WARNING: some people may or may not be offended by this post.
i know i promised myself that i would keep my blog positive and uplifting....
i have to rant. just this once (maybe not just once. i cant make any promises)
about 10 or so years ago, a strange musical force came onto the American airwaves. That force going by the name of
ugh. ok seriously where do i even begin with this creature?
to be fair, yes, she has a great voice. yes, she knows how to "flaunt what 'cha momma gave ya". yes, she is married to Jay Z. and yes, she has way more billions of dollars that i will most likely never ever obtain in my life.
HOWEVER, as an avid music/movie lover, i first have to say i am highly appalled at the lyrical content of her songs. I mean...first she whines "pay my bills...if not then we are through", and then she turns around flailing about shouting that she's an "Independent Woman". make up your mind already!! sheesh. OH YEAH, if i hear that friggen song "Halo" ONE MORE TIME i am just going to freak out!
to add further insult, the fact that she now is being paid to act
flub her lines terribly/barely produce a sqirm-worthy performance is way more torture than I or the rest of the world need or deserve to be tortured with.
maybe i should give her some slack. I mean, Obsessed was not the best movie i've ever seen. i don't think i'd even rate it on my top 20. in fact...i may even go so far as to say that i'd rather watch Shaq squeeze himself into a genie outfit and prance about in that gawd-awful flick Kazaam.
(remember that? auughh. scary!)
ok, back to the matter at hand. in Obsessed, Beyonce plays the stereotypical angry/jealous/"if you mess wit' my man i'ma CUT you" wife who has an on-going battle with her Executive husband's bottle-blond hot piece of ace/level 5 crazy/secretary (another type-script role for Ali Larter) who is convinced that her boss is in love with her and brings out a whole different level of psycho. Overall this movie has a weak and predictable plot, an abundance of overacting, and yes....waaaaay too much Beyonce.
let the cat fight begin!
ok...i feel a lot better. really!
