It has been days since Beyoncé’s historic Coachella set, and people are still talking about it.
Fans and critics gave rave reviews to her set that was rooted in black culture, as it was influenced by greek and marching band life in historically black colleges.
Her mother Tina Knowles was afraid it would not be understood by a diverse crowd that may not understand the metaphors and culture set at HBCU’s.
She shared those sentiments in an Instagram post, in which Beyoncé’s response is classic. “At this point in my life and my career i have a responsibility to do whats best for the world and not what is most popular.”
Go head Yonce!

Saw this written above photo and commentary by: Alisa Adamson Profit and thought i would share it with you https://apple.news/AmQP7CFzMQOS7gDDGvfigMw ❤️❤️I told Beyonce that i was afraid that the predominately white audience at Coachella would be confused by all of the black culture and Black college culture because it was something that they might not get. Her brave response to me made me feel a-bit selfish and ashamed. She said i have worked very hard to get to the point where i have a true voice and At this point in my life and my career i have a responsibility to do whats best for the world and not what is most popular “ She said that her hope is that after the show young people would research this culture and see how cool it is, and young people black and white would listen to “ LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SING and see how amazing the words are for us all and bridge the gap. She also hopes that it will encourage young kids to enroll in our amazing HIstorically Black Colleges and Universities . I stand corrected ❤️
