Beyonce Tops Ladies First Triple Threat

Edna Gundersen of USA Today took part in an online chat with the newspaper’s readers on Tuesday (April 13) and was asked what she thought about the Ladies First Tour with Alicia Keys, Beyonce Knowles and Missy Elliott. “I think Beyonce is emerging as the dominant force for several reasons,” Gundersen explained. “She’s flashier eye candy, she’s coming off a big Grammy triumph, her hit singles are undeniable and her story is more familiar to the mainstream. That said, I don’t think she’s necessarily more talented that her stage sisters. Keys has more depth, Missy is more innovative. But it’s a triple threat, no doubt. I’m eager to see this show.”
