This is What Beyonce’s ‘Flawless’ is Really About

September 3, 2015


Rihanna. Yes I said it, Rihanna. I’ve been pondering upon it for a while now, then I stumbled on this tweet.

I find that if you replace every ‘flawless’ in that song with ‘Rihanna’ or a Rihanna picture, you get the real, hidden meaning of the song. Science, I swear.

Let’s try with the chorus:

You wake up, flawless

Post up, flawless

Ridin’ round in it, flawless

Flossin’ on that, flawless

This diamond, flawless

My diamond, flawless

This rock, flawless

My Roc, flawless

I woke up like this, I woke up like this

We flawless, ladies tell ’em

I woke up like this, I woke up like this

We flawless, ladies tell ’em

Say “I look so good tonight”

God damn, God damn

Say “I look so good tonight”

God damn, God damn, God damn

Am I wrong? Didn’t it feel right to you?

*taps mic* I’d like to apologize to all Beyhive members. Please don’t make me disappear. Thank you.
