    That dress is colorful

  • solange_knowles

    All this sympathy for a child molester. Too bad people want to overlook how horrible he was (inside and out) because he was famous.

  • http://celebgirlz.blogspot.com Fred Smithson

    The legs… oh man… the legs… just incredible she is.

  • k

    Why DIDN’T she shave her legs?!?!

  • omg

    OMG BEYONCE IS ON BET RIGHT NOW SINGING AVE MARIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  • Eh

    Beyonce is so talented. God, she was just amazing performing at the Oscars.

  • Eve

    All that money she has and she cant even afford a razor or real stylist. UNREAL!

  • maria

    Oh please, singing Ave Maria half naked is ridiculous. It is one of the most Religious Catholic songs and she disrespects it.

  • fresh

    she’s seen better days.

  • Sandy

    Ave Maria is not the type of song to just sing anywhere, I guess she wouldn’t know cuz she’s not Catholic. It is sung at weddings and funerals and b#tch decides to sing it in a leotard.

  • lisa

    all that money and she wears this ugly dress

  • http://www.examiner.com/x-1566-DC-Glam-Examiner~y2009m6d28-The-unwanted-tattoo leslie arnelle

    LOVE THIS WOMAN TO PIECES but she needs a better Style Team!

    side note: Excellent performance but I’m dissappointed that she didn’t do a faster song…I’m hoping she will do another song
    (((HUGE SIGH)))!!!!!

  • anon

    Andrea Bochelli would not sing Ava Maria at Tom and Katie’s wedding in Italy because they were not Catholic. If you want to hear one of the best versions listen to it sung by the tenor Luciano Pavarotti – incredible and with all due respect a few notches above Beyonce.

  • just me

    Gorgeous, beautiful as always!

  • Afrika

    @Sandy:

    well, aren’t you the dumb b$%%# . Beyonce’s version of ave maria is not religious. She is singing about a romantic relationship and nothing spiritual with a supreme being. That’s why it’s a beyonce version…not the original. Now, get off you *bleeping* high horse and give us all a break.

  • http://meganwebgirl.com Jolie hot chin not

    gorgeous legs. terrible shoes. gorgeous girl.

  • plez

    She has the worst taste in clothes. But she was the best part of the BET awards so far.

  • t

    love the dress

  • Sandy

    No Afrikka, you are a the dumb one. Ave Maria is a prayer and not subject to change or interpretation.

  • http://meganwebgirl.com Jolie hot chin not

    Actually, I have traveled around the world, where in different cultures Ave Maria and other prayer songs do get changed depending on the culture and how it chooses to celebrate that day. Bad example: You could have a Mariachi band do Ave Maria. I’ve seen a Steel Drum band do prayer songs when I was on a Caribbean vacation.

  • solange_knowles

    Beyonce can sing whatever she wants. If your offended, that’s your problem.

  • http://www.blackwhiteconnect.com cookie

    she’s really amazing, and my friend recommended me a very good community—-BlackWhiteconnect.c0m —-People from all over the world gather together.Go to have a try, you may find your love or friendship there.

  • Sandy

    Actually, I have traveled all over the world and nobody has messed up Ave Maria in the way Beyonce has, that’s my opinion. She sings beautiful but she does no justice to this beautiful sacred song.

  • somja

    some people are just so jealous, beyonce looks amazing in that dress, she is a great person, learn to give people credit when credit is due, how old are you people?, 12? haven’t we learned anything from Michael’s passing?, appreciate people while they are here. pretty dress beyonce.

  • Nalia

    For the child molester remark on Michael jackson. Turns out the person lied. Look at the link.

  • omg

    It is a very unflattering dress, especially with the shoulder pads. It makes her look shoulders look VERY wide and makes her look like she has a stumpy neck.

  • Pining for Chris

    @somja

    Yes we have learnt something from MJ passing…..It’s just a reminder of how music had disengrated in originality.

  • jared

    Was watching TMZ today. They had a picture of Labron James, i think, he was practically laying on Beyonce with his entire hand in the crack of her b*utt. Yeah, she’s some lady.

  • Pining for Chris

    *has

  • Adri

    @solange_knowles: Why don’t you have a little respect? Nobody knows the truth. We don’t even know the truth about what kind of torture Michael went through as a child at the hands of his pig “father”. He obviously had some very awful things happen to him. And abuse is a vicious cycle.

  • Kayleigh

    man you lot don’t know nothing!

    SANDY: you said it is sung at funerals…er..tribute to MJ? der

    and as for everyone else..oh she shouldn’t wear this, oh she should have sung it differently blah blah blah….she is nt an opera singer and she did not do it for that sake of opera music! she did it because it goes with her version which in truth has no resemblence really to the opera version! She also does it on tour..hence the outfit! Geez don’t you know anything!

  • http://yahoo.com Lethicia

    Um the dress, the heels, and the hair has got 2 go pick a better stylist team B…..and uh the song choice was horrible on top of singing it in a leotard which is worse…….should have picked a faster song…..and should have not disrespected Catholics…lmao…other than that i still love you……oh yeah next time shave ur legs….lol jk its really not that big of a deal….

  • susan

    Bad bad bad dress.

  • http://yahoo.com Lethicia

    oh yeah and im not Bi or a Lesbian but i would seriously do Beyonce…….i feel bad 4 her ugly sister…she gets the bad genes and Beyonce gets the sexy genes lmao

  • um

    She looks amazing as always.
    People just hate on her because she has it together.
    Forbes # 4 most highly paid celebrity.

  • mimi

    She is not an Opera Singer plzzzzzzzzzzz some people do not know anything.

  • mimi

    #32 first off Michael was not Catholic so she was singing that song for herself. Ave Maria is a prayer..Hail Mary full of Grace the lord is with thee…….. Michael Jackson never believed in Saints, he was a Jehovah’s Witness so singing Ave Maria as a tribute to him doesn’t make any sense to me. It’s a beautiful prayer and song and she in my opinion really disrespects it by singing it with a veil and a leotard, hey it’s just my opinion, if others enjoyed it and made them feel good I have no problem with that., everyone has the right to feel the way they feel., i’m outta here.

  • Sandra

    Beyonce is always gorgeous.Love her dress.

  • didi

    why dont they shave their legs ever??

  • http://www.blogdelosfamosos.com Noticias de famosos

    Beyonce is amazing and he sings very well, but the dress is not favored
    much …

  • royal beauty

    Come on B….I understand you want to show those beautiful legs of yours, but a the dress really should be a little longer. She always says how classy of a woman she is, I want her put those words into action. The dress is beautiful, I love the colors.

  • sarah

    well all i have to say is that she disrespected that song,yes u can sing it,but not dressed up like that,that’s just dumb i was wondering if the pope had to watch that what would he think of u.

  • Eyda

    beautiful love the dress and her, queen B is the best:)

  • Pryncss279

    Afrika, then exactly why would we deem her performance actually a tribute to Michael Jackson if that’s the case. It’s simply a performance plugging her concert tour. No matter what anyone says it’s disrespectful to sing such a religious song dressed as a common whore!! Hey that’s my opinion & I’m sticking to it. Afrika clearly you DON’T quite get it…..hence your choice of colorful language to make your point, we wouldn’t expect you to. :-)

  • Me

    I cant believe Solange said what she said about Michael. Considering her sister said he was her hero lastnite. Welll sister has talent and the other doesnt so of course their opinions about REAL music is different. Dont hate on the KING dear. He still is some1s child,brother,uncle,cousin,friens & musical icon. How disrespectful of u.

  • BEY1

    @anon:

    Yeah right, but can he sing CRAZY IN LOVE like Beyonce…..something tells me ..NO.

  • lATACHAB

    BEYONCE IS A FAKE ASS BITCH! SHE WOULDNT BE SHIT IF AALIYAH HADNT HAVE DIED. GOD WILL BRING HER ASS DOWN BECAUSE HE DOESNT LIKE UGLY. SHE DO THE SAME SHIT IN EVERY VIDEO, HARDLY EVER COLLABORATE WITH OTHER PEOPLE. FAKE ASS BITCH. SHE CANT EVEN TALK RIGHT.

  • lATACHAB

    ALL BEYONCE DOES IN HER VIDEOS IS SHOW HER BODY. SHE SHOWS NO HUMILITY IN WHAT SHE DOES. SHE CATERS TO THE WHITE FOLK MORE THAN SHE DOES HER OWN. GOD HAS GIVEN HER A TALENT BUT SHE IS NOT DOING WHAT HE HAS CALLED HER TO DO. SHE WASNT DOWN WITH CHILDHOOD FRIENDS FROM DESTINYS CHILD. WHEN YOU PUT EVERYONE DOWN AROUND YOU, THOSE WILL BE THE PEOPLE YOU NEED THE MOST IN THE END WHEN ALL THE FAME IS GONE. BELIEVE ME , THE FAME DOES END.

  • damn

    She really is starting to look like her mother which is not a compliment! damn still a fat cow, what’s up with this fat legs, thighs?
