Academy Award Nominee Beyonce Knowles is such a weird concept.

What you should do is repost last year's predictions and compare them with what was actually nominated. I'd like to see that.

Ugh, that picture of Beyonce (aka beyondShit) just reminds me how much I wish she would fuck off forever. The comparisons of her to Diana Ross are ridiculous. Beyonce is BEYOND boring and so is most of her music. That good little church girl routine doesn't work for me. At least if she just publicly acknowledged she was a spot light stealing greedy little whore, perhaps I could adore her like Ms. Ross.

I'm sorry, I am completely off topic here.....

Ok, this is a random gaggle of ladies here. Beyonce looks all done up and fancy-like. Mrs Hudson looks a little bit of a mess. And who is the other chick? Just a whole bunch of randomness! I sure hope the movie turns out ok!

If Beyonce sings And I Am Telling You, I'm boycotting; if Jennifer Hudson sings it, I'm going the day the damn movie opens.

Jennifer Hudson is playing Effie - not Beyonce! So, Amanada, you are safe!
