    So-called Queen of the industry’s album still struggling to sell a million. Lol! This generation’s Michael Jackson? She has yet to make an album that can be compared to Thriller.

    @BobbyB: To the left, to the left … you leave the room because the exit is to the left. Great job B, as always flawless performances. Haters are just making me laugh talking about her album flopped, it is still in the top 10 on the charts which means its still selling. I think all real artists at some point make a reflective album, when they take a break from the music they are known for & make an album that they love & is personal for them … MJ, Madonna, Mary J Blige, Jay Z, etc. If you don’t like her or her music, STAY OFF HER POSTS!

    Wonder why she didn’t perform “Start Over”??!! I feel like she would SLAY that song live. Her vocals sound so good on that song. Other than that, everything else looked/sounded amazing. I hope she announces a world tour soon because I NEED to see her live.

    @MR. FRANKIE, correction !!! Beyonce has a crazy vocal range which majority of pop stars doesn’t possess. Not even mention bringing vocals live. How many pop stars can bring their studio vocals live.

    Beyonce is Baddest, and you know its the honest truth!!! Reply:

    @KERI HILSON IS BADDDDDDDD AND SHES A THREAT TO UR FAV, woooow Keri hilsons last album was by far one of the worst I’ve ever heard!! Keri can write music for others, but when it comes to writing for her self, SHE SUCKS and you know it!! Beyonce may not write all her material, but she shows growth with everything she does. so maybe keri need to take notes from the real Queen Bey!!

    @say what,

    I’m blessed to read that someone has the peace gene in them. Thank you, say what for thinking with your head and not your a$$. I think some people NEED to bash to make themselves feel good.

    I don’t know why, because B doesn’t do it. Just makes me wonder, are you showing love or just releasing anger (and if so, what are you really mad at? It’s not like B-haters are messin’ with her numbers???) #we’ll never know
