Some Mid-Morning Tranny

- By Bossip Staff

Lacefront got it in this weekend during her tour’s first stop in NYC at Madison Square Garden. Pop the top for a review of the show, more pics and one shot where she looks like she’s packing more than Hov.

Right from the opening number, “Crazy in Love,” Beyoncé showed off pipes of steely power. As the song’s signature horn riff pumped away, she soared over the melody with athletic ease. The way Beyoncé used her body intensified the sense of triumph. With her hair teased into Medusa-like tresses, a pelvis in perpetual churn and legs long enough to make Tina Turner proud, Beyoncé’s presence punctuated her singing like an exclamation point.

The show moved smoothly through its two-hour expanse. The costumes didn’t disappoint, including one getup that looked like Barbarella on a safari and another that depicted Beyoncé as an unlikely innocent in white.

The latter outfit appeared during the show’s most surprising stretch, a run of ballads early on that allowed Beyoncé to express something she rarely does: hurt.

Partly because her rise to fame paralleled that of hip hop, much of Beyoncé’s music has prized force over softer emotions. To this day, self-empowerment anthems almost entirely define her work.

Yet in songs like “Broken-Hearted Girl” and “Smash Into You,” Beyoncé showed us something more internal and deep.

In her pop rewrite of “Ave Maria,” Beyoncé hit notes with a new delicacy, then moved seamlessly into the final operatic crescendo. Such material, taken from the new album, helped provide a broader context for the star. It’s by far her most melodically sure, and musically diverse, work.

Beyoncé didn’t nail every reach. Her run at “At Last” still lacks the terrific sense of relief Etta James manages effortlessly.

But her take on “Listen” from “Dreamgirls” drew on both sides of her character, the pained and the potent. Mining those two emotions made this Beyoncé’s greatest live moment.

    I don’t know about your comment. Thats a little far fetched. But for her generation I suppose they will look at her as an icon. Today’s music just does not have the longevity like the artist you compared her too. I don’t know 10 years from now if we will be bumpin her music like we still doing with 80’s and 90’s hip hop and RnB. I mean bey’s hits the very few I liked realistically were mostly remixes too. I am still listening to Madonna’s Lucky Star, or Doug E Fresh and Biz Markie..will I download bootylicious..ummm don’t think so.

    You know what I like to see… I want to MTV to bring back MTV Unplugged…and I want her to do a set like her hubby Jay Z did or the countless others who were not afraid to show their talent…then maybe I will give her some serious points.

  • Plastic007

    i disagree with ur comment b will def be around 10 years from now .. and when im n my 30’s we will know who she is ,, she will b like a diana ross but with a PPatti Labelle spin this chick will b performong till she wants to stop selling ot concerts lik tina turner in her 70’s …

  • sepia830

    @dayg715

    Yes, they create a live performance SOUNDING track with new ad-libs that arent on the original version. With a couple of “How are y’all Doing?” live vocals.

    Everybody is hip to their tricks. Every singer that dances as much as she does it. They are lip sync’ers they’re not built like James Brown, Tina Turner and the rest of them that did it LIVE day in and day out.

    These weak a$$ singers WILL LOSE THEIR VOICE! They are not built for it!!!

  • B'More

    this girl may be good (compared to today’s artists, that’s not saying much), but if her popularity and sales are slipping already after such a short time, she’ll be lucky if she’s still around 5 years from now.

  • dayg715

    @Back On My Swag

    if that’s the case (which, by the way is debatable), she needs to stop acting like she’s singing every single song live from start to finish. everyone is indeed hip to their tricks, but they’re hip to beyonce’s tricks too.

  • dayg715

    but my point isn’t about her lip syncing. my point was that it’s ridiculous to put her on the same level as the legends, when clearly she isn’t even close to half of their level.
