Beyonce Knowles & Jay-Z Kick Off American Tour

Beyonce Knowles & Jay-Z Kick Off American Tour

Beyonce is joined by Jay-Z on stage at Madison Square Garden, NYC, on (June 21) the first stop of the “I am Sasha Fierce” American tour.

The 27-year-old singer performed “Crazy in Love,” which featured Jay-Z.

Beyonce is being threatened with a million-dollar lawsuit for canceling a Manhattan club show. She was supposed to perform on Saturday at the M2 as part of her tour launch. “They said they were too busy with the launching of the tour and that they wouldn’t have time to do the kickoff party,” the club owner told Page Six.

    That outfit is so ugly! Why would she make you focus on the part of her body that’s the most unflattering?
    Jay-Z must be one of the ugliest black men out there; his teeth make him look like Mr. Ed!!
    Fix those chompers, Jay-Z!!!

    Message to the #1 Post

    Bey dresses this way because she can; because she is comfortable and CONFIDENT with her body and not trying to starve her body to a size one. Unlike you White girls who buy into all the media crap and think you should be a size one. Yeah, maybe thats fine for a nine year but not woman or girls over the age of 12. Get real. Look in the mirror and love yourself and love what you see. AND EAT A MEAL EVERY NOW AND THEN!

    Amazing talent, and she knows it, but doesn’t ‘rub you the wrong way’. I feel her marriage to Jay-z is for status purposes, but she does love him. These two want to make the most money possible hence why she likes to endorse dreadful commercial products…. soft drinks, gum, fast food. Would I do the same if I was in her shoes. Hell no, I’m not that greedy. Like I said, she’s talented and that compensates for her poor taste in product endorsements … and perhaps men.

    The first elevent comments are null and void, because none of you were at the show. Beyonce should never sit down or worry about the looks of her husband, that’s your job. While hers is to put on A+ performances which she did last night at MSG.

    The crowd was at capacity, her voice was through the roof, and her presence was undeniable. Beyonce is the best artist out gracing the stage along with her husband. Her vocals were on point, and it truly was an amazing experience being in Madison Square Garden to witness it. For someone who said her costumes, are all the same, has just witnessed a Beyonce show from the outside looking in, you definitely WERE NOT in Madison Square Garden last night. Stop the hate and recognize this woman is amazingly talented, and did a wonderful job at the Garden last night ( to stay on TOPIC!)

    Obviously the first ten posters were nowhere near Madison square garden on Sunday night. Beyonce lit the place on fire with her amazing and soaring vocals which tore the roof down.. Everyone was pleased. So for those of you saying mediocre, or that she never changes her costumes you’re speaking from hate. Because you would know that the show, as A+, and noone left unsatisfied. The energy in the Madison Square Garden was over the top. Great vocals by Beyonce, and dancing skills. As long as she is on top, why would she sit down? And why wouldn’t Beyonce and Jay want to make money in this economy? Stop the foolishness. There’s no need for her to sit especially since her husband is standing by her side on and off stage every step of the way? You wouldn’t sit down at your job now would you? She’ll break when she wants. Anyway, Beyonce looked GREAT, sounded even greater, and rules the stage. Go queen bey!

    How did I become the poster child for skinny white women?
    You know nothing about me or my race, so back off!
    You don’t really want to talk weight and blacks, do you?
    Beyonce is bottom heavy—-that how she looks. That may appeal to you, but I don’t think it looks good.
    Just my opinion:-)

    royal beauty Says:

    @humid: OK, seriously…thunder thighs? DAMN….You certainly don’t appreciate the beauty of many African American body types…I am not a fan of Bey, but I know beauty when I see it, and she is…would you rather her have thighs like that troll Tori Spelling shut the ***** up! If she has to cover her thighs, you should cover, or better yet behead yourself (as should Jay Z). No Bey is not shaped like a flat ass, 11 year old boy the stereotypical Caucasian, blond haired, blue eyed beauty…and you know what that’s okay. Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors, so please don’t go there, because your feelings will most certainly be hurt!

    Moving on, we all know what what we’re going to get with Beyonce, so this really not a story, but ok, I suppose.

    .
    beyonce and jay-z have been together for almost 10 years and the media knows NOTHING about them. not one negative story was wrote about their relationship – like all other celeb couples (who didn’t last half the time they did). hurts, doesnt it?

    Pandora Says:

    @ Susan — what’s up w/ the “unlike all you white girls”? Is it fair to make a blanket statement? I’m one of the white girls and I think she’s gorgeous. She has a great body and I always love her outfits (whether on stage or out and about). She looks good whether she’s up or down a few pounds because I think her greatest accessory is her face. She’s just a very stunning woman w/ perfect skin and great features.

    But cut the “white girl” crap, okay? I don’t find all the white women (or men, for that matter) featured on this site to be anything to rave about. So doees that make me anti-white otranti-black if I happen to think (and I do) Halle Berry (for example) is not much to fuss over? It’s a matter of opinion dear, and shouldn’t have anything to do w/ color.

    christina Says:

    seriously?anyway-back to her tour review. i was at her show last night and it was absolutely amazing. she looked stunning, sang beautifully, and everyone was in AWE of her stage presence. she was funny, classy, sassy, and most of all: THANKFUL. you can’t ever deny that this woman loves her fans. it definitely shows and she has some of the most devoted fans out there because of it. you can hate on her, but you can’t deny that the girl can SING and knows how to BREAK IT DOWN. she makes people happy and you can see her passion in her performance. i had nosebleed seats last night but it sure didn’t feel like it!! it was the best concert i have EVER been to.

    @F u g F a c e M a n ! s t o n: LOL I find your comment quite funny in return, as I am sure I would get a response like this. I know it is her costume, and I am not an idiot (to put it with a lot more class and a lot more respect than what you called me) I was refering to her shape in general. She has the weirdest body shape in general. . . i apologize for your ignornace in not understanding that to start with.

    I take it back I do not apologize for your IGNORANCE, because obviously that cannot be fixed. But I am glad you took time to point out my spelling mistake. Hopefully you are pleased that I took the time to proofread and make sure all my possible spelling errors are to your perfection. Thank you for taking time to respond. If you have nothing better to do with your time then swear and call me names, then it is time you step away from your computer and forum, and realize that everyone is entitled to an opinion about a POST . . .not other peoples comments and spelling errors. Hoping that I have caused amusement to your day . . .and most importantly life, and now you can move on like I have done, and most people do.

    Susan Says:

    Hey, Me Number One and 28 posts, reread your first post. I do believe you brought race up first? Why does he have to be an ugly BLACK man? Also, I don’t believe I made you the poster child for skinny white woman; that’s a slight over reaction don’t you think? You probably just need to eat something and calm the hell down. HEY, I’M JUST SAYING……………………….

    @MissG:

    very well put. i have been to many shows in my lifetime, including kanye west’s glow in the dark tour, and this was by FAR the best. beyonce really knows how to entertain and is absolutely beautiful. i have never seen someone look as stunning as her. even when she was sweating she looked glowing. she is incredibly talented, that’s why she makes so much money. all the haters cannot expect her to stop doing her thing just because her light shines so much brighter than the rest of the world’s. and jay-z, an awesome guy. people should not be shallow enough to make fun of him for stupid reasons such as his appearance. what really matters is his personality and his talent, which are both overwhelming. if anyone here had just a fraction of the amount of talent they have you would be very lucky.

    Honestly, the majority of the comments have spelling errors therefore that totally invalidates your opinions. Beyonce is beautiful and her thighs are one of her many beautiful attributes. She is an excellent performer and there is nothing mediocre about her. If you have been to any of her concerts you would definitely understand. Otherwise keep the hate to yourselves. People talk all this **** and yet they both are pulling in millions annually.
