We’ve come to expect the unexpected from Beyoncé these days, so we weren’t surprised when we saw she’d popped another short film online, aptly named ‘Yours And Mine.’
The emotional short film is one gorgeous ode to husband Jay-Z, with Bey revealing her darkest secrets about her marriage and how Jay is her lobster.
The entire eleven minutes is basically Bey, 33, pouring out all her emotions and feelings to the world about growing up, being in love and getting married, and how fame has changed her.
Treating fans to an incredibly personal look into her life, Bey even reveals traumas of her childhood throughout.
Giving her own views on marriage, she admitted: “People feel like they lose something when they get married, but it doesn’t have to be that way. There is nothing more exciting than having a witness to your life.”
“I always consider myself a feminist, although I was always afraid of that word because people put so much on it, when honestly it just means you believe in equality for men and women. Men and women balance each other out and we have to get to a point where we appreciate each other.”
In the heartwarming homage, Bey goes on to talk about the “empathy” she has for men and “the pressures they go through,” focusing on “the cultures that have been created, especially for African American men.”
She then goes on to reveal her empathy is reflected for the pressures women go through, culminating in describing herself as a “humanist.”
She added: “If I accomplished all of these things [her dreams] and had no one to share it with, it would mean nothing. You need something real in order for this stuff to matter. You have to have something that is forever. Something that is invisible.” AKA, LOVE. <3
Spending the love amongst the Bey Hive, the Crazy in Love singer encouraged positivity by explaining that “It’s ok to depend on someone, it’s actually what we’re supposed to do. Happiness comes from you, no one else can make you happy, you make you happy.”
She added: “When you find the person that you trust and you love, and who is going to respect you and take all of the sh*t you have and turn it around and bring out the best in you, it feeds you. It is the most powerful thing you can ever feel in your life.
“And one thing that’s for sure, the love I have, for music, for my husband, for my child, is something that will last far beyond my life.”
SO cute. And empowering, which is something we’ve come to know and LOVE from Beyoncé, as she puts real effort into making sure her fandom, which includes many young girls, feel inspired, brave and strong enough to stand up for something.
As well as giving us an intimate look into her marriage life, Bey also reflects on the pressures of fame during the film, admitting that sometimes it all gets too much and she justs wants to be “anonymous.”
Despite describing how she was “the girl that just wanted a beautiful view of the beach” pre-fame, and how it’s “the hardest thing to give up,” Bey explains how she keeps going, saying: “My mother always taught me to be strong and to never be a victim, never make excuses, never expect anyone else to provide for me things that I know I can provide for myself.
“I have dreams and I feel like I have a power to actually make those dreams become a reality. When you’re famous, no one looks at you as a human any more, you become the property of the public. There’s nothing real about it.
“You can’t put your finger on who I am, I can’t put my finger on who I am. I am complicated, I grew up with a lot of conflict and traumas and I’ve been through a lot, just like everyone else. My escape was always music and I’m so lucky that that’s my job.”
And thank GOD it is. Not sure we can imagine a world without any Beyoncé, actually.
Proving that she’s a total role model for her female fans, Bey also used her video platform to encourage girls to think positively about body image, revealing that it’s her childhood experiences, where she watched her mother “trying to please and make everyone comfortable,” which led her to steer away from the fear of the unknown.
She said: “It all starts with if you can look at yourself in the mirror and say ‘I can like this person’, you know? If I hadn’t gone through some of the painful experiences in my life, I would not be me. I feel like my body is borrowed and this life is very temporary.
“I watched my friend’s body deteriorate and to see somebody pass on so gracefully put everything into perspective. Especially young people, they don’t really appreciate how brilliant our bodies are. I’ve always been very, very specific and very, VERY choosey about what I do with my body and who I want to share that with.”
Basically, you NEED to watch this video, because we’ve never felt so empowered on a Friday.
ALL HAIL QUEEN BEY.
