Matrimony itself has only been a concern of Beyoncé’s music in recent years, especially since her marriage to Jay-Z. Prior to this, romantic afflictions still pervaded her music. Her first solo single, ‘Crazy in Love’ details the singer’s obsession with a male lover, leading her to act uncharacteristically. Both “Baby Boy” and ‘Naughty Girl’ contain similar lyrics and messages. In fact, the first solo album is named ‘Dangerously in Love.’
This is not however the first time Beyoncé has conceived of an alternate persona to help her with her music. Sasha Fierce debuted in 2008, claiming to be the artists on stage alter ego whilst performing. She revealed herself to the public in Beyoncé’s subtly named third album, I am… Sasha Fierce (2008).
Let’s just address the elephant on the blog… as of late there has certainly been a flood of posts directly about Feminism. Something I’m quite passionate about. If the word scares you I can’t comprehend why so, women asking for equality shouldn’t scare anyone.
The internet is a big place and every so often I come across something that really makes me think. I guess you could say this post has been buzzing in my mind ever since I watched this video. Although the video talks about ‘being Present’ in terms of Islam – I believe the message is for every one of every, any or no religion.
Hailed by husband and renowned rapper Jay-Z as ‘the greatest entertainer of all time’ at the 2014 VMAs, Beyoncé Knowles has become a significant cultural tour de force. Originating as a member of teen group Destiny’s Child during the 1990s, over the past ten years she has become a solo sensation with five bestselling albums.
In a recent black and white shoot for Interview magazine, Keira Knightley decided to strip back – literally – and bare it all. So hang on, a really famous, beautiful and successful actress, who is constantly ranked in lists such as: 100 hottest women’s for men’s magazines with an acceptable body size/shape did a photo shoot without any photoshopping to her body?
Elle magazine’s December issues is making a huge hoot and ha over Feminism. Which I think is great. Cover star: yours truly, Emma Watson. Lets talk about the controversy that was encountered by peoples at Elle when David Cameron was asked if he would take a picture in the above pictured t-shirt and he refused. Five times.
The video in discussion has been taken down. I think that says it all, but if you really want to you can watch it here. Ever wondered what a PG rated Disney show gone extremely wrong would look like, well, something like the F-Bombs for Feminism trainwreck is quite close. I’m all for Gender equality.
I’m not really one of those oh look pink and fluffy, let’s go shopping, shiny shoes kind-of girl. Not that there is anything wrong with being that type of girl. It’s cool. I just get really tired shopping and I find it awkward and painful most of the times.
Can you tell I’ve become a tad-bit obsessed with jewellery. I love most of the stuff handmade trinkets on Etsy. Would it be a tiny-winey bit unusual if I bought everything in this post. The weird thing is I’m not even a jewellery wear-er, I find that when I wear jewellery I fiddle with it too much and end up losing it!
