Beyonce Live at Revel

Destiny’s Child haha aka me, Michelle and Karthy

So I am happy to say that I’ve witnessed Beyonce in concert last night at the new Revel Resorts in Atlantic City. To be blunt, the concert was amazing. Roughly two and a half full hours of dancing, live singing (sorry Britney), confetti, bright lights, sexy choreography, and the queen Bee herself. Enough said. Her setlist was extremely well-rounded as Beyonce performed hits from all of her albums, and the overall show was seamlessly perfect, energetic, and so positive. As an artist, Beyonce was the best I’ve ever seen in concert. She kept the show going without a glitch (well one dancer ended up losing her shoe during “Run The World”, but she held her own and kept dancing like a pro), and she was able to show the audience the glamourous side of her life as well as the very intimate side of her. Her performance of “Resentment” had many an audience in tears, let’s just say. As a role model, Beyonce represents something more for this generation of (somewhat lost and confused) females. She’s her own boss, she understands the importance of actually keeping her private life private, she keeps her priorities set, she has actual goals and aspirations, and she’s been able to balance her humble upbringing with the over-the-top life that she’s acquired. I was just so inspired by her through her personality and music last night as she emanated a strong, I-don’t-take-any-bullshit-from-men-and-can-still-make-my-own kind of woman. I know many people, especially guys, love to hate her, but I really don’t care. Y’all are jealous! Beyonce exudes a lot of sexuality, yes, but she also exudes diligence, motivation and  influence. How many guys can say that they can even come close to having those qualities?

(Cricket, Cricket)

Exactly. Anyway, last night just reignited why I’m such a fan of Beyonce, and I’m going to use last night to refuel my fire for world domination even more. Get ready.

Heineken: Inspire

Fun Time!

I attended one of the best events in Philadelphia this past Saturday: Heineken Inspire. Taking place at the TLA on South Street, Heineken sponsored some fabulous musicians in an amazing VIP-style event. Free beers all around the theater, free tshirt screenprinting with Heineken designs and even a chance to create your own VIBE magazine cover! The music was my main reason for attending because I’m a huge fan of J.Cole and Musiq Soulchild. Opening acts include the famous DJ Jazzy Jeff and Marsha Ambrosious who even gave us a sneak peak of her ballad on Wale’s Dairy track. I even got to meet Musiq at the end of the event in an alleyway! All in all, summer has a lot to live up to after this amazing (and did I mention Free!?) concert.

Thank you Heineken, you’ve truly inspired me.

Sigh my dreams have come true. I've seen J.Cole in concert. 🙂
