Published: Saturday 5th Oct 2013 by David

‘The Beatles’ legend Paul McCartney has named ‘End Of Time‘ performer Beyonce as one his inspirations, revealing that he seeks out her work when readying ideas for his concert showings!

His words below…

Speaking to NME, the ‘When I’m Sixty Four’ singer revealed:

If I’m gonna do a tour I like to go and see what other people are doing. I don’t wanna bring my tour out and be amazingly old-fashioned.”So if people are going, ‘Oh man, Beyonce, she was killer!’ I like to go there and go, ‘Yeah, we can do better than this.’ ”

#NowPlaying: Beyonce – ‘Diva’…

  2. Stop the drama Start the music October 5, 2013

    Who isn’t impressed by Beyonce tho? Even her haters are. Her halftime show was amazing. So much better than Madonna’s!

    • Common Sense October 5, 2013

      Let’s not reach for the stars now…

      • Stop the drama Start the music October 5, 2013

        B**** stfu. It’s my opinion. And it WAS. A 50 year old woman just won’t have the same stage presence anymore as 30 year old. *proudly reaches for the stars*

    • Anne October 5, 2013

      Her Emmy award winning halftime show that is. And I agree, any entertainer who wants to strive for the best would have respect for her.

  3. BeyWhoUWanna October 5, 2013

    Poor Rihanna can’t keep a man, but Beyonce out here collecting celebrity stans.

    • Ju don’t even know October 5, 2013

  4. Rosie October 5, 2013

    Well he is part of THE most legendary band in history, so I’ll take his word for it.

    • TIsForTamar October 5, 2013

      Old men respect Beyonce.
      Old men only want to sleep with Lipna.

      • Rosie October 5, 2013

        And only fat whale-looking bottoms want Flopmar.

  5. Ju don’t even know October 5, 2013

    And Obama’s called Nelson Mandela an inspiration to the world…*YAWNS* no point of is bogus post tbh.

  6. Ju don’t even know October 5, 2013

    Paul mcCartney is the true inspiration I’d say.

  7. SLAY_HIVE (SASHA IS COMING) October 5, 2013

    *ADDS TO LONG LIST OF LEGENDS PRAISING BEYONCE*

    THEIR OPINIONS>>>>>>>>>>>> yours kiiii 😉 😉

  8. Mark111 October 5, 2013

    I don’t think you all are reading this correctly. He said when people are like “Beyoncé was killer.” Then he go and say “we can do better than that.” Is not saying we are inspired by her. Just means he can adjust his show to impress the youth.

    But Bey always been praised by legends. I already wrote my essay on it.

    • HappyBirthdayQueenBeyonce (YaaaasBitchURTheQueen) October 5, 2013

      Shut up you loose p**** b****. He praised Beyonce so f*** off to f*** town ya f*****.

    • Bobby October 5, 2013

      Paul McCartney previously has said that he didn’t want to go on X-Factor but because Beyoncé did he thought if its good enough for her its good enough for him.

  9. Loyalty October 5, 2013

    Paul McCartney BEEN a Beyoncé fan for AGES. Hes been to her shows on multiple occasions and has take her to dinner as well.

  10. Suicide Blonde October 5, 2013

    He didn’t said she’s one of his inspirations, he was talking about her shows, don’t you dare to sabotage his words Hive, he’s a f****** Beatle, don’t use him the way you do with every Star who praises Beyonce, not with him, respect him, after all he has always been the NICE Beatle, didn’t George Harrison believed that Madonna was the best singer in the world, was he right?, you don’t see her fans talking about this, that’s one of the complex the Hive needs to overcome, the obse. to believe that Beyonce is better than anyone else because people compliments her.

    • Yeah I Said It October 5, 2013

      Oh please, its not the Hive reporting its as that.

    • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

      The Hive are desperate to push Beyonce’s false legendary image.

    • Stephy Tha Lambily October 5, 2013

    Well u don’t say. That Rihc*nt @ etone was mad as hell when I related this story n the old QUEEN post. The c*nt tried to say musicians have to honor musicians. Just because a Beatle was praising THE QUEEN. But if his words were true. Then why don’t I hear any praise from other musicians about Hoeianna. #THE FAWKED UP DELUSIONAL

      Typical Rihc*nt to bring Hoeianna in something that have nothing to do with her. B**** u jealous? Run back R****’s rotten infected c****** b****.

  15. Sass October 5, 2013

    Its not a coincidence that he used Beyonces as an example of a KILLER show and not others. Come on now. Stop letting your dislike for Beyonce get in the way. Paul knows whats real, and yes he does respect Beyonce I was at the same Beyonce Roseland Ballroom show as him. Not everyone can get a Beatle at their show.

  16. DIGGER BEY October 5, 2013

    THE QUEEN is One of The Greats! Paul has seen performers from the 50s to now. So he knows what true stage slayers looks like. THE QUEEN is right around the corner of being an IMMORTAL! #2013/2014…..THE YEARS OF THE QUEEEEEEEEEEN

    • etone October 5, 2013

      what he does not know is beyonce is a thief. Paul don’t know how fake her image is.

      2013/2014………… # 1 THEEEEEEEEEEF

      • SLAY_HIVE (SASHA IS COMING) October 5, 2013

        The only person who seems to pressed about it, is you!!!

        RIHJECT IS A THIEF/SWAGGERJACKER! BYE

      • DIGGER BEY October 6, 2013

        Bwahahahahahahahahaaha U mad that Hoeianna never recieves any praise. Except for being an amazing Industry P****.

  17. Sass October 5, 2013

    He also went to Watch the Throne LOLOLOL. I think Paul is another ‘Carter’ stan.

  18. Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

    LMAO Beyonce fans….SMH.

    “If I’m gonna do a tour I like to go and see what other people are doing. I don’t wanna bring my tour out and be amazingly old-fashioned.”So if people are going, ‘Oh man, Beyonce, she was killer!’ I like to go there and go, ‘Yeah, we can do better than this.’ ”

    First of all, mis-leading headline. Secondly, Beyonce fans cannot comprehend what they read.

    I’ll give you a guide, see where it says If I’m gonna do a tour I like to go and see what other people are doing., he just cited Beyonce as an example, see here, “So if people are going, ‘Oh man, Beyonce, she was killer!’ I like to go there and go, ‘Yeah, we can do better than this.’”, now read and comprehend.

    • Sass October 5, 2013

      Yeah you are mad, is that why hes always at Beyoncé shows and didn’t uses Rihanna as an example?

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

        So Beyonce’s shows are the only shows he attends?

      • Sass October 5, 2013

        Only current pop star I know he has been to more than once, yeah.

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

        The question is, does he only attend Beyonce concerts?

      • Sass October 5, 2013

        Tell me which other pop girls show he attends because I don’t know. I would love to know.

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

        So you’ve failed to answer the question?

      • Sass October 5, 2013

        I don’t know the answer, which is why I said you tell me?

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

        He said OTHER PEOPLE, not Person. Beyonce’s shows are not the only ones he attends.

      • Sass October 5, 2013

        Yawn! But why did he quote Beyonce then, when hes been to her shows and praised her. She is ONE of the ‘other people’ simpleton.

    • SLAY_HIVE (SASHA IS COMING) October 5, 2013

      No hating ass b****…. Beyonce is the STANDARD!! When someone inspires you, you admire them but strive to be better! That what he’s saying sweetheart

      Don’t be upset because he didnt mention your fave 😉

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

        I would read you like the book of Genesis, but I doubt your 5th grade education level will be able to fully grasp and understand anything I say.

      • SLAY_HIVE (SASHA IS COMING) October 5, 2013

        Lol typical lovebird….has no response, so belittle my education level!!

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

      • SLAY_HIVE (SASHA IS COMING) October 5, 2013

        Wrong person dumb tLool

    • Suicide Blonde October 5, 2013

      Amen!, to bad is too late, they have him in the list already, see comments above.

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

        LOL, I’ve seen that, I give up.

    • So what b****!!! Who gonna stop me??? October 5, 2013

      True they are a bunch of low IQ b******..SMH @ Lovebird

      • Loyalty October 5, 2013

        You only sound dumb saying that^

  19. Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

    Also, If Paul really wants to be inspired by Beyonce’s tour, he should go see the original instead (Dance again tour).

    This Beyonce tour is a rip-off rehashed version of J-Lo’s Dance Again tour.

    • SLAY_HIVE (SASHA IS COMING) October 5, 2013

      No one cares for J.Lo<<<<<<

      Get over it..he mentioned the real queen!

    • Gilberto October 5, 2013

      What? Dance Again Tour is already a cheap rip-off of The Beyoncé Experience. From the lighting set and stage design to outfits. J.Low stole everything.
      AND no one can get inspired by J.No’s talentlessness ass. Just remember that.

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

        LMAO, the excuses, I can’t.

      • Gilberto October 5, 2013

        I don’t use excuses. I have FACTS. Beyoncé is waiting for her paycheck from J.No for stealing concepts from her successful tour.

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

        Is that why Beyonce specifically requested for J-Lo’s stage director?

      • XXX October 5, 2013

        Beyoncé worked with Kim before J Lo. Come correct.

      • Gilberto October 5, 2013

        Kim worked on The Beyoncé Experience which Dance Again Tour is based on.

    • musiclover October 5, 2013

      a few weeks ago u were saying how beyonce is giving her fans the beyonce experience and i am sasha fierce all over again…now u saying she took it from jlo

  20. Yeah I Said It October 5, 2013

    • Sass October 5, 2013

      Looks like some people are just pressed.

    • Gilberto October 5, 2013

      “1. To affect, guide, or arouse by divine influence.”

      Divine influence? That’s totally Beyoncé.

  22. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 5, 2013

    Where exactly did he say Beyonce inspires him. I keep re-reading the quote and still cannot find that sentence.

  23. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 5, 2013

    Where exactly did he say Beyonce inspires him? I keep re-reading the quote and still cannot find that sentence.

  24. Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

    @Slayriah,

    The thing is Beyonce uses the word so much when she steals from other people that the hive do not even know the meaning.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 5, 2013

      Lol. They’re so dumb.

      • SLAY_HIVE (SASHA IS COMING) October 5, 2013

        And both of you are bitter!! POOR ZAT!

    • THE MRS SLAYER SHOW October 5, 2013

      so what does being inspired mean Loose p**** H** ???because that waht he meant

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

        LOOK IT UP

        [Madonna]awesomegifs.com/wp-content/uploads/a58b68.gif[Madonna]

  25. Yolo October 5, 2013

    Yes him saying that means he was inspired by Beyonce. Do some of yall know what inspired means?

    DEAD at people acting like its TGJ making this up as well.

  26. Gilberto October 5, 2013

    Beyoncé is slaying all these h*** without new music. Damn! Two massive deals. A succesful movie. An iconic performance on Super Bowl. Upstaggging the president on the Inauguration (who else?). A 200-million world tour.

  27. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 5, 2013

    The hive a zero comprehension skills. He just used Beyonce’s name as an example. He didn’t say that he actually purchased tickets, went to a Beyonce concert, pulled out a pen and paper and immediately started taking notes. Smh

    • XXX October 5, 2013

      He has been to Beyonces concerts many times though lol.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 5, 2013

        But did he say that Beyonce’s performances inspired him when he went on tour though??

      • XXX October 5, 2013

        Do you know what inspiration means? LOL. Its a form of motivation to do better. Which is what hes saying. You people sound so pressed.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 5, 2013

        Did he say Beyonce was his “motivation to do better?”

      • XXX October 5, 2013

        Yeah in so many words dumbass!

  28. Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

    Here’s another tip for the hive, there’s a difference between saying, If I’m gonna do a tour I like to go and see what “other people” are doing and saying, If I’m gonna do a tour I like to go and see what “Beyonce” is doing, now which one did he say?

    Your desperation is showing.

    • XXX October 5, 2013

      Honey, tell that all the Journalists with degrees that are writing the same. Not the Hive.

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

        Clearly you don’t read the news often do you?. Journalists, even the ones with degrees, misquote people all the time for a catchy headline. Nothing new.

      • XXX October 5, 2013

        No honey, the fact that Paul McCartney has praised Beyoncé before and been to her shows, means that him using her as an example is praise. In his own words he doesn’t want to be ‘old-fashioned’. So he looks at people like her shows to be motivated.

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

        LMAO, this is a misquote again.

        He said he likes to see what OTHER PEOPLE are doing so he can remain modern.

        He just cited Beyonce as an example. Unless he specifically stated that he likes to see what Beyonce is doing, that OTHER PEOPLE could be any number of artists.

        He may attend Beyonce shows often, but Beyonce shows are not the only shows he attends.

      • XXX October 5, 2013

        You’re just scraping the barrel as for any reason. Its really funny.

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

        Scrapping the barrel? I’m just putting Paul’s quote in the context with which it is meant.

      • XXX October 5, 2013

        Hes using Beyoncé has an EXAMPLE of a good show hes watched. The standard of a ‘Killer’ show. What hard to digest?

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

        But that doesn’t mean he is inspired by Beyonce.

      • XXX October 5, 2013

        Yes it does, if you think without hate.

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

        it doesn’t

      • XXX October 5, 2013

        Yes it does.

  29. XXX October 5, 2013

    People are so pressed. All you have to do is look up the many articles with the same heading to know its not this site being deluded.
    Btw Paul being into Beyonce is nothing new.

      • COOL October 5, 2013

        She used to during MOTS/AGLM era. After that she said many times that Madonna is her biggest inspiration.

      • SLAY_HIVE (SASHA IS COMING) October 5, 2013

        Lol BUT WHO WAS FIRST?? SHE TRIED TO MODEL HERSELF AFTER BEYONCE, DIDNT WORK! NOW SHE WANTS TO BE THE BLACK MADONNA??? KIII WHO IS RIHANNA?

      • Brandys Starr October 5, 2013

        Ok well if you’re both highlighting how Beyonce and Rihanna acknowledge and respect each other why are you fans still arguing?

  30. RICHIE_RICH October 5, 2013

    Beyhive don’t waste time on the haters. Read em with FACTS. BEYONCE>>>>>>>>>YOU’RE FAVE WITH NO NEW MUSIC

  31. JER October 5, 2013

    Not you idiots unable to see the drag. He is basically saying people talked up how amazing BeYAWNce is live, but Paul McCartney went to see her, and wasn’t blown away and knew he could do better. You fools couldn’t detect an ounce of shade in the dark. SMH!

    • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

      LMAO, I thought I was the only one who caught that shade.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 5, 2013

      LMAO!

    • XXX October 5, 2013

      Wow the people on this site are more pressed than I thought. He watched good performers so he doesn’t come across old fashioned!

    • Ms92 October 5, 2013

      No honey, hes just British we talk like that. Its not shade.

    • So what b****!!! Who gonna stop me??? October 5, 2013

      I caught that too! Dumb beehive!

  32. Gilberto October 5, 2013

    Let’s look up on OXFORD DICTIONARY:

    INSPIRATION
    “the process of being MENTALLY STIMULATED TO DO OR OR FEEL something, especially to DO SOMETHING CREATIVE.”

    “So if people are going, ‘Oh man, Beyonce, she was killer!’ I like to go there and go, ‘Yeah, we can do better than this.’”

    Beyoncé’s tour INSPIRED him to come harder on his next tour. The fact that he said that he can do better than Beyoncé means that she stimulated him to do better.

    • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

      And this? “If I’m gonna do a tour I like to go and see what “other people” are doing”

      Maybe if it was quoted on Portuguese, it might be easier for you to grasp. But I do not speak Portuguese so I cannot help you out there, sorry.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 5, 2013

      You are so delusional.
      The keyword in his statement is “IF”

    • THE MRS SLAYER SHOW October 5, 2013

      JESUS FINALLY THANK YOU!!! is it that hard to understand??/

  33. DIGGER BEY October 5, 2013

    Lmfaooooo Slayshit Wishes he had use Mooriah as an example. Now if he would’ve been describing Has been Flop B****** who sound like a dying frog. Then he would of use Moofausa as a example.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 5, 2013

      Do you think I give a f*** about Paul McCartney? Mariah has had plenty of big name musicians like Patti and Stevie Wonder talk highly of her. #StupidBitch

      • SLAY_HIVE (SASHA IS COMING) October 5, 2013

        And the same two have also praised Beyonce!! We also cant forget her EPIC performances with Prince and Tina Turner ORhow much MJ ADORED Bey 😉

      • DIGGER BEY October 5, 2013

        Are we mad bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha. The only people praising Moofaussa is Nick Cornball Cannon.

  34. Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

    So by Hive logic, Other people = Beyonce.

    Also more on Hive logic, if he cited Justin Bieber or attends Justin Bieber concerts, then he’s inspired by Justin Bieber. I JUST F****** CANNOT.

    • SLAY_HIVE (SASHA IS COMING) October 5, 2013

      But he didnt mention Bieber!! He mentioned the STANDARD for performance excellence!! SEETHE BITCHHHH LOOL

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

      • SLAY_HIVE (SASHA IS COMING) October 5, 2013

        No b**** you’re missing the point!! You’re letting your hate for Beyonce cloud your judgement!! MOLLY 😉

    • DIGGER BEY October 5, 2013

      Delusional TROLL No Life B**** you’re always Missing The Point. I see what Paul was saying. He’s saying THE QUEEN has the best shows. That wasn’t his words but we all know what he was saying.

    Did you guys hear? Stephy The Lambily and Suicide Blonde are being perma banned.

    Paul McCartney has praised Beyonce before, let them be mad.

  37. RICHIE_RICH October 5, 2013

    Paul McCartney has heaped praise on Beyonce, admitting that he is inspired by the singer and uses her energetic performances to psych himself up for his own concerts.

    The former Beatles singer admitted that he measured his own performances against the Love on Top singer’s stage shows, revealing that he tries to do even better.

    He told NME magazine: ”If I’m gonna do a tour I like to go and see what other people are doing. I don’t wanna bring my tour out and be amazingly old-fashioned.

    ”So if people are going, ‘Oh man Beyonce, she was killer!’ I like to go there and go, ‘Yeah, we can do better than this.’ ”

    Well, he must be doing something right as it was revealed in August that the Beatles are still racking in the money 50 years after forming in the 60s, earning a staggering £43.5 million last year.

    A source at the time told the Daily Star: “The Beatles have been the most famous band in the world since the 60s and it keeps on paying.

    ”The obsession with the Fab Four has never stopped, even half a century after they started. So the money just keeps rolling in.”

    Paul also added that he found a deeper respect for hip-hop after watching Bey’s husband Jay Z perform with Kanye West on their Watch the Throne.

    ”I was expecting it to be, ‘Oh it’s great, it’s hip-hop, it’s loud,’ but I hadn’t until then got the urban poetry element,” he gushed.

    YOU KNOW THE HATERS WILL ALWAYS PUT A SPIN TO.
    Beyonce’>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>you’re fav without any new music.

    • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

      Paul McCartney has heaped praise on Beyonce, admitting that he is inspired by the singer and uses her energetic performances to psych himself up for his own concerts.

      That right there is a misquote and poor journalism, considering Paul did not say that anywhere in the quote.

      • XXX October 5, 2013

        Girl you’re so pressed! Paul McCartney has even taken Beyonce to dinner! He is a fan of both her and Jays, which is why he used her as an example! Get over it!

      • DIGGER BEY October 5, 2013

        C*nt we all know we want remotely hear anything like that about your poptart favs. #ROAR ON H**

    Paul like many others have been duped by thief beyonce. I am 100% sure he is unaware of how much she steals

    • SLAY_HIVE (SASHA IS COMING) October 5, 2013

      Girl bye with that recycled mess!! Dont even mention thieving when Rihject was just exposed yesterday!!

      And she has stolen viseo concepts from PLENTY artist for past videos!! Dont make me post receipts b****!!!! Lol

    • XXX October 5, 2013

      But the irony is, The Beatles have admitted they ‘steal everything’

      • etone October 5, 2013

        PAUL AND OTHER STARS ARE UN-AWARE LIKE MANY PEOPLE

        THAT THIEF BEYONCE IS A COPYCAT RIP OFF.

      • XXX October 5, 2013

        How do you know? Are you in their brain? The Beatles stole too so I doubt they would care anyway.

      • Gilberto October 5, 2013

        Whoever says that he/she doesn’t steal or get inspired by something is a f****** liar.

  39. Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

    At this point I won’t even bother anymore.

    Awaiting next spin headline, Jesus coming down to earth to watch Beyonce concert

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 5, 2013

      F*** the hive! They make the biggest thing out of nothing.
      Anyway… Who is hotter Nick or Joe Jonas?

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) October 5, 2013

        Nick of course. Those arms <33333

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 5, 2013

        I vote Nick for body but definitely Joe for face. He’s really handsome.

    • Stop the drama Start the music October 5, 2013

      Lol somebody is discouraged.

  40. Gilberto October 5, 2013

    From all the singers and bands that have been touring, he mentioned Beyoncé. Do you know what I call this? I-M-P-A-C-T.

    • Fran October 5, 2013

      Exactly. Its funny to watch them seethe.

    • SLAY_HIVE (SASHA IS COMING) October 5, 2013

      Right!!! H** bird is seething!! KIIIII

    • etone October 5, 2013

      its called being duped and scammed.
      many of the famous are un-aware of how much of an industry thief … she is.

      Do you know what I call this?

      being R-I-PP-ED- -O-FF.

      • RICHIE_RICH October 5, 2013

        How so? If anything her peers would have more knowledge of her being a thief then the public.

        Please explain you’re logic I’m dying to know.

  41. Fran October 5, 2013

    I saw Paul McCartney at Jay Zs concert too. He is definitely a Carter fan. They cant handle it. Why didn’t he use Justin Bieber, Katy Perry or Rihanna as an example?

    • Gilberto October 5, 2013

      Because they aren’t example of any s***. Actually, they’re good examples of s***.

  42. Starships October 5, 2013

    Erm, I’m not a Hive member but I can see he is praising Beyonce the simple fact he used her. She has reputation for ‘killer’ shows which is why he used her name out of everyone. People need to chill.

    • RICHIE_RICH October 5, 2013

      They will slice and dice anyway possible.

  43. Micks October 5, 2013

    All the legends prise Beyonce. This is nothing new. Its definitely not new with Paul McCartney. Death at people having breakdowns why this cannot be so!!!

  44. Mark111 October 5, 2013

    These Bey stan, heck, stans in general live through these celebs. They on here jumping up and down as if they just got a full scholarship to Harvard.

    And I’m no Bey hater, Bey is the best, but her legendary status will come when it’s time, not forced. She’s always in legendary lane, let her get there first.

    @Lovebird, the way you shut these stans down simply amazes me, lol.

    • DIGGER BEY October 5, 2013

      Loveshit shuts nothing down here. The c*nt might shut u and other h*** down. That c*nt or any other b**** will never shut THE HIVE down! Best Believe. And we know what THE QUEEN means to the music industry. We’re just letting u b****** know who RUN THIS S***! #NOW BOW DOWN

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 5, 2013

        Beyonce will never meet Ciara on the stage though. Ciara would s*** all over Bey and flush her down the toilette.

        B***** could never meet Mariah/Whitney I their primes vocally. They’d destroy that B***** and make her wish she never dreamedof a career as a thief, i mean “musician.”

      • Ms92 October 5, 2013

        Oh please. Ciara is a glorified back up dancer with her back bends. Beyonce is an all round performer with the voice, the charisma, moves and presence. That’s rare you get someone that can do it all.

    • RICHIE_RICH October 5, 2013

      Who did lovebird shut down doe?

      • SLAY_HIVE (SASHA IS COMING) October 5, 2013

        Gurl she’s stuck on Delusion Boulevard!!

        You the b**** PRESSEDBIRD has left the building! #clocked and #booted looool

      • SLAY_HIVE (SASHA IS COMING) October 5, 2013

        *see

    • Ms92 October 5, 2013

      He didn’t shut anyone down, just looked very pressed as usual.

    • Stop the drama Start the music October 5, 2013

      All hoebird does is show how delusional and pressed he is everyday. Shutting who down?

  45. Tash October 5, 2013

    What I really want to know is why people are so bothered about Beyonce stans?
    Its clear Paul is inspired by younger acts like Beyonce, because he has been to her shows. You only attend peoples shows you can get something from, and for him, its modernizing his show. He knows she is good performer which is why he used her. Let praise be praise. And its not like this is a first.

  46. RICHIE_RICH October 5, 2013

    Beyonce is the only artist that causes breakdowns chile. lol

    • DIGGER BEY October 5, 2013

      Yes Lmaooooooooooo

  47. AJ4TnK October 5, 2013

    Am I the only one who read & fully understood this article? Paul claims he can “DO BETTER” than Beyonce. What inspiration?

  48. Ms92 October 5, 2013

    It makes sense. I think people would raise an eyebrow if he replaced Beyonce with Justin Bieber as motivation to do better. He knows exactly why he said Beyonce. Because she is the standard of great performing for this generation.

    Its so funny to see people tearing away at every miniscule word when it was a casual quote. And THEN… he went on to praise JAY Z, her husband. Which confirms it all the more.

  49. AMMIE LEANN October 5, 2013

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, He murdered thiefonce, practically he is saying that he is not impressed, and Paul is so right, she is nothing but a booty shaker.

  50. Ms92 October 5, 2013

    And people trying to make it out as shade, sound stupid as well. Everyone and their mama uses the saying ‘do better’ when motivated.

  51. DIGGER BEY October 5, 2013

    Lmfao @ Slayshit still trying lmaoooooooo. Gurl just leave it be. THE QUEEN has already passed Moofauso as an Greater Artist. And I see you’re still stuck down memory lane. Katy Perry Slays Moofauso n the vocal catorgory today. #BYE B****

    WHEN WILL R****? ALL THE DUMB NAVY TELL ME WHEN THAT FLOP H** WILL INSPIRE SOMEONE?
    BEYONCE ALREADY A LEGEND. FLOPANNA KEEPS STEALING AND EXPOSING HER SMALL ASS

    • COOL October 5, 2013

      Demi Lovato
      Cheryl Cole
      Justin Bieber
      Rita Ora
      Willow Smith
      Miley Cyrus
      Selena Gomez
      The Saturdays
      Ellie Goulding

      and many others cite Rihanna ad their influence and they are among biggest artists of our generation.

      Patti Smith praised Rihanna and said she’s her new passion with Stay.
      Fun said that Rihanna was their main inspiration for Some Nights album and that they had her picture on the wall while they were doing album.
      Celine Dion said she would like to do a duet with Rihanna.
      Your fav said that she is beautiful, talented and fantastic.
      Gaga called her wonderful.
      Most of her contemporaries praised her – Adele, Ke$ha, Katy Perry.
      She performed with Elthon John, Bon Jovi, Coldplay, Sting and many others.

      Just because you hate her doesn’t mean that she is not respected. She certainly is.

      And Beyonce is not a legend. And Rihanna is not a flop h**. That would be your mother for giving birth to a trash like you.

      • Stop the drama Start the music October 5, 2013

        Selena, Demi, Ellie goulding the Saturdays Rita Ora Cheryl cole are NOT big artists. Only two Artists u named r big somewhat….

      • DIGGER BEY October 5, 2013

        H** just stop it. Nobody gives a damn about Rihoeanna. The only praise she gets is for her mouth going down on c****.

      • HOWYOULIKEIT October 5, 2013

        @ cool. No i wont buy those lies. To many lessers on that list. How can a child be one of the biggest artists of our generation? Justine was spanked on TV for being foolish and rude. If those artists are your standards then R**** is staying a flop. The Queen runs it with the OBAMAS.

  54. Marcellas October 5, 2013

    Omg I remember there was a video floating around of Paul jamming to ‘Party’ at Roseland #TooCute.

    It’s Really No Use Of Explaining Anything To Those Who Hate Beyonce (Or Any Other Artist In That Manner). They Will Continue To Hate, Whether That Artist Does Something Good Or Bad.

    Clearly Paul McCartney Is Inspired By Beyonce.

    & That’s All I Have To Say!

  58. Molly October 5, 2013

    Like I’ve said before the hive needs peoples approval of Beyonce.

    • Ms92 October 5, 2013

      No they don’t, Beyoncé just gets it. I’m sure if your fav got it you would be doing the same.

  59. LDN Chick October 5, 2013

    These legends are not stupid with who they pick and choose to acknowledge.
    Beyonce haters are so f****** entertaining. The grasping of straws is too real. And clearly its bothering you.
    Did you stop to think why he said Beyonces name? Or the fact Beyonce stood out in his mind?
    And hes talking about changing his show for the better, which is a form of inspiration. Bloody fools.

  60. So what b****!!! Who gonna stop me??? October 5, 2013

    The beeHIVE are dumb ass f***! What do you expect from a bunch of low IQ b******??? It states nothing about him being inspired by beyawnce! Damn the only thing the beeHIVe do is reinforce how stupid they are! simple comprehension you dumb f****! LOL damn

  61. So what b****!!! Who gonna stop me??? October 5, 2013

    SIMPLETONS! Join the beehive, and watch how fast an IQ can go down! it’s like watching Nelly retardo album sales in 2013! That s*** will just hit rock bottom!

    • Brandys Starr October 5, 2013

      You sound silly saying that.

  62. Brandys Starr October 5, 2013

    Yes he did praise Beyonce. Get over it Im not a Beyonce stan and I can accept that. And yes he was inspired by her, if you know the true meaning of being inspired you can be inspired by anyone, not just people ‘above’ you.

  63. Hush October 5, 2013

    Heh. Seethe, you jealous naysayers…seethe. Paul is just the latest in a LONG list of celebrities who gush over Beyonce. She has more celebrity stans than all of her contemporaries, and that’s largely because unlike most of the people she’s compared to, Beyonce actually has talent. So be mad! A f****** BEATLE is showering the one and only Beyonce was acknowledgment and adoration. Yep, be mad because he’s definitely NOT doing using big foreheaded, non-singing clowns like Rihanna as an example for anything good! Heh! Seethe!

  64. Loyalty October 5, 2013

    Omg this post is hilarious. Its not that serious. Its already been established he has preference for Beyonce anyway.

    The meltdowns on this thread …… :]

    Beyonce has such a BIG ASS list of LEGENDS and icons who have praised her / given her creadits / STANNED for her, and it only keeps going longer and longer …

    200+ celebrities already attended “The Mrs. Carter Show” in the states …

    Anyway, STAN Paul!

    • HOWYOULIKEIT October 6, 2013

      And Flopanna would never. That’s why haters are so mad. Long life to the one and only Queen

  68. The Evil Eye October 5, 2013

    LOL@the haters. Just makes you crazy, doesn’t it? Yet another celeb throwing praise at Bey’s feet. From the president and first lady to Streisand to this time it being a mutha f***** Beatle, a rock legend! Those valentines cards just never stop coming in for Mrs. Carter!

    Doesn’t Bey just remind you of that soft, golden, pretty girl in HS who was an honor roll student, president of student council, homecoming queen, was popular with EVERYBODY (students & teachers), and had all the boys salivating and fighting over her, while in the meantime frumpy dumpy bitter fat girls like Lovebird and their outcast f@gg0t friends like Suicide Blonde sat at the loser lunch table and just seethed in mad jealously over the affection and attention she got but they didn’t! Ha!

  69. Third Ward Trill (aka quetta) October 6, 2013

    If it were any other celeb would you haters be okay?? You people really want to see beyonce fail and it is hurting you that she hasn’t. Especially, dumb bird and stupidriah

    • HOWYOULIKEIT October 6, 2013

      They’ve been cursing Beyonce all their flopping life. Yet the Queen keeps them pressed as f***
