Beyonce took that water seen from Aaliyah how many other artist have you seen in videos do what Aaliyah did. Stealing from the dead girl that’s a shame, I guess it is true, Beyonce ass will steal from any and everybody….including the deceased.
December 23, 2008 at 5:57 am
The video is great!!
and WHO CARES if she copied aaliyah. yall make a big deal out of everything! so what!!!! the video is great! get over it! YOU ACT LIKE SHE COMMITTED A CRIME BY DOING WHAT SOMEONE ELSE DID! NO ONE IS ORGINAL NOW A DAYS. ITS ALL BEEN DONE BEFORE!!! im sure you have copied someone before!

December 23, 2008 at 6:09 am

December 23, 2008 at 6:20 am
it’s very ‘flaws and all’http://shopvanillasherbet.com/blog/
December 23, 2008 at 6:22 am
its funny how haters try to get on beyonce for copying!!!! When everyone in the game has copied someone or an idea NO ONE IS ORIGINAL Even the biggest commercial hit rihanna admits that she copied madona and fefe dobson left and right its 2008 and everything is recycled with a new twist …and have u ever thought that she admires the people she copies its a compliment….but haters will never understand…at least you all no she wont be copying yall broke asses she laughin at yall all the way to the BANK
December 23, 2008 at 6:28 am
lol at that last comment…*sigh i loved the video and its nice how she chose a that actor (forgot his name) but they had good chemistry (no pt intended)
December 23, 2008 at 6:31 am
I Love the video. It is amazing and beautiful! Please others who are hating please stop. Can u at least say anything nice about Beyonce. This song is good music and the video is very simple and goes very good with the song. Michael EALY AND BEYONCE LOOK SO GOOD TOGETHER OH MY GOD! JAY-Z U BETTA WATCH OUT THESE FINE MAN IN BEYONCE VIDEOS ARE GIVING U RUN FOR UR WOMAN! CHECK OUT THE CHEMISTRY! BEAUTIFUL RITE!
December 23, 2008 at 6:33 am
She is going to hurt Jay with that video. Jay gives her everything and to say thank you she makes such videos and movies. She is a b**** and has no class.
Poor Jay! He lets himself getting threat like s***. I know he feels not good in that relationship.Watch out Beyonce, he will leave you soon!
December 23, 2008 at 6:34 am
Aaliyah was not the first to do a freakin water scene people. How about Janet Jackson in 1997 for “Everytime” or Madonna in “Rain” in 1995. So leave Beyonce alone! The video is beautiful.
December 23, 2008 at 6:46 am
I like this video…although the lighting is a little too bright sometimes, I get the effect. Nice Job B!
December 23, 2008 at 6:50 am
I guess there are nothing but teenagers that visit this site, because if you think Aaliyah’s the first to swim under water – you’re sadly mistaken.
Bore Bore Snore Snore. NEXT!!!
December 23, 2008 at 7:09 am
I Love Beyonce & This Song….BUT DAMN THIS VIDEO IS BORING..And All Over The Place..And ISNT THAT WATER SCENE FROM Aaliah???
Like the song, LOVE the video. Good to see Michael Ealy again…
December 23, 2008 at 7:12 am
Beyonce hun child i was falling asleep i don’t really like it
December 23, 2008 at 7:26 am
I like how she has grown up, her videos actually go along with the songs this time. This is a very touching video for lovers!!!! The meaning in these videos are awesome…
December 23, 2008 at 7:29 am
BORING! BORING! BORING!
December 23, 2008 at 8:07 am
The simplicity of this video speaks volume…something you can only understand when your really in Love…
I felt like I was watching a movie of two people starting a life together…
December 23, 2008 at 8:17 am
f*** ALL OF YALL WHO DISSING AALIYAH AND TEEN R NOT THE ONLY 1′S WHO VISIT THIS SITE EAT A d*** AND DIE SLOW BEYONCE IS A KNOWN COPY CAT CHECK YOUTUBE YALL STAY ON HER d*** LIKE SHE CARES ABOUT ANY OF YOU GET A LIFE……
December 23, 2008 at 8:40 am
Just like Bey used the water scene after Aaliyah she used it after some one else. How many singers have came out after Bey and did what she did lots so please find another reason to hate. This lady is good at everything she does and people can’t stand it because they favorite singers will never measure up to her. The video was simply beautiful and goes great with the song but lil kids would never understand anything about true concept with all these lackluster singers getting by now days.
December 23, 2008 at 8:41 am
Well… I didnt finish the video… kinda boring
December 23, 2008 at 9:08 am
Good Song….Good Video
December 23, 2008 at 9:09 am

BeYoNcE is the shizzle!
December 23, 2008 at 10:25 am
so mya underwater scence in fallin just is left out right – yall pl statin hatin on this gurl and even though ima hard core kelly fan and still is i can admit when the song is great and the video just sealed the deal – i liked the beyonce side of the album mre and i actually like all of her ballads esp diappear halo sattelites and i also like scard of lonely and hello so she is doing it – the diva video is very gritty and so beyonce – its weird looking at both videos right after each other and seeing the contrast only to realize that its the same girl!! Get em B!
December 23, 2008 at 10:56 am
This is the song from the album that I like most and I really like this video… I can’t say that about “Diva” though… And btw, this actor was in Mariah’s “Get Your Number” video also…
December 23, 2008 at 11:32 am
I CANNOT STOP WATCHING THIS HALO VIDEO THE CHEMISTRY FIRE SHE LOOKS SO BEAUTIFUL & MICHEAL U ARE FINE
December 23, 2008 at 12:10 pm
beyonce tryna cmpete with rihanna, she jealous of her and chris brown so she got a chris brown look-a-alike (michael ealy) in her video nd halo is a sad attempt to be meaningful
December 23, 2008 at 12:21 pm
WOW dis song is soooo cooool!!
man, really luvin B’s CD. BRILLIANT!!
December 23, 2008 at 12:39 pm
December 23, 2008 at 12:43 pm
God, I wish teenagers went to school year round. As soon as they get out for break, they hit the internet and start acting an ass. @Cbsgurl, your comment was one of the most ill-informed and stupid comments EVER. Bey wanted Michael Ealy in the video to compete w/ Chris Brown? CB looks like Bucky Beaver and isn’t attractive to anyone but pre-pubescent girls. Take your ass to school and get an education! plz
Anyways, the video was so simple and beautiful. Just what the song needed.
If you ain’t got nobody to hate on, feel free to hate on Bey. She’ll take it, turn it into profit, and run straight to the bank
December 23, 2008 at 12:54 pm
LOVED the video and song!!! It shows a different side of her. Michael Ealy gave the video the “perfect touch”. B is one BADD b****!! HATERZ r gonna HATE no matter what!!Keep doin ya thing B!!Reppin’ for all tha TRU DIVAZ!!!
December 23, 2008 at 1:07 pm
@ CBSGURL HOW THE HELL IS BEYONCE COMPETING WITH RIHANNA AND GOT SOMEBODY TO LOOK LIKE CB? FIRST OFF MICHAEL EALY IS WAY OLDER THEN CB, NEXT MICHAEL AND CHRIS LOOK NOTHING AND I MEAN NOTHING A LIKE. YOU JUST RUNNIN YOUR MOUTH. GIRL SHUT UP.
December 23, 2008 at 1:56 pm
lmao!!!! riri was just killin performances at jingleball with chris breezy, everybody and they mama know they a couple, and beyonce jockin self just happens to come up with some light skin dude in her video that looks like an older version of chris brown? lmaooo.
and dont tell me to shut up i go to school if i didnt i wouldnt kno how to write
December 23, 2008 at 2:05 pm
ALSO i bet the damn beyonce stans gonna try to say this s*** is legendary, whats legendary is rihannas disturbia video and performances she took michael jacksons thriller with all the zombiez and darkness to another level AND thzat song destroyed charts all over the world. in the halo video this biatch is just lien around and pretending to dance. yawwwwnnn! and diva is disturbia in the hood.
December 23, 2008 at 2:15 pm
To all the people that said Beyonce is copying Aaliyah is Aaliyah the only person allowed to be underwater for a music video? Wow.
Cbsgurl you need help. medical, educational, I don’t know. But you need help.
December 23, 2008 at 2:42 pm
Okay I’m sorry but whoever said Rihanna’s Disturbia is legendary is clearly deluded. Re-read your ish. You just compared that mess to Thriller. Thriller.
And Rihanna has never killed a performance. I saw that heffa live and the only killing she did was butcher every single one of her tracks.
You Beyonce haters are on a whole new level. No other artist has his or her haters just waiting to jump on their new stuff so they can attempt to rubbish her and downplay all her efforts. All you people do is compare her to this, that and the next thing.
Beyonce is on top of her game.
December 23, 2008 at 3:50 pm
i love this video! it’s beautiful!
December 23, 2008 at 4:01 pm
Where Can I see the video plz?
December 23, 2008 at 5:56 pm
CRAZY HOW THESE VIDEOS WAS JUST RELEASED LESS THAN 24 HOURS AGO AND ALREADY IN THE TOP 10….LMAO!!! KEEP FEEDING THE FIRE HATERS!!!!!!
December 23, 2008 at 9:22 pm
Beyonce didnt steal s***. Is Aaliyah the ONLY one who knows how to jump into a tub of water and swim? i dont think so.R.I.P. to Aaliyah tho. Anyways, the video was good. It really captured the essence of the song. THe constant light flashin did get kinda annoying, but it worked. It really accentuated how a true,loving, successful relationship would look, and the words and how she lookd singing them really showed how a good relationship would feel.I support B.Buying the rights to a song does not make you a thief. it makes you the owner.Peace Ya’ll
December 24, 2008 at 12:01 am
December 24, 2008 at 2:32 am
B needs to ditch dat old, ugly muthafucka JayZ
LUV U BEY!!
December 24, 2008 at 3:01 am
Halo is a big song. I like the softness and simplicity of the Vid, which is rare for a Beyonce vid so i like the direction in that sense.
The meaning of the song is defined by the leading man being her rock, point of strength and source of inspiration so this is a vid 2me.
She's not copying nothing is jus something that has been done be4 in terms of the swimming theme any1 heard of "Sade" well she set the trend and loads of artist have done that kind of scene but it suits this vid and thats the main thing…
Happy Xmas & peeps find something better to comment on instead of who's copying who because a lot of artists and people in genreal copy or gain inspiration from some1 in some kind of way. It's not a life or death situation, just the entertainment & life industry!!! (Sorry for Lecture)
December 24, 2008 at 6:46 am
s*** ASS VIDEO.Sorry.Boring as hell.
I mean, when the puppy came in, I gagged.
December 24, 2008 at 8:39 am
its a nice vid but i just dont care for the song at all
ok this is lacking something umm “EFFORT” wtf i mean the songs not “Bad” but then at parts in the song she sounds like she on the end about to crack or forcing the words out but i love the actor Michael Ealy i still think he is fine even with out the light shining all over him but this looks like there wasnt much put into it this is what happens when u rush your videos u lack effort and time and you tend to get annoying just always being out there at least give it some time 2 videos at once one bond to be better then the other……..
December 24, 2008 at 10:13 am
Umm KIRA how you gonna say this video waas rushed. Its supposed to be a simple video. What do you want her to do? Have 10 pounds of makeup and walk down a catwalk. Thats why its BEYONCE not SASHA. Beyonce dont need to rush anything. And I dont even understand how a video can be rushed unless they do it in like an hour. All the lighting and simple movements take alot of takes to get right.
December 24, 2008 at 10:49 am
this video is BOR-INGdoesnt do this excellent song justice AT ALL
mariah sade madonna and a number of other peoplehave swam in their music videos as wellnot just aaliyah
i just wish the water scene and dance sequences were a little more developed…
December 24, 2008 at 10:54 am
why would jay-z be jealous? this is just ACTING.
i betchu beyonce waz thinking of jay when filming this…
December 24, 2008 at 2:35 pm
jay-z in my opinion is so damn ugly… not to mention he’s 40 yrs old
anyways, love this song… beyonce knows how to do it right
December 24, 2008 at 5:54 pm
Beautiful song with a simple video that actually fits the song. Love it
December 24, 2008 at 11:43 pm
SIGHHHHHH!!!!! @ ALL THE HATERS, lmao!…only B can get over 60 comments in a day on a blog, lol!….its the haters, im telling u its the haters that is making her continue to sell over 100,000 copies every week. VIDEO IS THE s***!…haters keep doing your job cuz without yall, none of us can do anything!
December 25, 2008 at 5:25 pm
Ummm….hated it! Very boring to say the least.
December 25, 2008 at 5:45 pm
If someone makes a comment that is not exactly favorable to the is woman it doesn’t mean they dislike her as a person/”artist”. Her work just doesn’t appeal to them. They don’t “hate” her literally. Some of you all treat her as though she is the at the right hand of the Almighty, she is perfect, sin free, and could do no wrong. Really people…it is not and never will be that serious. Some like her and some don’t. She is not worried about either. Trust
December 26, 2008 at 11:31 am
A dancing in the mirror scene? Beyonce really? These videos are HILARIOUS.
December 26, 2008 at 11:39 am
stinky breathe her lol
December 26, 2008 at 1:23 pm
Man, LOVE this song!!!!!!!!!!!
Great video Bey – u are the best out there!!
December 26, 2008 at 2:30 pm
I LOVE THIS CHICK AND SUPER LOVE THIS SONG. GO BEYONCE.
December 26, 2008 at 2:34 pm
Aaliyah Rihanna and Leona… NEXT!
December 26, 2008 at 3:56 pm
this video is so beautiful and simple and if beyonce copied aaliyah then aaliyah copied madonna and janet so stop HATIN! and jay-z should not get offended by this video because as you all know beyonce is very private when it comes to her personal life so u would neva see her do a video like dat wit jay-z in it and although they were close, she didnt kiss him or rub her bare body all over him unike somebody else I know….cough[usher]cough besides jay-z is lucky to even hav beyonce so he wuldn’t be stupid enough to leave her over somethin liike dis
December 26, 2008 at 4:22 pm
The video made me like the song more. And the acting between Bey and Michaelis very believable. Notice I said acting…Now, to all those crying “she copied so and so” I guarntee you if you look at musicians a generation or two before your favorite singer you will find similarities. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery.
December 26, 2008 at 4:50 pm
The video is perfect for the track…Dam B is really something….Def. a “Living Legend”
December 26, 2008 at 5:15 pm
Personally I still think she’s garbage this time around.
December 27, 2008 at 1:02 pm
yes ooo.. she truly IS a ‘living legend’damn, dis son is soooo good!!! LOVE DIS SONG!!
December 27, 2008 at 10:19 pm
love it…. one word … perfect
December 29, 2008 at 1:34 am
dis track here is fucken awesome
December 29, 2008 at 6:06 pm
i love this song.But what is the meaning though?
December 31, 2008 at 3:54 pm
I’m a huge Aaliyah fan and yeah when i saw the water scene it did remind me of rock the boat not the water but the way she was floating, with a dress and her hair but naaww it was different to me, Aaliyah peformed more in the water Beyonce just did a quick take.
You know I think Beyonce is a great actress in her music videos but in movies she sucks ass, i’m sorry but that’s my opinion, I’ve been her fan since the original DC and seen all her movies and damn she can’t act but in her video like this one and Ring the Alarm you got the vybe, anyway I ain’t to found of this song but they did have some chemistry maybe she should have done the video with her husband i assumed the song and Hello was about him.
Anyway I personally only really like 4 songs of the Sasha Fierce CD, If I Were A Boy, Single Ladies, Diva (that video sucks ass WTF kinda glasses and dance moves!!) and Hello so in my opinion the album was a waste of my money
January 8, 2009 at 2:39 am
I love Michael Ealy…love the song. I like most of Beyonce songs, however, homie can NOT act. Therefore, I conclude that she was feeling Ealy (as any woman with a pulse would). And Jay-Z know she can’t act too so he figured it had to be real too lol.
January 22, 2009 at 8:46 am
Ok haters, as said previously no one is originalso give the sister a break. There is nothing wrong with her doing a video or movie with another guy its her career, its all work. I am sure Jay-Z is secure and quite comfortable with that, so stop takin up their issues and make it yours.I love the video and song and i love beyonce to continue her good work.
