Bey “to play gay” rumors start again

Published by Clay Cane on Tuesday, August 11, 2009 at 9:45 am.

beyonce5Back in 2006, it was rumored that Eva Longoria and Beyonce Knowles were supposed to play lesbian lovers in Tipping the Velvet. Those rumors were quickly debunked but now one of the most creditable film sites on the net is stating Beyonce is rumored to play in the movie and the status was last updated May 21, 2009. According to IMDB:

Sarah Water’s novel about sexual repression to the big screen and is anxious for Beyonce and Eva to take the roles of 1890s music hall star Kitty Butler, and her lesbian lover Nan Astley.

Water’s novel was released in 1998 and placed in the Victorian era — it’s interesting and progressive they want two women of color in the lead roles. Bey wants to be taken seriously as an actress, but I just don’t know about her going the lesbian route. She will definitely have to do a full make out scene with Eva — gone are the days when a straight actors can play gay and not touch the same sex. Then again, the role is a musical role and we all know how Beyonce loves playing singers.  Regardless, I still find it hard for this rumor to be true.

How do you feel about Bey possibly playing gay?

She shud bcuz thats the point n acting.. Ery1 who seyz otherwise is trippin nd mad immature



keishon78 Said on

I think she will do a good job. That will give everybody a chance to really see her acting skills. That’s what acting is about, being out of character and becoming someone else On screen.

BEYONCE IS GREAT AND ALL THAT BUT DEEP DOWN SHES STILL A CHURCH GIRL I THINK THIS IS TOO SOON FOR HER. ALTHOUGH SHES A CHURCH GIRL SHES MARRIED TO A RAPPER WITH A POLICE RECORD SO MAYBE SHE CAN BE HARDCORE!



chozyc Said on

Bey is a great entertainer but not tha great of an actress. Its already hard for black actresses to be taken seriously let alone get a good role. She really should step aside or wait for the perfect role bc she hasn’t impressed me on the big screen..

Beyonce cannot act. She has clearly over-exposed herself. Every movie role I have seen her in doesn’t come across as a character that’s believable… because all you see is Beyonce. She needs to go give that man of hers some babies before he gets to old. She also appears to be a very selfish performer. me me me, look at me! Her videos are proof of that. Boring…no substance.



Neliswa Said on

Ahh…NO NO NO! come on now…gay?! Shez not even a good actress people. this ain’t the role for her



unknown Said on

Oh gawd. When are these producers going to learn(or did she buy her way into this movie as well)? Beyonce can’t act. I don’t care how music fans she’s got. Have they not learned anything from Cadillac Records,Obsessed,Austin Powers and even Dreamgirls? She can’t act her way out of a paper bag. She just isn’t believable and her dictions stinks. Sorry. BTW,Eva can’t act either. This movie is doomed from the start. LMAO!!!!!!!



will Said on

unknown or whateva u call yourself. u need to sit ur ass somewhere and get a life. Bey is doing her work perfectly and is it that u are doing. get a life and stop hating



patricia Said on

Teiara Said on

Do ya thang B… We all know ur not a lesbian thats the point of acting being sum1 ur not



LaLa Said on

Wow, BET; you’ve really exposed yourself as a Beyonce’ hater!! I love the girl; she is multi-talented: singing, dancing, acting, writing, commercials… She doesn’t need to step aside; they are picking her cause they feel she is the best for the job. And I say go get it, B!!!



hasani Said on

I’M GLAD TO KNOW THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY PERSON WHO KNOWS THAT BEYONCE CANNOT ACT HER WAY OUT OF A PAPER BAG. I JUST SAW OBESSED AND SHE DID NOT DO JUSTICE TO THAT MOVIE AT ALL.



Bizz Said on

Her acting is terrible. I hope this isn’t true. I have a hard time believing that she’d be able to handle this role. She can barely play a straight woman. How the hayel is she gonna play a lesbian? LOL A mess! She should stick to singing, really.



erika Said on

Beyoncé can do wateva she puts her mind to. I support anything she does. N as for unknown if she paid anyone for a role if the movie flopped it wouldn’t matter cuz the movie didn’t make any money. But she is a good actress n she’s gettin better with time. N we shouldn’t b tryin to tear anyone down

As someone who percieved Beyonce as being stuck up( I now see she is a sweet person) I have to say there are a lot of haters on this site. I know she’s made herself look bad for not staying with Destiny’s Child, however you have to do what you have to do. Beyonce totally surprised me in Cadillac Records. She played that hard core role well and Obsessed was good. You can’t judge her on Austin Powers because it was her first role. Dream Girls sucked period. Anyway I believe if Beyonce does this movie ( though I don’t agree with it) it’s just her trying to give her lesbian fans what they want to see. Her fan base is women, not men. She does a lot of hip moving and thrusting in her videos so I don’t know why people are surprised. It didn’t surprise me when I heard about it.
Everyone needs to stop being judgemental. When certain entertainers call themselves acting I believe a small piece of them is in that character. Example Alicia Keys in Smoking Aces. I love her, but she scared me in that movie. Everytime I hear the song Karma ” don’t play with me” has a new meaning to it…LOL. Obviously she was acting out the inner crazy person, but she wasn’t afraid to do that. People need to stop trying to act like they are perfect. I believe that’s how entertainers show us their weakness and faults.
Maybe Beyonce is curious and this is her way ( if she does the movie) of exploring it. This could be her way of seeing how her fans would treat her if she doesn’t stay married to Jay-Z and stays single. The bottom line is, it’s all about generating publicity and broadening her brand.

I’m a new fan of Beyonce’ and I hope the issue between her and Kelly is squashed. Her father pushed her to the front and she can’t help is that the fans responded to her more. Her voice is strong and she has stage presence.

I love you B
