where did this whole beyonce vs rihanna beef stem from?
oh, ya know what?
so beyonce dropped her album yesterday.
quite as kept,
i was getting bored with beyonce.
nothing she was releasing was getting in my spirit.
same ol; same ol.
didn’t make me any less of a fan,
but she was kinda… just there.
rihanna comes and starts swinging early,
making me a fan of her bold and #nofucks attitude.
beyonce releases her secret album last night and i fuckin’ love it.
it made me see why i fell in love with her power in the beginning.
two different vixens with two different styles.
one being america’s black sweetheart.
another the low key underdog.
suddenly everyone is saying how rihanna is this and that.
“this is how you’re supposed to do it!”
“you don’t have to be naked to sell records!”
“get back in your place rihanna!“
the queen is here”
making gifs and comparing beyonce’s accomplishments to rihanna.
now i’ve NEVER heard beyonce speak negatively about rihanna.
rihanna has always said she admired beyonce.
did i miss the beef between these two?
or was this something set up by both stan bases?
maybe one because the beyonce stans can be vicious.
lets not forget that at the pop music table,
these two BLACK women are the only ones there.
who are the black males in pop?
chris brown is currently on time out for being a dumb ass.
well as you know the king,
who ruled supreme over them all,
left his throne unexpectedly.
all the whites are scurrying,
trying to make the next “so and so” his heir.
none of which fit the bill.
so right now,
beyonce and rihanna are representing us.
two black women that white people try desperately to re-create and re-package.
they ain’t talking about copying no taylor swift,
no katy perry,
or no lady gaga.
miley cyrus being the biggest offender of them all.
they trying to be like us.
ain’t that a good feeling?
black folks act like there can only be ONE black person in entertainment.
we will throw “us” under the bus real quick.
doesn’t it remind you of this:
“you are never going to be good as your brother/sister/cousin.
they going off to college and what are you doing?
you ain’t never gonna be as good as them.”
ya mama or daddy saying that,
throwing you under the bus,
while wishing some other child they think is better was their own.
got you competing against a potential crackhead in the near future.
back in the day there was room for damn near everyone in r&b.
remember when it was brandy,
all with different styles and moods.
the whites didn’t catch on since r&b was a black dominated arena,
but now that r&b is dead,
we are killing it on the main battle field.
sadly “we” always dragging our own kind down.
“fuck taylor swift!”
“snatch katy perry’s wig!”
“bow down miley cyrus!”
“who is britney spears?”
all i can say is don’t even bring that bullshit around me.
both of these chicks deserve to shine with all their accolades.
they have broken barriers,
that if this was still a couple generations ago,
yo ass would be in the fields singing negro spirituals while getting that cotton in order.
so what i’m trying to say is this morning is:
shut the fuck up and be grateful WE made it this far.
