No letter. And this is the only time you will ever see Beyonce’s beautiful face this prominent on this site.
I’m indifferent when it comes to her after disliking Bey for several years after the original Destiny’s Child split and for the asinine lyric: “I can have another you in a minute/matter fact he’ll be here in a minute.” She has made some great music. “Dangerously In Love” the album cannot be denied. But read the bolded lyric again. And she — not Ne-yo — supposedly wrote that.
That said, this Clutch Mag rant humored me: 15 Reasons People Hate Beyonce.
Here are a few more links worth the read and time this weekend.
- Single Black Male on T.I.’s Swag
- The Comeback Girl goes Dear John/Joan to her Ex ala My Not-So-Super Ex-Girlfriend
- A guest post on A Belle in Brooklyn about Fatherhood
- Urbzen’s interesting spin on why Steve Harvey doesn’t want you to be a whore and his new book
Also of note: Some of you who read this know what I’m aiming to do. If you don’t know, I’ll just say this: READ A BOOK. That said, I have to scale back the letters I post. I’m not out of material. There are over 100 letters written already, and another solid 50 ideas.
I will post SOMETHING EVERY WEEK DAY. If it’s not a letter it will be a vignette, sidebar for a letter, a poem, an ignorant picture or something random. There always will be two or three letters a week. On some Fridays — because they can be slow — I will have a new vignette called Five Random Questions to keep it brief and to recap the week in the world. All in all, it should still work well. Any feedback is appreciated.
