Clip Tidbits

Check out video of Beyonce and Mama Tina on "The Early Show" this morning: Of course they promoted Lil Sis Solo. Not sure if having mama and sister promote you on the "Early Show" plays into the "I'm not my sister" and "I'm separate from my family" image you've been pushing Solo. But what do I know... And here's a few preview clips from "I Want To Work For Diddy". It premieres Sept. 1st at 9pest and here's what's going down: It’s a historic day for Sean Diddy Combs because he’s getting his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The entire group of applicants jet off to Los Angeles. This mission tests the assistants’ ability to handle Diddy’s real public and private life. Their assignment: to take care of the most important people in his life – his mother, and Kim Porter, the mother of his children, for this momentous event. Prepping his family for interviews, the red carpet and the huge celebration proves to be no easy task for our teams – as they struggle with the requests, the entourages, the kids, the wardrobe, and of course – the urgent requests from Mr. Combs to make sure the event goes off Diddy-style – without a hitch. The pressure proves too strong for some, and the elimination proceedings erupt in a series of accusations, tears and drama. Here's the preview clips with Mama Janice and Kim Porter:

In Vegas Solange didn't wan't

In Vegas Solange didn't wan't to be tied in with 'family or her brother in law's businesses'. Today she's giggling at a white reporter's inane questions just after her MOTHER and SISTER have been gushing about her (presumably the same family members she didn't want to be tied in with). Is this girl for real? She didn't tell this presenter that her introduction was unprofessional did she? I suppose people will do what they can get away with but Solange emerges looking rather stupid and idiotic. Love Beyonce though! She looks fab!

[quote comment="187789"]Kelly, Michelle, Beyonce and Solange are ALL signed to Music World. Yes, Solange "spoiled brat" attitude is just an act. An act to seperate her from Beyonce. It worked for Ashley and Jessica, and Matthew took notes. I'm LMAO @ how Solange people's are doing major damage control. Matthew isn't the reason for Kelly and Michelle's lack of success but there is no denying how much extra time he put into his daughter's career. It funny that somebody made the comment that it's Geffen that's pushing Solange, yet let Solange tell it, her father and label want her to be like the other pop stars and she has to fight to get them to let her be who she is. Once again, her fake image is put on blast. She wants people to believe she is this struggling artist like the other Neo-soul artists and it's not working. Solange doesn't want to live in others shadow yet her mama and sister are on a popular morning show promoting her album and trying to shove her down others throats. Diddy care about Kim so much but he can't stay faithful or comment to the woman. Whatever. These celebs are full of shit.[/quote] dammit I co-sign

[quote comment="187411"]It amazes me how they promote the hell out of Solange but Daddy Mat NEVER promoted Kelly or Michelle this way. Solange has been thrust down our throats over the last few months. Where was Kelly's promotion (she actually had a good CD)? SMDH![/quote] And thats exactly why Kelly shouldve moved on to bigger and better things instead of trying to be loyal to a family that were only looking out for their best interest. Business is business Kelly.

I guess everytime Solange performs her family can not be in the same building or area. Get over it. If Kelly was to perform and B. was to show up it would still be a problem. Stop HATING so damn much and just be glad another black woman is doing something with her life and that is becoming more successful than you DUMB fools would. Ya'll didn't grow up with the Knowles so quit acting like ya'll know every damn step and breath they take. Hate on.....since ya'll don't have anything better to do. I love the interview they all did and of course her performance was GREAT!! Get a life Bitches!!!!![/quote] Now that's being a great stan

NEW YORK STATE OF MIND You

NEW YORK STATE OF MIND You hit the nail on the head. It's not the Knowles, it's the recording industry, which is quickly imploding. That family needs to stick together in order to promote each other's projects. I am really pissed at Solange for going off on the reporter. I think there's something up with her. I think it has do with the fact that she's surrounded by A-list celebrities and she thinks she's one too. I WISH Beyonce was my sister. I would screaming that from the rooftops.

[quote comment="187429"]Wygba I previewed Kelly's CD on BET.com & loved it so I bought it. I loved the CD. I was going thru a hard break up so it hit home for me. I am not knocking Solange. I know that she writes for Kelly, Michelle, & Bey. And, I like the songs that have leaked so far (e.g., 6 o'clock Blues, Fu<k the Industry) but I just want them to treat all of the girls the same. Solange has been getting MAD promotion, what about Kelly & Michelle?![/quote] Thank you, I thought I was the only 1 that noticed that. I mean, I'm Solange fan and all, but I really think it's messed up how Papa Knowles just sh!++ed on Kelly and Michelle's projects. But it shouldn't come as a suprise that his offspring, get the better end of the promoting and success stick.

JAZZYCHiCK: The name Solange

JAZZYCHiCK: The name Solange is a French name and they keep stressin that. They say its part of their "Creole" heritage. I dont think they want to pronounce it differently, I think they cant.

[quote comment="187523"]so just because i put some perspective into this i have to be a member of the knowles family? some of you all need to realize that not everyone has to think the way you do. I truly wish that the girls will drop mathew just so you all can see that it is not all his fault. some of you are in here talking about letoya and latavia but if it was easy and management was the problem, they shouldn't have had any trouble being successful when they finally did get new management on a new record company or do you guys not remember their attempt to make it with their group anjel? It is not easy to get record company to spend money on you and if artists as big as beyonce are having to pay for their videos, things are not going to fair any better for the rest[/quote] I agree it is very difficult for some of our most established artists to sell, so it is extremely difficult for others, like Kelly, Michelle, Ashanti, Eryka Badu (well, anyways), Musiq......oh, Jaheim and the list goes on. So to blame management *(Mat Knowles) is unfair. In the world of download and youtube, who buys cds anymore; not many people and let's not forget the booleggers. Kelly had a good chance of promotion "I told ya;ll I was gonna bump like this" had great potential and took off well, but she did not capitalize with a great follow-up and from there it all went down under.......Michelle is boring and Solo is crazy as hell, that leaves Beyonce and she jumped in with her whole body. And sometimes its about timing; don't hate the playas, hate the game!

I'm starting to think maybe she is acting this way for publicity. Maybe she isn't a talentless schizophrenic spoiled brat like most of us seem to think. We'll see how her record sales do and determine if it backfires or not.

I dont give a fuck what

I dont give a fuck what anyone says, Solange, Michelle, Kelly, Letoya Luckett, ARE ALL GOING TO FLOP HARD ON THEIR NEXT ALBUMS! NO ONE GIVES A FUCK ABOUT THEM! NO ONE! FLOP CITY! ALL I WANT TO KNOW IS.... Why is it that Beyonce gets all the FLACK like this is something new! Not even because I'm a fan BUT lets take a trip a trip through the past shall we? Diana blows up, no one gives a fuck about Mary Wilson Michael Blows up, Jermaine FLOPS Justin BLOWS UP, JC FLOPS Beyonce Blows Up, Kelly and all of them flop BUT Now its conspiracy? WHY? Why is it so different now? I'm not suprised, from day one I saw Beyonce was gonna be the Star, Not because of her Father but Because, She has that WOW Factor, that IT Factor, that Work Ethic! Same goes for Michael, his brothers were made into a group BUT Joe felt that Mike was too young, BUT it was Mike who proved himself and made the Jackson 5 the Legends that they are! Beyonce has that same Drive! Matthew only gets 10% of these girls check, stop trying to make him out to be Berry Gordy or Quincy Jones, because he dont hold weight like that! Another Question: Michelle's single has been on I-Tunes for over a month now, Why arent yall buying it, if you feel she needs the support!

Out of it, You completely

Out of it, You completely shut down the conversation. Thank you for bringing some logical information to this played out topic. I can't wait to see what Beyonce does once she's done with her Columbia contract. Because as famous as Beyonce is, her concert and videos look mad cheap. She DESERVES to have a budget that reflects her status.

The Knowles family are out

The Knowles family are out for the Knowles family only.....keeping they money all in the family. In the midst of the group's rising success, Luckett and Roberson sent a letter to their management stating they wanted their own manager because of the increasing lack of communication from the group's manager Mathew Knowles (who is also Beyoncé Knowles' father). The pair said they never wanted to fire Knowles, but they did want to secure outside management to represent them fairly. Soon after, Luckett and Roberson found themselves on the outs with Knowles family and the group they help create. If Kelly and Michelle try to leave they would get the same treatment as the other girls. I think they are scared to leave....even Wendy Williams said on T.V. Michelle should fire Mathew.

I like all the Destiny's

I like all the Destiny's Child members. They are equally talented. Each of them have their own sounds. I really like Michelle's voice in that Survivor song and a few others. As to why they are not promoted the same...who knows whats really going on there. They were actually one of the few groups that I thought could have had excellent solo careers after the whole group thing!! Solange...Her songs are good, but she really needs to calm down. There is nothing nice or appealing about somebody who is talented but abnoxious. Its not cute and it doesn't make you stand out more by always talking about "Not being compared to your sister". Please..I am sure a lot of people wouldn't even give you the time of day if you weren't "Beyonce's Sister". There are a lot of people who are far more talented than she is "Chrisette Michelle/Janelle Monae" and a few others that could run/sing circles around her.. But do they get the same amount of coverage/air time/interviews that Solange gets? NO...So she just needs to sit her ass down and accept graciously what has been given to her. Being associated with Beyonce isn't such a bad thing..She knows it.. Also I am sure she must have known about that Beyonce/Mama Tina interview beforehand and probably did nothing to stop it. So....Enjoy the attention while it lasts..It will be over soon. Beyonce is bound to drop another album soon...Enjoy it!!

Matthew owns Music World so Michelle and Kelly should be promoted and managed properly, but they're not. Solange is a new artist to Geffen and alot of times labels dont want to put that much money into promotion for a new artist but bets believe Matthew fought hard for her. Like she said, "I have my daddy wrapped around my finger"[/quote] correction, kelly and michelle are signed to COLUMBIA. the same record company that made beyonce pay for her own videos after irreplaceable although she had sold more than anyone on that label that year. the same record company that got rid of all the people that used to be there with beyonce, kelly and the girls and the same record company that is in major debt. If the record company was even treating beyonce right, she wouldn't have had to lie to them about b-day. It obvious you are one of the many people who does not know how promotion works. Mathew can book kelly and Michelle on any tv show and magazine shoots he wants, but guess what? If the record company does not fund the promotion, it ain't going to happen. A music manager's job is to help with negotiating a good recording contract (I'm sure kelly has GREAT recording contract because despite her luckluster sales, homegurl is still getting ANOTHER album and is dropping thousands of dollars in one night for other people's dinners and trust with kelly's sales, most record companies would have been dropped her), book them on shows and business deals related to music. Like I said before, Mathew can book them where he wants but it is ultimately the record company who has to put out the money for costs such as airfare, hotels and equipment and if they are not willing to do that, he can't do anything about it unless they want to put out their own money. If Mathew couldn't get columbia to pay for the rest of beyonce's videos and beyonce had to go find her own sponsors for the tour, what makes you think kelly and michelle are going to be treated any better? Columbia is not a good record company to be on right now, check the charts and see how many artists for columbia are on there and I will tell you now, there aren't that many people. As a matter of fact, they were in big trouble last year because all their singers got NO promotion (kelly even had it better than them) and most of them flopped hard. Mathew can't do anything about kelly and michelle until they are done giving columbia the amount to cd's they owe them. I think bee's cd coming out will be her last, kelly's next one will be her last, I don't know about michelle. Solange is with a record company that actually BELIEVES in her. The president of Geffen records actually escorted her to the BET awards and has been seen at many of her functions which is why Geffen is putting out the money to promote her. Now does mean that the promotion is going to work? we'll just have to wait and see and if they are poor like early numbers are indicating, does it mean that Mathew is to blame too? I know this is really long and I have no hostility towards so please do not come back cussing me out. I want to have a mature discussion. Don't get me wrong, I am by no means a big Mathew fan but I think people credit him way too much when it comes to kelly and michelle's failures and I also believe that they credit him way too much when it comes to Beyonce's success. All the endorsements bee has are not negotiated by him, i believe they are negotiated by steve stoute who happens to be jay's business partner.[/quote] Is that you Solange/Beyonce/ Mama Tina/Matthew? That's a lot of details...WOW...LMAO

please disregard my spelling

please disregard my spelling and grammar errors. I would like to add that it's not like Kelly is flopping all over the place, she's treated as if she's a rockstar in Europe and especially the U.K. It's her niche and she should stick to it. Michelle had two number 1 gospel albums that sold extremely well. To me that was a niche, I don't know why she decided to stray away from it except she wanted to do something different

I have spent time out of my day reading about why Kelly and Michelle don't get any love from Music World. For the record, last year, Kelly sang on BET Music Awards when her album dropped(unlike Solange, Ashante,Deborah Cox,Monica,and so many more deserving/undeserving artists); Kelly was one of the feature artists at the 2007 Essence Music Festival main stage(unlike Solange who was relegated to a small back ballroom);Kelly made all the premiere morning and night talk shows, i.e., GMA, The View-where she co-hosted, etc... Michele is well represented in this business. Just ask Ashanti,Deborah Cox, Jill Scott, Erica,even Ursher, who has rehired his mom because he felt his PR was not tight this time around( and he was represented by Benny Medina). Beyonce is managed musically by Music World and for public relations, William Morrison or some other "A" list firm in Hollywood. That is why she gets huge endorments that many of the other artists, white/black/hispanic can only hope for. So before you post do your research.

CHOOPS!!!!!!!!!![/quote] Well, sometimes parent's give their children names that are unique and they decide how they would like for them to be pronounced. And that's just my honest observation.
