Beyoncé has become publicly in tune with her blackness, and has been giving us the audio and visual display to prove it. On the heel of the SUPERBOWL 50 controversy, she has put out a 8 minute mini documentary of her “Precious Lord” performance that was oddly somewhat stolen from Ledisi, as she was the singer in the Film “Selma”. The jury is still out on the Ledisi shade 😒 but Beyoncé highjacked the song and sang it, and tells us the song has special meaning to her and her family as she recalls her mother singing the Mahalia Jackson version when she was a young girl.
I’m a bit undecided as to why she chose the most softest spoken men for this documentary. Perhaps with the intent to give off the black men are non threatening and vulnerable vibe, which of course many are, but a good mix of that along with some deep strong voices, and bold masculinity wouldn’t have hurt either. I’m just saying. We are a wide range of people, all experiencing injustices and discrimination on various levels.
Give it a watch as she sings the old negro spiritual with an all male choir, giving us the back story and meaning of this song and how it still resonates today.
Ooooooh Queen Bey got them folks UPSET! People are calling for boycotts of Beyoncé and the SuperBowl for allowing her to perform her new song “Formation”. The video has many subliminal messages which pertain to black issues in America.
Sadly, some people just can’t handle the truth, or a black woman who is proud of her heritage. They refuse to be tolerant of a person who speaks up against injustices happening to minorities, even if it’s a subliminal message in a video.
For Chicago Code Blue among others to suggest that this is “Anti-Police Music” is beyond reaching. A simple message saying “Stop shooting us” written on a wall, or a drowning police car referencing Hurricane Katrina, does not translate into Anti-Police. People choose to turn this into something negative to avoid to true message of injustice that needs to be addressed.
I thank Beyoncé for her bravery with this self directed video. Speaking up for Your people, and against injustice takes guts. I really think Solange is starting to rub off on the Queen Bey…lol. We need more of this from the affluent African American in America.

Some are calling this cultural Appropriation while others debate its cultural Appreciation. Watch and judge for yourself.
The Carter’s are still celebrating Beyonce’s recent “BDay” trip with family. Enjoy pics of Beyonce & Jay Z with their adorable very tall daughter Blue Ivy, Jay’s mom and Ms. Tina Knowles with her new man :). Looks like they’re having a great time in Paris.
Tonight was opening night for the infamous “On The Run” Tour and Miami was the first stop. Of course the feedback is the show was amazing 🙌 and Beyoncé showed up and showed out as expected. Check out some of the pics from the show. Even her girl/sister Kelly Rowland was there with her baby bubble to support!
Bey ain’t no joke!
