Beyonce Sings For Obamas’ First Inaugural Dance

Beyonce Beyonce will sing the first song that Barack and Michelle Obama dance to on inauguration night. The name of the song? That’s still secret. But Beyonce is part of the star-studded lineup at the official Neighborhood Ball that will be televised on ABC, along with her husband Jay-Z, will.i.am, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Shakira, Sting, Faith Hill, Mary J. Blige, Stevie Wonder and Maroon 5. The Presidential Inaugural Committee said Thursday that presenters at the ball will include Denzel Washington, Jessica Alba, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ray Romano, Jamie Foxx, Queen Latifah and Kate Walsh.

  1. I love it!

    A lot of people are taking their foot out of their mouth right about now.

    I really wish J Hud was going to be there since they’re both from Chi.

  2. Hmmmmm……I wonder how much Jay and Daddy Maddy shelled out to get their precious Beyonce this gig.

  3. Ok, please tell me why every black blog is trying to make Obama’s historic moment all about Beyonce.

  4. Yay Bey! I wonder what the song will be. I knew the Obamas would have her do something special

  5. Oh Lord……….. I almost don’t want to see it. What ever, I won’t let her spoil it 4 me! Go Obamas!!

  6. Liyah lol. Im just happy the obamas going to be in the white house that really it.

  7. cute…like a wedding singer..i guess…

    this is AFTER the actual inauguaration right?

  8. I been good girl just keeping warm is this negative damn weather we got. Im going to be in the house playing my wii and watching some dvds this weekend,

  9. Y’all few more days and we got a Black President and First Lady I’m so psyched! What an honor for Beyonce to be able to serenade the First Couple as they dance! That’s a memory that will last a lifetime! Don’t forget all of this will be aired on TV too.

  10. This is not a Beyonce Knowles concert people. This historical moment is all about the Obamas. I agree with another poster that it seems the black media web sites only want to highlight the fact that Beyonce is invited. There are tons of black celebrities and dignitaries that will be there, but this moment is not about them. It is about our next 44th Commander and Chief and all eyes and the spotlight will be on him and his beautiful wife.

  11. I am so happy for the entire lineup because what people don’t understand is that the inaguration has many balls and celebrations that are taking place. I am just happy that all of our favorite entertainers are able to be present and do what they can to make this something great. A black president and first lady: That is priceless and a timeless blessing.

  12. I am With Lady i’ m so happy they go in the white house Britney spears could sing for them , and that will not disturb me, I Heard that Jennifer had a deadline to respond to the invitation and she didn’t so they had to take beyonce,I wonder why she didn’t But anyway i’ ll be watching her at the super bowl, and more power to bey that is probably the only thing she will be remembered for

  13. We all knew she was gonna force her way up in there somehow … she can’t stand to see ANYTHING happen without her being in the mix. Thank God I don’t have to hear her cluck and warble her way through their first dance. I’m praying for the backlash to begin …

  14. Well, for Sunday this is what Bey will be doing: The 2009 Inaugural celebration begins with a star-studded concert at the Lincoln Memorial on Sunday, January 18 at 2 p.m. The event will be free and open to the public, kicking off the most open and accessible Inauguration in history. It will be presented by HBO 7:00-9:00 p.m. ET/PT for Americans to enjoy across the country.

    I am proud to announce that the combined choirs from USNA (Men’s Glee Club, Women’s Glee Club, and Gospel Choir) will be participating in the concert!

    The choir will be performing “You’ll Never Walk Alone” with classical artist Renee Fleming and “America the Beautiful” in a combined grand finale with a 500-voice choir and Beyonce. The event will include an incredible lineup of celebrities. Additional performers include Mary J. Blige, Bono, Garth Brooks, Sheryl Crow, Josh Groban, Herbie Hancock, Heather Headley, John Legend, Jennifer Nettles, John Mellencamp, Usher Raymond IV, Shakira, Bruce Springsteen, James Taylor, will.i.am, and Stevie Wonder. Among those reading historical passages will be Jamie Foxx, Martin Luther King III, Queen Latifah and Denzel Washington.

    The President Elect, his family, staff, and an expected 1+ million people will be in attendance!

    This is an incredible opportunity for our choirs and highlights the high esteem in which our ensembles are held – on a national and international level!!!

  15. Voice, Jennifer said that was rumor and they denied it. Jen is going to be doing the Super Bowl and I am happy to see her back and bringing that powerful voice of hers.

  16. Did anyone really think Bey was going to be denied? She said she wanted to sing at the Inaugural and darn it she is! lol And on another note she angled herself to perform at the Super Bowl too. lol I wonder if Bey is going to do a guest performance on American Idol too? lol Then get ready for Bey to sing at the 4th of July celebration at the National Mall in Washington.

    ***Runs and takes cover in the corner***

  17. VOICE THERE’S NO DAM NEED TO SAY DAT KINDA SHIT SAYN THATS ALL SHE’LL BE REMEMBERED FOR THIS IS HISTORICAL SOMETHING THE OBAMA’S WANTED OBVIOUSLY (BECAUSE SHE’S SINGING FOR THIER FIRST DANCE) AND SOMETHING THAT B REALLY WANTED SO IM HAPPY FOR BOTH OF THEM I KNO SOME PPL GNE COME ON HERE AND SOUND IGNORANT SAYING SHE FORCED THEM TO DO SOMETHING LIKE SOMEBODY ALREADY SAID HOW CAN YOU FORCE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE FIRST LADY TO DO SOMETHING?? NEWAYS I HAPPY AZ F*CK!!!

  18. This is such an historic event, I’m just happy that Obama will be sworn in! My only hope is that she doesn’t try to upstage Obama. This is his time, not the Beyonce Experience part 2. Whatever song she sings, I just hope she doesn’t ruin it with all those runs she does. Congrats to her and the other artists, but all of us will be apart of this experience.

  19. @ Voice

    Jen’s reps denied an invitation, stating it was a rumor.

    The Obamas love Bey…Barack asked for her autograph the first time he met her at his own fundraiser, adding that he normally doesn’t do that.

    Thanks Curtis for the Sunday update!

    @ Tinnah
    That was not nice and so irrelevant.

  20. Come on now…..Since when is Jennifer Hudson one (weak) cd havin’ butt a bigger star than Beyonce? I have her (Jenn) cd, it is tired. I like her as a talent and wont take it as EXTREME as some of you insane black women that PERSONALLY hate Beonce as if she forgot to help you pay your mortgage. Is it that damn serious? From day ONE Bey has contributed as well as supported and campained for Barack. She as well as Mary, and Jay! RESEARCH PEOPLE …RESEACH! She is chosen ALL THE TIME for her mass appeal, and talent, and SHE CAN SING LIVE!!!!!. TRUST me she did not get the invite cause Jennifer declined….HOW STUPID is that! Jennifer has been thru HELL and back and chose to down play and just do the anthem at the Super Bowl and chill. That woman is in pain…respect it. Beyonce did the superbowl anthem as well but was out shined by Janet’s NIPPLE…so who pimps the game now……Barack said before that his kids love Beyonce and went to her show in Chicago. So dont down play the shit….she was invited and will perform and do a great job. leave the hate in 08! Wow…grow up! He could have asked all white performers……i bet less complaints would surface from our people! CRABS IN A BARRELL! DAMN!

  21. Great post@ I thought 2009 would be different.

    No problem@ Lola. However, thank Concrete Loop for that. LOL.

  22. Who’s performing isn’t the most important thing. Years down the road nobody will care who performed what and where. The most important thing is Barack Obama will be inaugurated as our first African American President and Commander and Chief; now that we will remember forever.

  23. Thats GOOD NEWS! She deserves it… To me thats better then singing the national anthem (which she has sang SOOOO many times). She needs to be a part of this historical moment! Im excited for her… Congrats Beyonce!!!!! HI HATERS 🙂

  24. LOL to all the LOSERS that said it wouldnt happen for her. Beyonce is that bytch and NO ONE can take that from her PERIOD! I wish I was there to see her KILL IT, and she is still flyer then the rest of dem!!!!

  25. @ Kriss …

    Because she is overdoing it. BIG TIME. She is demanding icon/legend/diva status. Diana, Janet and other black female icons did not force it. They did not go out of their way to align themselves with multiple icons (Turner, Ross, Streisand, James) or jump up and volunteer themselves to be part of arguably the biggest media event of the last 20 years. She’s an accolade chaser pure and simple who is not serious about her craft. If she was, she wouldn’t pump out sub par material just because she knows people are gonna lap it up. Nothing she does is original – from the jacked Fosse moves to the Robot routine she stole from Kylie Minogue. The girl is talented, but she needs to stop trying to force it … if it is meant for her to be a legend it will happen. i just feel like she feels she is entitled to a certain level of praise and attention and gets pissed if she does not get it. Real divas don’t demand the title, it comes naturally.

  26. @THISISME…SHUT THE FUCC UP!!! You sound ridiculous, Beyonce has been a legend and Icon BEFORE she stated she was aiming for that title, she just didnt know it…she is the next MJ, Tina Turner, and Barbara S. NO ONE in the game right now is doing it like Bey NOR WORKS AS HARD as she does, all them other chicks EXCEPT for MARIAH, A.K, and Jasmin Sullivan dont have a voice that can sing anything and sound great! Them other singers aint doin NUFFIN wit Bey so stop hating! Its well deserved and Im sure The OBAMA’S are honored to have her sing for them as she is EXTREMLY honored to have been asked to do the same. SO BEAT IT LOSER!

  27. @ Natalia

    Trick you shut the fucc up … THAT IS MY OPINION … DEAL WITH IT.

  28. Beyonce is not performing at the actual inaug. she is performing at night at a ball. The petition was about her not performing at the actual inaug. and she is not. Beyonce and her family are bandwagon kind of people! Beyonce was not supporting Obama until he was actually nominated as the Democratic Nominee with Hillary, Edwards, and that other dude..they were not supporting him when Oprah was, which was long before. Beyonce and co. are Texas Repulicans thats why DC performed at Bush’s inaug.. Its cool that she is performing but I just think its about her wanting to say “Im an Icon” or for her to be known in history rather than doing it because of the spirit. Just my opinion

  29. Oh brother! Oh well, I guess you can’t have everything. lol! Although I’m confused why obama/michelle wouldn’t want a more polished singer to sing for them. I think they should have went a more classic singer (gladys knight, natalie cole, etc)

  30. @VOICE get your facts STRAIHGT honey! They asked Jennifer Hudson to sing the NATIONAL ANTHEM and she declined. That has nothing to do with the 1st dance! Obama really likes Bey, he asked for her autograph at the Rally she attended b/c his daughters love her so much! So your wrong my dear!!!!

  31. @ TOSH Maybe your big ass can go there and sing for him, wit ya hatin ass! Your name SOUNDS FAT! LMAO Beyonce RULES!

  32. @ Kenny. I agree. I didn’t hear nothing about Obama from Beyonce’s lips, until a week are so before the election…and think that’s only because of Jay Z. (you know she days what he says! lol)..I bet if this were Mccain that one..Beyonce would have still made a plea to sing at the event. It’s more about her being in the limelight, than actually caring about the politician. It’s a disgrace how she forced her way into this. Ugh.

  33. LMAO at people being pissed cause the president and his wife chose who THEY wanted to sing their first dance. you can be mad, hope for a backlash, petition (that didn’t work the first time so i don’t know why you’ll try it again), throw a tantrum all you want and the fact still remains that the president and his wife made the decision and gave that honor to beyonce. yup, she’s moving into that iconic/legendary status whether people want to believe it or not. if obama is smart enough to be chosen president, he’s smart enough to know who HE wants to sing at this historic event. don’t get your panties in a bunch because you were hateful from the beginning and now you have egg on your face. her saying she wanted to be an icon has nothing to do with this. point still remains that obama wouldn’t have chosen her if he didn’t want her to be there.

    congrats to bee on such a huge honor and i’m sure she’s humbled and honored to be chosen. congrats to all the other performances who are also going to be part of this historic event.

  34. Thisisme, but praying for a BACKLASH though? I keep saying this over and over again, the woman is an entertainer, not a freaking character in a movie. And as for her “begging” her to be an Icon, she basically said that she didn’t want to be the “IT GIRL” and that she wanted to make music that last and be an Icon.

    The question was asked, how else she was to answer it? You are right that icons/legends don’t express their desire to be one but only because they are being “diplomatic”, just about every performer/entertainer desires to be that even if they don’t want to speak on it. Trust me on this. They want to be the best in their craft, they want to win grammys, they want to be remembered and have lots of awards. It is what it is.

  35. @ thisisme FUCC your opinion bytch it DONT MATTER! Your a hater and its obvious, it sickins me that even in the NEW year bytches and faggys (@KENNY) are still hating on a SUCCESSFUL black woman like Beyonce. No matter what you say Bey has worked hard to make her name in this industry. Why not be happy for her?? Noooo instead you wanna hate! FUCC ALL THE HATERS beyonce is that chick has been, will be, and has remained that for a while NOW! GET OVER IT TRICKS!

  36. @kenny,

    just cause you didn’t hear her talking about him doesn’t mean she wasn’t supporting him. she was at fundraisers for him back in march of 07 before he won the first caucas and everyone got obama fever. as a matter of fact, the first time they met was at that fundraiser when obama asked for her autograph because he was a huge fan of hers. i remember because it was a story on CNN. she has been a major supporter of his from the very start..let me go find the video so you don’t think i’m lying

  37. umm okay lol @ Natalia. Actually what I have found beyonce’s biggest stans are actually the ones FAT, BROKE, and UGLY…they are living through beyonce because they don’t have their own stuff, together. So they wish it was them on a yacht with jayz, prancing around in loreal ads, and butchering songs–so they could be somebody. People who have their stuff together, see beyonce for what she is. A medicore singer. lol

  38. @ tosha a CRISPY CREME is calling your FAT name! lol I dont know why but you just sound like a FAT low self esteem having chick…EATING TOO MUCH can back lash on you. llllsssss

  39. Tosha hit it right on ….

    As for Natalia, you can keep drinking Beyonce’s bath water if you want. Stans kill me! I don’t have to be up her crack and I’m not going to. But you have fun bashing anybody who doesn’t sing Bey’s praises sweetie, K?

    Ignorant heffa! LOL

  40. @ TOSHA??? Mediocre singer???LMAO BYTCH please she is one of the BEST singers in our time. Let me guess you think ASHANTI OR RHIANNA’S TONE DEAF a$$ sings better?? LOL Yeah right to the UN TRAINED ear!!! Only people that come close to Bey is Mariah, Jasmin S., Leona Lewis and A.K. THATS IT. I got my ish together chile. I attend Georgetown University getting my Masters in Science. Girl Im waaay ahead of the game sweetie! I know REAL talent when I hear or see it. YOUR JUST A HATER!!

  41. Anywho, all this talk about supporting a successful black woman, just because she’s a black woman..means I will never see some of these posters ever bashing Rihiana, Megan Goode, Jennifer Hudson (someone called her fat in this very topic and no peep from anyone), Letoya, and many other young black celebrities people feel they have a right to criticize..yet we are expected to grin and cheese for beyonce? nope, the chick is medicore singer that bullies her way into stuff. That why i’m not impressed with her being there. I am more impressed with the Mary Js, Alicia Keyes, etc who didn’t beg to sing ..and just got their invitations naturally. Beyonce is a begger! lol

  42. @Thisisme I dont care that you dont like BEY I mean..you wont be the first nor the last. But when you start HATING and wishing bad things on a person you DONT know personally HUNNIE we call that HATE. So Im not ignorant thats your stupid a$$…..Its ok to not like something but to say hateful things is what makes you an OFFICAL HATER!!! Its sad but funny! LOL IM DONE WITH YOU HOEZ….CONGRATS BEYONCE YOU ARE A LEGEND AND THESE WHACK BYTCHES CANT TAKE YOU!!!!!!

    IM OUT! 🙂

  43. right right i’m a “hater” YAWN. the only degree you are getting is a ged lol

  44. There’s no use in trying to explain, rationalize, or argue . Some people are hellbent on hating her 🙄

    The truth will continue to prevail: Like her, or not, she will continue to be successful.

  45. @tosha

    i really want to know why you think she FORCED her way into this? like i said above (posted a link and everything), she has been an avid supporter of his from the start. after the election, she did an interview with the associated press where she said and i quote “I feel like all of us, we’re ready to do whatever we have to do. Whatever they want – if they need me to volunteer, they need me to sing, I’m there, and I’m ready,” (curtesy of abc news). she never spoke about it again so how is that forcing or begging? she did say she’d volunteer in other ways and she said if they need her to sing, not i want to sing. i respectfully want to know how you came to the conclusion that she was begging and forcing. the way i see it, she can beg and force all she wants, but if obama and the inaugural team truly didn’t want her there, she wouldn’t be there. both barack and michelle have spoken out about being huge beyonce fans. last year, michelle took the girls to bee’s concert in chicago and they all loved it. to me, she was going to be part of the event because once again, the first family are all huge supporters of her!

  46. Natalia you sound like a hypocrite, you dont know any of us but your are leaving negative comments about fellow black women and men but your the first to call someone a hater. Learn how to use the word in the proper context people! NO one is saying Beyonce is fat or ugly, I am saying that the committe should have chosen a more appropriate artist for the first dance. To call someone else a bytch is a reflection of you, you seem to get angry over BS, which is sad because none of us know Beyonce. You know me more than her because I am actually responding to your dumb ass. Traffic is waiting for you to play in it, I suggest you take its offer.
    Some of you should stop thinking everyone is ugly because they have an opinion of Beyonce. Believe you Me Beyonce talks about other women too, so stop acting like people dont have a right to an opinion. Until Beyonce puts you on payroll there is no need to respond to me.

  47. ITS TO FUNNY TO SEE HOW MANY PEOPLE THAT HATE BEYONCE ITS ABOUT THAT TIME TO GET OVER IT….

  48. @ whoo. I believe she forced her way in, because of exactly what you noted. She knows, the obama girls are huge fans of hers. By putting it out there that she would “love to sing for obama,” it was a calculated move on her camps part. It was a way to put it out there so Obama and camp could hear about it. What is he going do say no? probably figured through her bone, since after all she’s only performing at a ball, not the actual inauguration. Thank goodness they are having a real singer do that (Aretha). And why was it so important for beyonce to sing at this? other celeberities are just showing up to show support. why couldn’t she just do that? once again she is trying to make it about her..and her stans are falling for it! you have some actually saying she’s going to “outshine” the obamas..wth! lol.. it’s just ridiculous..

  49. I’m guessing people will still be commenting on this thread tomorrow. lol Go Bey stans!

  50. Im over here cracking up. Mario what good. When it comes to her boyyyyyy she can get people work up. Like i said it not about her it about the obama. So go Obamas. I know im going to be crying all day tuesday and wearing my obama shirt.

  51. It wouldn’t be good for JHud to sing at this event. It’s all about the Obamas and I can see some media outlets trying to make it about her and her family tragedy.

    Do your thang Bey! And you know the event won’t be official without our man Stevie Wonder LOL!

  52. Why is all the emphasis on Beyonce? Mariah, Mary, Alicia, and Shakira (All Super Talented and Just as Great as Beyonce) are also performing. I’m sure it is an honor to perform for the president, and I’m sure she will give a good performance, but let’s not pin the gold star on her like she’s the only one hitting the stage and invited.

  53. @tosha

    well thanks for your reasoning, but that didn’t make sense to me at all. just because the obama girls are fans of hers does not warrant her such a HUGE honor. i don’t know what her camp has to do with this because this interview was done directly after the election and the interviewer brought it up, not her. once again, she never said “i love to sing for obama”, she said if they need her to, she’d do it. to me there’s a difference, to you there’s not and that’s fine. obama could have said no, but he gave her one of the BIGGEST honors so he must really want her there (no amount of begging and forcing can get you a gig like that if the president didn’t want it). hell, they gave her the biggest performance on the official kickoff of the inauguration events too (she’s closing that with america the beautiful with a 500 people choir backing her up). she may not be singing at the actual inauguration (although i read on people.com a while back that she was going to be there, and btw, i think bee’s a real singer…ie grammy’s DIL, 3 performances at the oscars, listen on oprah, the woman can sang but if you don’t think so, that’s your opinion) doesn’t make this any less significant. i mean, the couple’s FIRST dance immediately after the inauguration? to me, that’s an honor in itself no matter what ball you are singing at. beyonce never said it was important for her to sing at this, you and other bloggers assumed it was important because she expressed her desire to do whatever they wanted her to do. she didn’t just show up and support because obama and his team wanted her to sing at two separate events. how is she trying to make it about her? she’s not the one who decides who sings and i’ve not read anyone in here saying she was going to outshine the obamas. you are the one making it a big deal cause she was chosen and saying she wants to make it about her. no body in their right mind would turn down such a historic moment…..you and i both know that you wouldn’t and neither would i so why should it be different for bee?

  54. ooooooo.
    A true sign of Stan Psychosis Syndrome is in full effect!! Not only can they not bask in the glow of their “win” for their “icon” in a healthy manner, they inevitably start to reject the initial euphoria and then begin to foam at the mouth and spew hate and homophobia.

    But please stans – do continue. I’ll just take copious notes for my thesis…..and perhaps I’ll even come across one of you and take you back to the lab and strap you in while I complete my for research for an antidote like Will Smith did in I Am Legend.

  55. I knew this would happen. The minute that it was announced that she would be doing anything in this inauguration, I knew it would start e-wars. There are so many other celebrities and performers that were invited to the inauguration to do multiple performances, but everyone wants to talk about Beyonce only. Beyonce can sing ten thousand songs, at the end of the day, the only person that matters is Barack Obama. And for the record, will people please stop this Beyonce/Jennifer Hudson battle. Jennifer Hudson’s rep said that Jennifer was never asked to sing at the inauguration. That rumor was started the minute Beyonce volunteered her services to the media. It is ridiculous that way people argue back and forth over this girl.

  56. anyway, happy birthday Michelle Obama! It’s tomorrow! She’s going to have a great weekend/week! Now that’s somebody I wish I was! lol

  57. interesting how people who like beyonce are immediately referred to as stans but if a “stan” refers to someone who writes paragraphs bashing beyonce as haters, then it becomes “i’m not a hater because i don’t like her, i speak the truth” blah blah blah. call the people who like beyonce crazy stans all you want, but it takes two to tango!

  58. @ whoo. To be honest I didn’t bother reading your post, because having “discussions” with beyonce stans–is like hitting your head against the wall! So, whatever you said–i’m sure it made a great case for beyonce..and perhaps it strengthens you skills to be an excellent attorney if you ever choose to be one someday (like obama/michelle lol), however i don’t feel like reading it! lol! it’s all good tho!

  59. @Majesa
    YOu are totally right. Its so easy to get involved into an agrument when you are trying to make a comment and someone challenges you on your opinion.
    I think the emphasis is on Beyonce because we all know that the Knowles squeezed their way into the party just to say we did this and that. Also, the fact that Beyonce talked about doing whatever they wanted in so many interviews it seemed like she was begging…where as the other artist were humble and waited to be approached rather than contacting every tom dick and harry just to be invited. Beyonce’s image is based on sex, she doesnt write her own music nor is involved in anything political like Alicia, Shakira, and Mary so as I understand she is most popular right now but is that what we really want most poplular over substance? It is a huge honor for everyone who is participating but the media and many others are making this about Beyonce. In all honesty Beyonce will be a 1 percent portion of the real value of that day.

  60. I heard about this earlier. Good for Beyonce, she did mention she wanted to perform for the event. So congrats to her Im sure she will sing something just as elegant as “AT LAST”. Im glad they asked a more modern and sophisticated artist like beyonce THIS IS ABOUT CHANGE and I dont care what anyone says Beyonce has an angelic and beautiful voice hands down. NO IM NO STAN….I love me some Mariah Carey but she reminds me of Mariah so much with her drive and hunger in this game. BIG UPS TO BEE!!

  61. She’s not singing at the inaugural (thank ya jesus!) she’s singing at the ball…ya ask me that’s second fiddle LOL. If anyone is hatin its probably bey cause she got stepped over for Aretha.

    It’s still a honor though and I sure hope she don’t blow it with wig swinging and booty shaking..oh and that screeching to reach the high notes..lawd please no!

  62. hey lady! its a shame all this back and forth about this girl im just happy that the event is going on for a wonderful man thats all that really matters….

    but they will keep arguing…i love beyonce but at times i feel like i dont need to defend her because the people that put her down for no reason usually end up proving my point…

  63. @tosha

    considering the fact that i had a rebuttal for each one of your points, i knew there was a chance you wouldn’t read it and comeback with the infamous “oh you are just a stan comment” LOL! anyway, have a nice day. this post has entertained me because for a while there, i was utterly bored!

  64. @ wohoo

    Perhaps some people are called stans because it is IRRATIONAL to throw around the word hate. Have you looked it up in the dictionary? It is an extreme term to apply to someboby who has a differing opinion other than yours. It makes the person who uses the word irresponsibly sound paranoid and delusional. Ergo, it also makes you appear to be an obsessed fan who cannot just accept ANY other reason why somebody else wouldn’t like or obsess over someone to the same degree as you do.

    I hate (ha!) to sound so clinical, but it’s rather sad. Why not just say jealous, which makes you sound only infantile, but less than obsessed, which is better, no?

    And finally, and this is for BOTH sides, I wouldn’t care if Zombie Eartha Kitt rose from the crypt to sing at the inauguration, and then proceeded to attack the guests and ate their brains, it’s not about who SINGS, we have our FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT, people!!!!
    So good luck, Beyonce, or whoever else gets to floss, just don’t f_ck it up!!

  65. @JAZI

    Singing at the BALL is waaaay better then the National Anthem at the inagueration! So thank ya Jesus TO THAT! LOL
    I Personally love Beyonce’s voice. She hits all her notes and can sing a phone book and make it sound spectacular. She sings better then that DREADFUL RHIANNA, NON-SINGING ASHANTI, LOUD SCREECHING J-HUD, AND ,MAN FACE LIGHT VOICE CIARA! Beyonce was the BEST choice.

  66. @banjiboi,

    i never called anyone a hater (i implied some were being hateful by hoping for backlashes and such). i was merely pointing out the fact that it’s not okay to call others who differ in opinions as haters, but it okay to refer to others as stans. that’s hypocritical! if it’s irrational for people to throw around the word hate, why isn’t it irrational for people to throw around the word stan? both have negative connotations associated with them although hate is the stronger meaning of the two, but still……..

  67. I wish I had the power to shut down every freakin black media web site and blog out there. This is damn shame. We are suppose to be celebrating our new incoming president and the majority of you want to focus on Beyonce Knowles. This is a crying shame.

  68. We ought to be ashamed in here cussing and acting ignorant when the first African American president and family are moving to the white house.

    I am not a Beyonce fan but I am GLAD she is invited. Why wouldn’t she be invited? Hillary Clinton is part of his cabinet and she wanted him to LOSE! We’ve got petty grudges over whose gonna sing? Really?

    I am so happy!!! I can’t wait. I wouldn’t care if she sang Crazy in Love up there, I couldn’t be happier.

    I still think Jennifer is going to make a surprise appearance at Oprah’s bash.

    Yeah us!!! Amen.

  69. What is the age group of some of you? Some of these comments are so immature and ignorant. Come on now, America is about to celebrate the first black president of the United States. That is what this moment is about.

    This is a educated, smart and caring man who wants to get our country back on it’s feet. And to top it off he is married to a 125% black beautiful sister standing beside him who is also educated, smart and caring. Why are you guys sitting here behind a computer arguing over who is singing what and where.

    Yes, it is time for a change and we need to embrace this moment in our time.

  70. @ wohoo

    Hey, thanks for your measured comments. But please re-read my comment. I never said that you, yourself, referred to people as haters, I was merely making a general point. And you’re right, the term stan is simply used for comic effect. There’s nothing really hateful about THAT word. And the word hateful still like say, implies “hate”, right? why not come up with comical term for those who disagree? Like “Damn, you just stay “jade”, don’t you?”

    And although I admit that I like the fun in the back and forth and drama and stuff, I try not to lose sight of the fact that the girl is a star, and is obviously talented and respected enough to be chosen, even though I tend to differ on her talent level, and I won’t lose any sleep over it.

  71. @mario you have to go to court u is a mess lol. It going to be a nice event regardless who performing. So let ALL OF US just moosah and chill out and enjoy TUESDAY JAN 20, 2009.

  72. i find it funny that tosha goes on and on about someone she doesnt like…i mean making a statement is one thing but going on and on is another….

  73. @lady yeah girl ive been a bad boy! i was suppose to go with my grandmother and others…oh well thats how it goes…kids stay out of trouble….

  74. and for whoever said beyonce kept saying in many interviews that she will do whatever they want her to do you are wrong she stated it once and the haters ran with it. i also find it funny that A. K. SAID THE SAME EXACT THING WHEN TYRA ASKED HER ON THE TYRA SHOW AND NOONE IS TURNING HER COMMENT INTO ANYTHING MORE???? am i missing something here?

  75. Sure I am happy for Beyonce and can’t wait to see what she is going to do. But what I am most proud of is the strides that this country has taken to Elect an African American President! It is a NEW DAY and I can not wait to watch history unfold and to see what the future holds.

  76. Good for her. She is singing at the Neighborhood Ball not the official inagural. This ball is more community based and laid back. His daughters love Beyonce so that is probably why all the younger stars are at the neighborhood ball that will be on ABC. The official ball will someone classic, I am sure.

  77. @mario lol you is too much. You stay warm this weekend. It going to be negative degrees upstate. Holla at me on tuesday and tell me how it went. I have some bail money too lol.

  78. Hey CURTIS what going on. Over here talking with MISTER MARIO. What is going on with you.

  79. I feel you, banji. There is always a difference between true “hating” and constructive criticism and opinion and it seems to me that if your opinion is different than the person giving it, then it is hating. When that is not the case. If I was to say that Jill Scott is better than beyonce, that’s not hating that’s giving my opinion. But if I was to say that since Beyonce is a talentless, songstealing bimbo, I hope that she fails, gets depressed and commit suicide(hypothetical, I don’t want that to happen).

    That’s over-the-top. Especially over an entertainer. But…peeps many times use the net to vent things that they would never say away from it. So….you have a great weekend, man.

  80. Trying to keep warm, Miss Lady. It is cool enough to freeze hell, 1000 times over. LOL.

  81. ……and now, let’s get back to having sum fun, for a change!!!!

    Got this blind item from Gawker:

    “This year’s awards season is going to be interesting as these two Divas battle it out for awards. For one Diva, it’s going to be Karma. It looks like she is going to pay the price for disrespecting her fellow Diva during her time of grief.” [2DownFront)

  82. whats up curt! Lady i dont even think i can post bail…so if you dont see me for a while …you know where im at… i might give ya a phone call…

  83. YOu people sound so cattdamn ignorant celebrating the first “black” president who isn’t even black. YOu are only proving the allegation that you v oted for obama because of his father beign from kenya. HIS MOTHER IS WHITE. HE IS BIRACIAL. HE IS NOT BLACK!!!! I’m so sick of this chit. Halle Berry, Obama, ect. It woud be nice to c elebrate a FIRST BLACK!!!!!!

  84. @ Curtis why you LOL at me. 🙂 I am just saying. hehehehehe

  85. Okay now that Mario has emabrassed me I think it is time to go.

  86. and please don’t get mad, but a commenter’s response at Gawker that made made me laugh was,

    “JHud and Beyowulf… JHud’s gonna kill it at the Super Bowl.”

  87. Congratulation Lady B

  94. Speaking of Single Ladies, I’m addicted to that song and video. I get the biggest kick out of watching the fans’ remake. Some of them are pros…others are just so danm hilarious!

  98. lady haha know i cant top him but i have the moves ill have to make another video and post it, they were making fun of my tutu last time lol it was embarrassing i asked for it i guess lol

  99. Why oh WHY do you continue torture us Mario? I was anticipating that very interesting video you know [ C’ mon Mario in a tutu] and B’s involment in your err…trouble with the law. I’m sure Lady is disappointed, too 🙁

    It’s alright though…I’ll stop with the guilt trip now LOL.

  100. @mario

    Yo, jus’ kiddin’. I’m just doin’ my job of being a jader! You’re actually one of the few Beyonce supporters whose comments I enjoy reading – you don’t get all rabid and stuff!

    Hell, if even if you was stalkin’, I know you’d be one of the “harmless” ones!

  101. Trust me guys you really don’t want to see it. It is a MESS! LMAO

  102. You guys won’t see my take on SL on youtube. I’m too shy 🙁
    Besides, I don’t have the routine down. I haven’t really try. I mostly freestyle when it’s on. I’ll live it to B and you of course Mario 🙂

  103. What is going on here?…I never read so many negative comments on Brown Sista…for the most part everybody keeps things respectful on here, while still being able to get their point across…

  104. ^^^^^^^^
    It only happens when there is a Beyonce post. Even the so-called white blogs are blowing up over this. I’m still gagging at the 600 and counting comments over at The Huffington Post.

    She do that to people.

  105. banjiboi aww yall are getting me all mushy in here haha thanks!

    adoration 4 b you seen the video? were you one of them that comment and laughing at my tutu? (just so yall know i dont dress like that im more concervative then it sounds it was just for fun haha)

    SnijanaFleur because i love you and all my other peoples at brown sista i may do a short clip of single ladies for ya and post it within the next couple days…if i can remember

  106. TOSHA SHUT UP!! HOW DARE YOU TRY TO PUT ALL OF BEYONCE’S FANS IN A BOX. YOU SOUND LIKE A STUPID JEALOUS IDIOT. GET A LIFE!!! I HOPE YOU CRY WHEN YOU SEE BEYONCE PERFORM, CUZ GUESS WHAT?? SHE IS STILL GONNA PERFORM!! WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT. THE OBAMAS LOVE IT SO WHO GIVES A DAMN WHAT YOU WANT? CRYBABY A$$!

  107. i donno sometimes you people onlines hurt my feelings 🙁 just kidding…its nice that everyone is having a nice day….though there were some negatives comments in here im leaving happy 🙂

  108. No the ball is more important than the actual inauguration, if so, this proves how clueless you all are, oh and DUMB. I guess to a booty shaker the ‘dance’ is more important, to an educated person, the point at which he is sworn in as 44th President is the most important point of the entire affair. DUMMIES. Beyonce got your minds all twisted up. Beyonce brings out the worst and dumbest of people, it wasn’t like this with Lauryn Hill or Aaliyah or any past celebrity and they were attractive, some of them were light, the reason is the tactics that the KKKnowles use and it rubs off, the energy of hate, competition that they put out there that has never been put out there like this before, its actually sad to me.

  109. Mario sometimes feelings do get hurt.
    One trick is to not let strangers get to you. Strangers are what we really are to you. It may not appear this way because of the good jokes along with the laughters. At the end of the day, you know who Mario is, not us. You may take the good, and you can ditch the bad 🙂

  110. 1. 100 + comments (check)

    2. pyschoticness, name callin & cursin( check)

    3. Challenging ppl’s OPINIONS(check)

    4. Over looking ALL aspects of the post & concentrating on ONE person( check)

    Yea, it’s another Beyonce post… smdh

  111. @ Mario. Yes I saw your lil tutu video. It was real cute. Just like you! Hehehehehe!

  112. adoration 4 b…ok now im even more embarrassed *blushing*

    FYI news just came out that beyonce will be singing “at last” as her song great choice of song i think and she sings it well live

  113. “At Last” is an awesome choice. Base on her performance history, B won’t disappoint. My fav performance of hers to date of the song is the live AOL one.

  114. its funny that people said they hope she doesnt shake her @ss everywhere…i mean even i wouldnt do that at this type of event. i cant wait to see what she wears!

  115. @ mrsjones..yes I will be crying…crying over joy about Obama, Michelle and small michelles, finally being able to move into their new home Jan 20th…calling me jealous b*tches, fat, ugly whatever..is not going to change my opinion that beyonce is a medicore talent…but in the end it’s not about her it’s about the Obamas… Go OBAMAS!

  116. @whoo..yeah I figured at much you keep writing me ten page papers, and life’s too short..so I had to let that go! lol..and I’m sure you were bored..I’ve come to realize most beyonce stans live incredibility boring, unaccomplished lives–which why they live through her..and defend her with all their might! lol..but it’s all good..have a good weekend!

  117. @tosha,

    i live an unaccomplished life because i was bored today? i was trying to be CIVIL with you, but clearly, you are a dumbass. you must have been incredibily bored or else, your behind wouldn’t have been on here writing a thesis on a woman you can’t stand as well. i don’t have to live vicariously through her to make myself feel better, but you seem to feel like the only way to make yourself feel better is to spill bs and you spill the bs with all your might. you seem to be lacking some brain cells, i suggest you get that fixed!

  118. @whoo. who wrote this essay me or you? lol it’s all good hon..calm down

    @tosha

    well thanks for your reasoning, but that didn’t make sense to me at all. just because the obama girls are fans of hers does not warrant her such a HUGE honor. i don’t know what her camp has to do with this because this interview was done directly after the election and the interviewer brought it up, not her. once again, she never said “i love to sing for obama”, she said if they need her to, she’d do it. to me there’s a difference, to you there’s not and that’s fine. obama could have said no, but he gave her one of the BIGGEST honors so he must really want her there (no amount of begging and forcing can get you a gig like that if the president didn’t want it). hell, they gave her the biggest performance on the official kickoff of the inauguration events too (she’s closing that with america the beautiful with a 500 people choir backing her up). she may not be singing at the actual inauguration (although i read on people.com a while back that she was going to be there, and btw, i think bee’s a real singer…ie grammy’s DIL, 3 performances at the oscars, listen on oprah, the woman can sang but if you don’t think so, that’s your opinion) doesn’t make this any less significant. i mean, the couple’s FIRST dance immediately after the inauguration? to me, that’s an honor in itself no matter what ball you are singing at. beyonce never said it was important for her to sing at this, you and other bloggers assumed it was important because she expressed her desire to do whatever they wanted her to do. she didn’t just show up and support because obama and his team wanted her to sing at two separate events. how is she trying to make it about her? she’s not the one who decides who sings and i’ve not read anyone in here saying she was going to outshine the obamas. you are the one making it a big deal cause she was chosen and saying she wants to make it about her. no body in their right mind would turn down such a historic moment…..you and i both know that you wouldn’t and neither would i so why should it be different for bee?

  119. more term papers: lol

    @tosha

    i really want to know why you think she FORCED her way into this? like i said above (posted a link and everything), she has been an avid supporter of his from the start. after the election, she did an interview with the associated press where she said and i quote “I feel like all of us, we’re ready to do whatever we have to do. Whatever they want – if they need me to volunteer, they need me to sing, I’m there, and I’m ready,” (curtesy of abc news). she never spoke about it again so how is that forcing or begging? she did say she’d volunteer in other ways and she said if they need her to sing, not i want to sing. i respectfully want to know how you came to the conclusion that she was begging and forcing. the way i see it, she can beg and force all she wants, but if obama and the inaugural team truly didn’t want her there, she wouldn’t be there. both barack and michelle have spoken out about being huge beyonce fans. last year, michelle took the girls to bee’s concert in chicago and they all loved it. to me, she was going to be part of the event because once again, the first family are all huge supporters of her!

  120. 149 comments…150 including mines 🙂 Beyonce is always a HOT TOPIC. People are so funny, People hate her but LOVE to talk about her and comment on ANY stories about her though. ITS WEIRD……

  121. AND LOL @ Tosha who IS AGAINST Beyonce performing for the Obama’s but writing 4 PAGE letter comments!!! LMAO Please get a life.

  122. Um, true volunteers don’t offer to volunteer. They just DO IT.

    And as far as i know, she didn’t hit the campaign trails or throw any fundrasing efforts, concerts or otherwise. she didn’t film any PSA’s in support of O or urge her (st)fans to vote.

    She sang for the Bushes. So if she’s not a Republican, then it smacks of transparency and opportunism. Any artist with intregrity stands firm on their political beliefs ask the countless artists who asked Bush and McCain to refrain from using their songs on the campaign trail such as Heart, John Mellencamp, Kanye West (remember Katrina?), The Dixie Chicks and Bruce Springsteen, to name a few.

    “I feel like all of us, we’re ready to do whatever we have to do. Whatever they want – if they need me to volunteer, they need me to sing, I’m there, and I’m ready,”

    Sorry, but lame. Sing? Okay, sure, sing a song. I’m sure all the history books will remember her in a special chapter.

    Just remember – people like James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Donny Hathaway, Aretha Franklin, Gil Scott-Heron and Marvin Gaye. THESE were ARTISTS and SINGER/SONGWRITERS who made a difference with their activism through art. They didn’t send a prepared statement via AP to call, and they’ll come. They just DID IT.

  123. And as far as making long comments, perhaps those who do, pro and con, have something intelligent to offer to the debate.

    And perhaps those who make snide, childish little snipe-bites should go back to the sandbox and sit in their piss-stained diapers and stick out their tongues at the grown folks.

  124. SMH@all these damn essays. Just say good for her and move along. Some of yall need to get your priorities straight. Seriously

  125. @ lucky8

    please read the post above you. now why don’t YOU move along. Seriously.

  126. DAMN WE R NOT MAKIN THE INAUGRATION ABOUT MY WIFEY BEYONCE WE R NOT TALKIN ABOUT DAT THE HATERS WITH DA PETIONS N YOU TUBE HATING VIDEOS WAS TRYNA DO ERRTHANG N DERE POWER TO STOP HER FROM PERFORMING BUT GUESS WHAT IT DIDNT WORK BECAUSE SHE IS HIGHLY FAVORED BY GOD SO DATZ Y I FOR ONE IZ MAKING A BIG BIG DEAL ABOUT IT BECAUSE IT IS SO WHATEVER TO T HE HATERS FUCC YALL SHE ITS GOING DOWN WETHER YALL LIKE IT OR NOT OH WELL AS I ALWAYZ SAY YALL BAD LOL DAMN I LOVE IT..

  128. wow 162 comments on this post
    related to who????
    the answer at 1million buck BEYONCE
    lol
    good night everyone
    oh and before I go
    it’s true that’s this night is not really about Beyonce
    it’s about the OBAMAS

  129. Actually the day isn’t about the Obamas either… it’s really about the AMERICAN PPL. It’s about this country getting a competent President( that we elected i.e. employed) and him doing the job that we employed him to do the RIGHT way. This day is about starting the long process of straighten out this piss poor economy & saving ppl’s jobs. This day is about ending this long drawn out war. It’s about healthcare, better schools, & etc etc etc etc. The inaugartion is the a day for AMERICANS to celebrate that hopefully we will have a NEW & BETTER chapter in this country. With that being said who cares who is performing or presenting, those ppl can’t do or havent done the things I mentioned. Until Beyonce or whoever(celebrity) can get the ball rolling to bring 300 out of work autoline workers their jobs back… she can go & sit down. It’s about YOU Americans & saving YOUR basic needs. So plz kill all the petty arguing.

  130. @ banjiboy

    Beyonce canceled her album promotion overseas to campaign for Obama and urge voters to vote. She also visited various cities and polling precincts with long lines encouraging voters to be patient.

  131. Well said, Blame it on tha Rain, but we both know your post will fall on deaf ears or go totally ignored.

    Several business announced layoffs or closings today.

  132. he he he he ! I bet the first song will not be `If I were a boy` or `Single Ladies`

    But still eager to know what song will be.

  134. SMH….Wow. We are about to inaugurate our 1st Black president and who esle in the music industry can top or cause just as much buzz????? Only BEYONCE. And thats all I have to say about that one…..God Bless EVERYONE involved on this historic day. Black, white, gay, straight, Beyonce stans, Beyonce haterz lol…We are all Americans and we all have to stick together through these tough times. Go Obama!

  135. Beyonce and Deron made those God awful shirts for Obama and she gave 4 million to drug abuse centers after cadillac records… Wow she wanted to sing very badly.. I wouldn’t be surprised if she didn’t have Jhud’s people knocked off instead of Balfour if not J. Hud would be singing and EVERYONE KNOWS IT including BEYONCE.

  136. It’s time to PAR-TAY, y’all. Here’s my plan: first, on Monday, me and my wife are going to the Martin Luther King Parade. Here in Los Angeles, our MLK parade is the biggest west of the Mississippi. Then on Tuesday, me and my wife will be gluded to the TV to watch all of the inauguration festivities. My wife says she’ll make us a nice breakfast; I’ll get the champagne and some strawberries to go with the champagne. I know that all the music and singing is gonna be slammin’. And as I’ve mentioned before, I’m truely blessed in that as a 13 year old boy, I saw with my own eyes, and heard with my own ears, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. give his “I Have A Dream” speech live on TV. On Tuesday, I will see a large part of that “Dream” realized when Barack Obama is inaugurated as our next president. Let’s par-tay, y’all.
    \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ :o) :o) :o) :o) :o) :o)

  137. @Lola

    Your right… it will prolly fall on deaf ears, but what you said about yet ANOTHER business doing layoffs only feuls my point that we need to focus on keepin or basic neccessities i.e jobs & etc . Hey I am all for a party, but what happens once the party ends? Are we gonna continue to see the layoff trend & the war trail on? If so, how long will we began to see SOME kinda progress. I understand that ppl have their views on the entertainers that will be @ the inaugration, but it should not be so much of a problem where one has to make all out war about it. The concern should lie w/ those things( economy & etc) b/c @ the end of the day Beyonce & whoever will make their money while millions of Americans will be jobless & penniless. Be excited ppl, but don’t lose focus, we CAN’T afford to.

  138. Obama stated last night on CNN that he and Michelle PERSONALLY selected Beyonce to sing that song!

  139. She already ruined the surprise(obamas wanted it to be a surprise for all but same ole bey never lets an opportunity slip by to make it about her) …lets hope she doesn’t ruin the song screeching to hit the high notes.

  140. @ lola

    Okay, point taken. But that Republican thing still leaves a bad taste in my mouth though. And the more pertinent issues in life such as the economy, police brutality against blacks, and substandard education for minorites does not fall on deaf ears.

    Carry on!

  141. For those who are interested, I’m going to post the event live over at my blog, Beezo Blue

    http://beezospureandsimple.blogspot.com/

    I’m sure the event is going to be as beautiful and exciting as we all hope it will be. Should be interesting to see Mariah and others perform as well.

  142. Yall are blowing this way out of proportion, the entertainment is just a step up from the help, okay the very Chocolate First Lady and Her First Man want beyonce to ‘perform’, as I am sure they chose the caterer, florist etc….

    They don’t want her serve in any official post, and they definitely don’t want any of her Momma’s designs/

  143. It’s just a song. It’s on par with the bride and groom first dance, bride and father first dance, prom. Nobody is going to care about Bey. It’s about the Obamas, all eyes on them. I can’t believe some of the comments on here.

    It’s just ONE freaking song!!!!!!

    I personally would have loved for them to dance with Whitney singing, “I’ll Always Love You”………….that would have been the SHIT!! In my book and my book alone, but Bey got it so whatever.

    I can’t wait to see what Michelle O is going to be wearing.

  144. I didn’ t even take the time to read all of your comments Like i said Once again, Beyonce will be remenbered for this and this Only, Unless you are a psycho stans or someone that stays on hers 24/7 .

    Love

  145. WHY DA HELL DIDNT MY COMMENT SHOW UP! BUT NEWAYS @ VOICE BEYONCE IS ALREADY AN ICON/LEGEND TO MANY INCLUDING OTHER ARTIST BUT OBVIOUSLY NOT YOU AND SHE’S ACCOMPLISHED SO MUCH IN HER LIFETIME MORE THAN OTHER LEGENDS LIKE ARETHA, TINA, N MARIAH HAS JUST TO NAME A FEW AND YOU CAN JUST ADD THIS TO HER 100 PAGE RESUME LOL!!! N @ YACHI WHY WOULD YOU WANT I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU TO BE SONG ITS TALKING ABOUT HAVING TO PART WAYS BUT SHE WILL STILL LOVE HIM THATS NOT A SONG TO SING FOR A HAPPILY MARRIED COUPLE I NEVER WANT BARACK AND MICHELLE TO SPLIT!!

  146. I love Beyonce and I think she is very talented but I am starting to choke on her. In other words its overkill. She needs to go on vacation for a while. Remember what happened when we overdosed on JLO ??? she fell off completely for a few years. Anyhoo, check out EgyptSaidSo.com

  147. I know I’m late but I can’t be on here all the time. Some of you people (including moderators) can drive someone insane with your buffonery, ignorance and ghettoism.

    Any who I don’t care that’s she’s performing actually. I won’t be there and won’t know a thing so more power to them. I’m so tired of hearing about this and just can’t wait for all of this to blow over and people become normal acting.

    BANJIBOI……….you are always on point with your sound reasoning and intelligence. I just wonder why the blogs focused so much on Beyonce when others are going to perform and be there right along with her? Well it doesn’t matter so……..may peace be with you all and enjoy having a mixed president. I will.

  148. This comment comes a bit late however I’ll still post it for future readers. I often wonder why the people who don’t fall all over themselves and profess their un-dying love for Beyonce are considered “HATERS” why is this? Some people hit it on the mark I think she is talented and accomplished I also this she is spotlight and accolade hungry, it’s plain to see. You don’t have to be a hater just because you don’t dig her music. I’m not a fan of her bubble-gum pop styled stuff but I’m still proud she’s a sister at the top of her game.

    Beyonce did make it known that she wanted to be a part of this historic event on every circuit she appeared. Jennifer Hudson was hand picked by President Obama himself either way. I pray ot all turns out beautifully. However again not being a Beyonce stan doesn’t mean you’re a hater. Grow up childish ones.

  149. @ Foxie Millero
    Beyonce was asked about it, and she said she’d to do watever they wanted her to do if they needed her to sing (which they obviously did because THEY) (the obama’s) love her talent (not you) she will. which i only heard ONCE i never heard about it again so please dnt start that shit.

  150. People on here is crazy. I feel like this obama wanted JHud to sing but she turned it down. Beyonce beg to sang but it not about them it about Barack obama family.

She a get performer and can dance her ass off. She can not act her way out of a paper bag. I look just as good as her no jealousy or hate over here. You just lick her puss and her butt too long. You jump on everyone if they do not agree with you when it comes to her. You make me laugh lol lol lol.

  155. Beyonce is no one I will be able to enjoy, regardless how long she stays out there trying to hog every show in town to bring attention to herself. She is pathetic. Proved it even more by lying that she was going to sing her own song, it didn’t hapapen. She did an Etta James classic, everry one knows that. The thing is Beyonce did a lousy job, you could tell she pieced her trying to sing in with the quality singing of Etta. I am sure she only got to do it because Jay-Z was mentioned by Barack during the campaign. Jay did not pay Beyonce any attention that evening, and he did not refer to her as his wife, (or Be as he usually does). He was very professional as though he was talking about just anyone and plainly called her Beyonce. I really do not believe they are married. She just keeps trying to get a free ride, while she is getting worse–that movie didn’t do shit and this last cd sucks. Unbelievable when she is hyped that high.

    Now on to the good stuff. Barack and Michelle make a fantastic couple. And Barack sure does know how to treat a woman. Neither one mooches of the other. They both have law degrees and their own careers before the White House. He writes well and she doe the fashion thing outstandingly. Now, that’s what I am talking about.
