    Even after super bowl hype? Beyoncè did way better? Even Anti tour which grossed 107 million did better and y’all called Anti tour a flop lol!

    • ??? December 14, 2017

      lmao reading is fundamental bug. this is just the american leg, she hasnt even started the international leg yet stupid. shes gonna outgross both rihanna and the bug so keep seething h0 lmao!!

      • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler December 14, 2017

        Outgross the Formation tour? NOanne wishes.

    • JanStan December 14, 2017

      Lol@ Anti grossing over 100 million.

      • Datredd23 December 14, 2017

        Confirmed by Forbes sweetie 107 million gross when all dates were added

      • Datredd23 December 14, 2017

        Your really pressed over her tour numbers Worldwide gross is 107 million it’s been confirmed by many sources hun and she didn’t put her tickets on sale right after the super bowl ! You can’t deny that the Super Bowl hype helped her and others aswell lol

      • JanStan December 14, 2017

        If there are so many sources post them. Not the Forbes ‘Estimate’ but OFFICIAL tour receipts. Should be easy since there’s soooooo many supposedly.

        And if Rihanna was a better performer she could book the SuperBowl but like I said, performing is NOT her thing, so she can’t. She makes bops and slays the fashion business but touring… she couldn’t even outgross Artrave. K bye!

      • Marcel December 14, 2017

        Lol the Navy can’t read
        They assume that the 1.7 million or whatever amount was mentioned she pulled in was tour gross but they were referring to the amount of money she makes per each stop meaning thats the Amoung the promoters pay her for each show.if you compare box scores for other shows with a bigger venue she grossed over 2 million somwhats the truth? The navy needs to admit that the empty tour was a flop and look forward to the next tour.

      • Datredd23 December 14, 2017

        Honey didn’t Gaga pay to play the super bowl?! Lol Rihanna was not bothered I’m sure she has been offered and considered hun! But the ki is is Gaga needed the Super Bowl to gain some kind of relevance again! Rih on the other hand is far more relevant and her light has never dimmed! She also had way higher album sales and single sales ! Anti destroyed Joanne in sales and singles success by far! So you need to add music to the list of things Rih slays hun! She had a top 5 with no promo and no video Gaga could never!!!

    • TrellBeyLike December 14, 2017

      Beyoncé grossed 100 million before the Formation tour even started LOL

      • kabouterplop12 May 17, 2018

        Silly how could that be? Fake news

  2. Bad_B December 14, 2017

    Chill she’s still on tour lol!

  3. Meme December 14, 2017

    And that my friend is how you shut the haters up.

  4. SMH December 14, 2017

    And they said she was over lol. Real talent can never be over.

  5. 2bad2bme December 14, 2017

    I didn’t even know any of these women were even on tour. Oop!

  6. MClamb4life December 14, 2017

    She’s is the most iconic artist of this decade!

    • Meme December 14, 2017

      A very close 2nd to rihanna. Rihanna is the real icon and influencer of this generation.

      • JOHNVIDAL December 14, 2017

        Influencer music wise? How? What has she bought to the table? Anything new? No. Her team cooks the material for her and that´s pretty much it.

    • Datredd23 December 14, 2017

      Rihanna is the pop pinnacle Of this generation face it no one has scored more number ones top tens or top fives then she has! Number one female streamed artist 3rd year in a row aswell I might add with Anti being the number one female artist of the year! Check Billboards end year charts hun Rihanna is a big inspiration of how these other girls want their careers to be ! Besides Mariah and Madonna no other female can hold a torch to her discography!

      • JOHNVIDAL December 14, 2017

        We are talking about influence. Rihanna has influenced no one. Which is normal since her “special” talent is nowhere to be seen. She´ll be nobody once she is over. Now Mariah carey has influenced with her singing generations for decades to come. That´s being special, unique and an artist. Having many #1 singles doesn´t matter on that front. It is true that mariah, in top of that (her talent), also has many #1s. Oh, and what´s more, album sales to match LMAO Seriously Rihanna is a joke that has barely sold over 10 million albums in America with 8 pfucking albums. She´s cute for singles. That´s what people use her for. End of story.

      • Datredd23 December 14, 2017

        Your really going there hun? Rihanna has sold over 60 million records worldwide check chart masters ! She is the most pirated and highest selling digital artist of all time and the most steamed female! Soooo many artists have listed her as inspiration and she is praised and renowned throughout the world! You are a level 5 hater. Now she’s influencing the world with fashion and beauty everything she touches turns to gold Fenty Beauty is already iconic so please sit lol

      • JOHNVIDAL December 15, 2017

        LMAO omg Rihanna fans are nothing without the inflated statistics. Barely over 10 million albums in America with 8 albums out. Boom! 🙂

      • Datredd23 December 15, 2017

        @john how many of my points did you just ignore ?! Lol you only have the same tired argument as where i have provided receipts she is light years ahead of Gaga that’s for sure in the sales department and is younger so please hun your shade and hate is tiresome

  7. Suicide Blonde December 14, 2017

    She’s slowly recovering, I’m curious about her next move.

    • Suicide Blonde MUST BE STOPPED December 14, 2017

      won’t be bigger than Bey’s.

      • Suicide Blonde December 14, 2017

        It doesn’t matter, she is 1000 times more talented than Beyoncé.

      • Datredd23 December 14, 2017

        More talented then Bey?! Chile please

      • Suicide Blonde December 14, 2017

        And it’s not even close, she’s a real musician unlike Beyoncé.

      • Datredd23 December 14, 2017

        She definitely cannot ousting or our dance Bey on this planet or anywhere else for that matter and her lyrics are juvenile, has she even had a 90 metacritic or higher album score like Bey? I don’t think so! She can play instruments and her vocals are decent at best!

      • Suicide Blonde December 14, 2017

        She’s musically speaking SUPERIOR to Beyoncé….Beyoncé is a better singer than John Lennon, does that make her more talented?

      • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler December 14, 2017

        Gaga is good but she can hold a candle to bey when it comes to live performances. Madonna better watch out

      • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler December 14, 2017


      • SMH December 14, 2017

        lmao what da fuq is a bey??

      • ??? December 14, 2017

        lmao the roaches are STILL mad that gaga wiped both of that roach’s tired ass superbowl shows right out of existence? lmmfaoooooo

    • JOHNVIDAL December 14, 2017

      Gaga is way more talented and diverse when it comes to music in general than Beyonce. She is a musician. Beyonce has a better voice (not my cup of tea) and more stamina I guess too. But music wise? No contest. And the quality of the music they release is not even the only proof one can check so don´t start saying last Bey´ albums are more acclaimed. She didn´t have anything to do with the making of them. Well, she commanded her projects and chose what she wanted to do (that´s more than Rihanna definitely). But she didn´t make the music. Plain and simple.

      • Datredd23 December 14, 2017

        Didn’t Mark Ronson and Redone literally make Gaga’s career and wrote all of her music she is not that talented in that department sorry ! Where as Bey wrote independent women and others! Gags music has not been that groundbreaking nor inventive Rihanna was doing already avant-garde before Gaga was even thought of ! See Disturbia and Rated R !

      • JOHNVIDAL December 14, 2017

        LMAO You literally are so delusional. It´s so easy to detect a real musician. Rihanna and Beyonce are not.

  8. truthteller December 14, 2017

    Can’t believe so many people went to see Ariana Grande. I guess they don’t mind her bad diction and pitch issues

  9. Nancy Schwoerer December 14, 2017

    I was in Atlanta on 11/28 with my daughter-in-law and my adult nieces for the show. It was an Electric performance – high energy and good vibes surrounded all of us! She was the Best!

  10. JOHNVIDAL December 14, 2017

    She really made her era work against all odds. The hate campaign around Joanne´s release date was crazy. They are nowhere to be seen anymore of course. Where is that delusional Katy Perry fan who never missed a Gaga post? lol Of course he/she only lasted for so much, just like their basic pop star idol. Things usually end putting themselves on their place over time 🙂

  11. JOHNVIDAL December 14, 2017

    Special mention to Celine Dion too. She keeps being there year after year since the 90s. Amazing for someone who was supposed to “only” be a vocalist, not a huge performer.

  12. GurlWepa1989 December 14, 2017

    Fear not, Taylor’s new worldwide Stadium will eclipse all your fav in the upcoming year and more dates are being added as we speak due to an overwhelming demand. At the ripe age of 28, slaying album sales like no other and ruling the singles chart and we’ll dominating the tour and endorsements. Something Bey can’t even come close to. Where’s your Diamond album at??? #facts

  13. Caleb December 15, 2017

    Dang I was really hoping for Janet to be somewhere in the top. Still, Gaga still isn’t touching Madonna’s tour numbers.

  14. Mase December 15, 2017

    Can we stop comparing artist numbers to other artist numbers? Beyonce ain’t everybody’s cup of tea (she’s not mine) and Gaga isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but to me she’s my idol. Everyone has different preferences. Not because I’m a Gaga fan but she is more diverse and talented than Beyonce. Even Rihanna is more diverse and edgier than B. The issue with bey is that she sticks to basics but if it ain’t broken why fix it?

  15. Mase December 15, 2017

    Ya’ll are so annoying wanting to be comparing everybody to Bey like do ya’ll realize some of us , let me rephrase that .. a LOT of us don’t care for her. Her fans must make everything so annoying like shut up

  16. DanYiel Iman December 15, 2017

    Didn’t hear anything from the album so, if it works for her sure..
