Beyonce Remakes "7/11" Music Video In Honor Of Gay Marriage Ruling & Her Bey-lated Support Is Much Appreciated — VIDEO
After the Supreme Court of the United States declared in a historic ruling that same-sex marriage bans are unconstitutional in all 50 states, celebrities everywhere joined in on the #LoveWins Twitter discussion, rejoicing in marriage equality all across America. But where exactly was strong LGBTQ supporter Queen Bey, who hasn't even tweeted since 2013? Turns out, Beyoncé was remaking her "7/11" music video in honor of same-sex marriage, like one does.
Captioning the vibrant Instagram video "Never Too Late #lovewins," Beyoncé dances and lip syncs to the track, donning a serious jealousy-inducing array of brightly-colored ensembles, including a rainbow-print bikini (paired with a giant rainbow flag that she flaps around like wings), a green jersey emblazoned with the phrase "girl power," a rainbow boa, and another tiny rainbow flag that the singer waves proudly.
Never too late, indeed. Beyoncé's public "statement" about the same sex marriage ruling may have been, well, bey-lated (c'mon, I had to), but it is certainly still important. And waiting a few days — after the elation died down just a tad — was a pretty genius move, too, once again bringing pride and #lovewins to the forefront of everyone's minds. But then again, what do you expect? It's Beyoncé.
Queen Bey has spoken out about her support of same-sex marriage before. In fact, she was on the May 2014 cover of LGBTQ magazine Out and passionately explained her stance on the issue, saying,
But what I’m really referring to, and hoping for, is human rights and equality, not just that between a woman and a man. So I’m very happy if my words can ever inspire or empower someone who considers themselves an oppressed minority… We are all the same and we all want the same things: the right to be happy, to be just who we want to be and to love who we want to love.
Damn straight. And it's never too late to support that universal idea of love. Especially when you're as fierce as Queen Bey in all of her #lovewins glory.
