Beyonce's New Music Video For "Girls" Is Lame In My Opinion

This is so meta. From a Facebook comment I left on my own linking of this video, I wrote:

"I won't be won over just by choreography. I think she's appropriating militarism in a way that she doesn't understand; and in a way that she's not even trying to understand. And the song feels like a straight-up rip-off of Major Lazer, and doesn't have any ambition for a unique use of the sample. So from here on out, let's just lift surprise underground hip-hop hits' choruses and input some uplifting words of empowerment. Plan. Break."

  1. Most of Beyonce's recent videos and songs are lame... it's a Shame she's a great voice... but... well... I might as well be honest...
