Thanks To Beyonce, Now Everybody Can Do The Robot

Calling all cyborgs. Remember that metal glove Beyonce wore? The look may become as ubiquitous as thigh-high boots. Designer Lorraine Schwartz created the glove for the singer’s I Am … Sasha Fierce album. “She wanted something a little bit harder and robotic,” says Schwartz.

What’s Up With Beyonce’s Bionic Hand?

Beyonce has been promoting her multiple-personality album I Am…Sasha Fierce, which will be released tomorrow, and in at least three recent performances — the World Music Awards, the MTV Europe Music Awards, and “Saturday Night Live” — she has worn a piece of jewelry that resembles the hand of a robot. Upon closer inspection, you’ll notice that the glove is basically a full-hand ring. At first, we thought Beyonce was wearing her special glove whenever she performed as Sasha Fierce, her sassier alter-ego, but this theory doesn’t pan out because she wore the hand when she performed “If I Were A Boy,” which is on the Beyonce part of the album.
