Beyonce Knowles

Yesterday, Beyonce Knowles dropped her latest music video, "Formation", to make sure all eyes are on her leading up to the Super Bowl this Sunday.

Supposedly, this lame music video broke the Internet last night. I guess it doesn't take much to break the Internet these days.

Beyonce will perform "Hymn for the Weekend" with headlining group Coldplay and singer/songwriter Bruno Mars during halftime. But playing second fiddle is a crushing blow to her ego.

In a shocking move, Beyonce fired her entire management staff after they failed to secure the headlining gig for her at the Super Bowl.

Blue Ivy

The most insulting parts of the video was when Beyonce sings, "I like my baby with baby hair in an afro," while posing her daughter, Blue Ivy, between two black girls with kinky, nappy hair.

The implication is that "beautiful light skinned" Blue Ivy rocks the afro and baby hair better than dark skinned black girls with natural hair.

First of all, just because Blue Ivy wears an afro does not make her black. She is still a mixed race creole child.

And did this heifer really sing "I like my negro nose with Jackson 5 nostrils"? Does she realize every member of the J5 had nose jobs?

Don't black people have enough problems without Beyonce reminding us of our physical flaws?

I understand Beyonce has an incurable need for attention, but she went too far this time.

  • Dontae Smith

    I love my negro nose with Jackson 5 nostrils. This is true Black Pride

    Auntie..I don't think she was bringing us down I think she was bringing us up ? love the chocolate girls and Blue's hair.

  • Milani

    ...I'm here for the comments. I'm sure you all won't disappoint... :tea:

  • Brownie

    She wasn't but folks will try to shade even when this was an empowering attempt.

  • stav

    I think Beyonce has been trying too hard for years. She is not hood or streetwise, which is what she keeps trying to suggest with the street slang she learns from Jay-Z. She is killing me , with the Creole reminders. You're so Creole , speak some fluent French. Right! Her English is bad enough. Blue's hair is just as nappy as Solange's so miss us with that Creole mess. And the point of placing her between those two children is beyond me.Bottom line Blue just isn't that cute. And the song sounds like the usual ,trying to be something she isn't Beyonce.

  • Carla

    hasn't B had a couple of nose jobs and lightning skin treatments???

  • Da realest

    Damn sandra you have turned into the wendy williams of the blog world smh you just say the most hateful stuff...lol tell us how you really feel. All the things you say she implied might just be amplifying yo hatred for Beyoncé cuz never once did she say Blue rocks an afro better than 2 lil girls that dont even have afros, you called their hair "nappy and kinky" smh, you called the african american nose a physical flaw not her, damn b-itch just stick to the facts. You dont know why she fired her management or her family tree...to dislike someone you keep yo head up her arse.

    No problem, hun.

    Sho' did.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Uhhh I really didn't take anything away from this video other than the line about her dad being a negro and her mom being Creole. I definitely didn't have any of the above thoughts captured in this write up. And I most certainly don't think that this the video is some super pro black anthem...trap or not. Idk...it's all a bit contrived...much ado about nothing. Literally.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Beyonce wants black people to feel "empowered" while putting us down as a race of nappy headed people with wide noses.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    You're welcome hun.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Oh and for the record... since when did it become the consensus that big noses or whatever were flaws?? That's some backwards azz self hating thinking in my opinion. I don't look at those of us with big lips and big noses and think flawed.

    Black is beautiful. Period.

  • PhenomenalWomanThatIsMe

    I happen to love my natural hair and strong black features. I don't see them as flaws; so sad that you do.

    Good for you. Let's pretend we don't know why black celebrities get nose jobs, skin bleaching treatments and hair weaves with their first big paychecks. Denial is a helluva drug.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    I love all the chocolate skin in this video. That's all I got.

  • PhenomenalWomanThatIsMe

    I know society says a certain look is preferred; no need to perpetuate the prejudice and self-loathing. Hair is not "nappy", it's just hair. Our features are not flaws, they are who we are. We can embrace them and celebrate them or we can be worse than those who created the "ugly" myth to begin.

  • Ni Ni

    She might not be streetwise but she is definitely ghetto. I dont know why people (not you) insist beyonce is so classy, especially those of us old enough to remember when she first came out. I remember watching an interview with Destiny's child and my mouth dropped when she started talking. It was sad to see such a beautiful girl sound so bad. And i dont mean country. This was a girl that had some dealings in the hood. I dont care what profession matthew had beyonce is and always has been ghetto.

  • the guest

    I appreciate the art direction of the Formation video. I think the video is revolutionary in these times of severe push back against black presence in media. I got the Jackson 5 nostrils and hot sauce in my bag swag references which both are indeed black vernacular pride and cultural statements.

    Blue Ivy is a light brown skinned African American with a Creole maternal grandmother, she is not mixed race. Beyoncé is African American Creole and African American married to an African American man. In fact the two dark skinned girls on either side of Blue actually have "finer" features than Blue and all have the same African American hair texture.

    I think Beyoncé is sensitive about her daughter not being as Creole looking as her and she thought placing her between dark skinned black girls would set Blue her apart when it only accentuated that she is not an exceptional looking child.

    Beyoncé is like a lot of light skinned blacks who struggle with delusions of thinking they are biracial and multiracial. Similar to the struggles of black Latinos. They struggle with being light yet not fair and having black features and kinky hair.

    Beyoncé had nose jobs, skin bleaching and wears blonde weaves not to look white but to pass for biracial or multiracial which she is not. What is admirable about Beyoncé is that even though she struggles with identity she clearly does not want to be white. She didn't grow up white assimilated and even after fame married black which is revolutionary by today's standards.

  • Renee Bee

    Ha! Those biscuits look delish.

  • isis Osiris

    Sandra thinks light skinned, and dark skinned are two different races. lol. Check out the Saan People of South Africa. Research hunty.

  • Deno Spencer

    I thought the song was getto. Prefer her ballots when she's singing. Black people always want to be mixed or Creole. Anything to separate from just black. I thought the song was ignorant and not empowering but rather Nuevo Riche in your face bs.

  • That’s Interesting

    Beyonce is Black! Blue Ivy is Black! This can't be serious!

    To be honest, however, I side eyed Blue Ivy being in between two chocolate little girls. Reminded me of early Destiny's Child and I felt it was for a reason. I also don't see why she said she was Creole and "Negro." Both of her parents are African Americans. The Jackson 5 Negro nose was also a very stupid thing to say.

    With that said, Beyonce or any person who is actually NOT from two Black parents, or has Euro approved looks, is no better, superior, or more attractive than your bluest black person. Getcho mind right! A lot of things make sense now...

    I see this song growing on me already after a few plays. I like greens and cornbread b itch!

  • seun

    Countryonce is a walking contradiction. Blue ivy could have sang this noise.
    Serioisly, if black people in America see this as some form of empowerment, then you all still have a long way to go.

  • the guest

    Keep in mind there are biracial and multiracial people who are not black and that is ok too.

  • BlancheD

    I'm black and don't have either.
    How much non black ancestry to you have to have to not be considered black in your eyes? I really want to know.

  • Deno Spencer

    Yes. Yes. Your right but we no underneath the blond wig is black hair and without the nose job a regular nose. I can except a real biracial child saying that. But yet some of them too not comfortable with they black part

  • the guest

    THIS is a brilliant accessment. I would add wants blacks to feel empowered as long as she is front, center, and superior.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    The song is ok but I do like the video. In my opinion, there's nothing empowering about the song, just Beyonce trying to push the envelope...Trying to be different. If this song or video empowers you, do you boo boo. No judgment here.

  • the guest

    Back in the day Jackson 5 nostrils was a prideful saying. I remember it.

  • That’s Interesting

    Thank you! Wtf?!

  • stav

    You hit the nail on the head about the reasoning for placing her between the two girls, as well as Beyonce's insecurity regarding her daughter.Quite accurate, I appreciate your perspective.

  • That’s Interesting

    Yep.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    With all due respect...

    They get nose jobs and bleach their skin because they have bought into the European definition of beauty. Because they are ignorant, self loathing, beings. NOT because the features that are generally associated with AA's are in deed flawed...it's simply because their self concept and their idea of beauty is flawed.

  • BlancheD

    I just want to know what is black? How black do you have to be and look to be black to you? You gotta have a bell pepper nose and darker than a paper bag? Gotta have kinky hair? I'm brownskinned and have curly/coily hair and my sister is light with silky wavy hair but we have the same parents ..so is she mixed and I'm not or is it flipped because she has traditionally "blacker" features than me (big nose, big lips etc) .
    What is the real indicator of blackness for you Auntie?

  • Deno Spencer

    Well written.

  • Mel

    I look forward to seeing Bruno Mars the most that man put on a hell of a show I tell ya

  • Well.well$well

    ??? I consider myself a Beyoncé fan. I liked the video but I didn't really like the song...Is Creole a race? I don't understand how Blue is biracial....

  • Tammy GILBERT

    because the people that own them don"t like b folks nose or the black skin they are in so they do have to trim that nose and lighten the skin. they like the big lips tho

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I like Bruno Mars and he's a great performer. I think he'll do a good job!

  • Tammy GILBERT

    petty labelle said she wish she had not messed with her nose at all or bleached at all WHET? i can"t belive she said it.cause she was a lovely dark skin lady when she came out.then the j men started on her about things that needed to be changed if she wanted to make it wowwwwwwwwww

  • Tammy GILBERT

    what ever happen to i am black and proud where are the shirts with the fisk on them.

  • 1/8

    There is nothing wrong with dark skin or natural hair, but I noticed Beyonce framed her precious daughter with two of the darkest girls she could find.

  • That’s Interesting

    While I personally think Blue IS beautiful just the way she is, I'm not sure how Beyonce thought she would come out looking given her and Jay-Z's genes. If she thinks she herself is not Black or doesn't look Black, I don't really understand that either. I do agree that she is and always has been a proud Black woman. I don't get any vibes from her that she wants to be white. Also, I do believe she had some issues with the way her child looks because she used to cover the poor baby's head in photos and wouldn't comb her hair...VERY AFRICAN hair by the way.

  • That’s Interesting

    I also believe that was intentional...

  • 1/8

    It was deliberate. I can't remember the term for it, but it's a trick used to make a subject more attractive by comparison. Beyonce thinks she's slick. ?

  • SummerBaby

    Thanks for this post @Sandra because I didn't care enough to go look for the video. I enjoyed the video. The song in my opinion was all over the place. If any other artist put out a song like this no one would care & they would probably get joked on.

  • Li

    Well, at least I know where the beat and the music comes from. Louisiana bounce music.

  • HeyNow

    Now she loves her negro nose?

  • S. Williams

    hello!!!!! every once in a while when people get too into hailing her as queen I gotta remind them of why she doesn't talk much anymore in interviews with a good ol' youtube clip LOL

  • seun

    ??? I once stumbled on a youtube video of hers and I was like what? Who talks like this?
    She needs diction and elocution classes.

    She needs to go learn from shaderetha, diana Ross. Etc

    Those older music artistes speak very well.

  • 1/8

    I choose to identify myself as black, even though I am clearly more white than African American. My siblings, who are also "octoroons," identity themselves as "others."

    My mother, who is a quadroon and the inspiration behind my screen name, went out of her way to make sure we didn't overlook or denounce our black ancestry, but that didn't stop one of sisters from freaking out when our mother confronted her with her blackness.

  • scentsychick30

    Oh wow I assumed she was embracing her daughter's hair,guess I definitely missed the shade.????

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Well, she failed because I thought those little girls were gorgeous.

    I get your point though...

  • Pamela

    Yep, I notice her and Blue were the only "light bright" in the video too!

  • 1/8

    There is nothing empowering about a woman degrading herself and embarrassing her child in public.

    It's black history month. If we want to discuss examples of female empowerment, let's look at women like Vel Phillips.

  • 1shy112

    All she was saying with the blue ivy scene is this......

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Exactly! Notice how she posed her smiling, light skinned daughter with good hair in between the 2 frowning dark skinned girls with kinky hair? Why aren't the black girls smiling? It's called "subliminal messages."

  • BlancheD

    Her mother is creole tho...she has very deep French ancestry that can be traced to the 1700s ?. Y'all need to stop tryna invalidate people's self identification.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Well, it appears Beyonce bought into the European definition of beauty long before she made this video. The Jackson 5 hated their wide African nostrils; that's why they all had nose jobs.

    --------------

    Thank you! I was heated when she said that. As a child, I thought the Jackson 5 were beautiful. I saw nothing wrong with their noses. I wasn't aware they hated that part of themselves until they all had nose jobs. So why would Beyonce point out their self hate and cause a new generation of black children to hate themselves?

    I agree, people should be free to self-identity with whatever group they choose. However, I can't force any to accept me as a black man, when I am clearly more Caucasian than African American.

    I'm gay and one of things that ticks me off about the LGBT community is their agenda to FORCE people to accept them. You can't force someone to call a man a woman and a woman a man.

    People need to stop looking for acceptance from external sources and strengthen themselves from within.

  • the guest

    Beyonce is a woman who flosses yet she used to hide her daughter. I found it amazing how people, including Beyonce, expected Beyonce and Jay Z to have a biracial child. It was like the world had to adjust to them having a black child which was heartbreaking to witness considering both of her parents are black. Babies aren't born with the post-nose job nose or with hair the texture of the weave, they are born reflecting the way their parents are naturally born.

Her career took such a turn. Why is she touting all this hood shyt when her azz has probably never spent 5 minutes in the projects, never had the lights cut off, never struggled for food or ever seen, felt or dealt with the struggle? You love negro features and most of the chics in your video are dark BUT you yourself look like a walking Barbie, with the blondest of blond hair which isn't natural for AA's, thinner than my pinky , thigh gapped and thin nosed which none is naturally you . You don't look like no black chic from my way. Your look is more towards the Caucasian persuasion than black and that has NOTHING to do with your Creole background. Monica is hood but she isn't trying to force the issue. She is who she is and she's classy with it but u know that she can turn that side on if need be. This video, is just too contrived. At this age, 35 and still talking about mess like this. Grow up. You can afford to and still slay.

    After giving it some thought, I decided to ignore my homeroom teacher's suggestions and enter my original composition in the contest. I won first place and learned a valuable lesson in the process.

    Agreed, with the exception and addition that Beyonce wishes Blue had so called "good hair". But I agree 100% that because of Beyonce's deep rooted subconscious colorist superiority complex, she does put out colorist subliminal messages.

    I think the inference here is Beyonce trying to portray Blue as having good hair by placing her in a comparative position between two dark skinned girls in the video and Blue is the only one with her hair out.

    She never bleached her skin. I had a friend in college that worked for a radio station (back in the late 1990s). Destiny's Child went to the station for an interview. One of the first things my friend commented on when she came to the dorm room was how light Beyonce was. She was actually shocked. I think they made her wear bronzer and stuff when she was younger to appear darker. Also, you all can say what you want about her perception of her daughter, but I am glad she never tried to change Blue's hair based on the public. I remember how bad people use to dog her and her choice of natural hairstyles for her daughter. I think she is actually very protective of her daughter growing up in the limelight especially when you also remember how brutal people were about Solange's son apperance.

    Incorrect, that is not what Sandra Rose is saying.

    Sandra Rose is correct that biracial and multiracial people have a different racial DNA than African Americans. Even if biracial and multiracial people may choose to identify and socialize as black, they still have immediate Caucasian DNA via parentage.

  • Hmmm~?

    They also look like they have some Asian DNA in them. Those eyes are very telling.

    She never gave a reason. She simply took her pen and rewrote my essay. I can't remember what I wrote about, but I do recall how upset my English teacher was when I showed him the revised version of my paper.

    Creole is a real racial and cultural identity. But Blue is not biracial.

  • the guest

    Beyonce wishes Blue was biracial and framed her with dark skinned girls to make her appear "biracial looking" by comparison. Blue still looked like what she is, light brown African American.

  • the guest

    They were not just gorgeous, they were, Lord forgive me for comparing children, prettier than Blue.

  • the guest

    EXACTLY!

    Reminds of the time I wrote an essay in creative writing class about the first Black president and white folks were trying to kill him. Of course I got an F on the assignment. I remember being so pissed he claimed I didn't follow directions.

    We are in a cultural decline, this video by today's standards is revolutionary. This is the world we live in today.

    The Jackson's introduced both nose jobs and skin bleaching...So.

  • the guest

    Exactly. That was the point. I remember folks saying it in the same spirit as say it loud. They would say black like Michael before the nose or black like the Jackson 5. I remember black folks were not for their nose jobs.

    I'm sorry to hear about your novel. The thought of someone taking a child's creative efforts and "losing it," infuriates me. Have you Googled your former teacher's name to see if she's "authored" any books?

    My 8th grade English teacher was one of the best teachers, I have ever had! As a writer, he encouraged me to find my own voice.

    Well you know Sandra, they gotta shed as much black and ethnic features as possible so we will worship them. You ever notice on most posts ppl talk about how pretty some celebs are, or wish they could be their friend? They sell us a fantasy, and that fantasy is to be anyone other than who we are.

    That's a d@mn shame. I hate it when people let their personal feelings interfere with their professionalism. Even if your teacher was offended by your paper's subject matter, he should have graded you based on your creativity, not to mention your ability to express a strong point of view.

    Sadly, schools are designed to create puppets, not leaders.

  • 1/8

    I hadn't thought about it from that perspective. That's a very interesting analysis and it makes perfect sense. After all, Beyonce does everything she can to mask her own blackness - except when it's convenient.

    I'm confused as to why people say Creole... To me Creole are lost Haitians in America... From the Toussaint Louverture revolution, Haitians sent troups to different black and spanish slave country, even to Brazil. The first mayor of Chicago is Haitian, most of them speak creole and french and even eat similar food...

    Black America got it s freedom 100 years later...something is missing to why?? Because in certain history books troups were sent to Free Black Americans...

    I am glad Beyonce took New Orleans to create controversies

  • starbright9449

    SANDRA you really running your a$$ out. I'm sorry but I have to say it. Beyonce isn't even mixed or half white. Jay Z is black so Blue is BLACK. She's a light skinned, black, kinky-haired child. Her texture isn't loosely curled or silky but I love her thick, full, kinky hair. You were extra bitter in this write up. The video is FIRE but the song isn't anything to write home about. State facts and stop being so biased. She was making reference to Jay Z's big @$$ nose and opened nostril holes lol. She meant she liked the nose like BEFORE the Jacksons had surgery. It's hard to believe you finished school when you can even pick up on that. Beyonce tried to put as many dark skinned people in the video as possible. It's not her fault that she and her child were born light skinned. She even had her dark skinned, thick back up dancer sitting front and center next to her on the couch. You didn't even mention the positive message she displayed about the police gunning down black people. I'm actually embarrassed for you, I know people are reading your write up like wtf.

  • leapyearpisces

    This is not directed to anyone in particular, I even have asked some of my own friends, and family members, because we have differing opinions, but why do some people keep saying Blu Ivy is not cute, or I have others (not on this blog though) say right out that she is ugly. What am I missing? Because I think she is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!! I love all her features, those deep set eyes, those thick eyebrows!!!! OMG she is a beautiful child, and I think she is going to be to die for as a woman. I think Blu is already prettier than her mother.

  • starbright9449

    It seemed like Beyonce wanted as many dark skinned blacks in the video as possible. Blue just happens to be light but if she had put two light skinned, wavy hair babied next to blue you all would be saying she's praising having light skin and silky hair and it's like she's trying to say there's something wrong with being dark. Her backup dancer Ashley usually is front and center is most her videos but she chose the thick, dark skinned chick to be next to her on the couch. Beyonce is darned if she don't and darned if she does.

  • Queen B

    SR....who said we had physical flaws tho ? So are u saying blk ppl with wide nostrils and kinky hair is a flaw? Shame on u smh

    At the ending of the song Beyonce says "You know you that bit** when you cause all this conversation" or something of that nature and she's right. She broke the net and has everyone talking, even people who can't stand her. Guess she is that **tch.

  • Kiki R.

    I've been saying this for years. I remember going to a CD signing back in 2001 when they were promoting Survivor and when Beyonce got out that limo, lord I thought my jaw dropped. She looked like a white woman. I think throughout the years she had tanned herself or if she was bleaching she started very early with it, but Beyonce has always been really light. BUT she has had nose jobs. That's why I can't take the message of her song seriously coming from her.

  • Kiki R.

    THANK YOU!!!

  • DeeFromLA

    "In a shocking move, Beyonce fired her entire management staff after they failed to secure the headlining gig for her at the Super Bowl."

    I would think anyone who's a real BOSS would fire a team that doesn't deliver. I think the firing had to do with the documentary footage licensing issue, but either way somebody failed so they got fired. That's how it's done in the real world. Carry on

  • RobKardashianLovesChocolate

    Beyonce is a tool used by the White Supremist to cause confusion and low self esteem amongst black girls.

    The White Supremist produced these white trash looking beyonce types long ago as a chess move to stay in power.
    They push Beyonce types to the forefront
    As a way to brainwash black women that if you dont look like them you are undesirable.

    1 strategy is ...They want us bleaching our skin so we will die of cancer .

    Exactly you ain't never lied! Yeap made all this money but you can't take country - ghetto out of her. They did their best to hide it. The same with Whitney Houston she was ghetto, got with Bobby and they swore that's where she got it from...NOPE THE PACKAGE CAME THAT WAY. They cleaned it up and presented to the public hoping you would believe.

    I can't believe people think Beyonce is this sweet like, well mannered, proper english southern girl from Texas. Ciara is the same way, her team did wonders as far as image but she picked Future and good at playing baby mama hijinks well for a reason. That girl is from Clayco County.

  • JerseyMom

    I am glad Beyawnce dealt with police brutality. However, I think the social message got lost in the juvenile and petty lyrics of the Formation song.

    Hey she is light skinned with blonde hair so all she has to do is keep popping that coochie and folks will continue to pay $200 plus for her concert tickets.

    No thanks. Next!

  • JerseyMom

    When Jay and Bey were really trying to hide their relationship she was very fair. If she hasn't been on a yacht laid out she spray tans. My friends do it too. If you see some of her pics off guard where she has a low cut shirt or whatever on look at her chest area she's quite fair, way lighter than that pic on her 1st solo/album. She's not that dark and never has been.

  • Layla Leone

Why do you think racism is back stronger than ever our on race can't stand each other and only support each other through negativity.. They really think we are all one big joke!!

    Was she supposed to tan prior to be darker? Was she supposed to have them spray paint her and the baby dark brown? Tell us how she was supposed to change that. And if you noticed, she had all shades of brown in the video, so why add more "light brights" if she and Blu had that covered?

  • Queen B

    Lol right me too!!

  • SameoleJ

    I don't understand why there is a problem with the damn video. People express their opinions in the way they want. I am NO Beyonce fan, but I loved the message and the fact that she wasn't politically correct about it. What is more appalling about this post is that "RIGHTEOUS BLACK" people are agreeing with someone (25%) who constantly bashes any and damn near everything black and would bash you in 2 seconds. But anyway....Happy Monday and congrats Bey, you did what you planned and the people are talking. By the way your baby girl and the two babies beside her are gorgeous!! Guess I better not smile when I am with my dark skinned friends and family, as it will be intentionally trying to make them feel inferior. On to another post!!

    Sandra, what's wrong with the line about the nostrils. Aren't you the one always pointing out the numerous plastic surgeries these celebrities have because they dislike themselves. Now she is pointing it out because she loves her Jigga's nose and she is wrong for that?

  • Sriracha In My Bag

    I LOVE the video, feel very meh about the song arrangement. I probably wouldn't listen to the song if it wasn't accompanied by the video.

  • Ms. Damn Solo

    Bey posted a throwback picture of herself when she was round 5 or 6 and Blue actually looks just like her mom did. Most kids look like both parents but if you see that child with their dad, everybody will say, you look just like your daddy, then mom walks in and they say, you spit that baby out. Blue is absolutely beautiful the way she is.

  • Ms. Damn Solo

    My mom is very light and has been mistaken for white back in the late 70's and 80's. A few of my coworkers have accused me of bleaching, during the winter months I become lighter (like most people). I have never bleached a day in my life. My daughter has a fair color (KMichelle ish) and she always says how she wishes she was light like me and Granny. It breaks my heart because she is absolutely perfect and I remind her all the time.

  • Mrs. ??????????

    I didn't know Beyonce was mixed or even Blue for that matter. The line about natural hair and nostrils shouldn't have ever came out of Beyonce's mouth being that she wears weaves all year round and has gotten at least 3 nose jobs. I pity Beyonce, she wants to be black when it suits her and her fans/stans eat up what she's serving no matter what.

  • Guest who

    Plus Beyoncé had her nose done too I saw old pics of her it's not the same

  • Li

    Beyonce is an entertainer, no different than Jlo, Gaga and so many others who have extensions and coloring. It's entertainment. It's not everyday worker.

  • Li

    What is she saying? Does anybody have the lyrics?

  • Butter CreamFactory

    Wow.... show me where she has had a nose job. She hasnt! you can see that from photos 20 years ago.. She looks the exact same. Blue is beautiful!! How dare you tare down someones baby, saying she is not exceptional looking,really!! Well what, and who is exceptional looking. This is whats wrong with the black race comments like this. You speaking like you be around her and knows how she feels about her self. That was alot to say about someone you have never set down and had a conversation with.

  • Bam Bam Li

    She looks and sounds ridiculous, how long is she going to try and prove she's "hip"? Wth happened to her? She was once in her own league and now, well I guess Rihanna to her happened lol, but still. At 28 I shouldn't be feeling musically older than her smh

  • LibraGirlonly

    I love this video Beyince go girl!? You guys need to listen to the lyrics. She is saying she''s proud of her heritage(creole) Come on people she is black with a creole heritage. What's wrong with saying that? She is proud of her man and his features and her little girl's Afro. We are all mixed with something.

  • Butter CreamFactory

    I dont agree. How did you come to this conclusion? Its took people in the world time to embrace Blue.. Beyonce been repping the beauty in her daughter since day one. Everyone had an issue with Blue's hair and if she cared about what everyone thought it would have showed , but she kept doing her.

  • LibraGirlonly

    The Police Association is mad awwwwwwwwwww. They want to boycott. That's a joke.

I am going to tell her to stop standing next to me in family photos and implying that she is better!! Get in formation!

  • Sleepy One

    Her mom is Creole

  • Empress

    Their father, Joe Jackson, side of family had quite a bit of mixing and would frequently have lighter toned children with grey and green eyes. Joe has hazel/green eyes himself. He HATED african features and tormented those kids. I also think he had his own shortcomings because his own family is musically talented and he was a local celeb when he was young but never got the fame he wanted. He was jealous that his nappy headed wide nosed kids were famous and he beat that self hate into all of them. Latoya was his favorite because she was light skinned, even with her big nose, and had very long hair as a child. SMH he poisoned his family.

  • Sleepy One

    But she didn't fall though!

  • Sleepy One

    I believe she was talking about Jay Z's nose.

  • TheRealLee

    One line is her liking Jackson noses. Is that before or after plastic surgery. Has she seen those noses.

  • Sleepy One

    Didn't she have a crush on her at one point?

  • Sofiyah Balthazar

    Im black with wavy n baby hair, with an afro also lol I didnt need beyonce to sing that in a song to love my true self....

  • micamarie

    Since when did our wide nostrils become flaws Sandra? The Jackson family got Jose jobs because they were insecure and considered their noses to be flaws that doesn't mean they are flaws to the rest of us all the men in my family have very large broad noses and we love them it reminds us of our African heritage that was not white washed away by rape

  • Sofiyah Balthazar

    lyrics and video dont match

  • Empress

    I see her trying. This is the first time I hear a distinct voice from her that is not a fembot. I think that her team influenced her quite a bit and she is breaking free. She has made her money playing the game of what works in media for Black women and now she is coming in with a different voice but still trying to hold her fan base's attention. People who were never fans, like me, probably might say too much too little too late, but then we don't really need to see or hear Beyonce saying Black is beautiful. My parents taught me that. But that 12 year old Black girl who idolizes Beyonce's every move just might feel a little more beautiful today with her afro hair and j5 nostrils. Beyonce is not talking to us, she is talking to them and if they are listening, I'm here for it. It's a start, and a good one based on the crew she has following her.

  • micamarie

    You must be a dark skin girl that hates light skin women how the heck do you get that rationalization smh so typical I'm tired of this inner hate none onus had control over our complexion at conception so if you think less of yourself because you are dark that makes you insecure

  • Marchele

    I was thinking she was talking about Jay's nose.. Maybe cuz I call my husband my negro... I'on know..

  • SehkmetGoddess

    She loves her man nose and not her own? That doesn't make any more sense than the rest of it to me. I digress.

  • Butter CreamFactory

    So are you average looking or above average? And what about who is below average. As a matter of fact point me to the nearest "Looking machine" and tell me how you measure someone's beauty. #brainedwashedbythewhiteman , #wakeupblackpeople ... this is if your black of course, If your white , Im sure you already doing everything you can to look Black... Im sure I look better than you, so Ill say you are BELOW AVERAGE looking!!

  • Empress

    Our people need help. I think there is a great degree of jealousy about Beyonce and that some perception that her child is not attractive was met with glee by a large sector of our pan-african community. I have to say for the 100th time that Creole is NOT a race. It is a culture created from a blend of culture and races(who can tell who has what percentage of what?) Creole has a great deal to do with the Southern region as well. If a Black woman has a baby with a french man no one says the child is "Creole". So can we please get it together. Just about every African-American would have the nearly the same exact make-up as Beyonce. Sub-Saharan African, Native American, European(perhaps some Asian) Even in the Caribbean mine probably comes close with the exception of East Indian percent may be a bit higher and my family has Mediterranean and no Native American. But guess what? We are all Pan-African and so is Beyonce and her child. There is absolutely nothing magical about Beyonce but that damn wig she won't take off. I think that people assume because of their own self hate that Beyonce hated the way her child looks, but I think what she hated was that her Black people weren't willing to see the beauty in that child. On the one hand they are saying that Beyonce wants to be white and is color struck and on the other hand they are saying that her child is ugly because she has her father's nose and beautiful kinky hair. We started dissecting that child's looks before she could even read and to me she looks like any other little Black girl and that is so sad.

  • Butter CreamFactory

    She HAS NOT HAD A nose job.. STEVIE WONDER CAN SEE THAT!!!! , NOR SKIN BREACHING! She is high yellow, I always see her tanning . Why would she do that if she was bleaching?

  • Jozie723

    What? This is just silly.......This was a great song for being prideful about being black.... no self hate in this song at all. Afros and black noses are not flaws.... that's the point of this song.

  • hi-liter

    I think she is really referring to her husbands look with his huge nostrils and all. If she married JayZ, then she cant be ashamed of her blackness.

  • Lovelove

    whoo-who..I guess you told me. #shatdaphuckup

  • Jozie723

    If your speaking of the Melanesian people, it has been tested and proven that their hair is not a product of mixing with Europeans but a mutated gene. Didn't know the San people were blondes. http://www.odditycentral.com/news/black-and-blond-the-origin-of-blond-afros-in-melanesia.html

  • Luvn_it

    Last time I checked isn't an afro natural hair? But yet you write about it like it's something totally different. Why take something positive and turn it into something negative, if she was going on about loving to be light-skinned, having long hair, or what that would have been a problem. Do you really hate this woman so much that you would be the only blogger to talk negatively bout this song?

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Now Sandra you slay me. I don't like Beyoncé! I turned it down in her and Lady Gaga. Beyoncé took over that show though! Heifer ?

  • Luvn_it

    The line about natural hair is about Blue and how they use to keep her hair down. She's saying she doesn't care what anyone says about her hair. Same with the nose line pp are always talkin bout Jay nose, she's stating she likes her man nose the way it is. Neither 1 of those lines where about her personally.

  • Phillybruh

    The firing was likely due to black people don't buy CD's she wants to compete with Adele and they told her this aint the song. Performing this song releasing this video is bad for business.

  • ebonics

    Bey was never that great but maaan she has really fell off lately. She tries waaay too hard. smh.

  • Sircaput

    Sandra you really seem to be in your feelings, I thought this song was awesome and very good for black history month and the things we as a people have been going through, I'm starting to think you work for Fox News and all the other racial outlets in our country. But you keep writing your blogs and giving your weak opinions and showing how highly sensitive you are..I would never call you Auntie cause none of my Aunts would say some of the things you say.

  • ebonics

    Thank you! Its all an act.. girl is trying to be hood, shes far from it. I see right thru her. My question is how you been in the game this long and STILL dont have any real hits!? There isnt even 1 beyonce or destiny child song that I can say would make her a legend. Erykah badu got that status with just her first album and she has had MANY excellent ones after baduizm.. Jill Scott is the same. Bey is plain boring to me musically and physically. All these years and she still remains mediocre no matter how hard she tries. Blaaahh

  • ebonics

    Hahah wish I could upvote ya 1000x! Bey's music is lackluster. Im glad theres some like minded people out there in this land of sheeple! Preach Guurl!

  • shaylynnn

    Girllll what flaws? You are really wild for this write up. I see a lot of people who are very oblivious to their surroundings. Beyoncé being a mainstream artists making a song talking about loving her black features is powerful. Especially during a time where all the cute pop songs are coming from yts w blue eyes & blond hair.. Y'all really just wanna be mad about something. She makes 1 song for young black girls to bop to & all he ll breaks loose. If y'all truly think Bey could've came outta Destiny's Child singing about loving her blackness and be this successful you're delusional. I'm really glad her music is taking the route it is. If y'all really want a write up on the meaning of the video I'll post it, cause somethings I didn't understand but it's all based around a New Orleans theme.

  • lex

    OK... so I already know I'm about to be called a stan or a beehive member for what I'm about to post... but oh well! For the record, I'm not... So, have we ever tried to interperet Beyonce's message for the good?! Meaning, maybe she placed Blue Ivy in the middle to signify that all black is beautiful?! OR maybe that the "Jackson 5 nostril" comment means that she loves her men 100% negro?! Like, in case everyone forgot, Matthew Knowles is 1000% negro with Jackson 5 nostrils. As far as being Creole..... anyone can hardly argue that Ms. TINA is anything but Creole.... so she can definitely claim it. As far as Solange, as my momma would say "she dipped back off em' them genes". I really believe ft hat Beyonce was either tanning or photo shopped to be darker. If you ever looked at her baby pics, you could tell she was one shade darker than white.... I think she was trying to be blacker to be accepted... she got over that after many years of being hated no matter what. Just saying.... black people are our own worst critics and haters. We have been conditioned to put each other down in order to lift the non black up....

  • Moochie baby

    First of all how is she saying that blue is better than the other kids??? Blue's hair is natural 2. Y'all just had 2 make it out 2 be a light skinned thing. Blue is brown skinned anyways and her mom was saying that's how she likes her daughters hair in An afro because it represents black culture 2nd she isn't insulting Black's with the nose comment she is showing respect 2 one of our prominent features..... The Jackson 5 comment is based on what their real noses looked like before surgery... How can y'all ppl always turn something completely around???

  • Moochie baby

    If anything I didn't like the play on hurricane Katrina because I actually experienced that and had 2b rescued so I don't like that she was in the supposed flood waters because she didn't have 2 experience that so she doesn't know how that feels!!! But she could just be calling attention to how we and our city were treated during the disaster so I'm not really mad....

  • Moochie baby

    Lol, that's what I said about the whole creole thing. Now she is embracing this creole from her mom's side! So now she is always in new Orleans.... The whole video was filled with new orleans culture. I'm glad she is representing my city but a few months ago she was still repping h-town!!!

  • Moochie baby

    Lol I feel you but her mom is supposed to be from Louisiana and in certain parts it's a lot of creole folks. We have the same accent and speak the same language as Haitians... Just because a person is light skinned doesn't mean that he or she is Creole and that's what she seems to hold on 2, the light skin and light eyes but in order to be Creole you have 2 speak French... Plz don't jump on me bcuz I agree with u!

  • RobKardashianLovesChocolate

    Yup

  • Kim K

    She is taking pride on what you just said are flaws ...when I look at blue and the other.girls..I see three black children...see we need songs like this for people who think like you... go have a seat and learn god did not flaw any part of his creations.

    That song was trash. Beyonce can sing the damn alphabets and some will loose their mind. That nasal sound. All those slick lines some just don't hear. That video said more than what you think you heard. Damn wake up and quit being sheep. I saw Janet influence in that Maybe just me. The play on Nolo the water cop car scene the church and the black scene with the middle finger. Hot sauce in her bag..Come for me all you want I don't dislike her but I know what I heard and what I saw. Goodbye you lil sheep (that comment is for the folks that probably don't know they are sheep)

  • ShadyBaby

    Some of the interpretations of this video and song are amazing. First thing I want to say for the life of me why do people think Beyonce bleached her skin?? People she's light skinned and just like everyone else we tan. I have pics where I look light and some tan. Hell I don't know it just happens just like I have this damn sandy brown crazy hair. The reference to her baby's hair is because people keep talking shit about it. Yea she can emphasize baby hair to say ummm she's a baby and I don't need to pull my damn BABYS edges out with those bows. The nostril comment is in reference to her husband because people talk about his nose and she's saying "f" y'all I love it. The creole/negro reference is because people keep saying she's mixed race and technically she's not so she's black and proud with a mixture of that Louisana Creole. Ummm... Blue Ivy is in the middle because that's her damn daughter. As far as the other little girls ummm I honestly didn't reference light skin is better I just saw three beautiful babies playing. If they were all light skin then people would have another problem. Shout Out to New Orleans and congrats Big Freedia and Messy Mya(RIP). You don't have to like the song but dang.

  • NAYB

    Exactly. So pathetic.Ok so the other two girls hair are a bit more kinky. Still beautiful and STILL natural. Every woman doesn't have the same texture or skin tone. Love yourself as you are is a message within the song. A message that she completely missed , obviously since she feels the need to compare children. As if they should somehow all be the same. SHE doesnt find beauty in the other two girls which is why she made comparisons that make them seem like bottom of the barrel choices.The Intraracial discrimination is real and so completely disgusting.

  • Toya

    I'm pretty sure she's addressing the ever so stupid waves of criticism over her baby's hairstyles. And wide noses, as the Jackson had back in the day, are the noses that God gave them- they are not flawed. We as a people have beautiful skin in different hues, wide noses, and big lips and asses that folks are paying to replicate. For you to state that she's pointing out our "flaws" is absurd! And the other two little girls (and their natural hair) in the video are beautiful.

    I think people are under the impression that only dark skinned black people bleach. Light skinned black people bleach too, call it brightening and even-ning out their complexion. Yes, Beyonce is naturally very light skinned and she has most certainly bleached because she is much fairer skinned than she was just a few years ago.

  • the guest

    That's what I thought.

  • Legacy

    Stop calling our natural features nappy and flawed! Then maybe you would have a point. Smh. How r u gonna try to say Beyonce is a colorist when u clearly suffer from an inferiorty complex (another form of self-hate) and an incessant need to find flaws in an uplifting video. Putting her daughter in between two dark-skinned girls does not imply she thinks light is better. Stop the nonsense! Then you constantly promote Karruche while saying her makeup line is basically only for Asians, light skinned and biracial people. Seriously? Start your life over Sandra!! And this is coming from a proud dark-skinned woman who proudly wears her hair naturally.

So still can't find a dyck to sux on and die? I love trolls like you -swear you know and don't know shyt but how to be a loser...loser. Beyonce wouldn't piss on you.

I don't know if this was a publicity stunt or her self exposing her own ignorance but it's a wack song! Just because Beyoncé sings it doesn't mean it's good or empowering blackness. I read the lyrics to the song so I could better understand it and I will say it was confusing and contradicting! She and her dancers performing at the SB was an embarrassment to a lot of us in the black community. Not only did she perpetuate black stereotypes towards black women by twirking and dancing like a video vixen but it was also an insult to the true panthers who actually fought and made sacrifices for us. I'm very dissapointed with her. I think it's time for her to throw in the towel because this Formation crap is over the top and is making me as a former fan believe that she is running out of ideas so instead she puts out crap because she knows people will buy $$ into it. People are defending this song like Martin L King sung it. It's wack, it doesn't sound good, it's not empowering blacks, and it's offensive.
