real talk @ 02/23/2014 at 1:27 am

how could NAACP image awards even nominate beyonce for anything when she gets on stage almost naked showing her nipples and her ******. lips while bumping and grinding like a stripper. she has money however she is poor example for young impressionable girls. they should not glorify. that over paid stripper .

# 2

@real talk: because her voice is unparalleled and she broke records with an album that sold more in 3 days than others sold in a year. They could nominate her because she’s a feminist who tells ”young impressionable girls” that they’re flawless, not because of their looks but because of their personalities and their power. She’s making it a point to tell girls that you don’t need a man, but if they have one they don’t have to be ashamed to be open and real about their relationship. And she does it all with people like you, who only focus on the negative.

# 3

Pls I agree with real talk Bey is not a good example because she has stepped on other artist toes and copy just because she sold records after people bought it a few songs is ok and lots says they wasted their money! Yes it’s how much money you have and what Group you Belong to, pls she didn’t do but tour overseas and cut a cd because “4″ did not do well. It was Real R&B Divas that is True to their Music! Bey is a Hip/Hop Pop singer so next time NAACP get it RIGHT!!!

# 4

love lupita but shes on the skinny bony side.

# 5

I look at a lot of Beyonce’s performance videos and I must say that I have not seen her private parts yet. I wonder if the showing of her private parts are few and far between and is accidental?

# 6

@pika: Yeah I knew she was fit but this dress really shows how skinny she actually is. Her chest does not look right. Her arms look strong and sculpted but it’s not attractive to be so fat-less that the chest bone is visible.

# 7

At this point, no award shows are legitimate and this award included. All they are is a popularity contest and nothing that really contributes to the advancement of images. Oh well. . . .

@real talk: @realtalk: Makes you look side eyed @ any award that gives an award to the likes of doesn’t it? It’s most definitely fixed, and just lost all credibility with me for that move.

# 9

@real talk:

Totally totally agree. She does not make any contributions to society that move Blacks forward as a people. She sells sex and is indeed a poor example of a role model for blacks or young girls.


What the hell does an unparalled voice do for society?? It’s entertainment, not to be confused with activism or actually doing something that benefits society. They need to leave her to MTV, BET, and pornstars r us.



How can naacp give Beyoncé anything. This woman has not done anything deserving. She is a total embarrassment. The award missed it on this one. Most of us are appalled!!!

@real talk: t/comment-page -11/#comment-28537552″>real talk:

I think something should be said about the host Anthony Anderson’s terrible remarks as the host of the 2014 NAACP Awards . He referred to Kevin Hart at one point in the broadcast as being as black as the NAACP statue, and then go’s on to say I’m just saying. When he presented him the award for Entertainer of the year he said. It go’s to the short man. First of all let me state that I am black, and my complexion is dark as is Kevin Harts, Wesley Snipes, and Lupita Nyong’o just to name a few. Its always a black entertainer such as Mr. Anderson who may consider himself to look better because he is slightly lighter in complexion. There are a lot of dark complexion young boys and girls that may affected by inconsiderate comments made by the host of a show that is supposed to be highlight the accomplishments of BLACK people. I know I didn’t like them. It took away from the show’s quality. The show is about honoring BLACKS. Its always somebody black that is calling another black person black. Black is beautiful, White is beautiful, Yellow is beautiful. I believe all complexions are beautiful. There has always been this color line in the black community. Seldom will you see a black person that is of very light complexion calling a black person with a dark complexion black. Its always someone like Anthony Anderson (in the black community some people of his complexion consider themselves to be pecan tan) or Monique Angela Hicks of the “Monique Show” . I was watching her show a couple of years ago right before it was canceled. She had Wesley Snipes on She kept making these comment about his dark complexion as if it was a negative thing to be dark. Really! I mean Really! Blacks need to respond. Its not right!!

Hello, I was surprised that there was not more chatter around Anthony Anderson’s poor hosting. Did anyone notice that Kevin Hart did not look to pleased at the “it goes to the short man” comment. Watch closely as he gets up on stage and Anthony Anderson tries to say something to Kevin Hart. Mr. Hart was pissed!!!!! Hopefully next year, we will have a more gracious host!

Totally agree!

Really? Unparalleled voice? Right. She is just sign of the times we live in where showing your a%% and humping up and down have become the thing to do. Little girls dreaming to become the next Video Vixen is about the only empowering thing Beyonce is showing young girls these days. Our society is in such denial – UGH! I We rationalize the most outrageous nonsense.
