Beyoncé to Release New Album in 2010!
November 22, 2009 § 4 Comments
Looks like the ever-fierce Beyoncé is coming out with a new album in 2010. On the last leg of her “I Am…” tour in the UK, B apparently told the crowd:
“I’ll see you in a year with a new album.”
Yay!!! This girl just doesn’t stop!
I’m really curious about the direction this new album will take. I felt like “Sasha Fierce” was totally schizophrenic. Does she want to be a Gay Diva (Radio); a ghetto hoochie momma (Video Phone) or a pop star (Single Ladies)????!?!?!? WHICH YOU IS IT, B???
There’s a reason “Sasha Fierce” doesn’t have any consistency: Beyoncé is not really all that creative! Sure, she has a lotta money to hire the best folks out there, and she can sing and has plenty of fierceness, but you can’t buy creativity. As I said in a talk I gave about her last year at Columbia University, Beyoncé just finds whatever is hot and steals it. It’s totally genius, just not very interesting. Case in point: Lady Gaga is hot = Beyonce puts her in the Video Phone video.
Hmmm. If her collab with Lady Gaga on Video Phone is telling, maybe on the next album she’ll take a page out of the Lady Gaga Handbook and slit her wrists on stage wearing a chrome orbit…
