Like her husband Jay-Z, Beyonce now has her very own course at a university in the States. Whereas Hov’s work is being broken down at Georgetown University, Bey’s career is being looked into at Rutgers University in a Women’s and Gender Studies course called “Politicising Beyonce.”
According to the Huffington Post, students are discussing how “the performer’s music and career are used as lenses to explore American race, gender, and sexual politics.” Course topics include “the extent of Beyonce’s control over her own aesthetic, whether her often half-naked body is empowered or stereotypical, and her more racy performances as her alter ego, ‘Sasha Fierce’.”
Hmm, when’s Rihanna gonna get her own course? I kid. Sorta.
