Afternoon Tidbits

Beyonce has been tapped to not only sing at the Neighborhood Ball--one of the new official balls hosted by Barack and Michelle Obama--but she is set to sing the song for the Prez and First Lady's First Dance.  They're keeping mum on what the song is.  But the whole ball and the performances will air live on ABC Tuesday night.  Fun times. Naomi Campbell has settled her legal battle with her ex maid--the one she allegedly beat down.  No details on the "agreement", but here's what originally went down:
The assault-prone supermodel has settled her lawsuit with her former Romanian housekeeper, Gaby Gibson. Gibson claimed she was subjected to discrimination from Campbell—or, in Gibson's words, being a "violent super-bigot"—and smacked by the catwalker over a missing pair of designer jeans.
Ok Na Na. The Randomness: 1.  Happy Birthday Baby Girl.

[quote comment="387422"]The head of the Presidential Inaugural Committee said they were trying to keep it a secret. Well, Beyonce must have ate the memo on accident or something, because she let the secret out. She issued a statement about it to Entertainment Tonight: "I am so honored that I will be performing for President Obama and the First Lady. To sing 'At Last' while they have their first dance is a dream come true. I could not be more honored and excited that they have asked me to be part of this moment in history." >>> See...she is already making it about herself.[/quote] Exactly! spokeswoman Linda Douglass of the Presidential Inaugural Committee had said, "It is our hope that we can keep the song secret until the moment" but NOOOO!

Beyonce is turning this event about her. Why did she have to even speak with the press regarding her song or anything else, once again she should have said no comment for the time being. Also she is getting a dress made and all.....

However, I guarantee none of us will be singing any of her songs in 20-40 years and THIS is the difference between being a SUPERSTAR and an ICON. She has been focusing on getting the most awards and not making timeless music. While I admire her determination, my dislike of her stems from first when they kicked those other girls out of DC. That left a bad taste in many folks mouths I believe. Then there is her father, Papa Joe. Then, its like when I see her now, everything looks FAKE. Bottom line, I don't feel moved when I hear her voice. Go to youtube and put in Jazmine Sullivan "In Love With Another Man" or Tarralyn Ramsey "Up Against All Odds" or go back to the 90s music and look up Toni Braxton "Secrets" album. THIS IS TIMELESS MUSIC and truly gifted voices. I'm not big on talking bout looks, but people HAVE gotten caught up in B's look versus what they really feel when they hear her songs. I don't believe she understands the true significance of the inauguration day. I dont think she is seeing past what she wants which is to get one more up on other female artists.

[quote comment="387340"][quote comment="387323"]WTF is wrong with you people?!?!?!? Since when is hard work and determination something to be frowned upon? "Beyonce needs to stop trying so hard... Beyonce begged to sing... I'm tired of Beyonce pushing herself on everything" Get the @#!& outta here! Excuse her for being a hard worker, dedicated and successful! Nobody likes mediocrity and she is trying her damndest not to settle for that. When you go to work everyday, don't you all strive to be the best???? You don't just go there doing just enough to get by... Everyone wants to be #1 at what they do!!! That's why she made 80 million fucking dollars in '08 and her husban made 82... So excuse the hell out of the Carters for grinding... you teach your kids to be mediocre and leave being extraordinary to Bey![/quote] You’re right we shouldn’t hate on her, but to me she can’t really sing. I’m tired of seeing her because she isn’t very talented vocally. She looks like a nice person but the first dance should be sung by someone who can really sing.[/quote] the obamas think she can sing and is classy enough to open the ball.u KNOW WHAT TO KISS....

[quote comment="387328"]i didn't read the 400+ comments above mine, but i just wanted to say that beyonce singing at this event will make it cheap and cheesy.[/quote] No it will not, she is not cheap or cheesy, she always looks very elegant on the red carpet, she will most likely look sooo gorgeous on Innaugaration Day.
