There's something in my eye.

There's a lot of great things happening in Jay's blogpost/video.

1) "Sometimes you need perspective. You’ve been right in front of greatness so often that you need to step back and see it again for the first time." And that's all well and good, but then you realize the "greatness" he's talking about Beyonce and her talent. He's standing up for her. That is really sweet and nice.

2) The video is great.

3) Andy WarHOV??? SO GOOD!

This whole thing reminds me of this freestyle he did at his 'Fade to Black' concert about Bey that was insanely nice and heartfelt. (Video here:, it's towards the end.)

I could not stand the performance last night on AI. But this version, I love.
I think taking away the teeny boppers and smarmy Seacrest and just hearing her sing the song, makes such a difference.

This makes me sad all over again about Beyonce's mediocre ranking in the old scientific ranking of divas piece. I mean, I know it was scientific and all. So there can be no possible arguing. But I would like to enter this into evidence for the next such study, and I hope it would help Beyonce place higher, as I think she should.

@Dave Bry I agree. Last year, I was flipping around on DirecTV and they had some sort of "Beyonce' Live in Brazil"(or somewhere). After about 30 seconds, I was hooked. She just works so damn hard. The dancing, the singing, the costumes, the hair, the drama….she's the complete diva package in a good way.

@awlsome: Cloud of dust just blew in at my house.

People keep trying to convince me not to like this song and they can go STRAIGHT TO HELL.
