“Beyoncé isn’t Beyoncé because she reads comments on the Internet. Beyoncé is in Ibiza, wearing a stomach necklace, walking hand in hand with her hot boyfriend. She’s going on the yacht and having a mimosa. She’s not reading shitty comments about herself on the Internet, and we shouldn’t either. I just think, Would Beyoncé be reading this? No, she would just delete it or somebody would delete it for her. What I really need to do is close the computer and then talk back to that voice and say, Fuck you. I don’t give a shit what you think. I’m Beyoncé. I’m going to Ibiza with Jay-Z now, fuck off. Being criticized is part of the job, but seeking it out isn’t. That’s our piece to let go.”

God, I fucking love Kathleen Hanna. Can I just go on and on and on about how I love Kathleen Hanna? Here she is in conversation with Melissa Febos, author of Whip Smart: A Memoir and a former dominatrix, whom I interviewed two years ago. This part is amazing and something anyone who works in a creative field should have tattooed on their brain (and ego): “Being criticized is part of the job, but seeking it out isn’t.” Let’s all get in touch with our inner Sasha Fierce!
