i am a middle-aged woman at heart and that’s okay
good night everyone
happy beyoncé day
i mean i obviously don’t know her personal life but i mean hey with some of the lyrics even at the beginning when she references her child it could be a very big reference towards postpartum depression (speculation!!!) and the way it affects her way of thinking in terms of her husband being on tour and what not and it’s definitely a very anxious but romantic song to me??? every couple, in and out of marriage, has their problems and frankly fighting is entirely natural in a relationship. but there’s an affection in that song that basically says even amidst all the fighting and lonely days that person is still mine/yours/whatever.
it’s 5am i hope this makes sense i should sleep
ok last post before i go to sleep this is going to be so gay and rambly good bye but like god i’ve listened to so many of these songs over and over and sooooo much of this album is clearly very personal and inspired by motherhood in a way that motherhood does not usually come across because she doesn’t just focus on her child (although it’s clear she does through the final song) but more so being able to hang on to her own persona post-marriage and child compared to women who get lost in their husbands and kids and being able to find herself sexy post-child where so many women can never really recover from that experience and find themselves unsexy for good and she even addresses criticism of her being married to a powerful man and him having all the influence which is so so so wrong because with this album she wholly solidifies the fact that she is first and foremost her own women and one who knows that loving herself is just as important as loving her partner and child
if you can’t love yourself then how the hell are you gonna love somebody else
can bey get an amen
my faaaaavorite thing about the videos is like even when it’s presenting beyoncé in a sexual manner it feels so natural and beautiful and not exploitative in the slightest and she is in full control of her sexuality and you can FEEL IT and i am absolutely in love with the woman who directed all these videos she is as much of a queen as bey in my eyes right now
how are you gonna tell me some tacky ass white folks beat bey good bye
bey didn’t care about the career you got in the morning, the exam you gotta study for, the direct deposit that ain’t going in until 10am, your previous plans or your future endeavors. she walked into the itunes office with a jump drive, said, “tonight,” and walked the fuck out with blue ivy laughing maniacally on her hip and hova waiting in the whip.
this is called power.
probably shouldn’t have put the album and all the videos on my ipad and phone lmao
i remember reading something the other day that was about how not a single artist of color had a #1 this year or s/t like that but if bey releases blow as a single next week she will RULE THE CHARTS FOREVER
