Billboard Honors Beyonce With “Artist of the Millennium” Award!!!
Well………….. I guess they had to give it to somebody…
The last 2 recipients of this award were icons Michael Jackson and Mariah Carey. Both of those artist have enormous, timeless, uncompromising bodies of work and achievements with DWARF anything Beyonce has ever done and likely will ever do..
Peep the official Billboard report:
Beyonce will be honored with Billboard Millennium Award at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards, it was announced today (May 9). The iconic performer and international star will receive the honor at the May 22 show, which will air on ABC at 8-11pm ET/PT from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The Billboard Millennium Award will recognize Beyoncé’s career achievements and influence in the music industry, from her role as the frontwoman of Destiny’s Child to her three-chart-topping solo albums, which have collectively earned her 16 Grammy awards and ASCAP’s Pop Songwriter of the Year award. Previously, Billboard named Beyoncé its Woman of the Year in October 2009, and Top Female Artist of the Decade in December 2009.
Beyoncé’s Billboard Milliennium Award will arrive just as the star puts the finishig touches on her fourth studio album, due out later this year. The album, whose debut single “Run the World (Girls)” premiered in April, will be her first since 2009’s “I Am…Sasha Fierce,” which sold 2.9 million copies, according to Nielsen Soundscan.
Like I said… They had to give it to somebody. I think Britney Spears is more deserving but upon greater thought I realized that Madonna deserves this award more then anyone else right now, aside from MJ and Mimi of course. She’s got a huge body work iconic work that spans decades and list of accomplishments and achievements that match Michael and Mariah’s… Why the f*** are they giving this to Beyonce???
The B fans love to call me a hater but lets just face it. She’s hasn’t been around a whole decade on her own. She hasn’t sold 15% of the albums of had a quarter the success as the 2 previous honorees… She just doesn’t deserve this award… #Sorry
