It saddens me that a superstar, beloved by millions, seemingly happily married to a mogul, mother of a healthy child and friend of the first couple is still embarrassed by her natural hair.
Do you make the assumption that white women who get perms and bleach their dark hair are embarrassed by it?
I don't think that she is embarrassed by her hair at all. I think that she is trying to protect it. Heat, chemicals, sweat and everyday wear and tear are hard enough on your hair but black people have super fragile hair and she is probably keeping it under a weave or a wig so that it won't fall out or break off so much. Stage lights and chemicals, flat irons and curling irons can wreak havoc on your hair. Having to put heat on your hair every day only to go on stage and have hot lights burning into it. Sweating and tangling it up with all of those dance moves. She has taken pics with different hair styles, fro's included so I don't think that she is not proud. Plus, she is all about that long and flowy, glamorous look. That just seems to be what she likes on stage especially. She likes dancing around and whipping her hair like she is Tina Turner.
Maybe she thinks this looks better? You know, like a PERSON who changes her hair?
Separately; white/black has nothing to do with it, in my view.
Fun fact: many pregnant women develop something called melasma gravidarum which is darkened skin... so, you may be on to something there cowgirl!
She looks more and more like a white woman every time I see a new photo of her
Shedoesn't even look like a light-skinned black woman anymore. She looks like a sort of tan white woman.
Me thinks she fell victim to the Lil' Kim syndrome.
Have you seen those Pepsi billboards? Every single time I come up on them, I swear it's Christina Aguilera. It isn't until you get really close that it hits you, holy shit that's Beyonce and not some white woman with really tan legs.
OMG that second one from the left screams Christina!
semi-related, spotify recs are getting creepily specific:
At this point, Spotify just likes to fuck with me.
Yeah. Their algorithm and suggestion copy are terrible. I started editing them last week when I was bored.
The old pic shows the change in her nose.
I was drinking tea from a half gallon container when I got to your comment; was this close to spitting tea all over my keyboard and monitor. Very funny! :)
