Not if the true legends were to have anything to say about it! razz

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

...LOL...I know the Title of this thread gotta be a Trick question...B-Girl became a LEGEND when she racked up nearly 20-GRAMMYS...Career #1, She was in one of the Best Selling Female Groups in the World. Career #2, She's produced Solo Hit CD's & Singles and sells out stadiums around the world. She did all of that by the age of 30 and still selling out today...So yeah she's paving her road to Divadom in Solid Gold...

She is already a legend in the making.

She is a great performer, a great singer, her albums are pretty good and accessible, she has iconic videos, iconic persona, and her marriage with Jay Z just took things to another level, they became a royal couple, respected by everyone in the game.

I say this as much as I think that Beyoncé is controled by some anyonymous organization that promotes sex, sex and sex.. It's all about that today, you don't get to hear slow jams that are for open interpretation, they all come straight, rip my shirt off, touch my thighs and fuck me... That's something Beyoncé popularizes to her fans as feminism.. and speaking of that, didn't she say that one time in that one interview that women will never be equal with men, that's rather upsetting comming from a woman who's supposed to be a feminist and all of that, and if she thinks that why bother doing all that stuff... Beyoncé is obviously not her self ever since she married Jay Z, it's money & absoulte fame for appearing half-naked and promoting this sexualized materialized movement that many follows.

While I want to say no, Beyonce will be a legend based on her accolades alone. I don't know how people consider her iconic in any way outside of maybe her flawlessly gorgeous image. She's a great vocalist, not a great singer and her music in recent years isn't much to write home about. I think the love for Beyonce stems more from the early part of her career when she was still a part of DC as well as the first few years/ albums of her solo career that followed rather than ger entire career. Marrying Jay Z and creating what many consider to be a power couple certainly helped her as well although it never really seemed to be intimate or truly authentic and then they have a kid on top of that that people can't shut up about which ultimately comes back full circle to praising Beyonce.

She's about 70% hype and press. If she is considered a legend down the line then I can't help but think her status will be pretty low when put on the same platform as people we consider legends now, especially women. Beyonce just hasn't impacted music like her predecessors have and it'll be even more obvious when she's lumped with the true elite.

Beyonce will be marketed as a legend.. But I doubt she will be a legend.. I'm a college student, and literally every person I have ever talked to about beyonce, or when ever she comes up, words like "overratted" are ALWAYS used. And this is the young people of today who are saying this.. So no, I think everyone is equally tired of Beyonce.

To her gay fans she birthed Jesus. To me her music is average and white washed. Beyonce is a legend to hair spray and killing the ozone layer.

I'm very happy actually. I know her gay fans can just ''shade''and ''yass'' and then say how people are jealous. And they start to sound clones after awhile.

I'm making good money, eating good ass, eating good food, working out everyday, licking good feet, drinking good water. My life is amazing and i just care about the children Bey is sacrificing to the illuminati. And how many birds she's killed with her fake weave sprays.

I drank some water today. My pee was kind of that dark color. It smelled like cocunut. But after more water it was clear. Smelled more like sea breeze.

Nope. Never in the same realm of being remotely close to the level that Beyonce has been called overrated. Inversely, Beyonce will never be in the same realm of being remotely close to the level that Michael, Prince, and any other legend is on in terms of impact, artistry, stature, or talent.

Yes. She's already got almost 20 years in the game and with her latest album, pretty much changed the music industry with her approach to releasing music. At this point, her and Usher are the last true icons of music.

I fail to see how she changed the music industry in any way by doing something that she wasn't the first to do in releasing an album out of nowhere.

Beyonce's impact is undiniable. You do realize she is the most cited inspiration for most female artists comming out today. She's a great singer, incredible performer and has sustained relevance for nearly 20 years. Outside of that she is a savvy business woman, she's a level headed individual not caught up in fhe contreversys most modern female public figures experience. Shes been with her man for over 10 years, has a beautiful daughter and has managed to build a multi million dollar empire for herself. Its no doubt most of the newer artists aspire to be like her.

Be that as it may, she hasn't made any significant changes to the music industry at all despite being around for nearly 2 decades. And I honestly have yet to hear anybody cite Beyonce as an inspiration for why they pursued a career in music.


Also, she's a great vocalist, not a great singer.
