Gossip: Beyonce Pulled Out of ‘A Star is Born’ Remake Because of Her Loyalty to Obama


By: Amanda Anderson-Niles

Beyonce made headlines last year for being casted for the leading role in the  remake to A Star is Born. The singer initially expressed that she was excited to be a part of the project, so many were a little confused when the singer confirmed in a public statement that she was dropping out of the film. While Beyonce cited “schedule conflicts” for the reason she was walking away from the film that is set to be produced by Clint Eastwood, many people just aren’t buying that Beyonce could not find a way to make time to star in another movie, especially since acting is something she really wants to do more of.

While some suggest she is pulling out of the project because she is pregnant again with her second child with husband Jay-Z, it’s already been confirmed by Jay-Z himself that Beyonce is not pregnant.

But one plausible cause comes from recent gossip we heard that suggests that Beyonce pulled out of A Star is Born for political reasons. Apparently, everything was cool until Clint Eastwood decided to speak at the Republican National Convention. Some insiders say that although Beyonce has no beef with Clint Eastwood personally, she and Jay-Z feel that they have contributed too much money, time, and support to the Obama/Biden 2012 campaign for her to work with such an adamant Romney/Ryan supporter. Allegedly, the singer just feels it wouldn’t be a loyal move for her to make a movie with the same actor who actually made a speech at the RNC.


  1. I don’t think it’s mature to pull out of movies because it’s being produced by a Republican. People have every right to vote for who they want to vote for. This was silly.

    1. Yes, people do have a right to vote for who they want to vote for. BUT once you declare who you are voting for, people also have the RIGHT to decide whether or not they want to do business with you or support your career. It’s just like the Stacy Dash situation, sure she can vote for Romney. That’s cool. But if people decide they don’t want to support her films or TV shows anymore or put any money in her pockets because of it, that is their right as well. That’s the risk you take when you put your political beliefs on blast.

      1. Yeah but I don’t think people should be punished for their political beliefs. Like why refuse to do business with someone over something like that?

  2. I figured this had something to do with it. Beyonce was really excited about this movie and for her to pull out all of a sudden during the election season seemed suspect to me.

  3. I really don’t blame Beyonce for doing this. Most celebs aren’t this serious about politics, so it’s good to see she is.

  4. My 9 yr old gave me supporting facts of why is voting for Obama. It was not because he is black, I was very proud of the reasons he gave me. Just wanted to share that!

    1. That’s dope! It really annoys me when Republicans say blacks are only voting for Obama because he is black. Like we’re not smart enough to vote for someone based off their policies. I have a college degree, and I’m voting for him because he speaks to MY situation. But anyway, thanks for sharing that. 🙂

  5. If I were her, I would have bit my lip and worked on the movie with Clint. It would have continued to bring her towards a wide audience, made some green and a possible Oscar nod.

  6. She’s such an airhead. Make your money and take every opportunity you get, especially when you can’t act to begin with.

  7. I support beys decisions ,for1 the world has come along way .2 it was built on freedom of speech as well as belief,however if she dropped the role for schedule purposes or or to support what she believe in so be it alease shes reql ,either way the republican club would either all her a sell out or to her peeps or say she\’s greetn. WHOSES TO JUDGE WHEN CLINT WOULD USE THAT HUDGE PROFIT GAIN FROM APPEARANCE AGAIST HER BELIEF. SHES VERY TALENTED STUID SSS OF THE WORLD . I HI CLINT RRRR
