Pride Magazine Tries To Clean Up Nia Long’s Statement About Beyonce Not Being Able to Act

- By Bossip Staff

Remember two weeks ago when Nia Long was quoted talking a bunch of yang yang about Beyonce????

Pride magazine is now saying that her words were twisted:

In response to the media coverage around Pride Magazine’s Nia Long cover story, Pride Magazine would like to apologize for the fact that editing of the final article may have left Nia’s comments open to tabloid manipulation. As Europe’s premier publication for the woman of colour, Pride seek only to celebrate the achievements of celebrities such as Nia Long and Beyonce Knowles, and hope no offence has been caused through the media speculation.

SMH. She knows she meant that sh*t.

    TOO LATE NIA, YOU SAID WHAT YOU SAID…SISTERS NEED TO STOP HATING ON EACH OTHER SO DAMN MUCH!

  • Speaking the truth...

    The magazine made the retraction not Nia.

  • nobody cares

    How is it hate when it’s fact? Hate and swag, two words you idiots use recklessly. Bey cannot act, nor can many of these other singer/rapper/pop stars they keep booking, but wait, people 23 and under don’t care about or know what talent is…

  • Meggie Letterman

    Apologize?! That’s weak as hell on Pride Magazine’s part! Nia Long wasn’t lying on Beyonce, she’s NOT that good of an actress—she has her “moments of shine” but that’s bout it. Singing is her are, not actin’!. I’ll go a step further, those new designs of HOD are more like “House of Dead ” looks cheap and wasted. Good thing Nia hasn’t apologized and she bet not! Say what you mean and MEAN what the hell you say!

    @nobody care

    those words are def used WAY too much…people 23 and under look at the Amber Roses of the world (people that made a name for doing jack) and think hey I can do that too I don’t need a talent…if the 90’s are coming back hurry up cuz this era is WACK!!

    @speaking the truth…right

    Nia was right. Bey should stay in her field – performing on stage and singing. I’ll give her – her props for doing that. She can’t act and the acting jobs should go to other black women who are in the acting profession. Why does BEY have to be rammed down our throats all the dang on time.

  • just passing through

    I have always liked Nia Long, she tells the truth..

    Noone is hating on beyonce. She’s doing her thing and I am happy for her. She’s becoming a tad played out from over-exposure, but she defintely can’t act…She’s getting worse as she gets older, Last Temptation, anyone or Carmen- hiphopera, anyone??

    Beyonce could NEVER act, but I applaud her success..

    I hope to see more of Nia in the future, SHE can ACT. She’s aging gracefully, as well..

  • Wanjiru®

    Nia Long was 100% right, no need to back track on that.

    Beyonce has absolutely no skills in acting, FACT, PERIOD. She needs to stick to what she does best which is ……………..ummm………………. ummm………………………*crickets*………

    @HotCoko79

    Amen @ “The Amber Roses” of life tryin’ come up with little and NO talent at all…thinking they’re going to LAST a LIFETIME. THey all need to realize, it doesn’t END well. Most times when it’s all said and done, THEY end up with less than they started off pimpin to get.

  • just passing through

    BTW: Anyone see the new pics of solange rocking the baldy, look-a- like, want to be amber rose??

    She looks better than wearing ALL THAT WEAVE!!

    Beyonce should try it too..

    Anything looks better without horse hair..(just a thought)

  • Moreaces

    Truth be told, Bey could use a acting lesson or two.. Anywho, the girl is getting paid, so more power to a sister..

  • Bk

    BEYONCE IS NOT THE BEST ACTRESS BUT NIA SHOULDN’T HAVE TRY TO CALL HER OUT LIKE THAT.AND SHE KNOW SHE MEANT WHAT SHE SAID.

    BUT I AM A FAN OF THEM BOTH

    Speak on it. People need to stop calling people haters just because they don’t share their opinion. WTF? And let’s add the word “bitter”, which seems to be used against black women on a regular here.

  • All day everyday!

    Beyonce can’t act if she said it who cares, it’s the truth beyonce needs to stay off the big screen.

  • Butterscotch

    Nia was honest about how she felt. If the magazine wants to retract, then that’s their business. I sure hope Nia does NOT, since she was right.

    BEYONCE CAN ACT SHE FOOLING ALL HER WORSHIPPING FANS!,..GREAT ACTRESS,…NIA IS A REAL TALENTED ACTOR ON THE OTHER HAND …YOU CAN FEEL HER CHARACTERS,..YOU BE READY TO GIVE HER A HUG AND TWIST HER AZZ OUT!

    Why is that who is Beyonce to never here about herself that is why she is so spoiled… Not everyone considers her to be the best at life and everything else… If she wants to act then act but this manipulating film industry needs to go after some real talent(acting that is)…

    lol…. So true I feel you on this one only people who want to blind will follow Beyonce for no real reason at all… Only people who love her above themselves are ready to fight when people speak against her… Only people who think she is the ultimate image of a human being hold her so highly…
