Yesterday, I saw something on Madame Noire (one of my favorite e-zines) that truly disturbed me. My girl Beyonce was stepping out in some ridunkulously super high heels. We all know that homegirl is with child and everyone was discussing whether or not her choice in fashion was wise.
Ya’ll know me. I’m opinionated. I had to comment on MN’s link. (Click here to see their article.) My two cents that I posted on Facebook: “Is she out of her mind??!!”
Everyone is saying that walking on those heels is like walking on a wedge shoe because they are supported by a flat bottom. Are you serious? How can being hoisted five inches off the ground (even with a flat bottom) ever be like walking in “normal” shoes? No. Nope. Nah-uh.
And someone tried to say that perhaps I’m throwing shade on Beyonce. Boos, ya’ll know I love me some Bey. “Ring The Alarm”. “Irreplaceable”. Et al. So, don’t ever try to accuse me of throwing shade on Queen B herself.
As a mother who had a baby ten months ago, I just question her choice. I also questioned whether her choice to continue dying her hair in her early months of pregnancy was wise (the health field warns against it).
I’m not trying to judge her (Lord knows I’m not) because I have made plenty of stupid decisions. But, I think Bey should step out in something a little more...ah…comfortable. If there’s any time to do it, it’s during her pregnancy.
Chill out, Bey. We all know you’re a fashion icon. You don’t have to keep proving it to us, especially not right now. Enjoy your pregnancy, girl. Smooches.
