Here is an AWESOME Youtube video I found that encasuplates Beyonce's ENTIRE videography, including soundtrack singles and features. I think its great for any new Beyonce` fan to see to really appreciate and get familiar with her body of work.
ABC News has reported that Mathew Knowles, Beyonce’s father, will no longer be her manager, as stated in a press release given by her publicist (see story link below). This distresses me as a fan. Managerial and record label support is key in keeping a career thriving and stable. So many recording artists’ careers have been negatively affected as a result of struggles and disputes with their management, and they have had to switch management teams several times. I’m concerned that Beyonce` is opening herself up to that threat. Receiving unwavering managerial support is not an issue when your manager is a parent. Furthermore, that parent-manager has more motivation to compromise and settle differences because of their familial tie. Part of Beyonce’s success is her family owned/operated business network. The protection of family has kept her safe personally and entrepreneurially. This could get sketchy, but hopefully, there’s nothing to worry about. No matter what, I pray that all of Beyonce’s endeavors and business decisions lead to her success and joy.
1st Kelly Rowland leaves Music World Management in 2009, then Michelle Williams in 2010, and now Beyonce`. What gives?
What do you fellow "Bees" think of all this??

A Youtube video I made just for fun. Note: Kelly Rowland did NOT fall; she passed out from dehydration. All of the girls were okay after their stage falls, fortunately.
Please hit the comment button and let me know what Beyonce` solo album you think is the best AND WHY. I personally choose "Dangerously in Love" because it was incredibly unorthodox, having an old-school R&B sound (very 70's). It was so unorthodox that her record label didn't expect any of songs to be commercially successful as singles (ref. I Am...Yours DVD). It takes courage to take such an artistic risk, and it takes skill/talent to be able to modernize an older sound for a younger audience. Furthermore, the lyrical writing on the album was fantastic and Beyonce` displayed some soulful vocals. What album do you choose?

Seriously Beyonce`, WTH?!?
Most people figure out pretty quickly that I LOVE Beyonce`. She is my queen diva of choice. But every now and then, she does something that irritates or perplexes me. Here, I tell what's been buggin me about the Bee lately (with reviews and love for the Queen Bee in between).
