Once upon a flawless time…
If you told us that Beyoncé was actually a fairy tale princess, we’d probably buy it for an embarrassingly long period of time. That’s why when we first watched “Cinderoncé,” a YouTube retelling of “Cinderella” entirely through Bey’s greatest hits, we maybe kinda sorta thought it was a dramatization (if not actual documentary) of the “Grown Woman” singer’s actual life story. Can you blame us? Glass houses, y’all, GLASS HOUSES.
Seriously, how can one woman Bey so flawless?! If this is what the superstar looks like when riding roller coaster, then she’s gotta have some kind of fairy god-diva looking out for her — Tina Knowles can only do so much!
Watch Todrick Hall’s “Cinderoncé” after the jump.
This insanely imaginatively eight-minute masterpiece comes to us courtesy of Todrick Hall, one of “American Idol”’s season nine semi-finalists. Comprised of 10 different Beyoncé classics (or more, tweet us if you caught any we missed!), our standout fave is definitely the clip’s middle act taking place at the ball: Cinderoncé enters to “Bow Down/I Been On,” she shares a “1 + 1″/”Hello” mashed-up duet with Prince Charming (played by Hall), and flees to “Countdown” once the clock strikes midnight. INSPIRED.

BTW, did that fairy drag-mother look familiar? Well, she should! That’s Shangela Laquifa Wadley, a former contestant on “RuPaul’s Drag Race” seasons three and four, aaaaaaand one of the fabulous drag goddesses featured in Lady Gaga’s “Applause” lyric video!

Oh, and before we wrap, we’d be remiss if we didn’t include this TOTAL GEM we found on Todrick’s YouTube account! Check out some cray-cray neon makeup and Fruit Loop bras (we’ll have one in every color!) in his mash-up of Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” and Ariana Grande’s “The Way” featuring Paige Thomas from “The X Factor”! Ha! Amazing. This is so good. But seriously, we weren’t kidding about the Fruit Loop bras. GIVE ’EM.
