This may be the wrong place for this post, but...
I really don't understand the obsession with Beyonce. People act as if she's some infallible goddess, everything she does is brilliant and beyond anything that has ever been done in the history of mankind.
I don't think Beyonce is all that great. Most of her songs are crap, you can't even hear her words. At this point, I think she's buying her own hype because all I see are these self-indulgent displays of pretentiousness.
Me too ! I'm with you, GayDivorcee, and Lawrence.
I too just don't get the Beyonce thing. I don't know which annoys and puzzles me more, the "Beyonce is a goddess and a female role model to all women" thing, or the seemingly almost universal admiration of her music, which as far as I can hear is tuneless, unexciting, and unworthy of all the adoration it elicits. I cannot understand why. It reminds of the story about The Emperor's New Clothes. And you, Speedy, have called it, the great fraud, just like the smart kid in the crowd (from that story, I mean.)
