Thanks for posting this! Hopefully someday I'll get to see Queen Bey live, it sounds like a truly transcendent experience. I think this article makes lots of great points about what Beyonce represents to young women, especially young women of color. I do miss the Sasha Fierce days when she would wear the cyborg hand.

Oh, so this isn't about Temporary Autonomous Zones?

Great article. Written by Rachel Kaadzi, who also wrote the excellent "If he hollers let him go" about Dave Chappelle (previously on metafilter), which is now a finalist for a National Magazine Award.

Have you seen her?
So fine and pretty. Fooled me with her style and ease.
And I feel her from across the room.
Yes, it's love in the third degree.
Ooh, baby, baby.
Won'tcha turn your head my way?
Ooh, baby, baby.
Come on, take a chance.
You're old enough to dance the night away.
Oh, come on, baby, dance the night away.
A live wire.
Barely a beginner, but just watch that lady go.
She's on fire, 'cause dancing gets her higher than anything else she knows.
Ooh, baby, baby.
Won'tcha turn your head my way?
Ooh, baby, baby.
Well, don't skip romance, 'cause you're old enough to dance the night away.
Oh, come on, baby, dance the night away.
Dance the night away.
Dance, dance, dance the night away.
