In case you too have just turned 49 a week ago and sometimes feel blue about where your good looks have gone, look at Beyonce in her Cuban weave and ask yourself would she be a megastar without her blonde extraterrestrial extra long fan blown weave? Hell no! If Sasha Fierce lets herself go, Beyonce as an illusion is revealed.
So at 49, it will just take some of us a little longer each coming day to unleash the illusion that is our inner Beyonce.
Or HGH to unleash our inner 50 year old Marc Jacobs (boyfriend Harry Louis, 24, comes,um, separately).
Beyonce sums up the election results in 3 words!
“America, I believe we can build on the progress we’ve made and continue to fight for new jobs and new opportunity and new security for the middle class. I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you’re willing to work hard, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn’t matter whether you’re black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you’re willing to try.”–Barack Obama
