Beyonce: I’ve Earned The Right to Express My Sensuality

downloadBy: Krystle Crossman

As part of her new album release, Beyoncé has also released a documentary about her personal life and her career. She released the documentary in installments and in the fifth one she is about as emotionally raw as she has ever been. She spoke about how her image in the music industry has held her back from being who she really wants to be and how she wants her music to portray her.

When she started with girl group, Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé was just nine years old. She was fifteen when they put out their first album. She knew that she had to portray a certain image to be a role model for the younger crowd that the group was marketed for. Bey said that she felt that held her back and stifled her. She says that now she feels that it is time for her to finally be herself and that she has earned that right after so many years.

Nomalanga Mhlauli-Moses, a social commentator and life strategist for women said: “I think I’ve made it clear that I’m not a Bey fan so this is not a gushing fan worshiping her idol but I will say this. I LOVE that she has let her sensual self out and has also become vocal about what being a woman means to her.

What I appreciate about her message is that she is saying that a woman is multi-faceted. Being $exy or beautiful doesn’t mean you’re a dumb bubble-head anymore than being intelligent and level headed means you don’t have a softer or more sensual side.

I feel like we live in a world which tries to box women into one dimensional categories; “are you smart and intelligent or are you beautiful and sexy?” Guess what, women can be ALLLL that! Also, Bey is not encouraging this destructive sexual “liberation” which tells women to go hopping from one man’s bed to another and pick up babies and STDs along the way. I love it!”

Beyoncé finally feels free to express herself in a way that she truly believes in. She was ready to put this album together and feels that it’s the most real album she has ever done.

What do you think? Is she right; has she earned her right to be $exy and sensual?

  1. This is without a doubt, my most adored singer in the music industry. I don’t want to make any judgements about this new album which is filled with explicit “Sensual” lyrics, but what will Blue Ivy think of this when she is old enough to understand “sensuality”. Will she be mocked by her peers, will she find it strange for mommy to be exposing her intimate encounters with her daddy in music form, will she follow after mommy at a young age, will her future guy or female friends look at her with respect and dignity and not judge her based on mommy’s work? These are a few questions that I think should be taken into consideration when our women and young ladies want to use the entertainment industry as a platform to promote or feel that they have earned the right to share their “sensuality”. (Oh yeah, great word choice: Sensual).
    Thank goodness I still have her classics to lean back on. She is the most brilliant black female entreprenuer or chief executive ever ; only second to Oprah in the U.S. So her business saavy can not be ignored and this is the best part that Blue Ivy can use to defend her mommy.

  2. Brother Regie,

    Her daughter will see the evolution of woman. We’re multidimensional: classy, sexy, intelligent, risk-taking, daring, spiritual, nurturing and more! Who would be embarrassed to be a part of a legacy of women who are independent and strong, but still sensual and sexy?

    I think everything Beyonce has done in her career has been focused, well thought out and intentional. Her daughter would be proud. Anyone who would mock success isn’t deserving of the attention needed to hear his or her ignorance in the first place.

      • Moon Priestess..

        The Carters are involved in a lot of Media hype right now because their “PRIDE” is on the hot-plate, and I truly believe this is Jay-Bird’s way of saying “F*K Everybody” who does not supply my needs fall down and worship me. They will never ever be Micheal Jackson, Snoop Dog, Biggy or Tu-Pac, because they are only Magic Mountain vrs Disneyland, there is no competition at all. The saddest thing about this whole situation is our young girls and daughters are all being guided by this demonic Bullshyt… Lord Help Us All Escape These Evil Dark Days…

  3. Moon Priestess on

    First we need to understand that there is a difference between the expression of sensuality and SEXUALITY something the later is sold by the entertainment industry.

    Beyonce is no different than other “artist” that is marketed to “come out of some kind of closet” in their music. I don’t understand how she’s not been “sexual” before? Look at the booty slinging moves she puts on stage, in videos, with her butt all out and cleavage showing for days. Has she not been portrayed as a “sexual” being in her marketing for whatever album she puts out? The answer is YES! Nothing has changed except now she wants to “cut loose” with that portrayal and take it to another level. Let her sex be all out for everyone to see. She calls rolling around on a beach humping her butt up and down and signing about “raining on some hovahs wood” SENSUAL? That’s PRIVATE! I personally can’t stand Beyonce or JayZ simply because they are industry made, industry promoted marriage (no real love) and big pimpin everyone who likes either of these industry whores into a mindless sleep while they sit in board room meetings with attorneys and PR marketing the next album that is gonna start controversy, sell more CD’s and sell out concerts, for the record companies and for themselves.

    Sorry I don’t need “BEY” teaching me about sensuality, I’ve got more of that in my little finger than she has in her entire body or soul, I don’t need her to teach me or my child about sexuality (wasn’t she the chick that made the song “put a ring on it?) I don’t need Beyonce to liberate “all women” and the media pigs about the power of a woman! It’s all hype! It’s all about cash. If it weren’t she’d be doing her thing in a respectable manner now that she’s a mother and go sit her behind down and keep what she does with Jay Z (or so we can assume) in their bedroom and not in the public eye.

    Hmmm wonder if she’s trying to out do Madonna or Kim and Kayne??? Check out the video where she’s rolling around on the beach, how she interacts with JayZ and then look at that ridiculous video with Kim K and Kayne, another pair of industry whores. Look a like to me don’t you think?

    Don’t be fooled by the hype cause that’s all it is.

    Next!

    • Moon, I know that’s right, you hit the nail on the head, stardom has surely taken over. Remember how private she “USED” to be saying in her interview with Oprah how she keeps her private life and professional life separate???

    • Moon Priestess…

      You are so right on spot about every word you said about Beyonce and Jay-bird… Jay-z has no respect for his wife, all I saw in the video is gangsta money man and his HOE / aka:Cucubine rolling around on the beach in the dark like a dark-lord alluring SNAKE..
      I always say there is more to Beyonce and Jay-Bird then meets the eye, and one day that serpent is going to reveal its self to everybody, and for many its going to be too late because they’ve already been captured and lured in. Jay-Bird /aka: Satan himself is just sitting back laughing the old LOL… They are both walking around with their brains blown out and don’t even know it yet, just f*kn lost and blind man….wow! Better them then me and mind.
      I’m just waiting to see God roll-up in this whole situation especially now since that SLEEZY old heffa-cat took a slezzy photo in front of the “LAST SUPPER”… Stupid a$$ bytch is real bold and disrespectful…

  4. Brother Regie,

    I couldn’t agree with you more, I was just commenting on another blog about Bey’coming of age? I questioned was she going through a growth spurt into womanhood or a sudden surge of liberation or freefall of self revelation? ?? She is certainly is a talent and brand of her own making in a category all by herself, BRAVO to Bey. I was thinking some of the same you spoke about being a mother and wife. I think now being a mother raising a daughter who will look up to her as she grows and develop. It just seems she has Turned Up from 1 to 100 with the Bitches bow down and now the explicit exposure at a time of her daughter’s formidable yrs? Considering the best interests of your family is far more important. She certainly has proven herself as an entertainer hands down, just seems a bit extreme with all sex, nudity and lyrics. .. IMO.

    Sensuality does not necessarily equate to exposing what’s meant for your husband and the world’s imagination, Just Sayin, I don’t get it but then again I don’t buy her music..Kudos to her and all her success which is something you can’t deny or take away from her. Hard work definitely pays off….

    • MY DEAR BELOVED SISTER SHARON:
      YOU HAVE SAID THE THINGS THAT ONLY A SISTER NEEDS TO SAY TO ANOTHER SISTER. IT IS AND WILL NEVER BE MY DUTY TO JUDGE THE BLACK WOMAN. BUT, AS LONG AS I LIVE, I MUST TELL THE TRUTH. I AGREE WITH NOT SOME OF WHAT YOU SAID, BUT ALL OF IT. SHE WENT FROM SASHA FIERCE TO THE DARKER SIDE OF THE INDUSTRY. NEVERTHELESS, JUDGEMENT HAS COME TO AMERICA BECAUSE MANY OF OUR WOMEN HAVE DEGENERATED TO ANOTHER FORM OF WORKING FOR THE REBELIOUS AND EVIL ONE. HOW IN THE HELL COULD “HOVAH” LET HIS WIFE AND MOTHER OF HIS CHILD MAKE LYRICS OF SUCH AND PERFORM ON STAGE WITH HER WHILE SHE IS HALF OR 3/4 NUDE AND HE IS FULLY DRESSED. THERE SOMETHING STRANGER THAN STRANGE ABOUT THAT KIND OF RELATIONSHIP. SO I BLAME HIS EVIL INTENTIONS, AND TO THANK HE ADOPTED THE NICKNAME “HOVAH”. PURE MOCKERY OF THAT GOD.SEX SELLS AND IT IS THE OLDEST PROFESSION KNOWN TO MAN. LET’S SEE WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT BEYONCE’S BEHAVIOR AND BASE HER DOOM ON THAT. EZEKIEL THE WHOLE 16TH CHAPTER IS BEARING WITNESS TO BEYONCE’S TRANSFORMATION. IT READS:
      Ezekiel 16
      New International Version (NIV)
      Jerusalem as an Adulterous Wife

      16 The word of the Lord came to me: 2 “Son of man, confront Jerusalem with her detestable practices 3 and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says to Jerusalem: Your ancestry and birth were in the land of the Canaanites; your father was an Amorite and your mother a Hittite. 4 On the day you were born your cord was not cut, nor were you washed with water to make you clean, nor were you rubbed with salt or wrapped in cloths. 5 No one looked on you with pity or had compassion enough to do any of these things for you. Rather, you were thrown out into the open field, for on the day you were born you were despised.

      6 “‘Then I passed by and saw you kicking about in your blood, and as you lay there in your blood I said to you, “Live!”[a] 7 I made you grow like a plant of the field. You grew and developed and entered puberty. Your breasts had formed and your hair had grown, yet you were stark naked.

      8 “‘Later I passed by, and when I looked at you and saw that you were old enough for love, I spread the corner of my garment over you and covered your naked body. I gave you my solemn oath and entered into a covenant with you, declares the Sovereign Lord, and you became mine.

      9 “‘I bathed you with water and washed the blood from you and put ointments on you. 10 I clothed you with an embroidered dress and put sandals of fine leather on you. I dressed you in fine linen and covered you with costly garments. 11 I adorned you with jewelry: I put bracelets on your arms and a necklace around your neck, 12 and I put a ring on your nose, earrings on your ears and a beautiful crown on your head. 13 So you were adorned with gold and silver; your clothes were of fine linen and costly fabric and embroidered cloth. Your food was honey, olive oil and the finest flour. You became very beautiful and rose to be a queen. 14 And your fame spread among the nations on account of your beauty, because the splendor I had given you made your beauty perfect, declares the Sovereign Lord.

      15 “‘But you trusted in your beauty and used your fame to become a prostitute. You lavished your favors on anyone who passed by and your beauty became his. 16 You took some of your garments to make gaudy high places, where you carried on your prostitution. You went to him, and he possessed your beauty.[b] 17 You also took the fine jewelry I gave you, the jewelry made of my gold and silver, and you made for yourself male idols and engaged in prostitution with them. 18 And you took your embroidered clothes to put on them, and you offered my oil and incense before them. 19 Also the food I provided for you—the flour, olive oil and honey I gave you to eat—you offered as fragrant incense before them. That is what happened, declares the Sovereign Lord.

      20 “‘And you took your sons and daughters whom you bore to me and sacrificed them as food to the idols. Was your prostitution not enough? 21 You slaughtered my children and sacrificed them to the idols. 22 In all your detestable practices and your prostitution you did not remember the days of your youth, when you were naked and bare, kicking about in your blood.

      23 “‘Woe! Woe to you, declares the Sovereign Lord. In addition to all your other wickedness, 24 you built a mound for yourself and made a lofty shrine in every public square. 25 At every street corner you built your lofty shrines and degraded your beauty, spreading your legs with increasing promiscuity to anyone who passed by. 26 You engaged in prostitution with the Egyptians, your neighbors with large genitals, and aroused my anger with your increasing promiscuity. 27 So I stretched out my hand against you and reduced your territory; I gave you over to the greed of your enemies, the daughters of the Philistines, who were shocked by your lewd conduct. 28 You engaged in prostitution with the Assyrians too, because you were insatiable; and even after that, you still were not satisfied. 29 Then you increased your promiscuity to include Babylonia,[c] a land of merchants, but even with this you were not satisfied.

      30 “‘I am filled with fury against you,[d] declares the Sovereign Lord, when you do all these things, acting like a brazen prostitute! 31 When you built your mounds at every street corner and made your lofty shrines in every public square, you were unlike a prostitute, because you scorned payment.

      32 “‘You adulterous wife! You prefer strangers to your own husband! 33 All prostitutes receive gifts, but you give gifts to all your lovers, bribing them to come to you from everywhere for your illicit favors. 34 So in your prostitution you are the opposite of others; no one runs after you for your favors. You are the very opposite, for you give payment and none is given to you.

      35 “‘Therefore, you prostitute, hear the word of the Lord! 36 This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Because you poured out your lust and exposed your naked body in your promiscuity with your lovers, and because of all your detestable idols, and because you gave them your children’s blood, 37 therefore I am going to gather all your lovers, with whom you found pleasure, those you loved as well as those you hated. I will gather them against you from all around and will strip you in front of them, and they will see you stark naked. 38 I will sentence you to the punishment of women who commit adultery and who shed blood; I will bring on you the blood vengeance of my wrath and jealous anger. 39 Then I will deliver you into the hands of your lovers, and they will tear down your mounds and destroy your lofty shrines. They will strip you of your clothes and take your fine jewelry and leave you stark naked. 40 They will bring a mob against you, who will stone you and hack you to pieces with their swords. 41 They will burn down your houses and inflict punishment on you in the sight of many women. I will put a stop to your prostitution, and you will no longer pay your lovers. 42 Then my wrath against you will subside and my jealous anger will turn away from you; I will be calm and no longer angry.

      43 “‘Because you did not remember the days of your youth but enraged me with all these things, I will surely bring down on your head what you have done, declares the Sovereign Lord. Did you not add lewdness to all your other detestable practices?

      44 “‘Everyone who quotes proverbs will quote this proverb about you: “Like mother, like daughter.” 45 You are a true daughter of your mother, who despised her husband and her children; and you are a true sister of your sisters, who despised their husbands and their children. Your mother was a Hittite and your father an Amorite. 46 Your older sister was Samaria, who lived to the north of you with her daughters; and your younger sister, who lived to the south of you with her daughters, was Sodom. 47 You not only followed their ways and copied their detestable practices, but in all your ways you soon became more depraved than they. 48 As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, your sister Sodom and her daughters never did what you and your daughters have done.

      49 “‘Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. 50 They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen. 51 Samaria did not commit half the sins you did. You have done more detestable things than they, and have made your sisters seem righteous by all these things you have done. 52 Bear your disgrace, for you have furnished some justification for your sisters. Because your sins were more vile than theirs, they appear more righteous than you. So then, be ashamed and bear your disgrace, for you have made your sisters appear righteous.

      53 “‘However, I will restore the fortunes of Sodom and her daughters and of Samaria and her daughters, and your fortunes along with them, 54 so that you may bear your disgrace and be ashamed of all you have done in giving them comfort. 55 And your sisters, Sodom with her daughters and Samaria with her daughters, will return to what they were before; and you and your daughters will return to what you were before. 56 You would not even mention your sister Sodom in the day of your pride, 57 before your wickedness was uncovered. Even so, you are now scorned by the daughters of Edom[e] and all her neighbors and the daughters of the Philistines—all those around you who despise you. 58 You will bear the consequences of your lewdness and your detestable practices, declares the Lord.

      59 “‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will deal with you as you deserve, because you have despised my oath by breaking the covenant. 60 Yet I will remember the covenant I made with you in the days of your youth, and I will establish an everlasting covenant with you. 61 Then you will remember your ways and be ashamed when you receive your sisters, both those who are older than you and those who are younger. I will give them to you as daughters, but not on the basis of my covenant with you. 62 So I will establish my covenant with you, and you will know that I am the Lord. 63 Then, when I make atonement for you for all you have done, you will remember and be ashamed and never again open your mouth because of your humiliation, declares the Sovereign Lord.’”

  5. Hasn’t she always exposes her sexuality? What is the difference. Some things are common in my opinion. As a black woman im proud of her but as a woman she is no less a las Vegas stripper… jmo…nit a fan of she or the husband yet im am happy they are happy.
    Just hope this doesn’t come back to bite her where she believes dogs ought to bow to her.
    That’s a whole other story in its self.

  6. Yall need to worry about your own kids and stop worrying about blue ivy she has a mommy and daddy who love her….72% of black kids born to single black mothers and many of those sperm donors didnt stick around. All the mothers of THOSE kids would do well to focus on them..blue ivy has a daddy.

    • God is Our Father according to Jesus and any one that puts his wife in front of zillions 3/4ths nude, while he is fully dressed is a shame. But I understand why you feel the way you do. Read this and see what is prophesied for this type of conduct:

      The Universe was created based on science and mathematics: 1914 (end of satan having complete rulership and Inception of World War II) – 2014 = a 100 year grace period for us to totally submit our will to do the will of The Creator of The Heavens and Earth and all that is in between. The zeros in computer language equates to falsehood and the 1 is truth, which means we can drop the two zeros and only deal with the 1 true God of the Universe and His Christ. When you use the conjuction and in computer language, one without the other makes it an illegitimate statement or argument. So Christ and God will bring in Divine judgement with Christ carrying out the execution. 1914 = 15 or 6(#ofthebeast/man according to Revelation) 2014 = 7.The year of the wheels on the Mother Ship or Mother plane, and the last period of time God layed the foundation of this 6,000 year period in which the caucasian has ruled with the depths of wickedness and shed bled everywhere he has been. In fact, He (God) rested on the 7th day. So that means that Christ is executing his right hand of judgement with and by the permission of God. Keep paying attention to the weather. These record breaking frigid temperatures, typhoons, earthquakes in diverse places, hail the size of bowling balls, cancellations of flights, interruptions of sport and play, the exposition of satan or the son of perdition, kidnapping of our children (amber alerts), the separation from the wheat and the tear, men and women seeing visions and prophesying, famine, pestilence, wars and rumors of wars, satan’s kingdom divided against itself (democrat vs republican), men lusting after men as they should for a woman and vice-versa, children being disobedient to parents and no respect for authority, shepards feeding themselves and not the flock, depression, anxiety, increase in strokes, sightings of so-called UFO’s, jail as a form of modern day servitude slavery, spiritual wickedness in high places, degeneration and disrespect of the woman, injustice, backbiting, slander, divorce, hopelessness, the revealing of the mystery babylon (new york by way of the statue of liberty, the queen of england), women killing their children, and the Spirit of Truth which will lead us into all Truths by destroying and busting out the brains of falsehood, are just some confirmations of the year(s) that Christ is taking his rightful place at the right hand of Our Father to execute his will with the help of the 144,000 chosen angels of God and a select few of the many that were called; but only the few that have been chosen. By the way, these are just signs of the destruction to come to this Earth. Christ will use America as an example of his power, because rather you still disbelieve that 911 was an inside job that was based on political purposes (oil and a war machine that brought and still is bringing huge profits to its investors), because no one else can penetrate the U.S.A. or Sodom and Gommarah or the House of Israel and Pharoah(s). 2014 is not the end of the world, but
      based on the weather alone, God is showing you that Christ is building up the Army of the righteous to destroy satan and his agents, once and for all.
      Which side will we be on. There is only two options: continued rebellion or entire submission.
      “No nation can rise higher than its woman, so the Co-creator of the Universe (Goddessess ) has a special change to make. Put on the new woman.God spoke to Son of Man if you fail to do so. These are the words spoken to Ezekiel in Chapter 16:

      Thank you for reading and may God’s peace be on you eternally with the state and mindset of paradise on Earth. Remember: “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and its righteousness, and everything else will be added unto you”.

    THIS COMMENT ABOUT A WOMANS SEXUALITY DOES NOT MAKE SENSE AT ALL AND SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED. WE ALL KNOW WHAT A WOMAN IS AND WHAT A MAN IS, BUT HE REAL PROBLEM IS WHEN SOME PEOPLE TRY TO MAKE RTHEMSELVES INTO WOMEN AND THEY KNOW THEY ARE MEN AND VICE VERSA.. OK>> IN A NUTSHELL THATS IT.. WE ARE ALL HUMAN BEINGS AND GOD MADE US THAT WAY..OK?? SO BE HAPPY TO BE ALIVE AND START LIVING.. OK?. LOL AND BEST WISHES FOR ALL… KWANZA ABDUL-KHALIQ…

    • LMBO…. Really sad huh!!! Bey and Jay have lost their [email protected] minds wow!!! and the musical lyrics with a middle-eastern twang and a nude Beyonce is an INSULT to the middle-eastern women. They do not exploit their bodies like that. The Carter’s family Pride has been touched / activated lol… this is their way of flipping-off and fighting back against people who don’t approve of their entertainment ethics, its very very obvious, and its really sad because they’ve jumped from the skillet into the frying pan… Who is worse!!! Them or L.A. Preachers…LMBO

    • Brother Abdul-Khaliq:
      Abdul-Khaliq which is a masculine name in Islam that means servant of The Creator, Allah which are two of Allah’s 99 names. So to hear your response is quite suprising. It sounds like you approve of the dress and lyrics of this album. Your name is Muslim and muslim women do not allow themselves to be exploited like that. Especially the Black Muslim organization in the U.S. called The Nation of Islam or the M.G.T. (Muslims Girls In Training) Heaven lies at the foot of the Black Woman, so if we do not protect our women, which could be your daughters, mothers, sisters, female cousins or woman companions, or even your female “idols”, which Islam shuns against idol worshipping as Polytheistic, who in the hell will? But,I humbly respect your opinion. I know you think men should not respond, but I chose to subscribe to this site because of my two daughters. I like to forward information on to them to toggle their minds and expand their level of understanding the role that they should play as two young black women. They get to see what people say about the womanly and manly topics on this site. So my Brother, for you to say that us men do not have a responsibility to make non other than a comment on what we or I feel is worthy of a comment or reply home, is astonishing. But wearing a because you carry a Muslim title, I was expecting you to add a little more of what All Mighty God would say about this entertainment industry and how our women are continually exploited. Take time to listen to the behind the scenes recording of Beyonce’s song: Rocket. Notice how men are encouraging and complimenting her on this behavior and how although the caucasians comments seem positive, it is really mockery. Justin Timberlake (a white boy, who think he is black) said that she freed all women from jail with this song. What the hell is this white boy subliminally refering to. What do caucasians know about the plight of the black woman and her Divine Value and Nature? They know but they don’t care, she is still a nigger, maybe a successful nigger, but a nigger indeed. When their women do this (Miley Cirus, Kim Kardashian, e.tc), they cringe and speak out against it. It is clear that she is under a spell of some sort and she mentions that in the video. Her voice is outstanding and her saavy business skills are unparalled to any successful black women I have ever witnessed, but that does not mean that I can endorse “crackers” explaining or mocking her in the name of “Musical Art”. We are the originators of the Universe and all art finds its foundations in the black Asiatic Goddess and Gods of the Universe. They are a bunch of Johnny come late race of devils.
      Well here is the video to the post in her own words and tell me if this is not exploitation at its finest. May Allah continue to shed you with Peace, light and understanding, ASA sir.
      After hearing the song or albulm I advise you to put the Quran down for a minute and read Ezekiel Chapter 16 or look at my earlier post and you will find that complete 16th chapter in it.
      Well here it is, listen at your own risk…:

    • I just want to add that my so-called righteousness is as filthy rags in the sight of the creator. My holiness is not absolute and I have to polish the very essence of my soul by doing what I believe is the word of God speaking to and through me. One day, we all will be clear of the Demons that are inside each and every one of us. We just need an exorcism similar to what Jesus was and is doing. For example, he called the demons out and they questioned him as to why he was persecuting them before their time. He answered, it is time and cast them or excorsised them into the swine (pork or pig),which eventually threw themselves over the cliff.

  8. Of course she has! The sexual revolution is upon us and any woman who is motivated by Beyonce’s production, should take this moment to own her sensuality.
