Beyonce Faces Backlash After Teasing ‘Amazing’ News, Announcing Diet

Beyonce Faces Backlash After Teasing ‘Amazing’ News, Announcing Diet

Beyonce is catching criticism for teasing viewers of Good Morning America with a “big announcement” that had fans wondering if she was about to drop another secretive solo release, or reunite Destiny’s Child. Or something even bigger.

Bey was a guest on GMA because she had “something amazing she wants you to know,” the male voice-over announces in the online teaser distributed ahead of Monday’s program. “This is something I have to share with everyone,” Bey enthuses in the video.

“So, what is it?” the male voice questions. “You’re gonna love it.” Turns out, not everyone did. The blockbuster news was about Mrs Carter’s diet (she’s gone vegan, again).

“I am not naturally the thinnest woman. I have curves,” she revealed. “I’m proud of my curves and I have struggled since a young age with diets. And finding something that actually works, that actually keeps the weight off, has been difficult for me.”

The GMA hype-job is doing the rounds of social media and has made headline news from The Washington Post to the Sydney Morning Herald. The words “angers,” “disappoints” and “trolls” have peppered some of those headlines.

A selection of fan tweets suggest it’s best not to shout-out your diet regime from the rooftops.

In addition to introducing Apple Music as well as iOS 9, Apple today previewed watchOS 2, the first major software update for Apple Watch. One of the most requested updates, watchOS 2 will finally let you turn your favorite photo into a new watch face or view pictures from your favorite photo album with the new Photo and Photo Album watch faces. Also, with the Time-Lapse watch face, you can choose from a selection of time-lapse videos shot over 24 hours in iconic locations including New York City, London or Shanghai.


A new Time Travel feature lets users scroll with the Digital Crown to explore events in the future (and past) including upcoming meetings or activities, the temperature for the week, and information from third-party apps, such as upcoming flight information.

Additional watchOS 2 features include: Nightstand Mode that transforms Apple Watch into a bedside alarm clock, with the Digital Crown and side button serving as snooze and off buttons for the alarm; support for Transit in Maps, so you can view detailed transportation maps and schedules, including walking directions to the nearest stations with entrances and exits precisely mapped; using Siri to start specific workouts, launch Glances and reply to email; and Activation Lock, which lets users secure their Apple Watch with their Apple ID, preventing another user from wiping or activating the device if it is lost or stolen.

watchOS 2 will be available this fall as a free update to Apple Watch. For more information click here.
