After I posted the article "Why is Britney Spears criticized more than Beyonce for similar onstage behavior?", I have seen many different opinions on the question. A lot of people do feel that Britney Spears is criticized more than Beyonce Knowles and here are some of the reasons that users expressed, here on the Beyonce Examiner, the Breathe Heavy Forum and around the web.
A few online readers have said that they feel that Beyonce gets less flack because people feel that they will be labeled as racist if they say anything bad about Beyonce.
“We'll Beyonce is black and they don't want to come across as racist and Britney is the easiest target there is.”
Fame and Popularity
Another suggestion is that Beyonce is just not as famous as Britney Spears, so the things that she does slips through the cracks, while Ms. Spears’ every move is scrutinized.
Attack Beyonce and you'll get a hundred replies
Attack Britney and you'll get a MILLION replies..."
Keep Lives Separated
They can do anything onstage, no matter how R-rated, as long as they try to remain sweet and classy in their everyday lives.
At least that is the opinion of some readers. They say that because Beyonce is not in the tabloids behaving badly, she may get away with things that Britney cannot, when it comes to performances and music videos.
One popular opinion is that Beyonce’s father, like the father of Jessica Simpson, may have complete control over her career, and blocks, pays or tries to prevent bad news that could hurt Beyonce’s career.
