Beyonce’s Creative Director Frank Gatson Jr. Opens Up On ‘Mrs. Carter Tour’

Published: Friday 12th Apr 2013 by Sam

To the world, she’s an icon, a Pop queen, and in many ways…other-worldy.

Yet few see what goes into the making of Beyonce, and even fewer are privy to be part of the process.

Acclaimed Creative Director Frank Gatson Jr. belongs to the latter and has been an integral component of ‘Beyonce – The Performer’ from her early Destiny’s Child days right through to her ‘Grown Woman’ status of today.

And while details surrounding King B’s new ‘Mrs. Carter Show World Tour’ have been soaked in secrecy, the key players in the trek – Gatson and her team of dancers (some familiar, some new) – have spoken to Dance Spirit magazine about what the build-up to the tour has been like.

Peep more pics and quotables below…

Frank Gatson on ‘Mrs Carter Show’ build-up:

“This year’s tour audition process was the Super Bowl. We saw 800 girls and once we got down to 100, we paid close attention to who was professional and magical. Beyonce was very clear on who to pick for the tour—she means business. She’s hands-on and she wants her dancers to shine like stars.

“We show Beyoncé at least four versions of each song. She wants options to choose from because she’s done all kinds of dance, from ballet to tap. She wants to have fun dancing onstage for two hours, so she has to love all of it. She wants to do everything the correct way—the best way. She doesn’t want watered-down choreography. She has such respect for dance. And she will do almost anything as long as she remains a lady. She has class with everything she does, even a booty shake. She knows technique will keep your movement classy. When you mix ballet with street movement, you get the Beyonce brand. We call it country fried chicken with hot sauce.”

Dance captain Ashley Everett (first from left) talks heading up Bey’s dancers since 2009:

“Don’t let the hair flips, heels and booty shaking confuse you. Beyonce’s choreography is very diverse—we do it all. I have to know all the choreography, counts and timing. I pay attention to every detail.”

Interesting notes on ‘Mrs. Carter Show World Tour’:

* A total of seven choreographers worked on the tour, but Gatson, ‘Single Ladies’ routine creator JaQuel Knight, and Chris Grant handle the bulk of the work.

* The show will feature eight female dancers, and just two male dancers – Les Twins (pictured).

*  The eight dancers were required to wear all black, and if Beyonce was in the room, they also had to wear heels.

* Though primarily female, “camp Beyonce” -as the dancers are known-represent a host of different cities including Paris, California, Perth, Montreal, NYC, and more.

* Rehearsals often begun at 9am and did not have a definitive end time.

*  The Mrs. Carter Show, which kicks off this Sunday in Serbia, has sold out almost all of its near-50 global dates.

Needless to say, we can’t wait! Roll on the tour — and new single.

    can’t wait for the slayage.

    • Latrell4Bey April 12, 2013

      She’s performing better than ever! They cant take it!

      • PIU April 12, 2013

        I wonder how many Africans will have their ideas stolen to make this tour. Yall do know that the only reason she flew those tofu tofu dudes out to dance with her is because her own dancers could copy their dance moves to the standard she wanted it at.

        If her dancers HAD been able to copy their moves she wouldn’t have acknowledged tofu tofu and those poor men would never know she stole their idea.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . April 12, 2013

        ^^^ No stealing happened in the end, nothing bad happened. So you need to calm the f*** down with your “IF/WOULD” lame s***.

        And isn’t it a KIIIIIIIIIIIIII that the footwork alone had more energy than your fav’s whole skeleton body?

  7. 2bad2bme April 12, 2013

    i’m not hear to keep reading about what she is going to do…just put out the damn song, a video and promote the album and tour! c’mon Beyonce!

    • NaviKissKiss April 12, 2013

    • 21st CENTURY SLAYER (B_STANNING) April 12, 2013

      I am so glad that you said this cus its what I was thinking. I usually dont say anything but positive as a fan but Bey bring the damn single.

  8. Brandys Starr April 12, 2013

    I have to admit, I love Beyonces work ethic. She really DOES mean business when it comes to her performing. I love that she doesn’t play. And I have no doubt she will kill it.

  9. FentySoSnatched April 12, 2013

    Poor little flop flops, still no single?

    • BitchyBey April 12, 2013

      Still no cure for Rihanna’s h*****?

      • Natasha3 April 12, 2013

        @ BITCHYBEY, Rihanna will be healed from h***** when you are healed from yours!!!!

    • Jas April 12, 2013

      CORRECTION that poor little flip flop sold out a World Tour with no single. Mkay

  10. Draggin4MrsCarter April 12, 2013

    I won’t accept this s*** any longer. Give us the f****** single now! If you weren’t sure about it your ass shouldn’t have recorded it in the first damn place. The only way the stans won’t be mad if she promotes the f*** out of it when it’s out. I’m getting so mad.

  11. Ummmm… April 12, 2013

    I wonder how much stolen choreography she picked up from YouTube for this tour? Then again she’ll just say she was inspired after she gets caught. F****** fraud!

    • Latrell4Bey April 12, 2013

      so WHY check up on this fraud? where’s the logic?

      • Ummmm… April 12, 2013

        @Latrell, La-smell, whoever u are, go play with yourself or something. Where is your logic? Don’t bother commenting on peoples stuff because you don’t matter to anyone here on earth besides that thing that birthed you whenever or however that was. Fortunately I wasn’t there to see the disgusting s*** take place. Now ew, go away….

      • Latrell4Bey April 12, 2013

        but u cared enough to respond…just like u cared enough to click comment n post like u do everything else beyonce related…ctfu u tried tho.

    • Ummmm… April 12, 2013

    Beyonce is one of the only performers who can shake her ass with class.

  13. Latrell4Bey April 12, 2013

    Beyonce kills it when she is on stage! She keeps up with the dancers! damn i want the single too but s*** its Beyonce’s career she NEVER put out a release date. she know what she doing.

  15. Mother Monster April 12, 2013

    Hopefully she won’t lip sync on this tour

    • Likica April 12, 2013

      She won’t. She is coming on 15th here in Belgrade and organizators confirmed that she won’t lip sync, the show is live.

      B****

  16. JanetXone April 12, 2013

    Beyonce is making a big mistake right now. First off, she’s beginning to think that calling herself the king is doing her any favors when all it’s really doing is making her old before her time. If everyone thinks Rihanna is fun and free and relatable why would you make yourself even more inaccessible by acting like you’re royalty.

    Plus, if her new album doesn’t slay with its sound and videos etc she’s gonna go down a flop because today’s kids don’t give a damn about what you did ten years ago which is why half of em couldn’t name 5 Janet songs if they tried. Beyonce girl,

    I want you to know that being humble and down to earth always worked with you and that name dropping the Obamas and literally being oblivious to world politics just makes you seem clueless.

    • R****** Navy = Broke, Ugly & bitter April 12, 2013

      The general doesn’t think Rihanna is relateable & fun. They pretty much know she’s a terrible live performer. Hence was the responses & reviews to her tour has been underwhelming. endorsers are not willing to sponsor her tour because she’s a liability. On top of that, she’s not a good role model. Rihanna concert tickets have been on sale since last year November(and still not sold out). Meanwhile Beyonce is adored & appreciated by the general public, despite all the fake controversies that have been thrown her way. She remains professional & a class act. All her tour dates sold out fast! Pepsi is sponsoring her tour, and she has other endorsements with Lo’real & H&M. Clearly she has the attention of the general public.

      • Pretty Nicki April 12, 2013

        No the general public lives Taylor Swift…hence all of her albums outselling beyonces! Sowwy Beyonce is fat old phony and washed

      • Jas April 12, 2013

        At least Beyonce does look like she’s part of the Klan *cough cough* Taylor

      • Jas April 12, 2013

        *doesn’t*

  17. . : : h 2 o : : . April 12, 2013

    I hope she uses this tour to promote her new music, though.

    XD

    • Mother Monster April 12, 2013

      dont count on it b****

      • . : : h 2 o : : . April 12, 2013

  18. TWITTER.COM/ESSENCE_OF_SEAN April 12, 2013

    AS A FELLOW JANET STAN

    SHUT THE F*** UP!

    I ALSO STAN FOR BEYONCE! SHE IS A HARDWORKER AND SHE KNOWS EXACTLY WTF SHE IS DOING!

  19. Anon April 12, 2013

    I used to stan so hard for Beyonce but s*** has become so transparent since Mathew left. You stans sit here and act like you know anything about Cuban politics to defend her for going there when you don’t know the first thing. Beyonce is talented and she’s the best performer out there, but I now see that she isn’t a straight forward person.
    She knew Matt stole from ALL the girls but only fired him when he stole from her.
    She stole Amerie’s sound and ran with it and she’s even stealing Rita’s look.
    She performed for Gadaffi and even performed for President Bush but then suddenly remembered she was a democrat when Obama came around.

    I never thought I’d see the day when I liked Rihanna more than her.

    • Rellz April 12, 2013

      Im sorry but what does where they travel for their anniversary have to do with why people stan for her? And you sound stupid with all that matthew knowles s*** which is in the past now, he was her father and very controlling you dont know what went on in their relationship and what hold he had on her. And Ameries sound? How? When Ameries biggest hit came out after her? Im not even gonna talk about the whole Rita ora thing, you were never a stan in the first place making such stupid comments like that.

    • Ummmm… April 12, 2013

      @ ANON, You can say that again. She stole her whole countdown video from a Belgian choreographer name Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, her single ladies choreography was lifted from 1960’s Bob Fosse’s Mexican Breakfast, and I could go on and on. She’s not original and her ignorant fans should do their research before praising such a fruad. She’s lifted from the likes of Shakira, Mya, Janet, and many others. My issue with her is she never gives credit until she gets caught. There a difference between being inspired and simply jacking someone’s s***.

      • Yeah I Said April 12, 2013

        YAWN everyone knows Beyonce has been sued multiple times already, people still love her as a performer and for what shes good at don’t patronise we know damn well what she has and hasn’t done. There have been much worse scandals in the industry just get over it. Nobody is original these days.

    • Ummmm… April 12, 2013

      Oh, and her 1+1 video concept was ripped from Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Inferno. Lmfao, smh! Should I go on, Shoud I go on!!!!!???????????????

      • TRUTH SERUM April 12, 2013

        Are you sure you’re not a STAN??? Obsessed.. People act like she choreographs her routines. F*cken internet stalkers..

    • Ummmm… April 12, 2013

      Oh, and her 1+1 video concept was ripped from Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Inferno. Lmfao, smh! Should I go on, Shoud I go on!!!!!???????????????

      • Kyle April 12, 2013

        Lol girl give it a break this is old news. Beyonce is still Beyonce still making that money and big name for herself, youre just gonna have to deal. *Shakes booty to the stolen yet iconic single ladies choreo*

  20. King B>Rihanna April 12, 2013

    the rihanna fans need to keep it cute when your precious little Riri looks like she actually gives a f*** on stage maybe then your opinion will hold some weight.

  21. fatusankoh April 12, 2013

  22. Rellz April 12, 2013

  23. MiMi Carey April 12, 2013

    beyonce is a fool

    • BeyBeyKing April 12, 2013

      Mariah can’t even outsell Nicki today so sit.

      • Steph April 12, 2013

        She dont need toooo 200 million copies sold B****!

      • Navy Sailor!!! April 12, 2013

        Nickis sophomore album hasn’t even gone platinum yet….even with a rerelease. Mariah is no longer is her prime. Try again 😆

  24. Lovebird (I’m legit) April 12, 2013

    “Don’t let the hair flips, heels and booty shaking confuse you. Beyonce’s choreography is very diverse—we do it all. I have to know all the choreography, counts and timing. I pay attention to every detail.”

    DEAD, she’s been doing the same tired single ladies and crazy in love technique, there’s no diversity in her dance or performances. Same tired dance on her theatre/arena tour, same tired dance on her DVD, same tired dance at the SB.

    So are we going to get any new details on this FLOP new single? I see camp Beyonce has gagged Dreams mouth for spilling some tea on it. This single will never see the light of day, it was fake hype to fool and dupe her fans into buying tickets. Instead they’ll get a catalog of 4gotten on tour, an album they refused to buy that Beyonce has repackaged it and discounted it on iTunes.

    2.1 million WW for 4gotten and judging from that bow down rubbish, this will be another era the hive will let FLOP. Bey keeps trolling them it’s hilarious.

    • Yeah I Said It April 12, 2013

      A Rihanna fan talking about dance. Stop shading yourself.

    • R****** Navy = Broke, Ugly & bitter April 12, 2013

      That’s because your dumb ass isn’t knowledgeable in the different styles of dancing. 2.1mil?!? Try 3mil worldwide. Now why don’t you worry about Ricki, who’s hawking out all those forgettable singles & still getting ignored about the general public. Let us know when Pink Friday reboot 3.0 scan platinum in America.

    • Steph April 12, 2013

      UMMMMM Michael Jackson, Tina Turner, Janet Jackson does the same things over and over and over and over in thier concerts. ARE THEY TIRED TOO… Shut the f*** up.

    • FeFe Dobson (The Original Ri) April 12, 2013

      Why would she change choreography to single ladies you dumb f***? That’s how I know you know nothing. That’s one her most recognised pieces of choreography and most impersonated/impactful of the 21st century! Get real.

    • TRUTH SERUM April 12, 2013

      I’m sure you’re waiting with baited breadth!!!! Who do you STAN for again??? Right, Beyonce

  25. TaylorWins April 12, 2013

    I hope we get some new choreography on this tour because I’m tired of being able to predict everything she’ll do down to the last hair flick.

  26. Navy Sailor!!! April 12, 2013

    Why all the secrecy? She’s acting like her new project is Area 51 or some s***. Just drop the f****** single.

    • Yeah I Said It April 12, 2013

      Why do you care?

      • Navy Sailor!!! April 12, 2013

        Why do you care about why I care h**?

  27. BarbzRUs April 12, 2013

    Real talk though, did Beyonce ever SAY we were getting a new single?

    • MRS CARTER LOVER April 12, 2013

      The dream said that we were getting two singles before the superbowl, then billboard said that GW was gonna be released last Monday!!! WHERE IS IT 🙁

      • Yeah I Said April 12, 2013

        But SHE never said anything hon.

  28. Yeah I Said It April 12, 2013

    Yes Frank! He knows what hes talking about havjng choreographed for MJ in the past. And why are all these non fans talking about what choreo they wanna see from her? Do ya thing Bey Im sure this will be the ultimate tour of the year. Showing s***** performs how its done on stage.

  35. . : : h 2 o : : . April 12, 2013

    @ HATEBird

    1-

    As I said before, I’ll be the first KIIIIIIII-er if this arena tour outgrosses your fav’s tour.

    2-

    Do NOT act like you know what will happen in the future, or like you are one from Beyonce’s team and know what’s going on with her, unless you have them receipts.

    If you don’t give receipts for whatever your 12-year-old skeleton ass says, how do you expect from us to take you seriously?

    The single will drop WHENEVER Beyonce feels like, and you and your 12-year-old skeleton, Jay-Z money-making slave, trafficked-from-Barbasod, certified-FLOP fav who doesn’t even control her own life can do nothing about that.

    Hell, your fav is not even qualified to be a cockroach in Beyonce’s toilet. Even Blue Ivy is wealthier and more successful and powerful than your fav!

    She wouldn’t even have pictures of your fav in her diapers to p*** and s*** on them whenever she feels like.

    3-

    You can NOT play with numbers, “4” sold more than 3 million worldwide. NOT 2.1 million.

    And you have NO room to call the BeyHive a fanbase who “refuse to buy albums” when it’s our first underperforming album in 15 years, with the rest selling between 6 and 14 million worldwide.

    Your stanbase let their fav FLOP for FIVE times already!

    Flop Of The Sun – FLOPPED
    A Flop Like Me – FLOPPED
    Rated Flop – FLOPPED
    Flop That Flop – FLOPPED
    UnFlopBLOWJOBic – FLOPPING ATM

    NOT to mention the number of FLOPPED tours, DVDs, and every damn thing you caused to your fav.

    LMAO . . . Your fav is an INDUSTRY JOKE . . . You irate Rihanna Nazi are the ones who gave her that “Singles Artist” title.

    • Navy Sailor!!! April 12, 2013

      Is that you in your avi?

      • Likica April 12, 2013

        The only flop era Rihanna had is MOTS. All of her other eras managed to sell over 10 million records worldwide so that is not a flop, sorry.

      • Navy Sailor!!! April 12, 2013

        Gurl I don’t even go back and forth about it anymore. Even with receipts they’re gonna believe what they want. 🙄

      • . : : h 2 o : : . April 12, 2013

        I’m talking about ALBUM sales hun, what actually matters :mrgreen:

      • Likica April 12, 2013

        Beyonce sales are not that impressive either, The Hive act like she is such a huge album seller but she couldn’t score a 10 million seller album when P!nk/Xtina/Britney/Eminem/Kelly Clarkson/Avril Lavigne and many other artists could do easily. I am pretty sure that Music of The Sun would be over 2 million if she promoted it and released more singles. I mean, B Day had 6 singles, as much as MOTS and A Girl Like Me combined. Plus Beyonce was coming from a successful group during her debut, Rihanna was completely unknown.
        Both are average album sellers. At least Rihanna is a good single seller, Beyonce is average there as well. And don’t bring me that Billboard s***** excuse that she has sold 30 million albums in the USA alone because DC is DC and Beyonce is Beyonce. We are talking about solo careers. No one includes includes Jackson5 sales when they talk about Michael Jackson.

  42. xedos April 12, 2013

    do i detect a pattern going on in the Roc nation camp? Beyonce only have 2 male dancers the twin. Rihanna has no male dancers. Beyonce release a trailer for her pepsi commercial. rihanna 777 tour trailer release the next day.
    Normally beyonce starts her tour in North America then head to Europe. this time she starts in Europe while Rihanna starts in North America by the summer. they will switch locations is this coincidence? very interesting

  43. xedos April 12, 2013

    By the end of the year roc nation will be rolling in money beyonce,rihanna and jay Z tour with JT

  44. xedos April 12, 2013

    I think beyonce will release a single when she tour comes to North America. why would she release a single when she’s in Europe touring? how is she going to promote it?

  45. Steph April 12, 2013

    RIHANNA IS A FLOP THAT FLOP LOLOSODFLASDOLOLOLOLOLOLOOLAHHAHAHAHAHAH

  46. Georgia April 12, 2013

    ‘She means business’ You damn right! Love her! Im not one of them old school STANS for Bey, but I became a big fan of hers when my friend dragged me along to The Beyonce Experience. Ever since then I respect her drive, passion and determination as a performer whatever mistakes and shady things she has done along the way (the whole industry is shady get over it).

  50. KELLY April 12, 2013

    Beyonce needs someone that is able to bring a little bit of new ideas and creativity once in a while and Frank Gatson is not it.

    It’s just the same everything over and over again. He did the same thing with Brandy. So stale and not innovative.

    I worry Beyonce is going to stick with him for the rest of her career 🙁

    • I_HEART_U April 12, 2013

      Finally a Bey fan who isn’t afraid to admit the truth. I love beyonce but it’s time for something different.

      • Sass April 12, 2013

        That sort of thing bothers some, others it doesn’t.

  51. Loyalty April 12, 2013

    Old stuff or not. Bey shuts it down on stage everytime. That’s all you can critique her for really, hence why people run and jump with it. If you ever go to Beyonce shows, you will know that her doing the same s*** doesn’t matter. Nobody comes out of a Bey show disappointed.

  52. GAGA MONSTER April 12, 2013

    I believe Lovebird is just terrfied from the slayage Beyonce’s coming with, considering she’s obviously taking a commercial route. Hopefully she’ll get over it when Mrs. Carter outsells Unapologetic in a matter of weeks, and she learns that her fave is an lessor whose weave is only for snatching.

    • Jess April 12, 2013

      I concur. I mean, the guy has issues. He’s been trying to “expose” Beyonce for years…its so pathetic lmfao.

  53. Sass April 12, 2013

    LOL everytime I see Frank Gatson now I just think of the documentary when he went HAM on the dancers for not putting their hats on right

    Shakira did that same breast shake(@theend of beyonces pepsi commercial ) in several of her old videos !

    I like beyonce and all (vocally) but there is nothing original about. her

  56. Its a Wrap April 12, 2013

    I wish I was going 🙁 Even more depressed cos Made in America sold out so fast aswell.

  57. QueenBarb April 12, 2013

    Her fans are fools paying to see her sing the same damn songs shes been performing for years now… i can’t with these bums

    Those dancers looks so fierce aswell, especially the top set. Ashley I see you gurrrl!

  59. Maestro J April 12, 2013

    Yeah No new Music, no new visuals, nothing to be excited about. I feel like the same show I saw in ATLANTIC CITY will be the same show y’all about to see globally … COOL THOUGHT is that she will debut new music along the leg of the tour but I highly doubt it. Beyonce isnt much for performing songs that arent singles and if she does that it will be basically leaking the whole album so what is this part one of the tour? Since she didnt get to tour last time for real because she was pregnant and decided to stay home until Blue turned 1… okay ALL DUE RESPECT… but GIRRRLLL U not about to sell me a show I’ve already seen…

    • I_HEART_U April 12, 2013

      Wtf? Please keep your day job papi.

  61. HoneychildPlease April 12, 2013

    Yawn…Why she keep trying though? Beyawnce is so played out it isn’t even funny! This old bish just has no type of creativity in her body! Same ol damn two step, same old ass wigs…Than she goes on stage, and pretends like she actually slaying!! Bish if i did the same two step for 10 years you better be slaying!!! There is nothing special about beyonce at all like the thrill has dead like 6 years ago….No new music, No great buzz singles * Laughs* Nothing but the same tour from 3 years ago, or should i say reveal all over again….She sounds like big bird at her highest note…She isn’t slaying s*** as far as i can see..Everything beyawnce has done this year has been a total FAIL!!! What dumb fool if she think she is king? or the correct term QUEEN…There are young woman younger than her slaying, and holding it done…Tell me something where the fck is the so called queen DIAMOND album??? oh but you a boss bish?? SOMeBODY please call matty and tell him to come get his daughter, and school this bird once again…

    • HoneychildPlease April 12, 2013

      ***DIED

    • Sass April 12, 2013

      YES! Write them essays for the Queen!

    • Little Monster April 12, 2013

      And meanwhile, Beyonce is about to embark on a sold out tour with no new music at all. While you stay typing for dear life on your computer. You are full of contradictions anyway talking about a diamond album when you call Rihanna a queen. Wheres her diamond album? Nothing you say is diplomatic, that’s why only people who have gripes with Beyonce like your comments. I stan for both Beyonce and Gaga for different reasons because I see the strengths and weaknesses in everybody. I cant stand Rihanna but you dont see me hating on every post cos shes doing her. Just cos you don’t like the way Beyonce is, doesn’t mean its the truth, its an opinion.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . April 12, 2013

      “Tell me something where the fck is the so called queen DIAMOND album???”
      __________________________________________

      And why does it matter?

      Power = MONEY, not local-ass album certifications. Specially when it comes to artists like Beyonce, whose career is built off a million things other than album sales, has studied the music industry inside out and knows every how to make millions off any f*****’ thing.

      And that’s what satisfies her, that’s what means POWER to her. Unlike flopped RADIO PETS and 360 SLAVES who’ll forever still be getting robbed by their labels without having any power to stop them.

    • Leyla April 12, 2013

      Look. Im not no Beyonce stan but I think the main reason her fans call her that is because shes a brilliant performer. Shes one of, if not THE best female performers of her generation its undeniable. Beyonce doesnt need a diamond album to be respected. And its not only her fans that call her queen, celebrities and the media alike have attatched that name to her aswell so its only natutal the fans will run and jump with it. Youve really got to think sometimes and put your dislike for someone aside of you wanna sound rational.

      • Little Monster April 12, 2013

        Exactly.

    • Tash April 12, 2013

      Girl quit over exaggerating all the damn time youre such a melodramatic queen. Two step? Ch….

    • Jas April 12, 2013

      Idk about Beyonce but your tired ass needs to stop trying. Stop making such a spectacle of yourself.

      • Tash April 12, 2013

        MTE, they READ him down for this mess.

  62. Sass April 12, 2013

    I love how pressed Beyoncé makes some people. They be writing paragraphs over and over lmao!

  63. Little Monster April 12, 2013

    I am sure she will shut it down, she can drop the single whenever she wants now theres so much anticipation, she doesn’t need a release date.

    • RICHANDBLACK11 April 12, 2013

      Thats the thing Beyonce’ never gives a release date, she just release it when she see fit.

  64. mc the place to be! April 12, 2013

    like i said beyonce’s doing everything but music…atleast mj had new music before he did anything before pepsi commercial before tour dates everything because music is all that matters especially when you’re a singer and artist but i forgot beyonce’s a brand/product she’s just about money and chunks of gold medal molded into a gramophone player.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . April 12, 2013

    • Little Monster April 12, 2013

      Dont worry about if you are not a fan. It will come.

    • RICHANDBLACK11 April 12, 2013

      SHE IS MAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHY YOU PEOPLE LET BEYONCE UPSET YALL LIKE THAT?

  65. Lovebird (I’m legit) April 12, 2013

    I remember seeing the same comments when run the flop dropped, “yass she’s back, slay, mother I’m so ready, lessors blah blah blah” and we all know how that ended. She performed that crap on every stage she could find including Ciara’s bathroom stage. To save face, she faked a pregnancy.

    This is the same hype I’m seeing all over again, a messy handling of the era, adding DC sales to inflate Bey’s sales when we all know Letoya Luckett should get all the credit because she wrote the first two albums. Bow down I been on rubbish and someone who’s been in the game for 15 years failing to upgrade to stadiums, still doing theatres/arenas.

    When this good bye greatest hits tour wraps up, that’ll be it for Beyonce. She desperately needs Matthew to save her.

    • Little Monster April 12, 2013

      Unless you have a glass ball, have a seat deary.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . April 12, 2013

      Somebody seems very upset and MAD…..Power of Beyonce.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . April 12, 2013

      Ummm….. And she made it clear her direction for “4” wasn’t commercial/generic and was specially for her fans, but this era everything seems to be different.

      And #neaux1currr about stadiums when you can sell tickets as fast as Beyonce, for outrageous sales, and still have a CRAZY demand for the rest of your tour’s legs.

      So miss me with that #FLOPPED shade, because it’s become so f*****’ Dec 2012.

    [She has class with everything she does, even a booty shake. She knows technique will keep your movement classy.]

    I guess she is classy even when she open her legs for Camel, suck his d***, lick his ass and balls and get fisted with a oak stick, yeah!…we all know what class is.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . April 12, 2013

      I wish I could suck Jay-Z’s c*** and lick his balls and ass, as well as suck his c** from Beyonce’s p****.

      But WTF can I do? 🙁

      • Suicide Blonde April 12, 2013

        Ewww!…so nasty…i can’t even imagine that.

      • Suicide Blonde April 12, 2013

        Who has a fine body?…Beyonce or Camel cuz Camel’s body is horrible, i won’t even, Beyonce is very brave to f*** that man, hell i even scary by his mouth.

    • Fran April 12, 2013

      Erm its her husband dont be so immature.

    • Yes Maam April 12, 2013

      They prolly have great s** no matter how ugly he is

    • Teah April 12, 2013

      Yeah, because making love to the man that you dated for 10 years then went on to marry isn’t classy at all. “I guess she is classy even when she open her legs for Camel” I’m pretty sure Ike Turner Jr. oops I mean Chris Brown, Drake, Meek Mill, Ashton Kutcher, and every Tom, D***, Harry, and Jane said the same thing about RihEscort. Especially when she gave them head with that big Super Dome of a cranium of hers. Now that’s the epitome of class.

    • Tash April 12, 2013

      Not everyone looks at s** in the dirty way you do. When you’ve been in love with that person for years and are married to them looks are irrelevant. You sound so shallow. She can do whatever the f*** she wants she only has one man to her poom poom for all her 20s that’s pretty classy behaviour if you ask me, coming from a woman.

      • Tash April 12, 2013

        *coming from a woman myself

  69. HoneychildPlease April 12, 2013

    • Jess April 12, 2013

      So, you stan for an untalented ass bish….Rihanna will NEVER be as BIG or TALENTED as her stans make her out to be. Hence, the reason why no other sources refer to that h** as a Queen but the Navy. People actually do see Rihanna for what she really is… a singles artist who can’t back her s*** up with talent, record sales, or ticket sales.

  70. Fran April 12, 2013

    • Teah April 12, 2013

      FLOP? What do you mean? Like RihSlut’s BORING Blood Diamonds Tour ? In which she lacks vocal talent, choreography, stage presence, and most importantly….GOOD ticket sales. Because That’s what I call GARBAGE LMFAO.

  75. . : : h 2 o : : . April 12, 2013

    TBH I’m liking these “No single? Poor dat” comments.

    Like, WTF is wrong with NOT having a single out for this week?

    Who told you there was a new single coming basically?

    Did Beyonce ever announce anything officially?

  76. kaymo April 12, 2013

    Her concert dvds are starting to get boring and this is coming from a fan. I get that she shouldn’t really change the choreography to “Crazy in Love” & Single Ladies” b/c those are her most recognizable hits but the show as a whole is becoming repetitive and predictable. Hairography & ass shaking is not dancing but she does do it well lol… I just think she should start working with new ppl and actually try to come up with something creative & fresh and stop being “inspired” by youtube clips.
    She’s obviously a great performer but she seems too comfortable…
    Regardless she’s still a better performer than this whole generation combined so…..

    • Yes Maam April 12, 2013

      I stopped believing you were fan when you started talking about her dancing. Cut the b******* please and just be honest. And its getiing repetative cos its the same DVD dumbass. Have you even seen what the Mrs Carter is like yet? Fill me in with the exclusives.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . April 12, 2013

      Well, I def agree!

      As much as I enjoy her music and live performances, she should start working with new people, try new things!

      I feel like this new era is a radical change . . . XD

  77. JER April 12, 2013

    Oh please. The lies are all over. They didn’t pick the best dancers, they picked the SOMEWHAT best dancers because BeYAWNce is not letting ANYONE shine please!!! Also stop acting like it’s going to be ANYTHING different than what she’s been doing since B’Day

    • Jas April 12, 2013

      Oh please, Idk how you can even come up with that conclusion if you haven’t even heard the single its entirety. You don’t know what Beyonce has planned for this era nor do you even know the release date. Thus, you shouldn’t act as if everything that your’re saying is factual because it is not. You despise Beyonce. For that very reason your argument isn’t even valid.

  78. Yaz April 12, 2013

    Whys everyone so up in arms about the single, she never had a release date. Ive got a feeling she will really perform her album in depth on North American leg and then add more legs to the tour. Shes taking an old school approach.

  79. Vanessa April 12, 2013

    Les Twins! 😀 I love them but I wish there were more male dancers 🙁

  80. Teah April 12, 2013

    @Suicide Blonde Yeah, because making love to the man that you dated for 10 years then went on to marry isn’t classy at all. “I guess she is classy even when she open her legs for Camel” I’m pretty sure Ike Turner Jr. oops I mean Chris Brown, Drake, Meek Millz, Ashton Kutcher, and every Tom, D***, Harry, and Jane said the same thing about RihEscort. Especially when she gave them head with that big Super Dome of a cranium of hers. Now that’s the epitome of class smdh.

    • Tash April 12, 2013

      Exactly

  81. Tash April 12, 2013

    So now you people are gonna argue with Frank Gatson Jr about dance? Id love to see that in reality.

  82. Jess April 12, 2013

    @Little Monster You better PREACH hun. You come from a very logical stand point. As opposed, to an emotional or jaded one. Unlike the regular “IBeyonceHateBandWagon” (HoneyChildPlease,Suicide Blonde, Jer, That Great Lace Front, Rossana, Love Bird…especially, and etc. For example). You seem like a very rational individual. For that very reason, I’m going to re-post your comment.

    “And meanwhile, Beyonce is about to embark on a sold out tour with no new music at all. While you stay typing for dear life on your computer. You are full of contradictions anyway talking about a diamond album when you call Rihanna a queen. Wheres her diamond album?
