This Week In Beyonce: Who Dares Cover the Queen?

Not strictly a cover, just one of those things we never get tired of posting...

As if Queen B weren't (Sasha) fierce enough on her own, it seems her majesty's minions - let's face it, we're all her royal peons; there isn't anyone left on Earth who hasn't heard one of her songs, or doesn't tap their foot a bit when "Single Ladies" comes on - adore their queen so much that they dare to be like her. In this case, Rocks Off is speaking of the numerous individuals who dare to cover - or remix, or mash up - one of her songs. Some come off like bad karaoke, but minus the anger that comes from knowing you paid a two-drink minimum for this crap. Others are admirable, introducing an artist some might be put off by to a different demographic. Together, they help push the world's most famous Houstonian to whatever status is beyond "superstar."
