Beyonce has not changed. She is the same woman that she has always been with the same morals and the same goals. Her music has not changed either, it has evolved along with her as a person. She is no longer the 21 year old girl she once was, she is a 30 year old married woman who wants to make the type of music she feels is best for her at the moment. If you were a real fan you would have known the direction she was going with this album and there would be no surprises in store for you. She said she was inspired by Fela Kuti and the sounds of traditional african music and you can hear it as clear as day. Her image has evolved, not changed and that is where most people get confused. Booty shorts, and tank tops are not for everyone, and just because that is what you are used to does not mean she is going to continue to wear it. She likes Haute Couture and Avant Garde clothing and so she wears it. She got you ready last era and was slowly making the transition before your eyes but you didn't notice because you don't think that deep. All you do is see and hear her, but you never LISTEN!
“I had tears because I was just so happy that there was a moment for her and it was brilliant. The presentation was so beautiful and it’s just what she deserves.”— Kelly Rowland on Beyonce receiving the Billboard Millennium Award. (via ohitsbeyonce)
