15 Things We Learned from ‘Beyoncé: Life Is But a Dream’

Last night, Beyoncé offered more insight into her career and personal life in the “revealing,” self-produced HBO documentary Life Is But a Dream. It was the Stefon of documentaries: there was crying, singing, dancing, and weird Terrence Malick-style shots of trees. Bey opened up about her miscarriage, discussed her intense love and admiration for husband Jay-Z, gave us a peek at daughter Blue Ivy Carter, and talked to her computer while we wondered how she wakes up in the middle of the night with such perfect hair. While the arguments that Life Is But a Dream was a little too polished dart back and forth, we’re sharing 15 things we learned about Bey after the break. Leave us your review of the film in the comments section. … Read More

Beyoncé’s Most Feminist Moments

At least among the people we know (most of whom are admittedly indifferent to football), the halftime show at the Super Bowl generated a whole lot more excitement than the game itself. In the last few years Beyoncé has become an icon of the proportions that few pop stars these days achieve, and in no small part this is due to her willingness to use her gender as a creative tool. The argument over whether Beyoncé is a bona fide feminist or just a pop star cashing in on “girl power” has raged for years, but whatever side of the debate you land on, her message of empowerment, commitment to her craft, and control over her image and performance are impossible to undermine. In celebration of her latest feat — that flawless halftime performance in which she was backed by an all-female band — we’ve rounded up Beyoncé’s most feminist moments to date, and welcome the criticism and discussion that she always seem to elicit. … Read More

Read Beyoncé’s Handwritten Fan Letter to Michelle Obama

Those who caught Michelle Obama on The Colbert Report last night may not believe it’s possible to love the FLOTUS any more than we already do. But now Beyoncé has penned a thank-you letter to Mrs. O that endears her to us even further. In a handwritten note posted on Bey’s website, she calls the First Lady “the ULTIMATE example of a truly strong African American woman,” praising the grace with which she balances her professional life with family and proclaiming, “I am proud to have my daughter grow up in a world where she has people like you to look up to.” Fans may remember that the singer teamed up with Obama for the anti-child obesity Let’s Move! campaign, for which she released the song and video “Move Your Body.” See the letter after the jump, and find yourself powerless against the all-consuming urge to dream up some Beyoncé/Michelle superfriends fan fiction. … Read More
