AIBU to just not feel the love for Beyonce ?

I just don't like her music, the screechy and repetitive "ballads", the latest single which is bloody boring and most of all the fact she seems to have based her whole solo career on the fact she has a very flexible lower spine

The OTT (bloke in drag) dress sense, the hair-weaves (wigs?), the Glastonbury performance which had a couple of catchy hits and then an hour of dreary monotone interspersed with booty-shaking < yawn >

I just don't get her. And I don't want to. AIBU ?

Yes you AIBU you jealous of her as shes got killer pins!

I'm not a fan at all either, although I can appreciate she is stunning, I don't like her music.

BulletWithAName Mon 04-Jul-11 14:54:43

I hate her music and think she has an awful, screechy voice. So YANBU about that!

Think she has a great figure though!

TheFarSideOfFuck Mon 04-Jul-11 15:06:58

rocker, my legs are every bit as good as hers (honestly)

yes, great figure

so have lots of other people

She is beautiful however when did it become the rule for women to perform in their under ware to gain success in the music industry. It's not what I'd call empowering.

She is beautiful but I find her music very hit & miss. I hate her latest song called 'Girls' but love some of her other stuff.

TheFarSideOfFuck Mon 04-Jul-11 16:24:13

I absolutely hate "if you like it, put a ring on it"

it

it ?????

yes, because women are objects that you own, when you "put a ring" on them

bloody awful message...why not go the whole hog and brand them like cattle too ? < fumes >

BulletWithAName Mon 04-Jul-11 16:25:46

I know what you mean about that song. Not very good lyrics for young girls to listen too hmm

TeelaBrown Mon 04-Jul-11 16:26:56

FarSideOfFuck -you beat me to it.

And she is held up as a role model, because she is 'feisty' whateverthefuckthatmeans

I quite like her. She looks and acts like the sort of woman who takes no shit from men.

Wish I could swivel and gyrate like her wink

I get her a whole lot more after seeing her Glastonbury set on TV the other day. Wow. She has the perfect body, skin, hair, voice, and seems really humble and coy (half-naked writhing aside).

It's a shame she feels the need to take her clothes off all the time but if I looked like that I would damn well do the same if I felt like it.

Anyway, YABU. <Girlcrush emoticon>

I don't mind her - there are worse examples of what some poppets try to pass off as modern and empowered

TheFarSideOfFuck Mon 04-Jul-11 16:40:12

humble and coy ?

you are having a fucking laugh grin

yep...wigs and weaves

it's kinda amusing when they are visible all around her hair line in close-ups

tbh, I do think she is beautiful, I am not dissing her appearance (apart from the fucking awful dress sense)

lostinindia Mon 04-Jul-11 16:46:43

Ah but it's not Beyonce that performs it's her alter ego Sasha Fierce.

fedupofnamechanging Mon 04-Jul-11 16:47:44

I think that song just means that if a woman is good enough to sleep with, then she's good enough to marry. It's an old fashioned concept though and a bloody annoying tune.

I think she's beautiful, but a lot of her music is repetitive and dull. I think Kelly Rowland has had the best solo material of the two. I hated the song she did with Lady Gaga and am getting a bit fed up of women dressing like porn stars in their videos. Am not quite ready to explain the concept of fetish wear to my DC.

TheFarSideOfFuck Mon 04-Jul-11 16:47:44

bollocks smile

TheFarSideOfFuck Mon 04-Jul-11 16:48:23

that was to LII, btw smile

nokissymum Mon 04-Jul-11 16:48:48

Used to like her when in destiny's child, like a few of her early solo's but now can almost not stand her music, hated "single ladies" , hated the video even more, hate all her new stuff, there just seems to be so much emphasis on how "flexible" her body is, its as if she is saying "look at me! I can do this rolls waist from east to west, hand on knees,
"and i can do that" flips over and lands on mountain top. Dont let me get started with the big hair!

Rihanna is the pits, though

for some reason, however, I don't mind the Ga-Ga, and her videos are bloody sex-and-fetish-fests

worldgonecrazy Mon 04-Jul-11 16:49:47

I don't like her music but I do respect that she has been working from a very young age to achieve her dreams, despite setbacks in her late teens. Anyone who has that amount of dedication and work ethic deserves applauding, and I think it is good for those who think that fame is something that can be gained by 5 minutes on X factor to see how much work it takes.
