Does anybody feel ashamed about Beyonce Knowles?

Chiefly the fact that she spent an entire decades-long career trying to prove herself as a music artist only for her to find out that she's not even as good a song-writer as Britney Spears?

Is this the ultimate humiliation of Beyonce Knowles and the music board on this site? Beyonce Knowles not being as good a songwriter as Britney Spears?

Ashamed? She’s a multi millionaire with a billionaire husband and multiple Grammys. Most artists would kill to have a life and career like hers.

Who?

Yeah, whatever. Lots of performers are just performers and don’t write their own stuff. If they have a concept they’re selling, then they can do that.

Re: Does anybody feel ashamed about Beyonce Knowles?

I don't think anything about Beyonce Knowles. I always felt she was dime-a-dozen talent that somehow got lucky.

Now Mary J. Blige or Toni Braxton? You got my attention...

Try listening to some of her music then. Thinking the likes of Toni Braxton are more talented is laughable. I'm not going to knock Mary though....she's a queen.

I've listen to her "music". The judgment stands. We agree to disagree, but IMO she's mediocre talent

If she's "mediocre" then Braxton is the equivalent of pulling a straw in and out of a McDonald's cup. Sounds to me like your views are more "anything popular sucks; I only like this niche stuff you probably haven't heard of" rather than actually being based on the content.

Re: Does anybody feel ashamed about Beyonce Knowles?

All the artists so far mentioned in this thread are pretty far out of my preferred music tastes, but it seems pretty obvious that Beyonce has quite a bit of talent. I do wonder where Britney would be today if she wouldn't have had all the issues she did over the last decade or so.

Re: Does anybody feel ashamed about Beyonce Knowles?

What's extra-funny is that the OP talks specifically about Britney's abilities as a "songwriter". While she does have about 20 songwriting credits, they are not for any of her well-known songs.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catego...Britney_Spears

She's a fine performer, but her good songs and catchy sound is a product of Max Martin who is really under-appreciated by the general public. He's a genius. Seriously check out his Wiki page. He's had SO many hits in the past 20 years.

On the other hand, Beyonce actually is a very accomplished songwriter

Max Martin is why pop songs of the 2000s sounded the same.

I wish the music forum board here hadn't invested so many millions of dollars and hours in Beyoncé. We are duly chagrined.

I never liked most of Beyonce's major hits, and I actually far preferred Destiny's Child to her solo efforts, but this is the exception. I really loved this song.

Which TOTALLY explains why I like Braxton and Blige from that era. Some real obscure shit there!

I think the female pop musicians today are better than the ones in the late 90's and early 2000's.

Re: Does anybody feel ashamed about Beyonce Knowles?

I have never cared for Beyonce as a solo artist, but was a fan of Destiny's Child. JMO, of course, but her looks is what made her a Superstar. Put her talent in a average or below average looking woman, and I don't think she catches on. Can't blame her for taking advantage of her beauty though.

Re: Does anybody feel ashamed about Beyonce Knowles?

Naughty girl and Sweet Dreams and maybe Halo are the only songs I really like.

She is 39 but looks a lot older

She was a smokeshow in the early 2000's though she is not ugly now but hotter back then.
