People who like Beyonce are myopic and probably get all their entertainment spoon fed to them.
She is mediocre at best, but who can blame the woman for capitalizing on it all the way to the bank? She is a miracle thanks to marketing.
There are much more captivating and innovative performers out there, and in no way could this woman categorize herself as an artist for all the ripping off/inspiration-claiming she does.
Liking Beyonce is like drinking White Zinfandel from Yellowtail in a bar that offers 18 year single malt scotches, Anejo Tequilas and beautiful French wines from vintages like 2003 and 1997. Simple taste, mass distribution, nothing special or unique, but it’s highly consumable.
