For your excellent arguments on Talk:Beyoncé, which successfully lead to the Beyoncé Knowles article being moved to the mononym after all the other attempts to do so failed. Well done, JennKR, well done indeed. :) Acalamari 23:02, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Peer Review[edit]

On behalf of those who have significantly contributed to the Katy Perry article, just wanted to give a big thank you again for your peer review input! Admittedly, I felt rather disappointed that it wasn't nominated for GA after all the work put into it from the review. Regarding early life section, I haven't found anything on her education prior to high school. In fact, I don't think it's ever even been known to the public. When the points you mentioned have been addressed, though, could you perhaps be the one to nominate it for GA? XXSNUGGUMSXX (talk) 16:17, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Hi, JennKR. This probably couldn't be incorporated into the Beyoncé article, but I wanted to share this fun fact with you anyway, in case you haven't seen it. There is a new expression, "to pull a Beyoncé" ;) LA TimesMayast (talk) 20:38, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

I'm not sure what to do with the categories. The main problem seems to be that the WikiProject was renamed without any prior consensus – I'm not an expert on all the Wiki policies and guidelines, so I'm not sure if we can reach a consensus for something that already happened? Would be nice to have a time machine ;)
Should we try to notify WikiProject members and ask them to express their opinion to reach consensus? Or just assume that all the interested project members have already done that (that would be just you and me)? — Mayast (talk) 12:30, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
Hi, I have another example of "pulling a Beyoncé", this time from MTV ;) Mayast (talk) 20:58, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for replying :) It's super crazy time for me too (tomorrow I'm flying to London and back, and on Friday to Paris), and I probably won't have any access to my laptop for the next two weeks, so if you have any free time, please feel free to add that info to the article ;) If not, I'll do it when I get back :) Cheers! — Mayast (talk) 11:40, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

4[edit]

OMG, Jenny you made my day. Congratulations on 4 becoming a Featured Article. You did an amazing job. I really mean that! And also you did a great job with Beyoncé (the album article). I can't wait to see it becoming an FA one day. My love is love (talk) 14:31, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

FA congratulations[edit]

Just a quick note to congratulate you on the promotion of 4 (Beyoncé album) to FA status recently. If you would like to see this (or any other FA) appear as "Today's featured article" soon, please nominate it at the requests page; if you'd like to see an FA on a particular date in the next year or so, please add it to the "pending" list. In the absence of a request, the article may end up being picked at any time (although with 1,326 articles in Category:Featured articles that have not appeared on the main page at present, there's no telling how long – or short! – the wait might be). If you'd got any TFA-related questions or problems, please let me know. BencherliteTalk 10:20, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

Congratulations![edit]

I just saw 4 passed its FAC! Congratulations! I hope we can make Beyoncé's self-titled an FA one day as well. I see that you put a lot of work in 4 and you know better, so I wanted to ask you, could you please lightly review Trouble (Natalia Kills album): I mean, if you could identify some errors and correct structure errors, etc. If you have time and feel like it, please do it on the talk page of the article, if you can't it's OK.

Beyonce Influences[edit]

Concerning your explanation, even though provided by at least MTV sources as you said by liking = in this context it is the same as influence. Shakira's influence in Beyonce videos and choreography is extremely obvious, in the dancing, videos. This fact just cannot be hided.

Quick Question[edit]

Jenn,

Thanks for the rearrangements/simplification you just made on Katy Perry. Before I nominate for GA, I thought I'd ask this: as the peer reviewer, is there anything last things you particularly recommend changing (aside from adding more references to "Achievements" or checking for dead references, which I'm in the middle of doing)? Having gone through this article intricately for the past several months, I feel it is very close to getting back up to GA after being delisted in October 2012. I've probably worked on that article more than any other during my time on Wikipedia. On a side note, I'd be happy to return the favor for you on Beyoncé-related articles.

Flawless (Beyoncé song)[edit]

Hi, JennKR. I'm thinking about nominating Flawless (Beyoncé song) for GA. However, it would be my very first nomination and I feel like a rookie. Could you have a quick look at it, and maybe say whether you think the article is ready for GAN? Or perhaps give me some tips? Thanks, Mayast (talk) 21:41, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

  • Sorry for the comment, but I just took a look at the article and I think it doesn't have a lot of stuff to fix. I'd gladly take the review; however I doubt that the Foreign Policy review is deserving of a full paragraph. — prism 22:29, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
    • Actually I think that you should wait. First, I'm pretty convinced that the song will be released as a single from the album. Second, there are tons of reviews (with many of them discussing the song in depth) which are not included in the article. I think that you should use them to further expand the article. My love is love (talk) 00:06, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks a lot for your opinions :) I'll try to improve the critical reception section by adding more reviews and trimming down FP‍ '​s review. Mayast (talk) 10:20, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Madonna article[edit]

I also thought the Madonna article was written like a fanpage, so I trimmed the most egregious stuff from the lead. Although frankly the whole article needs judicious cutting. Catherinejarvis (talk) 22:39, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for trimming some of the poorly sourced fancruft in the article. To use a Gigwise source to suggest that Madonna is more influential than Jesus was a ridiculous assertion. To suggest that this was "a new scientific study" was absurd. Regards, Kind Tennis Fan (talk) 08:33, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Apologies for not getting back to you sooner. You sent me a note on my talk page about a month ago. recently, however, I did a some digging and discovered that an editor, named IndianBio, hovers around the Madonna page reverting many of the edits other people make. Then I did a little more digging and discovered this IndianBio editor changes pages about Madonna and Lady Gaga every day. Literally. Which explains why my edit was reverted soon enough.Catherinejarvis (talk) 00:36, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of Petergriffin9901 -- Petergriffin9901 (talk) 22:22, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hi Jenn! Sorry for bothering you, but I have a question. As you (may) know, I'm prepping up Trouble for its late July/early August FAC and I'm currently restructuring it. In the last month I revamped Perfectionist (another album of Natalia Kills) and included a subsection about its visual aspects, where I summarized each of the music videos and a promotional web series she made for the era as well. Mainly because the visuals were a great part of the album's promotion, and I thought they couldn't be overlooked. I was considering adding a section of Visuals and artwork (similarly to Beyoncé) where I would develop a bit on how each video was made (respecting summary style guidelines, of course) and address their synopsis. Also, a paragraph about the cover art of the album. I think the section would tie in perfectly with the rest of the article as they are mostly inspired by Kills' early life, which is also discussed in the album's lyrics. Since I respect your opinion, could you give your two cents on adding the section? pedro | talk 18:07, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry again, but I really need to know whether I should include this section or not. I'm in the final stages of prepping the article for FAC. pedro | talk 00:19, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
@Prism: Did I not reply to this? I definitely typed a reply, give me a sec to see if I have posted it elsewhere, otherwise I'll ping you here and offer my thoughts. Cheers, —JennKR | 00:22, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
@Prism: Firstly, apologies, because I'm certain I typed a reply to this, so I must've not submitted it and have exited the tab thinking I had. I'm assuming this proposition is for Trouble (not Perfectionist) as that is going to FAC soon? If so, I think that's absolutely fine, in fact I think it would more than benefit the article. Remember criteria 1(b) for featured status is comprehensiveness—if the material is available to create such a section, and it meets all the other criteria, then it certainly should be included. Best of luck and message me if you need any assistance! —JennKR | 00:33, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! pedro | talk 00:42, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Peter Gabriel[edit]

Thank you for your additions to the So page, but please don't just destroy other people's additions without some kind of discussion as I like to think I put quite a lot of effort into those edits on this page. Rodericksilly (talk) 15:43, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

I also appreciate your contributions to the article. They are interesting and informative. My only concern was the huge removal of information from the page, which I have never done to any article, and if I did I would fully expect it to be immediately reverted. Rodericksilly (talk) 16:28, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Surely it's OK to use quotes from print media article on Wiki? I've seen plenty on many articles, some on much more serious topics than albums. The quotes were a bit long, I'll grant you that, but they are reviews from professional critics in noted publications. Rodericksilly (talk) 16:48, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Now I have seen your reasoning I can better understand it, so thanks for that. I thought you were a vandal at first. That's what I meant by discussion, I thought that is what the Talk page for the article was for, so you could raise your concerns about the content and its references? Also, I was a bit mystified by your removal of the pop-rock genre, because surely EVERYONE acknowledges, Gabriel himself, that this was the album that truly crossed over into the pop rock mainstream and brought him to a different audience? Rodericksilly (talk) 17:03, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
The AllMusic article on So mentions "pop" several times in addition to his (to quote) "moody art rock", so I would think that was good enough for a source. Rodericksilly (talk) 17:22, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
So using "pop" as a genre would be OK? Rodericksilly (talk) 18:08, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
The magazines are ones I bought and own, as is the 1001 Albums book. I thought the genre pop rock, or at least pop, was OK, since the lede states "Many of its songs reflect a more conventional pop-writing style and became radio hits", and the other genres, art rock and worldbeat, haven't required references.

Adele[edit]

Note that there was a reference for "British"; RyanTQuinn removed it and changed it to "English", I restored it, he removed it again and left it at "British", and now it's back at English, unsourced. "British" was sourced with a direct quote from the subject yet it has been removed. Is that what you meant to do? Note that an older discussion on the talk page was in favour of "British" and the subject is of mixed British heritage. Regards, Bretonbanquet (talk) 23:42, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

The fact she has Welsh heritage has no bearing on her nationality, which you could describe as either British or English. The fact is, it's been English for so long I'm wondering why this is only being questioned now. Issues around nationality are contentious and that's why, as it appeared there was edit-warring, that it would be much better to take the issue to the talk page. However, if you think Adele has shown preference to be referred to as British or English, then I believe that preference should be included. Best, —JennKR | 20:29, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
Well, her citizenship nationality is British, no question about that, as there is no such thing as English citizenship. As for any finer description beyond that, heritage certainly might have a bearing on it, as Englishness/Welshness/Scottishness basically depends entirely on heritage. The cover-all "British" cannot be wrong because that's what all our passports say we are, whereas English/Welsh or whatever can sometimes be incorrectly assigned. Issues around nationality are indeed contentious, which is why I don't like to see nationalities or particularly sub-nationalities used without anything to substantiate them, however long they've been in the article. The reference that had been inserted contained a quote from Adele saying, "I'm proud to be British", which seems like a pretty solid preference. Are you happy to have that reinstated? Cheers, Bretonbanquet (talk) 02:16, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
No problem! Yes, I agree that it's fine if someone says they're English, consider themselves English or sentiment to that effect, then the lead should undoubtedly say English. I think that any personal quote or statement regarding nationality should be cited and override anything else. But I do think that (just my opinion), where there is any doubt and no long-standing wording, the default should be British. British is also a nationality, mine for example. It guarantees accuracy as all English, Welsh and Scottish people are also, by law, British. But in a sense then, many British people have two nationalities, which is a bit inconvenient for us! JK Rowling is a good example of how seriously many people take this subject and they've reached a proper consensus there, but generally, Wikipedia is very poor at providing guidance for it. There are many editors who like to change nationalities around with nothing to substantiate them, and there's no effective policing of that. But anyway regarding Adele, I did wonder if you thought there was a standard edit war, which is why I came here to check rather than just revert again. Someone brought it up again today on the talk page, and I've responded with a proposal along the lines of what you've said, so hopefully people will have their say there.

Your Recent Edits to Beyoncé (album)[edit]

Hey, I just wanted to say that you should try to avoid charged language, even if it's seemingly safe, such as "surprising".

@Crossark:: Hey, two things, firstly, my edit never added the content "surprising", if you look at the diff closely, I moved two paragraphs around (so the section flows better) and therefore the language in question alredy existed. Secondly, "surprising" in the article is used in the sense that that the release was unexpected; this is uncontroversial as it isn't making claims about the album's extent of success, it is meant literally.

Hi[edit]

Hi Jen. I hope you are doing fine. How did you feel about the self-tilted not winning AOTY? Were you disappointed? Jivesh1205 (Talk) 15:48, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi @Jivesh boodhun:! I'm great thank-you, I hope you're doing well? As for your question as to whether I was disappointed, it's yes and no (and I have a long answer!). It's no because I did not share the same enthusiasm as Beyoncé's fans that she was "on lock" to win it. If you look at NARAS' voting history, particularly for Album of the Year, I think it's clear that succesful "urban" albums are shunned in favour of less succesful pop/rock records. Take Frank Ocean's Channel Orange losing to Mumford & Sons' Babel, or them not even nominating Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. This, coupled with the fact that Beyoncé is easily her most daring work, both sonically and thematically, meant that I watched the Grammys suspecting that she would not win.
That said, the thought that Beyoncé would win AOTY popped into my head on the day of its release. I watched Daft Punk win for Random Access Memories just two months after Beyoncé dropped, and thought it was promising that the Grammys had chosen not to award a less succesful, more conservative record. It was only when it drew closer to the ceremony that I did some more research into past winners, predictions and generally how albums are voted for, that I realised that its chances were skewed. I found Kanye's reference to the VMA incident with Taylor Swift funny until I realised he was actually serious, and although I found the whole "Beck should respect Beyoncé's artistry" comment ludicruous, I do believe that NARAS made the wrong decision. Not that Beck's Morning Phase is not brilliant, because it is (I listened to it, along with all the other nominees before the ceremony). It's just that Beyoncé‍ '​s nuances show it, in my opinion, to be a much stronger album; of those nominated, there is little doubt in my mind that it will be (and is) the record with the most impact.
However, I suppose in some ways its fitting, because Beyoncé's intentions behind self-titled was to make the music she had always wanted to make. It was presented as a work that wasn't concerned with sales or promotion or accolades, but an attempt to make the best music she ever could. If her statement with Beyoncé, best expressed on "Haunted", is true—"Soul not for sale/ Probably won't make any money of this/ Oh well"—then losing AOTY is not hugely concerning. So yeah, I watched the Grammys last week apprehensively, hoping that she would win, but knowing that those chances were quite slim. Even then, the real shock was that Morning Phase won and not In the Lonely Hour. I'm still surprised she didn't win Best Urban Contemporary Album, but ultimately she did win three awards, so it cannot be regarded as a total snub. Anyway, I've dragged on a bit long here, but I have been thinking a lot about this, especially because I wish to take the Beyoncé article much further in the coming months, although only after I've rewritten some sections as I'm not totally happy with it at the moment. Best wishes, and again, I hope you're well! —JennKR | 21:36, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
