Ok, let me quickly add my own 2 cents before i 'run away'......
This is my own personal opinion.....Beyonce is hardworking,very attractive and a great entertainer..
But does she have a great voice...nope she has an ok voice..For me Whitney Houston, Luther Vandross. etc those are singers..they have voices you will remember for a very long time..they are not necessarily the best of entertainers...like MJ, Beyonce, Janet Jackson etc...but Holy Lord they sure can sing
Beyonce has created a brand for herself and sings in my opinion commercial songs...i actually prefer the songs she made with destiny child...
When i said she tries too hard...in pidgin she too do..its like shes competing with everyone including herself...
Case in point at the awards, i think grammys when she sang with Jennifer Hudson (who is a better singer IMHO) it was like she had to outdo her and prove that shes better..it became like the THE VOICE on NBC
She oversings some songs and ends up murdering them...White house dinner?
To me she's over the top.....grinning:

bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
you, my friend, are absolutely a stunning stunned stunner.
lmao @ the bolded.
I can be as equally stunned by a small, inconsequential thing as much as a larger, more relevant issue.. The fact I am stunned does not indicate the seriousness of the issue but that mere fact... Me being stunned.... I am stunned when someone runs across the street when the light isn't theirs. I am equally as stunned that Dick Cheney thinks water boarding is not torture.. The word itself does not relate to seriousness of issue to me... If it does for you, then that's where we differ.

And what extreme? Just because I voice that I don't understand your reasoning it becomes I have gone to some "extreme"? Even Mealone noticed that the conversation was civil, mature and even. You now think there is some "extreme" that was breached... We can't all agree. Neither can we all state our opinions in a fashion agreeable to all....

I don't understand your reasoning on this particular issue.... It is flawed and odd to me... Not you as a person nor all your reasonings on all issues, just this particular issue. Nothing more. But it is not important that I understand and I stated such... And this is "extreme" to you?

Ok....

You kinda hit the nail on the head for me....

She's NOT the best singer out there....stage performing too, there are other singers who have it more together than she does ON stage....however with B, I think its this total package she's been able to put together over the years...plus she has enjoyed relatively good media, (sans the stuff with her father, etc) hence why the media is all goo goo gaa gaa over her pregnancy...coupled with the fact that in this day and age a couple like her and JayZ don't necessarily decide to get pregnant again...they adopt...or wait till the woman is close to 50 before starting...lol...I wish them well.....!

:laugh: the thing tire jare. And it seems na mostly women dey feel this way about Beyonce. I don't even feel Jennifer Hudson's voice like that cos whenever I hear her, all I hear is gospel music, but she got some pipes on her though, but then she really can't bring it to Bey on stage cos Bey go just dance am off the stage. People don't understand what it takes to dance and sing at the same time, a lot of people have to lip sync in order to achieve that. Bey does it so effortlessly; yet people refuse to give credit where it is due. As it stands, t-pain's voice fit dey better than Whitney Houston's voice right now...lol (crack will do that to ya). Sade's songs send me right to sleep and I don't even see what is so marvelous about her voice.

And by the way Brooms you can't just generalize about Bey's fans and those who love and will continue to love her music. I am by all means what you would consider mature in age and thinking and I still love the heck out of Beyonce, and I know it ain't stopping anytime soon. Just step a foot into one of her concerts and conduct a survey there, you'd be surprised by the kinds of people who turn out.

I hope Beyonce continues to stay relevant, so that young upcoming girls in the industry will model themselves after someone like her.

That's why the Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, U2 and tons of other guys bands still dey... Not one woman band or group survive the long haul... You guys are tough on yourselves!!

I didn't want to go into it because de kin fight I don fight for this statement I wan tok, I don tiya... but I have NEVER liked Sade.... Never! My sista, people I have said this to almost want to come to blows with me.. Revoke my black and Naija cards sef! But her stuff doesn't do a thing for me.... I find her terribly BORING! Her voice is nothing like Shirley Bassey! A Nigerian decent British born performer that can sing Sade into the ground... Even Sade sef would agree.... So she is not original either... Ssergit said it. There is nothing new on this earth... It has all been done before Lady Gaga = Madonna, Nicki Minaj = Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, etc, etc.....

Abeg make we lef dis marra....

Very insightful and true! And to be quite frank, in my teenage years and early 20's, I was not a Beyonce fan, infact I would probably have echoed the same sentiments as the ones mentioned here. But over time, I found out that this young woman had not really done anything for me to not be a fan or like her, I hadn't even paid attention to her work after the DC days...I simply never gave her a chance. So I took the time to go through her work and found that it wasn't bad at all, it was actually good and then watching her carriage and composure in appearances, interviews etc combined with her live shows; I was duly impressed. My admiration for her has continued to grow because she has not done one thing in all this time for me to say okay she messed up, nothing! People underestimate how difficult it is to be in her position and stay scandal free.

And this thing of better voice is always very subjective, some people might say to you that Toni Braxton has a better voice than Jennifer Hudson, because that is what sounds good to their ears. It is PotAto/Potato really!

Most of you guys are lucky and blessed for the kind of relationships y'all are able to have with each other which a lot of women are not able to replicate.

You and Candelicious just dey talk the truth koko! grinning:

You are so frighteningly right! I don't know why women hate other achievers! Same Whitney Houston they are hailing now is the one they also bashed after she came out with her latest album. Instead of women praising her to keep going on and possibly return to herself, they were bashing her that her voice was dead etc etc. the poor lady cracked AGAIN!

Why Jennifer Hudson's name is even popping up here I don't know! Beyonce has paid her dues int eh industry if we really wanna go that route! Sister gal has been SINGING for a decade now(?). Hudson was just a lucky chic outta reality TV idol.

This one lady -beyonce that does not have one coke, drugs, men-hopping, party-bingeing(sp), drunk driving, public misbehavior etc attached to her name is now the one that is not being celebrated! At least to encourage other young women!?? This same beyonce that encourages women to stand up and be the best they can be is the 'bad gal' now!??
I don't know about some of una O! But me listening to 'Survivor' and 'Independent' was a sure courage pumper O!

Abi na Irreplaceable? Bey talks to women! So, why are women hating her??? If I were a Boy... "Put a ring on it"

"A Woman like me". Haba! Have you listened to 'Diva' or "get me bodied" while on a treadmill?
And the bestest " RUN THE WORLD". This chica CELEBRATES and EMPOWERS women through her songs! smh

Her voice is being attacked, meanwhile, there are all sorts of voice O! And I know I will pick out Beyonce's voice with my eyes closed anytime, anyday! So, she is still unique!

Why women refuse to celebrate one of their own is sad!

A woman is bringing a new baby to the world! She is happy! her hubby is happy! Can we ALL be happy for the sake of the innocent baby?
Jay-Z is having his first born at 41! How many successful brothas at his age don't have a string of baby mamas??? But dude locked down his oats! Bey is having first baby!! This should be the IDEAL ENTERTAINMENT FAMILY to praise!

it is a congratulatory thread abeg.

CONGRATS BEY! I pray the baby looks like you sha. No offence at your hubby, but the kiddo better be looking like you if a girl, and Ok to look like JayZ if a boy. :)

Abeg make we lef dis marra....
And you know one other thing, I love what Beyonce stands for, being somewhat of a feminist myself, her songs ring true for me, because they are very empowering for women. A stupid male friend of mine once said something like women should stay there listening to Beyonce and continue to be independent and not try to marry, that Beyonce is deceiving them. I just could not stop laughing at this. Like how is she deceiving anyone, if anything, that girl speaks the truth. What she is saying in her songs is what a lot of women if they were being truthful with themselves already know, but choose to ignore just to fit a certain status quo, then start regretting it later.

I love, love, love that she tries to empower women through her songs. I don lef the marra men...

I seriously doubt that there will be one NTBdarling....u know those two have really made it up there in terms of MONEY...they can do without a reality show...but, if they do, u bet, it will be in our favorite forum for discussion..:)
