Beyonce Slammed Over Rumors Of Writing & Starring In Sarah Baartman Biopic

“She lacks the basic human dignity to be worthy of writing Sarah’s story, let alone playing the part…- Chief Jean Burgess

The quote above came as quite the sting to the Queen Bey after reports surfaced the singer/songwriter would be making her screenwriting debut with a film about the life of Saartjie (Sarah) Baartman, a South African woman who was put on display at British freakshows in the 1800s because of her large buttocks.

The Grammy winner, who is allegedly set to reignite her acting career with a remake of the 1976 Barbara Streisand classic ‘A Star Is Born,’ also recently made headlines for reportedly planning to write and star in a film about Baartman.  Though met with mixed review, the news found the least favor from Chief Jean Burgess of the First Indigenous Peoples of South Africa.

Read her fiery response below when quizzed on her thoughts on the rumored project:

Via News24:

“Ignoring the fact that the KhoiKhoi is alive and that Sarah’s story would have an impact on how we are portrayed, is a mistake of great magnitude,” Burgess said.

Burgess, of the First Indigenous Peoples of South Africa, maintained Beyoncé had no right to tell the story.

 “Why Sarah Baartman? Why not a story about an Indigenous American woman? I can only see arrogance in her attempt to tell a story that is not her’s to tell.”

She said consultation, respect, and acknowledging the existence of the Peoples were fundamental to the story.

Gamtkwa Khoisan Council member Kobus Reichert said they did not have a problem with a movie or Beyoncé acting in it, as long as the community in the Eastern Cape, where Baartman was born, was not sidelined. It had to be done respectfully and with the right “cultural understanding”.

They only became aware of plans to make the movie on Monday when approached for comment

Baartman, an enslaved South African sent to London and placed in cages for locals to gawk at her body, died in 1816.  A mold of her body was made and displayed in museums long after her death with her brain and genitals sent to Paris for examination.  After pressure from late South African president Nelson Mandela, the French government returned Baartman’s remains to South African in 2002.

The Beyonce project on the historic figure’s life has not been officially confirmed by the singer’s camp.  See more on Sarah’s tragic story here:

      • King Mark111 /.\ January 4, 2016

        But you guys were claiming that the world loves her and only “local Americans” hate on her. Ok, lol

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) January 4, 2016

      She is respected as a musician..not really as an actress. (SOMETHING UR FAVE RIHPUNCH LACKS). But i honestly feel if its because it’s Beyonce and overt sexiness, which is stupid because this could be potentially amazing and groundbreaking if properly done. Knowing how ambitious B is and how much she will want to prove the HATERS wrong, this is going to slay. MARK MY WORDS!!!!!

      • Surprise..(DEC 2013) January 4, 2016

        How do u say someone lacks the BASIC HUMAN DIGNITY, when u personally don’t know s*** about them. Dat was just a woman hating and berating another successful black non-south african woman who they feel is exploiting their culture………DOES THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND ring any bell. (FOREST WON AN OSCAR FOR PLAYING A DICTATOR FROM UGANDA). SO THIS BURGESS CHICK NEEDS TO HAVE A SEAT AND BE HAPPY THIS TORY IS BEING TOLD.

    • HailBeysus January 4, 2016

      Receipts of me claiming this or backing anyone up claiming this! Im also going to need receipts of the Hive claiming that as well! Because everyone and they momma know the Seamen Swallowers stay lying!

      • King Mark111 /.\ January 4, 2016

        I’m not doing YOUR research. You pest always having a foot in yo mouths. lol, EVERY TIME! lol ahahahahahahahahaha

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) January 4, 2016

      P.S IT’S JUST THAT BURGESS CHICK DAT’S TRIPPING AND NEEDS TO HAVE A SEAT…LOL. THE OTHER PERSON JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE BAARTMAN’S UPBRINGINGS AND SURROUNDING WERE NOT IGNORED!!!!!

    • HailBeysus January 4, 2016

      Can’t find receipts i see just like you cant find Rihanna’s 50 millin albums and Aaliyah’s 32 million albums KIIII THE LIES AND CLOSETED TEASE SELF DRAG ?????

      • King B January 5, 2016

        LOL. If she sold 32 million, then Beyoncé must have sold 60 million albums, MJ is maybe 1 bilion albums,Madonna and MC = 600 million and nicki minaj will be 25 million albums.

      • HailBeysus January 5, 2016

        @King B right!!! The lies these K** Swallowers tell! Smh poor navy always gotta jump ship, forge receipts and stan for others! Did ya catch me clocking Centipied in that JLo post! It was stanning for Basic Swift so fuxking hard ?????

  3. Annoying January 4, 2016

    Why is Beyoncé so hated ? Like what is it about her that people just feel the need to hate all the time, not even a Stan but this girl could walk down the block with her head down you’d read story’s about how lonely she is like damnnnnn

    • blue January 4, 2016

      isnt that all celebrities though? Like its not even special to her, she isnt even the most hated person to live nor does she get personally attacked when in public. People like chris brown have it worse, deserved or undeserved

      • Danny Bey January 5, 2016

        That was a dumb ass comparison. Chris Brown beat a woman (another young and favored celebrity at that) and has had angry public outburst since. So there’s valid reasons for some people to hate him based off the character he portrays himself to be at times. Beyoncé on the other hand goes to work, hangs out either family, and then goes back to work, all with a smile on her face, and people still reach for reasons to hate. Gurr bye.

      • blue January 5, 2016

        did you read the “deserved or undeserved” part? Also simply meant beyonce’s level of hate like any famous person is based on their level of fame. She doesnt have to fear people throwing her things, cursing out to her face daily, like say someone like chris brown. Basically even when being hated your fave isnt special, they all get hated on.

  4. Neliahah January 4, 2016

    This response is sad. First everyone complains that our stories arent told then when someone wants to show these stories its met with insult, “She lacks the basic human dignity to be worthy of writing Sarah’s story, let alone playing the part” that comment right there tells me they have a personal view on beyoncé rather than the story itself. Its sad how they taint their views on beyoncé lets them not see the whole picture of why a movie like this should be told. Im disgusted at this responce

  5. Chase January 4, 2016

    Not sure how to feel about it… I’m South African as well maybe Beyonce should just leave it, alone.

    • Neliahah January 4, 2016

      Why cuz it beyonce? Would your response be the same if it was Lupita? Im sure it wouldnt, dont let ur OWN views & hate for a person override the story

      • Chase January 4, 2016

        No because she is not African and does really fully understand this story. Her fame will override the meaning of the story and that is not right at all it’s a heartfelt story not a story to be told by someone that is so famous like Beyoncé. It doesn’t make sense for her to do this it just doesn’t end of!

      • blue January 4, 2016

        sorry, but lupita actually has african roots and is viewed by those who know of her as an african. Beyonce is not african by any measure. Also lupita happens to be an excellent actress.

  6. ONYX January 4, 2016

    They BETTER drag her ass!

    WTF does this high school dropout truly know about ‘Sarah Baartmaan’ or the history surrounding ‘Black Freak Shows’?

    NOTHING.

    This is nothing more than a ploy for her to receive cinematic recognition and her desperate attempt to be taken more seriously as an “actress” – something of which she will never be.

    This Woman is so pathetic, it genuinely hurts!

  7. HailBeysus January 4, 2016

    “She lacks the basic human dignity to be worthy of writing Sarah’s story, let alone playing the part…- Chief Jean Burgess

    Death what an imbecile!! He speaking and getting all worked on rumors. She never even claimed to be writing the story herself. Last I new she was hiring actual Movie Writers to write the movie.
    This was a much more respectable response from Gamtkwa Khoisan Council member Kobus Reich
    Anyway the Queen will slay either way!

    • blue January 4, 2016

      getting worked up because of unconfirmed rumours….sounds familiar…

  10. Slay_Hive January 4, 2016

    This is the first time I’ve ever heard of something like this. I thank Beyonce’s name for being attached to this story, because I would have never known about this. I’m interested in learning. I would be here for this project if Beyonce is involved or not. Ignorant People let there personal dislike for Beyonce blind true judgment, but hey, she’s a bad b**** and used to it by now, I’m sure.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) January 4, 2016

      Exactly….. I had never heard of this chick until this story came about. Bey is going to slay the f**** outta this, she is going to want to prove the HATERS so damn wrong!!!!!!

      • Truth January 5, 2016

        Many people have heard of this story and as much as I love Bey she can’t act and this woman’s story deserves the best. Now if Bey wants to be behind the scenes I’m all for it but acting truly is not her forte. It’s truly an amazing story which if told properly with the proper actors could do very well. I could see it from the view of Mandela fighting to get her remains back to south Africa and while he is doing that there are aspects of her story being told throughout the movie kind of like the titanic or Slumdog millionaire.

    • Nicki Minaj thee ONLY QB January 5, 2016

      Because Thiefyonce stans are too dumb to educate themselves.

    • WHEN_TABOO_GOES_PHANTOM January 5, 2016

      lies!!! I’m not African nor American but even i have come across her story on the internet over the years.

      There is even a video on facebook of a young lady reading an amazing spell bounding poetry about how young black women should take pride in Miss Baartman’s story and not parade our asses on display because in the end, the joke is really on the us.

      Know your history people!! I cant wait to see this story on big screen!

  11. Music all the way January 4, 2016

    As a South African,i feel like this was a good move from her, we need our stories told, educate the youth about their history…
    But it is not even comfirmed whether this is true or not so chill people…… And I have to say i am a bit disapointed in that statement made by Chief…
    If this is true,all beyonce and her camp need to do is tell the story with dignity and it should be well made.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) January 4, 2016

      THANKS FOR SAYING DAT!!!!!!!!!!! AND THIS IS COMING FROM A SOUTH AFRICAN, AND YET @MARK666 THE DEVIL’S SIDE PEICE IS STILL HATING!!!LMAO

    • Zoninn January 5, 2016

      You are not a south African but a Beyonce fan, this is not meant to attack beyonce but she’s been known as a musician and a dancer and if she has to play a role as tense and emotional like Sara’s then no one will take it seriously because it will be overshadowed by how Beyonce is known and yet her acting is not that good.

  12. King Mark111 /.\ January 4, 2016

    • TRUTH January 5, 2016

  15. blue January 4, 2016

    as an african i find it ridiculous that we have to depend on americans to tell our stories, which get diluted for american consumption. Let alone the fact that we wont get the opportunity to even help tell story unless you count the Extras in the background to give it a ‘real ethnic feel’. Its ridiculous. Also lets not pretend this story wont play second to BEYONCE if the rumour is true.

    • killian January 8, 2016

      Y was there no interest in making the story prior to Beyonce being on it.I’m an African,I love Beyonce ,she might not be the best actress out there but she definitely got me reading about Sarah Baartman..the silly chief probably mad that Beyonce An AMERICAN saw the potential hit in such a cultural arousing story before h

  16. blue January 4, 2016

    do you want the link to the ROC NATION article that confirmed the 50 mil sold for rihanna, cause it exists.

    • HailBeysus January 5, 2016

      DEATH ????? ROCK NATION!!!??? GURL IF WE BELIEVING RECORD LABELS THAN Y’ALL BETTER START BELIEVING NICKI’S LATEST 3 MILLION ALBUM SOLD! Im going to need receipt from the RIAAA and IFPI claiming this 50 million sold

      • blue January 5, 2016

        labels go by the money they generated and if they say rihanna has generated enough money for them to claim 54 mil who am I to doubt that? Also lets not pretend that the “selftitle sold 5mil” hive takes receipts seriously. Point is her label is claiming 54 mil and that wikip best selling page only needs 75 percent of that to be certified for it to matter.

    • HailBeysus January 5, 2016

      DEATH first you claiming record labels inflated lies now you claiming wiki’s stan altering lies!!!!! Im so done ??????

      • blue January 5, 2016

        didnt actually understand the last part of your comment, but the wikip best selling music artist page requires only 75 percent of the label claimed sales to be actually certified. So she needs atleast 40 mil of those to be certified and she is good. Also i didnt claim wikip as a source i just meant as long as she can back up the certifications then she is still gonna be ahead your fave as one of the best selling music artist of all time

  17. thando January 5, 2016

N im not just saying this because its Bey It could have been Rihanna n ï would still dispute this stupid statement. How could you say such thing to another person that you dont even personally know.
    Hateful much?

    • ?Queen Molly? January 5, 2016

      The same way the General pulic dragged Gaga during SHITTPOP sis?

  20. thando January 5, 2016

    The Chief is spot on! As a South African I find this absolutely disrespectful. The degenerates on here referring to Saartjie as “that chick” are an indication of the calibre intelligence of the people who comment here. You not knowing Saartjie means you’re ignorant, nothing more. Nothing wrong with ignorance, the problem is refusing to learn. Beyonce isn’t a political historian, this is NOT her story to tell. Remember the shambles that were Jennifer Hudson and the woman-beater Terrence Howard when they completely destroyed Winnie Mandela’s life story with that atrocious movie a few years back (a movie which Winnie herself severely criticised). I get incensed because I do not know why our government doesn’t prohibit non-South Africans from telling South African stories. Even more disrespectful is that she wants to do this, allegedly, to satisfy her desperation to win a stupid award. We as South Africans know Saartjie’s story and that’s enough, we don’t care that a troop of ignorant Americans don’t. Our history will never be legitimised by the American film industry. I sincerely hope this doesn’t fall through. There are many American slave or Creole stories she can tell, this unfortunately isn’t one of them, particularly since its about a people’s who most likely don’t even know who/what Beyonce is. Her being denied right to tell this story means people hate her?!? This again is spectacular arrogance from these Americans who think the world revolves to feed their egos. No one hates her, its not her place to tell this story. The Minister of Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa should make sure this does not happen we’re tired of American arrogance defecating on your narratives in exchange for money and ridiculous ego-fullfiling and useless awards. Just yesterday I read the department of Trade & industry was given an ultimatum by America to force us to eat poisoned American meat with their vian-flu and salmonella infested chickens and now they want to steal our stories. This better end as just rumour and nothing more, its not Beyonce’s story to tell, tell a Creole story, if you’re American and want to learn about Saartjie there many documentaries on youtube about her. PS Africa is not a homogeneous country, its an entire CONTINENT that’s almost 3 times the size of North America, with 700 million+ people, 54 countries, thousands of ethnicities, languages and cultures, Lupitta Nyongo is a privileged Kenyan girl who’s rich father was able to afford her an education at Yale for goodness sake, this is hardly anything that happens to an average Kenyan woman . This isn’t her or any American’s story to tell, stop depending on hollywood to give you your history as a black people, read more books!

He says its hate cause he/she is lazy to read something so long. Plus they’re almost always ignorant I’ve learned to bite my tongue and not engage any of them. I just comment on whatever story I feel like commenting on. Don’t reply anything they say. I’m actually dressing this reply. Too many juvenile idiots on here. They post foul mouthed nonsense not worth any engagement. I’m not sure why, but I think it’s an American thing to think that swearing at someone makes you seem smart.

  24. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 5, 2016

    READING is fundamental, these are rumours…. and none of these rumours state that Beyonce will be acting on this project (they all suggest that she will be involved in writing or producing). This is an incredibly interesting project and I would definitely be interested in watching it; and the world could stand to be educated on subjects like this. It takes a high profile celebrity or actor to bring media attention to these projects, and Burgess sounds incredibly arrogant for his response.

    • thando January 5, 2016

      No it only takes you reading more than blog. What’s arrogant is that you think only an American celebrity can educate, which is tragic. Plenty of knowledge exists on Saartjie, read more.

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 5, 2016

        NO, what is truly arrogant is you leaving an essay long comment (longer than this article) and having the nerve to respond to me. Who the hell are you, and what makes you think I give a hot damn about your opinion. I am well read, and I said it would bring ‘media attention’ not education – perhaps you should climb out of your own ass for a second.

    • blue January 5, 2016

      yes reading is fundamental, like the part that says she is rumoured to be planning on writing it and starring in it. Or the fact that the chief wasnt just rumbling on based on rumours but because she was quizzed on the topic, meaning she was under the impression that it was a done deal and not just rumours

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 5, 2016

        You have some nerve to be commenting on rumours… Especially since you nazi bïîtches have been throwing that word around about your own hœ-ish fave. hœhanna has been fvxked by an endless line of industry men and your crew call it ‘rumours’. Billboard has made so many announcements about when flopti was supposed to be released but you bîtches call it ‘rumours’ too ?. GTFO and don’t make me take my belt off !

      • blue January 5, 2016

        i said the chief was asked on the topic and she prob thought it was a done deal already and not just rumours, prob the first she had heard about it too. And i make sure to not attack anyone based off ru ours and operate on a lot of if’s, read my comments.

      • blue January 5, 2016

        im sorry did you just say rihanna has been f***** by an endless line of men? Is that you GOD??? And you know this to be facts? You saw it? She claimed it? You got videos? Audios?

I don’t pay you much attention, but I know that you like to throw shade and disguise it as objective comments. I see through it, and I’m NOT the one ? When you see my name in the comment section, u betta act like you know ??

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 5, 2016

        This isn’t even about HŒhanna, I was merely using her vagîîna as an example of how you hypocritical nazî like to lie about ‘rumours’. But since you are being soooo persistent, I will gather you together. Yea, she has been fvxked by a fair share of men. For example right now she is fvxking travis Scott for tracks (there is a picture of them making out on Daily maiîl as a credible receipt but you nazi won’t accept it). ?

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 5, 2016

        Didn’t she also just pay Matt Barnes a large sum of cash to keep his mouth shut about their past relationship? Notwithstanding her crack cocaine abuse which was clearly caught on camera but the nazi claimed it was weed. Last time I checked white powder wasn’t marijuana, but like I said before… The nazi are hypocritical uneducated bîtches XXX

      • blue January 5, 2016

        let me help you out a little bit. Chris brown, drake, matt kemp, travis scott…only guys you are ever gonna get evidence that they where with rihanna. Guys 4 guys can make i line if they really had to. Rihanna said it was weed, last i checked she was smoking it so she should know. She paid matt barnes? To do what not talk about their relationship *looks on twitter*…literally hear crickets…bring me a certified copy of that cheque and you might have a case

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 5, 2016

        … Anyways @BLUE, as I was saying… There are many men she’s been linked to (she did date Shia labeouf, and he’s even admitted it… As well as Karim Benzema, who she was holding hands with back in 2015). I could mention the other rumoured men (Omarion, Ryan Phillippe, Justin Timberlake, Dudley O’Shaunessy, Leonardo Dicaprio, JR smith, Ashton Kutcher, Rashard Lewis, Josh Hartnett, Lewis Hamilton). The point I’m making is that you nazi bumbîtches like to use the term ‘rumour’ when it suits you, and yet y’all are willing to believe anything that discredits Rihanna’s greatest idol (BEYONCÉ).

        @Hailbeysus scalped that hœs hairline down to the neck. ?? when will this hœ realise she’s irrelevant to me, it’s actually funny that this hœ had so much time on her hands to create a poll and put my name in all of the positive categories.:. And I even won’t acknowledge it.

      • Mariah The Legend January 5, 2016

        LMFAOOOOOOOO. reading is another problem for the illiterate faghive. LOOOOOL. where did I say the faghive called what Chief Jean Burgess was saying as a rumor? Wigs is trying to change subjects and compares rumors with actual sayings made by the cheif. LMFAOOOOOOO at this ass kissing dumb bish. are all you faghive this stupid? LMFAOOOOOOOO

      • blue January 5, 2016

        forgot karim…i loved the idea of them… 2013 was weed again. Listing a bunch of rumoured names dont mean its facts. Dont know why you were trying to make that point when nothing about this article discredits beyonce, also the chief was asked questioned to give her opinion on beyonce writing and starring in the movie, she wasnt just going on about rumours… And not once did i go on off on bey as if this was a confirmed thing, hence the use of IFs

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 5, 2016

        That h** tried so damn hard!!!!!! I said beyonces attachment to the project was a ‘rumour’, i never said the quote from the chief’s mouth was a ‘rumour’. What a TRY HARD!!!

      • HailBeysus January 5, 2016

        Lmfao it does try way to hard! Kiii it took linda almost an hour to come up with some obvious basic reply lmfao! It stans for Rihanna but hides behind Rihanna. It doesn’t even know Mariahs true stats. I clocked it last time and ever since its been desperate to give me clocking ???? RoyalKev clocked it last time when it tried shading Bey for 5 million albums sold. It claimed Mariah sold 6 million in 2 years. RoyalKev came through with receipts showing it reached 6 million in sales in 2013. Stupid fake ass lamb wasn’t quick to reply then KIII!!! It stays eating the 3 BASIC NAVY STOOGES ASS AND DIXKS ?????

      • Mariah The Legend January 5, 2016

        DEEEEEEAAAATH!!!! this annalise faaag is still trying to change subjects and COMPARING RUMORS WITH ACTUAL SAYINGS made by the cheif. are you stupid or something? LOOOL. on top of that you said this is not about rihana and yet you still discussing her. LMFAOOOOOOO

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 5, 2016

        @BLUE Again, I said ‘y’all’.. As in the Nazi, are willing to descredit Beyoncé NOT the blog. ThatGrapeJuice is practically a Beyoncé fan site at this point, which is why you nazi bitter bums are seething. Granted tgj will do anything for clicks, but they usually get enough of those when they drag Hœhannas name through the mud?

      • Mariah The Legend January 5, 2016

        why are you talking about rihanna rumors?

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 5, 2016

        This HΠis soooo thirsty for my attention, and desperately wants me to address it
        ? I think I might put it on a leash and keep its hungry ass waiting. I clearly said ‘beyonces attachment to the project is the rumour’, not the quote’. This fat lonely hœ can keep its polls because no-one acknowledges it. She’s so irrelevant she couldn’t even put herself in any of the nominations because no1 knew
        Who she was ???? Is you HONGRY?

      • HailBeysus January 5, 2016

        LOLOLOLOL IT WAS SO DESPERATE WITH THAT SURVAY!!! SPAMMING THE SHIIIT OUT OF TGJ POST ????

      • blue January 5, 2016

        no we just going on and on in circles. Read every post on ANTI rumoured release date and include the hive in that y’all. Also my initial reply was at you “and none of these
        rumours state that Beyonce will
        be acting on this project (they all
        suggest that she will be involved
        in writing or producing).” and i told you “yes reading is fundamental,
        like the part that says she is
        rumoured to be planning on
        writing it and starring in it.” because “made headlines
        for reportedly planning to write
        and star in a film about Baartman.”

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 5, 2016

        COME CORRECT! When I get an official statement from Beyonces camp stating her involvement, then me and you can debate about this. Go back to leaving your little positive mother-Theresa-wrinkly ass on-the-fence comments, because being a ‘bîtch’ doesn’t look good on you.

      • Mariah The Legend January 5, 2016

        LOOOOOOOOL. are you mad that no one voted for you annalise? are you mad at your irreverence on this blog that you will say anything? are you mad that the hive themselves dont even claim you? LMFAOOOOOOOO. why you mad irrelevant bish? kiiiiiii

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig January 5, 2016

        LOOOOOL I saw the that post and I was SCREAMING at that lamb getting dragged until
        It became a lamb chop? I love Mariah, and there’s never been issues between her fanbase and the hive.. So that creature is not a real Stan.

  30. Music all the way January 5, 2016

    @ Thando,I still stand by my word, we need our stories told, whether it be by written books, television or radio. And thats why I said they should just do JUSTICE to that movie…. And yes,i agree with you Thando,they ruined that Winnie Mandela movie, I still dont understand why they had to use Jenifer hudson when we have plenty of africans who could have done a much better job. But i was glad that our stories we being told for the world to know. Why should we depend on reading books to know more about our culture when television can educate us as well?? And yes ha re batle khoho tseno tsa bona tse bolileng tse tsoang America,they should just keep that trash to themselves

  31. .:: Centurion ::. January 5, 2016

    Not everyone is pro-Beyonce like the no-life-having-āss-høe-hive always claim she is. Beyonce might be like by most millenniums, but most adults think she’s trash for ruining the minds of young girls. This nasty ass høe faux feminist trash is no role model.

    Most South Africans are religious anyway. They wouldn’t allow this disgusting illiterate 15/16 year old Performing Arts dropout serial thief of a demon to destroy their stories. Beyonce can’t even act so have several seats.

  34. Career Ender January 5, 2016

    Sigh

  35. Dee Western January 5, 2016

    I agree with Thando word for word. First of all how can you write and star in a picture without getting the blessings of South Africa? You desire to win an Academy Award, should not be at the expense of humiliating a country and/or their descendants. In reality, you will not write the story, you will hire someone else to write it for you. I have seen all of your past film performances. I don’t consider her an actress/actor. Why would you want to make a movie regarding a black women’s anatomy and her tragic life? Oh wait, I know why, you need that exposure, you want someone to speak your name daily. If this story was to be told, I believe it should be told by South Africa.
    I believe Beyonce should stick with something she can personally relate to, like Jay Z’s life in Brooklyn selling drugs. If you do move forward with this story, it may be the demise of your career. I would suggest you perfect your craft, like attending school or look into some acting workshops. Focus on perfecting your own craft. Learn how to conduct a one on one interview. We need to realize one thing, if one is wealthy enough, believe me, people will always tell you what they think you may want to hear.

  36. iyrene January 5, 2016

    Ugh, Beyonce is so arrogant, why not portray a movie about a people or a cause she is passion about? she hasn’t even once toured here, or performed here after our many petitions. So she must stay out and not portray our history.

  37. Duffster Lovato January 5, 2016

    My first comment didn’t go through, i wished Chief Jean Burgess had a social media platform i could vent what i feel right now to him/her/shim, you don’t go around ranting at other people calling them something they’re not just cause you don’t like them. Its bad if Beyoncé wants to share such a heartfelt story in her way and yet you want the world to know more about South African exploits, Burgess is really delusional, of course i’d say the same if it was Rihanna that wanted a part in the movie. If Beyoncé wasn’t attached to it i probably will never have heard of Sarah Baartman. Chief Jean Burgess should learn to act educated.

    • blue January 5, 2016

      you talking about an african chief…african leaders dont hold their tongues about anything…africans a straight up and deliver their thoughts as harsh as passionately as they feel about the topic.

    Beyonce cant read write or act. why is she always trying? stick to your job of ass shaking and acting like you write your own songs.

        Second, the pure ignorance to think the fact that im from a country in africa means i dont have access to a farmers market or food or that my family is poor.

    _____
    HOLLERING!!!!, this H0Ë is ridiculously idiotic she just contradicted herself within minutes….. I’ve said it several times, I was comparing the rumour of Beyonce being attached to the movie to the rumours of Rihanna’s body count (I.e. the title of this post is ‘Beyonce slammed over rumors of writing and starring in Sarah Baartman biopic). The only thing I said about this chief person is that I thought he was ‘arrogant’. This weak flop-ass-wideset-vaggina-having H** has been desperately trying to communicate with me since December, and will continue to get dust in return.

She just said I called the chief’s quote a ‘rumour’ which I have proved SEVERAL times already was NOT what I wrote, and she still can’t keep her trap shut? Now she has to cling to the slavi’s low T-cell nutsacks for help, even though they refer to her fave as ‘moomoo’. Go find yourself a Coffin b*tch

This b*tch is the one that couldn’t mind her own business and jumped into a seperate argument, and still got her ass handed to her.

She doesn’t do any interview & from what I have NOT SEEN for MY OWN EYES or go out to the community & give back. She lacks education….If I’m not mistaken home skillet didn’t graduate from high school?? FOH!!

  58. CHERRY February 16, 2016

    It amazes me that you people say such idiotic comments about this subject. All you read was,that the Chief commented that he did not think she was right and arrogant for writing and performing in the role. The fact is, he has never met her before,so who is he. What really makes me angry is not you all is just bashing Beyonce,but you dont know the Story of Saartjie Baartman, the women of whom she wants to betray.
