First there was the Beygency, and now? It’s time for the "Beyoncelogues."
That’s what actress Nina Millin has dubbed her recent videos, after she decided to perform the lyrics to classic Beyonce tracks like “Irreplaceable” and “If I Were a Boy” as monologues with a decidedly dramatic flourish.
With lyrics like, “If I were a boy / I think I could understand / How it feels to love a girl / I swear I’d be a better man,” it’s not difficult to recreate them as spoken word poetry.
But Millin pulls them off with such conviction that she truly takes it to a new level. She told “Esquire” that the project began when she “tried to sing Beyonce at karaoke and just couldn’t do it.”
Bey herself has yet to weigh in on whether she wants Millin to go “to the left, to the left” or if she thinks she’s Sasha Fierce.
