Sippin on this Lemonade

I think what i like most about this whole Lemonade thing is that it has had so many different effects (affects? I never get those right lol) on people. I've seen think-pieces on Creole culture, colorism, racism, womanism, history lessons on Malcolm X, tales of the Igbo Landing and the lyrical styling of Warsan Shire.

Sure, there were those who were hung up on trying to figure out if "becky with the good hair" is really Rachel Roy (not Rachel Ray, although that was a hilarious mistake for the twitter history books) or if this was the inspiration behind Solange's street fighter antics in the elevator.

At this point, I think Lemonade has evolved from whatever it was Beyonce and co set out for it to be and has truly taken on a life of its own.

Which only makes me wonder even more- what exactly DID Beyonce want us to take from her work? And did she do me a solid and pay for my HBO because I promise you, i never had HBO before and when Lemonade dropped suddenly I had the ENTIRE HBO package!
