    Not that good a song, unoriginal, sounds like album filler material , and to think that she’s been working on this album for like 2 years and all the music so far is mediocre. Expected much better from her, I mean this was the album that was suppose to seal the deal and confirm her as a legend, but looks like she’s dropped the ball big big time. On other news CANNOT WAIT FOR NEW MATERIAL FROM THE DIVA SUPREME, MARIAH!!!!

    Your teaching me to move on and not kill myself. This entire time I was confused cause I know I’m a woman of God. ;). He was so mean…..

    Oh dear. More oversing. I also notice she dont go out in the sun to the beach or enjoy the sunny outdoor long enough. Its like she has a fear of getting tanned and prefer to be pale and bleached.

    Damn Says:

    My god she is so damn OVERRATED.

    @teamMariah: If you are hating on Beyoncé just because you prefer Mariah , i’d like to mention that these too are friends and spent vacations together … You don’t hate now right ? Urghhh LAME !

    Ann Says:

    What does J-Hud have to do with this song? It’s not her song and her voice is way different than B”s but I wouldn’t say it is better. Why this unnecessary comparison?

    “Huh…Who is that white girl under Beyonce’s name?” Is what I thought while clicking on this. I’m still wondering.

    She’s lookin…. she’s lookin’ pretty white lately.

    4BEE Says:

    She has a light in front of her face + the flashes of cameras , of course her skin is white you dumb ! And she always looked that way except that lately she’s blond so that make her skin look ‘ whiter ‘ you people always see bad things and make up doesn’t help either !

    Standerd stuff from her, its pretty nice.

    @4BEE: Don’t get your Beyonce panties in a twist. It’s no secret that the woman is slowly becoming lighter and lighter. In our society where being dark-skinned is some sort of curse (I obviously don’t agree) one who is socially conscious and aware can’t help but notice that something isn’t right…

    And the mere fact that she simply refuses to embrace all aspect of a black woman (i.e., bleaching her hair/skin, relaxing/straightening her hair/weave) she’s perpetuating the idea that being black isn’t cool. That’s how I see it, so that’s how I’m calling it.

    And, you don’t know me so I’m going to let you know now that I’m not a dumb !, I’m really very intelligent. :)
