My readers broke the scoop right here on SR.com that one of Beyonce’s two dancers in her “Single Ladies” video is a man.
Then other blogs stole our scoop and ran with it, but it’s all good because at least we know they’re on this blog 24/7.
One of my loyal readers, Linda, informs me that Bey told Power 105.1 DJs Ed Lover and Free that the male dancer in question is actually a female.
She also said she’s not mad at Kanye West for saying that Rihanna was the best thing to happen to her by motivating her to step her game up.
“It’s all from a good place,” said Bey referring to Kanye’s comments. Beyonce then went on to patronize Rihanna with superficial praise, saying, “she’s fantastic and she’s done an incredible job. I love all her records.”
Here’s what Bey said about the dancer controversy:
“That is so silly man, that is silly. Both of the girls are dancers, they’re ballet dancers, and their bodies are unbelievable, just pure muscle. So I mean I guess people were feeling like, her body is just so strong. But that is crazy!”
If the rumors are so crazy, why doesn’t the chick show her face and put the rumors to rest once and for all?

Thanks to loyal reader Joy Williams for sending these pics of the dancer in question. Judging from the pics, it’s kinda hard to say. I’ll let you be the judge.
