Beyonce’s commitment to a theme is staunch, as is her commitment to not walking on a red carpet. She therefore took the back way into the iHeartRadio Awards, where she was nominated for everything that came before Cowboy Carter but obviously came dressed to promote it. I haven’t heard the album yet because it came out while I was traveling, but I LOVE “Texas Hold ‘Em” so I’m excited to park my metaphorical Lexus and throw my keys up and stick around for the whole thing. Also, Justin Timberlake was there, but whatever.
