Lauryn, Beyonce & Alicia Rock The Bells

Lauryn Hill headlined this year’s Rock The Bells Festival on Governors Island in New York City. The event was attended by numerous celebs, including several that Lauryn pulled on stage to join her. When closing out her set, Lauryn called to the stage Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige and Beyonce Knowles, who each joined the veteran singer and danced along as she performed.

Alicia also called out Swizz Beatz, Chris Rock, and Jay-Z, who I think got more screams than anyone- even his wife.

  1. I’m sure Lauryn shut it down, and it’s great to see all that star power there to support. I bet they had a shindig.
    SN: I thought Lauryn was callin them out?

  2. Wow! So glad to see Ms. Hill where back where she belongs. It’s also great to see the likes of Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Mary J., etc. show their support. Let’s go ladies! I love it.

    Sidebar: Beyonce looks great without makeup. I’ve seen people on various blogs (not this one) say she looks ugly, so I just had to see the pics for myself. She looks fine to me. The only thing that looks terrible is her hair, and that can be fixed easily.

  3. Sorry for the typo: I meant *So glad to see Ms. Hill back where she belongs.

  4. Lauryn looks great!

    Not feeling AK’s outfit but yes that girl has a beautiful glow.

    Bey looks old as chit w/o makeup.

  5. Alicia’s baby bum,p is adorable her and her “man” look happy .

    Mary and kendu were the cutest.

    LAURYN! i am so glad to see her, That’s how you know how much of an great artist someone is, She’s not half naked, She is not popping her butt on a man, she is not swinging a blond weave she is just performing, and look how happy everyone is, I will buy 400 copies of her cd if i have to,lol I love a real respectable woman!

  6. Didn’t here good reviews about Lauryn’s performance. WU, Snoop, & Tribe got some good feedback.

  7. Aww…couples night out,looks like fun times!!! I am glad Lauryn is back and folks are embracing her. It was just nice to see artists support one another when lately it has been beef this and respect me that….I think it will take a while for her to get back to true performance form but she gotta start somewhere. I don’t expect her to be the Lauryn of former days but I am fine knowing she won’t be putting out no radio pop so that will be a refreshing change.

  8. Oh I forgot Bey is fine without make up but that hat is not it….Her real hair would have looked better.

  9. It’s good to see Lauryn back performing. I hope she’s making a new album; I look forward to it.

  10. L-Boogie needs to put out a new album. The girl is a beast when it comes to singing, writing, rapping and acting.

    Alicia Keys looks adorable pregnant.

    Make up artist sure do work wonders because Beyonce looks like an average light skinned chick without it.

  11. Ummm…which female celeb doesn’t look average without the makeup on or the glitz or the glam? They all do. I have yet to see a celeb kill the red carpet not wearing any makeup. Maybe Halle could, but she’s an exception. People say average like it’s a bad thing. At the end of the day, these celebs are HUMAN. They are “average” (normal)people. They just have more fame and money than we do.

  12. I didn’t say it as a bad thing. Dang, why is it that when someone makes a comment about Beyonce, folks are quick to attack. It ain’t that serious people.

  13. @JUST A THOUGHT
    Thank You! I’ll never understand when people say that. They’re no more or less “average” than you. Nor does it change the fact that that person is still pretty. It’s like when people point Alicia acne, as if that’s not something normal, in order to make it seem like she’s “less pretty” because of it. People are making it seem like it’s the 1st time we’ve seen this child without makeup. I’m sure if anyone really wanted they could pull a couple up on Google. She’s still a pretty girl enough with the “average” nonsense. That ish ain’t gonna help your self esteem. Lastly I’m not sure why her being “light skin” was mentioned or had to do with anything…

  15. i’m so moved by lauryn and always have been. She inspired me to go natural a long time ago. the star power at the concert respects her also. And who cares how Bey and Alicia looked, they were there to enjoy themselves and respect their peers. Stop judging ppl about the wrong things. They don’t have a heaven to put you in.

    Peace

  16. Why do people get so up in arms when others have an opinion about Beyonce Knowles?

  17. @Bri: I didn’t mean to come off as attacking you. I’m sorry if it felt that way.

    @TAM: Yes! I wasn’t trying to offend anybody. I was generally speaking because I’ve seen the same thing on other blogs. I just don’t understand why people say that as if these celebrities are superhuman or something.None of them look like they just stepped of a magazine cover naturally. That’s photoshop and not reality, but it doesn’t make them any less pretty or attractive. Oh well. We all have our opinions.

  18. Lauryn is acting like a crack head asking for change. Dang my girl looked crazy as hell.

  19. Beyonce is known widely for her talent as well as her beauty, that is why people make comments about her w/o makeup. It make us feel better about ourselves to see her look somewhat average. You know ” I guess I am not so fuck up after all” 🙂
