The anti Beyoncé thinkpieces and discussions are in full swing these days. Between her pregnancy announcement and the GRAMMYs, people have been trying to get a reaction out of me. Well, here you go!
Why I Don’t Entertain Anti-Beyoncé Debates
The BeyHive is full.
We good. We poppin. If you’ve ever tried to get tickets to a Beyoncé concert, you know exactly what this means.
Your opinion is YOUR opinion.
I’m a recovering Spice Girls and Mariah Carey stan. Needless to say, when it comes to my faves–I’ve had my fair share of hateration in this dancerie. Instead of worrying about why I love someone who doesn’t “know” me, worry about why you dislike someone who doesn’t know you.

Thoughts become things.
You do realize that talking about how overrated she is, or how much you don’t like is only bringing her more attention, right? To me, it’s similar to politics. Hence, I said similar, not the same. When you’re an advocate for a cause, bringing light to certain issues is necessary. But Beyoncé isn’t healthcare or minimum wage. Like, wyd? Where is your fave?! Go support them!
Me when people say Beyoncé is overrated, and they’re over the hype.
I do not “worship” Beyoncé.
Will I faint WHEN we make eye contact? Yes. Do I skip a few meals to buy tickets to her concerts? Yes. Am I keeping index cards with facts on why she’s one of the G.O.A.Ts to prepare for your anti Beyoncé debate? Nah. Some fans are on another level of obsessive when it comes to Queen Bey, but let them live! It’s not hurting me or anyone else, so it’s not my business.
This post goes against what I’m venting about, but I needed a written statement to direct people to in the future. I’ve silently sat through too many anti-Beyoncé debates. Yes, I adore her, but she doesn’t pay my bills. See what I did there? It would be a full-time job entertaining these conversations, and I ain’t got the time.
Are you a full-time anti Beyoncé debater? If so, your comment may not get published–but thank you for reading!
