We could all learn a thing or two from Beyoncé, like being sexy isn't anything to be ashamed of... and do more squats
I know I’m a bit late to the party (like, ten years too late) but after watching Beyoncé‘s steamy performance at the Grammy Award’s this week, I’ve decided she’s my new girl crush (sorry Gwen Stefani!).
Wearing just a tight thong bodysuit and straddling a chair, before twerking on her rapper beau, mum-of-one Beyoncé, 32, performed Drunk In Love with husband Jay Z, and erm, how can I put this politely… well, it blew my tiny mind!
From the very start until the very end Beyoncé‘s routine was absolutely mesmerising. And then there was the bit where Jay Z grabbed his wife’s famous derriere. Even now, days later, I’m not embarrassed to admit I’ve caught my finger wandering around the ‘replay’ button on the YouTube clip. And despite watching it so many times I’ve lost count, I still can’t decide whether I’m more fixated with her new ombre wavy bob or her new thigh gap.
Some people took to Twitter to gob-off about how Beyoncé was a bad role model because her performance was too risqué. FFS, if there’s one thing that really rattles me, it’s people who feel the need to moan and groan about everything. I mean, even Beyonce in a tight thong bodysuit. WTF? But we, and our kids, could all learn a thing or two from her:
- She’s not ashamed to embrace her feminine powers
- She is a good role model – she’s not out there taking drugs and drinking, she’s just dancing!
- Beyonce oozes confidence and I believe that’s one of the most important things we can teach our children
- She’s a mum but that doesn’t mean she has to sit at home in her tracksuit bottoms covered in baby sick
- Her perfect bum is a reminder to us all to go to the gym and/or do more squats and stop complaining about them
Recently, Beyoncé defended her overtly-sexual performances and said: ‘I don’t have any shame about being sexual. I’m not embarrassed about it. And I don’t feel like I have to protect that side of me.’
And it seems I’m not the only one who has a bit of a girl crush on her either, she’s got President Obama‘s seal of approval. He’s said: ‘Beyoncé could not be a better role model for my girls because she carries herself with such class and poise and has so much talent.’
