Beyonce Breaks New Glastonbury Festival Record

Published: Friday 1st Jul 2011 by David

The last few days has seen the world gripped by Beyonce mania. With her new album set to top charts all around the world this coming week, the starlet has further cause to celebrate now that she has broken another record.

This time,  at the Glastonbury Festival, where she performed at last week.

Find out what she has achieved below…

In a survey carried out by Digital Spy, the entertainer was named Glastonbury’s favourite act by the festival’s viewers.

Making her the only female artist in the history of the event to achieve this feat adding to the record she holds for being the first female artist to headline the world renowned festival.

Nabbing a commendable 43.6% of the vote, the ‘Best Thing I Never Had’ performer beat rock legends ColdPlay and U2 to the top post.

It seems that once again Mrs.Carter unlike many of her chart sisters, has proven talent is her greatest asset.

Let us hope the promotional whirlwind that ‘4’ has generated in the last week translates into the record’s success in the long term.

    Talent is her greatest asset. Intelligence will never be! and somehow that’s okay. She is just basic basic basic! Her next award should be in the form of a dictionary, thesaurus, spelling and grammer book!

  21. Misses Moo July 1, 2011

    She’s pretty and talented but That Grape Juice is starting to become a Beyonce fan site. If people wanted news pretty much just on Beyonce alone they’d head over to Beyonce.com. This isn’t a fan site so why are there such excessive posts on one artists? It’s overkill!

  22. carl July 1, 2011

  39. james July 1, 2011

    .to all the haters in this post just incase you start throwing shade abouit her saying she said she was creating a new genre… Read what she actuallly said.. THANKS …

    She later clarified the statement, “Well, I wouldn’t say I’m inventing a new genre. I’m mixing every type of genre that I love and I’m inspired by every type of genre…I’m not putting myself in a box. It’s not R&B, it’s not typically pop, it’s not rock – it’s just everything I love mixed together

  40. bey’knight July 1, 2011

    @truciebedford

    you are so plain right now, your words are so stale but guess what only u have to live with the bitterness, certainly not beyonce or her fans

    @ICON
    hey sweety i dunno if u saw my response in the other post, my favs from 4 are end of time and love on top, urs?

    @royalkev
    i didnt expect any less but it’s glasto-goers,they barely check for pop acts. i dont think its possible for beyonce to not put on an above par performance, even in her weakest days, her presence alone goes the mile

  41. NICK July 1, 2011

    BESIDED HER OBVIOUS TALENT & HER BEIN AMAZING LIVE…THE REASON SHE IS SO SUCCESSFUL, IS B/C OF HER WARM, LOVING KIND WAYS—GOD IS POURING HIS BLESSINGS ON HER…..

  42. bey’knight July 1, 2011

    this is not about sales or about her album its about her performance at glasto and she killed it. end of. of course

    haters u clearly have nothin significant to say on that so kindly click on the next post, am sure u all love alicia

  43. queenbey will always s*** on ur fave and leave them no option but 2 pout July 1, 2011

    QUEENBEY killed her GMA performance, she had to wait for atleast 2 minites before she could start performing bcuz the crowd keep screaming.
    *patiently waiting for Sam to post the video so the haters can can get mad/irrate AGAIN*

  44. King B July 1, 2011

    HAAAAAAAA!!!!! All the music snobs who kept putting her down, I wonder how they feel knowing this?

    And I KNOW the haters will just about spontaneously combust with this news!

  45. ISTANN4GAGA July 1, 2011

    Guys,I think I saw Nicky on the Queen of Pop post…..I thought it was gone for good…

  46. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) July 1, 2011

    Good 4 her…But this is not a record…this was a SURVEY. @TGJ staff, you’d better put the stan inside you to sleep and be objective.Btw, no hate there, I think that she had indeed one of the best setlists ever at Glasto, so the result is fair IMO.I just don’t see it as a record that she’s broken or even an noteworthy achievement (how do we know how many participated -maybe less than 100- and how many times each voted)

  47. Royalkev July 1, 2011

    @Bey’Knight – True, it’s an honor and most music buff’s probably wanted this to be out of her league. We all know what Bey has in store for the naysayers though … Exactly!

  48. TYLER July 1, 2011

    It cracks me up of the Hate that you people throw!!!!!!

    RIHANNA WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO ACHIEVE 50% of Beyonce sucess!!!! NEVER!!!!!!!!
    Just accpet that s***!!!

    Just suck that s*** in and accept the fate!

    weather you want to Breath it in!!!!!

    just know in your mind and in your heart that Rihanna will NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER be as big as Beyonce! and will never win as many awards, or even be remembered as a living legend! neither will Britney or Katy stupid ass lame ass Perry!!!!!

    Only on that can compete with her in that aspect is GaGa…. thats it…….

    Tell your faves to enjoy the Forecloser that there homes are sure to be in…..

    *Plays Rihanna’s Rated R album………. seeing I was 1 of the 2 people that bought it* LMFAO!!!!!!!

  49. Kina July 1, 2011

  50. JohnVidal July 1, 2011

    Congrats to Beyonce!
    But please how is that a record??? Do TGJ know the meaning of that word??? LOLOL

  51. BEYitchStopHating July 1, 2011

    I love beyonce as an ARTIST, PERFORMER, and BUSINESS WOMAN….Managing herself and still SMASHING THE GAME (PERIOD).

    And to all those that have a problem with THATGRAPEJUICE.NET, why the F*ck are you still visiting the site and taking your precious little time to comment on every single post????? Sam and his staff do a great job with their BLOG site………last time I checked, Blogs are just that, a place where you share your opinion and allow others to do the same. The reason why there are so many BEYONCE post is because she CAN’T be Stopped….If it were another artist out there reaching the level(S) of success as she IS and doing as much as she does you would see more posts about them….but since they are not why not post for those who are always relevant to what is currently going on. None of the posts about BEYONCE are a repeat of something already posted on the site and that’s because she is always working to better herself. She said it herself: “There’s PLENTY of people who don’t like me, but ten times more that LOVE me and I love MYSELF!!” Others HIGHLY RESPECTED in the music Industry that have much more musical experience and expertise than any of us have given BEYONCE so much respect where she deserves it so I think that speaks for itself. Create your OWN BLOG if its such a problem and try to avoid posting about BEYONCE and see how successful you are with it. No one is perfect and that’s what you HATERS all are waiting for from BEYONCE…..Its not gonna happen but how can you knock her for her HUSTLE???

    WHEN IS UR ALBUM COMING OUT????? OH, OKAY.

    I LOVE BEYONCE FOR HER WORK ETHIC and I Love THATGRAPEJUICE.NET for keeping us all current and up to date with what is going on in the ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY!!! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK SAM and staff….YOU KNOW YOU ARE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT IF YOUR HATERS KEEP GROWNING!!!!!

    #IMOUT!

  52. Bobby Bulgaria July 1, 2011

    So what kind of a “record” is this…???
    Pfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff

    This blog holds the RECORD for Baaayonce’s ass-licking… Ha ha ha

  53. King B July 1, 2011

    @ John Vidal:

    How is it not a record? Unless you can prove that Bey is NOT the first female artist to achieve this at Glastonbury, how is TGJ wrong for calling it a record? I think you’re the one who doesn’t know the meaning of the word if you’re attempting to challenge it.

    If it this were Gaga or Mariah, no complaints from your biased ass.

  54. King B July 1, 2011

    @ Bobby Bulgaria:

    Do you have nothing better to do than to waste your time hating on people? Shouldn’t you be in a Mariah forum or something?

  55. BEYITCHSTOPHATING July 1, 2011

    For those who don’t think its a record, check some of the things that are in the Guinness book of world records……any year you want to choose…….#ijs

  56. Bobby Bulgaria July 1, 2011

    @ King B:

    Oh, is this a Baaa-yonce forum or something…?

    Sure, it looks like one… But I’m gonna change that… 🙂

  57. YeaBey July 1, 2011

    Yup Breaking Records LEFT, RIGHT AND CENTER ….deal!

  58. JohnVidal July 1, 2011

    @King B
    I was not biased on what I said and I have been very respectful with Beyonce these last two weeks of promotion on the few posts I´ve commented, so relax. I´ve been just giving my opinion and for the most part giving her credit for doing her thing.
    But calling this a record is really delusional. That is not a record. Could you imagine how many records we could start to bring on here for every single artist if we call a record to every accomplishment an artist achieves? I mean even Kesha would have lots of records lol This was a great thing for her but it was a survey, not a record.
    And yes Mariah has so many records on lock it´s not even funny. But I didn´t mention her this time at all 🙂

  67. LACEFRONCE. THE USER FORMELY KNOWN AS BEYAKI. July 1, 2011

    Who cares? Her album is still a flop with 300,000 sold in the first week at BEST according to numerous sources including one posted here on TGJ.

    BLEACHonce=done

  68. Jasmine July 1, 2011

    She is also the first black person to headline that show. I’m happy for Beyonce and I am looking forward to buying my concert tickets when she comes to NYC.

  69. Bbbbbbb July 2, 2011

    @TRUCIEBEDFORD …. Learn some Spelling and then come talk about others. Its GRAMMAR not grammer 🙂 dumb people shud be arrested.com

  70. Beyonce is the Queen! July 2, 2011

    @LACEFRONCE. THE USER FORMELY KNOWN AS BEYAKI.

    300,000 for first-week sales is not a flop you stupid. Plus the album will debut at number one.

  71. nice_gurl July 2, 2011

    She did an amazing job at Glastonbury. Especially ‘If I Were A Boy’, ‘Beautiful Ones & S** On Fire’ and ‘1+1’.
    I can’t believe that she had the highest vote on the survey for best performance, when most people go to Glastonbury to watch rock bands. A female hasn’t headlined Glastonbury for twenty years and there has never been an african american woman headlining there. And she was asked to perform there. These are some great achievements.

  72. sdrawkcaB July 2, 2011

    she’s proved the theory of ‘practice makes perfect’ … she’s practiced entertainment her whole life, nd look where she is……..ppl say she was allways destined for greatness, b*******…. if she took her foot of the gas pedal, she would be where she is today!
