Ibrawlator: Beyonce — What’s Up With Her This Year? Vote & See Debate Highlights

Erika Brooks Adickman | July 3, 2013 5:48 pm

Today’s Ibrawlator Twitter debate over Beyonce‘s current state of affairs was as heated — and fun — as we expected (if not more so!). It seems that the BeyHive is just as divided over Queen B’s lack of album five news and official single releases in 2013 as our own Sam Lansky and Mike Wass are. After an hour of dissecting the Grown Woman‘s career, there was no clear winner on either side. If anything, the general concensus seemed that both parties ultimately wanted the same thing: more iconic Beyonce hits — they simply had a different vision as to how the diva should go about it.

If you missed out on our intense discussion of all things Bey, head below to see highlights from both camps and some of our favorite comments from this afternoon. Then vote below in our Beyonce poll to help us declare a winner.

Debate topic #1: Since ending her professional relationship with her father, is Beyonce managing herself effectively?

Should Beyonce have made “Grown Woman” or “SOTS” official single releases after they leaked/made them available to purchase? #Ibrawlator

Does Beyonce owe her fans more communication than she’s given them or does she not owe them anything?

Many artists push back LP releases or scrap entire Lp with no a backlash. Why is Bey singled out? 

It’s only been 2 years since Beyonce released 4 – why the panic for new music? 

And now with both sides evenly presented, it’s time for the moment of truth. Below and tell us how you feel about Album 5-Era Beyonce. Polls close at 11:59pm ET on Friday, July 5.
