Janet Mock on Beyoncé’s feminism.

I really appreciate everything Janet said about Beyoncé in this video clip and especially on the panel with bell hooks (which she also mentioned in this video), which I wrote about in Liberating The Black Female Body: Thoughts On The Voices Of bell, Janet, Shola and Marci. We need nuanced perspectives and ones that aren’t solely about respectability. And also, recognize that Beyoncé is still a human being even if people only recognize her as an inanimate brand, or worse.

Janet keeps it 100. Love her. (Oh and LMFAO @ Janet in the clip saying the writer needs to “have a seat” and “at one of Beyoncé’s concerts.”)
