'Single Ladies' poster: If you like it then you shoulda put a frame on it

single-ladies-poster_lI’m not sure when or if the “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” train will finally come to its inevitable, metallic, screeching halt, but either way, I raise a robotic-gloved hand in a “halt” gesture as means of saying “not yet.” Indeed, in the last month alone, Beyoncé’s irrepressible hit has spiced up Glee, Cougar Town, Sherri, The New Adventures of Old Christine, the 2009 MTV VMAs, and (as it has for the last year) my humble iPod Classic. Now, those of us you who were delivered “to a destiny, to infinity and beyond” by the beastly good choreography set down by B and her backup dancers in the “Single Ladies” video can preserve those international good vibes in the form of a screenprint poster by Canadian artist Todd Stewart. (Hat tip to worldfamousdesignjunkies.com for the heads up.) I won’t ask you all what you think of the 22″ x 30″ poster. Instead I’d like to know: Would my husband have grounds for divorce if I hung it in our living room?

    That poster is godawful ugly. Like, ‘really bad half-finished Project Runway dress made from vile fabric’ ugly. If my husband brought that into our bedroom not only would I divorce him, I would burn the poster and poke out my eyes for having viewed it in person!

  • crispy

    Those are Warholian cool. But don’t hang it in your living room… hang it in your bedroom. :)

      Warhol RIPOFF.
      Of course it was he who said that art is what you can get away with.
      Sadly, he was right.
      I really wish the trend toward lazy manipulated images would end. Boring and requires no talent. Typical of Montreal arsehats like this one, who are a dime a dozen and all specialise in poster art that requires no talent or skill whatsoever.

    Wow, even I as a liberal am sick of Slezak referring to his “husband” (a.k.a., “Support gay marriage
    !!!”) in every article he writes.

    • eden

      ummm….. I think he’s referring to him as his husband because that’s who he is… not to further the evil gay agenda. Very liberal of you.

      Agree with eden. If I slipped out that I’m married (not, but whatever) in every article I write to reference a home life, does that mean I’m trying to get people to support marriage?

      Slezak referencing his husband isn’t so he can show off that he’s married (don’t know if he’s just using the term or whatnot). He’s using it in the same way someone would reference a wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, etc.

      • Demented & Deluded Liberal

        Well I don’t really accept your premise that it would “slip out” in “every article” you wrote. After a certain number of times, it begins to be volitional and indicative of some other motive.

        Look, I’m not even saying it’s a big deal, it’s just a little irritating and that’s all I meant to get across.

      Heaven forbid he have a family.

    • talkin’

      pish tosh

    • Penny

      Why wouldn’t he mention his husband? It’s as normal as a heterosexual guy mentioning his wife. His husband is a part of his life, and like other columnist, his writing reflects what goes on in his life.

  • Michael

    No shame. I’d do it.

  • allie

    To be clear I was agreeing with D&D Liberal, not Eden…. I don’t think I responded in the right place. Gay marriage isn’t even real!

    • Scooter

      allie–thanks for clarifying that, in fact, you are a dumba$$.

    • Dr. Zaius

      My snark demon is coming out.

      So all of those states passed laws about figments of imagination? Who would’ve thunk they were that stupid?!

    • Dark Dot

      No honey, you didn’t respond in the “right place”: the AFA’s annoying blog, surely just longing for your opinion, is elsewhere. The enlightened hang out here.

    • talkin’

      come to Canada, hun

  • reese

    Slezak’s gay? Cool.

  • Lauren

    Wow. This article is about a poster guys. Can’t pop culture commentary be about just that?

    • Demented & Deluded Liberal

      Which comes back to why I said what I did.

      • Dark Dot

        You’re missing the fact that this is *not* an article, it’s a blog post. Blogs inherently rely upon the opinion and perspective of the writer, who draws upon his or her life to add commentary to the piece. This isn’t a freaking report in which the author must just “stick to the facts, ma’am”.

        Besides, had Slezak instead written, “Would my significant other have grounds for divorce if I hung it in our living room?”, would you still have such an issue with the statement? If the answer is ‘no’ (and let’s be real: the answer *is* ‘no’), then there’s an issue, and that issue is you.

      • Fatima

        Dark Dot gets 50 million points.

  • Nicole

    um, it’s UGLY. Put some real art in your living room.

  • Karena

    Any poster from Beyonce’s hit Halo would be sweet- I couldn’t get into this song at all and I’m not the only one. All the more reason to hate Kanye West for assuming everyone and their uncle loved the video and the song. Me, neither.

  • @ImStillToni

    I had no clue Sleazak was gay, yet now more and more subtle comments make so much mroe sense! hahaha u crack me up Michael and yes, that is NOT Art and your husband would have grounds for cruel and unusual punishment if you hand that up in your house (on the flip side, I made it my background cuz I love it! lmao)

  • Hilaryy

    No way Slezak, totally acceptable livingroom art. Put it up in celebration that you were smart enough to Put A Ring On It!!!

  • gmcfly

    Not a fan of the faceless cartoons. This needs to be remade with Slezak, Kristen Baldwin, and Paula Abdul in those poses.

    I’m sure husband-of-Slezak would agree.

  • ovalroaster

    i like it.

  • pomegranate02

    That’s seriously the poster? Um… I think the answer to your question is, ‘yes, he would have grounds for divorce’ (but only ’cause the poster is verrrrry ugly).
