WOW. I remember rushing home from school so I could catch the music video section on MTV, hoping that I would catch Beyonce‘s videos, “Crazy In Love” was the hot video at the time. I could watch that video over and over and over and over and……..you get the point, haha!
That was then, and now ….. “Partition” was released. Better yet, the video to “Partition” was released!! My goodness!!!!!
Ok, ok, back to talking about the video and song. This is definitely a different side to Beyonce, not that she hasn’t been “bold” before, but check out these lyrics:
Driver roll up the partition please
I don’t need you seeing Yoncé on her knees
Took 45 minutes to get all dressed up
We ain’t even gonna make it to this club
Now my mascara running, red lipstick smudged
Oh he so horny, yeah he want to f**k
He popped all my buttons, and he ripped my blouse
He Monica Lewinsky-ed all on my gown
Ummm yea……Monica Lewinsky, subtle hint, I think not!
Apparently the French voice at the end is saying:
Do you like sex? Sex. I mean, the physical activity. Coitus. Do you like it? You’re not interested in sex? Men think that feminists hate sex, but it’s a very stimulating and natural activity that women love
The video has gotten a lot of criticism, not only for the lyrics, but also for the sexual nature of the video. Some say that the “role model” aspect of Beyonce has been tainted. But reports say that she just wanted to perform something “sexy” for her husband, Jay Z. And this stemmed from a show they went to together after their engagement. The show featured the Crazy Horse dancers, which are seen in the video.
Oh B….when are you going to admit this song is about me hmmm??? Hahaha I kid I kid, but a man can dream right?! (please don’t let Jay read this!)
Alright, enough talking, check out the video!!
