  2. i was so disappointed by this - beyonce has got to be the least theatrical performer out there. everything she does is so repetitive and small scale.. this was just exactly what she does on tour

  3. Beyonce appeared to lip-synch her way through her set. Not a good look.

    Her voice just doesn't cut it anymore. Andy Towle's enthusiasm for her is misplaced, bizarre, and out of step with most of the gay men I know.

  6. JMC, lmao! What us blacks love the Bey? Even if most of our race cane sing and dance better then her? Sans the bleaching, surgery, fake hair and entitled attitude of course.

    Well I must be a white gay this time round!

    Oh and black gay men, get a brain and some self respect; listen to Grace Jones. And Grace HATES Beyonce. Patti as well. All the oldies actually cause her attitude is just nasty.

  8. Apart from a brilliant piece of choreography in the middle of the set, it was self-aggrandising, and boring. The faux-humility, throwing her child in, and endless, endless "Drink in my strutting tits and arse" without anything else or emotional anchor, except an attempt to pin feminism on it, is tiresome. Like being force fed warm peppermint creams and soft porn.

  9. Beyonce is not a feminist and she is no great supporter of GLBT rights.

  10. Love her new stuff but c'mon hubby, "the best live performer today" ?!? Don't be a Kanye jerk.

  11. BEYONCE is the messiah we have been waiting for.

  12. we beyonce fans are so lazy, we couldn't vote for her to win the video fo the year, instead that twerking white trash miley won

  13. I can see some jealous ugly white people. Michael jackson, janet jackson, james brown,beyonce, kanye west are all black, you white people make bad terrible music, look at miley and taylor swift, pathetic.

    Posted by: BRUNO | Aug 25, 2014 5:16:32 AM

  14. Jealous white faggots, beyonce is the best female performer ever, she's black so deal with it, jealous racists white fools,

    Posted by: BRUNO | Aug 25, 2014 5:17:54 AM

  15. White people pls be happy for someone for once who doesn't have the same colour as you. Madonna gcan never do what beyonce did, she sang her entire album, danced in 6 inch heels, didn't miss a beat, be grateful, white devils

    Posted by: BRUNO | Aug 25, 2014 5:19:33 AM

  16. As always... Yawn. I've tried to give her a chance but she's always been boring to me. No, in fact, what's even worse offence is that she's actually incredibly bland. I can't name even one thing she's said or done that I would find even remotely interesting.

    Remember when she was on Oprah and The Big O asked if she likes to read? She said "Yes!" in a very enthusiastic manner but when Oprah asked her favorite book, she couldn't name any. Not even one book.

    Oprah was trying to help her, saying "it can be any book... A children's book, perhaps?" (<-- LOL @ that) but, no, Beyonce couldn't name a book. It was probably the most awkward couple of minutes in the history of TOWS (and that's a lot!) until Oprah finally decided it was time to move on.

  17. White people and their jealousy, pls go to grindr and be racist, not here on towleroad. Reckneck with small red dicks

    Posted by: BRUNO | Aug 25, 2014 5:21:04 AM

  18. white people are the ugliest of all racist, you pricks age terribly, wrinkles everywhere. Beyonce killed it, she destroyed the VMA,whites be happy for blacks for once, when you win 18 grammy's then you can talk but for now shut up.

    Posted by: BRUNO | Aug 25, 2014 5:31:50 AM

  19. Meh

  20. So much adulation for
    unimportant people (Kim kardashian swaying?)

    Time to grow up?

  21. Remember when Beyonce reportedly performed for the anti-gay Gadaffi family for a fee? What sort of standards does she have? She's not on our side.

    Posted by: petey | Aug 25, 2014 7:00:50 AM

  22. She is talented yet boring-because she is very repetitive and nowadays is full of weak songs.

  23. Well this comment thread got taken over quickly by the usual uninformed trolls. Another day at Trollroad.

  24. Oh and Beyoncé has never bleached her hair nor has had any plastic surgery.

    Posted by: Brian W. | Aug 25, 2014 8:05:17 AM

  25. *bleached her skin
