Clint Eastwood: “Beyonce Could Be The Next Ella Fitzgerald”

Published: Monday 16th Jan 2012 by Sam

With Beyonce having given birth, it’s back to work for the bodacious star. And first on the agenda is her aptly titled new movie ‘A Star Is Born’.

Initially set for shooting last year, production on the Clint Eastwood directed clip was delayed to accomodate the singer’s pregnancy. However, all systems are now go and filming is set to commence this Summer.

During a recent interview, 81 year old Eastwood lifted on Beyonce’s musical contributions to the movie, which tells the tale  of promising starlet and the fall of the fading talent who discovers and helps her reach her goal.

Find out what he had to say after the jump…

Via Les Inrocks magazine (French):

Did you discuss music with Beyonce, that we will see in your next film, a remake of A Star is Born?

She asked if she could write stuff for the movie, I said yes, great. But I also told her I would make one or two things very classical. Still classicism. But I don’t want Beyoncé to be too classic! She has a superb voice. She could become a new Sarah Vaughan or the next Ella Fitzgerald. She has the same class. I dont know if she knows their music, but I intend to do a good education for the movie!

———————————

Bey’s past acting gigs may leave many feeling Eastwood’s age is finally catching up with him. However, it’d be unfair to look over the brilliance that was her interpretation of Etta James in the critically acclaimed ‘Cadillac Records’. An interpretation which doesn’t make his comments as far-fetched as they may seem.

Ella presented a compelling package, in that she was both musically gifted and a natural actress. And though the latter can’t be said for Ms. Knowles, she’s clearly been putting in overtime to ensure she comes close. A hustle which looks to be paying off.

As for the music, the prospect of a Jazz-ed up Beyonce excites us immensely. I mean, her voice is that good, she could sing a cuss word and make it sound hot. However, the quality, texture, and tone of her vocal really stand to shine in an arena such as the Jazz-y one Eastwood talks of.

‘A Star Is Born’ is slated for a 2013 release.

    SO, THE ORIGINAL “A STAR IS BORN” WITH JANET GANOR WAS MORE OF A TRADITIONAL POP TAKE OF THE STORY.

    JUDY GARLANDS’ (THE BEST VERSION OF THEM ALL) WAS MORE OF A “BROADWAY” TAKE.

    BARBRA STREISAND’S VERSION WAS MORE OF A “ROCK & ROLL” TAKE.

    AND NOW,BEYONCE’S VERSION WILL BE MORE OF A “JAZZ” TAKE.

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! I AM HERE FOR THIS…

    O M G – I HOPE SHE DOES WELL, AND EVEN THOUGH I DOUBT HER VERSION WILL EVER BEAT THE MAGNIFICENCE THAT WAS JUDY GARLAND, SHE MIGHT FINALLY WIN AN OSCAR FOR THIS ROLE!!!

    #THE KING WILL SLAY

  3. MISERY!!! January 16, 2012

    I LOVE YOU BEYONCE – BUT YOUR VOICE AND ELLA FITZEGERALD VOICE ARE TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF SINGING!!!

    CAN BEYONCE SCAT SING???

  4. Minajesty January 16, 2012

  5. Papa Joe January 16, 2012

    YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

  7. Theman January 16, 2012

    He is clearly out of his league if he thinks that she is anywhere near Sarah or Ella. Beyonce’s tone ain’t even close. Beyonce is a skilled singer with a basic voice. They both have very classical/polished tones. She doesn’t. For the most part that ain’t something that could be taught either. He picked her perhaps because she could bring in the dough. Acting just doesn’t come natural to Beyonce. It’s great that she works so hard on perfecting it. But it simply isn’t her forte.

  8. Theman January 16, 2012

    This site kisses Beyonce a** so much it ain’t even funny. Y’all only do it for hits. I hope the crazy stans smarten up and stop going back and forth because i think Sam is using Beyonce to further his agenda. Every post he does with Beyonce he tries to grossly over exaggerate it for more hits. It’s become pathetic. It’s about quality over quantity. Anika Noni Rose would have been perfect for this role. Excuse the spelling of her name. He’ s saying all of this but the real thing is as i said she can probably bring in the bucks which is the biggest factor.

  9. Playonyall January 16, 2012

    People, I love Beyonce’s voice but FACT: SHE hired Clint Eastwood to Direct this film…She is an executive producer, look up what that means….and stans don’t get too excited at the prospect of her winning an Oscar…someone above even said she may finally win an Oscar??? Finally…???

  10. Theman January 16, 2012

    ISN’T THIS HIS MOVIE? HOW DID SHE HIRE HIM? I THOUGHT THAT IT WAS THE OTHER WAY AROUND…..

  11. Bey’knight January 16, 2012

    I cant wait to see her on the silver screen again. She gets better with every turnout. Her performance in cardillac records was underrated. I think that has to do with the size of that role in the film. I know Etta was/still is a foul mouthed one lol. I dint want my cutesy Bey cussing so much but she pulled it off.

    Dead at people tryna discredit Clint. U know what if u cnt respect Clint’s integrity then u have nk business criticising Beyonce’s acting abilities cus it shows u know nada about the film industry.

    Hope he really drills her and brings the best outta her. If Madonna, a mediocre actress could pull off Evita, then there’s an actress in Beyonce as well waiting to burst out. We’ve seen glimpses in dreamgirls and cardillac records.

  12. Perry Power January 16, 2012

    Beyonce is not the best actress in the world, but she’s certainly not the worse. Her role as Etta James in Cadillac Records was fantastic. Im excited for the new movie!!

  13. JohnVidal January 16, 2012

    @Theman
    We could say sometimes producers own the film with the scripy written already and all and they are the ones that search for the director then(like hire a director). I don´t know about this particular case though

  14. Bey’knight January 16, 2012

    @theman

    Stop tryna speak for the man. He’s neither senile nor stroke-streaken. If u dont think she deserved the role, thats ur opinion. Clint is a director not an hollywood studio exec. Box office is not a director’s biggest priority in filmmaking. I dont get how its people who’ve never met Beyonce that think they know her most, her potentials did u even watch her movies .. People cant just live n let live. U’ve about half d comments on this post already. Making your point once was not enough for u. If Sam is doin ish then ur flockin to the altar like sheep.

  15. JohnVidal January 16, 2012

    Credit to Beyonce for working so hard but I agree with many comments on her: she is not a natural actress, she´s not naturally good at it. She wants to push it. I also agree about the tone of her voice, not great, that´s why I´ll always say she is not among the greats at all. She lacks that and it´s not a thing she can change not even with all the hard work I know she is capable of

  16. Mabs January 16, 2012

    She might not be the best actress but she is trying. People here are so quick to shut anything she does down… Give credit where its due, and some of you need to check out the I Am Yours dvd, where she was scatting and did some ella on dejavu.. She can pull this off, and im excited that the movie has a jazz-y direction.

  17. Bey Fan… January 16, 2012

    Bey is no Ella….but y’all not gon act like my Bey has no talent…..

    And yall shole aint about to discredit Clint…. that dude is one of da best.

    Anywho, can’t wait to see this. Im excited for Bey.

  18. Mabs January 16, 2012

    and @Johnvidal, i think you like beyonce but you are too hard on her at times, its like you’re expecting more then she’s giving you.. Its ok, to like an artist without trying to find flaws or critiquing them all the time dang!!

  19. Royalkev January 16, 2012

    @ Bey’Knight
    It is quite humorous to see so much skepticism from so many that MUST be more insightful that Clint Eastwood, himself. Why take his word, he’s only a legend in film.

    I totally agree with you Bey was a knockout in ‘Cadillac Records’. I even admired her understated performance in “Dream Girls”. I personally enjoyed her performance best (along with Eddie’s and Anika’s) because Beyonce capture the true essence of Diana in her supreme days. The gesturing and her over demeanor was spot on in some scenes. I don’t think critics were willing to give her the praise she deserved back then. Still, Bey loves to push her boundaries to ensure that she does her finest work . I don’t think it’s far -fetched for Bey to be in the same league as Ella. Her ambition can take her there. She’s a great example of someone who reaches for the stars and conclusively obtain far beyond what is expected of her.

    Beyonce is not an actress never mind a decent one. Why do you think she only gets musicals as acting jobs. No one in Hollywood has given her a good movie role since she started out. This is like her 4th musical. As for the movie Clint has to perform a miracle as this movie is iconic and will be compared to previous one.

  21. SLAYFANISTANN. January 16, 2012

    Beyonce’s not the best actor but she’ll probably do well ESPECIALLY if there’s angry parts.Beyonce knows how to do the angry role.

    I really want to see how B does with jazz.I’m sure she’ll ace it,.(She proved herself with Soul/Blues)

    SN-I really think Slayfani (Gaga) should do a jazz role too…Her voice is PERFECT for it.

  22. Mabs January 16, 2012

    Missimpartial can you zip it just this once. You always bitching about beyonce, yet you’re name is impartial.. Go focus and love rihanna, im sure she could use your ‘crique’ and support for battleship….. @royalkev… Everything you said.

  23. MissImpartial January 16, 2012

    @MABS
    Truth hurts. As for always criticising her I sometime do compliment her. Anyways it is none of your business who I criticise or not do not need your permission!!!

  30. kitkitkitty January 16, 2012

    I CANT WAIT FOR THE MOVIE

  31. jill January 16, 2012

    Beyonce is definitely not the worst actress/actor out there white or black!! Meagan Good, Lisa Raye, Channing Tatum, Mariah Carey, Madonna, alot of “known” ones are horrible…So Clint knows what he is doing, he will make Bey “bring” it. She suppose to start filming soon, I know at the end of the year a tour suppose to start…. New album next year.

    Clint Eastwood is a respectable director and actor…just because you don’t like Beyonce, you can’t question his decisions. He’s not looking for a block buster because he can definitely get that with another popular actress…. Madonna is a horrible actress BUT she played the heck out of Evita.

    I’m glad beyonce is transitioning into more “adult” things her voice is amazing. Im not even a major fan of Beyonce but I do know talent. I’m tired of people bashing other artists.

    I’m starting to like Rihanna also, she has really grown on me……You’re allowed to like more then one artist you know that right?

  32. kitkitkitty January 16, 2012

    YES YOU CAN LIKE RIHANNA BUT PLS DONT COMPARE HER TO BEYONCE, COMPARE RIHANNA TO CIARA AND KERI HILSON AND MAYBE THE LESS FAMOUS DISNEY KIDS

  33. Bey’knight January 16, 2012

    @Royalkev

    I concurr completely. The worst part is that their taking the statement and running with it. Bey herself has mentioned Ella as an influence but that doesnt mean she sounds like Ella. Ella has her distinct sound as does Beyonce. Clint’s comparison waa in terms of strinkin adequate balance between musical and cinematic performances. She has more than enough time to hone her acting skills even further. Its not gon be easy cus folks wont wan give her credit off the bat. I justvwant her to give her all to this role. The stakes are high due to the existing versions but ive faith in her and so does Clint. 🙂

    And for anyone to say Beyonce’s voice is basic, thats pure ignorance. She’s one of the most versatile vocalists out there and by versatile i dont mean smearing the same vocal styling over any given beat like rihanna. She gets into it like its her last chance but then again majority are only aware of the portion of her music thats played on the radio. Her octave range is over 3. If her voice is basic then anybody shd be able to sing her songs. Tv has shown that not to be d case

    Little mix version of IIWAB gave me a nightmare lol

  42. Theman January 16, 2012

    Beyonce stans are so predictable,bias and clueless it’s ashame. Does he see talent or does he see a dollar sign in this case. There are far more skilled actresses out there than her. They don’t have to prepare because they naturally have what she is so desperately seeking. Furthermore, i ain’t speaking for no one. You shut up and stop trying to play Beyonce’s spokesperson because you aren’t. How bout that. Clint is a director this we know. Whats new? But he has alot of pull in Hollywood. As far as watching her movies go i’ve seen a few and they were basically something that an extra could pull of. (Sorta Forced)… Lastly, i had about two or three comments. I was raising diferent points. Why are you so bothered? Sit your a** down… But back to Sam that was merely just a general statement, not something that i addressed to you. Speak when spoken to. Understood???……. Thats your problem you always running around in something that ain’t got nothing to do with you.

  43. julissa January 16, 2012

    Clint Eastwood joins the likes of Michael Jackson, Prince, Tina Turner, Patti Labelle, Babyface, Michelle Obama & president, Bono, Chris Brown, Florence and the machine, Diane Warren, Paul McCartney, Ok Go, Royce Da 5’9, Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, Stevie Nicks, lists goes on…All of them can’t be delusional right? How can you influence some rock groups when you’re a R&B/pop artist? They all said she’s an Icon in the making. And to be honest she is.

    Everyone one KNOWS that she’s a perfectionist and she’s a hard-worker. She doesn’t leave practice until 4/5 in the morning. She leaves when everything is right.

    If you don’t like her that’s fine BUT don’t discredit the woman.

    She has improved some what as an actress, but getting a top notch director doesn’t always guarantee anything. Well wishes to her though. Acting to me has to be believable, and she reminds me of Tyra Banks when it comes to acting.

    • Buck Green May 27, 2012

      Thank you. I agree. Beyonce kicks ass and she only has to walk on a stage to do it. People have been disparaging her for doing film musicals on this site–saying that this shows she has no range. Obviously, they forgot that Liza Minelli won an Oscar for “Cabaret” as did James Cagney for “Yankee Doodle Dandy”, and Barbra Streisand for “Funny Girl”. Even Marlon Brando did a musical (“Guys And Dolls”). Nicole Kidman was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for “Moulin Rouge.” “West Side Story” and “An American In Paris” and probably “Singin’ In the Rain” won Best Picture. Its time to stop disparaging musicals and Ms. Beyonce.

  52. kitkitkitty January 16, 2012

    @TheMan

    i believe in beyonce’s talent

  53. kitkitkitty January 16, 2012

    @TheMan

    just because they came out decades before beyonce and they inspired beyonce does not mean she isnt more talented. have you seesn beyonce perform? i doubt if you even know the beyonce i’m talking about cuz if you do u will bow for her talent and beauty

    Y’ALL WOULD HAVE BEEN LIKE SHE’S THE BEST

    JUST BECAUSE SHE IS FROM TODAYS GENERATION DOES NOT MAKE HER LESS TALENTED

  60. kimberly January 16, 2012

    Beyonce was choosen to represent our generation of talent in the iconic movie and there is no better person to do that. to say beyonce has a basic voice says alot about you on this post. Beyonce changes her production and vocal ranges in every performance. she can do it impromptu on stage. she is one of the most versatile voices in business. she sings on some of the roughest edgest tracks out there. she has sung jazz at her vegas concert and nailed it. some of yall are so damn it is not funny. You can try to discreet Beyonce but the answer to your question is answered. she may not be the next ella but she is beyonce and she is the new legend in the building b******. deal with it. see how critiques fall over cadallac, well it just gets better. beyonce ooozes talent. on stage is another chapter, no one exudes stage presence like her. she pushes boundaries an dbelieve me the star is born will be the s***.

    nb… i wish she would use blue ivy in the film but anyway haters, your favorite could never be considered a post nontherless chosen to be in 9 films in one decade. lets talk about royalties??????

    stay tuned

  61. KAT DELUNA FAN January 16, 2012

    The movie will flop like many things Clint is apart of ..hell even beyonce

    Best of luck to the them tho

  62. kimberly January 16, 2012

    Beyonce is the best and i have watched all these movies and all these concerts from the past and too bad beyonce surpasses that. not becasue she came form the 2000’s means that she is less. ask yourself one question. why did clintwood choose her??????????????????????????????????????????????

    Rihanna fans has such low standards they have the guts to say beyonce is basic.
    well lets see b******.

  63. Jay Scorpio January 16, 2012

    AND SHE WONDERS WHY NO ONE TAKES HER SERIOUS AS AN ACTRESS… WHEN WILL SHE START ACTING AND STOP COPPING OUT WITH THESE SINGING ROLES??!!!

  65. Lisa January 16, 2012

    Beyonce cannot act.She was horrible in the movie”Obsessed”

  66. Onyx January 16, 2012

    Judy Garland is actually the top Queen of the Gay Community, her song “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” is a anthem to them, Beyonce could do good for her not so impressed Vocals (Citation Needed) but she can’t do anything as an Actress to me, she’s a musician, actually not even Madonna is a good Actress, for some musicians is really hard to make it on the big screen, i will say that Frank Sinatra is one of the few that make it, however is still possible to have a career in Hollywood, look at J.Lo’s she is not the best singer, she is not the best Actress but she make her mark, i think Beyonce could do the same.

  67. Maria January 16, 2012

    How many times is Beyonce going to play a singer in a movie.She have no range.

  68. Theman January 16, 2012

    Again Bey stans stay in FairytaleLand. It’s not about them coming out before her. Her voice just doesn’t have the same quality/tone that theirs have. Whats so hard to understand. There are far more actresses/singers that could have done this role justice. I’m not saying Beyonce’s gonna be terrible though.

  69. Onyx January 16, 2012

    By the way i respect Clint Eastwood, i love his films but i don’t think Beyonce could be Ella Fitzgerald, she could be more famous than her but let’s not. Ella songs makes you feel in heaven, she was the favorite singer of Marilyn Monroe, listen to “Bewitched bothered and bewildered”, she was unique.

    • Patrick August 31, 2013

      I’m not sure if Beyonce is more famous than Ella Fitzgerald. After all, Ella has been dead for 17 years and people are still talking about her. Remember that Ella was a national spokesperson (print, television) for Memorex cassette tapes in 1972, the first Black Female ever to be featured in speaking, national campaigns. “Is it live or is it Memorex” became one of the most famous ad campaigns of all time, thanks to Ella. Also, Ella didn’t live during the era of everyone knows everything about anyone famous. She never became a “Nostalgia Act”, her awards are legion, and her recordings, along with Frank Sinatra created “American Popular Song” as we know it. I have read that she has realistically actually sold over 500 million recordings, and that was years ago. The 40 million used is a figure from NARAS in 1969. In Manhattan Tower Records in 1996 she had six entire bins of CD’s for sale. Not six rows, six bins. She still sells and her art endures. Beyonce is talented, but she is not and never will be an Ella Fitzgerald. Ella was playing arenas into her 70’s. The album released for her 75th Birthday charted on the Jazz charts, of course, but also on the Pop charts spending well over a year in the Top 100. She was the best and Internationally perhaps more famous than Frank Sinatra. Certainly the most universally admired singer of all time.

  70. kitkitkitty January 16, 2012

    @ONYX

    so ella was the fave singer of marilyn monroe if marilyn monroe was alive today beyonce would have been her fave singer

  71. june January 16, 2012

    It doesn’t matter how many of you hate or say she has NO range? lol that’s really funny. Many of the best singers in the world say she’s one of the best vocalist…….Singing with Josh Groban, Celine, etc. your fav wishes….

    Clint Eastwood don’t get a flying f*** if you’ll watch his movie or not!!! BUT i’m pretty sure as soon as that movie come out you people will flock to go see it.

    I remember when MJ was alive people bashed him and talked badly about him on blogs…. But as many haters as it is there is millions of people that love Beyonce.

    Love to hate her don’t you?

  72. really? January 16, 2012

    @MARIA

    SHE HAS NO RANGE? Are you f****** serious?
    You must be tone deaf…i’m not a fan by any means but beyonce can sang circles around any females out today………

    @theman

    Mr u can compare her voice to every diva that ever lived till the apocalypse comes thats your business really. Beyonce’s voice is great on its own. She cant do some of the things they can do technically and they cant ride on all the beats Beyonce does. You’re not a trained singer. Those legends that ive worn the shoe have all acknowledged her talent and thats legacy right there. She has nothing to prove to u or any other Closeminded wingers ou there.

    There is no coroboration for sayin he picked her cus of her box-office appeal. Its jus something u’ve to tell yourself to help u sleep at night. A premilinary film-making student can tell u that its the studio execs that worry about profit not the director! Esp Clint Eastwood who has a reputation to protect. Hes 81! Past average retirement age, he doesnt have to work a day in his life again

    Noone said he chose Beyonce cuz she’s the best actress around. This film is pop culture! He was explicit in sayin Beyonce was deemed appropriate because she represents this generation of talent. Period

    Generalising Beyonce fans is nothing but a red herring in the contact of this post. U dont go bashing a celebrated personality on a public forum without expecting a countereffect. We’ve seen u display similar manners when Mariah Carey is concerned. The only difference is many from this generation are sorta indifferent to MC so your claws stay retracted most of the time.

    Good day sir!

    “She asked if she could write stuff for the movie”

    ^^^You see the b**** is already asking if she can steal someone else’s lyrics, claim them as her own, and insert them into the film?! The audacity of this b****! Poor Clint doesn’t have a clue what he’s gotten himself into.

    You might call it “bitching” I called having an opinion. So move on.

    Beyonce cannot act. Has anyone seen obsessed where she.sounded like an underground railroad slave? How about Dreamgirls? Beyonce just doesn’t have the acting.bug. an example of a great actress is Mettle Streep. She is able to become a character. Beyonce just plays characters. In regards to her voice, Beyonce.has great technique however she doesn’t have a voice.for jazz. I saw her imitate Ella on the I Am dvd.and.it was ok at best.

  83. JohnVidal January 16, 2012

    I like that this post didn´t get too messy. But I need to say it sorry: yes Beyonce it´s great but can their stans stop it??? They are crazy everytime any big artist praises her! Damm we could pick every single relevant artist and we´ll finds compliments to them everywhere. It´ not that big deal, she´s not the only one to receive compliments. the problem is you all live with your heads inside her p****. Hell it seems in fact you gave birth to her baby girl. Stop it, it makes you seem like stalkers. Most comments here were really nice, only that stated some truths, the tone of her voice is not like the true greats ones (but she has big range and tecnical skills), no matter how much she works on it, she can´t have THAT voice. And also, about acting, what most people said on here it´s only that is not a good actress by nature. nothing else, i´m sure that knowing how hard working she is, she can do a nice job, but don´t try to make her seem that excellence at every single thing cos she is far from it. Have a nice day everybody 🙂

    actually no u cant! wanna put that theory to test? can u post 10 receipts of icons that lil harlot rihanna on artistic merit? no, ok how about katy perry? hell not even her contemporaries Jlo, britney and the likes that emerged around same her time. im talking co-sign from a revered person, doesnt include a asskissing like rihaha’s vocal coach telling us watchamacallit about her vocals.

  86. WHUT January 16, 2012

    @Girlllllll she is a disaster indeed . LOL!! You would think in musicals she’d stand a chance but NOPE she even loses horribly there too. Acting isn’t for all and especially not for her. Kiiiiiiiiii.

    She’s trying so hard to be this triple threat when she’s barely alive and one front as it stands. Its quite embarrassing watching ha stink up the screen movie after movie but the chronic narcissist that she is won’t ever allow her to accept that she sucks major acting balls.#no shade.

    Maybe after she looks a ripe fool again in this one she’ll get the message. It’s just too bad for poor little Blue Ivy that mammy is off somewhere looking a clown ass fool AGAIN in a movie #noshade and she’s in the arms of some nanny. 🙁 Poor child.

  87. julissa January 16, 2012

    Beyonce star power is about to explode, after this year NO ONE I Mean NO ONE will compare to Beyonce in this Generation. Just like Patti Labelle stated ” Beyonce is a mixture, she’s OLD school and NEW school…..

    Beyonce commands the stage, NO ONE can touch her… She’s in a league of her own……. after this movie, her tour starts.

    she can sing pop, R&B, rock, whatever….She got it in the bag…….

    Beyonce can’t be stopped, just like no one could stop MJ.

    Beyonce said it best “No Passengers on My Plane”

    Haters stay tuned………

    “THIS movie had sooooooooo much potential, but i hate to say it but Beyonce really ruined this movie for me.”

    “This movie sucked! I had to give it to Idris for his part. When you can predict a movie from the beginning, that movie is done. It did not even had a twist to the plot. This movie should have gone straight to DVD. It wouldn’t had been no. 1 if there were some real movie coming out that weekend. It seems like they know when to play something out. Stop making films and sing b/c you are not even good.”

    “Beyonce is an acting asshole that NEEDS to be stopped!”

    “Beyonce can not act her way out of a paper bag to save her life!!!!! Weak plot with bad acting. Atleast, Idirs and Ali tried to resurrect the movie but, to no avail. Ali rocked in the movie; good job. However, Beyonce dragged the movie through the gutters. I don’t recall seeing any A-list actors at the premier!!!!! I should have taken that as a sign to stay home.”

    “One of the worst movies ever made. I wish I could give this rotten pile of excrement a negative 1000000000 as a score. This movie is pure filth and the people responsible should be punished.”

    @Bey’knight :

    Your DRAGGING game is fierce.

    But your LIL gravatar is Too Cute for all that. one of my fav beyonce pics 😉

    @John :

    just don’t be mad. You are not a beyonce stan , you won’t understand what we do. of course we are happy that someone like “CE” praised her. why we won’t ?!

    what do u exactly want Us BEYONCE STANS do IN a BEYonce Post ?! 😯

    it is not surprising that her stans ” me included” are happy with that. and for sure CE knows what he is talking about. 😉

    Please , i like U , but don’t show me the signs and symptoms of a Bitter pressed Man 😉 , it won’t look cute on your face. leave it to ELTON JOHN 😆

    oh and Beyonce is excellent in 3/4 of the things she is doing. cuz she love what she do.
    and no one said she has the greatest voice of all time , but she is making the best she could with what she’s having ;). others don’t !
    that’s why she’s respected that much in the industry. she’s making the best of what she’s having despite not having a whole big ” vocals” as the likes of christina for example !!
    but she is doing THE BEST with what she is having BETTER than what christina is doing with her greatER voice for example ….

    U get it @john ?!
    she is the ULTIMATE diva in this generation. i can not think of anyone beside her. can U name one ?!

    OF THIS GENERATION ?! who will do it all ” performing , dancing , singing , able to act decently , modeling , etc …. ?! give her 100% ?! with no Gimmicks ?! Just The best use of her pure talent ?!

    No U can’t. and u won’t even Try 😉

    @WHUT :

    seriously , YOU , with your Gravatar and the Chick in it , who i am so aware of her REAL talent for like 5 years and know her strengths and weaknesses , Is in no good position to talk about Topics like : TRIPLE threat.

    B**** stop and don’t embarrass yourself …

    since when the woman in your gravatar is a threat to anybody ?!

    she is supposedly and mainly a singer ?! can she sing properly Live most of the times ?! 😡

    let alone singing , saying a whole f***** complete sentence/verse while on stage ?!

    NO.

    can she dance ?! 😡
    let’s not even go there …..

    can she even perform ?!

    *silence*
    and i don’t think she is that great in acting either. average. and only when it comes to get her s*** on , nothing more , and all that and i am being generous and didn’t count her accent , which will , for sure , stop her from being respected as an actor , if she is willing to be one someday.
    she is not respected from anybody as a REAL artist. just a pretty face for modeling and taking some photos from here and there. that’s her talent , lookin’ good and smiling.

    oh , and getting inspired by some hookers to fake her gangsta persona !! 😡

    so all in all , with that gravatar of yours :
    no one will take your comments seriously and that ” attention-w****” attitude of yours.

    hope someone give a s*** and respond to u cuz i feel i’m gonna cry of seeing You trying so hard like that.

    Poor BABY 😥 😥

    @Missimpartial :

    she gonna win an oscar for that ROLE , Just WATCH 😉
    it is prepared for her and she will work hard for it. it is never to late to learn. and it is TOO early to judge. 😉

    @ whut

    at least beyonce can do something your girl cannot and will not do for the rest of her life? sing

    rihanna will NEVER be in these type of movie ever. Beyonce had POTENTIAL to improve on her vocals. she can be the best. whereas rihanna? what vocal? she cant sing period! If i was you, i would be soo ashamed to be a fan of goat singer like rihanna! bitter much?

    as for her acting, no beyonce cant act at all.

  98. WHUT January 16, 2012

  100. CRAMPED January 16, 2012

    Beyonce is not the best actress, but in Cadillac Records she was far from a horrible actress. As she said She asked Clint Eastwood to Direct and he accepted.
    I think Beyonce is going to do a great job in ASIB.

    Apart from great acting its also about marketing and $$$$.

    It doesnt mean that because she’s not a great actress she should stop, we can apply the same logic to Singing and “singers”

  101. CRAMPED January 16, 2012

    @Stacey – at least beyonce can do something your girl cannot and will not do for the rest of her life? sing

    Exactly and she’s suppose to be a singer! Should she stop singing?!!! Maybe she should since she’s horrible at both singing and entertaining.

    I don’t see that. you are a delusional rihanna stan , this alone ” beside your childish attitude ” will be enough to prove you can’t be talking about someone being serious or saying that no one is taking me seriously and U will be taken seriously for saying it :lol::lol: :lol::lol: !

    Poor baby 😥 😥 ! she is thinking someone taking her seriously.

    don’t worry about me honey. i need no validation , half ppl in this blog do recognize me ! they “based on this post” kept ignoring you like a STD infected h** 😆 😆

    stay mad honey , you are the one who lick everybody’s ass to respond to u and acknowledge your existence , that’s why u made a continuation to your comments and no one gave a f*** about all of them. 😆 😆

    the only one responded to U in this post saw your name after i acknowledged your stinky ass ! he/she didn’t know about you before then.

    U can see it yourself above 😆

    charisma and influencing others can’t be bought honey. 😉 😉 ! u are not the one to talk about validation , it seems you spent your life looking for it and you desperately wanna find it in Blogs. hope someone give a f*** about you here soon.

    but don’t talk about things you know nothing about as ” seriousness” ! U still stanning for rihanna , remember that and think about it next time you wanna involve this word “serious” in your comments.

    good luck honey 😉

  108. musak January 16, 2012

    to put beyonce in the same class as ella fitzgerald and sarah vaughn is laughable. Bey cant even touch those two legends even if she tried. And as far as her playing Etta James, i thought the role was completely overrated. I read Etta’s biography “rage to survive”, and Bey did not do that woman justice.

    NOBODY IN THEIR RIGHT MIND CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT BEYONCE’S PORTRAYAL OF ETTA JAMES IN CADILLAC RECORDS WAS NOT AMAZING! and her second best perfomance was in dreamgirls. Obsessed was not the best,but it wasn’t bad either,i mean come on,she was playing a damn housewife WTF where u expecting her to be doing?? it’s funny how it’s always the usual suspects that stay pressed as hell when it comes to BEY!

    I will just say donna summer has given rihanna praise, so has britney spears, bono jay eminem coldplay and everyone she has worked with! She may not be getting praised by 10 divas like bey but she is doing really good to be getting any recongnition seeing as how she cant sing!! Although the people i listed and millions more would think otherwise!!!

    @Bey’Knight you are nothing more than a defensive idiot. You have turned into the very thing that your deperate a** argue against on here. Simply pathetic. Don’t twist reality with hate. I didn’t say anything was for certain. But theres a big chance that producers of this movie know that she i a household name and they could possibly capitalize off of that. There are far more talented actresses that could do that movie period. But Beyonce’s fans stay in lala land she wave and y’all would think it’s epic. Find something to do. Your head is so far up her a** you can see what she ate for breakfast lunch dinner and dessert. MC has nothing to do with this everyone already knows that she’s hands down one of the best to ever do it. Thats ot up for discussion.

    Speaking of indifferent thats how alot of folks felt about your girls latest album considering many left the album on the shelf to collect dust, and they dismissed her singles because nobody cared. Do stay on topic and keep your funky panties out of a bunch. You’re welcome.

  120. Sweet Tea January 16, 2012

    This poor child cant act and every reviewer has pretty much noticed that–she only received good notices in “Dreamgirls” b/c she mostly sang and didnt have too many lines. Eastwood is quickly starting to have hard times with his Alzheimer’s apparently b/c this chick is now where near classy like Ella Fitzgerald–she P-pops and sings triflin’ ass songs about her booty, partying and her kitty kat. Hopefully this movie and soundtrack bombs just like “Cadalliac Records” and “4” and then Beyonce’s reign will finally be over….if she bombs with Clint Eastwood she will never get another shot in Hollywood.

    Beyonce also cant sing she yodels she is not in the league of the best singers in the game she is just al-ight. Kelly has a more pleasant tone than Bey–Bey just gets praise because she is pretty, light skinned and carries herself like a w**** which is why white guys like her b/c they like when Black chicks that are hot play the “easy” game.

    I have to say I totally agree with everything @THEMAN said on this post in his/her several comments. Beyonce fans are so defensive. This post was cute, only a few opinions a little bit different about her voice and she not being a good actress by nature, a little bit different of what you think, and you get this defensive, and I´m pressed?? Are u serious trying to make Beyonce looking good cos some huge artists praise her but not Rihanna? haha Of all people… Rihanna? We f****** know Beyonce destroys her. That was not the point of the discussion. We are talking about greats, with great talent. And yeah beyonce´s tone is what makes her not being a truly great voice (up there with the greats I mean), it doesn´t sound special, and she can´t change that

  125. The truth January 16, 2012

    Y can yall all shut up until the damn movie comes out and stop making judgments on something yall haven’t even seen yet. Wait then have a opinion POINT BLANK PERIOD

  126. T January 16, 2012

    I think it will be cool to see Bey in the role. Many People (including myself) didn’t think she could pull of Cadillac Records and that was her best performance to date. As far as people judging her voice. Her technique is sick. if your not a person who listens to beyonce or go to her concerts or watch her live DVDs, all you know is crazy in love and singe ladies the music she pushes out to attract the pop audience but she is much more than that. But if you dont like bey you dont have to watch the movie. its as simple as that.

  127. riri January 16, 2012

    what rihanna got to do with this post? a girl that cant sing for s*** shouldnt be named here!

    generally i dont favour beyonce as an actor! Jhud was better is dreamgirls but beyonce was not bad!

    beyonce is nothing but a flat out copycat thief with a habit of stealing others careers for fame. Beyonce’s voice is not that great her tone is weak she yells more than sing. her voice is like a young kitten falling off a bridge. beyonce voice is like to pigeons giving birth to twins. lol beyonces voice is like two goose in the barn making love.beyonces voice is like a pig masturbating to a chicken porno. beyonce has no emotion or soul in that voice lol beyonces voice sounds like a monkey jumping from tree to tree just crazy loud with two yellow birds in the background as echo enhancers lol .beyonce uses echo to prolong her vocals ,she doesnt really sound like that .beyonce been doing the same runs and vocals since 1998 over singing and stealing

    @ KIMBERLY

    Bey was NOT chosen to play this role. SHE hire Clint to direct her in this film. She bought the rights to this film. She is an executive producer, someone who is backing the movie with their own money…

    i cant wait for this, I always like when she Jazzes up her songs. Those saying that she cant scat should check this out

  141. JAIYAH January 17, 2012

    Do yall know how many other musicals that are coming out between 2012 and 2013? A STAR IA BORN will be over shadow, so I guess good luck with that oscar nod. Bey might have to pay off somebody just to get an oscar nod.

  142. 100% REAL January 17, 2012

    I know everyone’s entitled to their opinion, but now I know for sure that Clint Eastwood is drinking the Kool-Aid! Lol. Ella Fitzgerald?! Is he for real? No offense to Beyonce, but I can’t co-sign on this one. While she has a pretty voice, you can’t compare it to Ella’s voice. But, as I’ve said before, everyone is entitled to their opinion.

  143. Me January 17, 2012

    SAMonce, we know tht Bey has got some sort of talent but to put her in the same lounge as Ella is a clear sign of obsession, check yourself. Be real please. She has a poerful voice and range yes tht we cant deny, bt for some pple to say she is the best vocalist is dumb. That voice lack control. She ain’t innovative at all. I can think of manyvocalists and beyonce won’t even cross my mind. Talk of Mariah, Whitney, Brandy,Aretha Patty, Chaka, Gladys, Celine, J.Huson etc. Those are true vocalist who dont try any hard to impress. So please stop overating her.

  144. RICK January 17, 2012

    The point remains for this ICONIC ACTOR AND DIRECTOR TOO SAY THIS MEANS SHE IS DOING SOMETHING RIGHT
    SO MORE POWER TOO THEM BOTH
    I KNOW SHE WILL DO VERY GOOD OR MAYBE NOT BUT FOR U ALL WHO DONT KNOW WHAT WENT ON TOO TALK LIKE U ALL WERE THERE
    ARE JUST FOOLISH
    WE WILL ALL SEE WHEN THE MOVIE COMES OUT
    WHICH I KNOW WILL BE A BIG HIT

    The fact is this… Clint does well cause everyone wants to work with him so all the great actors and actresses fall to his feet at his pick. However, this case he doesnt have a choice of actress – it’s Beyaawwnce. He has a tough job ahead of him. The critics will slash Beyaawwnce and praise Clint for trying. Pretty much the story… NEXT.

    beyonce is a high class w**** with copycat videos dance moves and lack of emotion with acting singing etc. beyonce stans contine to hate on the careers of ashanti , keri hilson ,ciara ,brandy jazmine sullivan keyshia cole and others that make real soulful and emotional r&b. beyonce stans are a joke ! beyonces fanbase hates on other artist like beyonces work is original and perfect. beyonce continues to steal dance moves and songs while others constantly get compared to her copycat career. keri hilson should have a grammy by now but she doesnt jazmine sullivan has been nominated 8 times by grammys and shes more talented than beyonce but still no grammys .. the music industry is f***** up when rihanna has 4 grammys and real artist never win. so happy fantasia won a 2011 grammy .

  147. yanni January 18, 2012

    BEYONCE CANNOT ACT! BEYONCE IS NOT THE NEXT DIANA ROSS OR WHITNEY HOUSTON THEY COULD ACT ! BEYONCE WANTS AN OSCAR SO BAD SHER USES HER BODY TO SELL S** FOR MOVIE ROLES. EVERYBODY BUT BEYONCE STANS KNOW THAT BEYONCE IS A TERRIBLE ACTRESS AND SHE SINGS WITH NO SOUL IN HER VOICE WHATSOEVER. BEYONCES VOICE IS OVERRATED OVEREXPOSED TRAMP SHE IS.. BEYONCES CAREER BASED ON LIES SHE DOES NOT WRITE HER OWN SONGS AND SHE DIDNT CREDIT KERI HILSON FOR WRITING HER VERSE IN THE USHER SONG LOVE IN THE CLUB OR OTHER SONGS FOR DESTINY’S CHILD .BEYONCES WHOLE CAREER IS ONE BIG LIE .STOP HATIN ON KERI HILSON SHE IS THE BEST WE HAVE SEEN SINCE MICHAEL JACKSON AND AALIYAH !

  148. Reggie January 19, 2012

    This will be great, but I wish he would have cast Jennifer Hudson. It’s a perfect vehicle for her, and she can act AND sing. Oh well!

  149. BEYONCE IS SATANIC January 20, 2012

    BEYONCE CANNOT ACT AT LEAST KERI HILSON MAJORED IN THEATER IN COLLEGE .I WOULD LOVE TO SEE KERI HILSON DO MORE ACTING .KERI HILSON IS IN THE THINK LIKE A MAN MOVIE THAT COMES OUT MARCH 9 ,2012

  150. TARA January 20, 2012

    Beyonce is just a gimmick notice every album she comes out with a movie because she is having s** with movie producers for lead roles,shes not an actress shes not taraji ,nia long, gabrielle union she is a wack actress that wants to win oscars and golden globes really bad,but why? she needs to worry about her fading career and how rihanna and keri hilson is about to take her shine,adele already has on billboard charts along with lady gaga. BEYONCE NEEDS TO TAKE A LONG BREAK AND STOP DOING S*** FOR PUBLICITY

  151. I I I I AM ZOLANSKIII! January 22, 2012

Haters shout beyonce’s failures but whispers her success ,beyonce can sing,act,dance and do everything else without frizz,beyonce is considered as a true legend,bye is perfect for this project and a Oscar on her mantle will do the trick! BEYONCE IS AWESOME ADMIT IT YOU LAZY,GOOD FOR NOTHING DUMB SUPERFICIAL HATERS:p

    —–’50’s Show’ retreads and demoralization as Eastwood
    and Hollywood generally, BALK and BURY the –20th –30th
    –40th –50th and now 60th Anniversary of the awesomely relevant

    ——————————-KOREAN WAR——————————.

    NOTE, Eastwood himself is a Korea era draftee who NEVER went/

    Others —DID. . .

    Peeps better not sleep on Beyonce. I’m not a huge fan of these singers trying to act. But, after seeing Cadillac Records…I’m sold. Beyonce actually changed her mannerism, which is what good actors do. Now, I’m not saying give her the Oscar, but I’m impressed. Plus, she did good in DreamGirls too.

    Now, it does seem the industry hates Clint’s directing. He got slammed so hard for J. Edgar. That may be an issue.
