Beyonce is one hypocritical b-tch! Keyshia Cole is RIGHT. How can you go from “Girls rule the World” to “I’m so crowned bow, bown down b-tches!”….and don’t give me that alter-ego Sasha Fierce crap either. On top of that, the song sucks!!

Man, I just heard that mess on the radio. The only thing that sounded good was the back-up rapper and sometimes the beat. Bey sounded like someone coming up in the hood with their first track. Her voice at times was as husky as a man’s and she was half on the song at that. She took a long break to come back with this mess. 5th grade education, I tell you.

People are just people and we all have to be responsible for our own character. But my opinion why dose this character attract our president and First Lady.
These type of lyrics have high ratings because so many agree with this very limited thinking and choice of words. And we have to admit that some of her music is ok.

I don’t like or dislike the song. I can say though if you are not from Texas, specifically Houston where chopped and screwed music originated, you will not understand this song at all! Bey just bringing what we’ve been listening too down here to the mainstream and more power to her

I’m from Texas, and honey (lol) that was not chopped and screwed. Paul Wall and the rest should sue you for saying that. It was more like hot and mess.

I wholeheartedly dislike women like her – women who think that everyone’s jealous of them. They’re so deluded that they think that anyone who dislikes them dislikes them because they’re jealous and not because they, themselves, are insufferable. This attitude is part of the reason why I don’t participate in social media – practically every female on my feed (years ago when I had a facebook account) would post haughty comments that praised themselves and criticized everyone else. It’s disgusting. And while I think it’s important for everyone to love and appreciate themselves, especially women (the more self-loathing gender), why can’t one love oneself and others as well? I don’t think that the beauty, style, intelligence, etc. of another woman takes away anything from me. Why should I attack her? Plus, we should be building each other up, not tearing each other down (people in general, nor just women).

@Rachel Do you personally know Beyonce? How do you know for sure that she thinks that ALL women dislike her because they’re ALL jealous of her? On the other side, if I happened to meet someone like you who wholeheartedly dislikes people they don’t know because they appear insufferable to them, I would rightfully label you an envious woman.

She does it yet again…every one claims to hate it soo so much yet the views are steadily climbing, and the topic is steadily trending lol Bey sure knows how to make the haters feel the heat. Bey is only stating fact….THAT SHE INDEED RUNS THE THE GAME. AND ANYONE THAT THINKS THIS BEAUTIFUL AND TALENTED LADY IS “PLAYED OUT” …YOURE CRAZY. ON 4 THE HATERS WERE SAYING SHE WAS TOO SOFT..NOW SHE COMING FOR THEY NECKS AND THERE AFRAID AND NOW SHE IS ‘TOO HARD” LOL JOB WELL DONE BEY.

Respect for her a thing of the past.

Did not have much respect for her before, now I have none. She is getting almost as bad as that piece of crap Kanye. Dirty dog that he is.

This song is pure trash. The beat and the voice don’t go along at all! I would’ve expected something like this from Rihanna but not from Beyonce. I feel like Bey is trying so hard to stay popular with the younger generation now that Rih seems to have them all.

This sounds horrible. Beyonce can’t pull off this kind of raunchy, hard sound, now Rihanna could but that’s because it’s her type of arena. Beyonce is more R&B, she’s better at that. I can appreciate her trying a little diversity but…no…not this. Beyonce should know by now what sound works for her. Even her little label sister Rihanna wouln’t have put this out and she does some of the hardest and most horrible sh*t, I’ve ever hear but she never goes beyond her range while diversifying. We will never hear Rihanna do a Halo type song, and Beyonce should stay away from crap like this. I’ll wait for the next single.
