BEYONCE TALKS FINDING HER OWN POWER, FEMINISM, AND FORMATION

Beyonce doesn't do interviews too often. It kinda leaves me wondering most of the time what this goal or that goal is, when I bother to wonder. Clutch Magazine observes that Beyonce is nothing if not a controller of her image. Therefore, I suppose it's intelligent to not spout off every 10 seconds (Somebody tell Kanye...or not.) 

This interview though? Agree with all the details of each of her statements or not, she is bold.  

White run media outlets who have reviewed Beyonce's Elle interview are thinking about one thing, the same ole thing:

Soothing the white tears.

The unremitting gall it takes to write multiple articles about how Beyonce doesn't hate the police.


Google it for yourself if  you don't believe this snapshot.


White supremacy protected, mostly white police officers are gunning us down. And a black woman has to reassure the white folks that she doesn't hate the police just those exercising police brutality without so much as a hitch in their giddy-up. 
Really?  

The only NON-people-of-color news outlet that seems to have noticed that the her interview was not about apologizing for her Black History Month video and subsequent performance, but feminism instead was Huff Post

Beyonce speaks on...



POWER


In regards to discovering her own power, she talks about how her record label, back in 1998, under estimated her and the rest of Destiny's Child (didn't really care what they were doing or how-- implied) and allowed them creative control of songs and videos. Souns like the record label didn't know what they had until Destiny's Child was ruling the airwaves. 


FEMINISM


FORMATION (RACE)My favorite quote:


"If celebrating my roots and culture during Black History Month made anyone uncomfortable, those feelings were there long before a video and long before me. I’m proud of what we created and I’m proud to be part of a conversation that is pushing things forward in a positive way."
