HATE HATE HATE (c) The nigga from Dave Chapelle's Haters Ball


Why? WHY?!? WHY????!!!! Whyyyyyyyyyyy has Beyonce' returned from her very brief hiatus? I guess 'recessions hurt singers too' (c) M. Key. Just when I thought I was safe for a few more months, BEYONCE'-mania comes back in FULL FORCE! She has three singles in rotation on the radio right now... and they are driving me INSANE. I know many of you Beyonce' followers are perplexed... thinking to yourselves 'Why do you have such a strong dislike for Ms. Knowles/Mrs. Carter...? She's a motivation. A strong, independent woman singing songs about the empowerment of women.' And to all of you out there I say 'Well allow me to retort!' (c) Samuel L. Jackson.

When I see Beyonce' all I think about is how she is even further perpetuating negative black female stereotypes. She is a joke... A puppet that has been trained to sing, dance, and entertain for the masses. How is a person that probably has never had an original thought in her entire life a motivation for women? If anything Beyonce' exemplifies that allowing others to think FOR you is the way to a successful career and life. In my opinion she's a walking contradiction. One minute she sings a song talking about 'flaws and all' and in the same breath she causes an uproar trying to ban a video of her falling at a performance on youtube. From the accusations of her saying 'I wish I could have gained 20 pounds and played Effie' in regards to Jennifer Hudson's 'Dreamgirls' performance, to her excessively arrogant statements such as 'I knew that the character that I played wasn't the star ... I'm already a star. I already have nine Grammys. Everyone knows I can sing.' Not to mention the many faces of 'Beyonce' and dem....' I am 99.9% certain that Beyonce' was definitely one of those girls you hated in high school that would attempt to tear you down in order to build herself up. And don't we have ENOUGH of that in the black female community? Come on now... There's a thin line between strong, talented, black female and vindictive, egotistical, black heffa. I'm just sick of seeing women in the music industry recycling the same themes for songs over and over again. (Beyonce's 'If I Were a Boy...' 'Didn't Ciara do that already? (c) Rob Lovell')


Most female R&B singers songs revolve around men, which is reflecting our priorities. We need more mainstream songs that take the focus off of men, and back on to ourselves. And don't get me wrong, I know they're out there because I have them on my playlist regularly. I just wish that the 'Beyonce's' of the world would move 'To tha left, to tha left' (c) Ne-Yo and make way for women that are singing about other pertinent issues affecting us as a species. But, who am I kidding? That wouldn't sell, and that's the name of the game. So until then..I'll be waiting, dreaming, that one day things will turn around... *Walks away from the computer screen, turns up 'Single Ladies' and dances excessively.*
