PHILADELPHIA -- Beyoncé gave a flawless headlining performance at Budweiser's Made In America festival on Saturday (Sept. 5) and... what else is new, right? That's pretty much a standard night for Bey, but she did introduce some new and inspiring elements to her live set that had our heads spinning a bit.
Think the Queen's too busy to pay attention to other badass females who are doing their thing? Nope, think again.
In addition to featuring Maya Angelou's classic poem "Phenomenal Woman" during an interlude, she also gave some major love to Ronda Rousey before launching into "Diva."
If you're not familiar with Rousey, she's a championship UFC fighter who's never afraid to speak her mind, and Bey found one of her recent quotes very inspiring.
In a July UFC vlog, Rousey shut down critics who continued to describe her body as too "masculine," by boldly declaring that she's not a "Do Nothing Bitch." Bey used the below portion of Rousey's rebuttal (which gave us chills) as a transition to "Diva."
“I have this one term for the kind of woman my mother raised me to not be, and I call it a do nothing bitch -- A DNB," Rousey said. "The kind of chick that just tries to be pretty and be taken care of by someone else."
"Listen, just because my body was developed for a purpose other than f--king millionaires doesn’t mean it’s masculine. I think it’s femininely badass as f--k because there’s not a single muscle on my body that isn’t for a purpose, because I’m not a do nothing bitch."
This didn't go unnoticed by the #BeyHive either.
Besides blowing our minds by using Rousey's quote, Bey delivered a perfect set, with hits that included "Crazy in Love," "7/11," "Ring the Alarm," "Flawless," "Say My Name," "Yonce," "XO," Single Ladies" and "Halo."
Go get yourself a "No D.N.Bs" shirt. You deserve it.
Elsewhere, Nicki Minaj made a cameo during Meek Mill's set, and left us wondering why she didn't join Bey for "Feeling Myself."
She Instagrammed the song from the audience and all.
Day two of the fourth annual Made in America festival is coming up. This wraps up Budweiser's summer music program, which has included some monumental (literally) concerts at the Statue of Liberty and under the Golden Gate Bridge.
