Ethos boost
25 May 2013 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Sorry,Beyonce, but what did you want to tell with this film?

In the interview in the beginning you say ''Before the internet, people weren't taking pictures of you, or exploiting your personal life as entertainment. (...) When Nina Simone put out music, you loved her voice, and that is what she wanted you to love. That was her instrument. But you didn't get brainwashed by her every-day life, who she's dating, what her child is wearing (...) all the things that is not your business''...

OK, but is this not exactly what you do with this film, Beyonce? Sorry, but this is really contradicting the whole idea of the film, where you obviously are trying to boost your ethos.

''... It shouldn't influence the way you listen to the voice and the art, but it does''...

I'm glad you are at least self conscious about it. But please spare me for the childhood tapes. So go in the studio, make a motherfucking album and put a motherfucking ring on me. My four stars go to your hotness...
