Beyonce Knowles’ Comment Upsets Janet Jackson

Beyonce Knowles has reportedly upset fellow pop star Janet Jackson by implying that her family were not from a high-class background.

The singer appeared to put down the Jackson family in a recent interview with Elle magazine after stating: “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”.

And according to the New York Daily News, Jackson, who hails from the working class area of Gary, Indiana, is so “infuriated” by the comment she is planning to confront the singer.

    It was artists like Janet and the Jacksons who paved the way for blacks in the entertainment industry such as Destiny Child. So Beyonce needs her as* kicked for saying some dumb sh*t like that.

    I can’t really understand why Beyonce would make sure a rude comment about the Jackson’s. I respect the Jackson’s more for making it out of Gary, Indiana and becoming stars then little miss already rich. Don’t get me wrong, the girl got talent, and she does have conventional beauty. I am actually a fan, just hurt by the fact that she used childhood status to throw a punch at Janet THAT was low class. Beyonce, your rich, talented, married to a hip hop icon, and came from a family that supported you and had the resources to help you achieve your dream. You don’t need to act like that; it makes you seem like an ugly person. I sincerely hope that the media spun this quote to cause drama, it saddens me to think that she actually said this.

    BEYONCE SHOULD ADORE THE WAY JANET HAS MADE A SUPER STAR OF HER SELF AND IF SO WAS ABLE TO PULL HER AND HER FAMILY OUT A SO CALLED SITUATION. AT LEAST STARS LIKE JANET DID HAVE TO USE HER BODY TO MAKE MONEY OR SING ABOUT HER BODY PARTS AND DANCE LIKE A STRIPPER TO APPEAL TO THE FAN, MAYBE BEYONCE SHOULD SPEND MORE TIME LOOKING FOR HER PANITES THEN LOOKING TO PUT OTHERS DOWN

    Beyonce should make a public apology to the jacksons.that was a messed up comment

  • Beverly

    I cannot believe that Beonce made this comment, just heard it, now I now why I can’t stand the B, you went to private schools, I can’t tell, why didn’t you learn how to speak English if that is the case, I can’t tell that you went to private school, did you play hooky all the time, hell my children went to private school, your dad drove a jaguar, can you even pronounce the word and he stole so much I am not surprised with his crooked A, your African American, really, you think because you are married to JZ and you talk Ebonics, the only reason why you stand out from Destiny’s Child is that you skin is lighter than Kelly who has more talent in her left thumb than you, because the white media loves that, and didn’t your parents pimp you out wearing whore like outfits to show most of your skin to get you noticed, look B please don’t get big headed, you are studio born and if the plug came out of the socket you could not sing one note, your family worked very hard to get you out there yes they did, but so did the Jackson parents, but the difference is they have real talent, yes you are an entertainer, but you can’t sing or act a lick, and their parents didn’t push them to get them out of a bad situation, they were working class family and they are Royalty, something you will never be, bow your head to Janet Jackson, she is someone you will never be, and do you think that your record sales would be as high if you performed with clothes on, PLEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAASSS

    Beyonce’s swollen head is starting to mess with her way of thinking. I believe that even if she was to make an apology it would only be for show and tell, she wouldn’t mean not one word of it. Beyonce is to da*n old to be acting like a disrespectful child. Her comments were very out of line and she knows it.

    i dont think yall understand what beyonce meant. yall takin it the wrong way. she loves the jacksons. janet needs to get over it and move on. beyonce is true and sincere. she dont mean it in a bad way. SO LEAVE BEYONCE ALONE. because plenty of people have talked about the jacksons and janet didnt approach them.

    BEYONCE MAY ACT OR LOOK THE PART GROWN BUT SHE NEED TO ACTUALLY GROW UP!

    Clarissa: We do understand. Beyonce comments were inappropriate and irresponsible even if her communication skills made it sound worst than intended. The Jacksons are off limits when comparing simply because there is no comparison with anybody since the Jacksons are music Royalty. It doesn’t matter how you got there, it only matters what you do once you’re there–and the rest is Jackson HISTORY.

    Beyonce, you need to go and find some pants you can use when you perform.
    seriously, I haven`t seen her perform with pants, she always wear short skirts or tiny dresses where you can almost see her ass.

    and for her comment, Beyonce, the talent you have, Michael and Janet have in 1 finger, so you should shut up. and your father also made you & you dear sister start singing.
    I don`t know how she even dare to say that. B**ch!
