Beyoncé plays a sexy, gyrating bride in 'Best Thing I Never Had'

Beyonce-best-thing-I-never-had-video-400x300.jpg
Beyoncé just dropped a new video for power ballad "Best Thing I Never Had," which amazingly starts with a commercial for Beyoncé before proceeding into a music video about Beyoncé, and it was enough to scrape any remaining traces of disappointment from my brain lingering from Wednesday night's bummer of a Britney Spears show and remind us all who's really the Queen of Pop.

In this video, we learn a few things: Beyoncé makes a damn sexy bride, one that spends a great deal of prep time writhing around in her strappy lingerie getup before finally getting up the energy to put on her veil and dress; and if you ever do manage to put a ring on B, she's gonna spend your whole nuptial ceremony thinking about how happy she is she's not marrying her jerky high school boyfriend. Is this what they mean when they say that weddings are supposed to be all about the bride?

Commence grinding:


The ad leading up to the video also hints that Beyoncé's ready to "step back into the spotlight" and features images of her performing, which makes us wonder if we'll see a tour announcement soon. Given that her last show in town was pretty much one of the best shows evar, we can only hope.

Seriously? You liked that video? That was a boring ass video! And Beyawnce is not pretty! Do all black girls want to be white? Are you black Andrea?

Was there an official announcement when City Pages became the online newspaper partner of KDWB and B96?  I was under the impression it was, at least in theory, it was an "alternative" weekly...or something like that.  My weekly check in finds Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Beyonce posts dominating the landscape (and the last time I heard anything from this direction it was reported from a Rihanna concert).  Thank god you are covering these artists, because if you didn't, who would?  Luckily there are no local bands doing amazing thing or smaller national acts that deserve attention, because if you just parroted what Teen Beat was covering while ignoring all of that great music, that would be sad....right?

And may I add it looks like a cheap David's bridal ad! I seriously question your taste and and ability to write objectively! Damn, anyone can be a blogger now!

The goal is to have a little something for everyone. In the past 24 hours we've also posted about Olivia Tremor Control, Pink Mink, Girl Talk, a Radio K DJ, and published a checklist of shows to see this weekend that skews local. Don't let a lil Beyonce vid depress you, it's definitely not the only thing we've got going on around here.

hence your sad comment.... "and and"Get a grip. You hate the video and "Beyawnce" so bad but you sat on your tired butt and watched it.  In reference to you question "Do all black girls want to be white?"  Don't you wish a white girl had it going on like we do 'Sucky.'  That's right I'm beautiful and black.
