Beyonce to sing Bond Theme? No, No, No

Wassup, Y'all!

Anyone who is a James Bond aficionado like ol Ty will know that when it comes to singin' Bond movie theme songs, Shirley Bassey is the gold standard. When I heard that the producers of the newest Bond flick, Quantum of Solace, were considering having UK soul singer, Amy Winehouse do the honors this go 'round I was like - 'Man, that's a perfect fit! Similar singing styles, both UK based shorties and both have deep, soulful voices'.

I know, I know. Amy is five alarm train wreck at the moment. True - but ol girl can sang and hopefully sooner or later, something is going to snap her out of her death spiral - what better than a high profile Bond theme gig? Unfortunately, her train wreck continues and that situation has moved her off the table as an option and now rumors are swirlin' that the gig might go to Mrs. Jigga Man! Let me just be the first to go on record with a definitive, 'Oh HELL NO!'

Y'all have heard me weigh in more than once on Beyonce. The only thing more annoyin' than ol girl's weave is her singing voice. Now ol Ty's not saying that 'Yonce can't sing, he's just sayin' that her voice is not in the Bond theme realm. Diet Coke, Juicy Fruit Gum, Mentos, McDonald's - all 'Yonce friendly venues, but J-Bee-zee? Oh HELL NO! How's a brother go about short circuiting' this madness before it goes too far? Aren't there any other Jennifer Hudson roles she can try out for?
