After spending a life time loathing beyonce (A very poor man's Whitney was my take), she turned me round with just one album. 4 kills. And I bet her set at Glastonbury wasn't terrible, I have seen her live a couple of times and always thought she looks the part. Faint praise, eh? I don't deny it…
And this somewhat overcitable take on KOL's over-humidified "Sex On Fire" might be a signal as to why. I never much liked the original,; the metaphor is kinda yucky. Is he trying to say your pussy's on fire, I don't much like the image. Fire is the absolute wrong element for cunt, water is the right one. Among other things, fire is too hot, water, though heated, isn't gonna burn your cock off.
And does Beyonce mean Jigga's cock is on fire. Eeewwwww, what a dreadful image.
So now that I've complete put you off you elevensies…
