Beyonc Reflects on Fame Feminism in "yours and Mine" Short Film ...

Vanessa

In celebration of the one-year anniversary of her self-titled visual album, Beyoncé released "Yours And Mine," an eleven-and-a-half minute short film. The singer, who is the most Grammy Award-nominated woman in history, shared her thoughts about feminism, body image, fame, marriage, and a lot more.

"I sometimes wish I could be anonymous walking down the street like everyone else. Before I was famous, I was the girl on the hill with a guitar. I was the girl that just wanted a beautiful view of the beach. Now that I'm famous it's really, really difficult to do very simple things," she says.

Beyoncé, who's one of our time's biggest feminists, opened up about the whole idea of it: "I always considered myself a feminist, although I was always afraid of that word, because people put so much on it, when honestly, it's very simple: It's just someone who believes in equality for men and women. Men and women balance each other out, and we have to get to a point where we are comfortable with appreciating each other. I have a lot of empathy for men and the pressures that they go through and the cultures that have been created, especially for African American men. I have the same empathy for women and the pressures we go through—the woman has to provide so many things for their children. I consider myself a humanist." Watch the film:

My favorite line is: ""Happiness comes from you. No one else can make you happy. You make you happy." What's yours?

Mine is can you look in the mirror and say you like that person

@Melba Martinez cool down. You can't judge someone you don't know like that.

I am sorry, but this is so stupid. She is so ego centric, everything is me,me, me, I , I , I. If she wishes she could walk down the street like everyone else, why the hell does she go to a 3rd world communist country, like Cuba, dressed in those stupid costumes. She said she just liked to play her guitar and look at the ocean and now she is famous, like being a victim of fame, that is so stupid. What she wants is attention. And then she talks about how perfect her life is with her husband and her child. This is so stupid. The only thing right that she talked about was about men being victims of society like women too. That's the only thing...I feel she is trying to be a preacher just to get publicity.

I agree with melba martinez. My view on her has changed as ive got older, as a teenager she was great now i see it all as pathetic. I read books instead of listening to music. Everyone's entitled to there opinion, just saying is all

This video was amazing you go Beyoncé! :D

@Melba Martinez that comment was really spiteful and judgmental. You don't know her or her story.
