She is lovely. My DH loves her as well. smile

nothing unreasonable about that. She is one Beautiful woman. My dp is mesmerised, and I feel inspired to shave mine (legs)

Meglet Sun 26-Jun-11 22:59:47

They are goddess legs.

Mine are being waxed this week so are not pretty today.

I just can't believe someone actually has bigger thighs than mine!
She's massive.

CheerfulYank Mon 27-Jun-11 04:28:30

Massively gorgeous.

I don't find her legs attractive or enviable in the slightest, to be honest. I'd rather be sylph-like.

Beautiful face, beautiful figure. Go Bey!

I think her legs look a lot slimmer than they did in SIngle Ladies video. She looked more bulky then

God she's good though, isn't she?

<wonder>

She was stunning but life with Jay-z has ruined her and it's all gone to her head.

The energy! She made me feel really exhausted. Wonderful.

cybboid Mon 27-Jun-11 07:16:10

gilbonzo, I dont agree, I think she is extrememly modest given her circumstances

Meglet, 'goddess' was what I thought too. I was really struck how tall she looked on stage, then how small when she went down to the front of the audience...

My brother has met her a couple of times through work, and is completely besotted. He says she's the most charming, professional artist he has ever worked with, always remembers to thank everyone and has no airs or graces.

agree with thenightnurse, think she's beautiful from the neck up, but it goes horribly wrong from there

hester Mon 27-Jun-11 07:39:22

'horribly wrong'? Because she's got curvy, toned thighs? I'm going to leave the thread before I start ranting...

She is stunning and seems lovely considering she seems talented in every way. She rocked Glastonbury dp and I went to bed like we had had an amazing night out. I shall be dancing around in black knickers and boots ce soir! Love her. How can anyone call her bulky pmsl we have all become brain washed by the media re size etc she is stunning

Tbh I find it refreshing to see singers like Beyonce and Adele acclaimed for their talent rather than how thin they are.

The whole stick insect look of many celebrities is so unrealistic for many young women unless you have hours to spend in a gym a day and with your own chef to cook your food for you. Bring on some more positive role models of different shapes and sizes in the public eye

learningtofly Mon 27-Jun-11 07:47:19

And compared to mine her legs are fab, whereas mine look a little like two uncooked turkey crowns when I kneel down!

EricNorthmansMistress Mon 27-Jun-11 07:54:10

I think she's amazing. Musically meh but looks, talent, performance = wow.

She stormed that stage for hours, singing, dancing, owning the place - she's a strong and gorgeous woman - much more to be envied for her phisical strength and beauty than for being a skinny (sorry, sylph like) woman who can't carry anything heavy or walk a mile or dance all night!

I think there is something infantilising about women aspiring to be skinny. Skinny = physically weak. Beyonce is a powerhouse.

EricNorthmansMistress Mon 27-Jun-11 07:55:30

learningtofly - Beyonce will spend hours in the gym, you don't get a body like that without a lot of hard work - her thighs are pure muscle. She has a body that she works at but works by being strong, not by starving herself.

PrettyMeerkat Mon 27-Jun-11 08:03:41

I'm waiting for the usual bitter comments that frequent these threads about female celebrities . . .

I'm guessing it will be she's talentless, she needs bringing down a peg or two

learningtofly Mon 27-Jun-11 08:04:28

Oh I don't doubt for a second that she spends hours working out! For your average bod like me though who struggles to find time to do my fitness dvd the whole celebrity whippet look is just not achievable or sustainable. It's just nice to see a woman embracing her natural shape and singing her heart out

VanillaRooibos Mon 27-Jun-11 09:06:13

She was utterly amazing at Glastonbury, a real star and professional. And she looks beautiful. Probably all that dancing keeps her in shape.

HellonHeels Mon 27-Jun-11 09:32:18

I really admire her shape. Toned and strong. Not a huge fan of that style of music but she's a great performer.
