Blue Ivy Beyoncé cut herself some hipster bangs earlier this week, reserving her right to upload artsy images that make little sense along with her regular Instagram fair (selfies). Photoshopped vacation pics and snaps in front of private planes are a thing of Bey's Instagram past. Ambiguous sculptures, black and white collages, and a 1967 magazine cover of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton are what embody BeyoncÃ© now. Brace yourself for a Beyoncé /Jay Z mega-mansion coming to a Bushwick near you.
