*DISCLAIMER #2* I haven't always had problems with Beyonce.
*DISCLAIMER #3* I'm not trying to step on any toes, so please don't call the Beygency on me. They're scary.
Now that that's out of the way, let me continue with this rant of sorts.
When Destiny's Child first came out in the 1990's, they were arguably my favorite female group in the world! Apart from a few songs which I downright hated, most of their music were my JAMS!!! Their Survivor album stands as one of my favorite albums of all time. It's just hit after hit after hit! I was a little irritated when they shook up the group (removing Letoya and LaTavia); but whatever, as long as the music kept coming, I was all good.
The biggest draw of Destiny's Child to me was Beyonce. I mean, she was pretty, she could dance, she had a booty, she was thick (thick of the 90s and 00s is not the same thick of today o), I hated the way she spoke, but overall, I reeeeeeeeeeeally liked her. In fact, I would pretend that I was her in my bedroom. I tried to mimic her modulations in all the songs, and I was just awed by her. It goes without saying that when she went solo, I was excited. Naughty Girl from her Dangerously in Love album remains on my Favorite Songs list forever and ever and ever!
I think my reduced enthusiasm towards Beyonce started with her B'Day album. Who releases videos for every single song on their album? Little did I know that 7 years later, she was going to shock the whole world with her Beyonce album, featuring 14 songs and 17 videos. S'okay. I'm over it. No big deal. And then she got married and didn't share pictures with us. WTH? Did she not know her dress would be iconic and people like me like iconic wedding dresses?!?! Don't worry, I'm not upset anymore. She's a human being and has a right to privacy.
I'll admit that I've been less than warm towards the Beyhive and their Queen abi is it King Bey. Hehe, my friend wrote something about 'beydiots' on her Facebook page and I couldn't stop laughing for days! Will I admit that there's a little bit of haterade (Beyterade? Nah) in my coffee? Sure. But I can't hold in my main reason for it anymore...
WHY ISN'T SHE FOLLOWING ANYBODY ON INSTAGRAM?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
|*this is my phone screenshot, and yes I'm still addicted to Candy Crush *|
I mean, who the heck does she think she is?!?! I can understand Oprah not following anybody, because you know, she's Oprah. But Beyonce! You have a husband! And a sister! At least follow them for goodness sake!!! Ugh!
