Beyoncé Surprises Holiday Shoppers at Walmart

Beyoncé

Attention Walmart shoppers: Beyoncé is in the building. Queen Bey made a surprise appearance at a Walmart store in Tewksbury, Mass., on Friday evening, to help spread some holiday cheer. She perused the aisles for copies of her new CD, which arrived on shelves just in time for Christmas, and gave 750 customers a $50 gift card, totaling $37,500.

“Hello Walmart shoppers. It’s Beyoncé!” she said over the loudspeaker. “I stopped by the store today because my record just arrived. I wanted to give everyone a little gift. For everyone in the store right now, the first $50 of your holiday gifts are on me. Merry, merry Christmas from Beyoncé!”

She hugged babies and even bought some toys for her daughter Blue Ivy as shoppers snapped photos on their cell phones.

Following its U.S. first-week sales of 617,000, BEYONCÉ is expected to sell 260-280,000 copies in its second week and remain No. 1 on the charts. While retailers like Walmart and Best Buy are stocking the album, Target decided not to carry it after its exclusive iTunes release.

Watch Bey’s big surprise below.

    @H, There is nothing sweet about a liar. Giving people your CD is not sales. They offered me a free one on my twitter account and I promptly denied it.

    It is not fair to great artist with less cash to have to compete with a fool who buys her own work just to stroke her ego.

    @dana, where in the clip is she giving people her cd? she bought ONE copy and she says its surreal seeing the actual album (in a hard copy form). who knows, she may have signed it and gave it away, she may have kept it for hefself. either way, you’re missing the point … beyonce walks into a walmart store and spends $37500.00 on others! only a hater would take something so nice and make it mean. #getanewhobbyinthenewyear

    @karamelkisses, Nice? Self serving moves are selfish and an effort to create a fan where there was none. Walmart customers are not rich. If this selfish dummy had given a true gift she would have invited them to pick out whatever they needed on her dime. Poor Walmart customers cannot eat a beyonce CD and there children do not need to be corrupted by a drunken fool bragging about having sex with a street thug and who still does business like a street thug in his old age.

    @dana, you need help my dear, because nothing you are saying is true or makes sense. Nobody is being forced to buy her album and frankly she did a great thing for the customers there. Also, if Beyoncé wants to sing about fucking her lawfully wedded husband that is her God-Given right. I suggest you stop the unfair judgement and concentrate on your life, based of your malicious words, I’m sure you have plenty to explain at the Pearly Gates already.

    @kate, Beyoncé never been fake, never been a sell-out, always been the most down to earth type of woman, who knows her place in society, and knows what she means to people as an icon.

    That is straight hater talk. I am actually surprised Beyoncé haters exist.

    That’s cute. $37,500 is mad; the only thing that ruined this for me was the fact she was reading the tannoy speech off a piece of paper? Made it look a little bit like the money was from Walmart & not Bey.

    @JD,

    She probably just wanted to prepared so she wouldn’t fumble over her words. Kind of how people use a point of reference when presenting.

    that gay azz walmart worker tried to cut off Beyonce before she could finish talking, but the queen wasnt having it and she completed her sentence talking over him. She did not want to hear him speak or give her attention to him, so she stared at the cd longer until he finished talking, and she kept it moving, then he turns around like dam i thought i would of got more time with her and she was already holding a baby! CROWN!

    This woman can’t ever do something nice without some hater trying to talk shit or discredit her . It’s not her fault she’s humble & down to earth . She’s truly blessed & I’m sure the people there really appreciated her doing that !

    I would’ve fainted if I was that close to her . She did an amazing job at her Mrs Carter Show in July in Dallas , Tx :D

    I LOVE HER SO MUCH ! She inspires me everyday .

    @carol, how is she trying to intimidate target? they are the stupid ones because she’s projected to sell another 275000 in week #2 now that the hard copy is available. they would have still made a profit but their little egos were hurt because she opted to team w/ iTunes this time around. she did partner w/ target twice before for IASF and 4. she doesn’t seem like the petty type but I can forsee her teaming w/ walmart on a future endeavor.

    @karamelkisses, Any publishing company will count your own purchases of your own products as sales. Any of them from books, to music, to whatever.

    If she really sold that many copies unannounced she would not be buying promotion advertising on CNN, the internet, etc, and she would not be trying to brainwash the public by making false claims that , everyone else is buying it. The public is not that dumb. Both those videos are lousy and can be seen for free on the internet and tv. No one has a reason to buy the lousy videos. They are not good.

    I love bey, lol. Its crazy I bought the album on iTunes and a store called FYE…and I was questioning all the ppl in the store, I got two white ladies to buy it for their grand daughters lol.

    The guy at the register said he was going to buy it for his girl, and he said it was their biggest release this year….they never go through so many boxes in one day.

    How pathetic is that? Ciara is sexier than her with baggy pants, and a tshirt, than she is naked on the beach. Future exudes sex appeal all over, and that JayZ puny muscles make every woman want to puke at the thought of those bubba lips touching them. Yuck. She should have done that video with a good looking actor. His ike turner rap was not sexy at all. Why would anyone associate good sex with having to get drunk as motivation, and ike turner woman beating self??? This is the worse mess ever.

    Why in the world was he talking about rapist and woman vicious beater ike turner in the same sentence as good sex? Crazy?
