I like Beyonce as a pop star, but I agree with you. I find Beyonce's constant talk of 'empowerment' and other celebs OTT 'Beyonce's an inspiration' praise a bit odd. Yes, she's a good pop star. And a pop star who clearly throws everything into it and works hard at everything she does. I can totally see why she's an inspiration to wannabe popstars... but an inspiration to women in general? I'm not sure how she is tbh.
This. She is possibly the vainest celebrity out there too, which is quite some feat these days.
