Beyonce Performs Largest Concert Ever+Jill Scott Speaks On Lawsuit

Beyonce performed her largest concert of her career this weekend in Sao Paulo, Brazil.  A crowd of over 60,000 celebrated with B and sang every word to every song--despite their first language not even being English.  She thanked the audience at the end saying "Thank you for having me here. This is my biggest show, and this is one of the best audiences for who I have sung for."

Here's vid from the performance. More pics/vid and Jilly Scott news when you read the rest...

Fun times for B.

In a statement regarding Jill Scott getting sued by her label Hidden Beach, Jill's rep says the lawsuit has "no legal merit" and "misrepresents" the singer's long held relationship with her label home of 10 years: "The lawsuit filed on February 3, 2010 by Hidden Beach Recordings against Jill Scott has no legal merit and misrepresents the history of Ms. Scott's relationship with the label. Jill Scott has the legal right to terminate her recording contract with Hidden Beach Recordings under California's 7-year rule, where she had been a recording artist for more than 10 years," the statement reads. "During her time at Hidden Beach Recordings, she released several highly successful albums. At this time, with many creative projects in the works which include music, film and television roles and product development, Ms. Scott looks forward to continuing to further her artistry and building the Jill Scott brand in other creative environments."

The tickets here are priced just converting US dollars into Reais. The prices were between R$120 and R$700, do the math. And just so you know, the most expensive ones sold out first (closer view).

"Wow..Shakira bombs

"Wow..Shakira bombs everywhere except with you ppl? I don’t know what you are talking about. And if by any slight chance, you referring to Latinos, well my dear, you CAN’T have the sales and success she’s had with just Latin America. If you didn’t know, there is not enough purchasing power in Latin America to make anyone a super star. Again, stop the HS drama and do your research before posting ignorance. She Wolf went Paltinum in Europe way before it was released in the US. In Fact, becuase of her success outside of the US, her album was released in Europe/Asia FIRST. Beyonce is one of my favorite artists. If you missed the point I was tryingt o make, then you prove you just do not have the ability to comprehend writing. Like I said before, No once can do what Beyonce does. NO ONE!!" No one was referring to Latinos, you know the white Spaniards of Europe, so I guess people are talking about the ex-slaves of the Latinos the Puerto Ricans. Since they are the ones talking smack all the time on a black blog no less.

@Factual and Balu I was

@Factual and Balu I was comparing her to them in the sense that not many artist can pack an arena with 60 people. Go back and re read what I wrote(bcus im sure u were reffering to my comment) and you will see that every last person I named is in a league of their own and they were all selling out venues this large when they were at this point in their career. No on was comparing career achievments as far a awards and record breaking numbers bcus we all know that that feat would go to Mariah, Michael and the Beatles when it comes to that. I was only refferencing venue size!! lol

Bey is the best performer since Tina Turner. I just love the Black Bridget Bardo- work it Bey!!! I think Bey gets a lot of hate because she's at the top of her game and most black women are too insecure to give props.. damn shame, but true

R we all reading the same

R we all reading the same post? bcs wat i can read is ''Beyonce performed HER largest concert of her career this weekend in Sao Paulo, Brazil'' so how r ppl comparing her to shakira or whitney? Sad black ppl always find a way to demean their own. Obama is facing tough times from white ppl for trying to accomplish his promises, i bet many of us have already given him our backs let him die with like we did with MJ. When r we gonna be more supportive of our own. Look at white ppl how they're supporting Taylor swift(no talent whatsoever) and Lady gaga just so that they can knock this woman down bcs they know she's on that top of the game. I wish we'd learn...

Oh Yeah Pink is great and so

Oh Yeah Pink is great and so is Lady Gaga! Both women had black vocal coaches all of their lives and it shows. Pink and Gaga are also considered great entertainers, though not necessarily great singers which is fine. There is a place for everybody at the table. I have always loved Pink.

CORRECTION NATASHA: SHE'S

CORRECTION NATASHA: SHE'S PERFORMED FOR BIGGER CROWDS THAN THIS. SHE WAS SAYING THIS IS HER BIGGEST BRAZIL CROWD. She has a few shows there that are all sold out. Big ups to the Brazilian fans!!! She wasn't scheduled to perform there but they wanted her there bad and sent a tape to Angie begging her to come. That's some die hard shit right there.

Great Bey is performing in

Great Bey is performing in Brazil the country with the highest black population in the African Diaspora. They have been clamoring to get her over there for some time because R& B, Jazz is huge in Brazil and so is (Unfortunately) Rap. Two out of three ain't bad I guess. Love the Portuguese speaking people! The President of Brazil Luiz Inacio, who is White European Portuguese, went to various African countries last year (Nigeria, Angola) to thank the Africans for contributing so much to the racial, historical and cultural identity of Brazil. I hope this trend continues.

@WhoGonCheckMeBoo-cosign Sinc

@WhoGonCheckMeBoo-cosign Since when does being someone's fan mean that you idolize them? People are talking about Sade, does that mean that her supporters idolize her as well or do you just admire her work? Admiring someone for what ever reason does not make them your idole. While you might not agree or be a fan of an artist, dont be hateful and be-Little those that do. There are plenty of artist that I'm not a follower of, but it would be ignorant of me to diss their fans! Not liking someone also does not mean that you are a hater but when you follow someone just to berate and negate their accomplishments that does equal a little hateration! LOVE MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND!!

@chantelle You sound DUMB!

@chantelle You sound DUMB! big ego? she’s one of the most humble artists so what the f*ck are you talking about?? So it was a crime to let those people know how much she appreciated their presence? You’re making no sense… ================================================= Ain't nothing humble about Beyonce! If a reporter had asked her what is the biggest crowd she played for and she answered with a number, that would be understandable but to volunteer numbers is so tacky and rapper like. From what I saw at the Grammys and other recent performances, Beyonce status is falling fast. Doing the same ole crap that people have seen so many times before! Beyonce's performances has become boring and predictable! To let Pink outshine you on your Grammy night and Lady Gaga open the show, Beyonce didn't show why she deserved to be nominated 10 times. So many people were so disappointed with her performance!

Shakira bombs everywhere she

Shakira bombs everywhere she goes except with you people. She had to collaborate with Bey and Wyclef to even come close to a hit. She fails in the U.K. and in other European countries. The best British singers are the soulful ones who love our music: Joss Stone, Duffy, Adele, Amy and all the rest. And while I don't think Bey is a powerful singer compared to Whitney, Mariah, and now Fiona and Leona, she is a very good entertainer. She makes up for her vocal shortcomings by putting on a great show. Hvae you noticed that the best singers never use lingerie costumes or gyrate onstage? Whitney never did. Mariah never did. Leona doesn't and I hope Fiona won't either. But I have nothing against B she is a lovely, young woman and has made a name for herself in the industry.

This post is about the great

This post is about the great Miss. Knowles right? So why is it that whenever YBF features this lovely woman some ignorant, clueless SPIC has to show up contributing her two cents about some belly dancer no one in the English speaking world cares about. Why don't they stick to their own blogs in the first place. Everyone on earth knows that White & Black entertainers rule the entertainment world. Hispanics can't sing worth a darn and only emulate. Besides, Brazil is not a Hispanic country so this has nothing to do with you. I swear, I don't know how Black people put up with Spics and yes, I am white but I dislike those Puerto's intensely. The greatest day of my life occurred when Ben dumped that fat, sloppy housekeeper J-LOW Bottom.

i'm not going to name names,

i'm not going to name names, because they know who they are, but its hilarious how its always the same "non" beyonce fans stalking and trolling EVERY SINGLE one of her posts. if i don't like someone i'm not going to waste my time reading about them. my attitude is like "yaaawn - next!" i also cram to understand why certain people are comparing her to other artists. no where does it say hers was the largest performance ever. it specifically says its the largest audience that SHE ever performed for. can you people read? anyway, do you bey! you are proof positive that hard work and determination pays off. congrats!

I guess her team was half

I guess her team was half correct bout the numbers cause some said 30,000 others claimed it was 90,000...regardless, she shut the place down...and people as expected are looking for ways to belittle her achievements...wtf Poor Bey, she has to tell the world that’s the biggest crowd she has ever had. Sad. A true professional singer would have let word of mouth do the talking but since no one was talking, the big Ego that Bey has, had to let the world know ******************************************************************** You sound DUMB! big ego? she's one of the most humble artists so what the f*ck are you talking about?? So it was a crime to let those people know how much she appreciated their presence? You're making no sense...

Haters fall back..if u can't

Haters fall back..if u can't give credit where credit is due, don't bother. Beyonce has never posed NUDE FOR PLAYBOY so wat is this nasty put some clothes on? She has always been classy n tasteful with her designs. She knows crack is whack n doesnt flash and compare her as a performer to her as a person. As soon as she's off the stage she's in normal wear covered up and still classy. Ya'll don't know what costumes are anymore?? NEXTTTT

posted by tiny texan Mon,

posted by tiny texan Mon, February 8, 2010 11:39 AM BAD GRAMMAR, Beyonce! You dissapoint us here in Houston. We don’t all speak like country bumpkins. Great entertainer. Public speaker…not so much. Just sing, and don’t speak. ---------------------------------------------- What she said is grammatically correct, since she used the past participle. It's "sang" OR "have sung"..."have sang" would be incorrect. (And BTW, "disappoint" has ONE "s". Does that mean YOU disappoint Houston?) I'm not surprised that they knew the words (and what they mean), since Brazilian students learn Portuguese, English AND Spanish in school. And it doesn't matter if ticket prices are much lower in other countries, since the cost of living is much lower than in other countries. Even if the tickets were free, that's a lot of people. I wish she would wear a bit more, too, but sex sells. No, she's not the top vocalist I've ever heard, but she IS talented. People who don't like her don't have to patronize her music.

LMAO..Shakira does not bomb

LMAO..Shakira does not bomb in Europe and Asia. She is one of the biggest international acts in history. Too funny. People, get out of your box. American isn't the world. And do your research before saying such things. Brazilians are not Spanish speakers. LMAO....oh the ignorance...
Jennifer's picture

LOL..Shakira has pulled 50K

LOL..Shakira has pulled 50K and more in Africa and Europe, Asia and Latin America(Brazilians do not speak Spanish, BTW). and in the Middle East and India she has gotten over 20k(which no other artist has ever been able to do. And she sells out all the big arenas in USA. Granted, Shakira has been a solo international star for more than 12 years. And it was just one of the many examples. There are other artists that have done 60K and more all over the world. YBF needs to be a bit more responsible when doing their reportings. To say "the biggest concert ever" is not an accurate statement. That was the point.
