Let me open up with my views on Beyonce as an artist, so maybe you can get a better feel of where I’m coming from. Much like Southern Comfort and applying glitter to strangers, I feel that Beyonce is only truly appropriate at the gay bar. That’s not saying I’ve never listened to “Halo” alone at home and cried or that I don’t demand that one of my exceptionally talented friends do the “Single Ladies” dance every single time I see him, it just means that she’s not my jam, all right, and that’s ok. But then, last night, several of my more fabulous friends couldn’t stop posting this here music video, “Run the World,” on Facebook, along with comments like “the queen has slayed!” and “I love my wife!” But you guys, I don’t get it.
I know she’s an amazing dancer and I know she’s really attractive, but is this song/video really all that phenomenal? Can one of you school me in Beyonce here?
