      Why is there so many people disdaining their success? They’re “greedy”??? They’re part of “the illuminati”??? Where are yall getting all of these negative suspicion/criticism from? They can’t help how much $ they gross and what’s left after taxes. You people are always the same ones complaining about there’s never enough successful black people in the world at large…but then when 2, i say 2 successful black people join forces you act like you’ve been betrayed! Maybe it’s YOU that’s a part of the Illuminati. Jealousy is a disease. Is Oprah greedy? That woman is a MULTI-billionaire!!!

  • Aniyah

    Or maybe they’re two successful African Americans who work hard for their accomplishments?

  • wow

    I’m sorry, but I’m so sick of people claiming these celebs of soul selling. I really don’t feel like there’s some being walking around collecting souls. There are sick individuals out there willing to sell out the next person for a dollar, but there’s no illuminati or soul reaper, just a bunch of folks looking a status and power. You keep ur soul, and u can walk away @ any point.

    dont care what no one says hov is the shi% would love to work 4 him some day

  • Who knows if the Illuminati even really exist.

    • johnjohnnyjohnson

      if your in denial about the possibility of the illuminati, then research it, listen to jayz lyrics, research that sign beyonce is putting up in the photo above, and then ask yourself if you believe in coincidence.

    Btw, Beyonce only really dresses in so-called skimpy clothes when she performs. Away from the stage, she is normally always covered up and dresses conservative. She is a very nice lady. I had the privilege of meeting her, and she was extremely nice.

    First of all, you cannot sell your soul to the devil because it does not belong to you, it belongs to God. Read the Bible, please!! Secondly, if they sinned to get what they have, they will be judged just like the rest of us.

  • Anonymous

    I hope I am wrong though and they are just one of those couples who are rising the right way. But I doubt it. Not with all of these satanic symbols happening

  • mikeccc
