On April 17, 2019, Beyoncé gave humanity the greatest gift ever! That gift was HOMECOMING!
Homecoming is a musical experience, concert, performance, whatever we are calling it by the Queen herself.
The documentary features Beyoncé performing at the 2018’s Coachella last summer.
It featured her struggles, her diet, the motivation and behind the scenes of Homecoming itself. I think it’s safe to say we all can learn a thing or two from the triple threat.
Beyoncé was the first African American woman to headline Coachella which was crazy to her. She had to go all out for that specific reason, to make it an experience for the rest of the world.
The first thing is first, in the film, she talked about her challenging, unexpected pregnancy with twins.
Beyonce knew she was headlining Coachella which made her more motivated to lose the baby weight. Eight months before her emergency C-section, she put herself on a diet.
The Beyonce Diet:
“No bread, no carbs, no sugar, no dairy, no meat, no fish, no alcohol…,” Beyoncé said. Then after explaining her diet, she said, “I’m HUNGRY.”
Of course, you would be Bey, your breastfeeding two newly born twins and you aren’t anything but apples? I don’t know how she did, but hey that body was snatched during Beychella.
Next, in the film, she talks about balancing a work day with being a mother and a wife.
Did you notice something in the film though? Maybe how everyone was BLACK. Beyoncé said she wanted it to be like an HBCU experience because she never got that. “Destiny’s Child was my HBCU experience.”
From her dancers, live orchestra, to back up singers, everyone was black and mimicked exceptional results at the performance. With only training with the orchestra for four months just to get it right, I think we all can agree Beyoncé DID THAT!
Also, she brought out her sister, Solange Knowles, to the show, Destiny’s Child had an angelic moment, and the Les Twins made several appearances.
Not only did Beyonce put on a performance for a lifetime she created a cultural conversation. This reminds me of the time of her Superbowl performance! Black dominance within the entertainment world is something the children of the next generation need to see especially with all that is going on around the world.
Thank you for everything Beyonce, and this generation is WOKE.
Here is some fashion from the documentary!
