    People are just so crazy about Beyonce, they invest their actual feelings in her well being, it's baffling to me. What does Beyonce have to do with you?, she doesn't even know you. Don't get me wrong I enjoy her music yes, she is an entertainer, and she's good at it. But to go on...

    how Beyonce is one of the most influential women on the planet. How sad. While I can't deny her vocal talent, I don't understand why I should respect her hyper-sexuality in her videos. Hollywood is the most hypocritical community in the world. They give voice to issues like "gun...

    Like seriously what the hell?

    ! They are humans just like everybody else! They are in no way, shape or form better than anybody else! Yes they are very rich and can use plastic surgery to erase all their physical flaws but no human is perfect or should be worshipped and treated like some "god"

    The Kardashians.. are really taking over now

    for some reason. I have no idea why we look up to these people, shouldn't we look down on them? They are just using sex and nudity to move up the fame ladder :/ Shouldn't we instead look down on them? What is this world coming to, everything is so sexual.. :/
