Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ Boosts Louisiana’s Employment Rate

Published: Wednesday 20th Apr 2016 by David

It took 90 days for Beyonce to complete her latest visual project ‘Lemonade.’

Sound impressive? Well wait until you find out how her decision to shoot the project in her family’s “hometown” of Louisiana has changed the lives of its inhabitants, below…

The star can trace her lineage to the state to the year 1765, the year her ancestor Joseph Broussard settled following his departure from present-day Haiti.

Keen to honour her familial ties to the land, the star set ‘Lemonade‘s story in the state much to the delight of its inhabitants.

For, 300 of them were employed to help her complete the visual, seeing them enjoy a piece of the $1.35 million she used to complete it.


Catch ‘Lemonade’ when it premieres on HBO on April 23rd.

    • GIRLBYE April 20, 2016

      Have a feeling this album is gonna be released for free. A lot don’t realize but this is bey last album with Columbia, I think she tryna go out with a bang. !

      • HailBeysus April 20, 2016

        Idk think it will be free. Columbia intends to make money not lose it lol! Either way im excited to see what she does after her contract is up! I wonder if she’ll go independent or renew.

      • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

        Umm, that s*** sounds stupid.

    • Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? April 20, 2016

      B**** shut yo ass up. Has our favorite Transgender found her new label?

      • #JACKIE April 20, 2016

        Is Lil Weazel still Birdmans b**** boy bottom? Does The Carter V have a release date? Is Drake still slaying him? Has your H** turned into full blown A*** yet? B**** back up off me.

      • Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? April 20, 2016

        Your typical boring drags ???. Has CICI finally got her d*** cut off, does CICI have a platinum album this decade. Is CICI still being slayed by Tinashe?

    • LmfaoHoe April 20, 2016

      GROUNDBREAKING indeed hun. Everyone getting into Formation by working (literally) that’s great news. Smh how can you still be so negative about this tho ???

  4. Rihboy April 20, 2016

    ????oh brother. Kii! She need need need needed them that’s why they got paid. If anything substantial. Without the army of people behind her she would be back to square one stealing from Brodway shows and the street corners of Houston she never saw.

    • Bey Got tha Body April 20, 2016

      Don’t be a hater dear. It doesn’t suit you. #JobsProvider #WelfareSlayer #Beyployment

    • rosy3 April 20, 2016

      Is this anything of importance really Sam you start grasping at,straws now anything to get people interested the thirst is so real first it was red lobster I’m glad she helping her welfare fans it’s about time

    • GIRLBYE April 21, 2016

      Wait are you a Rihanna Stan talking about having a team ? Without Rihanna having a team who picked her singles and promoted her right she wouldn’t be anywhere with those goat vocals and fashion y’all look up to.

  5. HailBeysus April 20, 2016

    Yas the Legendary Queen Beyoncé!!! Im thirsty af for that album!!! Super stoked for Lemonade!!!! IM STILL SCREAMING AT THAT NFL TEA!!! FUXKING QUEENNO DOUBT!!

  6. HailBeysus April 20, 2016

    Why are the Z-Listers here nce again??? They should be more focused on when Mrs. Man is gunna get a record deal and why she keeps lying saying the album is in “progress” lol#
    The Navy should be focusing on why Thotanna has showed her t.i.t.s every video this era only to be slayed by little Ariana KIB Video (23m views) Dangerous Woman video (44m views). Has AntiSuccess outsold Artpop yet??? Has Thotanna stopped lying about her “soldout” shows kiii!!!

    • #JACKIE April 20, 2016

      You should be focused on FLOPmation cracking the hot 100 and the lack of anticipation for LemonLATE sis.

      • Bey Got tha Body April 20, 2016

        Ciara has a new man for every album so just be happy her staged relationship with Russell is working out boo boo.

      • HailBeysus April 20, 2016

        Naw i think not! It was a free single that was never released as an official single. Ill wait for the real singles hit the charts! Meanwhile has Mrs Man found a label???

  7. truthtea April 20, 2016

    Really? And I’m pretty sure they won’t report their earnings to their local welfare and unemployment office!

    • Bey Got tha Body April 20, 2016

      And who told you that they don’t have other jobs? Interesting you assumed that they wouldn’t be professionals working on a Beyonce video. Interesting that you linked welfare to a predominantly black state and not to the black sound engineers, catering companies, chauffeurs, hotel staff etc who did their part to make money for their community. Interesting.

      • B&B April 20, 2016

        @Bey Got that Body you better say that!!!!!

      • GIRLBYE April 21, 2016

        Clock ha !!!!!

  8. Cinnamon Girl April 20, 2016

    All videos/ films give people jobs. What’s the big deal?Lol. TGJ, you guys need to stop acting like Beyawnce is doing something special. It’s getting lame

    • Bey Got tha Body April 20, 2016

      Are you forgetting what Katrina did to New Orleans? Or the difference that money could make to a household who really needed it? Please look beyond the hate and think about how cool it would be if your little brother or sister came home with money in their pocket and pride in their hearts because they were hired to work on a Beyonce video.

      • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

        She’s not aware of what Katrina did to NO. She’s not even a U.S. citizen lol

      • Cinnamon Girl April 20, 2016

        Please stop. I live in L.A., the movie capital of the nation, and film companies have hired homeless people off the street to work as extras. You folks really need to quit exalting every little thing Beyawnce does

    • #JACKIE April 20, 2016

      Sis this post is sooooo pointless.

      • Bey Got tha Body April 20, 2016

        You know who Future is very well. He’s currently more relevant than your fave #56k

      • #JACKIE April 20, 2016

        How many platinum albums, Grammys and #1 hits does he have again? Not Panda slaying his entire existence….

      • Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? April 20, 2016

  12. Chile Please!!! April 20, 2016

    Yeah Theifyonce may be a good performer, but a horrible actress. Hope what ever this crap is she’s pulling with shitmonade doesn’t require acting because she sucks at it. So over her….well I’ve actually been over her…just like throwing shade!

    • Bey Got tha Body April 20, 2016

      Oooh here comes a bitter Betty!!!! What’s wrong? Your daddy borrowed your leggings without asking again?

  16. IAlwaysSLAY April 20, 2016

    I really hope this isn’t Beyonce last album because if so I will cry.

  17. Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

    Awesome! Beyonce has been making big moves for the past few years. From attending the march for Trayvon Martin, bailing protesters out of jail, aiding the victims of Katrina, bringing light to this issue- risking losing white fans and being black mailed- during the half time superbowl which is watched by a billion people, and using proceeds from her tour to help aid poisoned victims in Flint because of the water crisis
    Keep the good work up Queen Bey ??

    • Bey Got tha Body April 20, 2016

      She didn’t risk losing white fans. She risked losing racists.

    • SMH April 20, 2016

      Stop lying. I have family in Flint and she is not one of the donors helping with aid. So just stop with the bs azzkissing.

      P.S., the term is blacklisted not blackmailed lmao.

      • HailBeysus April 20, 2016

        @SMH gurrrl stop the liess!! You ain’t got no family in flint!! Lmfao!!!

        “True to her life’s work of always giving back, fans will be given the opportunity to participate in Beyoncé’s #BeyGOOD initiative supporting local United Way programs and the continued work surrounding the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. United Way of Genesee County has been at the forefront of distributing thousands of filtration pitchers, faucet mount filters, replacement cartridges and truckloads of water to underserved populations to address immediate needs in Flint Michigan. They are also partnering with the Community Foundation of Greater Flint to create a fund that will address long-term developmental, education, nutrition and health needs of the children affected by the Flint Water Crisis. Follow @beygood on Twitter for more information.”

      • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

        ALL of the proceeds from are tour are going to Flint.
        You deserved to be slapped in the face with a bag of nickels because all of this lying is starting to get ridiculous

  19. SMH April 20, 2016

    Completely pointless and transparent post. EVERY video or movie that films in a city employs local residents. That’s nothing new or special, just more PR bull from camp beyonce blowing smoke up everyone’s a**. She has the best smoke & mirrors bullsh*t machine in the business since Madonna

    • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

      Every city wasn’t DESTROYED by Hurricane like Katrina. You sound ignorant.

      • #JACKIE April 20, 2016

        That was almost 11 years ago. Most of the city has been rebuilt. I doubt she went into the hood and hired the people who are still affected by it till this day so shut up b****.

      • SMH April 20, 2016

        Katrina was over 10 years ago. And that has nothing to do with the fact that all cities employ local residents for film projects. Clearly you are ignorant.

      • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

        Don’t it ! Because you clearly don’t know WTF you’re talking about. The east side is stilling shamble. The flooded neighborhood in the video, the new orleans references and styles. My family is from the NOLA and she represented for them!! Y’all looking at the wrong things besides the underlying message of the song.

      • Cinnamon Girl April 20, 2016

        She’s already flopping, dear. Hymn For The Weekend, Formation, Ivy Park are all flops

      • LDN Chick April 20, 2016

        Ivy park is not a flop. Its doing very well. Neither is formation a flop. It served it’s purpose. Hymn for the weekend is not her single but now it’s all her fault? You people are such loonies.

  21. LOL April 20, 2016


  22. Bruno Martian April 20, 2016

    I think Ciara boosted sales of self esteem self help books when people saw how a girl with low self esteem allows herself to be used by a deadbeat dad with no emotional connection to his children or the fools he knocks up. Rihanna boosted sales of earplugs for obvious reasons and Drake boosted sales of water based concealer for his Hotline Bling video shoot. #StimulusSlay

    • HailBeysus April 20, 2016

      Not Ci-Error boosting Self Esteem Self Help Books KIII!!!!

  23. Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

    Me: We see what Beyonce has done, but what sales have Ciara boosted?

      Has AntiSoldOut Tour actually sold out yet? Or is Thotanna still lying about that! ???

      • © Centurion (YEW KNOW I got the SAAAWWWWSE… Yew know I’m SAAAAAUUUU$$$$$$YYYYYY) April 20, 2016

        Yep! Multiple venues are sold out. Has Ivy Flop sold out like TGJ reported?

      • © Centurion (YEW KNOW I got the SAAAWWWWSE… Yew know I’m SAAAAAUUUU$$$$$$YYYYYY) April 20, 2016

        SCREAMING @ this moronic c****. They were using a TWEET from a Beyonce fanpage. LMFAOOO!!! Cosmopolitan – a fashion magazine – already clocked the no-life-having-āss-høe-hive and twitter was hollering. ?????
        My mouth dropped when I showed up for the launch of Ivy Park at Topshop’s Soho location in New York. There was not a single person in line

        No camping out overnight, no eager shoppers. It was so quiet I could hear the birds chirping. All I saw were people walking their dogs and grabbing their morning coffees. Where was the Beyhive? I couldn’t have been the only one who cared. Because Beyoncé.

      • © Centurion (YEW KNOW I got the SAAAWWWWSE… Yew know I’m SAAAAAUUUU$$$$$$YYYYYY) April 20, 2016

        Where does the Hollywood Reporter state that Ivy Flop sold out? Typical idiotic no-life-having-āss-høe-hive fāggot. Your problem is that you don’t read articles. You just saw the link and thought otherwise. SCREAMING @ this idiotic lazy ass mentally exigous brain dead bìtch. LEARN TO READ! That was literally a self-drag! ?????
        As for now, there’s still plenty of inventory left on the retailer’s websitethough finding your specific size in every piece you want (read: all of them) may prove a bit difficult.

        If this morning’s low turnout at Topshop’s L.A. store at The Grove is any indication, however, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to get your hands on a sports bra or perhaps a pair of branded slides at the brick-and-mortar locations.

    • Cinnamon Girl April 20, 2016

      They claimed Topshop website crashed because of Ivy Park. However Ivy Park is still not sold out! Lol!

  25. Cinnamon Girl April 20, 2016

    Beyawnce is giving away free tickets to her Formation tour! SCREAMING!!!

    • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

      Lol Formation is projected to gross over 250 million.
      When will PeePee??


  26. Cinnamon Girl April 20, 2016

    Fleahives, I thought Formation was sold out?!!

    • Jackson 5 Nostrils (Tyler) April 20, 2016

      ^^This idiot is seriously trying to shade one of the highest grossing female tours in music history^^ ????

  27. Reality April 20, 2016

    Beyoncé you make it hard for women like me who try to have some intergrity
    You make it hard for girls like myself who respect themselves And have dignity
    You nasty girl, you nasty, you trashy You classless girl, you sleazy, you freaky

    Booty all out, tongue out her mouth, cleavage from here to Mexico
    She walks wit a twist, one hand on her hip, when she gets wit’cha she lets it go
    Nasty put some clothes on, you look to’ down
    Nasty don’t know why you, will not sit down
    Heels on her feet, swear she’s in heat, flirtin’ wit every man she sees
    Her pants hangin’ low, she never says no, everyone knows she’s easy
    Nasty put some clothes on, you lookin’ stank
    Nasty what’s your problem, you should be ashamed

    • LDN Chick April 20, 2016

      Oh shut the hell up as female myself this comment is pathetic. Get a life and your own brain and stop living through celebrity culture. It’s not their job to make you ‘feel dignified’ that’s your job.

    Cinnamon Girl says:

    Remember when they laughed at Rihanna for selling tour tickets for $10 and giving them away for free? Well Beat is doing the same ,thing! She’s partnering up with a charity to give away free tickets to her tour! This proves that her Formation tour is not sold out!
    If that tea is true who does it even compare to Rihanna giving away tickets?? Beyonce is doing it for charity! Where des that say Tour is Unsold! She is still adding dates amd has already grossed over $100 million from pre-sale tickets alone!!! ????!!! The reach from these peasants is unfathomable!!!! If a tour is not selling well! I HIGHLY DOUBT SOMEONE WOULD STILL BE ADDING OR BOOKING MORE STADIUM DATES!!! LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN FOR Y’ALL HARD HEADED HOEEEES!

  29. Cinnamon Girl April 20, 2016
