Beyoncé Added to Haiti Telethon

Beyoncé

Jay-Z has already pledged his allegiance to George Clooney and Wyclef Jean’s benefit for Haiti, and now his wife has also signed on.

The singer, who recently announced that she would be taking a break this year, will participate in “Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief,” reports MTV News. She will appear in London with Jay-Z, U2′s Bono and The Edge, and Rihanna, but it is unconfirmed if she will perform.

Other celebrities lending their star power to help raise relief for the earthquake-ravaged country include Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Shakira, and Stevie Wonder.

The two-hour “Hope for Haiti Now” telecast will air commercial-free on Friday at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

    @Rap-Up, You were right it didn’t say that up until now. If you check MTV today they have updated and it now says “Beyonce will perform”.

    They didn’t HAVE to add her lol. They were going to make money regardless. The line up was impressive with or without her.. It’s about giving and Haiti, not about who is or isn’t there

    I’m glad to see her added to the lineup. We’ll probably hear about even more names within the next few days. This is exciting. To the people hating on Bey, can you go one post without saying something nasty about her? She signs on to do something for Haiti, and ya’ll STILL have to go in on her? Seek help.

  11. Beys a bish!

    She’s only there because Jay-Z is on. Just like last year as Jay-Z did the Obama Rally. Without Jay, we wouldnt see Beyonce at any of those events. Fail bish! next.

    Bey stans are such losers. Changing facts..etc. If beyonce wouldnt be married to Jay-z, we wouldnt see her at any events at all!

    @Rap_up Stop supporting her all the time!

    @Beys a bish!, You’re clueless and spouting off about things you know nothing about. Beyonce has done charities long before she met Jay-Z. She’s very involved with her church and helping the less fortunate. But obviously you wouldn’t know that because you are too busy being jealous and creating drama. Rumors are a nasty thing I hope you get help.

    @kay, and yet here you are adding to her page and giving her attention by adding another hateful post. I’ll never understand ppl like you that say stuff like “oh so tired of her” and yet you take the time out of your day and have the nerve to come on her page and talk mess. And another thing…this isn’t even about beyonce…she’s just helping out for charity because of the haiti disaster but your lame pathetic ass wants to bring hate and negativity.LIFE IS SHORT…. GROW UP!!!
