So it looks like Destiny's Child will go their seperate ways after the end of their upcoming North American tour. This should surprise no one - they were all but broken up for years whilst Ms. Beyonce Knowles rocked her way through the zeitgeist, and her current efforts to assimilate back into the girl group seem perfunctory at best. But is this the best timing for this? What was supposed to be her summer film, The Pink Panther, is apparently so atrocious that Sony's not going to release it until February, and Bill Condon's Dreamgirls probably won't be ready for at least a year. There's no doubt in my mind that Beyonce has it in her to be one of the great crossover stars, but she needs to get a prestige project into the marketplace soon. And may she never again sing in French at the Oscars.
