So this is really the reason why Solange suddenly dropped out of Coachella. Beyonce just couldn’t let her have her ONE moment, dammit!
Beyonce’s Coachella performance will live on forever as a new Beyoncé documentary called Homecoming is set to air on Netflix on April 17th. Netflix issued this announcement earlier today:
“‘Homecoming’ presents an intimate look at Beyoncé’s historic 2018 Coachella performance that paid homage to America’s historically black colleges and universities,” the announcement reads. “Interspersed with candid footage and interviews detailing the preparation and powerful intent behind her vision, Homecoming traces the emotional road from creative concept to cultural movement.”
And there’s an official trailer of the Beyonce special starring Beyonce, directed by Beyonce, and about Beyonce, and also co-starring Blue Ivy Carter and the holy twins.
This is going to be the Beyhive’s newest visual bible and they will probably re-stream it ten thousand times each. I can’t imagine what kind of Andy King antics the executives at Netflix pulled did to get this. (I’m sure they just paid a ton of money and/or gave Blue Ivy a small to medium island).
On top of being the first woman of color to headline Coochella, she also started a scholarship program called the “Homecoming Scholars Award Program,” which provided four Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) each a $25,000 scholarship to award to a student of their choice. She also sang Happy birthday to Diana Ross, was honored for being the gay icon that she is (????) and is trying make people vegans.
On a serious note, it is weird that Netflix is airing this. I didn’t think that anyone aired music documentaries that didn’t have horrible accusations of abuse in ’em. You learn something new. And the Emmy people better go into hiding if they don’t give this special every single Emmy and also give Beyonce several lifetime achievement awards for being Beyonce. The Beyhive will get them if that doesn’t happen.
