According the a St. Louis newspaper there are equally disappointing points about Beyonce as there are things that we love... They have compiled a list of all the highs and lows of Lady B in an effort to prove that "Beyonce could use a break and so could her fans."

The Best:
  • Her exquisite performance of "Dangerously in Love" at the 2004 Grammy Awards culminated in a white dove landing perfectly in her open palm.
  • The irresistible "Irreplaceable" was a deserved female anthem, even though it was written by a man.
  • The "Mahogany"-inspired photo shoot sequence from "Dreamgirls" presented Beyoncé at her most dazzlingly glammed-out — if you don't count the covers of her "Dangerously in Love" and "B'Day" CDs.
  • The pipin' hot "Crazy in Love" single and its energetic video served as the perfect entry point for her "Dangerously in Love" CD.
  • Watching her dance in videos such as "Baby Boy," "Get Me Bodied" and "Déjà vu" can be mesmerizing, even if the latter prompted some fans — who failed to "get" her Josephine Baker-inspired dance moves — to start a petition for a reshoot.

The Worst:
  • She thought that whatever she was doing in "Dreamgirls" would land her an Oscar nomination and allowed an unknown "American Idol" reject to steal her thunder.
  • She bypassed proper channels in rerecording Des'ree's "Kissing You" as "Still in Love (Kissing You)," resulting in a lawsuit and the pulling of the deluxe edition of the "B'Day" CD and accompanying DVD off the shelves.
  • "Ring the Alarm," the second single from "B'Day," was a screeching mess.
  • The whole Destiny's Child fiasco, in which various members were swapped in and out of the group — and during its heyday, of all times.
  • Beyoncé's interviews mostly consist of little more than words like "amazing," and she's painfully unequipped when the questions aren't the usual softballs.
