Beyonce had her best face on during the ‘TODAY SHOW’ on NBC today where she performed. The only thing the public may not be tired of with Beyonce is her crawling on the floor and showing her backs in some tight jeans. WE HAVE SEEN “WHAT YOU GOT”, OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN! Time for some fresh faces and talent.
Beyonce on jealousy rumors and Jennifer Hudson getting all the shine for DREAMGIRLS via People Magazine:
“I knew that the character that I played wasn’t the star,” Knowles, 25, told reporters on Saturday about knowing full well that her Diana Ross-esque role of Deena Jones was less meaty than Hudson’s part as Effie White – a part that is already getting Hudson Oscar buzz. “She wasn’t the underdog. She didn’t have the struggle and the pain and the dramatic scenes that Effie had, and I was fine with that.” Taking the role was about proving herself as an actress. “I’m already a star. I already have nine Grammys. Everyone knows I can sing,” Knowles said. “I did this because I wanted people to know that I can act and I can play someone so different from myself.” “Because I’m a star they just automatically assume that I’m not humble enough to sit down and take a back seat, which I am.” But the R&B star did admit that she would have liked to have sung Effie’s song, “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” a showstopper that, in large part, helped get Jennifer Holliday a Tony Award for best actress for the original 1981 Broadway version of Dreamgirls. “I mean,” said Knowles, “I wish I could’ve gained 20 pounds and played Effie.” Asked if she’d really have packed on the weight for the part, Knowles said, “Yes. I absolutely would have, but Bill (Condon, the movie’s writer-director) didn’t even believe that I could be Deena. So imagine if I would’ve said, ‘Bill, I want to be Effie.’ ” And Knowles has high praise for Hudson’s portrayal of Effie. “Jennifer Hudson had such a pressure, first of all, never being in a film and never have done an album and still having to live up to those expectations,” said Knowles. “She did incredible.”
Hmmm, I guess Beyonce didn’t want to be the first Black woman to win a Grammy and Oscar after all. SMH at Beyonce undermining Jennifer’s shine by suggestingg their different roles are the main reason Jennifer is getting the buzz and not her.
Beyonce watching Jennifer Hudson during filming: Damn, this bitch is good, wonder if I still can cop that Oscar, going to call Mama Tina on this one.
