As if the entertainment world didn’t need another controversial feud between its players. On Saturday, Kid Rock started an internet war after taking shots at Beyonce in an interview. The rapper stated that he was dumbfounded as to why fans “worshipped” Beyonce.
“Beyonce, to me, doesn’t have a f—ing ‘Purple Rain,’ but she’s the biggest thing on Earth. How can you be that big without at least one ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ or ‘Old Time Rock & Roll’?”
He then said her adored body figure didn’t impress him since he was interested in “skinny white chicks with big tits.”
Beyonce’s clan of buzzing bees took their outrage to social media and ripped into the rock performer. The team fired shots such as “It never fails. Every time these hasbeens are out here flopping they take cheap shots at the throne,” and “Bey’s last album sold your whole week prediction in the 1st 15 min @KidRock go kick rocks. Your album is set to scan brick #priorities.”
While Kid Rock’s comments were a bit derogratory, especially the shot to her curves, he was speaking his mind. He’s not the only one who doesn’t understand the Beyonce obsession. She, no doubt, is an exceptional artist. Not just exceptional, but award-winning.
Although she doesn’t hold the singles that Kid Rock mentioned, but her infamous “Single Ladies” and “Dangeriously in Love” are still two of her memorable top chart records. Is she an icon? Yes. Is she a great entertainer? Absolutely. Should she be worshipped? Uh- no.
I have my list of favorite artists too, but I refuse to worship or obsess. When fans do that, they’re ignoring the most important part of the artist. They’re only human too. But hey, that’s just my opinion.
