6 Reasons I Literally Can't Afford To Be A Beyoncé Fan Anymore

Bey, I am not happy with you right now.

6 Reasons I Literally Can't Afford To Be A Beyoncé Fan Anymore

I have made a heartbreaking decision... I can no longer be a die-hard Beyonce fan. I'm sorry, but I've had enough. I used to be Beyonce's biggest fan. I love her music, I worship her dancing, I crave her confidence. But, things have changed in my old icon that I'm not sure I support anymore. Here are the reasons why I just can't go on being a member of the Beyhive to the extent that I used to be:

1. Her music isn't free anymore

I haven't even listened to all of Lemonade yet. When Beyonce decided to only make her latest album available through apple music and tidal, that really made me mad. I used to not like Taylor Swift for this reason. You are so rich, why don't you share your music with more people/fans and do it for free? AND she made her visual album release only on HBO, which you have to pay extra for a subscription to. I have only seen parts that are in her FREE youtube version of music videos from the album.

2. Her tickets are insanely pricey

I was so freakin' pumped when I heard rumors about an On The Run Tour II happening. As soon as tickets went up for sale though, i was so shocked. If i wanted to be even relatively close, i had to pay more than 400 dollars. That is insane to me. Again, you and Jay-Z are millionaires- why do your tickets need to be this expensive?!

3. She's kind of arrogant

I used to love that Beyonce was proud and confident, and that bitch. But what the hell is this? Who announces a pregnancy like this? This was just so weird to me. I know her fanbase is huge, but an announcement this gaudy seems really narcissistic to me. There are plenty of other examples of Beyonce being full of herself- let's just leave it at this: she has a temperature controlled room in her home for all of her photographs and interviews... OH! she also had to have THE LOUVE completely rented out just for her and jay-z to use for a video... like really?

4. I don't think I can be on board with this whole giving jay-z another chance thing

I mean how do you cheat on one of the most beautiful, rich, and talented women in the world? He ain't cute, or talented in my opinion, and after you bash him on an entire album, how is your fanbase supposed to just be okay with it? Everybody just pretends like it never happened anymore and the old Beyonce I knew and loved wouldn't put up with this shit.

5. She doesn't sing anymore

This new joint album she's doing with Jay-z, going by the name of "The Carters" is not for me. In their single "Apeshit", Bey doesn't even sing. She's talking. She is one of the most talented woman vocalists of all time and she ISN'T USING HER VOICE. WHY? I am not here for a rapping Beyonce. I miss true vocalists.

6. The beyhive is starting to get scary

You can't say nothing about Bey without being emotionally and verbally attacked by her fans. People are freakin' passionate. People destroyed Amber Rose when she compared Beyonce's stage outfits and dancing to that of strippers... they said some pretty horrible stuff. I don't know if I want to associate with people that aggressive... Not every single member of the beyhive is vicious, I know that, but speaking generally, it doesn't seem like the friendliest fandom.

I will always love Beyonce. No doubt about it. But lately, it just hasn't been the same. Maybe I'm totally wrong and this is all in my head, but I just feel as though her attitude changed, her music changed, and her values changed.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes

If you can't invest time, money, and YOURSELF, maybe say no to the offer for the bride's sake!

Being in a wedding is a really big commitment. I personally think if you've never been in one before, you don't understand the time, money, and energy that goes into being a part of it.

I'll admit it, when I first met you, I wasn't sure how well things were going to work out. Although I didn't know you that well at the time, we seemed to be opposites in almost every way. You were cool, edgy, and laid-back, and I was more awkward, goofy, and anxious.

The Caribbean is a place where people go for vacation, but if you set out from a cruise ship you miss out on all the beautiful culture. Their exotic beaches are nothing without their zinging food and hospitality. Locals in the Caribbean are warmhearted with a zest to live life to the fullest.

This is exactly where most of their words and phrases come from, having a good time. I definitely enjoyed myself living in the Caribbean, but it's not always about lounging. They get work done too and I've learned proper phrases for accomplishments.
