I hope she takes this serious and take some acting classes. These comments are about to be funny. Just one question.

Will this take Beyonce career out the garbage? ��������

Blech. I REALLY don't want to hear her struggle reading/acting thru this.

I like Beyonce and I like her music, but she couldn't act her way out of a paper bag if her life depended on it. This role should have gone to a Black actress who has worked hard to hone her skills. Whitney did the same thing. Just because you're good at one thing doesn't mean you're good at something else. Beyonce needs to stay in her own lane.

8:09....you are correct.

The part was written as a dignified princess but instead will sound like an old Virginia Slave? White Hollywood is always trolling us. It makes me sad and frustrated for all the classically trained Black actresses that got passed over for this and other roles. It's as though Hollywood wants to only show the worst of Black America.

I bet she had to hoe like a rabbit to get this role...

~ I'm up very, very early today watching Bloomberg and seeing the markets fluctuate before the coming correction. (Make sure to have a little money on hand for the coming months.) I hope you're all well.

Please remember that union actresses follow union rules and have to be paid scale, shooting hours, breaks, etc.

BUT, if someone needs the money and skirts the union rules (or has a history of skirting the rules) the studio can hire them for almost peanuts. Recall the story about the Hamptons house photo shoot and they were never seen moving in? They're allegedly still renting and with the concert tour not selling out like Live Nation expected, a quick cash infusion is needed to stay one step ahead of eviction now that the grace and favor Malibu rental has gone back to the owner.

I write these things not as a "hater" (as you call it and which always makes me chuckle) but because the smoke and mirrors/illusion that being undereducated or functionally illiterate can lead to fame and riches is detrimental to young people of color. Save your money and become financially literate as well. Be safe and thanks for letting me vent.

Beyonce isn't the only actor on this movie and the cast is majority black. I'm going to see it.

She looks like vashtie kola in that picture...I guess lupita lost it speaking out about harvey Weinstein now we have a chick that sounds like Lennie from of mice of men

Chrissy Snow said...

All that money and time spent schmoozing in Hollywood and the only role Beyonce could snag was the voice of an animated lion?
Congratulations. . .I guess

Bey is not gonna sleep her way to the top unlike these other thots who later cry rape.

she stays true to herself.

Chrissy Snow said...

I'm guessing you never heard about Beyonce and Robert Townsend's friendship from back in the day.
NVM I'll let you continue with your delusion of Beyonce as a "classy lady".

So no one thinks Beyonce is too old to voice the character of Nahla? I think she could have been the mother but definitely not Nahla. Someone on another blog mentioned Janelle Monae which would have been perfect!

This is not animation it's the live version of the movie and will probably be on ABC.

@9:56.....You are delusional....Bless your little confused heart.

it will be a flop b/c this person cannot act. she sounds like she is reading. if she would watch herself in a movie she would know she should not be trying to act. maybe they should let her lip synch!

Anonymous said...

Well, this is horribly awful news.
She can't act her way out of sleep.

@10:06 stawp!! Lol...this might be her Oscar winning role

Just an observation said...

A lot of big names in the cast. It will be okay only because of the actual actors like Alfre Woodard and others. Beyoncé voice and not so good acting will be the negative aspect that will affect the whole cast unfortunately.

Just an observation said...

This is going to be a big contrast from a young clear speaking voice to an adult's voice full of nasal blockage.

I notice people say her voice is southern. Uuummm, no. That's not southern.

ALL THIS TIME AND SHE CANT CONTROL THAT TEXAN DRAWL,IT KILLS THE MOOD OF HER TRYING TO ACT

They should release it on April Fool's day...cause her acting will be just that...a joke. She still thinks changing her hair for a role is acting.

I don't know how to quote this except by saying.WHO GIVES A FUCK! Since when was her last name CARTER??These motherfuckers really be trying to sell the public this fake ass devil worshipping tranny's "MARRIAGE" 2019 WATCH HOW YOU HEAR ABOUT SHE WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO PLAY THE CHARACTER.This DEVIL sounds like she's reading the script,but then of course she can not read,speak let alone ACT!

Yes, I'm That Leah said...

Wasn't she asked to be in The Wiz live, but turned it down because she wanted to be Glenda? The "perfect" and pretty good witch? They wanted her to be the bad witch! Boy, this woman is so high and mighty... missed a real opportunity there... the ratings were great! I'm quite sure that's why she didn't miss this opportunity... this won't work though, playing Nala. The other role as the bad witch would have been better. It's not hard to play evil or act crazy for a few seconds as a bad witch. Beyonce would have had a blast, but she's too uptight to be in the moment, and have some fun.

Her ego always gets the best of her. Ha.

DKB said...

She about to alienate the whole cast and have cute lil Nala sounding like she should be in remedial school
