What is wrong with all the 'celebrities'? Are they in so much need to impress and convience they are actually someone worth noticing through abuse and death? What the hell? If she was so talented she wouldn't have to use dead animals, alligators for decor at her photoshoots OR her butt to seel records! Geez!

Beyonce has no talent & obviously she has no moral principles when it came to the poor alligators mouth being taped. To her it was just a momentary plight for the poor animal. Maybe someone should tape her mouth for a few hours, perhaps then she might relate to the discomfort of the alligator.

foxY____It should be obvious most movie people care little beyond the bubble of luxury they live in.

The bubble could burst any moment, but they don't think so!

The pictures displays every man's dream of a whore! Any man would love to have her decorate his arm but would he dare have her leave further than his 20/20 distance?, probably not. The alligators say a great deal about who and what she is as much as her pose.

She simply doesn't look real!

Thank you for this story! This chick is a total loser and a horrid example of what happens when no talent freaks try to be musicians! They can',t so they try to depend on shock value of stunts like this!

to all above who posted negative comments about Beyonce, I say you all are a nasty bunch of racist idiots.

To master chief- You sir have missd he point entirely. It is about animal abuse- racism has nothing to do with it. Name calling is offensive behavior. Hopefully some day you will learn this. Best wishes.

Hi Master Chief! Please read carefully the following:
"racism: abusive or aggressive behaviour towards members of another race on the basis of the belief that races have an intrinsic superiority over others."
I cannot read ANY racist comment about Beyonce - critics on her attitude towards animals or an eventual lack of talent have nothing to do with racism. So far concerning your post.
Ignorant is the one who talks without knowledge (and uses the wrong words with a wrong meaning) - maybe you think next time before bashing people expressing an opinion based on facts?

Oh come on...!Master Chief...Racism has nothing to do with the above comments. Please don't miss the point and don't undermine the issue redirecting people to other matters.If you want to talk about discrimination though, why don't we talk about speciesism which is the case here. We are not negative towards Beyonce cause of a different race, but because she is an ingnorant speciesist - which means that she exploits animals as if they were things and not sentient beings, just because they belong to a different species. Please consider reading and educating yourself, before you go around blaming people with such 'heavy' words as racism.
Abusing animals is unacceptable - celebrity or not, she should consider her actions even more because there are people out there that look up to her, and want to be like her. What images does she project huh?

Dear Master Chief____Your statement of racism has absolutely nothing to do with this woman. And, I knew in my heart of hearts someone would come post such a remark as you have. Dear Master read on: Your use of the word racism is a race baiting tactic that no longer works, you want us whoever we are to feel guilty in some remote way for these words based on color that have been posted. I doubt very much she could be any other color other than what she is, I accept that and surely she does too. So, you are running to her defense for purely racial reasons of your own. Dam man, this is not a racial issue and stop making yourself look so damned unintelligent over it.

Hey Master Cheif- If you want to be immature and name call, maybe you should be on My Space or something like that. This site is for people that want to make a positive difference in the world!

Hmm... Seems like Beyonce's "prima donna" attitude has leaked the presses. I never liked her even though her music can make me dance. HaHaHa!

Now that we explained to Mater Chief the meaning of the words he misused - can we go back to the point?
Thanks to everybody!

Watch the video if you can.
It is funny how when the PETA member tells her how animals are treated in order to get the fur out of them, she doesn't even know what to answer.

Obviously. She never spent a thought on that issue. Superficiality bites ;-)

This is the place where everybody wants to make a difference. and I say you guys are taking it waaay too far. All your rants against her because you are animal lovers is nothing but a cheap excuse of your filthy existence. We all know you love animals. But for you to hate another human being who happens to be working hard to earn a living, that is beastly. Shame you show love for animals but cant show love for a hardworking woman as her.

This woman is abusing animals and promoting abusive behaviour towards hon-humans in general. Apart from the fact that she is a disgrace for women - look at her sexist lifestyle - let's say if she was a child abuser...should we show her some love? Or boycott & try to get the message across that what's she is doing is PLAIN UNACCEPTABLE? We animal lovers -as you say- we don't forget the humans. Love is for everyone. But we can't close our eyes when someone has no compassion for another living being HUMAN OR NON-HUMAN. Only if we live in harmony, this world can be a better place. In harmony with All Nature's Children. Not only humans.

Master X___Lets' see, I think you have a human hangup about this woman. And, try hard to recall the very hard work all our ancestors did compared to today!! She is catered to in a way few of us are simply because she is alledgely beautiful, well so be it. She rides in a limo, eats caviar & steaks and has fine cloths!! I've not heard of her off and running to save any endangered animals much less humans dying by the near millions in Africa!. Perhaps you might contact her and give her some tips on how to upgrade her moral influence for some good causes!

Care2 is about the earth & endangered animals, it is not about how you feel towards this so called singer. Chances are good another beautiful face will come along very soon and replace her anyway, so quit worrying about her and worry about the only home you have_____MOTHER EARTH!

Master chief, baby-you don't get the point!
Nobody hates Beyoncee-we simply say that what she is doing-abusing animals and leading to abuse in a world really full of it-just for fashion and publicity is despiceable.
It is-no matter how beautiful she looks doing so. So go on watching and adoring her-it's your choice.
She is superficial-at least that's the way she behaves.
And-baby, she is not working hard as any working mother trying to cope with kids household and a really hard job with hours and hours of physically or mentally tiring work without the release of a personal trainer-masseur, or other luxurious objects.
Good for her she has everything-time for her to care about others as well-or not (it's her choice), but definitely time to stop specism.
Get it or leave it BUT THINK if you have brains to use!
