Beyonce Wants You To Listen

Beyonce’s video for her new Dreamgirls single “Listen” premiered today on MTV and you can check it out here on You Tube.I think the video starts off rather slow and boring but Beyonce eventually lets “Sasha” loose and really kills it towards the end.The fire and emotion not only in her voice but in her movement and body language really brought the video on home for me.Though I don’t think this song will make much of a dent on the charts, I openly state right now that I do believe Beyonce will walk away with an Oscar for best oroginal song.You can also view a few pics of Beyonce posing with Disney characters Princesses Jasmine, Belle and Cinderella at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Beyonce was at the Magic Kingdom theme park to tape a television segment for the “Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade,” which will air December 25 on ABC-TV.Piacere!!

  1. Beyonce looks really ashy and very drab in those photos.Great dress but the hair and makeup look like they were kinda just thrown together.Oh, and the video was great.Does anyone know if Beyonce wrote or co-wrote Listen.The Oscar goes to the writer or writers of the song, not the singer.

  2. Beyonce does look a little ragged from the neck up but that dress is beautiful on her.Great scoop on the pics too, not even Beyonce world has them yet.Whoever your souce is rocks :banana:

  3. I am sooooo tired of Beyonce but I am ready for the Dreamgirls movie to come out already.

  4. I hate videos that make me wanna not like the song. They could have done better than that, but the song is coo.:roll:

  5. I hope Jennifer Hudson gets a nomination as well for Original Song for Dreamgirls. Though I like Listen I love I’m Not Going ( And I Am Telling You). JH tore it up. That song leaves me with goosebumps.

  6. I am with the comments from Dana above. I am really tired of her. But hey, I guess she is trying to get all of the attention now, since Jennifer Hudson is worded to have stolen the show. The makers of dreamgirls were afraid that people would get tire of her when she dropped her album. I guess they are right, because I have had it.:roll:

  7. Jennifer has my vote! Beyonce looks ashy as hell in these pics whats the deal. The video was too Diana Ross too fake and too much screaming. She doesn’t have a strong voice and someone is really trying to bring something out of her that is really not there. She wouldn’t have soul in her voice if you gave it to her. Sorry B! She’s not a horrible singer but with all this exposure and fans she should sound better than that!

  8. I HOPE THAT THE ACADEMY WON’T GET TOO CAUGHT UP THE THE BEYONCE HYPE AND GIVE JENNIFER HUDSON HER FAIR PROPS IN THIS MOVIE AS WELL AS FOR HER SINGING TALENT. BEYONCE HAS GOTTON BY MOSTLY ON LOOKS MORE THAN TALENT. I DON’T BELIEVE HER LAST ALBUM WAS WORTHY OF 5 GRAMMY’S, NOT TAKING ANYTHING AWAY FROM B BUT LIKE EVEYONE ELSE I AM SICK OF HER SHE NEEDS TO TAKE A BREAK. SHE IS VERY PRETTY, & A AVERAGE SINGER BUT NOT THE GREATEST BY FAR. JENNIFER’S VOICE IS MUCH MORE POWERFUL AND MATURE. B HAS PUT THE WORD OUT THAT SHE WANT’S AN OSCAR SO WE’LL SEE HOW THE ACADEMY RESPONDS.:dance:

  9. i hope the Academy doesn’t hop on the Beyonce Hype train like the Grammies have been doing. She didn’t deserve all of those Grammies and she definitely doesn’t deserve an Oscar. I really wouldn’t be surprised if they gave her one. It might be time for them to give another Oscar to another light skinned black woman besides Halle Berry. Yes, I said it. Halle didn’t deserve that Oscar for Monster Ball. If anything, she should’ve gotten it for Queen or Losing Isaiah. Not that movie! However, I hope Jennifer gets some more attention for the movie. They should have her release a video for “And I’m telling You”.

  10. If either one of them get an Academy Award I will be happy for them.Go Jennifer and Byy :banana:

  11. WAIT TIL THE MOVIE COMES OUT TO FORM YOUR OPINION YOU HEAR WHAT CRITICS SAY AND TAKE THEIR WORD AS GOLD…BEY AND JEN WILL BE UP
    AGAINST SOME REAL ACTRESSES THAT HAVE BEEN ACTING FOR YEARS
    YOU MIGHT SEE THE MOVIE AND THINK THEY BOTH DID OKAY
    BUT NOT GREAT WHO KNOWS..THERE ARE SOME BIG FILMS COMING OUT NOT JUST DREAM GIRLS…GET THIS HYPED OVER A.I.D.S WHY IT KILLING US
    STOP WITH ALL THE BEYONCE HATE SHE THIS IS HER JOB,LIKE U HAVE A 9 TO 5 THIS IS HERS SO WHAT SLACK ON JOB YOU REPLACED SO I’M NOT MAD MA MAKE YOUR MONEY LET THESE HATEFUL AS WOMEN KEEP HATING

  12. AND IT WAS RAINING THAT DAY SELF HATE IS BAD FOR YOU LADIES WATCH IT

  13. and butt sucking is bad for you moni.Sucking Beyonce’s butt crack dry won’t do much for you either so spare us the hate garbage.Writing in caps like your ass is crazy is annoying as hell too.

  14. first of all the definition of hating needs to be defined. when you hate on someone you find everything possible to hate on them about, whereas when you are stating an opinion about the performance of someone you are being critical, or should I say “real.” No, I am not taking the critics word for it. I am going to wait and see the movie. However majority of the time, being a media and criticism student myself, you have critics like Roger Ebert that you just don’t really ever go wrong with. Yes, i do think jennifer Hudson is a better singer and actress than Beyonce. no, I have not seen the movie and yes a part of me is going by all the hype surrounding the movie. However, I have seen Beyonce’s acting skills and unless she hired some tyoe of an magician to make her performance look as good as Angela Bassett performance, it will not be hard for the American Idol newcomer actress, Jennifer Hudson to do the damn thang! when comparing their singing, oh ny goodness, Jennifer got Beyonce, to all you hard core Beyonce fans, I’, sorry, but that just can’t be concealed. It’s real! If you don;t believe me as far as the singing goes, I dare you to listen to the song “AND I AM TELLING YOU” when Jennifer Hudson does it. It brought tears to my eyes. I was in awe. The girl could blow Beyonce out of the water any day if you ask me, not that I would want her to, but she could do it.

  15. LIKE I SAID BEFORE “WHY DOES ANYBODY WHO IS NOT A BEYONCE FAN HAS TO BE A HATER?”….EVERYONE DOESN’T FEEL THAT SHE IS THE GREATEST, I THINK B IS TALENTED AND BEAUTIFUL BUT SHE NOT THE BEST I’VE EVER SEEN SINGING OR ACTING….AND YES, SHE IS WAY OVERATED AND OVER EXPOSED AND YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A HATER TO SEE THAT…I FEEL THAT MOST PEOPLE ARE SIMPLY TIRED OF HER MORE THAN HATING, I MEAN HELL TAKE A BREAK. ITS LIKE SHE’S HOGGING THE SPOT LIGHT, SCARED THAT IF SHE STEP BACK FOR ONE MOMENT SOMEONE WILL TAKE HER PLACE….WHEN YOU KEEP FORCING YOURSELF IN PEOPLE’S FACE THEY GET TIRED OF YOU AND YOU QUICKLY BECOME OLD NEWS….GO AWAY LET US MISS YOU A LITTLE WHILE… LIKE MOST WOMEN I COULD NEVER BE JEALOUS OF BEYONCE BECAUSE SHE’S GLAMOR AND HOLLYWOOD THATS HER JOB. JUST BECAUSE SHE’S LIGHT SKINED AND BEAUTIFUL EVERYONE ASSUMES THAT BLACK WOMEN ARE JEALOUS OF HER JUST FOR VOICING THIER OPINON…SO MAYBE YOU’RE THE ONES WITH THE SELF HATE ISSUES…IF ITS SUCH HATE AND JEALOUSY WHY DOESN’T ALISHA KEYS, MONICA, TAMIA OR EVEN JANET HAVE THE SAME ISSUES SURROUNDING THEM…. I THINK THAT MOST OF US REAL SISTA’S UNDERSTAND THAT LIGHT SKIN CAN GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF A BOOST IN HOLLYWOOD WHICH HAS HELP HER CAREER A LOT…. AND I DON’T HAVE TO SEE THE MOVIE TO CLEARLY HEAR THAT JENNIFER’S VOICE IS MUCH MORE POWERFUL…I JUST WANT THE ACADEMY TO BE FAIR AND NOT CAUGHT UP IN STATUS AND BEAUTY LIKE USUAL…AND NO I’M NOT JEALOUS I LOVE MYSELF…

    :brownsista:

  16. Dana WHENEVER ITS POST ABOUT YOU NEVER HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY ALWAYSSSSSSSSS…
    AND THE OTHER TWO BIRDS THAT POSTED AFTER U
    ARE YOU LADIES DARK SKIN ? I’M PICKING UP THAT VIBE FROM YOU

  17. LIKE I SAID AGAIN AND AGAIN…ANYBODY THAT DOES NOT LOVE BEYONCE HAS TO BE A HATER OR SOME WOMAN WITH SKIN COLOR OR SELF HATE ISSUES… WHAT IF WE ARE DARK, BROWN, OR WHITE WOMEN WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT HAS TO DO WITH HAVING AN OPINION. THERE ARE PEOPLE OF ALL SKIN COLORS AND RACES AND EVEN MEN THAT ARE NOT FANS OF BEYONCE SO I GUESS THEY GOT ISSUES TOO AND THE MEN MUST BE GAY, RIGHT? I BET IF THIS WAS FANTASIA SOMEONE DIDN’T LIKE YOU PROBABLY WOULDN’T HAVE NOTHING TO SAY…..AND NO SWEETIE I’M NOT DARK NOR DO I HAVE SKIN COLOR ISSUES JUST BECAUSE I’M NOT A BEYONCE FAN, I LOVE ALISHA KEYS AND MONICA… MAYBE YOU’RE THE ONE WITH ISSUES SINCE YOUR DEFENDING HER SKIN COLOR SO HARD AND KEEP ACCUSEING EVERYONE ELSE OF SELF HATE FOR HAVING AN OPINION OR NOT BEING A FAN…YOU MADE THE COMMENT THAT WE MUST BE DARK SKIN, LIKE BEING DARK MAKES US JEALOUS.. & WHAT THE HELL YOU LOOK LIKE…THERE IS NO HATE ANYWHERE IN MY MESSAAGE & NO I’M NOT A BIG FAN OF HERS, BRITANY SPEARS, BRANDY, OR 50 CENTS EITHER, SO I GUESS I GOT ISSUES WITH WHITE WOMEN, BLACK WOMEN AND BLACK MEN TOO, RIGHT?… SHE’S JUST ANOTHER PRETTY FACE, PLEASE GET OVER IT…& YOU’RE JUST ANOTHER CRAZY IN LOVE BEYONCE FAN…..

    :stop:

  18. Oh my goodness wer are going thru all of this and Beyonce isn’t thinking about us. I understand both opinions but I must say, that I agree that everyone is not a hater. Beyonce has strong fans like Michael Jackson, I am a fan of M.J and have been for years but not everyone has liked him in the 80s or Today. I honestly must say, I think beyonce is talented but the truth of the matter is she is over-exposed and people all around are getting tired. I hope the movie is good and yes….we have yet to see who the oscar goes to:???:

  19. HATS OFF TO MY GIRL STEFJAY. TO BURST SOMEONE’S BUBBLE, I AM A LIGHT-SKINNED SISTAH MYSELF. I DO NOT AGREE WITH THE RACIAL ASSUMPTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE BASED UPON MY COMMENTS.I DO HOWEVER BELIEVE THAT BEYONCE IS NOT WHAT THEY HYPE HER UP TO BE, AND IF PPL CANNOT ACCEPT MY OPINION ON THAT THEN I SAY THAT IS THEIR PROBLEM. I AM SO OVER DISAGREEMENTS BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT HUMAN BEINGS DO, THEY DISAGREE ON CERTAIN THINGS, AND IF U LIKE HER MORE POWER TO U, BUT IF I AM NOT FOND OF HER, DON’T GET ALL ON MY CASE, JUST RESPECT MY OPINION.

  20. WHY WOULD I EVEN NEED TO BE JEALOUS OF A WOMAN WITH 10 TIMES MORE MAKEUP ON HER FACE THEN I HAVE EVER WORN ON MINE, BESIDES THAT, I AM GOING TO SCHOOL RIGHT NOW TO BE AN ACTRESS, AND I ALSO SING AND THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND, I KNOW THAT I WILL MAKE IT TO THE TOP. WHEN I DO, I DON’T EXPECT EVERYBODY TO LIKE ME OR HATE ME BUT I THINK THAT EVERYONE SHOULD BE ENTITLED TO THEIR OWN OPINION ABOUT ME.

  21. WELL I HATE THE DEAMGIRLS SOUNDTRACK BECAUSE ITS SO SQUARE
    NO SOUL TO IT AT ALL BESIDES JENNIFER GETTING DOWN WITH THE CLASSIC SHE PERFORMED IN THE MOVIE. AND THIS IS NOT ABOUT DISSING MISS B.

  22. I MUST SAY THOUGH WHEN YOUR ENTIRE CAREER AS BEEN SPOON FED TO U FROM DAY ONE AND NOT TO MENTION THAT U WERE ALREADY IN CORPERATE AMERICA BEFORE U WERE INTRODUCED TO THE WORLD LIVING IN A 8 BEDROOM MANSION THAT YOUR FATHER PROVIDED, BUT WHEN EVERYTHING IS RIGHT THERE ITS SO MUCH EASIER. THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO DEFINITELY HAVE HAD TO STRUGGLE A LITTLE MORE EVEN DIANA ROSS HER DAMN SELF DIDN’T HAVE IT QUITE AS EASY. BUT THE ONE THING THAT SHE DOES HAVE THAT MESS B IS LACKING IS VULNERABILITY WHICH IS THE KEY TO ANY SUCCESSFUL DIVA AND THE LONGEVITY IT BRINGS TO THEIR CAREER
