Spin Magazine Hail Beyonce As ‘Greatest Performer Of Her Generation”

Published: Wednesday 30th May 2012 by David

If this week has taught us anything, it’s that not even a 10 month hiatus could dim the Pop light that is Beyonce.

Heralded for her sell out performances at New Jersey‘s ‘Revel Resorts‘, the last few days have seen the singer/songwriter praised (very publicly) by long time friend The Dream and US First Lady Michelle Obama, both of whom were in attendance at the shows.

Now it’s Spin‘s turn to get into the action.

Find out why they’ve called star the ‘greatest performer of her generation’ below…

Spin Magazine:

In 2011, Beyoncé put out a No. 1 album, shot and released a live DVD, and nearly broke the Internet by announcing her pregnancy, so performing four Memorial Weekend concerts can’t even jokingly be considered a comeback.

Only three months passed between the birth of her daughter with Jay-Z, Blue Ivy Carter, and Beyoncé‘s announcement that she’d be returning to the stage at the opening of Atlantic City’s lux Revel resort and casino — three years separated her debut solo album Dangerously in Love and its follow-up B’Day.

But stakes are so high in diva-dom these days, nobody can afford to take a breather. B dropped last year’s 4 in the height of Lady Gaga domination; now the music biz is tethered to Adele‘s ruptured vocal cord,Britney‘s serving as a judge rather than facing one, Madonna is starting a world tour, Katy Perry is a divorcee, and Rihanna won’t stop patting her crotch on TV.

But the difference between Beyoncé and all those other (legally, for now!) single ladies is black and white, which is exactly the color palate she chose to employ at her Revel shows. Beyoncéis the greatest performer of her generation and she knows it well. Her Revel concerts were more Liza With a Z than MTV — predicated on nothing but the tour de force of its creator. Saturday night’s two-hour show featured no gimmicks, no backing tracks, no hard-to-follow narratives, no whipped cream cannons. It was old school Vegas-style Entertainment with a capital E: singing, dancing, and charisma wrapped up in a few sparkly Ralph & Russo outfits.

Beyoncé entered larger than life as a center-stage shadow ordering the 5,500-strong crowd (with special guests Michelle, Sasha, and Malia Obama in box seats) to “stand up on your feet” for 4‘s “End of Time” and quickly demonstrated her voice and hips are as limber as ever.

Flanked by her 11-piece all-female band, a corps of 10 dancers, and a few cleverly deployed LED screens flashing blocks of black and white and dizzying geometric patterns, Beyoncédevoted the first part of her set to light-hearted uptempos: “Love on Top,” “Get Me Bodied,” “Baby Boy.”

After her first costume-change break, she returned for a trio of numbers that paid homage to Vegas cabaret chic, breaking out fluffy feathered fans for a “Naughty Girl” that included a tribute to Donna Summer’s “Love to Love You Baby.” But the party didn’t last, and she soon slipped into a series of earnest ballads, singing “1 + 1″ perched on her knees atop a grand piano after admonishing the front rows not to scuffle over a perspiration-covered souvenir:

“Okay, listen, don’t fight over this towel — it’s just a towel.”

 

We all know how it feels to be hurt and lied to,” Beyoncé insisted, asking the ladies to help her sing “If I Were a Boy” seamlessly mashed up with a bit of the Goo Goo Dolls’ “Iris.” The women belted even louder on her cover of Lauryn Hill‘s “Ex-Factor,” though, which served as an unfortunate reminder of how genius can go awry.

But right now Beyoncé is owning her brilliance like a boss. The Revel show highlighted how she’s become an accomplished multi-instrumentalist — her arsenal includes her powerhouse voice, her toned thighs, her whipping hair, her Vaudevillia

The lovefest was swiftly supplanted by the jilted-lover part of the set. “n eyes, and of course, her wind machine. And now she’s become even more adept at playing our emotions, too, eliciting Beatlemania screeches by revealing a mere glimpse of Blue Ivy during a video montage. She’s unlocked the secret to balancing her super-human talent with über-humanizing rhetoric like another megastar who only requires one name: Oprah.

As the night progressed, Beyoncé‘s strict black-and-white aesthetic began to slip, and in the set’s final frames, the LED screens flashed blinding walls of color heralding the arrival of “Countdown” like the conclusion of The Wizard of Oz. The swaggy march of “Run the World (Girls),” led into a funky version of “Why Don’t You Love Me,” then B hit the reset button again, returning for her Whitney Houston tribute “I Will Always Love You” dressed in red.

She wrapped, of course, with her ultimate razzle-dazzle, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It),” and a series of earnest thank yous — to her band, her dancers, her crew (“It’s very hard working for me because I want things perfect for y’all”), and to Revel “for building a place for all of us on the East Coast to go have a good time.” That’s entertainment, folks. In AC, the lady is a tramp, and this showgirl’s a business, woman.

Great read.

Echoing sentiments by many of her ‘Hive’, articles like these can’t but reaffirm what most of us already know.

However, it is worth asking:

Why is it Beyonce and not the likes of Rihanna and GaGa to be awarded titles like these?

    I am not a Beyonce supporter but I can admit that she is the best performer out there currently. She does not have competition when it comes to live performances.

    • mobwife May 30, 2012

      Yes, very few FEMALE acts can touch her! Beyonce is a hell of a performer. In the past we had Madonna, Janet Jackson and a host of lesser known acts who danced but today Bey stands alone!

      However, I do find it funny when she does what these fools call LIP SYNCING (which it isn’t, she is singing LIVE LEAD VOCALS over a backtrack) it’s never highlighted or called out by Spin Mag, GMA or the rest of the VILLIAGE IDIOTS! humm….biased, money, Illuminati connections? I’m not sure! Anyway good for her although Spin Mag is a just a boot-leg RS Mag!

      • nibbibu May 30, 2012

        Thank you for that info.

  2. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! May 30, 2012

    Agree

    • Oh Baby(B****** Will Deal) May 30, 2012

      yes yes and yes! and the praises just keep pouring in….ahhh Beyonce Giselle “BebeJuju” Knowles Carter,I live for your live performances and music. Last Saturday i received my LIFE at that show! Thank you MOTHERYONCE! Stan for life!

  3. virtuoso intellect May 30, 2012

    BOSS!

    PS: im not here for the haters’ lamentations today so im gonna skip past the meltdowns if u dont mind.

    • POP ROYALTY ( Révolution) May 30, 2012

      the same here , i’m not here for it.

      beyonce is the baddest and they know it.

      and sam clearly is thirsty for those hits to the point he keep repeating the same exact formula to get hits,
      not today.

  4. Freddy May 30, 2012

    “….and Rihanna won’t stop patting her crotch on TV.” SHADE!

    • Oh Baby(B****** Will Deal) May 30, 2012

      lol,i actually laughed out loud at that one 😀 tihi

  5. mediacannibale May 30, 2012

    WE DOn’T CARE

    STOP PROMOTING

    IT’S TOO DESPERATE

    SHE’s SO OVER.

  6. Luv1Another May 30, 2012

    That title seems more appropriate.
    She is the greatest performer of “her generation”, rather than of all time.
    She is well on her way to achieve greatness that will surpass her lifetime and be known as a legend if she continues her hard work ethic. I don’t think she’s there yet, I see a lot more potential in her than what people are saying, she’s going to top herself and earn the queen title. You all just wait and see, that was just the begining: wine and cheese taste great when it’s aged, same said for woman. Just wait till Beyonce ages a bit more and she’ll be everything and more.

    • LIFE May 31, 2012

      do you know how many names (artists) are in bey’s generation?

  7. DaInquisition May 30, 2012

    Here’s a better question…….Why are u trying to stir up a stan war?
    Let Beyonce have her moment and leave Rihanna and others out of it.

  8. LIFE May 30, 2012

    IT’S SO TRUE. NOBODY CAN PERFORM TO BEY’S LEVEL’S!!! HONESTLY SHE IS THE BEST – & MUSIC IS ALL ABOUT LIVE SOUND. F–K A STUDIO

  9. RihannasHairFlick May 30, 2012

    As a performer I’ll be the first to admit that Beyonce’s skills are unmatched by any of her competition, but that’s as far as her talent goes.

    She’s unoriginal and has proved she has an acute mental disorder, because only someone with a mental disorder can steal the melody to someone’s song and then sue that person for sueing you. Can you say Jennifer Armour?

    Second of all, her videos are garbage and are about as interesting as watching as watching Tina Knowles count the money she DIDN’T make from that rancid clothing line they keep pushing.

    Madonna is the greatest performer of her generation because of her creativity and longeitivity. I cant see Beyonce’s videos being admired in ten or fifteen years time, can you?

    • QueenOfTheNavy May 30, 2012

      Lest we forget she’s still waiting to be taken to court by the video games company.
      SHADE HEIFFA SHADE.

      • SMH June 1, 2012

        $100 million dollars to be exact!

    • ty May 30, 2012

      madonna can only be compared to her peers and beyonce is not her peer their not of the same generation and there’s no one other than lady gaga who does original videos post 2000 as for music even ur faves music is redundent and the same as everyone else s*** out there but u best believe beyonce will be remembered for her performances in ten years time

    • Auntie_Jackie May 30, 2012

      I think Madonna is awesome, but performer of ALL time? Not so much. She’s great at pushing boundaries, she’s very original and smart. A better comparison for Beyonce is Tina Turner, not Madge.

    • REAL LIFE May 30, 2012

      Madonna was sued over 15 times for plagiarism and stealing video concepts… She’s the biggest thief in music history… LOOK IT UP…

      Madonna can’t dance, sing, or perform…

      Janet drags her constantly…

      Beyonce drags her constantly…

      IM NOT HERE FOR B*******…

      AND P.S. THAT UNORIGINAL B**** NAMED MADONNA HAS NEVER MADE A CENT OFF OF “JUSTIFY MY LOVE” BECAUSE SHE STOLE IT FROM PUBLIC EMENY AND THAT MAKE ALL THAT MONEY FROM IT…

      • Qazzo May 30, 2012

        @REAL LIFE:
        Madonna is cited by Billboard and Guinness as most successful female artist of all time…has sold more records/albums than any other female…holds the record for most successful solo tour…is in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame…and is the richest woman in music.

        ****NOBODY**** drags her.

        BTW, she didn’t steal “Justify My Love” from Public Enemy, you dunce. She used the same sample that they used from a song that was originally recorded by James Brown.

        Seriously, shut up. You’re sound dumb.

      • REAL LIFE May 31, 2012

        Dumb ass look it up… She stole the beat from Public Enemy… Moron…

        That old ass c*** is a f****** thief… F*** you mean…

        Sued 15 times for plagiarism alone…

        B**** been stealing other people video concepts since day one… B**** I have my receipts… You’re just talking out your ass…

    • James_9481 May 31, 2012

      The article was just about Beyonce’s performance ability..

      But now that you bring it up, yeah i can see Single Ladies video being admired for like…. ever?

    • Qazzo May 31, 2012

      @REAL LIFE:
      You’re an abortion that didn’t take. Seriously, were you born stupid or did someone drop you on your head? You have no receipts, fool, the only thing you have are two lone marbles rolling around in that empty tin can head of yours. You’re like a 3-legged jackass, somebody needs to put your lame ass out of your misery.

      To reiterate for your dumb ass…Madonna is the most successful female artist to ever step foot into a recording store or on a stage. Billboard and Guinness are my receipts, Corky. No female artist has EVER been anywhere near as successful as her, and very few men have, and no one ever will be after her.

      Null and void on everything you just said. Now go flush your head down the toilet with the rest of the s***, you walking turdstick, you.

      • Uhh Okaii May 31, 2012

        but why you mad though??

  10. Mabs May 30, 2012

    Wow today, you really lived up to your name :)… Do it more often… Anyways I agree with the article 110%. If you see her live infront of your eyes, as opposed on tv.. She is more amplified, this show was the ABSOLUTE BEST!!!!!

  11. Auntie_Jackie May 30, 2012

    Come on now. TGJ is fishing for hits. Beyonce is the best performer of her generation. FACT.

    The best of all time–no. But Lady Gaga, RIhanna, Katy Perry are not to be mentioned in the same sentence with her. It’s an established thing.

  12. Jon May 30, 2012

    Beyoncè is a legend pure and simple, she will go down in history as THEE greatest female performer that has ever lived. STOP COMPARING HER TO PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT EVEN WORTHY OF LACING HER DIAMOND LEOTARD…. all hail the queen!

    • Auntie_Jackie May 30, 2012

      Um, see, this is why I just CAN’T. She’s the greatest of her generation. Not of all time!

      • Girrrl May 30, 2012

        Exactly, she just updated Tina Turner’s style. If anything TIna is best female performer because she laid the groundwork for those who followed.

  13. John92 May 30, 2012

    She is! she may not always have the best songs (single ladies, freakum dress…) but the way she performs is incredible!

  14. Mess May 30, 2012

    What happened to the gravatars?

    • BC (@BeyFan3000) May 30, 2012

      idk, cant tell u guys apart

      • Mess May 30, 2012

        It kills the comment section.

  15. BC(@BeyFan3000) May 30, 2012

    Great read about Beyonce, i admire how she really takes time to perfect her work. It’s never sloppy or half done, its always put together nicely. I feel like when she sings i can connect to it even though i may not have experienced that situation. great work once again B

  16. Blackman May 30, 2012

    She gave them cash to say it

    • POP ROYALTY ( Révolution) May 30, 2012

      pressed much ?

      • alonzo wilson May 30, 2012

        Shut the f*** see that is why beyonce always wins because she is the queen and she don’t have time for nonsense like your dumb ass

  17. KIMBERLY May 30, 2012

    What’s new it was proven years ago. This is just a repeat and a reminder from a magazine and many other sources.

  18. MISHKA May 30, 2012

    “Why is it Beyonce and not the likes of Rihanna and GaGa to be awarded titles like these?”

    *DEAD*

    This is why I love to come here , TGJ, you never lose focus and you keep the business going. That’s precisely what Queen Bey does too. She’s consistently the best.

    • Oh Baby(B****** Will Deal) May 30, 2012

      lmao,i heavily concur!

  19. Benron May 30, 2012

    What sort of magizine is this? Read “Madonna is starting a world tour, Katy Perry is a divorcee, and Rihanna won’t stop patting her crotch on TV”
    3 very unresonable things, just because madonna is touring doesent mean she cant make music (see Rihanna’s 3rd, 5th and 6th albums, HECK Her 5th she was filming battleship at the same time as touring and recording.)

    What is with the Katy perry comment, just because she is divorced she cannot make music, none of these minor things hinder people. (Except Beyonce’s “10 month HIATUS” due to her (pregnancy stunt to gain sales of 4, which talk that talk just outsould worldwide.) “Babies/”pregnancies can stop you when they r real.

    Beyonce is the best performer nowadays but her fans are vicous and come at the throats of anyone, including this site, and this magizine, nobody is tryna replace Beyonce, copy Beyonce or do anything, Why must they always vicously seperate her from others.

    Oh and P.s, the only reason Rihanna is “patting her crotch on t.v.” (which was one time, and Beyonce has doen it b4 two so…) is because it gets her so much coverage and dumbasses cover it in there magizines and sites as teh yharp on about her and give her so much attention!

    • BC (@BeyFan3000) May 30, 2012

      BENRON
      yes the magazine was very misleading. only thing is it mentioned nothing about Rihanna’s sales. TTT selling more proves nothing TBH

    • Oh Baby(B****** Will Deal) May 30, 2012

      when did TTT outsell “4” though…i need those receipts,and please not media traffic and their fake ass numbers! last time i checked,TTT was flopping harder than a Keri Hilson album! and weren’t you Rihanna stans saying TTT would sell more than 1mill in under 6 months in the U.S alone and thus besting Beyonce’s 4’s achievement but TTT is still sitting at just over 800k,please lets stop the delusion!

      • Benron May 30, 2012

        Um, @chartnews on twitter posted that While Rihanna sits at 2,675,00 Beyonce trails at 2,600,000 I can understand it, but for such an obnoxious fanbase its funny!

      • ohreally May 31, 2012

        If these numbers are true, which I kind of believe, Rihanna numbers were high overseas because she was on tour when the album dropped not to mention she keeps going over there doing promo for everything, one min its that FLOP ass battleship, then she will “perform” a song. So it sounds right, but this just proves the NAVY is filled with damn liars, @Teacher said this flop as album was certified platinum in April, here we are June and I have yet to see a certification, and the other lies saying this album was knocking on 3mil WW.

    • zania May 30, 2012

      The reason why this magazine mention them, because all of those artist outsold Beyonce and slaughters her on the charts. By Jay paying the magazine to uplift Beyonce performances to downplay all the artist who are doing better than she. She still won’t out sell Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, or Rihanna. So they can put as many artlcles out how great she is at performing, it still won’t help her sales. Trying to convince the public that she is better than Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Madonna and Rihanna.

  20. StadiumsBitches May 30, 2012

    Don’t you ever put Lady Gaga’s name in the same sentence with R******.

    • Oh Baby(B****** Will Deal) May 30, 2012

      true,coz i actually like gaga too,the b**** may be weird,but she has the TALENT to back it up! so GaGa trumps R**** and all the other girls apart from BeBe homemaker ofcourse. She’s second only to mamayonce.

    • Teacher May 30, 2012

      Man Haha is a copycat flop!

    • ohreally May 31, 2012

      DEAD at the Navy calling gaga a flop. In 3 albums she has nearly done what it took Rihanna to do with 6, plus Gaga has a 100plus mil tour and currently on another one…Let’s see Gaga:3 successful albums, 2 successful tours—-Rihanna 2 ½ out of 6 successful albums, and 1 out of 3 successful tours…and copying Rihanna has jacked everyone down to Ronald McDonald and Cassie and been sued so let’s not do the copy thing.

  21. OpD2 May 30, 2012

    the first 1# is MJ and the second #2 is beyonce,MJ died so now Beyonce stands alone she is the best,no one out there is f-cking with bay.

  29. David May 30, 2012

    It’s Beyonce!!!!! What else can you say. SHE IS THE LEADER of this generation….

  30. PrettigurlrockD May 30, 2012

    People need to realize beyonce has the total package. She’s not everyone’s taste but that woman can entertain live! I’ve seen mostly all her shows and they are amazing. I’ve seen mj’s performances and they r very good too. Ppl have to accept her skills are up there with the best. She has massive TALENT and ambition that makes her succeed. I don’t think I’ve seen one bad performance from beyonce. She always delivers and is never lazy! Ppl should be proud we have a living legacy amongst us for future generations to always strive for greatness and these lackluster performers out here to step their game up.

  31. White girl mob May 30, 2012

    Who much money did jay-z give Michelle obama to say she wants to be like beyonce huh?? Can ya beehives answer that huh??

    How much money did jay-z pay spin magazine to say this?? Huh?? Answer that beehives..

  32. alonzo wilson May 30, 2012

    RIHANNA CAN’T SING SHE MAKE PARTY SONG AND LADY GAGA SCARED ALOT OF PEOPLE WITH HER MUSIC

  33. Brea May 30, 2012

    Beyonce and Gaga are the two best performers right now. Their competition is weak. Beyonce gets points for dance and energy while Gaga gets points for musicianship. I like how the writer dumped on katy perry–I think she’s garbage. I still think MJ was the best ever. In his generation, it’s MJ first, Prince second, and Madonna a distant third for me.

    • alonzo wilson May 30, 2012

      hell to the no you will not lady gaga is not a great performer i don’t see she droping it like it hot on swinging in the hair and dancing really fast like beyonce so stop puting them in the same sentence beyonce does sing and dance

  34. @teamfoxydondiva May 30, 2012

    does beyonce live vocals at the end of crazy in love “bon bon ba bon bon your love whewwwwwww* dances twists lol.. Beyonce is simply the greatest and what makes her the best is that she doesnt have to be a w**** for attention . Make pop gimmick songs and she will always be the queen!!!! #deal

    • nibbibu May 30, 2012

      That is why she marries Jay-Z to do that for her.

  35. Girrrl May 30, 2012

    I think Usher is just as good as her. Wonder why he’s not talked about more when we talk about performers of this generation.

    • alonzo wilson May 30, 2012

      usher don’t dance like he use too

    • nibbibu May 30, 2012

      Because he does not have the status like she does. Its funny what the right connection can do. B is married to jay-Z fro a reason.

    • Stephen May 31, 2012

      He can dance better than her but can’t sing better than her

  36. geeeeeesssss May 30, 2012

    yasssssss
    u
    BETTTAAAAAAAAAAAA

  37. youdorealize… May 30, 2012

    Beyonce has been the greatest since the days of DIL! When rihanna tries she’s good. Not a beyonce by any means but she devent. GAGA really shouldn’t get any shade thrown at her because even though she’s not as good as bey doesn’t mean she’s bad. I love bey so much. END OF TIME & SCHOOLIN’ LIFE END THE ERA THEN NEW ALBUM! Throwing shade is my proffession!

  38. Gaaglooo! May 30, 2012

    Just saying BeYAWNce is a legenda a bunch of times doesn’t make it true. AND NEITHER DOES sayin’s she’s NOT a legend make it true either THER POINT is yal are the ones DESPERATELY trying to make BIONCI a legend and saying shoving her in everyones face, so much that she’s tired and lost all credibility.

    BEYONCE IS AMAZING BEYONCES A LEGEND! BEYONCE IS AN ICON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It’ called YAL TALK ABOUT IT SO MUCH IT’S TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE. Because it is. Yal spend so much time talking about how amazing BeYAWNce is it’s getting to the point where no one believes i anymore. The stans that cried legend. We’ve heard yal call BEY-side a legend so many times by the time she is a legend no one cares or will believe it.

      Because she didn’t sale as good as Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Katy Perry, so they are trying to convince the public that she is the best. But that won’t help her sales. Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Adele doesn’t have all the PR she has and all the ass kissing she has and they are still outselling her. They will continue putting articles out about how she is the greatest performer, ok what about her music. Last album sucks.

    This woman puts on a great show…. nuff said.

    You dont have to analyze it, you dont have to compare it….just accept that when it comes to a live performance, she’s gives you 300% . And can out perform any of her peers

    I can’t anymore. These kids born in the mid and late 90’s trying to say who is an isn’t the greatest. CHIL PLEASE. Yal have never gotten to EXPERIENCE Janet Jackson or Madonna who have, do, and will alays outperform BeYAWNce. It’s an issue of TASTE. Yal be the same ones that would say Applebees is the greatest restaurant of all time and 30 people would come along and agree OH YEAH it’s DEF THE GREATEST!!!!! Yal have such dubious taste. The same gorls that scream over blonde weave flailing and loose Houston c****** poppin.

    Im a Christina Aguilera Fan… But I agree that Beyonce is the Greatest PERFORMER of her Generation.. She is actually the mixture of Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears at their Prime. I don’t like Beyonce personally, but i like some of her songs.. And I can’t deny that she is the best performer nowadays..

    Gaga, Katy and Rihanna are ok, they got talent too.. But it is really an insult to put them on same sentence, paragraph or post with beyonce…

  44. RICK May 30, 2012

    Beyonce will go down in history as one of the best performer’s of our time. There is no other diva out today that can rock the stage like Beyonce. Hate her or love her, there is seriously no denying her talent!

  47. B_STANNING May 30, 2012

    BEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that reign just dont seem to let up year after year. This chick has been the #1 diva for a minute and BEY is truly the best of this time. She will not fade anytime soon.

  48. JER May 30, 2012

    so BEYsically…. BeYAWNce is the greatest at putting on costumes, hair, makeup, and dance around on stage so she’s a legend? Please. She’s a showgirl.

    • Um May 30, 2012

      aren’t showgirls performers?

      isn’t “costumes, hair, makeup, dancing” etc what ALL performers use during a STAGE PERFORMANCE?!

      by your logic, is MJ a showgirl? Prince a showgirl too? Is James Brown & Madonna & Janet, Whitney, Adele showgirls?

      gtfoh you hating ass, idiotic, irrelevant c***

  49. fatu sankoh May 30, 2012

    YES THAT IS SO TRUE I WAS AT THE FRIDAY SHOW HER PERFORMANCE WAS AMAZING THEIR IS NO ONE LIKE HER PERIOUD I AM STILL ON CLOUD 9 I CANT STOPE BEING HAPPY SHE GIVE HER ALL THX BEY FOR ALWAYS GIVING YOUR ALL LONG LIVE THE QUEEN

  50. EBONY CLAWS May 31, 2012

    Sure she is…

    WHO else???

    GAGA???? NO

    ADELE???? NOT COMPLETELY

    NObody

  51. Say Whaaaaat! May 31, 2012

    Spin got it right. She is the best performer of generation. She has and old school ethic and technique that a lot of performers today miss. To look and perform on point at all times, rehearse -rehearse-rehearse, be gracious. Other great performers Maxwell and Jill Scott.

  52. JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) May 31, 2012

    Again? Omg TGJ
    This time I´m just gonna say that I hope TGJ can make posts about people and magazines talking greats things (yeas as great as the ones that are said about beyonce) about other artists from now on, not only Beyonce ok? Just that. I don´t see you doing it with others

  53. Hush May 31, 2012

    LOL! I see it KILLS the haters to see Bey championed over her peers by this reputable magazine. Choke on it, b******. All they did was tell the damn truth. Beyonce can outperform any and all of her contemporaries/peers/rivals (most of whom are nothing but studio-made ‘singers’ who sound like s*** live and perform like walking zombies.) Beyonce is talent…Rihanna is not. Beyonce is talent…Katy Perry is not. Beyonce is talent…Lady Gaga is not. Etc., etc.

    🙂
