One of HelloGiggles' 50 Most Anticipated Books of 2019From the editor of the bestselling anthology The Meaning of Michelle a celebration of one of the greatest stars of our timeThe Ultimate Beyonce CollectibleBeyoncé Her name conjures than music it has come to be synonymous with beauty glamour power creativity love and romance Her performances are legendary her album releases events She is not even forty but she has already rewritten the Beyoncé playbook than half a dozen times She is consistently provocative political and surprising As a solo artist she has sold than 100 million records She has won 22 Grammys and is the most nominated woman artist in the history of Grammy awards Her 2018 performance at Coachella wowed the world The New York Times wrote There' Beyonc Giselle of House Knowles First of her name Snatcher of Edges Killer of Stages Citizen of Creole Wonderland Legendary Black Girl ueen 4 stars This was not only an ode to Beyonc but to blackness and what it means to be black as well It s an interesting look at her career and her impact in music As a huge Bey fan since the 90s I enjoyed it thoroughly and I enjoyed a lot of the essays in this Some of them felt out of place a bit but for the most part they were good Some were just love letters to Bey while others were studies and dissertations which was cool I enjoyed seeing how she s effected and impacted different peoples lives everyone had a different story to tell and had a different moment that made them Beyonc fans but it was all so relatable The only thing I will say is that I can t stand this narrative that Bey is better or has surpassed Michael Jackson who I am also a huge fan of and there was a lot of that in here It just seems disrespectful to his legacy and it s unfair to Bey He was one of her idols so to say that isn t doing either of them any favors It s possible for them both to be great in their own rights because they are MJ was in his own lane just like Bey is in her own laneOther than that this was still an interesting read and I highly recommend it
