Beyonce’s Lemonade Stand

vanilla-lemonade-sl-xI have to admit that I was one of the millions of Beyonce fans to tune in to the HBO event that was Lemonade, featuring our beloved Beyonce. This is where the Bey Hive may come after me with their vile comments and misunderstanding of my personal opinion. I actually thought the documentary or movie…whatever you want to call it, was quite boring and depressing. But this doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate the talent behind the work of art that she has created here. There has been a shift in the image that is Beyonce in the last couple of years. She has become quite elusive and mysterious, which has piqued the interest of people world-wide. We try to grasp or define the full persona of this world wide super star and she continues to change, to evolve with her art. So no matter if I liked the latest music, I continue to respect and admire that she is a woman who is continuously hungry for world wide domination.

Instead of going in to whether her music is about her marriage or not, I wanted to linger on the fact that there was such a strong black presence in the video, that I immediately wanted to scream YES! til I strained my vocal cords, because the women of color were depicted as beautiful, sexy, and strong. I appreciated these depictions of our women, as sometimes we are viewed in such a negative light in the media. Beyonce aggressively revealed love and anger throughout the video, something that all women have experienced and are experiencing throughout life.

If we take anything from the Lemonade stand, we should take Beyonce’s alleged heart ache and reconciliation, and think about our own journey of love, loss, anger, and reconcile. And although I view recording artists as a tool for entertainment, there is still something to be learned here at the lemonade stand. Women can learn that no matter your success in life, continue to strive for world domination, never be content, and always understand that there is always more to be done.

Although I don’t believe that my personal opinion is important and will be changed regarding the music, I have decided to support such a legendary artist by purchasing her latest album. Why? Because I am a supporter of women who attempt to exceed the boundaries of reality and dominate the conversation regarding social issues permeating in our society.

The next consideration for the Lemonade stand is whether it should be nominated for an Emmy? Before you think that it shouldn’t, we must first consider the effect that Lemonade has had on our society, and even the world. If we forget about some of the lyrics that may offend some, she has created an evolution in visual arts that no other artist has embarked upon, or has been as successful on such a massive scale. Personally, the artistic prowess of this piece deserves at least a consideration, if not the award itself. #lemonade #Beyonce

Beyonce Shuts Down Divorce Rumors

Beyonce Shuts Down Divorce Rumors

The MTV Video Music Awards morphed into the Beyonce Video Music Awards today. There is no shame to admit that I am a huge fan, so it was a real treat for me to see another epic show from the queen. The awards show was just snippets of the On the Run Tour, which I was able to attend. If you have never seen Beyonce or Jay Z live, you are missing out on two epic performers.

As we all have been bombarded with rumors of divorce and separation, Beyonce and Jay Z so eloquently demonstrated their love for their daughter and one another while she was presented with the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award. Beyonce became emotional and embraced both Blu Ivy and Jay Z while the moon man was passed along to a much deserving entertainer.

What does this say about the rumor mill?

Who knows. Personally, I think every marriage has its ups and downs, and billionaires are no different. Of course the rumors will never subside as news outlets are fulfilling their rating quota in order to stay relevant.

However; what if they are headed for divorce and are trying to get along for the child? Again that would be their business. But it is important for people to understand that these two people still love and respect one another no matter their personal problems. I hope that they continue to raise their child among two people who will continue to love one another, even if it’s not a romantic love.

Jay Z alleged mistress taunts Beyonce with new music

Jay Z‘s alleged mistress taunts Beyonce with new music

Amid the continuous rumors regarding the marriage of power couple, Jay Z and Beyonce, an unknown rapper chick, Liv, has come forward proclaiming a past emotional relationship with the rap mogul.

To add shame to her cause, the female rapper sampled Outkast’s Sorry Ms. Jackson to taunt Queen Bey. In addition to numerous public appearances, Liv has released a corresponding music video with the titled song, Sorry Ms. Carter. The unknown rapper went on to profess the opportunity of having extramarital relations with Jay Z, but out of respect for Beyonce she chose to thwart the relationship. Liv also criticized Beyonce for teaching young girls how to “ride a surfboard” instead of participating in more socially acceptable activities.

Allegedly, Liv and Mr. Carter shared a joint interest in one another, but the relationship never progressed to a physical extramarital affair. After reading the plethora of gossip columns focused primarily on the supposed cheating scandal, it is obvious that any sane person would dismiss these accusations as nothing but the ramblings of a starving artist desperate for her ten minutes of fame.

The hip hop power couple has maintained an unsolicited media dominance after the infamous elevator mishap in which Solange Knowles rendered a violent beat-down onto Jay Z for unknown reasons. Since the beginning of theirOn The Run Tour, Jay Z and Beyonce have received an overhaul of media coverage focusing on the durability of their marriage. The release of Sorry Ms. Carter has further ignited the rumors of a failing marriage among the Carters.

The Bey Hive will enjoy ripping this woman’s non-existent career to shreds.

Beyonce Illuminati Queen

Have you ever read a Beyonce article, then clicked on another related article because you wanted to know more about the mega star? Well, as an avid reader, and a fan of Mrs. Carter, I find myself reading about her various projects quite frequently. Unfortunately, when you click these links for further reading, you tend to run into the craziest conspiracy theories on the net.

**

  1. Beyonce didn’t give birth to Blue IVY Carter: Y’all really! Why in the hell would she fake a pregnancy? Some circus acts theorize that she didn’t want to carry her child out of fear she would lose her figure! Viewing the comments about this conspiracy, I am convinced that people are out of their minds. If I was Beyonce, I would have taped the baby exiting my vagina during birth just to establish the hard and disgusting truth about my pregnancy. If that means showing my lady parts to the world, then so be it. (Just Kidding)

 

  1. Beyonce made a blood sacrifice to the Illuminati: Again, crazy! Why is it so hard to believe that Beyonce became famous through hard work and initiative. Have y’all heard this girl sing? Have y’all seen her perform? She is just awesome plan and simple! So when I see comments stating that she had to make a blood sacrifice to become successful, I just want to slap some people.

 

  1. Beyonce worships the devil and becomes possessed while performing: I have heard actual educated people proclaim that this woman becomes possessed when she performs. All I could do was shake my head because only an idiot would think like this. Let’s think about it for real! As soon as Beyonce hits the stage, an evil spirit possesses her body, to what? What is the purpose of a dancing and singing demon? lmao

Dranking Watermelon?

Dranking Watermelon

Did you guys know what “dranking watermelon” really meant in Beyonce’s song? Raise your hand if you thought Beyonce was singing about drinking a fruity alcoholic beverage in her lyrics “I be dranking, watermelon.” I promise I thought this was a watermelon margarita, or some expensive drink that celebrities drink all the time while chilling on the beach. Never thought it was this nasty!
