PVOTD: “Sorry” by Beyoncé

 

It’s a good day, y’all.  Democrats are protesting gun control by literally sitting on the floor of the House, and Beyoncé has blessed us with this standalone version of “Sorry.”  If my new Kylie Lip Kit arrives today, I might lose it.

“***Flawless” by Beyoncé

 

One day I will devote the time it will take to write about why I love Beyoncé so much.  In the meantime, let us celebrate her genius through videos.  ***Flawless is one of my favorite songs on this album.

First off, the hip-hop rappin Girls Tyme.  Second, this video is DOPE.  Third, the message of this song is awesome.  Beyoncé has given us so many anthems and/or all-time phrases.  And here she is again, just GIVING us like three more.  Tell me you haven’t used/heard the terms – Flawless, I woke up like dis, or bow down, bitches – in the last year.  Why?  Because it’s awesome.  Do it.  Shake your hands in front of your face and say “I woke up like dis!”  And then strike a pose and say “we flawless.”  Now tell me you’re not feelin’ yourself right now.  Fourth, Skeleton Crew.

Bow down, bitches.

PVOTD: “Grown Woman” by Beyoncé

The other day, my mom emailed me an article about how Iggy Azalea’s career is over and how she’s racist and homophobic, blah, blah, blah.  My mom was concerned, because I love Iggy (I wrote a blog about it). The article made me laugh a little bit, then I thought of this Beyoncé video.  The song is pretty self explanatory.  The video is INCREDIBLE and one of my favorites of all time.  It features Baby Beyoncé, Beauty Queen Yoncé, and even Amazon Yoncé.  I could, and do, watch it all day.

Point is, everyone is a critic.  Iggy is a racist, Miley is a whore, Meghan Trainor is ruining America.  Haters gonna hate.  Meanwhile, these bitches be like…

How Do I Love Iggy Azalea? Let Me Count The Ways.

I’m literally just going to count the ways.

ONE:  Iggy Azalea’s first two singles were number one and number two simultaneously.  There has been one other artist to do that.  The Fucking Beatles.

TWO:  Iggy Azalea is 24 years old.  She was born in 1990!  She grew up in a town of about 2,000, in a house her dad built himself with mud bricks.  At 16, she dropped out of school and cleaned hotel rooms until she earned enough money to go to Miami.  She told her parents it was a vacation, then when she got there, told them she was staying to become a rapper.  OG.

THREE:  She’s an Australian, pale-skinned, FEMALE RAPPER. I absolutely love female rappers.  Why?  Because the point of being a rapper is to be a BAMF.  A female BAMF is the dream.

FOUR:  Did I mention she moved to Miami when she was SIXTEEN.  She worked her ass off and got noticed.  She started hanging out with T.I.  They have like five songs together.  If you don’t know how great T.I. is, please reference this link HERE.

FIVE:  She opened for Beyoncé on the Asian and Australian legs of the Mrs. Carter tour.  Beyoncé is powerful and she runs her empire.  If an artist is opening for her, it’s because Beyoncé likes them.

SIX:  Dat BOOTY.  Seriously.  Google that one yourselves.  

SEVEN: Girl is from rural Australia and she loves American pop culture just as much as I do.

EIGHT:  This Line – “Valley Girls givin’ blow jobs for Louboutins.  Whatcha call dat?  Head over heels?”

NINE:  She has passed Lil’ Kim as the female rapper with the longest-leading number one single on the Billboard Hot 100.  LIL’ KIM.

TEN:  She’s dating SWAGGY P.
