It's National Blog Writing Month. Well who am I to deny what she says? I'm down! Who else wants some??? You do realize, though that this means you will have to READ and COMMENT for the next 29 days. GET TO WORK!!
For the first day of this undertaking, I have several bloggers to thank 1) Stace for posting a Record Dish-worthy post on her regular blog, 2) AI for introducing me to the better version of this song.
When composing this blog for the first time in my head (does anyone else thing of blog posts all the time no matter what they're doing in their lives?), I came up with the title "Oh Beyonce," knowing full well X would hate me for this post. But it had to be done.
Why does she do this to herself? It's not like she has a bad voice. But she's not a power singer. The battle with Jennifer Hudson in "Dreamgirls."
I know it was scripted that way, but come on. She got killed. And don't give me that "Deena was supposed to be the weaker singer." Yeah... well, SUCCESS!! BTW this is one of my FAVE scenes from the movie and goes right into the signature "And I'm Telling You."
Now to the meat of this post. I didn't even know this song existed before Beyonce rolled in the sand for it getting the weave wet and nasty. Do you know what the beach does to your hair???? You'll never get that out!!
It's not that B sounds bad. It just has NOTHING on Des'ree. Why did you do it to yourself B? Why? So sad.
