MJB NOT Pushed Back+Beyonce Wants You To Have Her Phone

​ ​ ​ ​
After rumors swirled this week of Mary J.'s Growing Pains album getting pushed back, her label Geffen Records just gave YBF the official word that it's all untrue.  Her release date remains November 27th and will stay that way. Beyonce revealed her new Samsung "B Phone" today at the Samsung Experience Store in the NYC:    Beyonce Reveals Samsung Phone Beyonce reveals Samsung Phone This is all coming from the same person who said she doesn't even own a cell and hates talking on one.  Gotta love the promo.  Oh, hello again blonde hair.  And hot leopard Louboutins.

@ CJ This may be late, but I

@ CJ This may be late, but I do have my MBA and do understand the difference between BRANDING and BUSINESS.....they are two different terms, having two different meanings. The companies who got Bey to be the face of their products are good BUSINESSPEOPLE and Bey is BRANDING herself by being the "mascot" for their products. Her name is not on any of the stuff that she promotes....meaning she does not OWN any of it. So that's what is meant by her not being a good businesswoman. Maybe you should try studying at an accredited school.....if you really are a businessman.

Maybe it is just me but does

Maybe it is just me but does B face look 2 thick or what! B is a good entertainer but I must agree she need to take a break & go into retirement w/Jigga and then come back out because girl is truly putting the B in BORED!

I'm not a hater. Hater is a

I'm not a hater. Hater is a term folks like to use when someone has an opinion contrary to their own. I am not a Beyonce fan at all, and honestly, I'm so tired of seeing her everywhere. We have so many African American women in the industry who are just as talented and beautiful if not more than this woman (i.e., Alicia Keys, Keyshia Cole, etc.) She needs to use her talent to give something back to the community. Ms. Keys has the right idea. Not only is she an amazing talent, but she is actively involved in the fight against aids in the black community! Beyonce should take notes!

People who say Beyonce should

People who say Beyonce should "get that money" and go for hers are fooling themselves. there is a difference between being ambitious and being greedy. And agree with whomever said that Beyonce and Co. cant stand it when she's not the star in the limelight. That's why i was soooooo happy Jennifer Hudson EXPOSED Beyonce for the amatuer she is. I like Beyonce..i do, but what i dont like is ALL Beyonce ALL the time. its overkill ESPECIALLY when u dont have an album or Movie out to promote....it just looks fishy to me. Lastly for all those people complaining about people "Hating" on Beyonce,stop and consider their complaints, logiclly and with a level-head and u will see that the Majority would like her if she wasn't a)presented like she's better than other female singer which is NOT true (Mariah Carey and Jennifer Hudson would sing her into a corner)lol b)OVEREXPOSED!

CJ-I strongly hope that your

CJ-I strongly hope that your comment was not in response to mine. I've been in Advertising & Marketing for over 10 years(and also have an advanced degree) I have sat across from Brand Managers at various companies, who have stated exactly what I posted. My beef is not with Beyonce but with the companies like Sprint that do not have a continuous effort support "our" media. The only way that will change is if we stop giving them "our" dollars regardless of who they endorse....

Cheryl in MIAMI!! I LOVE

Cheryl in MIAMI!! I LOVE YOU!! FINALLY SOMEONE POSTS SOME REAL "RESEARCHED" AND THOUGHT OUT THOUGHTS ON HERE! All the hating based on "what my good-girlfriend said" needs to stop. It makes us all look STUPID and proves that we DON'T READ, accepting what our ignorant, hater counterparts tell us....
CJ's picture

and as a business man myself

and as a business man myself (and a very successful one I might add), Bey has been a GREAT business woman. Only an ignorant hater who doesn't know the FIRST thing about being a business person would say that.. For shame.. You might want to check into getting your MBA so you actually can understand the word BUSINESS and BRANDING...

Oprah is the star most of all

Oprah is the star most of all a self made millionaire a woman who should be admired. If Oprah had a class I would be first in line to pay to take it....to learn how a real business woman does it.

B'DAY WAS NOT A FLOP FIRST

B'DAY WAS NOT A FLOP FIRST OFF! B'DAY IS 3X PLATINIUM IN THE US, BECAUSE YOU FEEL IT WAS A FLOP DOESN'T MAKE IT TRUE. MATHEW DID NOT BROKER THIS DEAL EITHER, STEVE STOUT DID! I AM GLAD EVERYONE CAN ATLEAST AGREE SHE DOES LOOK GREAT IN THE PICTURES. * NOTE TO THE PEOPLE WHO ARE TIRED F BEYONCE. NEXT TIME YOU SEE HER NAME TURN YOUR ATTENTION TO SOMETHING ELSE. IF YOU DON'T POST UNDER ANY OF THE POSTS ABOUT HER, PEOPLE MIGHT BELIEVE YOU REALLY DON'T CARE.

Im surprised no one noticed that the phone pictured is the Samsung Upstage. This is actually old info and pics (which proably explains the blonde hair). It was supposed to be Beyonce's phone but somewher along the way it got changed.

It's funny how people call

It's funny how people call Beyonce "a great business woman" when she hasn't done anything. Now I like Bey and her music, but what has she done that's her own?? The clothing line - Momma Tina's. The perfume - Tommy Hilfiger and Armani. The phone - Samsung/Sprint. She might help her mom and be the mascot for the rest, but she's not a businesswoman. Her father does her marketing. Maybe she'll learn from Jigga.

I love love love ybf. Tasha-

I love love love ybf. Tasha- Do your thang, Girl! I always read the blog but until the look of the site changed, I never read the comments. Now, I'm hooked on those too. This is my first time posting. I had to, just to ask this question: Why all the name calling? Bitches? Is it really that serious? Really? The blog and the comments are about celebrities, people you don't even know. So, why would anyone get so angry about a comment that they would feel the need to call another commentor a bitch? That's a harsh word. As a matter of fact it was one of the words deemed harsh enough by a jury to cost the NY Nicks millions of dollars. Wow!

As a Media Marketer, I

As a Media Marketer, I understand why Sprint/SamSung/Beyonce, all came together to make this deal a reality. The black community will continues to outspend any other group to buy what we want, even if companies refuse to speak to us directly. Companies will pay a minority celebrity to endorse a product and leave the deal at that. I really wish that consumers would pay attention to where they see advertisements before they make a buying decision. Love B or hate her, before you go out and get this phone take a minute to see if you’ll ever see a commercial for this product within Girlfriends or flip past an ad in Essence. You won’t – why b/c they don’t care. You’ll buy the phone b/c of B and that’s all Companies care about.

I am not a Beyonce fan and

I am not a Beyonce fan and until she sings something with some type of real emotion I never will be, but if you look at her pics she is starting look tired, worn out, and unhappy. It makes you wonder who really is the paper chaser and who is getting the money. Is it her or the machine (Mama and Papa Knowles) behind her. I think that if she really had a choice she would probably take an extended vacation.

LOL these HATERS on here are

LOL these HATERS on here are SOOOOOOO amusing me. These loser ass black folks who would rather praise Lindsay and Paris or the black folks out here in the industry pulling us DOWN then to congratulate a level-headed, hard-working black woman. And B-DAY has sold $ MILLION!! Check your facts before posting IGNORANCE! I don't know where y'all get your info from. But for future reference, check the BILLBOARD and NIELSEN SOUNDSCAN numbers before posting what your hating a$$ good-girlfriend had to say about her that you decide to post without getting facts for yourselves. Sometimes, as much as I LOVE my race, it embarrasses me that we can't uplift each other. White folks stick to their own and lift each other up, and we will be the FIRST ones to blame the white man for keeping us down when we go on blogsites and find ANY way to tear down those who make us look good. Sad day for black women... Y'all just need to stop! She ain't goin nowhere, and her TRUE fans NEVER, EVER get tired of her. EAT THAT B*TCHES!!! LMAO

[quote comment="2973"]you bitches on here hating on beyonce for making money . I don't hear none of you complaining about Madonna just sign a 120 million dollar record deal and she like 50 yrs old. why you bitches always ready to tear down your own black woman. beyonce is the only black female in the music business making real money. we should support her.[/quote] Bitches? And not once but twice. Nice way to plead your case. No one is complaining about Madonna because no one here gives a damn. This is YOUNG, BLACK & FABULOUS not old, white & irrelevant. You talk about "bitches" tearing down their own black women but you're doing the same thing by posting that derogatory comment. But opinions are like azzholes...everyone has them and can feel free to let that sh*t out.

Jeez, yeah she's successful and all that but people go on like they know her personally.Just because someone expresses a different opinion, doesn't mean they are "hating".[/quote] Co-sign. It amazes me how Bey stans feel their undying love for the lacefront self-hater is justified but the comments of non-stans are unadulterated hate. Miss me with that BS. I'm not mad at Bey for getting her money but it seems like she's selling her soul for it. "What profit a woman (or man) to gain the whole world but lose her (or his) soul?" I hope she keeps selling herself piece by piece until there's nothing left...then maybe we can catch a break from the overexposed- self-hating latina-wannabe creole-gumbo fake-plastic-blonde-barbie looking house of do it wrong-promoting dimwit. Call me a hater...I dare you, lol.

Oprah selling Oxygen is a

Oprah selling Oxygen is a little different. Her name is no longer attached to it. Madonna getting a 150 million dollar record deal is a little different...that's what she does is make records. I admire Beyonce for getting out there and making money with attaching her names to all these products, but I feel like most of you do...sometimes it's like possible overexposure because her face is everywhere SELLING THIS or SELLING THAT. She is BECOMING A PRODUCT like 'really' becoming it and we see it. Yes, all artists 'sell themselves' (via their music or their movies) but this is like REALLY selling yourself. LOL. I'm waiting on her to come out with bed sheets and eyeglass frames (surprised Dereon hasn't done this already) and coffee mugs and makeup (surprised Dereon hasn't done this already). :lol: It's like really CORPORATE as someone said above; very big business. I fear though that with all the business ventures, we might be losing THE ARTIST. ("B'Day" is evidence of that, in my opinion) I can't wait until her next album. Hopefully she's taking her time writing it; hopefully it won't feel as empty and vapid and prepackaged, manufactured as her sophomore release felt to me.

what's the big deal anyway.

what's the big deal anyway. She does her thing so give props. I bet no one said anything about Oprah selling Oxygen network for a hefty 900+mill why not? I mean its money out here to be made & this chick is doing it. Hate/Congratulate/Criticize whatever u must but just know she's getting hers. And for all of those who don't like the chick knock it off cus if u didn't why even post something? I'm SO glad B is back to a blonde- she was looking too much like her mom & sis. maybe she lost a bet & had to rock the black for a month, lol. & either way you look at it shorty does her & she's the hottest chick in the game rock'n Jigga's chain so let her live & eat. What other female or r&b artist has done as much as she? created a brand? whitney...crack(but to her its cheap)...jill scott...hubby issues...janet...superbowl issue &lil midgets but not one has been the face of any world brand (loreal,amex, tommy, etc) I mean i'll just be an assistant so i can eat too!

I think ppl make comments

I think ppl make comments about what beyonce say and dont say which is what her fans are praising her on. For example saying she wrote a song and really she didn't or maybe she dont use the cell phone when she really do I quest what ppl really are trying to say is that she is a LIAR!!! AND she really is not all that she is trying to make herself be

Something about B promoting

Something about B promoting products don't seem right. Kinda like her family management is pushing her to take all of these corporate deals. It just doesn't seem like all of this overexposure is all her. I love Beyonce; she's killing the money game; but I rather see the Beyonce without the made up face and the Jezebel blonde hair. She looks much prettier in her natural state. She had dark hair for two seconds then it was back to ole Repunzel.

You are not the only one

You are not the only one getting tired of Beyonce. I have always been a fan of hers. Lately she seems to be contridicting herself. I heard her say in an interview that she doesn't ever shop online. However in her new American Express commercial, she is buying her nephew a boomerang online. Now she is endorsing cell phones and she doesn't like to talk on cell phones. I guess it's all about that paper. Money has made her eat her words.

~~I do believe that she talks

~~I do believe that she talks on a cell phone. This is 2007! EVERYBODY has cell phones! She just dont like talking on it. I hate talking on my cell phone too but I be damned if I dont pay that bill every month and I be damned if I dont carry it everywhere I go. But guess what, I do dismiss certain calls when it rings cause I hate talking on that thang sometimes. and some peopel want to talk for hours and hours. I aint got time for that and Bey feels the same damn way. ~~But guess what? I would never turn down any amount of money to put my name on a cellphone just because I hate talking on it. People always find a reason to dislike somebody once they make it to the top. That's crazy how we humans are. ~~But I must include, she should have kept the dark hair. It looked better on her...for real yall. Look at tha blonde hair. She has been blonde since she was 16. The black hair looked good. ~~LOL @ Chelsea--"Mybe her phone is only for Latinas."
