FKA TWIGS VOGUING AT WEBSTER HALL, GREATEST MOMENT IN MUSIC THIS WEEK
RECOGNIZE A QUEEN WHEN YOU SEE ONE
I have never been more excited that a year was coming to a close. This one was awful. I just pray that 2014 is better, because it really can’t get much worse than this.
It wasn’t all bad. I’m *this close* to being a college graduate. I got to see Queen Beyonce. Our family grew. I’m still alive. I did a lot of cool shit. My friends are amazing. I’m much more focused on my own purpose in life, and what I need to do to accomplish it.
Over this post. Listen to Beyonce, drink wine, and enjoy the new year.
Beyoncé, a.k.a. goddess among mortals slash queen of everything, dropped a surprise album this morning — and guess what? She sampled a TEDx Talk! One of our favorites, actually. It’s a killer talk by author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie about gender and femaleness and why we should all be feminists. You can hear the excerpt above in the second verse of ”***Flawless,” bookended by Beyoncé reminding you that she can own it. TEDxEuston, FTW.
