My Weekend Crush

I like Beyoncé. Now, this isn’t a particularly revolutionary statement. It’s far from unique. Clearly, a lot of people like Beyoncé. She is only one of the biggest, hugest, super-duperest stars on the planet. She goes by the one name. She uses that accent over the é. Heck, she has even claimed the entire letter “B.” So what makes Beyoncé more than just another diva? Well, she just seems so nice. And grounded. And not on the verge of mental collapse. Unlike some of today’s other superstars, she has never – to my knowledge* – flashed her lady business around town. This is important. While I understand that sexy clothes are just part of the uniform, Human Anatomy 101 is not. (*OK, fine, but those seem like genuine accidents.)

Also, possibly most refreshing of all, she isn’t the size of a toothpick nor does she aspire to be small enough to fit through a keyhole. Is she fit and slim? Sure. But there’s a reason she can pull off those ridiculous moves – she has muscle. Heck, I even fondly remember her Destiny’s Child days. So whatever she is calling herself these days (Sasha/Ms. Fierce/Miss Knowles if you’re nasty), it seems that of all the things for girls to aspire to today, being strong, successful and sane seems like pretty good things to me. Also sometimes a girl just wants to dance. Happy weekend, all.

p.s. Not to get all Kanye, but that was one pretty damn good video.

And she can make you cry when she serenades halo to Chelsea, an Australian kid diagnosed with leukemia.

Im becoming a bigger and bigger fan of Queen B by the day and now you you've encouraged me to be an even bigger fan. Nothing wrong with admiring beautiful, strong, smart, hot, non-toothpick-size lady :)

You know, for some reason, this is a bandwagon I just can't get on...

After Miss Beyonce handed the mic to Taylor Swift at the VMA's I totally jumped on the bandwagon. She showed a lot of class and respect for others by doing that and I was more than willing to make the jump.

Beyonce is a truly good person. There is a spirituality about her. She knows that times are tough for her fans and opened 2,000-3,000 seats to her concerts for $20 each. She wants to get paid but she isn't as money grubbing as many of the A-listers are. Her concerts are truly entertaining, high energy extravaganzas with many costume changes, and dancing She has an awesome all girl band. She always gives maximum effort and loves her fans. You see people of all ages and types at her concerts even Moms w/their 10 year daughters. She's sexy and hip but not rough and cheesy. She sings from her heart. I respect that she doesn't talk about her marriage and her man. When she's on "Oprah" she dresses hot and hip but not slutty at all. She separates her concert life from her regular person life. The girl's got her shit together.
