An excerpt from a Rolling Stone article on Beyonce:

QUOTE
Beyonce has become a crossover sex symbol a la Halle Berry, a black girl who's not so overwhelmingly Nubian that white people don't appreciate her beauty. She's what Janet Jackson used to be: the tasteful sex symbol who's giving you R&B-flavored pop hits and state-of-the-art videos, tours and movies, too.

I think Beyonce is beautiful but I also think there's a lot of truth in what this writer is saying. Surprised Rolling Stone printed it though.

i really think beauty goes beyond all ethnicities, to the point where that doesnt even matter anymore, as cliched and mushy/corny as i must sound saying that

show me a white guy who doesn't dig Naomi Campbell. She is very dark.

I know there are plenty of white guys that find dark skinned black women attractive but it's the image of the light skinned, European looking black woman that's upheld in this society. Naomi isn't what the writer had in mind when he used the word "Nubian". I agree she's pretty but would she be as beautiful if she had a broader nose and lost the weave. You don't see very many black women who fit that description gracing the cover of magazines. That still seems to be a taboo?

Beyonce is just crazy bangin'..damn she's so sexy. And I've certainly seen no evidence of her being 'stuckup' either..

I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid. You're afraid of us, you're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end, I came here to tell you how this is going to begin. Now, I'm going to hang up this phone, and I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world without you. A world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world...where anything is possible.
Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

I don't know if it's the blonde hair or what, but in some of the recent photos I've seen, I didn't even recognize her ... then I'm like oh wait a minute, that's Beyonce blink.gif

I know what you mean laugh.gif Maybe it's not the hair...because she's been blonde in the past but you could still tell she was black. But recently.... blink.gif
