Beyonce: We're NOT The Jacksons+Sasha Fierce's GIANT Outtakes

Beyonce is talking about her family upbringing and why the Knowles are NOT the Jacksons in the new OK! magazine:
"I grew up upper-class. Private school. My dad had a Jaguar," she recalls. "We're African-American and we work together as a family, so people assume we're like the Jacksons. But I didn't have parents using me to get out of a bad situation."
I'ma leave that one alone.  Check out some of Sasha Fierce's outtakes from her GIANT magazine photoshoot: Fiiiierce. You can also check out her behind the scenes video at Giantmag.com. More pics when you read the rest... One of my fave photoshoots of hers so far. The Randomness: 1.  Excuse the earlier tech issues...things were getting optimized.  Growing pains...

Datruth82, you couldn't have

Datruth82, you couldn't have worded it better. What do you think of the latest on Beyonce.... the great Etta James threatening to kick her butt. I can understand Ms. James anger. Beyonce has no originality and continues to copy legends music/lyrics and try to make it her own, when we know she can't. She actually thinks it's okay to remake a legend's song and sing it for the Inauguration and we should applaud her. If Beyonce was a "true star" she would create her own. As a matter of fact, why didn't she choose one of her ten grammy songs for the Presidential song like bootylicious etc. Because most of her lyrics are ghetto fabulous and sexual!

Wow...talk about a snobby

Wow...talk about a snobby comment. This 'class' nonsense has to stop. My parents are from a 3rd world country, came to America, worked their tail off and it resulted in my dad having a 7 figure income when I was growing up. I guess I'm confused b/c I've read the articles where Beyonce said her dad had a 6 figure income - which is a phoenomenal accomplishment, by any means, let alone by an African-American man in a country that doesn't always have our best interests in mind. My point is, my dad never, ever, ever mentioned terms like upper class or middle class in our house. Those kind of thoughts never even enter his mind and we were never raised to even think that way. I don't understand it. It's so backwards, like another form of slavery or the caste system in the parts of Asia and the Middle East. At the end of the day, we're all of the same class...as in, human. Not to mention, anyone's money could be completely here today and gone tomorrow. I wonder what she would call herself then...

[quote comment="326745"][quote comment="326724"]So if your daddy having a Jag made you upper class, what about those whose parents drove RRs and Bentleys?? I'm just saying, I think the term you were looking for honey was middle class and sorry, those first 2 albums of yours didn't sound classy in no kind of way anyway, I've only now become a fan because finally you've toned it down on the 1st few tracks of your new album. Funny, my friends and I always said we thought she was a little too ghetto for us so to see her on here talking about upper class, is just laugh out loud funny. Finally, upper class people are usually discreet and would notb refer to themselves as such in this public manner![/quote] That's because people with money don't have to announce they have money...it just shows.....[/quote] Sorry but the poster was correct. I can make 250,000 dollars a year and be considered middle class. Upper/high class is wealth. That is old money. She was wrong plain and simple. It did not have to be said. I believe her parents did use her and she is in denial. What kind of father let's his young teen daughter prance around half naked? He left his job to pimp his daughter. You may say it is support but support is pushing her and not allowing her to be trashy. Or wanting a soldier for that matter.

That was a really wreckless

That was a really wreckless and thoughtless statement. LOL at private school! She could really use a speech coach and a media trainer. When she was doing her Dreamgirls promo, she said on Our World that her family grew up "middle class." Now all of a sudden she was "upper class?" Who is she to redefine "upper class?" I don't know how anyone can defend her. There's nothing to take out of context. She sounded like a straight-up snob in that article. And how can she claim that her parents didn't use her? Papa Knowles quit his job, sold their house, and had Mama Knowles become the bread winner to invest in Beyonce's career. Beyonce's parents were about to divorce over his hasty business decisions. How can one take huge life-altering risks if someone isn't being used?

What she said is

What she said is disrespectful. I am from the city where the Jacksons are come and sorry we don't have doctors or upper-class be in our family. Gary is a steel city and most of the black who live here are low-class. If anyone has read the books or since the movie on the Jacksons would know that their family didn't do it to get rich. They didn't it to give their family more than what they had and to get out of a low-class situation. Most African-American in the 60s and even now, will agree that "we don't gotta like that". So to comment on something that she don't know about or even understand because she was upper-class, she is very ignorant and shows how much she needs to grow up.

Awww B, I'm always on your

Awww B, I'm always on your side...but you're sorely mistaken here. You didn't grow up upper-class. Your mom's a beautician..granted at her own salon, but that's still middle-class. Your dad might have been a successful businessman, but both of your parents worked, out of a need to maintain a comfortable lifestyle and there's nothing wrong with that but that's what defines the middle class. There's no residual income or major trusts/inheritances... Private school education and a luxury domestic car brand does not an upper class childhood make lol. But give B a break y'all-so what she could stand to take Sociology 101 (and maybe English too lol) I still love her to bits...and Sasha Fierce too :-P

CG said it best! First of

CG said it best! First of all, the comments we’re hearing from Beyonce comes as no surprise. “It’s not what’s in her that defiles her, but what comes out of her.” In other words, this is the true, real Beyonce not Sasha fierce. Intially, she had to curtail her tongue to remain in good grace with her fans and in the public’s eye for sales and image sake. Now the side of Beyonce that we’re seeing and will see more of is what’s truly in her heart. There is no Sasha fierce! “From the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” Her marriage to Jay-Z is like icing on the cake. She feels she’s accomplished it all including her marriage to Jay-Z and her success now allows her to speak what she’s always been feeling. She, of course shifts the blame to Sasha fierce. I hope Beyonce remembers, “judge not that you be not juged with the same yard stick.” and “when you think you’re standing, least you fall.” A Jaguar and private school is not “upper class status.” That comment displays her arrogrance and ignorance. My kids went to private school and my husband drove a Jaguar and I drove a Beamer (BMW). We were just two working middle class people who invested in these luxuries. By the way, did not Beyonce and Solange say that they were home schooled? Now it’s a private school. If the truth be told, which is it? Another thing, why would anybody ever compare she and her sister to the Jacksons of all people? The Jacksons were a family group who a couple of them, Michael and Janet went solo. There could NEVER be a comparison no matter how you look at it. She and Solange’s talent and success can not be matched with Michael and Janet or the Jacksons, period. Why would she dare compare herself to the Jacksons or make a comment as such? She can NEVER be compared to them, NEVER!!! Beyonce wants to be an icon like the Jacksons and she should consider it an honor if anyone would ever imply such. Beyonce hasn’t whipped a breast out, but she displayed her vagina in a pair of hot-pants with her legs wide opened on stage while performing. I personally saw the pictures floating around on you-tube. Which is worst? Were they not both bad and her incident even worse? Did you know this: the word “Bootylicious” that Beyonce has been credited for is not her creation. The word “Bootylicious” was used on a sitcom called “Different World.” How could she take credit for that when she knew she copied it. I discerned a long time ago that Beyonce is one of the most insecure and jealous hearted. Destiny Child were patterned after the Supremes. She studied Tina Turner’s moves. She got some of her dancing from the Africans. A lot of her revealing outfits, she stole the style from Tony Braxton. By the way, shaking your booty and crawling around on the floor is not talent nor dancing. The Jacksons are raw talent, dancers and true icons that again, she’ll never be. Also, I learned recently that Beyonce’s father contacts various magazine companies soliciting his daughter. Beyonce is not that sought after, beleive me! If anyone can explain this to me, please do so: I respect their privacy but what’s the big deal that she and Jay-Z are married and happy? To admit that, how is that letting people into your personal life? It’ll be nice just to see Jay-Z walk side by side with her like most couples do. Beyonce, the want-to-be icon has got to feel embarassed. Beyonce did mention, however that she’s planning to start a family in about two years. Guess why? She’ll have to much competition right now because Angelina will be the highest bidder. She and Jay-Z will have a child when the attention can be more on them and the stakes are higher for pictures. Any attention that will keep them in the spotlight, so they won’t fade-out. Let’s see how private they’ll remain then. Oh, and one last thing, people, let’s be honest, Beyonce CAN NOT act! We all want to be a jack-of-all-trades but we all can’t. She has no real talent, so she should stick with what works for her and sells, (singing and shaking her booty in leotards). Beyonce also ahould give credit to the dancehall queens of Jamacia from which her dances imitate!

People need to understand

People need to understand that you can like a person or even things about them, (musci, etc.) but again, do not be blind to the truth of a person's character. Beyonce is overrated! It wasn't until Obama won the Presidential election that Beyonce started claiming her African American roots. Before, she and mama Tina were claiming creo, and to capture the hispanic fans, she made the comment that she wish she was latino. That was all to win over the latinos and boost her record/concert sales. By the way, we are all a mixture of something. Most of our foreparents were raped against their will during slavery, remember. What we're seeing is Beyonce's jealousy being exposed by the words she speaks of others. The Jacksons are icons she wants to become. Shakira is another competitor of Beyonce. She did a collaboration with Sharika to learn her dance moves of which she failed at. If Beyonce can't beat you, she likes to join you. She's one who will get up close with you to dethrong you. Perhaps, she's feeling some relief that Jay-Z finally married her and Rhinna is not a threat to taking her man. But Rhinna is still a thorn in her side. When Beyonce sees that her record sales are decreasing and Rhinna is truly taking over, she'll then say she's ready to start a family, only to stay in the spotlight. As she and Jay-Z claim their privacy, watch for the baby pictures they will be willing to sell. Anyone out there who has more information on Matthew's termination at Xerox, please share your knowledge about this family. Let the truth be told since Beyonce has chosen to lie about her before famous lifestyle, and belittled the Jacksons.

What a silly comment, and a

What a silly comment, and a silly girl. I do not know how she grew up, but I doubt it was "upper-class". I think what she meant is "I grew up better off than most black people around me". That makes more sense and accounts for the way they(her and family included) speak. I went to private school also, and there were a few ghetto queens that squeezed in from time to time.

From CG: It's not about being

From CG: It's not about being able to relate to a certain lifestyle. It's about humility and respecting those who went before you and paved the way. When you're truly thankful, there's a certain amount of humility that you possess. There's no excuse for Beyonce's negative comment towards the Jacksons. Some things are better unsaid and need not be said. Beyonce is projecting an image of Creo descent who came from "upper class." What's upper class? Either you have it or you don't. Beyonce is African American who came from humbling beginnings like most of us. She may well fit into the upper financial status now, but class she doesn't possess. Class is an innate quality that money can't buy. Wake up people, come into the light, it's okay if you love Beyonce but don't be blind to who she really is. Also, it doesn't matter what questions you're asked, what matters is how you reply. Obama was asked a lot of questions during his presidential debate, but it was his response that kept him in the race. Of course, not all of us have common sense nor wisdom. Therefore, Beyonce should do what she does best and othewise keep silent like she does regarding her personal life and marriage to Jay Z.

[quote comment="326647"]Afternoon Everyone, This is a great photo shoot and I don't see anything wrong with her Jackson comment. Only thing I think is a little untrue is the upper class part, maybe upper middle class, but not upper class.[/quote] You're so right. Shows exactly how NOT upper class she was...lol. I love Beyonce but just cause Daddy had a big house and a jag and you went to a private school does NOT make you upper class. They're all upper class NOW....thanks to her...lol. But upper middle is more like it before. People really get me with that. THe really rich people don't have to say it, you KNOW it...lol....even without the jag.

Yo Check this shit out:

Yo Check this shit out: Beyonce, please! How could you compare yourself to the jacksons?? No, your father didnt use you yo get out of a bad situation. Let me tell you what he did. He quit his day job, got on the payroll, then cut, cheat bambuzooled and bought your ass the spotlight so he and your family could come off with not even half the talent as the fucking Jackson Five. So who the fuck do you think you are? Country bitch. You just now started speaking in public for the love of Kelly Rowland who held it down for Destiny's Child interviews. Now I liked your music, but, you are not an ICON. You're not even an actress. Your father underminded real talent to put your ass on the big screen to play roles that were supposed to be significant to the African American experience in music and made it mediocre. That is why Jennifer got the Oscar and not you. Watch your step. Just watch it.

First of all I am not sure

First of all I am not sure what was the question that was giving to her by the post, however; as per her remarks I would say that Beyonce is certainly trying to paint an upscale image of her family that we know is not there. It doesn’t even matter what school she went to or what papa Knowles drove… what matter is the facts and we all know that they have problems when it comes to him controlling the money and consuming some-what kind of substances lol… she just need to stop trying so hard… Miss used the Church to get people’s attention when she just came out and now sliding down polls… oh please tell it to someone who don’t know…… everyone have their flaws…..

I find it interesting that so many people want Beyonce to go away, and then what! A world of Britney Spears and Madonna. Who else is going to be Fab on this site: Ashanti, Ciara or Fantansia. I mean what is it about black culture when someone gets a certain level of fame that it's instinctual to tear them down. Are we still living in a house nigga vs. field nigga world. Usaually it can only be one of us as her level in the world. right now is her turn, let her have her time. Stop hating. Your comments just fuel the fire of Beyonce. shit she is always the most posted person on this site. The more you talk about her. The longer she will stay around. I haven't heard Toni Braxton name in years.

Yes Beyonce's comment was off

Yes Beyonce's comment was off but I dont understand why people are questioning her saying she was upper or middle class. Thats unimportant. Those terms are extremely interchangeable. McCain said middle class was still considered if someone was making $5M. So I think those terms mean different things to different people. I remember hearing someone say that Mathew made six figures, which in my mind is very upper middle class IMO, especially ten years ago. Most Americans werent making 6 figures in the 90's either. Aa for the Jackson comment it came off extremely off putting, not to their children but to Joe. She basically said he exploited them, but then again isnt that the campaign that Michael ran a few years ago. Either way the comment was rude but before I make a final judgement on Beyonce for this, Ide like to read the entire transcript of the interview in order to fully understand the context in which it was said.

Jacksons were poor as fvck and joe see his kids ts keep it as $$$ and a way out of the hood. Lets keep it real. beyonce maybe one of the first RNB female who didn't have a sorrow story from the hood or project. this is one of the reason she hated on. when Barack decide to run for president he did face the same shit because he could not trace his roots back to the south on the plantation. thats why ppl use to say he was not black enough.[/quote] Very true....[/quote] Wrong...there's a flaw in this argument. Beyonce always hesitated to identify herself as being African-American. She labels herself as Creole and wishes she were Latina. I guess now Barack is going to be president, it's okay to be African-American huh? At least Barack always embraced being black even though he could have been in denial (raised by white family, abandoned by his father) like Tiger Woods, but he embraces it proudly.[/quote] excuse me but you should check the meaning of creole in the dictionary first! There are so many meanings: 1) A person descended from or culturally related to the original French settlers of the southern United States, especially Louisiana. 2) The French dialect spoken by these people. 3) A person descended from or culturally related to the Spanish and Portuguese settlers of the Gulf States. often creole A person of mixed Black and European ancestry who speaks a creolized language, especially one based on French or Spanish. 3) A Black slave born in the Americas as opposed to one brought from Africa. 4) creole A creolized language. Haitian Creole. adj. Of, relating to, or characteristic of the Creoles. creole Cooked with a spicy sauce containing tomatoes, onions, and peppers: shrimp creole; creole cuisine. I'm black girl , born in the French West Indies, from a black mother and a black father, I speak french and creole , which is our dialect , and we call ourselves CREOLES! What's your point now! People are killing me sometimes, always looking for any tiny details to criticize!!!!!! are u going to tell me that black people from the west indies are different from black people from AMERICA or LOUISANA! Come on now! We are still BLACK no matter what![/quote] NO EXCUSE YOU!...I know what Creole means, my point was that Beyonce never really identified herself as being black or African-American, as if it's an insult. Only until recently, when Obama was elected, is when she started to say that she's African-American. Yes, we're still black no matter what---tell that to your girl Beyonce![/quote] NOT TRUE! Beyonce's always talking about being black and how other black artists paved the way for her and she hopes she can do it for other black women. And when promoting Cadillac Records she was always saying "It's such a great story from our history that I felt blessed to be apart of it". She may be alot of things, but ashwamed of being black isn't one of them.[/quote] Apparently from this condescending comment, she obviously didn't think about how the Jackson 5 paved the way for her. I've never heard her say anything identifying herself as black or African-American until Obama. What about the Latina comment? And this comment about Cadillac Records--post-Obama. She needs a big piece of humble pie being very careful it doesn't go to her hips...[/quote] Girl, bye! You need more peopl on this one. That latina comment was said because she was talking about how beautiful their culture and countries were. Should she have worded it differently (as she should have done with this Jacksons comment)? Yeah. But don't try to say she's only wanting to rep her black culture because our upcoming President is black. Her track record goes against that. See through your dislike of her and see the facts, please.[/quote] No, she should be careful about what she says in the media. Why do you feel the need to justify her comments because she lacks common sense and good PR. Her comment above is downright condescending and lacks humility. The Latina comment was off. Why do we need to "try to understand" what she means? She claims she went to private schools but somehow cannot relay her thoughts clearly? NO, Beyonce needs to try again. If it weren't for the "hood" supporting DC when they first came out, no one else would know who they were and who she is.[/quote] I clearly said she should've worded what she said better because it comes off snooty. Obviously you haven't seen ANY of my other comments because you'd know I'm not trying to justify a damn thing about her Jackson comment. And I'm not trying to understand her other comments. All I'm saying is it isn't like she claimed I'm creole, not black like Tiger Woods did with his "caublasian" BS or bleached her skin like Michael or just plain said "I'm not black" like Tracy Bingham. You trying to say she's only repping her being black because of Barack is laughable and I spoke on it. You don't have to like her or her comments to know that what you're claiming is a stretch. She seems proud to be black to me because not one interview goes by where she doesn't address being black.

[quote comment="328396"]I remember seeing an interview with Beyonce, Kelly and Michelle a long time ago. Kelly started talking about how hard Matthew worked them and Beyonce straight up shut her down and definately lost her cool defending him. Kelly shut her mouth in a quick hurry...I was embarrassed for her.A pimp is a pimp and a hit dog will holla. She know what her daddy did, so she is just trying to cover up. Beyonce is lucky she had talent and her dad had the money to sacrifice his job to help them make it big. Her IQ seems low and if she wasn't singing, she would be doing a bunch of flat wraps, tacky weaves, and hard ass updos-Oh and bedazzling a bunch of fugly outfits alongside Tina.[/quote] Oh girl you got me lolling so hard!

I am sure she wasn't being

I am sure she wasn't being disrespectful to the Jacksons. I am a huge fan of B Knowles/Sasha FIERCE-Carter. She is another African American star that I am extremely proud of... Her family was living THE DREAM.... before sacrificing to help make her dreams come true. AGAIN something to be thankful for and I am sure she is. She should be proud of her family and what they accomplished while she was growing up. Since she is well on her way to becoming an ICON but has always shown HUMILITY in the interviews that I've witnessed. It is logical to assume that like in most cases the interviewer used an excerpt from the interview out of context for SHOCK VALUE oh yeah and to sell magazines....

Oh Beyonce stop. Mathew has

Oh Beyonce stop. Mathew has used you to get out of a bad situation. Tina herself said in a TELEVISED interview that they were headed for divorce because of money issues, they even separated. You dad couldn't go out and work because he was pre occupied with his piggybank venture. Oh yeah and by the way he exploited the other girls and still continues to do so. Private school does not seem to have taught you some social graces. You do not talk ill of others - especially if you do not know what was happening 100%.

I could care less if she grew

I could care less if she grew up upper, middle, lower, or no-class. I just wish she wouldn't speak at all. Just take pretty pictures, smile, and don't speak. She does herself such an injustice when she speaks. No one who has attended private school does such an injustice to the English language like Beyonce. You would think that after all this time in the business she'd sound a little more literate by now.

[quote comment="328252"]Since when did driving a Jaguar make you upper class? Can you say pre-owned? Not that I know what her family was driving in the 80's, but she should have stated more than a car label to prove that she was raised "upper-class" And even if she was so? That doesn't mean her family is morally superior to those in the lower class. Beyonce does her entertainment thing, but I have never been impressed by a word that has come out of her mouth while speaking and this is probably why she doesn't say much in interviews. And she is dissing Micheal and his fam at that..i'm sure the movie that was made about them was for entertainment purposes and even when they were old enough to make their own decisions many of the Jacksons continued to sing. Beyonce, don't make me call you can idiot please, don't. Be quiet and listen to Daddy.[/quote] And i see so many negros in he hood driving jaguars, mercedes, bmw etc and they definitely not upper class
