1+1 Live from Mrs. Carter Show World Tour
“Take one pint of water, add a half pound of sugar, the juice of eight lemons, the zest of half lemon. Pour the water into one, then to another several times. Strain through a clean napkin. Grandmother. The alchemist. You spun gold out of this hard life. Conjured beauty from the things left behind. Found healing where it did not live. Discovered the antidote in your own kitchen. Broke the curse with your own two hands. You past these instructions down to your daughter, who then passed them down to her daughter.”
LEMONADE by Beyoncé
Happy 38th birthday,
Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter! (September 4th 1981)
I’m so lucky and grateful that I’m able to take all these crazy ideas and actually make it into something that heals people. That may spark vision in people, that shows them to dream big, that shows them that they are limitless. It’s possible. If my country ass can do it, they can do it.
