Apparently, Beyonce helped co-write the song “Listen” featured in the motion-picture Dreamgirls. Sadly, the academy only allows three names for each song, and they snubbed Big B. Maybe they read my blog and realized what a snotty, stuck-up, annoying bitch Beyonce really is? Humm. One can only hope.
“Officially, she’s listed as one of the song’s four writers, but the motion-picture academy only permits three names – max – as a credit…The Oscars’ songwriting branch has decided to qualify only Henry Krieger, Anne Preven and Scott Cutler for writing “Listen.” No explanation is given for why Beyonce is excluded over the others. Is this just one of those cases of where the singer insisted upon having her name added to credits as part of her performance deal? In media interviews, she’s often said that she was truly involved in its songwriting. Apparently, not to the extent as her three collaborators, according to the Oscars.”
