i am pondering writing a livejournal rant on Destiny's Child. I suspect this is a bad idea. :))

A rant about why they won't ever let the third girl sing, hahaha. :)) And for that matter why are they
always singing about being from the frigging hood when everybody knows they grew up filthy rich in the Dallas suburbs?

and like what's with all their "i'm so much better than you girl" shit inherent in like every other song? "I'm not gonna compromise my christianity because of you but let me tell you how much YOU SUCK anyway right"

Clearly I have a lot to rant about.



Seriously, though, why won't they ever let Michelle sing? They're always going on about how they're all best friends, but this is clearly a "we're best friends so long as you only sing back-ups and two-line solos, wench" kind of friendship. And while I realise that Kelly's and Beyonce's voices blend together and work much better as a team than Michelle's, why the hell did they pick her if not for her singing? So get over the fact that she sounds twelve years old and that she doesn't have steel pipes like the other two of you and let the girl SING.

For that matter, what's with all this "We're doing so much better without our other two original members that now we're going to stop making albums so our lead singer can go do hideously embarrassing acting stints!" shit?

Dude, these babes could learn a lot about girl bands from, like, Heart. Or Wilson Phillips, even.

And the more I listen to their songs the more their particular brand of female empowerment bothers me. You're only an independent woman if you buy your own stuff? There seems to be this inherent message of, "it's okay to be as materialistic as you like as long as you're the one paying for it."

I think these days I'm leaning more to Christina for my girl power pop messages. I mean, there seems to be more real graciousness inherent in "Thanks for making me a fighter" than "I'm a survivor, you can't get to me, nana nana boo boo."

Not that I don't still love "Survivor" and "Independent Women". But also the fact that they never. let. the third. girl. sing. is so distracting that now whenever i hear them i'm like, "Gah!" more often than anything else.


Hahaha, this rant was just totally pointless, wasn't it? :))
