That performance was fu*king awesome. A lot of creativity and will definitely help her with the song (the beat is nice, but the song is ok). She's truly indeed of the few entertainers that still we got out here. Hands down flawless performance... and I hope all this hefty bags.lut buckets take a note from a real G.

I like how her Jay and Kanye always take something really creative but not popular and one up it in front of the whole world.

Ex. Kanye's Power video, Jay's Brooklyn Go Hard Video, and now Beyonce's BBMA performance.

That was nice!!! Beyawnce stay swagga jacking but everybody on the internet is starting to expose her.

WRONG AGAIN! & Lmao @ u gettin me cut. Do u know how many different production deals I have with different labels across the world? I'm not signed exclusively to just one label u dumb fu*k! Get your info straight. Lmfao @ people who read up on some sh*t and think they know it all. OH... AND Diplo doesnt manage or make my career either. Diplo happens to be a member of my squad "Brick Bandits" who branched off into his own sh*t and achieved the greatest success ever. Nobody in this family owes or has to answer to anybody in the family for anything. #TRYAGAIN
There isn't a credible source anywhere that proves what yuo're saying to be right or that proves me wrong. You sound like some senile cokehead who met Diplo once backstage and now think he's down with the clique.

Oh yeah.....

Nice photoshop u fu*king idiot! You have a lot of time on your hands to be trying to prove me wrong and prove who and who I dont know.



It never occurs to u that Diplo may be just sh*tting you huh? Oh... and I guess this wasnt really uploaded by Mad Decent more than 2 years ago..

[video - click to view]


And if u need more proof then check the pics & everything else in my Myspace which hasnt been changed in forever. Lmfao @ u hating a.ss idiots that have to go above and beyond to prove sh*t. I guess myself & Brick Bandits are just on the roster for the Mad Decent Block Parties for no gotdamn reason at all huh? Maybe u need to google or look some sh*t up on youtube to satisfy your hunger for answers... smh.

Also... u fu*king idiot! I never said that Diplo had NOTHING to do with Major Lazer at all. U fu*king the whole story up. Major Lazer is the artist... ML is one person, Diplo is another person & Switch is another person... they do not collectively make a group. Major Lazer is one fu*kin person u idiot. Maybe u should follow Major Lazer on twitter too. Diplo stands behind Major Lazer as being one of his producers & his dj and Major Lazer is also his artist. The way you're saying it is like saying Puff Daddy & Biggie collectively make up the group "The Notorious B.I.G".... no u fu*kin dumbass, The Notorious B.i.G. is one fu*king person! Waste your time if u want... I'm done here.

LOL you maaaaad.



Where's the photoshop, dummy? And why making up dumb sh*t? The verdict is in from Diplo himself and you sounding SKETCHYYYYYY.

You gonna argue with Diplo too about his own group?? He probably doesn't even know who you are, clown.

You still failed to find me ANYTHING that says that Major Lazer is one person. You must be thinking of that the fu*king cartoon character with the dreads on a lot of their promo art..and if that's the case then you're even more of a fu*kin retard than I thought. ROFL @ Major Lazer is one person.... but Diplo is another person and Switch is another person..

WHAT???

I could really...

NVM... I said I was done. I'll leave it at that. I guess u didnt click the link which is straight from the Mad Decent site or look at the youtube video which was straight from the Mad Decent account to promote the EP dropping right? And it never occurs to u that Wes could have just been saying whatever to u just to shut you up. Nvm buddy... u got it... good job

F*GGOT I don't care to click no links. You just tryna trick me into listening to your sh*tty remix mash-ups. I ain't stupid.

I don't know why I'm even giving you so much dignification with these responses. We all see that you crazy. So last.fm, their Myspace page, and their Wikipedia biography that hasn't been edited in years are just lying? SKETCHYYYYYYYY

For one... I dont need u to listen to sh*t! I dont give a fu*k if u listen or not. The links were straight to the Mad Decent Site where u would see my release by them.. and the youtube link which also u dont have to watch is straight from Mad Decent's account. k!ll yourself! I know what I am and I know what I do. No need to waste anymore time arguing with a nobody about the sh*t that can be easily googled about me. So again... k!ll yourself

I'm not tryna have Google mad at me first searching up on nobodies, wasting their server space and sh*t. Either way, what does that have to do with Major Lazer = Diplo & DJ Switch??

LOL @ you just now searching this and finding it out yourself. That's pathetic.

Who's hating???

Wasn't the first THING I said "amazing performer". Stop throwing words loosely that are not in anyway a.ssociated with what I said.
Lol I wasnt callin u a hater at all. I said i ignore the haters and post the facts of things that i know, which is the reason why i quoted u and wrote what i wrote. I could tell that u just didnt know about the whole Diplo sampling himself thing. When i said haters I meant the other poster who just post stupid stuff just to post. sorry i guess there was a little misunderstanding.

The Story Behind Beyonce's Incredible Billboard Performance
Posted Tue May 24, 2011 11:25am PDT by Daniel Kreps in Amplifier


The most memorable moment of Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards -- one of the most striking moments of any awards show this century, really -- came when Beyoncé took the stage to perform her 4 single "Run the World (Girls)." Standing before a simple white screen that displayed an eye-popping array of projections, Beyoncé interacted with globes, dancers, and even an army of synchronized Beyoncé clones that weren't really there. The expertly executed performance was more awe-inspiring and innovative that anything on the Grammys or MTV VMAs, and definitely trumped any acrobatic stage show Katy, Rihanna, Britney, or even Gaga have fashioned in recent memory.

For new media artist and film director Kenzo Digital, the performance was the culmination of a month of near-sleepless nights. While his colleagues at advertising company Wieden-Kennedy went home at night, he attended intense meetings with Beyoncé and put in grueling hours on the computer concocting the performance's incredible graphics. "I literally haven't slept in five days," Digital tells The Amp, fresh off a plane back from the Awards in Las Vegas. "It's been a very hands-on, intense process."

Kenzo's work has been featured everywhere from the Tribeca Film Festival to the Guggenheim and MOMA. He studied under "the father of video art" Nam June Paik and his latest film, City of God's Son, is an experimental hip-hop opera that was lauded by Kanye West. Beyoncé's team approached Digital about a collaboration, and after meeting, "She really liked where my head was at," Digital says. "They had this idea to do something interactive and projection-based, so I concepted it with Beyoncé. We worked intensely with her choreographer Frank Gatson, who was also super incredible. Together, we fleshed out how the video would interact with the choreography and went back and forth several times on the look and style. My whole thing was to create this futuristic origami jungle world with elephants and lions."

In just one month, Kenzo, Beyoncé, creative studio Breathe (the geniuses behind the graphics at Roger Waters' amazing The Wall live shows), and animation team Dirt Empire conceptualized and executed the "Girls" performance. "Beyoncé has such an incredible work ethic and vision, and you really couldn't ask for a better collaborator in terms of the performing side of things as well. She k!lled it," Digital says. "When I saw that thing come out live, I was absolutely and completely blown away. As many times as she had rehearsed, as many times as she mocked it up just in the video room to get a reference of where we're at with the animation, to see that come together with her and her 100 percent energy and all the pyro effects, it was insane."

Perhaps most impressive, Beyoncé did the entire performance without the help of a reference screen, like the ones a weatherman uses to pinpoint where it's raining. "She is an absolute monster, she nailed all of her walks -- she just knows it," Kenzo says. "Her muscle memory, her performance, she doesn't need guides. She just needs to practice it a couple times and it's done. There was no visual guide. Her eye line was straight into the crowd, engaging the crowd. That's just her amazing abilities as a performer."

Kenzo admits that Beyoncé's team was initially inspired by a similar performance by Italian singer Lorella Cuccarini. "[The Cuccarini artists] are awesome and do incredible work as well, but there are a lot of different inspirations for where our piece came from," he said. "That's the thing, it's very simplistic. If anything, it's a great example of how great of a performer Beyoncé is. It's just a bare white screen. It's a technique in video art since the '80s in terms of frontal projection and interactive things. That's really nothing new. It's not even a new technology. It's just an incredibly simple, awesome storytelling device, and with a performer like Beyoncé it becomes incredibly powerful."

Kenzo hopes the "Girls" performance lives on as a centerpiece for Beyoncé's inevitable tour in support of 4. "It would be awesome if it would be," he says, "but I don't know what's in store exactly." Digital's phone has been ringing constantly since Beyoncé's world-stopping performance -- "I literally have 50 new messages on my answering machine and so many emails" -- so expect some more revolutionary performances in the near-future.
