So by now we all know that Beyonce did not win either of the Golden Globe awards she was up for Monday night. Best Original Song went to Prince, and Best Lead Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical/Comedy went to Meryl Streep. The latter was expected. But apparently Beyonce's father Matthew Knowles cannot get over the fact that his daughter actually lost an award, even if both of them were to living legends. This is his statement to the press directly after the Golden Globes Monday night.
Today is Martin Luther King's birthday and it saddens me to say that things have not changed for blacks. Working class blacks and blacks in Hollywood are still being discriminated against. We still have a long way to go.
Excuse me? Things have not changed for blacks? Okay, let me break it down for you sweetheart, since you seem to really be that damn dense. Your daughter lost to Prince. Last I heard Prince wasn't white. The other award she lost, she lost to Meryl Streep. Probably the best and most respected actress living today. Meanwhile Beyonce can barely say she got rave reviews.
Now let's think about the other winners Monday night. That is, in addition to the fact that, except your daughter, every award Dreamgirls was nominated for won: Jennifer Hudson won. Black. Eddie Murphy won. Black. Forest Whitaker won. Black. America Ferrera won. Spanish. The director of Babel won. Spanish.
Yet the Globes are racist? You need to just get gone. You, your wife, and your overrated, non-acting daughter need to get the hell out of here with that mess.
