B is for Beyonce #atozchallenge

I don’t think anyone has a bad word to say about my second diva – Queen B  – aka Mrs  Carter, aka Sasha Fierce. This lady might be a diva, but she has a heart of Gold, in December 2016 she was named the Most Charitable Celebrity of the year, she’s not spending all those dollars on herself.

Recently Queen B has been doing what all mums do  – go grocery shopping! Look for bargains and push a trolley (shopping cart to you guys in the US) around the supermarket, what’s the big deal? she’s a diva,  I hear you say…she shouldn’t be doing that! she has minions to do that for her…. yeah I know, but sometimes you just want to touch and feel what you’re buying. Good on you Mrs Carter I say.

The latest story about this diva is the ‘Who bit Beyoncé non-story? – as if anyone would dare get close enough to touch her face  let alone sink their teeth into her,  a whole load of cods wallop (fishguts🤮) and speculation going nowhere is my verdict!

 

What’s interesting is that Beyoncé lets this speculation fester rather than shutting it down. “She doesn’t provide the answers,” says Canadian journalist Lainey Lui. “She makes us look for the answers – you don’t just enjoy Beyoncé, you study Beyoncé. To create this distance, this mystique, requires discipline – the discipline to release your work into the world without being tempted to explain it. So it really doesn’t matter whether anything is proven or disproven. It matters more that she remains elusive.” and why not? She is definitely a female version of a hustler… Divalicious.. I still want to know where this non-story is going and what the point of it is. 15 secs of fame for the alleged biter, we have yet to see.

Queen B  is a mistress of contradiction. Her on-stage persona exudes this sexy all knowing diva,  she says its all just for show, She embodies female empowerment, struting her stuff in her videos and singing her heart out,  she controls as much of her destiny as she can – we all know we can’t control it all! Beyoncé owns her brand and slays it eveyday, even her wiki page reads like the beginning of a well written and researched biography – Beyoncé runs her world.

Inspirations:  Beyoncé said in an interview with GQ magazine that”Even the silliest little thing that you hear on the radio, comes from something deeper. ’Bootylicious’ was funny, but it came from people saying that I had gained weight and me being like, ’I’m a southern woman, and this is how southern women are.’ My motivation is always to express something or to heal from something or to laugh and rejoice about something.”

 

Bio

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles was born in 1981 in Houston, Texas.

She started off in a teenage girl group called Girls Tyme, the group changed their name to Destiny’s Child in 1996. In 1997, Destiny’s Child released their major label debut song “Killing Time” on the soundtrack to the 1997 film, Men in Black. The following year, the group released their self-titled debut album, scoring their first major hit “No, No, No”. The album won the group three Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards for Best R&B/Soul Album of the Year, Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist, and Best R&B/Soul Single for “No, No, No“. The group released their Multi-Platinum second album The Writing’s on the Wall in 1999. The record features some of the group’s most widely known songs such as “Bills, Bills, Bills”, the group’s first number-one single, “Jumpin’ Jumpin'” and “Say My Name“, which became their most successful song at the time, listening to it today, it is still classy and relevant. 

Fast forward to 2003 and Beyoncé branched out from the young supremes to release Dangerously in Love and her fame and well justified Divadom has been skyrocketing ever since.

Her latest work Lemonade was released on April 23, 2016, it was nominated for nine awards at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards (2017), winning Awards for Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best Music Video. Its leading single “Formation” received nominations for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Music Video, while “Hold Up”, “Don’t Hurt Yourself”, and “Freedom” were nominated in pop, rock, and rap categories. 

Lemonade was listed as the sixth greatest album made by a woman of all time by NPR.

Nuff said. Beyoncé, keep on slaying it girl.
