Celebrities on Beyoncé

I’ve always had the curiosity to find out what those who know Beyoncé think about her, especially the celebrities. Here are in the following lines some statements about the personality, talent and modesty of Mrs. Carter. I have to do more searching, because what you see below is just a small part of the declarations made ​​over the time, about Queen B. With time, if I will find other information, I promise you solemnly that I will complete the article!

“I am delighted that Beyoncé is continuing to support 46664, particularly as she gave so generously of her time last November when she joined me in Cape Town for ‘46664: The Concert. By pledging to donate part of her tour receipts to our campaign she is showing her commitment again. Her leadership, and the involvement of the people of America, is critical in our mission to raise global awareness of HIV/AIDS, as well as funds to help us support those affected by AIDS and prevent the further spread of HIV in Africa. I wish her well on the tour, and thank her and all the 46664 artists for their incredible continuing support.” – Nelson Mandela

“I often wonder why they don’t make artists like us any more. We’re the ones still out there, born on the road. The music industry has changed completely. There’s too much music now. I’d hate to be a singer starting out. You can only make money by touring, but you can only tour if you have a body of work, and that’s what all us oldies have got: a proper body of work. I look around and I don’t see anyone outstanding. It’s all changed. Back in the day, our job was being rock stars. If you looked back at the front pages of the tabloids in the Seventies, you wouldn’t see us on them. We didn’t have to deal with that instant fame; we just got on with the job. […] There are a few good ones about, but not many. Beyoncé is a class act.” – Rod Stewart

“These young ladies have just really empowered me for the 21st century. I mean, Miss Beyoncé doing ‘Sweet Love’ on her live video – I mean that just touches me. And just the support that these ladies give me is amazing. They just give me an energy that I didn’t know I would have right now.” – Anita Baker

 “In a world of divas and superstars, there is only one Beyoncé.” – Usher

 “She’s so kind. She is such a beautiful person, and I gotta tell you, I just adore her. I had kind of lost faith a little bit in meeting artists in the business — and then I met Beyoncé. She is a real, real woman.” – Lady Gaga 

“What I like about her is that she knows what she’s doing, she really did her homework and decided to stay elegant.” – Tina Turner

 “It was all the girls from Glee, and then Beyoncé, and Gwyneth – it was the most fabulous bathroom break ever! You know the thing in magazines where they say ‘Stars: They’re Like Us!’…Beyoncé is like us!” – Dianna Agron (Glee cast)

 “I’m a huge fan of Beyoncé, she’s incredible.” – Florence

 “I don’t really follow every new act – they come out constantly. There are so many, it’s often hard to keep track, and sometimes they’re here today and gone tomorrow. I admire my friends, like Beyoncé – people who seem destined to be doing this for a living with longevity.” – Mariah Carey

“She’s an incredible lady and I absolutely consider her a friend.” – Alicia Keys

“Beyoncé is the biggest star we’ve seen in 20 years.” – Simon Conwell

 “I would love to actually be able to meet her and be in the same space to really genuinely thank her and her team for the opportunity [to tour with her]. It’s kinda like being co-signed by someone who’s already legendary.” – Shontelle

 “Beyoncé is a genius and a perfectionist when it comes to her shows.” – Shontelle

 “She is the Queen. Epic. She embodies what I’d like to become as an artist because she’s not just beautiful on the outside. She is just a sweet, genuine person and really disciplined. A truly powerful woman. She’s works hard, has endless talent, and is really driven. That’s how I’d like to be. Women like Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, and Mary J. Blige who have overcome odds, but they remain strong and grounded.” – Shontelle

 “That is a damn fine song, the Beyoncé song … because it’s infectious.” Hanks said “Single Ladies” resonates with him because that’s what he told his wife, actress Rita Wilson, when they first met: “I’m gon’ put a ring on that finger. I’m gon’ take that thing home.” – Tom Hanks

 “Beyoncé! She’s my Queen” – Sia

 “She’s a true diva.” – Katy Perry 

“I feel like I’m at a point in my life right now where I could potentially stick around. I don’t feel like a diva, but I think diva is a great and powerful word in the sense of what Beyoncé makes it.” – Katy Perry

“[Beyoncé] is the greatest living artist we have to date!” – Kanye West

 “Beyonce is a great girl, so lovely and down to earth and talented. She’s definitely inspiring for females. […] I might go into acting like she did.” – Leona Lewis

“Oh my God! I just met Beyoncé again! And this time I didn’t cry. She listened to my songs. My heart is racing.” – Alexandra Burke

“I’ve never done a tour before, so I’m inspired by watching Michael Jackson’s tour This Is It and watching Beyoncé’s old tours.” – Alexandra Burke

 “Just her name alone defines greatness, right? That push that every woman wants to be… that driven. When I met her, she was a super sweetheart. The fact that she complimented me, I never forgot that. That stuck with me. […] That was something big for me.” – Nicki Minaj

 “I am obsessed with Beyoncé, I promise you. When I met her I turned into an absolute gabbling (chatting) fool; I was so embarrassed. She came to film the finale of X Factor, so I knew she was coming to sing with Alexandra Burke. I was watching rehearsals crying my eyes out because everything was coming to an end, Alexandra was incredible and then Beyoncé turned up. She didn’t have a scrap of make-up on, her hair was pulled back into a ponytail, she wore a plain white t-shirt and skinny jeans with heels, and she was unguarded and encouraging. […] So by the time it got me to meet her I had had a glass of wine, I was a mess from crying, and then I just gabbled (chatted) this whole load of rubbish: ‘you are what every woman should aspire to be, you are amazing, I love you!’. […] Her mum was there and she must have thought I was a weirdo. I wanted to be cool and all like, ‘Hi B, how’s it going?’ But oh no!” – Cheryl Cole

 “I studied Beyoncé a lot and her concerts for her kind of confidence… and I’m lucky that I know some singers in real life.” – Gwyneth Paltrow

 “I asked my two great singer friends Faith Hill and Beyoncé who are super successful on the level that Kelly Canter is supposed to be. I picked their brains and I watched them and watched their concerts and I really tried to get them. They were wonderful to me, so supportive. I could cry thinking about how incredible they were to me. You know, a good girlfriend is such a valuable thing, it really is, and they really stepped up to the plate for me.” – Gwyneth Paltrow

 “Beyoncé is the most talented human being on the planet. She has so much mastery over what she does. It’s not even confidence – it’s on a whole other level. It’s mind-blowing.” – Gwyneth Paltrow

“They are incredible people, very kind and generous. She’s amazing at everything. She’s so good it’s nauseating. She’s so perfect it’s hard to take!” – Gwyneth Paltrow

 “I want to be like Beyoncé. She is the ultimate woman. You look at her and you don’t think, I wonder what her personal life is like. You look at her and you go, That girl on the stage is a superstar. You don’t care about anything else; you only care about her music. So I would hope that would be me in the future.” – Miley Cyrus

“I’m scared of audiences. I don’t like touring.[…] I was about to meet Beyoncé and I had a full-blown anxiety attack. Then she popped in looking gorgeous, and said, ‘You’re amazing! When I listen to you I feel like I’m listening to God.’ When she later found herself on a balcony, crying hysterically, the singer asked herself,  ‘What would [Beyoncé’s alter ego] Sasha Fierce do?’ That’s when Sasha Carter [her alter ego] was born.” – Adele

“I am really excited to hear what she comes back with. She is an amazing artist and she kills it! No denying that!” – Christina Milian

“I have a lot of respect for her and I think she’s an amazing performer.[…] My inspiration came from people like, you know, Prince, Michael, of course, Janet and just a lot of those artists that have been there for so long, but watching them [Destiny’s Child] was definitely motivating.[…] They were more so of a confirmation for me knowing that that’s what I wanna to do.” – Ciara

What the hater says : Episode 1 – Passing out Grammys like hotcakes…

This is a brand new category. It will present a discussion that I met during a counter with a Beyoncé hater. I think it’s very good, as fans, to know our “merchandise” and know how to use it. So here we are with the first episode of  “What the hater says“. The action has taken place on one of those types of videos posted on YouTube that are making comparations between “the divas”. The girl was a Janet Jackson fan, which made her angry on Beyoncé’s existence in the video for “Queen of Pop battle”.

Episode no. 1, titled Passing out Grammys like hotcakes…

Place : YouTube videos

Hater’s “problem” : “Beyoncé doesn’t deserve those Grammys; it’s very easy to take them nowadays and that’s the reason she has 16; these awards have no value.”

Post’s mission : to learn / help fans to handle similar situations.

Post’s “revelations” : Beyoncé does deserve her awards (arguments); unlinking the incorrect comparison made with Janet Jackson; the Grammy’s do have value.

 I’ve seen a comment that said : “Beyoncé is OVERRATED I don’t care what none of y’all say she’s overrated… Just because you have 16 grammy’s don’t make you the biggest artist in the world this generation is passing out grammys like hotcakes…it’s a shame and disgrace that REAL singers never got recognized and NEVER GOT A GRAMMY..cont”.

A smile shined on my face, and then, after some seconds, I started to clarify my mind. She wanted to suggest the idea that Beyoncé got all those awards because it is very easy nowadays to get them. From this it infers she believed that all of her awards have been taken with ease, hence the period of “nowadays” starts with year 2000 in her vision, because that’s the year when Beyoncé started winning Grammys. Then I picked her up and otherwise. Janet, who has released four studio albums since 2000, failed to take throughout the decade, with the same ease, even half of what Mrs. Knowles took in 2004. Let’s do a little comparison to Madonna, to eliminate the factor “Beyoncé had more promotion, was a newer and more contemporary artist than Janet, was more popular …”

I chose Madonna because she started her career in the same year with Janet and has an older age than Mrs. Jackson. So, Madonna, in the past ten years, was nominated at the Grammys 18 times, raising four awards. Janet was nominated only seven times, winning one trophy. These data show that Janet has had only 39% of Madonna’s nominations, and has won only 25% of Madonna’s Grammys. Why? This time there were the same conditions. Why was this happening? Madonna had higher intake for the awards that worth nothing? So back to the comparison that she have done between Beyoncé and Janet. Why didn’t Jackson got those trophies? After I told her all these, she replied me “okay..let me clear myself when I say now-a-days I mean in this generation like from 1990+ that’s what I meant.”. Well, well…so, according to her, some of the prizes that her idol took in the Nineties were also “given like hotcakes”? Then she stated : “there are a few people that had huge success bigger than beyonce has and they NEVER received a grammy in their career. 1) Jimi Hendrix, 2) Queen, 3) Diana Ross, and 4) Bob Marley”. If she previously said that nowadays meant 1990 –  present, then why did she jump in the 1959 – 1989 period? Through the comparation with these icons, it is understood that she claims that in their golden age the hotcakes were also very fashionable…I see the logic becomes a tricky thing when hate haunts us. Now, here are the clear answers :

Affirmation : “there are a few people who had huge success bigger than beyonce has and they NEVER received a grammy in their career. 1) Jimi Hendrix, 2) Queen, 3) Diana Ross, and 4) Bob Marley… this generation is passing out Grammys like hotcakes”

Answer : Grammy Awards were created to assess the artists with the greatest impact in the United States on each year (excluding the special/achievements ones). A Grammy Award is not given according to worldwide success, or status as a music legend. This makes her argumentation through those big name artists meaningless in this context. There are three types of artists.

1st : The ones that have become icons only because of their talent(s). They have no hits, or just a few, but they are known all over the world and they are respected. Some examples could be Ray Charles, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige, Kate Bush, Elton John or even Tina Turner. There are no more than 5 worldwide hits from each of them, even less than that. They are those of whose work is only known integral and well understood by music listeners, by persons that appreciate music that’s not for the masses. They are recognized as music legends only because of their style, their impact on other artists (always quality artists) or of one of their few masterpieces, but surely for their natural endowment. They are usually on the soul, jazz, blues, country, classical or rock’n’roll genres.

2nd : The ones that are everywhere, that are having hits, concerts, popularity, sales, records, videos, promotion and all. Michael Jackson, Madonna, Janet Jackson, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Britney Spears, Rihanna and others. They are well known all over the world in their prime period, in one word, they are superstars. Some of them can be included on the first category, fact that makes them lasting even after their bodily dead. But most of them are having their time when they are very appreciated, which ends after their careers are over. They have #1s in over 20 countries, record-breaking concerts, and lots of expose. They fit, usually, the pop, R&B, dance and hip-hop styles.

3rd : This category is the smallest, because it contains those that are having both talent and superstar status. In this we can name as symbols Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston. The genres they adopt are usually pop, R&B, with some soul, blues or funk influences.

 Affirmation :  “it’s a shame and disgrace that REAL singers never got recognized and NEVER GOT A GRAMMY”

 
Answer :  First of all I should explain some words. A singer is a person who sings, especially a trained or professional vocalist. Claiming that Beyoncé is not a great one reflects immaturity, not understanding in the field or simply too much hate to accept the reality. Talking about Grammys, 8 of 16 of her awards are for her vocal talent, meaning 50% of her total wins. I think the girl wanted to say artist, which consists in a person who works in one of the performing arts, as an actor, musician, or singer; a public performer. I clarified previously this subject. The Grammy Awards were created to assess the artists with the greatest impact in the United States on each year. I think I was very clear. And also, it depends on what each understands as being “real”.
 
Conclusion : When you meet with such situations that you know is saying something incoherent, and you’re sure that the correct version is yours, do not hesitate to speak your opinion politely and with good arguments!

Janet Jackson and Beyoncé Knowles – Comparation (3rd round)


We announced some time ago that we will start posting a series of comparisons between Janet Jackson and Beyoncé Knowles that includes eight rounds. Let’s remember them :

1st round – Studio albums : Certifications (I made this comparison based on the certifications because the conditions in which they are granted are changed periodically, according to the decline in sales. It’s harder for artists to sell these days because of the amount of people who download.)

2nd round – Studio albums : Chart peaks (The positions on the charts show the influence and impact that those albums had worldwide, compared with the other materials on the market at their release moments.)

3rd round – Hits : Chart peaks (I didn’t make a “Certification” category like I did for the albums because until 00s the majority of singles didn’t sell good, and the certifications for them weren’t were not given properly.)

4th round – Music videos (On arguments and criteria)

5th round – Performing (On arguments and criteria)

6th round – Acting

7th round – Ability to offer variety (in everything)

8th round – RESULT (A complex conclusion)

The first and the second rounds have already taken place, and now we continue with the third!

 Result

A.  Number of hits and years of career  

  • Janet Jackson has achieved 14 worldwide hits (Top 10 in minimum 5 countries) in 28 years career. Let’s make an average from these numbers : 14 : 28 = 0,5 
  • Beyoncé has achieved 15 worldwide hits (Top 10 in minimum 5 countries) in 7 years career. An average of these figures would look like this : 15 : 7 = 2,1

From what we’ve done we see that Beyoncé has more hits than Janet, in a shorter period.

Winner : Beyoncé

B.  Number of singles and hits

  • An average between the number of total singles released and the hits will be calculated. Bigger number results smaller success. 
  • Janet Jackson has released a number of 61 singles in her whole career. So an average would be :   61 : 14 = 4,4
  • Beyoncé has released a number of 20 singles in her 7 years career. Let’s see the average :   20 : 15 = 1,3

Beyoncé has 1,3 and Janet has 4,4, so Knowles has less unknown songs with every single than Janet.

 Winner : Beyoncé

C.  Hits and number of albums

 

  • Bigger number represents more hits from one album. 
  • Jackson has 10 studio albums and Knowles has released 3 discs. 

Janet : 14 : 10 = 1,4

Beyoncé : 15 : 3 = 5

  • Beyonce’s number is bigger so that means that she has more hits off one album than Janet has.

Winner : Beyoncé

D.  Age and hits

  • At the age of 28 we have Janet in ’94. Her statistic back then looked like : 6 (hits) : 28 = 0,2
  •  At the age of 28 we have Beyoncé in ‘10. Her situation by now look like : 15 (hits) : 28 = 0,5

 

Conclusion : Janet Jackson’s rapidity to have more hits in a year (it’s an average don’t forget) is only 77% of Beyoncé’s, to have “flop” singles is with 71% bigger then Knowles’. Also, her number of hits off one album is with 72% smaller than those of Mrs. Carter and Jackson had at the age of 28 only 40% of Beyoncé’s hits.

I am…World Tour, the best selling DVD of 2010 in U.S.

In just five weeks of release, Beyoncé’s I Am…World Tour has become the best-selling music video of 2010 in United States. The title has sold 132,000 copies. It tops Rush’s Beyond The Lighted Stage, which has sold 118,000 copies in 26 weeks and Michael Jackson’s Live In Bucharest: The Dangerous Tour, which has sold 116,000 copies during the entire year.

There’s still one chart week to go in 2010, but Beyoncé’s lead appears insurmountable.

Janet Jackson and Beyoncé Knowles – Comparation (2nd round)

Janet Jackson vs Beyonce Knowles

We announced some time ago that we will start posting a series of comparisons between Janet Jackson and Beyoncé Knowles that includes eight rounds. Let’s remember them :

1st round – Studio albums : Certifications (I made this comparison based on the certifications because the conditions in which they are granted are changed periodically, according to the decline in sales. It’s harder for artists to sell these days because of the amount of people who download.)

2nd round – Studio albums : Chart peaks (The positions on the charts show the influence and impact that those albums had worldwide, compared with the other materials on the market at their release moments.)

3rd round – Hits : Chart peaks (I didn’t make a “Certification” category like I did for the albums because until 00s the majority of singles didn’t sell good, and the certifications for them weren’t were not given properly.)

4th round – Music videos (On arguments and criteria)

5th round – Performing (On arguments and criteria)

6th round – Acting

7th round – Ability to offer variety (in everything)

8th round – RESULT (A complex conclusion)

The first round has already taken place, and now we continue with the second!
