Beyonce

"[DJ Alan Freed's son] Lance Freed said he believed his father's exhibit is being downsized and moved to another area of the [Rock and Roll Hall of Fame] museum, but [Executive Director Greg] Harris said it is not being changed beyond removal of the gold urn. Harris suggested that Freed's son might feel better about the move after he visits the museum Monday morning...

...Harris defended the ouster of Freed's ashes coming at the same time that Beyonce's leotards are welcomed into the hall of fame. "Rock and roll isn't just about yesterday," he said. "It continues to evolve, and we continue to embrace it and refine our operations."" [CNN]

Read the Hall of Fame's official statement in a blog post they put up today.

WTF does Beyonce have to do with R&R? Wish I could take a big shit on her face.

This isnt that big of a deal. Alan Freed was a crook anyway. He didnt actually MAKE the music, folks.

Neither does Beyonce.

If thats the argument you want to get into, then Frank Sinatra and Michael Jackson never wrote their own music either. That doesnt diminish their greatness.

Michael Jackson wrote and just as importantly arranged a lot of his music across his career (yes, not all but enough). So there's that.

And Francis Albert was a rock star, and movie star.
