I had so many questions. I still have questions…
It’s a difficult one, because I’m a fan of Beyoncé. I’m not a Beyhive but I do enjoy her music every now again and I can confidently sing the lyrics to some of her songs, if it came down to it. It’s not about that. It’s about the fact I still came away with questions. Like, why do people have extreme opinions when it comes to her? How does she really feel about being in the spotlight. What does she do under all this pressure of trying to perfection all the time? Things like that. It also opened my eyes to see that, in society we hold people in very high esteem almost in idolisation and sometimes that escalates to extreme portions.
From watching this I did come to a couple of conclusions:
- Beyoncé is in fact human like the rest of us and she goes through times of feeling stressed, tired etc. like the rest of us.
- Because we hold these so called celebrities in such high esteem and put them on a pedestal, it’s added pressure to continually be perfect. It’s not just Beyoncé but others too. Some cant take the pressure behind closed door, constantly having to be “switched on” it can take it toll.
- In relation to the above point, despite the pressures, she was able to take in stride and pull off an amazing Coachella experience but I was still underwhelmed.
Overall, it was because it was Beyoncé, I was curious. As I’ve said before in a previous post, I appreciated the sentiment of what it represented, I just wanted to see less of what I already knew.
So, if you haven’t watched it and like me, your curiosity was quipped then go watch it. If it wasn’t that’s okay too. Just don’t feel like you should because I’ve said so. 😁
Peace & Love 😊❤
