Whether you’re into Beyonce or not, you have to admit that the singer has always come off as a pretty down-to-earth gURL despite all of her fame, and here is some more proof of that: she told PrideSource that she has always felt a major “connection” to her gay fanbase, and we think that’s pretty freakin’ awesome of her.
Beyonce revealed that her gay fans are the inspiration for her music. She said she feels like she is “one” with the LGBT community: “I have my (gay) stylists and my makeup artist, and all of their stories and the slang words I always put it in my music. We inspire each other. Like I said, we’re one.”
She added, “If anyone is brave and true to themselves, it’s my gay fans. The amount of confidence and fearlessness it takes to do what maybe is not what your parents expect you to do or what society may think is different – to be brave and be different and be to yourself – is just so beautiful. It’s the most beautiful thing you can be, and it’s what we all want to be at the end of the day. And not worrying about satisfying or becoming what other people think you’re supposed to be, that’s like the ultimate dream – to just be that brave.”
It’s always great to hear celebrities support the LGBT community, and we love how Beyonce’s gay fans inspire her music. WDYT, gURLs? Does this this make you think differently of Beyonce? If you’re gay or lesbian, do you appreciate what she’s said? Discuss below!
