Watch Beyoncé’s “Run The World (Girls)” Video
Beyoncé debuted her “Run The World (Girls)” music video on “American Idol” last night and it’s the same-old Beyoncé motifs we know and (sometimes) love: scantily clad beauties declaring their independence and power through bellydancing. Queen Beyoncé’s got a court of statuesque handmaidens — and even a real, live lion. When a gang of nondescript male invaders penetrate her lady-sanctuary (no, that’s not a euphemism), Queen B challenges the blokes to a dance-off. I’ll let you guess who wins. There’s feminist undertones of the song, sure — lyrics like “we’re smart enough to make the millions, strong enough to bear the children” — but there’s also lyrics like “my persuasion builds a nation” which she sings while writhing in the dust wearing a black leather body suit. Not that I’m surprised: Beyoncé’s got a Ph.D. in songs that a woman’s most valuable power is her sexuality — which is one form of power, yes, but a rather tired one for post-millenial female pop stars. It’s a catchy song, but ultimately it only makes me like more nuanced pop stars like Lady Gaga more. [YouTube]
