Okay, I’m going to just come out and say it.?? I am not the biggest Beyonce fan, but she’s a bad chic (for the most part) when it comes to this music situation.?? She’s married, she’s not out slutting it up like most of her contemporaries and she’s built a brand for herself.?? I am not mad at that.?? I’d take Bey over Katy Perry or Rihanna ANY DAY (let the flogging begin in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1)…
??With that said, I am terribly disappointed in this whole Sasha Fierce thing.?? I haven’t really seen anything fierce or even innovative.?? Granted the video for “Single Ladies” was pretty good, but that was a knockoff of some old video choreographed by Fosse for Gwen Verdon’s “Mexican Breakfast.”?? I needed creativity and innovation, not a regurgitation and repackaging of an old concept.?? I am so TIRED of that anyway.??
For me, “Sasha” would’ve been fierce if we would’ve seen her do something COMPLETELY different for Beyonce.?? Try as she may, Sasha is no different than Beyonce.?? She’s just more of a diva.?? Whooptee-do and la-di-freakin’-da.?? Fierce would’ve been getting rid of the oodles and oodles of blonde weave and going short and jet black.?? Fierce would’ve been some tastefully abstract photos.?? Fierce would’ve been including musical genres new to R&B music.??
I remember when Madonna came out back in the mid-Nineties.?? In her “Human Nature” video she had the black hair done in cornrows, the latex bodysuit, and her message was she wasn’t apologizing for a DAMNED thing.?? Janet used to reincarnate just as well until recently.?? Every new album, it seemed like Janet Jackson got better and sharper.?? Even Lil’ Kim had a new look ever so often.?? While it was tacky as hell, she was different and creative.?? Tacky, but creative.??
Taking a bunch of pictures with weird paint on your face or with makeup that would make a tranny balk, doesn’t make one fierce.??
We will see if Beyonce manages to turn up the volume on this situation.?? I hope she does.?? For all the crazy stuff out there, for the most part I think that Beyonce is not a bad chic.?? I wouldn’t get too comfortable though.?
