Fans Not "Crazy in Love" With Beyoncé

7/20/2006 4:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Beyonce KnowlesDisgruntled fans of Beyoncé have started a petition to get the musical diva to reshoot the video for her new song "Deja Vu."

The plea to her label Columbia Records, tries to make the case that the video "is an underwhelming representation of the talent and quality of previous music video projects of Ms. Knowles." "Bug-a-Boo" anyone?

The petition outlines seven comical points of contention and claims the editing "causes one to get dizzy and disoriented", calls the dancing "erratic, confusing and alarming" and the fashion "unbelievable and ridiculous." Beyoncé's outfits unbelievable and ridiculous? No way!!

Regarding her scenes with real life boyfriend Jay-Z, the petition believes the sexual themes between the duo are "alarming and show unacceptable interactions between the two."

Hopefully Beyoncé's fans will like the rest of her latest music and can 'check on it' when her new album "B'day" drops on September 5.

Life is full of options; you have the option to watch or not to watch. All this drama for nothing, this is stupid and straight BULLSHIT, if you don't like Beyonce’s video then watch something else, Beyonce is a very entertaining artist and she is very good at what she does. All Haters and by haters I mean Dumb Ass people who can not appreciate talent when they see it because they follow untalented people such a Ciara, Ashanti & Brittany Spears need to find something else to focus on. We have important stuff going on in the world like why our troops are still at war. Again this is DUMB BULLSHIT, MOVE ON PEOPLE.

ok not only am i SERIOUSLY sick of Beyonce, but her songs all sound the same, her videos are all the same, and well, her voice hasnt grown or anything. so shes just making the same material with a new name each time she releases an album. if she cant create, than this isnt the field she should be in.

Her dancing are african, tribal dancing which are not very usual in Video....That's why most people find it strange. They are quite technical....She has to be a fabulous dancer to master them....
That's good to see something new for a change....Even if we are disturb by it

Beyonce is a great performer and has a great fashion sense, but she has been looking too skinny. What ever happened to being happy with yourself and loving all your BOOTYLICIOUSNESS!!!!

I've been a beyonce fan for years but I think she really lost it with this one. If this is the work she going to do without her dad....she really needs to get back with him. It's not jealousy the video looks like a acid trip! Why does she look so sweaty? Did you see the swan dance at the end? She looks really thin these days maybe she needs to eat to make a video that makes sense. First be and jay-z denied they were together now she's all over his private parts. Does it have something to do with the rumors about him and other women?

I am not a Beyonce fan nor am I a fan of Jay Z, but this video and her dance are pretty good. The song, besides the rap and hook, is good and I love her gut strength vocals. The locations and outfits match, besides that one short number. She is showing respect to Tina Turner, Michael Jackson, African dances, and beauty.

I am still not a fan of her, but she is without a doubt her own person. She makes you want to watch her, even if her music and video may be odd, irritating, or whatever other unpleasant adjective you can think of.

I am young African American woman, so you can't say I am out of touch or just an ignorant critic... she has talent and she doesn't use her voice to the grand level that she could. Her beauty is stunning, her dancing can sometimes be too dramatic but it has its moments and you can see the elements mix in from other performance styles. Instead of trying to please the simplicity of the younger Urban crowd, she should minic Angela Winbush and other woman of color who sang with soul and emotion.

I am proud of Beyonce and Jay Z. The dancing everyone is confused with, because it is never acknowledged and recognized, is African, Creole , and other delights of soul .. it is truly authentic. I am proud she represents as she does and has the energy to do so. To dance the way she dance takes a great deal of focus, discipline, and mastery. she is one of the most ntelligent, intuitive, and innovative artists around. I have waited for something like this for so long! Deja-vu is Haute ! .. to have included one of the greatest dance forms of all time in her videos is pure genius. I was elated and wanted to dance right along with her. Because when its real, its always wild ! Love you both , keep on shining!

Beyonce started of descent saying Destiny's Child were clean and not a bunch of hoochies, and now she has pimped herself or let Jay Z pimp her into the biggest hoochie of all! I also remember when Destiny Child appeared at the Dove Award/Christian Awards a couple of year's ago Beyonce herself dissed all the dirty dancing Hoochies on MTV/Bet saying she would never be like that-Check yourself Beyonce. It's a shame that Beyonce started of respectful and was a true success, once she got hooked up with that old Fugly Jay Z she has been pimped and is starting to lose fans for her now street corner ways. It happened to Whitney Houston once she got hooked up with Bobby Brown and Beyonce seem's to be heading down the path of self destruction over some fugly fool.

Well, I love beyonce and everything she does and i dont think the video was crazy. yea she may of had some dizzy moments but, when she did it at the bet awards it wasnt so bad. i just think she could do betta then jay z, he just aint the one. in the video he didnt even look at her and i heard he got something wit rihanna. so she need an upgrade. i luv the video i dance to it eveyday, the outfits were straight and went wit the backround. I Loved It!!!!! i think ppl should stop hatin on her cause she doin her thang. so b keep doin ya thing and makin that money. in the end they still gonna buy yo cd's.!!!

I use to love and repect her but she has killed it with all these "Crazy in Love, I'm soo Sprung" songs." She looked like a straight fool standing next to Jay with her face all in his crotch, puilling on his belt, getting spanked. Quit putting this dude on your records too and stand on your feet. You can sing!! If she says that she can't stop thinking about him or breathing with him one more time, i'm gonna scream! BUT ON SOME PIMP ISH, DID YOU ALL NOTICE HOW IN JAY'S 2ND LIL' VERSE SHE THROWS UP "THE ROC" INSTEAD OF HIM CALLING HER HIS BOO. I LAUGHED SOO HARD AT THAT. HE AIN'T EVEN CLAIMING HER.
