Brace Yourself! Beyonce Is Collaborating With Laverne Cox on New Project
Laverne Cox has revealed that she is working on a mysterious project with Beyonce Knowles. During an interview with Access Hollywood on Tuesday, August 22, the “Orange Is the New Black” star confirmed that the project is currently in the works and will be revealed next month.
Asked about the unexpected collaboration, the 45-year-old actress shared, “I have no idea, to be perfectly honest. I’m like, does she pick out her biggest fans ever and let them work with her? It’s pretty amazing.” Unfortunately, the details about the project are still under wraps.
Laverne later took to Twitter to share with fans the exciting news. “Yes it’s true,” she wrote. “I am collaborating with @beyonce on a new project. #QueenBey herself. More details Sept. 6. #Beyonce #TransIsBeautiful.”
It is no secret that Laverne is a huge fan of Beyonce. The two met for the first time at the Grammy Awards earlier this year. The actress previously said of the emotional moment, “Many times I imagined meeting Beyonce and every time I imagined it I was in tears and I was like, ‘Oh my God, I cannot like freak out and cry.’ But it’s amazing when you meet the queen and calm covers you.”
“I walked over and I was strangely calm and she was sitting there and everyone was surrounding her–because she’s Beyonce and she’s the queen,” she added. “And then she saw me and her face lit up, and she was like, ‘Help me up!’–she’s pregnant so she needed some help up. I was like, ‘I’ll help you up,’ and she got up and gave me a big hug.”
Many fans assume the mysterious project is a musical collaboration, as Beyonce was said to hit the studio again shortly after giving birth to her twin children. “Beyonce is already hard at work, having the twins has inspired her,” a source revealed. “She has been recording new material and is planning a surprise tour for her fans too–expect an announcement soon. She is more determined than ever and feels inspired by having her babies recently.”
“Beyonce has hired nannies to help with the twins and she’s been writing and recording new material while working hard to get back in shape,” the source continued. “There is no way she is going to step away for a few years to raise her kids that is not on her agenda at the moment, she’s raring to go again.” In addition, the pop diva will allegedly assist her husband Jay-Z on his tour in support of “4:44” this fall.
