Beyonce Knowles

The Internet is buzzing about how exhausted Beyonce Knowles looked at Rihanna's 3rd annual Diamond Ball on Thursday night. Beyonce and her husband, rap mogul Jay-Z, 47, were among RiRi's well-heeled guests at the benefit for her Clara Lionel Foundation at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC.

Photos from the spectacular event surfaced on Social media, showing Beyonce looking very tired. Her hair was unkempt and her skin looked greasy. Social media users wondered why Bey even bothered showing up when she has twins and a 5-year-old back home in California.

In Beyonce's defense, the 38-year-old singer spent hours feeding Hurricane Harvey victims in her native Houston, Texas this week. It's quite possible that she stayed up late nights preparing food and other goods to give the evacuees.

And don't forget she has three children now. Don't be so hard on her.

  • Nanny

    She looked good. If course she's tired. Babies are exhausting. Also sometimes mother's need a night off from their kids. I nannied for newborn triplets. Their mother skipped out the door when I arrived.


    I'm not a Bey fan but I don't see anything wrong with the way she looks.

  • ChynasHairline

    Why are their chins so pronounced in the last pictute?

  • sunni_daze

    Alot of women wear shapewear. I caught the shade.

  • Coy little wink

    Of course she looks tired...she just gestated not one but 2 she is nursing (i think) that takes a lot out of you...look at them titties ?

  • Yardgirl

    She looks fine. Can she just live? FOH!!

  • MercifulLove

    I think she looks beautiful. She's glowing !!!

  • deadellamore

    She would probably look as bad as you if she spent all day dragging women.

  • Shay AgainstallOdds Lowry

    Chin implants?

  • ???TheRider???

    I'm no fan, but IMO she looks really pretty. Her face is fuller, but softer.

  • yvette46

    Beyonce look beautiful must be something wrong with other people's phones.. Now Rihanna on the other hand just opened a cosmetic line, so why in the hell she looks like a ghost?? lol

  • SpiceGirl

    smh....try bringing up twins and a 5 yr old and tell me how you would look. Again....A pair of lips will say ANYTHING

  • Carmen Harrison Johnson

    She does look tired and I'm sure those Twins are keeping her up late along with other things she's trying to do

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    She looks fine in all the pictures, except the one with Rihanna. Bey is either tired or does not want to be bothered or both.

  • Phillybruh

    Wait she has like 2 nannies for each kid. But she might need to chill a bit.

  • Renee26

    Lord, she could have worn a bikini spank instead of that one leg frock LMAO...otherwise she looks fine to me

  • Renee26

    Engorged for real! Ma Ma lol

  • Renee26

    They make so many different types...she was too tired to pick the right one I suppose LOL

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    R those holes in the spandex? I'm confused not judging

  • Dainese

    Now. She looks like she birthed children and shes exhausted. This is Bey we didn't see the first time around. Let her live.

  • Rayne

    She doesn't look tired to me. Both chicks look gorgeous.

  • Mischelle

    Make that 3 nannies for the twins, if rumors are correct.

  • Rayne

    That's lace. I've got a tan pair like this. Lol

  • Phyllis

    You most definitely read my mind Auntie.. I truly know this look and I must say she does look tired. Must be the kiddos indeed ..

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Thanks Rayne

  • bashi

    She's going for that natural look her skin is flawless

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I want twins did I tell y'all that?? ??

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Bey is like me that's why I'm such a stan. We are introverts who can't be around people for to long or we will get drained. Our energy is from within. love Bey I understand her.

  • Isignedup4this

    Daggum.... I just scrolled back up. They looking like by products of Mr. Leno.

  • Chicagowise

    She doesn't look tired. She looks like she did her own makeup. All the drag queens were too busy hiding in car trunks to beat Bey's face. ?

  • KA

    Rihanna and Beyonce look age appropriate. They are both inspiring - to me it seems like they are both feeling very confident in who they are and don't feel the need to look a certain way to be validated by anyone. I'm even inspired by the spanx! Hopefully they begin to change the tone of culture where women feel they need to look a certain way to be accepted.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    BWAH LOLOLOLOL so wrong but yet so right...

  • Quitedeliteful

    Cold, Chicago, Cold!!! LOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!

  • PussyGal0re

    She looks tired....or high. It has to be exhausting keeping up with your cheating hubby. Bey was not letting Jay attend Rihanna's ball without her. She should have sat this one out. Not a good look for her.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I noticed that too...

  • Quitedeliteful

    Bouncey looks good. If that's tired, I'll take it....

  • toni walker

    How do you know Beyonce is an introvert? She performs stadium concerts that is not an introvert!

  • Kanyade

    Exactly she has two newborns at home. She looks goodt.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Happy Friday ??

    Me too, ain't got time to be pregnant ?

  • bemetoo

    this is how you look when u gave birth a few months ago and this also proves she didnt carry blue

  • Phillybruh

    What's Rihanna's excuse she looks just as tired and ain't had baby the first.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Let me go ahead be nice today. Evidently your no fan????

    She said before she is one. You can do extroverted stuff and still be introverted. It's her dream she is going to be it. Introvert is not shyness.

  • bemetoo

    from working drinkig smoking and hoeing

  • Reina1718

    Sandra i am agreeing with this ONE time about Beyonce lol she do look tired! BUT i have twins too & i could understand lol

  • Reina1718

    & big

  • interestingconcept1

    Welp is anyone doubting now that she didn't have Blue? Also why the one leg spanx??? and not spanx that was for that design?

  • Ryan

    Actually, Janet Jackson's a well known introvert and she used to play sold-out stadiums, so it's possible. That's why anti-anxiety drugs exist.

  • ChynasHairline

    Whatever snatchery bey is wearing underneath that dress I need it for an upcoming event?

  • leapyearpisces

    Add me to the list, times 10 PLUS I am an only child. People swear my INFJ myers briggs profile is wrong, because I am friendly and the "life of the party", but I can only give people so much of me, and then its time for me to go back into my corner of the sky ---- ALONE, and not to be bothered. I love spending time with myself. I have great convos ( I tend to talk out loud to think things out) with myself, and I crack me up most of the times. LOLOLOLOL. Even my twins understand this about me. Yep, I will cop to it. I am the type that wants to be bothered with you WHEN I WANT to be bothered with you.

  • ChynasHairline


  • ChynasHairline

    Hahahahahaah! The truth

  • ChynasHairline

    Yea virgos are natural introverts

  • cherrypie

    Really ya'll???? Who cares if she had or didn't have Blue! How is that even still a topic???

  • ChynasHairline

    Am I the only one that finds Jay attractive??

  • cherrypie

    Only his swag and bank account is attractive to me

  • imright

    i do too ?????

  • Saphistication

    She looks amazing...people are too critical.

  • imright

    she has 4,5 WEEK OLD TWINS (& shes been partying a bit ?) she looks damnn good to me ?????

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Im not a virgo but I am introverted. I enjoy people but I also can do many things alone. Im private too.

    Im a Taurus but I love Virgos. Yall always seem to be genuine.

  • imright

    shaper with one leg cut off

  • Shani

    You are my spirit twin!!

  • ChynasHairline

    I been feelin him since Resonable Doubt and all my friends was like 'bltch is you blind'?

  • imright



    The beauty is that she came and supported Rhianna and they are like the only two black women getting any radio play at all in the music industry. Kudos to the both of them. Beyonce has 3 kids at home now...
    Rihanna has a makeup line that is on fire but not getting a lot of Press outside the Net. Congrats to both women making moves.

  • imright

    both. she doesnt seem to care for Rih all that much TO ME...idk?

  • Moon Lee

    She's happy, and that looks great to me!!!

  • No, you get over it

    I promise, I predicted this post after I saw these pics of Bey and Rihanna earlier this morning on another blog. When I saw that SR posted about Rhi's diamond ball boasting about all of the stars who attended but purposely did not mention the Carters, I immediately thought, Miss wicked, instigating SR is saving the Beyonce photos to post separately so that she can dedicate an entire post to slandering Beyonce over her spanx, or she is going to invent any narrative to post something negative. And lo and behold...

    OAN when did Rihanna turn into Jay Leno by the chin?

  • hottlanta

    All that money on one room UMP, UMP, UMP. Just boggles the mind.

  • sunni_daze

    Maybe she was trying to slim her thighs. I don't know why.

  • MsPam

    It's not your fault that your that you're blind, sending prayers.??

  • Karla E

    Well, she probably is tired. Twins and and a 5 year old, trying to show support to her hometown, Houston. Might be catching up to her but she'll take a break. It's a good show of support for her and Jay Z to Rihanna to be there.

  • MsPam

    Thanks for asking about the Spanx, I was confused. ?????

  • leapyearpisces

    I could tell you something that would really freak you out, but I don't want to give up my identity because I know some co-workers be up here on line. But we share ALOT in common. More than you know. LOL.

  • MsPam

    Her nannies are tired from taking care of her twins, she's been running around like she's childless.

  • MsPam

    I wonder if we can say the same for the nannies?!????

  • Iketernr

    What's up with Rihanna's chin?! DAYUM!

  • NaeNay

    Real women wear spanx. And what?
    Actually I had to throw mine out cause they started cutting into my stomach and thighs.
    And I refused to go up a size. #denial

  • Guest©

    Oh the shade, lol.

  • SG

    She has three children, two of whom are infants. Nothing to see here folks. She's tired.

  • SG


  • Ozad

    newborn twins, yes you going to be tired, but she don't look it and that's good snapback after having twins

  • Cali

    She looks beautiful and of course she is tired; twins and a 5yr old will do that. OAN, her boobies are cray cray lol

  • OvertheMississippi

    Very bad angle. Thinking same thing.

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    Beyoncé got that one legged Spanx on!!?? she must have cut the other leg short! That's something I would do!! ??

  • Cali

    I was into them when they first came out, but no. Pilates fixes all so if you hate cardio like me Ugghhhh then try Pilates, nothing is needed other than a mat to lay on or comforter if you have carpet.

  • Cali

    Crazy black loon, she carried Blue AND her twins

  • Cali

    You can still be an Introvert even though your work may involve dealing with folks to get that green lol

  • Guest©

    Thank you for this. I can't imagine dealing with two babies at the same time. I'm confused about her spanx though.

  • Faithz

    Beyonce look better here than she has in quite
    some time to me.

  • Faithz

    They both look good, But the Camera angle
    made Rih chin long enough to sit shot glasses on.

  • Guest©

    I know I do and I'm slim but I like the snatched, no jiggly look when at work or at a special event.

  • dontgetblocked

    She looks drunk and on happy pills. How do you walk out with a one leg spanx knowing that shyt is going to show? She has a least three nannies for every kid so no she's not up late. She's knocking back that liquor and popping pills.

  • dontgetblocked

    So did Michael Jackson and you know he was an introvert.

  • datATLboi

    She looks like she has 3 kids at home lol

  • Munchosgirl

    No I am with you...

  • BlahBlahBlah

    I think you are. Bey evenknows business move...

  • TheOwley

    This was done to accommodate the dress which is high cut to show the left leg. It would have been better had she wore something different.

  • Samantha G.

    Well theyall looked tired if you ask me ????? AND she got kids at home. Does her every waking moment and hour need to be spent with her kids?? I'd go mad if I couldn't have time away from my kids to laugh, drink and socialize with people around my age

  • Hugga Bunch

    Bey is an introvert.
    Sasha Fierce is not.

  • Munchosgirl

    I am betting those Nannies don't breastfeed those twins though...

  • lQueenNefertiti

    They both looked ran through???


    They both look tired. Theyhuman just like the rest of us humans. Beyoncé have 2 newborns plus doing stuff for Houston, and RiRi been doing fashion. They suppose to be tired ?.


    Jay Leno chin ?????

  • joel adams

    Did anyone else notice dem big lemon drop chestssssss


    Have y'all seen the video? Poor baby was beyond mess up . Something still doesn't seem right.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Ouch. LOL!

  • MsVAllDay

    I think she looked nice, but with a buzz. Ain't nothing wrong with that.

  • PickMeUp

    She still looked better than me on my best day!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    She looks fine to me. She looks cute

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Was looking into it , I'm encouraged to try it , I heard it makes you look lean and feminine ?

  • Lolly Asher

    The rest of the comments are so kind so let me select my words carefully. Who are these imposters? She should not have worn that dress.

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Amen ! Concise and clear .

  • what?why

    Beyonce and Jay Z, both, looked exhausted. Parents of newborn twins will do that to you and I bet the twins and Blue were in New York. Beyonce still looked the best of all of them - she is gorgeous, like her or not. Jay's hair is a bit too dark tho.

  • Reina1718

    Lol aww come on

  • Julia Lyons

    Thank You! She tried to give that authentic tired look to get us to talking about Dem Babies when all along she is simply drunk and high!

  • Faithz

    Right about that, and beside that they are Two of the Hardest working Entertainers in the Business.

  • Faithz


  • Faithz

    Bey got nice legs she should have cut both ot the
    spanx off.

  • Kayke

    Image if that leg was bare, people would be calling her all types of "You just had 2 babies, put it away, you're a mom" negativity written about her. She's being modest and still getting flack.

  • Kayke

    Image if that leg was bare , people would be calling her all types of "You just had 2 babies, put it away, you're a mom" negativity written about her. She is being modest and still getting flack.

  • interestingconcept1

    I'm aware of what it is. I'm asking why??? There are hundred variations why wear this one when you know it's going to show?

  • 2telldatruth

    Well that's a good sign then because that means she's more than likely being a mother to those twins. That's the look of a caring mother right there...

  • Platoon


  • MsChocCookie

    More like Jay Z 55 and Beyonce 43. What a difference a day, a few face lifts, and fillers can make.

  • Elle

    Wow she still looks totally amazingt! Sandra you keep Beyonce all on your mouth like like liqueur! LOL. Stop riding her........... # Beyonce4eva

  • Omandesert

    I wonder if she has a chin implant?

  • Evillene

    Bey is as beautiful as ever.

  • Evelyn

    Its sad how this system has the mind so delusionally twisted that she's suppose to be this perfect beauty roboted doll for the masses. and that's how males think females are suppose to look 24/7 even while sleep. No wonder theres no relationshipships anymore cus once u have to belch, ? or cough its a turn off! An they out the door lookin for a picture perfect female which doesnt exist!!!!

  • Queen B

    Bey looks like a gorgeous mother....i love it!!

  • Fated4greatness

    I'm not a stan of Beyoncé but she's gorgeous in these pictures!!

  • Nina Ross

    Mayberry she's wearing fenty beauty:/

  • Lady_Elle

    Bey looks gorgeous!

  • Tee Bullock

    No, my auntie says he is very handsome and doesn't get why people call him ugly.

  • 4RGSpot

    She looks fine to me just make up free. She actuall looks very pretty and natural and I am not a huge fan of hers.

  • Cali

    Try Winsor Pilates, Buns & Thighs...There is an exercise called fetal thighs and I later understood your legs revert back to infancy! Can't walk, stumbling lololol. You can even watch on YouTube. I used to do straight cardio and weight lifting to slim down, but NOTHING made me look like I did after Pilates, slim lean muscle, I even became double jointed lol The movements you do just hit all the right spots of your body that regular cardio can't do. Try it asap and you only have to do it 3x a week for 20 minutes.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I feel you.

  • 19awesomegrl97

    1 leg spanx?

  • true french


  • Keepin’IT100

    People are so rude.. Leave her alone!! She's a mother and business woman.. She don't live her life based off the same clock we operate off from.. 8 hours a day for her is a distant memory.. She's constantly working..

    It's kind of sad if you think about it.. Yes she has all the money but absolutely no freedom..

  • Saharabutnotdry

    That's funny ! Thanks Cali , I'll def try it .

  • starbright9449

    Rihanna look older here and not in a good way. Beyonce looks older, hot and sweaty from the alcohol and not in a good way. What's going on with the both of their chins? Beyonce has been volunteering and has babies at home so I understand. I guess Rihanna was busy prepping this ball?

  • starbright9449

    Oh and I love Beyonce's dress and body

  • SolEK Ennis-Klyczek

    It looks like Bey has some work done on her face. ?

  • Mrs.Meenie

    Glad to see Mimi and Josline getting along.

  • Crystal Leann

    Holy shit I'm 38 w/ a 14 & 19 year old I CAN"T imagine twin new borns & a 5 yr old!! First of all she's probably still lactating (Do you know how swollen & tender & engorged the breasts get!!) (& You menstruate for another 4-6 wks.) ((This is not including lack of sleep, from your whole routine going out the f'n window & trying to show a 5yr old MORE attention because she has been the only one for 5yrs!!) & It looks like these pics were taken later/at the end of the night= Lights, alcohol, dress attire = GIVE HER A BREAK!

  • Floriduhh Evans

    Am I the only one who think Rihanna looks terrible here? There's your write up...

  • Blah Blahhhhh

    She doesn't look tired. I like her nude face.

  • Mrs. ??????????

    She looks the way she should at her age, also what's going on the pic showing the spanx? It looks like it was photo shopped, take close look at the hand holding the purse....

  • MythCalledLove

    Her hair unkempt?? I think people expect the stage Beyonce. She doesn't look like she has alot of makeup on. I think that's just Beyonce the person, the mom. Maybe she has PPD. She attended was low key didn't seem to glam out because if she had called in her glam squad she would hv stole the spotlight.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    She didn't look bad to me. What killed me was the one legged spanks she had on. That's unacceptable she's been the game too long for a mistake like that. It's her stylist that makes her look so tired. Most of his/her fashion choices looks like 90's outdated fashion

  • MythCalledLove

    I forgot to say that is a forced smile from Beyonce. Maybe she was just tired

  • what?why

    Beyonce needs to say NO to Jay Z when he forces her to mix with these people. She did it with Kimye, why not someone who slept with her husband?

  • NicolaLoves

    I'm going to assume she needed to wear high waist support for tummy control (post tummy tuck - multiples stretch out your skin unless you have them very young), because that made no sense to me either. They have high waist panties version, but they tend to leave panty lines.

    Must be nice to have people who can alter your support garments.

  • just saying

    I thought so too..I didn't think she looked tired or old

  • Sorry_Not_Sorry

    No breaks given she's rich! I doubt she's a hands on mom for long hours in a day so nannies take over, she has a stylist ,makeup artist, wig maker , chef at her disposal. They just bought a $88 million dollar mansion so people need to stop trying to make her relatable as some struggling working mom. Please ?????????????

  • Mojo2

    That is one ugly dress bey is wearing.

  • Imperfectly_perfect

    Am I the only one that noticed Bey has had some "work" done on her face recently? Looks like it could be a chin implants & facial fillers...?????

  • interestingconcept1

    I know what it is, the question is with a hundred variations to pick from why did she chose one that shows??

  • Khaliah

    When Sandra's asking for mercy for Beyonce, I know it's raining snowballs in hell!

  • Malcom Flex

    She looks great. BP just hate on BW period.

  • Cali

    Nope, lose weight RhiRhi ?

  • Amahre Palmer

    She looked beautiful and had a natural glow after a night out. People are so shallow! #Petty

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    What??? Bey doesn't get high.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Yall sound insecure. I doubt Bey is thinking that way.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Lol yes

  • SDot

    Fake it until you can't no more. I know B. We see it.

  • LaGrl562

    Really both of them look like it's hot and stuffy in that bih..........both ladies look nice

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    they have 1 legged spanks......who knew?!?!?!?!?! yep she look tired and jay need a haircut...they just should've stayed @ home

  • gntory

    It's just some things money can't fix & being a mother of 3 is one! Beyonce, welcome to the real world!

  • toni walker

    What in my comment stated I am not a fan? You reaching for no reason. I was just asking a question I actually like Beyoncé (sorry to burst your bubble)!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Lol ok cool

  • justsayin

    Her is skin is glowing. she looks beautiful to me.

  • Shani

    You must give up the intel....

  • Shani

    Wow! What are the odds?? maiden or married name?

  • leapyearpisces

    It's my first name.

  • Shani

    Got it. It is a somewhat unique spelling. I think I've seen another Shani online. Had me confuzzed for a while. Peace and Blessings, sister!

  • leapyearpisces

    Yes I've seen a Shani Bani posting online I was like wah?????? LOL. Mine is pronounced like it's an "a"at the end, and not an "i", thanks, mom (sarcasm), so my name is ALWAYS MISPRONOUNCED. LOL. Peace and blessings to you as well. Enjoy your weekend.
