Beyonce worked so hard, she ‘was losing weight every day’ before the Super Bowl

Shhh… are the Bey-stans gone? I hope so. They went a little bit crazy defending their girl’s Halftime performance on Sunday night. While I didn’t think Beyonce embarrassed herself or anything (far from it), I also thought there were some hilarious elements, like Beyonce practically shoving Michelle and Kelly off the stage and how Bey made sure their mics were turned down. It was Classic Beyonce in every sense – she didn’t bring anything new or groundbreaking to the show, but I do appreciate that she put in a lot of work for it.

One of the most startling things that I noticed as I first watched the show was that Beyonce’s bootiliciousness seemed… subdued. Sure, Beyonce still has curves and she’s always had a really great athletic-strong-fit-curvy figure, but at the Half-time show she seemed particularly slender for her. Well, Bey’s stylist told Entertainment Tonight that Bey was working so hard, she kept losing weight:

One of the most anticipated events at yesterday’s Super Bowl was Beyonce’s performance during the halftime show and ET spoke exclusively to the superstar’s costume designer about her her rigorous rehearsals and how much work went into her outfits.

“When a performer is working so vigorously, they’re shrinking constantly, and so she was losing weight every day,” fashion designer Rubin Singer told ET. “So we had to keep taking it in and taking it in and taking it in and doing tweaks and changes.”

Singer said he was based in New Orleans all last week preparing for Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance and that a team of 14 people put about 200 man hours into producing and tweaking the costumes.

“When you have the dress rehearsals and you actually get to see the footage the next day, or that night, and you see all the little nuances that you need to change,” he said.

In addition to Beyonce’s costumes, Singer also created the outfits for former Destiny’s Child band member Michelle Williams as well as the jackets for the show’s 120 backup dancers.

LOL, “tweaking”. I understand about how hard she was working and how that contributed to her weight loss – and quite honestly, her body looked amazing during the show! I’m not a Bey-stan or anything, but I would love to have her figure. She looked strong and fit. But I did laugh at the whole “a team of 14 people put about 200 man hours into producing and tweaking the costumes… for the show’s 120 backup dancers.” There were 120 backup dancers? LOL. Why does Beyonce need that many dancers when it’s going to be ALL ABOUT BEYONCE all the time, forever? I seriously didn’t pay any attention to the “backup dancers” at all – I was too busy paying attention to Bey whipping her weave around in the wind machine.

    I thought she looked much thinner than usual. Her body is as awesome now as it was when she was heavier. She is gorgeous.

  2. Dawn says:

    Oh geez poor Mrs. Carter. How much did she get paid to do this gig anyway? She is good at shaking everything up but her act.

    • emmie_a says:

      She didn’t get paid. She had to actually pay to do the gig.

      And once again, that last image is airbrushed to make her look thinner. Just like the image of her in that striped jumpsuit. NOTHING she does is natural. And it’s super sad that she keeps airbrushing her Tumblr pics. She is all fake.

      • Alexandra Bananarama says:

        She was asked to do the halftime show. That’s the big part here.

        The NFL gives about $600k to the talent to put together a good show. Since that’s peanuts compared to all the money needed for a good show she got sponsors to pay the rest of the costs.

        In short because she got the coveted halftime show performance she got huge sponsorship deals from like Pepsi and others.

        In the end she got paid big money with no out of pocket costs to her.

    …*sigh*…

    sit down and stfu already

    it’s everyday now!! She’s like a Kardashian sister – always up in everything, everyday. give the pr machine a rest

      + 100000000
      I never used to “hate” her.
      I seriously hate overexposure and arrogance.

      • MonicaQ says:

        I don’t hate her but she’s the Tom Brady of performers (to me). Talked about so much that I didn’t care but it’s starting to drift towards hate for me.

      • ZigZagZoey says:

        Awwww MonicaQ :(

        I love Tom Brady! (I’m from Mass)
        But I understand if you hear too much about anyone it’s just sickening after a while!

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Who’s talking about Tom Brady?

        Everyone can’t shut up about Ray Lewis.
        Maybe Beyonce is the Ray Lewis of the music industry, only much MUCH less annoying.

        EDIT:…and less egotistical than Lewis.

      • ZigZagZoey says:

        Hi Kitten! How are you? ;)
        Tom Brady is not egotistical at all to me. He always seems extremely humble and polite and has no problem saying he sucked if he did! He’s one of my favorite (by far) athletes for that reason!

      • V4Real says:

        Well if we’re talking non-egotistical quarterbacks that award goes to Eli Manning. Sorry NY Giants fan here. Well at least it took the topic off Bey for a moment.

      • CC says:

        I get where you are coming from.. I never thought about Beyonce or she was never on my Radar until this past month. I’m a big JP fan and since they decided to go undecover I’ve been following POP culture or Beyonce in specific. Then after the Inauguration and Superbowl I realized why I never followed her or JAy-Z.. They are just not important.. Maybe in their minds or their fans they are Grand. They bore me.

        Please haters don’t talk about black power or black women power. I’m bi-racial who’s darker than Beyonce and Identify myself as a Black woman. Also, grew up in Brooklyn, NY, not Marcy projects (Jay-z) but Mike Tyson territory (Brownsville). But she and Jay-z are just tired..

        She’s a country bumpkin from Houston (listen to her speak) and he’s a wannabe Ghetto Tycoon. Whom, according to Black sites, abuse her verbally (That I believe)and Physically (not sure). But I tend to believe people in the industry, since it was always known in the Black media and community that Whitney Houston was a drug addict back in her early 20′s, Halle Berry was crazy (there are stories about her).. I wish the mainstream media would follow the Black Media, they would really know what’s going on with Black Superstars.. They’ll catch on about Beyonce and Jay-Z in 10-20 years. When Beyonce decides to write a book. It’s not what it seems. I hate to say this but it could be another “Ike and Tina Turner” That’s all I’m going to say. Denzel Washington isn’t squeaky clean.

      • Pandy says:

        CC, you need your own column, or at least a weekly Blind Vice! Beyonce slimmed down so much she didn’t need the lace to hide her thighs! Nope, they kept it lol.
        Begonece already.

      • Katie says:

        I won’t say I hate her because I don’t even know her. But the ego and arrogance and over exposure is getting old. I just can’t care about her or like her music anymore.

    • 'Sup? says:

      I know, it gets on ones’ s nerves to see a daily post for this gal….my daughter and I say “what..ever” …lol.. she is 5 and has quite an attitude when she says it…lol

    • ThrowingShade says:

      Um, Beyonce didn’t write this piece, the blog did. If you don’t like reading about Beyonce, don’t click on the link. Problem solved.

  4. Zwella Ingrid says:

    Personally I was underwhelmed by the performance. I was prepared to be impressed, and wasn’t. Bey looked healthy, but everyone in the group of women I was watching with commented on the heaviness of her thighs, which if she had been losing a lot of weight working out was interesting. I’m not bashing her thighs, I do think she looked healthy. Just overall, not really that impressive of a performance IMO.

  5. Riana says:

    To be honest when she’s seriously touring/performing/working Beyonce always gets very slender.

    It’s one reason I didn’t believe when people said her body was photoshopper for GQ, that’s all hers and she wanted the world to see it.

    • Missy says:

      But the GQ photoshoot prolly took place months ago. Idk ifs plausible that she’s been rehearsing for the Super Bowl for the past three-four months. Maybe that’s when they were coming up w the concept but considering the Super Bowl pereronance was a mash up of old material, she prolly has been rehearsing or 4-6 weeks max given how busy she is.

      Her waist was noticeably smaller in the GQ shoot than in real life and so yes, I think they photoshopped her waist-hip-ratio to make her look curvier than she actually is. It’s the same reason she wears those bodysuits w padding on the hips to excenturate her hips and make we waist look smaller by extension. In candida, she’s thick all over and pretty much straight up and down

    • su says:

      exactly i didnt believe that when i saw the video, the gap was STILL there, i was surprised myself, but you know, people will continue to be pressed about it…

  6. DeltaJuliet says:

    I thought she looked exactly the same as always.

  7. Lemony says:

    I’ve never been a big fan of Beyonce’s music but I’ve always LOVED her awesome body! She really has the perfect body, as you mentioned, athletic, curvy, & slender all at the same time. She’s my fitness inspiration. Sidenote: Kelly Rowland is so pretty.

  8. mel says:

    The girl has an amazing work ethic…

  9. KellyinSeattle says:

    If only she’d lose a little of the ego everyday….

  10. MG says:

    Just watched the halftime show last night and I think she did good. And I am no Beyonce fan! I find her to be out of touch with reality and too much of a diva. But she looked AMAZING! She danced her butt off and sounded good. She is just so beautiful, and the body…good lord! I think the show was entertaining.

    And…I still think she should have sung live at the inauguration, without the pre-recorded track. That was a bad choice on her part.

  11. I.want.shoes says:

    Really? Didn’t notice.

    Maybe the weight loss was from her weave thinning out a bit with all that hair tossing and wind machine?

  12. Ms Kay says:

    Well it ain’t exactly new here, I remember how thin she got during the Dreamgirls promo, even thinner than that.

    I didn’t notice there were so many dancers? Because all I could see was Beyonce dancing with Beyonce holograms on the Beyonce floor with two giant halves of Beyonce face all showing on giant Beyonce screens.

  13. Sisi says:

    yeah I didn’t see any back-up dancers either

  14. RHONYC says:

    Kelly had me thinking ‘day-um, chil…milk does the body good!’ ;-)

  15. plum says:

    I don’t get why people keep going on about the way she made it ‘all about her’ isn’t that what all singers and performers do?? If not surely it would make them pretty forgettable.

  16. Lori M. says:

    Am I the only one that thought her dancing looked like stripper moves? I didn’t expect so many shots of her dancing crotch to be flashed across my tv screen.

    • Bijlee says:

      The woman is a glorified stripper and it’s down right disturbing. There’s that me dance video where she’s dancing and encouraging kids to get active, she’s pant less and wearing high heels with socks and its just ugh!

      You have a ton of feminists all over the Internet saying she’s so empowering she’s so incredible, talented, and smart. She’s just playing the game brilliantly. Beyonce knows they fall for this crap and has made it part of her image that she’s empowered and ish you know? Those women are getting played by beyonce. worse she’s influencing a whole generation on what’s attractive and sexy. Just gross.

      And another thing. I watched her performance on YouTube and her head kept getting cut off. Did that happen live?

    • SaRe says:

      I was watching her perform and wondering why she was trying to rub her vagina on me through the tv.

    • mmf says:

      During her show I wondered out loud why I’ve never seen any of the male entertainers laying on the stage waving their legs around in the air. While singing.
      I suppose if you have talent, there is not need to show off your personal parts.
      Very under-whelming half time show.
      At my party, we thought the commercials were weak as well. Glad Baltimore won though.

    • Ella says:

      Yes!! I turned it off because I found the stripper moves bizarre – I hate this current mode of female singers having to do the pole dancing moves and jiggling constantly. Who is that attractive to? Do 19 year-old boys constitute her prime music-buying audience??

      I also thought the costumes HIDEOUS. I found myself thinking nostalgically of Stevie Nicks and Blondie, who were sexy and gorgeous without showing their T & A and grinding constantly on stage.

  17. apsutter says:

    I can see this because she seems completely obsessive about her work.

  18. Happy21 says:

    I didn’t post on Bey yesterday because the thread was HUGE.

    I’m not a total hater of Bey but her arrogance and egotism is getting on my last nerve.

    The half time show was meh. She is a great performer BUT I was underwhelmed. I was waiting for something BIG to happen (and not Kelly & Michelle showing up, that was predictable). I loved that they did but thought they should have been there longer and NOT sang one of Bey’s hits. I didn’t like that Bey only sang snippets of songs, like a big remix, it irritated me.

    Now her Body…I thought her upper body looked a lot slimmer than usual but that her legs looks about the same, maybe slightly smaller.

    She is a beautiful girl but the hair whipping and all that was too much. I felt like she was thrashing to Metallica or something. And I also was so annoyed with her try hard fierce faces she kept making.

    All in all, in my opinion, it was a pretty good performance. She can entertain that’s for sure.

  19. Cazzie says:

    Did Beyonce work so hard that she lost weight in her nose, too?

    ;-)

  20. M says:

    So Beyonce has her nose done? Link me to before and after pictures!

  21. sarah says:

    As much as I can’t stand Beyonce, I would KILL to have that body!!

  22. K-rock says:

    Good for her. I just wish she would keep her pelvis to herself.

  23. TheWendyNerd says:

    I do think Beyonce is totally awesome, huge fan. But she is an egomaniac. I don’t think I’m less of a fan for admitting that. I also wish Kelly and Michelle got to shine more. But At the same time, they didn’t need to be there and that Beyonce was willing to share the stage at all was surprising for her. Still, she’s a lot of fun even if she is all about herself. I don’t blame her being the way she is, once you’ve reached a certain level of success, it’s bound to happen. She at least works hard. If I was Beyonce, I’d be crazy too. But yeah, she’s nuts.

  24. Whiskeylove says:

    The only body envy I had during that performance was Kelly Rowland! When she popped up out of that ground the first thing I saw where her thighs. I couldn’t stop looking at them the entire time! AMAZING. Although I agree Beyonce looked fit and healthy It’s really not a body I would want. It looks like a lot of work just to keep the weight off. I’ve a feeling if she even looked at a bananna she’d gain a lb.

  25. janie says:

    As terrific as she looks, her baby is a year old.. why shouldn’t she? I didn’t have all the resources, mine was off in a month. Besides her over blown ego, i’m tired of the crotch shots and same dance moves. Get some clothes.

  26. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    I agree bijlee what’s even more interesting is that most feminists lean to the left yet this overexposed fake diva is completely in the pocket of corporations and she’s laughing all the way to the bank, and they refuse to see this Isn’t she a One per center; No Plum it’s this generation of narcissistic performers
    GOing back a bit, when Jimi Hendrix was asked by Dick Cavett on the Dick Cavett show are you the greatest guitarist, Jimi responded I don’t know you’ll have to ask Rory Gallagher ( a great completely underappreciated Irish guitarist except to guitar lovers); and jimi and rory had more talent in one eyelash than all of today’s silly manufactured pop “stars” including fakeonyce have in their entire bodies.
    That’s not even arguable.

  27. Tiffany says:

    First of all in the black culture hips and thighs are desireable.. Second, Beyonce does at times use wigs and weave because color and lighting can do plenty of damage but I wish people would stop using it to constantly go in on her as if because she is black that means there is no way she has hair hanging down her back. I do not see the constant mentioning of Jennifer Anniston’s fake blue eyes, fake nose, fake hair color and photoshopping of her pictures the way you are constantly mentioning Beyonce and excuse me but JA is the one always being photographed either in a bikini or with no bra so I can only assume that your real problem is that this black girl is sitting on top right now.

    • Hmmm says:

      What?!? – This site always goes on and on about Jen’s hair, tanning, fake nose.

    • PattyCakes says:

      I’m with you. I hate that we as women are always trying to get mad at people objectifying us and only seeing us for what is physical, when we judge each other so harshly every day. People keep going on about her having fat thighs and etc, but will turn around and talk about Christina Hendricks like her body is ok and beautiful when she is definitely BIG. Hate Beyonce for everything else, but leave her body alone. Just because the Caucasian community likes chicken legs doesn’t mean that’s how everyone’s preferences should be. And no man would kick her out of the bedroom for her thighs. Just sayin’.

    • RHONYC says:

      again – watching Bey in her getups ALWAYS makes me fall more in love with my thighs.

      ahhhhhhh *touching thighs*

      thank you Beyoncé. ;-)

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        The sweeping generalizations here are giving me a headache. This statement in and of itself is super contradictory

        “Just because the Caucasian community likes chicken legs doesn’t mean that’s how everyone’s preferences should be. And no man would kick her out of the bedroom for her thighs. Just sayin’.”

        If white men liked only “chicken thighs,” they would kick her out of bed and, unless you’re aware of some ethnographic study I am not, MEN like women of all shapes and sizes. There is no direct correlation between race and thigh preference 😒

        Tiff, implying those who don’t like Bey are racists is a weak and lazy argument.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Tiffany-when was the last time you clicked on a Jen Aniston post? It’s funny that you should use her as an example because her appearance gets criticized a HELL of a lot more than Beyonce.

        Beyonce and Aniston both make money off of their image so people will have their opinions-and it’s all fair game.

        As far as what is revered or desired in “white culture” I think that you would see that most men (at least all the white dudes I know) like a gal with a butt and boobs and yeah, I think thighs are acceptable as well in “white culture”. In the end, I think most men would agree that it’s the total package they’re attracted to, which includes brains and heart, not just the physical appearance.
        It’s never a great idea to try to disparage stereotypes by perpetuating MORE stereotypes. It kind of negates your message.

        Now, what I DO think is unfair is comparing women of different frames and body types to an “ideal” as perceived by ONE person. For instance, the members of DC-they all have different body types-Beyonce is VERY VERY fit. She will never have Kelly’s thighs, nor does she need them to look hot.

        These three women are healthy and fit and they all look great, period.

      • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

        I’m going to take a waaaaaay less, um, ‘peppery’ crack at what I think we’re supposed to be getting out of those (to me, kind of injudicious and inflammatory, but part of me hears it) statements.

        It can turn into obsession, but at it’s core it’s your basic male gaze game. This round, however, includes two gazes (whoopee…ugh. Too many politics). In a sense, black women are freed from scrutiny because a lot of their features aren’t what is considered to be features up for acclaim–larger thighs, wider and more bulbous noses, common diastema, proneness to ‘thickness’ etc. by the larger population. Those features however are largely considered attractive within that marginalized group, both for their own sake and because they are kind of derided on a grander scale. Again, this is my interpretation, they can feel free to clarify if I’ve messed up.

        Some black women express frustration that the features common in black women that are ignored are in the estimation of some, worshiped should they be found on white women-extreme curvaceousness, the prominence of booty implants, full lips, darkened skin. But for all of that, when push comes to shove, even they are outliers and people want what they’ve ‘always’ wanted. I’m not even going to get into the whole ‘Leave you for a white woman’ boondoggle, I can’t be bothered with the politics, never could. At any rate, I’ve got tons of pennies that might be useless and I’m PISSED–that’s what I care about.

      • PattyCakes says:

        @Morticians

        You’re reaching way too far with that response. The main point is that women shouldn’t be tearing up one another’s bodies so much and then complain when a man does so. You can look at all the comments on this page about her thighs and see what I mean by that. I don’t like Bey either, but I think it’s unnecessary to go after her based on her body.

    • Tiffany says:

      In response to the Mortician poster..

      I did not imply that if you did not like Beyonce you were racist. I listed 2 specific things which are attributed to her heritage. As black women we have to fight for what we love about ourselves because it is not always mainstream acceptable. As far as not liking her, there are MANY blacks who don’t like her for her perceived MEGA EGO. I personally have no issue with celebs with huge egos that can back them up with their work ethic. Hate her songs, hate her performance, hate that she appears to be everywhere but why is it such a big deal about her hair and her body. For the record check her released photos from when she was a child, she has long hair. So the did on her wearing a wig is annoying because it seems like it is being implied that there is no way she can have long hair of her own. I hate when people do that to me and really what difference does it make!

  28. shewolf says:

    Beyonce wants to be iconic like Michael Jackson etc. She very much works an image. As to how she is in real life who knows. I can’t say I care.

  29. ladybert62 says:

    Her thighs are scary-strong-I will beat you up looking!!

  30. velourazure says:

    She needs to stop messing with her nose. It’s a fast-moving slippery slope into Michael Jackson land.

  31. janie says:

    I just watched the halftime show for the first time and WTF?? I could barely hear Kelly and Michelle, so I don’t know why she bothered asking them to sing at all. And having Destiny’s Child reunite and make them sing Single Ladies. I’m sorry, but she’s such an asshole.

    Her body is awesome, though.

  32. Bellalis says:

    BLAH BLAH BLAH FUNNY HOW WE NEVER HEAR ABOUT THEM DONATING A DIME …TO ANYONE.

  33. kim says:

    Worked hard? Hahajajaha on what? Boring same ole performance! She needs to work on her lying, bc it sucks.

  34. Crystal says:

    Beyonce has an amazing body, I love that she’s a little bit thick but she’s really toned. You can tell that she works hard for her body and she’s always honest about it (probably the only thing she’s ever honest about). I’m waiting for a new single and for her tickets to go in sale so that I can buy 2.

    Kelly’s body though. Lord, Jesus. Kelly Rowland is a QUEEN and she is Gone With the Wind Fabulous. All I could think when I saw her on stage was ‘Me. Gym. Now’. she killed it last night and I wish she was a big star but that’ll never happen because her father isn’t Matthew Knowles.

    Kleptonce needs to bring out her new single now while the SB hype is still fresh. I’m getting impatient tbh. I want some new music from her. I wish she wasn’t bringing out the documentary though. Who needs to write, produce and star in their own documentary? That’s just some bullsh-t.

    Oh and Beyonce. Girl, I love you but I’ma need you to stop messing with your nose. You’re taking this Michael Jackson obsession too far. Whoever told you that that nose looks good served you a plate of fraudulent lies. It’s enough now honey.

  35. ms says:

    well she must have been huge five months ago when she started cuz she wasnt exactly skinny for the main event. but why is this even being brought up? Geez get over yourself kid.

  36. diva says:

    Kaiser I love you for all you said about her! She is so overrated and the performance was just like all her other ones. I think Kelly looked amazing! Wish people pay attention to her.

  37. scarlett says:

    I think she could literally crack walnuts with her thighs.

  38. Jaana says:

    I wonder what some of ya”ll thighs look like. LOL Also, every celebrity wears weaves/extensions. The constant heat, coloring damages hair so they either cut it to a certain length or wear wigs, a la Beyonce. You haters know nothing about her . You hate the fact that she isn’t falling out the club drunk or slutty & you cant trash her but you zoom in on insignificant things like her wigs and her weight. LOL

    • Crystal says:

      Where are all these weave comments that have you stans pressed as hell in this post ? I’m seriously trying to find them … I mean, she was practically born in a lacefront (I doubt that there’s a stan or hater that could ever say they know what her real hair looks like) but her hair is always on point so it’s not a big deal. She could give Nicki Minaj and Jen Anniston some tips. I’d like to see her go back to that black hair she had in ‘Countdown’. She had a ‘girl-next-door’ look to her there. She looked gorgeous.
      As for being slutty, LOL please. Bey all but opens up her labia on stage when she’s performing so I don’t think you want to go there. Oh my bad, when Beyonce does it, it’s ‘empowering’.

      • Jaana says:

        You arejusta hater. Bey’s natural hair color is brown.

      • Crystal says:

        LOL. Have a seat. I’m a big fan of the King but I don’t spend my time licking her a**hole because she’s a good performer. She don’t pay my bills. I’ll leave that to you and the rest of the Beyhive.

        And please, you don’t know what her hair looks like. She probably doesn’t even know what her real hair looks like since she’s been rocking those blonde Yaki tracks since DC.

        You tried it though.

      • su says:

        im confused, because some fan know certain things about beyonce we’re on her labia? ma’am no, her natural hair colour IS brown, its called google, old pics of her are EVERYWHERE. the style of dance isnt to your liking so shes a slut? que? what happened to CHOICE. she dances/dresses how she wants as she has the RIGHT to do, she’s a grown woman.

  39. lola lola says:

    She’s always had big thighs and still does. The two other ‘destiny’s children’ look way fitter. I’d be psyched to have either of their figures but not Bey’s…

  40. Willa says:

    The 1st pic of Kelly theres a persons hand near he crotch making it look like its her butt turned towards the front. Giggle.

  41. CC says:

    Remember, Halle Berry was fronting all Black films before she hit Mainstream. We loved her cuz she was the only black female artist back in the day that seemed real. NO long weaves. She was beautiful, natural, short cute hair.

  42. Anna says:

    It is always about BeyOnce. Everything she does. Wherever singing at the inauguration or the blackout bowl, neither the president nor the Ravens and the 49′ers were involved whatsoever. Only about her. All BeyOnce all the time. She seems very very narcissistic to me. Many performers are however some more than others.

    She looks like a stripper. Her music is boring. The dance moves are the same everytime.

    The only good thing (?) at the super bowl was the light show which caused the blackout which made this super bowl much more interesting.

  43. scarlett says:

    I’m not going to deny she has talent. She works what she has but vocally, let’s face it..she’s no Aretha. Whitney or even Mariah. A lot of the times she appears to forsake substance for style and it becomes more about the show than the actual vocal performance. One thing is clear: she is aiming for world domination. She wants it bad, hence why she is everywhere. But you know what they say about familiarity breeding contempt. Overexposure is overexposure. Turning the mikes down on Kelly and Michelle seemed like a bitch movie regardless who made that call.

      Did you know that Mariah and Whitney ruined their voices? Aretha’s voice is not sounding good for many years.
      Beyonce thanks to questionable vocal methods and bad choices in lifestyle is not going to sound good in few years from now.
      Aguilera, Clarkson, Adele, Pink, Joss Stone and other singers that people like to claim to the best ever already have too many issues with their voices.
      But they all are great singers for the musical genres they have chosen to do.

    I can’t stand Beyonce anymore but in some weird I can’t stop becoming interested and following all her moves. Looks like everyone here is going through the same problem.

    I agree with all the negative criticism people are saying here.

    Look … yes she has a curvy body but I would never want it … That kind of a body is way too hard to maintain and you are always 1 cupcake away from busting out your clothes… Kim K body I feel the same way about … and No i am not jealous because I have always been thin with a butt…
    Also Beyonce by her own admission wears at least 2 pairs of really expensive stockings when she performances to help her legs look small and toned and to keep them from moving …
    also that flesh tone body suit she has under is like a spanx … so honestly everyone should just appreciate their own bodies and stop dying to look like this women … because she does not really look like this … I follow her a lot… have seen her on stage and on dvd’s …
    it is her stage costumes that cause her to look so tones… if you look at her bathing suit pictures her legs are slightly bigger and her waist is not that small

    She used to be a great singer in the beginning of her career, but now she is all about cheap gimmicks and aggressive media manipulation to fix her crappy image and her fading career. Ugh

    I had to DVR rewind because girlfriend was looking a little Michael Jackson. Where IS the bridge of her nose? That Jackson discount price chiseled off nose looked ridiculous.

    Makeup? Or some tweaking.

    It was SO sad to see Michelle trying to dance. The girl was so bad it hurt to laugh so hard.

    Y’all this is also the 20th anniversary of MJ’s performance at the Superbowl. B, you’re not even close to being that awesome.

    She love’s to answer the media, before they ask the Questions…Before we start saying that she Lipo’d…now we know why she looks like she does;) What a PR management..CHAPPEAU

    i need to understand where these claims of ‘faded career’ are coming from, like, its just wishful thinking. i mean when HASNT she been on top, even without a grammy for 4 she STILL out sold a bunch of other artist in their opening week even when it was HER lowest.

    As for the ‘overexposure’, the fact that she was doing the superbowl and the inauguaration would have made sure she was part of the news cycle ANYWAYS (she was ASKED to take part in BOTH cases)and then the whole fake controversy of her singing ALONG to her pre-record was blown up by the media…like are you so pressed that you cant comprehend that there a reason why she is everywhere at the moment? i feel like some of you are just being SLOW. then people wanna get upset because she promoted her tour shortly afterwards…when else was she supposed to do it? what is wrong with people?

    lets not even get into the foolishness of proclaimed feministS have a problem with The name of her tour, like WTF?
