Finally, a Good Video!
I LOVE the “Why Don’t You Love Me?” music video. When I saw the preview, I was really skeptical and thought it was going to be another hot trash mess like “Video Phone” and “Telephone.” Bee traumatized me with the “I Am…Sasha Fierce” era of her career. I only liked half the album (i.e. the “I Am” portion) and most the videos for the singles were horrendously pointless and lacking concept (Granted, the videos for the “B’Day” era were all over the place too, but I let her slide because that was really the 1st time she indulged in chicanery lol.). When “WDYLM?” came out I was holding my breath and hoping for the love of Dereon` that she’d rebound a little. And she did. “WDYLM?” was fabulous. I loved the T.V. 50’s housewife theme (wow! a concept that actually goes with the song! Lol), I loved how they made fun of the fact that Bee can’t cook in real life, and, last but not least, I LOVED TO MY CORE how she dusted off her 16 GRAMMYS! BAM! EAT IT! Lol That part deserved a standing ovation! Heck, I can’t figure out why homeboy doesn’t love her either lol. Melina Matsoukas directed the video, who also brought us the videos for “Upgrade You,” “Green Light” and “Suga Mama.” She also directed “Put it in a Love Song” with Alicia Keys (if we ever see that video). My friend theorized that Bee didn’t want to leave us with “Sasha Fierce” on our minds and wanted to make some type of transition before going on break. If that’s accurate, I can appreciate the idea. Since I’m braggin’ on Bee, check out the “I Am Yours: Las Vegas” live concert DVD. It’s a classy, upscale show that’s a better indicator of Bee’s potential than anything else. Ok, I’m done for now.

Seriously Beyonce`, WTH?!?
Most people figure out pretty quickly that I LOVE Beyonce`. She is my queen diva of choice. But every now and then, she does something that irritates or perplexes me. Here, I tell what's been buggin me about the Bee lately (with reviews and love for the Queen Bee in between).
