  • Beyoncé was joined by hubby Jay-Z on stage as she performed a Chime For Change gig in London

    Beyoncé and Jay-Z raised the roof at the Chime For Change charity gig in London on Saturday night, after making a surprise appearance together on stage.

    The crowds went wild as the rapper stepped out mid-way through Beyoncé’s 45-minute set, for a rare joint performance with his wife.


    Barely heard above the screams, Jay-Z made his appearance as Bey belted out Crazy In Love to the 50,000-strong audience.

    Hitting the stage just in time for his part, the rapper put on an unusual display of affection as he arrived, kissing beaming Beyoncé and draping his arm around her during the song.

    ‘Everyone went crazy when he appeared on stage. It was so sweet when he kissed her, you could tell they were still so in love,’ one crowd member revealed.

    Putting paid to recent pregnancy rumours, Beyoncé looked slimmed than ever as she hit the stage in a long-sleeved, leather ensemble, managing to pack in no fewer than three costume changes during the show.

    Heading a line-up which included performances from Jennifer Lopez, Ellie Goulding, John Legend and Florence and the Machine, and appearances from Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, James Franco and Jessica Chastain, Beyoncé was clearly passionate about the cause.

    ‘Because of you all, we have raised more than $4 million,’ the emotional starlet told the crowds.

    ‘Women’s rights, it’s something that has always been something close to my heart. I know now – being a mother – it is really important that I can do what I can and use my voice.’

    No sooner has Beyoncé stepped off the stage, than it was back on a private plane to New York.

    The very next day, the songstress and her hubby were spotted back in their home city, and stepping out for a low-key movie date.

    Flaunting her fabulous pins in tiny leather shorts, a white t-shirt, blazer and black hat, Beyoncé stayed close to Jay-Z as they left a theatre in NY.

    Even superstars are allowed a bit of downtime every once in a while…
