Alright guys I usually don’t post about celebs but you know I had to chime in on this recent news about a staged Destiny’s Child musical. In a recent interview with Houston’s FOX 26 news, Matthew Knowles (Beyonce’s father) states that he plans to open up a staged musical centering around the iconic female group, Destiny’s Child with Idris Elba playing Matthew Knowles. I’ll let you watch the video below for yourself but I was expecting something like this to go to the screen first, what about you? I mean, isn’t that what everybody else is doing? Making a quick buck off of these quickly manufactured biopics?
The only ones that have substance so far to me are “New Edition” & “Crazy Sexy Cool.” All the other recent ones are garbage. Sorry Whitney, sorry Aaliyah. What do you think? A staged musical? He states it will debut overseas first then work its way over to the U.S. Although “Dreamgirls” did start off as a staged play and 25 years later became a big hit with Beyoncé & Jennifer Hudson. Maybe Matthew is trying to mimic the “Dreamgirls” success. Let me know what you think.
