Watch Beyonce Talk Feminism, Marriage and Blue Ivy in a New Video

by Elizabeth Thompson

While the rest of us have those terrible "your year" Facebook videos to mark our milestones from the past 12 months, Beyonce has black-and-white gorgeously art-directed videos featuring desertscapes, water falls and enough slow motion to deplete all of the fragrance commercial industry's stock for years to come. To mark the year anniversary of December 2013's world-ending Beyonce and reflect on all that's happened since, Queen Bey just released "Yours and Mine," a 12-minute meditation on life, love, motherhood and feminism. Yonce's disembodied sooth-bot voice floats over footage collected from various Beyonce video shoots as she shares her longing to be a regular person ("when you're famous, nobody looks at you like you're human anymore. You become the property of the public), discusses being a feminist and what that word really means, and bestows some obtuse spiritual pithiness that only Knowles and Tilda Swinton could ever pull off ("I feel like my body is borrowed, and this life is very temporary"). Blue, Jay-Z and Solange make cameos. We've already watched it three times and definitely cried a little bit the first time. May your 2015 be filled with peace, love and Bey.
