Rufus Wainwright 'sick' of Beyonce Get Tickets

Singer songwriter calls her 'formulaic'

Rufus Wainwright 2005
Rufus Wainwright has slated Beyonce’s music.

The singer songwriter has said that he is ‘sick’ of the former Destiny’s Child musician.

Wainwright said: “I’m really sick of Beyonce. All of her songs are formulaic and produced in the basest way. There’s no enlightenment. Like most mainstream pop these days, it’s more of a scientific experiment than an artist experience.

“But hey, it’s your life, you know,” he told Spin magazine.

Wainwright is set to play the Other Stage at the Glastonbury Festival on June 22.

He then plays the following UK shows:

Brighton Dome Theatre (June 24)
Oxford New Theatre (25)
Folkestone Leas Cliff (27)
