Beyonce plays to her broad fan base – from adults to preschoolers


It’s a big week for Beyonce Knowles. Her mature-themed movie, “Obsessed,” was No. 1 at the weekend box office. And today she appears on kid’s cartoon “Wow Wow Wubbzy” as Shine, the lead singer of girl group the Wubb Girlz.
Knowles is featured on multiple episodes of the animated show this week on Nickelodeon. Having conquered music and movies, this is the singer’s first children’s project.
She’s following a path blazed by other celebrities. In recent weeks, we’ve had Jack Black on “Yo Gabba Gabba,” Johnny Depp on "SpongeBob SquarePants," and Ricky Gervaise and Paul Rudd on “Sesame Street.”
Knowles will have to bring her "A" game to top my favorite celebrity cameo in recent years: Alicia Keys on “The Backyardigans.” She played an animated Martian mom who sang “Almost Everything Is Boinga” on the episode “Mission to Mars.” Great voice for a great song.
