Beyonce Performs ‘If I Were A Boy’ On Oprah

Published: Thursday 13th Nov 2008 by Sam

With Beyonce’s ‘I Am…Sasha Fierce’ LP due in stores next week, the Grammy award winning superstar is touching all bases on her promotional campaign – today stopping by The Oprah Winfey Show to perform her smash ‘If I Were A Boy’.
About the performance, it was awesome! You could she she tapped into her acting skills (don’t laugh lol). I’m still waiting for the performance promo push for ‘Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)’ to kick off. She seems to only be performing ”Boy’ everywhere…

Update:
You can now watch Bouncy’s interview on the show, where she speaks on her marriage to Jay-Z, pregnancy rumours and much more:

What do you think of the performance?

    she can not act. she does the same damn movie role every time and she isnt even good at it and she is pretty much playin herself in every damn movie.

  2. Sam Is A.. November 13, 2008

    :/ You have to be able to act to have acting skills.

    Boring performance, per all her slow songs.

    RiRi has sold more than Beyonce!!!!

    Who n the hell would have ever thought.

    This girl came n shook the industry n ran with it.
    All that was from 1 Album, RiRi shut s*** down!!!!!

    Beyonce got the better voice, but this ReRe girl is using everything she got, in she stole the industry show!!!

    Go Girl for beating the unstopable Beyonce!!!

    While I am a fan of Rihanna, and proud of her success, what was the point of posting that? I mean, really.

    I love Beyonce, but Sasha Fierce is a hot ass mess and so is that wretched metal GLOVE. This chick need to go sit down somewhere with all the gimmicks. I'm no A&R but I think Beyonce could benefit from Ri Ri's stylist, hype williams cinematic vision, less stargate/swiss beat sounding production, and NO TACKY TINA influence! That "boufant" she is rocking is not the business! Damn..and fyi she stole "Crazy in Love" from Amerie. Rich Harrison would be nothing if it weren't for Amerie, who's first cd was the s***! Dangerously in love=3 out of 5; B-day:2.5 out 5! Best work Beyonce ever did was on Destiny Fulfilled! I hope this album is good otherwise she's lost me as a fan…cause I will not be "puttin a ring on it."

  6. Sam Is A.. November 13, 2008

    LMAO! To be quite honest, I’ve NEVER been a fan of Beyonce solo, she’s just not original to me, not innovative, just…boring.

    Would does Rich have to do with this though? lol

  7. knox November 13, 2008

    wow u know wat they say….if they r not hating,then u not doin a gr8 job!
    Go Bey….Excellent performance,she looked too!

    RIHANNA HAS 3 ALBUMS AND ONLY SOLD 11 MILLION COPIES WHILE BEYONCE HAS 2 ALBUMS AND SOLD 20 MILLION SO RIHANNA HAS A WHILE TO GO B4 SHE OVERSELLS BEYONCE SWEETIE! GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!

  9. Sam Is A.. November 13, 2008

    Who is hating? No one, gosh, go sit down.

    Who cares about numbers? Jeez, ya’ll are lame.

    Why is it that Beyonce stans feel “I like Beyonce, HOW DARE I LIKE SOMEONE ELSE?!?!”

    It’s stupid.

  10. Sam Is A.. November 13, 2008

    And, by the way, you do realize that the Grammys are a JOKE right?

    I don’t like Beyonce, but I respect her grind though. But, even the industries biggest heavy weights say the Grammys mean nothing.

  11. Zubi November 13, 2008

    that wuz HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!
    the attitude, the stage presence, the notes… everything!(cough! cough! some chick named RiRi cant do all that in 1 performance- go figure!)
    she is tha BOMB!

    RiRi is STILL VERY marketable…. cant w8 4 Rehab video!

  12. Anonymous November 13, 2008

    she is gonna push if i were a boy more than single ladies cause it is more mainstream and marketable than the hott ass mess that is single ladies. everyone is tired of her runnin around in a leotard and whippin her weave. get a new act beyonce. its gettin old quick.

  15. Jai November 13, 2008

    I liked the performance and I loved her look. She looked more modest with the natural makeup and I like her hair when it’s simple and straight like that. Go Bee! 🙂

  16. Sam Is A.. November 13, 2008

    Resi, no she didn’t, grow the f*** up and check your facts. Don’t get mad over someone who doesn’t know you, much less care about you.

    Rihanna once again hasnt shut s*** doown she sold 67,000 more than b and once again those are from international sales. There are still over 1.8mil ppl in america who think bee’s better and wat does that make u wen u cant sale s*** on ur own turf just internationally it makes you kelly rowland. 100 singles and dozens of hitd and she can only do 1.8 in america (on what is suppose 2 b her best album) compared to bee which only had 1 hit and was “her worst album” (to some, i love the album) and she still sold 5.9million so you can take that s*** sumwhere else and like someone else said bee has sold 20million on 2 albums while rhianna has only sold 11million on 3 HAHA shes pathetic

    bee killed that s*** another thing bey got over rhi, rih cant sing live 2 save her life

  21. Anonymous November 13, 2008

    I agree I do think that Bee plays the same role in each movie, I sure hope that the new movie with Idris Elba really shows her acting. Also it was kind of weird hearing her talk about being married. I knew that Oprah would be the one to get it out of her.

    Well I am liking the new ‘Beyonce’ personality a log better….she seems more like a real personal like her sister who I absolutely LOVE!!! Her music…mmm…it’s okay….It is great for background music or good to listen to right before you go out to the club…as for the slow stuff it would be best if she did more soulful music instead of this pop mainsteam crap!

    if i were a boy is not a r&b song, i hate that beyonce purchased this song. BCJEAN kills her song, beyonce riff too much on this song and its not called for. as i said before Pink or Kelly Clarkson wouldve done a way beter job at singing this that beyonce.

    DAMN WHY IS IT THAT EVERYTIME SOMETHING ABOUT BEYONCE IS POSTED EVERYBODY GOT BRING OTHER ARTISTS INTO IT. WHAT DOES BEYONCE BEING ON OPRAH HAVE TO DO WITH RIHANNA NO TALENT HAVING ASS. ALL IM SAYING IS PEOPLE STICK TO THE TOPIC. BUT IMO THE B**** NAILED IT AND ANYBODY WHO THINKS OTHERWISE OR THAT IS BRINGING RIHANNA INTO THE MIX IS JUST JEALOUS BECAUSE RIHANNA ISNT HALF THE PERFORMER OR SINGER BEYONCE IS!

  38. antertain November 14, 2008

    OH WHY WHY WHY is it have to be Beyonce vs Rihanna all the time ??? It just shows they are 2of the biggest acts right now which is props to both of them talented or not, hot albums or not!!!

    Beyonce is a mature woman now and you hear that on the I Am… side of the CD which is quality in parts IMO but maybe abit boring 4 alot of peepz. Halo is the track to shut it down!!!

    Sasha is kind of a mess musically but Ego, Single Ladies and Sweet Dreams (Beautiful Nightmare) are cool enough. Think DIVA might be received well to quite alot…

    Loved her performance on Oprah and she coming across very well & very secretive on the interview, but thats all good.

    LMAO about the bit that Sasha comes home sometimes.. I detect an Innuendo there lol..

    Well Done Bee..
    I reserve judgement on the acting cus i've liked her in Carmen..Hip-Opera and Dreamgirls..

    They say Rihanna out sold Beyonce, Yeah! that’s why riri made every money list in the world?

    Just think about it Rihanna’s singles sold millions, her CD has yet too reach 2mil in the states after being out for basically 2yrs but sold 6mil world wide. They both have/had endorsements. Beyonce worked in the studio producing a new CD, while riri was out and is still out screaming and earning more bad reviews. But while Beyonce was out getting married, shopping, partying and the above CD she made 80mil or more in this same year that riri out sold her in but the only list she made was a best dressed list. Who do you think riri wants to be right about now?

    SO:

    Dont get mad at Beyonce for having talent!!

    Bey is that [email protected] and that’s why stans of other female artist hate on her cause they know there favorites can’t touch her. 10 years and still on top. Rihanna, Amerie, or none of these other hot today gone tommorrow artist will maintain that feat. She kills the performances every time and will shut you down if you perform on the same stage with her. Talking about Rihanna album outsold hers. She still promoting that thing 2 years later and only at 6 mill worldwide WOW. Meantime Bey making forbes list and selling out worldwide tours on her own. Who would you want to be. SMH

  47. Suga Brown November 14, 2008

    BC version is cool but Beyonce adds a good flavour to it.

    I wanna try Bee’s Oxtail with Rice and Peas. I wonder which peas she uses. I hope gungo instead of black eye or kidney lol..

    She did hot performance and interview so i give her props.. She grown so much and seems to be her mentality in a good place.
    Album is cool for the most part so regardless of the beautiful hateration she’ll always do big things..

    SHE’S A WORLD WIDE WOMAN WWW.

    Is it me or has anyone noticed that she shows a lot less skin than she used to??? I guess she’s very mature now I like it! (that’s what being married does to you). In all her recent performances she hasn’t shown her belly at all!! KUDOS!! BEEE LOVE YA

  49. Kay November 14, 2008

    The whole “Sasha Fierce” campaign is asinine! To make up an alter ego just so you have an excuse to be yourself, is juvenile. And I say “be yourself” because the Beyonce we get in the media isn’t who she really is. It’s an image made up by Matthew and her team to give off that wholesome vibe. So really – Sasha Fierce is who she really is and Beyonce is the alter ego.

    Give me who you really are for ONCE!

    SORRY BUT RIHANNA CAN KICK ROCKS. THIS SHOW SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. THIS IS WHAT BEYONCE’S 3RD OR 4TH APPEARANCE ON OPRAH?? ON OF WHICH WAS WITH DESTINY’S CHILD, WHEN SHE WAS ABOUT 19 YEARS OLD. RIHANNA HASN’T EVEN BEEN ON THERE ONCE, AND SHE WON’T BECAUSE OPRAH ONLY CHOSES THE BIGGEST, BRIGHTEST, AND MOST TALENTED STARS ON HER SHOW. RIHANNA IS NOT ANY OF THOSE… SO WHO IS STAR AGAIN?

    AND DON’T GO THERE WITH THAT BEYONCE DON’T CARE S*** ABOUT YOU CRAP CUZ IT AIN’T EVEN LIKE THAT. I JUST STATE THE FACTS. HOLLA

    If Rihanna is so talented and the “it” girl, why do her stans feel the need to CONSTANTLY make comments about it, even if the blog is not about her. Shouldn’t her talent speak for itself????? Oh, wait…her lack of talent does! Beyonce can sing Happy Birthday and put Rihanna to shame. But some of you love her or Chris Brown, or maybe just them together, so I guess she always have someone to buy her CD. LOL…chip in and buy her some vocal lessions.

    The person saying Rihanna sold more than Beyonce its only by 150,000 copies. And it only was counting their most recent albums (Good Girl Gone Bad & B'Day) altogether Beyonce has sold more than Rihanna. Rihanna has only sold 11 million albums with 3 albums while Beyonce sold 17 million with 2 albums. Those numbers i put above are only counting the albums and not singles or downloads and things like that just album.

    Everyone on here who is saying that beyonce plays the same role in every movie is basically saying that because she plays a singer she’s the same character. in that case you are saying that all singers are the same. beyonce is different from britney spears and britney is different from ciara. and destiny’s child is different from the dixie chicks as tim mcgraw is different from usher.

    Beyonce aint got nothing to worry, tell Rihanna to catch up with the Princess Ciara then holla at the Queen! Look 5 years from Now. Beyonce Still will be here along with the Princess Ciara. Aint nobody taking their places. 5yrs people will be like where did little miss sunshine go LMAO! Cus new talent will come and take over her. When she is taking a break thats why she dont cus label is feared her staying power and how relevant she is in the game! Which she isnt! Cus they keep her and her music SHOVED DOWN Our throats!

    The repetitive Rhianna and Beyonce comparisons are getting SOOO OLD. I mean realllly guys. They are to separate people with two separate deals. Let the damn girl (Rhi) get a chance to earn her stripes on the battlefield before you just replace Bey the captain of the platoon. Beyonce has real talent that she shows us every time haters get together with their torches and anti-Beyonce paraphernalia. She can sing while dancing and still be on point vocally(check the trl finale 2008). Rhi has a lot of growth left so im not quite counting her out. but she's not on Bey's or Brandy or Mary's or Alicia or any other past R&B singers level. A hot single, video and annoying publicity stunts should not automatically equate to the best female singer b/c remember when she was ms "Pon de Replay" NO ONE WAS FEELING HER. Jay and Umbrella and NEYO'S SONG WRITING SKY ROCKETED HER CAREER (plus she needs to handle her financial situation. Record sells dont mean a thing when the Def Jam is milking you for all u got leaving with with $20, 000 in the bank. Last I checked $10 a copy x 11 million is A WHOLE LOT more than $20, 000…just keeping it real). Dont get me wrong Beyonce aint perfect, but come on dont degrade her talent b/c you like the "hot new chick in the leather" My point is they are both talented and beautiful, just on different levels vocally, financially, career-wise, and even in age so stop comparing them and just let them do their damn jobs…entertaing and perform. Apples and Oranges are both from the produce section so u take your pice and enjoy 🙂
