Beyonce: Billboard's Woman of the Year

Beyonce: Billboard's Woman of the Year

Beyonce takes the cover of Billboard and named the mag’s “Woman of the Year.”

What does the future hold for Beyonce?

“I can’t predict,” Papa Mathew Knowles says. “But I hope she will be enjoying the fruits of her labor with a continuing mix of music, film, corporate projects; helping others as she does now; and moving into other endeavors like maybe painting. Most people don’t know this, but she’s a really good painter. Family is also important to her. I see her having a long-lasting career but hopefully not working as hard as she is now.”

    Why wouldn’t Daddy say nice things? It’s all true, as we can see. Other than her painting, which we’ve yet to see, but I’d love to. She sure does work very hard. She’s amazing w/ all that she does. Impressive.

  • Janeth

    For some reason I don’t like her! I just can’t pin point it…. I mean she’s really pretty and her songs aren’t that bad. I don’t know! something about her makes me want to puke.

  • validate

    Her father, Matthew Knowles, just got slapped with a paternity suit by a woman in her late 30′s by the name of Alexandra Wright.

    He has been married to Beyonce’s mother since 1980.

    Another Joe Jackson

  • lakers fan in boston

    congrats on the award beyonce
    she really has had a great year

  • Feelme


    Ciara captured the honor last year. Beyawnsay’s music isn’t selling. her CD stalled in the low 2 million range.

    Funny daddy mack mathew couldn’t predict the future because the last time he predicted she would sell a million and didn’t come close LOL. Beyawnsay is a dud who is now trying to come across as a humanitarian, caring, sensitive being because she’s fading. Her music is juvenile, she is a gimmick in need of another act!

  • Age

    That’s not fair… Britney Spears should’ve got this honor. She wroked way harder than any female artist this year. She had the top grossing tour this year.

  • Brown eyes girl

    Beyonce is sooooooooo beautiful, she is a great role model for young girls and she has a beautiful heart. god will continue to bless her because she is has such a beautiful heart. she the raing queen of pop, no female pop star out there is as sucessful as her.

  • Flopney need to retire

    Who cares of Brieny spears, she is sooo over, she need to be taking care of her kids instead of stripping calling it performing. Beyonce had a bigger year than her flop comeback, Bee sold more records than her and she had bigger hits and movies. Spears is over, her fans are the onces going to watch her stripp , and act like a trashyy.

  • wendy

    For sure worthy of this title, what a year she had. And she is a talented, stunning young woman who also gives back. Wish her all the best.

  • Cristobal


    It is women like you… very sad. Anyway, I adore Beyonce, she is a perfect example of how far hard work will get you in this world yet she is totally modest and carries herself with grace.

  • Cristobal

    @Age: Oh she did? -shocked- And yet she still did not win? Hm, goes to show they were looking for more. Sorry Britney, try harder next time.

  • khristi

    I love that she comes from a positive family-my father did and said whatever he could to make us feel like crap. Never anything this positive. I envy her-not of talent and beauty’ but for having the support that she has and the beautiful spirit.

  • Whoever


    I believe the word you are looking for is called being a hater. If you recognize someone talent and can not pinpoint the reason why you don’t like them, that is the only other reason why.

    Beyonce is sitting on top of her piles of scratch talking about eating gold and buying flying ponies while simultaneously pissing off Janet Jackson. Knowles did an interview that bragged about her comfortable upbringing that involved nice cars and higher education.

    “I grew up upper class. Private school. My dad had a Jaguar. We’re African-American and we work together as a family, so people assume we’re like The Jackson’s. But I didn’t have parents using me to get out of a bad situation.”

    After reading about her comments, Janet Jackson was livid. She took B’s comments as a direct jab at her humble beginnings in a small Indiana community. An “insider” told the National Enquirer about Janet’s fury over the comments.

    “Yes, Janet and the Jackson family came from Gary, Indiana, and there was a time they barely squeaked by. But Janet has many loving memories and is incensed that Beyonce would make a crack like that. Janet wanted to know why Beyonce had to mention her family. They’re not friends and barely know each other. She feels Beyonce went out of her way to tell the world she’s from the upper class and the Jacksons were like a bunch of dirty gutter rats.

    Janet is proud of her family and how they came from nothing and became superstars. Not only is Janet telling everyone who will listen that Beyonce has a lot of growing up to do and that she needs to stop trying to impress everyone, she’s planning to confront Beyonce herself and read her the riot act.”

    Yes! This is what I am talking about. Nothing like a good Diva VS. Diva to bring in the New Year. My money is on Janet. I am betting she is scrappy. Although, Beyonce strikes me as the type to cut a b!tch for less.

    i cant believe when mj died ( r.i.p mj ) she said i wouldnt be here if it wasnt 4 him ! what a ………….

    @xoxo: You’re another shining example of how the media can trick people with low mental leadership capabilities turning them into mindless zombie hanging off of everything that is printed.

  • xoxo

  • Neela

    @xoxo Hum… So you can’t have you own opinion about something ? Humm smh

  • JT

  • dona

    overrrated, i hate her with passion

  • Cristobal

    @xoxo: -hahaha- Good for you.

  • why

    What is the big deal about Beyonce winning this worthless award. Ciara won this same award in 2008. That is not saying much at all. I am tired of people saying she is the most hardworking woman. If anything, she is the most in your face woman on the planet. She is going to wear out her welcome real soon.

  • ****

    Well, if 10 year old girls were doing the voting for this award Taylor Swift would have won again, luckily they didn’t.

  • Janeth

    @Whoever: Actually I don’t hate anyone… so to say that is plain dumb! I am just saying that something about her seems FAKE!!!!!
