Beyonce Tops Pop Star Movie Debut Chart / Beats Prince & Whitney Houston

Published: Thursday 15th Aug 2013 by David

It’s a move many a musician struggles to make, but it seems finding footing on cinematic territory came all too easy for Pop icon Beyonce, the 17 time Grammy winner with a string of Box Office smashes to her name.

Now, as she gears up to storm the world with her fifth studio album, the star has topped a tally listing the highest grossing leading roles fulfilled by a musician in their big screen debuts…beating Whitney Houston in ‘The Bodyguard’ and Prince in ‘Purple Rain’.

Released on July 26th 2002, ‘Austin Powers in Goldmember‘ boasted a leading role from Beyonce, who’d starred in MTV’s ‘Carmen: A Hip Hop Opera’ a year before.

Now, after generating a mind blowing $213,307,889 at the Box Office since then, Beyonce’s role in the movie now makes it the biggest big screen debut for an Pop star playing a leading role. In this case, that role being that of  the ‘blaxploitation’ inspired Foxxy Cleopatra!

In doing so, she outperforms Whitney Houston‘s starring role in Mick Jackson‘s ‘The Bodyguard’ which generated $25 million in its opening weekend, and the cult classic that is Prince‘s ‘Purple Rain’, directed by Albert Magnoli– starring the performer himself and Apollonia Kotero.

      • La Perra August 15, 2013

      • Tyler August 15, 2013

        Bottom boy??? Are all females considered bottoms…or did you just come up with that one yourself? And Idc if this is about Ciara or not. I know your multiple account having ass *cough cough* XtinaLove, is not trying to judge anyones acting, when your own fave can’t act for s***. “people weren’t going to the movies to see her tragedy looking ass”.Really? b**** the only one not capable of “not going places” is you. Since that’s what prevented your lowly ass from purchasing your own faves 67k album.

    • Fierce & all -Not here for b****** that can only slay in studios August 15, 2013

      I agree. She’s not a very good actress but ppl pay to see it cuz she’s a star.

  6. XXX August 15, 2013

  12. AJ August 15, 2013

    …I don’t get it, how is $213,307,889 “mind-blowing”, when Bodyguard grossed over $400 million? Am I missing something or do I not know how to count??

    • La Perra August 15, 2013

      • #beautiful August 15, 2013


      • Tyler August 15, 2013

        That’s awful Tyler, why you gotta drag cici through the mud like that! Just Evil… Im glad i dont stan for that b****… everyone thinks she is a joke now…

      • Tyler August 15, 2013

        @La Perra

        But b**** be gone! I know your hypocritical ass is not trying to judge after the way you and the rest of the CSquad have dragged other artist. Your ass has had multiple Beyonce Bashing sessions. And I never said “why you gotta drag them through the mud like that”. So have several. “everyone thinks she is a joke now…”. No, a joke is being in the game for over 10 years and still being incapable of selling 100k in the first week lol…so lets not.

  13. Georgia August 15, 2013

    You go girl! Beyonce slays in all avenues she enters 😉

  14. Fierce & all -Not here for b****** that can only slay in studios August 15, 2013

    Good for Beyonce. I’m gonna watch Obsessed later. 🙂

  15. Yaz August 15, 2013

    This was my favorite movie she was in. And she has yet to win a Razzie (unlike a certain other on her debut of 5 lines). So I dont want to see that fan base throwing any shade.

  16. Khia Stan August 15, 2013

    F*** her she’s an evil devil worshiping fool

    • Beyhive August 15, 2013

      • Tyler August 15, 2013

        @Kia Stan

        B**** you know good and damn well that you aren’t a damn kia Stan. And you should be the last one talking about anyone’s mother. When Kia’s ugly ass has a mouth only a mother can love.

    • King August 15, 2013

      Typing “hahaha” and calling me gullible didn’t justify the fact you guys are weak and easy to f*** with.

      • Tyler August 15, 2013

        Right, and refuting that doesn’t change the fact that you’re a “stupid h**”…what else is new?

      • RICHIE_RICH August 15, 2013

  20. RICHIE_RICH August 15, 2013

    Any Question? We know she’s not the best actress, but as y’all say # don’t lie. Anymore Question? SEETHE haters

  21. Yeah I Said It August 15, 2013

    She slays and clap backs so effortlessly.

  22. AJ August 15, 2013

    Ok I just dug a little more & I see even though Bodyguard grossed $200 million more than Austin P WORLDWIDE. The chart is “domestic” wise specific; hence Whitney being second. So before you Beystans get over happy; your Queen only rules this chart because we are looking at the American stats. Shame on y’all for not making this more clear.

  23. Kendall August 15, 2013

    Congrats to her.

  24. Third Ward Trill (aka quetta) August 15, 2013

    Why is la perra so mad?? Haha. I loved her in this movie. She really did her thing. You can tell she enjoyed filming this and she was always pointing that damn gun, lol.

    • Tyler August 15, 2013

      Right…And then La Perra’s hypocritical ass is gonna have the audacity to tell me not to drag Ciara…That b**** got me f***** up lol. I’ll say Ciara as many times as I f****** want.

      “Ciara, Ciara, Ciara. The Prince is here!…HEara!!!!!!!!!!!

      • TurnUp4Cici August 15, 2013

        You b****** are obsessed with Ciara!!!!

      • Tyler August 15, 2013

      • Tyler August 15, 2013

        The only weak one I see is you boo. Unlike your fake ass I don’t need to use multiple accounts to get my point across. But feel free to believe whatever you want if it helps you save face.

      • Third Ward Trill (AKA QUETTA) August 16, 2013

        @King, you’re dumbass. I changed my name to third ward trill but put aka quetta so people would know that It was me. Also, I am NOT digger bey. I don’t have time to be playing as diff ppl like the navy and broke squad. So get your weak, struggle to clock ass off my post.

    • King August 15, 2013

      No b**** not everyone is a weak stupid f** who needs to use multiple accounts to get her point across and act like my fave has more Stan’s then others…that just weak. Almost as weak as your comebacks and shade durlinggg.

      • Tyler August 15, 2013

        “That’s just weak b****” which is exactly why I don’t need to do it. And your comebacks sound dumb as f*** so idc why the f*** your even here…Sorry):

    • King August 21, 2013

      Looool and you sound like a stupid 14 year old trying to be grown. YOU sound dumb ass f*** tbh and you know it. I obviously struck a nerve.

  26. POSH RIRI August 15, 2013

    Who the f*** cares?

    ‘The Bodyguard’ is a CLASSIC ROMANTIC FILM.

    A) Classic Soundtrack
    B) Classic Actors
    C) Classic Single that was associated with the film: IWALY.

    Her b******* role will never surpass Queen Whitney’s – Rachel Marron.

    Princes film also generated a CLASSIC SOUNDTRACK ALBUM that has sold 30 M WW and he WON AN OSCAR.

    WAT DA F*** HAS THIS B**** ACHIEVED? We all know Goldmemba was a success because of mike Myers.

    • RICHIE_RICH August 15, 2013

  28. pat August 15, 2013

    bodyguard and purple rain were vehicles built solely around whitney and prince…..austim powers was already a franchise that would’ve down those numbers regardless if beyonce was in it or not…#noshade

    • Tyler August 15, 2013

      The majority of the films that Beyonce have been in were all box office hits… So for you to say that she being in the movie had pull at all, is beyond ridiculous.

  29. King August 15, 2013

    All the Navy got is 12# 1’s….If I was an artist I think I would rather have 17 Grammy’s IJS….

    Grammy Award (originally called Gramophone Award) – or Grammy – is an accolade by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States to recognize outstanding achievement in the music industry. The annual presentation ceremony features performances by prominent artists, and some of the awards of more popular interest are presented in a widely viewed televised ceremony. It is the music equivalent to the Emmy Awards for television, the Tony Awards for stage performances, and the Academy Awards for motion pictures.

  47. Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 15, 2013

    Yet another chart that proves just how LOCAL BeTrannyYonce actually is.

    I also cannot at her looking like a boy with that new Rihanna inspired hair cut, add her 5th grade education level and you have a clear contestant for the game show, “Are you smarter than a 5th grader?”.

  48. Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 15, 2013

    I also cannot at the Hive hyping Epic up as some box office fail-proof when it grossed LOWER than Rihanna’s alleged Flop Battleship. Ultimate Kiiiii.

    So how many years in HollyWood Beyonce and you still cannot take part in a movie that grosses higher than Rihanna’s FIRST and apparently FLOP movie, I cannot.

      So local yet:

      Don’t tell Rihanna: Fans more Crazy in Love with Beyonce as V Festival demand doubles
      7 Aug 2013 08:22

      Demand to see the Bootylicious songstress in action outstrips the draw of Rihanna in 2011 by 2:1 and is 83 per cent higher than Nicki Minaj in 2012

      Power couple: JAY Z surprises his wife Beyonce on stage in Philadelphia last month Power couple: JAY Z surprises his wife Beyonce on stage in Philadelphia last month

      They are music’s unstoppable power couple, from that incredible Superbowl half time show to the Sounds of Change charity gig in London, husband and wife Beyonce and JAY Z (don’t forget the CAPS) seem to be the biggest draw in the business at the moment.

      Is she’s not selling out arenas across the UK – as she did this spring, it’s JAY Z’s turn to announce a massive autumn tour, which promptly sells out in nanoseconds.

      With spring and autumn all wrapped up between them, it seems they are now competing for summer dominance too.

      Last month saw JAY Z team up with Justin Timberlake and Rihanna on stage at Yahoo! Wireless in London, and Beyonce is now warming up her booty (and vocal chords) to headline V Festival in what promises to be August’s hottest ticket in town.

      Tickets are still available to buy via the link below:

      Buy V Festival tickets now with Mirror Tickets.

      Online ticket marketplace viagogo has revealed that demand for tickets to see the former Destiny’s Child star is outstripping 2011’s headliner Rihanna by 2:1.

      Furthermore, ticket searches for this year’s festival are 83 per cent higher than at the same time in 2012, when Nicki Minaj took to the main stage alongside The Killers and Snow Patrol.

      viagogo spokesperson Steve Roest comments: “Fans who missed out on seeing Beyonce’s UK tour earlier this year are desperate to catch a glimpse of their hero at V Festival. The singer is well-known for pulling out all the stops when it comes to her live gigs and the current demand suggests her rivals will need to go that extra mile if they want to steal her crown at next year’s festival.”

      Just in case you were interested, the line-up this year also includes lesser mortals like Kings of Leon, Stereophonics, Calvin Harris, The Script, Emeli Sande and many more – see our guide for more details.

      If you weren’t, here’s a sneak peek at Beyonce’s new “Bow Down” music video:

      Beyonce is pretty good but I give Ri the edge; the record sales concur with that. Ri is tied with the Supremes and Madonna for the most #1 records. In total sales, Ri has sold over 100million, Beyonce about 70 million. Ri will soon pass Madonna and the Supremes to clinch the top spot.Beyonce is not close. But Beyonce gives it all at live concets no doubt about it.

  53. Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 15, 2013

    And isn’t it convenient that this news is coming out now, when Katy’s dragging of Caca’s wig is saturating the headlines, she (Beyonce) wants to prove the public still has any interest in her, I cannot.

    No one is talking about her now, so she fabricates a few stories like the half truth article above, and the blatant lie about ‘HEAT’ air freshener, to garner attention.

    Transparent, LOCAL, t***** looking b****, especially with that new Rihanna inspired haircut.

    • Jas August 15, 2013

      Beyonce is a better album seller than Rihanna. Hell, Katy Perry is even a better album seller than Rihanna. It took her seven album releases just to reach the 100 mill mark. So yes, the fact still remains. Your fave is still a lessor when it comes to albums sales. Despite the fact, that she’s released so many albums and songs. So lets not talk about CD’s #No Shade.

  55. XXX August 15, 2013

    Yes Yes Yes I live for the breakdowns.

  56. Lovebird (Roar – PRISM – 10.22.13)) August 15, 2013

    And I cannot at her hiding that FLOPPY 5th album for the Gods, even after she told GQ there would be new music before the Superbowl, sometime in April and yet it is August.

    This, even after recording 100,000 songs according to Gay Z. What is the t***** scared of? She should also maybe prance around naked in the forest, she might get some attention instead of sinking further in the abyss of irrelevancy where ‘4’ took her. How many top 10s for that boring elevator music again?

    So ‘4’ is on its THIRD re-release and it is still stuck in limbo at 2.8 million sold worldwide. I can now see why she’s hiding that 5th Floppy disc for the Gods.

    I mean if after recording 100,000 songs according to Gay Z, the best you can come up with is Grown Woman and Bow down, generic hot mess, then I can see why she has tucked her tail between her legs and accepted her has-been status.

Rih has the best chance to be the next Zoe saldana. She is young, slim, s***, swaged and has so much kick ass. Vin diesel is still trying to get rihanna on fast furios. Danile craig sais s rihanna can be next bong girl

    Rihanan is good! Her catalogue in the so commercially strong in the USA, she will no doubt headline a superbowl. They do not play beyonce on POP radio out here in LA, but, I did hear baby boy – from 2003, her only good era when she running it.

    Since rihanna got signed she has been fizzling slowly but surely ,Beyonce will never domINATE USA radio ever ever again.

    As you can see, they do not play any blacks, except rihanna. I cannot see beyonce breaking through , even with a radio deal. The musical landscape in the USA is not as clear cut as u think. And heavy aggressive beyonce, rita ora desperate style promo will not make u slay on radio.

    Steven spielberg is rihanna’s lives near her. he called her beautiful and talented and put her in a now movie for 2014.

    Vin diesel said the prodcers of F and F have been trying to get rih as lead lady for a few years.

    Daniel craig said she can be next bond girl. Rih is a bad ass b****, she can play a super hero. BYE FAT OLD BEYONCE, WIT YO WACK LOOKING OLD LDAY HAIR CUT

      • Jess August 15, 2013

        @Cici4Ever Wow what kind of Ciara stan are you? Its one thing to dislike Beyonce but dang! Your backing the Navy? The same people who stan for an artist who doesn’t even like or respect your fave. Rihanna literally embarrassed Cici on multiple social networks. While Beyonce and Ciara don’t even have beef. So what you are sayin is weak as f***. Way to be loyal to your fave.

  77. rita whora will never make it big like Rihanna. August 15, 2013

    HAVE YALL seen beyonce latest hair? Now she is tryna copy kerri hilson blond bob and she looks a HOT AS F*** MESS. MY lord, rihanna bodied her up. She is struggling to pay catch up.

    And rih’s new clothing line for fall is called Riri G4L and all the fashionista are killing to get it. Beyonce is over! O.V.E.R!

    • Rih rox August 15, 2013

      YASS spill that tea lol BEYOLDCE IS A DONE WASH UP OLD MAN!

      • RIhanna is BIGGER THN BEYONCE EVER WAS August 15, 2013

        THERE IS AN ARTICLE in DAILY STAR, that beyonce hates her new hair ( AKA being forced to play catch to rihanan ) that she has asked her stylist to pack a suitcase filled with wigs and weaves in case her onfidence melts.

        HA HA HA HA EVE ” TRYING ” TO be the queen rihanan is denting her self esteem. Rih plays the leading lady in ASAP ROCKY FASHION KILLA.

      • Yaz August 15, 2013

        Daily Star is a joke you do know that right?

    • Barbz August 15, 2013

      Damn how did the hives drag beyonce on a hives post?

      Rihanna > bey washedup trannyce.

      • Jess August 15, 2013

        Why the f*** are all of you Barbs, Navy stans, and CSquad members just so happening to say the same thing? With the exception of the dislike and like button the Hive won fasho. But aye thats just me.

  78. Barb B**** August 15, 2013

    NOOOO these comments. I did chuckle. The Hive won that round sorry Navy.

    • Lana del slay August 15, 2013

      Lol clearly your on the wrong post sorry but the navy won.

      • Barb B**** August 15, 2013

        Nah lol.

    • Lana del slay August 15, 2013

      Na defiantly the navy lol duhh

      • Jess August 15, 2013

        Nah F*** the likes and dislikes. The hive are short in numbers but they went in tonight. Surprisingly.

  79. Bey Fan August 15, 2013

    Thats my girl…..always coming out on top…

    As a Beyonce fan, I will not say she is a great actress. But there are a lot and I mean A LOT of actors that I think are horrible.

  80. Bey Fan August 15, 2013

    I love my Hive….. kiii

  81. Rosie August 15, 2013

    That’s cool.
    Let me grab popcorn for this post since I missed this + Z-Squad (who can’t even bother to put as much effort into buying their Fave’s music than they do coming for more relevant artists) flop attempts to drag Lana.

  82. RIhanna is BIGGER THN BEYONCE EVER WAS August 15, 2013



  83. Yaz August 15, 2013

    Hahaha yesss Beyhive DRAG EM FOR FILTH!

  84. Tyler August 15, 2013


  85. Third Ward Trill (AKA QUETTA) August 16, 2013

    Hahaha,damn love the hive. Rich and loyalty took it home with those videos.

  86. BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 16, 2013

    The navi and non-factor squad better shut the f*** up-unless they wanna get b**** slapped out of their damn senses. Anyways,good for her. Giving us more reason to be proud enough to be part of the hive

  87. Everyone’s A Critic August 16, 2013

    Im a massive bey fan, I’m seeing her tomorrow at V festival… !!!!!! But i know her acting isn’t that great ;/ i liked her in fighting temptations and she acts well on stage (cos we all know her crowd interactions and speeches are staged) and in her videos, but WHITNEY was the best pop star turned actor, followed by Jamie Foxx and Aaliyah

  88. Blue ivy carter Rodriguez August 16, 2013

    This is a recycled article, you reported something similar months ago. I’m happy that she so happened to be in the movie and got that achievement (it could have gone to anyone) but these Stan’s are acting like its Beyoncé that made the movie a smash hit. The Austin powers franchise was a success based off of mike Myers. If Beyoncé could make those sales then her other movies would display the same feat.

  89. Kisses Down Low August 16, 2013

    Congrats to Beyonce. If it was any of our faves we would be celebrating too.
