For the last few months or so, Beyonce Knowles has heightened her social media presence. Launching her very own web site this year and snagging her own Instagram page, stans and fans can’t get enough of her updates. Over the weekend, she released a note, scribbled on note-book paper, filled with words. The note read:
HERE I AM — JUST SO UGLY, DULL, POOR, BEAUTIFUL, RICH, INTERESTING, AMUSING, RIDICULOUS –TAKE ME OR LEAVE ME. AND HOW BEAUTIFUL IT IS TO BE DOING, ONLY WHAT LIES WITHIN YOUR OWN CAPABILITIES AND IS PART OF YOUR OWN NATURE. IT IS A GREAT BURDEN ROLLED OFF A MAN’S BACK WHEN HE COMES TO APPEAR NOTHING THAT HE IS NOT. TO TAKE THAT OUT OF LIFE ONLY WHAT IS TRULY HIS OWN.
We have no clue as to if this is a stream of consciousness, lyrics to a new song (on her forthcoming solo album) or jibberish. What we do know is that she’s pretty strategic with what she shares online. Hopefully, one of her die-hards can clue us in on what this simple note means in the grand scheme of musical things.
