Like Beyonce had ever *ever* set foot in a trailer park before this video. I mean, I guess they had a good time? But it’s just something funky about a mega-rich person heading out to shoot a video and it’s like “oh hey, find me a bunch of poor people to put in this video so I can look ‘real’ and ‘down.’ Also, let’s shoot it where they live.”
Or maybe living a couple of miles from Occupy Wall Street has me full of shade and sideeye for the superrich. Where was Andre 3000 for this shoot? I liked his verse on the track, but I don’t know where he ran off to when the video came around. Probably somewhere having sense enough not to be involved with this.
Either way, Beyonce…..girl you can keep this mess. And all them bad fashions.
At least you didn’t copy anybody.
(But it does look like the 7 hours before Fiona Apple “Criminal”)
