Beyonce, Kelly, Solange, Kanye & Estelle Do The MTV EMAs

YBF folks traveled across the pond to hit up the MTV European Music Awards today: Beyonce was there looking fabulous--scary but hot glove and all.  She performed "If I Were A Boy" live (video of her performance after the cut). Kelly was there kickin' it in the audience. No comment. Solange hit the red carpet too of course.  British flag decorated nails and all. And Kanye and Estelle performed. More pics and B's performance when you read the rest... Estelle hit the red carpet. And she and Kanye kicked it backstage before they performed: I surprisingly am kinda loving this dress.  Very futuristic chic. More pics of Solange on the red carpet: Chick loves those boxy cropped jackets. And Craig David was there:



Where's he been? Here's the video of B performing "If I Were A Boy" live: And here's 50 Cent's brand new video that I'm just throwing in: 50 Cent's video

Okay....got the hits on my

Okay....got the hits on my comment, and to each their own. I gave Beyonce her props as I see them, and thanks for pointing out to me the many classy performances she undoubtedly performed. Here's my deal......I clearly stated that I am sure she would know better than to gyrate at such a historic event even though in my opinion the live gryation in front of her dad while singing to her dad was a NO No. I just know that I get more of a feeling of soul and substance from the others than from the multi-talented Beyonce. Mary J. Blige is more fitting to me and I called out her past drug use only to show the contrast that the ass shaking persona versus the pull your self up from the boot straps and not be half dressed as a norm is a better LOOK so to speak. No, even if I had power to choose, as great as Beyonce sounds looks performs, it would be questionable for me to have her as my entertainment because of the IMAGE, though she can undoubtedly class it up, but nonetheless, the IMAGE of gyration and half nacked on stage isn't something that I would support as representative of the type of feel for my shindig.

She wasn't claiming it's hers. Everybody knows that's MJ swagger just like when Janet, Ciara, Usher, Chris B, Neyo, Justin pay respects to MJ with their moves.

I hope it's just a rumor about her performing. Why don't she sit down somewhere. I wish J Hud could deliver. Bey does a good performance, i can't take that from her but her voice isn't "all that." They need someone who can SING to do the inauguration ball.[/quote] Its a damn shame that her success in life annoys you. That is what a hater is if you didn't know. Why should someone stop being successful and fulfilling their dreams because you can't stand it. Get the hell out there and find your own success so you won't have time to hate on the next woman. Grow up and you sit down hatin ass[/quote] Well said. People need to stop with this mess. You don't like her or her products/music, fine. Doesn't mean others don't and it doesn't mean she needs to close down shop, take a break, fall back or other kinda foolish excuse people come up with. Instead of Beyonce taking a break from the limelight, why don't ya'll take a break from hating on her ish. This folks are out making a living like we do on the daily with our jobs. I am not a fan of so many artists out here but wasting time crying all kinds of nonsense about them ain't worth my time of day and it won't stop them from grinding and making their ends. People just don't get it. Soon they'll be telling Obama to take a break from the limelight and presidency..... Killing me....

I am sure Beyonce wouldn't hoe it up in front of the first African American President and First Lady and First Children, etc. I would be shocked if they would have the AUDACITY to invite this woman of talent and gyration to sing. Lap dances on stage, check, wearing classy dress and singing a live song in front of her dad and to her dad in a most questionable sexualized way, check (does anyone remember that, did that strike anyone as UTTERLY inappropriate?) Songs that sound good but of little substance, check. Beautiful, check, great dancer, check, internationally known, check Award winning, check. Something of such historic importance qualifies for a JHUD, and A. Keys. I could even see them inviting past drug user Mary J.

I love Mary I do....but someone like Beyonce who has been a great individual seemingly out of scandal, drug use, flashing the paparazzi, beating up the paparazzi, etc, isn't qualified because of dance moves for stage performances?? Unbelievable. You honestly believe that Beyonce, someone who has these credentials and was selected is a bad role model: --sung the Superbowl in 2004, in a crisp white suit, one of the best performances IMO of the National Anthem. --performed a record breaking three times at the Oscars in 2006, performed at the Oscars in 2008, of those times, wore a long black elegant gown, another gown, and a dress singing in front of a world reknowned all boys choir. Went from singing ballads to a song in French the same night. --Nominated and performed at Grammy's 2007 and 2004 in Elegant Gowns, and in 2004 won 5 Grammy's, ones which she held up with an elegant gown on. --performed at Fashion Rocks 2008 for the legend Etta James, in an elegant dress, also performed for charity, doing Stand Up --Selected to perform at Kennedy Center Honors by Tina Turner herself --Selected to perform again this year, at Kennedy Center Honors, for THE BARBARA STREISAND. --Has been a repeat guest on Oprah Winfrey show, Where in 2006 she sung Listen in a long flowing gown where Oprah was wowed and commended her voice. She will be on the show again November 12. --Won International Artist of the year (huge award), where she performed on stage that night in jeans and a leather jacket and accepted in a flowing gown. I can go on and on, but people don't like to look at the facts. They take bits and pieces of entertainment and try to mold that into the person. I can understand if you don't like the music, but why are you so worried if Barack chooses a talented woman whom HE ADMIRES, Michelle admires, the kids love? Who are you to hold someone back from something that would a dream for them? Because of your own distorted reality. Time and time again Beyonce does perform with elegance and class, but of course it will go missed and unnoticed, instead replaced with a distortion of what you want to see.

Naturalbrown <----- Neutral I say it's like abortions "If you're against them, don't have one but don't take the decision away from others" If you don't like Beyonce skip the post, but don't take the decision away from the fans. Is that too simple of a concept for people to get? The outright anger in the post is a bit much remember, STRESS KILLS!

[quote comment="275439"][quote comment="274612"]Rihanna did not invent the edgy look. However, you can tell that Rihanna has great style. She does not look forced and her fashion sense is consistent. Beyonce on the other hand looks incredibly forced. Also, I think she has the widest set of hips that I have seen on any celebrity. Yet she always has to pronounce them by sticking out her hip or putting one leg in front of the other. This girl is so desperate for fame. She once said that she can live without being in the spotlight while some celebs cannot. I dont know Beyonce, I dont know about that one. All the same, I am not impressed. I mean I waS NEVER some huge DC fan at all, but I thought that she had something different about her. She dissappointed me. Maybe Im way too educated and too much of an intellectual to really appreciate her music. I am also at the point where I do not respect her. When she opens her mouth it just takes away from her- she sounds like she has a limited vocab since everything is beautiful and amazing. She doesnt answer questions, she has not type of morals as she endorses anything it seems. She lies to her fans. Now this is what I do not get. She has these fans who defend her to the max and will not hesitate to cuss off any blogger who does not like Beyonce for any reason. Yet she lies to them consistently. she stated that she is likes to be natural and when she is not on the stage she doesnt like to wear heels, makeup or anything that is not natural. (well Im sure that I see her in the pool when she is on "vacation" with the wig on, red lipstick, eyeliner, and jewelry on and walking around in heels on cobble stone. she has been seen drunk/typsy on many occassions. She lies about writing her songs. Now if anyone of us did that In University we know what would happen so we all know the importance of citing. Weavonce clearly does not. She claims to love her former bandmates. Yet she does not show true love and support. I mean wearing the tshirt to the album release party does what exactly. I mean those who are there are usually people who are already supporting her and they do not need to be swayed. She is the queen of fixed repsonses. Every interview is in and around the same boring inarticulate fake interview. She gives lapdances on stage and it was not classy in anyway. Now she is screaming on tracks with no real soul behind it. See people are always saying that rihanna cannot perform like Beyonce and this is true. Beyonce has been performing her entire life while Rihanna got an opportunity and is focused on making some coin. For Rihanna to have Beyonce so intimidated is what really makes me laugh. So Rih Rih is doing big tings for females by chopping the locks. She is empowering them to let go of the physical and psychological damaging wigs and weaves and embrace the true beauty. While Beyonce cannot do that evidently. So she decided to tone down the makeup and give wig a break by rocking tracks of weave. Fake hair is fake hair beyonce. However, this is why she does not look the same. Now she looks like any pretty girl who goes and puts in some tracks. This is why everyone is saying that her look is off from what they are use to seeing. In my opinion, Beyonce needs to stop and just be herself. Beyonce makes mindless music for kids. Some adults may like it. However, it is clearly designed for a certain education level. We adults need more than if he liked it then he should have put a ring on it. Come on, this is getting lame. All of these songs have the same idea. True Icons switch it up. What is sad is that Beyonce grew up with me (same generation) and I was influenced by such great music and artists. Was she not affected by any of them ? Alicia seemed to be. Anyway I will sit back and watch this chick make a fool of herself. She should just take the money and run. Yet she wants to be the ICON that she and the rest of her camp know that she is not. Beyonce, please sit down.[/quote] Whoever you are you need you get your own blog, CUZ YOU ARE RIGHT ON THE MONEY HONEY!!! I RESPECT EVERYTHING YOU SAID!! and you said it honestly and very eloquently. I wish Natasha (ybf owner) can get better at her comments being that she IS in LAW SCHOOL and everything.[/quote] so..i may be a beyonce stan..but..there are some things that i agree with...her lyrics...ok..her style..medio..uh..her desperate to be an icon..question mark..?..her image...if u see icons like janet..madonna..always changing their image..keep fans guessing...even christina aguilera switch things up...all these sad but tru..and tho im a stan and i love this so much...im not blinded...i wish she'd sing about more serious things...we want more..and though i respect this chik for her success...she has a lot more growing to do...tru..Rihanna took the game by storm!!..im not gonna hate on her cause i love also..regardless if she cant sing..the pop market it doesnt really matter..thats why shes moving away from rnb...where she has to show her vocals..and is going more to disturbia type songs...cool..her style..chameleon..shes hot..yea..she dress bettr than bey..sry..but tru..she has more of a style..bey doesnt really care much...shes like watev..rihanna will keep me guessing with her style...bey needs to move me..LIKE UR DOING PROMOTIONAL AND ALL I SEEN U WEAR IS BLACK AND BLUE SHORT DRESSES...yea as a stan i get annoyed cause i expect so much..but watevr no one cant be 100% perfect right..so yea i love them both for different reasons..but i love bey more

Interesting dress choice and "dnace" moves... Idon't think "Sasha" is Feirce at all *bleech I think she seems to be scared to really feel the music and really doesn't relate to it... she hasn't experienced anything "real" yet in her life....think she is searching and trying to force it..... If she performed in jeans, a cool Obama tee or ROCAwear rocker tee and glammed DOWN it would of been more believable

To be honest..Like all of us I still think Beyonce is trying to find herself...She was in the game at a young age, damn near thrown into it not really getting to know who she really is. Now the girl at age 28 or whateva is confused and lord knows Jay-Z is not making it better.

What Beyonce got on? No

What Beyonce got on? No ma'am to that performance outfit. And that hair has got to go. They could've picked a better "toned down" style. Performance was good though

LOL Ya'll are funny. I've never seen so many people have so much hate in their blood. Your lives much suck to have to put so much effort into it! ..But please keep it going b/c its pure comedy!! :) I thought the reason for the initial JHUD choice was because she was from Chicago as well and is viewed as the "people champion" (i.e. getting kicked off of American Idol and not letting that stop her, believing anything is possible.) She has a great voice as well; but the above was stated several times in why President-elect Obama chose her.

She was capable of being a better role model for the youth but she chose not to but at the same time wants to be treated as if she has. Ofcourse its a parents job but she could have made it her job to be positive with her talent, she glorified street soldiers, soldiers, skank dressing but wnats to be treated as someone would treat a Michelle Obama, keep dreaming beyotch. CLASSIC!!! COME HERE MORE OFTEN!!! I agreeeeee with both of you! I loved your post and u need to come here all the time girl!!! :-)I am not a Beyonce hater nor fan, I like her music but no likey her cockiness! And to the chick who said u got "grammar and punctuality" mistakes, shut up! She wrote A LOT for a couple mistakes to happen is OKAY with me..So got sit ya ass down somewhere!!!

You can say what you want

You can say what you want about Beyonce not having any talent. But she is the hardest working chick in the game. She puts 100% into everything that she does, and this speaks volumes, this is why she outsells most other female artists.

I love Bey's red carpet

I love Bey's red carpet outfit but this is not really a Sasha Fierce song so why the glove. But hey get your MJ on. But love the performance and her band. And I gotta respect that work ethic and drive. I like Solange's CD by the way too...we just gotta work on Kelly and Michelle's music.

WOW......we are a very

WOW......we are a very opinionated bunch, good for us. I am sure Beyonce wouldn't hoe it up in front of the first African American President and First Lady and First Children, etc. I would be shocked if they would have the AUDACITY to invite this woman of talent and gyration to sing. Lap dances on stage, check, wearing classy dress and singing a live song in front of her dad and to her dad in a most questionable sexualized way, check (does anyone remember that, did that strike anyone as UTTERLY inappropriate?) Songs that sound good but of little substance, check. Beautiful, check, great dancer, check, internationally known, check Award winning, check. Something of such historic importance qualifies for a JHUD, and A. Keys. I could even see them inviting past drug user Mary J. Blige, why....because their persona's aren't so sexualized and substance/soul comes from them. Beyonce is a true WONDER in many rights, but if I had $ and Power and able to choose any performer to perform in front of my mom, my daughter, my son and family/few friends and guests, Beyonce would not be on my short or long or any list of choices. It wouldn't be jealousy, it would be that my choice of performers is represnetative of me and my choices and where my mind/head is. Not with her, though she sounds and dances well. The end.

However, you can tell that Rihanna has great style. She does not look forced and her fashion sense is consistent. Beyonce on the other hand looks incredibly forced. Also, I think she has the widest set of hips that I have seen on any celebrity. Yet she always has to pronounce them by sticking out her hip or putting one leg in front of the other. This girl is so desperate for fame. She once said that she can live without being in the spotlight while some celebs cannot. I dont know Beyonce, I dont know about that one. All the same, I am not impressed. I mean I waS NEVER some huge DC fan at all, but I thought that she had something different about her. She dissappointed me. Maybe Im way too educated and too much of an intellectual to really appreciate her music. I am also at the point where I do not respect her. When she opens her mouth it just takes away from her- she sounds like she has a limited vocab since everything is beautiful and amazing. She doesnt answer questions, she has not type of morals as she endorses anything it seems. She lies to her fans. Now this is what I do not get. She has these fans who defend her to the max and will not hesitate to cuss off any blogger who does not like Beyonce for any reason. Yet she lies to them consistently. she stated that she is likes to be natural and when she is not on the stage she doesnt like to wear heels, makeup or anything that is not natural. (well Im sure that I see her in the pool when she is on "vacation" with the wig on, red lipstick, eyeliner, and jewelry on and walking around in heels on cobble stone. she has been seen drunk/typsy on many occassions. She lies about writing her songs. Now if anyone of us did that In University we know what would happen so we all know the importance of citing. Weavonce clearly does not. She claims to love her former bandmates. Yet she does not show true love and support. I mean wearing the tshirt to the album release party does what exactly. I mean those who are there are usually people who are already supporting her and they do not need to be swayed. She is the queen of fixed repsonses. Every interview is in and around the same boring inarticulate fake interview. She gives lapdances on stage and it was not classy in anyway. Now she is screaming on tracks with no real soul behind it. See people are always saying that rihanna cannot perform like Beyonce and this is true. Beyonce has been performing her entire life while Rihanna got an opportunity and is focused on making some coin. For Rihanna to have Beyonce so intimidated is what really makes me laugh. So Rih Rih is doing big tings for females by chopping the locks. She is empowering them to let go of the physical and psychological damaging wigs and weaves and embrace the true beauty. While Beyonce cannot do that evidently. So she decided to tone down the makeup and give wig a break by rocking tracks of weave. Fake hair is fake hair beyonce. However, this is why she does not look the same. Now she looks like any pretty girl who goes and puts in some tracks. This is why everyone is saying that her look is off from what they are use to seeing. In my opinion, Beyonce needs to stop and just be herself. Beyonce makes mindless music for kids. Some adults may like it. However, it is clearly designed for a certain education level. We adults need more than if he liked it then he should have put a ring on it. Come on, this is getting lame. All of these songs have the same idea. True Icons switch it up. What is sad is that Beyonce grew up with me (same generation) and I was influenced by such great music and artists. Was she not affected by any of them ? Alicia seemed to be. Anyway I will sit back and watch this chick make a fool of herself. She should just take the money and run. Yet she wants to be the ICON that she and the rest of her camp know that she is not. Beyonce, please sit down.[/quote] [quote comment="274738"][quote comment="274431"]1.) Rihanna's style.... Check 2.) Ciara's song title....Check 3.) Michael Jackson's glove....Check It's showtime. lol[/quote] that was a great comment!! Bey time is so over. she only offered to perform so that she can be more oer-exposed! I hope that Barack gets his fellow Shy town girl, J-Hud who knocked it out of the park at the DNC. that would help J-Hud to heal. Beyawnce and SoJoke, please sit down. btw...Kelly looks beautiful in the black dress. she's enjoying her new home in the UK and probably cannot wait for the knowles sisters to go home. lol[/quote] Amen, amen and amen.

That beyonce costume just ruined the performance, that "dress" made me laugh real hard. And it's sad 'cause I think she sang it beautifully. She's a wonderful singer, and performer..but need much more to become a legend as Whitney Houston, Patti Labelle e Mariah Carey...

I never post on here, but

I never post on here, but some you kill me. You ask her to cut her hair. If she did that you would say she is trying to be like Rihanna. You ask her to switch up her game, she does that, but you still got something to say. I am so glad that she doesn't listen to people and she just does her. She doesn't have to think that somebody is creeping up on her, because hands down, she is a great entertainer that can sing and dance (At the same time, I might add). Her performance was on point, ask Rihanna or Ciara to sing that song with the different keys and let's see if they can sing it. (Not hating on Ciara and Rihanna because I like both of them, but they cannot sing like Beyonce) I agree the outfit was kind of out there, but her performance was on point. And if you are tired of her, skip over the post, I never understand people who say they are tired of her. Don't read about her, if you are tired of her. geez I'm off my soap box now.
