The Critics Weigh In On Beyonce’s Pepsi Deal. Do You Agree?

fe0a16d4dca1a807623307d44e18d3c1 The Critics Weigh In On Beyonces Pepsi Deal. Do You Agree?

It’s the deal designed to take her brand to all new heights.

However, despite the fact Beyonce‘s gargantuan dealings with Pepsi Co will inadvertently shine fresh light on her philanthropic efforts, it seems not everyone is as pleased as we are for her.

Indeed, though the deal- which marks one of the biggest to be scored by an African American entertainer- will only see her serve as an ambassador for the brand, her association with them has seen her come under fire for, ‘promoting obesity’.

Details below…

In an article penned by our pals over The Huffington Post the singer finds herself belabored with the following:

“Not only will Beyoncé be featured in ads that will premiere after her performance at the Super Bowl half-time show (sponsored by Pepsi, naturally), but her face will be featured on limited edition Pepsi cans, and she will be given money for her own “creative projects.” The Times reports: “The less conventional aspects of the deal are meant as collaborative projects that indulge Beyoncé’s creative whims, and might well have no explicit connection to Pepsi products.”

This is a marked change for advertisers who seek to completely merge their product’s image with that of a big name celebrity — and it doesn’t get much bigger than Beyoncé, who pulled in $40 million last year alone and has vast international fame.

The multi-year contract with Pepsi — with substantial funds for Beyoncé to work on her own creative projects with “no explicit connection to Pepsi” — shows Pepsi is confident that branding its products with her image will continue to invoke a desired response in consumers. In a method reminiscent of Pavlov’s dog, Pepsi expects to see this outcome without the Pepsi logo even being present. 


Pepsi will so thoroughly attach itself to her and blur the lines between product and spokesperson that everything she does, including her “creative whims” will be linked to Pepsi. Even if these creative whims have nothing to do with Pepsi, she will conjure the brand. This brings to mind the patronage of wealthy families for artists in the middle ages — a kind of artist-indentured servitude.

Beyoncé doesn’t see it that way, at least according to her statement in The Times: “Pepsi embraces creativity and understands that artists evolve. As a businesswoman, this allows me to work with a lifestyle brand with no compromise and without sacrificing my creativity.”

This sounds shockingly naive; especially from a woman who has mastered the art of her brand and become one of the biggest pop stars in the world. And let’s not forget, that one year ago, a video of Beyoncé dancing in a high school cafeteria on behalf of the First Lady’s ‘Let’s Move!’ campaign went viral, indicating what seemed to be her commitment to fighting childhood obesity. Now that she is a new mother, Beyoncé signs on with the one of the biggest soda vendors in the world?

But then again, there are other aspects of this new ad campaign to make one question her logic. The ad that has been revealed features her dressed in tights, high-heels, a suit jacket, and what appears to be matching underwear, while making a pout with her lips — all the while pushing a large grocery cart overflowing with cases of Pepsi. These images will be made into life size cut outs for grocery stores.

This means millions of shoppers across the country will see a hyper-sexualized woman of color, literally pushing a product that is known to contribute to obesity and its related health problems like diabetes and heart disease.

It is especially significant that the populations most affected by these health issues are people of color, and particularly women of color. According to the Centers for Disease Control, one in two African-Americans born in the year 2000 is expected to develop type II diabetes; four out of every ten African-American men and women have high blood pressure; and blacks are 30 percent more likely to die young from heart disease than whites.”


While there are certainly many factors that contribute to these shocking statistics, there’s no doubt that carefully targeted marketing on the part of Big Food corporations play a large role. Beyoncé should think twice before playing right into the hands of Pepsi’s insidious branding — but even more importantly, Americans should start demanding that our government regulate Big Food. In many European countries celebrities are forbidden from advertising for junk foods; not coincidentally, these countries have lower rates of obesity and diabetes, especially among children. If we hope to see more good news in the form of declining childhood obesity rates in this country, we need to work to make sure this Pepsi and Beyoncé “mutually beneficial collaboration” doesn’t portend a new trend.”

So, you tell us

Do you agree with ‘The Post’?

    It isn’t her responsibility to keep fat asses from drinking too much soda! The point isn’t her advertising individuals to drink carts of pepsi…We can all drink soda, but how much you indulge is on you..And if your dumb enough to over indulge while this slim fit women is thee face of this product, your an idiot..My first thought would be “even if she drinks pepsi I’m sure if I want to look like her, I cant drink too much.

    Everything is fine in moderation. I have a rule that I’m only allowed to drink soda if someone paid for it. The only time I drink soda is if someone treats me to a meal or if I go to a party. If you drink soda numerous times a day it becomes a problem.

    Perhaps Beyonce is an energetic performer hence there is nothing wrong in her drinking pepsi to refresh her self after a rigorous performance.

    She is just trying to have a huge publicity which is not a bad idea considering the fact that other stars like Gaga are coming with new music next year and you know she could block every chick in the game with her tricks, if you ask me, this deal is good for promo but i don’t think that’s the only think, if she brings good music then she’s a winner which i think she would cuz she always try to give us good music so it’s all about the quality, if the music is good then she would slay if not then Gaga will take her place in 2013, if we are still alive, anyway, good luck to her, i’m honestly more excited about her album than in HypePop.

    Sick of people using queen B for publicity.where were the critics when she did an advert for pepsi in 2002?why didn’t they ask her about it when she did move your body campgain?Critics have suddenly woken up from their slumber cos the deal is worth $50m.bottom line is if they didn’t complain in 2002 and in 2011 when she did the move your body campaing they definately have no moral justification to question beyonce now.

    Reply

    quietfighter Replied:

    The reason critics are making it an issue because Beyonce is making it a big issue by making sure she doesn’t look bad. by taking this endorsement deal, she might as well say that her so-called concern of obesity/child obesity was just a way of showing she cares. when in reality she doesn’t give crap for people struggling with obesity. she’s just trying to uphold this false image to society that she has a deep concern/love for humanity. But if she really cared, she wouldn’t be so diva dramatic about this whole thing to save face. And if she really wanted to make a change, she would say, “screw the money” or at very least instead of complaining for her cause (which she probably won’t be out training with obese people/kids herself lol ), she could use it to fight for a more vast widely needed cause. instead of being a greedy, hypocritical liar. Because let’s face it, money and material things is the main root of problems today. So her wanting to look like Mother Theresa to the world..she really just adds to the soul sucking destruction of our society. And Michael Jackson didn’t make an needless fuss like Beyoncé, so there was no need to say a word.

    b****, you’re so dumb. You don’t get fat by eating fast food (soda, hamburgers, fries). You get fat if you eat more calories than what you use. A glass of soda has less calories than a glass of milk do. I don’t see any saying that we should stop drinking milk. Actually, there’s a famous campaign saying that we should drink more milk.
    But if you drink liters and more liters of milk everyday, you’ll get fat. It’s only unhealthy if you overate. You won’t get fat because you eat a humburger with fries and soda, you’ll get fat if you eat 5x hambugers with large fries and large soda for the rest of your life.
    Actually, exercises don’t help that much to get thin – unless you’re an athlete under a severe training. If you do exercises and consume more calories than what you need, then you’d still get fat. That’s why you need balanced diet. You can lose weight without doing any excercise if you eat less calories than what you need. Exercises are more beneficial for your heart and muscles than eliminate fat.
    I’m thin and don’t do any exercise, but I still eat anything I want. But I know how many calories I am consuming and how much I need for a day.

    People were fat before that deal and they’ll remain fat after it.
    People aren’t fat because they eat hamburgers and soda. They’re fat because they only eat hamburgers and soda. Fast food is cheap, tasteful and wide available, so for many families they’re the only kind of food they can afford. And top to it off, people don’t have time to eat something else.
    People get fat because they consume more calorie then they spent. A glass of soda has less calories than a glass of milk do. Is milk making people obese? NO! That’s it. It shows just how ignorant people are.
    The problem with fast food is that they aren’t rich of fiber, so we don’t have the perception that we’re full of food, so our bodies think that we’re still hungry. That’s why people who only eat fast food get fat, their bodies are never pleased, they’re always starving because they didn’t consume enough of fiber, so their brains keep sending messages saying that they need more food. This cycle makes them eat more and more calories than they spend, so they get fat.

Its lazy parenting and lazy schooling takomg recess and gym out of school.it’s people who can’t take 15 minutes of a 24 hour day to break a sweat.

    They criticised Diana Ross after she got offered a “5 Million Dollar Deal” to advertise for Coca Cola, in 1972, when she was at the peak of her solo success.

    They criticized Michael Jackson, in 1984, when he got offered his “25 Million Dollar Deal” for Pepsi.

    They criticized Janet Jackson, in 1992, when she got offered her “100 Million dollar Deal” with Virgin Records.

    …And now they are criticising Beyonce for her 50 Million Dollar Deal.

    It’s really what she stands for. Behind all the facade it looks like she isn’t too different from her husband who famously rapped about “Money, Cash, Hoes”. All this makes her seem vapid and shallow. She seems to have no opinion and stands for nothing. She did that healthy eating campaign but it seemed more like an Obama-Carter-Knowles back-stroke for Michelle honouring her at the Billboard Awards with nonsense like, “She’s an amazing role model.” Really, Michelle? Maybe you’ll reconsider when your OWN daughter gets her Freakum Dress on.

    If Beyonce had been more consistent and not tried to have this motherly, mature image throughout her pregnancy, this sudden overt sexual desperation depicted with Pepsi (she does look ridiculous in that pic) wouldn’t be so off-putting but here she is with “4” only just over and she’s already churning out a new album rather than taking off much needed time to raise her child.

This photoshoot is part of the promo for her next career step as Beyonce the sassy entertainer, not Beyonce Blue Ivys mom. Beyonce has partnered with pepsi for her career benifits, like so many other popstars do. Why is it all of a sudden ‘money cash hoes’/shallow and vapid because its Beyonce? So what if she did the campaign in gratitude for Michelle thanking her. When Michelle said she is an amazing role model, I can totally understand where she was coming from, she was talking about Beyonce as woman and the way she carries herself in the public eye and as person which has always been mature even back in the days of Destinys Child.

    I think what a lot of y’all are forgetting is that she did that whole eat healthy campaign with Michelle Obama, someone who she still associates with and happens to be the First Lady. Then she is now doing a deal with Pepsi and we all know pop is major part of obesity. It’s just a big contradiction it make her look money hungry and like she doesn’t stand for anything. When I first heard about her Pepsi deal I thought good for her but wasn’t she promoting healthy eating. I think the best way for her to get ppl off her back is
    when she does her commercial she should say something like “Pepsi is my favorite drink, but I only drink one a day because remember you can still drink your favorite drinks just in moderation” I know that’s corny but that’s just and example.

She helped Michelle out, the kids love dancing to a bit of Bey and it worked for both her and Michelles advantage.

    Our favorite foods sometimes: Ice cream, pizza, cookies, cake, etc but I think if u overeat and don’t exercise then u will be a fatty. Beyonce promoted exercise with the let’s move campaign. Not a diet plan. She’s not Rachel Ray or Martha Stewart telling these people what to eat. That’s up to you. What she did encourage to children was a healthier way of eating that the average person should follow on the food guide pyramid. Soda is at the very top so that means have soda in moderation dummies. Adults should know this. Duh. Either way she’s still getting her money and she’s not a fool to pass that up. No one would. This is how it’s been for a long time. Endorsements are the real ways celebrities keep their money rolling.

    I’m sorry but this Pepsi deal makes Beyonce look like a product did they even pay mJ that much 4 his? And when his head got burned he donated half of the money to the hospital that treated him I can see what everyone is saying she does the lets move campaign and now does a big ass Pepsi deal just be real she’s an opportunist. She don’t give a f*** as long as she gets more money #pathetic

    i am going to repost something I’ve posted in Rihanna post. and some more which i will add on.

    the dislike for beYAWNce started small, when she stole people’s ideas, dances, songs and whole lot of other things. she never acknowledged the people only when she was confronted would she then resort to “i was inspired ” she never says that before but only after.

    her album un4tunate was flopping so she needed a new gimmick and sympathy sales, so she faked her pregnancy. it backfired and there were too many bloopers with this pregnancy. then came the hospital fiasco, these two things(faking &hospital ) will forever be attached to her.nothing will save her from this not even her self made damage control documentary, if anything it will reveal her true nature; a self-centered narcissistic faker.

    she thinks she can buy people’s sympathy just because now she is coming back with an Album and other things.

    why did it take her this long if she wants to prove she is preggers? is it because she has things to promote now? and why the secrecy with the baby when they first openly posted the pictures? i believe the first released pics were Photoshopped. beyawnce is ashamed of her baby.

    expect the documentary to be manipulated because she herself made it and will edit it to her liking you know she has to potray that “perfect image” she will most definitely play for the cameras.

    do NOT expect to see the unexpected, only the typical, boring and predictable.

    this Pepsi deal put the nail to the coffin.

    looks like she will be kicking off her so-called 2013 “comeback” with the wrong foot.

    2013 The death of beYAWNce career and relevance and the long road down to Vegas.

    Wow. Just, wow…

    Your post is an example of what a bored, isolated, emotionally starved and severely bitter person with Internet access does to entertain themselves and soothe the tender chip on their shoulder. How lacking must your life be to harbor this much silly angry and angst, and to be this pressed, over a celebrity who has not only done nothing to you personally…but is totally oblivious to your existence on this earth, and isn’t at all personally or professionally affected by the hours you probably spend online maligning them in the comment section of one of the millions of blogs that exist on the web? Honestly, what do you even get out of it? What does it accomplish? It isn’t as though when you click on ‘submit comment’ on one of your incendiary remarks that Beyonce receives negative shock waves to her temples, and I doubt that your words have ever been able to convert a single fans into becoming a hater. So what was it all for? All you did was waste your own time that you’ll never get back trying to vent pent up and deranged malice, but in the end you’re still constipated. My guess is that you’ve been on your anti-Beyonce kick, and have probably been slandering her online, for years. Right? If you were able to “hate” her away, wouldn’t she be gone by now? Hmmm. Again, your time wasted. Congratulations.

    Sam should charge people like you a fee to have access to the comments section. I get the feeling you’d actually save your quarters for it too. I’m thinking that it’s most likely your only activity and means of social interaction. While the rest of the world is basking in the holiday season, enjoying the comfort of their friends and loved ones, you’re on here writing (and reposting) bitter, frustrated, grammatically poor, and ultimately FUTILE essays about a pop singer, hoping to get a rise out of people, so that their reaction hopefully fills some of those potholes in your soul that longs for the attention that you don’t otherwise get anywhere else.

    Sad.

    This is really, really stupid. WTF has our world come to? This so called issue is so trivial and there are more important things in the world to worry about. Stars like Michael Jackson, Madonna, Britney, Pink, Enrique Iglesias and David Beckham have done Pepsi! Where the hell were all these groups/critics then???? It’s not up to Beyonce to monitor how much Pepsi her fans or people in general consume. Pepsi isn’t “bad” for you unless you drink it several times a day every day. Matter of fact, it’s the same with fast good. No one is forcing this food down our throats. It’s not like America made it so that we are only allowed to buy fast food, soda, and alcohol. These things are marketed, but again…. it’s up to a person if he/she wants to ONLY consume these things and not be cautious of how many calories he/she is consuming. Salads can have as many calories as a cheeseburger and fries if a person adds lots of dressing, cheese, and other items. Come the hell on… they’re acting like she’s promoting cigarettes or even drugs. Even if people aren’t a fan of Beyonce, it’s common sense that this issue is irrational.

    The woman who wrote this article really is pathetic! The way she brought up Beyoncé’s race and how it would influence black people is damn right stupid. If she can’t write an article without being subjective and ignorant I suggest she quits. The other points are fair but really, she just needed to fill up her article because she has nothing else to say. Can’t even be arsed to shade Rihanna today because of this dumb b****!

    Whatever, it’s not that serious. She must not understand business cuz this whole articule is more than ridiculous. Beyonce is smart and paid so whatever…..It’s business. That’s the great thing about America, you can chooose to drink a pepsi or not and if Beyonce persuades you to drink one, then so be it.

    Meh. This is all beyond transparent. Beyonce is one of many, many, many celebrities who have–and do–endorse Pepsi, and i don’t remember anyone questioning any of their motives (or attaching phony moral indignation to them) for it. So basically I’m calling null and void on this whole discussion. Beyonce isn’t shoving Pepsi down anyone’s throats and it isn’t her responsibility to play anyone’s nutritionist. People either want to drink it, or they don’t. If they choose to, how much they consume (and are subsequently affected by it) is totally up to them. Not her.

    In other words: shut the f*** up and find something else to talk about.

It seems like it’s been all about BEYONCE the celebrity, not Beyonce the singer/”songwriter.” Can we tone down the endorsements, products, celebrity, and persona and just keep it strictly about the music? I honestly don’t think she can anymore. I need an album full of “End of Time”s and “Miss Yous”s

    I swear certain individuals have it 10 times harder than most celebs that promote way more destructive things than Pepsi. So now that Beyonce nabs a huge deal to envy, she comes under fire for not being sensitive to every issue our country faces (obesity, the state of African American health, over sexualized campaigning, regulation of “Big foods”). This is all bs! The U.S. pratically made fast food chains (MCDonalds, Wendy’s, Burger King) a big part of our culture for decades. They want to scrutinize her image (which is more flirty than sexual) and give us this hypocritical rant about her provocative dress code, but it’s fine to use that kind of marketing for the new “James Bond” movies or in “Calvine Klein” ad’s. Those images are often way more graphic and inappropriate.

    There’s such a double standard on so many levels. We’ve loss 20 kids in Connecticut last week by a craze gunman, but gun voilence is in our everyday programming on television and in film. Children have access to this regularly. These aren’t the concerns of most critics, instead they’re focusing their energies on singling out a pop star that won’t take on the active role our government is suppose to. They also are nervy enough to imply that she’s disappointing her African American community. When she runs for office I’ll analyze her in that fashion. Until then these critics need this > ________l (for their delusion).

    Ummm, where to begin with this tomfoolery?

    There ae many contributing factors that lead to weight gain STRESS & ANXIETY from a number of sources (the constant scurge of racism, self-hatred, life changes i.e. loss of love ones, job etc). Some folks intake too much food and refuse to properly emininate and MOVE THEIR BODIES as they should so, we cannot simply blame GREEDY CORPORATIONS. They have and will continue to market their products to men, women & children regardless of what harm it causes.

    Beyonce is being used as a scapegoat in the same way Ke$ha and her single “Dying Young” has been in recent days. I see nothing wrong with endorsing a product that you feel strongly about. Some endorse that “BLIGHT ON HUMANITY” known as PETA and I see no protest about that! 0_o Hell, former Gov Sarah Palin, recent murder victim and the primary cause of the MASS MURDERS at Shady Brook Elementary, Nancy Lanza (taught her so, Adam how to use high-powered assault weapons and had them readily available for his use), actor Clint Eastwood, director, Quintion Tarontino and others in Hollyweird are open supporters of the wanton use of guns and always have been! However, no one’s been complaining about them! ……With that said, STFU and stop using celebrities as scapegoats becuase they are easy targets!

    you kids need to check your science. One diet drink a day increases your risk of obesity and diabetes. You will be pummeled through every mobil portal to eat the crap pepsi serves. Pepsi is going after non-whites and immigrants that eat your toxins just to fit in. THEY WANT YOUR ADRENAL GLANDS AND GLUTAMATE RESPONSE UNDER THEIR CONTROL. You are already zombified. They want you cradle to grave and Beyonce is their puppet.
