Watch: Beyonce Delivers Powerful ‘Dear Class Of 2020’ Graduation Commencement Speech

Published: Sunday 7th Jun 2020 by Sam

Beyonce helped the class of 2020 graduate with an impassioned speech that will no doubt resonate in earnest.

Full story below…

The global health crisis has forced the cancelation of many a graduation ceremony.

However, YouTube stepped up to honor millions of graduates across the US with live special ‘Dear Class Of 2020’ and Queen Bey was on-hand.

In a potent 10-minute speech, she uplifted, encouraged, and celebrated the graduates.

Deeply personal, she drew on her own narrative –  the highs, the lows, and the challenges – including starting Parkwood Entertainment and owning her masters. She also addressed the calls for justice over the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery:

Key Quotes:

“The killings of George Floyd,  Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and so many others has left us all broken. We’ve [also] seen that our collective hearts – when put to positive action – can start the wheels of change”

********

“The entertainment business is still very sexist. To run my label & management company, to direct my films, and produce my tours. That meant ownership. Owning my masters. Owning my art. Owning my future. And writing my own story.”

********

“If you’ve ever been called dumb, unattractive, overweight, unworthy, untalented. Well, so have I. Whatever you do, don’t let negativity of those projecting their own fears on you deter you from your focus.”

********

“Every human-being is born with a masterful gift. Don’t make the world make you think you have to look a certain way to be brilliant.”

***********

Incredible!

    She so beautiful but so robotic
    No emotion.

    She use to be so funny and full of life and shady back in her destiny child days

    Watching those old destiny’s child clips and interviews , I dont even recognize who the woman is.
    It’s like an entirely different person from the beyonce we see today.

    • I+love+big+black+c** June 7, 2020

      https://youtu.be/BMTnqQQOUiA Beyoncé’s DIVA Moment. I love it when she threw shade to other group members. She handled drama very well, unlike fifth harmony

    • DC3 FOREVER June 7, 2020

      You clearly didn’t watch the video… like it’s not possible. You commented first just to hate before you actually watched the video. She spoke with so much emotion and impactfulness. Why do you pride yourself on hating on everything? Like is your life that horrible? It’s so sad

      • Clarks0o0ñ June 7, 2020

        “She spoke with so much emotion ”

        Emotion? Bìtch where?
        I watched this speech on Instagram.
        Beyonce is lifeless as always

        Yes she’s trying to evoke emotion and personality but it just falls flat.
        She’s too rehearsed.
        Everything about her is rehearsed and planned.
        That’s why her performances are very good but lacks emotion. Too perfect that it becomes boring to watch.

      • April Summer June 7, 2020

        Too boring to watch to WHOM? A useless troll on a second rate music blog? HMPH. Beyonce sells out stadiums hunny. Nobody is spending their hard earned money on boring performances b****.

    • DC3 FOREVER June 7, 2020

      If she is “always too boring to watch” why do you continue to watch her?

  2. tyty June 7, 2020

    Bless Beyoncé she obviously has a hard time when it comes to public speaking…..she just stiff as f*** 😂😂 she expresses herself much better though music.She tried at least 👸🏽

  3. Peter Piper June 7, 2020

    She’s speaking more eloquently these days. Perhaps during her time off she got her GED. This was nice, Queen Beyoncé. And this isn’t shade, I’m a fan of Bey, but it’s clear her speaking has always needed…practice

    • Doja minaje thee stallion June 7, 2020

  5. Diabetes UNBOTHERED June 7, 2020

    The Queen Bey is aging like Butter Silk N Honey… Pushing 50 yet still Doesn’t look a day over 24! Meanwhile Riri looking like a whole AUNT ever since trying to gain weight but doesn’t wear extra weight like the Queen always does.

    Worker Bees AKA Beys proteges Chloe X Halle are both well on their ways to RUIN and wreck careers just like their Mother Bey has been doing since 03

  9. Gigi June 7, 2020

    She sounds like a dumb robot. How can a woman with that much money sound so dumb.

    • tyty June 7, 2020

      Ever heard Elon musk talk? You’re a moron if you equate the sound of her voice with how smart she is. She is just a awkward public speaker. Next you will be saying people who stutter sound dumb too smh!!!

      • Fifi June 7, 2020

        She sounds dumb af. Period. Stay mad about it. I can’t help it you worship someone who sounds slow.

    • tyty June 7, 2020

      You’re the one whose Big Mad 😂😂 worship nah that’s what you do. She got more power over you than she does me. I use rational your hate got you throwing basic logic out the window 🤷🏽‍♀️ Sounds like she got a whole load of control over you

  10. Tori June 7, 2020

    For all of rhe people saying she can’t talk or she speaks bad, LET IT GO! ITS OLD! ITS OVER WITH! MOVE ON! When you can’t hate on anything, you’ll start making s*** to validate your hateful opinion.

  11. Ratexxx June 7, 2020

    She can barely move her face

    There’s nothing genuine about this dumb broad

    You’re supposed to be a billionaire and yet you can’t barely speak English

    English is my third language and I sound educated

    • Bogus June 7, 2020

      Lol as she said in the speech I’ve been called dumb. And here you go saying the same old s***. I could never let someone get me as bothered as Beyoncé makes you. Better out that energy somewhere else cause you haven’t stopped her money from rolling in nor her fans from adoring her. 🤓

    • Strawberry June 8, 2020

      Beyonce is not only the Queen of Pop & Soul, she’s also the most Beautiful girl in the world. 100x more beautiful, 50x more intelligent and 10x more articulate than that ghetto ass JEALOUS Loser “RatedXXX” above.
      #Respect the gotdam Queen & Watch the Gotdam THRONE!!!****

  12. A&R June 7, 2020

    I’m not sure I’ll ever full understand why ppl feel the need post such hateful comments on these celebrities… especially during times like these. Like, why do some of y’all waste the energy needed to typos these type of comments? I foresee the internet being regulated in a few years because of hateful ish like this.

    It’s mind blowing.

  13. Diabetes UNBOTHERED June 7, 2020

    I’m Not surprised with the MASTERS bit. Bey Been OWNING her MASTERS since Day 1. she Wrote and Produced GIFT FROM VIRGO all by herself, the entire Beat to that song was created and Enginered by Bey and Bey Alone in the Studio. Bey also wrote and produced HEARTBEAT (a song she wrote for dead children) along with that Dear Nikki song she wrote for Nikki Minaj to help with that Trash Feeling Myself song and video.

  14. Diabetes UNBOTHERED June 7, 2020

    * CORRECTION the song bey wrote for Nikki Minaj is titled Darling Nikki not dear nikki

  15. Divab June 7, 2020

    I’m so tire of these so call opinions of these haters. Beyoncé did in so many ways addressed her haters from years past about her and her career letting these people know she owns her masters and own her own management company and how people spoke negatively about her but she overcame negativity and is one of the most positive entertainer in today’s society. Her speech was so positive and encouraging for these graduates 🎓 of 2020 . I just wish everyone of these haters of Beyoncé always with negative opinions, she’s damm if she do and damm if she don’t I just wish they would step back and stop being so negative always

  16. DC3 FOREVER June 7, 2020

    ITS JUST MIND BOGGLING THAT THE SAME PEOPLE HATE AND HATE ON BEYONCÉ BUT YET CONTINUE TO WATCH EVERYTHING SHE DOES JUST SO THEY CAN HATE…. like how does that make any sense?!
