Drunk in Love: What Does This Video Say About Male Sexuality?

I wrote a post earlier this year in reference to Beyonce's Super Bowl halftime show in which I asked all kinds of questions about whether her performance was empowering or objectifying. I recalled that post today when I saw a news item about her new video, Drunk in Love, which features her husband, Jay-Z. Out of curiosity about how she is presenting herself now, I decided to watch....more

I will admit that I have been a rather casual fan of the internationally-adored pop culture icon, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter,  even though she has been dominating the music industry for at least a decade.  There is no denying that she is talented, loves her family, makes smart business moves, and is a beautiful person inside and out. My biggest issue was that she had a voice I felt she simply was not using to its fullest potential, both in sound and influence. ...more

On Repeat: Songs I Listen to Again and Again

Every time. Every single time. Perhaps because they're beautiful, meaningful, perfect. Or because they speak to my heart.
