the set of a photoshoot in New Jersey yesterday with Ellen von Unwerth (Mar. 31). It's believed the shoot may be for an upcoming album cover.
Look for a collaboration soon between Beyonce and Diplo. The acclaimed DJ told PopEater he could hardly believe his ears when Jay-Z called requesting his services for his wife:
"During this last year, every day has been another weird thing happening like, 'What's going on?'"
"I can never catch up with what I feel is going on. I just finished working on a record with The-Dream in Las Vegas recently. I had to go back out to LA and then fly back out to Philadelphia for a show with J. Cole. Maybe like in some downtime I'll probably reminisce or write a book about it [laughs]."
