Beyonce has agreed to perform at the 2008 Grammy Awards – and is reportedly willing to cross picket lines to get to the stage if she has to.
The singer joins the Foo Fighters, who announced earlier this week they’d step over striking writers to perform at the ceremony on 10 February.
Writers Guild of America (WGA) union members insisted that the event – like the recently cancelled Golden Globes – was “unlikely” to receive a waiver that would halt any potential picket action.
However, organisers are adamant the show must go on as scheduled, despite the threat of protesters.
Justin Timberlake, 50 Cent and Jon Bon Jovi have vowed not to cross picket lines, reportedly pledging their allegiance to the WGA members, who have been on strike since November over new media royalties.
Ya, ya, ya, Beyonce gives good performances. But she’s just some superficial bitch. Not surprised she would cross the picket lines. Her and her money hungry Camel boyfriend will do anything for the paper and fame. That being said, I wonder what song she’s going to perform? I’m excited.
