Wow - wowee!

Woo-oot! You're more bootylicious than Beyonce, or something. Less homophobic, at any rate. Have fun!

Is Beyonce homophobic? Damn. How has this been apparent?

Well, the latest is the following press release:

Beyonce Knowles has denied that she made an anti-gay comment in a recent interview with The Sun. Their interview described her as having said that God would not let her kiss a woman in her comments about about Madonna and Britney's onstage kiss during the MTV Video Music Awards. Beyonce issued a statement on her website saying, "I'd like to clarify any confusion over some quotes that were attributed to me totally out of context in a recent interview. I have never judged anyone based on his or her sexual orientation and have no intention of starting now. I have a lot of gay and lesbian fans and I love them no differently than my straight fans.""

"No differently", eh? How tolerant of her! Just as much as her fans who aren't going to hell! As if. I'm fairly sure she's on the record against gay marriage too. Stupid fundies.

Well - I think the idea of "loving" your fans is an odd one anyway. I'm not doubting that she may have said said some other stuff, but I don't think I'd convict on the evidence of that press release.

The fact that she'd even release that statement is a step ahead of most r'n'b or hiphop artists!

You're right that it's a step ahead of most, but it's still not good enough. As I said, she's said anti-gay-marriage things in the past, but Google can't find them for me! I must trawl through my backlog of Now! magazines.

"Loving" your fans is a peculiar choice of words, but y'know, the girl has a peculiar choice of clothes...

Beyoncé said that (if I remember this right) God allowed her to dress sexily (or not dress, depending on your way of looking at it) and to flirt with people, but that he wouldn't allow her to flirt with a woman or kiss a woman.

Still, if she didn't actually say that, I'm surprised she's not asked the Sun for a retraction as I'm pretty sure they actually quoted her as saying it. Of course, they can make things as out of context as they like...

I like her music, but I like her less when I read interviews with her, she sometimes strikes me as one of those people who shouldn't be allowed to say anything.

I read an article about her in the Guardian, ages ago, which described her as "personality-lite". That about sums it up, I think!

Whee! Have a good time!

when i grow up i'd like to be you.
care to vacate your current life in five years or so, please?

(wonder if it'll be good? didn't really like her on the EMAs - it was well choreographed and that, just a bit tired or something. i was well impressed with justin last year but that was the only poptastic gig i've ever been to.)
