Why did the media/music industry protect then project Beyonce's shortcomings onto the rest of the industry?

How is it Britney Spears' fault that, unlike she herself, Beyonce Knowles has been proven to be incapable of concieveing a hit single from her own mind?

*

*

Whatever documented explanation Beyonce and her collaborators have given for the creation of the singles she has released is no different than how many of her peers have contributed to songs, but WITHOUT those peers taking a writing credit-from Kelly Clarkson to Britney Spers-because they never concieved the song from their own mind in the midst of professional songwriters...

Not only is there no evidence that the only 'co-writer' of the global hit 'Everytime' can even play a musical instrument...

*

*

But there is no evidence of that 'co-writer' writing a melody from her OWN MIND either...

Adding more artistic consequence to the song is Oscar and Grammy winning songwriter Glen Hans'ard's resonant cover...

*

All that we are left to ask: Is Beyonce Knowles really single-handedly responsible for lowering expectations for singer-songwriters?

*

And yes, Britney Spears predates Beyonce Knowles in the (national) spotlight...

Why don't you go to their offices & ask them instead of starting 10 identical threads here that they're never gonna see.

Thread deserves a bump...

*

THE SELFISH Beyonce Knowles is not somebody minding her own business.

*

*

The lowering of expectations of singer-songwriters in the music industry can be traced to only ONE WOMAN, no different than the credited decline of lilith fair...

*

*

The media and the music industry tried to undermine Britney Spears specifically through Beyonce Knowles when it turns out that Beyonce Knowles is purely valueless when left to her own artistic devices...UNLIKE Britney Spears

*

*

Whatever she has ever 'added' to a hit single is no different than what Britney Spears' producers/songwriters have ever said about her or the SINGER Kelly Clarkson and MANY OTHERS, WITHOUT them taking songwriting credits...

*

EXCEPT, we actually have evidence Britney Spears can write more than one melody on a musical instrument...

What's worse: Beyonce Knowles single-handedly lowering expectations of singer-songwriters in the music industry or Beyonce Knowles bringing shame to the Black Community?

To be clear, this thread's villain is Beyonce, not the black community. The selfish Beyonce is the one who is the embarassment.

*

*

Britney Spears doesn't have to be the best songwriter. She's not Michael Jackson. She's not Prince.

*

She's not even Madonna or Janet Jackson.

*

She's just a better songwriter than Beyonce Knowles, and that's all we really need.

Now that Justin Timberlake has, although laughably very late, apologized to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson...

*

It's time for Eminem to apologize to Britney Spears and for Beyonce to apologize to the music industry, the black community, all the songwriters she took writing credits from and her fans.

*

Eminem disrespectfully called Britney Spears a 'manufactured' pop act when the 'artist' he later collaborated has never written a hit single in her entire career despite plastering her name on the writing credits, unlike Britney Spears, an actual composer...

Britney Spears isn't Michael Jackson, Prince, Madonna or Janet Jackson.

She's just better than Beyonce Knowles...

That’s what I thought of too, that prince encouraged her to play. She’s actually playing and singing Spirit in a special made after the gift album was released

He showed her some chords. But he also noted how well she knew scales and harmonies, and such.
"I can't believe this shit thread is still going," he said as he added to it.
