Over the weekend, the 'Love on Top' singer gave her first performance since the birth of her daughter in January this year, telling fans she had worked hard to get back into shape.

"Y'all have no idea how hard I worked,” the 30-year-old told her fans. "I had to lose 60 pounds. They had me on that treadmill, eating lettuce!"

Beyonce's hard work was evident as she took to the stage in a number of custom made Ralph & Russo outfits, including an array of hot-pants and matching tops that revealed her newly toned figure.

The Memorial Day weekend concert series was held at the Revel Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and was attended by her husband, Jay-Z, who watched on from the wings on Saturday night. Jay-Z (real name Shawn Carter) took to Twitter in support of his wife, tweeting: "'I'm gonna say this and then I'm gonna end mine.' BEYONCE is the best performer in the world. Period."

Beyonce's first performance since 2011 was also attended by first lady Michelle Obama and her two daughters, Sasha, 10, and Malia, 13, who were spotted busting a move to some of the songs.

The singer performed a number of her biggest hits, including 'Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)', 'If I Were A Boy' and 'Crazy in Love'. She also paid tribute to Whitney Houston by performing 'I Will Always Love You' and Donna Summers whose song 'Love To Love You Baby' was sampled on her track 'Naughty Girl', both of whom passed away this year.

    That's so strange! It takes new mums almost a year to properly and sensibly shift the baby weight, even when breasfeeding. And lets face it yu are so tired how can you possibly spend 2 hours everyday on a treadmill eating lettuce?!! You would drop down dead! And Beyonce she emerges 2 weeks after giving birth, slimmer than before..mmm conspircy theories anyone?

    Sorry but no opportunity to comment on the whale article. Why are people outraged? I think the guy's an idiot because he is going to smell pretty off for a while. However, what's the big deal? The whale was decomposing! I am outraged that a young man lost his life while out with friends.

    The light from her other side is not so flattering, even though it's her outfit. Makes it look like she needs some maintenance!!!!!!!!!

    Of course she looks the same as she did prior to birth! The Surrogate mother is the one with stretch marks and saggy titties! Why else would that golliwog jayz buy the entire floor of the hospital for privacy!??
