Beyonce: She Just Keeps On Winning

Let me admit something: I have been liking – maybe loving – Beyonce recently. I am just so awed at her person. She’s famous. She’s successful. She’s married. She’s a mommy. She’s wealthy. She’s private.  She’s beautiful. She’s hella hot. I just love the way we know the things she wants us to know. No one really knows what goes on behind closed doors, and I love it. We don’t see her in tabloids with news about fighting someone. Or cheating (or being cheated on). Or crashing a car. Or smoking a blunt. Or missing a court date (or even having to go to court). I mean, the woman is a super woman. How on earth does she do it? And may I have one of whatever she’s having?

It’s only the middle of February, and she has accomplished a LOT already. If a person was blessed to do one of these things in their lifetime, I think that would be great. To be able to do them in the space of one month – maybe six weeks – is CRAZY. And I love it!

In January, she sang the national anthem at Obama’s second inauguration. She was criticized for lip-syncing, but whatever, that’s done and over with. Plus, no one can say that she can’t sing. We know she can – lip sync or not.

This month, she performed at the super bowl, and she slayed it. I can’t lie. Her performance was a show stopper – literally. NEPA took light after the performance, but who can blame them? Her former group mates – Kelly and Michelle – joined her on stage, and they were accused of merely being back-up singers. *shrug*

And just this past Sunday, she took home her 17th Grammy award – as if she needs anymore. But hey, I don’t think anyone gets tired of winning.

Lastly, her documentary – where I hear she gets very candid – will debut tomorrow, February 16th on HBO at 9pm. I’m looking forward to watching it. It’d be nice to see a part of Beyonce that we have never seen. She’s usually so guarded, so controlled, and so … well, you know what I mean.

      I agree!! And that’s what I love most abut her, too — the fact that her personal life is just as organized, like she’s put a lot of thought into every part of her. Great work!

    Honestly, I am not a “fan” and I am yet to be stung by the »B«. But I have madD respect for her and I am yet to come accross someone who doesn’t. No wonder millions of women all over the world look up to her. She is truly a remarkable woman.

      Abot, I totally understand where you are coming from. I have never declared myself as a “fan,” but then I see all these things she’s doing, and I am so inspired. She’s not like the rest. Usually people are either great in their career or great in their personal life, but she seems to have found the perfect balance between both,

        YES at “Usually people are either great in their career or great in their personal life, but she seems to have found the perfect balance between both,”:. Probably thanks to the fact that (despite whatever “image” he may have had as a “tough guy”) Jay-Z IS a supportive partner and they really make each other better.

    I respect her hardwork but you forgot to add “so white”. I have stared at her pictures for several minutes and it makes me sad that the more she is successful, the whiter she looks.
    Hey I know she is not 100% negroid but still ……… Oh well

    • says

      You think she’s getting whiter, really? Hmm. I don’t know. I don’t see it. I’m thinking that the look of her skin tone is just due to better cameras and lighting. I don’t know. That’s what I think anyway.

    I like her because she works very very hard at everything. She is not the most talented performer but she is one of the hardest working and a perfectionist. And it shows. Kudos to Queen Bey.

    • says

      She truly is very hard working, and it’s so evident in her work. I can only imagine what a typical day would be like for her. Well, kudos to her anyway, and more grease to her elbows.

    She’s the only female i can call MY GIRLFRIEND in front of my wife and not sleep on the couch for that,she just continues to grow from strength to strength and yes i must add that her decision to date and marry Jay has really paid off and am so happy for them…

    • says

      Loool. I like your wife already. I think so, too … that marrying Jay Z has definitely helped her. Likewise, it has helped Jay Z, too, to be married to her. They are both very talented and hardworking people.
