Hmm, it seems as if someone didn’t learn from the Clifford Harris experiment in alter egos as she plans to unveil “Sasha Fierce” to the world. I’m never one to crush someone’s dreams & ideas so let’s look @ the brighter side of things, the possible positive outcomes. My biggest neg when dealing with B is her image. I never get that feeling as if I’m experiencing the real “Yawnsay.” Every picture is so polished. The quotes are always composed of warm feelings laced with the smell of lilac. Maybe this imagined image is what she needs as an excuse to cut loose & let her (horse)hair.
“The new record is a double album and has two covers, like a magazine would have two covers,” Beyoncé revealed. “One of the covers is named I Am… and the second cover is named Sasha Fierce. That is my alter ego and now she has a last name. I have someone else that takes over when it’s time for me to work and when I’m on stage, this alter ego that I’ve created that kind of protects me and who I really am. That’s why half the record, I Am…, is about who I am underneath all the makeup, underneath the lights, and underneath all the exciting star drama. And Sasha Fierce is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken side and more glamorous side that comes out when I’m working and when I’m on the stage. The double album allows me to take more risks and really step out of myself, or shall I say, step more into myself, and reveal a side of me that people only know me see.”
Maybe with Sasha Fierce persona, we’ll get to experience some of the trapped energy that we know is in the Knowles girls, that same rawness that sister Solange managed to channel for her latest project (bangs!). Imagine B finally letting loose on the razzi like Kanye did, taking her _______ (insert latest designer name) purse & whacking one across the dome…then she can blame on it Sasha.
When I hear the name, I envision a chain-smoking, S&M-type femme fatale, clad in leather. Imagine a video reenacting the Sharon Stone leg-crossing scene from Basic Instinct then taking it a few steps further by throwing a mock detective on top of a desk & riding him…with those thick ass thighs B possesses. Now if they get a bonus DVD with footage of her engaging in that type of shit, I’ll preorder right f’n now.
I Am…Sasha Fierce releases on 11.18.08.
