So, I stan for Beyonce Giselle Knowles.
And I've done this ever before I knew what stanning was.
Normally, I'd hate listing down stats (it is disrespectful to indirectly belittle lessor gorls so early in the day) but her stats are too marvelous to ignore.
So, let's start.
FIFTEEN YEARS IN THE BUSINESS (6 with Destiny's Child, about 8 as a solo artist)
48 SINGLES (All better than your faves' singles)
4 STUDIO ALBUMS (Crazy in Love, B-Day, I am...Sasha Fierce, 4)
Oh, and just to clarify, 4 is NOT a FLOP. It went PLATINUM. OOP @ U for thinking it was.
A TOTAL OF 110 MILLION RECORDS SOLD WORLDWIDE
(seriously, she could whistle and it would still win a Grammy before your faves could)
Grammy Wins - 16
American Music Awards Wins - 4
BET Awards Wins - 7
MTV Video Music Awards Wins - 11
MTV Europe Music Awards Wins - 5
The sheer WIN of her announcing her pregnancy while performing Love On Top at the VMAs - Priceless!!!
If you couldn't tell before (and if you still couldn't after, you need to get a clue) she is a phenomenal stage performer, worthy of MJ's glove, ability to give as much energy as an exploding sun into her performances like Prince, etc.
I don't think I meet to mention the fact(s) that she is the FIRST female solo artist to close Glastonbury, or that Rolling Stone named her one of the Greatest Artists of ALL Time (OF ALL TIME), or that she has been the only female person of color to gross $100 Million in her worldwide tour since Tina Turner, thus changing musical history itself.
OR THAT HER HUSBAND JAY-Z IS BASICALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR RIHANNA'S (YES, THAT RIHANNA, THE ONE ERRYBODY SAYS IS SUPPOAST'TA BE BEYONCE'S RIVAL) CAREER, WHICH MEANS BEYONCE PROFITS OFF OF HER AS MUCH AS JAY DOES DURR HURR.
WHEN WILL YOUR FAVES DO SOMETHING-ANYTHING-AS GOOD AS HER? SHE IS THE QUEEN OF POP!
|My Queen is kind to the lessors.|
Beyonce bids you-and your flopping faves-all the best in life.
Aaaaaaand that's all, folks!
