Beyonce, can you handle her?
And the winner of the PopWatch quote of the day is…
“To be fearless enough to rock a national cover in curlers — at the peak of her career — is the sign of a true independent woman.” — Smokey Fontaine, editor in chief of Giant magazine, discussing the magazine’s new cover shot of Beyoncé
No argument here!
In other news of the Destiny’s Child frontwoman, the video for her new single, “Déjà Vu,” is now streaming over at MTV Overdrive (and at YouTube, for Mac users who can’t interface with MTV’s persnickety site). While I’m with the fab folks at the must-read Beauty N The Beat blog that it’s a little disconcerting to (once again) see Ms. Knowles acting crazy in love for Jay Z, while he feigns indifference, I respectfully disagree that her dance moves are “unforgivable.” Sure, Beyoncé gets spastic in the sand (kinda like Mya in “Case of the Ex“) and her Krazy-Eyez Killa expressions are just thisside of scary, but she looks fierce doing it. And props for saying no to carefully choreographed footwork and choosing to simply get down with the git-down. But that’s just me. What do you think of the new Beyoncé cover shoot and video? Do they “Cater 2 U,” or are they more a case of “No, No, No”?
