Beyonce vs. the Jacksons: It’s On!
It’s time for Celebrity Family Feud!
Singer and Cadillac Records actress Beyonce Knowles took her interview in the latest issue of Elle as an opportunity to talk some trash about the Jackson family, sparking a touch of class warfare in the process.
“I grew up upper-class. Private school. My dad had a Jaguar,” the 27-year-old diva tells the magazine. “We’re African-American and we work together as a family, so people assume we’re like the Jacksons. But I didn’t have parents using me to get out of a bad situation.”
Ouch, that smarts! “Neener, neener, neener, my daddy drives a Jaguar!”
Seriously, of all the things she could have called the Jacksons out about, Beyonce is attacking them for using their talents to transcend their meager origins?
Maybe Mrs. Jay-Z was still smarting from the dis that Brandy laid down on her earlier this month, and was trying to improve her mood by hurling a little mud herself. But it’s not particularly classy to kick a family when they’re down.
Oh well; if there’s any fallout from the fierce interview, Beyonce can always blame it on her alter-ego.
