It really was a terribly crass and tacky thing to utter. Seems she was a fatal victim of word vomit over the course of that interview.
I can't agree with her statement, because there is absolutely no way that I can lump Beyoncé in with the current generation of pop tarts. Yes, she's managed to maintain consistent success up until this time, but to classify Beyoncé with the current generation, let alone to claim that she's leading it, would suggest she be considered a driving force behind today's market, and she isn't.
Besides, if Beyoncé can be grouped with today's pop crooners, then Britney, Christina, and P!nk would have to be, as well.
Yes I agree even though the quote was taken out of context. But of course people will run with it.
She was talking about doing A Star is Born which has been done three times previous by three other generations of talent; Beyonce has been chosen for the fourth ASIB movie, hence her representing her generation's talent in the franchise.
...I'm not the one that you should be making your enemy.
“I’m becoming a little more comfortable in front of the camera. I wasn’t used to it before. I was thrown into a new lifestyle and everything I do is kind of filmed or photographed. I’m a private guy. I like to keep to myself. I’m shy, maybe. It gets kind of tricky for me but, I’m beginning to find the fun in it. I don’t take myself too seriously so if I’m front of the camera, that’s what you’re going to get, me clowning around."(Bruno Mars)
How can her talent be representative if it's not shown in the places that would make this generation aware of it, the hot 100, the radio and the iTunes charts? She needs to let the children know.
I would agree if she wasn't Billboards Top Female Artist of the 2000's. If she wasn't RIAA's most certified artist in the last decade. And if she wasn't the top RADIO artist of the 2000's.
You can sit now.
"Why is Taylor Swift regarded as such a good role model anyway? I wouldn't want any daughter/niece of mine to grow into a girl-bashing, *****-shaming, boy-crazy, eternally-virginal damsel in distress who seems to perennially look at the world through the prism of a victim. That's not empowering. That's not even healthy." - U4EA

She said in every generation there is a talent chosen to represent the generation in ASIB and she is honored to represent this generation's talent in the movie. Let's not take the Queen's words out of context.
And even if she was to say it that way, meaning what you think she meant she would right.
We have to take the lead.
If we are educated, our girls will value education.
If we respect our bodies, they will value theirs.
If we are brave, they will grow up to be fearless.
Until we walk the walk, it just continues to be talk.
- Beyoncé Gisele Knowles-Carter
Not even shading anyone in particular, but I'm convinced if you put a green wig and cute pumps on an inanimate object and gave it one Top 40 Dr. Luke or RedOne single, you will see threads praising and stanning for it, comparing it to Michael Jackson and how they're slayed by its good personality
