Black or White? Beyonce Money Hungry? Really?

A few Bey stans have been going back & forth for years now.

You have... where's Beyonce's PR? Why aren't they responding to (insert allegation here)? They can do much better.

Then there are those of us that think... eh.. why bother?

It's really nothing her PR could do. and nothing highlights that fact more than what transpired over the past few days.

She's too light... no wait! she's too dark!

Industry Lashes Out at Mariah, Beyoncé and Others Who Played for Qaddafi's Family

By Steve Knopper
FEBRUARY 25, 2011 12:05 PM ET
Over the past few years, some of music’s biggest names, including Mariah Carey, Usher and Beyoncé, have taken millions of dollars to play private shows for the family of Libya’s brutal dictator, Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi – a man who this week ordered security forces to open fire on citizens protesting his rule, killing as many as "thousands," according to a UN official. During New Year's Eve events on the Caribbean island of St. Barts in 2009, Carey received $1 million to sing four songs for one of Colonel Qaddafi’s sons, according to news reports and music-business sources, while Beyoncé and Usher played for an undisclosed fee the following year.

But now that Qaddafi's security forces have brutally cracked down on protesters throughout Libya, many in the music business are stepping up their public criticisms of the participating stars. "When I saw Beyoncé and Usher and whoever else was out partying with these Libyan criminals … these are people who have stolen tens of billions of dollars from their nation," says Howie Klein, former president of Reprise Records who is now a prominent leftist blogger. "What they all have in common is they're all kleptocracies – they've got a family stealing all the money. And for very, very wealthy American and British pop stars to take part in this kind of thing makes me want to puke."

"People put a big paycheck on the table, and people don't consider where the money is coming from, or what they're at least passively endorsing," adds David T. Viecelli, agent for Arcade Fire and many other acts. "I don't want to specifically say Beyoncé or Mariah Carey behaved unethically, because I don't know all the details. But if it's true that Muammar Qaddafi's son says, 'I've got $50 million, come and play for my buddies,' I really think you have to say no to that. Given what we know about Qaddafi and what his rule has been about, you have to willfully turn a blind eye in order to accept that money, and I don't think it's ethical."

The artists' reps declined comment: "No statement," said a rep for Randy Phillips, the AEG Live concert promoter who manages Usher. Asked if he had any comment, Chris Lighty, who manages Mariah Carey and other pop megastars, responded: "None. I mean, you know, nah." Beyoncé's management company, run by her father, Mathew Knowles, did not return phone calls.-Rolling Stone


maybe the UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT shouldn't have legitimized Gaddafi while Bush AND OTHER EUROPEAN LEADERS OF THE WORLD provided them with diplomatic ties to the world's LEADING BUSINESSMEN.

It's crute how they avoid legal action by posing it as WHAT IFS and I DON'T KNOW, BUT IFS... while STILL attempting to lead it's readers to the THIS IS WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED synopsis. COUPLED WITH IT'S MISLEADING HEADLINE (INDUSTRY LASHES OUT... says Howie Klein, former president of Reprise Records who is now a prominent leftist blogger...adds David T. Viecelli, agent for Arcade Fire and many other acts) while leaving out other artist AND POLITICAL LEADERS WHO'VE RECENTLY ATTENDED AND/OR HOSTED EVENTS FOR THIS VERY FAMILY.... is how it's done for Beyonce.

ANDERSON COOPER'S REPORT HAS pictures of Gadaffi and European leaders hugging. There is footage of the son that was at Beyonce's party ALSO at the White House. Hillary Clinton meeting with him and saying how much the US valued their relationship with Libya.

other performers over the years....

Gwen Stefani
Lionel Richie
Jennifer Lopez
Prince
Christina Aguilera

BUT IT'S ALL ABOUT BEYONCE ONE WHOLE YEAR LATER... COINCIDENTALLY... PRIOR TO THE ALBUMS RELEASE.


then there's THIS.....

Dr Mutassim-Billah Gadaffi

Thursday, 18 February 2010

In our article 'Beyonce hits the wrong note with gig for Gaddafi' (7 January 2010) we incorrectly reported that a New Year's Eve party was hosted by Colonel Gaddafi's son. In fact Dr Mutassim was a guest at the party only. He did not host it or fund it, nor did any of the Gaddafi family. We apologise to Dr Gaddafi for the confusion.


Mystery of who paid Beyonce deepens

The mystery of who paid Beyoncé a reported $2 million to perform at a New Year's party at Nikki Beach in St. Barts deepens. The Libyan leader's bachelor son, Mutassim Billah Khadafy, photographed with his hair slicked back at the party, denies bankrolling the event. While the benefactor who paid Beyoncé remains secret, sources say a $185,000 payment for the bash, attended by Jay-Z, Jon Bon Jovi and Usher, was wired to Nikki Beach by Malta-based financier Joseph Sammut. Meanwhile, Mutassim is annoyed at Europeans who keep confusing him with his violent brother, Hannibal, who was not at the party.



STATEMENT ON BEYONCÉ'S ST. BARTS PERFORMANCE

Statement regarding Beyoncé and her performance in St. Barts from Yvette Noel-Schure (Publicist)

All monies paid to Beyoncé for her performance at a private party at Nikki Beach St. Barts on New Year's Eve 2009, including the commissions paid to her booking agency, were donated to the earthquake relief efforts for Haiti, over a year ago. Once it became known that the third party promoter was linked to the Qaddafi family, the decision was made to put that payment to a good cause.



There will ALWAYS be something "BIG" when Beyonce is about to drop an album.


Beyonce Knowles pregnant with first child? Sunday January 13th, 2008 at 7:14 pm by Lucy

Beyonce Knowles is reportedly set to take part in the 2008 Celebrity Baby Boom - she is rumoured to be pregnant with her first child. Beyonce and boyfriend Jay-Z are rumoured to have married in a secret ceremony after finding out that she was expecting a baby last month. A source told the Sunday Mirror: “Beyonce [was] brought up with strong Christian beliefs. Part of that belief is to be married before having children.” “She’s always been close to her parents and open about wanting a large family of her own one day.” Last year Beyonce said she couldn’t see herself having children for about 10 years because she had so much to accomplish in her professional life first. A second source close to the star added: “This wasn’t planned but the couple are very happy about it.” A spokesman for Beyonce refused to confirm or deny the rumours, saying: “We do not comment on our client’s private matters.”




Fans Not "Crazy in Love" With Beyoncé
7/20/2006 12:39 PM PDT by TMZ Staff

Disgruntled fans of Beyoncé have started a petition to get the musical diva to reshoot the video for her new song "Deja Vu."

The plea to her label Columbia Records, tries to make the case that the video "is an underwhelming representation of the talent and quality of previous music video projects of Ms. Knowles." "Bug-a-Boo" anyone?

The petition outlines seven comical points of contention and claims the editing "causes one to get dizzy and disoriented", calls the dancing "erratic, confusing and alarming" and the fashion "unbelievable and ridiculous." Beyoncé's outfits unbelievable and ridiculous? No way!!

Regarding her scenes with real life boyfriend Jay-Z, the petition believes the sexual themes between the duo are "alarming and show unacceptable interactions between the two."

Hopefully Beyoncé's fans will like the rest of her latest music and can 'check on it' when her new album "B'day" drops on September 5.





HOT PEOPLE: BRITNEY BEYONCE
08-04-2002
IT'S war! Pop babes BRITNEY SPEARS and BEYONCE
KNOWLES are fighting over the same man - and taking
no prisoners.

Both girls have been dating hunky star PHARRELL
WILLIAMS - one half of top R&B production team The
Neptunes.

A friend of Pharrell said: "He has been bragging about
going out on dates with Britney. We were all really
shocked, because everyone thought he was seeing
Beyonce at the time.

"Both are pretty determined women who won't give him
up easily - so there could be some fireworks between the
two of them."

Pharrell met Britney, 20, when he was working on her
new album and they hit it off immediately.

But that came as bad news to Destiny's Child beauty
Beyonce, also 20, who has been seeing Pharrell for the
past few months.

The girls were not exactly the best of mates before they
became love rivals. They frequently fight it out at the top
of the charts.

They are also both desperate for a new man after having
their hearts broken by two-timing boyfriends. Britney split
from N-Sync singer JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE after he
cheated on her with singer TONYA MITCHELL.

And Beyonce is also looking for Mr Right after splitting
from the high school sweetheart she dated for five years.

"He had other girls and played his game," said Beyonce,
who stars in the new Austin Powers movie Goldmember.
"I won't let anyone do that to me again."

Time to take cover!


"It is apparent that there is a consistent plan by some to create chaos around Beyoncés 'B'Day' album release on September 5 in the US. First, it was a petition against the single, 'Deja Vu,' then a rumor regarding conflict between Beyoncé and Rihanna, seizures caused by the 'Ring the Alarm' video, putting out a single to compete with LeToya's album and now to add to all the ridiculous rumors, is my plan to postpone the release of her 'B'Day' album. What will be next? Beyoncé's cut off all her hair? Dyed it green? Maybe she's singing the songs in reverse with some hidden subliminal message!" - Matthew Knowles


Let's all hug & cope with the ensuing 2011 shittin 'pon thee release, shall we....
