If you'd like a taste of the world according to Beyoncé, her new short film is for you.
One year ago, Bey shocked the music world by dropping an album out of nowhere. And on Friday (December 12), she celebrated the anniversary of that self-titled release by dropping "Yours and Mine."
The nearly 12-minute piece finds the 33-year-old reflecting, uplifting and analyzing. She provides a voiceover throughout, as a beautifully shot collection of clips of her in an array locations and with an array people compliment her words.
She starts off examining fame, and how it's changed her life. "I sometimes wish I could just be anonymous and walk down a street just like everyone else," she says. "Now that I'm famous, it's really, really difficult to do simple things...When you're famous, no one looks at you as a human anymore. You become the property of the public. There's nothing real about it."
From there, Queen Bey touches on loving yourself and your body and appreciating that body, finding happiness from within, and her relationship with and the importance of feminism.
Oh, and anyone still running with those rumors of a divorce between her and husband Jay Z? She seems ready -- again -- to put those to rest.
"One thing that's for sure," she says to close the film. "The love I have for music, for my husband, for my child, is something that will last far beyond my life."
