Beyoncé's new video? Not so bootylicious

Posted on

Remember yesterday when I was heaping praise on Beyoncé’s tribute to Tina Turner at the Kennedy Center Honors? Well, not to give you an overdose of Ms. Knowles, but her new Pink Panther-themed video for ”Check on It” (from the Destiny’s Child #1s disc) is playing over at VH1.com, and I’m dismayed to report it’s a rare misstep for the usually flawless performer. Bad enough that the track is free of the lyrical sass and hook-a-liciousness we’ve come to expect from Beyoncé, but the video looks downright shoddy. I’m just gonna pretend this one never happened, and comfort myself by playing “Work It Out” on repeat for the remainder of the afternoon. What do you all think?
