: What a difference a few years makes. 3 years ago MediaTakeOut.com reported to you that Simon Cowell was not at all impressed with Beyonce. Actually here's his exact quote to Esquire magazine in 2005:
I find the whole Beyonce thing really mystifying, She's not sexy, she hasn't got a great body and she's not a great singer.
Well now it appears that Simon's singing a different tune. That's cause MediaTakeOut.com has learned that Simon has invited Bey to perform on the finale of his hit show X Factor in the U.K. And apparently Bey has accepted his invitation. A UK source is quoted as saying, “Beyonce and Cowell can put their differences from years ago to one side. He is way past it."
He apologized years later...Mediatakeout.com get your story straight. He actually said that he thought Ashley Simpson could sing better and that Beyonce didn't have a nice body. Then later a year or two later he recanted. He said she came a long way, she has a great voice, she looks great, and that she's a hell of a entertainer. He ate his words, because he realized he was wrong duh it happens. When she first came out she wasn't all of that. She wore unflattering hairstyles, and her voice wasn't half as good as it is today! But, she has voice coaching lessons, changed her style, and even started acting. She's a triple threat for sure!
SIMON'S RIGHT,BUT BEY HAS MORE MONEY AND FAME THEN ALL OF US SO SHE COULD GIVE A CRAP HE THINKS.. AND YOU ALL KNOW IT,SHE'S MAKING MONEY,MOVIES,SELLING ALBUMS.
DO PPL LIKE HER BECAUSE IS A GREAT SINGER OR A GREAT 'ARTIST'.
i would do it!! because obviously he was blind and deaf a couple of years ago!! and you know what they say u only get mad when it's the truth!! beyonce knew what he said was a lie so she wasn't sweating it she probably laughed!!
can someone please tell me. why would he have to hate on beyonce? he might not have as much fame. but this dude is sleepin on millions.. no need to hate; why can't someone have an opinion w/ out being a hater? i agree w/ him. Now lets see how many of the B. GO HARDS call me hating.
@Mike2919- Yeah Simon is right. Bey's an awesome performer but let's keep it real. There are millions of black women that look just as good if not better than Beyonce. Hell Farrah was KILLING Bey in looks which is WHY they had to let her go. Too much competition. Beyonce's body is average as well..
Millions of sisters got her shape. Could it be her fake hair? Well we know that's not the appeal considering all of us right now could go to the chinese/arab store and buy ourselves a 22-26 inch blonde/brown yaki.
Can she sing? well EVERY BLACK PERSON UP IN HERE KNOW there are SEVERAL of SISTERS who could BLOW Beyonce out of water.
Like I said though, Bey's strengths lies in her committment, determination, and drive to succeed in what she does regardless of the consequences. If took alot of moves (bad and good) for her to get where she is today.
Simon is DEFINITELY NOT a hater. He is worth WAY more than BEY and he has three successful PRODUCTION companies across England. He isn't doing anything but speaking his OPINION. Damn why do yall act like people aren't entitled to an OPINION. If HE doesn't BELIEVE BEY IS HOT then he doesn't. So what. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Not every man is going to find her attractive. Sure her false image of sex appeal and glamour is alluring but sans her weave, make-up and expensive outfits, some people might find her ordinary.
MTO Y'ALL SOME THIEVIN ASS [EXPLETIVE], THIS [EXPLETIVE] WAS POSTED YESTERDAY.....HERE'S THE LINK FOR PROOF. ORIGINALITY NEVER HURT NOBODY. U EVEN USED THE SAME PIC AND EVERYTHING. SHAME ON U.
YEAH I JUST BET HE NEEDS HER NOW CAUSE HE WANTS HIS FINAL SHOW TO GO OUT WIT A BANG AND HE KNOWS BEY CAN BRING IT! MAN HE KNOWS SHE CAN SING AND DANCE! MAN OK SHE IS A KNOCK OFF FROM TINA TURNER BUT HEY DONT EVERYBODY IN THE INDUSTRY BITE OFF PAST ARTIST STYLE! LOOK AT MICHAEL JACKSON! EVERYBODY BITIN HIS STYLE! OH WELL GOOD FOR BEY SHE AINT TAKIN IT SERIOUS! MORE EXPOSURE FOR HER!
wtf is wrong with this damn hater?? bey is my fav. singer n she sexy as hell...she cannnnn singgggggggg tooo..this dude is just seriously being a d!ck...ugh...didn't this same bat say that j hud can't sing either..man if bey performs there, ugh...that would just kill me...y the heck ask someone to perform if they can't sing...just another a$$hole....do ya thing Bey!!!
Simon has invited Bey to perform on the finale of his hit show X Factor in the U.K. And apparently Bey has accepted his invitation.
- - - - - - - -
Well then she's a damn fool. WHY??? What does performing on some bootleg UK show do for her at this point in her career? Does her father or her have any principles?
Matthew has always said you don't make decisions simply based on emotions. In the music/entertainment industry, whether you like someone or not, whether you agree with them or not, if there's something in it for you and it's not dragging you down, sometimes you have to learn how to bite the bullet.
If people were making decisions based off emotions, there would be a lot of great singers out today...
Simon can say and do whatever he wants. Bey will never turn down any form of work. That thing is a workaholic. Before she goes on the show I hope she gets those edges touched up cause they look a mess in that pick.
what do you expect from a CRACKA...
He likes FLAT AS S CRACKAS.
He's a TINY man, and because he's a BRIT, he's UNCIRCUMCISED and he's trying to get LEONA on the COME UP!!!
Of course there are women that look and sing better than Bey, but for him to say she's neither is just plain ole hatin. Simon is gay. He needs to go find some shirts that actually fit his weird looking body instead of wearing his lil brother's clothes.
Simon Cowell will say or do anything to keep his name in the headlines and money coming into his pockets...if its going against the grain in 2005 and saying those things about Beyonce, its not surprising. Anything for shock value. And now, due to timing with the release of her new album, he wants her on his show...for ratings no doubt. He plays the celebrity game sleazy...anything for a buck or some spotlight.
Well sorry to say I agree with one thing he say and that is that she cannot sing...she screams and when she tries to hit notes she sounds as though she is singing under water.... SORRY!!! I AGREE WITH THAT PART>>> The sexy thing I don't know what is consider sexy... but she does look nice and shapes good...Guess he cannot handle curves on a lady or a nice coke bottle shape...He might be blind but he is definitely not deaf... that is for sure...
TRUST ME he still feels the same way. ITS JUST A RATINGS & MONEY THING!!!
I ALWAYS agree with Simon's judgements and the was he described Bey was on point to the letter. He is just a very smart guy and a BETTER BUSINESS MAN...
Simon Cowell will say or do anything to keep his name in the headlines and money coming into his pockets...
....He plays the celebrity game sleazy...anything for a buck or some spotlight.
Well the same can be said about Beyonce as well, dont cha think? Why else would you accept the invitation to perform on a show for someone who had such negative assessments of you and your talents?
Beyonce is not the greatest singer but that's pop music.
You take a nice loking guy or girl or group of girls and make them sound 10 times better in the studio.
Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce and the list goes on.
Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Luther Vandross (R.I.P.) are real singers.
sorry for repost
his picks for performers is ONLY by current album releases...nothing more! If Beyonce didnt have an album out, she would NOT be on his show! Its all for popularity and ratings...
I am sure that his personal views about her has not changed...
I AGREE 100%
EVERYONE IS ENTITLE TO THEIR OPINION ABOUT BEYONCE.
IT SEEMS IF SOMEONE DISAGREE WITH HER ALL HELL BREAK LOOSE.
AND MTO NEEDS TO DO FACT CHECKS BEFORE WRITING STORIES JUST TO GET A BEYONCE HEADLINE OUT.
***I CAN NOT BELIEVE HER OVER RATED AZZ HAD THE NERVES TO SAY IN AN INTERVIEW SHE WANTS TO SING "AT LAST" AT BARAK OBAMA INAUGURATION.***
SHE IS ALL ABOUT PUBLICITY...
@RomeoBlack--I agree. Mariah Carey is my favorite singer of all time. She's not a good performer, but she's a great singer. Beyonce is a great performer, but not the greatest singer. I like Beyonce and she is a triple threat, but I can see how Simon thought she was overrated a few years back. I guess he ate his words by inviting her on the X Factor. Mariah was on there last month.
Bey can sing...however she dances too vulgar...she tries too hard, and it shows...now Jennifer Hudson...she got her grown woman on for real...Jennifers voice is beautiful...see when you coming correct you don't have to do all that other "stanky leg dancing bullshyt"...just gimmicks...just sing Bey girl...be elegant...Diana Ross...elegant...Gladys Knight...elegant...Mary J. Blige...elegant and poised on stage, not vulgar...Bey, I'm still boycotting you though...stop dancing so dayum vulgar.
(Well the same can be said about Beyonce as well, dont cha think? Why else would you accept the invitation to perform on a show for someone who had such negative assessments of you and your talents?)
You're right. I can't disagree with that philosophy. Beyonce could take a stand and say no thank you, not that show, but apparently (at least according to MTO), she has not. Good point.
you beyonce bitches aint getting paid to take a bullet for her or to kiss her ass. so how about you jump a cliff. aint no one hatin on beyonce. plent of chicks blow her out the water with looks and singing. call me a hater and i know you a physco.
I fully understand the concept of not making a decision while angry or based on emotions but there should EVENTUALLY come a time in a successful person's career that they don't have to put up with garbage. This Simon character really seems to get away with running his mouth a lot and someone needs to check him. His show isn't the Oscars or Presidential Inauguration,it's some little bootleg U.K. show. Beyonce is not some new wanna be on the rise,she's basically the queen of the game right now;no thanks to him. He needs her more for ratings then she needs him. When will Matthew flex his muscles with white folks,seeing how he couldn't even get up the courage to make his daughter call Jennifer Hudson in her time of grief. This just smells like typical Negro insecurity and masa approval seeking.
BEYONCE BEYONCE BEYONCE..... LETS KEEP IT REAL, YOU CANT BE MAD AT THE GIRL FOR MAKING MONEY, NOR CAN YOU BE MADE AT HER PARENTS FOR KEEPING HELPING HER MAKE THE MONEY.... BUT TO BE HONEST SHE IS OVERRATED IN MANY WAYS, BUT SHE IS GREAT TO LOOK AT, WHICH IS A TRUE ENTERTAINER TO ME... SHE IS A ENTERTAINER!!!.. LIKE A STRIPPER OR A DANCING MONKEY!!... NOW WHEN YOU SAY ORIGINAL OR THE BEST, THEN YOU HAVE TO BE SPECIFIC...ORIGINAL COPY CAT, THE BEST IN ROBBING THE MUSIC INDUSTRY OF OVERRATED TALENT... I LIKE BEE AND I ANIT MAD AT HER, I JUST HATE THAT SHE DONT KEEP IT REAL.. I GET TIRED OF THE BALL ROOM GOWNS AND BARBIE DOLL WEAVES, LIKE SHE SOME BACK IN THE DAY DEBUTANT...PEOPLE WOULD RESPECT HER MORE IF SHE STICK TO ONE WAY THING... JUST BE YOU ( A HOE) LIKE MADONNA..............BEE THE HOE THAT YOU ARE, STRIP IT DOWN TO THE FLOOR, STOP MAKING EXCUSES LIKE YOU HAVE A TWO SIDES.. BEYONCE SLASH SASHA FEIRCE...IN HER RECENT MOVIE, SHE CURSED SO MUCH IT SOUND LIKE SECOND NATURE.I'M NOT MAD AT HER BUT I DIDNT LIKE HOW SHE MADE AN EXCUSE THAT SHE DIDNT CURSE( NOW STOP LYING BEE) ..I'M NOT ON JHUDSON NUT SACKS, BUT JHUDSON DIDNT HAVE TO CURSE TO GET HER POINT ACROSS IN DREAMGIRLS.. I DIDNT FEEL LIKE BEYONCE BRUNG OUT ETTA JAMES BUT HER ACTING WAS MUCH BETTER IN HER NEW ROLE........BUT IF BEYONCES PART KNOCKED OUT THE CURSING IN HER SCENES,HER PART WOULD BE OVER LOOKED..FOR ME. BEYONCE NEED TO STICK TO THINGS THAT FIT HER, BOOTY POPPING HOE MUSIC AND MAYBE PHYSCO CRAZY, KILLING A DUDE TYPE MOVIE!!!....SHE KNOW HOW THE MOVIE INDUSTRY WORK.. RAPPERS PAY THUGS AND HOES PLAY HOES....IF SHE GOT A MOVIE TO FIT HER PERSONALITY, CRAZY, DERANGED ,I WILL KICK A CHICK AZZ TYPE MOVIE, SHE WOULD DO GOOD AND i WILL BE FIRST IN LINE TO WATCH.... BUT PLAYING A LEGENDARY BLACK PERSON SHE NEED TO GIVE THAT TO JHUDSON......SLAVE MOVIES SHE NEED TO GIVE THAT TO CECILY TISON, EMOTIONAL CRYING SCENES GIVE THAT TO HALLE BERRY, EDUCATED ROLES, GIVE THAT TO GABERELLE UNION, BUT A MOVIE WITH A DUDE KICKING HER AZZ, WITH A WHOLE BUNCH OF WANNA BE THUGS SUCH AS THE GAME, OR DMX AND SHE PLAYED THERE GIRL.. SHE WOULD DO GOOD. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE HER DO A REAL LIVE BEEBE KIDS AND SHE PLAY THE MOMMA ROLE.. HER VOICE WOULD FIT PERFECT....BEYONCE IS ON THE HIGH HORSE OF HERSELF AND THERE IS NOTHING IS WRONG WITH THAT, BUT FIT IN WERE YOU FIT IN.... JUST BE YOU, PEOPLE WOULD LOVE HER MORE... NOW IF HER ALBUM SAID...........I AM ........THE REAL HOE OR THE REAL BIATCH........PEOPLE WOULD RESPECT THAT.. SHE STARTS OFF GOOD,BUT IT END IT CORNY AND FLACKY, WHICH MAKE HER PHONEY AND CORNEY SOMETIMES..SHE HAVE TO STOP TRYING TO PLAY INNOCENT BUT WANNA BE A DIVA...SHE DOES TRY HARD AND i ANIT MADE AT HER BUT SHE TRY TO HARD AND ITS NOT NECESSARY......WE WANT HER TO BE THE BIATCH SHE IS.....TRUTH BE TOLD, SHE IS STILL A BLACK WOMAN
Wow, I had no idea Simon said those things. Anyways, she has a "nice" voice, but I agree there are TONS of people out in this world who have much stronger voices than she does. I'm guessing Simon notices that with American idol and listening to the thousands of auditioners, some of whom should have been given record deals YEARS ago. lol. Anyways, it was harsh of him to say she isn't sexy. She has a great body. And she's a very pretty girl. (even though she ain't nothing compared to us brown skin beauties) LOL!
beyonce has always been a great singer even going back to destiny's child. thats the fact everything else is subject to different opinions. lets b foreal ppl dont front. you cant let the hate blind u. is she sexy, a great dancer, good actress hey thats all up to you but the betch sing her ass off.
Beside what I've been saying for years, I agree with Simon. Bey is not sexy and can't sing. She cleverly distracts you boobs with booty shaking and the dancing. She doesn't sing, she does what I call "Vocal Pontifications". Take her off Protools and the Guide track and you'll hear for yourself. Or if you see Bey in the street or doing an interview in public, ask her to sing something. A real sing would BLAM! - start singing. But like Britney,Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus, etc., etc., Bey is not going to because she can't. But understand, that even though she is not sexy and can't sing, like Britney Spears - she's good for business, Simon knows that, I know that, TV ratings know that, The Nets know that, Advertisers know that and that's all that matter. Not hating, just telling you the truth. As the years progress for your fans of Ms. Stan, you'll see and hear for yourself. Then when you realize that your wallets and ears have been violated then you will be the one to start hating.
Probably cause his shows are starting to become wack. I don't even watch American Idol. He is an annoying prick. All we do is watch him berate others with the same tired lines. It got old after awhile, so he needs some tired wack asz celebrity to boost numbers.
I know this is off subject... But, her not calling Jennifer Hudson to offer her sympathy was not cool at ALL to me. I dunno what happened, but that was very disheartning. Like the girl has no concern with nothing outside of albums and jay z.
Come on now. Who with a straight face could say Bey is ugly. Probably some hating ass non-Black female said that to you.Tell the truth boo. Honey, next time one of your little non-Black female friends says that mess to you, just look at them like their crazy and laugh loud up in their face.Make it one of those,get up close in their face, let them smell your breath laughs too.
Simon is good for all his off the wall comments that's how he gained fame on American idol but he really is a much different person behind the scenes, a lot of celebrities have said that Simon talked bad or had many negative comments about them but than became a close friend of theirs, besides name one singer from the UK that's prettier or can sing as well as beyonce.
You're right. I can't disagree with that philosophy. Beyonce could take a stand and say no thank you, not that show, but apparently (at least according to MTO), she has not. Good point.
Girl, everything they do is about money,lol. Most of the time, morality goes right out the window when $$$ becomes the topic. But given her overall popularity and good financial standing, If I was her, I dont know that I could appease the issue and adhere to his request after hearing his backhanded judgements of me. But that's just me..obviously Beyonce sees differently.
She is overrated, and I've heard better voice wise, but B aiight. Simon always tells it like it is, but there have been times when he was grossly wrong, like makin' fun of overweight singers, and such and a few other misjudgments. If I was B, I'd make the muthafucca sweat before I committ to anything, IF I do it.
Simon wants to be Beyonce, that fruit pop, just like a snake to dog someone out one minute and then use them for their benefit. Beyonce is beautiful and has a nice body and can sing I just think that her personality is a little manufactured. Yall won't be hating on the sistas on my watch!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Beyonce ain't past it! And 4 damn sure Papa Knowles ain't. They're just competing with Britney Spears and trying to sell more copies of 'I Am... Sasha Fierce' than 'Circus.'
It's all in the marketing!
Beyawnce can scream, screech, and yell, but sing... hell no!
However, she is beautiful, sexy and sister will perform her ass off!!!
Beyawnce is what one can call a performer!!!!
Now, it is time for her to go away!!!!!!!!!!
Her songs sucksssssssss!!!!
Thank YOU!!! I love Simon. He is a blunt person. Dude sits on millions all day everyday. No need to hate. And let's be real...the only reason she is probably invited because she has the hottest single right now. More money for Simon... and he still probably think she can't sing.
lol some people hate Beyonce so much until they are delusional. Its really not that serious. I urge some of these people to please get a life and some self-esteem and stop tryna clown this woman every chance they get. Maybe if you had something better to do, you wouldn't care what Beyonce's doing. If you don't like her, then you're free to feel that way but do you really have to post 10 and 20 times saying how much you don't like her? It's ain't neseccary. Matter of fact, it makes you just as obsessed as the stans. And to be real that woman is not ugly at all, there isn't anything wrong with her body. She's in better shape than most. And although she's not the best singer in the world, she has more talent than alot of singers out today. And as for Simon, he's Leona Lewis's manager so of course he's gonna talk smack about Beyonce. She's competition. But at the end of the day, he know everything he said is a lie.
I agree, her singing is average at best. She is sexy though and that's what saves her career. But in my opinion she's in that Alicia Keys category, can't sing, but sex sells her. Neither Beyonce or Alicia are anywhere in my top 10 actual female singers list, but the numbers won't show that because they're sexy.
I Agree with Simon but the only reason she was invited on the finale of his hit show X Factor in the U.K. (which is the American Idol version for the US) is b/c a contestant sang her song "Listen" which is also on Youtube and beyonce VOLUNTEERED Again saying "she was so impressed that she would love to do a duet with her at the X Factor finale"
Simon uses shocking statements just to get attention for himself and his show. Bey's voice is OK. Bey is an entertainer and no one comes close to her in the game today. Bey is fine, but that other girl (Latoya Luckett) has a better face. Actually, the best singer of all time is Aretha Franklin. Even in her old age when she sings at these award shows with others, she blows them away.
9 TIMES OUT OF 10, SIMON WILL ALWAYS HAVE SOMETHING NEGATIVE TO SAY ABOUT EVERYONE. THATS JUST HOW HE IS. AS FOR BEY, I THINK SHE CAN SING. SHE HAS A GREAT BODY, AND SHE FALLS NEAR THE TOP 10. HELL GO FOR IT. TAKE THE SHOW WITH A BIG BANG AND GET YOUR MONEY, THATS ALL THAT MATTERS MOST.
honestly speaking shes not a great singer ...she's a screamer. The songs she makes are party songs, she can't be too mellow even down to her present album she starts normal then BAM!!!!!! As for her looks... face is ok looking WITHOUT makeup ... her shape is nice..... but she doesn't have much ass as most people say she does.
oh please......opinions are just like azzholes, everyone has one, and you gotta wipe and wash that m.f to keep it clean and smelling fresh. with all that said.....LONG LIVE BEY!! no one, and i do mean no one in the game right now is holding a candle to beyonce. her acting chops aint that great, but damn, neither were halle berry's at first. simon cowell also said that j-hud couldn't sing and i mean that girl can truley blow!!!! sounds like to me simon is trying to stay relevant.
simon needs to stop weraing that same tight azz black shirt and do something about his man boobs.that's why his girl left she got tired of rubbing tits with his tired old azz. how he go hate on Bey? she's cute, fine and maybe not the best singer but she's doing her and making that paper that'sall that matters.
BTW he said Jennifer Hudsn couldn't sing and look at her now. he had to eat his words
She is a hard working women kind of over hyped though. Everybody is entitled to their own opinion so who really cares what simon says. Maybe she is not sexy to him so what?? Maybe her singing is not that great to him ok. She already has a record contract does not need American Idol so who really cares. Simon is funny though.
Simon made these comments around the same time that pic above was published. These were those fat/thick beyonce days when she shouldn't have been wearing a lot of what she did. That's why he said she wasn't sexy. I remember him calling her overweight also. At the MTV Awards that year, she was. Look at the weave, of course he talked about her.
Ok i had to comment on this one'
If B cant do anything else SHE CAN SING!
She is one of the best and if u have ever heard her sing live (something many ppl cant do) u would know that!
Actually she sounds better live if u ask me so if she cant sing than idk who can she may not be sexy to him but her voice is undeniable
Why would we listen to a white person on black BEAUTY? He thinks Paris Hilton got a nice body. That stick figure trick. Why would y'all pay that cornball and attention? He isn't black. White ppl think Beyonce size is fat. Who gives a fuck about SIMON?
She's okay, not especially my taste in music though. Her voice gets annoying after a couple of songs. And she can be very pretty with makeup -- without it, just average. I would like to hear a nice soul album from her, rather than straight pop all the time. Then I could respect her more when she offers herself up to sing at inaugural balls and such.
I don't think he was hating on Bey, he feels she's overated. Like many other people feel. She is not (in my opinion) the greatest singer to ever walk the face of the Earth nor the cutest. Can she sing? Yes. Can she dance? Yes Is she the greatesr? No. Everyone is entitiled to their opinion. Plus it doesn't matter what we think or what Simon thinks, old girl is still going to make her money.
Simon is the biggest idiot I know, but he's doing all this for millions and millions of dollars. He said he dont think Beyonce is sexy or that she can sing, I really dont think her latest album is all that great, but on the other hand why do Simon want her on his show, to insult her? and tell her how she cant sing and she is not sexy? seems like Simon have a hatred against black women. I really think he have some big issue with black women that have self esteem and dont need no white plantation English master to insult her and deminish her positive attitude.
when you look at the bigger picture, he insulted Jennifer Hutson and a few more black women, the hatred and resentment was ozzing out of his eyes, Simon loves to insult black people, he insulted a young kid so bad one time, the kid cried himself off the stage, and Simon is getting millions and millions for insulting people. Simon really have a personality problem and one of these days its going to come back to haunt him, I think he is gay.
almost all of the singers nowadays are like that overrated, their songs are on every radio station and you hear them until you are sick, with beyonce and many others they cant really sing all that great or dont put out beautiful music, but they have some beauty, something like rhianna, she is not a great singer but publicist set up photo ops for them and they becomes popular, they also show off their bodies way too much, something like rhianna and beyonce, sometimes they dress in bathing suits and shake off their behinds just to attract their audience, because sex sells.
I DON'T KNOW WHY EVERYBODY THINKS BEYONCE IS ALL THAT SHES NOT AND SHE REALLY CAN NOT SING TO ME BACK GROUND MUSIC MAKES ANYBODY SOUND GOOD, AND AS FOR SEXY CHILD PLEASE I GOT MORE ASS THAN SHE DO, THEIR ARE PLENTY SISTAS THAT SING, OR ACT IS WAY MORE SEXY THAN HER.
Im so done with Beyonce it's time she get her old married ass off the stage and let somne good singers come in. Jazmine Sullivan, Chrisette Michelle, and others deserve some spotlight but can't get it because you got Beyonce's played out, half naked, ass shakin for a buck takin it all up. I know some girls that sing and are shitin on her.
