So, the Beastie Boys have a new album coming out and, as ever, they are on the pursuit of a wacky and unusual name for it. Some time ago, someone found out that the Boys were thinking of calling the album “Thick Like Beyoncé’s Leg” but they have announced that they have decided against it, in order to avoid offending her.
Drummer, Mike Diamond, is quoted as saying (on the British radio station X-FM) “I think its gonna be called “The Mix-Up” instead… It’s a little too sensible almost, huh? I was a big fan of the title Thick Like Beyonce’s Leg but that didn’t make the final cut for some reason. Beyonce’s very talented and beautiful and she’s probably stronger than we are…we didn’t want to have any problems with her.”
I cracked up when I read this. It’s so crazy that even I couldn’t make it up, but it’s true!
