The other title for this post was going to be “I Want Beyonce’s Body”. That’s what I told a friend a while back. I actually think I said, “I’m going to get Beyonce’s body”, to which she gave me a major side-eye. (You know who you are, and I still love you! :)) But I can understand her giving me the side-eye of life. I have a LOT of pounds on Beyonce and attaining a body that can even compare to hers may be unreachable for the regular girl that’s already a size 8. But for someone who is bigger than a size 8??? You know what? This post is not about my weight-moving on…
If you’ve read my “About Elle” page, you know I love Beyonce. I have every album she has released, including her latest “Beyonce”. I am not ashamed to admit that the visual is currently in my DVD player and the audio has been in HEAVY rotation since I bought it Christmas weekend. I definitely have my favorites, including “Superpower”, “Mine”, “Flawless”, and the bonus video “Grown Woman”. But the video that keeps me the most mesmerized is “Yonce/Partition”.
We all know that Beyonce has sex appeal. And I don’t know what it is about that darn video-the wadrobe, the movements, or just the song itself-but I can never turn away. I’ve thought of the scenario in my head. The woman has rented out this club, got some costumes, and gathered up a few of her girls to put on a show for her man. Then, when the show’s over, they (the woman and her man) go home. And I want to do that. Well, minus asking my friends-I wouldn’t want my man to fantasize about them every time we did couple stuff. But when I do get into a relationship, I want to put on a burlesque show for my dude, complete with costumes, make-up, lighting, the works! And I want to do it to “Partition”. Really, I could come up with a couple of dances to a couple of Beyonce songs. And have my man swooning. I want to be his fantasy come to life. But I need to get her body. And a man.
Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city.
