a lotta beyonce to keep me goingNovember 18, 2008
Like, how does she never cease to amaze? She CONSISTENTLY puts out amazing singles. The latest “If I Were A Boy / Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” pair of releases just blows my effing mind. First, she tackles, with a pure vocal miracle, the friction between the male and female roles in a long-term relationship. And while the subject matter of “Single Ladies” isn’t very … feminist, the song is still so good. Also, like, sure, I was really really really really really pleased to see Justin Timberlake shake around in a leotard and heels on SNL this weekend (despite the sort of homophobic nature of the entire episode). But after repeated watches, I find myself looking at Beyonce dance instead. She is AMAZING! I like especially when she does that walk / hip-pop move.
Also my love/hate relationship with the Gawker blogs’ posts about “The View” is getting out of hand. Today I went to the show’s Web site to submit a comment to the producer about Sherri and Elisabeth, who are both mentally retarded. I am insane.
It’s these little loves and battles that keep me awake during the day. I’ve slept maybe 10 hours over the past two nights. But Elisabeth Hasselback and a cup of coffee are totally enough to wake me up. And if I don’t want to have a heart attack, I will just listen to Beyonce.
