Queen B flew to 5th Avenue in New York for some of her meetings with the company and brought cameras along to capture every moment. 

"We are in my favourite city in the whole wide world- New York City. I love, love, love, love this place. I think anyone that knows me knows that I am a big Manhattan girl. I am the happiest when I am in NYC. The Big Apple gives me everything I need - the lights, stimulation, fashion, celebrities, money, people. I just really enjoy coming here," she says in the opening scene of the episode.
