I can't speak for anyone else but the reason I don't like Beyonce is certainly not out of jealousy. And please don't bring race into this. I don't give a rat's behind what color she is. Her music is forgettable and has ZERO substance. On her best day, her voice is average. And I just don't trust anyone who has so much control over what the media reports on them.

I have never understood the hate for this woman?? I don't know of anything she has ever done to offend so many people? She does her thing and does it very well, so why the hate? She has been a force for many years. She may not have the voice of Aretha, but hell, who does. She sings live and dances well enough. She's not a drug addict and has never been a stripper (like so many have). It's also not her fault that there is no competition. Most new artists suck and can't sing to save their lives. Personally, I think it's just jealousy. Plain and simple.

This is fine. But she's not the second coming. That is what people object to. She's portrayed as the female Christ lol

Well, who would be her competition?

Fact is, it's not the 80s and 90s anymore and she lasted from the 90's girl groups and teen pop bands.

Exactly.I don't "hate" Beyonce.I just think that she is wildly overrated.

Well I strongly believe the the percieved 'overpraise' of Beyonce has lots to do with Britney Spears because she was the 'incorrect' type of mega star and the 'overpraise' of Beyonce is a way of making up for that.

In addition to my post about the media's "overpraise" of Beyonce being a way to "make-up for Britney Spears being an incorrect megastar", the overpraise of Beyonce is also applied as a mechanism in case of any pitfalls in her brand.

For instance, being a 'feminist' is a main feature of her brand yet much of her career/relationships (relationships she makes public) contradicts her being a 'feminist'. The media knows this but remains silent as to not hurt her brand.
