The day before, Beyonce kept it fierce while having some fun at Dave & Busters to celebrate her new album in the Big Apple.

    i have to say, THIS move i amazing, Walmart. After amazon and target had their ego’s hurt…what a great ideal!!!!!!!

  • Dee

    This is quite awesome! <3 Bey

  • Mrs. Gaston

    No fan of Wal-Mart, but Queen B’s ultimate and very obvious F*U to Target. LOL!

  • Sam

    I guess she never threw out her long, dried out blond wigs when she “cut” her hair while claiming she did it for women empowerment blah , blah… She really starting to show her age, her face looks so old, weird, if you told me Beyonce was 40 I would think it was true.

  • sdf

    @Sam: in the meantime, while you are complaining about her looks, she’s giving away gift cards and you are doing absolutely, NOTHING.

  • Asif

    @sdf, PLEASE that’s YOUR money from all those albums you bought over the years that she’s giving back AND THIS is to promote the new album being at walmart, for you TO again put back in HER pockets, CHILE PLEASE, please, please, just PLEASE!

  • OMG

    why do ppl cut their hair then put wigs/extensions ?

  • annie


    because it was never hair that was cut to begin with? lol

  • Ed

    Walmart?? How about supporting local businesses instead of promoting cheap China-made corporate crap and making more profits for the Walmart family who are the wealthiest family in the world at $125 BILLION and who deny millions health care and a living wage. Disgusting.

  • Maddy

    @Ed: It was just a nice thing to do. I’m sure everyone who got one appreciated the gesture. It’s the holidays and we should get into the holiday spirit!

  • Vanessa

    @Asif: my exact thoughts!

  • Vanessa

    I feel like every time she does something it’s to promote herself. It may be giving back but then when you think about it, all these people are going to go buy her album which is why she did such a “nice” gesture.

  • Allie

    So sick of this clown and her PR stunts. Her fans are as dumb and annoying as her.

    This is why I’ve been laughing at people calling Beyonce a “feminist”. Good grief this woman doesn’t have a thought that isn’t geared towards publicity. She has a great team though because she’s able to sell turd to the masses.

  • Tiana

    I laugh at these comments at times, b/c the majority of these comments comes from Caucasian women who know nothing about African American women, and who will never know. So I giggle about it, b/c it’s freaking hilarious it, really is some of ya’ll are a joke.

  • k blue too

    $50 only? Ahem. Why is she shopping at Walmart. Doesn’t she know about their overseas practices?

  • HA!

    This stunt is done in hopes they will turn around and purchase her album. Now when she goes to a shelter and give out $50 gift cards then I can say it was a true giving gesture.

  • Mare

    You hit the nail on the head! @Asif

    If someone of Beyoncé’s caliber and celebrity is “shopping” at Wal-Mart its because it is financially beneficial to them. She is there for one reason and one reason only, to promote her new album. Oh and lets not forget its a slap in the face to Target. Beyoncé was NOT there for her fans. I know that its the thought that counts, but for some reason I was extremely disappointed to hear that she gave away gift cards valued at only $50.00. You know damn well that its a tax write off for her at the end of the year. Its called charity. She could have easily given away gift cards valued at $250-$5,000. Her fans are the reason she is rich. I don’t know about you, but I have easily more than a measly $50.00 on Destiny’s Child and Beyoncé’s related items over the years. IMO, it was a slap in the face to her fans.

  • FaithHillFANatic


    If I were worth $500 MILLION dollars, I would spare more than a measly $50.00 gift cards. I am NOT going to praise her for what she did. I am sure after she left Wal-Mart she was checked from head to toe to make sure that no white trash or ghetto-ness rubbed off on her. lol! I bet as she was handing out those $50.00 gift cards she told her fans to go an by her new album, Beyoncé with it. My point exactly. The money goes right back into her pocket some way, somehow. Beyoncé doesn’t do anything that isn’t beneficial to her in the end. She is a business woman first and foremost.

    Umm, 50 dollar gift card? How about 200 dollar gift card…Jay z spent 50,000 on booze at a dinner not too long ago…….50 seems pretty cheap

  • kelli

    @Vanessa: true, but in the end people still benefit, so it’s ok :-) other *stars* do it as well, most people do.. not many people are 100% selfless

  • leens

    who cares… at least she did it and the people who received that fifty dollars are happy. Happy Holidays ;)

  • Oh Yeah!!!

    Gorg Bey!
