DAMN. What the HELL are J and Beyonce doing with all that money?!

beautiful! :-)

What some people pay good money for.

Sad to have all that money and do so little for others. You rarely if ever hear of her or Jay-Z doing anything charitable or giving of their TIME to help the less fortunate. Nope, you only see them on yachts and her with a gazillion dollar ring or that fugly Dereon stuff she wears that is overly priced. And don’t give me they do it quietly crap. Almost all celebs are at heart narcistic and they all want/need/must have the exposure, it’s a boost to their career and they well know it (or else their PR people do). Nope, they are just selfish.

BEYONCEiSTHEBEST!!!! @ 11/25/2008 at 12:20 pm

BEYONCE IS THE BEST AL THE HATERS GO F*CK YOURSELF!!!!

@Marcia -Its their money !! they should do whatever they wanna do with it!! they worked for it …besides if you have alot of money doesnt mean you should hand it out to everyone! personally i would but everyone else is not like me !!

For all those who think she does not do charity work. Read below.

Knowles has been exposed to issues of social awareness since a young child, as her father would sometimes take her into the community, including African-American society. Knowles and Rowland, along with the former’s family, founded the Survivor Foundation, a charitable entity set up to provide transitional housing for 2005 Hurricane Katrina victims and storm evacuees in the Houston, Texas area. The Survivor Foundation extended the philanthropic mission of the Knowles-Rowland Center for Youth, a multi-purpose community outreach facility in downtown Houston.

In 2005, music producer David Foster, his daughter Amy Foster-Gillies, and Knowles wrote “Stand Up for Love,” which would serve as the anthem of World Children’s Day, an event which takes place annually around the world on November 20 to raise awareness and funds for children’s causes worldwide. Destiny’s Child lent their voices and support as global ambassadors for the 2005 World Children’s Day program.

Knowles conducted food drives during stops on The Beyoncé Experience tour in Houston on July 14, Atlanta on July 20, Washington, D.C. on August 9, Toronto on August 15, Chicago on August 18, and Los Angeles on September 2, 2006.

On October 4, 2008, Knowles attended the Miami Children’s Hospital Diamond Ball & Private Concert at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, where she was inducted into the International Pediatric Hall of Fame. Ethan Bortnick, the 7 year old musical sensation dedicated and performed “Over the Rainbow” to Knowles.

Beyonce Knowles and Bono were among global stars who performed at Nelson Mandela’s South Africa gig to boost the fight against Aids.

Beyonce did attend the private funeral to support Jennifer. Beyonce is not just going to advertise something like this. Obviously that’s why people haven’t heard anything about it until now.

Reps for Beyoncé, who starred with Hudson in “Dreamgirls,” and fellow “Idol” vet Fantasia told MTV News that they have chosen not to comment publicly on the tragedy in order to Respect Hudson’s privacy.

I love Beyonce. She looks amazing.

She looks really classy.
I can’t even hate on this girl anymore. She’s proven her title!

To Marcia….you act like you know what they do with every dime of their money…number one it is theirs…and they do not have to do anything with it they do not wish too….number two…you do not know what they do with it or what charities they give too….not all people have an article published about them every single time they do something good….and number three…..don’t be jealous because someone earns more than you (I am not saying you are…just in general)….because if you had that much money you would not have a problem with it!!! lol

oh to marcia…i went back and read your comment…and it DOES seem like you a jealous old hag….do not hate on celebrities and say they are all needy/wanting/narcistic….because to me it seems like you are the one who is gettting all upset over someone else being a success…..and if YOU were a celebrity someone would be saying the same stuff like you….so if you’re going to hate….go on but in the end you’re just jealous thats all…and don’t bother commenting back cuz I ain’t coming back on!!! Good Day!!! :)
