I Love Parodies

I am not a fan of a lot of the music the younger generation listens to these days. Man that makes me sound old, but I don't know how else to say it.

For some reason a while back, I saw a video of Beyonce's song "Put a Ring on It'. It was one of the most excruciatingly painful things I have seen for a while and could not bring myself to watch the entire three and half minutes of it. Thank goodness we live in a free society and I could turn it off.

Today, I came across this video of the same song. Still three and a half minutes, but I was hooked. I thought it was so funny and I hope you do too.

I couldn't embed her actual video, which really didn't disappoint me, but I wanted you to see it if you hadn't already. Let's just say, the gentleman in this video are dressed for a blizzard compared to what she and her dancers have on in the actual video! I am sure her momma is so proud!

HA!! That was great. I've never seen Beyonce's video, but if it's like the couple I HAVE seen, I'm guessing it basically consists of her wearing a napkin and gyrating all over the place.

Yeah, I don't care much for secular music these days...

Oh, and whatever she was wearing in the real video, her momma probably WAS proud - she (at least used to) designs all of Beyonce's costumes. Er, I mean clothes. Have you ever seen the atrocities Beyonce's sister Solange wears from the "House of Dereon"? (That's their designer clothing line). UGLY.

Anyway, that video was hilarious, thanks for sharing!!

Very funny! And since I don't like Beyonce - even funnier!

Very funny - Julie was right - Beyonce's mom designs a lot of the small pieces of material they wear. I believe the concept is - anything for money.
