Beyonce and JAY-Z

Judging from the harsh reviews on social media, Beyonce and JAY-Z‘s “Apesh*t” flopped with music and art fans.

Beyonce and JAY-Z

Social media users criticized the pair for wearing too much expensive designer clothing in the Louvre Musuem among the classical paintings of peasants wearing tattered rags.

By some estimates, Beyonce and JAY-Z changed outfits 16 times in the video.

But not everyone was mad. MCM emailed Sandrarose.com to gush about Beyonce wearing a custom classic MCM Visetos Bustier created by celebrity stylist Misa Hylton for her MCM x Misa Hylton capsule collection.

The head-to-toe outfit features MCM Visetos shorts, hat and earrings, plus a trench coat.

The video opens with Beyonce draped in silk pajamas by Peter Pilatto and JAY-Z clad in a green suit by Dries van Noten.

Later, Beyonce and JAY-Z wear a matching white ensemble by Stephane Rolland.

JAY-Z is seen outside the Louvre wearing a Gucci Stamp Formal Jacket (retail $4,280).

Among the other designer brands the couple show off in the video are Burberry, Chanel, Valentino, Versace, and more.

Fans were livid that Bey and Jay desecrated the museum for their video set.

Diana N. wrote: “I love my Queen Bey, but she needs to ditch this uncivilized ghetto trash. I understand why people are mad. DaVinci probably vomits in his grave right now. This is pure crap.?”

Naomi B. writes: “Yep I agreee! whilst wearing Burberry! Where are the black designers and artists! I don’t dislike them but it’s kind of a contradiction.”

  • 100milesperhour

    Jay looks like a dike. What is this look? Please don’t grow long locks against that mug. He needs a fresh cut to look even .0001% cute. Beyonce…spaced out as usual, carry on.

  • Blak

    YUCK…s**t is right

  • RespectSelf

    With all these crazy new artist that be doing whatever… I’m not sure why there is so much hate towards these 2 lol. They are getting older and trying to remain relevant. That’s what folks do, right?

    You are cute … <3 lololol I feel ya

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    Who else was pissed other Diana & Naomi pissed? Just asking cause they are the only ones quoted in both articles. Are they the upper echelon of influencers/taste makers on SocMed?

    I liked the video and really like the project as a whole. But I also like Jay & Bey, so I could be biased.

    ____________________________

    they’re PAINTINGS! there’s a whole park full of folks wearing tattered rags sleeping across the street from the white house RIGHT NOW! WTF??!!!

  • iWasteTime

    From the paintings they chose to perform in front off, clothing choice, even the venue. The power of that opening shot given by a black couple in the heavily colonized (to this day) Louvre.
    Bey talking her shit in front of David’s, Coronation painting. Black washing those images

  • EMILY POST

    Its a nice video one of the better ones…. from an artistic side.. I like Beyonce singing better than her rapping… as far as the song… She still sounds better than the majority out.
    I always like Jay Z and Beyonce as a couple and individually but their music together …. uhmm idk..

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    Thanks Waste!

    Yeah, I think Sandra is trying that reverse psychology shit again. No one post this much on someone they hate.

    Bet Sandra was dancing around to this in her bedroom all day Saturday like Halle in BAPS.

    Let the hate begin, yes I said hate!!!! This video was everything to me , and plus I’m a label whore ?????. We need more high fashion black designers. Speak on the fact that she wore Laquan Smith for the tour.

  • FukkFolks2018

    They are getting older and trying to remain relevant.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Okay. Here goes my cool on the subject. I tried lol

    Yes. This is what folks do. Absolutely. What they dont do is bash the younger ones coming up though and THEN turn their hypocritical asses around the very next album and put the very folks you just slammed… on your shit. That is what Shawn Carter did here. 4:44 was supposedly so grown man. Dissed the whole genre of mumble rappers much like he was to death to autotune. Now has the same mumble rappers on this here album. I mean it happens. Hypocrisy. If you cant beat them join em. I guess even if you just bashed em. Issa no for me.

    Unfortunately, the people have spoken lol… They are loving these mumble rappers. But I don’t think Bey feels the same way as he does… She’s the one with the mumble rap flow. I honestly think she be controlling their ship. That is what happens when folks marry people with their own minds.

    This post reminds me of a video I saw once where a young lady said she did a private party with a crew for these two clowns , and she said they made her sign a non disclosure notice, she said she was so excited because she loved them but she said they looked nothing like the do on TV….. and she said Beyonce was masculine and Jay acted very feminine , she said she was thoroughly disappointed… she said it was a very weird function. She said she no longer does private parties she said is was real bad energy and the other people she worked the party with was like zombies, it was like they couldn’t comprehend what she was noticing. As I read the comments I feel like her when u people can’t see these people are all smoke and mirrors ,why do u even comment on these entertainers we are the problem . Social Media has fulfilled it’s agenda, it has dumbdown the public even more than the TV, radio, phone , and the computer ever did . They Look like two Robots …Wake up people ….Love and Light

  • leapyearpisces

    They spilled ALOT of tea…. first off they Mike Bivins, and Todd Russaw (Faith ex who I DIDN’T recognize, he didn’t look bad, just very DIFFERENT) wanted to get rid of Irish, Orish, and the other Spanish chick that was in the video with Subway’s this little game we play. They only wanted Misha, and wanted to build a group around Misha….so since their older sister and her hubby were their managers, they tried to fight, but in the end Orish and the Spanish girl got the cut, and Irish was able to stay while they searched for other members. That is when you got Kameehlah and another Spanish chick who dropped out by month 6.
    1. Irish twin’s Orish, died from auto-immune Hepatitis….
    2. Irish was with Ray Gay for 8 years, and still looks broken from it. I mean that was my GIRL crush…she is still pretty, but something is off. I can tell she knows her way around a bottle of anti-depressants and other stuff. She just looks so broken. I want to know more about her story.
    3. Misha is doing the Lord’s work and being out here and being fruitful and multiplying. That girl preggars RAT now….but she still with her husband…so props to them.
    4. I don’t know about Meehlah other than I think she has a very NASTY disposition. I don’t like her energy. As far as her and music ion know sis, I guess she caught his GOODT eye (shoulder shrugs)
    Its a whole bunch I left out believe it or not, a lot of MESS…that goes on with girl groups. Whatever the case, it seems that Irish was the most ummm affected by it all.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    The video was uuuber creepy and condescending. I mean are they saying that they should be immortalized for their greatness like the artist in the Louvre? If so why drape yourself in “Expensive nothingness” to make yourself feel you belong? I think it would have been a more powerful statement to have reglah smeglah clothes on and stand before a Mona Lisa with your greatness seen through your fans eye of you rather than them thinking you are great because of the money spent on the things on your back. Remember Mona Lisa wasn’t great because of being painted on a priceless canvass with super expensive paints. It is great because the artist vision was captured using regular smeglar art supplies. So Carters, your vision was lost in this one in a sea of Expensive nothing… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/68bc52b2a4f54f3dc0d4dea29ec0c12c203c19b65d4d18beb2fbbd13d0be6a55.gif

    These pretentious , washed up, attention whorres kill me, pretending to now be apart of the elite and pretentious classical art scene. Whatever white folks do , if it involves a substantial amount of money(no matter how ridiculous) these 2 always try to jump on the band wagon. Wanting and pretending to be cultured, when he’s nothing more than a ex-drug dealer that doesn’t claim all his kids, played out when it comes to rap, worldly cheating man, that wants to be apart of a world that will never accept him(his oppressors/1%), he’s her handler(MK/Monarch programmer), and she’s someone that can’t even hold a decent conversation, has no personality, and wants to be hood because she married hood, but now they want to be apart of the elite…You will never be, nor should you want to be , those people have a rude awakening coming..SOON! These two are the biggest puppets/jokes! There is nothing they wont do as we can see to try to stop from becoming irrelevant, but it’s over.

  • Applebootay

    “Apesh*t” flopped with music and art fans.

    ALL LIES….FOH! That video was fiyah!!! If you can open the artistic and creative side of your brain….you will see the connection between them wearing designer clothes and the art. You will also see how they re enacted the paintings with black actors in the video…and then finally, if by chance, you actually listen to the words you will get the creative point it pulls it all together…..these are my words, then I decided to research and see if I was on point with my review of the video….see below this paragraph….

    With artworks, like the Mona Lisa, Great Sphinx of Tanis, and Nike
    von Samothrace, serving as visual scenery, the music power couple
    challenges these famous pieces that widely represent white European
    culture.
    In addition to highlighting the non-white images
    already in the museum, Bey and Jay upstage the historically white
    artworks while serving looks and recreating poses.

    In coordinating pastel suits, Beyoncé and Jay-Z casually outdo the most
    famous painting in the entire Louvre: Mona Lisa. The couple offers their
    own stone-cold facial expressions that mirror the austerity of Leonardo
    da Vinci’s painting. Meanwhile, in another shot, a dancer tends to a
    black man’s hair with the masterpiece hanging in the background.

    The sculpture, carved from black granite, contains the body of a lion
    and the head of a king, and is notably one of the few pieces that
    deviates from the theme of white European art at the Louvre. Bey and Jay
    give the statue the recognition it deserves while rapping some verses
    in front of its outstretched claws.

  • Applebootay

    Artist Marie-Guillemine Benoist painted “Portrait of a Black Woman” a
    few years after the official end of slavery, and the striking image is
    one of the only pre 20th-century portraits of a black person at the
    Louvre that’s not a slave. The woman depicted in the artwork stares back
    at the viewer with a straightforward grimace at 5:37 in the music
    video. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/665da0659a80781008172729883d0e02b752742e40c9215548ec218cd69bb9a7.jpg

    Black dancers on the gallery floor challenge white authority in front of

    School the kids, people so quick to spew hate without researching, but claim they so woke!

  • Applebootay

    IF ANYTHING: ALL black people should be proud of what they did here. Why we so mad at them? They actually do give back to the community. Now I’m no Beehive fan or Jay fan, I’m a fan of music and art and history. They creatively pulled all of it together in this song/video. If you have a problem with that, then you don’t know your history at all and are missing some creative genomes.

    off my Pharaoh.” It’s likely a reference to the Great Sphinx of Giza:
    its nose was pried off at one point, and popular myth suggests Napoleon’s forces broke it off with a cannonball while establishing a French presence in Egypt.

  • Yui

    Yep!!! That’s a perfect description, drumline/cheer squad. Also, when she dances I see her counting in her head.

  • Applebootay

    are they saying that they should be immortalized for their greatness like the artist in the Louvre?

    NOT AT ALL….they are actually depicting our black image over the art work…to show contrast. Girllllllll please read my post up top. Their vision was actually very impressive, if you look at it again with an open mind, you will see how awesomely creative it was…

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Gather them with facts!!!!

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    I love how The Carters get people going. Kudos to them for what they did here. If you take all your personal bs out of it and think about the actuality of it , this is a boss move and movement for black people. *Currently blasting Apesh*t in my office*

  • Applebootay

    I’ve been blasting that and NICE…that beat on Nice…actually the entire album is FIYAH…..better than the other one they did together?

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Been bumping it all day in the office!!! Seeing them in Paris next month and can’t wait to hit the Louvre up!!!!

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    YESSSS!!! You better get it in Paris. Show them how we do it.

    If it’s Keith, I understand. I saw him & Charlie Wilson a few months ago, Charlie was better. Moved more, sang very well, wasn’t out of breath & he’s got 10 years on Keith!

    What’s funny is…I’m not even a fan like that….but I took ART in college, History and black history…As soon as I saw the video, I was like hell Nah, how they get up in there like that? and Damn, they’re the first to do it and they represented well. So my kudos is to them for representing our culture over what we’re brained washed with….They just leveled up and I might just buy a concert ticket……not….but I’m considering it!! LOL

  • Mcd15

    Seriously?? ?

  • Applebootay

    CONGRATS….

  • what?why

    Actually I liked the setting – “The Louvre” and some of the clothing. The music was horrible but they’re just trying to survive = who’s their manager?

    Beyonce has an interesting voice, not great, but worthy. Use it … and not rapping.

  • ViolettaBliss

    I’m so over this Bugie duo…..

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Bloop my mouth drop when I saw them in the Louvre. That’s a boss move!!!

  • Applebootay

    In the end, “APESHIT” is a triumph because it is a statement that only The
    Carters could successfully make. The visual tells the powers that be to
    f@ck off with their tradition, their preciously guarded history that has
    sought to erase non-white people from the history books, and their
    preconceived notions about how black bodies can be ornamental.

    They’ve used art to push back, to demand honour for the work they’ve
    contributed. “APESHIT” is a force to be reckoned with, and The Carters’
    use of art to make a statement is an announcement to the world that
    they’ve shaped culture as much as anything hanging on a gallery wall. dazed.com

  • hottlanta

    Can’t wait for Bey to start gyrating in front of the slave castles in Africa. I really can’t wait for her to wear a designer onesie in front of the ” Door of No Return”. We all know where the Louvre/Mona Lisa is but a lot of people don’t know that London has the largest maritime slave museum in the world. Tell us what we don’t know. This is what we get when our history story tellers has been reduced to gibberish language and wearing onesies. All of this fake blackness after Black History Month and they still lives in a white neighborhood and sends Blu to a white school. I would give someone a million bucks if they send those kids to a HBCU since she is down with the blackness. They are black when it is convenient. Best cultural pimp move ever.

  • hottlanta

    Please James Baldwin talks about how much he loved Paris in his writings. I went over there and couldn’t find NOTHING about him as great as he was. Richard Wright, Langston Hughes and a host of others bragged about Paris as well and I couldn’t find nothing. The only honorary black person they talk about and I could get a souvenir on was Josephine Baker. I have been to the Louvre and took some pictures of some of those paintings with black folks in them. So stop giving us a history lesson as if Bey and her pimp excuse me husband is englightening us about our blackness.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Smh…it’s just getting worse and worse with these two. It’s time to retire, be a family and raise those children. Just please. Something. They must owe some people some money because I know they couldn’t be doing this on their own accord. They look ridiculous.

  • Miss Thang

    I get really bad second hand embarrassment when I see them now.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    If this is art..LIKE ART..it is left up to each individuals interpretation of it. I say it represents blacks feeling the need to surround themselves with white folks wealth in order to feel important. Like I said for me it would have been a more powerful statement if they didn’t have a stitch of name brand anything on..because to ME they are more valuable in our culture than whats in the video that suppose to be so high valued…

  • Applebootay

    I don’t think their goal was to enlighten anyone, this is their interpretation , black washing the Louvre because we’re always being white washed. The average artist can’t afford to take such a risk. See me, I know my history and a little bit about art, so I can appreciated their self expression of it. I’m not even a “fan” but I appreciated EACH individuals interpretation of it. Pimps even get respect. Robert Beck, better known as Iceberg Slim, was an pimp
    who subsequently became an influential author among a primarily
    African-American readership. I appreciate and respect the fact that they’re more responsible music. I respect that.

  • Applebootay

    Why? so you can debate it? No thank you. I can agree to disagree and move around. Good Day!

  • Roxie Moxie

    This is when you know it’s time to sit that ass down somewhere. I can’t with these two. smh They are becoming like the fly in your house that you just can’t seem to kill. Annoying!

  • Roxie Moxie

    All of that was staged. In order to stay relevant, why not pretend to care about black people, their plight and their struggles. They truly don’t give two shits. I can strongly assume this.

  • Roxie Moxie

    THIS!!! People are SO consumed with idol worship that they miss this part! I look past all of the glitter and gold (videos, money, clothes, etc) and look at the real shit. Some will forever be brainwashed and that’s ok. Denial is a muhf*cka.
