well, at least we now know where beyonce gets her "special-ness" from


BEYONCE KNOWLES' father MATHEW is furious the superstar was overlooked at the Golden Globe Awards, accusing the film industry of discriminating against blacks. The singer-turned-actress failed to pick up a single nomination for her role in DREAMGIRLS, and - despite Golden Globe wins for Afro-Americans FOREST WHITAKER, EDDIE MURPHY, PRINCE, Dreamgirls co-star JENNIFER HUDSON and the movie itself - Knowles Snr blames his daughter's omission on racism. He told reporters after the ceremony on Monday (15JAN06), "Today is MLK's (MARTIN LUTHER KING's) birthday and it saddens me to say that things have not changed for blacks. Working class blacks and blacks in Hollywood are still being discriminated against. We still have a long way to go."

I find this humorous because it's so ridiculous! As the article mentioned, there were many black winners! I have a newfangled idea...maybe she didn't win because she's actually not a really great actress (though I can't judge because the only movie I've seen her in is Austin Powers) Who did win? Oh, yes, that's right: MERYL STREEP. I really hope Mr. Knowles isn't insinuating that Beyonce is a better actress than Meryl Streep!
And did he really say nothing's changed since Martin Luther King died? That's grasping a little bit.
Anyways, cheers to Hollywood and its fantastic absurdity...

Yeah, her father's an egomaniac psychopath. I don't mean to be so blunt, but he's devilishly controlling (ala Michael Jackson's dad) and poison to her career...

Beyonce's latest album was produced and completed without her father's input (like he did in past albums) and I believe it's one of her best.

Who needs blackula anyway? I swear I'm not racist... lol.

Besos para ti.

pretty much I agree with everything you said. Beyonce is just a diva and apparently so is her dad.
