I signed up for a free Disney+ trial exclusively so I could watch Baby Yoda. But that lapsed, and as far as I know, Baby Yoda is not featured in Beyoncé’s Black is King so I haven’t had the chance to watch it yet. As previously reported, BIK features songs from Beyoncé’s 2019 album The Lion King: The Gift and as such, much like WuTang, BIK is for the children. And what did the children get for pre-Christmas (that’s something wealthy children get with their Disney+ Unlimited subscription)? According to Billboard they got “an army of talented dancers, actors and famous guest stars,” and “a crystal-clear illumination of the importance of Black pride and excellence.” I’m sure they’ll appreciate the context when they get older. Right now they’re probably just looking for Baby Yoda to pop out from behind every Baobab tree.
Elton John did an interview with British GQ to promote his new autobiography Me, and he used the time to tell everyone that he, who of course wrote the songs for the original The Lion King, believes that the music was a big part of the first one and the live-action mess failed to recapture that. Elton believes it had as much charisma as his arch enemy Madonna has an actress.
And I’m sure Beyonce still doesn’t care.
The live-action The Lion King is making tons of money, and everybody involved in Beyonce’s Lion King-themed album The Gift was probably hoping that’d make a ton of money too. But unfortunately this gift needs to be returned immediately because nobody’s buying it (in the UK anyway). And aside from that, people are accusing her once again stealing concepts that weren’t hers and trying to pass them off as Beyonce originals.
Open Post: Hosted By John Oliver Confirming Beyonce Was Photoshopped Into “The Lion King” Cast Photo
Although the reviews haven’t been great, the live-action The Lion King is a certified hit. More than likely because Beyonce‘s loyal stable of unstable crazies, the BeyHive, bought all the tickets and all the merchandise so far. And one of its newest members, John Oliver, is revealing the totally not-shocking truth about a cast photo from the film featuring Beyonce front and center. Apparently, after the photo was taken Beyonce was added in afterward.
And in a strange turn of events, it’s not from horny, confused people accidentally buying tickets to what they thought was The Loin King.
In addition to the Beyhive, Beyoncé’s accountant, and the future defrosted head of Walt Disney, we can add furries to the very short list of people who are benefiting from the release of the not-so-live-action remake of The Lion King. Vice reports that the inevitable porn parody, dubbed The Loin King, has already cum.
