  • Here in the music video, Beyonce Knowles is emulating Sharon Stone's character in the scene, but it is one of the most lame emulations I have ever seen - Beyonce is simply way too busy ranting like an angry chicken head instead of taking full advantage of the teasing 'crossing legs' technique that was utilized so well by Sharon Stone in the actual film

      Artist: Beyonce Video: “Ring The Alarm” Album: B-Day Label: Columbia Director: Sophie Muller

      Uh-oh, somebody ticked Beyonce off. “Ring The Alarm” is the second single and music video from Beyonce’s second album titled “B-Day”, following the previous debut single “Deja Vu”. “Ring The Alarm” depicts a threatened Beyonce Knowles who is upset about her man cheating on her (I guess she either suspected or caught Jay-Z with another chick, way too obvious, isn’t it?).

        such a magnificent opportunity.

        Other dominant scenes of the music video feature Beyonce on a table in an empty interrogation room with flashing red lights and a blaring siren, another features her fighting with a couple of armed guards in a hallway, and another has Beyonce singing and screaming in a corner of a room. Sorry but I have to ask, why not re-title the song “Girlfight”? Overall, this is perhaps the most unappealing and unattractive depiction of Beyonce period.
