Beyonce To ‘Take A Break’ In 2010

Published: Tuesday 12th Jan 2010 by Trent

Despite hinting that she has already begun planning a new album, Beyonce has announced that she will be taking a break from the studio in 2010. The singer sat down with USA Today to discuss her plans to rest for at least 6 months in 2010. Here is an excerpt from the interview:

It’s definitely time to take a break, to recharge my batteries,” she tells USA Today. “I’d like to take about six months and not go into the studio. I need to just live life, to be inspired by things again.

I want to go to restaurants, maybe take a class, see some movies and Broadway shows.” She also plans to spend more time with her 5-year-old nephew, Daniel, son of her sister Solange. “He’s a wonderful kid, amazing, so smart. And I spoil him, so it’s a lot of work. He’s a 24-hour job.

It will be the hardest thing in the world for me to make myself not do an album and shoot a video and turn it in and say, ‘I’m ready!’” she confesses. “I already have all these melodies and ideas in my head. I have to tell myself, ‘Sit down! Sit down!’ {Source}

I sense that Beyonce has definitely made a wise decision. Her voice, name and face are everywhere ,and she is basically over-saturating her market. Taking time away would give her audience the opportunity to ‘miss’ her, thus building fresh interest. I can definitely think of a few other singers who should do the same (Mariah Carey, Rihanna).

However, don’t be fooled by her words. Beyonce is going to be featured in Lady GaGa’s upcoming ‘Telephone’ video, she is performing at the Grammy Awards later this month and she has a verse in Alicia Key’s new song ‘Put It In A Love Song’. Furthermore, having been able to create ‘B’Day’ in just two weeks, it’s more than likely that she could generate and release an entirely new project before the end of the year.

Thoughts?

  2. Imperfect Angel January 12, 2010

    i used to LOVE this chick when i was a kid and when she was in Destiny’s Child and i followed her music up until the B’Day era but after that i just felt she became fake and a sellout but IDK what it is about her but 4 some reason i can’t help but not to like her lol like idk what it is…she must be doing some witchcraft secretly somewheres lol because i dont understand it but i think that is SO cool she takes care of her nephew like that, wonder when she’s going to push out some kids of her own? I read somewhere that Jay-Z said he is ready for kids because he ain’t getting no younger and that Beyonce is the one holding back, i wonder why? And i don’t blame her because Lord knows who Jay-Z sleeping with behind closed doors…..RiRi where u at? 🙂

  3. Carl January 12, 2010

    THANK GOD!!! I WOUDL REALLY PREFER A NEW ALBUM NEXT YEAR THOUGH. I CAN’T BELIEVE HOW MANY ALBUMS ARE DROPPING THIS YEAR!!!!

  4. Imperfect Angel January 12, 2010

    LOL @ IMYOURSTAR702

  5. Tha Phoenix January 12, 2010

    i STAN for the Queen B like no one’s business, but this is good news. I’ve been saying for a year or so now that it’s best for her take a break – even just to relax. Think about it; she’s been in the spotlight practically none stop in some form or another since 03…

    And now, when she comes back, it’ll be like ‘The Queen IS BACK!!!’, rather than ‘Oh, yay, another B song…’

    We’ll have missed her, and she can come back even better than ever… though I’m not sure whether we’ll be ready for that!!!

    =)

  6. Imyourstar702 January 12, 2010

    ^^^ LOL…

    I had a typo error… it should of said * make it

  7. philly January 12, 2010

    yeah, and it sounded like it only took 2 weeks for beyonce to create b’day. that album overall was awful. she needs to go away. let people miss her. SOOOOO ANNOYING!

    stop it with the “whip-your-weave” music and create actual records

  8. trucie January 12, 2010

    LOL six months… I’d like to see that. Just wait till Kelly drops her album or Letoya starts getting some real recognition to see how quick Beyonce jumps into the studio. I used to be a die hard B fan but alot of my enthusiasm about this chick has faded. So has hers. This is not the same wide-eyed Beyonce we saw on the first album. I luved Sasha Fierce and it was her best album to date but she definitely lacked in videos section. I mean s*** the broad has the money but did nothing with and that def. took away from the project. Not to mention she didn’t drop neither Radio or Scared of Lonely but she released Diva and Video Phone (two of the dumbest f****** songs ever). Any who she should def take more than six months off and really cater to her craft. People knocking Rihanna but if you listen to the album, there is quality work in every track. The lyrics are f****** serious regardless if she didn’t write them. Alicia Keys’ album is amazing too. So Beyonce def needs to do some real soul searching and stay away from the pen and paper this time and let some real writers do the next album. I need to hear her sounding more adult rather than some crazed adolescent that just figured out that she has a v*****!

  9. jasmine January 12, 2010

    NNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! Plz Beyonce dnt take a break….Your the only talent star left…LoL….seriously

  10. beyoncestan January 12, 2010

    Lol @ telling herself to sit down she so beautiful and down to earth! I hate that Lady Gaga and Alicia are obviously riding on Beyonce’s name to sell records but what can you expect when she’s the queen of rnb…. imma need her to reject anyone else asking for collabo’s soon everyone and their mum will want one so they can get that number 1!

  11. Dave January 12, 2010

    YAY!

  12. grego January 12, 2010

    bout damn time buh thats ok she can do that shes the baddest in the game..

  13. Pinkpop January 12, 2010

    Gosh you haters really nedd to sit down. I’M a real stan (as you would call me) but I think it’s a goo idea to take some time out. Sasha Fierce really has shown some growth so I don’t get it when people say she has not stepped uo her game. And all this stuff bout Kelly Rowland and LaToya…it’s not Beyonces fault when those ladys don’t have any success. Don’t get me wrong, I love Kelly and bought her albums, but they just lack something, and that’s not because Beyonce ruled the charts… If all you haters would really start supporting those acts you blame Beyonce for their flop, maybe they’d get higher sales.

  14. HAHAHA January 12, 2010

    @BEYONCESTAN not trying to be rude but Beyonce approached Lady GaGa after the VMA’s for a collabo with Video Phone and she told MTV that she was hesitant because she’s so busy at the moment but she did it anyway and she also stated that Beyonce was humble and down-to-earth and that she would return the favor on her record “Telephone” and as far as Alicia Keys goes i heard that they were good friends before the collabo although it was speculated they hated each other when they went on tour in 2004….just thought that little tid bit of info might help 🙂

  15. wtf January 12, 2010

    so where is she disappearing to if her name will be all over??? i mean we harldy see paps pictures if her…she is not like rihanna who we see more pap pictures of than her real work so again beyonce where are you disappearing too??? yeo that is right no where…what you just mean is you will not be a blog regular but after six months you will be back..however so you dnt miss me much, i will be all over your tv like always…FAILLLLLL!!

  16. DAWON January 12, 2010

    @ WTF…YOU DONT SEE PAPS PICS OF BEYONCE ALL THE TIME CAUSE SHE’S A “REAL ARTIST” WHO IS INTO HER WORK AND PASSION FOR MUSIC. RIHANNA IS A CAMERA W**** WHO WALKS AROUND HALF NAKED ALL THE TIME TO GET PAPS TO TAKE HER PICTURE!

    I WANT BEYONCE TO TAKE A LITTLE BREAK…CAUSE THE QUEEN IS TIRED! I WANT HER TO TAKE 6 MONTHS OFF AND COME BACK AND KILL THE GAME ONCE AGAIN!!

    FUNNY HOW HATERS ON HERE SAY B’DAY WAS HORRIBLE YET IT WON HER A GRAMMY AND SOLD OVER 6 MILLION AND HAD GOOD REVIEWS…..BOOM!

  17. MATT January 12, 2010

    LOL at the beyonce stan who seems to think that people are using beyonce to get a hit record. im sorry but beyonce approached gaga about the video phone remix, and wanted to appear on gaga’s “telephone” now who’s doing to latching onto songs to get hit records. LOL.

  18. CoCo January 12, 2010

    lol This is not ok Bey. I need you… 🙁

  19. mya January 12, 2010

    @BEYONCESTAN since when did Alicia need Beyonce for a number 1 hit Alicia had number 1 hits on her own and her current album is about to be platinum and its only been out 3 weeks. Alicia is R&B artist of the decade. While i love Bee, Alicia out sold Beyonce as a solo artist and thats a fact. Alicia has had higher 1st week sales when did beyonce ever sell overf 700k first week. they are both talented and dont need eachother to sell .

  20. ms marie January 12, 2010

    I’m glad she’s taking a break, one of our last quality stars needs a quality rest then she’ll release another quality album that she should call Bangin Beyonce is Back B******!!!lol then we’ll see a platinum album lol

  21. вeяячℓiσuѕ вeα January 12, 2010

    its about time she is a need of a break

  22. whystillinbusiness January 12, 2010

    That’s nice to hear cause she sure deserves it, she showed what having talent will do for your career, every album she had out did great! and that’s with her changing up her style. Some one said she was fake maybe on a personal level in which I doubt, but on that creative level she is not… You see she was able to come with a different sound and succeed not like some others…. I watched BET last night and they did her I AM special and she is the hardest working woman of talent in the business. Just think if that other chick was able to do such she would be great but watching what Beyonce did, it would kill that other one!

  23. stan January 12, 2010

    hasn’t she said this a million times?

    i’ll believe it when i see it happening.

  24. shelly-chelle January 12, 2010

    as much as I ♥ beyonce i think she needs a break. she needs to be missed before people get tired of her.

  25. TRUTH January 12, 2010

    6 MOS??? TAKE 6YRS B****!!!!!!! RETIRE ALREADY. NOBODY CARES UR GONE ANYWAY. BOOTY SHAKERS ARE SOOO OVER ANYWAY.

  26. Anne January 12, 2010

    Beyonce is the best contemporary artist in the business right now in my opinion but I think it’s ok that she’s taking a little break, she deserves it. She’s left so much good material for us to enjoy while she breaks between the three albums and the two movie soundtracks and the live concert videos. I’m sure she’ll be back better than ever!

  27. Anne January 12, 2010

    By the way, the Alicia Keys song is a full duet (Beyonce has more than a verse). They are planning to shoot a video so there still more to look forward to before the break.

  28. Parisian girl January 12, 2010

    Thanx lord…

  29. MushyLove_1992 January 12, 2010

    If it makes Bey happy then I’m happy. She does need to take a break though. The women has been performing her ass off since 2008. Its not like her spot is going anywhere so she should chill. Even though I will miss her dominating…

  30. Music_Lover January 12, 2010

    It’s about time..but like someone mentioned earlier, what till’ kelly drops her album. It’s over..Beyonce is gonna come back super inspired…from what? IDK. But watch. She’s taking a break now, but she will come back sooner than what she says.

    I HOPE and pray that someone else get’s some shine..and what I mean by that is, the ppl who promote her, promote her right. People act like beyonce does these amazing things..she is just promoted really well..that’s all.

    Latoya Luckett on the other hand. I like her music, but she really needs to step it up some more.

    But bey, please take more than 6months off so we can atleast MISS your music..b/c your starting to get annoying.

  31. mya January 12, 2010

    you stans are too much lol I really wish you all would show some maturity and stop using the word HATER. Everyone is not hating on Beyonce as much as you all would like to think that, it is not always the case.Yes she is talented but be honest she has not shown any growth music wise her lyrics are corny as hell and she sounds like an adolescent. I will say that if she can not do anything else she can sing and perform her ass off which is the ONLY reason why I am still a fan. Till this day i rock the Dangerously in Love album the hardest which was a CLASSIC album the best that has put out. i think she needs a break give people enough time to miss her and then come back out with something blazing. And for the record since when has alicia keys and lady gaga needed Beyonce to have hit records lmao!!

  32. Anne January 12, 2010

    Those who are annoyed are only speaking for themselves. I don’t see what is annoying about a talented lady who can actually sing and dance and has a lot of good songs. She waited while Kelly dropped her first solo album after DC broke up. But, I don’t know why people expect her to allow Kelly or Latoya to dictate her career, neither one of them have been serious threats or competition. As for the B-day comment, that’s my favorite album by her. I like the vocal performances and the female empowerment theme of most of the songs on that album (read the lyrics) like “Green Light” & “Upgrade U”, and “Irreplaceable” from B-day is my favorite Beyonce song (to name a few). Anyway, this is not the first time Beyonce has taken a break and I’m sure won’t be the last. The breaks fly by so those who are annoyed for whatever reason may as well get ready to be annoyed again. For the millions of fans who support her and look forward to her work, I’m sure she’ll be back and recharged very soon.

  33. Pinkpop January 12, 2010

    Don’t think Alicia out-sold Beyonce… And I’m a fan of Alicia as well, got all her albums.

  34. E January 12, 2010

    Bs taking a break?! sounds like DC are reuniting.. would be really good tho.. business wise, but more important personal and health wise! tell Keri come now & sing that verse again.. 😛

  35. Barbie January 12, 2010

    AWWWW BEYONCE IS THE BEST IN THE GAME! WE NEED HER ! BUT WHATEVER MAKES BEY HAPPY IM HAPPY AND WE SHE COMES BACK YOU KNOW IT’S OVA RITE FOR EVERY CHICK IN THE GAME. SO LADIES YOU BETTER COUNT DOWN NOW!

  36. Barbie January 12, 2010

    I THINK BEYONCE’S NEXT ALBUM WILLL COME OUT WHEN SHE’S 29 THIS FALL AROUND THAT TIME

  37. B. Mike January 12, 2010

    Good. Sit yo ass down. Love you B. But sit yo ass down.

  38. Joe January 12, 2010

    THE QUEEN NEEDS TO RE CHARGE HER BATTERIES?????????? LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD ONE BEY!!! NOW IF KELLY COME OUT AND SHE FLOPS WILL IT STILL BE BEYONCE’S AND MATTHEWS FAULT QUESTION????????????????

  39. Music_Lover January 12, 2010

    @Anne, If people are annoyed with someone then obviously it’s b/c they see them too much. Do we not have a right to say what we feel? If beyonce didn’t think she was too much then she wouldn’t be taking a break, but obviously she does. She is taking time off from something right? People have a right to feel what they wanna feel. When artists take a break and come back, we can say “good, she’s been laying low for a minute, etc.” but when they release album after album..eventually you will get tired of them. She’s doing the right thing, because she was starting to get ANNOYING!!!

  40. Rihanna Flop January 12, 2010

    do what’s best for you hun
    a much deserved break if you ask me love ya

  41. RANDOM January 12, 2010

    six months um a baby takes nine months(somebody should have told jay this)poor fella.

    what is this s*** she’ talking about sit down sit down bey we know it’s not in your nature to sit down i dont want you to sit down keep going full blast till you fade.

    whatever you do dont sit down wear your ass out there has NEVER been a time when she hasn’t been on the radio(including dc era) if she stops now we will go through withdrawal she reminds me of britney(i said this already)keep going bey and dont have kids either just keep going and going and going really no need to stop and have a family or anything(somebody should have told this to the 40 yr old man she married).

  42. jas January 12, 2010

    WE WANT KELLY ROWLAND DUUUUHHHHH!!!

  43. January 12, 2010

    YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    b is a talented woman and i respect her hustle, but damn, get out of our faces for a minute and let us miss you.

    i’m a MC stan like nobody’s business, but i agree that she needs to sit down for a little bit, regroup, and have a grand “re-entrance” onto the scene.

  44. RANDOM January 12, 2010

    This how it went with gaga another r&b chick wanted to colab with her but bey jumped over her head and did it.if you cant beat(gaga) them join them(gaga)seriously what does rihanna have to do.

  45. Jeremy January 12, 2010

    i just notice sumthing the music scene is giong 2 be boring with without beyonce of course we still got alicia keys, fanatsia, keri hilson, and rihanna but beyonce gives performs better than any female artist and the bst part about it she can dance and sing gud without whispering like nicki manji said step yo cookies u lames trying 2 c** out in 2010 besides alicia keys fanatsia keri hilson and rihanna

  46. Jeremy January 12, 2010

    yeah im not gone lie if she take aye break for aye year people gone be missing her like crazy and they really wont be paying attention 2 anybody foreal just lady gaga rihanna and alicia keys

  47. S*** January 12, 2010

    Trent: “However, don’t be fooled by her words. Beyonce is going to be featured in Lady GaGa’s upcoming ‘Telephone’ video, she is performing at the Grammy Awards later this month and she has a verse in Alicia Key’s new song ‘Put It In A Love Song’. Furthermore, having been able to create ‘B’Day’ in just two weeks, it’s more than likely that she could generate and release an entirely new project before the end of the year.”
    —-

    So True, If Not this year, Haters please embrace yourself for Next Year, Bey season will began again.- I just Love Beyonce, shes so talented, If we gave her a score for every attribute a Artist could possibly have (music, voice, performances, movies, fasion, money, success, Talent ect) She would have the highest Score, one even higher than MJ’s & (Insert your Favs).

  48. S*** January 12, 2010

    Beyonce = Elite International Icon soon to be legend!! ~MAD??

    Her Greatest hits Album is gonna be the best Album Ever!!

  49. S*** January 12, 2010

    @ Philley

    b’day took 2 Weeks to make but another 2 wks to perfect & master & put in the finishing touches & pick the best 10 songs. That Album was really good, It was really Fun, Creative & Fresh for it to have taken only 1 month. I wonder if thats a Record??

  50. ALLNIGHTDONTSTOP2010 January 12, 2010

    Its no doubt in my mind that this woman is one of the hardest workin females in entertainment but I think right now she seriously needs a break spend some time with her hubby enjoy the money she banks in and record her next record next year. Give the public some time to miss her. I Am Sasha Fierce is not her best record honestly in my opinion Im not hating just saying 🙂 She should jusy chill for awhile.

  51. RANDOM January 12, 2010

    not embrace it’s BRACE bright star.

    as for bracing ourselves if you have a remote just hit mute beyonce is on every three minutes just like adds.

    ”sweet dreams or a beautiful nightmare blal blah blah” yup i know the words and i’ve never bought an album and really dont have to.

  52. SEAN2009 January 12, 2010

    WELL SHE DID SAY 6 MONTHS. SO I EXPECT THE QUEEN BEYONCE TO COMEBACK AT THE END OF THE YEAR. SO TILL THEN. MY OTHER MAIN IDOL/GIRL JANET JACKSON WILL HOLD ME OVER.

  53. Dan January 12, 2010

    THERE IS A GOD!! I am so SICK of this overbloated ego!

  54. Anne January 12, 2010

    MUSIC_LOVER, Of course you have a right to your opinion and to voice it that’s why I said those who feel that way are speaking for themselves. I also have a right to my opinion and I only said that I PERSONALLY don’t see what there is to be annoyed by. That’s my opinion and you have yours. I’m always seeing and hearing all sorts of singer &celebs and many of the same ones over and over but I’m not annoyed by anyone because that’s what a remote is for. I watch and listen to what I choose. And I work and have my own life so I can’t see myself allowing any celebrity to annoy me.

  55. Music_Lover January 12, 2010

    @Anne. Ok. When your annoyed, u use your remote to turn the channel right? lol. If we are able to hear eachother’s attitude, they you would see that I am not getting smart with you at all. Im sorry if you took it that way. It’s just an honest debate, that’s all. You do have a point. Some people get to the point where they are so annoyed with celebs that they hate them. With me, it’s not that serious. Alot more artists should get just as much shine as Beyonce, but with the media constantly cramming her and many others down our throats, it starts to be annoying…But like I said, I see and respect your opinion.

  56. Anne January 12, 2010

    MUSIC_LOVER, I never said I was annoyed when I use my remote. I’m just not interested in some things so I change the channel. If I were forced to watch it then I guess I might become annoyed but thank God I have alternatives. I never felt you were getting smart with me and I also respect your opinion

  57. Ben January 12, 2010

    Yes, do that Bey. Other women want some time on the radio as well. However, she will probably still put something out by November 2010. But at least after the Grammys we will have about 8 months to breathe.

  58. anonymouss January 12, 2010

    finally!!!!!!!!!
    even beyonce thinks she needs 2 sit her ass down!

    i agree wit trucie, those 2 tracks sucked, she shudda def released radio instead. 😛

  59. Dilla January 12, 2010

    Beyonce taking a break….. I don’t think so. I’ll believe it when I see it,

  60. NIQUE January 13, 2010

    Who/what will I listen to for the next 6 months??? Nevermind, that’s selfish. I want Bey to do whatever she feels she needs to do. Breathe. Pray. Eat. Live. Have Jay’s big headed ass baby. LOL. Then come back and slay these b******. Show them who the queen is and why that Beyonce reign just won’t let up. LMAO.

  61. Lindsay January 16, 2010

    ok

  62. Lindsay January 16, 2010

    Beyonce is a selfish bicth…there i said it. Non-talented ass clown…GO AWAY FOREVER. Go be white or hispanic or something!
