    Best performer alive. I triple dare you to mention someone better on stage than this woman.
    Show was amazing! And what I loved the most was the support from her family. Jay Z was so cute dancing and singing along in the crowd.

    Same leotard look, same hair same moves. Just same ol same. I haven’t for one day understood why people praise and worship this woman. No personality, very pretensious – talking about female empowerment yet jealous of every female competition or outright sabotaging the career of an up and coming female artist by asking to sing their song and what not or asking producers not to work with them and stuff. And has she ever released any free song for these her hives ever? Human beings are gullible I swear.

      September 6, 2015 at 1:58 pm

      Oya,go and create your own superstardom and do things differently.Its that same leotard and same hair and moves that has made her one of the top performers in the world.Some people just like to talk rubbish about other ppls success as if they can a do better themselves.You dont understand why people praise her and u think all these negative things about her, YET you still managed to find ur way into an article about her.

    • Nola

      September 6, 2015 at 2:26 pm

      Honestly. The woman has been wearing the same leotard/bodice/swimsuit ish since “single ladies”. Plus she is always too focused on perfomance than vocals.

      It’s more sad that 34 more idiots liked your comment.
      She’s pretensious, have you ever met her?
      She’s a sabotage, check how many other female musicians love and respect her. Who you do that to someone who sabotages you?
      I can’t with you people. Seat it Nogeria and talk about what you would never ever dream of knowing.

    No difference in Beyonce n Kim K- both are sexual objects. No reason for Beyonce to feel superior, infact Kim K is more business savy than Beyonce! My 2 kobo

    • Juwon

      September 6, 2015 at 3:00 pm

      Yet, it’s Beyonce who has the net worth of $250 million. As opposed to Kim K’s $52.5 million. Yea, Kim K stay winning.

    • Curious

      September 6, 2015 at 3:07 pm

      Glad you said your 2 kobo, because then, us sensible folks are free to discount it as rubbish talk. All you Kardashian clan lovers can try as hard as you want, it will not take! No one is going to take those clowns seriously because they are legit untalented. Even Kim herself is well aware that she has no talent that is why she is super quick to bare her ass and tits for any soft sell or tabloid publication that will have her. Kim that is the butt of jokes all over the world is the one you are comparing with Beyonce? Beyonce that was invited to sing at the Inaugural celebration for the president of the most powerful country in the world? Beyonce that is arguably one of the most powerful and successful artists in the game right now? Abeg when we wan yarn nonsense, make we think am small before we type. Beyonce’s name should not even be mentioned in the same sentence as that Kim. Water get level abeg!

    • Why curious

      September 6, 2015 at 6:31 pm

      She wasn’t invited to sing at the inauguration. Her team fought their way in there and she warmed her way in by writing those unpunctuated letters to Mrs Obama who initially didn’t have the time of day for her. Or do you mean the second inauguration where she lip synced the performance and deceived the world into thinking she was actually singing at the moment and then released a diss song after she got caught and called out?
      If she is so talented, why does she have to wear leotards and expose her butt, thighs, and boobs? What is the difference between that and what kim does? And if you’re talking money, kim has only been out a few years. give her time.
      She is at the top because she steals people’s songs, steals moves, style, lip syncs her way through her performances and comes out to portray this fake sweet persona that her fans gobble up without thinking.
      At least kim and other celebrities keep it real with their fans unlike this fake hoochie mama who is the complete opposite of what she preaches.

    September 6, 2015 at 1:52 pm

    If you didn’t watch her performance pls just shut up! Should she use long skirt to dance??? And comparing her to Kim, why must you think women should compete with each other??? How can you even compare beyonce to any1 in the industry?? Pls watch the performance and learn hardwork and Perfection! No Falling on stage, no wardrobe malfunctions just genius!!!

    It is always an issue when a woman embraces and expresses her sexuality. Y’all never had a problem when Michael Jackson, usher, Chris Brown among other’s grab their crotch and have sexually suggestive dance moves. #femaleempowerment #blackfeminist

    • Nola

      September 6, 2015 at 4:37 pm

      Facepalm at Natu’s comment. I don’t understand why internet feminists want to die on the cross for beyonce and nicki minaj’s right to shake their bums. This is why we can’t have nice things.

    • DD

      September 7, 2015 at 12:29 am

      Natu has a valid point ,which you conveniently ignored.Why is the expression of sexuality only ever an issue when its being done by a woman? Its not about celebrities right but all WOMENS right in this case.It is this sort of thinking that leads to young girls being blamed for being raped or artacked because they didnt their dressing didnt adhere to a certain standard.It is this sort of thinking that is the reason why some women in certain parts of the world have to be completely covered up except for their eyes whilst men dont ave to.iT is also this kind of thinking that I and other ladies alike were not allowed to enter the grounds of my little cousins Sec school because we were wearing trousers.Keep deceiving yourselves as if you are not being treated like second class citizens.

      September 6, 2015 at 9:56 pm

      You have no clue what female empowerment is about. If your idea of female empowerment is for a woman to expose her nether regions in the name of entertainment, then you are on a very long thing!
      Chris Brown and Michael Jackson are (were) rightly dickheads for their crotch antics. Neither of them look ( looked) mentally stable by the way so I wonder if you could not come up with better examples to support your illogical point.

      Women like Beyoncé are part of the problem. They make women look like sex objects as opposed to intellectual beings. One thing i know and have experienced is this… It may take time for you to get respected for your brains but if you as a woman prove it, there is no stopping you. There are many women who have succeeded in roles that were originally dominated by men and I strongly believe that these women are the ones changing the perception on women’s abilities. They prove that we are not sex objects rather we have brains and are capable of doing great things.
      I don’t know how it is possible to glorify someone who sang the song ‘bow down bitches’ (I have never played that song) . That last word should never be used on anyone or any woman for that matter no matter the terms of your relationship with that person.
      I am not a feminist cos I think that movement fights some wrong battles but I am a strong advocate for women empowerment and showing women that they can do it all. Have a great career and be an excellent mother and wife. As long as we continue to advocate for looking like sex objects I don’t know when we will get the respect we want.

      This Natu ehn? You just always talk rubbish!!! Are you not tired is spewing trash?You have mixed up feminism with stupidity! What exactly about beyonce or her performance is embracing sexuality????? You’re a goat sha. What nonsense comparison are you making with MJ, Chris and trey abi who did you call again, you’re really stupid, it makes me pity you! Did you ever see MJ shirtless, even the Chris brown sef how many times has he held his crotch and danced in any x rated manner. See let me tell you Natu mumu, beyonce allows the increase in the objectification of women as sex object!!! She incenses sex stupidly in all her performance, it is not about any any dumb sexuality.So because adele and Lorde sing better songs and dress fully, they are not embracing their sexuality? Urgggghhhhhhhhh!!! Natu quit being an idiot!!! Lol, with all her women empowerment, Solange that is always fully clothed is the one that had to fight for her with her husband in the elevator. You know absolutely nothing Natu and it is people like you that have the loudest voice when it comes to feminism that have no clue what it is about. BN POST MY COMMENT, IM NOT EVEN SMILING.

    So what she wears a leotard. So what she has the same hair style. This woman has made a life for herself. She has worked so hard she has already been able to set up her great great grandchildren for life. Her family will never have to worry about health insurance. Her family will never have to worry about being able to afford an education for their family. It doesn’t matter the circumstances of what she does to have the fame and wealth that she has. Its her life and she’s the one working for it. She worked very hard to get there. She didn’t let her talents go to waste as most of us do. She wasn’t afraid to get turned down. She has been doing performances since she was a child. Just like our lovely Britney, Christina, and all these other females that are in the spot light. Beyonce has been married one time. Had her first child from her husband AFTER she was married and all this is was done as a grown woman. So therefore who the hell are any of us to judge someone who had the courage to want to live a better life and actually go to whatever lengths to get there.

      lool I guess it depends on your definition of greatness…
      I didn’t even watch the video and I won’t even open it after posting this comment (I mainly came here for the comments).
      If greatness is about exposing body to show what you are made of then I don’t know that you have the definition right.
      That woman who does not have money but has made sacrifices to ensure that her kids go to school is great. That woman (whether she is a singer or not) who goes to work and shows that she can excel without exposing her body is great.
      It is very superficial to assume that wealth defines greatness.

    when all ur albums debut at No. 1 On the album chart come speak to me

    when all ur albums win grammy awards comes speak to me

    dangerously in love-5 grammy awards
    bday-1 grammy award
    I am…. sasha fierce-6 grammy awards (her and adele hold the record for most grammy awards won by a female artist in one night)
    4-1 grammy award
    beyonce-3 grammy awards.

    call me when ur favourite musician accomplishes this record

    why is everyone behaving as if beyonce is naked. cant u see she is wearing nude leggings. it gives the illusion that she is naked by she is completely covered. she looks good in those leotards and she still has the fire to perform after all these years. compair her to Britney spears or christina aguilera who have lost the fire to perform and entertain us on stage.

    yes, her dance moves are the same,cause they are iconic dance moves. I wouldn’t be happy if she changed the choreography of single ladies.

    I am a HUGE fan of Beyoncé but I am seriously tired of these leotard outfits. They are getting very old and so redundant. Some of the outfits did not go with what she was performing either and I hate to say this, but the show was a little tacky for me. Loved her creativity, loved the performance factor but it needed to be polished up starting with thinking of something new with costumes.

    Naija and complains. Is there something that we wont complain about. Someone said I like Bey but I’m tired seeing same outfit.

    Let me ask you something, do u want to see her in OLEKU or dinner gown dancing Single Ladies. And who are those foolish people comparing her with that B*tch call Kim. Do you know what it is to be the Queen of POP. For MTV Europe and Africa to have a weekend dedicated just to celebrate YOU.

    Some of you guys need to go get a life and work effortlessly to build and manage that life. KIM is wayyyyyyyyyyyyy downnnnnnnnnnnn and that’s one of the reason she married Kanye, to be close to the Queen but I’m glad she’s not getting the attention she dreamt of.

    Which artist in America does the Prince and his wife see while there. Do you know what that means.

    Y’all are just mad that Beyonce is still da King! All ur faces want to be like her real bad.
    Because she can serve vocals and dance damn well y’all turn to her outfits. They’re 8 different leotards in this page alone but u insist that it is the same leotard. OK! What about Michael Jackson, the king who wore the same hat, the same white shirt, the same black trouser, the same whit socks and black trouser arguably at all his performances? And don’t your faces; Rih, Nicki, hell even tiwa savage show a lot more skin than KangBey?
    About the routines, MJ had the same dance routine everywhere. Whenever he performed a song, he repeated that routine so why should KangBey change hers? The dance routines for Crazy In Love, Single Ladies, Run the World, Partition, etc are ICONIC – they’re global and Bet can’t change them if she wanted to.
    Just get yo lives and focus on yo faces. Why do u feel the need to enter a Bet thread if she isn’t the Kang.
    This woman is loved even by yo fave so get yo life!
    Which of yo faces can sing like her or even sing as flawlessly as her when she is thumping her chest? There’s a reason why Obama, his wife, Messi, Aguero, Nasri, Ronaldo, yo faces etc love this woman and attend her concerts.
    Champion of Feminism, Queen of the Grammies, Queen of BET Awards, Queen of VMAs, Queen of RnB, Queen of Iconic Singles, Queen of Iconic Dance Routines, Queen of Live Performances, Queen of Privacy, Queen of Songwriting, Queen of the Silver screen, Queen of No Release Dates, Queen of Live Vocals, Queen of Iconic Albums, Queen of Unbothered, Queen of Awards, Queen of Respect, Queen of Inspiration, Queen of Music. ETC
    She stays winning y’all!

    I recommend haters to get the King’s VMA performance last year, her Billboard tribute 2011 where she won Artist of the Millennium (yea she did) and performance, her I Am….World tour DVD, Mrs. Carter show DVD, On The Run Tour videos, Super Bowl performance, all her Grammy performances, her tribute to Stevie Wonder this year, her backstage rehearsal for 1+1, VMA 2011 performance, hear her sing listen, save yo asses to afford her album on iTunes, etc to see why she is the KangBey.
    As for fashion, just check outout her MET Gala sheer dress….that outfit slays whatever yo fave has ever done fashion-wise. Or check out E! Style Star: Beyonce or her celebrity style story to understand why she is a style icon. When Beyonce cut her hair, CNN carried it! Yo fave can only dream of that. And NOBODY wears leotards quite like Bey! She didn’t need to attend the BET awards to win Video of the Year for a video she shot on her iPhone. Rih was in the room but Bey won best RnB singer in absentia… Beyonce is the kinda bitch.
    Tiwa savage, yemi alade and sheyi shay wanna be her bad. P square even stole from her dance routine in Sweet Dreams and called it Alingo that all of u were dancing to…….did u even know this? Just watch sweet dreams video (shot in 2008/2009) and confirm.
    Beyonce rules!
    Yoncè all on his mouth like liquor!
