Her 2008 wedding to now-husband Jay-Z was a closely guarded secret, but Beyoncé is revealing a glimpse of the big day — a two-second glimpse — in her new video for the emotional single “I Was Here.”

Toward the end of the four-and-a-half-minute clip, which appears on, the singer shares brief front and back shots of her flowing white wedding dress, which has never been seen publicly. The exaggerated sweetheart gown appears to have an elaborate fitted back with layers of fine fabric and a long train.

The rest of the video features major moments in Beyoncé’s life: meeting luminaries such as Nelson Mandela, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson and Oprah Winfrey; performing as a youngster and later as a member of Destiny’s Child; joining Jay-Z on stage in concert; and revealing her baby bump at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. She sings, “I wanna say I lived each day until I die,” and from the looks of this video, so far, she definitely has.

Who really gives a darn about what Beyonce wore in 2008 for her wedding. She’s played and folks are tired of hearing about her and her lame husband. Can we change the subject to someone whose more interesting.

She looks so pretty, and so happy. The dress looks beautiful!

Is that really HER real wedding dress or the dress she wore in one of her videos?

Wow, what a waist she had!

OMG Enough of Beyonce on

Listen people- tbis so called artist is a complete sham. She has ripped off everybody’s music, style, and created gimicky music @ best and packages and re-packages it and “fans” gobbles it up. SHe has added nothing to the overall quality to the genre. Her latest album is horrible and she has released all the songs and videos at once- so consumers don’t even have a chance to “blink” before something else is released. Now the “long awaited wedding dress” who cares- oh but she does- maybe if you focus on that you will “blink” and might miss the junk she has is peddling.

Give it up and GO AWAY! Your time has definitely come and gone…you and your “husband” should slink away into obscurity. Bye. And if we “blink” long enough you just might disappear from the scene.

This doesn’t even look like her!! Are we sure it is actually Beyonce? The face and body shape don’t even look like her!

clearly this was important enough for YOU to click on. So don’t spend your time to read it and then bash her.
Find something better to do.
Take a que from Thumper ‘If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all’
I for one thinks she looks amazing and she is incredible talented, so let her do her thing and if you don’t like it stop reading about it.

If you people are “sooo over” her and “don’t give a damn” why are you bothering to:
A. click on the article
B. spend your time reading it
C. post comments

It’s People magazine…they report on celebrities. Take your negativity elsewhere.
