Actress Garcelle Beauvais On Beyonce ‘Grinding’ Statement: ‘It Was Taken Out of Context’

Published: Sunday 23rd Feb 2014 by Rashad

Before TLC‘s T-Boz was treated to a round of stings by Beyonce’s faithful #Beyhive, the week saw actress Garcelle Beauvais swarmed by a barrage of Twitter attacks following (what were perceived to be) disparaging remarks about the ‘Drunk In Love’ diva.

Indeed, as reported here, Beauvais took to our friends at HelloBeautiful to say:

“I love Beyonce. But, I think there has to be a fine line where you have to take responsibility for what you do. I think it’s good to be sexy…It doesn’t have to be everything showing out grinding, all of the time.”

Igniting a social media onslaught as a result, the actress – best known for her role as ‘Fancy’ on ‘The Jamie Foxx Show’ – took to Twitter over the weekend to clear up the confusion:

Many fans of Beyonce cried “foul” as Garcelle was part of a highly publicized Playboy magazine spread where she appeared fully nude.  In response, the actress stated:

    So what did you mean then?

  2. Rosie February 23, 2014

    Death at her trying to backtrack. Typical hypocrite move.

  3. Fran February 23, 2014

    If you support women being s***, then you shouldn’t have a problem with what Beyonce is doing. Because she doesn’t just ‘grind all the time’. She can stand there with a mic and light and slay a ballad at her shows or sit on a stool next to saxaphonist/guitarist and mimick the instrument with her voice. She does many things at her shows besides just grinding. People are so ignorant.

  4. Jamie February 23, 2014

    And yet another one back-pedals.smh LIKE STAND YOUR GROUND!

  5. Sass February 23, 2014

    Lol shes not slick, she got exposed, maybe she thought her comment would slide but you should know thats never the way with anything Beyonce and now she just looks like a contradiction.

  6. DIGGER BEY February 23, 2014

    Apologizing or not, the pressed ass haters thought someone was really calling out THE QUEEN?????? Lmfaooooooooooooo. That’s why u really can’t take what the mags or blogs say. They will twist the hell out of ur words. Look what @ RS did to Drake. The media luv when two heavyweights go back and foward or n this case, an B lister goes after an A lister. **In other news*** I hear people were fainting in Birmingham during TMCS before THE QUEEN even took the stage! #THAT MJ FLOW

  7. truthtea February 23, 2014

    That seems to be everybody’s excuse! “It was taken out of context”…puh-lease! But please BeyBonics, take your meds as prescribed before your illiterate azzes pop off. Not everybody has to like BeyBonic.

  8. AALIYAH STAN FOR LIFE! February 23, 2014

    Back pedaling at its best!


    I strongly feel this Aaliyah album needs to be celebrated more. In July it’ll mark the 14th anniversary of the “Aaliyah” album!
    Classic music that revolutionized R&B and the singles and videos were just outta here! Every single would still perfectly fit well in to todays music because of how futuristic all the song sound like. Long Live Queen Aaliyah! R.I.P!

    Sidenote: It would of been cool to see an Aaliyah & Beyonce collabo!

  9. Yea ok February 23, 2014

    When wil these people learn to keep beyonce name out their mouth if they don’t have anything nice to say? Lol

    She look foolish now. As she should.

  10. Beyonce is not God February 23, 2014

    Beyonce stands what time y’all pray to y’all God lol it’s a shameful Beyoncé is not God people are allow to have opinion

  11. I Will Adorn You February 23, 2014

    Ugh whatever why was she even talking about her in the first place. Beyonce has this pull, everything she does people are over her like a rash. Lord I don’t know but theres something about Beyonce people are obsessed with. Everything becomes more political than it needs to be, no wonder she has a University Course on her.
    Like shes letting her inner s** kitten out, going with how she feels for once its not like she was a nun before really is it?

  12. Diane February 23, 2014

    Just like you said, there are many ways to be s***. You have your way and Beyonce has her way. And Beyonce’s way is NOT overt. She rarely shows skin. She is always wearing nude pantyhose, and rarely goes nude outside of the beach. Just because you were thin and flirtatious on the Jamie Foxx Show did not make you s***. I’m sorry, Fancy is not s***, she’s pretty. Oh, BTW, did I mention that Beyonce will be going home to her HUSBAND who she’s been with over 10 years. Okay.

  13. My Forehead Tho February 23, 2014

    It should be common knowledge by now that if you have any type of celebrity, unless it’s positive, avoid talking about Beyonce period.

  14. Brandys Starr February 23, 2014

    Her statement was stupid anyway because Beyonce doesn’t just grind all the time. Massive reach.

  15. kimbella February 23, 2014

    please she got dragged by the hive so bad she had to retrack her statement smh weak h**.

  16. Slay_hive February 23, 2014

    I so over these fake b****** trying shade and then topping their b******* with “I love Beyonce” B**** PUH-Lease!!

    Beyonce doesn’t grind all the time nor does she pose naked for playboy. The has-beens have been a mess lately. Just like all the worthless hating b****** on this site!

    * throws finger sign* 😉

  17. Stephy Tha Lambily February 23, 2014

    Aaliyah was NOT the reason those songs she did was great.

    Timberland & Missy Elliot was the master minds behind all her material

  18. Jen February 23, 2014

    Beyonce fans all need to burn in hell.

  19. ashley February 23, 2014

    jen the beyonce fans will see you there b****

  20. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. February 23, 2014

    Garcelle spoke nothing but the truth about THIEVINGonce

    Her talent is shaking her cellulite ridden ass on stage in those tired leotards

    THIEVINGonce disgusted America & particularly white America with her vulgar performance at the Grammys and awful lip synching

  21. Ghi February 23, 2014

    TGJ is a Ciara and Beyonce fan site. Swear to God. Who f****** cares. This is not news. Beyonce does act like a NASTY GIRl, just like her old DC song talked about.

  22. My Gums Tho(aka Teacher) February 23, 2014

    I can’t stand a backtracking b****! Say what the f*** you mean and how the f*** you feel and F*** who gets mad about it!

    F*** BEYONCÉ!

  23. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 23, 2014

    Bey is still garbage though

  24. Beyonce the reigning Queen February 23, 2014

    Mariah is still a has been. Beyonce is reigning Queen

  25. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 23, 2014

    I can’t @ how delusional the BeyHive is though. Lol these useless hags believe that one’s career will instantly end if the speak negatively of Beyonce. You bums need to be realistic. Beyonce IS NOT god. Not even Madonna/MJ could end people’s careers so I don’t know why you think B***** can. Lol I can’t.

  26. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 23, 2014

    Reigning queen? lol I know Adele, Taylor, and P!nk are slaying though.

  27. Beyonce the reigning Queen February 23, 2014

    Beyonce is reigning Queen. Don’t know Mariah. My grandma may know her

  28. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 23, 2014

    You stay pressed while I’m laughing and Mariah remains above B*****.

  29. Beyonce the reigning Queen February 23, 2014

    Mariah is so 1965. The world wants Beyonce now. She is the reigning Queen

  30. Kisses Down Low February 23, 2014

    Rihanna fans shouldn’t be coming for anyone on this topic.

  31. Kisses Down Low February 23, 2014

    Let Beyonce do her jeesh! Its been dozens times over but it becomes an issue to people simply because it concerns Beyonce. I love this side to Beyonce, people wanted to see a different side to her, take risks, this is it. Yall will always complain about something just because its Beyonce thats the truth.

  32. Beyonce, Queen of the Illiterates ! February 23, 2014

    Can Beyonce read yet ? Can Beyonce speak English as if it isn’t her 6th language ? Poor thing. Illiterate, ghetto minded b****.

  33. Emeral February 23, 2014

    People always talkin and they can’t back it up huh Garcelle. Practice what you preach honey. Or don’t say it at all if you’re just going to backtrack.

    Lol Beyonce do ya thing tbh. She has got a highly acclaimed album and Tour but if you think she wasn’t prepared for peolple putting their two cents in with this you must be naive.

  34. Camille February 23, 2014

    She meant, if you are beyonce, been s*** for 5yrs +
    Why do you need to be raunchy 24/7 on each video
    each concert, we know u damn s*** beeeaacth
    Are you not convinced you s***? Does your husband not tell
    you that in the bedroom enough? Y do you need the whole world for that approval if u re so called bee
    Unless she is the illuminate puppet, sent to ruin….

  35. Diane February 23, 2014

    Amen. Jennifer Hudson did the same thing. These artists are jealous, pure and simple. They’re jealous of Beyonce’s natural sexiness. It’s not like Beyonce be walking through the airport looking like Coco. It’s her stage show. Otherwise, Beyonce is always appropriate, never trashy. When you see her at a restaurant, is she wearing a bikini? No.

    Jennifer Hudson has lost weight and she looks great, but she does not have s** appeal. S** appeal is not based on weight, but confidence. MoNique is s***.

    These artists are hating just like they hated on Madonna and still does when she does her s*** stage number.

  36. Diane February 23, 2014

    How dare you say Beyonce is raunch 24/7? When? Where? As far as her shows, what about Halo, 1+1, Flawless, and her other ballads. Get over it, Beyonce is a hot, s*** ass chick that’s going to keep giving yall headaches. Damn, why aint yall coming down on Nicki Minaj who shows her bare breast and booty in videos and on instagram?

  37. My Gums Tho(aka Teacher) February 23, 2014

    And Kelly fans should be too lazy to comment…like there pitiful ass fav!…..over What kinda s***!?!?!!!

  38. TheHive February 24, 2014

    Girl focus on gettin more movie roles cause obviously your not winning any awards

  39. AALIYAH STAN FOR LIFE February 24, 2014

    @Stephy how is that when there were plenty of artists that couldn’t really bring out the best in a song that a songwriter provided for them? That wasn’t the case for Aaliyah!

    Now be quiet you Aaliyah hater!

  40. Stephy Tha Lambily February 24, 2014

    @The Aaliyah Stan!

    Im not talking about just song writting!

    Im talking about Timberlands beats & productions. That is what made Aaliyah’s music so feature-est & Missy’s great writting helped as well.

    Aaliyah had a “cute” voice but im sure Janet Jackson could’ve done those songs even more justice.

  41. thor February 24, 2014

    is this a different side … lol same old ratchetness

  42. Bey Fan February 24, 2014

    Beyonce is on the people’s mind….

    Beyonce woman aint did one interview… aint said nothing…only had two live performances… and people are PRESSED.

    I love Fancy… but after posing nude for playboy.. you have no room.

  43. madbrax February 24, 2014

    but she still looks like a stripper with a mic. She used to be good now she’s just acting like a s***. Who cares if she can just stand there and sing (oh wait when she does she lip synchs haha) she’s trash

  44. Really?! February 24, 2014

    I will say whatever the hell I feel necessary about beyonce or any other so call celebrity whenever it is I feel like saying it. Why? Because I’m covered by The First Amendment(Freedom of Speech)signed 1791! You think I give a f*** about her? No. Her fans? Hell no! I have a life that involves finding a purpose. Not following some plastic, narcissist, self centered celebrity who won’t put a dime towards my bills!

  45. fatusankoh February 24, 2014

  46. Comptons Finest February 24, 2014

    The Aaliyah album only had 3 songs produced by Tim and 1 written by Missy, mind you 1 of those songs was done for the one in a million album but didn’t make the final cut. Her first album (which went multi-platinum) missy nor Tim were involved with that album at all, I’m going to need all the haters to know what their talking about before they start spewing out nonsense as if it’s fact.
