Beyonce... are you losing it?

I'm a fan of Beyonce and I have been for years.
But, as of recent I have not been enjoying her music...
she's a fashion diva, a good musician, and an
actress but I think she's losing her touch...

I was home cooking one afternoon and I had the radio on... I started to hear a song
about: "If I were a boy - I would turn off my phone - Tell everyone it’s broken -
So they’d think that I was sleepin’ alone "

Ok... I thought to myself - oh goodness this sounds like Beyonce ,, I hope this is not her...

So I turn up the radio and hear:
"If I were a boy - Even just for a day - I’d roll outta bed in the morning
And throw on what I wanted then go - Drink beer with the guys - And chase after girls"

Good God! It was her.

Why is Beyonce singing about being a boy when her whole career is based on "girl power" and one of her biggest hits were "Irreplaceable" a song where she tells a guy she can replace him in a heart beat (You must not know 'bout me - You must not know 'bout me - I can have another you by tomorrow.)

I get the concept of the song and how she wants to know what it's like not to care about what you wear or how it feels to ignore the person you love.

But singing about being a boy does not help unless we get technical and start talking about sex changes. ha!

Check out the video and song:



I can't believe my ears --- the one r&b artist that I still enjoy is starting to really suck so I go online and try to find other songs from this upcoming album of Beyonce's and I hear the song "Single Ladies" (Put a ring on it).

This song displays Beyonce's old club hit style but ,,,,, I don't like what she's saying in this song....

I understand the going out, clubbing, and partying with your girlfriends but why would I tell a guy
" Cuz if you liked it then you should have put a ring on it
If you liked it then you shoulda put a ring on it
Don’t be mad once you see that he want it
If you liked it then you shoulda put a ring on it"

NO!!!

Just because you Beyonce got married - why do I have to demand some man to marry me - in the form of a song!

NO!!!!

I like the song - it's catchy but c'mon!!!



Lastly, a friend sent me a link to an article about Beyonce (because he knows I'm a fan).
The article was a review from New York Magazine about her upcoming album (which I was excited about).

The article talks about the album and how it's a 2 sided album displaying her two personalities (Beyonce and Sasha) Sasha Fierce is Beyonce's alter-ego. Lane Brown states that the upcoming album is sub par. :(

Beyonce and Sasha's album drops on November 12th.

The good thing is that she looks amazing in her new videos and as usual
I love her dance moves, her sassy scene set-ups, and killer drag queens dancing
just as hard as her.

I still have hope that the album will be good and I also hope her decision to get married has not hindered her career
