I don't mind her showing off her lovely figure. I just think she's vacuous.
In other news, the earth is round.
All these pop stars are...
As if that lovely figure weren't photoshopped to death, slimming those thunder thighs and fat ass.
Oh, and she is also so brainy and humble.
[quote]The 'Single Ladies' singer added, "I now know that, yes, I am powerful. I'm more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand."
The cover photo is definetly photoshopped. DO they think we're stupid?
That pose would look weird even if it weren't photoshopped to death.
Datalounge still hating black women with extra fierceness! How dare Beyonce be celebrated when we have anorexic white actresses to worship!
r11, give it a rest.
That picture is photoshopped within an inch of its life!
JC, can this attention whore just go away already?
I am Seriously contemplating not watching the Super Bowl just so I don't have to see her ugly ass.
Besides, I don't care which team will play.
I HATE that she whores herself for Pepsi as well. I love Pepsi but might not drink any more of it.
She's doing the Presidential Inauguration (again!) and the Super Bowl. Talk about an overkill.
Yes, R13, the attention whore will go away when everyone stops paying attention. Sadly, that won't happen as long as there is money to be made.
HOW MANY TIMES DO WE HAVE TO SAY THIS SHE DID NOT HAVE A BABY AND THAT IS NOT HER BODY EITHER PLZ GIVE US A BREAK.
Her last cd didn't do very well. She is probably threaten by Rihanna hence the photoshopped cover.
Beyonce pretty much has the best natural curves out of any female celeb.
And please dont call her a whore. She is virginal compared to the dick sluts we have here. And she has been faithful to a camel for over 10 years. Cut her some slack.
I know what a thigh gap is, R27, and Bouncy definitely does NOT have one. The friction generatd by her thighs rubbing together could power Los Angeles for 6 months.
She is FIERCE. top of the world. I'm guessing she has a new cd coming out and i, for one, cant freaking wait.
she always squashes all the other pop acts at awards shows, so I'm hoping she puts this shit out before music awards season.
I don't keep up with her personal life, but as a pop act, these other girls, and guys, just don't bring it like she does.
Try not to laugh at this short video.
r22 fucking jesus!!! :@ what a rotten mouth bitch! and fugly too. her pussy is the only good thing about her because we cant see it.
as for beyonce.. they photshopped the inside of her thighs. there is no gap between her thunder thighs.
and no body really cares to see her pouty sex face any way... washup past it and so 2000's.. that's why she is ressurecting the zombie corpse of destiny's child.. at least some people still like kelly rowland.
yap she is total whore i got more lubetons and vettons then she do
R32, it's easy not to laugh when you post a stinky linky.
She looks like a nasty ho.
This is the type of stuff Rihanna does.
I can't stand beyawnce but would have expected better.
When you get to her level you just don't degrade yourself like a $2 ho.
She looks like a bitch out of hustlers beaver hunt.
She has been taking Ghetto pics for a while now.
It ain't cute.
r29 your daddy would love to lay his pipe between them thighs to reach Beyonce's sugar walls. That's something you sissies on here know nothing about. Keep swallowing milky loads, Nancy.
Since when has Beyawnce had a gap.
Even those ugly back pics that she refuses photographers to take never showed her as having a gap.
Have we discussed this:
***Beyoncé has to remind herself of just how much (and why, and how) she rules the world. To that end, the pop star keeps a meticulous, borderline-crazy sounding “archive room” in her midtown Manhattan office.
According to a GQ article: "There, across from the narrow conference room in which you are interviewing her, is another long, narrow room that contains the official Beyoncé archive, a temperature-controlled digital-storage facility that contains virtually every existing photograph of her, starting with the very first frames taken of Destiny’s Child, the ’90s girl group she once fronted; every interview she’s ever done; every video of every show she’s ever performed; every diary entry she’s ever recorded while looking into the unblinking eye of her laptop.
In a sample “diary entry” she urges herself to embrace her fears: “Stop pretending that I have it all together. If I’m scared, be scared, allow it, release it, move on. I think I need to go listen to ‘Make Love to Me’ and make love to my husband.” She also obsessively studies tapes of her performances, critiquing every last detail, and employs a “visual director” who has followed her around 16 hours a day since 2005, recording nearly her every move, and keeps the tapes in a collection “loosely modeled on NBC’s library.”***
Beyonce Reveals She Has A Room Dedicated To Herself, In GQ Interview

No, she's never made any acknowledgment of her gay fans (if she has any) and she & her hubby are known to be homophobes, tacky ones.
She's a mildly talented performer who has way too much money to spend on publicists. I'm sure that somewhere in this country are straight men who wouldn't mind fucking her once or twice but she hardly makes top of the list. GQ calling her the sexiest woman of the 21st century is laughable and the fact that she goes along with it just goes to show you how delusional she is about herself and her place in the world.
I think r44 hit the nail on the head.
Why do I always think of Gypsy Rose Lee when I hear Beyonce sing?
wow...haters are everywhere...are you guys mad about the color of their skin or the weight of their money...haha
[quote]"I now know that, yes, I am powerful. I'm more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand."
She seems to have mistaken Jay Z's power for her own.
Yes, many concepts are too much for her mind to digest and understand. She is beyond vapid and she is dull. She is attractive, she can sing well enough. The people behind her, first her parents and Jay Z, knew how to promote and package her.
She is entering Michael Jackson territory of solipsism.
[quote]And she has been faithful to a camel for over 10 years. Cut her some slack.
Are they still best friends with Gwyneth Paltrow?
We knew this about a decade ago. Getting upset every time a pop star acts like an attention whore must be exhausting.
Beyonce is not a whore. She is my friend and we have a lot of laughs together and a lot of money.
We are lovely.
They sure did a good job of shaving all that jello off of her thighs
R40 Wow! Whoreoncé is more delusional than I thought.
R40 is indeed Letoya! I wouldnt be surprised if LaTavia and Farrah are posting on this thread too.
Anyway, the way Beyonce handles career reminds me a lot of a star athlete, especially after reading that she watches videos of her performances to critique herself. I think Matthew Knowles didnt think he was going to have a son. He raised his daughters and Kelly like he would boys, with the sports mentality. Thats why the others girls quit, he was very aggressive demanded perfection from them at an early age. I see Beyonce turned out not to be much different from dad.
Fuck you r22 now I've got "Pussy good. Pussy sweet. . ." Stuck in my head.
Dope beat though.
I'm Black and I was sick of Bey Bey a long time ago. One reason she is so hyped is because of her connection to Jay Z. Jay Z gets some juice from her and from his own career and vice versa for her.
It is time for the powers to come up with some other state sanctioned performers. Bey, Ri Ri and all the others we have gotten a steady diet of for the last decade or so are played out. Totally sick of them.
Oh and they can take Minaj with them too.
R58, Kelly is Mathew's daughter with the help.
Rihanna has better looks and is still young and putting out the hits. Minaj is peeking right now. Bey is OVER. I don't see her making a comeback. I have no idea why the media loves her so much. Bey also puts up with serial cheating. I hate the show they put on for the public.
People are just steamed that she stole all the thunder from the chubby blonde hick with the inbred eyes. You know the one whom all these gay men with such "great taste" turned into a international superstar. And who has now been reduced to saying a few words on a reality show every week?
I can guarantee you Beyonce won't be reduced to picking her ass and smelling her fingers in ten years time.
Couldn't agree with you more R63. These racist white fag ass queens hate Beyonce for one reason and one reason only. She's a beautiful, successful Black woman and these hating fag asses can't stand it. If it was some white bitch like Britney they would be going on about how fabulous she is. Fucking racist haters can all just die of jealousy.
R64 You need your meds.
It's not racism. I just think after years of being exposed to "limited" talent, to say it nicely, people aren't used to a star who can actually bring the goods.
You don't prefer her, fine. But to say she's not pretty or has no talent is clearly ridiculous.
[quote]People are just steamed that she stole all the thunder from the chubby blonde hick with the inbred eyes.
Well, I'd hardly call Taylor Swift chubby.
I think she's pretty but, yes, vacuous and I haven't really ever heard anything she's done except that Single Girls video which was horrendous. She may indeed be able to sing(??) but that one video made me question her selections.
Rihanna is more bankable than Bey. She is younger hotter and more relevent. Minaj is out doing her too. Bey had her time. She is now washed up.
I don't like Rihanna at all. As with Beyonce, I really haven't heard any of her songs but she comes across as really trashy and going back to that woman beater revealed a lot about her. At least Beyonce seems sweet but dim. I could be wrong though.
r69 Rihanna is going to go the way of Whitney Houston if she keeps it up with Chris Brown.
OP = Michelle
To me, Beyonce is a good performer and I like a lot of her music as it is catchy and danceable an good for my exercise playlist.
However, I do agree that she comes across as vapid and shallow in her interviews. You can tell she has been coached to say the "right" things since she was a teenager. I also think her parents encouraged her showbiz aspirations more than her education and schooling, because she doesn't come across as worldly or sophisticated at all. Britney Spears was the same way to me, but she could get away with it more for a number of reasons. A star of Beyonce's stature cannot be too political or controversial nowadays. The right-wing culture of the US would turn on her in an instant if she gets too "uppity". She won't be singing or writing a "Rhythm Nation 1814"-style album soon.
One of the reasons why there hasn't been an heir apparent to Beyonce in terms of a pop/r&b superstar is not only due to a more fragmented music industry, but Bey and her handlers tendency to sabotage the careers of other up and coming [Black female] artists who are considered a "threat" to her. Rihanna slipped under the radar and became too profitable for Jay-Z/Def Jam before Bey's team could really fuck with her career. She also stays in the studio and constantly releases music. Rihanna is trashy and ratchet, but her team knows what works on the radio and in the club, but I think the poor woman is going to burn out soon.
Mathew Knowles was notorious for his behind-the-scenes tactics, and they continue on with Bey's people herself. Stories of her taking songwriting credits are well-known -One of the reasons why her musical output has declined is because a lot of songwriters refuse to work with her. Her first solo album was nearly flawless as Pop-R&B albums go. In spite of her hits after that, its been downhill ever since.
Her tendency to keep producers and writers working on her projects to keep them away from other competing singers who have deadlines (and have to settle for lesser known producers) and obligations to record companies is another shady tactic that her team does. Beyonce was marketed as "America's Black Barbie Doll" much like Whitney Houston was in the 80's, and she has held onto this image with a ruthless iron fist, and any singer who is a threat to her crown is put on the backburner. Remember Amerie, Ciara, Mya, and any number of female R&B artists that may have had some mainstream potential? Not many people do.
I agree with what a lot of what you said r73. I actually liked her second album B'Day a lot. She recorded that album in secret, so she got to be herself for the most part. It actually sounds like black girl from Texas would sing and write those songs. The rest of stuff she has put out is contrived pop and not as believable.
I think Beyonce will always be massively successful, even if mainstream USA turns on her. She has the most hardcore base of fans ever, besides Madonna and Janet. I remember watching video of her and Alicia Keys shooting a never released music video in Brazil a few years ago. The crowds of people trying to get glimpse of her were out of control. Streets of people. Only Michael Jackson caused that kind of uproar when was living.
I think the world is taken with her because she is a beautiful curvy woman, who manages to shake and gyrate her body like no one else can, but you dont feel like she is being vulgar after. A sex symbol.
[quote]who manages to shake and gyrate her body
a true talent no doubt
Her "singing" sounds like hollering.
You just noticed, OP? A total waste of space when it comes to talent. Pretty? Yes, but so are Kim Kardashian and Britney. She has the best PR shill around.
She peaked with Single Ladies. Nothing she's done musically since has matched its commercial or cultural success despite releasing a steady stream of singles the past several years. Rihanna is the reigning r&b diva now.
I want to start a Black People Who Hate Beyonce club.
I am the Rosa Parks of Bey haters.
Black people that hate Beyonce: haters, Janet stans!
Egads R78. Single Ladies sucked ass. I hope she goes out with a better song than that.
Rihanna will never take Beyonce's place because black people are about the ass and she almost has white-girl-ass (i.e. flat). Also, she's not the best singer or dancer.
Beyonce may not have Janet's moves or Whitney's voice, but at least she's a good enough dancer and a decent singer making her the best all-around performer since Michael Jackson. And she's the kind of gorgeous, curvy woman straight guys like, not those anorexics forced on the public by gay men in the fashion industry.
Rhianna can't sing a note, HEL-LO?
I remember her shaking her big ass jello thighs all over the stage at the Grammies with Justin Timberlake some years ago. That magazine cover is photoshopped within an inch of its life.
And her fans? Mental illness on parade. They make Madonna and Janet fans look normal.
