Here she is. Lady Miss B. Smoking a fag. From her new album of songs and videos. Haven’t heard of it? No, nor has anyone else.
While the likes of Gaga are hitting us over the head with songs and outfits and videos and what have yous months before there’s anything to actually, you know, buy, Beyonce (still haven’t found that acute accent… anyone?), out of a puff of smoke, hits us with an album with 14 songs and 17 videos. Available for ready money (£12.99 if you’re interested) on iTunes. Right now! No fuss, no mess, no boring the bollocks off us for weeks.
And while it will take us quite a while to get our heads around so many songs and videos (including one by Terry Richardson), we do love a stunt. Especially a cunning one.
Oh, and there’s a song/video on there – ‘Haunted’ – that is apparents a tribute to Madonna’s ‘Erotica’ and ‘Justify My Love’. We actually think we are excited by a record for once in our lives!
Break it to us like that, why don't you, Beyonce? A new album. Out of nowhere!,
