As a noted feminist/ illuminati member/ Goddess/ walking Instagram video, Beyoncé certainly wears many hats/ veils/ body suits. In a new short film released on the one year anniversary of her surprise album release AKA Beyoncé's gift to the world, Queen Bey talks about herself a lot over copy and pasted scenes from her various music videos.
The resulting speeches on life, love, and the pursuit of hap(Bey)ness reveal that in addition to being a feminist and a cyborg, Beyoncé also inhabits various other roles/ideologies. Without further ado, we present the hodgepodge of quotable beliefs that will, for future generations, be henceforth known as the Beyoncé manifesto.
