Days After Bey Says Being A Role Model Stifled Her, The Game’s 3-Year-Old Daughter Sings About Surfboard Swervin’
If we’ve learned nothing else about Beyoncè since the surprise release of her new surprise album, we’ve learned that she’s feeling a lot more free to talk (and sing) about her sexuality. In the fifth installment of her documentary, the “Drunk In Love” singer recently revealed that trying to comply with the guidelines of being a kid-friendly role model significantly stifled her creativity.
“I started out when I was 9 with the girls of Destiny’s Child and our first album came out when I was 15,” she explained. “I was a child. But now I’m in my 30s, and those children that grew up listening to me have grown up and I always felt it was my responsibility to be aware of kids and their parents and all these generations and I feel like it stifled me. I felt like, in a sense, I could not express everything. I’ve done so many things in my life, in my career, that at this point I feel like I’ve earned the right to be me and to express any and every part of myself.”
In the documentary, mega producer Pharrell can also be seen praising Beyoncé for her boldness that is setting wives and mothers free.
“Only a momma can talk like that. Only a wife can talk like that. That is your strength,” said Pharrell. “You just ran through jail and let all the women out ‘cuz. You set women free!”
While Bey’s new found freedom may be great for her own personal growth and her growth as an artist, it’s not the best news for the parents of children who adore her. For example, rapper The Game recently posted a video of himself playfully scolding his 3-year-old daughter, Cali Dream, who sang her hear out to Bey’s “Drunk In Love” track—including the part about surfboard swervin’.
“@littlemisscali got mad at me cause I told her she can’t sing the “surfboard” part on @Beyonce & went to get babied by my momma,” The Game wrote.
