New York Magazine comes for Sasha Fierce!


Hey Snobbers,
I know I can be a harsh critic sometimes. And I know my opinion can often times border on Hatin'. But I must give props where props are due.
Recently I read a post on New York Magazine's fashion blog The Cut where they chopped Beyonce's alter ego, Sasha Fierce.

Now while I appreciate Beyonce's chicken-head anthems and love the music she used to make, (Hello!! Paging whoever wrote her first album! SOS...Come Back ASAP), I must let her know that this whole Sasha thing has gone too far!! So while I been busy workin' hard for The Man, New York Mag's very own Amy Odell did the damn thang with this consise and honest appraisal of Beyonce's new look.

Seriously Snobbers, this is the type of critqueing and writing that make me wanna get out out of be everyday. It makes me proud to pick up a pen and assualt the English language the way do.
Check out the post below, titled "Sasha Has Gone Edgy, and We Don't Find It Fierce".

Soo effin' good...
It all started with that metal glove. Beyoncé flourishes it while she dances in her "Single Ladies" video in an otherwise pretty conventional, er, leotard. But then the red-carpet appearances and live performances started. Beyoncé couldn't let that metal glove go. She wore it on the carpet a week ago at the MTV Europe Music Awards. She kept it on for her performance, paired with a dress by Gareth Pugh. Since when does Beyoncé wear Gareth Pugh? we wondered. But that was just the beginning. She performed in the glove again at the World Music Awards, where she wore Alexander McQueen. And the other day we were perusing the art for her new album, I Am Sasha Fierce, and there she was dressed as a motorcycle again wearing the metal glove (does that thing never pinch?). Spoiled Pretty noticed that glove and motorcycle top also appear in George Michael's video for "Too Funky" directed by none other than Thierry Mugler. Gareth Pugh, Alexander McQueen, and Thierry Mugler, B? So many cutting-edge outfits and one metal glove do not a high-fashion diva make. Especially when the styling is all wrong. Beyoncé's hair and makeup more closely resemble Sarah Palin's than vampy Parisian runway chic. A half-pony and a smoky eye? Some hoop earrings with Gareth Pugh? It's almost as if she's just half-heartedly trying but doesn't want to jump in with both stiletto-clad feet. Which, alas, does not make her fierce at all. If you, Beyoncé, are Sasha Fierce, then we are Sasha confused.

Speak the truth! The hair has been bugging me! Sasha is fierce but she rocks school teacher hairstyles??? Though single ladies is addictive and I admire the aerobics she does in heels I just don't think her heart and soul is there. Is marriage taming her ambition a lil? Making her lazy? Maybe she will finally do what I've been suggesting. Disappear for a while and make non groupies like me actually miss u!

honestly my first words were the same! since when does Beyonce wear Gareth Pugh really?? I have a strong feeling she's been around a lot of flamboyant gay men lately, and they all must been saying Gareth is "fierce" jeez.
