DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that with all the problems in the world and all the kids and teens who are dying senseless deaths, there is a group who is actively petitioning that Beyonce' Knowles redo her horrible "Deja Vu" video? This has to be the funniest thing that I have heard in a long time.


News Article:

Beyonce fans want redo of 'Deja Vu'
NEW YORK, July 24 (UPI) -- Fans of Beyonce Knowles are flocking to the Internet to sign a petition demanding a reshoot of her new video, "Deja Vu."
A petition addressed to the superstar's label, Columbia Records, has 2,000 signatures so far, MTV.com reported Monday.
"This video is an underwhelming representation of the talent and quality of previous music-video projects of Ms. Knowles'," the petition says.
The petition claims the video lacks a theme, is poorly edited and also objects to the star's wardrobe, MTV.com said.
Also criticized are the so-called "unacceptable interactions" between the singer/actress and her boyfriend, Jay-Z. The petition also rejects the way Knowles shakes her groove thing in "Deja Vu," calling her moves "erratic, confusing and alarming at times."

You should have seen me making a face as I read the UPI story. Amazing.

Miss Rose, I was sent this petition and went to the link that provided the petition and became very upset. When I forwarded it to a few people they thought I'd either created it, or that it was a joke.

It reminded me of that sad incident a few years ago when an online petition went out to have Ashanti give back her BET award for Lifetime Achievement. Whether or not the sista deserved that award (she didn't and I can only think of Steve Harvey's standup skit about having to be around longer than 6 minutes to get a Lifetime Achievement award), it seemed like so much energy put into something so inconsequential.

Well, here we are in 2006, and it's happening again to one of our brightest stars. I'm not a Beyonce fan, meaning I don't own any records of hers, never attended a concert, nor do I put her down. Her music is just not to my liking..

But as a black man, I support her and commend her on her tremendous success and wish her many years of achieving a great more of it. Same for Jay-Z who I am a big fan of. At the same time it saddens me that this is what its come down to. The shocker is, it comes from fans of hers. Not haters. I don't really understand the petition anyway but it does sound like a big fuss about nothing. Especially when you consider that we are in the midst of conflicts that can potentially lead to World War III. Geeez...

Utterly ridiculous! I'm a huge Beyonce fan & love the video. The girl is talented & doing her thing.

Like luke cage said....it really is sad that a petition is going around.

Grow up people & get a damn life!!!

Michelle said...

much ado about nothing if you ask me. This is ridiculous -- Beyonce should just tell every petition signer to kiss her groove thing and watch her experience deja vu as she goes to the bank depositing her millions for the song/video! nowadays -- do any videos have themes anymore? it just seems like folks (male rappers in particular) sit/stand around singing and rapping, drinking and smoking while half-naked women swarm around them shaking their ass-ets. and folks got the nerve to complain about B.????

@ cage -- perhaps there time could be better spent signing a petition that will encourage the prez to get us out of war. and as far as the Ashanti bruhaha -- that was a hot mess -- and Steve H. couldn't have been more correct! HEE

I like the video the way it is.
Wow, priorities really are screwy!

The Gig said...

Wow, where have I been. I haven't seen any of this.

As for your comment on my blog...
"YES" I'm very excited. *LARGE SMILE*

Clay said...

Hello Lady Rose,

I guess that is we call involved consumers :) I bet you if she takes it and changes De Javu (i even do not know how to spell it) she will sell more copies of it. Anyhow where is that petition I want to sign too *LOL* I guess ppl have nothing to do :) !!!!

Love,

I think the video is great - the way it is!

The Sarccastik Variable Why said...

okay...this might sound a bit harsh...(uh oh here it comes...)WHO THE FUKK CARES?!?!?!?...why do we care she's gyrating in front of her dude...are we really at a point we want to "Take Back The Videos"...pleeeze...thanks for the info....

Ruben said...

I liked the video. Wow! so someone actually started a petition over this? lol

Clare said...

What will they think of to make a petition about next? If people have a problem with Beyonce's video then the simple solution is not to watch it!! It's a good song.

Kayla said...

Wow. That is ridiculous. Some people don't have much to do in their lives. There are definitely more important things they could be petitioning. We may see World War III in the near future, and people are worrying about what a girl is doing and wearing in a freaking video! Geez...only in America...

Shirazi said...

It is a matter of priorities, yes.

SmartBlkWoman said...

iiI can lie. I think the video is absolutely horrible, but I don't care enough about Beyonce to sign a petition asking her to redo it.

Can someone say "overrated"?

Shawn said...
