Beyonce Grows Up In New Music Video


Beyonce's latest video for her hit "Run The World (Girls)" is out and I admit I like it. I feel like we are seeing a more grown up side of her. Sure, she's done the sexy thing before with "Sasha Fierce" but I think there is more female power to this Beyonce. In this video she's flipping off the camera and grabbing her boobs. All things I never thought Beyonce would do. Also, it was directed by the director of Water For Elephants. I guess that explains all the beautiful imagery and animals? No elephants though.

Watch the video:


I liked how although Beyonce is a beautiful girl, she didn't rely on that with this video. She used her  sexuality to freeze the military guys showing that women should feel empowered and sexy. I liked all the choreography in the sand (were those the furry Alexander Wang shoes I spotted?). She wore designers like Roberto Cavalli, Alexander McQueen, Gareth Pugh and Pucci (Source). Go B!

People may dislike Gaga, but I think she's been driving a lot of creativity in the pop world. I don't think Beyonce would have ever made a video like this if Gaga wasn't around. I do wish she would lose the blonde weave though.

What do you think of the video?

  1. LOVE THE VIDEO!!! I have been seeing a whole bunch of write-ups on it but haven't watched it till stopping by you. IT IS FANTASTIC! Can't hate on B!!! There was this article in Rolling Stone I think last year about the new women pop stars including, lady gaga, m.i.a, lykke li, and santigold.It was on how women are acting powerful, taking more musical risks, and being sexual not per se to be sexy or appealing but more because they feel friggin hot and they're owning it, I think this video is a really great example of that trend.

  2. I had heard about this video shoot and have been waiting for it to come out. I am not one who keeps up with music all that much and usually don't hear anything new until it is out on the radio. I LOVE this song and the video. It is short of ironic because just today at lunch one of my male coworkers was talking about how you can say anything you want about Lady Gaga but what you can't say is that she is a weak woman. He went on to further say how strong woman are more appealing then weak because they own their choices and take responsibility. He is a super cool guy to begin with but that statement made him move up several places in my book. Go B!! I can't wait to see how my students react to this video and song;)

    Sincerely,

    Julie
