Serious Question: Ya’ll Think Beyonce’s Ever Gonna Wear Pants Again?

Did anyone else notice that Beyonce has skipped past leotard land and gone straight to panty palace in her new GQ photo shoot? You know the running joke is Bey hasn’t worn pants since 2006, which is actually pretty accurate. Once she hit the scene with “Single Ladies” and that all black everything leotard, she was like, “Ain’t no way I’m covering up all this goodness again.” *Does “Love On Top” Skip, tells band bring the beat in.*

Well now that she’s out to prove something about being a hot mama — literally — onesies aren’t even good enough for miss Baddie Bey. Oh no, she’s going straight high-cut bikini drawl on our a**es — and hers. GQ just published the rest of the pics from her February feature and as I clicked, and clicked, and clicked some more I was like damn, she got on panties and a cutoff in every shot — except for the one where she has on no shirt at all. Somebody’s back with a vengeance — and a nice pair of abdominals, hips, and thighs.

I’m trying to figure out if she just woke up one day and was like, “Every now and again you got to go in that dresser drawer and pull put them freakum drawls. Yup, that’s what Ima do. Ima just rock these drawls on my derriere and make it do what it do. Houston Texas Baby!” The problem is, the last time she started that one-piece Lycra trend, everybody from Laquana with the post-pregnancy baby bump to the girls with the butts so fat Tyga wanted a lap dance thought it was cute for them to start wearing Ballerina apparel on a daily too. I’m talking Miami Beach in the middle of the day leotards, to girls standing outside of clubs in the winter with a onesie, some fishnets, and icicles dripping off their platform pumps talking bout “don’t be mad cuz you see that he want it.” No what we’re mad about is that you don’t see that nobody wants any of that in their opticular spectrum.

So, you see, that is why I’m worried about this little panty parade Bey has going on here. Because with all the praise she’s gotten for her envy inspiring curves, ain’t no way she can go back to covering up stomach and hip-bone no mo’. It’s about to be all Banty everything (cuz you know she and her stans have to turn every word into something they can put in the Bictionary.) And that means there’s about to be a host of gifs comin up with girls posing in their boyfriend’s middle school jerseys and some Hanes Her Way talkin’ bout “I’m getting my Baddie Bey on.” *Shudders*

But back to Beyonce, who, by the way, I never ever wanna hear say “why did God give me this gift” again after showing off all that she’s working with. Ya’ll think pants are just too 2005 for her? I mean I’d probably try to walk around unclothed all day if I had it like that too. And yes, I know she always has on some weird, printed pants for her carefully crafted Instagram photo shoots, but when it comes to her next videos and performances (aside from the Inaugural Ball) who bets Baddie Bey hits the stage in a pair of panties like she never knew booty shorts existed?

Say I.

  • Watcher

    Ugh, she needs to. Im tired of looking at her crotch.

  • scandalous7

    I have always wondered how Beyonce got her abs to look like that, ever since goldmember. She has the best abs in entertainment , even after a pregnancy.

  • Black wifey

    Bey looks amazing!! Why is she getting so much hate?
    I’ve rarely seen Lady GaGa in pants!

  • Nisa

    ROFL! I always said she got big and became allergic to pants. I’m not a stan but she didn’t need to go this route.

  • Shay

    This is for GQ. We’re not going to pick up the magazine, so she has to appease the “readers”.

  • K.Aziz

    Well thats a terrible airbrush job of Bey…she looks hungry and disjointed for one, and more importantly that weave looks professionially done smh….I call bullsh!t

  • Yeppers

    thank you….Beyonce herself has NEVER even said she was this perfect patty yet people are about to hang her like she has said JUST THAT.

  • TeahMonae

    I’m just glad she’s wearing a color besides blue. For a while after she had the baby, everything she wore including her nail polish was blue.

  • Britt

    Beyonce only doesn’t wear pants when she’s performing or doing a photo shoot. When you see her outside of that, she’s wearing pants and full outfits. Don’t act like you don’t stalk her Instagram. People stay trying to shade Beyonce for everything, but want to give Rihanna (who I’m also a fan of) hall passes and praise for being naked all on Instagram. At least Beyonce is wearing bottoms for her GQ cover and if you had legs like hers, you’d show them off.

  • Meyaka

    I’m I the only one who remembers “crazy in love”? Beyonce has been naked from the jump,people are hypocrites and like to say”she has talent” but how does that matter when she is always shaking gyrating and popping? It’s her body she can do as she please but if Rihanna and them are slores,beyonce taught them how.

    • yeppers

      so are you some wholesome sally???? People love to throw rocks at celebrities when they proly the biggest ho themselves….Its her body and her money she making TOO..YOU MAD???

      • Meyaka

        Unlike you rat,I make my own money,I’m a size 4 and I have a husband . Your turn.

        • yeppers

          Corporate job, benz and own a company sweetheart….now YOUR TURN…you dont know Beyonce just like u dont know me. Worry about going home to your husband and not what Beyonce is wearing.

          • Meyaka

            You dont know me either yet you called me names .So like you I am neither big,mad or a ho :)

            • yeppers

              But you obviously wear too much makeup….we can all SEE THAT!!!

        • Kelsey

          LMAO.. she (YEPPERS) kills me.. Always on the attack. Bitter azz Betty

          • yeppers

            I sure am….now GET CHO LIFE. hateful people i swear…..Im still smiling all the way to the bank tho. Just like Bey. Bitter that.

          • Meyaka

            Lol right? Folks are so emotional over beyonce you just want to hug them.

            • Cookie

              I am not emotional at all, nor do I need a hug. I had a legitimate question, which you basically refused to answer. You have replied to all of these other comments, with ease I may add ubt you didnt answer mine or have some 3rd grade smart a s s response..People who are really a size 4 dont brag about it, and why the need to mention a husband you probably dont have either ( fake Facebook husbands dont count). What are 16 and enjoying some after school time? Grow up and approach real women with real answers instead of these silly comebacks you and only you think are funny or witty. Grown mature women just dont talk to each other like that..at least not where I come from (Very much a LOS ANGELENO and proud) and whats your name Kelsey, what you just got home from cheerleading practice and working overtime..COme on girls…get it together.

              • Meyaka

                I didn’t see your comment …

              • Meyaka

                I didn’t read your comment the first time nor this time. Please understand this about me,I don’t mind entertaining you folks but keep the foolishness under three sentences,otherwise I shut down from the stupidity:”you not pretty,you fake” blah blah I can’t…

            • yeppers

              trick u the one emotional….you felt the need to come to a blog to make a hateful comment…..wheres your cover of ANYTHING….ill wait. PEOPLE HAVE SO MUCH TO SAY ABOUT SOMETHING THEY WILL NEVER DO. You may not want to but why bring down a woman who is. BEcause you wouldnt wear something or DO SOMETHING mean the whole world shouldnt??? Your opinion is just that….i dont come to Mcdonalds and knock the spatula out your hand. So dont come for others doing their job. thanks MANAGEMENT.

        • SheBe

          Now Meyaka. You know better! Don’t stoop to that. Arguing with someone that thinks an ’02 Kompressor (Benz) and an Etsy account (company) is above you. I’m appalled. *straightens hair, crosses legs, folds arms and turns nose up*

          • Meyaka

            *flips hair.
            You are absolutely right
            (Corporate job and own a company) she baaaaaaalling.

            • yeppers

              YOU KNOW ME TO KNOW IM NOT???? O O K….TAKE SOME OF THAT CAKE OFF YOUR FACE AND U CAN SEE ME….

          • TeahMonae

            Lol!

          • yeppers

            oh u must KNOW ME PERSONALLY…..I DIDNT KNOW THAT…..WOOOOAAHHH THIS BISH IS SHAKIN THE TABLE. LMAOOO…SAD AND PATHETIC YOU ARE sweetheart bless your soul. Go back to your cubicle…isnt your lunch break over.

            • SheBe

              *le sigh* I have no lunch break that you speak of. I’m surprised that “gubment” computer that you are typing from even allows you to venture on Internet. Wait… I’m way too pretty and wealthy to argue with the trolls that come from beneath bridges. Sayonara.

              • yeppers

                So let you tell it u pretty and wealthy now….ok. Bye your ratchetness.

                • SheBe

                  This is the language and grammar of a corporate woman? Yikes!

        • Amber

          So if you have all of that, why are you always trolling Beyonce posts? Beyonce is a grown woman and she can dress any way she wants too. If you don’t like it, don’t look at her. The difference between her and Rihanna is Rihanna is constantly nekkid. On stage, off stage Twitter and Instagram. I have yet to see Beyonce walk down a street dressed like a h00ker with a see through top.

          • Meyaka

            You don’t own me an explanation.

        • mac

          You could be “making money”. Maintaining your “size 4″. Or spending time with this husband you speak of. But you’re on the Internet arguing with a stranger. Why?

          when one feels the need to post their (self perceived) accomplishments during an Internet argument, it’s time to log off.

          • Meyaka

            She called me a big,broke tramp,I blog here often ,and she won’t speak to me like this.

          • Meyaka

            I’m not arguing at all,i don’t care about one thing said here by folks who obviously don’t have it together,i usually answer once or twice and keep on going…

    • Cookie

      What makes her slore? Because she is posing for picture in a provacative manner, or because when she is entertaining she shakes her hips and pops her behind? Here we have a woman who we have heard very little in the way of scandal or public embarrasment and the only people I ever hear talk carp about her is other black women..I never hear people talk crap about Katy Perry or Fergie..or Tina Turner when she is gyrating and shaking her hips or Giselle when she walks the runway..Point is, entertaining is her job, it is what she is paid to do, and might I add, paid very well. It’s how she got where she is, not by sleeping with people or having bad attitude. I just dont understand why people hate her so much..I am not a stan..she has some cool songs, but I would not call myself a fan. As far as I can tell, she is kind to people, has good work ethic, loves her child, her family, and her husband and tries to live a peaceful life…Why do people hate this woman so much? Please dont say nobody hates her, I read some of these comments, and am truly blown away by the nastiness and negativity.

      • yeppers

        Thank you cookie…and like I have said tho MN is moderating like crazy today…White celebs dont get hateful articles posted about them for the same clothing in shoots. Its sad and pathetic how we tear eachother down just because we cant do something or are jealous of one of us for shining.

        • Kelsey

          Then go to their site.. Hell, She has a right to her damn opinion..

      • Meyaka

        I’m sorry I am on my phone and I can’t read all of that at the moment,but whatever your point was: okay.

    • Britt

      If Beyonce taught Rihanna, then how come Rihanna can’t dance? And I’ve been a Rihanna fan since “Pon De Replay.” But let’s call a spade a spade.

    • Britt

      Also, this is GQ magazine. A men’s magazine. When’s the last time ANY woman wore pants on the cover of that magazine? I’l wait.

    • Amber

      Janet Jackson was gyrating on stage before Beyonce was. Tina did it before Janet and so on

      • Meyaka

        I never say they didn’t :)

  • GalaxyEmpress

    With legs like Beyonce’s, why wear pants?? Just wear a leotard all day, everyday…… oh oh oh oh oh oh oooooooh….. I bet that’s why Jay-Z put a ring on it. oh oh oh oh oh oh oh ooooooh!

    • chanela

      hmm idk though. beyonce doesn’t seem to have any visible muscles in her legs no matter how skinny she is. i guess that’s the true definition of “thick”?

  • JaneDoe

    Brande Victorian you just set yourself up for the Biggest Hater award of the week.. To answer your question though probably not.. As long as her competitors are a few yrs yonger and are blazing their own trails she will do what she has to to remain relevent..

    • bluekissess

      Is Brande having the worst week ever? Lol

      • JaneDoe

        Not yet.. The Stans aren’t out. Unlike the last Bey post

  • TRUTH IS

    Fame is a hella drug!!!

    • Drew Smith

      It’s “helluva” (or a similar variation with 3 syllables). You gotta get it right if you’re gonna drop lines like that, man. SMH

      • TRUTH IS

        MN we have a lingo specialist/police!! Welcome aboard. I do not want to specialize in spelling “slangs” FOH

        • Drew Smith

          It’s “slang.” You’re extra stupid. SMH

          • TRUTH IS

            Slang/lingo is not the queens english…..and you are an ultra turd!!!! Coorect “turd” now @$$wipe!!

  • Flabbergasted

    This is ridiculous. I rarely see pop singers wear clothes on stage/ in videos at all. It’s entertainment! People do not judge equally. I can’t believe the writer has the audacity to blame a singer for the choices that feeble-minded women make. Yes Bey rocks leotards, but because I have my own brain, I don’t copy her. She is an entertainer, not someone who holds a 9-5. There will always be average women who look a hot mess while trying to emulate their favorite singer (anyone see the girl trying to copy the Rihanna GQ cover?) so let it go!

  • Kitsy

    She’ll be doing King and Black Men magazines next.

    And yes, I am a hater (and…I’m OK with that).

    • Meyaka

      High five!

    • http://twitter.com/v89doo_child Wee Bey Brice

      Lmfao!

    • mac

      I’m strongly against the notion that one can’t dislike a celebrity without being called a hater or having it characterized as jealousy or hate. I’ll also state I’m no Bey stan by any stretch of the imagination.

      Now with all that being said, I’ve never seen a celebrity catch so much unwarranted shade in my life. This article and these comments reek of jealousy. Say whatever y’all want.

      I believe MN did a piece on Rihanna’s cover as well. The conversation was very different if I’m not mistaken. Black women grasp at any and all straws to justify their distaste for this woman; it’s absolutely pathetic.

      Beyonce is an entertainer. Forgive her for not wearing church clothes to perform just to quell you people’s insecurities.

      If she can be commended by the POTUS and FLOTUS then what’s y’alls problem? I’ll wait.

      • yeppers

        PREACH!!! HUNNY PREACH!!!! She is an entertainer for Gods sakes…and its her choice to make the music she makes an her outfit choices (FANS WHO BUY SAID MUSIC OBVIOUSLY LOVE IT)…If she did everything for yall I guess she would be making gospel music wearing a choir robe on the cover of GQ of all places. People love to push their insecurities off on other people. IF YOU WOULDNT WEAR IT, THEN THATS YOU….I DONT THINK EVERYONE SHOULD DRESS THE WAY I DRESS OR DO THE THINGS I DO EITHER. The way some people get on here and spew hate is sick. Beyonce is not YOU nor would she want to be. Like yall are perfection….some of you who get on here and talk wouldnt deserve to hang with a bum on the street let alone the president and have the nerve to throw rocks. Get your life together before u hate others for living theirs.

        • mac

          thank you. Just look at these comments. “She’s had lipo”, “If I had money, I’d look like that too”. What is this besides envy. Just making black women look so miserable

      • Pivyque

        I think the response was different because Rihanna isn’t a wife or a mother. I actually like Beyoncé’s music. I do think that there was too much buzz around her pregnancy, but I just don’t care about celebrity babies lol At any rate, I was honestly surprised to see her like this because she usually carries herself like an entertainer, not a video vixen.

  • Ms. Bee

    Bey looks amazing. Amen to those curves. I personally wear pants everyday, but if I had Beyonce’s body, Beyonce’s job and Beyonce’s money, I wouldn’t.

  • skittles

    So much for being a “Christian” Beyonce….

    • bluekissess

      Don’t be so quick to point the finger when your hands aren’t clean.

    • Say What?

      In the bible Adam and Eve were naked until after they bit the apple and became ashamed of their bodies. So then if Bey has no shame doesn’t that make her closer to God?

      • bluekissess

        Very good point Hi5

    • mac

      And the sins you committed today were any less bad?

  • Ms. Kameria

    I like Beyonce and I think she looks good. She actually looks better than a lot of women that I’ ve seen recently who have just had children. Her body looks good and that is why she has this spread and cover. Her pics have a touch of class unlike videos (hoes) who feel that they have to bend over, spread, and damn near show their uteri to get attention. Not to be on her nuts or nothing, but she is doing her thing.

    • TRUTH IS

      You would compare a woman will millions of $$ to lot of regular women….you are definitely delusional. I have seen women with not soo much $$$ look better than her!!

      • JaneDoe

        I agree.. And it kills me when ppl wait for celebrity to expose themselves to feel bad about their physical self. Stop stuffing your faces with fatty foods and hit the gym 3 or 4 days out of the week. There is no better feeling. You all can look just as good.. Bey looks good but she has the ends and the means to look that way. Personally I feel all this exposing of her body to get attention should be beneath her..

        • chanela

          YES!!!! this!

        • Ms. Kameria

          Who’s feeling bad about themselves…most certainly not me. I have no children, and very good genes, plus I try to eat healthy and walk a couple of miles everyday. My point was for the women who have her type of body, or if women lost the weight like she did after having a child, they would want to show if off as well. Maybe not to this extreme, but they would want to be seen and complimented.

    • beauty85

      Don’t you see all those lumps in her stomach, that is from too much liposuction! There is nothing classy about these pics, showing your whoha is far from it!

      • Amber

        Those are abs not lumps. Maybe if you spent some time in the gym, you’d look that good too.

        • Black wifey

          LOl!!! I was thinking he same thing :-)!!!!!

        • Ms. Kameria

          Thank you. And after said “gym work” is done (if it is done) womens’ bodies who could possibly look like hers would want to show it off as well.

    • Kenedy

      Beyonce is millionaire…those women who’ve recently had children you are talking about probably aren’t. Beyonce looks good. lets just leave it at that & stop comparing her to “regular” non-celebrity women

      • Ms. Kameria

        I wasn’ t comparing her to other women money wise, I was saying if other women took care of their bodies and got back into shape after having a child, they could possibly have the same type of figure and would want it to be noticed and complimented……just like she did. (hence the mag cover and pics)

  • IllyPhilly

    That above picture looks terrible. That doesn’t even look like it’s suppose to be Beyonce. What is going on with that pose? Is it photoshopped? OMG. I’m scared.

  • afroveda

    I love Bey. This article had me rolling though. I just need people to understand they aren’t her so they should stop dressing like her. I went out on a girl’s night this past weekend and no lie saw a chick wearing a white shirt covered with a boyfriend jacket with knee high boots and black tights (not leggings). I really wanted to ask her to go back home and finish getting dressed. Leotards and bloomers aren’t for the masses or everyday wear. They’re for Bey and six year old ballerinas.

    • KJ23

      Me too! I do like Beyonce, but this article was too hilarious!! But hey, if I had a body like hers (or delusional like some), I’d probably be walking around in a bikini too. Until then, it’s cover-up-central!!

  • bluekissess

    Writer sounds like a hater. Beyonce looks like a video HO* I mean vixen. But she is grown. If people don’t like it than don’t watch.

    • chanela

      you just managed to use every blog cliche in ONE comment. LOL

      • bluekissess

        It takes skills to do that. I’d rather say it one good time than to write a silly article the author wrote.

        • chanela

          it takes skills to state the obvious? oh okay! what was wrong with her article? it was humorous! nobody is trying to “hate” on beyonce. beyonce is FINE, she isn’t worried about it and would probably laugh at it herself.

          • bluekissess

            Yes it does it’s called my sarcasm. Maybe that’s just the point maybe her sense of humor was hilarious to you which I don’t see .Just like you didn’t see my sarcasm.
