She works hard for the money, so hard for it honey, she works hard for the money so you better treat her right!
Kudos to her, but she needs a break.
smh, she must owe alot of money. I see a breakdown happening very very soon
JayZ is working this bitch till the wheels fall off!!She probably knows this is her last chance to make a $1 before what's left of her career is completely finished. Must be some large debts!!!
Waiting for the stampede of Welfare Queens...
Someone posted this exact info in the last Beyonce post and Snitch read it and reported it like they came up with it on their own!!!Gurl BYE!
@9:15 am you must be one if you are sitting waiting for them
This, and the last post she had with BIC, has me utterly convinced she is:1. Borderline Insane2. Desperate3. Deeply IndebtedWhy in the HELL would someone who supposedly has so many Benji's, she can't spend 'em, tour this much? This is insane!
It's clear the Farters need the money. recently there was a post about bey being upset that her and jay would be on tour at the same time and now her tour has been extended once again.also, i guess this is the only way she can stay relevant since it's obvious she not going to be releasing a cd anytime soon.i know in marriages there are difficulties but a marriage CAN NOT flourish or grow when the people barely see each other. talking on the phone, a great marriage does not make. this marriage has been over for quite some time (ask tina k, she knows).
More shows, yet no new music. I don't get it.
Poor Blue. Her mom hasn't taken any real time off since she was born. I guess Bey will do anything to avoid staying home and being a real mother. She will regret it one day.
If she kill over on stage of being worn out its all Rihanna fault. Beyonce has been Traumatized, because Rihanna crossed the 100 million mark.She feel she have got to try to double that ,to be the Queen, she is supposed to be ,and she have got to try and really impress Pepsi.Then since ashes touring on "4" she is also trying to show her dad,that the album she dropped without him ,still did very good,without him.
Haha, 9:56 I feel you, but the thing about it is...its still ALL Bey's fault. She is *supposed* to be a mature, grown woman who I would think, with all of her successes, would be content and settled enough within herself to happily relinquish the crown to a younger starlet now. I know I would! Most people would be like, "Okay, I've done enough, things have changed, I'm gonna go over here and chill now, and just find other endeavors and relax and enjoy my family and money!" Most people when they hit 30 DONT WANT to be with the "young, in crowd" because their values are on some different shit, and generally they are no longer impressed or pressed to be in on the shit that the young crowd is into...usually by 30 your interests and values are way too sophisticated to even have the *desire* to run or compete with the younger crowd.
Something is not right with her working constantly. This is beyond working because you love your job, this is excessive. I think this might have something to do with that video game lawsuit. The amount awarded to the video game company was kept private, but I bet it was a lot. They sued her for $100 million. I doubt they got that much, but it must been huge.
Sounds like somebody is in debt and needs to pay back her slave masters STAT! Sony knew they weren't going to make money off the album that was supposed to be released back in spring, so they made her go on tour to try to recoup some of their investment from "4" and the promotional duties she never fulfilled since she--or rather, her surrogate--got pregnant. And let's not forget the 50 million Pepsi LOANED her--that deal wasn't a "here's 50 million, go out and enjoy yourself" gift, it was a LOAN that needs to be REPAID.Bey probably trying to hit the 200 million mark with those added dates. Not that she'll be taking home that entire amount if she does, because again, she has people to repay, as well as taxes, attorneys, accountants, dancers, musicians, etc., etc.
Have yall noticed that lately, even though he's been caught up in controversy, in some weird kind of way Jay-Z comes out looking better than Beyonce??In his pictures, at least he is actually *doing something*. I cannot STAND HIM, but I will admit, he isn't pointlessly making himself look like an idiot, like his wig stand of a wife does.I think that is more than coincidental and I think he's going to repeat his method of use and throw away. So what if Bey is his wife? A snake will be a snake to whoever! I think thats why he turns a blind eye to her antics and the negative things people say about her....because he's going to detach, and the worse she looks, the better and smarter he looks!Think about it, what man would just sit back and allow people to call his wife dumb, fake, fraud and his daughter ugly???? Especially when he has NO PROBLEM going completely HAM over the Cuba incident, or anytime he feels someone has slighted HIM!
instead of putting out a "greatest hits" album beyonce is doing a "greatest hits" tour, i guess. iow, her time is up and she's about to be put out to pasture by her label.
Christina,That's fine, we'll just drag your ass everytime you step out of line!Ta-ta!
10:28, Bitch you pressed.
co sign with 9:56 and 10:05!
Listen, look at this picture and you will understand the extra dates!!http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_kyqr02uvQo1qzd7llo1_500.jpg
No, but the difference is that Ms. Lee, Bee Gee, Honey Bun, Kenya Doll, etc - ALL post valid points and have something to say other than to JUST be offensive. The only thing you come on here for, is to hurl "insults". Its grating to read, and its annoying as fuck, because you're just an asshole without a real purpose. At least represent SOMETHING, besides being a jerk.
WHO gives a FUCK who owns this blog? If you care that much, then you need a life! Log on, read the story, comment, and log the fuck off....shit.
Anonymous said...Listen, look at this picture and you will understand the extra dates!!http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_kyqr02uvQo1qzd7llo1_500.jpg10:48 AM===============================omgosh. that picture is SO SWEET :)
10:53, LOL! You haven't figured me out yet, huh? Notice I didn't mention KenyaDoll? I am KenyaDoll too. You hoes are dumb.
Who cares about Christina. Ignore her. On topic- @ 10:28 Your comment is food for thought. I can't stand him either, but Jay Z has been looking like the more stable one of the two lately. Idk who is managing Beyonce, but she has been acting a bit 'off' recently. I can only guess that the extended tour means that her fans will have to wait even longer for an album. She waited until there was absolutely no competition on the charts so folks can say she 'slayed' and all that other hoodrat nonsense. The smart ones are on to her tricks.
11:00 AM - Exactly! And I really do think that's by design at this point. Jay is a nasty snake, but he's a crafty, slick bastard. I even question how attracted he is to Bey at this point!!
11:03 - Its either lying about being KenyaDoll, or sadly its actually KenyaDoll! Either way, LIVES NEED TO BE GOT!And you're right.....they act as if more than one person cant agree that they're dumb!
I AGREE, lets ignore this Christina troll and get back to the discussion. Last Bey thread we did good, had a very good discussion and variety of comments, and I'm not gonna let this idiot cause me to spam this board with a bunch of off topic bullshit.
Everything is really starting to add up. I remember a thread last year where a poster claimed her husband was Beys former accountant, and advisedBey to slow down.
Why are folks discussing my name and I ain't did nothing? Lol! You all need something to DO!
@10:48 I have NEVER seen him look that happy (or stand that close) to Beydummié.
Camel is GLOWING in that pic LOL
with the carters it has always been about and will always be about greed. snitch is right, the carters will NEVER stop touring (there is more money in that than album sales). i will say that jay-z is getting older and better compared to kanye. kanye sitting up there with his knock-off wanna be beyonce, knock-off blue ivy and knock-off business ideas...its all quite sad actually. kanye and kim have sold their souls to be bey-z and its not working. i mean kanye has gone as far as making kim wear extra bronzer and dye her hair blonde. this is the most that kim has ever looked like a light skin black woman...dare i say creole, in her life.
It's because of that 360 deal she did, haha I bet she regrets it now, Jayz will be touring like her as well. I feel sorry for then, chasing money but losing themselves and their lives for the weak and crippled American dollar
i know beyonce tired as hell! even with all her min vacation breaks in between. i know it gets on her nerves to know she has to hop back on that stage and put those funky clothes on again and holler to the left to the left 20 more times. i would dive into the ocean that she always post and swim away. but jay z probably has a tracking a device on her. she is truly a slave to the game. mean while rihanna has gone on to earn her 13th # single, badu just got a deal with givenchy, and lupita nygono is probably going to get an Oscar and beyonce still on stage popping coochie.
LOL! ...What a bunch of psychos.!
Yeah, this blog is getting too weird for me. I can't....
she knows her star is fading so she needs to get in as many tours as she can...she is addicted to attention and performingimagine seeing thousands of fans adoring you and watching you and cheering you on , I gotta say I would be addicted to...nothing is like being on stageif she was smarter she could have that for longer like Whitney or Mariah, but she just gonna keep getting on everyone's last nerve
You hoes are just sum natural born haters!!! Maybe she LOVES what she does for a living... Maybe she doesn't wanna take a break because she loves being on stage entertaining ppl... Shallow minded ass negros!! Retire for what?? She might have a goal of becoming a billionaire so her kids great grand kids can eat as well.. She can't do that sitting at home in her mansion going shopping all day...ijs
@10:48-Z looks so in love like a sweet little girl in this pic. He has never looked so happy-not even on his wedding day-LOL!
Beyonce does not have a life without being in the spot light,. Shut the hell up with the term haters. She has no other choice to work like a dog because she owes so much money to SONY. She does not want to retire to raise her own daughter . Selfish.
@12:30 Read the bitch!
ain't that much love in the world. touring is hard work. the unpacking and packing, the rehearsals, the late night hours, hotel to hotel to hotel to hotel. nameless faces in crowds that become a blur. cheering your name but you can't really speak to them or have some kind of relationship with them. that's where the loneliness comes in for most of these celebrities. beyonce barely smiles anymore on stage. i'm sure's she's had a enough for a while. but sony bill, pepsi bills, video game bills, lawsuit bills, and jay z bills need to be paid
Maybe she added more dates b/c theres a DEMAND for Beyonce, even without new music! Dumbasses on a blog think thier opinion means everybody else feel teh same way! YOU may not like Beyonce but plenty of other people do! Stop being such miserable bitter haters!
If you believe Beyonce doesnt want to take a break, then you are very slow in the head as she is. Beyonce is working because she has Pespi debt, Video game $100 debt, Sony debt, etc. They spend more than they make I bet, but they make up for t by touring and continuing to push items like calendars, etc. Beyonce and Jay have money, but not money to retire... if they want to keep their lavish lifestyle they have to work.
knowing her she probably trying to break some kind of record by adding the dates so it can seem to make sense why the hell she out there all this time and no new music has been officially released.
Let's try this one mo time, since my other post got deleted. Does anyone remember that thread last year where a poster claimed their husband was Beys former financial advisor/accountant and Bey fired him? Then the poster allegedly posted Beys monthly expenses. Does anyone remember that?
I watched Kelly on the Arsenio Hall show last night, and I noticed Kelly kept calling Beyonce her sister. I find it odd that you never see them together, never see Kelly holdig Blue, etc.Beyonce doesnt have friends, she has fans thats a big difference.
I would live to know how much that game lawsuit was settled for. The whole thing sounded stupid to me. Why would the game company invest 100% of all it's money into 1 client. Didn't someone there think that it wasn't a good idea in the case that it didn't work out. If that's how they do business it was a matter of time before some deal went sour and they lost everything. They still getting paid though. Maybe not the $100 mil they sued for but it probably was over $10 mil.
@9:56 Beyonce tour has crossed the 100mil Mark she has the highest grossing tour of the year. What are you talking about? She's not trying to keep up with rihanna as far as touring goes b/c she already passed her.
@1:54 I remember that post here and on HSK....looks like that tea was right on the money (pardon the pun).
LMAO!!! A "BILLIONAIRE" BUT WORKIN' LIKE HER NAME IS PATSY!!! MASSA EPPS AIN'T GONNA LET HER STOP PICKIN' 50 LB BALES OF COTTON NO TIME SOON!!! HAHAHAHA!!!
When an artist goes on tour, what do they have to pay for? producerlawyersadvertisement/marketingpromotersvenuesback up singers lightslighting designers feestage setsstage managers feestage crew salaryushersfoodmakeup artistscostumes for singercostumes for back up singerscostumes for dancerslaundry for costumesjets (and fuel aint cheap!)hotel suite(s) to accommodate singerhotel suites to accommodate crew and familyIn other words, tours require a lot of moving parts, that cost a lot of money. Yes, if you sell out, after everyone gets paid you should still get a large cut. But remember, if you have large debts to pay, the debt collectors will collect before you see a red cent. Ask Toni Braxton (who was a bigger star than Beyonce in her time) how that worked for her!
@2:47, and this is for EACH SHOW! I'm sure there are other expenses that I left out, so Snitches, feel free to add on!

I believe Billboard posted statistics that Rihanna had taken aprox $136-138 million - Mrs Carter is shook, no doubt about it. However it isn't just that Where is Mrs Carter's new music? Da Fuq happen to that? The extended Touring keeps her 'connected to fans', keeps her name out there and most importantly keeps those coins coming. Bey is working out to be a very expensive liability if she ain't selling albums, and since she and her team are too scared to release anything so why not sell concert tickets?
@2:47 & @2:49, don't forget musicians and sound design/engineers (the latter very important when lots of playback is used lol).
@3:22: Oh yes!! How could I forget about the MUSICIANS and SOUND ENGINEERS!!!
@ 12:43 PM been in the game 8 years now and having 13 #1's hits wow and that child (Beyonce) has 5 #1's hits
@ 2:24 she grossed more than any other artists because she had more shows...compare number of shows to $$$ earned
This is how the industry works when you are young and hot they gas yaour head up, advance you allll types of money, encourage an extravagant lifestyle for self, entourage etc (all the while keeping tally of every cent) and then when the reality comes in, you are owned. Beyonce ain't sold that many records or had that many endorsements to be 'set for life" she got bills like the next man but hers are much higer, add in the lawsuitsShe has become a circus act
And after all of those of expenses can you then account for lawsuits from Gate Five to the Danish woman she stole ideas from to Dereon and racketeering lawsuit that stemmed from that.Then you get to personal expenses, houses, chefs, maids, clothes, jewelry (although one can argue they get a lot of free stuff)...and then as we can see, in terms of priorities, Blue comes last, which is sad.Do the math--rich people have a particular lifestyle that they have to keep up, and businesses go bankrupt all the time. Donald Trump businesses, over many years, had filed for bankruptcy at least 7 times. So with lawsuits piled on top of that, Beyonce does not have much liquid assets. Don't be fooled by the smoke and mirrors...
its sad that this whole Bey and Jay show has revealed how ignorant many in our community are in terms of how the world works.They are pawns, nothing more nothing less, real wealth are at home never working a day in their life not this incessant touring and being the product that that both areIts unfortunate that their images and music has brought out the worst in many of us, self hate issues, downplaying education, encouraging materialsim. Their presence has been severely toxic and a set back whether intended or notThey are pawns, if they want to uplift the community (that made them) try showing pixs reading to Blu, let Beyonce too go natural, let Jay help dropouts (as he was) not people already accepted to collegeThese two have really hurt many young people
@10:48--Wait is J out the closet? Cause, whats up with that homo glare?
and we all have a responsiblty to each other, or we used to...before Bey and Jay rolled on the scene, they also promote this selfish individualistic mentality that is not us, until the came along. I am sick of them as I care about our kids and if it's our kids or them, I'm rolling with our kids. Sometimes in life you can't have it both ways and that is what we want, we want to glorify these two without being honest about their real influence and impact. Its time to grow up and face real life and snap out of the Bey and Jay trance and rebuild ourselves, our communities, and first and foremost our children
hand claps 5:14
No rest for the wicked!!!! And GayZ is old news its soo soo obvious!
yeahboi said... @ 12:43 PM been in the game 8 years now and having 13 #1's hits wow and that child (Beyonce) has 5 #1's hits 3:37 PM ------------------------------------------------------------------------------LOL. That's why I laugh at the delusional HIV when they say Bey is on another level, and she's a legend. Bwhahahahaha. Oh rly?? Because a much younger, less talented woman who was almost dropped from her record deal has out gunned her and is breaking records all over the place. Riri was NEVER meant to be a contender. NEVER!! But here she is. It's good Bey is on her greatest hits tour, she may as well enjoy her time in the sun. It won't last much longer.
@1:54 PMI don't remember that. Can you fill us in what that poster said, pls?
Well said, 5:18--I totally agree!
Beyonce is done, her time is up and only the fans are missing this point. Beyonce wants non fans money, because fans money is not increasing. RIhanna may be alot of things to people but no one can say she doesnt have good music, no one can say she doesnt connect with her fans, no one can say she is trying to be someone else. Beyonce is lost, she has no identity and its sad, shes been in the game longer but her style/music/dance routines are all the same since 2003. Yes, she is a good performer but we would be too if we performed the same song and dance for almost 20 years.. who wouldnt be good at what they do? I actually feel sorry for her, because when the lights stop shinning she will be on suicide watch. Not wishing anything bad at all, but this is how much is in lala land.
@5:24 to add insult to injury let's NOT FORGET rhianna was W/OUT a fan base or band mates . Never claimed or proclaimed to be anything but her self . Now she pull in Elvis and MJ numbers #iconicstatus#thatrhiannareignjustwontletUP
Who needs a degree when you're schoolin life- BeyonceGee thanks, our ancestors only died so we could go to school, but my bad, she does what MLK did for the peoplePat yo weaves ladies Pat yo weaves cause another woman's hair certainly is better than yourn.Kids nowadays cite Jay and Bey as reasons why school doesn't matter I know I work with inner city kids and they too run that nonsense, school is just to make money, they have more than you do, you just hating smhLost ones for sure. God please help the AA
@5:26 here's the post from HSK...similar one was done here on this topichttp://diaryofahollywoodstreetking.com/beyonce-what-recession/
You know that this award-winning superstar seems to have it all. Good looks, some talent, a long-term marriage, beautiful child/ren and wealth and fame beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.But do you know how she has the energy to do it all? A single Class A dr*g that gets her up and keeps her up.Her habit has gone from a once-in-a-while thing to an every day thing. We have to admit that we are a little surprised about the depth of her dr*g use. We know she smokes pot, but we never dreamed she would get into hard dr*gs. Then again, given that her family and husband have a long history with dr*gs, perhaps this is her fate.Superstar: BeyonceHusband: Jay Zhttp://blindgossip.com/?p=59009#more-59009
@7:51 no surprise here. when you sell yourself to the devil and your g*d is money, it's what you do to survive...it's also no one's fault but your own. humble Christian girl my a$$.
@7;51pm well that would explain why her appearance lately on her off days is raggedy and smelling looking. Weave dry and frazzled. I guessed being pimped out has finally caught up to her lying ass.
Another - http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/robinson-cano-jay-z-birthday-bash-belgium-club-ace-of-spades-champagne-bottles-hublot-watch-102413
@7:51--it's funny you posted about Beyonce and drugs, because look what MTO posted today--and they're so not a credible source for a lot of stories, but if you look at the pictures of Beyonce yesterday with the giraffe hat and bikini, her pupils were dilated, which only happens in the dark, or with drug use. You can't dispute that! Just look at the pics!http://cdn.mediatakeout.com/66569/uh-ooooooh-beyonce-posts-pics-on-instagram-where-she-s-clearly-high-as-f-ck-hopefully-it-s-just-weed-tho.html
And he still is a dropout. Drake went and got his diploma. That is character. jay and bey are greedy ignorant fools that are the perfect pawns for the powers that be
I've been said Bey was coked out, following me ya'll1. Bey's shit for brains post a pic like this on her tumblr like people don't know what this looks like/what it is!http://www.bohomoth.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/beyonce_tumbler_photos_9_gwyneth_paltrow_17p1pma-17p1pmv.jpgThen we have proof of her dilated eyes in bright lightshttp://cdn.mediatakeout.com/66569/uh-ooooooh-beyonce-posts-pics-on-instagram-where-she-s-clearly-high-as-f-ck-hopefully-it-s-just-weed-tho.htmlThen we have this blind itemhttp://blindgossip.com/?p=59009#more-59009This girl is rotting from the inside outShe drinks to much She smokes to much She snorts to muchShe injects herself with steroids to much She gets botox to muchetc.. etc..
@12:17 the blind item wasn't even blind they had to many key words like "do it all" What can one expect she been non stop since the late 90's the only thing that really helps her is that she been doing the same thing since then, so she really isn't working hard learning new stuff. She just using all kinds of drugs hard!
It's Here! Beyonce Drops Album in 8 days, listen to snippets, see the tracklist, get all the deets! http://thegrid10.com/beyonce-drops-new-album-in-8-days-listen-to-snippets-from-the-new-album/
you can skim her new album here http://www.beyonce.com/music/5 after skimming yep she on drugs while tryna be rhinna. another flop
@12:17 am watch RWS post this story tomorrow about Beyonce using drugs and act like they researched and discovered it.
@12:17 am I heard a year ago..it was on S.Rose that Beyonce is like a Zombie when she is not on stage and touring. She needs someone to dress her, bath her, and basically do everything for her. It was obvious at the Superbowl that she was on steroids with all of that lean muscle everywhere, but its hard to believe about the drug use because she paints the facade soooo well. When we think if singers and drugs we think of Whitney Houston and erractic behavior, not Beyawnce.
@1:18am its not letting me play it on itunes. How does it sound though? A mess?
Just heard the album...I do have to say that her sound and the songs sound mature, and she does have great visuals for each song. So it does appear that she's growing--less pussy popping and more grown up stuff. She has a couple of hood songs as usual. The only thing is--the majority of the songs are slow and sound more pop than R & B, and sound too boring and drawn out for me. I think she was pushing for more of a Katy Perry/Alanis vibe, but I don't think the songs are catchy to be played on radio. I am what you call a strict "hater" the only song I really like and think will get a lot of play on the radio (besides the hood songs) is "Pretty Hurts"--it may be played on Z100. She's really trying to cross over, but I don't know if she can really pull it off. It's so different from her other albums that I honestly can't imagine a concert with the old and these new songs.
Well I'm one of the biggest beyonce critics, but being a music lover I am always willing to give everyone a chance. I just went thru all the snippets, and I can honestly say nothing is sticking out to me. Some of it sounds like a Rihanna song, some of it sounds like ratched houston songs some of it sounds like generic quiet storm songs.. the songs i'm hearing are just blah.. some of the visuals are nice but about half of them look cheap. maybe that was the look she was going for. I dunno. I'm sure her fans will swear it's the best thing since ice water but I'm just not drawn in to it!
@ 1:43 you can watch clips on youtube folks going crazy. i dont know why it's the same sexual stuff as usual. shrug https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vlkrm8nLCJohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUaO0OoBsSo
lol 1:49 I'm 1:50 and you damn near said everything i said!
What I find odd is that Frank Ocean and Blue Ivy are trending on twitter but Beyonce isn't. What's that all about? lol
beyonce looks so high in this videos coke is a hell of a drughttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxJ3l4FuU7Q
the only thing clever about this album is how she dropped it. i even have to give props to that. lol
@1:53--AWWLRIGHT! (Wendy Williams voice). Nothing really stood out right? I really tried to listen without bias, and while I do applaud her for trying something new, nothing really stood out. I think it will be really hard to play any of these songs on the radio for a long time--there are no strong HITS! There's nothing that is catchy that I would want to remember lyrics to. The slow songs are pretty good for elevator music, and cleaning around the house, but other than that, I'll pass. I think only the fans would want to buy this, and she may gain some sales from non-fans, but being that you can only buy the album, I think that's a risk that will backfire for her, as I don't think non-fans will buy the whole album.
@2:00 And while the way she released it is kinda clever, I think that will backfire also. In 8 days, this era is pretty much over. The will have heard all the songs and seen all the videos, so there will be nothing left for her fans to look forward to until the next album whenever that will be. There's a reason why artists release singles and videos to promote them in anticipation of the album. But it's masturbation, it feels good at the moment, but once it's over, you feel guilty and wonder why the hell you just did that lol.
I'm listening to the album...THE WAY SHE DROPPED THAT ALBUM WAS DOPE AS SH!t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I'm a Beyonce hater but that was awesome. At midnight on Friday the 13th the album is out and the hype about the way she dropped it will make news around the world. I like Pretty hurts. I like the video snippet for it too. A site has already released the video snippets. Pretty Hurts is the bomb.http://cloudmusiq.com/?p=30914
I am going CRAZY ABOUT THIS ALBUM!! Beyonce is 100% a visual artist. Listening to the songs without the videos you will NOT BE IMPRESSED, but watching the videos and seeing the music they are AMAZING!
i THINK SHE DROPPED IT ON ITUNES BECAUSE RIHANNA IS THE DIGITAL SALES QUEEN AND BEYONCE IS TRYING TO COMPETE WITH THAT
I hear you! I think if you're gonna release it, release it, damnit! and collect your coins! she has no business trying to be picky with selling albums only, when she should be selling singles as well--because the entire album on a whole, while shows some growth, sounds boring! And it doesn't sound like these are her experiences, it sounds like she's just singing other people's songs--there's a difference when you listen to an Alanis album versus an Alanis-imitation/inspired album sung by Beyonce.And since we've heard most of it, people will be so over it in 8 days...yup, the nut would be busted by tonight 9/8 Central, I guarantee you!
@2:11 I did watch the visuals with the songs. some of them are good visuals some of them are like top model photo shoots, but some of them are not that great. i didn't really like any of the songs at first listen. usually im left at least humming a hook or a chord, but i didn't happen, but i think her fans will be happy though!
Beyonce is not a visual artist...that's her new "genius" gimmick. Also, if you cannot be impressed by the music alone, what the hell is music for? Why do videos have to accompany songs? Stevie, Aretha, Tina, never released videos and their work is timeless. Hell, Michael Jackson's videos are great and timeless on their own, but so is his music by itself!
I know Fist Brown is mad that Beyonce collaborated with Drake on that song and video. I am SO GLAD she has short hair in the videos. I'm halfway through the album! 30 SONGS!!
@2:21 It's not 30 songs. It's 15 tracks and 17 videos. She did a video for Grown Woman but the track isn't on the album.
13 songs 17 videos...she knows she has to get by with showing some azz that's why more videos than songs. she dropped it now because rihanna just got her 13 hit, but she will not be adding any more hits to her list. she tried though
@2:21 correction. It's 14 tracks. 18 videos because she has a video for Yonce (not a track), Grown Woman (not a track) and a video for the credits (not a track) So that's the 32 items.
@1 49She can't pull it off because most white people hate her now and she relys on blacks, but further alienates blacks. She's at the mercy of her already existing fan base because she isn't making any new fans. We shall see in 8 days.
@2:24 thanks for the correction...I was telling everyone 30 songs. You don't like the songs? Its very much in the vein of Sasha Fierce and I loved that era. You have to admit the way she released it was off the chain. I like the cover art for the album. She doesn;t look like a white woman on it. Its very much black but sexy and global at the same time.
@5.34PM Co sign. I may not agree with all Rihanna does but the key to her success is her relationship with her fans. Rihanna treats her fans, with the help of social media like friends, Beyonce treats hers like peasants. I mean Bey has no dealings with her fansbase other than when they see her in concert, so basically when they are all congregated in a place where they literally adorn her with worship. Another thing Rihanna and her team have been adept in doing is keeping up momentum. People mock her 1 album a year strategy but look at the stats. Beyonce has lost major momentum, hence the desperation. She knows it, her handlers know it and even some of brainless stans know it.
2:33 Yea I just don't like the songs. I guess I was hoping for something of a modern R&B or something. Sounds like some Rihanna/Katy Perry Pop stuff. The other songs sound like Ratchet houston stuff with all kinda vulgarity and cussing and carrying on. It's a disconnect. One song I might end up liking has something of an 70's vibe. The other songs sound sleepy and boring. Yea I hated almost every song on I Am Sasha Fierce, so that's probably why.
This album is going to change the game. I'm glad she released it with no promotion because that way it couldn't leak.
@2:40 am I loved Sasha Fierce, I still play it everyday going to work. This album definitely has a broad range to her and the videos are spectacular. She has green hair in one of them. She might have some top 5 songs in there...it depends on which ones she releases as singles. I wonder is she going to go on tour for this album and if so is she just going to continue touring for this throughout next year. She might break the record for the longest touring stint. I like the Grown Woman vid with Ms.Tina in it.
@2:14 am you say it sounds boring but when she released more exciting music people like you said it was too young and too ratchet, when she releases tribal stuff like Grown Woman you say its too immature...I think the BOTTOM LINE is that she can't please everyone..PEOPLE ARE GOING TO HATE no matter what she puts out...she is not here to re-do what she already did. If you want to hear Dangerously in Love then buy that album. I have been going hard on Bey these past few years but I think the vids are fresh and a new look and I haven't seen another artist black or white present visual media like that before...not even Rihanna. The songs are another chapter in her career. Bey has different music that appeals to different fans on every album. To me Dangerously in Love was too slow and sounded like she was crying for a man on every song. I like B day and Sasha Fierce but I didn't connect to 4. This album is where she needed to go musically.
@2:24 its actually 17 tracks
Get ready for the Fags speak and hissing!SlayyyyyyyYeasssssssYeasssss QueenAmazingHoneyDivaOMGFeel free to add.Oh yeah, some fag on YT said Beyonce just gave him a butt shot.... uggh.
