Beyonce Responds to Pepsi Backlash


Back in December Beyonce came under fire for signing a $50 million deal with Pepsi after formerly aligning herself with First Lady Michelle Obama's get fit campaign [click here if you missed that].

Beyonce responds to the backlash...

From Flaunt Magazine
Some were critical at your participating in a Pepsi campaign after you moved your body for childhood obesity. Where is the balance between your career objectives and your philanthropy?
"Pepsi is a brand I've grown up seeing my heroes collaborate with. The company respects musicians and artistry. I wouldn't encourage any person, especially a child, to live life without balance. When you work out, take care of your body, rehearse as hard as I rehearsed in the commercial, I think it's great to have a Pepsi or Diet Pepsi when you want one. It's all about choices."

Beyonce has a lot of heros. Tina Turner, Patti LaBelle, Donna Summer, Diana Ross, Michelle, Chaka Kahn, Pauletta,Pepsi...Diet Pepsi...

but ok...Flaunt Mag is basically calling her a hypocrite. Her answer was pretty much a weak response and pretty much didn't make sense.

She got a lot of hair weaves to pay for peeps - leave her alone.

I actually agree with her O_O

Her response comes across as rehearsed and robotic.
The words objectives and philanthropy especially were too overwhelming for her to bear. When she heard those words she almost self destructed in 5 seconds. Her PR must be slowly dying of embarrassment for her.

Its all about choices...haha yeah right its all about money...who the hell is going to turn down a 50 million dollar endorsement deal???

Damn! This chick is the Black community's Sarah Palin! Word salad response for an answer to a direct question.

Just admit it Bey. It's all about the money. You can never have enough of it, even though you are a "billionaire"(cough wannabee billionaire cough)
If Coca Cola offered you $51million, you'd flip the script and say that "Coke was a brand you grew up seeing all your heroes collaborate with. The company respects musicians and artistry." You'd even say that it's MORE nurishing than mother's milk if they required you to for and extra million! SMH.

Translation : I do what I want , MJ did it, I'm a grown woman.

$50M is hard to pass up, Pepsi is crazy for that.

I agree with her. I don't keep soda in the house, I love water (with a little fresh lemon, yum). I'm not much of a soda drinker, but I don't mind a little rum and coke every now and then. When I go out, I may have a GingerAle.

It's okay to treat yourself, but drinking it every day, with every meal...not good.

Honey Bun said...

@ 7:50 not only are they rehearsed and robotic , but she took nearly 2-3 months to respond! That's the best she could come up with...

It is about the money with the Carter's. It is what it is. JayZ told her to make that money by any means necessary..her response..okay daddy. I'm tired of looking, talking and seeing the Carter's and Blue Ivy half face and body pictures. Please Carter family go away, retire not to give another person the spotlight because Ri Ri is handling it with you. I just want to get some peace from the media mentioning anything about the Carter's, RiRi and Kanye. Just go away.

At the end of the day people need to learn to make better choices and to teach their children to make better choices. It is all about moderation. Is soda good for you? No. Do I drink soda? No. But that does not mean that it is wrong to have one every few months. If you are drinking or buying something just because a celebrity endorses it, you have issues anyways. You're either going to drink soda or you are not. End of the story.

She's a greedy bish making lots of money and flaunting it. Do you ever hear Mariah singing about " no passengers on my plane, benjies I can't spend" and telling anyone to bow down? No because she has class and she is probably worth more than Beyfool and has achieved more than Beydummy .
This greedy thirsty heffa is just plain old TACKY , GO AWAY BISH!

"...rehearse as hard as I rehearsed in the commercial..."

she was in an actual rehearsal in the commercial?

Finally saw King Bey in concert for the first time ever in New Orleans a few days ago. Her back-up dancers and onstage video imagery are sexier and more exciting than she is. Poor thing even made mention of how hard she had to work to keep the crowd warm. Lots of head whipping, hair swinging, stomping and using her thighs to fan her poo-poo at the crowd. Maybe if Bey drank more PEPSI instead of sipping on TRUE BLOOD, she would be more alive during her shows.

Anonymous said...

The woman is so diplomatic in her responses, nothing fades her. I can truly see Bey going into politics. Maybe an cultural ambassador for the U.S.
Considering all the money she raised to help Obama get re-elected, this should be a no-brainier.

Beyonce is very live in concert. However, a lot lately she been slowing down. But that's life.

Honey Bun said...

I love how this bish stay thinking she works hard! LOL she don't know the meaning of hard work. Entitled bish.

Anonymous said...

How did her answer not make sense? Lmao! Y'all must be illiterate. Balance it out. Eat healthy and still have a Pepsi now and then. You can still enjoy some junk food. It's all about moderation. Michelle Obama's ass who started that whole Move Your Body campaign to fight obesity drinks soda and eats junk food.

dreadee said...

"The company represents musicians and artistry"
artistry: artistic workmanship, ability, or quality

People don't drink Pepsi for artistry.

(sigh) Get it together, B. Money can't buy personality.

I noticed they finally changed the ending of that commercial. I got so tired of hearing what sounded like "CAUSE I POOTED..." lol

They did a terrible job airbrushing out her double chin in this picture. Drink up, Beyoncow. And I already know that can is filled with hard liquor!

She never did answer the question and never intended too. Plus somebody wrote that shit for her. This dumb broad has legions of people sitting around a desk, for the sole purpose of coming up with ideas to keep her relevant. According to SR she's having an affair with one of tatted up back up dancers. I guess she's doin the JHo.

Now is the time for us to stop drinking soda and start drinking more water!

Pepsi is toxic and poisonous. No IT IS NOT GREAT to have a pepsi after a work out, EVER. No fitness instructor, coach or nutritionist would ever recommend a pepsi or any other diabetes inducing soft drink not even for ”once in a while” consumption. Not only did BeyondStoopid NOT answer the question, she continued to hawk and market that liquid rust in a can as a response. PEPSI, COKE is poison and you dont moderate poison with a healthy diet, it makes no sense!

This is all this NOTHING says: I work hard yada yada yada

-----When you work out, take care of your body, rehearse as hard as I rehearsed in the commercial---

Who doesn't work hard, if you work really!!!

nba is fixed said...

^^^^ You are correct! If you put a human tooth into a glass of soda, the tooth will start to decay. Remember, soda contains high fructose corn syrup which can damage your liver. Just say no to drugs and soda!

One hundred years ago, one of the ingredients of Coke was COCAINE! I'm not making this up!

Well her husband proudly boasts about slinging crack to his community and being a ”pimp by blood” so of course she has no problem slinging pepsi in her undies. SMH

You have to remember you're talking about Bey-late-and-a-dollar-short here. The same woman who gave the world the belly shot 13 months after she "gave birth".

Funny, talk about all she says!!!

I noticed that she MUST SAY certain things:

I WORK HARD
I flew......
I learn the dance steps in 15 mins
I only had a week to do......
When I am on tour......

And on top of it she is soo uneducated, her voice in general is HORRIBLE

But as far as Pepsi and the Michelle crap B is just a MONEY HOE.... if you play her to put shit on her face she will:

"FLY OVER IN 15 MINS AND DROP HER TOUR AND WORK SO HARD AT PUTTING SHIT ON HER FACE UNTIL IT BLEEDS ALL IN ONE WEEK"

Try this at home; instead of soap, use Pepsi or Mountain Dew to wash your car. The dirt will come right off. If Pepsi is strong enough to clean dirt off of your car, imagine what it is doing to your body.

@10:15--I hope you didn't play for that concert!!!
You could have watch the B-Experience on youtube for free--


This chick has less than 50 songs in her catalog and she only sings the SAME hand full.

She swings her hair all the time to HIDE that she is lip syncing etc... and if she moves slow she is around 40 years old pretending to be 30 what do you expect.

"It's all about choices"- incomplete sentence to an incomplete mother fucking thought! What is "it" , life , rehearsal, Pepsi? Someone get this bitch a book to read!

So many Bey Haters. Beyonce could do ads for The Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints and she would be stoned. People have been guzzling PEPSI for yearrrrsss with or without a plug from Mrs. Carter yet suddenly everyone on this post is a Poland Spring-aholic. It's sad. Still don't exactly know what this beautiful and lucky in life woman has done to anger Black women so. Sad shit. Also, nba is fixed;You are a real IDIOT if you have actually poured soda on your car to get the dirt off. You must drive a real clunker to risk the chance of ruining your paint job trying to prove such a dickhead point!

What I got out of this post is another way for RWS to generate traffic to this site.
I guess those who are mad about how she sings and "flaunts" her money don't instagram they new shit when they get it.
All this Bey hate is why she will Never Ever EVER go away

Anonymous said...

7:35 AM I disagree. I think she answered the question. To paraphrase, I believe she's saying it's Ok to drink Pepsi and coke in moderation as long as you exercise.

Why do people keep saying others are haters because some of us are just tired of hearing, seeing The Carter's? Enough already.

Nothing is ever off script with her. I wonder how long it took her to memorize her lines?

^^^That's a gottdang lie! Just as many people on Huffington Post are supporting her as those that are jealously throwing hate. Not one of you numbnuts would turn down $50,000,000 for one day's work to film a commercial to endorse a product so y'all can get outta here with that holier-than-thou bs! Go Bey....make that money....and THANKS for supporting our President as much as you did!
