Beyoncé’s Coachella documentary: A tribute to hard work, working mothers….and black culture

Working mums have always been told they cannot live their best life, but when that working mum is Beyoncé, she would climb every mountain to reach her dreams because a Queen Bee must inspire her hive!

Beyoncé recently released a documentary on Net flicks which gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at her iconic 2018 Coachella performance, She was nursing twins and a six year old,  prepping for Coachella, and working to lose the baby weight.

It was a difficult pregnancy with her twins

She dealt with both toxemia and preeclampsia, a condition related to high blood pressure. Beyoncé also said that she had to have an emergency C-section because one of the babies’ heartbeats “paused a few times.” On the day she gave birth to Sir and Rumi, Beyoncé said she weighed 218 pounds. She even let us  see a sneak peak of her chubby face and arms

Coachella 2018 was Beyoncé’s return to singing and performing

she said it was not easy to “rebuild” her body and feel comfortable incorporating pieces of her personality into the routine,  She gave up carbs, sugar, dairy, fish, meat, and alcohol.

Training was difficult at first 

“In the beginning, there were so many muscle spasms, my body was not connected. My mind was not there. My mind wanted to be with my children,” she continued. “What people don’t see is the sacrifice.”  “There were days that I thought I’d never be the same. I’d never be the same physically, my strength and endurance would never be the same.”

Queen Bey did not seat on her throne and allow her large team of staff to sort things out- her incredible work ethic came to bear 

she was involved in every detail of the coachella preparations-  the height of the pyramid, the stage, and all the outfits- demanding nothing but perfection. SHE PERSONALLY HIRED EVERY SINGLE DANCER and drilled them till their performance was perfect. “I was very adamant that we rehearsed every detail and knew the show back to back”.

“Instead of me pulling out my flower crown, it was more important that I brought our culture,” – Beyonce

Beyonce’s Coachella performance was an amazing representation of black art. From the band to the dancers, to the dances moves to the HBCU influence. She had Mostly black dancers with hood swag and black attitude. She danced with plus sized women with christian mother arms and a potbelly. There were hardly any blonds or brunettes- but more dreads, concrows and and ethnic hair.

Beychella was not just another concert, it was a celebration of black culture, a shout out to mums who work, a testament of handwork.
