I Need Beyonce’s List Of Feminist Videos To Watch On YouTube ASAP

Beyonce dropped her fifth solo record without warning last Friday around midnight, and the only post-release promotion she’s done thus far has been a couple of explanatory, behind-the-scenes-esque videos about the making of the album. The first, “Self-Titled #1″ was posted the night of Beyonce’s release, and a second was posted on YouTube and Bey’s Facebook…

Mommie Dearest: On Beyoncé, Motherhood & Feminism

I’m not sure if you heard, but Beyoncé recently dropped a new album, causing everyone to question what they thought they knew about music, videos, and even feminism. Nothing highlights the latter better than both the video for “Pretty Hurts,” about airbrushed beauty culture, and her song “Flawless,” where Beyoncé samples parts of writer Chimamanda Ngozi…

The Soapbox: On “Pretty Hurts” & Beyonce’s Critique Of Airbrushed Beauty Culture

Three or so days in, I’ve listened to Beyonce’s new, self-titled record straight through at least a dozen times. I say with all seriousness that I believe it is her masterpiece, one of those increasingly rare albums in which every track is essential to the overall story. While I have my favorites, there is not one track…

Weekend Shut-In Worksheet: Read The NY Times’ Story “Invisible Child,” DIY Wrapped Paper & Listen To Shovels & Rope

Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do,

4 Things To Know About Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, The Nigerian Author Sampled On Beyonce’s Song “Flawless”

There are a number of featured cameos on Beyonce’s new self-titled album, released late last night/this morning — husband Jay Z, Drake, Frank Ocean, even daughter Blue Ivy. But the most interesting cameo to me, as a feminist, is Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a Nigerian author who’s TEDx talk is sampled on “Flawless.” At the end of…

Beyonce Is Just Trolling Vegans Now

Here’s my theory: this whole “going vegan for 22 days” thing was allllllll Jay Z’s idea and he swindled Beyonce into participating. But Bey is starting to miss meat and cheese and dairy and all of its associated deliciousness, and a quiet rage at both Jay and the vegan lifestyle has started to brew inside her. So…

That’s A Lot Of Look: Beyonce Wears Her Love For Pizza

For the record, in this case, “That’s A Lot Of Look” means OH MY GOD BEST OUTFIT EVER. Beyonce and Jay Z may be eating vegan for the month, but that doesn’t mean she can’t wear her love for ooey-gooey cheese and pepperoni. I am in awe. Check out a few more shots after the jump. [Photos:

Watch Beyonce Sing A Duet With A Blind Fan

Another day, another incident of Beyonce making dreams come true. This weekend, at a show in Perth, Australia, Beyonce singled out a 13-year-old blind fan named Sophie, who also has muscular and hearing difficulties, and asked her to sing “Irreplaceable” with her. She then stroked Sophie’s face and serenaded her and it was amazing. Afterwards,…

Beyoncé Got Groped By A Zombie Hand This Halloween

Australia doesn’t even celebrate Halloween, but that didn’t stop Queen Bey and her crew from whipping up some costumes while on tour. Beyoncé dressed as an angel, but a kinda devilish one. She seems to be enjoying that ass grab from a severed zombie hand a bit too much.
But enough about Bey, though —…

Shawn Carter Snags Vanity Fair Cover, Talks Bed-Stuy, Blue Ivy, And Bey

Jigga what? The Brooklyn-born rapper-turned-multimedia mogul, looking characteristically cleaned-up in a stark white suit, will line November newsstands on the cover of Vanity Fair. Jay Z has always given good interview, but a VF cover story is another matter entirely … and if the excerpts from the piece are any indication, Young Hov delivers. The…
