Beyonce Lion King Rumors Backfire?


Earlier this year there were rumors that Beyonce was being considered to voice a role in the live action version of The Lion King [click here if you missed that].

Was the rumor a publicity stunt gone wrong...?

Sure sounds like it.

This Tony Award winner is getting a lot of crap for her new role. She shouldn’t be. That A+ list singer who had her name thrown out had it done so purely as a favor to make it look like she was wanted. Nope. The director of the movie had no idea the firestorm it would create.

Bey has ALWAYS done this. Yvette throws her name out there in reference to anything "hot" in order to keep Bey relevant. Bey and Jay were in Cali for a good year looking for film work. Best Jay could do was get Weinstein to co-produce some film about yet another black man in jail (keeping with the trend). No one wanted Bey in their films. Remember she did the same thing with the "Wiz" saying Bey turned it down cause she was too busy, no you refused to audition and was shown the door LMAO

And, 7:56, allegedly refused to audition because she's barely literate. As someone said at the time we can't have Princess Nahla sounding like an old Virginia slave.

In Beyonces defense, she has the batter mane so she deserved the part for that alone.


The real gag is with how long The Carters has been living in New York, how come she's never done: any threatre roles, guest spots on Law & Order or hosting role on SNL. Is she that big of a fraud.

The real tea is her television network she's allegedly working on.

Hey unlike a lot of other singers has struggled to cross over into film, because frankly she lacks speaking skills and discipline. Acting requires emotion thinking studying. Its not just shaking your azz. That is why she was blown away even by novice jhud in dream girls. She would be better off focusing on behind the scenes. Its funny that fight ing temptations movie was on the other day. Bey was horrible, but she looked pretty brown and voice was actually decent. Now she looks like a white woman in drag and her voice is shot.

True about living in New York, you don't have to go to Cali to show off your chops. Problem is she doesn't have any. She's not passionate about acting she just wants to be a big "stah", the biggest "stah" there is. The network idea would be a good look though, behind the scenes is best for her. Hope she looks at OWN and Revolt to see how hard it could be to get folks to watch a channel.

acting is just her way of trying to buy her way into some type of acting award. not like she deserves it, but he NEEEEEDS her name on all the awards

@9:14 Dang, you're right. Beyonce hasn't done any theater or SNL. I just thought the reviews of her acting, in the 3 movies she did appear in, were so horrible she decided to stick to things she can control or fake her way through. I mean, how embarrassing would it be for the ultimate perfectionist to be outted as the illiterate she really is. Allegedly.

I hope she's not planning on a strictly 'all Beyonce all the time' type of network. I might give an OWN/BET type of network a chance. One with something besides all videos.

Y'all are so mean. That girl is literate....Is she a professor? No. But she can READ lol. If she wanted to go a head and go to school and get an education, I don't see her having a problem given her work ethic. If she's trying to go into film, she just needs a good acting coach and she'll be alright.

Beyonce is not illiterate per se, but she is nowhere near where she should be for an adult person. She memorizes what she has to say in public. When she's put on the spot to say something off script she flops hard, Remember Obama's first dance? Her off script comments were cringe worthy.

I never wanted her to be Nahla or however you spell that. I would like for her to sing on the soundtrack though. Singe a revised version of the Circle of Life, slay it and call it a day.

But really though, I got a sneaking feeling they'll be reaching out to JHud to do that and she'll kill it for sure.

@ 5:59 exactly. We know the child can read, but for her age (mid 30's?) she struggles like a second grader, and feel like I'm even offending second graders with that comment. lol. While Daddy Knowles pushed for her to excel on the stage and her looks, they failed horribly on her education. I do not believe they got high school diplomas at all. Also, I think has a slight learning problem. I guess when you compare her to someone like Janelle Monae who has effortlessly flowed into an acting career. So much so, two films she was in received Oscars and she received high praise for her performances. Beyonce has been in numerous film and has not seen the same accolades. She just simply does not have it in film anyway.
