Why I Don't Like Beyonce

Being that she released B-Day and was in "Dreamgirls" in 2006 it was pretty damn hard not to notice Bey-Bey. She was/is everywhere! I will say that I love her music but a lot of shit with her and her family doesn't sit well with me. Before any of the stans start, yes, I'm a hater but I really do love Beyonce because I wouldn't be taking time out of my night to write about her if I didn't absolutely adore her. *rolls eyes*

The Destiny's Child (or Beyonce and those 2 or 3 other heffas) Switch-a-roo
I used to luff the hell out of Destiny's Child. I had both of their CDs and wore them bitches out so hard that they would skip every time I tried to play them. I also loved the fact that 4 beautiful, young Black women could grab the nation's stage and look cute by doing it. My favorites were LeToya and LaTavia (especially LaTavia with her thick ass) because they were the prettiest and LaT was rockin' that red hair to the fullest. I cannot tell y'all how crushed I was when I was watching the Box (a now-defunct video request station for y'all youngins) and I saw two new girls in the video for "Say My Name". This is where I started to lose respect for DC. Not only did they replace the other girls, the new DC would perform "SMN" with LeToya's and LaTavia's vocals still in the background. They never bothered to record a new version with the new members. WTF? To me that was so fucking disrespectful, I feel, an insult to the fan who would be able to tell the difference. Then the fact that LeT and LaT didn't even know they were replaced until they saw the video just boiled my blood further.

Ok, so now they have two new females: Michelle and Farrah. Even though I was pissed at the shit, I still tuned in for DC performances and listen to their albums. Then what happens? They kick Farrah out (another one of my favs). ARGH It also gets on my nerves when award shows give DC3 an award for selling so many albums but fail to acknowledge the other two original members. I mean, damn, I know that we are living out parts of "1984" but muthafuckas are trying to rewrite their history and shit. A damn shame.

Beyonce's Passive-Agressiveness
Is it me or is she turning into the queen of subliminals. First, there were the jabs at the original DC members:

Now that you're out of my life I'm so much better
You thought that I'd be weak without you but I'm stronger
You thought that I'd be broke without you but I'm richer
You thought that I'd be sad without you I laugh harder
You thought I wouldn't grow without you now I'm wiser
Thought that I'd be helpless without you but I'm smarter
You thought that I'd be stressed without you but I'm chillin'
You thought I wouldn't sell without you
Sold 9 million

I'm wishin' you the best
Pray that you are blessed
Bring much success, no stress, and lots of happiness(I'm better than that)
I'm not gon blast you on the radio(I'm better than that)
I'm not gon lie on you and your family(I'm better than that)
I'm not gon hate on you in the magazines('m better than that)
I'm not gon compromise my Christianity(I'm better than that)
You know I'm not gon diss you on the Internet
Cause my mama taught me better than that

After of all of the darkness and sadness soon comes happiness
If I surround my self with positive things I'll gain prosperity

Iight, here's my thing. I can see why Beyonce and Kelly would sing those lyrics, but what the hell is Michelle doing joining in? Heffa, that wasn't your beef. I know you don't want to bite the hand that feeds you and all, but damn. Oh. Right. Beyonce. The problem in this case is that she repeatedly said how the song was for no one in particular especially not for the former DCers. That's all fine, well and good, but B and Kelly...who the FUCK else would y'all be beefin' with over record sales and dissing in magazines? The average everywoman female is not going to identify with all that shit.

Then there's the comments about Jennifer Hudson and her supposedly wanting to play Effie: "I wish I could have gained 20 pounds and played Effie.". Bitch, boo. Something about that statement just smacks subliminal for me. Also, she's a damn lie because if she wanted to play Effie then the bitch wouldn't have shown up at the audition in character as DEENA.

Lyrics That Make No Damn Sense
I understand that sometimes lyrics aren't really that important to a song. Maybe the song is a party joint and no one's going to pay attention to it while dancing. Maybe it's a sex song and when you're going there who is actually trying to listen to the lyrics (see "The Greatest Sex" by The Lone Pisser a.k.a R. Kelly)? Beyonce, though takes it to a whole. nubba. levah! (hee!) Sista Toldja at said it probably better than I can but I'm going to touch on some of the songs that she didn't.

(From my MySpace blog) Deja Vu's feels kinda weird to be singing along to a song where the singer swears she's having Deja Vu.....but she's not. Deja Vu is the "experience of feeling that one has witnessed or experienced a new situation previously." (that was via What was described in the song? The act of hallucinating....or she's just plain batshit crazy. (lol) I was on a message board (It was either C+D or TWoP) and someone said that it was this decade's "Ironic". I agree with that in the sense of some of the things in "Ironic" weren't really ironic, just like hallucinating doesn't equal deja vu, but.....some of the things in "Ironic" were ironic enough for it to add a lil bit of validity to the song. With "Deja Vu".....there is none.

Kitty Cat
It hurts and feels disearning it hurts and it feels like it's perceptive and exhibiting good judgement? Whatever you say, B.

Suga Mama
And I've always been the type to take care of mine
I know just what I'm doing
Don't you worry it's cool and everything is steady
Puttin' you on my taxes already, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I promise I won't let no bills get behind
Cause every touch, every kiss and hug
You 'bes believe it'll be on time
*claps* Bravo, B! Thanks to this and "Upgrade U" we will now have even more stupid-ass females plunking down money for men in order to keep them as well as showing men that if you can't Audemars Piguet them then you're not worthy. Oh, and thanks for sending the message to young females that you ain't loving your man right unless you buy him a lot of shit/pay his bills.

Other life gems from Beyonce:
When your man isn't treating you right you either call someone so you can cheat or you put on the sluttiest dress you can find so you can make your man jealous and have other men slobbering like twits
Never fail to remind your man how wack his sex is all while complaining that he's not home
Even though you hate your man you should keep him because the dude got bank and ain't no other bitch supposed to be spending that but you
If your man ain't acting right you can get another him in a minute even though you're currently dumping his ass for whatever he did in the first place
If your man is putting you through bullshit you should get a trophy cause you skrong
It's perfectly ok for your man to talk about bagging you while you talk about actually loving him

It's late. Early. Whatever, so I'm going to bed. I'll write more later.

Back for the first time

WOW! It's been a really long time since I've done this. Let's see if I remember how to do so. ;-)

One things that's been on my mind lately is sex. The lack of, want of, and the frustration of it all. Why is it that when you're not having sex it seems to be the one thing that people cannot stop talking about? Case (s) in point: This past month I have had two guys tell me that they hadn't been keeping in touch with me because 1) They were busy and 2) They were horny. The fuck? Keeping in mind that these are two grown ass men (29 and 21-22 respectively) and they're telling me that they can't talk to me (or text me, or IM or hit me on Myspace) because apparently my voice (and words?) are enough to send them banging on my door in hopes of banging, well, me. I can't tell you how utterly fucking annoying that is! Yes, I know that a lot of people would be thrilled to hear such declarations of horniness but that shit ain't flying with me.

THEM: I was just so horny and I didn't want to give you the wrong impression of me/If I heard your voice, I would be tempted to scoop you up.

*The second quote is from my ex from 2003 who just so happens to have a girlfriend.

WHAT I HEAR BETWEEN THE LINES: I can't fuck you so I'm not talking to you.

In the case of the first guy (29, attractive, teaches at the high school by my house) he at first told me that he spends Valentine's Day every year with his 12 year old daughter. That's cool. I talked to him about V's Day again and he said that V's Day was a day for sex and since he wasn't getting any he was going to spend time with his daughter. *sigh* He tried to clean up (read: pull his foot out of his ass) that statement by saying that him spending the day with his daughter was a tradition. Who I am to fuck with tradition, right? The last I heard from him was on that day when he sent me a text message, "Happy Vday hope u spend it thinking of me". I said, "Same here", but I didn't really mean that shit.

Really, I'm just wondering what's up with people lately? I seem to keep running into horny ass bastards and bastardettes. Let's see, there's the guy who I talked to a few times at my school who for some reason sent me (and 12 other people) a pic of his dick (impressive, but EW!) without any provocation to do so, the guy on the next block who pulled out his cell phone and showed me a pic of his dick (not impressive at all, and again, EW!), and the massive male assholes on MySpace who wants to know if they can lick/touch/fuck me on the solo tip, if they can L/T/F M in a threesome, and if they can L/T/F M on the regular as a sex buddy despite the fact that it CLEARLY states on my page that I'm not for that shit at ALL. I realize that I'm at the age where there is supposed to be a lot of exploration/partying/sex going on, but honestly, I did a lot of that shit when I was younger. I still have the fire in me, but I'm not going to have a fuck buddy because that's the cool thing to do and I'm not about to have a threesome because it's "cute", "cool", and, according to some people, what I'm genetically predisposed to do because I'm Bisexual.

I don't know what the hell is going on these days but I would LOVE to meet someone who sees me not only as a sexual being (and can actually handle it) but for my other wonderful qualities as well. I always seem to get the ones that want to fuck the hell out of me with no commitment or want to commit to be but don't see me sexually. Do I really have to settle for one or the other? Fuck no! Until I find my ideal man or woman (the latter might be unlikely), I'm closing up shop.

Closed until further notice,

P.S. I know that the spanish word for queen came waaay before the Latin Kings/Queens and whoever else was/is using it, but I still want to state for whoever's reading this that I AM NOT nor have I ever been or will be affliated with the Latin Kings/Queens or any other gang. I know that the streets of the internet are mean but there's no internet thugging or banging on my block. I live in a nice internet neighborhood! :-D
