Happy New Year! It’s 2014 and the one thing I wish we could keep in 2013, never to be seen again, is the coveted self titled album “Beyoncé.”
Dropping just one month ago, already this album has less than attractive people flooding social media proclaiming “I woke up like this” and obese people suggesting to “let me sit this asssssss on you.” This is by far her worst piece of work artistically to date. Before you type your hate mail to me, know these two factors:
The album lacks any actual direction, and she didn’t even care enough to put in an effort in the naming of it. It is quite obvious that she just threw some crap together to release for hype and money.
As a fan, I am very disappointed being that at the close of the “I Am…” Tour DVD, the Queen Bee proclaimed “I am yours and I will always give you my all.” If it’s not enough that we have to hear lies from our local politicians, but now we can add our favorite artists to the broken promise train. The worst part about it, is after speaking with other Beyoncé fans, many claim they love it because she is finally being herself. Well, if instructing the limo driver to “roll up the partition please, so you don’t see Yonce’ on her knees” or telling her significant other that she “can’t wait til I can get home so you can tear this cherry out,” or making mention of how her significant other is going to “Monica Lewinsky” on her gown in the back of the limo is any indication of who the “real” Beyoncé is, then she is worth the paper used to line kennels at the dog pound. Although I can’t leave the album itself in 2013, I will gladly leave my Beyoncé Fan card in 2013. This album gets a D+, simply due to the clever way in which it was released and that she was able to keep it under wraps from even her record label.
BTW, have you taken a listen to Janelle Monae’s “Electric Lady?” I didn’t think so. Positive artistry goes unnoticed these days.
