Her music sucks, her dance moves are weird. She isn't pretty. She's just an all-around unlikeable person. I have no idea what the hype is about.
You can say a lot of things about her, but you can't say that she isn't pretty. Because she is.
R2, look a an old pic of Beyonce , say before 2003, she looks very average.
The line starts back here, kid.
And you're just figuring this out? She's the phoniest phony ever. Hate her.
And once she heard about you, she cried all the way to the bank.
I watched Obsession on BET today because I don't like basketball. I was surprised by how ordinary and unremarkable she looked. Bags under her eyes, bad weave, dead eyes. And the acting was just as rough. The movie is a mess but at least I had fun listing how many words she mispronounced. Ask is ass. Just is juss. Assed for asked. Mah for my. Is for it's. Yore for your.It went on and on. What a dumb hick.
put me on the list
I think she's a good entertainer, but she seems like she would be prissy and boring in real life.
Her new single, "Bow Down Bitches" isn't helping her either.
People accuse Britney of being all marketing hype but (just see that other thread) but Beyonce has never truly been able to connect with an audience without the help of massive amounts of pr. There is no "there" there.
She looks like the female body builder character Wanda, on In Living Color.
OMG... that photoshop might beat Rosie's for best EVER!
She's not a great singer like an Aretha or Whitney. I hate her whiny voice.
If you want to see some serious Beyonce hatin', go to urban blog Hollywood Street King.com
The people there will say nothing but horrible things about her all day everyday. They genuinely believe that she and Shawn Carter are satanic.
You can say her music sucks (tastes vary) but she is undoubtedly beautiful and a good dancer. Her dances have become part of culture. Give it up, OP. There are much less talented people you can hate on.
Her dancing is mediocre, she doesn't choreograph either. Pre-nosejob, she was average. Her entire look is pretty fake. Fake hair, looking much lighter even right after being in the sun during a vacation (that's bleaching folks). She's ghetto and no amount of money will change that. She's what 30? She's had laugh lines for year, I'm sure she'll start on fillers soon.
The racist trolls are back
She's also ignorant. Ever hear her speak?
Fantasia just might be more educated and refined than Beyonce.
racist! racist! La,la,la,la,la....

Oh, look, it's britbot!
Her old dance teacher will be the first to tell you she wasn't the greatest of dancers, although she wasn't hopeless. When the dance teacher heard Beyonce sing she encouraged her to go in that direction.
I remember this because it surprised me Beyonce had ever had dance lessons at all. She's a very jerky, stilted dancer. She has rhythm but not an iota of grace.
r2 could not be more correct or reasonable.
Beyonce is not a lot of things, but not pretty is not one of them.
You people are insane. She's beautiful, and her dancing is breathtaking and I love her voice. Did you ever see her SNL performance? Perfect. The footage someone shot on their phone and put on youtube of her rehearsing a cappella in her dressing room before she performed on American Idol? Just watch those and if you still think as you do, I won't argue, there will be no convincing.
Never liked her. Much prefer Solange. At least she seems to know who she is.
R27, Beyonce never goes anywhere without her full Photoshop.
I used to like her and her music, but in recent years her voice and music has become lame and her dance moves are incredibly cheap. I will remember her as the shallow low brow celeb who dared to lip-sync at the presidential inauguration. That's all
Her stinking rich ugly husband is the epitome of overrated. His career is fading too since he is working with insufferable douche bags like Timberfake now.
Her husband really is ugly. I'm sorry, but he is.
I like her music, but I think she's a vapid cunt with few redeeming qualities.
I don't hate her, I just don't think about her.
She's pretty enough, and she is another one of these marketing phenoms. Destiny's Child would've been a forgettable girl group except they decided to market Beyonce, using sex as a hook, in an in your face way with a lot a glitz and hype.
She's an entertainer. From what I've heard she puts on a good show. Seeing it won't change your life. Her choreography is mediocre but it works for her. When I compare her to someone like say, Pink, who puts on an amazing concert, there is no comparison.
Beyonce sings catchy tunes that are very commercial and whoever designed her entire program of appeal needs to be the one who is lionized. She just shows up.
OP, believe me - you're not the only one who doesn't like her. She's a year older than me, so I've had to hear about this dumb bitch ever since I was in high school when she was in Destiny's Child.
I guess the black community just likes her as their token black girl since she's bleached out and weaved out. Just like with Diana, Janet, and Mariah - they seem to prefer light skinned black female singers. They've never supported someone that looks like Grace Jones.
Yes, but of all those you mentioned Mariah has real talent. Serious vocal abilities. Mariah has an amazing voice. Beyonce can't touch Mariah.
I put Beyonce on the same level as JLo. Neither will overwhelm you with vocal talent. Except IMO, JLo is a much better dancer. Better actress too.
Mariah Carey can't sing live. She is the product of studio techniques and an excessive PR machine.
At least Beyonce was able to sing live during her early career.
Because it's been at least 20 minutes since you all got to vent your spleens on the last Beyonce hate thread.
She's a cunt.
Good for you OP want a jar full of freshly baked chocolate cookies for not liking a popular singer? You don't like her don't listen to her, support her or buy her music.
Her dancing looks like she's trying to beat up a little person with her ass.
Her voice grates on my nerves, so much that I've never actually been able to watch her long enough to know if she's a good dancer or not. As an actress, I've only seen her in Dreamgirls. She's pretty, but not beautiful.
R21. Help me understand. If you don't like someone that is black you are automatically a racist?
It's sad that she started bleaching her skin and wearing copious amount of blonde wigs/weaves. She now looks Latina/white
I liked beyonce in the early days of her career when she was black and singing with DC
She still had a nosejob in those early DC days. Solange is actually better looking.
Have you told your mother, OP?
I don't think I've ever heard one of her songs, and I probably wouldn't recognize her if I passed her on the street. She's kind of a non-entity to me.
I think all the black awful singer princesses are in freefall with their sales these days.
Rihanna is probably the tops but her last album did not sell all that well, she reached #1 with Unapologetic but only 238k, so...who knows how many it's sold now.
Something will take their place, I'm hearing that they want to promote rock music again and I'm really hoping they do.
One thing you can say about her: bitch can dance in heels!
[quote]You can say a lot of things about her, but you can't say that she isn't pretty. Because she is.
No, no, she's not. Not without a ton of help from hair and makeup, that is.
Just look at Dreamgirls, Beyonce is absolutely hideous in that film. Jennifer Hudson, otoh, is naturally pretty.
Look, Britney Spears tries to be genuine, and she's not fake. So, before you start saying, "Oh, look at the Britney Bot" don't assume that you know everybody, and their motives.
ROFLMAO @ R41!
She wuz in mah houze? Wit mah CHILE?
Beyonce, Obsessed's high powered career woman
[quote]Her stinking rich ugly husband is the epitome of overrated. His career is fading too since he is working with insufferable douche bags like Timberfake now.
You are right about Jay-Zzzzz, but totally wrong about Justin Timberlake....did you hear his new album? It's phenomenal.
What bothers me about Jay-Zzzzz (besides getting rich for having no talent) is his involvement with the illuminati. I hope it's false rumors, but we shall see.
r49 that's not dancing that's gyrating her pussy.
Jennifer Hudson is ugly as sin. Beyonce could actually look decent if she toned down that ridiculous hip/ass thing she's got going on. It looks good on some women, but not her; not to mention the trying-extra-hard way she walks. Her voice is, and has always been, rotten. Disgusting technique, if you can call it that.
However, she really is an amzing dancer in my opinion. She has mastered the art of replicating anything that moves (better than her). That's the only thing one can't deny her.
Her "dancing" consists of stomping around and wiggling her hips. Big deal.
She's a wannabe Tina Turner, but Tina actually had good songs that are still remembered today.
Stop. Beyond has presence. And star quality. Deal with it.
R60, there will always be those that like a particular person and those that don't. I never liked beyonce for anything except her dancing...btw - I feel the same about elvis as everyone on this thread does about beyonce. It's life and we are all entitled to our opinions.
Bossy Bottom AKA r60 has spoken.
Of COURSE OP can say Beyonce isn't pretty; "pretty" is subjective. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
I agree; I don't see it either. Perhaps Destiny's Child was interesting when it first started; rendolent of The Supremes for some people? Kinda, sorta?
I would give Beyonce props for work ethic, discipline, making something of herself. And she's probably not any more deluded than other entertainers in thinking she's "all that." (and a documentary???? "Mary!" doesn't begin to say it!
SHe was pretty good in "Dreamgirls", too.
I don't know if I would dislike her as much if we were not bombarded by her kamikaze P.R, machine on a daily basis. Just today, in the New York Daily News, there is a page long article written by their idiot music critic, Jim Farber, about Rush Limbaugh's comment that her newest single is anti-feminist. Not in the entertainment section of the paper, mind you, but the second page. Of course, it was accompanied by a photo of her doing a shoot for H&M in the Bahamas. Enough with this bitch! I hope she runs into a few of those Big Pimpin' bitches JayZzz was so fond of hanging with when he went there with his niggas.
anybody read online the rumors she and Jayz are Satanists?
R64, I agree. A day of peace would be nice. If she is, R65, more power to her, but could she please do it where no one can bear witness to it. Ever.
I can't believe someone is seriously trying to claim that Mariah was the "product of studio techniques." Bitch could definitely sing live back in the day.
Beyonce's face has no bone structure. She's done the best she can with it but she's by no means a classic beauty. Her sister got all the looks and talent in that family.
Beyonce is also similar to Madonna in that she's incapable of anything approaching vulnerability. She's completely hard boiled.
She had a few good pop tunes with Destiny's like Independent Women and Bootylicious (I hope Stevie Nicks made a ton in royalties off of that) but most her solo stuff is eminently forgettable. Her solo career consists of Crazy In Love and a novelty hen party song. Her success is mostly based on PR overdrive.
She has regressed musically. Her first album was her best. Crazy in Love & Naughty Girl are R&B/dancefloor classics and Dangerously in Love and Me, Myself, & I are timeless slow jams. None of her later offerings measure up in quality.
Single Ladies sounds like a playground jumprope chant. It's supposed to be her most successful song but it's such a shitty tune.
Well R69 and that just proves my point: if my life depended on it I couldn't tell you what those other songs sound like.
Rihanna has no talent and hardly any self-respect but she is much more likable than Beyonce. Ri's self-depreciating sense of humor is refreshing. Her catty tweets are to die for. She constantly is cursing out her haters or conversing with her fans on Instagram/Twitter. She admits that she loves to troll blogs. It's obvious she is just this unassuming young woman who doesn't believe in her own hype. She even said she doesn't have that much talent, and that she just got by on pure luck and that she hopes to just ride out this wave until the end. Her likability and carefree attitude is precisely why producers seem to save their best work for her.
Me Myself and I 2003
I wouldnt like Beyonce either if I was only familiar with the pop stuff she has done in the last few years, its not as musically notable as her earlier solo stuff off the first two albums
Rihanna gets big PR boosts from selling her sick relationship to Chris Brown to the media. She is beyond disgusting! Because of greedy idiots like her we have a rape culture.
She's like Kraft cheese. Over processed and extremely popular.
WTF are you doing reading the Daily News, R64? Are you 102 years old?
DL is filled with racist, elderly cunts.
Rihanna is prettier, but Beyonce really is a pretty woman. Beyonce is also very talented, but I do think it was a little dirty the way Destiny Child was basically a conduit for Beyonce to reach superstardom. With Papa Knowles at the helm, he other girls in the group never had a chance.
Do you really think your post is going to wound or shut me up, r75? I read the News because I ride the subway and it allows me to ignore you phony, fauxsters who insist on living in Brooklyn but can't seem to stay away from the East Village. Go back to Bumfucke, son.
I like that song too, R72, but her voice just ruins everything. The same song sung by a tone deaf person would appeal to me more than what she does with it. Maybe it's just her basic education drawl.
While I am personally not a fan, you people are overly brutal on the girl. Cmon, you are judging someone by his or her regionalisms and accents? Really? And her dancing has a lot of roots in the African dances that Blacks have inherited. Sorry if you want her to waltz around and fox trot but I can appreciate her dancing as a Black person. She has paid homage to Josephine Baker in her Deja Vu video, her Run The World (Girls) video featured two male dancers from Africa who taught her those indigenous moves she did. Her single Ladies video paid homage to Fosse and his dancing style. I am ot saying she is the greatest dancer but please not be so narrow minded about her dancing, it is really insulting to me as a Black person when you dismiss it as mere booty popping
R80 I think people are over brutal because of Bey's PR machine, it's been on over drive lately. It's a pop culture gag reflex of sorts in action.
Anyway, I think R68 sums up her shortcomings perfectly. She is a lot like Madonna in that oversly self-conscious, calculated sense; she's also relied on PR and capitalizing off of 're-imagined' dance trends to stay on top.
She's ripe for Ru Paul's Snatch Game. In the mean time here's a dead on impersonation.
Not sure why people say Beyonce is "ghetto." Is it because of her accent/pronunciation? She certainly didn't grow up in any ghetto, that's for sure.
r82 that is some funny shit! Loved it! That woman who did the parody is dead on and funny as hell!
That's the irony R83, she didn't grow up poor, not even close. It's too bad her Dad was encouraging her to shake her booty instead of attending class. Wendy was right, sounds like she got a fifth grade education and not at a good school either.
Her diction is awful. That, in addition to how unintelligent she comes across, is probably why she rarely gives interviews. Her interview on 60 Minutes only happened because she was expected to clean up during the Grammy's an hour later. She didn't understand some of the questions. Strenth..... there's no g in there for Queen Bey. Anyone who glues a blonde wig to their head is ghetto to me, even if the wig/weave cost 10000$.
That "Life Is But A Dream" parody was fucking hilarious!
She looks like a busted Soprano goomah. One of Christophah's whooahs.
Her special almost made me cancel HBO.
I finally broke down and watched the HBO "schlockumentary". It didn't make me like her any better. As a matter of fact, I kind of feel sorry for her. She is a text book narcissist. And what ever charm she does possess goes right out the window when she opens her mouth. It is really difficult to listen to her talk, not only for her poor diction and elocution, but she really has nothing of interest to say. She's Black Barbie. She can carry a tune but she is hardly a great "artiste" and she invites all the hate aimed her way when she attempts to pass off her country bumpkin "philosophy" as insightful and profound. She sounds like a graduate of The Oprah Winfrey New Age Academy of Mediocre Minds. Madame Blavatsky she's not. She's a singing mannequin and when her looks start to go and her age catches up with her she will be one disillusioned and bitter, albeit rich, bitch. BTW, the parody of the HBO show is crazy good and only shores up the notion that Beyonce' is hardly an original. But thass is juss my opinon.
Well I’m a fan, but not a deluded stan. She is as fake as a Jackson, can barely string a sentence together, is uneducated and it shows. The song stealing and fake songwriting credits also rankle.
But other than that, she’s really the new Queen of the gays these days. She’s like a new Miss Ross and kind of replaced Janet Jackson whose fans are very resentful toward her, here is someone after all who can actually sing.
Entertainment wise she’s unrivalled, though her shows go on the cheesy Babs side at times she’s the only vocal diva who’s the complete package – singing, dancing and stage presence a la Tina Turner. If she lips at times who cares, all these types of acts do at some point and she really puts on a show.
It all comes down to the music though, Destiny’s Child had their moments but the solo career was a lot better starting with the all time classic “Crazy in Love” which set off her path to domination.
First album was patchy other than that but B’Day is one of the best pop albums of the 00s. It has loads of live instruments and great r&b bangers which always work for spring/summer music.
Sasha Fierce also good and the last one 4 in some ways the most interesting yet; it was baffling and took ages to grow on you but yet again another winner. Only Rihanna gave her competition, she really has the songs and perhaps displaced her recently.
And of course Queen B brings the glam, the most beautiful of all the divas. Anyone who says she isn’t pretty must have some kind of low lying mental illness.
[quote]and kind of replaced Janet Jackson whose fans are very resentful toward her
gurl, you tried it!
Give it a fucking rest, OP.
[quote]kind of replaced Janet Jackson whose fans are very resentful toward her
Ha! Nice try, darlin'. No Janet fan is resentful towards Beyonce, namely because B has gone out of her way over the years to give proper respect to Janet for paving the way--most recently in her HBO documentary. Janet helped to build the house Miss Carter performs in.
