RIP, Single Ladies

I am now officially declaring the Single Ladies fad dead and deceased because of the super skeevy video I’ve posted below of some 7-year-old dancers slutting it up to our favorite Beyonce song. Single Ladies has had a great life, with a heelarious spoof by Justin Timberlake and a shout out from President Obama when he demonstrated his own hand-flipping ability, but now it’s time to bid it farewell (and I do so with great sadness) because it’s just gone too far.

BTW, the Modern Love Machine and I have finally gotten around to digesting the first season of Glee (and it is delightful), and I finally saw the episode that involved a whole lotta Single Ladies, and it was spectacular. I mean, it blended my love of Beyonce and football. What more can I ask for?

And now, prepare to feel icky:

I’m not accepting nominations for the next Single Ladies fad. Until then, here’s Beyonce’s latest. It ain’t bad (and it’s sure a hell of a lot better than that Telephone song with Gaga, which I really wanted to like.)

    I couldn't watch more than a few seconds. It just felt wrong. There's a fine line in there somewhere.
