10 Reasons We're Not Excited For This New Beyonce Project

Beyonce is really starting to get on our last nerves.

She has zero regard for our edges or lives because if she did, she would give us a proper year to get our lives before springing another pearl clutching moment on us like this epic Beyonce project. You would think after December 13, 2013—Beyonce's music game changer—she would have given us a few months to recover. But instead she kept on snatching wigs around the world by extending her Mrs. Carter World Tour, starting her joint On The Run Tour with Jay Z, and then turning the VMAs to the BeyMAs with her legendary 15-minute melody. However even that isn't enough.

Now with no disregard for the holidays, Mrs. Carter is coming to dominate the fourth quarter with another Beyonce project, Beyonce: The Platinum Edition. And this isn't just any album, it's a four disc deluxe set that includes her original album, six extra tracks, 17 music videos, and a DVD of the MCWT. She's also bringing friends like Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, Mr. Vegas, Pharrell Williams, and of course Jay Z to aid her in completing another music domination. Well Yonce, we're not here for it.

Flip the page to check out the 10 reasons we're not excited for another Beyonce project.


Just when our edges were starting to grow back since she changed the music marketing game in 2013, she's coming to snatch them again.

It's not fair to the other artists dropping music this year because how can anyone compete with a four-disc release?


Just when we were beginning to think she was human as she's been spending quality family time, she reminds us that she's not. We're still trying to figure out how she has time to do it all.

Our edges have yet to fully return after the 'On The Run Tour.'

We thought we were going to be great this year and now we're reminded that as long as Beyonce's still making music, we can never reach our full level of greatness.


It's the same week as Thanksgiving, Bey are you taking that too? Is it Beygivings this year? Just let us know so we know how to prepare.

It's right before Black Friday. Now we have to readjust our budget because if we want to buy five copies of Beyonce: Platinum Edition, someone in our family is out of their christmas present (checks to see which family member has been naughty).


She could've at least waited until our follicles returned after her BeyMAs performance that had us questioning what took MTV so long to recognize.

We're still trying to figure out how she fits everything in her 24 hours of the day. Now we're wondering what we're doing with our lives.

But in actuality, who are we kidding. We are very much here for this Beyonce project. We've already written November 24th in our calendars. We're timing how fast we can type in our credit card information, and ready to camp out on our computers for Beyonce: Platinum Edition.

Beyoncé, Rihanna, And J. Lo Make Forbes’ Highest-Paid Women In Music List

As November comes to a close, many publications will be crafting their year-end lists for all things pop culture. Forbes released a ranking of the world's highest-paid women in music on Monday (Nov. 19), with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna holding it down for women of color.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
