So I found this post by someone that calls himself Michael G and it had me blown away. I'm posting this because I would really like to know how others feel about this topic. We are bringing this topic to one of our shows on "The T", not about Beyonce' in particular but industry artist in general, and I would love to get different views and opinions on this.
It's copied just as the writer wrote it:
As to Keri commenting on Beyonce lip singing…People need to relax about that. It’s really not that serious. In cases of inclement weather, many celebrities, including Whitney Houston, have performed using a pre-recorded track.
If people want to criticize Beyonce for something, at least make it about something that matters. Over the last 15 years, Beyonce has made music that encourages young women to get drunk, have one night stands, show off their breasts and ass, slide down stripper poles, use men for sex while having them pay their bills, put on their freakum dress and cheat on their boyfriends, as well as encouraging 16 year old girls to lose their virginity just as long as they “don’t tell anyone tomorrow”.
If you want to criticize Beyonce for something, discuss how she choreographs performances, and writes and sings music that includes both demonic and satanic imagery, while making a mockery of Christianity.
If you want to criticize Beyonce for something, discuss how on one day she’ll visit elementary schools with Michelle Obama, encouraging young girls to respect and take care of their bodies, but the next day, do a photo shoot with GQ magazine where she’s posing half naked with her breasts exposed. I can’t tell you how many teenage girls have personally told me they started having sex early and dress like freaks because they wanna be “Bootylicious” like their idol.
If you want to criticize Beyonce, discuss how she ultimately married, (after allowing herself to be strung along and cheated on for 10 years) a former drug dealer and convicted felon who has made a career rapping about guns, murder and drugs, while calling black women ******* and hoes in the process.
If you want to criticize Beyonce, take a step back and look at the millions of single black women who have embraced the “independent woman” way of thinking, leading to them being viewed as virtually unwifeable by black men looking for wives around the country.
If you want to criticize Beyonce, let’s not forget how 10 years ago, she encouraged young black women to go out and get a “soldier”, who she described as a thug, hustler, drug dealer and carrier of illegal guns. Many of the women who grew up listening to those lyrics got their Soldier, but are now 35 and single with three kids by two different deadbeat dads.
So, finally…If you want to criticize Beyonce, please don’t focus on her choosing to lip synch the National Anthem at the inauguration…Believe me…There are far more important and socially relevant things to criticize her for.
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?
