Beyonce – ‘Diva’ Video

Published: Tuesday 23rd Dec 2008 by Sam

The video for ‘Diva’, one of Beyonce’s two new singles, premiered a few hours ago. Directed by Melina, the video is both a hit and miss affair IMO. Raw, gritty and edgy, the clip really captures the essence of the song. However, having seen Sasha step her game up on the choreography tip with ‘Single Ladies’ (and start a dance craze in the process), the choreography in this kinda left me a little salty. The word ‘lacking’ immediately came to mind when watching her bust moves which looked as if she made them up there and then. Still, a good video all the same. The black and white concept was pushed a little further with the colour contrasts i.e. the fire explosion etc. Like most things Beyonce, I’m sure this one will be big – it’s already taking off at radio. {Thanks Jonelle!}

Be on the look out for the 2nd of Beyonce’s videos ‘Halo’ later today.

What do you think of the video?

    THE VIDEO IS….

    I HAVE TO AGREE WITH SAM ON THE LACKING OF CHOREOGRAPHY. I’M JUST ALL IN ALL READY FOR SOMEBODY ELSE TO TAKE OVER I’M TIRED OF SEEING BEYONCE ON EVERY DAMN THING. IT’S GETS TO BE A BIT TOO MUCH. AND I KNOW I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT THINKS THAT. BUT WHATEVER

    This song is the biggest pile of poo ive heard in a long time,very crap-the video didnt do anything for me-the whole concept of this song was pointless,just seems like B has lost that edge,

    Lol idk what to say…she hasnt really been doing it 4 me which that garbage excuse for an album. I do think this is one of the better songs. The vid is crazy…the only thing i didnt like was the Black n white..im tired of vids in black n white..i will say its pretty fly and i would have never guessed that melina directed it.

  7. Angie December 23, 2008

    I loved the video!!! I’m the biggest beyonce fan.. I love the song… Her whole CD gets played by me on a daily basis… I liked the choreography… yeah, it wasn’t “single ladies” dancing, but it coulda been worst and it’s nice to see her do something different once in a while… least she’s dancing and singing “ms fenty” doesn’t do rarely does any of that!

    Love this video and the one for Halo. DIVA video is a great video. And at least she didn’t give u some shitty video of just walking around, like lil wayne did us all wrong with that a milli video. A Milli video was jus plain garbage. This diva video is really a great video. It go hard to the dancing, the fashion, to the color, and the blowing car scene. Com’n now what more can u ask for. Who ever say she copy ciara, u know u a damn lie,because this video is different from anything that is out now. And who in the hell is looking for ciara to put out a album. Maybe u, but not me. Only people im looking forward to seeing doing there thing is Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys, and lil bit of Leona Lewis. That’s about it, because they are the ones who actually can sing and give u good music that are worth ur money.

    Yo she looks like Lady Gaga with the shoulder pads..lol..the video is straight

    she def shoulda came harder in the dancing department. your def. right it was lacking. funny thing about it.. this looks like a really bad version of some sort of jonte’ CHOREOGRAPHY. lets just hope this song comes to life on stage cuz the video just simply had me saying next.

  14. keith December 23, 2008

    Song is GARBAGE, video is a waste of celluloid. When will she stop pandering to lowest common denominator interests? She needs to drop this whole Sasha Fierce crap and just make good songs/videos. But, as Sam said, it will spread like a virus through radio and the silly twinks and BGMs that worship her….

    I’m 20 yrs old and I know that I’m not no silly twink. Why all the name calling and bashing. I like the video, it made me like the song even more. It’s different and that’s what need rite now. Not the same ol same ol that many other singers put out same videos as the next artist. And believe me when I say this, Beyonce is bringing something different, this is really a good look for her. I bet u the next artist going to try to do their music video alot like this one. I’m telling u watch now. Luv the gold men statues. The video go so hard. U have to give it up for that. Yall know it, some just don’t know how to give credit when the credit is due.

  18. mims December 23, 2008

    woah. awesome video.

    i don't find it 'lacking' or what not. and that's because i believe that not all of sasha's videos are going to be 'single ladies pt II' or one that only focuses on her dancing. it's something fun, bold and certainly diva-ish.
    sasha doesn't spend all of her time sahking that body of hers, you know. 'single ladies' was all about he dancing. and that's that. but 'diva', on the other hand, is all about unleashing herself and breaking all boundaries and going out there. that's what makes each sasha video unique.

    and about the black&white theme.. in case you haven''t already realized, beyonce is going with a black&white concept this time around, with the album spread and the videos. it truly embraces the whole contrast of beyonce&sashafierce.

    one more thing, there will always be things that look-alike or share similar concepts. it is without a doubt inevitable. as far as copying is involved, i think beyonce is way above and better than that.

    nevertheless, it's a wonderful video altogether. i love everything about it, from the raunchy dancing to the unexpected turn at the last few seconds where video phone started playing.

    'nuff said. i love it.

    Diva is horrible. Not my taste, it can stay with the hood girls and gay men just like single ladies did. The video looked like a mixture of the old lil kim swag mixed with Ciara’s popping and twisting choreography. Nothin in it said I’m Beyonce at all. She needs to work on her self identity because to me she still doesn’t know who she is.

  27. Anonymous December 23, 2008

    This video is a joke and the song. The whole time she is bragging about how much money she makes. I thought she is supposed to be humble. And, somebody mentioned Santogold. I didn’t realize it until that person brought it up. Don’t understand how somebody can be so well respected but is also a thief. She is so flippin LAME!

    She looks super stupid. I’m sorry but I couldn’t help but burst out laughing as soon as she started dancing! She is way too big, as in grown, to be dancing like that and trying to be so damn “hood.” lol, omg, fuckery at it’s best. She looks like 12 year olds who try to be grown. OMG lol, this is sad, to those of you who think it the dancing is “on point” or “wicked”…you have no clue. I’ve seen these dances a hundred times…from kids that is. Grow up Beyonce’ your time has come.

  37. ND December 23, 2008

    I don't know if some of ya'll realise but 'Diva' is from the Sasha Fierce side of the album!!!

    So why the hell am i reading people say that beyonce needs to work out her own self identity! huh?? What part dnt u get….

    I Am – Beyonce

    Sasha Fierce – Sasha!!! (Alter-ego/fake persona/an act!)

    Some of ya'll comments are dunce.

    Then I'm reading about copying Aaliyah!! WTF NAH MATE!!! Aaliyah WAS NOT the first person to do a water shot and had she had been so what! Have u ever heard on inspiration. I mean you see nice shoe's den u go out, buy dem and MAKE IT UR OWN!

    Ciara – please. Ciara said her biggest inspiration to be an artist was Beyonce & Destiny's Child. So does that mean Ciara's copying Bey hell no.
    AND EVEN IF BEY DID COPY CICI SHE SHOULD BE GRATEFUL THAT SHE'S EVEN BEING ACKNOWLEDGED.

    Sasha Fierce upgrades anything she likes from a 7 to a 10 mate!

    Instead of spending ur time on artist's you dont like why not spend ur money and support artists you do like?

    First Beyonce took Ciara’s concept for “If I were a boy” and the next thing you know she’s doin the matrix? EVERYBODY knows that is Ciara’s trademark move. So dont even go there with that other bull s*** yall talkin. Sayin Ciara stole blond wigs from Beyonce, since when is Beyonce the first one to wear a blond wig? And since when does Beyonce own Melina? And half of Beyonce’s songs sample ppls songs from back in the day. Beyonce fans be two-faced rats, i swear. Its okay for her to steal Ciara’s moves but when Beyonce stole that lady’s moves for single ladies it was okay? GET BACK. No matter how much bigger Beyonce is than Ciara that dont make that s*** okay. But Karma is a B****.

    10:13 What in the world are you talking about take your own advice dummy. The matrix move is not Ciaras move it came from a movie called the MATRIX how can it be any clearer. Ciara got the name of her last album from Robin Thicke. She took her style from a mixture of Janet and Aaliyah. She has copied Bey in the past as someone else said right down to her lyrics remember Uh Oh Uh OH OH No yeah from the biggest hit of 03 Crazy in Love well Ciara used that in one of her songs. And Super C yeah you simpleton that’s her new alter ego. Where do ypu suppose she got that from. Who in the world is Lady GaGa? I swear these people don’t even think before typing it’s been 12 years and she still arouind killing your favorites.

    Beyonce isnt even considered a top selling artist so how in the heck is she most respected and successful. She doesnt have the success of Mariah Madonna or Celine. Who are top selling and the most successful female artists. Beyonce doesnt set any trends just jacks whoever is fresh hot and new. Ciara Lady Gaga and Rihanna. She needs to start jacking her own blood Solange! Because she isnt that popular and she has a mean creative side which would be a good look for Bey! Diva is the cockiest thing ever. Lyrics, Mannequin in the video her whole demeanor. Thing is she is just jacking numerous of people GRACE JONES Is the Queen of all the Fierceness and Lady Gaga get inspiration from it.I really dont wish success one pure cockiness and that doesnt make me a hater at all. Just a kind hearted Human Being!

    To all the people saying Beyonce copied Ciara bcuz of the matrix move. When did Ciara invent the matrix move. Everyone keeps saying when did beyonce become the first person to do this and the first person to do that. But the question also goes back to your comments. When did Ciara or anybody else become the first people to do what you say Beyonce stole from them. Every idea came from somewhere nowadays hardly anything is original so get over it.

  75. antertain December 24, 2008

    This B vs Ciara ting is sooo DRY!!!
    MJ & Janet J set the trend so that's that!!!!
    Many an artist has use black & white vids & many a dance troop/crew have danced them dances so it jus boring comparing IMO!!!!!

    On 1st viewing i wasn't liking this and was still pissed that this was gonna be the single ahead of EGO but since Diva was already charting in the Billboards i could understand the last min change.
    On 2nd viewing i liked the vid more with the high fashion looks and catchy dance moves that any1 can pick up on.
    Bee not stupid and havin easier moves in this vid makes it fit nicely wen live on tour and 4 other appearances as well as have many fans dancing along 2the moves..

    Sasha looks real s*** in this and although i didn't really like the start and ending i was feeling this video with mad angles, attitude and ego..

    Good Job & there ain't many that work hard like Beyonce so i look 4ward 2the next vids. Maybe Radio or Ego for Sasha Fierce. RADIO will do great in Europe with that sound..

    Damn, U talk’n bout the video don’t make no sense, but it is called DIVA and it is really a good video with the song. It shows high fashion, hardcore great dancing and showing what Beyonce as Sasha Fierce is bringing to the game. I would rather see the video like this instead of being made in a club. Which club videos which are very typical where many artist love to make their videos. Anyways Beyonce keep doing u, and let those Haters. Many of us know that other jealous women going to always have something negative to say when they don’t like seeing another Black woman successful. Just remeber this saying a dog going always want and bark for a bone.

    I’m just laughing at the folks on here that could actually enjoy this video… NOTHING about it was hot….I mean NOTHING. Whilst I hate Beyonce, and this album, it can be easily stated that Single Ladies CRUSHED this video by merely blowing a single breath. That’s not good when your videos can’t stand next to each other. Even the cheaply done B’Day videos were better than this. I feel like she gets a pass due to her name and I just don’t get it…

    Goshh.. people just gotta hate huh..
    The video is HOTTTTT!!!!!!
    Unlike anything out there.

    On the ciara matrix: Beyonce did it on her The Beyonce Experience Tour with Get Me Bodied [the Wind it Back move]

    But why compare bee with cici?

    On the lady gaga: Why is everybody comparing everybody with lady gaga?:S Lady gaga is dooing her thing with the fashion statements and everything.. but that she is wearing something that is fashionable doesn't mean she has the copyright..
    Bee was dooing the shoulderpats thing on her Beyonce Experience Tour.. with the Get me Bodied bee suit in the beginning.. Before anyone ever heard of lady gaga.. & she was wearing them on the EMA's with her Boy performance AND on the tyra banks show with her intervieuw…
    Do ur research first please!

    On the video: LOVVEEE IT! It's totaly Sasha! With the explosion from Crazy in Love, The Fashionista outfits ala Deja Vu & the 2 girl concept from single ladies!!

    Like sam said… for get the hottest chick in the game.. BEYONCE IS THE GAME!

    LADY GAGA has her unique style and was doing it before Beyonce. Beyonce jacked her shoulderpads and her cube hat. About the bee suit she even stole that off KYLIE so she is bites other peoples style and evan STOLE IF I WERE A BOY off a small unknown artist. Where is the recognition when its due???
    I Love Beyonce dont get me wrong.
    Your right about copyrite, however when your as big as you are as an artist its so easy to consume and assimilate other smaller artists around you and chew them up….

    People still on that she stole Ciara thing tip when almost everyone know Ciara stole her whole style from Aaliyah. Wasn’t that always a known fact?Suddenly she sets the standards for Bey to steal from her when she been jacking herself her whole career and even now only 4 years after coming out can barely sell or drop a album SMH. Ciara stans instead of hating go support ya girl and then maybe she can try to get halfway to Bey level. I love the video and I see where she bringing the swag hard. Keep it up Bey these other singers can’t touch you that’s why they stans stay bringing up there names on your post. Merry Christmas haters!

    @9:05 YEAH BC JEAN DID THAT ONLY AFTER BEYONCE STOLE THE SONG. AND THEN BEYONCE HAD TO PAY HER ASS. AND THEY GAVE HER A CONTRACT TO SIGN SAYING THAT SHE COULD NO LONGER SAY BEYONCE STOLE IT AND HOW SHE WAS GRATEFUL THAT BEYONCE WANTED HER SONG. BECASUE REALLY THAT SONG WAS ON BC JEAN’S DEMO THAT SHE WAS FISHING AROUND THAT’S HOW BEYONCE GOT THE SONG. SO PLEASE. AS SOME OF Y’ALL KEEP SAYING BEYONCE IS TO BIG OF AN ARTIST TO BE TAKING PPL S***. THAT JUST SHOWS WHAT KIND OF PERSON SHE REALLY IS. HER DAY IS COMING THOUGH. HATE OR NOT. IT WON’T LAST TO MUCH LONGER.

    ^^^I agree. BC Jean voice cleary fit the song too. I listened to hers over & over yet I only listened to Beyonce's in full once. It just sounded too weird to me, like s*** in her throat or something/bad stinky breath.

    Yall need to kick rocks. Because if Beyonce had stole BC Jean song, I pretty much believe that we all would be hearing about Beyonce getting sued by BC Jean. But thats not true. I’m just going to have to say yall pathetic haters just got to find some way just to hate on Beyonce by saying and making up things that are not even true. BC Jean sold the song to Beyonce which is now Beyonce song. Nasayers really need a life. Bunch lil kids going back and fourth. Dum ass B******.

The hate needs to stop already, we bout to go into the new year of 2009 and this hate still going on. C’MON NOW I KNOW YALL MOTHERS TAUGHT YALL BETTA THAN THAT!

    i have a hard time understanding people on here.. I personally think the video is tight..she’s never done anything like this…i think she’s well aware of what she’s doing…WELL AWARE…all the jackin you say she does ive never heard her deny copying someone so calm down. She kno that’s lil wayne beat..she kno that’s j lo’s dress…shes not an dumb…ya’ll are dumb for crying about it. She just gettin her money..stop hatin. I realllly think that people are jealous cuz she pretty..got talent..and prolly cuz she light skin…man its just like high school for reals…if u can’t have it hate on it right?…besides…there are very few popular black artist that actually have talent…hate all u want you cant deny that she got talent …. so do u Bee.

  124. Anonymous December 31, 2008

    One more thing regarding the copying…i believe we all copy people in our lives whether consciously or not. I do it all the time… if i like a T-shirt somebody else is wearing, if i can find it i will buy it. If i see a dance move i like when i go to the club u best believe im gon be doin it. Or if someone at ur job gets promoted u wanna figure out what they did so u can get ahead too..its part of life. WHO CARES if she copies. cuz all ya’ll do it to.. and if u say u dont, u a lie. She still got talent and more people like her any way cuz she still selling those records. People, keep hatin, but it can only get u so far.

    The mankins are dumb….not feeling the HBCU type dance moves…the best part was the end when the other song came on more diva ish…..she tried too hard……big ups too halo and smash into those are more fierce than the who sasha type music

  126. Dr. Heather January 1, 2009

    I’m sorry, folks, but Diva is trash. I’m a Beyonce fan, and I have to say that I am NOT impressed with her latest offering. I understand that Sasha Fierce is her alter ego, but when will ‘she’ grow up and make songs that match her supposed ‘growth’? These songs feel as though they were made during her Destiny’s Child days.

  127. Cecilia January 23, 2009

    yea uhh…the beat is hot, the lyrics are terrible. A diva is not a hustler..thats just stupid to right, and this video has nothin to do with the song. plus is pretending to smoke hot? what ever. plus the black and white with the three of them was just trying to recreate single ladies video. come on B, i love ya, but this song shows your slacking with the lyrics and your getting a way to big ego,
