    Yeah, my friend and I got 5th row in the upper deck for $98 each, but then she had a ton of shit go down and I'm actually quite shocked at how hard of a time I am at finding someone to go with me.

    I'm not brave Prestigious

    Would this album be likely to sway someone like me who really only likes some singles from Beyonce, and was "meh" on the self-titled? I'll give a listen anyway, but was wondering how different it is from that last album.

    Look at this guy Supporter

    Just did a first play through, its really good. She'll probably never top self-titled, but this feels really visceral and loose. So when's that divorce coming?

    Beyonce is not the type of artist that necessarily sings about her own life, so people really need to stop drawing conclusions about her and Hove. It's a corny thing to do anyway.

    I don't see how singing about a relationship is corny. Most people seem to think it's either about Jay, backed up by two years of rumours, or her father. That's not corny.

    I think they mean drawing conclusions about other people's marriages based on songs is a corny thing to do. At least that's how I took it.

    Right, misread the meaning. Maybe but policing what a person can and cannot take from a song is corny imo. I mean if we can't evaluate songs what's the point? And the obvious thing is Jay. Not that I necessarily believe the songs are about him, but it's a fairly obvious connection to make.

    I'm not policing. I'm just saying that I think it's corny and based on a (probably) false understandig of Beyonce's music.

    Beyonce has been explicitly singing about her life for years. "Rock his roc chain" on "formation", blue ft. Blue ivy, "heaven," every interlude on the last album was specifically about her and her life. Not saying that it isn't stupid to think they're getting divorced, because clearly they aren't, but it's not insane to think she's singing about her own life experiences.

    We were just talkin' bout the Jesus. Prestigious

    I think Beyoncé is just trying to increase the sales of Lemonade.

    Really enjoyed this piece: Making Lemonade

    Which is why I said "necessarily". Yes, she sometimes talks about her own life, but that's hardly all she does. I highly doubt she would let something like this become public at all without a divorce (which as we can see is not happening), but definilty not like this. That's why I think all the people that are now jumping on the "she aired out Jay, the dirty cheater" bandwagon don't make much sense and "analyze" her lyrics on the same level as TMZ. That's corny.

    I mean, confronting a cheater doesn't also have to end in divorce. Reconciliation and forgiveness is a thing. Lemonade definitely seemed to suggest that was a process that happened.

    Right, of course that is possible. I however doubt that that she would put that information out there, and if she would, that she would do it this way. Maybe I'm wrong. It still seems to me that I'm on the safer side than the people now pointing fingers at Jay as if Beyonce just released a tell all book.

    yeah Beyoncé is a very private person and I think all the speculation can be harmful but I also get why everyone's doing it

    Let's build something Together Prestigious

    I'm trying to wrap my mind around what the editing process was like...how they decided to string it all together in that particular order from choosing when to do call backs of images to the previous songs...to using such slow, poignant images...my brain just melts.

    If it didn't have a video companion I don't think there would be as much speculation. There would definitely be some but her throwing her wedding wrong off and Jay showing up in the way he did, sent the Internet into a spiral. I understand that it still could not be about them and is just imagery but I get why people think it is. I don't agree that they should be harassing Rita Ora or anyone though.
