Beyoncé is super nutty. She is always going rogue. Sometimes I think it’s part of her act to be all mysterious. Other times I think she’s one of those people who never reads the itinerary or just skims her emails without actually absorbing the contents of what it says and so she “drops albums” on the wrong dates, but because she’s Beyoncé everyone’s just like, “She meant to do that.”
Well who’s to say whether this is one of those times, and who CARES, because Beyoncé has leaked a teaser for an upcoming music video for her new version of “Crazy in Love”!
I have so many questions. Why is the Stanford French major who slept with (but didn’t “sleep with”) Justin Timberlake from The Social Network starring in this video instead of Beyoncé herself?
Why is she dressed like Anne Hathaway pre-makeover in the Devil Wears Prada? Where is Beyoncés stylist?! Maybe this is symbolism but I’m used to Bey’s hidden meanings being a little bit more bedazzled.
Why is that young and hotter Matthew Morrison with a pointier chin wearing a long-sleeved muscle tee a la 1990?
Is Jay Z mad that the teacher from Glee was Beyoncé’s inspiration for the male lead?
What joke was told at the 1:44 mark that’s so damn funny?
Beyoncé can play the piano? Not that surprising, actually, but what a fun fact!
More importantly, why is the song called “50 Shades of Grey” when it very clearly is just a sexed-up remix of her 2003 hit?
WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN?
Only time will tell.
