Seems like everyone is going in on our girl Beyonce…first The Game called her a NBA groupie and now Nia Long is questioning her acting chops. The actress recently told U.K.’s Pride magazine, “If you’re a singer not an actress, you should sing. If you’re a rapper, you should rap.”
In this month’s cover story, the ‘Are We There Yet?’ star was also asked what she thought about Beyonce Knowles’ performance in ‘Obsessed.’
“I didn’t see ‘Obsessed,’ so I can’t comment, but it’s just not about how talented you are anymore. It’s about, ‘How much box-office revenue will this person generate?’ When you see certain people – we won’t name names – they just don’t have the skill, and no one in their team has said, ‘You need acting classes,'” Long replied.
Tell ’em how you really feel Nia!!!
And not to be left out, ex- Destiny Child member Michelle Williams recently told the BBC the following:
“And what I hate people to do is, they don’t think because I’m not visible over here with the number ones, they think I’m not doing anything or they think I’m not as successful. But I’m in the freaking West End! I’m the first African-American woman to play his role in the West End! But it’s okay. The other day I was walking around London, nobody made a fuss – I like that. I wanna be respected for what I do but I don’t wanna be bombarded and can’t go anywhere. So that’s what I have over Beyonce. I can go anywhere I want.”
