Beyonce Janet Jackson Feud

Beyonce Janet Jackson Feud – Even a blind person could see this one coming.Beyonce’s recent comments on Janet Jackson has gotten her into some trouble according to reports.The National Enquirer claims:

“…The Jackson family came from Gary, Indiana and there was a time they barely squeaked by. But Janet has many loving memories and is incensed that Beyonce would make a crack like that.”
“She feels Beyonce went out of her way to tell the world she’s from the upper class and the Jacksons were like a bunch of dirty gutter rats.”
“Janet is proud of her family and how they came from nothing and became superstars.”
“Not only is Janet telling everyone who will listen that Beyonce has a lot of growing up to do and that she needs to stop trying to impress everyone, she’s planning to confront Beyonce herself and read her the riot act.”

Here is what Beyonce said that pissed Janet off:

“I grew up upper class. Private school.” “My dad had a Jaguar. We’re African-American and we work together as a family, so people assume we’re like the Jacksons, but I didn’t have parents using me to get out of a bad situation.”

Beyonce or Janet Jackson?

    Janet has no right to call herself a so called superstar, since her albums have been failing miserably and her concerts have not been selling out. no one cares, seriously who cares?!! she’s just jealous that anything beyonce releases will sell triple what she’s making, hahah.

    • Tamar says:

      She can call herself a superstar her albums are only failing in the us because people in the us dont open thier minds and try new things they dont even give her a chance beyonce aint got nothing on her what can she be jealous of beyonce about you might not care but other people do and people only like beyonce because she shakes her butt beyonce uses some of janet jacksons stuff so for your information she is a SUPERSTAR

  2. Eddie says:

    I think Janet has accomplished more than Beyonce. But beyonce can sing way better than Janet and Beyonce sales in albums are definately better. I know for a fact.

  3. me me says:

    its sad that it had to end up like this a cat fight. and yes, now that janet is pregnant? she has been lying for years about being pregnant. Janet knows the history of the J-5 yes and her nipple exposure… she is correct they are not gutter rats. but they are and will go down in history as a blunder!!! unless they are brought back out into the lime light again like the ” Osmonds family”.
    Janet is in her 40′s leave 27 year old B alone to grow and grow. Words should not hurt Ms Jackson anyway…. she is known for the best strip tease on u-tube with that Boy tied up at one of her concerts when she was Fierced and Bold

  4. WaWa says:

    It doesn’t matter who sold the most records, who’s older than who, its just a childish fued between two very talented superstars-both having sold out concerts, double platinum record, being great dancers, but with their two VERY DIFFERENT styles and audiences.So yes it is unfair to conpare the two. Things were said that could have been avoided and it’s really their personal business among the two of them. Their is, seriously, bigger things going on in this world that each one of us have to deal with so just deal with the things that matter. Janet has as we say ” made mistakes”- Beyonce is young and just like all of us she will make “mistakes” as well.

  5. STAR GAYZR says:

    People tend to look at an artist if they are hot right now or not but fail to look at the total body of work and years in the industry. Janet has solidified her place in music history. She paved the way for the Beyonce’s and Britney’s and other female artists. Once you have arrived and Janet has for quite sometime now,she can never go back and to say she is not a superstar is just not correct. The industry has gotten much better for females because of trail blazers like Janet. There are going to be peaks and valley’s in every career so as it is in life itself.

  6. nina says:

    I think Bee wasn’t in a positon to bring Janet’s family into the interview..
    She was supposed to talk about her story..

  7. danielle says:

    nina you are so right…

  8. Ashley says:

    I can not believe Beyonce when she says she is “upper class”. The girl can barely speak English properly. Irregardless and Conversate are NOT REAL WORDS. Her grammar and sentence syntax are horribly incorrect. She lived an upperclass life, but she wasnt taught to be upper class one bit

  9. Tammie says:

    Beyonce it was said to me only has about 5 more good yrs.left…so she has to do something. She cannot take Janet/Tina Turnerplace(shaking her a$s). Janet is a REAL dancer

  10. Jerae Williams says:

    I think everyone is misunderstanding Beyonces comment. She was simple saying that she wasn’t forced into the industry like the Jackson’s, she wanted the success for herself, and the comment wasn’t geared toward my girl Janet. I love both of them and they both are very talented. I think people just need to grow up and let individuals be themselves. its not always about who sells the most music, its about the passion they have for the music. Beyonce is still growing and she has made a name for herself just as well as janet made her name, so chill out wit the foolish antics, these people are not paying our bills where paying theirs.

  11. Jweezy says:

    HOLD UP WAIT A MINUTE! When did this become a popularity contest? We dont care if you think so and so is better. (In my opinion Janet is a legend, beyonce has some ways to go). I feel that even if Beyonce didnt mean any harm she still had no right to bring up the jackson family, let alone try to put them down.

  12. Laia says:

    I agree with those of you who says it is not a popularity contest. And if it were, I have to admit, all of you have SOME good points. But Nina hit it dead on…. Beyonce was not in a position to bring Janet’s family into that interview. And whether or not she meant harm… HOW she said it says a lot about who she is and how she thinks. True, it doesn’t say who she is as an overall person (and I don’t know her), but damn it, I got a hell of a glimps!

  13. Betzy says:

    Janet = LEGEND, Beyonce = WANNABE JANET. Let’s face it, every “pop princess” out there has an inkling of Janet. Ms. Jackson is a true entertainer.

    Beyonce was out of line comparing her EASY upper class upbringing to the Jackson’s unpriviledged and hard working background.

  14. Kofiko143 says:

    Janet has every right to consider herself a SUPERSTAR! Beyonce IS talented but TRUST that she was immulating and aspiring to be JUST like Janet when she was still in her diapers. Beyonce needs to learn how to be humble and respect the artists who paved the way for her. Being born into money does not give you the right to badmouth people who are not and it is WAY more inspiring to here that people made it from nothing. Need I remind everyone that Janet has sold over 100 million records and is one of the richest women in show business! Even without her recent records not selling as much!!! THANK U!!!!

  15. Sharing My Thoughts says:

    I have always been a fan of both Janet and Beyonce. I was shocked to hear what Beyonce said about Janet (another black woman) I thought it was very tacky and out of line. When Janet started in the game there was no other black woman in the business period that could dance like her and sold as many records and she is still around 20 years latter that has to mean something. And her dancing is not just about shaking her but and taking her clothes off the girl has a true talent. If Beyonce mentioned her at all it should have been to say that she was proud of what she acomplished for black woman regardless of where she came from. And I’m sorry but I did not get the memo that Beyonce’s CD’s were only sold to “upper class”. Some of the money in the Knowels bank account was put there by some “lower class” that has the same background as the Jacksons.

  16. Jerae says:

    OK once again I bow down to a Trail Blazer, but we have to consider the Ram in the bush. It’s time to let go of the past and get wit the now. We can not beat down Beyonce, first of all neither one of us can say that we know her personally, nor pull facts or a taped interviews, all this is is a bogus rumor that got out of control. Like the rumor about the two drag queens dancing with her in the single ladies video, its all bogus. And secondly, Beyonce gives ample credit to the women in the industry who have paved the way including Janet, watch her interviews and performances, you’ll see a tremendous amount of influences come out of her work, she’s great at what she does. I went to Beyonces last tour, and I was more than entertained i was impressed, who else can dance in heels for the entire show? not even Janet Kids! Not to mention I also went Janets last tour and I was deeply disappointed with her performance, its was painful to watch Janet perform like that. Can I get a witness? Janet has accomplished a great deal of success, but its time to past the Diva torch because beyonce is on her way to break records, TRUST and BELIEVE. Matter of fact, do me a favor all of you Beyonce haters, take a look on the Billboard Charts and see who is at number 1. Please stop hating on the girl, and let her do her thang, she ain’t going nowhere. The more you hate, the stronger she’ll get, TRUST ME. Give it up Kids!

  17. sharon says:

    Didn’t Matthew quit his job to pimp Beyonce. In addition, he let her shake her a$$ and dress like a prostitute for money, recognition, and album sales. That’s real upper class, Beyonce.

    On another note, they wasted their money on private school for that chick. She is as dumb as a box of rocks. Did she graduate from high school?

  18. Cory says:

    Its time Beyonce got b$$$h Slapped and brought back down from her high horse. Remember Beyonce just as easily as you made it to the top,Falling down from the top is faster and your time will come. Beside you can’t sing anyway.You have just became another sex sells artist with no real artistic traits at all. Your ugliness is showing now!

  19. The Observer says:

    I don’t care how much she sold. The point is she has no right to mention another family’s plight to highlight her achievement. That is the most bourgeois move I’ve ever seen. First of all she entered the business almost 40 years after the Jacksons. I wonder how different her life would’ve been 40 years previous. Oh yeah and my dad had a Jaguar! Private school! You’re dad was Houston rich but you are still low class. The Jacksons are strange but they are/were classy. When you lap grind Terrence Howard in front of your dad, and then Diana Ross has to check you at an award show for putting too much out there you better check yourself. I don’t care how she meant the comment its a low class move.

  20. ribbone says:

    I am just so so sick of this dragon breath chic. I can not believe Jay married her cause she doesn’t seem to have a clue and he seems to be so smart. Her career will never be looked back on as Janet’s has. It’s debatable whether she can even sing and dance. She screams too much and she get a lot of her dances from band routines. Beyonce’s career will never measure up to Janet’s. Janet’s record sales slowed down in her mid 30′s, Beyonce is lucky if she has one more album left in her. I believe she buys her own albums, and gives them out to establishment s as gifts. The whole comment was really ironic, because everyone knows that Matthew should get the pimp of the decade award. Enough of this chic already, off with her head!!!!

  21. djrjmusic says:

    Janet;
    The first artist to have 7 top 5 hit singles from one album. Has Beyonce done that?
    Janet;
    All three of her movies debuted at #1. Has Beyonce done that?
    Come on… Beyonce maybe the IT girl right now and no doubt she can out sing Janet, but to say Janet is not a superstar… come on. Give props where props are due. She may not be selling like she did in the 80′s but this chick is still in the game for like 22 years.
    Beyonce and Janet’s careers were started by their parents. Beyonce better watch her Ëgo” Rihanna is that chick in waiting.

  22. Cathy B. says:

    Something about this interview (is it real?!?) doesn’t sit too well with FACTS. Beyonce for high school, (I am not sure about elementary & middle) went to the HIGH SCHOOL FOR THE PERFORMING & VISUAL ARTS (HSPVA), that is in the Houston Independent School District (HISD). Her sister Solange went to JOHNSTON MIDDLE SCHOOL at the same time that my son was there (when DC was blowing up). It is also in the HISD. This is common knowledge here in Houston that they attended these schools. Soooo where did PRIVATE SCHOOLS come in to play?!? I don’t think that B meant any harm if she stated this. It just doesn’t sound right. The argument can be made that her dad left his job to manage her….& make money for the family. It is about family…..right?

  23. Melissa says:

    Beyonce’s comments were brutal, inappropriate and disrespectful. She has no room to talk since her father fell a little short himself. I think Beyonce is rationalizing and is in denial about her own father. Truth be told, they both have come through alot of heartache to become great successes. This young generation of kids are obviously not being raised to respect those who paved the way for them.

    Beyonce owes Janet and her family an apology.

  24. PAH says:

    Upper class? Private school? How about she grew up one street over from me in a very typical middle class neighborhood and went to Welch Middle School and the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts – both public schools funded with Houston, Texas tax dollars. Her dad drove an old Jag and her mom owned a hair weave salon. How soon you forget where you came from, B. However, I have not.

  25. Laina says:

    Beyonce cant change what she has already said but i really think she shouls apologize as she had no right to say what she did/
    There are plenty of things that Janet could have highlighted about Beyonce and her family but she chose to be classy.
    Beyonce really needs to take closer look at home before commenting on other peoples famillies

  26. Janet Fan says:

    Can I just say that when I heard the news I was taken aback!! I am not very familiar with Beyonce’; however, I have followed Ms. Jackson’s career for years, and that of the Jackson Family, and I love that family, they are a beautiful family each and every one of them is just precious to me…to think that Beyonce’ would say such a thing about Janet, leaves very little to be desired about Beyonce’s music–that was tacky and I am surprised that someone who claims to have such a upper-middle class up bringing would carry on that way; and just like someone here in this blog said, Janet paved the way for the current female singers, and deserves her respect based on that premise alone, as well as all of the good she has done and charities she has helped, not to mention, the many youths that she has inspired throughout her awesome career!! It was unwarranted and if nothing good comes of this, at least Beyonce’ will actually see that she isn’t really ‘all that’ sales may begin to fall for Beyonce’ as a result of this little indiscretion, because face it Janet has fans, and fans who are not happy with this very tacky blow toward the Jackson Family…and if Janet’s fans were also Beyonce’ fans, they probably aren’t any longer; at least that’s how I feel.

  27. jeromoejomsomn says:

    Straight up, I’m happy to see most of you giving props to J. On the real, I have every Beyonnce album and every Janet album. Let’s not EVEN talk about all the artistic circles Janet runs around this snob. 20 years worth! Also, let’s be honest. I can’t even listen to a WHOLE Beyonce album. Overproduced, police sirens going off and(**&$#! Janet’s I can’t get enough of. And that’s every single one post(Giorgio Moroder). AND to think, some of the albums are over 15 years old. I know twenty years from now I won’t be listening to Beyonnce.

  28. Jerae says:

    I congratulate everyone of you guys for getting your degrees in hater ration. Beyonce is on top face it, Janet is washed up and just doesn’t have it like she used too. Long live the Queen B.

  29. snow white says:

    Maybe she want ever say no crap like that again if everybody stop buying her wack crap and show her how it feels to be in a recession….I wonder how she would like that upper class lol

  30. Michelle says:

    WOW!! ALOT OF YOU ARE MISSING THE BIG BIG AS PICTURE HERE. I LISTEN TO BOTH OF THEIR JANET AND BEYONCE. I READ THE COMMENT BEYONCE MADE AND HAVE NOT READ OR HEARD ANY THING FROM JANET.

    SO! IS IT ME ARE IS IT BEYONCE’S END OF ALL THIS. I’M JUST ASKING WHY WOULD BEYONCE SAY SOMETHING ABOUT A FAMILY THAT GROUP UP IN A TIME WHERE BLACKS HAD TO GO THROUGH SOOO MUCH IN THE 50S TO THE 70S.

    BEYONCE WAS NOT EVEN ALIVE IN THE SAME ERA AS A JACKSON OR MOTOWN WHO HAD TO FIGHT THEIR WAY IN.

    BEYONCE ONLY FIGHT IS TRYING TO HAVE A NUMBER ONE HIT SONG OR ALBUM. SO WHAT THE HELL!!!

  31. dreaming on paper says:

    REGARDLESS OF SOCIECONOMIC BACKROUND, ONE NEVER MAKES ONE’S SELF LOOK GOOD AT ANOTHER’S EXPENSE. THE “UPPERCLASS” CONSIDER IT CLASSLESS TO EVEN DISCUSS POSSESSIONS OR SELF WORTH.

    IT DOESN’T MATTER WHO SOLD WHAT. BEYONCE MISPOKE. THE CLASSY ACT WOULD BE TO OFFER JANET A SINCERE APOLOGY. IN TURN, JANET SHOULD ACCEPT. THIS WOULD ALL BE PUT TO REST, IF THEY WOULD.

    IT IS TIME FOR CHANGE. WE AS A PEOPLE NEED TO BE MORE COHESIVE AND SHOW THE WORLD WHAT WE ARE WORKING WITH. WE ARE A BEAUTIFUL CULTURE WHEN WE CHOSE TO SHINE. IT IS A NEW YEAR. LET US ALL RENEW OUR SPIRIT AND RESOLVE TO BE A BETTER PEOPLE. INSTEAD OF ENVYING EACH OTHER, LET’S MAKE THE WORLD ENVY AND EMULATE US. GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU ALL WELL.

  32. dreaming on paper says:

    what does “your comment is awaiting moderation” mean?

  33. PeBe says:

    Beyonce is just arrogant singer who has no clue about history. Her statement is a proof that she is stupid. So what if she is coming from upper rich family? It won’t make me buy her album.

    I would say that the Jacksons has much more fame as the musician family legend compare to Beyonce’s family that I don’t even know her family name! Could Beyonce’s family ever beat the Jacksons in music history? NEVER!

    I agree with Michelle’s comment as well that Beyonce has nothing compares to what the Jackson’s had struggle for in the 50s to the 70s for African American musicians.

  35. John says:

    How arrogant of Beyonce to make such a statement, it does not matter how you grew up. Upper, middle or lower class. Who really cares. Times were very different in the 50′s and 60′s for black families and especially for large ones like the Jacksons. More power to the Knowles family that they were able to live a upper class life. All families are not that fortunate. Joe Jackson did the same thing Matthew Knowles did, made his family successful. What the Jackson family accomplished was phenomenal. Success in the music industry does not last forever. Seems like Beyonce has become somewhat full of herself. She needs to learn some respect for artists like the Jackson family, especially Janet as a women that paved the way for her.

    Little girl, there are no degrees offered in “hater ration.” I ask this question, “What has she done for you lately?” Janet Jackson has paved the way for myself and my daughter to achieve many life’s prosperity’s. “Silly kid’” negative comments like this is for tricks.

  37. Mistakes happen says:

    I honestly don’t think Beyonce ment the coment the way it came out. We are all guilty of saying something that just didn’t come out right. I don’t think she was slamming the Jackson familly. I think she was saying that she dosent think people should be comparing her to the Jacksons due to the fact that she didn’t have to overcome as many opsticals they did and her life was a lot easier than theirs. I think she was trying to say that they had it much harder and they have over come so much more.

  38. T-bone says:

    This chick has a nasty habit of sticking her foot in her mouth. Every time I see her interview or read an article on her I’m given another reason not to like her. This is no different from the back-handed comments she made in regards to Jennifer Hudson when it was presumed that she was jealous of Jennifers Dream Girls success;and I quote,”I’m already a star. I already have nine grammy’s. Everyone knows I can sing. I wish I could have gained 20 pounds and played Effie”. B!*@# please. SHE WAS JEALOUS! Beyonce is always talking about how humble she is and then she makes comments such as this. She is not humble she’s just a great pretender. Beyonce is full of herself. I can’t wait for this heffa to get a taste of her own medicine. Let’s see how many albums she’s selling when she’s 40+. She already looks 35. We all know how fickle the music industry is. Beyonce has been a great trend but her time is almost up. I guarantee it.

  39. solange is an IDIOT says:

    now her sister is stirring up trouble! They both seem like egotistical BITCHES

  40. lPoeticl says:

    First off…Beyonce’ was wrong to say what she said… It was conceited and stuck up on her part… And shouldn’t have come out of her mouth. Janet Jackson is a legend… and Beyonce’ is like rubble to her. She can’t touch Janet. Yes Janet is older and its past her time, but still the truth remains. If you were to put Beyonce’ back in the time of Janet Jackson, I mean early Janet… Janet would kill her in records sales and concert sales. So before you jump with all the comments just remember where Beyonce’ got her act from….and it wasn’t Sasha Fierce. It’s combined of the legends Tina, Areatha, Janet etc.

  41. Reese says:

    The bottom line is this….Beyonce was out of line with her comments. If she had all of those things then great…wonderful! People come from different backgrounds and circumstances, but it doesn’t make one better than anyone else…which is how Beyonce is coming across with her remarks. Personally, I have more respect for those who have worked hard to make a name for themselves..to come from humble beginnings and achieve great things. Is Janet saying Beyonce is spoiled and had things handed to her on a silver platter? No she’s not. Is Janet saying that Matthews Knowles was just as ruthless and power-hungry in wanting his daughter to succeed, as Joe Jackson is often characterized? No she’s not. Janet has wisdom and class, which she’s always had, but has just improved with age. Beyonce’s “handlers” need to help her to mature and develop into the woman that Janet is and learn not to say hurtful and divisive (and STUPID) things.

  42. Anna says:

    Beyonce should apologize before this spirals further out of control

  43. Shante says:

    Beyonce and her sister what’s her name? oh yea Beyonce’s lil sister are ignorant. That father and his two daughters think they can say anything to anybody. All because they made it in the music industry doesn’t give them a right to disrespect someone who has been in it longer have some respect. But I guess that is what happens when father’s drive their daughter’s in jaguars and are raised upper-class to being filthy rich and everybody kissin their a** they don’t know anything about respect or coming from nothing and making something of yourself. I always knew that Beyonce and her father was the reason for the Destiny split. She is finally starting to show her true colors. Be real get off this I’m shy sh*t. If it was Sasha Fierce that said it keep her a** under control too what goes around comes around. Janet is justified for her anger Beyonce didnt have to mention any names to get her point across.

  44. S says:

    RESPECT YOUR ELDERS!!!!!! beyonce is acting so upity lately. her hair is getting even more blone and her skin gets lighter and lighter with every photoshoot. it looks to me like she is trying to pass. and beyonce is so not original with songs or styles. resent,smash into you and another song off of dangerously in love was done by an old school artist.she copies syles too but janet jackson worked extremely hard to get where she is now and has/had some awesome music. her dancing is original and you can tell when someone is doing a janet move. beyonce as she said herself didnt work that hard a came up easy where is the respect in that. beyonce needs to chill out, i lover her music but shes been acting really arrogant lately.
    STAY CLASSY JANET AND DONT DO ANYTHING CHILDISH!!!!(but if you do then make sure you slam that b$$$h!!!!!)

  45. Slim The Superme says:

    Beyonce is never bigger than Janet…And will never be…Jennifer hudson outshined her in dreamgirls and on stage at the oscars….She just a lead singer who stardom raised out of Destiny Child…Cant even speak correct english….Janet is a Legendary status in music…so is her family…Beyonce and solange trying to do what they did…Solange could have been a star by now if it wasnt for TONY…LOL…Beyonce name will never be next to hers in music…I promise you that….she gonna be known as the little girl from destiny child..because all her music is still the same from that era…teenie bop

  46. v.j says:

    first of all, it was beyonce who brought this to the front. i dont blame janet for defending her family. why did beyonce have to say things about the jacksons. has beyonce gotten amnesia? remember when yo mamma said she and your father seperated and you and solange had to live in an apt? you went to private school but didnt graduate. so your dad had a jaguar. your mom had a salon. does that make you better than the jacksons. they came from nothing to achieve something.you will never be better than janet. she is far more prettier than you. and her acting skills are far more better than yours. just go see tyler perry.janet is right you need to grow up. and soon the knowles family so called empire will soon evaporate. because the most high see and hear all,just get too high and GOD will bring you down. thats why jay-z’z so called hotel here in brooklyn is stalled.treat those less fortunate right.and house of dereon clothes aint all that it is. but all in all the knowles family need to come down from their high horses. just ask kelly why she left the knowles.

  47. Kay says:

    I want to just say that Beyonce has no class and she doesn’t no who is.She needs to stop trying to be like everybody esle and find out who she really is. Beyonce thinks she is the best and there is no one better than her she has a lot of growing up to do. Because she is not the one and only. Janet Jackson on the other hand has class and she is a legend, and Beyonce could never come close to what Janet Jackson has accomplish in this lifetime. Maturity and Character goes hand and hand!

  48. james says:

    as a fan of both the entertainers…i should say that this is a crappy and childish feud…sit the fk down and produce more HOT music…ur the hottest black female artistes of all time

  49. Beyonce H8r says:

    Beyonce’s success has turned her into a narcissitis, self righteous prude.

  50. Gordy says:

    I love you Janet. Sorry 4 da drama.

  51. Sanouske says:

    Personally, I think Beyonce’s music promotes arrogance in young women. That’s my interpretation. Second, her attack on the Jackson family was out of line and unnecessary. Third, every illiterate post I’ve seen on here has done nothing but promote said childishness Beyonce has been promoting. Janet’s place in R & B history is set in stone. Beyonce Knowles has a lot of growing up to do. Sure, she can’t be stopped(as much as I want her to fall off the map), but don’t try to further your name by bashing the name of someone already established.

  52. Truth says:

    In all honesty I must say that Janet needs to get the hell over it. There was a questioned asked trying to tye her in with the Jacksons and she cleared it up. Does it really matter I mean Beyonce was speaking the truth so why get mad about it. Hell her dad was using the kids to achieve something he couldn’t. I just say Janet needs to grow up a little everybody knows the damn Jacksons story. And janet only got her recognition from her brother Michael anyways its not like she started the whole dream.

    • KEENA says:

      I THINK U SHOULD THINK ABOUT WHAT U ARE SAYING. BEYONCE NEEDS TO GROW UP. JANET BEEN IN THE GAME LONGER AND BEYONCE IS A YOUNG BLACK FEMALE THAT IS JUST GETTING THERE AND JANET BEEN THERE. BEYONCE HAVE LOW SELF ESTEEM AND EVERYTHING IS ALL ABOUT COMPETITION WITH BEYOUNCE. SHE WILL DO ANYTHING TO MAKE IT TO THE TOP. THEY ARE 2 DIFFERENT ARTIST & 2 DIFFERENT LIVELY HOODS.

  53. waterfall says:

    I once heard Beyonce say that just because she is rich people think that her feelings do not get hurt. She was saying that when people write things in the magazine about her she gets hurt. (This is for Janet Jackson) Beyonce I love Janet Jacksons music and I like some of your music too. But, remember Janet Jackson is a person too. She may have money, but her feelings get hurt just like anyone else. Beyonce be a woman and apologize to Janet. It does not matter where Janet came from. Look what she has accomplished. Beyonce look what you have accomplished. Be proud of Janet Jackson and be proud of yourself. God Bless you both. I wish someone had gave me a chance. God Bless Janet and Jermaine Dupri. God Bless Beyonce and Jay Z. May God Keep Blessing You. Please Apologize to Janet. Thank You. (Waterfall)

  54. waterfall says:

    Beyonce its me again. If people say things about you in the magazine,
    just ignore them. Pray for them. When they say things about you, just meditate and pray. Beyonce your music is great just like Janet Jacksons.
    It is ok if people want to compare you with the Jacksons. Let them. The Jacksons worked very hard to get to where they are. Beyonce you also worked hard to get where you are. Beyonce also do not let others in on what is going on with you and Janet Jackson. Just apologize to Janet Jackson. I am sure she is hurt. My feelings get hurt fast too. God is looking down on all of us. God can give us things and take them.
    Just don’t let money change you. God Bless You and apologize to Janet
    because people want to see you feud. Don’t let others detour you from being a christian. Look what God has given to you. God Bless you Beyonce. Thank you (Waterfall)

  55. Ml says:

    Wow i just knew it was a matter of time until B showed us her true colors. She is a good dancer but other than that she has nothing on Janet. Its real when they say when you have a lot of money you end up seeing the real side.

  56. BLova10 says:

    Seriously, I think people are going WAYYY to hard on this post. Has anyone that has commented so far even read the alleged article, plus, when did the NATIONAL ENQUIRER become a credible source. As Beyonce has stated before, the media constantly invents drama between her and other successful Black women. There were never stories of hate between her and Shakira when they worked together, but everytime I turn around, it’s B vs. Rihanna, B vs. Jennifer Hudson, etc.

    Give the drama a break! I still support Janet although I think she has made a lot of stupid career moves as of late, and I LOVE me some Beyonce so I wish them both continued success. And if Beyonce said what she said, why apologize now, whether she said it out loud or kept it in, her line of thinking is the same, lol So Janet, keep it moving, you know how ya’ll got in the business and Bey was right, lol

  57. insanelybeautiful86 says:

    OMG! WOW! I see ppl are really upset about the comments. Yes, Beyonce was wrong for the comments and yes they should have never been made, but honestly they are the truth. We’ve all seen Jackson 5. Seriously the comment is equivilent to a white person saying n$$$a, it should stay behind closed doors and not made public. Futhermore Janet is not being caddy, many ppl shoot daggers at her and her family and frankly it’s none of anyone’s business what goes on behind closed doors. It’s her life and her family and anyone who has an opinion should keep it at that; their opinion and not broadcast it for the world to know. Furthermore Beyonce is Beyonce. She’s an exceptional entertainer and is quite beautiful; however she needs to learn that certain comments are and should be made behind closed doors regardless if they are true! Beyond that my daughter loves Beyonce which has made me love the girl also. So her music has grown on me and I hope to see her emerge as a real artist with more adult songs that I can relate to. By the way resentment was a great song, one of her best!

    • Danielle says:

      I agree with you Beyonce was wrong for making that igorant comment but she’s made a couple of those mistakes along the way. I just say to go along and ignore those thoughtless comments that she makes sometimes because sometimes people just talk without thinking. Now I’m not an ultimate fan of Beyonce’s but I don’t hate her either, same way with Janet. As a matter of fact when janet came out I was too little to even be paying attention to music outside of theme music to children shows. Still i’ve grown to love her. Beyonce is a great performer as well, you have to ignore certain comments or moments she have that reminds you of a naive child who doesn’t know what they are saying. Just pay attention to her performances and all else just look at her and smile and nod.

  58. Euro says:

    There is room up there for both artists… I have followed Janet’s music since Control days… she has made so many incredible music video classics like ; Pleasure Principle, That’s The Way Love Goes…Rhythm Nation nobody can touch her dancing skills and Janet’s name is known worldwide just like Beyonce…..

  59. beatriz says:

    Who cares. Yal never met beyonce or janet. Let it go, its not no ones business. dang the fact is neither of em is better den eachother dey both sing dance blah blah blah. Go read a book

  60. beatriz says:

    Alyeshia please Shut the F up. Stop hatin on Beyonce cuz u aint her. and dnt even talk about solange like dat b4 i start rippin on yo ignorant a$s. You think u know it all but u dnt so do us all a favor and shut that hole in yo face. Thanks have a good day

  61. Ainsley says:

    Man i think B is trying too hard to impress everyone and who cares if you come from a rich family that was not called for i thought that she was a down to earth but i was wrong i use to respect her but that got flushed down the toilet beyonce is immature and needs to grow up and try to set an example for the younger generation .

  62. Amy says:

    Why are yaw on here arguing over two females yaw know nothing about and they don’t even know yaw exist. I want to start off with Beyonce fans yaw can’t get mad at Janet for defending her family hell if someone dogged yaw families yaw would be ready to fight especially the way this world is today!!!!!! Another thing I don’t even see why any of yaw care because if Beyonce did say that about Janet and her family don’t worry God will punish her, but he will also punish all of yaw on here calling each other names just to defends these females because I DON’T CARE HOW FAMOUS someone is calling people names is a terrible thing. OK I’m done!!!!!

  63. Yve says:

    It’s amazing how much people think they know about their “stars,” especially when all of Houston and anyone that knows anything about Beyonce Knowles, knows that she was born and raised in the heart of Houston, Texas, and grew up in Third Ward and Missouri City, which are far from “upper class”. What is more is that her parents had more of a hardship to speak of that she should exemplify her pride in being a product of such ingenuity. Even JJ has shown more grace under fire than being catty about what defines her starpower.

    Janet and Beyonce have many more similarities than differences:
    Their fathers were hard working men, regardless of blue collar and white collar.
    Their families fought economic hardships together as a unit to overcome poverty and social stereotypes.
    They both rose from the ghettos of their cities to become headliners in the black elite, setting the precedent for many female musicians and artists to date.
    Each has an unbound talent and style that has set trends across the world.
    And finally, THEY WOULD BE NOTHING WITHOUT THEIR PARENTS BEING INVOLVED IN THEIR VISION OR THE APPRECIATION OF THEIR FANS FOR THEIR CRAFT.

    Janet and Beyonce are gifted, talented, and gorgeous sirens, and unfortunately Beyonce blends well into the shadows of her parents when it comes to being an adult, as you rarely see her “upper class” self appear when her mouth is open. I honestly have to say that I have always admired her parents in managing her career, and I admire her for creating a quality product to market. Janet has brought her fame into her own despite her father, and exudes more in class than the aforementioned by far. The most disappointing factor out of this subject is that Bey could be using her powers for good to make herself look better, as opposed to picking petty fights for media coverage.

  64. TaeDay says:

    Ok, sum of yall are really going in! Cursing each other out! Aint that serious! But I am a fan of both B & Janet! But I have to say wat B said was disrespectful. Its one thing to brag about where u came from to a bunch of fans that are mostly struggling or middle class, but don’t bring nobody’s fam into it! Janet grew up in a fam that used wat they had to get by, hell, most ppl wuld if u had sum talented children! So in conclusion! B was wrong! & yes she is not on Janets level but in time could get there!

  65. Zikk says:

    Janette’s lame now…
    But who cares? Seriously?
    Bey is the new bomb…

    Anyway what’s with her fashion sense?
    Boots with Dress? Hell naw!!

  66. Anya says:

    is this actually true cos neither reps for these stars has made a statement.
    people need to calm down everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
    if this is true then it was kinda harsh and shows a somewhat ugly mside to beyonces character

  67. katongo says:

    Beyonce is really childish if theta the case. Janet has been there done that. She been on top of the charts and back

  68. Jamie says:

    at the end of the day is beyonce lieing?

    but at the same time there has been no proof that this was definately said by beyonce, solange and janet etc…..
    we all know about media nowadays that change evry story

    maybe this was said…but not by beyonce??

    maybe beyonce did say this…but she didnt actually mention any names??
    the media cud hav just added the jacksons b’cuz dats who the assumed beyonce was on about

    NO ONE KNOWS!

  69. fans of all says:

    I DONT THINK DAT BEYONCE DIDNT MEAN 2 BE DISRESPECTFUL WHEN SHE SAID THAT AND THAT BEYONCE IS A GROWN LADY SHES IN HER 20S AND DAT SHE WAS TRYING 2 BE HONEST ABOUT HER LIFE NOT DISRESPECTFUL ABOUT.SHE JUST ONLY SAID THAT SHE DIDNT GO THROUGH WHAT THE JACKSONS WENT THROUGH WHEN SHE WAS THERE AGE. SHE DIDNT MEAN TO BE DISRESPECTFUL SHE WAS TELLING THE TRUTH SO WHY EVERY ONE GETTIN MAD AT HER FOR SAYING THAT SHE WAS BEING HONEST.SO JANET SHE DIDNT MEAN DAT.AND ALL THE PPL WHO IS MAKIN BAD COMMENTS BEYONCE WASNT BEING CHILDIS SHE WAS TELLING THE TRUTH.IM FANS OF JANET AND BEYONCE AND THATS ALL I GOT 2 SAY.

  71. elongish says:

    I don’t think the comment was enuf. It shd have included things like she doesn’t have a wardrope malfuncton or a terrible plastic surgery that would make generations of her family and fans embarrassed, shamed, erratic and so dawm angry.B is a decent example of true stardom and modesty. If Janet cannot be decent she should never interprete B’s modesty as “trying too hard to impress pple.”

  72. dlightful says:

    well this is exactly what white people want to hear. two beautiful black women fueding with each other. over words, haven’t we heard of sticks and stones, we was taught that in school.care less whats been said, just know your are on her mind for her to come out and mention your name.you don’t have to make a comment janet, just sit back and watch the show with bey. NOBODY PERFECT BEY. you will see, what in the dark come to light, just keep living.

  73. mc1ate1mad1cow says:

    Beyonce,YOU DIRTY b$$$h !!!!!!!

    You disgusting,disgusting s$$t.

    You and your sidey street girl band couldn’t even sell 1/10th what of Michael jackson did alone.

    You pathetic,useless,oily,smelly,a$s-fatter-than-jennifer lopez b$$$h,lay off.

    Just coz you hung out with Mariah Carey on the new year’s,doesn’t mean that you can take on the jacksons.

  74. mc1ate1mad1cow says:

    janet’s sold a well over 100 million records.

    Hag Beyonce sold 1/3rd of 50 million(from destiny’s)
    and some odd 20 million(records,not albums.)

    That’s like 40 million records…lets say 50..

    Still,she doesn’t even beat out Alicia Keys or even Paula Abdul(haha).

    Janet is the reason why black nobodys like beyonce can make it to the top.It’s all coz of janet.

    When u said,”Mariah carey’s voice comes from God.”
    you really didn’t mean it,b$$$h,did you.

    You just said it,expecting praise from the legend herself.

    When that didn’t work out,you devised a new tact.Blast Janet,another legend.You thot this wud make u more popular..but u have just remained that : gooey pile of jay-z crap.

  75. It'zSadSooSad says:

    Why mess with JJ? Aliyah passed and u came up. Mary J, Monica, Brandi, an’ Whitney slowed down to live life an’ u got a chance at da limelight. Rihanna came out a bit to late so u got Jay-Z. U step on ur group to get a soloist oppertunity in da industry. Look at how lucky u r never once havin’ to struggle to get what u want nor where u r today. Somethin’ to think about, huh? What if all da above had never occurred….People like Janet Jac, Michael Jac, Mary J, Lil Kim an’ others who had real skillz to get where they r would be feelin’ sorry fa u, givin’ advice an’ u’d be singin’ a different tune then (probaley somethin’ we would listen to an’ maybe somethin’ not stolen from someone elses hardship). Grow UP!!!

  76. lmfao says:

    OMGosh… everyone is so brutal!
    i wish that we as black people didn’t have these problems within ourselves.
    it is sad. whether it is true or not, this is our sad reality….
    we really need to stick together in times like this!

  77. Blaque Reign says:

    BEYONCE NEEDS TO GO SIT DOWN….SHE DOESN’T SEE IT RIGHT NOW…BUT ALL THIS SLANDERING AND BACKSTABBING THAT SHE IS DOING IS GOING TO BRING HER DOWN QUICKER THAN SHE EXPECTED……PPL ARE ALREADY STARTING TO DISLIKE HER BECAUSE THEY ARE STARTING TO SEE THE FAKENESS IN HER…..ITS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE MY BOY HOV BOUNCES ON HER….AND SHE WILL BE SITTING A LONE AND LONELY…..I AGREE WITH KERI HILSON…SHE NEED TO MOVE IT TO THE LEFT….

  78. Danielle says:

    To whomever the person was on this site that said Beyonce’s music gears women to be more arrogant… I have to say, I kind of agree. There’s just certain songs that have went far beyond giving women confidence, to being arrogant. Who likes an arrogant person. Jugding from the many comments made from people who have met Beyonce, she just this sweet little, humble piece of pie and that’s why so many people like her especially with all the success she’s had in life. she shouldhave a big time attitude but according tot hose people she doesn’t. Anyway, it’s always great to empower women because many of us need it, sometimes alittle arrogance is needed in life when dealing with the hardships, but when it’s too muuuch, too strooong,too biiiiig, and won’t fiiiit… that is just a little too much. I’m sure if Beyonce met somebody that had the effects of her music on them she wouldn’t know how to handle them because she such a humble little piece of pie.I like some of her songs though they are very catchy but after a while all that arrogance can get to your head. Too all the haters of Beyonce, you can continue to do so if you like, but here’s a suggestion, if you really want her sit down then uplift another female artist like, “Keri Hilson, Rihanna, Mariah Carey,Ciara, and maybe even Ashanti if you like, not me though.(LOL) Ashanti seems like a nice person but her talent isn’t big enough to hold it’s own in my opinion.

  79. Danielle says:

    I know this might be off the topic also about Beyonce and Janet but, I also think that Beyonce needs to go to acting classes. That is one thing that she can’t do. Acting didn’t come as a natural talent to her and I really believe that since solange is the one with the real attitude it’s not just an alter ego it’s her all day everyday it seems, that she could potentially be a good actress. She should try that rather than singing. It’s sad to say but not alot of people are really going to support solange I don’t think even though she’s kind of a breather of fresh air from Beyonce and all her little copy cats. Like I said before, I don’t hate Beyonce, I would like for her stay around, but I think it’s time for someone else to shine. Maybe she wouldn’t have some many haters if there was someone else to look to for great entertainment. Seriously though, Solange should go act and get that oscar that her sister is dying to get. This way she can have her own lane that Beyonce would have to catch up too for once. I don’t know how to reach the artist though, so if anyonw reading this knows how, please try and foward this message to solanges camp if you can or tell me how to do it. I think it’s a good idea, she should try it.

  80. Danielle says:

    Janet needs to go back to her Rythm n’ Nation days also. That’s when she was hot!

  81. sash says:

    i understand what she said but im pretty sure she didnt mean it how ppl are takin it…
    im pretty sure she isnt tryin to make herself seem better than janet either bcuz some of beyonce’s inspirations probably came from janet so y would she try and make herself seem superior to her?? …
    ppl always tryin to get stuff started out of nothin… and i dnt see what jay-z and him “cheating” on her has anything to do with the “freud”….
    im jus sayin =)

  82. Carma says:

    @ Danielle Did you seriously put Mariah in that catergory Beyonce or no Beyonce Mariah will always be hot!!! How come when Beyonce says things about people it’s always “oh she didn’t mean it like that”, “she is so sweet she will never diss anybody”, but I bet you if Janet said those things people will be attacking her like Beyonce is their sister!!! Just because someone may come off sweet in front of the cameras doesn’t mean they are really that way behind the scenes!!!! Beyonce knew she was wrong for saying that if it wasn’t for the Jackson she wouldn’t be here!!!!

    • Danielle says:

      I love Mariah and your right Carma Mariah will always be hot! What I meant by that statement though was for her to get more exposure on TV like Beyonce does! Mr. Knowles doesn’t even get Solange any commercial or publicity. You are right though I love Mariah but with all her talent it seems that nobody pays her enough attention. These days especially with Rihanna hiding out, it seems to be all about Beyonce. There are other artist such as Mariah to look too and I also agree that people protect Beyonce too much sometimes even if they have never met her. I’m not saying she evil or has a bad attitude but nobody can be nice all the time. We’re not God and even he gets upset.

      • melissa says:

        shut up please, B. needs to stop running her mouth just because she’s sitting on top. She’s for sure not the only DIVA, around. I wish she would watch what comes out of her mouth. And worry about that non singing sister of hers.

  83. nicole says:

    Beyonce that was so disrespectful to say about an entire family that paved the way for ur family to be succesful. and im sure there is not a female artist out today including you who has not tried to mirror JANET in one form or another. u obviosly did not think that lame comment through girl!

  84. Fierceness! says:

    Sorry…but Beyonce needs to go sit her tired a$s down! Her mother and father are both “slave driving her a$s”! Please don’t hate on Janet. Beyonce should know better than to make any kind of remark..especially when dealing with class! Beyonce is ghetto as hell!Grow the F#$k up! God can give it..and he can take it away!

  85. BEAST says:

    I AGREE THAT PPL LIKE BEYONCE ARE WAAAAY TO OVER EXPOSED. ITS LIKE THEY FORGOT ALL ABOUT MARIAH AND WHITNEY. IF IT WSNT FOR MARIAH, THERE WOULD BE NO R&B SONGS GOING TO #1. E=MC2 WAS A GREAT ALBUM BUT WAS OVERSHADOWED WHEN I AM…SASHA FIERCE CAME OUT. WHEN THIS NEW MARIAH ALBUM COMES OUT I HOPE SHE BLOWS BEYONCE OUTTA THE WATER!!!!!!

  86. mario says:

    JANET JACKSON IS THE QUEEN OF POP!! BEYONCE IS A JEALOUS NUTCRACKER!
    JANET HAS MORE FAME & FORTUNE, MORE FANS, BETTER MUSIC basically everything Beyonce doesn’t and wished she had.
    This so called Feud between both is just envy on Beyonce’s part.
    JANET JACKSON IS HOT! AND WILL ALWAYS BE! no matter what any little pancy says.
    Keep the music coming and moves rocking girl, love you and can’t wait for your next album/tour.
    JANET JACKSON ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • andrew khanye says:

      • Corey says:

        U tell me what Beyonce has done that Michael Jackson hasn’t? Not a damn thing ….now your just getting carried away!

        • Danielle says:

          I also have to say to that I was some what offended when Bounce said that about Micheal Jackson. Micheal Jackson has made his mark and no matter what anyone else dose he will always be the best at what he did.You know I would surprised to find a Micheal Jackson hater, not that I’m calling Bounce one and I’m not. It’s just a thought. I think everyone loves Micheal Jackson, don’t they? Sorry to get off topic.

        R U DRUNK! MICHEAL JACKSON IS THE REASON WHY BLACK ARTIST ARE PLAYED ON MTV AND ARE EVEN ABLE TO ACHIEVE THE SUCCESS THAT THEY ENJOY TODAY. MICHEAL JACKSON HAS THE HIGHEST SELLING ALBUM OF ALL TIME…EVER! MICHEAL JACKSON VIDEOS ARE ON A SCALE THAT BEYONCE CAN ONLY DREAM OF. GIVE RESPECT WHERE IT IS DUE. JANET AND MICHEAL ARE MUSIC ICONS THAT WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY. BEYONCE IS ONE ALBUM AWAY FROM BEING FORGOTTEN. GET REAL!

      • Monique says:

        What? Did you say that Beyonce has accomplished things that(dat)Michael Jackson hasn’t yet accomplished? Are you really serious? You must be really, really young or you grew up under a rock somewhere on the moon. Get real sweetie, there would be no Beyonce if Michael Jackson and the Jackson family had not paved the way. Beyonce’s tired a$s videos wouldn’t even be able to be played on Mtv, Vh1, etc if not for Michael Jackson breaking that barrier. It’s ok to have an opinion and to like Beyonce but please don’t get it twisted and start telling lies, because Beyonce’ accomplishments have not and probably will never touch the accomplishments of Michael Jackson. Beyonce is mostly loved and known for having a body but she has very little substance. Beyonce’s music and cd’s can’t touch Michael Jackson. First she isn’t talking about anything positive in her songs, whether its her as herself or Sasha Fierce. So miss Bounce please take time to rethink your comment. LMAO. You can’t possibly be serious!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Uhh…Bounce…your beloved Beyonce does nothing more than copy Michael Jackson as well as others. Nothing innovative and really creative about her and I like her & think she has talent but lets not get it twisted and let’s PLEASE stay with reality.
        Just a few examples of her copying MJ:

      • Angie says:

        What the F***ck are u smokin stupid

    • tim says:

      I believe that Beyonce was wrong for saying that about the Jackson family, but the fact of the matter is that it’s 100% true! in case your memory needs refreshing…just watch the Jackson 5 movie again! We all know how Joe forced those kids into performing “initially!” Now, I’m glad that he did it but that still does not negate the fact that everything Beyonce said was true!

      • Monique says:

        Ok that may be true but as an artist who has risen on the backs of the barriers that the Jackson family broke down she should have had enough tact and respect not to have used the Jackson family as an example to prove how good she supposedly had it growing up. Her statement was so unnecessary and very unprofessional from one entertainer to another. In this world and especially in that business you never know who you may need or who you may run into in that circle. There is a time and a place to speak the truth and that was not it. I mean that’s all the media wants us to do anyway, is to tear each others accomplishments down so that they can start a fued with one black artist against another. Haven’t Michael and the Jackson family been ridiculed enough over the years and for Beyonce to say what she said only adds fuel to the fire. I was really surprised, I had thought better of her before this incident.

    • TRE says:

      YOU PEOPLE ALWAYS HATING ON BEY…. SHE SAY’S WHATS SHE FEELS… DONT HATE.. I LOVE BOTH OF THEM…..

    • Defender says:

      Beyonce is the highest paid female entertainer, has more fans than played out Janet, and actually HAS a vocal range. Beyonce said this in defense of her father being compared to abusive/jackass Joe Jackson.

  87. andrew khanye says:

    honestly from a guy from south africa i believe that beyonce went out of line and really needs to apologise. her being in the music industry for a couple of doesnt mean that she’s matured into an idol to all. Beyonce is icon to the young and the young at heart but janets fans have grown with her from since i dont knw. it will only become a mess for beyonce if she doesnt apologise, yes the kids will back her up but those mature enough to realise will not only drop her but she will loose. she should be making an icon of janet especially seeing how far her family has come. Beyonce this comes from a 25yr old.

    GROW UP……

    BEYONCE U CANT WIN THIS..

  88. chick_tabu says:

    When Dream Girls came out an interviewer asked Beyonce how did she feel about Jennifer Hudson winning a grammy or getting the lead part (or something, 4 got now) but Beyonce responded back w/ something meaning she above Hudson saying she’s a SUPER STAR already so it really didnt matter to her. Now she says this c(rap)..to me Beyonce is actually insecure and says these types of things to give a boost to her low morale, I mean look who she married, good gawd. Jay Z is no better trying to bring another brutha down (Chris Brown) & reppin a chesse eater. Man Brown is young enuff to be his son! Those 2 Jay Z & Beyonce is going to come crashing down one day cuz they fly 2 high. And I always thought B’s father did use her, he even quit his job relying on her carrer to get them a notch higher

    • Defender says:

      He quit his job out of support and Beyonce told the truth. Joe Jackson used his kids, because they were poor and he abused and forced them. Matthew Knowles didn’t have to force Beyonce; he just supported her. Beyonce has no reason to be insecure and if she said that to Jennifer that is also true. Jennifer hasn’t even gone platinum and had a moment of fame because people felt sympathy for her losing her family. Chris Brown deserves no pity for attacking and biting a female. Do you not care about battered women?

  89. Danielle says:

    I have to kind of disagree with you about Jay-Z coming down on the Chris Brown part. Jay-Z was just taking up for Rihanna and his belief in not putting your hands on women. I also think that Matthew Knowles quit his job to help Beyonce Pursue her dreams. From their family story that seems to be told over and over and over again until I just can’t take listening to no more, her father was in real estate and they were upper middle class so the family didn’t need Beyonce talent to make money they already had it. How ever Jay-Z and Beyonce do fly high like you said and yes the could go bankrupted like Mc Hammer. That would be a story for sure! I just think she’s really doesn’t know any better when it comes to certain things. Yes she is an adult and should know how to sensor herself but I guess that’s just something she lacks and needs to work on.

    • Rhonda says:

      Please… Jay-Z is just as guilty as Chris Brown. True he didn’t go UFC on the woman and leave scars, but he has put his hands on a woman and has many rumors circulating that he puts his hands on Beyonce. I’m sick of both of them. It’s almost as if they feel the world has to conform to everything they do and say and they’re stans don’t make it any better. I give credit when it’s due so Beyonce has talent yes, but I do think she’s overrated and burnt. Her reign is over and she’s never going to have the career of Janet Jackson. I just feel she’s one CD from being “forgotten” and Jay-Z should have never tried to come back into the picture. Go make some babies, let someone else shine.

  90. jojo says:

    They were regular middle class yes! not upwardly mobile… if that was the case he would not have had to quit his job to help beyonce pursue her dream.

    Joe Jackson supported his family with a more modest job, than matthew, so what!!!

    music was their dream as well!

    Beyonce was just wrong in her assumptions, and commentary on music royality (and that’s what the Jackson are!).

    She and her sister need to shut up, and only comment when their handlers give them a script.

    They are both so ignorant, and it shows!!!

    Bottom line, none of Joe’s kids got knocked up @ 15(solange), and they all have always be well spoken(beyonce)…. how “upper class” are you again???

    Jokes

  91. jojo says:

    oops! been…

  92. Lashuan says:

    awwe im a fan of both beyonce and janet but i think beyonce was out of line that was a really nasty thing to say and good on janet not for lashing back with an even meaner comment cause thas what i wouldve done , in the end beyonce just looks silly and like a bit of a “bragger”

  93. Lashuan says:

    thats totally something an average “upperclass” person would say .

    I’m a fan of both and however I’m more of a fan of Beyonce and I don’t feel she was out line. She voiced how she felt. I’m more a Beyonce fan and yes Janet’s career have with stood time but I feel Beyonce is stronger vocally and holds her own as well.

    As far as comparing the families they are similar and different in aspects but her staement isn’t out of line.

    • bounce says:

      i agree 2 da fullest

      • Monique says:

        Oh please, you would agree with this. You who said that Beyonce has accomplished more than Michael Jackson. I’d say you’re not an authority on anything but bad judgement and misstatements. Be a fan of Beyonce but that does not require that you down a family who is a staple in the music industry.

        • tiffany says:

          The problem with people and when they are big stars they should just keep their opinion to themselves about other artist especially those that have been in the game longer. People don’t always have to agree but they do need to respect and I don’t think it matters wheather people came from having money or being poor just that they have talent and truely love doing what they do. Don’t get me wrong I love beyonce but she needs to think abuout what she says before she says it and also get off her high horse. Even though she is a star she is no better than any other person in this world.

    • Corey says:

      The statement was out of line…. who is she to call someone gutter…. I mean really she can’t even complete a sentence with out stubbling….Upper Middle Class children usually has private school educations and learn to sustain themselves…. clear that isn’t the case with Beyonce…..

      And to be honest… Upper Middle Class in Houston, TX is just barely Middle Class in any other major metro area in the country…. I have looked at homes in Sugar Loaf (an Upper Class neighborhood in Houston, TX) and for what I paid for my 1 bedroom condo in Alexandria, VA (Washington DC metro area) I could purchase a 5 bedroom home with 2 acres in Houston. Clearly Beyonce thinks she came from more than she really came from. The money she has today doesn’t even rival Upper Eastside New York family’s….

      This is a clear case of Nouveau riche…..french for “NEW MONEY”……

      • LadieN says:

        True, true. I live in DC and could buy 4 houses with pools and crap in TX for what the mortgage on my single family home costs. She defiantly didn’t grow up in the upper class. But of course she thinks she came from more than what she did she had no life as a child beyond the walls of her home. I mean she’s even boasting about her dad driving a Jag. So what, my dad drives a Porsche. So do I get the right to be an arrogant beeatch? She is completely clueless.

        And just look at her parents and they way they exploit their child- her father/manager encourages her dancing aroung half naked on stage, giving lap dances and always grabbing her a$s & gyrating in videos. She need not talk about ANYONE else’s family.

        Dumb broad….

  95. jojo says:

    ali u are missing the point this post has nothing to do with who you feel is the better performer. Beyonce has no right to critizie others, about socail or financial status, it was rude , and ignorant….

    if u and bounce can’t understand that then, it just show’s that you two are just as ignorant.

    • Monique says:

      Kudos, kudos. That’s exactly how I feel. It’s not a comparison. It’s a matter of knowing when and what to say. Hell Janet has been where Beyonce is trying to go, acting, movies, grammys, etc. she needs to be trying to sit down and have a word with Janet to see how to sustain her career.

  96. Nellyon says:

    Y ‘all not talkin right,beyonce is better than janet,gawd! she aint a b$$$h like janet,janet could strips 4 all she care,beyonce is not involved in any scandal.

    • Monique says:

      Beyonce is better that Janet how? Actually I see more simularities than differences. Janet started out singing with her brother, Beyonce started out singing with a group. Janet started acting at an early age and continued acting. Beyonce has now gotten into acting. And they bother have great accomplishments in the music industry. Why does it have to be a comparison or one or the other. We’re not talking about whose music you would buy first, we’re talking about the lack of tact and respect on Beyonce’s part. Point blank, even if she was thinking it she did not have to let it come out of her mouth. There is always more that one way to get a point across and you do not have to tear someone elses family down to make yours look good. Everyone has an idea of the Jackson family history, but its just that history. So why did Beyonce feel the need to bring it up in an interview? That’s what we as a people have been doing to one another since forever, tearing one another down. And the media just loves it.

  97. Chlo says:

    Beyonce needs to grow up! in this day and age there is a lot of competition within the music/movie industry and jealousy doesn’t get you far. Don’t get me wrong Beyonce is a great performer and i love her for that. She has done well to get to where she is and has accomplished a fare share but as a person i don’t think she deserves it. As for being a “icon” I hardly think Beyonce deserves that title, jealousy and greed – is that what we want our children to mirror! i don’t think so. As you see music artist and actresses come and go and only the ones who truly deserve it will persevere like the real Diva Janet Jackson, shes still going strong and we all love her! as a performer and a person.

    Janet all the way :)

    OKAY YOU DAYUM IDIOT.z…. THIS IS ALL BULL SHIz! DONT BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ.. ALL THIS CRAP IS NONSENSE AND PEOPLE NEED TA STOP ALL THESE RUMORS

  100. LadieN says:

    You tell it like it is! UR 3rd paragraph is right on point….Beyonce needs to check herself.

  101. A says:

    Beyonce is beautiful and talented. However, she is not the brightest. Without a script, she has difficulty not presenting herself without coming across as mean spirited. She should really wait on her PR team before she speaks. She probably can’t figure out that what she said was wrong.

  102. Butterfly says:

    Well know, everything tht Beyonce put out does not go platimun, this last album was awful, do your research first…

  103. Butterfly says:

    I agree Chlo..I need not say anymore..However, I watched re runs of Punk’d with Ashton and the real Beyonce came out…She is so fake and that humble mess she trys to portray is just that mess, she needs to get lessons from Janet and Alicia women with class, with her graspy voice, her and her funny looking sister. All I can say is people all on Beyonce and for what, all she do is jump around, do some real dancing like Janet and or Michael. And I bet she never mentioned her father had a drug habbit and cheated terrible on her mother…If you wanna put people busimess out there and make negative comments start at home “BEYONCE”

  104. Malikah says:

    I disagree Beyonce has not done more than Michael although I love Beyonce. She however is a bigger star than Janet. And when the hell did Janet become queen of Pop? Yeah right! Let’s not use pity over her loss to boost her up on her class level.

  105. W says:

    Michael Jackson’s dad abused Michael. He practically beat him into stardom. As a consequence, Michael became a deranged, baby-dangling pedophile who is now dead because of an unhappy and unhealthy lifestyle that may very well have stemmed from his troubled youth.

    So yeah, I can see why Beyonce doesn’t want her family and upbringing compared to the Jacksons’. Furthermore, I think Beyonce sings and looks a lot better than Janet, but that’s a matter of personal taste.

    • J says:

      Well said

    • kelly says:

      ummm no michael was not a pedophile so you get yourself checked out. really get your

    • Nina says:

      Wow, you are just ignorant. Michael was NOT a pedophile, he was acquitted by a jury of 12 in 2005 on 14 counts of various bogus charges.

      A mind is a terrible thing to waste, why don’t you do some research instead of listening to a media that never bothered to tell the truth of what really happened in 1993 OR in the courtroom in 2005. In fact, the MSM had 2000 reporters from around the world covering the trial and only a handful actually reported on what a farce the charges were and what a bunch of grifters the family was. Nor did they bother to cover why he was acquitted after the fact – that would mean acknowledging they had been lying and making cr*p up during the trial, salivating at all the money they were going to make off the cottage business of a convicted Michael Jackson. They had egg on their faces AND they were disappointed.
      There is a reason a CONSERVATIVE JURY with no Blacks on it (only one alternate) acquitted Michael Jackson.
      There was no case.

      As far as the real discussion, Beyonce has said this on more than one occasion and she is not telling the truth about her background. She is right about one thing, her family IS nothing like the Jacksons who are music industry royalty and always will be. They paved the way for many including her. Beyonce is not a ground breaker and she has taken may cues from both Janet and especially MJ by her own admission. She is not an innovator IMO although I do think she is talented.

      Both she and her dad have been taking lessons from the Jackson family and they would be lying if they denied it…Mr Knowles is really no different than Mr Jackson and Beyonce needs to learn not only how to speak but to think before she speaks. I like her but she can’t hold a candle to either MJ or Janet.

  106. kim says:

    beyonce has truly letted sasha fierce get into her head a little too deep into her head, people was starting to let this comment slide off… until the music maker died and took it with him and now … this is going to bit her in her butt so far she’s gonna have to apoligize for what she said because she knows that janet is not having it beyonce just thinks she cane cget away with anything because shes married to jayz but hello do she know that jayz cant stop beyonce from getting her a$s beat its gon come to terms that the queen of pop herself is gon slap her ego in line.

  107. jojo says:

    for the record janet is the queen of pop! beyonce is the queen of bad hairr weaves and ghetto-mite music! long live queen Janet! :)

  108. KELLY says:

    OLD a$s?? JANET LOOKS GOOD AND DOESN’T LIE ABOUT HER AGE. IF BEYONCE IS REALLY 27 IS LOOKS OLD AS HELL. LOOK @ JANET MOTHER WHO IS DAMN NEAR 80 N LOOK @ BEYONCE’S MOM SHE LOOKS WORN OUT, WALKED ON, AND DRUGGED. JANET IS 42 AND LOOKS GOOD BYONCE IS SO CALLED 27 AND LOOKS 42 . WACK WIG AND SHE WANTS TO BE SOMETHING THAT SHE’S NOT WHITE, BALLHEADED SCANK

  109. taylor says:

    when janet was hot and still is hottt.. beyonce wasnt even thought of soo how could she say that she is like the jacksons? how can she put herself in that in that class? she aint had it hard her dad had a nice car and house in the surburbs in houston tx she got nerve.

    REAL ACCOMPLISHMENT IS WHEN YOU GO FROM GRASS TO GRACE!
    REAL ACCOMPLISHMENT IN MUSIC IS WHEN YOUR MUSIC NEVER DIES!(TRUE DEFINITION OF MJ)

    RIP MJ_- YOU WILL LIVE FOREVER

  113. christina says:

    the jacksons have made bigger and better things that beyonce… they are iconic!!!! beyonce an NEVER compare michael and janet!!! they went from nothing to everything… michael jackson is known all around the world…that is something beyonce will NEVER EVER experience!!! all she does is copy and still nothing of hers is original she is always copying or stealing!!! once she can make her own music WITHOUT taking taking something from somebody else she CAN’T and NEVER will top the jacksons!!!Everything that the jacksons did were original and NOT taken from anybody like her!!!she needs to check herself before she says anything!!!!the jacksons are the foundation of her career!!!beyonce can never live up to the jacksons!!! she is so wrong for sying that coment!!!at least they came from nothing to something!!!she doesnt even deserve to be called an artist everybody writes her songs!!!she can never top them in her wildest dreams… she needs to chill out and calm her nerves!!! the are way bigger and better… they will always be bigger and better than her!!! i do not know what she was thinking when she said that!!!it doesnt matter where they came from it matters what they have become!!!

  114. jojo says:

    thank u andre, i completely agree. research, is something that seem to come very hard(like so many things!) to beyonce, and her many stupid supporters!

    meanwhile, who’s a$s did she kiss @ the BET awards Micheal’s(postumously), Joe, and Janet’s!

    Let’s not forget, her and destiny’s child’s “let wait awhile” remake, at the 1st MTV ICON awards to, honor Janet!

    Beyonce is such a fool, and look how she bites the hand that feeds her to this day with inspiration!

    All you beyonce supporters (and beyonce herself!), will be confused, about a word like postumously……..

    I suggest that the two just mentioned, you get a dictionary. I know big words are hard for you chickens!

    check your neck!
    Have a nice day! :)

  115. NEOSOULSIS says:

    Unfortunately BEY u would not be where u r if it wasn’t for MS JACKSON if ur NASTY! I think sometimes we need to think quickly but speak methodically so we don’t get ourselves into a tongue battle with our elders! Janet is classy, beautiful, well spoken, and of course she represents the most beautiful women in the world (African American). Oh yeah, Solange please come to no one’s defense you are a (STATISTIC) real affluent black families we teach our kids about how to not get pregnant out of wedlock. All the money in the world and you still couldn’t get that listen.

    Janet,
    I got ur back! PEACE

  116. c dawg says:

    Beyonce needs to shut her f****n mouth! I’m not a big fan of Janet’s music but I admire her for where she’s at, DISPITE where she came from! I thought Beyonce was more humble than that…:( what a snobby thing to say!!! not sure I want to go to her concert now…this is why they should learn to keep there opinions to themselves and stick to Entertaining!!!

  117. Zahara says:

    Wow did not think that this was the type of person Beyonce was.

    With time i think the world will truly see her for who she is.

    One moment she is making stupid comments like this and then trying to draw attention to herself by giving MJ tributes.

    Beyonce has no talent compared to the Jacksons.

    Hope she apologizes so she does not seem like a complete and utter idiot

  118. janny says:

    Lets get something straight ther will NEVER be someone that will accomplish the things that Michael did!!!!!!!!!!

  119. Jessie says:

    Kay, I just think that she isn’t saying she’s better but that her family is not like the Jackson family(clearly). She never once in that statement said that she is better than Janet. We all know that the Jackson kids didn’t have much say in things and that’s what she said. Granted, she shouldn’t have said it and specially not in that way but some people are taking it a bit far than what it should be. Clearly, her private education wasn’t good enough to teach her manners or how things should be said but that’s something she has to learn on her own. Let’s face it, the woman has a huge ego and it sometimes gets in the way and doesn’t let her think things through. She looked up to Michael Jackson, as she says she did, and many did; after all the man is a legend, may he rest in peace. However, I disagree with the comments on how Janet is the queen of pop, yes her music did great and she’s been in the business for a very long time but let’s not forget who her brother was and helped her be where she is today. And this is just another problem caused by the media, trying to compare one to the other just to see where things go with from there. Beyonce should have just taken like a compliment; because truly if my family were compared to a family like the Jackson family I’d be pretty happy for they have achieved such success; and left her comment to herself, would’ve saved her from this situation. Let’s hope she learns from this.

  120. Gabrielle says:

    Sasha has taken over

  121. Truth says:

    And there it is folks, she is doing her fake a$s tributes and wasnt invited to the memorial service or funeral! I love the Jackson’s for keeping it real! And for the idiot at the top of this page that said that Beyonce did as much as Michael, please let me know when the selfish b$$$h donates $500 million to charity! I guess I will never hear from you because it will never happen. Media whore is trying to use MJ’s death as a means to make herself come off as a decent person, but we know the truth and being shut out of his memorial says a lot! You go Janet!!

    RIP Michael. <3

  122. wayne says:

    yea whateva we all have different thing on our mind but beyonce met what she say and janet met whateva she it jus goin to be a big feud jus get over it

  123. Veta Marie says:

    Can anyone find me the video where Beyonce hit the steps on her backside. Wow, good thing she never had to audition for Michael or Janet before she was discovered. They are perfectionists when it comes to putting on shows, she would have never made the cut. Thus, Ms. “B” would have been still working back home in TX with Mama in the sweatshop.

  124. CD n 3D says:

    Which came 1st and gave hope/birth to the other? This is like the chicken and/or the egg argument. Most of the entries here are based on biased opinions but one truth I can certainly share here is that you will NEVER hear Janet Jackson doing a Beyonce song but you can bet your bottom dollar you may just hear Beyonce remaking (or butchering) someone else’s previous musical work. Imitation is the highest form of flattery. Let’s keep it real. Choose sides if you must but record sales and (tour) revenues say it all. This has been a ” CD n 3D reality moment .” thanks for letting me say my piece… Now… PEACE!!
    P.S. Janet put “booty” on the map before Beyonce knew it was her (handed down) duty. Need I say more?? :-p

  125. Monique says:

    Ok Beyonce is what 27 and Janet is 43? Lets just hope your precious Beyonce can maintain her career as well and as long as Janet has. Janet is far more classy and much more articulate that Beyonce could ever hope to be. That one think that all the Jackson’s had in common, they can hold an articulate conversation. What did Matthew and her mother teach her? And best to believe that no one is offering Beyonce $80 million to sign with there record company like Virgin records did to get janet to resign with them. Oh and 5 yrs earlier they paid her $32 million. Please, Beyonce is the hottest and latest naked as chick on the scene. She’ll be burned out by the time she reaches 43, believe that.

    • Defender says:

      Beyonce mad that comment in defense of her father, just so you know. Anyway, Beyonce has accomplished WAY more than Janet with a much shorter career. Is Janet the second Black woman to grace the Sports Illustrated magazine? Did it take Beyonce (group or solo) her THIRD album to FINALLY have a hit like Janet had taken? Is Janet a winner of the Songwriter of the Year Award, in which Beyonce is the first A.A. to earn? Beyonce has sold more albums in a shorter period in comparison to Janet’s long career. Beyonce is a moghul in the eyes of many. Janet acted in trashy movies in the start of her televised career (ie. Justice) and shows her skin way too much. She is not as classy or well dressed as Beyonce is famed to be.

  126. theonevoice says:

    well. I understand why janet is offended. But, what Beyonce said was true. Joe Jackson used his kids. ANd all of you need to wake up. Beyonce has NOT outdone Michael Jackson in anyway. Check the records. He’s sold 10 times as many records. And Janet ain’t the Queen of Pop. Madonn rightrully carries that title. I don’t think Beyonce was jealous. I think she was just making a distinction. But like I said before, it was a bit insensative.

  127. Perry says:

    I totally agree with most of you that Beyonce was in the wrong for saying what she said the way she said it, but I think it has been clear that Joe Jackson used his kids especially Michael and made them follow the music career he never had. The one thing I dislike is that Janet Jackson acts like a real diva and whenever she does make an appearance, you can see she doesn’t really want to be doing what she’s doing… I think this is so stupid, people should only take a offense to things that are really true, if Janet knew it wasn’t true she would brush Beyonce’s comment off as one from a hater.

  128. JUSanothr1 says:

    beyonce and janet r both very talented. & both of them have 2 much class 2 let this “beef” go any further. however talking 2 all of u bias fans out there janet has accomplished way more than B. howevey beyonce does have a bright future still ahead of her. regaurdless of who u love more or think is more talented, check the stats. B said her part and J said hers. & thts where it ends.

    p.s. “parents??” Katherine Jackson had nothing 2 do with this only Joe

  129. indamix says:

    ….by the way, exactly how many Grammys has Beyonce won? How do y’all determine that she has more fans than Janet?
    How relevant will Beyonce be compared to the “diva of the day” 20 years from now? Beyonce’s rise to fame in the millenium era cannot compare to the Jackson family’s remarkable rise to fame beginning in the 1960′s!

  130. mc1ate1mad1cow says:

    beyonce and her father should go to hell.

    FREAKS FREAKS FREAKS !!!

    disgusting !! yuck,I feel like puking on her face.She can’t even sing.

    Banshee screaming b$$$h.She thinks she can take on Janet Jack ::: h$e,go and die and make some fugly camel babies before you do.

    and,rot in hell,Solange,leech.Whore.

  131. Janie says:

    Everybody calm down!!! SHheeesh!!! Look, you don’t ghave to take sides, let Janet and Bey work it out. They’r eboth beautiful people and I’m sure Bey didn’t mean to hurt Janet or her family. Bey’s concerned about how the Jackson parents pushed their children into showbiz (as much as we love MJ, and appreciate him, he had issues with fame/showbiz), and that she chose showbiz, it wasn’t forced upon her.

    She has said several times that SHE’S A HUGE MJ fan. As far as Janet, I understand why SHE’s hurt also. Let them work it out! I’m sure they love each other and Bey didn’t mean to cause harm b/c if you really undersand B, she’s a POSITIVE PERSON and well-MEANING.

    Remember, she wasn’t dissing the Jacksons, she was making a point about how the parents put the act together. [Hey, yes, she was being judgmental and I wouldn’t have said it – publicly, at least. Yeah probably she was wrong b/c bottom line, they achieved the virtually unachievable, they got their kids out of the G.H.E.T.T.O.!! So, hey, there are pros and cons.

    Butit doesn’t mean Bey is evil, we all say things that we regret. Doesn’t mean Janet isevil, she’s truly upset and hurt. They’ll work it out, they’re both our sisters and we love them both dernit!!!!@@#!#$%

  132. wendy says:

    Most of yall are real stupid or cant read 4 shyt!!
    Beyonce basically said:;
    “I grew up upper class. Private school.” “My dad had a Jaguar. We’re African-American and we work together as a family, so people assume we’re like the Jacksons, but I didn’t have parents using me to get out of a bad situation.”

    Translation!!
    she had money growing up and wanted to do music as a passion since she was singing and dancing at a young age and was something she really want it to do.

    The Jackson’s were more like pushed to do this!
    and janet had said before that singing wasn’t her choice of career and that their FATHER PUSHED THEM TO BE RICH AND FAMOSE!!!

    Beyonce parents didnt need any money but the jacksons did ….like hello their a total of 9 KIDS IN TOTAL thats why joe jackson wanted to use his kids to produce money!!

    Beyonce wasnt talking bout anything about out doing Michael Jackson or Janet Jackson in anyway. She just said this statement in a bad way.

    COMMON SENCE

  133. kim says:

    Ok clearly everyone on this blog is under the age of 20 because there is no way that anyone older could be so ignorant. First of all let’s be oerfectly clear, without the Jacksons there would be no Beyonce. Next, who in the world would dare to compare Beyonce and Janet? Janet is a classy lady, with a career that spans decades, next to Michael, Janet is the only other black artist, to sell out arenas in moscow, china, japan and london, she is a trailblazer, because of Janet and Michael these younger artist can put on big stage shows and the likes, these two are pioneers, janet had e HBO concert specials, her concerts were masterpiece. When history is written beyonce will be a blurb, janet will be a chapter and we haven’t even talked about her humanatarian efforts. Beyonce is a selfish, illiterate, cry baby and every time she opens her ignorant ghetto mouth it shows. Beyonce cannot touch the genuine, talented likes of Janet and Alicia Keyes and JHud, she is phony. You can look at these ladies and see a genuine love for others. When she put some clothes on and stip shaking her big nast behind and sit down on a stool and sing a song without 50 million runs in it, then she may be able to get my respect, other than that, she is a here today gone tommorrow. By the way children, please do your research before commenting. Beyonce is nowhere near janet in awards, or album sales. And she should not talk about the Jackson kids being used when her father continues to pimp her using her half naked body in whatever she does, he is a true pimp and he continues to prostitute her every chance he gets.

    • Hello says:

      i agree with you 150%. I always knew this girl was a b$$$h and i thought no body could see it but me. Telling me a was a hater and i was jealous of beyonce. Jealous of this foolish girl? You know what im jealous of? the fact that i couldn’t be the one to make a album like thriller. Those are the type of people that im jealous of not this stupid ignorant girl. I mean, how disrespectful. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinions and if beyonce thinks this about the Jacksons that is her problem, but to go out and say it. Just pure disrespectful. She always has to prove that shes better than someone in some way. This girl has a complex, that’s all. By the way, im under 20 :).

    The media really know how to get you people going. Why would Beyonce need to talk about Janet or any other? She is doing very well for her self, Jay Z and Beyonce has billions, why would she waste her time? Come on people stop falling for this stuff.

  137. cheyenne the baby says:

    beyonce need to sit her fake a$s down she can’t touch janet janet was making billions of dollars even before beyonce was every know of and her big a$s lip and nose husband jay-z need to do like michael and get a nose and lip job. beyonce need to do something about tha fake as weave in her head and as for her sister solange the no singing none talent s$$t need to go find her a baby dad. the knowels family used the other girls kelly and michell to help b get to where she is at now and b know dam well she anit in love with jay-z ibet she will not have any of his little ugly babys.

  138. Josh says:

    Kim–no, Beyonce is her own artist. It’s so silly to say without the Beatles, without Elvis, without Michael, without Madonna, there would be no Roxy Music, Mick Jagger, Usher, Britney or whomever. Beyonce’s style actually resembles Madonna’s at least as much as Janet Jackson, who never changed her style once. Her original formula was so winning though that her career flourished in spite of nearly no reinvention.

    Beyonce, on the other hand, is fiercely bold in changing her style and a far, far, FAR better singer. I mean check out the stylistic changes of “Crazy in Love,” “Ring the Alarm,” “If I Were a Boy,” and “Single Ladies.” So just because Janet Jackson came first doesn’t mean she’s better. In fact, Jackson is arguably not as good as Beyonce and I’m sure Beyonce’s style would have been very much in tact without Janet Jackson.

    By the way, Beyonce’s comment is much ado about nothing. She just contrasted her family with the Jackson’s, it wasn’t particularly mean-spirited. It’s so stupid how people can’t say anything these days.

    • kim says:

      Josh, I feel sorry for you, if you think that what Beyonce does is somehow revolutionary, you should check your music history. Beyonce is a Tina Turner want to be. Taking a song and screaming and then hitting runs all through the song is not original at all. Beyonce needs to check herself plain and simple, she has no humble to her and that is a recipe for a short career. 40 years from now when you say Janet Jackson and Michael Jackson, people will remember their music, you say beyonce, the question will be who? She is just on top until the next new thing comes along. No staying power. Sorry to let you know.

        i am from Africa, Kenya, I have always had a feeling that the Knowles family are users, they used and dumped the other Destiny’s child. while I have all the respect for Beyonce,there is no way i could possibly even try to compare her with Janet. Janet has one of the sweetest and rarest voices in the music industry. Any one can scream and shout like Beyonce.am 25, but you just need to listen to Janet’s That’s the way love goes and compare it to Beyonces single ladies, be the judge.

    • Hello says:

      Janet is better. plain and simple.Ask anybody and they will say Janet is better. If they say beyonce it’s probably because they are ghetto, ignorant, over-patriotic,disrespectful, tasteless, talent-less people just like beyonce. Should i even be wasting my time replying to you because you just compared beyonce to Madonna… That proves how much you know about music. And when Kim said there would be no beyonce without Janet, she meant it in terms of nobody would be listening to black music! Before michael and janet came around no one listened to Motown apart from black people. Beyonce gets to be a world-wide name because of people like janet who paved the way for her fame. That’s the only reason why shes given a chance. So maybe you should use your brain when serious topics come up and stop talking crap.

  139. fabolous says:

    Hopefully she didn`t say that but if she did say that then that is surprising to me. Beyonce will always be my favorite singer in the whole entire world.

    I think Janet is on top of beyonce and without Janet there will be no beyonce so if beyonce said that she can be quiet if she ddnt say that I’m still her number 1 fan. But I love the both of them and I doubt beyonce said that

  146. Lindu says:

    Let me just say for Josh who said Beyonce has a style of her own if you look at her MTV Awards 2006 performance that breakdance she did on there was all Janet and Michel and the whole glove thing she did in her Single Ladies video was all Michael just different type of glove please the whole Knowles fam is inspired by the Jacksons that’s why her Dad had Beyonce singing to their songs which is why I am so shocked she would do something like this just because Beyonce is hot now we don’t know what it will be like for her in the future Janet and Michael have been out for so long and people still are tyring to be like them and look up to them they are TRUE legends and icons I don’t want to be hard on Beyonce, but she needs to show respect !!!! Beyonce is doing all these tributes to Michael at her concert so she needs to show respect for them !!!!

  147. India says:

    The whole point of Janet not changing her style is because that’s who she is just like Michael hasn’t changed his style he still rocked the glove, the leather jacket, etc people know him like that it’s his own stlye!!!! Beyonce doesn’t really have her own style like MJ and Janet do half of Byeonce’s style is something Diana Ross, Tina Turner, or others have already wore!!! And nobody is saying just because Janet came out before Beyonce it means she is better if that’s the case you mind as well say that just because Beyonce was out before Rihannna, Jasmine Sullivan, Chrisette Michelle or others doesn’t mean she is better Janet doesn’t even have to release another album and people still love her that’s why Beyonce keeps on releasing albums every year because that is what got her in the limelight in the first place and why she sold so many records!!!! Jnaet and MJ don’t have to do that they will ALWAYS be LEGENDS and ICONS!!!!!!!!

    Even someone with sawdust for a brain will be more respectful. Beyonce have really lost a lot of my respect if she ever said what was reported. Did she say she went to a private school. It seems manners was not part of the instruction.

  150. TeamJanet says:

    Well I am glad everyone saw Beyonce for the TRUE fake diva that she is! Sasha Fierce a stage persona???…yeah right! She is SASHA FIERCE! A DIVA who has a big EGO! Only a classless woman would comment on JJ’s upbringing. I have no idea who compared her family to the Jackson’s. Pleeease! Next time Beyonce, let Kelly Rowland conduct your interviews, since unfortunately attending private school could not convert your country bumpkin ignorant @ss! Rowland by far, is way more articulate than you are! (and her Mama was a nanny!)

    The comment was rude and ignorant!! The Jacksons paved the way for black artist!! When the jackson 5 came out there were hardly any african american acts. They blazed the trail!! She is a selfish self centered idot!!! go sell 100 albums and then say something!! Most of the records she sold was when she was with DC!!! She go nothing on Janet or the Jacksons!!! She sould sit her ignorant self down and put on some clothes!!!

  155. tracy says:

    if beyonces said that she really lost my repect

  156. annette says:

    The one thing I would like to addressed with this alleged comment, I don’t buy Elle so I really don’t know what the azarticle stated, but if its true then there is really no comparisons bc most of the Jacksons were born starting in 1950 and Janet was born in 1966, so of course the Knowles were considered Upperclass, Beyonce’ was born in 1981, times were different so Matthew could afford a Jag during the times he was rearing his daughters. Now if she would have been born during the times that the Jacksons were born and not the time that they were having children themselves her comment could not have come off like it did, and furthermore, Matthew is no different from Joe, he saw talent in his own child and her friends at the time which meant ching, ching. Joe, well Mr Jackson, is older than Matthew, and his children are much older than Matthew’s . Sh!!!!@ Matthew probably researched if not admired what Joe did. But if she meant to make the Jacksons look poor, whe can’t say too much she is married to someone who grew up in the PJ’s and made his money the huslter’s way,illegal, he was just able to get out and flip it and find a career in music with rapping. So in essence what!

  157. pipi says:

    MJ did for the music industry what Obama did for politics. If beyonce said that then I ve lost all respect for her . I doubt she did as tabloids can be deceptive…… But if she did……
    B, if you are reading then please go back to the humble B we liked. This whole gangstar wanna B thing doesnt suit you.Its what distinguishes you from Alicia Keys. She maintains has class and I hope you learn from her. I live in Britain. Upper classes actually try to conceal their background…..and attended Eton, Harrow, etc etc ….then proceed to greater academic institutions…They dont have to show their body to the whole world to sell any thing…In that sense papa Knowles exploited you….Incidentally, upper classes enjoy fishing and hunting and dont have time for Beyonce CDs….aaha,reality ah.

    We all liked the girl with no education who worked hard and made it.But this whole new B…..well is reminiscent of Whitney and Bobby and that did not end too well.When you are blessed you have to be humble about it otherwise it can go…..just like that.
    I hope its not true……I am highly disappointed.And Solange……….its not about been scared of Janet….Seriously, who are you to attack Janet and her family’s dynasty/…..The jacksons are music royalty worth more than the entire knowles family and i am sure mama knowles will be highly disappointed especially seeing how many people I know who have taken their B posters off…..people who incidentally arent from “upper class”…
    A musician’s success is contingent on her fan base….you just lost a die hard fan…ask anybody who knows me….
    please take my advise and let the Bible direct you towards Godly pursuits and not worldly fame…which can be transient…!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  158. Fan says:

    Okay, I am so tired of racist comments about African-American entertainers. Every time an African-American star says or does something that the media or people do not agree with, they are called “ghetto”. Beyonce has never lived or probably hung around people from the ghetto. You should read the full article before you dissect things. The interviewer asked her questions about her family (dad). It was similar to “did her parents (father) push her into the music industry and take away her childhood, like the Jackson. She has never given a public comment about any one; therefore, the interviewer tried to bait her. Now, I see why she is so careful about what she says in interviewers not to be perfect, but for things like this that are taken out of context. If the Jacksons are so concerned about how the public views them (and I love Janet), they should have never agreed for a movie to be made, hell or books.

    I am a beyonce fan but beyonce u was out of pocket for what u said. I HAVE BEEN A JANET FAN FOR YEARS AND YEARS. GIRL sometimes u do have a big EGO!!!!! STOP!!!!

NOTHING IS WRONG with a family who was living in poverty to take there kids see talent in them and push them 2 be somthin, successful people, Stars 2 be correct! Next time think b4 u speak!!!! AT the end of the day u should be telling janet jackson thank you, she helped pave some of that road u travellin!!!!! fyi- Dont get bigger than yourself.

  160. tonya says:

    Um, Fan I am sorry honey but the reason that Beyonce doesn’t say much in her interviews is because she is illiterate, she cannot put two sentences together, and by the way there was nothing wrong with the Jackson’s letting their story be told. It is a great story. Beyonce lacks class, that’s the problem, if she wasn’t such a selfish brat, she could have easily said that they grew up under different circumstances and during a different error. Period, but she showed her classless ghetto mentality by her response. To bad that private school was a waste of money, because she is as ignorant as they come.

  164. Fan says:

    @bad-blonde-weave, I see why things are blown out of control. Did you actually read what I wrote? Did you actually read the whole interview? I love the Jackson’s, and Beyonce did not try to offend any of them. Fortunately, for me, my father was in the military, and I have never lived in the ghetto. I think that her speaking skills are low because she grew up in the South, and at a very young age, she devoted most of her time to perfecting her art. I am proud of the Jacksons, Beyonce and any African-American person, who have successful lives and careers. If someone is offended by Beyonce’s comment, it should be Joe Jackson (but he is too busy promoting his new record label after his son’s death). He is the one who beat his kids and denied them a childhood for money (and the Jacksons said that)!

  165. Fan says:

    @bad-blonde-weave, I think name calling is very childish, but I should expect that from people who do not have anything intelligent to say. Neither you nor I matter to Beyonce or the Jacksons. I just had to comment because some people, like you read one part and took off.

    By the way, Jay has more money than you and the Jacksons put together (I think he is worth a couple of BILLIONS). You do not matter to him. His looks have not stopped anything for him. While you are wasting your time talking about B or Jay, they are laughing all the way to the bank! Go B

    Now I am finished because I have to study for the LSAT. Do you know what that is smarty?

  178. FLgrl says:

    I have started to not like Beyonce, because her humility has disappeared over the years. She thinks way to highly of herself when shes not even all that. Her stupid comment on how she grew up is so disrepectful to the Jackson family, and shows how ignorant and immature she really is. There have been so many allegations on her stupid diva behavior and this just proves it all.

  179. fabolous says:

    Um bad-blonde-weave, i happen to be a huge beyonce fan,listen to her music every now and then. I am a honor Roll student so that comment about beyonce fans are not that bright is not true. YOU JUST A HATER OKAY.

    • Yo says:

      No ones hating I think Beyonce doesn’t realize how many girls dreams she has broken on her way to the top and when I look at her past group members it saddens me that she has dissed them like that. She also doing the same thing to her fans, she used the girls that loved her brought her CD’s went to the concerts faithly then when she get rolling she plays at a venue that starts her tickets at the price of $200.00 , that is really cruel. She needs to be humble in this game. I love stories such as the Jackson’s they were hustler in the game of life, the didn’t have private schools, jags and they were faith to thier fans and professional associates.

      • charlottedacat says:

        I agree, and I think that alot of her fans forget what black artist went through. The Jacksons is apart of that era. I do give her credit for being Beautiful and getting away with what white women in the past got away with. “you can do anything if your pretty”. The Jackson’s were apart of a time when you were black you had to be the best. No if’s and’s or but’s. She sings ok, but she doesn’t connect with her music, there’s no emotion. No passion, just alot of catchy hooks that you won’t miss 10 years later. She has yet to release a classic song yet. No real quality!!

  180. V.I CHICK 340 says:

    y’all needa stop hating on beyonce. personally i aint a big a fan of either of them but i’m pretty sure beyonce didnt mean it the way y’all and the media making it sound. i aint tryna sugar coat it or nuttin but look at it this way maybe she was just saying she decided she wanted to sing on her own and her family supported her but the jacksons didnt really decide decide they were brought into doing it.the media is there to entertain simple minded people that doesnt think out the box and has nothin better to do than hate on things they could never have.

    • Yo says:

      You need to research her dad was no differnt than Mr Jackson instead physical beat down, he gave the other girls in D-Child a mental beat down

    • charlottedacat says:

      Actually her father quit his job and started managing Destiny child full time when she was in elementary school. And if my memory serves me right he’d put all his money into the group and was about to loose everything. Tina had to go out and get a job to keep their home. So all that private school, they wasted their money she can speak. As for being like the Jacksons at one point she had no choice, if she wanted to stop. Also Papa Knowles is nothing but another Jo. It’s just that Jo had 9 children and her father had 2. The Jackson’s were struggling through the 50′s and 60′s with racism and still fought through. And she booty shaked in when all the hard work was done. The Jacksons made it possible for white America to be comfortable with watching blacks on tv. The Jacksons were the first that white kids didn’t have to hide that they liked their music from their white parents.

      • Mr. Facts says:

        Actually Papa Knowles fathered three children – Kelly Rowland! Funny how members of the group Destiny’s Child came and went but two remained from the start… Also, of the three girls Kelly is the one who most resembles him – even with the new nose and extra glam… Beyonce is alright, I’ll give her props but she should know and respect that she’ll never hold a candle 2 Ms. Jackson. If she’d like to improve herself she might try charm school 4 starters. And doll baby for heavens sake THINK before you speak.

    @ Jay Jay, I agree with you. Both MJ and Beyonce have an influence on today’s music. In addition, both of them are great humanitarians. They say a wise person knows “Believe none of what you hear or read and believe some of what you see”. This is because you never really know anyone and sometimes your eyes and imagination can play tricks on you.

    @Tonya, What is ghetto? She has never lived in the ghetto before. If you are talking about how she articulates her words then yes, some may say she is illiterate but not ghetto. Many that know her personally say, “she is a very giving person,” which is the opposite of selfish. I agree with you about her comment. She should have kept that thought to herself. I know we all have personal feelings and opinions about others that may not be so nice, so we do not say them publicly. The reason some people say she tries to act so perfect is that in interviews she has never commented about anyone in a negative way. Now I see why, she needs to stick with that motto.

  186. Josi says:

  190. Fan says:

    @Yo, How did she use anyone? Every star rather if it is from acting, singing, dancing, etc. in the beginning are cheaper until their stocks rise. When actors first start in the movies, they charge 1 million dollars or less. When their popularity increases, their cost increases, like some actors who demand 20 mil per film. Anyway, not all of her tickets cost $200 it depends on the venue. Michael Jackson, Madonna, Janet Jackson and any entertainer or rock group that is popular sell some of their tickets at high prices. “Girls’, well I guess Miley Cyrus is a user also because some of her concert tickets are $80 dollars and higher. Here is a link where Beyonce decreased some of her tickets costs, so her fans could afford them. beyonceonline.$$m/us/news/north-american-dates-annonunced-beyonc%C3%A9s-i-am-world-tour?page=1
    For the record, girls are not the only group who likes Beyonce, adult working people are also fans.

    @Layla, What do you mean, “selling sex?” In the past decade, most of Janet Jackson’s music, videos and magazine shoots have been very sexy and somewhat provocative.

    @ Everyone, if you listen to many of Beyonce’s interviews she constantly praises Michael Jackson, and she credits him for some of her ideas.

    This is so crazy to me that this conversation is still going on and people are blowing this way out of control.

    • charlottedacat says:

      She does that not to be left out. That’s what everybody does. And actually if she loves Michael so much why doesn’t she have somthing to say about Janet. Because the same movement Michael made with the videos Janet showed us that a woman can do it and be just as dynamic as Michael. She the first to do a solo dance video and look good by herself. She is just as clean as her dancers ,but doesn’t need them to make her look good. As for her being sexy. That was an evolution. Janet did most of her best dancin’ dressed like a boy, and the guys still thought she was fine and pretty.

    There is no sides here point is bey made a bad slip dnt thnk she ment it tht way bt she shud watch wat she says nxt tym and atleast gve and apology 2 the jacksons. They had 2 do wat thy dd 2 survive and make it in tht era. I cn understand y janet wud b angry bt she shud understand tht beyonce lived a different life and my b a little used 2 geting thngs easy.

  197. JoannofHtown says:

    Spreading our mind wings….. . You see an insult?, did she say she was betta off being raised like that? IF she said it, u forget that th media fks beautiful?, IF she sed it, its the facts. Shecould have sed she didnt grow up blind like Stevie in the ghetto and it would jus be REAL, he’s cool with it-ain’t you? You afraid of real? Real ain’t dissin. Take it personal and you be stuck in the belief that money means you are more of a person. You think she believes that? You aren’t listening to her and JayZ. Clear to see that everybody who took offense at it got a problem and prejudice with her being born and raised different. She never said she was betta for it, you think she didnt have problems dealing with things in that world? -Proof is this exact sht bein thrown at her. It wasnt beautiful being born black, now you cant be born black with some money…your words are cutting your own future crib… Spread your mind wings.

  198. Cee says:

    It is such a shame as these issues continue to happen in the music industry. We all don’t know exactlty what was said and who said what to even be commenting. I personally don’t find a lot of Beyonces songs moving, like a Whitney, or Janet Jackson song. Most of B’s song are full of vigorous violent movements, grinding, head swinging of the lace wigs etc. Yes she is a gorgeous girl and her make up is impeccable but she can be mellow as well and really make people move. Yes sex sells but when you talk about empowering women and that this is a new error…leaves much to the imagination of what she is trying to say and do. The messages in many of her songs, the image she presents gives young girls the wrong idea of what should matter in life. And listening to her speak kind of makes me cringe. If one attended private school, one’s thoughts and speech would be a little different than most. Then again, it’s just my opinion. It does not matter where you come from rich or poor, as long as you are respectful to others, loyal and trustworthy, that is all that counts. And if Beyonce really did say those aweful things, she should just apologise to the Jackson family.

  199. Gabby says:

    Yeah janet is definelty way better! he B is like a lil kid compared to Janet! Janet is alot smarter and wiser! B she seem like a snob I love her music but without her song writer she wouldn’t be sh** and if she didnt have money do be all fixed up she would be just another hood rat on the streets!

  200. Fan says:

    @charlottedacat, I agree with you somewhat. However, I think you are a little confused. Beyonce did not say anything personal about “Janet” alone. She said her family was not poor like the Jacksons, who used their kids to make money. The reason Janet dressed like a boy was because she was self-conscious of her body, probably because she is knockneed and tries to hide it. Janet has always had self-image problems. Do not get me wrong. I am a Janet fan always was and always will be. She was the pioneer for African-American women solo artists, in my opinion.

  201. Fan says:

    cee, I do not think B was trying to be cruel when she made her comment, but with all the drama, she should just be the bigger person and apologize. You must not be a fan of hers because most of her songs fast or slow are about empowering woman. That is why in her video bootylicious, she had woman of all sizes, shapes and color. When interviewed, she said that all women are beautiful they just have to be comfortable with themselves. Her music tells young girls to stand up for themselves, make their own money and love themselves. You should really listen to her music not just hear it. When I first became a fan of hers, I was listening to “sweet sixteen” and was in tears because I knew so many young girls like that.

    Honestly, I feel that Beyonce is always attacked because she is a very successful African-American woman. What about all the none talent pop stars, who are constantly saying and doing things?

  202. gest says:

    @ nutty, go to school! You are such a troglidite! just like beyonce! your both about as high class, as a chewed up piece of gum on the sidewalk! go to school!

    LOL!derek,u,are,so,right!:)

  206. KeepitReal says:

    Bottom line, Beyonce will NEVER sell as many records as Michael, Janet, or the Jackson 5 in each of their respective careers. The fans have spoken, Beyonce music is low-class in comparison. Maybe Beyonce made those comments out of jealousy. Notice Beyonce never has anything nice to say when she feels threaten, e.g. Jennifer Hudson.

    • Amerie says:

      EXACTLY so the Beyonce fans need to hush because not everybody kissess her butt and the world doesn’t revolve around her all you Beyonce puppets stay on your strings until Beyonce cuts yaw loose!!!!!!

  207. fabolous says:

    What did she say about Jennifer Hudson?

  208. miss jones says:

    first of all, beyonce clearly did not mean anything by her comment. all you have to do is look at the jackson five movie to see that joe saw his children and saw money. yes the jacksons’s are very talented (some of them), but beyonce is just as talented too. beyonce’s voice is amazing and she has such a great vocal range. janet? … not so much (at least not the vocal range beyonce has, janet wispers on most of her songs). beyonce is a great dancer, as well as we all know, Janet is an amazing dancer. beyonce is an honorable song writer and a great actress. by janet saying beyonce has a lot of growing up to do and even going back and forth, shows that she is not as wise as she could be for her age. seriously, they are both really beautiful and talented and janet needs to realize that the comment wasn’t meant to start any controversy.

    • Daysa says:

      then she should have thought about what she said then said it. JAnet HAs the right to fight back because she just lost her brother and any comments towards them that is negative is seriously sad.

    • Fan says:

      Exactly, I watched the movie and thought the same about Joe. Really, the whole world thinks that about Joe except Joe, LOL

  209. fabolous says:

    I wonder how is beyonce and her family taking this?

    • Fan says:

      It went in one ear and out the other. Beyonce has not made one comment about Janet’s reaction. Get over it thats life. Beyonce has a right to her own opinion just like everyone here who has something to say.

  210. Dannie Girl says:

    I think Beyonce tries to hard and is so damn fake its sick.
    Janet jackson is the best and every person that compairs Janet to Beyonce needs to stay off them drug’s cause yall are crazy.If B would stop singing them dumb cry baby songs and just be herself and stop tryin to be perfect which she’ll never be i might like her.As for B’s comment about the jackson family you can say what u want but if they dad used them as a way out B’s dad straight pimped her out he controlled every thing with destiny’s child booted the other girls out the group and lets not mention that he wants to control everyone that deals with B thats why he was so mad when she didnt get the award for dream girls. I think B should pay for baby sis to attend some singing lessons cause she has no talent and they need to get back to where they come from. The one thing i can say is the Jackson family never intently tried to hurt anyone by saying negative things about anyones upbringing or family.

  211. Dannie Girl says:

    Regardless of why she made that comment about the Jackson family it was wrong in many ways and i would be pissed if i was Janet.People should learn to be humble because thats whats in the heart and not because u trying to be something your not…Just be real not fake

  213. Fan says:

    This shows that you really do not listen to Beyonce music. Many times, she has talked about her flaws or insecurities and how she has learned to love what she has and work what she has. None of this really matters because She is (who are you) and you are (Beyonce- Beyonce—echos while she rides by) LMAO

  214. Mychell says:

    It wasn’t necessary for beyonce to say that!! Just because she has lots of fame at the moment, does not give her the right to say what she wants like that. She claims to be sooo spiritual and sweet, yet she’s putting people down like that. Beyonce just needs to STOP already. If she came up all upper class going to a private school & crap like that wtf is she singing a song like Diva???
    “A DIVA IS FEMALE VERSION OF A *HUSLA*” b$$$h ain’t no Hustler!

      Where the hell do you think these new bitches came from…the women who sing now are skinny as hell but tha sistas from back then who originated this soul we see today were all heavy black women..and til this day more that half of them has achieved more than Beyonce and many other artists ..do ur homework plz cuz that comment is not true

  216. Aislinn says:

    Beyonce fans just HUSH because yaw are probably the same ones who jumped down Nia Long’s throat and Nia was not trying to put down Beyonce she was just speaking the truth just like yaw claim yaw girl is!!!! Anyways I really don’t feel like these artist we have now-and-days including Beyonce will EVER COMPARE TO THE ARTIST our parents had or the artist we had in the 90′s!!! NOBODY and I mean NOBODY is creative anymore or makes music like they use to it’s so true that music has died ever since MJ died sigh!!!!

  217. Neeka says:

    I feel that comment is very disrespectful..im young but i appreciate both janet n michael’s music very much..im proud of them n the fact that they appreciate who they r n where they came from..beyonce is so damn ridicoulous..pounds of make-up, skin-tone brightener n a ton of weave dont make u upper class or BAD(not real bad real bad michael jackson lol)mama..so build a bridge n get the F*** over it..I love the Jackson family , they’re the American Dream =)

  218. Miyan says:

    Beyonce was very disrespectful with the comment that she made. She needs to grow up. It goes to show you just how low budget Beyonce really is. I guess growing up upper-class does not mean you have class.

  219. Cynthinia says:

    I followed this thread because I had to stop and think and realize why Beyonce really grates my nerves. Beyond her massive overexposure and dubious family business practices, what is it? She’s the first entertainer I have greatly disliked. I know I should get a life…I am exiting from celebrity gossip and sightings, very soon, but for now…i must rant…

    “By any means necessary” has karma attached! “You reap what you sow.”

    If you put Janet’s videos side by side with Beyonce’s, there is no competition. Janet with limited vocals, tops beyonce with timeless music, just loads of rnb classics.

    I do look forward to the day, when we get another booty shaking dancer who happens to sing with a powerful range, no artistry and is ultra beautiful with a killer manager/father. I happen to like Tina Knowles, I don’t believe she cosigns everything from Beyonce.

    Solange should have focused on her acting career, like a J-lo and then came back to singing, like Jill Scott. But, the B comes first. Solange is a much better actress, but, once again, she’s falling into the Kelly Rowland spot…Kelly’s still a long way from having the confidence she needs, she’ll eventually get there! But, Beyonce is the fragile one and Solange has the emotional strength and had to enable her sister and take a back seat to her fame. As her artistry was trying to peak, she fell into the Beyonce vortex, like Kelly and others. Solange should have spent time just learning to act…writing music…playing acoustic guitar and piano…rocking the small club scene…instead of being mass marketed…she actually has more talent than her sister, aside from looks and vocals, which are nothing without artisty. Not pitting one sister against the other, but Solange was sacrificed for Beyonce. Because of how Solange looks, this gives her a strong presence on screen and her leanness would greatly play out as a super heroe, but naw, B gotta do it first and seemingly pave the way for little sister.

    Letoya was blessed to leave and her confidence shines through, insecurites and all.

    Well, the rant is over, I hope permanently, I admit I had a problem. Just hate unfairness disguised as whatever?

    Peace and blessings to the Knowles family…

  220. William says:

    Everyone, I’m sure that this response has been taken out of context. Until you see the entire interview you do not know what lead to the answer. Janet paved the way for Becyonce, thats a given. I think Beyonce’s answer is simply pointing out that the public thinks that blacks have to sing, dance, or play sports to make money; Beyonce is saying that she sings because she wanted too, that they didn’t need the money to survive and they had a more prosperous home than perhaps that Jacksons may have had. I’m a Janet and a Beyonce fan…and my level of intelect isn’t a factor! Lol!

  221. Fan says:

    @William, I agree with your comments. I am also a Janet and Beyonce fan. Many people when they see or hear of wealthy black people they do assume either athlete, entertainer or criminal (LOL).

  222. c33zy says:

    i think what beyonce said was taken out of context. the reporter asked her if, LIKE THE JACKSONS, her father had pushed her to become a star, her response was, she WANTED to become famous…she wasnt neccessarily pushed to become so.the reporter made the jackson reference first, not beyonce. she was basically sayin that she had already come from a fairly successful family, i dont think she purposely meant for her statement to be taken as it was. she should, however, still have a bit of humility. and as for the “blonde weave” reference. its only a problem because beyonce is wearing it…..mary j, whitney houston, and hell, even rick james were wearing blonde weaves for years…so why only now, is it a problem?

    • david says:

      i agree. y is it a problem now that beyonce is wearing the blonde weave when many other black celebrities have been wearing it for years. the comment that beyonce supposidly said was takin way out of context when she was only using janet as an example. it was not meant to do any harm to janet or her family. i also believe that the reporter took it to a new level of stupidity. so there for i think that hte entire situatuion be dropped.

  223. Vivian says:

    Not everybody who didn’t have money or just doing it for the money artist like Michael, Mary, Keyshia, Alicia,etc. and others who didn’t have money growing up do it because they love it and have a passion for it, also becuase it helps them to escape from reality so don’t assume that every black person who started off with no money is just doing it for the money becuase the same thing can be said for people who started off with money!!!!

  224. Kila says:

    Personally I think Beyonce has gotten cocky ever since she became the “it” girl I think she is very talented and all, but she better watch her back because she ain’t going to be hot FOREVER she better hope that she is going to be remmbered 20-40 years from now that’s all I’m saying because artist like Janet, Mariah, Michael, Prince, Aretha, Whitney, Mary, Patti, Diana, Tina, Celion, etc have already reached the legend status so they really don’t have to worry about being “it” anymore or being “hot”!!!!

    • xquiste says:

      i agree with kila she has gotten cocky and she is extremely talent but she dont wanna losefan by talking about the jackson family thats like talkin about patti or even tupac she need to realize that she’s high on the charts or whatever but she no where near a janet or michael when u can stop making music and writing song and your fans are still listening to your old hits and waiting for u to come back then u really have something to talk about becuz that mean youre gonna be remembered by your fans n the jackson and many others have accomplished that

      • chick_tabu says:

        Excellent post “kila” and “xquiste”. It’s good somebody sees Beyonce for the cocky cow she is and not what she’s tryna project. Janet isn’t the first artist we’ve heard her take blows at in interviews. She took a stab at others & Jennifer Hudson also. An interviewer asked her how did she feel about Hudson got the grammy. Instead of commending her B said although she(herself) worked hard & even lost weight for the film it didnt matter b/c she was already a superstar! I almost fell out when I read that, lol. Than soon as B went solo she said on national TV that Kelly Rowland was their MAID’S DAUGHTER after saying kelly & her were cousins all those yrs they were Destiny Child! Excuse me but didnt B’s father quit his job to focus on her career & at one point errything relied on her?! They had to downsize on errything & sell the home B said in that tv interview. She so fake & trys to hard to look white, sry but it’s the truth

    • 100percentreal says:

      Shut up..period

  225. Chuks says:

    Beyonce may be hot n all that but she could hardly ever get to the status of the Jacksons. The Jacksons especially Michael; in fact Michael Jackson happens to be the most popular person in the world. His life and times cut across generations. Janet has every reason to be proud of her family. I respect the Jackson’s family. Beyonce is yet to start; she’s got a real long way to go. She’s not known to so many, but she can only come up when she decides to humble herself. Michael was very humble; he had no time for cheap popularity. He didnt feature butts in his videos, yet he sold more than any other. He was disciplined, moral, focused. He didnt display sexual immorality in his videos, and that earned him his fame. Michael will forever be remembered but the likes of Beyonce fade out easily. Janet please disregard comments from people who are yet to get to your status cos that shows you are well ahead of them. Kudos to the Jacksons

  226. MYA says:

    Why do yaw keep saying it was taking out of context how do yaw know? That’s why I’m starting to think it wasn’t taking out of context because usually Beyonce would have spoke on it by now to clear things up and she hasn’t done that yet!!! Look first of all even if the reporter did bring it up first doesn’t mean that Beyonce had to give her answer the way she did, she could have answered in a better way, but it doesn’t matter the Jacksons are THE BEST FOREVER there will be no family like them!!! Oh and tell me why was it neccessary for her to bring up she went to private schools, flew in private jets, and all that other crap nobody needed to know that!!! WHATEVER JACKSONS FOREVER BABY EVER!!!!!!!

  227. Nicole says:

    First of all I wanna say I’m a big Beyonce fan big up! But I’m an even bigger fan of what the Jackson family has accomplished and even after Michaels death I’m still a big fan I love them all! And I only hope Beyonce will apologize because none of this is necessary I personally believe she is being a spoiled brat and lookn down on the people who made her into what she is 2day!!! Love u Janet Jackson keep your head up

    • 100percentreal says:

      You fake as hell! All y’all talking mess fake! ….all this is hear say NO ONE knows the truth you guy know that a lot of the times people say stuff to stirr up drama..if none of y’all know the truth..shut the hell up..keep y’all 2cents to y’all self..jus be positive..haven’t y’all parents ever taught y’all if you don’t have nothing nice to say don’t say nothing at all..period!

    why do beyonce have to say that she went to a private schools? the living standard is not the same to everybody each and everybody fihgt on their way,it is not beyonce busness what the jeckosons went struth before the become supper stars.i love the jackson forever.beyonce cresce e apareça

    • KB says:

      Rosa,
      I agree with you and a private school doesn’t qualify someone as a “quality” human being. Look at those kids in Chicago that beat that 16 year old honor student to death? They all went to a “private” Christian school no less, so what does that mean? Hey, drug dealers drive Jaguars and some of the richest people in the world are lunatics and drug addicts so money and status doesn’t make anyone better than anyone else. Some people are so simple!

  229. MYA says:

    Let me make this clear for the people who are saying Michael and them said it in intervies IT’S THEIR DAD it’s o.k. for them to say what their DAD did to thjem because it’s their DAD and they were there when it happened o.k so don’t even comapre that to Beyonce saying that!!!!

  230. MYA says:

  232. sam says:

    THE ONLY THING I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT WHAT BEYONCE SAID IS THAT WAS UNCALLED FOR. AND I ALSO THINK THAT FAME HAS GONE TO HER HEAD. DO ANY BODY REMEMBER WHEN BEYONCE GOT PUNKED. AND THE CHRISTMAS TREE FELL, AND ALL THE CHILDREN WERE CRYING, IF YOU DO; THEN YOU REMEMBER THAT INSTEAD OF CONSOLING THE CHILDREN IMMEDATELY SHE LOOKED TO SEE IF SHE BROKE A NAIL. THAT IS WHEN MY PERCEPTION OF HER STARTED TO CHANGE. OH, AND ANOTHER THING WHY DID WE HAVE TO KNOW THAT HER FATHER DROVE A JAG? WHEN A PERSON SPEAKS OF THEMSELFS IN THOSE BETTER THAN YOU TERMS, THE ONLY THING THAT SAYS TO ME IS THAT THEY FEEL THAT THEY ARE SOMEHOW BETTER THAN THE OTHER ARTIST(AND THE AVERAGE JOE)WHO MABY DID NOT START OUT WITH MONEY, BUT WHO HAD TO WORK EVEN HARDER TO TO BECOME THEIR PERSONAL BEST. LOVE YOU JANET, AND YOU ARE BY FAR A STAR IN MY BOOK, AND I WOULD VENTURE TO BET A WHOLE LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE FEEL THE SAME AS I DO.

  233. Jalessa says:

    Celebs aren’t perfect and everybody thinks that Beyonce is so sweet, innocent and she can’t make mistakes sorry to all Beyonce fans, but she is no differnt then the rest of us she gets mad like we do, she can be mean just like we can, she burps just like us, she has her moments like everybody else so I wish people would just stop treating her like she wasn’t created from God like the rest of us were remember in God’s eyes we’re all equal so why her fans think she is better then everybody on this earth guess what… SHE’S NOT she is just hardworking, but not perfect or better then the next person that sits next to her maybe more sucessful, but not better!!!!

    • Wendy says:

      Amen, I totally agree with you.

    • Suss says:

      I agree with you, but she needs to apologize for what she said. She said something wrong she needs to apologize for that. We never said she aint hard working, but she clearly said something wrong and she needs to own up to that. No excuses whatsoever (even for celebs).

  234. MAHJ says:

    I told you all months ago that there was no beef between them. Tell me why Janet and Beyonce are sitting side-by-side at the VMAS tonight if they’re “beefing” so hard?

    • Lola says:

      Where they sitting next to each other? I’m pretty sure she would be sitting next to her family why would she sit next to Beyonce? And if she was it was because they sat her there she didn’t chose to I’m sure!!1

    Beyonce, please check yourself before you wreck yourself, the same god that put you where you are will be the same one bring you down. Thank godb for you body bcuz you don’t have no looks.

    I SINCERELY BELIEVE THAT BEYONCE’S WORDS WERE MISIMISINTERPRETED BY THE JOURNALIST WHO INTERVIEWED HER, BEYONCE IS EITHER COCKY NOR SELF CENTERED. DON’T GET ME WRONG BUT SHE’S RIGHT ABOUT THE JACKSONS HAVING USED JANET TO GET OUT OF A BAD SITUATION.
    BUT THEN AGAIN, WE ALL GOTTA DO WHAT WE HAVE TO IN ORDER TO SURVIVE IN THIS WORLD!

    How do you guys know Beyonce is humble or not cocky anybody can act sweet when they are in front of the camers you never know how people act behind the scenes don’t be fooled by eveyhting you see yaw don’t know her personally and actually I do believe Beyonce said it because on MTV when she was giving an interview she said the exact same thing about the Jacksons and who is Beyonce or anybody else to sit here and say what the Jackson’s did she nor any of us grew up with them or know them personally whatever happened with the Jacksons is between The Jacksons and God. It’s none of our business!!!!

    I think that Beyonce has let the fame get 2 her head & she thinks she’s the s*** but she ain’t.The Jacksons r way hotter than Beyonce.Beyonce it cocky & somebody needs 2 put her in her place.Beyonce has good music & but she just needs 2 watch what she says & just think b4 she speaks next time cause if someone would have said something like that 2 her then she would have made a d**** song about it like she do everything else!!!!(LOL):)

  243. Shorty rock says:

    First of all everybody hypes up Beyonce, she sounds like a chipmunk when she sings. The Jackson’s been around before she was even thought about and they are the BEST and will always be the BEST. She FALL BACK Beyonce and watch what you say.

  244. M.J.J4eva says:

    She is way out of line and if i was janet i would beat her a$s

  245. Mark says:

    Most people love 2 hate Beyonce, so I completely agree that she was taken out of context on this 1. I actually think that the interveiwer was trying 2 get an overly critical statement from her comparing both artists n ne way. Naturally, Beyonce answered the question speaking personally 4 herself and while acknowledging every detail of the question. Let’s keep it real, only Beyonce can understand the admiration she has for Janet and the the other Jackson’s growing up till now, so I truly don’t believe she would make a comment discrediting them especially after Michael’s death. She is no angel, but the girl can only speak 4 herself and go by what she has knowledge on when answering a question like that. The essence of someone who doesn’t try 2 sugar coat how she feels when confronted with a controversial question.

  246. Lynn says:

    Please get off of this whole everybody hates Beyonce crap everybody don’t hate her we don’t even know her to hate her or love her ok the girl said it and she was wrong!! And actually this statement happened before Michael’s death!!

    I think she’s dumb too….But she is no where near the Jackson’s family to be talking crap about them. They older then her, they are more then her cuz its only two of her including her sister Solange which she will never be heard in the future im talking bout Solange, they more talented then her, more successfulthen her, they will be making longer history then her, more experience then her and maybe more class then her too. She really needs to get her act strait before she desappear from the music ceene…..because when she keeps runing her mouth senseless, her fans who keep her in the indudtry gonna start turning their backs towards her…..she really needs to learn how to hold an intellingent conversation in public……the only reason she is that famous is because of that fake hair of hers the look and that thick body…..talking bout she went to private school and what the heck she sounds that dumb when she speaks and has the nerve to put people down. please e-email me if you think i am wrong souvientoidemoi@hotmail.$$m

  250. tyla says:

    I BELIEVE SHE DID IT. WHEN J-HUD’S FAM WAS MURDERED, BEYONCE DIDN’T EVEN PICK UP THE PHONE TO CALL HER, LET ALONE ATTEND THE FUNERAL. IF SHE CAN DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT, THEN I BELIEVE HER HEAD HAS GOTTEN SO BIG TO THE POINT WHERE SHE CAN BOLDLY SAY SOMETHING ABOUT AMERICA’S ROYAL BLACK FAMILY. THE PPL WHO PAVED THE WAY FOR PPL LIKE HER TO BE ABLE TO SHAKE HER a$s ON MTV ARE LEGENDS. PERIOD. HUMBLE, SWEET, KIND PPL WHO WILL BE REMEMBERED. SHE IS JUST A SELFISH EVIL PHONY b$$$h WHO CANT STAND FOR ANYONE TO HAVE THE SPOTLIGHT. THE KNOWLES WILL NEVER BE THE JACKSONS.

  251. telling it like it is! says:

    first of all- I have yet to hear anyone say what is true. the Jacksons and many,many other singers actually the average singer, can from proverty or from much less endowed status than what they achieved when they became stars. It usually makes them better performers. the jackson are superstars, historical and a part of American history. They inspired others, especially Micheal and Janet of course.
    Just who the hell does Beyonce, a really no singing, a$s shaking thing a ma jig, think she is? Hum? If she was trying to say that her family was already established and a middle class family in america, was there no better way to say it. But oh! wait a minute every now and then she is always, saying something dumb, that we have to over look, right? Like the fact that she was lighter than all the other girls in the group, and she wished she was hispanic. Beyonce, if you went to private school, you did not learn much! Your parents need a refund. you can’t even speak articulate, and nothing you say really matters.
    ‘Sweet heart, if it weren’t for you 6 figured salesman father with all the brains backing you, where would you be? but a used trick in hollywood. Be careful what you say. What goes up, will difenetly come down. it has happen to the best of them. Deflate, those fake a$s breasts and loosen your wig maybe, that will give some better interveiwing skills next time. maybe your wig too tight? Janet is Queen! still beautiful and looks way better that beyonce ever will!

  252. G_King1 says:

    Ms.Jackson has sold more albums than beyonce.b$$$h said janet is her icon.She’s a b$$$h and she’s been this way.but she should know not 2 cross ms.jackson.

  253. ForSure. says:

    Janet Jackson all the way, Beyonce had no right whatsoever to say that. That is just plain rude. There has always been something about Beyonce’s attitude that rubbed me the wrong way. I am so happy that she finally slipped and is shown for the b$$$h that i know she really is. No matter how sweetly she said it, I still know the intentional meaning of her words.

  254. Mark says:

    Not 2 b taking sides or nething, cause Beyonce was naive 4 responding 2 that question, but I feel that both parties r at fault 4 this so-called feud. Janet is supposed 2 b mature & she is aware of how people can b n the business, so I think that she could’ve tried 2 have been more understanding 2 Beyonce’s situaton at the time n not have taken it so personally. No1 knows how she meant what she said but Beyonce & alot of things come out wrong n the heat of the moment, but not everyone has 2 deal with being quoted 4 the rest of the world 2 c. Obviously, people love 2 hate her, cause that’s the conclusion they want 2 jump 2.

  255. Delilah says:

    To put it simply Beyonce was wrong for what she said she will NEVER be like the Jacksons and nobody is hating on Beyonce they are speaking facts so DEAL WITH IT!!!

  256. beyonce and janet fan says:

    I grew up listening to Janet Jackson. I loved her from back during the days of Control, Rhythm Nation, If, Poetic justice and I still love her now. I also a big fan of Beyonce. I think she is beautiful and talented and she can out sing many. I don’t know why people are making such a big deal about it. I think she was only letting people know that her family is not the same as the Jackson family.

    I don’t believe she thinks she is better than Janet or anything like that. She even did a tribute to Janet a few years ago. A lot of people are saying she is fake, but you have to remember black people are different and speak differently depending on what part of the U.S. WE come from. I know because I have had the opportunity to leave the south and travel and meet people from all over. I also lived up north for a few years. As a result I I began to speak more proper than I did before. Some people now say I “TALK WHITE”. Come on seriously, using proper English means you are talking white like white people are the only ones who use proper English. I DON’T THINK BEYONCE IS FAKE AT ALL.

    Also, I have heard her speak on several occasions and she does not seem dumb to me. She seems like one of the most intelligent singers out there.

    I think the real problem here is Beyonce on of the most successful female performers out there at this time, and Janet’s last two albums have rally bombed. This upsets a lot of people. People want Janet to have the success she used to have with her earlier albums and she has not been accomplishing that while Beyonce continues to have success.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love Janet and want her to have the success she had with Rhythm Nation and If but I am not going to hate on Beyonce just because her albume is doing better than Janet’s.

    BEYONCE IS HUMAN JUST LIKE THE REST OF US. WE DON’T ALWAYS SAY THE RIGHT THINGS. WE ARE NOT ALWAYS NICE. WHY DOES BEYONCE ALWAYS HAVE TO BE NICE ALL THE TIME. I DON’T THINK SHE MEANT TO INSULT THE JACKSONS BUT IF SHE DID, WHY HATE ON HER.

    AREN’T WE ALL ENTITLED TO HAVE OUR MOMOENTS. I KNOW EVERYONE ON THIS MESSAGE BOARD IS NOT NICE. LOOK AT THE WAY YOU ALL ARE TALKING ABOUT BEYONCE. CALLING HER BIT*HES AND STUFF.

    I think people just don’t like that fact that Beyonce is on top right now because they have other singers they would like to be in her spot.

    I was talking to someone and thay said, “I don’t like Beyonce I prefer Jennifer Hudson.”
    My question is, why can’t we like Beyonce and Jennifer. Why can’t we like Beyonce and Janet. I like them all.

    Don’t hate on Beyonce because she is more successful than the other females

    I don’t believe she should have to apologize for anything.

  257. JoJO says:

    Well Kasie, it’s not obvious what her intentions were! She said what she said in that interview, making asumptions publicly about a family that she is not apart of. Beyonce is an ignoramous, and needs to stick to the sripts, that her father, and other handlers give her. It’s quite clear she is not very well thought out, when she speaks on her own. Real Talk! Hope beyonce does better in the future…. and much Luv to Janet, a true Icon! :)

  258. JoJO says:

    Oops, i meant script!

  259. Alli says:

    Yup that’s the no 1. reason why people don’t like Beyonce she is on top what does that even mean and seriously people aren’t saying all these things about Beyonce because they don’t like her they are just speaking the truth yaw say people say things about Beyonce because they are hating every time someone say’s something about Beyonce they are hating it’s as if whenever it comes to Beyonce nobody is allowed to speak the truth or give an opinion that yaw want to hear!!! We don’t know Beyonce to say she is humble or nice I can care less, but to say what she said about the Jackson was wrong I don’t care how you look at it!!! I bet you if somebody said something about Beyonce family and it was as everyone keeps saying “taking out of context” it wouldn’t matter it would be WWIII and even though Janet keeps releasing albums she really doesn’t have to she is already an ICON and LEGEND Beyonce has yet to reach where Janet is say what you want even though Janet albums having been selling well people still know she is the real deal!!! The reason why Beyonce is still doing good is because she is still young and her music is apart of this generation ,but what are you guys going to say when Beyonce turns 40 and her album flops!!!

  260. Egypt says:

    Why do the fans always make it their job to defend Beyonce every time someone gives an opinion about her no I don’t think we should be calling her names or anybody for that matter celebrities or no celebrities a bad name it’s not just celebrities who get called bad names I still don’t get how yaw can turn around and fuss at somebody else, but yet yaw get mad at people for fussing at Beyonce somebody who doesn’t even know yaw exist and yaw don’t know nothing about? Explain that to me because I’m not going to sit here and defend a celebrity saying to leave them alone or whatever, but yet do the exact same thing to another celebrity or somebody who is a celebrity!!! I don’t get how people call somebody a hater if they don’t like Beyonce or NEVER said they “DIDN’T” like Beyonce and give an opinion, but yet hate on other celebrities or people who aren’t celebrities PERIOD!!!! If you going to defend somebody and you call someone a “hater” saying they need to stop “bad naming” Beyonce then you better make DAMN sure you ain’t doing it to others!!!! I’m not saying it right’s, but I just don’t get why people are so quick to jump on the defensive line when it comes to celebrities and I don’t care if they are your favorite celebrites still WHO CARES!!!! If all you’re going to care about is celebrities then you aren’t living in reality!!!

  261. Alli says:

    My bad I meant to say Janet’s albums haven’t been selling that well.

  262. Nozz says:

    *Sigh* im so glad im no celeb..i would 1nt noboy on my biz worse da whole world on my arse…sheesh fans & their idols.
    Well she was out of line but thats btwn BK& JJ.They can solve the whole damn thing in aflash & they wont tell ya all what went down. They’lol just sit down & read ur blogs and laugh about it while ya all breaking a sweat & poping vains tryin 2 defend who u love most..We ddnt need 2 kno who was wealthier than who grown up though…..Celebs & fans what an unpaying sport.

  263. beyonce and janet fan says:

    I think a lot of people do hate on Beyonce and don’t like her because she is more successful than their favorite artist (I personally know some). I know B. won’t be on top for ever and she knows that too. She has said so in several interviews. I just don’t know what the big deal is about what Beyonce said. Even if she was talking bad about the Jacksons (which I don’t think she did), so what. Beyonce is not the only person to day something bad about the Jacksons. I don’t see people telling all those trash talking reporters that they need to apologise. Why should Beyonce have to apologies. I like the Jacksons and all but I am sure they are not all nice all the time and they have said stuff about people too. Big deal. Beyonce should not have to apologies. People keep talking about how Janet is an icon and all but so what. I like Janet and all, but so what is she is an icon. The fact of the matter is Joe Jackson used his kids to get out of the ghetto. If the shoe fits, wear it. That’s apart of the reason Michael had so many problems. Maybe what Beyonce said really hit home and the Jacksons are are all offended now.

    • JoJO says:

      what hits home is that matthew knowles is pimping out his daughter. How few clothes, and booty bounces can u see ur daughter do before u made enough money? and matthew cheats on Tina continually. So beyonce should worry about her own life, and focus on her family, and no one else!

      Like the saying goes, those who live in glass houses, should not throw stones!

      It’s as simple as that, not hating just stating the facts! and like she sing with dc3 “nasty, put some clothes on you look low down”…..

      • beyonce and janet fan says:

        I don’t see it as Matthew pimping out his daughter. She is an entertainer, he is her manager. She loves what she does so why shouldn’t she do it? Many artists show skin but people seem to have a problem with B showing skin.

        Like Beyonce said, her family did not have to go into entertainment she wanted to. And if she wanted to stop now she could because she can take care of herself and she has a husband that can take care of her.

        Even if Matthew cheats that has nothing to do with it.

        I don’t see anything wrong with Beyonce simply clarifying that her father helped her get into the music industry simply because she wanted to do that instead of them doing it to get out of the ghetto. I lot of parents use their kids like that, and the Jacksons are the poster family.

        Like I said, I’m a Jackson and Beyonce Fan but truth is truth, Joe Jackson wanted his kids to be good singers and dancers so they could have money and a big mansion and he Beat the hell out them to make the do what he wanted and this left them “looking for their childhoods”

        The truth hurts.

        But I’ve always loved Michael and Janet and still do.

  264. Ellie says:

    Man who cares and I wish people would stop saying everybody is hating on Beyonce that’s why they are attacking her so what if they are boo hoo Beyonce ain’t the only one with haters GET OVER IT!!! Yaw are so quick to jump to a celebrity defense, but when it comes to regular people yaw don’t give a rat a$s about them I’m not going to defend none of these celebritites because I don’t know them and there are a lot more people out there whoa re going through worse!!! OMG everybody is saying what Beyonce did was wrong and now their haters or they love to hate on her oh please!!!! As far as the whole Jackson thing goes that’s really none of our business that’s between the Jacksons and GOD it’s not our place or Beyonce’s place to sit and say what went down with the Jacksons none of us know them like that!!!

  265. Ellie says:

    Oops “are”!!

  266. JoJO says:

    I know about matthew because he frequents a hotel I work @, and have seen the jump-offs he comes in and out with. They are all over each other. If he and Tina are seperated, then get a divorce, instead of beatin whores, while you are still married. Would he like it if Jigga did that to B! Just saying God don’t like ugly!

  267. njc mom says:

    Shes a fake, her true colors are starting to show and shes selfish because she dont even want to give her HUSBAND kids right now. Im sure thats why he went ahead and married her not saying that he didnt love her. She has had her moment and Im tired of her. I think Keri said it best when she said she needs to go have some babies and sit her a** down some where.

  268. Joanne says:

    I love how people say Beyonce is more famous than their favorite artist she is also more OVERRATED than your favorite artist!!! I don’t care what anybody says had someone said anything about Beyonce and everything that’s going on with her family like how her Dad be cheating on her mom it would be WWWIV up in this mug!! All her fans will be in full attack mode!!! And you know what’s funny how Beyonce fans get so mad when someone talks about Beyonce like how everyone was attacking Keri Hilson, but when Beyonce has her DIVA moment and talks about other people it’s quite alright some of yaw can’t talk at all!!! And it’s not about attacking Beyonce she was wrong get that thorough yaw heads!! it can be one of my favorite artist that said what Beyonce said and I’ll still think they were wrong!!! Wrong is wrong!!!

  269. Anabelle says:

    Beyonce is so self-centered. For some reason she thinks the world revolves around her and I am just waiting for someone to tell her that is not the case. She steals songs and she still thinks she is the “biggest diva in the game”. First of all, what game? Second, her music isn’t even at the level of Janet’s,Mariah’s, whitney’s or Celine’s. Third, her music now a days is filled with perversion. Beyonce needs to be put in her place.

  270. Jodi says:

    It’s always taking out of context when Beyonce says it, but had this been another female artist that said it yaw would think other wise you people think Beyonce is such an Angel, she can’t make mistakes and she can’t have her DIVA moments!!! PLEASE ok Beyonce needs to seal her mouth close along with her fans who always want to defend her!!! Yaw don’t know Beyonce personally to say it was taking out of context Beyonce is feeling herself too much You heard DIVA and EGO Beyonce didn’t make those songs for nothing she has gotten very cocky!!! She better be careful she may be relevant now, but when she retires people can easily forget about her!!

  271. lorraine says:

    Jodi, Beyonce does always put her foot in her mouth.
    She looks classy but, act trashy at times.
    I very tried of seeing her.

    At this time the Jackson do need some DIVA to be giving the family lip.

  272. Taylor says:

    Beyonce is a b$$$h and she need to sit her a$s down some where

  273. RYU says:

    Class, really beyonce. If her family so upper class or whatever, how come every time she open her mouth she sounds like a complete idiot, and not to mention everything she saying about Joe Jackson, her slimy a$s father did the same, used not only her, but the other girls of Destiny’s Child to build him self up, at least when Janet speaks, she doesn’t sound like a product of inbreeding. Both these women are beautiful talented women, but class is measured in being not finance, and Beyonce was trashy for that statement.

  274. Sharika says:

    I am a Beyonce Fan,but I think that she should have not made that comment.Many people in the music industry came out of nothing, and their music made them see better times.Everyone makes mistakes, and this is not something I expected from a person Beyonce potraits to be,classy. Maybe it was a joke, but there is defintely a certain degree you can go with it.Beyonce you are an idol, and you inspire me, but don’t be another Whitney Houston. Have beautiful talent, and let something mess you up!

  275. shawntel says:

    You all need to relax. No, maybe B shouldn’t have said that but we all know that it is TRUE. By now we have all seen the movies and heard all the related press and my God we have seen and heard Joe Jackson himself in the news. Now that’s and idiot. He’s been trying to profit on his son’s death and what a perfect time the Jackson,s to come up with a reality show. I don’t hold Janet responsible for her father’s behavior but this family is definitely class-less.

  276. MANNY says:

    What people fail to understnd is even if it is true we are not the Jackson’s nor is Beyonce so unless any of us are apart of that fmaily then we should NOT be talking about them!!! Beyonce and her family ain’t perfect either nobodies family is so before we start dogging the Jackson’s we need to be concentrating on our own families and our life not worried about the Jackson’s and their life leave this all between the Jackson’s and God it’s not any of our place to be talking about them I don’t care what the media and press say!!!!!

  277. MANNY says:

    Oops I meant to say family!!!

  278. MANNY says:

    Oops understand

  279. Casey says:

    Why do people keep saying leave Beyonce alone she is nice umm do yaw know her personally? NO so stop saying she is nice and anyways people get so mad when other people give their opinion on Beyonce, but they do the same to other people!!! Whatever Beyonce shouldn’t have said what she said and as far as her music goes it’s good, but it will never be like Michael, Janet, Whitney, are the other legends music they made REAL music!!!

  280. Maddie says:

    I love how some of Beyonce fans are saying Beyonce spoke the truth leave her alone and stuff, but had this being another celebritity who said this yaw know good and well yaw would be attacking that celebrity!!! Beyonce don’t know the Jacksons like that nor is she close to them for her to be saying what she said!!!

  281. Lady ''T'' says:

    Janet,take it as a compliment, it shows what hard work from the bottom can bring you. You have paved a way for sexy,classy,black beautiful women…And maybe Beyonce, did not mean it in a way to be mean.But Beyonce, you must remeber that the (JACKSONS) open the door for alot of you black entertainers. And we as people must pull together so we can move forward.I was taught(IF YOU CANT SAY SOMETHING GOOD ABOUT SOMEONE THAN, DONT SAY NOTHING AT ALL)….. May GOD continue to bless you both…..

  282. Cindy says:

    I agree with Lady “T” whether Beyonce meant it in a mean way or not she and the rest of these black entertainers of today need to realize the Jacksons opened the doors for them!!! They need to respect that!!! The Jacksons were not raised as rich people and they had a lot of issues, but they also have so much class, they respect so many that came before them, and they respect a lot of the artist out now that’s what I love about them!!! They never dissed anyone nor do they come out with songs bragging about what they have and saying they are the best like all these other artist that’s out now!!! Just remember to put God first and love yourself and others!!!!!!

  283. Zahara says:

    Whatever happened with this?

    This article was posted almost a year ago

  284. Fatima El says:

    Janet’s career is older than Beyonce is old. We are truly seeing the real Beyonce. She’s a jealous, cold, calculating young lady.When we were introduced to her through Destiny Child,She hid who she really was. Janet is not a “booty shaker,”she’s a dancer. Humility will carry you a long way.Mathew and Joe is the same kind of man. The only thing that seperate these men is dollars. Kelly is Mathew’s biological daughter. She lived with them, and had worship Beyonce.IMAGINE THAT

  285. PDixon says:

    This is the reason why entertainers need to stick to the script, especially those who haven’t been in the spotlight long. If Tina Knowles and Matthew Knowles had NOT been capitalizing on Beyonce’s good fortune–which they played a big part in her achieving so I’m not criticizing them–then Matthew would be on his job in Texas, possibly facing an early retirement package, not fathering children out of wedlock in Hollywood, and Tina would be still doing Black women’s hair in Houston not following Beyonce and Solange from California to New York. But, I shouldn’t gloat because Matthew made Beyonce eat her words about her so-called upper-class (hardly) family life in less than a year, but I will gloat because I saw no reason for Beyonce to tear down another black entertainment family, the Jacksons no less, in Vanity Fair of all F-ing places! What a silly little fool!

  286. PDixon says:

    CORRECTION:

    Beyonce’s comments were made in an interview that ran in ELLE not VANITY FAIR. I get them confused.

  287. kayla gibson says:

    aint like beyonce lyin. yll kno that they daddy made the jacksons five just for money. so shut up and get off beyonce case

  288. Sierra says:

    I love how people are saying leave Beyonce alone, but if somebody was to talk about her family yaw know yaw would be juming down people’s throat!!! Whether Beyonce was telling the truth or not is not the case it is not her place or any of ours to be sitting around talking about what went down with the Jackson’s we don’t know them personally live yaw lives not theirs!!!

  289. JoJO says:

    Beyonce is an a$s, she need to stop talking crap

  290. JoJO says:

    Bey, knows her father has done much worse than Joe! Why is Tina divorcing Matthew, Beowolf? Talk about your wacked out family, instead of worrying about the Jackson. Sit down!

  291. Triccinicci says:

    JoJO:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! BEOWOLF! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! This shyte is funnnnnnneeeeee!!!! I did NOT know Kelly is Beyonce’s half sister! OMG is that true?!! Now I’m not one for trash talk, but I’ve always felt something was up with the Beyonce is Goddess and the rest ah y’all worker bees, LMAO! Still, I don’t own a television so I have nair chance of letting Beyonce, HM, Brit or any ah the rest of them be shoved down my throat. Just for the record though, I’m for the old school ways – classy and kewl! JANET WINS, LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  292. ivy says:

    i think beyonce didnt mean no harm in what she said i think she shouldnt said anything about that period but i think this feud is interesting

  293. Faith says:

    Well maybe she meant in a harmful way maybe she didn’t, but there are plenty of ways she could of said this for example; she could have said it like this ” the Jackson’s daddy started them to sing my daddy didn’t” stuff like that instead of saying ” my daddy din’t force me to sing” And anyways yes their daddy got them started, but I’m pretty sure they wanted to sing too especially Michael nobody has a paaion for sining like Michael did

  294. Hope says:

    beyonce fans keep saying she is the best artist of this generation and alive!!! LMAO yeah except for the fact that in order for her to have and be the best she will have to top Michael, Janet, Madonna, Mariah, The Beatles, Elvis and just about anybody is who sold more records then her, more concerts, more popularity, etc, etc!!!

  295. jazz'myn says:

    Beyonce is wrong she is too old to be making childish comments about the family she most likely grew up listening too and her daddy was tryin to make money too. Her music is good and all but just because she came from a wealthy family dont mean anything talent is talent she need to get over herself. And whats is Beyonce music title Michael Jackson is still the King of Pop and she is what the “DIVA”(like really come on now)… Yeah think about it. And for everybody thats sayin leave her alone noo she need to leave the Jacksons out of it she grown she can take blows for her comment.

  296. D says:

    and by the way, how the hell does she know joe used his children? we are not the jacksons, we dont know what happened, she needs to go to church and ask god for some self-esteem and stop hating. Even if he used them, which I am not saying is good, the fact is, they turned out to be very successful people, and as they say, good things come out of very bad situations… now that mike is gone, good will come from this, the family will be a lot closer,they were learn what not to take advantage of in their own lives, grow, and follow mikes footsteps in making the world a better place. I am surprised she can smile on tv and talk highly about these people and suddenly pass a comment like that. If she is so classy, why would she pass such a comment? If she did not pass such a comment and it was mere fabrication, then I apologize for my comments but if she did, I mean every word I say. Janet needs good people around her, the problem is with so much success, alot of wannabees who get on top want to be around the best and once they get to know them, they turn around and say the worst things, unbelievable. It is a matter of time before u see things start happening, what goes around comes around…. all the best to her. I bless her and I hope J does the same if this is indeed true.

  297. Say What says:

    so people assume we’re like the Jacksons, but I didn’t have parents using me to get out of a bad situation.”

    Well if that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black, I don’t know what is.

Wait till u get to the age of janet and let where u will be. Jackson’s family are all legend while knowles family is all about beyonce. Shot up and learn 4rm dis think b4 u speak. Love u janet! Love kelly! Tosin from Africa nigeria

    I think a lot of people are over analyzing the whole Michael crashing P. Diddy’s party for Beyonce!!! I don’t think Michael was really trying to get with Beyonce he probably was just messing with P. Diddy!!He is playful like that and I’m pretty sure P. Diddy would have gotten Beyonce for Michael I mean he’s The King Of Pop!!! Anyways now on to the topic Beyonce should not be dissing the Jackson’s they are the reason why she is doing the things she’s doing now they opened a lot of doors for her!!! If it wasn’t for them her music and videos wouldn’t be played on MTV, VH1, or on pop radio!!!

  302. ayo naija says:

    beyonce said that??!! b, i am sooo shocked! what have you been sniffing?? what has jay been feeding u? or is this the ‘big ego’ u been singing about? i bet u it wont help ur credibility. the first rule of success is to respect the pioneers and stay humble. how dare you? i see you everyday aping MJ and janet and you have the guts? i watched you on grammys last night..whose ideas were those military style back up dancers eh?
    one last word b: u cant use the word “we” for the knowles family, like you guys have a real dynasty> you only have you< beyonce. forget solange , your daddy…thats crap. but the jacksons? seven individuals recognized worldwide for their amazing careers? aww b. you dissapointed someone.

  303. Lis says:

    If B actually said those words, I’m sure her point was they weren’t struggling financially when her family supported her while she pursued her singing dream.
    (Times had changed ~ Mom & Dad Black family dynamics sz & job status when she grew up)
    Wisdom, experience & maturity will cause her when speaking to media not to compare herself to anyone when conveying a point that might cause any undue uncomfortableness for anyone. Nope it’s not classy and we aren’t in a perfect world. She’s learning just Kanye and the rest of us.

  304. Gabe says:

    Money isn’t everything who cares that Beyonce and her family always had money when she was growing up!!! That’s not important at all yes the Jackson’s weren’t rich, but they are the classiest family in entertainment!! They aren’t out there doing stupid stuff!!! And when Janet and Michael did become rich you don’t see them flashing it in people’s faces or bragging about it in their music!!! BTW money does not make you classy the Jackson’s didn’t have money, but Michael got filthy rich when he became famous and he NEVER trashed talk those who weren’t rich!!!Beyonce was wrong PERIOD!!!

  305. Gracie_Boo says:

    B….I love you lots but…..she put her foot so knee deep in her mouth it’s rediculous…..point blank is that she needs to stay in her own family…her class should have taught her that….she owes the Jackson a huge apology because that was out of line…so out of line…and my girl Janet has class too….but…she should whoop her jaguar havn’ azz…..an im not putting down anyones success but seriously!?!?!?…a statement like that is unprofessional, class less, taste less and down right rude…

  306. ???? says:

    to Eric’s comment…..it does not matter in this situation what the hell the Jacksons are doing and how they live there life….and its not one bit of beyonce’s business…not one bit…and you went all off into some random crap….who cares….no where in beyonce giselle knowels do you see; jermaine, michael, janet, latoya, etc….so she needs to mind her own damn business….POINT BLANK!

  307. JENNY says:

    All families have issues!! And say what you want about the Jackson’s they are a classy family because they never got into any trouble, they never dissed anyone or their families. They’re not trying to make any money off of Michael their just keeping his memory alive and if they didn’t show up at any events then yaw would be saying they didn’t care, not to mention his money goes to a trust fund they aren’t getting any of it!!! They are doing everything because they loved and cared for Michael yaw don’t know anything about them for yaw to be saying this stuff!! Do yaw have proof they are using MJ’s death for money? Only God knows what’s inside the Jackson’s heart!!! Who are we to judge them like we are ole so perfect we all have issues!! I don’t care what any of you say Beyonce didn’t have to say what she said about the Jackson’s she could have given that interview in many different ways!! That’s how I feel period!!! She is not perfect neither are we!!! Just like Beyonce don’t have control over what is going on between her mom and dad the Jacksons’ have no control over what their father did to them!! Stop using that situation to say negative things about the Jackson’s!! Oh and btw no one is hating on Beyonc e it’s called having an opinion if you don’t like it then maybe you shouldn’t be on here!! Just saying!!

  308. Kim says:

    WTF does Beyonce’s career have to do with the Jackson’s please!!! She should not talk so much trash about a family she knew nothing about!!

  309. Kim says:

    All families have issues!! And say what you want about the Jackson’s they are a classy family because they never got into any trouble, they never dissed anyone or their families.

  310. Kim says:

    @Jenny well said!!

  311. Jenny says:

    Another thing I want to say I hate that Beyonce said “her father didn’t force her to sing she wanted to sing.” First of all the Jackson’s wanted to sing as well; if Michael and Janet didn’t want to sing they wouldn’t have lasted so long in the industry!! While Beyonce is talking she owes a lot to the Jackson’s because they opened up a lot of doors for her!! Beyonce is not the first artist to make pop music, have a lot of endorsements, act in movies, sing, dance,etc many others before her already been there and done that!! So let’s be real!! The Jackson’s were all about the music!! They made history whether people like it or not!!!

  312. Jeff Caldwell says:

    The Jackson’s father did not use them to get out of a bad situation. Joe Jackson was in a band himself. He had a family to take care of so he had to work. He saw talent in his kids and he capitalized on that, and created two of the biggest superstars in the world. Beyonce’s family wasn’t all of that. Her father quit his job and her mother had to be the bread winner while he used destiny’s child to get them out of a bad situation. I know her mother was getting tired of working and paying all of the bills. Beyonce doesn’t sound like she went to a private school, she sounds like she went to Crenshaw High and dropped out to persue a music career.

  313. Rose says:

    @Jeff Caldwell I agree with you people including Beyonce think they know the Jackson’s oh so well when they really don’t Beyonce shouldn’t talk because her family isn’t perfect either they have issues too!! Just because you grew up with money doesn’t mean you are going to be happy!!!!Your happiness is most important and if her music doesn’t get played 20+ years from now what’s the money matter (just saying)!!The Jackson’s opened a lot of doors for the Knowles family!! Not to mention the Jackson’s had two successful children while the Knowles only has one successful child!!! Beyonce nor Solange will NEVER be on Michael or Janet’s status they are true Legends and Icons whom created HISTORY!!!

    • kelly says:

      not only did they have two succesful children those two succesful children became legends, icons and music royalty. King and Queen

  314. Kaitlyn's MOMMA says:

    I think that everyone on here needs to mind their own business,until they find out what’s really going on and what was really said. I LOVE Beyonce’ she’s one of the best singers,performers,dancers and hardest working women in show biz today. I’m not saying that the Jackson’s aren’t. The only one who has really been the best at what they did was Michael. So everybody needs to get their facts straight then they can start talking bad about ANYBODY… PERIOD!!!!!

  315. Kaitlyn's MOMMA says:

    If anyone’s on are you gonna reply or what????
    I’m waiting for someone to reply on what I said…..

  316. Danika says:

    The Jackson’s are the best PERIOD nobody of today can top what Michael did so this is not even worth commenting on!!! The Jackson’s are a classy family!!!

    • Kaitlyn's MOMMA says:

      The Jackson’s might have class,but none of them today are doing what Beyonce does….. If they are such a classy family then how come their always in the papers and on T.V. for something. You never hear nor see any of Beyonce’s business out there. The Jackson’s have always been and always will be in the public eye for something or another. Michael was the best,but now it’s BEYONCE’s time to shine…Even though she’s been shining for a long time now. ROCK ON B,your the BEST….PERIOD!!!!

  317. LilLc says:

    NOW YOU ALL KNOW HOW THE MEDIA PUT WORDS INTO PEOPLES MOUTHS WHEN THEIR CARRER IS AT ITS PEAK AND WHAT EVER PERSON TO PICK ON BUT BEYONCE WHEN SHE HAS SUCH A GOOD REP INSTEAD OF YOU ALL BEING BASHFULL YOU NEED TO JUST IGNORE IT THIS ISNT YOUR LIFE FOCUS ON YOUR FAMILY EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES SO TAKE CARE OF YOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! if you want to speak to me personaly about my comment email me at elcid12_18@yahoo.$$m THANK YOU AND GOOD BYE.

  318. Cecily says:

    Are we really going to be bothered by what Beyonce said?! Come on now we all know that Michael and Janet are the Best that ever done it!!! Beyonce little comment should mean nothing!!! Let’s not make her comments’ our lives people because at the end of the day Michael is still the GREATEST artist to ever do it!!! Joe and Katherine should be proud!!

    • Lix says:

      Oh yes, I’m going to be bothered by what Beyoncé said. I agree with you that Michael and Janet are the best that ever done it. But Beyoncé needs to show some respect. And class… Just because she’s from an upper-class family doesn’t mean that she has any.

      • Lix says:

        What I mean is just because she’s from an upper-class family doesn’t mean that she has any class. Judging from her comments, she clearly doesn’t.

      • Cecily says:

        I understand what you mean Beyonce does need to show respect because the Jackson’s are the reason why her and Solange are singers!!! And they did open doors for their family!!!

  319. Cecily says:

    The Jackson’s have nothing to be ashamed of look where Janet and Michael are in their careers they are some of the biggest legends if not the biggest!!! Money didn’t get them where they are talent, creativeness’, art, drive, motivation, working hard, being themselves, etc got them to where they are who cares what Beyonce said!!!

    • Nancy says:

      i gree wit you, talent, creativeness’, art, drive, motivation, working hard, being themselves got them whr they are today….as for Beyonce, wud she b whr she is if she grow up like Jeanet?? i doubt!!!

      why do Beyonce date Jay? i mean we all know the dude is ugly…….its obvious for money…maybe she will dump him soon as she also have millions now lolest!!!

  320. Chris Dover says:

    I haven’t seen the video, so I don’t believe that Beyonce would make a comment like that. She is so sensitive and caring about everyone’s feelings. Don’t spread or act on hearsay.

    • Milian White says:

      This was not in a video this was in a magazine. If you can find the article you can read the words for yourself.

  321. Raquel says:

    Michael and Janet are the most caring, sensitive, shy, creative, original, artistic, hard working, musical genius’s, epic and humble artists in show biz so for anyone to diss their family need’s a reality check!!! I don’t know if Beyonce said this or not, but if she did let’s just say money isn’t everything it’s the talent, the way you care for yourself, helping others, showing all love/respect for others, not bragging about yourself and your personality that counts more!!! I know everybody thinks Beyonce is humble maybe she is maybe she isn’t I don’t know, but she is not 100% Angel herself she has her Diva moments like everyone else!!! Hey whatever if she said it let GOD deal with her we have our own selves to worry about!!!

  322. Gale says:

    Some people believe Beyonce said it some don’t I don’t know for sure, but I do know that this interview was taken in Elle magazine and I can tell they love Beyonce they had her on their cover a lot so I doubt they would twist her words around to make her look bad!!! Especially if they want her to keep doing interviews!!! Not to mention that I think 4 years ago when MTV aired All Eyes On Me and it was with Beyonc e she said something similar about the Jackson’s on there so I do believe she said it!! Whether she meant it in a bad way I’m not sure, but she still shouldn’t have said it!!! I don’t hear many people dissing her family so she shouldn’t diss others especially one’s that paved the way for her and her family!!!

  323. Gale says:

    Oops Beyonce

  324. Mishelle T says:

    She is a jerk. Who cares if you grew up upper class. I’ve heard you speak. I would be surprised if you even had a high school diploma. You speak of private schools. Was college included in this “upper class” education?

  325. JoJO says:

    Just wondering if beyonce, is happy about her new illegitimate baby brother, and her parents getting divorced!

    People, who throw stones, Beyowolf! LOL! :)

  326. mary says:

    I thought beyonce was a fan of michael…huh, well if she said something like that i feel sorry for her.there does seem to be a similarity in the two families like extremely talented kids, some more so than others,a very supportive mother and a very driven father. the both families had parents who split after success was achieved.In the words of MJ “it’s all abut the love.” so shut up B cause we love youuuuu any way

  327. Amira says:

    obody will ever be on Michael’s level or be close to him!!! His talent is wayyyy beyond any artist and Janet is also on another level!!! No family can create what the Jacksons’s have created at least in the music industry!!! For Beyonce to make those comments were plain wrong!! Michael and Beyonce are two different artists, but Beyonce’s father used her just like people are saying the Jacksons’s dad used them!!! And money isn’t everything so who cares!!! Although Beyonce is successful from her family Michael and Janet both are successful from their families not to mention Michael is the greatest, most talented, creative, humble, etc artist that we will ever have on this earth!!!! The only artist that even comes close to Michel is Janet because they dance alike and sound alike!!! The Jacksons are the most legendary family nobody can top them!!

  328. Amira says:

    Oops nobody and there are a lot of artists who are fans of Michael, but will never diss him or his family Beyonce needs to show respect!!!

  329. jeannette says:

    One thing for sure Beyonce will never be like the Jacksons. They are number one in everyone’s lives. I love all the Jackson’s, so ignore the ignorance of Beyonce. She can’t do nothing but shake her behind, she has a long way to catch up with the Jackson’. Keep the good work going Janet, I admire you and your brothers to the fullest. I will always love and care for Michael in my heart forever, and I will always listen to his music, movies and his love for the world.I really can’t get the death of Michael out of my heart, he lives within me forever and forever.

  330. Darslow says:

    First of all, I don’t think Beyonce is as talented as people make her out to be, especially compared to Janet or Michael Jackson. She’s pretty and has some incredible pipes, but that’s not what it’s all about. She should take note from her “supposed” idol M.J. This guy really cared about people regardless of how badly the tabloids attacked him and nearly ruined his career. Beyonce just seems greedy and attention-seeking. Why did she even have to mention the Jackson’s? They have done so much for the music industry. All human beings make mistakes and it’s just a matter of time before her dirt becomes public news. And one more thing, she needs to enroll in a basic English course during her so-called “break” from music. She could really use it.

  331. sheila says:

    I think beyonce acted acted as if she was way better than the jacksons (NOT!!!)i love that family 2 death and growing up i always wihshed i was a part of it. janet is my favorite singer i wish i could be her daughter and i’m 32 but their a great family and every family has problems even beyonces stuck up family don’t get me wrong her voice is great but her attitude is ugly i actually like solange better than her she has more class and spirit.

  332. B says:

    I think Beyonce needs to choose her words more careful. Her father did the same thing with her career and she can’t even see that. Janet is right Beyonce has a lot of growing up to do allowing J-zay to talk her into being friends with Rihanna after he hit that. That reporter said he made that stuff up about them what ever. I have watched Beyonce and other artist go up get their awards and think everyone but GOD! Like Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union judgement day is coming people better start getting their life togother. Beyonce went over to perform for Gaddaf’s on new year eve she was lucky they didn’t keep her over and rape her in that country. We are not friend swith that country.

  333. Amira says:

    Everybody thinks Beyonce is a classy woman, but I don’t see it!!!! Classy people don’t diss other people’s families!!! You would never see Michael or Janet dissing someone else family!!! Beyonce should be lucky these young girls like her enough to make her successful if it weren’t for her voice, and the fact that so many people think she is humble and if it weren’t for her making all these female anthems she probably wouldn’t be all that famous!!!! Let’s be honest Beyonce can sing, but her dancing is nothing extravagant, she sings about the same type of stuff it’s either a guy broker her heart or she is in love with him!!! Beyonce never sings about anything different she doesn’t make songs like “Heal The World”, “The Earth Song”, “They Don’t Really Care about Us”, “Stranger In Moscow, or “Man In The Mirror”!!! Beyonce is only making music for money and so she can stay popular!!! The Jackson’s are a classy family and people need to stop acting like they know them enough to talk bad about them!!! Beyonce maybe hot now, but her music is not timeless!!! I don’t see her music being played 20-40 years from now, but we should see!!! If GOD don’t come by then!!!

    • Kiana says:

      I agree, whoever thinks Beyonce is classy is wrong. Don’y get me wrong, I like her and all, but classy doesn’t parade across cameras and stages half naked, classy doesn’t sing songs about a mans d*** or “ego”, and classy surly doesn’t diss someones family!!

  334. Tamoka says:

    omg i reaaly am ahuge fan of monica nd have been for many years it has yet to come nd i know the album is giong to be great i cant wait til it comes out.. i will be buying it. she has such a beautiful and strong voice, god bless her with this lovely talent nd i hope all is well with the break up i know how it feels girl so ur not alone on this one….. God bless monica

  335. oops beyonce says:

    I HEARD WHAT B SAID IT DID SOUND BAD BUT SOMETIMES PPL DON’t THINK BEFORE THEY SPEAK. JANET IS CLEARLY UPSET AND IS VERY PROUD FROM WHERE SHE CAME FROM. TO BE QUIT HONEST JANET LEFT GARY BEFORE SHE WAS 5. I like both janet and beyonce- I’m sure beyonce is kickin her self in the a*s for this one.

  336. big says:

    I have not read all the comments. However, I am sure there are many that would agree that Beyonce is trippin. I really hope that her comments was taken out of context, or possibly she did not say that. However, we can all agree that the Jackson’s played a key role in paving the way for all the Beyonce’s of today. The Jackson’s along with many other hard working black families have worked very hard for Beyonce’s daddy to be able to drive a Jaguar. I hate it when people forget how far we have come. They (Beyonce and others) let their money and fame go to their heads and forget and we have overcome and we are still trying to overcome. Give that girl a clue! Janet should be pissed. While I am at it, I’m really not feeling Jay-Z at the moment either. Am I the only one that feels that Jay-Z dissed the We Are The World Project because he was not in it? They both are getting on my nerves.

  337. MJfonda says:

    I don’t think a great personality like Beyoncé would say something like that. And I think she has no reason to talk in that way. She has class and she knows how to behave in the public….at the end she’s just a very hard working woman who earns millions for doing a great job. that’s it.

  338. ieshabrew says:

    COME ON PPL…..DO YOU REALLY THINK BEYONCE WOULD SAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT???? THIS CAME FROM THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER FOR GOODNESS SAKE….THESE TABLOIDS IS TRYING TO FIND SOMETHING B/W JANET AND BEYONCE CAUSE THEY ARE 2 OUT OF THE VERY FEW WHO DON’T LIKE ANYONE IN THEIR PERSONAL BUSINESS/PRIVATE LIVES…SO OF COURSE THEY HAVE TO MAKE STUFF UP IN THEIR PROFESSIONAL LIFE….IF IT DON’T COME FROM PEOPLE MAGAZINE IT’S A STRAIGHT LIE….PERIOD!!!

  339. Avatar says:

    I’m sure Beyonce knows dissing somebody else family is wrong especially when they paved the way for her she’s probably feeling really guilty (If she’s as humble as everyone say’s she is I mean none of us know her personally to know what she is thinking when the camera’s stop rolling she might be very cocky) and BTW Beyonce said this in an Elle article the National Enquirer didn’t start this!!! So it might be true like I said we don’t know Beyonce like that to say what she would say and wouldn’t say!!! Beyonce isn’t dumb she knows how to act sweet when the cameras are rolling!!! So does other celebrities although some are bad at it!!!

  340. Kiana says:

    I don’t think she meant any harm in what she said, but it was an extremely ignorant comment. But Beyonce isn’t the brightest girl in the world, and she obviously has commented on the wrong persong, you go Janet. (If any of this IS indeed true)

  341. MJfan says:

    I guess this is why Beyonce’s music doesn’t touch me in any way. There’s no struggle or fight to speak of…just polished fluff.

  342. joel says:

    Oh come on, beyonce is a very classy person (remmember what she did at the vma awards with taylor swift – and she did that on her own accord). plus, beyonce is a fan of michael jackson, i bet this is just someone blowing just one thing bey said way out of proportion.

    • lilchelle says:

      please beyonce aint classy she a no clas h**.she aint no fan of MJ.she dissed his family when he was alive.all of a sudden she a fan when he pass.she a fake and a fraud.get a life.

  343. Baby S says:

    who does beyonce think she is?
    ok fine if u have massive hits and great cd’s that doesnt mean you should step on the music icons!
    the jacksons PAVED the roads for your likes to performs and be who they really wanna be
    “african-american” singers did not get big at all before the jacksons!
    hush your mouth hussy!…
    ok that last comment was too much, but honestly, doesnt she have any shame?

  344. Ruby says:

    There are a lot of celebrities who are fans of Michael Jackson, Janet and the Jackson Five, but they didn’t diss them Beyonce has a big head!!!! She may be hot, but she still has a long way to go the Jacksons have been made their mark in the music business everybody keeps talking about Janet and how she shouldn’t make music anymore they are right because Janet is a legend, she can retire if she wants to!!! With Michael and Janet it was never about money they have a passion for music which is why they will always be remembered now and days it’s all about who has more money, who can dress better, who can be more creative, who is sexier or the most beautiful it’s really sad these artist of today just don’t know!!! Now your music doesn’t have to have any meaning just a good beat there goes your hit!!! Michael, Janet, Brandy, Monica, Mary j. Blige, Alicia Keys, etc are some of the real few artist we have on this earth!!!

  345. kondwani singini says:

    Beyonce should no go about bragging like that. She must remember that music crossed the racial boundaries to enable her to be where she is now because of the true legend MICHAEL JACKSON. The reall star of the showbiz business. Look at Elvis Presley, he also shares a similar background with MJ. Music is not about money but talent, passion and hardwork.

    Do we need to tell the world that your profile as a star was consolidated because of the romance with Jayz. You are moving too fast lady! this may cost you your career.

  346. Go janet says:

    Beyonce is a very bitchy person! Watch on youtube her old Destinys child interviews. She acted like some big cow!!
    ughh. she fake.

    PS: That Taylor Swift moment was arranged by papa knowles!!!! It wasnt beyonce idea AT ALL

  347. lilchelle says:

    beYAWNce just mad cuz she will never be like janet or the jackson.she just a wannabe legend.she will never be a legend.like janet jackson is.she a overrated swagga jackin copycat who needs to sit her 35 yr old i wannabe 28 lame self down.she fake,she a liar,she a stealer,and a FRAUD.her stans need to get a life,they try so hard to be like this devil worshipper.she needs to take 6 years off cause ppl tired of this simple boring broad.

  348. hadriena says:

    1. At least Janet knows who her biological father is. Beyonce has a huge ego. She loves the fact that she’s the most successful one in her family. That just goes to her head. Janet was blessed to have a successful brother like Michael, may he rest in peace. It’s all about teamwork. Janet and Michael were a team, and so are Venus and Serena. Solange is a loser. If Solange were as talented as Michael Jackson that would kill Beyonce. It’s safer for her to just live in her sister’s shadow, unless she wants to get dogged out. Beyonce wishes she could take away Janet’s fame, money and glory but she can’t. It’s not always about her like she wishes it was. She got rid of the other two girls in the group. Why can’t she just be happy? 2. Solange can get little glimpses of what it’s like to be a star every now and then, like a commercial or a video, but that better be it. Her ego has humiliated her once again. All it does is give her a false sense of security. She acts like she’s so innocent. She’s not fooling anybody. That’s all game. I don’t see anything when I look in her eyes. She lacks soul.

  350. Lenta says:

    Beyonce needs to learn to keep her floppy mouth shut ! This girl has such a huuuuuuge ego, she loves herself so much. She will do anything to get above everyone else. She needs to get her head out her a$s! She did go out of her way to make that dumb a$s comment. She loves herself omg, she wasnt going to go to that photoshoot with janet and mary j blidge unless she was in the middle… and they said no janets gonna be in the middle. Urghh she pisses me off, shes gonna keep going on until she has no fans !

  351. LOvely Lela says:

    Janet Jackson is the most famous female artist there is and will ever be! Beyonce is jealous and tries to duplicate her. Beyonce has a bad reputation for being a copy cat and stealing other artist ideas. Beyonce is fake and tries to look latino but will never succeed. She is hard to look at … Janet is beautiful and she should confront the song thief!

  352. Clint says:

    well all i know is beyonce has a split personality maybe the one speaking that time was sasha fierce her alter ego. She needs to have a rain check before she speaks, same case with smeagle and gollum i bet sasha is already at home rubbing her gold and saying my precious…. (while drooling) :)

  353. miss dee says:

    wow i really feel like beyocnce really didntg mean to sat what she said … my hat goes off to the jackson family.. ima big fan of them … there mother in father raised respectful children… but us as people really need to watch what we say ton each other… miss janet is a good role modle in miss beyonce too .. i feel like she should wait for janet to come to her she needs to say she sorry to her

    • ZcOoDq says:

      ii b thiink she didnt mean to say iit like dat but she should’ve been talking about her anyway an if i was janet ill kick her black a**

  354. venomcouture says:

    I don’t think she intended it to be rude, it sounds like a clumsy way of saying that they didn’t “need” to use her to get out of a bad situation, it is not a direct insult to the jacksons- she obviously loves the jacksons and she loved michael too. These celebs are very carb deprived and if they are not cranky they might be clumsy.

    Her intention seemed to be geared towards saying that African Americans are not just able to make money by art and music but they are noble and educated people. S
    I really don’t think she meant it in a rude way.

    Beyonce does Not copy any one!! she’s original she is not even in he same category as Janet there is new and there is old. Janet will always be Janet she has been around longer. They are two diffrent types of artist that CNt Compare they are from diffrent times.new and old.Beyonce would not try and compete with someone who came before her.Beyonce has her own style,a large fan base and is beautiful, one day when she chooses to end her career she will be remembered with all the great women artists.I Cant think of a latina that she is trying to look like or who she’s copying..hhmmmm???!! thats funny at least she hasn’t had a bunch of surgery

  356. lashawn says:

    Beyonce needs to sit down somewhere. Let America get a break for a while……

  357. sharon carpenter says:

    i totally agree with Lashwan Beyonce does need to sit down somewhere because on the real she is a fake. I say this to say that i dont know her personally but what i see and hear on television is that she has baddddddddd breathe. And as far as Jay-Z goes she could have done better than that. “dont you think. Janet Jackson looks awesome with that type of hairstyle. I luv it. U go girl.

  358. loxi says:

    Did B lie? (((rolling eyes))

  359. Seibatu says:

    I like B and she’s one of my favorite artists of all time. But i do believe that she was disrespectful to Janet. I mean the Jacksons have been there longer and Beyonce need not boast about her upbringing or some thing like that because at the end of the day there is always some one richer and more powerful
    She really needs to apologise to janet..!!

  360. lemmy says:

    beyonce is a diva and owes no one an apology…….blacks should stop using lame excuses such as being from the ghetto in order to make it…….apart frm singers,ballers,rappers n general athletes…….ARENT THER OTHER SUCCESSFUL BLACK PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT FROM THE GHETTO

  361. Nora says:

    Beyonce is a strong female, i love her she’s great!, how is it bad to say she’s from upper class its true isnt it??? and plus I respect janet even tho i hardly listen to her music, But i could never hate beyonce. she’s my idol =]

  362. Nora says:

    Janet jackson is the fake one she’s the one who got a surgery for her nose and went all white beyonce is natural and janet can’t for SH*T change that.

  363. mrs.c says:

    this is like tara banks and naomi campbell when they had them go up against one another has if there was no room for two black models. good thing they saw it for what it was and did their very best at what they individualy do and was very successful at it. so janet and beyonce don’t put them in that bottle of liking one or the other. let hope them see the set-up and fix it among themselves. the media has a way of playing up incedense to make it ploay out the way they want to. when there is a slow time in the news they exploit things to benefit their job interest and only their interest. both famililies have wonderful stories that brought them to where they are today. one family with many children to care for the other with less mouths to fed, but no doudt they all have made tremendous sacrifices to achieve their goals. give them both the respect of having a dream and seeing those dreams come true no matter of easy for some or hard for others. i have enjoyed both families achievments. lol

  364. missmfknberry says:

    She didn’t mean any harm by it I don’t think perhaps she just didn’t word it right.then again when your a public figure you oughta think before you speak because things can easily be taken the wrong way

  365. Nancy says:

    i have her video from Destiny’s child performing the song “Lets Wait a while”, Beyonce said “when i was younger i was in a dance group, we called it The smooth dancer and were straight up Jeanet Jackson, we did rythm nation, we did escafe (or so), we did it all, and we used to win everything at the competition coz we learned it from Miss Jeanet”

    Beyonce need to grow up!!! being poor doesnt determine where u going, m so so proud of Jeanet…as for Beyonce, you can have all millions in the world but if u walk around making enermies u wont enjoy it b$$$h!!! grow up!!!!!!!!

  366. Nancy says:

    Beyonce need to grow up William, those are not words u just say whn u feel like it……i also grow up in a poor family, so does that mean my parents used me whn they take me to school so that i can help them 1 day? i wish she rots in hell one day

  367. Nancy says:

    Beyonce, grow up………..and pls try to put some clothes in your nxt dvd

  368. Nancy says:

    Jacksons will neva be compared with Knowles, Jacksons did Great. shame on you beyonce, look at Solange lol!!!

  369. ZcOoDq says:

  370. anderboo says:

    I love them both and fact is fact, Beyonce should apologize if she said anything like that. Miss Janet is the prototype that Bey created herself from, besides when she sang for Janet at the MTV icon awards with D-C, they sucked at trying to remix a beautiful song their way. Janet has been in it for a minute longer and opened the door for many many others yes including Beyonce. Besides Beyonces’ parents did help themselves to some of her money “in the beginning”. when Janets parents did they had 8 kids so who could blame them. Im sure Janet has blown this off by now because her Ego isnt so overblown. I do love them both though.

  371. Kerry Johnson says:

    Beyonce needs to hush her mouth, thats why Rihanna will dethrown her anyway

  372. shirl says:

    I believe beyonce is full of herself, She has no compassion for the Jackson Family. Her comments were rude and inconsiderate. So what if her Family were upper class WHO CARES!!!!!!. The Jackson Family is so amazing! Where they started from is interesting, it’s like a Cinderella story. God has been good to the Jackson Family. Their Family is still coping with Michael Jackson death. Dont mess with the Jackson’s I love them, they have been thru a lot. They are a strong Family. They are Icons May God Bless the Jacksons.

  373. shay says:

    NAW…BYE GURL beyonce a hater n janet is by far the best n def is orginal all beyonce songs sound a like n its sickning to hear sooo she need to go head wit that!!!!!!

  374. Sheena says:

    Beyonce is 1 of the best singers off all time.Janet is aswell but what facts show everyone is that it’s too much b$$$$$$t out here n life to make/say a response and it’s been taken out of context

  375. Jim says:

    Its a free country. Beyonce can say whatever she wants.

  376. Elyssa h. says:

    beyonce didnt mean it like that and janet jackson is too old to be acting childish like that she knows beyonce didnt mean it like that, that beyonce is telling the truth and janet needs to get over itand get ovr her self!!!!

  377. prettybrowneyes says:

    Beyonce meant exactly what she said! This chick is not as sugar sweet as people make her out to be!

  378. arianne says:

    i realy luv the 2 women,i think ds is actually between both of them.we are doing nothing but aggravating the problem.B and janrt i hope u guys sort ds out chao and good luck

  379. mc says:

    beyonce sucks all she does is scream at the top of lungs

    however she is a great proformer but still not like janet miss jackson if your nasty

  380. ReelTalk says:

    B did lie, but we have to understand that the Knowles family were struggling like the Jackson before fame; s$$t Beyonce lucky she had the looks but never the personality, without Destiny’s child she would be nothing. Destiny’s Child was to put Beyonce where she’s at now. As to Janet, yes she’s has surgeries, but B has also s$$t B aint nothing real on her, fake hair, nose surgery, breast lift, butt injections……….She was wrong though 2 fake

  381. Pauline says:

    Has Janet ever said anything bad about anyone. I have watched Janet perform since she was young. She has had her ups and downs but she came through. She does not bad mouth anyone to the press so why would Beyonce say something like that. Her life is good. All I have say is she shold think before she opens her mouth again.

  382. Sunshine67 says:

    I know this comment is 2 years old, but I wanted to put in my 50 cents.
    Okay, all of the name calling needs to cease. Beyonce does have her own style for her time, however, she like many artists has taken a little here and there from many artists in the past. Yes, including Janet Jackson, if not especially Janet Jackson. Janet Jackson along with Paula Abdul were among if not the first females to incoporate dancing of Beyonce’s magnitude, so heavily into their solo careers. As far as Beyonce’s comment, what she said was disrespectful. I do not believe she meant to be disrespectful, but it was. She basically said that their family work together which only she can attest to, but on the other hand she said that the jackson family did not work together (Mainly their parents). Now as far as Joseph Jackson pushing and or introducing his children to music, I believe was more of him trying to live his dream through them instead of trying to make a buck to get by. Joseph Jackson from my understanding in a band with his brother. Thier band was so promising that their dream of having a record deal seemed possible. Plus, Joseph Jackson was a crane operator. For an African American family during that time, I have to say – I believe they were doing pretty good to have taken care of children on one income and to be able to travel the way they did to get the publicity they needed to be what they became and still are today. Once they became popular, I am pretty sure he was getting some of the money. By the way, it was his money and time he spent to get them up to stars. Plus he was there manager. Just like any manager of a celebrity gets paid, so should he.

  383. sharon says:

    Beyonce meant what she said and even though it was true, it was not a good look for her to say that about the Jacksons, that she has copied and watched all of her life, there are many roads to fame. Her family may have been middle class but Beyonce’s mother looks like a witch and she probably dedicated Beyonce to the devil in exchange for fame and fortune, she sold her child to the devil and if you watch her closely you can see the demon in her, she calles it Sasha Fierce, a whole different entitiy from Beyonce, when she is not on the stage look into her eyes and see if you see a soul in there, it’s gone because Matthew and Tina sold Beyonce to the devil- Beionce is the name of a demon that controls the air and radio waves.

  384. brenda says:

    She just called Joseph and Katherine Jackson PIMPS. She implied that they(the Knowles family) were house servants, and the Jackson were field slaves trying to find freedom, the Knowles had class and the Jackson’s were just TRASH. You were colored before you were African American.A lot of black entertainers broke down barriers so you and others could get to the success that you have today. There ain’t no taken out of context, B has been in the entertainment business 10 yrs when she made this statement. She know when an interviewer is trying to pike you to say something stupid.Saying that the Jackson didn’t work together, what a crock. When is Solange’s next tour kicking off, is she getting a BET award, too?

  385. marquala says:

    janets the best even thougth i hate beyonce well, lets face it beyonce needs to shut uo

    beyonce, michael made more money than you ever will and yoy can not hold a candle to michael or janet. i think you wish that you were michael because i have seen the way that you act . honey you will neeeever be as talented and as unique as michael. by the looks of your moma she looks like a bar hopper and a chain smoker. so whos in the gutter now. if she managed you better youd be making more money than janet. your too big to be an entertainer, but you get that from yo momma too.

  388. mia says:

    beyonce sings well…and because of all the training cus she could not sing that well at first…also beyonce may have gone to a private school but she speaks like a “gutter rat” and has done so for years she needs coaching and that alter ego is either a demonic one or her excuse to open her legs and try to be sexy!!

  389. Eleonora Rollemberg Vieira says:

    Se a Beyoncé falou aquilo sobre a família Jackson e sobre a Janet Jackson com má intenção ou não, não importa. O que importa é que ela falou deles e criticou eles e isso é falta de educação e falta de respeito. E tem mais: A Beyoncé não pode falar tudo o que ela falou sobre a Janet Jackson, porque a Janet Jackson é uma pessoa maravilhosa, trabalhadora, meiga, dôce, humilde no modo de falar, simpática, amorosa, carinhosa, tem um coração enorme, é muito talentosa, tem classe, tem educação e é muito batalhadora.

    A Janet Jackson é muito fofinha!

    A Janet Jackson dança demais!

    Eu amo a Janet Jackson demais!

  390. polly says:

    beyonce your a joke. how much did yo moma have to pay to get you into the business. on the music awards you came out looking like a horse or something,even chelsa handler was making fun of you. your just too big and your not even a good entertainer.

NO one should never say s$$t about the JACKSONS i dont care if u’r sh*t is gold. JANET I DONT KNOW IF U WILL EVER READ THIS BUT WHENEVER U SEE THE B*TCH GIVE HER THE SLAP SHE NEVER FORGET.

  399. BEYONCE FAN says:

      HA ! If There Werent a Janet Jackson Youu Woulda Been Sayingg if it Werent For Beyoncee ..

      • suga says:

        you are an idiot. bey is not talented and is a make uo of several different artist. she is wack and so are you. janet willalways be an icon with classic hits. none of beys music is classic or timeless. just stank like her dancing. i once heard a true legend say you dont have to dress like a hussy when you have real talent. bey is a classic example of how music has been diluted, watered down, and mo good anymore. get yourself together and learn some math. beywould not exist if it werent for the jackson dynasty opening doors- you disrespectful bafoon. beyonce cant even speak well after all this time with all her private schooling. and whats more, she has enormous corns on her feet and she hates on any artist that can put her so called talent to task.

        • MichaelAngelo says:

          The funny thing is Janet and Beyonce are cool with each other. This whole situation was completely misunderstood. Beyonce is the best thing goin for the past 10 years. Love Janet to death but even she would agree. Beyonce is def an icon. Perhaps you should check the statistics b4 you try to talk about what she has or hasn’t done. Janet’s been famous for 40 years. If she isn’t iconic then something is def wrong.Beyonce isn’t talented? Name any artist out there that can do 1/3 of what Beyonce can do.

          • layshawn says:

            I agree with you beyonce and janet are friends, this entire story was blown up, and exxagerated, which gave people who hate on beyonce an perfect oppertunity to sound off, truth is beyonce has respect for janet jackson and now is bigger than janet will ever be, these are 2 different females with very different lives. and as a beyonce fan, this is’nt the first time or the last time anybody will try 2 feud another female artist against the queen B, because she has it all

        • LOL says:

          sound like somebody’s mad…don’t hate on Bey…she gettin hers regardless. a hater always makes me laugh…hahahaaha

  402. bjday4 says:

    I think it was taken out of context. Bey was just trying to explain that she had a lot of money growing up. So her father didn’t make her rehearse so much so they could have a better life like the Jackons but he quit his job so he could make her dreams come true and not the other way around

  403. Kinereth says:

    The Jacksons opened the door the likes of Bey. How arrogant of her. As far as I am concerned Bey is trashy, the Jacksons are upper-class…

  404. Troy says:

    beYAWNcy is nothing but an attention whore. She’s unorginal and a copy cat and has done nothing for the music industry in my opinion. I’m a very big fan of female singers, and female groups and they have been my obsessions for many years, Diana Ross and The Supremes, to En Vogue, Brownstone, TLC, but I’ve never been a fan of beYAWNcy and Destinys Child. Kelly and Michelle I like them, because I see that they are very down to earth, but have failed to see the person that beYAWNcy is. It’s unfortunate that beyoodles and ciara would make comments about the greatest female performer of all time, Miss Jackson. As everyone might not know, Ciara claims in an interview that she would beat Janet in a Dance off, which to me was very disrespectful. What’s worse is beyoodles claims that she went to private schools, yet in other interviews she claimed to be home schooled. Not only does she lie and pretends to be this perfect person, she interviews like she’s a five year old to throw people off so that the interviewers won’t ask her questions that will put her on the spot, such as the one about Single Ladies when she thought noone would know she stole the choreography from watching Bob Fosse’s 1960′s videos, then when she got busted she claimed to have been inspired by the video. She can’t act, can’t dance, can’t sing. what I respect and love about other female performers and female groups is their originality. Miss Jackson took us through periods of her life in her music from Rhythm Nation thru – Discipline and everything in between. From her childhood through her sexuality into womanhood, to where she is now. Unlike beyookie who is nothing but a fad, a person who jumps into things for the purpose of money and prestige, which is all signs of insecurity. She’s greed and manipulative like her daddy and very spiteful. If I where Miss Jackson, I’d keep it classy and move on with a career that only gets better, F*CK BEYAWNCY….She’s here today and gone tomorrow. If I see the b*tch I’d tell her fake lace front weave wearing funky leotard a$s a thing or two.

  405. Samvee says:

    If anyone reads what Beyonce said and was quoted on saying there was no harm intended, if Janet is upset thats only because the truth hurts. Not everyone is willing to sugar coat other peoples lives, it is true that Joe jackson used his kids to better his life etc, which in the long run helped bring them alot of fame but bad memories in the process, SOOOOOO Stop saying Beyonce needs to be put in her place, she said nothing that was disrespectful to the Janet. Its very childish that Janet even is taking it to heart, Bey merely stated the facts she was privaledged so they came into the game because of reasons other then money etc, while Janets family came into because of the love of music and they wanted to become wealthy by using their talents..

    • suga says:

      wow. youand beyonce are illiterate. i read what she said. and it did not stop there. and bey is soooo wack. no one would ever remake her music which is true test of talent while bey was trying trying to get jj to let her use hers. bey got mad because jj said no and thats why that hooker made those comments. so do your homework before running to her defence. i agree bey is insecure and a true hater

    • shell517nj says:

      lol. this is funny. he said she said through a blog, cat fight. lmao. ha!

  406. GregX says:

    How ignorant of Beyonce to say anything about another black family that had to work extra hard to get where they are today. Beyonce never went to private school, her country behind was HOME SCHOOLED because daddy Matthew took her out so he can use her to get rich. She said it in a TV interview Beyonce Stans so don’t come for me. And I doubt if Beyonce has a high school diploma. Bragging and comparing your family to another doesn’t make you any better than the next Beyonce my dear. Get a bit of talent and then come for Queen Janet.

  407. george says:

    Beyoncé All The Way Janet Jackson Shouldn’t Be Hating On Beyoncé For The Comment She Made,I Mean It’s True Why She All Pissed About It

  408. live_let_live says:

    lol, beyonce is very talented, unfortunetly she is not a good “personality”….she does not speak well in interviews , she tends to put her foot in her mouth, and sumtimes i think she even lies because she jus does have the ability to connect with people verbally, she is not like janet, or patti or mary,or even mariah. when they speak, we connect with them because they r genuinely down to earth….beyonce didnt mean no harm she just dont have that talent of verbal expression….

    • Brigitte says:

      Ditto on all of that! Beyonce is not well-spoken at all. She does not interview well at all. She can’t hold a candle to Janet, Patti, Mary or Mariah! Janet is definitely an icon…a legend in the making!

      Beyonce is just fad…she will fade away soon…

  409. JacksonFan says:

    Dont hate on Janet till u read the ENTIRE interview!!! Beyonce can go sit her and Sasha Fierce down!!! If Janet wasnt there female artist wont make it! BTW Beyonce is soooo two face how u gonna said their family is ur inspiration then bad mouth them?!? B. has NOOOO talent!!! she yells rather than “sing” all she ever good for is taking off her clothes and shaking her butt! Time u get real talent then u can talk! she said in numerous interview she was homeschooled! JACKSONS 4 LIFE!!! Put a ring on that bum

  410. happytwomuch says:

    I say Janet without her ther would be no Beyonce Janet is the the stuff

  411. KAYE says:

    BEYONCE REALLY NEED TO GET HER FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE SHE DISRESPECT THE JACKSON FAMILY. LOOK AT WHAT JANET DONE IN HER CAREER VS YOUR JOE CAMEL LOVING a$s. I’M STATING FACTS AND HERE THEY ARE.

    SOME OF THESE COMMENTS ARE STRAIGHT FROM Y’ALL ASSES.

    I see no one has YET to mention that Janet Jackson is not selling because SHE HAS BEEN BLACKLISTED FROM MTV AND RADIO AIR-PLAY BY THE FCC, FINED WITH $400,000. Since 2004 (Why doesn’t Justin Timberlake have to go through this baffles me). I’d say its kind of hard to sell when your main market, Pop music, is banlisting you.

    Since I last saw this thread, I’ve heard a few people say things like Janet fans supposedly don’t like Beyonce and like Rihanna instead (Janet fans don’t give a s$$t about Rihanna, and most of us like or are indifferent to Beyonce) because were threatened or some stupid sh!t, and even had the nerve to say that Rihanna and Janet have “a lot in common”. Bey and J don’t even have anything in common, or sing the same type of music.

    Fall back. Fall all the f$$k back.

    Janet has a lot in common with PON’ DE FOREHEAD? Wow. Janet has in a lot in common with someone like Madonna. Someone in her league. How F$$$$$g disrespectful do you have to be, how ignorant do you have to believe that Janet is all the way down there? Janet can sing. Yes, obviously she’s no Whitney, but she can sing. You don’t have to have a heart attack, scream, shout and gasp for breath and air to be able to be considered a good singer. She has a strong tone, she has range and she can obviously carry a note. Her voice is general “soft” but she can get loud if she wants to. AND she can sing live if she wants to — apparently lately, she doesn’t, but thats beside the point (lol). And obviously nobody can touch Janet in the dancing game (yes, that includes Ciara you CC stands; jumping and hopping your coochie booty only goes so far. Talk about lack of variety).

    The next time you fools want to compare Janet to hoes like Ciara or Rihanna, let me remind you of a a few things, since ya’ll seem to forgot.

    The Rhythm Nation 1814 Tour was Janet Jackson’s first worldwide tour in support of her multi-platinum smash album, Rhythm Nation 1814 before flying into Japan on May . The tour started on March 1, 1990 at the Miami Arena. The tour was a 9-month long venture. Criss-crossing the U.S.1990. The Japan tour was her first experience of foreign audience. She sold out shows in that country, most impressively, the 48,000-capacity Tokyo Dome with four shows, which still holds the record for the fastest sell out in the history of the Tokyo Dome, a record seven minutes. Then she also sold out shows in Hong Kong, her only Southeast Asian tour venue. She flew back to North America to wrap up remaining shows before flying to Europe. She performed in England, The Netherlands, and more with many sold out shows, ending the year with a bang.

    The Rhythm Nation Tour appeared in 25 countries.
    The tour opened with a sell out show in Miami.
    Beginning in March 1990, the Rhythm Nation Tour ran a full nine months and performed over 120 shows.
    The 5-date LA shows sold out in a record of 48 minutes.
    Janet performed on a five-story two-level $2 million stage of solid aluminum, complete with pyrotechnics, hundreds of lights, an illusionist, and a 200-pound panther.
    Janet was backed by 9 musicians and 6 dancers during the 90-minute shows.
    During the late 1980s, Pioneer signed contracts with major music artists, such as Madonna, Janet Jackson, and others, to release their concerts on Laserdisc only. To this date, the contracts are still standing, and the concerts have not been re-released on DVD by Pioneer or others. Although never released on home video, one of four sold-out Tokyo concerts was aired on television in Japan and is available as a bootleg online.
    Janet collected 25 cents from each ticket sold in some of her shows and donated an accumulated $450,000 to the United Negro College Fund for the Rhythm Nation Scholarship.
    In the end, the tour spawned numerous sold out shows around the world and attracting over 2 million fans. This made the Rhythm Nation World Tour the biggest debut tour by any artist in history. The tour grossed over $28.1 million in the U.S. alone and it became one of the ten best grossing concert tours of 1990.
    NOW GET DOWN ON YOUR KNEES AND REPENT & BEG FOR FORGIVENESS.

    • MichaelAngelo says:

      It’s great that she accomplished all of those thing sover the past 40 years vs. 15 years(Beyonce). Perhaps if you new the question that was asked to Beyonce in refernce to that situation, you would understand that she wasn’t trying to be disrespectful. The media has a certain was you copy pasting comments to make things seem like what they really aren’t.

    • LORINE says:

      JANET IS A LADY AND THE LADY FOR ALL TIMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      I TRIED WATCHING CIARA, RIHANNA, AND BEYONCE PERFORMING AND AFTER LISTENING TO A FEW SONGS LOST INTEREST.
      THEY ARE NOTHING BUT SCANTILY-CLAD SEX TOYS GIRATING ON STAGE WITH LYRICS WHICH ARE ALWAYS TOO SEXUAL.
      NOW, I ENJOY ALICIA KEYS…SHE IS MY GIRL!!

  412. diamond says:

    beyonce sings because it is her passion, janet herslf d=said that she feels she is in the wrong industry. if janet never became a singer beyonce would have still been one because it was MICHAEL not JANET who inspired beyonce.

    B NEEDS TO SHUT THE f$$k UP WITHOUT JANET IT WOULD BE NO BEYONCE AND I NO B AINT TALKIN MARRIED TO SOMEONE 20 YEARS OLDER THAN HER AND HE A UGLY MOTHERFUCKA THATS ALL I GOY TO SAY

  415. yoggi_j says:

    I love Beyonce’ but if she made the comment about MS JACKSON she needs to be schooled. I think MS JACKSON is the one to take her there! Handle yo’ bidness MS J

  416. Nikki says:

    Beyonce is a dumb overrated b*tch. She’s always looking down on everybody else. I’ll be glad when this b*tch gets knocked down off her pedestal. This broad is too damn dumb to even realize that when she said that, she’s also dissing Michael, who she claims to love so much, and the whole Jackson family. And while I’m at it, her daddy is really no better than Joe Jackson IMO. He exploited his kids the same way Joe Jackson did

  417. Avis says:

    Who ever is sticking up for Janet…BRAVO. Janet took up the music industry a mighty long way and still doing a good job of it. Beyonce is pretty but she don’t need to judge nobody if she hasn’t been what Janet has been through to get where she is today. So Beyonce, quit letting Sasha Fierce take over you so much. Find something else to do.

  418. Janet fan says:

    Beyonce need to be cancelled. Fakeness lasts a moment, but realness like Janet lasts forever. Quit Beyonce while you can. Stop letting Sasha Fierce take over u so much..gosh stop it.

  419. maia says:

    FIRST OF ALL, beyonce needs a publicist. Whatever her personal opinion is of the jackson family, she does not have the right to publicize it, especially the comments she make in ELLE magazine. It was rude, disrespectful, and showed that beyonce has alot of growing up to do. SECONDLY, the jacksons were raised in the 50′s and 60′s. Back then, ANY black family would have done the same thing the Jacksons did for a better life. I dont feel everything Jo Jackson did was right, but beyonce was wrong for the comment. THIRDLY, she could have kept all that jibba jabba about growing up with money because if her daddy was working in a steel mill and come home hearing beyonce sing, HE WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME THANG JO JACKSON DID. If Beyonce had 8 brothers and sisters like janet did, her daddy would have been pushing them for success just like Jo Jackson did. 9 KIDS!!!! Beyonce dont know what her daddy would have done in that same situation. Its easy to be well of with 2 kids,,,with nine its a whole nother ball game, ya dig? LAST BUT NOT LEAST, IF THERE WAS NO JANET JACKSON, THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO BEYONCE,,,RESPECT THAT BEY’!!!!

  420. LISA says:

    BEYONCE NEEDS TO SIT HER NONE SINGING a$s DOWN SHE COULD NEVA NEVA NEVA EVER EVER EVER SEE JANET U BETTA CHECK UR PEOPLE LIL GURL…….CAUSE MS.JACKSON U COULD NOT TOUCH…..U NEED TO WATCH UR MOUTH AND FIGURE OUT WHY UR HUSBAND WANT RIANNAH

  421. Lissamaiya says:

    Oh come on! Give Bouncy a break! If she’s too ignorant to see that Daddy Knowles pimped her just like Joe did MJ and the boys then she’s a s**t-filled can for real. She’s no better than Janet or anyone else who’s paved the way for her naked a$s. I wish someone would really see her for who she is. A greedy, attention-seeking snob who things her crap doesn’t stink. One day she’ll fall back like all the others and nobody will give a damn about Beyonce. So what she sang for Obama. So did a hundred other singers including Fergie (yuck). Anyways, Long live the world’s most famous entertainment family – The Jacksons.

    DON’T FALL FOR THAT. SHE IS NO A PRODUCT OF A WELL OFF FAMILY. DADDY WORKED AT COMPACT COMPUTERS, AND MAMA WAS A PRIVATE SEAMTRESS. WHAT’S SO GREAT ABOUT THAT, YET WHAT’S SO HIGH SOD-DITY ABOUT THAT.

  426. Willie King says:

    All i am going to say on this issue is this. Janet Jackson proved that as a jackson she would not and did not ride on the coat tail of her big brother Michael Jackson. She broke into mtv when most women couldn’t even get in the door and was on heavy rotation which then opened the door for other artist male or female……Now in the business over 30 plus years and many acheivments she is doing her thing.. Beyonce has to prove where she belongs as an artist….See janet didnt take off her clothes in the start of her career to prove what she could do she waited until her janet album to even show her stomach as beyonce started stripping immediately…so let’s just say this if that is what you have to do or be to make it then janet has surpassed all and beyonce has another 30 years to catch up with her.

  427. vanessa-vanessaisis says:

    I agree with most of the comments, if it were not for a group like the JACSON 5 AND JANET JACSON, none of the wanna be new school singers would even exist. I like Beyonce but what does she have to say about her own husband who used to sell drugs and the rest of the rappers who have done illegal things and are now making millions of dollars. so to make a comment like that is unnecessary.

  428. gwen says:

    poor beyonce what can you say; private school, i think not and if so your mammy and Pappy need to get a refund. you the dummest women i’ve seen in a long time and you just want shut up, stop talking you are embrassing with those umm and i’m honored and fake a$s tears when talking about tina. I see why you married the first jack-off that would tolerate your ignorancy.Girl you to old to keep hopping on stage and singing nothing but you can’t sing love ballards either. Little advice beyonce, only until you’ve experience true love, some hurt will you sell anything other your looks and girating those smim suits uniforms which mean tina still sowing for you.Leave janet and true singers alone.

  429. Chuck says:

    Well Beyonce just had her first album flop(took just a few years eh). Janet was on top from 1986-2003. Beyonce has maybe 4 memorable songs “CIL” “Irr.” “SL” and maybe well just 3 songs. Janet has well over 20.

    • Emily says:

      U make it sound like she is better than Beyonce! Ok, if u think Janet is so great,has she released any new songs after the year 2005, has she been standing up for herself! Besides, Beyonce wasn’t making her comment directly to her, she was just comparing it tom the Jackson five which Janet wasn’t apart of! Kids don’t even know Janet, they look up to Beyonce not her. When I asked my lil sister (who is eleven) if she know Janet Jackson or any of her songs she simply said no, she asked people in her school, they also said no. SO s$$k ON DAT!!!!

  430. William says:

    Everyone, I’m sure that this response has been taken out of context. Until you see the entire interview you do not know what lead to the answer. Janet paved the way for Becyonce, thats a given. I think Beyonce’s answer is simply pointing out that the public thinks that blacks have to sing, dance, or play sports to make money; Beyonce is saying that she sings because she wanted too, that they didn’t need the money to survive and they had a more prosperous home than perhaps that Jacksons may have had. I’m a Janet and a Beyonce fan…and my level of intelect isn’t a factor! Lol!

    yes it is. you are an idiot. janet been rich since good times dummy. and beys father said in an interview how they were about to loose their house and his wife wasleaving him. you are dumb. the jacksons had money from the time michael was 5. beys family didnt get money until her dad pimped her naked a$s out. so cut it out. destinys child was trying to make it for years and no one even knew beys name until she took her clothe off. and i for one will be glad when she sit her country a$s down some where. she is pretty but soooo not talented.

    I totally agree with Suga. Janet is pretty with her real hair, which I’ve never even seen beyonce wear her natural hair once. Janet is talented with her clothes on.
