this frustrates me so much. and i know there’s plenty of people that do recognize her talent, but reading all the criticism and the nasty comments in blogs is making me pressed. why are all these people denying her talent? all these… music snobs… always pointing out that “yes she’s pretty and she has a nice voice but real talented artists are a different thing”?
and i’m not just talking about her “talent as a performer”. her voice and her musical ear are incredible.
"she’s such an effortless entertained that it’s easy to overlook her music’s defining quality: strangeness. beyoncé is an eccentric, a vocalist with truly weird and original melodic and rhythmic approach” (source)
people just don’t believe it because she dances her ass off on stage. why can’t she be both an amazing performer and an amazing singer? do you need to be fat, or less attractive, or be less commercially successful than her to be taken seriously?
maybe she will be truly appreciated when she’s 60 and doesn’t dance anymore, i don’t know…
