BeyoncÃ© is providing proof of her charitable works in response to recent accusations by entertainment legend Harry Belafonte.
In an interview with “The Hollywood Reporter,” the 85-year-old singer and activist said BeyoncÃ© and rap mogul husband Jay-Z had “turned their back on social responsibility.”
Belafonte has been recognized as an important celebrity activist for decades and remains outspoken about his political and social views.
BeyoncÃ© responded to the dig through her rep on Monday. In an e-mail sent to the Wall Street Journal.com, the singer’s rep lists the “unselfish work” BeyoncÃ© is involved in. The list included co-founding a community outreach facility in Houston; donating 100-thousand-dollars to the Gulf Coast Ike Relief Fund; and many other examples of the pop star’s monetary donations to charity.
BeyoncÃ© has been also campaigning for World Humanitarian Day on August 19th.
Last Friday, she filmed a music video for her song “I Was Here” at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City.
The video will be released in conjunction with World Humanitarian Day, which encourages everyone to go out and do good deeds.Â Queen B shared a few shots of herself hanging out with Solange and crew in Texas, riding bicycles, snacking and such. One of those includes a photograph of Jay-Z pushing her on a swing, and then the first shot sheâ€™s shared of daughter Blue Ivy Carter since her birth. Check out the photos below…
