LET ME DOWNGRADE YOU



I thought this drag queen was serious until it ate a potato chip off of it's shoulder! This a mock-video for Beyonce's latest UPGRADE U, which has to be one of the worst non-songs since, well, her last single, GET ME BODIED. The video is cute for a minute, but what really held my interest is the shameful poverty of the lyrics. Not that I'm gonna look for quality lyrics from Beyonce, but does she actually utter the words:

I can do for you what Martin did for the people
Ran by the men but the women keep the tempo?

Utterly retarded! Darlin', you're real pretty, but I think you'd need a brain before you put yourself into Martin Luther King's shoes. Here are the ghastly lyrics for the bridge:

You need a real woman in your life
That's a good look
Taking care, home is still fly
That's a good look
Imma help you build up your account
Thats a good look
Better yet a hood look,
Ladies thats a good look
When you're in them big meetings for the mills
Thats a good look
It take me just to compliment the deal
Thats a good look

At what point do we have to say that Beyonce is crap? For me, it was after I read that! I'm sure that Martin Luther King would be really proud of a black artist with nothing to say except "I'm a walking status symbol", when one-half of blacks are not graduating from high school. What million dollar deal meetings will they be in? Don't worry about it, girl. You got yours. The funny thing is, when I first saw that dog-tag with Upgrade U engraved on it held in Beyonce's admittedly sensuous mouth, I was reminded of Nelly's video which raised so many eyebrows when he swiped a credit card in a female dancer's crack. Shit! Beyonce don't need no man to turn her into a ho-this "independent woman" can do that to herself! One time the dumb bitch actually pronounced feminism "fenimism", while advocating it. More like abdicating it.

Bring back India Arie! No, she's not a glamazon who looks great in any outfit and dances well, but she could write and sing and had a heart and a brain!

I think this country is headed for race riots. Consider the ingredients: take a few generations of blacks and latinos with a surly hip-hop attitude and it's fondness for violence and gangstas and then constantly dangle luxury brands in front of them, brands which pay for their inclusion in songs like this. (Beyonce later name-checks Audemars Piguet. I'm too trashy to know what this is.) Of course, even with the high school education which half won't complete, they'll never be able to afford these high-priced items, but at least it gives them a goal. An empty goal which is hardly in keeping with Martin Luther King's. Or any other christian leader's. Oops, I forgot. The most popular christian leaders in this country today anchor their sermons on get rich quick schemes.

As an atheist, I never thought I'd be quoting the bible, but since so many christians can't understand their own religion, remember this old gem?


I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. Matthew 19:24.

I am not familar with black culture, but that last religious quote had me thinking about the late pope John-Paul II, can you imagine the mountain of socks they must have found under his bed after 27 years of pulling his bellend?

I prefer women with style like in that Mocks and Sparks commercial instead of that slutty just slut sexy dressing that Beyonce always does. Without variation. Oh, your titties and ass, oh, we've never seen that before. Good girl!

I think this queen needs to get some of the calculus scraped off her teeth.

I think you're right about race riots, it applies to the UK too. Over here, we're headed towards gated communities, the haves and the have nots and all that goes with that, in a way that would have seeemed unimaginable in the 1960s and 70s.

The problem? Thatcher's 'there's no such thing as society'mantra has led to politicians worshipping the markets, and giving a free reign to business, which has meant that politics and society have now become 'business' i.e. run for profit. And at the arse end of that ideology we have popular culture with its brands, both material and human.

The answer? A full scale rejection of targets, league tables, 'the market', interventionist foreign policy etc and and a reintroduction of thoughtful, funded social policy. That means politics has to become politics again! It's just possible that it might happen in the UK, with 'New' Labour's public death throes happening as we speak, or as I type. But I don't know enough about the States to comment. Help me out, please.

Want to start a political party?
