Beyonce Wants To Know Why We Don’t Love Her (Let Me Count The Ways)

May 4, 2010

Beyonce has a new video out for a song called “Why Don’t You Love Me?”  No secret that I do not think Bey’s the most talented woman on the scene and I’ve been called a “hater.”

What I detest most about Beyonce aside from her mediocre talent is her unabashed self sexploitation. Case in point.  The new video:

“Why Don’t You Love Me” – Beyoncé from Beyoncé on Vimeo.

(In the event you need exhibit B, I give you “Video Phone”:)

I’m tired of seeing Beyonce whore herself out in music videos.  The dramatic eye makeup, the short outfits, the lace fronts (particularly the blonde ones) and pouty lips. Ass, hips and breasts.  That about sums it up.

Perhaps I’m old fashioned, but that’s not cute to me.  That doesn’t say “omg she’s so talented” to me.

The attempts to overcompensate for a lack of a truly soulful voice are getting kinda played out.

Further, this message of “I’m being perfect for you, why don’t you love me” is horrific.

Who gives a f*ck why he don’t love you?  Better question is why are you wasting time with a man who either isn’t loving you the way you deserve or is hell bent on rejecting you?

Furthermore, the video’s character seems manic, depressed and suffering from alcohol addiction.  Oh and she burnt dinner.  What kind of archetype is this supposed to be exactly?

The only thing her character is “good at/for” is looking like a pants-less sexpot.  Guess she figures if it works for GaGa it’ll work for her (nah fam, nah).

Sure, one could argue that every woman falls for a guy that isn’t interested in her- but do all those women obsess over it?  Do they completely self destruct over it? Nope.

Thank Beyonce, for once again reppin’ us women in such a positive, non-sexist, non-stereotypical way.  I really appreciate it.

    I think Beyonce has a decent voice. She is a spectacular dancer ( can dance in those stilettos and sing) BUT I agree with you about the super sexy image. I wish she would show less.

    She is so commercial looking–aka Eurocentric looking–she will be mainstream for that and her talent. No need to show all that skin. Not happy about the Eurocentric thing being part of her appeal..but, its the truth.

    Just watched part of the video…super disturbing. Watching her like that is like watching Whitney Houston act like that…too much talent to be grabbing boobies and shaking booty and wearing skin tight clothes and…

    beyonce sucks a*s*s and the writer of this article is right on point. and i love how beyonce continues to beg us to believe that she’s a lady and not the illiterate ghetto hoodrat she truly is.
