Hot Shots: Beyonce Takes New York City / Raises $82,000 For Victims Of Flint Water Poisoning

Published: Tuesday 14th Jun 2016 by David

Stepping out in striped style today was Beyonce.

Hard at work on her latest live show, ‘The Formation World Tour’, the entertainer stopped traffic as she made her way around New York City as her new LP ‘Lemonade‘ takes on Drake‘s melodic ‘VIEWS’ on the Billboard 200.

More below…


There’s more.

After learning that the good people of Flint, Michigan had been consuming poisoned water the entertainer, who hails from Texas, raised $82,000 to support them as they seek to rise above the crisis.

Billboard reports:

On Monday (June 13), the singer’s entertainment and management company, Parkwood Entertainment, and director of philanthropy and corporate relations, Ivy McGregor, presented a $82,234 check to the United Way of Genesee County at a Detroit high school in partnership with Bey’s philanthropic platform, BeyGOOD, according to a release sent from Beyonce’s team. The funds are the result of fans who opted to donate to the city impacted by the ongoing water crisis.

    What does my mother have on? ???????

      Beyonce always looks awful when she tries to look like a fashionista. She tries to dress like Rihanna and ends up looking like a homeless woman. Beyonce is extremely talented but she is no fashion icon. She should stick to wearing designers off the rack and stop trying to put together styles. She doesn’t know what she is doing. That CFDA award should have gone to a real fashion pioneer: The ORIGINAL Queen Bee LIL’ KIM. Not everyone can pull off daring looks. Beyonce is too bland.

  2. ? June 14, 2016

    She’s giving me Joseph and the technicolor coat tease

  3. Slay_Hive June 14, 2016

    So beautiful, giving and ICONIC!!!

  4. truthtea June 14, 2016

    She needs to take her philanthropy to Florida and help bring more awareness to the gay community there after the attack at Pulse! Most of her fans are gays and she needs to start supporting them more through philanthropy! Not just giving shout outs via social media.

    • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 14, 2016

      At least Beyonce’s actually making an effort to give back! Why is it a problem that she is using her art and platform to show support and create more awareness for the Black Lives Matter Movement?

    • King Mark111 /.\ June 14, 2016

      You gays have Gags clinging to that now, so go away.

    • Tori June 14, 2016

      Beyonce support the LGBT enough, hell she had 2 male dancers for “Single Ladies” once. Gays should live in THEIR truth. What does it matter if your favorite celebrity supports you if she doesn’t know you? What ever happened to ppl living their own damn lives, no caring about other ppls options or “support”? Why do all gays have the D. Smith mentality now days?

  5. Sue June 14, 2016

    This whole outfit is a no from me. There’s just way too much happening I mean you got the skirt,the coat, the shoes, the bag and the hair and also those stupid glasses.

    • #JACKIE June 14, 2016

      The problem is Bey doesn’t wear the clothes, the clothes wear her. Solange would have slayed this. Fashion icon my ass.

    Queen. She took time out of her day to do something good. BeyGood.

    • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 14, 2016

      Uggh! You’re so annoying. Molly shut your ravioli built ass up

  8. Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 14, 2016

    Nice to see her trying to make a difference in the Black community. A few years ago, there wasn’t this surge of black empowerment nor national awareness of police brutality like there is today

    • SMH June 14, 2016

      Then you’ve been asleep for years. There’s ALWAYS been black empowerment and nationwide awareness for YEARS before this chick was even born. Pull your head out of her asss for a second and do some research.

      • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 15, 2016

        Shut up you stupid b****. There wasn’t a large resurgence until post-Treyvon Martin, post-Mike Brown, and post-Black Lives Matter Movement. Now get tf out of my reply section

  9. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? June 14, 2016

    Since Bey is in a giving mood maybe she can help CICI find a label home, I mean she has enough clout in the industry to do so.

    • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 14, 2016

      Am I trippin? Or did David just delete the Maid’s comment? lol

      • Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? June 14, 2016

        ????? he did!!

      • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 14, 2016

        Hmmm, I wonder why…

      • Big Tokyo June 14, 2016

        I follow him on Instagram.?? what did Jackie say?

      • Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? June 14, 2016

        He’s probably tired of his s*** like the rest of us.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) June 14, 2016

      She tried, but even GOD can not get CICI a label home..

    Not b****** being pressed over Ciara as usual. Maybe Ci can show this tacky country bumpkin how to slay an outfit. #SUPERMODEL #StayMadFags

    • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 14, 2016

      He’s on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta now right?

      • #JACKIE June 14, 2016

        I don’t know who “he” is just like your mom doesn’t know who your daddy is, trick.

      • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 14, 2016

        My bad! Ciara and D Smith just look so much alike

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) June 14, 2016

      And maybe that country bumpkin can teach her how to sing, since we all know CI-MAN sounds like a bulldozer when attempting to carry a tune…EVERYBODY WINS!!!

      • #JACKIE June 14, 2016

        Shut up B****

    • wrosy3 June 14, 2016

      Word speaks truth Shame the tacky devils this woman cannot dress to save her life

  11. Mark jones June 14, 2016

    So it didn’t even give the money herself she got it from her fans and didn’t even match it……. Even though she made millions off the tour ….. And why is she just learning about an issue that’s been going on for a year now…… Smh……

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) June 14, 2016

      Shut the f*** up…this donation was by her fans for flint, how do you know she has not personally donated to flint along with her husband. Not every one is TAYLOR SWIFT that announces every donation she makes to seem charitable. THIS WOMAN JUST CANNOT WIN WITH HER HATERS…I GUESS THAT’S WHY SHE’S ON TOP AND THE REST ARE BENEATH HER.

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 June 14, 2016

      First of all Beyonce knew about this matter before her tour even started. Shorly after her tour was announced it was none that she would donate profits to the cause. Beyonce and Jay-z more than likely already gave money in private much like they did when they privately funded the “Black Lives Matter Movement. Now how much money have you given to charity? How have you used your platform to raise thousands of dollars? Yeah I thought so!

      • Mark jones June 15, 2016

        Actually , I have raised money for plenty of causes. I just got done raising money for juvenile diabetes research in May. How about yourself are you out doing something and if it’s private how come you know about it. You people need to stop worshiping these celebrities and step into reality. According to this article she just found out about it and that’s what I based my statement off of. Stop speaking up for someone who pretends to be socially aware and start doing you’re part.

  12. BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 June 14, 2016

    Positive: She was generous to give a profit of her Formation Tour profits to Detriot to help them with their water crisis.

    Negative: Beyonce your outfit, in the words of Desinys Child “No No No No No No”.

    Why does Ciara still have fans?

    • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 14, 2016

    Ashanti’s run lasted longer then CICI. I just wanna leave that there for everyone to think about.

    • #JACKIE June 14, 2016

      They shoulda left Lil Seizy on that plane.

  16. Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 14, 2016

    I noticed that you deleted Molly’s nasty comment. Could you do us all of favor, and start deleting Jackie’s too? Seeing as how they are the same person.

    • Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? June 14, 2016

    With all her money she always look sloppy and all these color looks a mess on her nene leakes Wendy porsha the list goes on dresses better than Beyonce ridiculous with all her money she cannot hire a better stylist with all her stealing from other people concepts in music she need to steal some damn style there goes your fashion icon hives she represent well ghetto welfare couture

  19. Meiz June 14, 2016

    Tacky old woman. She can’t even dress to save her life.ew

  20. LB June 14, 2016

    So not only does she dupe her fans by giving them a reused, recycled tour, she is also asking them to give money to her “philanthropic” activities and doesn’t even match it.
    With all that bragging the hive does about her net worth, an $82K check is too paltry and embarrassing an amount for the “philanthropist”

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 June 14, 2016

      There is nothing reduced or recycled about the Formation your. However them empty seats are abundant for Rihannas tour though and that’s why you pressed!

      • SMH June 14, 2016

        Lies. She’s been doing the same exact show since 2003.

  21. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 14, 2016

    SOOooooo…Where was Rihanna’s post when announced last month that she’s giving 50 college students scholarships upwards of 50K each? Where was a Rihanna post when she installed the first of a kind cancer screening machine for the caribbean that costs $2 mil? Oh and by the way, Beyonce’s outfit looks abysmal as it looks like a 24 pack of crayola crayons had an orrgyy and nutted all over her… Lookin like a poor crack head’s rockstar with them wannabe Jim Morrison sunglasses on.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 14, 2016

        Girl how you doin! How have you been? since you’re dropping videos and stuff, would you like to address a couple? Can this chick do anything on her own? She’s the new black Britney Spears, just a dancing, controlled robot.

      • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 14, 2016

        If anything, Rihanna’s the new Britney Spears. All smoke and mirrors, NO vocal talent. The only difference is Britney worked heavily with producers like Polow da Don and Danja when she was recording.Rihanna on the other hand, is just a full blown puppet.

      • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 14, 2016

        I’m tell you that comparing Beyoncé to Britney Spears. Is like comparing Beyonce to Rihanna…I don’t get it. One has talent and one doesn’t…You do the math! :p

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 14, 2016

        Girl Beyonce is the Bernie Sanders of music. She keeps trying but just needs to give it up. She’s not hot no mo. #TheNewJanetJacksonHasEmerged #VegasIsWaiting #NoHitsOnTheRadio #SheCantEvenGetHerOwnRecordPlayed #PoorChloeAndHalle

      • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 14, 2016

        At least Beyonce didn’t have to cheat for sales. That’s the Navy’s problem. You all think Rihanna is bigger than she actually is. She can’t sing, dance, produce or write songs. She isn’t able to transfix a live audience with her sole voice and talent. Her albums and tours don’t sell well. She is a pop product that is very marketable. Her music hasn’t changed the game. That’s the point.

      • Keri Qween June 14, 2016

        Tyler the t***** delusional as usual

        Since when was your thieving fave a master producer or songwriter??? Kiii. Rihanna has proven to you naysayers before that she can sing so that’s your opinion. And i don’t get where y’all say she can’t sell albums. Are you referring to ANTI which you know would have performed better minus the messy roll out and giving away a million copies of her album. TTT and Unapologetic both sold 3.4 -3.5 million worldwide. Self titled sold 3.9 million and y’all claimed it changed the game and all the hoopla surrounding it she shouldve did 10 million. And Lemonade will sell less than that soooo

      • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 14, 2016

        I never said that Beyonce was a song writer ya dumb f***! She is HOWEVER, the highest grossing performer of our time. Meanwhile, the only thing Frih is good at is drinking alcohol, smoking Newports, and rolling up black n milds. BTW every mainstream album has outsold cAnti. That’s why you’re so mad. You stan for not one, but TWO bonafide FLOPS ya stupid t***** ass b**** hahaha

      • BEY>RIH June 14, 2016

        @iSpeaklies I’m having a hard time understaing how Beyoncè isn’t hot anymore when Lemonade has outsold cAnti in 2 months and her tour has grossed 100 million in 18 dates. ? What does rihanna have for her this era besides “timeless single Work” and streaming? Oh i forgot she is breaking records such as becoming the lowest selling #1 album ever…I used to find your comments useful and unbiased but I have come to realize you’re one of those delusional nazís that think rihanna is bigger than Beyoncè. ???

      • BEY>RIH June 14, 2016

        I also think vegas would be more suting for rihanna. Beyoncè is currently on a sold out Stadium world tour and has grossed 100 million with 18/49 dates so far and she has sold nearly 800k tickets. Rihanna is on a (half-sold?) arena tour and has grossed 18 million with 14 dates. She has sold around 250k tickets. Your telling me the biggest female touring artist of this generation who is selling out 60k+ seat stadiums “should be in vegas” while an artist who can’t fill up 13k seat arenas is “slaying”.?!?
        All those radio hits but can’t tour arenas….??✌?️

  22. LB June 14, 2016

    And this outfit is a hot mess OMG, now I know for sure she paid for that “fashion icon” award. Solange would have slayed this

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) June 14, 2016


      • LB June 14, 2016

        Mad you can’t afford a ticket? It’s OK

      • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) June 14, 2016

        The real question is, can you afford it? Word on the street is, the Anti Tour has plenty of empty seats left.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) June 14, 2016

      No, her fans can’t and that’s why it not sold out..LMAO

    This site needs to stop saying that Lemonade is battling Drake on the charts. It’s not a battle. Drake has been piissing on that mess from day 1 and he hasn’t stopped yet.

    • Mr.StLaurent June 15, 2016

      Lemonade’ is now the best selling album released in 2016 worldwide surpassing Drake’s ‘Views’!

    • therealist June 16, 2016

      where have you been. beys album is outselling drake album. Now drake had more sales when he first dropped the album and he also had a 80% decrease in album sales. Bey’s been killing him in pure sales and she is killing him all around right now. Do your research before you speak non facts!!!

  27. Fatusankoh June 14, 2016

    Yes queen bey you are always giving back thanks Sam for posting

  28. © Centurion ::. June 14, 2016

    Wow! She looks terrible.

  29. © Centurion ::. June 14, 2016

    I have never heard anybody call Beyonce their favourate celebrity fashionista or style icon or whatever, not even on TV. I’m pretty sure that the fashion world was scratching their heads at her winning a CFDA fashion award. That outfit is an abomination. “Fashion icon” – this barren whack høe and her whack sense of fashion – is called. SMH

    • therealist June 16, 2016

      Bey dont give a f*** about what you think and she wears what the hell she wants. Best believe when its time to slay at the met gala and any other event, she always come thru. smh. You probably look like a damn shaved bird, but trying to talk s*** about someone.

  30. No favs, just here for the music June 14, 2016

    Ummmm I think your next stop should be here in Orlando Bey. But then again I just want her to come to my city lol! Forreal though Orlando would greatly appreciate her support/presence as well.

  31. Danny Bey June 15, 2016

    An article about positivity and helping those in need and you h*** can only talk about her clothes.Typical.

  32. Reddish tran ivy blokz Need UK timelyyouyi June 15, 2016

    Good for Mrs.carter

  33. Team beauty June 15, 2016

    Didnt she just win a fashion icon award that outfit is awful to be honest I think other stars were more deserving for that award e.g. Jlos iconic Versace dress,gwen Stefani she got style, Rihanna she looks good in anything not being negative just giving my opinion but when I think beyonce I don’t think fashionista anyways good for her for helping the less fortunate

  34. Chile Please!!! June 15, 2016

    She always looks a hot mess!! All the coins she have & you would think fleayonce would be snatched for the garments!! Dress looking like a rainbow candy cane! How about she raise money for the victims of the Pulse shooting….sh*t majority of her fans that support her are gay anyway.
