man there's a lot of other headliners I'd rather see on next year's bill, but I will say that if she weer given one of the slots I'd welcome it with open arms. She nailed it at Glastonbury last night gang, a performer in every sense of the word. I don't think you'll ever see Beyonce or Lady Gaga at Bonnaroo, but if in fact they are considering either I sure hope they'd decide on the former.
Then why did you start this thread? Starting a "Beyonce maybe if you can't find anything better for 2012" campaign?
because there's folks here who think Roo organizers might go in that direction by booking Lady Gaga. I wouldn't want that, but if in fact they're going in that direction I wouldn't be upset with Beyonce. That's all.
I welcome either Beyonce or Lady Gaga, having a powerful talented female headlining performer on the farm would be pretty awesome. They both are known for putting on a huge spectacle, and both can sing their donkeys off. They are two women who know how hard it is to be successful, so they WORK for that audience, and they give you your monies worth every show.
There's people who think pop music has no place on the farm, and they're completely welcome to that opinion. Lots of people think rap/hip hop has no place on the farm, and Jay Z proved those people wrong in '10. I think one of these ladies could do the same next year.
Now, I want to say that just like every rap artist would not be worthy of a spot on a farm, not every pop act deserves a spot either. I would be just as mad as anyone else if Taylor Swift or Katy Perry were booked. To me there's a big difference between those acts and Gaga/Beyonce, namely, talent.
