    OK. Beyonce is a great performer but I am really getting pissed with the selfishness of the Knowles clan. They keep pushing back Michelle's stuff while bringing forward what was to be a 2009 album.

    In any case, if the album is still 2009 as I suspect it is, it just goes to show they understand how to promote albums when it comes to Bey but not for the others. They did the same thing with both Michelle & Kelly putting out one song from March or April and nothing else till the album was out. No hype, no major show performances or even presentations. I have to say out of principle I wont be buying this album until I see some justice especially for Kelly. Beyonce & fam are too selfish!

  3. miim September 7, 2008

    you know i couldnt agree more they are looking more nad more selfish in my eye’s when is kelly and michelle gonna get justice and move out from the big b’s shadow even her sister is begining to get more coverage.

    NON-UNION!!?? These Knowles are cheats, they know how to rip-off and underpay people who deserve to be paid more. I know there’s the “publicity factor” and all but still this makes them look cheap and sneaky.

    Do you think it’s gonna be samples from OR like the No Doubt song, that went :
    “Oh I’m just a girl, a little lonely…” -Or it went something like that… You all know what I’m talking about.

    you know, for a bunch of bloggers who simply couldn't wait for Beyonka to drop another album, theres really a bunch of haters on here posting smack. I do think Bey should wait until 09 to drop something so that everyone has a fair chance to make their millions, but geezz…. it's not that serious… anyways, the title & concept both seem very interesting. I read that Kanye & Pharrell have both contributed on the track so the product should be nothing less than genius. let's see what pops…

    Okay, you Anonymous people are a joke!!!! I love Kelly and I like Michelle and Solange, but why should Beyonce step back so some one else can shine. Kelly had great promotion and it’s up to the public to buy there music. Beyonce could have the worst PR ever, but her fans will get her album regardless. So don’t blame her, Kelly needs to find new management in my opinion because she is extremely talented, if the PR is that bad go some wjere lese, hell even Solange had sense enough to leave.

    I agree with the comments above regarding Michelle. If her dad can market Beyonce and Solange then he can do the same for Michelle and his other artists. It only takes a little bit more work. The days when a manager could only market one artist at a time are over. Multiple artists can be promoted by the same manager with only a little bit more work.

    Gee Whiz Beyonce, no white people?! I kid I kid, lol.

    @MzJGaines
    You must be joking! Kelly did not get great promo and that is repeating with Michelle. Most people still don’t know Kelly had an album out even with the re-release and as Michelle articulated she doesn’t think her album is being promoted well. IMO solonge has gotten the best of the 3.
    I can understand why it would be harder for Michelle to get a break since she is “newer” to the solo scene but every DC fan knows Kelly is just as talented and beautiful as Beyonce and she has the more personality too. I can’t see why they think Bey has to get every mag cover, every endorsement.

    Ok I know the sponsors get to choose but managers/ record labels negotiate and use various things as leverage. They obviously used Bey as leverage to get solonge on all those morning shows, etc so why don’t they use it for Michelle? They all stormed to ABC after solonge embarrassed herself on Fox. Quick damage control by the team when any rumours start circulating or people are “dogging” either of the knowles sisters but where are they when everybody is talking about Kelly’s breat or poor record sales.

  18. Anonymous September 7, 2008

    Okay first let just get this topic straight….Michelle is not even Managed by Mathew Knowles…She has her own management team and Michelle is not even with Cloumbia….So her push back have nothing to do with Beyonce and company….

    Solange had major promotion with her current CD, but her music went on death ears because they were not readio friendly songs..She made great music, but promotion sometimes doesnt work, it’s what connects with the listeners that have that ever lasting effect on if they will purchase the album…..

    Kelly had promtoions but she lack major stage performances…..

    ANd damn everyone is not made to be a star….everyone success level is different…

    Now that being said, Beyonce better bring it with this song and video….

    Michelle iIS managed by mathew and her album is Columbia/Music World (AKA mathew knowles). Get that Straight. Please…kelly has stage presence, i will admit not as much as Bey but in that case they should push her songs for airplay b/c they are very radio friendly. I like watching Bey perform but I can't stand listening to her except irreplaceable. I will listen to Kelly's album over and over but Bey i have to watch to enjoy.

    PS. Dont tell me Kelly has no stage presence cause her two shows this past week at the Nike Human Race event(Paris, France) and the Orange Warsaw Music Festival (Poland) were good enough to lock any US show. Don't know why they have her hiding out in Europe like she is not good enough for the US scene.

    Lets shut down all this Blame and hate…It is up to these grown women to fight for THEIR careers, no matter who is who family, put your foot down and make the fight for your future…if Bey’s Family is putting her first…its more of a good business decision, she obviously brings the money in, and her presence cast light on all the girls….so it actually help…stop hating her and hate the fact the others are not taking more aggressive stance in their careers, if it means changing management or labels…then do it….s***.

  32. Anonymous September 7, 2008

    Kelly and Michelle are both on Music World’s official site, which means they are signed to Matthew’s label. I’m assuming their distribution is through Columbia then. So that means Matthew does have an authority on the release of their albums and promotion.

    There is still no signs of a 2nd single from Michelle and her album drops next month. Kelly released 5 music videos on her latest album and all of them barely got air play or none at all. However, 3:24 made a valid point. It’s up to Kelly and Michelle to demand better. Nothing about their situation will change unless they do something about it. It seems like they are too loyal and lack business sense. Everybody knows they get the short end of the stick all the time and it’s just sad that they are content with it. I don’t as bad for them as I used to. They need to be more aggressive as artists.

    WHY THE HELL IS HATERS SAYING KELLY GOT PROMOTION

    THE ONLY GOOD PROMOTION SHE GOT WAS FOR LIKE THIS
    THEN THE ALBUM WAS FOREGOTTEN
    AS FOR BEYONCE HER WHOLE BDAY CRAP GOT PROMOTED EVEN AFTER THE RE-RELEASE lol
    BEYONCE LOOKS 30 BY THE WAY

  38. MzJGaines September 7, 2008

    Okay since you want to analyze my comment, check the records, Kelly was everywhere before Ms Kelly dropped. I didn’t really comment on Michelle’s PR because I’m not that big a fan, and Solange was everywhere. You could have the biggest PR ever, if the public isn’t buying your music, that’s not Beyonce’s fault. Yes Kelly does have great stage presence, but like I said, it’s there choice to stay and then it becomes their fault that they are not making changes in their careers. But I purchased Kelly and Solange’s album.

    well i like that Beyonce is comming back, and u cant blame the knowles family because its Kelly and Michelle own fought that they cant sell like Beyonce because they should try to stay out of Beyonce ass and maybe they can get the fame they deserve. Beyonce cant help it that she is hot and can stand alone with out Destinys Child. but anyway im looking foward to Beyonce new album and video she is truely a star.

    So should Ciara also be sued for biting continuosly off Janet Jackson like when she wore a Janet shirt at an award show or how about the whole Janet getup from the pleasure priciple video that she(Ciara)performed in on the BET awards in 06. Oh or how about the naming of her album the Evolution that countless other artist including Robin Thicke who had just named his album that 2 months before Ciaras dropped. Should we call her out to be sued for all the countless other biting things that shall remain nameless that she has done. So shut up you dum Ciara stan you sound stupid. Anyway I can’t wait for Bey to come back and bring the heat although I hope her song isn’t called I’m just a Boy we don’t need that mess again.

    ^^^the two people above me can go kill themselves.

    nobody says anything about ciara ass shaking or rihanna flat ass shaking.

    unlike them, beyonce dont have to change her hair style to stay relevant. she can get on stage, sing her heart out, and still get a standing ovation and sell millions.

    queen bey is the top black female artist whether you like her or not. NO ONE is on her level. Check Forbes. She stays winning. Get ready because your favorite mediocre chicks are about to disappear. When Beyonce is around it is all eyes on her.

And ofcourse she’s gonna bring the heat or you won’t be on here trying to prove ptherwise. She always has nomatter what the haterz say. She doesn’t need to change anything she always reinvents herself somehow and all you haterz are left thinking…WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT…hmmmm cos you lace an essential ingredient CREATIVITY AND ACTUAL TALENT! not that nonsense Rihanna’s doing these days

    Ok so I have read a few of the comments on here and I have got 2 say most of you don’t know what you are talking about!!!! Matthew Knowles does Promote Kelly Rowland and Michelle THE SAME as Beyonce!!

    When Kelly was Re-releasing her new album (Ms Kelly) She was on EVERY TV SHOW in Australia in just one week she was on about 4 or 5 and had a Special on MTV Australia and was on Radio Shows and had Posters at CD stores she was honestly EVERYWHERE!! Plus her song Work was top 10 for weeks and When Beyonce brings out music she does not get that sort of attention here.

    I rarely see her (Beyonce) on any shows etc BUT her albums sell more then Kelly because at the end of the day she makes better music and people want Beyonce on there shows simply for her Star Power!!

    They tried 2 do a big Ms Kelly tour but people didn’t want 2 buy her tickets in the US I don’t know why cuz I think she is talented and Beautiful! But Beyonce will always win because she is a LEGEND and never fails 2 deliver!

    Beyonce is not a selfish b**** like everyone reckons she is just better!!!!!
