    Friday, January 12, 2007

    Pasted below is the Beyonce interview. Now before you all ask, "Why didn't you ask her that?", "Why didn't you ask about her age?" (there was a small comment about her age in the interview, but Blackplanet.com edited it out), "Why didn't you ask about popping her snatch for Jesus?" People, as I've said before, I am not Howard Stern, I am a freelance writer who gets paid for his job and you simply can't ask certain questions, or you will never get hired again. At any moment I was waiting for Momma Tina to storm the room with a bedazzled gown and toss me out of the hotel window!

    Beyonce was actually a great person to interview, BUT transcribing the interview was a struggle. Bey walks and talks with grammatical errors, she really needs to get some speech and pronunciation lessons. I don't think I've ever had to change was to were, has to have, is to are like I did in this interview. 50 Cent and Sean Paul were more articulate than her!
    Many people said I would NEVER get an interview with Beyonce because of the way I "attacked" her on my blog (people take things so seriously) ... well, YOU MUST NOT KNOW 'BOUT ME! lol

    Don't ya' just love Ne-Yo? Hmmm... that brings me to my favorite line of the interview, "I write my own songs, produce my own records and videos. I'm Curtis!" I guess the writers of "Listen" didn't agree (she is not eligible for an Oscar nomination for "Listen" -- adding a period and comma to a song doesn't mean you are a co-writer Bey!) and neither does Ne-Yo, who wrote "Irreplaceable."

    Beyonce: Ultimate Dreamgirl

    The interview was so long that some of it had to be cut. Pasted below is an exclusive excerpt, which includes her response to not being supportive of the gay community, her sexy stage persona and rumors.

    In her musical life, Beyoncé has always been the lead, which has gotten her into a bit of controversy over the years. For example, in 2003 she allegedly made homophobic comments about the “Britney and Madonna kiss” mixing it with her religious beliefs. While Beyoncé has denied the comments, they have come back to life with Dreamgirls being coined “the gay Lord of the Rings” due to the Broadway musical’s legendary gay following and the director, Bill Condon, who is an openly gay man. When bluntly asking Beyoncé whether she is not supportive of the gay community she quickly replies, “That is the silliest thing I've ever heard. No, that is really ridiculous -- couldn't be the furthest from the truth.” In addition, Beyoncé, and many of her R&B counterparts, have been criticized for being outwardly religious, but extremely sexual, and sometimes trashy, on stage. When asking if she is ever conflicted with her stage persona and her religious beliefs she answers, “To be honest, I don’t think about it. When I perform, I know that I'm having an out-of-body experience, and I know that what I give out comes back to me, and how I treat people, and the things I do, and the way I give back, comes back to me. It's not a conflict.” The songstress adds, “Sometimes I see things, I'll read things, and rumors are going on and I'm like, ‘What? Why is this happening to me?’ I know I'm going to be okay because everything I do is from the right place. I try to live by that, so I know I'm going to be fine. I know it's a lesson and it's going be something great that comes out of all of that.”
