It was insane. Absolutely incredible. It was the best performance I’ll ever see production wise. 10 different killer wardrobe changes, 43 songs, and the most badass Bonnie & Clyde themed short film they made played throughout the whole show. There was this really cool distinction between the first and second half of “This Is Not Real Life” vs. “This Is Real Life.” Incredible footage of their wedding, honeymoon, and Blu Ivy. I wish someone would pay me to write commentary on the whole thing. I cried during “Resentment,” “Pretty Hurts,” “Halo,” and “Young Forever.” Not because I was fangirling but because it was so beautiful how raw and emotionally vulnerable and honest it all seemed. I’m in awe of what a masterpiece that two hours of my life was.
As for the bow down lyric, I understand how it is unsettling and even offensive. To me, I see it not as a sacrilege or anything remotely irreverent spiritually, but her demanding respect from her peers in the music industry who would like to belittle her accomplishments and talent by degrading them to the product of her managers or to her profiting off the fame of her husband. She wants to be accredited what she’s due and I respect her for it.
