The confession/ Beyoncé gets personal

Almost 364 days after her social media attach with her self-titled album, Beyoncé debuted an 11-minute short film of black-and-white self righteous beauty. “Yours and Mine” is a promotional tool for her recently released “Platinum Edition” yet at the same time is her most inspirational video as of yet. “I sometimes wish I could just be anonymous and walk down a street just like everyone else,” we hear Beyonce say. “Before I was famous, I was the girl on the hill with the guitar. I was the girl that just wanted a beautiful view of the beach. And now that I’m famous, it’s really, really difficult to do simple things. I think it’s the hardest thing to give up.”

“When you’re famous, no one looks at you like a human anymore” she continues. “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.” Beyoncé reflects, “I grew up with a lot of conflicts and traumas, and I’ve been through a lot, just like everyone else. My escape was always music, and I’m so lucky that’s my job.”

She later observes, “I feel like my body is borrowed, and this life is very temporary… We don’t value ourselves enough. Especially young people, don’t really appreciate how brilliant our bodies are. I’ve always been very specific and very choosy about what I do with my body, and who I want to share that with.”

Her thoughts on feminism, marriage, happiness and living with fame are spliced between shots from her videos whilst she is speaking her mind in a clear and unpredicted way. “There’s nothing more exciting than having a witness to your own life. You need something real in order for any of this stuff to matter” she says on her rumor-filled marriage with Jay Z. “It’s OK to depend on someone,” Beyoncé continued.

“It’s actually what we’re supposed to do – we’re supposed to depend on each other. And when you find the person that you trust and you love and you feel is going to respect you and take all the s–t that 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.”

“Men and women balance each other out, and we have to get to a point where we’re comfortable appreciating each other,” she adds, cementing her status as a powerful feminist figure of our times.

“I was always afraid of that word because people put so much on it, when honestly, it’s really simple: it’s someone that believes in equality for men and women” she says exposing the human being she really is. “One thing that’s for sure: the love I have – music, my husband, for my child – is something that will last far beyond my life,” Beyoncé concludes, with the final shot of her walking on the beach with daughter Blue Ivy.
