Just when you thought it was safe to turn on your TV. Now comes word that laundromat singer Beyonce, who can’t act her way out of a paper bag, has been offered the role of Glinda the Good Witch in NBC’s live musical ‘The Wiz’.
‘The Wiz’ is an all-black (and mixed race) version of the 1939 all-white classic The Wizard of Oz, starring Judy Garland.
R&B Diva Mary J. Blige is cast as the Wicked Witch of the West and Queen Latifah, who is openly lesbian, will play the Wizard, a role traditionally played by a man.
Soul legend Diana Ross (who can’t act either) played Dorothy in the 1978 feature film, which also starred the late Michael Jackson as the scarecrow.
I plan to watch this just to see Beyonce stumble over her lines and fall flat on her face.
Rumor has it that Beyonce and Jay Z moved out west so Beyonce can realize her dreams of being a movie star. Lol.
