Annie Lennox Slams Beyonce

Annie-Lennox-annie-lennox-30368059-600-800

According to the Dailymail,

Annie Lennox does not seem to be a big fan of today’s young pop stars.

The legendary Scottish singer, who found fame as one half of the internationally acclaimed group the Eurythmics alongside Dave Stewart, was asked in a recent interview to further explain comments she made earlier this year that Beyonce was not a ‘feminist,’ but rather a ‘feminist lite.’

And Lennox did not hold back.

‘It’s not – it’s not liberating, it’s not empowering. It’s a sexual thing that you’re doing on a stage; it doesn’t empower you. That’s my feeling about it.’

In addition to Beyonce, twerking has been a big part of musical artists like Rihanna and Miley Cyrus’ recent stage and music video performances.

In the interview, the singer also broke down just what her problem is with pop music these days.

‘The reason why I’ve commented is because I think that this overt sexuality thrust — literally — at particular audiences, when very often performers have a very, very young audience, like 7 years older, I find it disturbing and I think its exploitative. It’s troubling. I’m coming from a perspective of a woman that’s had children,’ she explained.

This whole debate began when Lennox was asked what she thought about the 33-year-old labeling herself a feminist while on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards back in August.

‘I just love her performances – but I’d like to sit down [with her]. I think I’d like to sit down with quite a few artists and talk to them. I’d like to listen to them; I’d like to hear what they truly think,’ Lennox said at the time to Pride Source.

Lennox also seems to be well aware of how polarizing her opinion on the subject is, telling Inskeep at the end of their interview, ‘Maybe this is a good thing because it creates debate.’

The singer was on the program to promote her new album, Nostalgia.

She is the only female artist in music history (and just the fourth artist ever) to twice have an album (2012’s RED and 2010’s Speak Now) hit the 1 million first-week sales figure. With RED, Taylor became the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at #1 with three consecutive studio albums. RED has topped the Billboard 200 Albums Chart for seven weeks, following Fearless (11 weeks), and Speak Now (six weeks).

Hip-hop artist Teyana Taylor seems to be making waves in the preparation for releasing of her new album,VII.  According to Vibe Magazine, to say that she is “killin’ it in these streets” is an “understatement” for the singer.

Apparently her lower torso is quite the thing, Baller Status remarked how “toned” Taylor’s abdominal muscles were in the photos.

But in some opions, “killin’ it on the web”, may be a the more appropriate expression for Taylor. Singer’s Room called her video, “Do Not Disturb”, “sensual and seductive”. They were also thrilled by “her killer abs”. The writing staff of Necole Bitchie’s blog were more concerned about whether the man, who lays claim to the room she’s prowling through, Teyana+Taylor+Premiere+TriStar+Pictures+Jumping+INix5iGdcExl is in a committed relationship with her. “We hope it’s her man with how she’s rolling around in his bed, smelling his clothes and going through his luggage,” the blog published, “she’s getting her grown and sexy on in this one so dim the lights and hold your boo close”

According to the Los Angeles Times newspaper, Abercrombie & Fitch Co. has sued singer Beyonce Knowles, saying her plan for a fragrance named after her alter ego Sasha Fierce violates the teen clothing retailer’s trademark. The chain, which has sold a men’s fragrance called Fierce since 2002, wants a court to order Knowles to abandon the plan. Abercrombie has held a trademark for the word “fierce” since 2003, according to the lawsuit it filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Columbus, Ohio. A publicist and an attorney for Knowles did not immediately return e-mails and a call seeking comment.

Destiny’s Child — the pop group’s name suggests the favor of fate and birthright, and there’s never been a doubt about which member is the designated child of destiny. In Destiny’s Child, Beyonce Knowles is supreme in the way Diana Ross once was a Supreme.

Beyonce Knowles was born on September 4, 1981 in Houston, Texas. She is five years older than her only sister, Solange Knowles. Beyonce was raised by both of her parents in Houston, Texas. Although she came from a middle class family, Beyonce attended the High School of the Visual and Performing Arts. At first, Beyonce took jazz and ballet class until one day when her dance instructor heard her beautiful and melodious voice. She loved choir lessons and was very good at them. Her family encouraged her efforts because of her amazing voice. Although Beyonce did not go to college, she became a famous R&B (rhythm and blues) singer.220px-Beyonce_Knowles_with_necklaces
