So Bey and Jay are in the middle of the On The Run turn and 75% of the women and gay men I know are going crazy. Folks were frantically buying tickets, searching for the freshest outfits and securing carpools to make it to the nearest venue. I just don’t get it. Bey is an amazing performer, I’ll give her that. But paying $200 to see her sing and dance is a bit much. Plus the $100 or so you’ll spend on your outfit, $80 in gas, $150 for the hotel over night and you know you gotta eat too. Just whoa! I heard some chick got her car repossessed but still managed to get tickets to the show. You’ve gotta be kidding me people. It’s not that serious. I don’t care if Michael Jackson was reincarnated and showed up to perform along side Bey for a tribute to Whitney Houston and Tupac, there are just some things that I think people invest too much time, money and energy into. I’ll just buy the DVD.
