Beyoncé Lends Talent to Curb Childhood Obesity

Beyoncé

Beyoncé wants to get you in shape. The “Bootylicious” singer has joined forces with First Lady Michelle Obama and the National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation to help fight childhood obesity.

The 16-time Grammy Award winner has re-written and re-recorded one of her hit songs for the “Let’s Move! Flash Workout” campaign. She will also provide an instructional video demonstrating the dance/exercise routine, which will be distributed to participating schools.

“I am excited to be part of this effort that addresses a public health crisis,” stated Beyoncé. “First Lady Michelle Obama deserves credit for tackling this issue directly, and I applaud the NAB Education Foundation for trying to make a positive difference in the lives of our schoolchildren.”

Middle school students across the country will participate in a pre-choreographed “Let’s Move!” dance exercise routine at an identical time on May 3 at 1:42 p.m. EST.

    Pshh…the childhood obesity crisis is a MYTH perpetuated by these anorexic superstars. These young women need to learn to be proud of their curves! I know Bey used to be…it’s fine that you don’t wanna be “Bootylicious” no more, but why discourage that in other folk?

    I WANT THEY OLD BEY BACK-click reply if you do too!

    @Beacon, beyonce is hardly an anorexic superstar… shes one of the very few international superstars who actually is curvacious and PROUD of it , shes always saying in interviews women should be proud of their bodies no matter what shape or size and that everybody is beautiful as long as you have confidence….. so whatever

    @Beacon, This is exactly what fat and unhealthy people say to defend being fat and unhealthy. Keep eating your cheeseburgers and bacon.

    beyonce is a hoodrat she got all that money and her hair never done right! I think beyonce is bipolar she creates personalitys and run with it. She was trying to be shakira, josephine baker, tina turner , rihanna and mya she never had her own style she even stoled breakfast club and won a grammy she didnt deserve i dont think bee should have 16 grammys she deserves about 4 for being able to copy other singers. She never write her songs she a co writer and if she write alone it is wack . I think beyonce is so overrated and there is better talent out there

    All the damn haters, find something else to do’ If you hate Beyonce so much, then why are you wasting one minute (or more) of your lifetime writing a comment here. You call her a slut. You are the biggest sluts for having mentioned that she is over-rated. Whet about Lady GaGa laying an egg in her video, Rihanna eating a banana as if it were something else……… Please do not come here to write bad things about Beyonce. Instead, spend your time writing good things about your own favorite artist(s).
