R&B Snippets: Beyonce & Rihanna!
BEYONCÉ SHUTS DOWN GRAND CANYON CAMPSITE FOR MUSIC VIDEO: According to TMZ, Beyoncé shut down the Grand Canyon on Wednesday (June 10th) for a music video. Footage was obtained by the site, which showed Bey and a crew shooting at the Havasu Falls located in the Grand Canyon. Apparently, the camp grounds next to the falls are very exclusive and controlled by the Havasupai tribe who only permit 300 camping passes a day. Thousands of campers are turned down daily, which requires those who are interested in visiting the site to schedule a reservation. Law enforcement officials told TMZ that Bey and her shooting crew arranged the video shoot beforehand, which allowed her about five hours of uninterrupted time. Bey was accompanied by Blue Ivy, and arrived and departed by helicopter.
