As a dedicated member of Team Bey Bey Knowles, I am always rooting for her success–be it in the form of song and dance, or in her awards ceremony get-ups. Remember when her mother used to dress her and the rest of the Destiny Child crew in flamboyant ghetto-fab debutante ball-gowns? I always prayed for her emancipation from the cringe-worthy styling.
These days, Bey has been looking great in her music videos. I loved her Betty Page-inspired style in “Video Phone,” and in the recent video for “Why Don’t You Love Me,” directed by MELINA & Bee Z, she’s nailed the Madonna/whore complex–looking like Marilyn Monroe during the Joe Dimaggio-years–a hyper-sexualized, vampy starlet, longing for normalcy and marital bliss. Of course, she failed, and as does Beyonce’s character in the video. The important thing is, she looked spectacular trying!
PS. going to also take the time to give her sis Solange a little seal of hipster approval. She’s been so stupid awesome lately. See her performance with the Dirty Projectors at the Opening Ceremony party a few months ago. Still so sad I couldn’t go.
