Maybe being married to Jay-z propels her storyline as well. People love a celebrity couple, king and queen.
yeah I mean obv no has to justify liking or disliking Beyonce's music but let's be clear about two separate thingsI don't like beyonce. I never will i think. Staggeringly overrated. I prefer rihanna (much stronger vocal character) or charli xcxx. Dua lipa even (again, just a more interesting vocal presence, one that owes sonething to Rihanna actually). But I dont like mick jagger either. Despite that, both beyonce and the stones have many good records. Just not as many as some will have you believe.
btw there's almost certainly something meaningful to be said about race, American pop stardom, and the changing face of pop stardom in the last quarter century on this point. I don't know enough about pop to really tease it out that meaning tho, I think.tho her image is more fixed than a Madonna
beyonce been on the dance music ting since she done that lion king afro/gqom album with all them south african man pfork ra only just started sucking off
it might be commercial but hows it exploitative when shes bussin scenes and being a shitty gateway that gets ppl lionizing the real thing (even if its perfomative), at worst shes a parasite with mutually beneficial motives like drake if anything
fuirthermore certain, actually gay, actually black ppl r saying she diana ross levels of gay icon n while thats obviously wild gas idk if u man r even allowed to question it if we're doing this superwoke billionaires r bad rah rah shit
She won't though. It's doing what it's supposed to be doing right now: have people talk about it. Every serious music forum right now will be on this shit. They knew presenting it this way would be bound to ruffle some feathers on the house head side while twinkling to the uninitiated. Controversy is good marketing. Sensationalism too
