Singer-songwriter Beyonce Knowles has sparked outrage for her ‘nipple’ body suit that she wore during a performance recently. Beyonce fuelled controversy by wearing a risqué costume on the first night of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. Performing in Belgrade, Serbia, the Grammy winner wore a gold-sequined costume with nipple details.

Meanwhile, the American pop star also seems to have lost a great friend in US President Barack Obama, who has distanced himself from her and her rapper husband, Jay-Z.  This comes in the wake of the couple’s trip to Cuba this month, which raised questions on if they had proper government clearance for the trip.

Jay-Z responded to these queries with a song that didn’t go down well with White House authorities when they were asked about it. Obama said in a TV show, “I wasn’t familiar that they were taking the trip...My understanding is, I think, they went through a group that organises these educational trips down to Cuba. You know, this is not something the White House was involved with. We’ve got better things to do.”
