She's finally giving us follow-up orders!
As you may have heard, some uninformed folks found Queen Bey's costumes and choreo to be rather anti-police, but she's here to clear the air and set the record straight!
"I mean, I'm an artist and I think the most powerful art is usually misunderstood. But anyone who perceives my message as anti-police is completely mistaken. I have so much admiration and respect for officers and the families of officers who sacrifice themselves to keep us safe."
That seems like a very well thought out, yet predictably generic answer.
But that's not where she drew the line — Beyoncé went on to add that just because she can respect the cops, doesn't mean she'll stand for corruption, saying:
"But let's be clear: I am against police brutality and injustice. Those are two separate things. If celebrating my roots and culture during Black History Month made anyone uncomfortable, those feelings were there long before a video and long before me. I'm proud of what we created and I'm proud to be a part of a conversation that is pushing things forward in a positive way."
We still can't believe people took her video to be anything but commentary on our current racial divide and not a call to arms, but we're glad she's sticking up for herself.
Now just give us some new music already, dammit!
