Beyonce did as Beyonce does and gave us perfection filled with underlying subliminal and black excellence as she has done since the super bowl performance of her hit song ‘formation.’
Now although my timeline is filled with everyone giving the girl credit when credit is due. Yes, both members of the BeyHive and those outside of the membership have eyes and we saw the same performance. We all saw that it was a lot of blood, sweat and tear put into this and the detail is amazing. As more Instagram pictures come up, we see that actual members of HBCU band, BGLO and majorettes were apart of this to ensure everything was done to perfection. You CAN give credit to someone doing an AMAZING job without being a stan.
However, I keep seeing people barking at their Facebook followers that people are complaining and “hating” on Beyonce. This leads me to believe that if you are a Beyonce hater and can’t see the excellence that she gives as a performer, then you are a hater and are not a good friend in real life.
Here are my reasons:
- Lack the ability to give credit when credit is due. Hater her or love her you can acknowledge the greatness that she gives the world as she walks in her purpose. To discredit that is unbelievable and if you can do that to a complete and perfect stranger, why wouldn’t they discredit your greatness and they actually know you.
- Beware of the “I don’t like her because everyone else likes her.” So your only reason for not liking someone is because too many other people like them? That sounds to me that you do not like someone because they are winning and have worked hard to build a fan base. So why would that person still like you once you start working in your purpose and build your fan base? This is the same type of person that says in your ear that you can’t have too many friends or wants to argue with you over who is their best friend.
- Beyonce is the type that brings her crew with her as she graces new stages. She brought her sister Solange, Destiny’s Child, and her Husband with her to Coachella. That’s the type of loyalty we should all aspire to be. Keep your Day 1s with you and allow you to share the spotlight with them. I love that and aspire to do the same with my crew. She does it best because she still keeps it about her while allowing others to win and that is quite frankly how it should be. We came to see Bey but enjoy the bonuses because it was short enough that we didn’t get irritated. When I win, we all win, but it is my show so you can come get some shine and then leave LOL. If you are someone that complains about Beyonce being loyal to those that helped her become the BEYONCE we know and love, your loyalty factors are all screwed up and we don’t want anything you are selling.
All in all, giving credit when people do great things is a maturity component that many people do not have. Yes, she is the popular girl who has stayed on top for decades, yes she has it all multiple kids, a husband, and is close to her family. Yes, she gives back and has multiple charities and donations in her name. Yes, she is woke and gives financially to the movement. Yes she is fine as wine and is getting better with age. Yes she is rich and her kids are set and she has made an empire for her family for generations to come. Yes this can be you if you work hard and play your cards right but by hating on her you wont win.
