Whoa!! goddamn, goddamn, goddamn! Finally after the rumors of Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj working together on the “***Flawless” remix it has finally come to light.
Earlier Sunday morning Nicki blessed our ears with the Flawless remix and its the best thing you’ll hear all day! Beyoncé even addresses elevator-gate , “Of course sometime sh!t go down when it’s a billion dollars on an elevator!”
M.I.A. has finally given us the track of her Party Squad remix Beyonce’s “***Flawless” after teasing us back in March!
Listen to “BaddyGirl” below!
Beyonce has always been about the empowerment of women. Writing such girl power anthems like “Independent Women,” “Survivor,” and her latest “***Flawless” it was only a matter of time before The Shriver Report
would ask her to be apart of her movement. A short word about the nonprofit, “The Shriver Report is a multi-platform nonprofit media initiative led by Maria Shriver that seeks to modernize America’s relationship to women.” It is quite an interesting read. The essay in its entirety is below.
Gender Equality Is a Myth!
By Beyoncé Knowles-Carter
We need to stop buying into the myth about gender equality. It isn’t a reality yet. Today, women make up half of the U.S. workforce, but the average working woman earns only 77 percent of what the average working man makes. But unless women and men both say this is unacceptable, things will not change. Men have to demand that their wives, daughters, mothers, and sisters earn more—commensurate with their qualifications and not their gender. Equality will be achieved when men and women are granted equal pay and equal respect.
Humanity requires both men and women, and we are equally important and need one another. So why are we viewed as less than equal? These old attitudes are drilled into us from the very beginning. We have to teach our boys the rules of equality and respect, so that as they grow up, gender equality becomes a natural way of life. And we have to teach our girls that they can reach as high as humanly possible.
We have a lot of work to do, but we can get there if we work together. Women are more than 50 percent of the population and more than 50 percent of voters. We must demand that we all receive 100 percent of the opportunities. (The Shriver Report)
