Now don’t get me wrong, I love Crazy in Love as much as the next person, but when Beyoncé announced she was pregnant with twins a couple of weeks ago I was taken aback by the world’s reaction. ‘Queen Bey’ was pregnant with twins and the whole of social media knelt down at her feet. People on my timeline were going hysterical, claiming that this was just what the world needed.
Do people forget that Beyoncé is just a mere human being like the rest of us? Yes she’s a celebrity and undoubtedly a great performer but her babies are not going to impact our lives, unless they dance out of the womb and kick Trump out of the White House.
Don’t get me started on the Virgin Mary-like photo she posted on Instagram. Can you imagine feeling that self-important? What’s worse is that people feed into it, over 10 million people have now liked it. Do people forget that only last year her Lemonade album detailed her husband Jay Z’s infidelity? But of course everyone has moved on from that now and the Carters are viewed as the perfect family.
This is celebrity worshipping to the extreme and it’s probably only going to get worse.
