Bey donated her iconic wide-brimmed black hat from the ‘Formation’ tour to help raise money for The Lung Transplant Project — and it sold for a whopping $27,000!

2. President Donald Trump told reporters that Vladimir Putin denied interfering in the 2016 elections during their side-discussions at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit.
