Well since it’s Sasha “Fierce Friday” and I’m listening to Beyoncé on Spotify I figured I would
finally post the awesomeness that is the — MRS. CARTER Experience at Essence Festival 2013! I know it’s almost October, but as long as 2014 didn’t hit then I’m not too late, right? And besides, it’s never too late to post about the Queen! I shared about my trip here–but the icing on the cake was seeing Baddie Bey perform LIVE in concert! I saw/heard her for the first time in D.C. at Inauguration 2013 (yes, she did actually sing, I don’t care what anybody says). BUT…there is NOTHING like hearing her sing and watching her float across that stage and gyrate to different rhythms/beats! So you know I had to kick it up a notch for my girl! Yes, we’re Besties in my head.
I call this my “big hair don’t care ” look — Kimmie Gee meets Ashley E (Beyoncé’s dancers)! I’ll share the deets on my outfit in a later post.
Pre-Concert Festivities — The CoverGirl Queendom Party
Me and the Girls on the Pink Carpet at the CoverGirl Queendom Party!
Look who we ran into!?
Yes, that’s the gorgeous Nicole Murphy and Andrea Kelly from the show Hollywood Exes! But who cares about exes when you are that fabulous!
I briefly went to hear Luke James perform in the Super Lounge. I’ve seen him perform several times so I didn’t stay long and decided to head to the main stage to hear TGT. I couldn’t post pictures because Tank and Tyrese was showing out taking off all their clothes! LOL (Kidding…but they really were).
Janelle Monáe was on the main stage!
I really enjoyed Janelle Monáe! Her performance was awesome! She’s truly one of a kind and I love her eclectic style. Get her album! You’ll thank me later.
Let me just say…Beyoncé TRULY delivered–simply AMAZING! From her vast wardrobe changes, colorful ensembles, band, dancers, singers, voice, stage presence–it was nothing less than perfection! I’m glad I was able to capture some great moments of her thanks to a very special gift!
