Beyonce: Super Bowl Note for African-American Women

Beyonce and her Destiny’s Child band mates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams jump for joy after their 2013 Super Bowl performance on Sunday (February 3) in New Orleans, La.

After the amazing performance, the 31-year-old songstress wrote a note celebrating African American women, highlighting the ladies that performed that evening.

“What a proud day for AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN!!!!” Bey wrote in a note posted to Instagram. “Kelly, Michelle, Alicia, JHud. You are all beautiful, talented, and showed so much class! It was an honor to perform at the Superbowl with you phenomenal ladies. Love, Beyonce

“Beautiful note from @beyonce!! Big Love 2 @KELLYROWLAND & @realmichelleW 1 of my Favorite parts of the show!!! Still on 10!! #SB47 ;-)” Alicia tweeted about the note.

SHE WAS AMAZING! THE ENTIRE PERFORMANCE WAS JUST AMAZING! LOOOOOOOVED HER OUTFIT. A million times better than Madonna’s performance. BEYONCE ROCKED THE DOME!!

Geez, just go away already, if you think for one minute that the circus you did at the Superbowl will make history, you are so wrong…it was kind of embarassing actually not to sing just run around like a maniac and scream…just go, take a break, no one will miss you and your atemmpt at being an artist…

She is annoying.

Beyonce brought the house down! Could have done without Jennifer Hudson. The children’s choir from New York should have sang alone. If her skirt was any tighter it would have ripped off. Alicia sang the national athem the way it should be sung. Yes, she did emblish it a bit at the end, but she did a great job.

Horrible! I just wonder what kind of back lash a WHITE :Artist: would expect if she thanked all the WHITE performers???? Way to keep racism alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

# 7

of course..HAD to throw RACE in there. STFU already with your lame performance.

# 8

Beyonce can be annoying but she has the talent and the drive to back it up. She’s not one of those who talk about how great they are but have no real talent…side eye to Keyshia Cole.

If you actually think HER performance was better then Madonnas way to prove you know NOTHING about true artistry, creativity and real performance.

Why did she have to bring race into it? She could have said, “we are proud women” but no she had to bring in race.

that’s super racist. if a white person said that it would racist and I’m not even white.

DOUBLE STANDARDS.

For someone who is always defending African American you are one racist person Beyonce. Enough of this! Nobody should be considered more or less talented because of RACE!!

i agree with the other guys here. f*ck that race seperation. all or nuts. why n*ggas begging for it to stay alive? feel better then? special?

anyway. this is just once to feed sugar to her urban audience to stay on the hype train until her new music is out to sell.

I hope someday someone answers my questions…. why click on the post & read it if you hate her!!

Anyway considering the fact that everyone who performed at the super bowl this time around was a black woman… this note is very appropriate & lovely… never has such a large event had only black female performers before… so last night was BIG for black women!! if you take offense to that.. then you are a fool!!

U white folks r too damn sensitive… go ahead an wipe the tears from your eyes as u thumbs me down!! No love lost!!

@hello20042: You obviously do not know what racism is then… so i’ll help you..

Racism means – “Prejudice or discrimination directed against someone of a different race.”

What part of that note was she discriminating ANYONE?? #Stopit

@Mikaela: Where did she say anyone is more or less talented??? Or discriminated against anyone?? Ohhh my god…. go back to school Please!!

Stupidity is overflowing on this post right now!!!!

so vacuous, uneducated… REAL talent, beauty has no race, ethnic boundaries… this piece of crap cares about nothing, nobody but her obtuse, grandiose self… stop quacking senseless as if you were a greatest role model for your African American… represent your “race… you are NOT… B.I.T.C.H!!!

@CutTheBS: Okay. I’ll say what a proud day for white women next time we’re the only ones performing.

@wtf:

Well that’s kind of rude. Everyone has their opinion and for you to think someone else doesn’t just shows how ignorant YOU really are. True artistry, creativity and real performance? Let’s not forget how Madonna started, OK? Her sell point was ‘SEX’. She banked on that to make her career, and still does. Don’t insult other people because you don’t agree with them. Again, you’re an idiot!

@Melissa B: Good… do that. You should! :-)
Love yourself!!

oh for god’s sake people. She gave a great performance and it WAS a great night for EVERYONE! Get over yourselves. Whether black/white/red/pink/gree/yellow/beige/lavender, who gives a s***!!??

@CutTheBS:

AMEN!!!!!!!!!

beyonce looks like hooker and i guess that is talent.

You all are crazy!! She did wonderful and the note is not racist you retards! What she said was correct, black woman are always marginalized by the media and society as a whole! We are made to feel devalued by American society, she wrote that for fellow black women and no one else! I never hear any of you say anything about white women being put on pedestal and made out to be gods gift to men! Everyday we’re bombarded with how white is so much better by the mass media! That is the reason the note was written to black women and not you! You don’t like it, then don’t listen to Bey are other black artist!! They will be fine without all you jealous, hating ******! BEYONCE IS QUEEN!

@Rocky: Cry me a river. Madonna does not shake her a*s and gyrate with crotch all over her performances and videos and make everything about herself. There is a huge difference but your blind a*s can’t see. Madonna is SEXUAL with a MESSAGE. To prove women should own who they are and not be afraid to be sexual in such a sexist double standard society. YOU FAIL my dear. You clearly proved my point – you know nothing. Beyonce is all sex no message, no substance, no creativity. You see one Beyonce performance…..you’ve seen them all.
