First of all I want to say a big congratulations to Beyonce on the release of her new work. She has indeed been working so hard.
This was a little delayed because I don't like to be a mood spoiler.
I hope you enjoyed all the excitements for the new song tho?
If you're not done with the excitement, then I'm not sure you'll be able to receive this, so go back and relive all of that, and only click this when you are sure you're ready to stand what can be described as the bitter truth.
I received this email from a friend a couple of days ago.
Ok first all dear, I'm not a music critic or am I? :)
I just love good music so much that it hurts sometimes, hence my regular uncontrolled rants.
I love Beyonce so much, you have no idea. When I heard that 'run the world', I was like no not another feministic song from Beyonce. But I thought about it again and said, "yea she's just trying to empower women as usual. You know, maybe a lot of women do need to hear things like these everytime just to keep them on their toes".
That was it, it happens, when you like someone, you tend to make excuses for them innit? :)
Or maybe my conclusion was indeed logical. I think it was or do you think otherwise?
....Song dismissed with the excuses, now waiting for the video....
Counting on all the hype, I was really hoping.
But should I say I was disappointed when I saw it? YES ABSOLUTELY!!!
Yes to be honest, I carefully avoided talking about it. I was basically operating on the 'if you don't have anything nice to say, then say nothing' rule.
The dance was really captivating. I loved it.
Again Beyonce showed her very versatile talent in that video and of course her creative mind is top notch! Trust her to be the only one that can think of something like using those African moves and dancers.
What I didn't like most about the video was the theme "girls run the world" especially the way she interpreted it.
By acting all uncultured and *razz? (take a clue from razz-ma-tazz)
Did you notice she even flipped the bird finger?
To tell you the truth, I was expecting something really classy and sophisticated for the video and not her trying to play lady gaga or something. Save it for the masters, you can never be better than the original, so why don't you just stick to being that special you?
As an ardent Beyonce fan for years, I can only tell you so much about Beyonce.
She's a go getter, she's really strong willed with an incredible fighting spirit. She believes she can be anything and works so hard at it.
Sometimes, this can be wrong, yes trying to work hard to be everything can be so wrong.
She cares so much about competition. Which could be good, but at the same time very misleading.
Let's do a little playback:
Everybody starts talking about how Shakira has her unique style of shaking her body;
fast-fast, girl friend released 'beautiful liar' perhaps she can show her fans that she's better.
Etta James said I see myself in Christina Aguilera a lot;
Sharply girlfriend decided to go take over by doing her 'At last'.
Ciara is known for playing the 'tom boy' role so well and she did that 'like a boy' to explore the different roles she can play; Did or didn't Beyonce try to measure up with that in her 'upgrade you' video?
Rihanna came on with good girl gone bad and it seemed like a lot of people were liking it; Beyonce released her 'I am Sasha fierce' and made sure that she was acting really fierce.
Now the whole world is Gaga crazy. Beyonce has concluded that she might lose her fans if she doesn't go crazy too. She started by getting some good grooming with the 'telephone song', So perhaps now she is ready to take over huh?
Sweetheart, these fans loved you singing all those 'me, myself and I', 'halo', 'If I were a boy' and will continue to love you. You don't need to go flipping like a chameleon.
I'm just saying, she's been out there. She has topped the charts. She has found her voice and people all over the world can recognize it. All she needs to do is to say she has a new album and everyone will be flocking to go listen to it. What's the need for trying to go extra extra(I mean out of the way) commercial?
Shouldn't she just relax now and make convenient music? (especially good ones that she'll always be remembered for).
I mean seriously, you can't see Alicia Keys doing some messed up stuff like that, and guess what? Beyonce will definitely want to be described alongside Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, Lionell Richie, and the likes while also working hard to maintain her place with Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Willow Smith, Kesha and the likes.
No wonder she decided to split her personalities. How convenient!
So this is from Sasha fierce now right?
