Everyone knows that BEYONCE

Everyone knows that BEYONCE is the real diva. I believe Beyonce being a diva NOT ugly man-lookalike Ciara. Ciara has alright tracks but aren't something you listen to year round. Now Beyonce has albums out that people still listen to years after they release. Plus if Ciara is so fabulous why did her record label push her album back when it was first due to debut against 50 cent, Brandy <--of all things they were afraid to release against Brandy who has been out of the game for quite a minute. LOL oh CiCi when will you go away

Both were good but someone

Both were good but someone please tell Ciara that being a military brat who has traveled all over the world, has no relation to being form the hood!! Bey's versatility as far as vocals puts her in a completely different category!! Ciara needs to be a lil more real with herself as far a who she is. Her album was going in a completely different direction prior to Bey's album, meaning that it was GARBAGE!!

Put more thought into your

Put more thought into your own projects Super C, neighborhood grocers. Instead of swinging from Aaliyah, Janet & Beyonce's tiddays. Go Girl = No Girl. Just stop! Throw in the towel.

wow. ciara u need to sit down and leave the song up to the real classy diva herself(hint's why she made the song n u didn't).u anit no diva.u r far frm it.i wish these little girls would get there own mind and style and quit riddin off of b's.damn get ur own song and not recycle a beat and steal punch lines from's someone else's i mean hello. it was hot for beyonce but when you jock off her style its not even cool now it just looks like ur a bad artist cause u can't create fire music like her so u copy off her and make ur self some money. just quit.1st u want an alter ego like beyonce then u copy her song wat else r u going to copy next get married to some ugly negro. ciara get a mind of ur own and quit JOCKIN BEYONCE'S STYLE...

Okay, I love Beyonce. She is

Okay, I love Beyonce. She is the hottest in the game. Case closed. She is a talented singer and dancer and "actress". But seriously, I liked some of Ciara's songs but she really needs to find herself as an artist. She seems confused. I'll admit that Bey copycated her with the "If I were a boy" and "Like a Boy" thing but, she did a totally different song and made a completely different point. Ciara was just blatantly trying to mimick what Bey had already done ten times better. NEXT. And seriously, I am sick and tired of people wanting Beyonce to raise their F***ing kids! She is not your child's mother, doesn't go to ur church, and she is not their auntie. So please stop expecting her to make music and videos that are always going to be PG. My parents let me listen to artists like TLC, En Vogue, and Salt-n-Pepa growing up but, they did not expect these women to always make wholesome kid-friendly songs and videos so, when they didn't they turned the t.v. or radio off as should u. Oh, and the reason the lyrics to Diva are simply is because it is a simple song that is about her staking her confidence and throne as Queen Bey. She doesn't have to write Shakespearan poems in every damn song. Shit, even some of Michael and James's lyrics were simple and they are considered kings.

Ciara RAN it!! Stop hating on

Ciara RAN it!! Stop hating on her. Beyonce made if I was a boy after Ciara made hers so Ciara has a right to rap over a beat that Beyonce jacked from Lil wayne. Ciara got more swagger than bee. Beyonce needs to stick to the cute stuff and let SUPER C do da hood stuff.

@ Lee. I was confused in reading your comment. Who are you hating on Beyonce, Jay-Z, or both?
ywhy's picture

Come on now yall girls need

Come on now yall girls need to stop tripping on this hating shit. Both were good. You can have your opinion on who you like best but don't hate. I prefer B but I still think C is very artistic, I have her albums, and I have no need to hate or diss her. I didn't get mad cause she borrowed and remixed B's song. Shit, the music world today is based on borrowing. Hardly anything today in the music world is 100% original. If a line in a song isn't borrowed then the background music is borrowed. Yall need to stop tripping cause yall don't know them and this ain't affectin you.

Beyonce definitely has this

Beyonce definitely has this one.. I`m not a Ciara fan at all.. but even as a non-fan I`m disappointed.. I respect her flow and all.. But it's unoriginal.. The whole mixtape thing is cool, I guess, but she sounds like a kid.. Idk.. It's just wack.

I Don't Like Both But

I Don't Like Both But Beyonce's Version Is Wayyy Better.. Ciara Needs To Sit Down Somewhere & Stop Jackin People's Shit!! I Was Starting To Like Her But She's Falling Off Now She Might As Well Go Backup Dance For Someone & Give Up On The Singing!!!!!!!!!! Do Us & Yourself A Favour Ciara Give Up While You Have The Chance & Stop HUMILIATING Yourself!!! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...

WHAT THE HELL ARE SOME OF

WHAT THE HELL ARE SOME OF YALL SMOKIN??? CIARA HAS NEVER BEEN A DIVA AND WILL NEVER BE KNOWN AS A DIVA. THE GIRL HAS ONE NOTE SHE SINGS ON EVERY TRACK. SHE WAS A HOT MESS FOR EVEN REMIXING THIS, HOW EMBARRASSING. SHE NEEDS TO BE WORRYING ABOUT PUTTING OUT HER OWN DAMN MATERIAL INSTEAD OF REMIXING SOMEONE ELSE. I PERSONALLY DONT LIKE THIS SONG TOO MUCH BUT LEAVE IT TO THE ORIGINAL AND LET BEYONCE DO HER THING. SHE IS A DIVA, A REAL WORLD-CLASS PERFORMER. SUPER CI, YOU FAILED!

Ok so the thing about biting

Ok so the thing about biting is... do it better than who you stole it from and then it's yours. That's why beyonce is better than Ciara. She didn't call all the mags and say she's doing a song with the concept of being a boy... like Ciara. She just released her song and no one has even though about what Ciara made. C boo- Stay crunk&B. Spend some more time on your album. Beyonce is on a whole nother level. You haven't even seen nothing money like what she's making. It's really nice to remix her songs and have an alter ego too but stop putting her name on your stuff. It ain't gone help you sell anymore records. People are not going to mistake your cd for hers and if they do... they'll prob return it. The I am... Sasha Fierce album is hott! Love the concept, love the artist. I appreciated her work and I love watching her evolve, I love watching her play dress up to 'become' Sasha Fierce. This mixtape bull is lame. And that song makes me not want to give it a try. Ciara, I love your music. I'm a dancer and we always use your songs... that's what you do Crunk & B. Comparing Beyonce and Ciara is like comparing apples and oranges... and I'm allergic to citrus. Beyonce all the way!

Ciara’s version is a “little”

Ciara’s version is a “little” better, but overall both versions SUCK! The beat is WACK and the song is WACK. Who wrote Diva? They did a HORRIBLE job. I wonder if Ol’ Creole will take credit for writing this song? Ciara is still trying to matter. She’s jealous of Ol’Creole and RiRi. People may say RiRi can’t sing (which she can) but she is well liked and she’s received WORLDWIDE. Ciara makes me wish RiRi and Ol’ Creole do a song together. This bitch would GO INSANEEEEEEEEEEEE. What’s up CiCi. *********BTW, Why is Ciara’s alter ego’s SKIN LIGHTER than hers? I can’t think of a time when so many black people wanted to be LIGHT, BRIGHT, and WHITE. SMDH at you MOTHERFUKAS. Self hate is growing fast in the black community, and it’s a damn shame.

Agreed...they both did a good

Agreed...they both did a good job, and if Ciara did another verse or two they would be pretty equal when it comes down to it.

[quote comment="355732"][quote comment="355682"]CREOLESUGAR: yeah...I hate to admit it myself (being a fan) but it's true :( She's taken credit or "borrowed" ideas/concepts/performances/songs/etc from A LOT of people. It's a lot to list, but I'm sure you can google it. I'm surprised you haven't heard about it. It used to be something where people just tried to ignore the similarities, but now almost every blog site has had a "is beyonce a "swagger jacker" post. I live it Philly and they were even sort of clowning her on the radio for it one day.[/quote] I am only aware of her borrowing dances for one vid. She even admitted she was inspired by the dances/choregraphed routine....but the difference is, she incorporates it into her own. She's able to take small segments and flip it, and own it. However, she doesn't take credit or borrow songs...she buys songs/tracks from songwriters/producers as all artists do. Sometimes she changes the melody, and/or adds/changes lyrics, in which she is then added to publishing credits. It's the way of the music business.[/quote] LOL RIGHT!! I LOVE BEYONCE .. SO U KNOW IM RYDIN WIT BEY ALL THE WAY ON THIS ONE!

I think they both did real

I think they both did real good man. Although Beyonce KILLED it Cici wrecked it to. They are both on two totally different levels so I don't think you can compare them to each other. They are reppin for both sides!!

BEYONCE DIDNT WRITE THAT SONG! SO HOW IS THAT STEALIN SOMEONES IDEA? BCJEAN WROTE THAT SONG .. PEOPLE NEED TO GET THE FACTS B4 THEY COMMENT ON SHYT THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT

I like Ciara and her version

I like Ciara and her version is okay. I don't think it is a diss to Beyonce at all. However, Bey's version is better. Ciara is talking about getting money but she doesnt make that much money. We all know Bey made 80 million dollars last year and Forbes told us that. But Ciara does have some good punchlines on this song.....

I could not hear it but I

I could not hear it but I don't like the song itself already with B singing it so I really don't care who mixed it. I would like to say to B, a diva is NOT the female version of a hustler, stop listening to Jay lol. I am glad that someone stepped to her because it is passed time so good for Ci Ci but Rhi Rhi should have done it first. I am not a fan of either really but both women are talented in their own ways and also are beautiful. What if..... I agree with you!!! I do not think Ci Ci was trying to be funny in doing this song I think she was just giving B a taste of her own medicine...lol and every chick in the industry should take one of B songs and remake it just to show her she is not the head in game. She sales a lot cause of her backing not just off talent! Ci Ci is a betta dancer and both of them sing around the same to me in other words neither one is a Whitney Huston (a real singer). I just really want B to act as if she is married and stop shaking her fake tail all over the world... I mean I know her husband ain't faithful but she married him so now it is time to act like a lady on camera and put some clothes on. I do remember when she came out with the original DC she said she would never take her clothes off to sale records her mother did not raise her like that LMAO she said if she shows the top the bottom must be covered to leave something to the immagination LMAO so now the world knows bascially how ur kitty looks cause you always have on panties and ya legs always open....is that how she raised you? I personally think she should get back to her own image and stop trying to bite Jay's. Don't get me wrong I am not a fan but that does not mean that I do not like some of her music because I do like the older things all this new stuff I really wish she would have let the other ppl sing their own. All women is not in a rush to get married, and I honestly do not think B should have been either. U have the last name and a fake ring but ur sharing the D. U have ur own money I think B u should have been just as grimey with ya man just as u have been with ya friends in the industry and maybe he would respect you just a lil more. Trust I am not hating but I have known J for a very long time and being faithful to her is something that he will never do, why should he she may have a mouth but she knows when to shut it. She was the in thing at the time and she stuck by him through all the kids that was rumored and all the women she has caught him with. I will be coming after B spot as well 50 did it and blew up so it is nothing personal B and ya husband has been eyeing and making comments to my cuzn lol now she will be coming after him as well and her ass is REAL!!!! On another note TI WTF are u doing with tiny? U
