Update: The Androgynous Beyonce....
News has circulated that Beyonce Knowles will produce a "Girly Girly" clothing line titled after her alter ego; Sasha Fierce. If you decide to purchase any garments from this clothing line, expect a downgrade in appearance. As one blogger states, "It is fast becoming painfully apparent to me that Beyonce's image, dances, clothes, even her alter ego's NAME - Sasha Fierce, are really homages/imitations of gay artists and their dance club scenes".
Leyomi vs. Beyonce
Chron has titled Beyonce's alter ego as "The Worst" along with a few pop stars who ventured down the same path. As her husband Jay-Z tries to destory Auto-tune, another editor has discover the root of the problem, it seems as if he has songs by Beyoncé (with accent), Beyonce (without accent), Beyoncé Knowles (with accent) and Beyonce Knowles (without accent). Within his collection he shares that, "The software assigns your songs genre identifications, which can be handy for matching music to your mood. Most of the classifications aren’t terms I would have come up with: Beyoncé is dubbed “urban crossover,” while Michael Jackson is either “disco” or “other pop” depending on the era—but at least they’re consistent".
We've all bared witness to the ways in which Beyonce has copied and stole from other artist. It doesn't help that she has a history of copying off of dead artist. During her performace at last month's BET Awards, she performed, "Ave Marie". Those within the music industry are fully aware that Florence Ballard of the "The Supremes" was known for her rendition of this song and not even Beyonce Knowles can take this away from her. When Beyonce placed this track on her CD, i knew that she was being rebuttal against the loss of her Oscar nomination to winner Jennifer Hudson. Now that she found a way to disrespect Florence Ballard...who's clapping for Beyonce?
