Watch: Beyonce Reacts To Being Honored For Her Writing

Published: Friday 4th May 2012 by Sam

 

As earlier reported, Beyonce was honored for her literary contributions by the New York Association of Black Journalists this week.

The mini-industry earned first place in the Arts & Entertainment category at the NYABJ Awards for an insightful article she penned for Essence magazine‘s July 2011 issue, in which she detailed how a 9-month hiatus from the industry “renwed her soul”.

Watch as she reacts to the honor below…

 

More power to her.

    WoW! Yall cannot be serious! She’s a laughing stock along with the bogus award that no one else was nominated for.
    Go head Beyonce! Keep up the good work!

    One of the comments i read on the original post “Beyonce was put on earth to make [people like u feel shitty about your lives] ” and i couldnt agree more. One of them was so pressed, she drifted to comparing rihanna’s album sales to Beyonce’s, prophecising the future and all. The pressedness couldnt be hidden lol.

    Congrats again Bey, keep killing em with hardwork & accomplishment. Luv u 4 ever and so do other relevant people 🙂

    @Kaka

    Bey must have you mad!!! the word is bye, not by.

    @Pete

    About as much as he paid for Rihanna’s other 1.8 Vevo views so she could hold the record for 24hrs.

    DEAD @ Greg. Bey will forever be ghetto glam. She is one hell of a classy lady but she will never forget her deep southern Texas roots. Love it!!

    I hope Beyonce prays because the amount of lies about her and hate is just too much to handle. She needs to pray for strength. God sees all the bad mouthing she receives for no reason and he will pass judgement on all of those who make lies against our neighbors. Repent. If i have learned anything in my short life it is that god is the only way.

    I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
    what she said here

    My mother taught me the principles of hard work, setting my own goals and visualizing my future. From my early days with Destiny’s Child, I understood I had to be focused and dedicated if I wanted true success. We were taught we needed a plan and the discipline to execute that plan to the fullest. I strongly believe if you work hard, whatever you want, it will come to you. I know that’s easier said than done but keep trying.

    The same person that wrote a grammatically incorrect letter to the First Lady of the U.S.A….o_0

    ok.

    The guy from Essence said they had to “edit her”. I’m curious to know what that editing included. I suspect it was presenting a piece written by an underpaid/overworked intern or freelance writer that she put her stamp of approval on and changing a word or sentence as she does with the the songs that she also “writes”.

    Stans take your meds. I’ll wait for any of you to reply without predictable and overused accusations of “hating” to anyone who doesn’t believe this gal is the second coming of Christ. Just cause a bish is your fave doesn’t mean that you should accept everything they do.

    I stans for NO ONE and everyone I like can get some side eye fever too when they deserve it!

    @whyohwhy…….. she doesnt have to strip?……she prances around in a one piece with her cheeks hanging out all the time…..*walks away shaking head at Beyonces fans* and i actually like Beyonce’s music, what i dont like is the hype and undeserving push her PR machine assaults us with. It is an image she has created but like she told her fans, im telling her “bring it down”

    @ GREG Beyonce the most descent pop star out. Please darling go look at the other girls costumes and watch Beyonce’s don’t be ignorant. Beyonce performs on a stage and she doesn’t concentrate on what she is wearing. she wears it for her comfort, not hese pop stars that barely move but just model on stage.

    To think that wasps are already angry at beyonce when she had a long break in 2010, maternity leave 2011, and 2012 think of PR? b****** get a life, this woman is barely on the scene. She is not even on tour. When she is at home she is a flop, when she is working like she should, then it is another story.

    Haters don’t be too confused, know what you want and that is not in the line of beyonce’s job cause she has a fanbase and a career. if she is not for you then move on. she has fans to please. jealous whores.

    Anyway Beyonce congratulations

    I know the stans r gonna hate me for this but, how is it that Bey wrote those “wonderful” body of work when she is known in the industry as not being the smartest person to speak? She was even said by that famous archeologist in Egypt that gives tours of the king tut tombs that she is very stupid and knew absolutely nothing about. As soon as I read she won this award I was immediately skeptical. I like Bey but she gets a huge amount of credit for work she doesnt actually do.

The scheme, launched as part of the 1 year anniversary celebration of the ‘Lemonade’ album, is for the 2017-2018 academic year and… Read More
