Beyonce Reigns Supreme

Beyonce Reigns Supreme

These pictures are a little old but never posted here.. and it’s a slow news day. Plus someone did a great job of cleaning up all the text and making the scans looks nice. Beyonce is InStyle‘s covergirl for their Jan. 2007 issue. She chats about her coveted role in a glamorous musical, hang time in London with her new pal Gwyneth, and one of the coolest boyfriends in the world. Here are a few choice quotes from the interview:

On clothes not fitting: “I have hips, you know? There are things I’d love to wear, but I’ll try them on and it’s like, Uh-oh … too much information!”

On struggling with her image: “I have days when I hate my hips and days when I feel good about myself. My shape is my shape. You just have to know what looks good on your body. I sure had to learn.”

On being able to retire: “I’m in a great place. I was just telling my mom, ‘Momma, do you know that I can decide to do anything with my life?’ I could even retire. To have that option at such a young age is beautiful. It’s important for a woman to know what she wants out of life. And if she wants to travel the world, she should do that.”

In music news, Beyonce‘s “Irreplaceable” continues to rock the charts as the dominant song of December. It’s in its fourth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

    If that’s true, there is no justice and life is more unfair than I thought. a Beyonce ‘song’ written by her or NOT, shouldn’t ever be in the offing to win anything.

    Won 9 GRAMMYS and COUNTLESS other awards

    Which means Kelly Rowland and the other one, have at least half that many. Also, scary – but puts this comment into perspective.

    A star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame

    I think this is where having a boyfriend worth $400 mil comes in. VERY handy to say the least.

    clothing line

    House of Derierre? Oh yes. Couture city, that.

    her boyfriend is worth almost $400,000,000

    So. Marla Maples boyfriend of once upon a time is worth 5X that. Who’s Marla Maples, and why do we care? Exactly.

    35 million albums sold

    David Hasselhoff has sold 10 million. Perspective people, perspective.

    B-DAY went platinum in less than 2weeks.

    So did Josh Grobin. Perspective again people, perspective.

    ect ect ect ………

    Stat wise she COMPLETELY crushes her competition!

    Yes, she COMPLETELY crushes Jessica Simpson.

    (yawn)

    Er, Gwyneth Paltrow? …she of the ‘I think Americans are STOOPID’ commentary…well…if we’re talking her and Beyonce, she’s incredibly on the money, with that one.

  • Amy

    B looks hot in the shoot.
    I love Beyonce, and I still don’t understand why so many people hate her, but hey, it’s everyone’s own opinion. About the weave, yeah, I hate it too because it looks fake, but although I’m not black, I know that black people hair is very difficult to take care of. I think Beyonce tried doing a lot of stuff to her hair in the early DC days, but it only damaged it more, so that’s why she wears a weave now, whereas white people’s hair like Angelina Jolie’s, while it looks good and natural, is much easier to take care of. I’m lucky that I’m Asian and don’t have the problem.
    @$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$: I’m glad you didn’t say that B was the first black woman to win a Grammy for songwriting because that honor goes to Miss Kandi. I hate it when ignorant Beyonce Stans say that B was the first black woman to do so. However, I still refuse to say that HoD is a good clothing line because it’s not.

  • Susie

    I heard today that James Brown only has four grammies. My first thought was these days they give out Grammies to easily. Beyonce has 9 Grammies and James Brown has four?!!! There is something very wrong with this picture. I have had enough of this girl and I hope she goes away for a while. There is a thing called over exposure. As for her saying she would retire if she wanted to we all know Daddy and Mommie would never allow that. I am not sure what the hell she is getting at. Besides she loves the spot light a little too much herself. The clothing line you guys mentioned also produces some of the ugliest clothes I have ever seen. I would rather not have a clothing line that have one that produces such garbage. Enough said.

  • Vette

    Damn, never read so much hater comments in one sitting than just now…calm the hell down and take all the hateraid to the left, to the left! B can’t help it if she’s in the spotlight boo…and thank GOD she knows, she can’t please everybody all the time…and trust me she ain’t trying to. Get a life and if you don’t like her…guess what, the last time I checked this was a free country, do wha’cha please.

    For the record, I could care less about Miss Thang but damn ya’ll seem obsessed with trying to make like she running around kicking rocks and sh*t!

  • Susie

    You said it free country we can say anything we like…. LOL.

  • gossippup

    I wish she would retire.

  • Susie

    I am black and I still do nto like this girl. Hate her music. I am more a Mary J Blige fan. Real R & B. Not because I am jealous. I can choose not to like a certain artist becaue frankly she does nothing for me.

  • http://deleted lory

    I would like Beyonce more if she had more class. She’s decent, but she appears to be stuck in the ghetto and I hate the way she talks. She’s dating an ugly rapper too.

    I saw Dreamgirls. She’s very attractive, but not that beautiful. She doesn’t have classic beauty, just nice features.

  • define ghetto

    what does “stuck in the ghetto mean”

  • Amy

    Problem is, Beyonce was never “in the ghetto”. If you know the story, she was raised in a middle class family and the way she talks is from the way she was brought up. She’s never seemed too smart to me, but she’s definitely not a ghetto bitch. IMO, she has more class than many others her age in the industry. I’ve never seen her party and I’ve only seen her get drunk once, but she kept her parts covered. Jay-Z may look like a camel, but apparently B’s not one to go for looks, so he either treats her real good or has a 12-inch dick. Any dibs?

  • http://deleted lory

    When I say “stuck in the ghetto” I mean what it sounds like. She’s cute and all but comes across as a ghetto girl. Most high-classed women would not be dating an ugly rapper. It’s how I perceive her. She doesn’t have a lot of class or like Amy said, doesn’t appear to be too smart.

  • no one

    Did Beyonce win all those Grammys as a solo artist or with also with Destinys Child and Jay-Z? She used and backstabbed her childhood friends to get where she is today. And why this turned into a race issue is beyond me. Are you sure she wrote every song or had co-writers? And do you want me to run down a list of white female song writers that have more crediibility and respect than Beyonce ever will? People don’t like Beyonce because she’s overrated and used other women to get to where she is today.

  • Are you serious?

    Lory, Beyonce lived in a “white neighborhood” growing up, where did you get ghetto from. AND IF IT MATTERS I’M AFRICAN AMERICAN.

    no one, Beyonce earned all nine of those grammys as a solo artist. Why does everyone always call her a backstabber when it was the MANAGEMENTS decision (MATTHEW KNOWLES) to get rid of those girls. I bet you didn’t even know that she was depressed because everyone blamed her for it. Put every bit of blame on Matthew; he’s a stage dad and she would do better without him.
    YOU ALSO SAID THAT SHE USED THOSE OTHER GIRLS TO GET WHERE SHE IS, WELL YOU SHOULD ALSO SAY THE SAME ABOUT LETOYA LUCKETT BECAUSE EVERY INTERVIEW SHE ENDS UP TALKING ABOUT THE GROUP. SHE IS ALWAYS INTRODUCED AS AN EX MEMBER OF DC TOO. IF SHE REALLY WANTED TO BE KNOW AS A SOLO ARTIST AND IF SHE HAD BAD BLOOD WITH BEYONCE OR ANY OTHER DC MEMBER SHE WOULD HAVE ASKED FOR INTERVIEWERS NOT TO MENTION THE GROUP.

  • http://deleted lory

    It doesn’t matter if you are black or not. In the black community, maybe she’s considered to be the IT GIRL, so I don’t understand. I’m just saying that she comes across as a ghetto girl. Not entrenched in the ghetto, but a bit of ghetto no less. If she grew up in a white neighborhood, I would never know it. She probably did not socialize much with them. I guess she can’t help it, but the way she talks is irritating. Ugh!

    Maybe I also can’t get past the boyfriend. Angela Bassett wouldn’t date that type of man. Neither would Halle Berry, I don’t think. Actress Vivica Fox married and divorced one, then dated that “other” rapper that I loathe, and her career has gone nowhere since. The fact that Beyonce is with that ugly rapper says a lot about her. I’m sorry, but that’s my opinion of her.

    I used to think Beyonce was really going to be special, but not anymore. She’s had a few good pop songs with good beats, but I don’t really like her singing either.

  • Zayla

    Beyonce looks beautiful in those photos. It’s funny, because the same hate that is being spurred at Beyonce, was also being spurred at Halle Berry when she was at the height of her career as an actress. Black women, White women, Latino women, just women in general seem to be jealous of another female’s success and beauty. I am not indicating that Beyonce has not wronged people in her past, but haven’t we all wronged someone in one way or another? Of course we have, but we dumped on Beyonce because she is very successful, beautiful and loved across the globe. Beyonce has never stated that she is the best singer/dancer/actress that ever lived, but she is surly great at what she does. She is must not be that “dumb” because most of the decisions she makes, turns out to work in her favor. It is so easy for people to say “Oh, I am tired of Beyonce, she should go away for awhile and allow someone else to have the spot light.” Should Coca Cola “go away” for awhile to allow another beverage company have the “spot light.” Should Donna Karen “disappear” so that other up and coming desingers can show off their craft? Then why ask Beyonce to do such a thing? Believe me, if up and coming artists are great at what they do, and if the mainstream media decides to take notice, they will succeed just like Beyonce did. And who’s to say if Beyonce did decide to “take a back seat” that she will be able to bounce back after such a break? Nobody is going to do more for Beyonce (other than her parents) than Beyonce is willing and ready to do for herself. It’s all just a bunch of foolishness if you ask me. It’s plain and simple, people are jealous of Beyonce.
