Maybe the coffee hasn't kicked in yet, but I can't see how to both pull the trigger and get caught in the bolt on any rifles with the same appendage.

.... Beyonce is a niche performer? Smiley: dubious When "Put a ring on it" came out a few years back, you couldn't step into any place that had a radio station playing on the overhead speakers without hearing it at least once. She's one of the modern pop divas, has won multiple Grammies, and has been the subject of gossip rags for a decade.

She sang at Obama's first inauguration ball.

Just because you have not really heard much about a performer does not mean you can extrapolate that "60% of superbowl viewers" had only heard her by name and didn't know her songs either. Even my 70+ year old in-laws knew "Put a ring on it."

What places are we talking about? You do realize that once you get away from the "clothing stores catering to teens", that's a very small percentage of "places", right? Not a huge intersection between that and the demographics of all Superbowl viewers.

The fact that I've heard of her at all indicates such, but does not change the fact that her actual music is relatively niche.

Battling anecdotes then. Whatever. Her show still sucked though. The sound was so bad, that even if I had happened to have heard one of her songs at some point on the radio, or whilst walking through a store at some point, I'd never have recognized it anyway. I mean, there are lots of songs that I recognize, and could even sing along to, but couldn't tell you the name of the song or the artist. And if the artist of those songs were performing the Superbowl, I might not know what they sing based on their name, but I'd be like "oh. I've heard that song. And that one. And that one", while listening to the performance. There was zero of that during her show.

Pop music is not niche. Just because you're not into it Gbaji, doesn't mean it's niche. I'm not a fan of her music either, but it didn't suck more than any of the other "pop" acts they've had during the Superbowl over the last few years.

Obama, Michelle, & their kids like her music so you don't. We get it.

Racist.

You must not go anywhere other than "clothing stores that cater to teens". Stop being a perv and get out some more.

Why bother saying anything else? You have your opinion on her quality. Her popularity isn't in question anywhere else.

Yes it did. Sound was terrible no matter whether you liked her music or not. I just think that more people are willing to ignore that poor performance for some reason. I wonder what it could be?

Quote:

I think it's that Obama and his family like her music, so many people feel they should as well. Or at least they should not criticize her in any way, since that might also be taken as a criticism of Obama. And they feel they must disagree with anyone who does criticize her music/performance. Perhaps by calling them racist.

Lol! Perhaps. But I have tons of teenage nieces, nephews, and cousins and I'm subjected to their **** rock and roll music (or what passes for it) all the time. Can't say I've ever heard a Beyonce song though. Or if I did, I wasn't aware she was the artist (ie: nothing about her music sticks out for me), and certainly didn't recognize any of the stuff she performed during the halftime show. In contrast, I'd probably recognize half a dozen Lady Gaga songs plus whatever current teen stuff is out there which I probably couldn't name the artist, but would at least recognize as something I'd heard. But nothing I heard on that show was recognizable. Again, part of that could be the horrendous sound work, but that's part of why it was a terrible show.

Oh, I realize what it is now. I live in a racially and culturally diverse area of the country and allow myself to be exposed to stuff. Gbaji lives in a culturally diverse area, but holes himself up in his sheltered world and deliberately avoids new things and experiences.

It's okay. You don't have to like Beyonce. You can think she's overrated (she is) and that she gave a terrible performance (I disagree.) All those are perfectly valid opinions and you're welcome to have them.

You cannot, however, argue that she is niche. You want niche? Drive By Truckers is niche. (And you might like them better, for all I know.)

She's had 29 songs on the Billboard's Top 20 chart and seven #1 spots.

Look, Gbaji's just a dope. There isn't actually an argument for whether or not she's "niche".

If I wanted to engage in this argument, I would point that Beyonce/Destiny's Child sold 24 million albums, in the US alone, prior to Obama's 2008 election. That's in the top 10 for artists whose careers have existed entirely in the post-Napster era (since 1999).
