Many things can and have been said about Beyonce Knowles and the buzz has heightened since she released her surprise album, which then broke records with its sales in the first three days. One thing that we can not accuse her of is getting into public feuds with people who say things to her or about her. Mrs. Carter generally seems to be gracious when in public and during her interviews and she has generally seemed to be good at letting mean spirited criticisms roll off her back.
It seem though that even the most gracious amongst us has a limit to what they will tolerate, as far as the haters go. Even though the singing sensation often seems indifferent towards all her “haters” it seems that she too has days when the “hating” gets a little under her skin.
Below the songstress admits that when she first worked on the song “bow down b!tches” it really was all about the “haters” :
“The reason I put down out ‘Bow Down’ is I woke up, I went to the studio, I had a chant in my head, it was aggressive, it was angry, it wasn’t the Beyoncé that wakes up every morning. It was the Beyoncé that was angry. It was the Beyoncé that felt the need to defend herself. And if the song never comes out…ok! I said it! And listened to it after I finished, and I said ‘This is hot! I’ma put it out. I’m not going to sell it. I’m just going to put it out. If people like it, great. If they don’t, they don’t. I won’t do it everyday because that’s not who I am. But I feel strong. And anyone that says, ‘Oh, that is disrespectful,’ just imagine the person that hates you. Imagine a person that doesn’t believe in you. And look in the mirror and say ‘Bow down b!tches’ and I guarantee you’ll feel gangsta!…So listen to the song in that point of view again if you didn’t like it before ”
What do you think? Should “haters” just be ignored or did they need to be told to “bow down”?
