Here’s what you need to know from Beyonce’s new retrospective short film.
To celebrate the one-year anniversary of her massive self-titled surprise album, Beyonce released a nearly 12-minute long public service announcement about how awesomely self-aware and spiritual she is while we remain basic bitches struggling to live from check to check.
Honestly, her insight into fame, life and love is very intriguing and gets mad respect from me.
Here are the highlights:
Fame: “I sometimes wish I could just be anonymous and walk down a street, just like everyone else… Now that I’m famous, it’s really really difficult to do very simple things… When you’re famous, no one looks at you like a human anymore. You become the property of the public. There’s nothing real about it.”
On growing up: “I always felt like it was my job to fix the problem; people pleaser, but I’m no longer afraid of conflict. I don’t think conflict is a bad thing, cause I know that when you grow up, when you learn a few things, you’re no longer afraid of letting go, of the unknown.”
Life: “I feel like my body is borrowed, and this life is very temporary.”
Marriage: “People feel like they lose something when they get married. It doesn’t have to be that way. There’s nothing more exciting about having a witness to your life.”
Feminism: “It’s a person that believes in equality for men and women.”
Happiness: “Comes from you. No one else can make you happy. You make you happy.”
