Beyonce Gets Into Formation for Flint MI


Sunday night after her politically tinged Super Bowl halftime performance Beyonce announced she was headed out on the Formation World Tour [click here if you missed that].

Now Beyonce is using her tour to being awareness to the Flint Water Crisis...

A blurb from Live Nation's Formation press release reads, 
True to her life's work of always giving back, fans will be given the opportunity to participate in Beyoncé's #BeyGOOD initiative supporting local United Way programs and the continued work surrounding the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. United Way of Genesee County has been at the forefront of distributing thousands of filtration pitchers, faucet mount filters, replacement cartridges and truckloads of water to underserved populations to address immediate needs in Flint Michigan. They are also partnering with the Community Foundation of Greater Flint to create a fund that will address long-term developmental, education, nutrition and health needs of the children affected by the Flint Water Crisis. Follow @beygood on Twitter for more information.

@3:10 STFU you stretch-formula casualty. Those people have ALL given including Cher and she's not from Michigan!

And I'm sorry. While I commend Beyonce for her try at being concerned with the crises, she is still in this for herself. If she were genuine about this, she wouldn't be doing it while being half naked and acting like a stripper.

Hell, even Lady Gaga knew when to cover up!

Beyonce and Rihanna stans are crack babies.

Beyonce and her relentless PR machine. This bitch cares nothing about Black Lives Matters or the Flint water crisis. She is just in it to promote her stupid music, her upcoming tour and her new album. Everything this woman does is sooo predictable and fake and her fans and the media just eat it up.

I agree @3:16pm. Its about time Beyonce give back. @3:10 & @3:05, apparently you all have not read the charities of Michael Jackson, Whitney, Mariah and Janet. They started at a very young age giving millions to schools, hosptials etc. That is why they have received many Humanitarian awards. I compared Bey giving and the above names charity and was ashamed of Beyonce. Her givings were very short. I am happy she start giving but damn she really doing something she suppose to do. And probably should have started years ago. Bey and Rih fans are crack babies and nuts.

Get ready for 2016 to be the year of Beyonce's over-saturation of the internet, magazine covers, her 20 new music videos with her new album...everything. She does this with every single project. She must have every media outlet on her payroll to kiss her fat ass.

Russell Simmons was in Flint recently helping too. He is not from there either. So no Bey is not the only one. Just get ready to help her give to these charities Beyhive because I hear her tickets are very expensive. Nose bleed section start at $80.00. Haha

@3:10 - everyone on that list has given. not sure about Diana, but literally every other person on your list. they just aren't as self absorbed as your precious Beyonce, so there weren't major press releases...but google is free.

his is happening because I wrote a comment about Beyonce not sending 3 18-wheelers filled with water to Flint. I roasted her buns, someone read it and the PR machine jumped on the boat.

@ 3:10 PM Do your homework. Others have given and, by the way, Aretha is from Tennessee.

Beyonce has done more for black folks than any black person out there including Obama. Y'all are just some hating ass black "women" . That's why I don't deal with you triflin bitches at my job. All y'all do is talking about people and try to get outta work. Sorry behinds.

I don't give a fuck why she's doing it, as long as it's helping others! Kanye shrug! Let's talk about how Red Lobster has had a 33% increase in sales since she mentioned them on Saturday!! (Not that she gets a dime but talk about star power)!! She's been giving back to charities around the world since FOREVER if you can't find out which ones, that's cool too!!

OAN I do hate the release date on this, even if it were because she was releasing it to coincide with the Superbowl, Rih's album should've been pushed back AGAIN!!

Miss Franklin was born in Memphis but moved to Detroit Michighan to be with her father. She started singing in her father's church. She calls Michighan home and still lives there. Please go fuck yourself.

Beyonce is pro-Black and an activist when it's convenient and her saturation level in the media is beyond critical mass. Talking about loving one's Blackness in song lyrics while rocking an endless array of wigs and a nose job is both delusional and disingenuous.

^^^Have a seat mindless clown. Take out your credit card and buy Beyonce tickets to soothe your pain. These charitable donations are just tax strategies. Now you're chairman of Red Lobster? Sales increase of 33%?? You are being played like a fiddle but you didn't write the song.

^^^^90% of celebrity giving back to charities and starting their own, is for tax write off purposes, what's your point? Do you really think a kid getting clean water and/or food really gives a fuck about why a celebrity made sure they were able to eat or drink clean water and food? Swerve with that illogical ass logic.

We'll big up Pill Cosby and the many colleges and charities he gave to. Meanwhile he was out cheating on his wife and family and drugging and raping women. Gtfoh with that dumb ass bullshit of the who's and whys of who the fuck can give back!!!

I thought Beyonce was about the music but she is about being a “Bad Btch”. With that being said, “I don’t agree with the people who talk about her hair or her child.” No, I’m not all about that but you cannot be that simple-minded. When you don’t see it for what it is. It’s all about herself. The lyrics to the song are not about being proud to be black; it’s like she is mad at black people and then trying to be for black people at the same time. It’s a gimmick and she so happy that it stuck that she somehow all of a sudden can now talk. I was raised to give back with a heart not trying to be smart about it. I like the Black Panther movement she did at the superbowl and Beyonce’s been doing her research about reality to stay in touch. Everybody is so hyped like her ego that they think it’s all about hate and I’m glad she got to fill her personal ego also for the main purpose of her sales. She did not get paid for it; so why not sell her album/tour too even though she's a billionaire. RIGHT! It’s like a black man who won’t get his feelings all into another black woman again but will get something out of her. More power to her if helps being this bad bish in a relationship, then let her be but don’t be harassing the truth by some comments are constructing- because it hurts. Stay out of your feelings…..or we are doomed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beyonce is a Investment Product... Owned by the Label Shareholders. She must be Turning a Profit, Generating Revenue. I know it sounds Harsh but she is not looked at as person. As living flesh. By word of law ...Intellectual Property.

When sales go down or fail to materialize... losses are cut, Funding is Cut off , Artist get Dropped, or Sold ....after ... Anything and Everything that was Spent is Billed to the Artist. But........ If its believed the artist still as some Market Value a New Marketing Strategy is developed to resell the 'Product' ie the (Artist)

Welcome to ....Beyonce 2.0

Recreated by Live Nation her Touring Agency....Columbia / Sony.....and CAA her Film and TV Agency. They might not all agree on Strategy , one thing they agree on is Balance Due.

Her Core Market has Shifted, Focus is on what is most Prevelant on the minds of **African Americans** Right Now in America. Whats the Media Focus ....And how do we Repair the Image Damage has she suffered in this Market . How do we Regain the Trust and Respect of the People to REGAIN the Market. How do we do that ? What will get them back in Love ?

But of Course!!! .....Beyonce ....Black Power Diva...

Did you know recently Jay Z met with Harry Belafonte to Discuss Racial Issues?

So behind the scenes whats up next....Be on the look out For a Very Special White House Visit ...Coming soon

Beyonce and the Kardashian Koven are attention whores to the 10th Power.

The Kartrashian pretty much have a monopoly on that shitty channel E! and now they wanna take over Lifetime??? I swear, those whore are desperate. I am sick of them. Beyonce must be taking a page out of the Kartrashian Book of Narcissism.

Anybody that thirsty and desperate to be on top got some major issues.

What I learned from this is that you are nothing to white people unless they get something out of you. When they do you are still a n!gga to them. She's the f00l but Jay Z saved her by giving back to black lives matter since her senselessness is getting back to her by giving black people the middle finger. Wow!

And because some of us are so gullible we never see it coming kinda like the prison explosion, illiteracy crises they cnnot connect the dots and see that these PAWNS Jay and Bey have been marketing and promoting our desrutction over a beat

^BUT she did as SOON as Hurricane Katrina hit!! If you'd like me to post a list of what black celebs have given to Flint and WHEN they did, I will gladly do so. I would start off with major superstars that have NOT though. One particular ICON comes to mind FIRST but there are more than a few that I've thoroughly searched and know that they haven't!!

Louisiana is still not where it was or could be before Hurricane Katrina hit but if a celeb wants to give back TOMORROW, then GOOD they STILL need it. #facts

If black folks that truly believe in the word of GOD and their children are open enough to allow a secular living celebrity to so easily influence them on what their formation should be; they are in deeper trouble than Illuminati celebrities and should start over from Genesis. That's just my opinion and you know what they say about those.....

No matter what you say about Beyonce if you are not praising her you’re in the wrong even if she is in the wrong like a terrorist. She dumb down the music industry but you have to like it. Tell the truth do you really like the song?? Nah!! It’s like me coming out re-furbishing Maurice White song who just died R.I.P.over to tribute to him and announce that I have an album coming out. NO!!! I would get dragged to the core but if it was Beyonce do it will be like ….well?? That’s unfair…if that’s the case then everybody will do it then what she does but people have the common audacity of sense to know this is just plain wrong. I have nada nothing personally against her so you can cry about that nickpicking everybody does till the cows come home but she is using this as a promotion and that’s it. She do not really care I’m sorry that I see the truth and the carters will continue to mock this movement until they have their way one more time since people are talking because this is her last album LIKE THEY SAID. So, all the talking with “she has the talent to back it up”…No she just fired a whole gang of people to help this talent, including her dad. So I guess I will hire 100 people to get my talent. No, “You black people are never satisfy with what she does so I can’t stand you people who I don’t know so Beyonce is right”. Yes, beyonce got the game and gone with it acting innocent and a hero at the same time like you white people who tell us to leave her alone with our opinions in which she don’t care as long as someone it talking about her good or bad which is so annoying sad. So if you say one thing that is offensive you are in the wrong to other people of worship even if this is specifically obvious in benefitting her. “It’s not that serious”’ but you are the ones dividing us by using that word “hate” to justify while she is NOW using the past after years of black history months which is wrong. NOW can I have my opinion now please jesus, “I don’t like the song” it seems personal to her feelings, the beat will not stick in head so there. Sh00t me!! Beyonce and her click need to get off the cross; it’s only one person who own that title and it’s the omega himself. So don’t judge me when the devil is a lie.

I wish "awoke" people realize that when someone takes up for Beyonce at some capacity that it doesn't mean they are blind to ALL of her antics and are ALL followers. The same way it doesn't mean ALL people that doesn't support ANY of her antics are ALL haters!

Keep your own household swept, make sure you are correct in WHO you and your household serves and you'll be okay on where you're going. If you are certain believers, you are supposed to judge a righteous judgment but you are also supposed to pray for your lost brethren. If God as sin-free and perfect as he is doesn't hate the sinner just the sin then there is no way he wants his own "sinning" people to hate other "sinners".

"People have become so conditioned to hatred and racial bias that as a society we need to “unlearn” what we have been conditioned to think. We have to break those walls down before we can build a stronger society. I believe police shoot people out of fear more than anything.

The conditioning is what causes the fear, and can lead to tragic outcomes. I don’t believe any police officer goes into a situation thinking, “I’m going to kill somebody,” but through propaganda and conditioning a 12-year-old kid [Tamir Rice] can look scary and threatening."

Ok folks...read the actual Press release. It doesn't say what she is actually going to do. ..it says what United Way does and that the FAMS will have the opportunity to do something. And by the way...that song says nothing. Without the video, it's an average song with her doing that rapish/singish stuff.

@4:34 Jay tried to be a part of the Race Issues panel that Usher, Belefonte and Soldad O'Brien were on in NYC but he was not invited. He came to the venue but had to sit in the audience - I give him a bit of credit for staying.

@7:57 He met with Belafonte privately for two hours. He also took photos with Usher and Belafonte.

He did it to be on the same sheet of music with Beyonce. Altho its all about records sales , and marketing.

pdiddy donated 1 million (!) bottles of water to flint. so folks have been helping before yonce. i feel beyonce is used to create confusion. on one hand her video show some black power images on the other the lyrics are her typical self praise/worship of fame and money. on another blog a poster stated they didn't know whether they should put their fist up or twerk. lol. and that's the point to make us lose focus. remember the black lives matter movement has created a whole new wave of social justice activsm not just in the states but WORLDWIDE. there were folks in other countries declaring solidarity with black folks. the power of the blm has been such that even politicians have been forced to sit and talk with them to appear with the times. the blm is dangerous to the status quo because unlike other blakc movements it's not being lead by one charasmictic leader (ie a dr. king) it's a collective movement. so even if they take out one person, won't matter more to replace them. thus this is where beyonce comes it. make the blm all about her. the one leader. so when they take her out. the movement is stifled. do not get into formation y'all. that's what they want.
