In our last post about B, we raised an eyebrow at her reluctance to call herself a feminist. Why? Because we believe she is a feminist and she should own it. That’s why we did a serious double-take at what Rakhi Kumar wrote about her in the Huffington Post last week.
In “An Open Letter to Michelle Obama”, Kumar reprimands the first lady for recognizing Beyonce as a role model for her two daughters:

The word “feminist” has a carried a bad rap for years. Women often shy away from the term because they fear it carries negative, radical, and anti-male connotations. Here at BUST we try to promote the positive reality of feminism and what it actually means to be a feminist. However, feminism is once more in the negative spotlight as female celebrities are shying away from the term as well.
In the most recent issue of British Vogue, Beyoncé Knowles was featured on the cover and avoided defining herself as a feminist when asked. Read More

What’s up with the secrecy, B? According to Newsday, Beyonce dropped her new song “Bow Down/I Been On” without any pre-release press or even a friendly head’s up. Which actually seems to fit as this new release is anything but “friendly.”
We’ve got hardcore mixing, lots of cursing, rap, and some crazy synth-sound manipulation, coupled with lyrics like, “I know when you were little girls you dreamt of being in my world. Don’t forget it. Respect that. Read More

Though Beyoncé started her career at a young age, it seems like she assumed an elder statesman role very early on. In a culture that is constantly finding new faces and flushing out one-hit wonders, she made damn sure she would not be going anywhere. And she hasn't had to worry about being knocked off her throne in the ten years since her solo debut, reigning over pop music beside her similarly iconic husband Jay-Z. She's become an undeniable fact of American culture, a Madonna-caliber powerhouse with a speed dial to the Oval Office. Read More

First you killed it at the inauguration with your unbelievable rendition of the National Anthem, when you ripped your earpiece out like the true diva that you are. Then we found out that you sang to a pre-recorded track. Don’t worry, we had your back, we know it was cold outside! Then you sang it again, acapella, at a Super Bowl Press Conference that you held and now you've blown us away with the half time show at the Super Bowl last night. Listen, we don’t care if you lip-synch, we honestly don’t care WHAT you do. Read More

Were you, like many Americans, left heartbroken after Beyoncé's inauguration lip-syncing kerfuffle? Here's something to take away the sting of her (pretty rational and defensible) betrayal: a Bad Lip Reading that, like the inauguration itself, is sure to go down in history. If you can make it past the lyric, "I stroked your swine/his name was Rusty", then you are far stronger a person than I. Check out the video below:
