  26. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN July 4, 2011

    This probs sounds gay, but the dress looks amazing

  27. I DONT NEED TO ANSWER ANYBODY July 4, 2011

    I swear when this woman made WHO RUN THE WORLD she was giving us hints that she RUNS THIS MUTHA! Ur fav will never! KING B has been out selling S****** since DIL debuted. R**** and Katy are NON MUTHA FACTORS! KING B is sitting pretty up their with the legends like MJ, Whitney, Mariah, Tina, Aretha, Celine and more bwahahhahahahahhahahhaha

  28. HOP-SCOTCH July 4, 2011

    IT’S OFFICIAL…….

    AMERICA HAS SPOKEN…….

    BEYONCE IS A #LIVINGLEGEND…….

    THERE IS A REASON AS TO WHY SHE IS THE 3RD MOST HONOURED WOMAN BY THE “GRAMMY ASSOCIATION” WITH A TOTAL OF…….

    #SIXTEEN AWARDS

    & THE SECOND MOST NOMINATED WOMAN BY THE GRAMMYS WITH A TOTAL OF…….

    #45 NOMINATIONS
    (BEHIND DOLLY PARTON)

    THERE IS A “JUST” REASON AS TO WHY SHE HAS PERFORMED AT THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS EVENT IN SHOWBIZ HISTORY…….

    #THEOSCARS

    AND THERE IS A REASON AS TO WHY SHE WAS CALLED TO PERFORM A SONG AT THE 4TH OF JULY FREWORKS SPECTACULAR!!!

    _____________________________________________________

    #HATERS CAN STAY THE F*** MAD

  29. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) July 4, 2011

    I hope she killed it towards the end of the song *waits patiently

  30. I DONT HAVE TO ANSWER TO ANYBODY July 4, 2011

    @Hop Scotch LMAO U are so rite. The thing about it, is the haters favs like MC, Katy, Riri and Gaga consider KING B a Living Legend, hell Katy and Riri are stans of KING B! Britney consider her a legend but the girl has lost all her marbles. She probably dont know what a legend is.

  31. Cee July 4, 2011

    Beyonce always looks so happy

  32. HOP-SCOTCH July 4, 2011

    @I DONT HAVE TO ANSWER TO ANYBODY!!!

    EXACTLY…….

    LEGENDS OF THE 20TH CENTURY – BARBRA *FUC*ING* STREISAND AND U2 (LONG BEFORE BEYONCE’S PEAK) HAVE CONSIDERED HER TO BE A 21ST CENTURY PRESTIGE!!!

    GAGA ABSOLUTELY ADORES BEYONCE (WHETHER SHE IS LYING OR NOT, THE WORLD THINKS SHE DOES, SO IT DOESN’T MATTER)

    KATY AND RIHANNA HAVE STATED ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS THAT BEYONCE INSPIRED THEM!!!

    EVEN MARIAH CAREY LOVES HER & ENJOYS WATCHING HER!!!

    SHE HAS REVOLUTIONISED URBAN POP MUSIC (AT ITS BEST) AND HAS A STRING OF FOLLOWERS…….

    ________________________________________________________________
    THE HATERS HAVE PERMISSION TO GO AND MASTERBATE WITH AN EPILEPTIC HORSE!!!

  41. jamir21 July 4, 2011

    @ Shesdumb Ughh

  42. I DONT HAVE TO ANSWER TO ANYBODY July 4, 2011

    WTF! No perrylicious and Lacfronce. I guess since its the Fourth of July, they are somewhere getting their ass lit up by somebodys penis. Clearly they are some faggets and whores, that wishes they had KING B body and beauty.

  43. Jamir21 July 4, 2011

    @ I Dont Have To Answer To Anybody I Know right its great they not here now if we only can get rid of Shesdumnb and Skin then we will be okay !

  44. Jamir21 July 4, 2011

    Yay ! No Prettylicious and Fagfronce, now Shesdumb move just go somewhere !

  45. King B July 4, 2011

    It hasn’t aired in my time zone yet, so therefore I won’t watch this video. I prefer to be surprised.

    @ Daniel:

    There’s nothing gay about taking notice of someone’s appearance.

  46. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN July 4, 2011

    @King B I was talking about the dress, not the person wearing it though, so really i was talking about an item of clothing

  47. King B July 4, 2011

    @ Daniel:

    That’s what I meant. Clothes, hairstyles, etc. are a part of personal appearance.

    Still, I can’t imagine why it would be considered “gay” to compliment someone’s dress.

  48. Onyx July 4, 2011

    i’m proud to be an american, but i’m not a beyonce fan

  49. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN July 4, 2011

    @King B Well, in the uk, it wouldnt look good, if you made a comment about a girls dress, its not exactly manly, maybe gay is the world wrong.. probs more like girly.

  50. stewie July 4, 2011

    @SKIN. must be a total dickhead to not realize something is up with rihanma skin look at her video when she first came out & look at her now o.O

  51. ISTANN4GAGA July 4, 2011

    lol pass that to all the beyonce haters lolol…..

  52. Anne July 4, 2011

    I love her version of this song. Sounds beautiful, I’ll be tuning in for a great performance as usual.

  53. King B July 4, 2011

    @ Daniel:

    That’s just utter stupidity… only guys have these kinds of hang-ups.

  54. KAT DELUNA FAN July 4, 2011

    Cant wait for the full performance…Go Queen B !

  55. VA STAND UP!! July 4, 2011

    Well this was pretty short but from what we saw she killed it. I really liked her version of “God Bless America’ . She added her own swag to it without over singing or taking the meaning away from the song.

    I don’t like the dress at all though. It’s too frumpy looking on her. The necklace & earrings don’t go with the dress at all. The whole outfit looks cheap like something you would get from Body Central or some s***. I’m use to the hair at this point but Bey really needs to step her style game up. SMH.

  56. queenbey will always s*** on ur fave and leave them no option but 2 pout July 5, 2011

    NBC has the longest f***** commercials

  57. ISTANN4GAGA July 5, 2011

    @Hop-Scotch…..

    Gaga genuinely adores Beyonce lol…..
    Who else’s fave brought beyonce a Birthday Present lol????

  58. queenbey will always s*** on ur fave and leave them no option but 2 pout July 5, 2011

    QUEENBEY sounded amazing and she looked wonderful……..proud to be in The USA 🙂

  59. King B July 5, 2011

    @ IStan4Gaga:

    What birthday present?

  60. SHESDUMB July 5, 2011

    JUST WATCHED HER SING PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN, AND IT SEEMED AS IF SHE STRUGGLED. THE SONG ISNT AS OPEN AND FREE LIKE WHAT SHE NORMALLY SINGS, SO SHE WAS RESTRICTED FROM OVERSINGING,GROWLING AND YODELING. THEREFORE SHE DID WELL.

  61. queenbey will always s*** on ur fave and leave them no option but 2 pout July 5, 2011

    Am I da only one who noticed QUEENBEY has a tattoo on her left ring finger???

  62. Jamir21 July 5, 2011

    @ shesdumb Awww thats so nice of you to say that about Beyonce !

  63. SHESDUMB July 5, 2011

    @JAMIR21

    I ALWAYS COMPLIMENT ON BEYAWNCE WHEN SHE DOES GOOD, OR PERFORMS GOOD. IT’S HER DELUDED MEAN FANS I DISLIKE.

  64. queenbey will always s*** on ur fave and leave them no option but 2 pout July 5, 2011

    @SHESDUMB- Muthafuckin YAWN!!!!!! Ur comments are becoming redundant!!!! Can u plz go back to browsing other websites and come up with some new jokes jokes????

  65. DC3BKM AKA XEMA, DILLA, BEYODEL & FEMMEFATALEBARBX’S OWNER July 5, 2011

    @ shesdumb

    I ALWAYS COMPLIMENT ON BEYAWNCE WHEN SHE DOES GOOD, OR PERFORMS GOOD. IT’S HER DELUDED MEAN FANS I DISLIKE.

    Well why do u come in to posts where u r sure to find them? Doesn’t make any sense…

  66. queenbey will always s*** on ur fave and leave them no option but 2 pout July 5, 2011

    I just kno NBC isnt playing da same 1 hour special dat just went off

  67. Harlem July 5, 2011

    The Beyonce haters are funny,….too funny……..

  68. ISTANN4GAGA July 5, 2011

    @King B lolol Gaga brought Beyonce a diamond studded whip for beyonce last year.

  69. SHESDUMB July 5, 2011

    @queenbey will always s*** on ur fave and leave them no option but 2 pout

    B**** STFU. THE ONLY REASON WHY THEY SEEM REDUNDANT IS BECAUSE A LOONEY LIKE U ONLY FOCUSES ON ONE PART OF THE COMMENT WHICH IS MY GRAVATAR NAME.

    @DC3BKM
    I DONT ALWAYS BE ON BEYAWNCE POSTS, JUST THE INTERESTING ONES THAT I HAVE AN OPINION ABOUT. MAYBE U AND THE REST OF THE LOONEYS SHOULD CALM DOWN TOO?

    BTW………PRINCE GOT A OSCAR, DOES BEYAWNCE?

  70. SHESDUMB July 5, 2011

    JUST BECAUSE THESE LOONEYS LURK ON EVERY BEYAWNCE POST DOES NOT MEAN I SHOULD FREIGHT AND BE AFRAID OF COMMENTING. IM GOING TO SAY WHAT I WANT ON THIS BLOG AND DEFEND MY STATEMENT. IF YOU DONT LIKE IT, THEN TAKE YOUR ASS DOWN TO BEYAWNCE WORLD.

  71. queenbey will always s*** on ur fave and leave them no option but 2 pout July 5, 2011

    @H** UR SO DUMB- B**** PLZ!!!! U say da SAME S*** ON EVERY F***** POST ‘Beyawnce growls, she yodels, she gruts’ which are ALL REmuthafuckinDUNDANT!!!!
    And who cares Prince ass have an oscar??? Have he ever performed there???? HELL F*** NO!!!

  72. SHESDUMB July 5, 2011

    @QUEENBEY WILL NEVER GET AN OSCAR.

    I SAY THE SAME THING? WELL MAYBE IT’S TRUE. YOUR TOO DELUDED TO ACCEPT THE TRUTH SO YOU CALL ME A DUMB B****, OR A HATER.
    PRINCE IS A MUSIC ARTIST. THE OSCARS ARE FOR ACTORS. WHILE BEYAWNCE IS SWEATING TO IMPRESS THE OSCAR PEOPLE, PRINCE WALKED UP ON THE STAGE,AND ACCEPTED HIS OSCAR LIKE A BOSS.

  73. jamir21 July 5, 2011

    @ shesdumb OMG i`m so sorry I didnt mean to but I do got to say her fans are bit crazy !

  74. ISTANN4GAGA July 5, 2011

    @Queenbey….that’s her ring tattoo(her+camel have matching IV ring tattoos)

  75. queenbey will always s*** on ur fave and leave them no option but 2 pout July 5, 2011

    @ISTAN4GAGA- I knew I wasnt crazy, Ive been seeing it for a while now- damn she is really secretive and dats a good thing
