Matthew Knowles has announced in a statement that, despite the WGA’s strike, Beyonce “as well as my other artists Solange and Trinitee 5:7″ will participate in this year’s Grammy Awards. Surprise, surprise. We know she’s a great singer and performer, but I just want Papa Knowles to let her take a break. Everyone needs a vacation, even Bey, and to me, the writer’s strike was the perfect opportunity. At this point, I’m inclined to believe that Beyonce is not a person, but rather a robotic machine that keeps going and going like the energizer bunny.
Now, the real news: the Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) has asked that artists and musicians who are members of the Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG) to boycott the 50th Annual Grammy Awards, a show that will go on, without the writers, who have been on strike for a number of weeks (like 12). This year, the event will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 10. Beyonce, as well as 50 Cent, T.I. and Alicia Keys, are all members of SAG. Still, she will cross the picket line, and is facing criticism for it.
