  • New york

    What some people pay good money for.

  • Marcia

    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!!!!

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

  • love

    @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.

  • StAr

    I love Beyonce. She looks amazing.

  • fan

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

  • mike

    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

  • mike

    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!!! :)

  • lalalove

    I’ve seens this before but I still can’t get over $162 MIL???!!! O______O
    How dare people compare her to that Rihanna chick. SHE’S GETTING PAID! BIG TIME!

  • lalalove

    Her records may be utter garbage these days. But, the girl is filthy rich!
    GET ‘EM, GIRL!

  • lalalove

    Maybe “UTTER GARBAGE” is a bit too harsh. But, they are not what these use to be.

  • fan

    Beyonce always looks stunning. I really like her new song Halo.

    Marcia Marcia go easy with green before you have a heart attack. Your GREEN eye is showing you up and it is bad for your health. Can’t win with you haters. If you give publicly you are pimping your children, you give on the quiet you are mean and selfish. If you are rich you should not enjoy the fruit of your hard work, you should hide away and live in squalor to apease the less fortunate. Envy, jealousy is really an ugly thing.

  • ****STAR****

    If Beyonce’s songs were garbage. They wouldn’t be number 1.
    Last time I checked both her songs “If I were a boy” and “Single Ladies” were # 1 on several of the billboard charts. That’s 2 songs at # 1 simultaneously.
    Go Beyonce!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    All those haters talk crap like “she is annoying” but they have nothing to back it up. Make sure there is credit behind what you say. Otherwise you just look like an idiot!

  • #1 fAN

    Beyonce carries herself like a lady should!!!

    Beyonce got great reviews for this movie!!!

    Beyonce Executive Produced this movie!!!

    Beyonce is beautiful – inside and out!

    I Am… Sasha Fierce!!! I can’t stop listening to it!!!

  • jennifer

    Last Friday on Elvis Duran and the morning show Elvis asked her if she has reached out to Jennifer since the tragedy and she said “NO, but I’m praying for her”,and a friend of Jennifer’s who was at the funeral said Beyonce was not there,had not sent flowers, a card, a email or even called her. So like I said she’s a bitch

  • WAIT A MINUTE!

    Hey Jennifer!!
    Did you call her or send her flowers? I guess your a ***** too!
    You must really like Beyonce if you come on here and read everyone’s comments and comment back. Kind of ridiculous maybe.
    I guess everyone who said hello to her is expected to send their support.
    What happens with beyonce and Jennifer is between them. first of all Beyonce is private and so is Jennifer. Get your S@3! straight. She did show support for her and like I would, she wouldn’t admit this on a talk show as then that support becomes publicity rather than real support.
    As for me this is my first and last blog on this topic.
    So seriously get a life. And stop hating on people $80 Million dollars richer than you are.

  • jennifer

    fuck you WAIT A MINUTE TOO

  • DIVA

    Take note Haters and Talentless Tricks —

    This is what a woman that’s beautiful and humble and stays on her grind looks like.

  • Hotness!!!!

    HA HA HA … “Wait a Minute!” # 34.
    You really served it to that “Jennifer” # 35.
    She even commented back and she can’t say anything!
    Oh my…she is such a loser!!!! HA HA HA HA

  • jennifer

    hey Hotness aka Hotmess fuck you too you cunt bitch muthfucka

  • jennifer

    Now you just got served bitch

  • talent

    People are looking for soemthing to say about Beyonce. Since when are her and J.Hud best friends that she should “call” her. Should Anika, Jamie and Eddie have called her too? She probably sent flowers but didn’t feel the need to announce it. J.Hud’s probably mad as hell (she cursed the haters out before about the Beyonce gossip) because she and Beyonce are cool and whether or not they spoke is irrelevant – HER MOTHER IS GONE SCHMUCKS!!!

    DID I MENTION HOW FABULOUS BEYONCE LOOKS IN THESE PICS?

    SHE’S GETTING GREAT REVIEWS – CAN’T WAIT FOR SATURDAY!!!
