Beyonce’s “Why Don’t You Love Me?”

Kara, you told me about this video (bless you!) but I know you’re too swamped with grad school to post it yet so I’m going to throw it on here and let you analyze it later. I say that because I feel like I don’t have the exegetical skills to do it justice, whereas you are in academia and so can take on this immense deconstruction challenge. It is just incredible and I think very post-’90s. All glamour and retro and posing. If the ’90s were both Earnest and Arch, maybe thanks to Beyonce the ’10s are both Wry and Smokin’ Hot.

Here are a couple of stills I screen-grabbed for people who need a little more prodding to watch the video:

    Contrast this with 90s Hot 100 hit “Bills, Bills, Bills”

    Why don’t you talk about beyonce’s long time transformation into a white blonde woman, which culminates in this video?
