Want to be the next Beyoncé? There is now a class for that. No, this is not a joke, and no, this is not a drill. The course may not be taught by the pop superstar herself, but it is taught by someone in her life that knows a thing or two about what it takes to make it in the entertainment industry. In fact he brought her into the world, and not just in the literal sense. Yep, Beyoncé's dad is teaching a course on becoming a star.
Here's the scoop. Matthew Knowles has announced that he is offering a one-day workshop called "The Entertainment Industry: How Do I Get In?" on Oct. 24 in the family hometown, Houston. The class will be held in the performing arts complex called Hobby Center, and "aspiring singers, dancers, composers, writers, producers, managers, publicists, attorneys, business managers and all other entertainment industry hopefuls" are all encouraged to attend for the relatively low cost of $199. Well, the price is certainly right for a lot of people. And it does seem like a fantastic opportunity to learn about the industry from someone who has experienced it firsthand. But the thing about learning how to achieve success like Beyoncé is that you have to come to terms with the cold, hard truth that there are some things Beyoncé has that just cannot be taught.
Stamina To Work & Play Equally Hard
One minute she's touring the world with her equally successful hubby. The next she's stealing all the paparazzi shots on the red carpet at award shows. And the next she's whooping it up in Italy and the South of France on a vacation most can only dream of taking one day. All that work (and play!) takes energy of superhuman proportion.
Luxury Of Both A Public & Private Life
As explored in a recent New York Times article, Beyoncé has not granted the public a direct answer to an interview question in over a year, if you can believe that. As the title states, she is seen and not heard. In a near impossible feat, she has been able to be both incredibly public and private simultaneously.
Style is something that is often copied and attempted to be replicated. But Bey's is so personal and so tapped into her own influences and her innate sense of who she is as a woman that it is really hard to top her game-changing wardrobe. But since it is so individual, why would you want to?
Being This GIF-Worthy
Want to shut down a conversation immediately? Want to accentuate a great point you made? Want to get across your mood to the masses? There's a Bey GIF for just about anything you want to express. And there's pretty much no one else out there that can say that.
