Beyonce, you’re boring us with your 'look at me' antics. But we'll share your top three anyway...
Is anyone else over the whole Beyonce thing?
And by this we don’t mean her music. We can perform Drunk In Love word for word even when we haven’t been drinking. We mean the fact that every single thing she does at the moment seems to be a weird and cynical cry for attention.
We’re not the only ones that think so.Eeven Bey‘s dad, Matthew Knowles, labeled Beyonce, 33, and Jay-Z‘s recent split rumour drama as a ‘Jedi mind trick’ to sell tickets for their tour. Wow!
So with this in mind, here are Beyonce‘s three most irritating cries for attention.
Bey‘s little sister Solange attacking Jay Z in a lift was one of the most scandalous moments of the year so far, and perhaps the strangest part was that Beyonce just stood there watching. Speaking of the incident her dad said, ‘All I know is the Jedi mind trick. Everyone’s talking about it. Ticket sales went up. Solange‘s album sales went up 200 per cent.’
2. The song that further ignited cheating rumours
At a show in Ohio in July, the singer changed the lyrics in her song Resentment to fit in the timeline of her and Jay Z‘s relationship. Instead of singing ‘Been riding with you for 12 years’, she changed the lyric to ‘Six years’, resulting in fans taking to Twitter straight away to speculate if she was referring to rumoured affair between her husband and singer Mya.
Again, irritatingly, Beyonce let the rumours kick off and this story generated so much news coverage on her that it firmly secured her place in the press throughout the start of their tour. Clever.
3. Baby number 2?
At the couple’s Paris show on Friday, it was Jay Z‘s turn to change lyrics, including the words, ‘Cause she pregnant with another one.’ Since then Beyonce has conveniently made sure that she has her hand covering her stomach when she’s papped. Y’know, like what those pregnant women do.
So Beyonce, for once can you stop playing games with everyone. We know you’re trying to make yourself seem a bit mysterious and elusive, but it doesn’t really work when you’re the one planting the stories in the first place.
Right, we’re off to sing Drunk In Love at someone…
