People who Beef Beyonce More Than Me

From Concrete Loop, comments on this article of Beyonce on the cover of Ebony:

Beyaki has a nappy weave, look at her edges in that closeup pic with the blue fit on.

Beyaki teefis look like a halloween jacko-lantern why?

Beyaki face is looking chubby like she been eating fried chicken non stop

Beyaki looks preggos! Look at her stomach when she is sitting down, it looks like she is at least 4 months, its that or Popeye’s chicken and biscuits is shoved under her shirt.

She is too overrated. Yall acting like that 80’s hairdo is hot, it is not, can she get original and come with something that is flattering on her, NOT.

Beyaki needs weave, 10 pounds of makeup and some veneers on those criss crossed teefis!

Beyonce only wearing her hair like that because she is on the cover of a black magazine, EBONY LOL Don’t be fooled she is only doing this for black folks approval! No surprise because she is trying to do the story of Angela Davis now she wants to rock an ethnic hair do. go figure, lame beyonce LOL
Still trying to bore us with more secrets about her fake marriage, YAWN
Sit down YAWNCE you are so boring!

I am disappointed in Ebony magazine. How can we go from Michelle Obama, a respectable and upstanding shining example of a black woman to this coonish buffonish booty rump shaking talentless hack, ie. a pile of fat back we so affectionately call beyonce. lol This trick is just pimped out by her father to any magazine that will put her on the cover and then we call that star power? No, this girl is not talented, she even lip synched at the Oscars while they put her up there on display to entertain the white folkz, sheesh. Ebony should be ashamed putting this coochie poppin’ embarrassment to the black community on the cover.

She is not representing sistas. She is a convenient negro who pulls out her black nappy wig when she has to do a cover that is pandered to our community. I dare her to wear it to the Oscar’s next year. lol It won’t happen because she is spineless, only black when she has to do a black mag cover, so shallow and transparent beyonce. I have named you the “Convenient Negro” how about doing a movie about that instead of trying to be a real iconic black figure like Angela Davis. You have no depth to do that role, you’re only trying to be down with the black community NOW because you think you need us to go see you debacle that role, not going to happen though. We see through you BE-foonery Knowles!

I won't even hate, Beyonce looks really good in the shoot - whether her hair is her real hair or not. Though I kind of wish it was: that would be some justification for patronizing our dear friend the lacefront wig - she could say she was protecting her hair so that it could grow. But then again, you have to wonder... is she sporting the fro because she wants to get the Angela Davis role? Who's to say?

Interestingly enough, most of these comments were either praise or hate, or praisers hating on the haters. You have to wonder about people who get such polarized criticism.

I Promise, I'm Not Drinking the Haterade On This One

Check this out.

I fail to understand why Beyonce keeps getting the roles of all these Black American icons in movies. I still feel that she doesn't represent black women, and that asking her to play people that so many black women identify with and look up to is just wrong. I'm guessing that people are hoping her celebrity status will make people watch the movie, or that by giving her all these roles she will suddenly morph into the Oscar-winning actress that she isn't right now. Whichever reason, I think we're giving her too much credit. The film maker says it would be a good dramatic role for her. But it's not like she's never had dramatic roles before. She's only ever acted in one comedy. It would be a good dramatic role for any other black actress: why Beyonce in particular?

The poll results say it all. I rest my case.

Domestic abuse is wrong. I don't know why Chris Brown would hit Rihanna, but he shouldn't have done it. Pure and simple. I can't believe people are saying she probably provoked him (reminds me of a post I wrote about guys ganging up against the girls...). People can be so ignorant.

I don't even know how to feel about it. I think what disturbs me the most is that it's not just celebrities - it's people MY age. Domestic violence is often depicted as the older man beating on the woman, but never as something that occurs between young people barely out of their teens. I guess this goes to show that domestic abuse comes in all shapes and forms. I'm sad for them: that their personal problems, whatever they were, developed into this mess; and also that they can't have much privacy in the matter. I guess the law makes these kinds of things public information, but their celebrity status means that everybody knows all their business, not just what they were in court for.

Also, Rihanna did a brave thing by calling the police about it. A lot of people can't talk about stuff like this, but she called. She probably knew it would be all over the news the next day, too. Afrobella has a list of domestic abuse resources for anyone who's experienced it, or anyone who knows someone who's going through it. I encourage anyone who's going through this right now to talk to someone about it. It'll help.

In other news, I'm mad that Coldplay got all those Grammys, despite the fact that Viva La Vida... is their worst album to date. I'm either biased towards their older music, or the only person not on their [bleep]. As you can see, I'm annoyed by it. A lot of great artists got Grammys though: Estelle, Duffy, Adele, Jennifer Hudson, Chrisette Michele, to name a few. They also screwed over a bunch of people, in my opinion, but they do it every year, so I won't waste time complaining. I figured out long ago that they don't pick winners by what's popular. In some ways, that's good, and in others, it's bad.

If you hate this layout, tell me. Seriously. I'm warming up to it, but the hearts have to go.
