Growing Woman! Thanks for being so real!!
I know I’m super late, but i am playing catch up being in a marriage that took my identity and confidence and growth! I wasn’t allowed to listen to nothing but church music for 11 years of my life and was alienated from family and friends and basically the world. I cried listening to this and what mad her take the huge step to finally break free of all the ppl on here who are so quick to say whatever negative things that come to their minds about another person’s craft. It takes a lot of courage to sing in front of people period, but to let us in and share these types of songs that are personal or that gives us a peek into how you feel or what you are going through at a certain point in your life so people like these hating, judgmental a**, people can give their negative opinions on who they think you are or think you are not is very inspiring and humbling. I see these negative comments and don’t understand how can you get on here and be so ignorant and mean? Why can’t you just not say anything at all if you don’t have anything nice and uplifting and encouraging to say about someone else's work or craft. There is constructive criticism and then there are these miserable people who loves to try and talk down on an obviously talented, hard working, passionate, and inspiring artists like Queen B just bc one of her many albums or songs doesn’t apply to your da** life! She is NOT a robot and since God made us all different she is NOT going to always feel like you do! You guys remind me of my ex husband…the ones who has only known Beyoncé through the songs she has written or song throughout her long career and not in person at all, but then say she is having an identity crisis or trying to sound like others when she has always probably been this way, but had to suppress it in public to please all you stereotyping, “saints”, “who has never cursed”, drank, or worn nothing but long sleeves and long skirts. Beyoncé is as real and human as it gets! And if you did more homework, this album has always been who she was…except now she knows how it feels gaining all the pregnancy weight and feelings of not feeling sexy after giving birth, then working to get her body back, and that feeling of wanting to rub it in those women who doubted she could or would do it, and nothing like feeling sexy and confident again for your husband. Every woman’s thoughts after their first child is what she put on this CD. And it’s a CD made for married couples if you ask me,! I’m glad to see her let her hair down finally bc a woman coming from 3rd Ward of Houston,Tx also know Beyoncé is finally able to be free and be herself and not put in this BOX that’s has only ONE commercialized robotic look and feel with every song sounding the same after a certain period.
Thank you Beyoncé for being so brave and strong and doing something a lot of artist would be to afraid to do, but now you’ve opened up a lot eyes and when you are catering to your true ride or die fans, all these negative comments just falls by the wayside and better off without these people who rather sew negative seeds when you don’t fit in there box or sing something not related to their situation like you are their personal jukebox. I’m thankful to have this opportunity to catch up to everyone else with your music and life,! You are love and I see it and hear it in your music!
