BEYONCE’S SISTER SOLANGE TWEETED FOLLOWING HER BIG SISTER’S historic six Grammy-award cleanup.
Interpreted into the hip-hop equivalent, Solange basically said, “My sister is the shit, bitches, so get off Taylor Swift’s titties.”
Or to be literal, Beyoncé’s baby sis tweeted she was “having another Kanye rant moment.”
“My sister BROKE THE RECORD for the MOST GRAMMY’S IN ONE NIGHT BY ANY FEMALE…So why do I keep seeing ‘other artists’ as the night’s ‘big winner’… (Insert Kanye shrug here)??????
Don’t “blame it on the goose,” as Grammy-night performers Jamie Foxx and T-Pain would have; blame it on Kanye.
The perceived lack of attention to B’s accolades and achievements seems to rest on that one dark and gloomy night of the MTV awards.
Had Kanye never stolen the microphone from Swift and single-handedly made him America’s douche du jour by candidly announcing his feelings that Beyoncé’s Single Ladies should have won best music video while Swift was accepting the prize, B’d be basking in the unadulterated adulation her little sister commands.
One would imagine that Beyoncé got all the affirmation that she’s the shit after winning the Song of the Year nod, gaining ten nominations and winning six frickin’ Grammys in one night and going down in the history books.
To ease her pain which for some reason, is still not yet obvious because Solange wasn’t nominated for anything, including best-supporting sidekick pitching a diva-fit, the younger, less successful Knowles could do a few things. Among them:
Solange could just put on a brand new Dereon outfit (her sister’s successful, clothing line) put on I Am…Sasha Fierce (her sister’s latest Grammy-winning album) call Jay-Z up (her sister’s uber successful, rap-mogul husband) then go to a Nets’ game, (Jay just happens to be a part-owner of them) then go back to their mansion and cry in the wrinkled dollar bills that are no longer fit for shopping.
Other than that, just stop it. It’s not graceful to bitch and moan about a lack of praise for being great, which is why I assume a classier Beyoncé has remained mum on the deal.
We can’t neglect the fact that Swift is all new and shiny like a brand new penny. Add to that, Kanye’s infamous rant and slam and it will always leave Swift perceived as a puppy up for adoption whose owner tried to crush her head to get rid of it.
Moral of this story? Not to get sloshed on a gallon of Hennessy, interrupt a new artist’s acceptance speech to tell her that her video sucks in order to keep the playing balanced field. Okay?
