Who can drop an album with no marketing what so ever and sell millions of copies in record time??? Ummm…Beyonce can. Run the World was freaken mind-blowing. Every penny I paid was worth it. Like, you really get a show. I can’t speak the same for her BFF though, lol. Nicki, you’re great. But I was less than satisfied. Maybe you just weren’t feelin Oakland??? Oh well. Still love you 😘
Now, Beyonce has done it again. ***got everyone talkin about me***
Beyonce has always been political. ALWAYS. She has always used her platform to express her stance on just about everything she cares about. I mean really listen to her music. And her videos??? Come on. She puts her creativity down like no other! It’s art so beautifully sketched out. The synchronicity of it all. It flows flawlessly.
FORMATION. O.M.G. Some love it, others hate it. Again, there is a message. You see the sinking cop car and you automatically accuse her of being disrespectful. What do you think she was trying to say with her body laid across the police car as it was sinking along with her? Did you forget that part?
We’re so conditioned to think inside the box. It’s a sad generation when half of America believes Donald Trump is fit to be Chief Commander of the United States Of America. You people got me alllllll F*ed up!!! After all we’ve been through as a nation, has history not taught us a damn thing? I know there is just so much to absorb when it comes to politics. But as a citizen it’s our duty to do diligence when it comes to choosing a side. And remember, there are tons and tons of false statements on the internet so don’t read and watch a few videos and make your determination on that alone. It’s not that simple. And it bugs the hell out of me that people like to run their mouth without making a real effort 😡
I can see why there are two different sides. Just like with Trump. What happened? America is a great country. Yet, people would rather put flags of other countries on their cars. It’s one thing to be proud of your culture, but where’s your American flag? Why are we not as proud to be an American? We can live anywhere but we choose here. Land of the free. Sometimes too free. We can’t have it all. 😒
Beyonce has a larger platform than most to share her beliefs. Bottom line, there is not a soul who doesn’t know who she is. So for her to create such a political, racially driven (lets not forget sexism) video took the world by storm. Literally, everyone was in awe. How could you not be?!
I guess hearing all the bashing towards her has me feeling a little defensive 😈 I’m a beyhive 😅 But I can honestly say I’m someone who thinks things through. I will look at all sides. I will weigh all the pros ad cons before making a decision. I am not someone who will show you sympathy when you’ve done something wrong. I hold myself accountable for all my mistakes and I would do so for those I love. Even Beyonce, JLO or Hilary Clinton 🙂
FORMATION was not intended to disrespect anyone but the guilty. THAT’S IT. Just the guilty. Injustice is wrong. Dictatorship is wrong. A lot of us need to take a step back and reflect on our history. We’ve fought so hard to get to where we are. Equality matters. All lives matter. We need not to go backwards. I know Trump won’t win but I am so disappointed that so many stand by him.
Sometimes we have to step outside of our shoes and see it from another’s perspective. Many things aren’t black and white. Having an open mind is crucial when trying to change the world.We have to be OK with being brave. Admitting when we’re wrong. Understanding why some people are the way they are. Compassion, empathy…we need more of that. The Formation tour isn’t just a black thing. It’s an oppression thing. I know people may be tired of hearing the same old story. But it’s still a story when nothing has changed. So please, try to understand where Beyonce is coming from. There are some things that may urk us…like the whole Becky jab that Iggy didn’t like very much. At the same time Iggy, you’ve said some racist things yourself. Bottom line, the intention isn’t to personally attack the innocent. There’s a bigger role being portrayed through art here. But if you’re someone who doesn’t understand and appreciate art, you’ll never get it. And Beyonce will always be just another black angry woman in your eyes. 😒
