My kid would not like any of this. My child was scared of Black Panther. Some scenes and themes are too dark, literally too many night scenes, the songs lyrics are too fast and there are not many images of children. Mainly the one little boy.

And as far as raunchy content, I thought the super bowl halftime which I watched with my 5 year-old daughter was way raunchier than anything I saw in the film

I even let her watch the Brown-Skinned Girl part before she went to bed since I know how much she liked the song.... and she begged me to watch it a second time cuz she enjoyed it so much

In response to Reply # 14
Sat Aug-01-20 07:38 AM by Mori

          

Kids were welcomed along the journey, but it was a movie with complex themes for black adults.

I don't find Black Panther or Black is King to be something I would immediately turn on and sit my kid in front of tv, walk away and think I shouldn't fast forward through some scenes.

Most content made for Black children contains adult themes. We are so used to it, and desperate for black content that we tolerate it.

Beyonce's Black is King was entertaining, beautiful and fun, but I would not allow my child to watch this unsupervised.

I think this is true of most children's shows. I also don't at all like the message Black Panther was sending to Black children, especially given the nuances and historical perspective necessary to understand it... or the social awareness to separate fact from fiction. Its entanglement with such a sensitive Black reality was too conducive to brainwashing imo, but that's another topic. Anyway, as for the complex themes, I think that's been true of many childrens shows for 40+ years. I've looked back at children's shows I watched as a child and noticed there was more going on than I realized. Not necessarily a bad thing imo.

I haven't seen Black Is King yet, so I'll come back after I do.

>are so used to it, and desperate for black content that we

This is an interesting point. I'd really like to hear more about your observations on this... examples, etc. I would love to look into this myself.

Main reason I posted the question. Your assessment is appreciated... . We didn't get a chance to watch it last night, but I kinda fast forwarded through it on mute while cooking dinner....from what I saw....yeah, probably gonna be something I hold off on for a bit.. Although I will try to section out the Brown Skin Girls and Find Your Way Back parts...they (and we) have been banging those songs on the regular since The Gift was released...I think I even made a post about it lol....

and let your kids digest on their own.

My kids are too young so it’s just “why is she dancing, there is a monkey daddy, ooh, a snake”

but if I had an 8 year old I could see them watching it and seeing some powerful Black imagery.

my 7 & 3 year olds might have some nightmares off some of the imagery....I saw snakes, a dude coughing up gold or something, I think I saw woman with horns, a dude that appeared to be drowning....I also skimmed through at least 3 min. of a woman in a skin tight suit gyrating and gettin' low....which 3 min on fast forward was probably more like 10 min in real time lol....

I’m thinking 8 and up.

I didn’t see the whole think and didn’t see enough to think it was scary. My kids love Moana and Princess and the Frog and I think those movies have scarier images than what I saw in this video.

Real talk tho... I’m not really interested in my kids seeing Beyoncé dancing.

10. "A tribute to Black Men "
In response to Reply # 0


          

I enjoyed it. I liked the visuals, though they moved too quickly. I also enjoyed and the "See yourself as a King" themes. I found the afrobeat a little monotonous. The Lion King references were a little random, didn't seem like it added to the story.

It was refreshing to see Jay Z, Burna Boy, Yemi Alade and the other West African Artists.

Something about the silver, blue and metallic coloring felt overdone. I felt relieved to see other colors.

I loved the beach scenes against the mountain backdrop. I liked the rootsy African history references, such as the Dogon, the little boy with the Kalimba, and so on.

Beyonce follows a formula and by now you an guess that her songs will be about the following: 1) Her dad 2) Her husband 3) Her kids 4) Self empowerment 5) sexual act.

Overall, I liked it, wasn't as crisp as Lemonade and I would prefer more R&B and hip hop.

everything was on point as usual.

just wish something like this had dropped closer to the project so the songs would be newer to me.

when i discovered that Beyonce's Lion King album wasn't just her singing songs from the Lion King.

there's some joints on there.

the visuals on Black Is King were fire. some were like, SUPER fire.

shout out to her team (the credits for Black Is King were EXTENSIVE and I was thinking as I was watching how many people must have worked on that).

her like most of humanity.

usually anything that's constantly hyped and praised? i'm out on those things.

so, when i saw the album title, and knowing she was involved with the movie in various ways, i just assumed "oh, beyonce is singing lion king songs - makes sense but i don't care"

i didn't realize there was original music on there, which i always check for i don't care who the artist is. i'm gonna give anyone a chance. that's just how i roll.

so as I'm watching Black Is King i'm like "damn, some of these song's are fire" and i grab my tablet and look up what Black Is King is, exactly. that's when i realize its visuals for those songs that i didn't even know existed until i was watching.

oh well. late is better than never, i guess.

There were some NICE original songs on that joint...but I really feel like that album was slept on because folks assumed it was just a collection of stuff from older albums and nothing else.

But yeah, I doubt I'll check for her OLD catalog off the strength of this album.....but I'll def. pay a little more attention to future releases.

didn't this shit just come out? Wait, Beyonce's Lion King soundtrack thing wasn't just her signing 'Hakuna Matata'?"

I was mad late to the whole party.

I did find it interesting how hard she's leaning into the West African religion, and seeing Beyhive like 'OMG I'm Oshun, too!'. I think West African religion is beautiful and wonderful, but it's not something I think should be taken lightly. It's a deep and complex world. She's been leaning into it for a while - check the Formation video among other things, but it's all the way out there now.

Lemonade has the gift of what felt like extended scenes, this was just a mashup of a bunch of different scenes and looks and as soon as I would appreciate one scene it would warp speed of the next.

28. "Has Beyonce always been curvy?"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I don't pay attention to Bey so my mental image of her has kinda always been this: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/ff/6e/fb/ff6efbc60a8eb89c6b30411a524c6a18.jpg


so I was surprised when I saw this. I even asked my wife if she had work done. It was actually distracting because it conflicted with how I always imagined her.


eh.


Anway, really dope art. I kept saying that I was surprised Disney broke off that money for such a pro-black piece of work.

30. "had a few kids, and has been vocal and proud about her body"
In response to Reply # 28


  

          


said she realized after Coachella she didn't want to work out as hard and diet as obsessively as she had for that. She openly stated that she'd rather let nature take its course, she'll still eat clean (mostly vegan) and train but not be homicidal about it and instead pour that energy into her kids. Fantastic message to put out there for someone as important as she is.

Beyoncé always had the hips and curves..

Not sure where he has been.

She’s always had body
https://media1.popsugar-assets.com/files/thumbor/6LP6JBumibxOebnQtDRUohEUOdQ/fit-in/1024x1024/filters:format_auto-!!-:strip_icc-!!-/2014/08/25/739/n/1922729/24d4fb789ce29737_beyonce.jpg

Kinda disrespectful to suggest she looks like a Kardashian. They been trying to buy that Beyoncé body all along.

and musically, probably the least provocative and inspiring stuff she's put out in a very long time. Very fun to look at but not much else.

EDIT: I cannot imagine the effort that it took to coordinate this logistically, and how hardcore the NDA effort must've been to prevent news or images of this from coming out

...instead of being proactive, it's always somebody who gets a lil' info and then runs with it instead of getting more knowledge and the root of it...oh well .

This day & age, the young gen got a short attn. span anyways.

I jammed noname’s last album. I’m uninterested in her social media at this point. She could’ve done really well to be constructive and useful after the Cole stuff. Now, she’s gonna risk getting tagged as one of those folks who just pops out of a cave to bash stuff...kinda like the worst part of the backpacker era. It’s fine to ask questions but I wish she could come up for other reasons..like them good raps or again, something constructive and useful.

or dive into the streets and really get on that social work.

all these twitter popoffs are bad for her image and killing the bit of goodwill she built up from the cole thing.

In response to Reply # 47


          

and new to this Twitter activist thing.

One thing that stood out in the video I watched is she isn’t really doing the work she speaks about when asked to follow up her hot takes.

But this is the time we live in.

Anything that gets attention will surely receive criticism because it’s an easy way to go viral.
