Everyone’s talking about Beyonce and Nicki Minaj’s new Feeling Myself video right now. And for more than one reason.
Let’s start with the outfits. From sequinned sports leotards and pink faur fur to denim Coachelle cut-offs and floral hair garlands, it’s all out OTT fabulousness for Bey and Nicki as they party their way through their latest track.
Beyonce’s even seen working Rita’s Ora’s new collection for Adidas Originals via her jungle print onesie – it really doesn’t get any better.
Secondly, there’s the antics. From chomping through burgers to frolicking in paddling pools and dancing with inflatable watermelons, there’s no denying these baes are having a total ball.
But one scene from the vide, that dropped on Tidal yesterday), has got people VERY riled up.
And it’s all down to Beyonce’s seemingly innocent hot tube behaviour, which involves the 32-year-old superstar pouring wine into the jazuzzi whilst working a hot black swimsuit. So far, so Bey, no?
But it turns out that bottle of vino is actually an Ace of Spades bottle of vino, worth an estimated $20,000. And some people think this isn’t very sensible behaviour for a Queen, oh no.
‘Beyonce pouring my college tuition fees into a hot tub’, wrote one Twitter user after watching the video. ‘Seeing Beyonce pour out a $20000 bottle into a pool is a slap in the face to me’, slammed another.
It’s not the first time celebs have thrown their wealth about in a music video, and it definitely won’t be the last. Plus, let’s all remember than hubby Jay Z actually OWNS the company that produces Ace of Spaces, so we’re sure it was a freebie anyway.
Secondly, we’d bet our bottom dollar they all took a cheeky sip first and re-filled it with water for the scene. Because, obv.
And let’s all remember that Bey is a hard-working, sassy lady, who once sang: ‘The shoes on my feet, I bought it. The clothes I’m wearing, I bought it, the rock I’m rockin’, ‘Cause I depend on me.’
And she gives to charity. So there.
