Beyonce’s DirecTV Commercial

Published: Friday 9th Nov 2007 by Sam

Another day, another Beyonce endorsement; the R&B superstar’s latest foray into the advertising market is for cable company DirecTV. Don’t get me wrong, I like her just as much as the next person, but this is bordering on overkill. What’s next? I mean, she’s already had her name slapped on almost everything saleable. I must say that the whole play on the ‘Upgrade U’ concept was pretty good, though.

Beyonce & Ads: Overkill or not?

    Genius idea. However, it might have been a wee bit inappropriate for the younger audience (the shots with her lying down).

    Let her do her thing. You don’t like, don’t buy, zap to another channel. In the meantime, she’s making her money. Take note and do the same.

    OK NOW SHE’S A W**** OF THE MEDIA, B WILL DO ANYTHING TO STAY IN THE PUBLIC EYE ALMOST LIKE IF SHE TAKES A BREAK PEOPLE WILL FORGET ABOUT HER OR SOMTeHING. WHEN YOU THINK OF B YOUR NOT EXCITED THAT SEE’S BACK BECAUSE SHE WONT REALLY LEAVE. I AM SAD THAT SHE IS OVEREXPOSED AND NOT MAKING THAT MUCH SHE’S NOT EVEN CLOSE ON THE FORBES LIST OF RICHEst FEMALE STARS. JANET 150,000,000 STILL. B 30,000,000 THAT SHOWS THAT SHE IS SELLING HERSELF REAL CHEAP. TO PUT YOUR FACE ON EVERY PRODUCT IS CRAZY WHEN THEIR MAKING ALL THE MONEY OFF OF PRODUCT SHE DON’T BELIEVE IN. the females that make all the money like madonna, janet, mariah are doing it because if they are approahed to sell a product believe me the price is high. b needs to raise her rates and make some real money because she working too hard.

    SMH I hate when haters try to hate but don’t have any facts to back it up. She is gonna make 150 mill off her tour. That sounds like a lot of money to me. Who cares about Forbes List you don’t know how much money she got. And who cares about Janet and Mariah them? I don’t see they asses getting all the endorsements Beyonce been getting. There’s only one person who I see about 3 different commercials of everyday and that’s Beyonce. Obviously these other chicks need to step their game up b/c Beyonce is the only one in high-demand. All these ads want HER and they ask HER not nobody else. Keep staying on top and making your money Bee!

    i love her but i feel like if she continues like that she might used up her time. because the more people see u the less they care. keep them intrigue so they could always want more.

  16. Nad November 9, 2007

    I love her. Beyonce is HOT in EVERYTHING. I will NEVER get tired or sick of her.

    Beyonce isn’t harming anyone, so let her go on with her BAD self. WORK IT OUT, BEY!

  18. KidKlassic91 November 10, 2007

    This b**** is everywhere…. She’s on TV for a perfume, for a cell phone, for DirecTV, I don’t know what else but I know there’s more. She’ll be making commericals untill her next album comes out… Hopefully she goes on a 2 year vacation. She’s very talented but this is overkill…

    lay down and have come kids before it’s too late!!!!!

    Sometimes you just have to laugh at people cause they’ll do whatever for some money.

    Haters I tell you. Well anyway, I say get your paper Bee. At least you ain’t lazy and broke. So what if all these haters don’t like what you’re doing, be on your hustle and laugh all the way to the bank.

    BTW haters Bee goes back in the studio in December so that vacation won’t be happening anytime soon.

    Um, no one knows what you wrote.

    People aren’t classified as “haters” just because we want her to step out of the spotlight, Its a preference. Just because someone says..”it would be nice for beyonce to take a break” doesn’t mean we dislike her..she’s just wearing herself thin , so thin to the point where people really aren’t going to be feeling her anymore.

    (smh @ ppl taking up for her as if she reads this site)

  22. Anonymous November 10, 2007

    so true
    but bee is so starting to suck
    its not even funny no more

  23. Anonymous November 10, 2007

    Because I’m not 100% agreeing with all the selling Bey is doing these days guess I’ll be called a hater. I like bey as much as the next person. But this is overload pure and simple. She will be able to write a book entitled “how over exposure can ruin a career.” She has more commercials than an Athlete with a shoe deal. But hey if its all about the money get it while the getting is good cause I guarantee if its all about the money it will reflect in the music. When ya heart ain’t in it peoples wallets aren’t going to be in it either.

  24. Anonymous November 10, 2007

    SMH Haters haters haters. Obviously Bey is doing something right b/c when you have haters you are doing something right. Bey is always going to sell. Everybody I know loves her ass. I hear people singing her songs or talking about her everyday. So don’t be mad at Bey be mad at the people for always buying her s***. Don’t hate the player hate the game. Keep staying on top Queen Bey!

    Why do ppl have to hate sooo bad, and try to find something negative to say about Beyonce!!???? Just stop hatin!! I agree with one of the people on hear..because obviously she’s not played out and is doing something right to be gettin all these commercials! And if some of y’all don’t like her sooo much…why do she have the most comments on this site???? Yeah…ok..if you don’t like her, don’t pay any mind to her…then maybe she won’t be soo played out to u.

  26. OLW November 11, 2007

    I’m not a hater, I’m a fan…
    But this time I have to sum up : L’oreal, Armani, Samsung, Direct TV, Dereon…

    I know this is all about money and famous, this add permit her to promote her upcoming DVD and there’s no debate, she’s right doing all those add to show how popular she is… But I’m afraid about the overexposure and the fact that if she doesn’t pull herself together, her next album will flop because there won’t be a comeback if she never leave !

  27. rocio perez November 11, 2007

    wooow she is the best and i gotta say this is one of her best commercials..with the concept of uu!!woow i tought it was the video until she started to talk..and it amazes me the most,cuz she is dancing and tellig what she gotta say and she can do both things at the same time without losing the concentration.wooow

    i totally agree with you if she never leaves there will never be a beyonce comeback :O

  30. jjlova06 November 11, 2007

    I’m happy that she is this black female superstar that is known world wide. If she wants to be all over the place let her be. I do agree that she should take a break to be missed and to take a break and look at herself and she what she has accomplished. She is a talented young lady and I wish her well. She just needs to break for herself.

  31. candice November 11, 2007

    I am not a fan, never have been, but I wish her the best. Yes the ad is overkill and tacky, but the last couple of beyonce have been. Besides, she isn’t the brightest young lady. I’ve always gotten the impression that she just does what she’s told. I’m sure she enjoys it.

  32. GLYNN November 12, 2007

    ALL YOU HATERS SHOULD LEAVE BEYONCE. THE ADD WAS REALLY COOL. ALTHOUGH I AGREE SHE NEEDS A BREAK SO WE COULD MISS HER A LITTLE BIT BEFORE SHE COMES BACK AGAIN. THE GIRL IS DOING HER THANG AND IS EXTREMELY TALENTED ANDHARDWORKING. LET HER BE. LUV YOU BEYONCE, ALWAYS WILL….
