The HBO special immediately created a stir online as fans and critics alike worked to untangle her personal storytelling from her larger socio-political message.

In the video above, Roth Cornet, Alicia Malone and Miri Jedeikin talk about Beyonce's revolutionary new visual album, and some people's assertion that it is little more than a marketing ploy.
