    She so overrated & lame, you literally can’t tell the difference between her look, choreography or sound for all her performances the last decade

    The only difference this year is she politicized it with her black power, Malcome X symbolism.

    Beyonce’s a racist, disgusting A-hole .. Imagine a white celebrity using a platform like the half time show to do a pro-white race message.

    So sick of blacks celebrities hijacking national culture pastimes for their black power agenda and the media letting them.

    And she seriously needs to buy a pair pants and get new moves.

    I liked her words here. Hope she keeps breeding positivity and truth.

    Beyonce is so over. Not only is she a fat cow but, she has completely lost her voice. She certainly should have emptied her diapers before going on stage. Lame ,old news. You are done Ho.

    ” Wanted people to feel proud”

    So I got 30 ONLY black back-up dancers dressed up like Black Panthers, got out by “Black lives Matter” symbolism .
    Put on my Superbowl blond wig, stuffed by fat ass in a too tight leotard, making sure to highlight my out of shape body and did the same tired ass dance moves I’ve always done and barely sang to stupid song that makes no sense .

    Who does this cow think she fooling with this bullshiz

    Loved it, love her! Keep shining.

    Pro-white race, you mean anti others. B/c there are many pro-white organisations, most of them are on terror watch. How are you offended by anything she said?
    It amounted to ‘I love being black, everything about it’.
    Stop pretending, there was nothing offensive about this.

    Poor thing, had to perform with Destiny’s Child and then with Maroon 5, I mean Cold Play, never alone.

    You bugging she KILLED that performance!

  • smmy33

    You’re either too stupid to notice your hypocrisy and you’re too much of a racist too.

    To you ..pro-white would mean anti others
    But pro-black means only loving their skin colour.
    I guess the whole judging one by the content of their character and not their skin colour is so 1960′s

    So only black people can have solidarity based on ones skin tone and unity through their skin colour, cause they just love their pigmentation

    But other racial groups must be about “diversity” and never unity of people by race and never tribal like blacks …ok

    The absurd double standards blacks think they’re entitled to is getting more racist and divisive everyday.

    By kill you mean almost fell on her fat ass.

  • xyz

    She has become a bad joke, too bad she cant realize it. Or cant do anything about it.

  • xyz

    True

  • xyz

    What drug are u on?

  • xyz

    Are u always that dumb?

  • xyz

    LEFTIST DISPLAY OF SHIT AT ITS BEST.

  • xyz

    She needs to retire with dignity if possible, just like J Ho, Mad donna, Kylie Epilogue and others….

  • xyz

    The harsh truth is America is half Judaized and half negrified. Good luck with it becoming white again! And dont forget to get distracted by crap like Superbowl while ur country goes to hell.

  • xyz

    Imagine the outrage if a white or Asian or a Native American person would have done that. But she is black (more or less) and she is allowed to do that, know what I mean? Welcome to the politically correct dumpster shit fire called America. And say thanks to ur white genes, FAKEyonce! One day the truth about u will come out, dont worry. And u move quite well for a 41 year old!

  • person

    I find her SO dull and boring completely uninspired. Her first solo album is great and everything other than that is nonsense.

  • Curt Noydb

    What I thought was hilarious is this ignorant racist One Percenter giving a dual Malcolm X and BLM salute. Sorry Princess but Malcolm was assassinated by Black Men from the Nation of Islam. Guess they don’t teach history in Black Ethnic Studies.

  • xica

    You can’t make people feel proud and have love for themselves just by adoring yourself. That’s what your song is about

  • Conte435

    the chorus of the song is:

    If he fuc*ks good I bring him to Red Lobster

    The rest is more nonsense thrown with some race baiting.

    ah real inspiring, shm

  • xica

    it’s stupid song. She used to have sweet ones

  • Legendary Trolly

    Almost? Beyonce is one of the greatest in history, stats dont lie! And when you talk about professionalism, their is no falling on stage! I guess the best you can do, is Almost fall?? Lol

  • Jenny from the flop

    Slayed? All her performances are the same. She’s overrated and has become a gimmick

  • Bibi

    She always tries too hard. not hot anymore

  • VICTORIA

    Beyoncé has fallen many of times on the stage and one time she fell down several steps which was embarrassing. If you want to get a real good laugh, just google Beyoncé falls on stage and the videos will come up.

  • VICTORIA

    Beyoncé is over and she knows it. She’s old, fat and the fake blonde wigs look tired. Beyoncé feels the ghost of Aaliyah coming back in the form of FKA Twigs and Tinashe. When those two blow up she will be done. Those two artist can out dance her any day of the week and they have slender bodies and can move in a way Beyoncé can only dream she could do. Beyoncé days are numbered and I love all the fake media reports saying she slayed and she’s the Queen. Hmm sounds like the news media was brought courteous of Jay Z and Beyoncé because 99% of the public ripped her and her performance to shreds.

  • Legendary Trolly

    And didnt miss a beat did she? Stop making up stories! This chick looked like a female version of Mike Jackson and u up here tombout she ALMOST fell! U sounding like a hater! Im more impressed by the entire performance, AND when she ALMOST fell, but got up in a flash! A very special entertainer

  • Jon M’Shulla

    She looked like she stopped to lay a big turd in her leather diapers….then just sharted instead.

  • George Gagner

    Urban black culture is a cancer upon America.

  • Legendary Trolly

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!! She looked like a legendary Superstar to me! It was phenomenal! When she came on to the field and the camera zoomed in and she tilted her head, and smirked! That was the dopest thing ever, and it was so simple! You sounding like a major hater bro Lol

  • Keith T

    Jay. You are wrong. Not liking it is irrelevant, you are still wrong. What Beyoncé did was tantamount to a hate crime. Not seeing it for what it actually is, indicates serious moral and societal deficiencies. How dare you defend a heinous act like this and then claim those slighted by it need to sit down and take it…more or less. The reason people are fed up with these types of acts is because people like you EAT IT UP as fact. Let’s hope that in the end, you are smarter than your ignorant and wildly misinformed words indicate.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    I guess I am. I used to like her. Not after the last two years though. Yes…I am a major hater,now.

  • Legendary Trolly

    “Used to like her” Haters always say that type of stuff to throw you off! However I am not thrown off Lol
