Beyonce's Metallic Glove: Love it or Hate it? Vote Now!

Wearing one glove may be a trend that Michael Jackson launched back in the ’80s, but it looks like Beyonce is putting her own twist on the look. Since launching her “Single Ladies” video last month, the R&B star has been wearing the custom-made titanium Lorraine Schwartz mechanical glove on- and off-stage as her alter ego “Sasha Fierce.” Though the glove is a “fierce” on-stage prop, we aren’t sure it translates into red carpet fabulous. USA Today readers agree. More than 700 weighed in and only 4% coined it a “fun new trend”. Now we want to know what readers think. Do you like Beyonce’s glove or do you wish she would ditch it? Vote now!

If she would just be herself she wouldn’t have to be two people. this whole split personality thing seems to be a “smart” marketing idea though.I mean come on lets give her a break though lol..she’s still very talented. even if she isn’t very original. after all originality has to come from some origin! smart right? ok i’ll stop. just live yourlife people. happy holidays to all.

The glove is ridiculous. Just another attempt at attention, maybe if it didn’t look so robotic she could possibly pull it off. Maybe.

And Kelli: Grow up. There is no point in threatening people that disagree with your opinions. It only makes YOU look stupid.

That is true….so much HATE! I just don’t understand ….everything she does is stupid..she is overrated..and blah blah blah. If you don’t like her…don’t read about her! Geesh…
T.I gave us a CD last year or before with an alter ego….Nelly presented us with a CD a few years ago…that had two sides to him..and so forth. What is the big deal?

My opinion is that I like a person who is real, why change your name? It’s like being false to me. The glove thing is old, not new.

Who is this Kelli person and why is she acting like that. allows us to post comments and if someone’s thoughts on a particular subject are not alligned with yours, you should respect the difference in their opinion. The whole subject is sooo not that serious. While I do find that Beyonce is a talented individual, she is very overrated. I’m sure she’s probably a nice person or whatever, but I don’t see the fascination with her. I’m sure the whole “Sasha Fierce” thing is entertaining to her fans, but I don’t get it. She’s an entertainer, that’s what they do, come up with things to try to keep us entertained.

I don’t think people hate Beyonce, I just think it’s too much of a good thing. You never have time to miss Beyonce; I’m not exactly sure who is at fault for that – the papparazzi or Beyonce’s Management, but I wouldn’t mind having a break from Beyonce for a year or two.

Enough of this Hasbeen!!

Honestly I think the glove is just something different that she’s trying out. I have heard nothing that says she’s trying to make it into this new fashion statement, so everyone should go buy their own metallic glove now! She did say that she tried to do something different with this album, and obviously the glove is part of that! But wow, I cant believe so many people hate her…I mean, you’re entitled to your opinion but so much hate really isn’t necessary…if anything it kinda makes you look like you’re a bit jealous of her…

Oh, and fyi…she’s not changing her name to Sasha Fierce, it’s an alter-ego that describes the person she ‘becomes’ when she’s performing on stage, and it makes perfect sense to me because the way she is on stage performing is THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE of the way she is in interviews and things like that…so relax people…she’s not trying to change her name or get more attention or anything else like that. Give her a break, the woman is good at what she does :oD
