Male misbehavior is still endemic, of course—heartbreakingly so... What's changed is women's reaction. Boys can be boys all they want, but girls have had it with being played for fools. We're not interested in the doormat role anymore. You choose, you lose, suckas.
The girlpower message came across loud and clear at Sunday night's Billboard music awards when Beyoncé electrified the crowd with “Run the World (Girls).” Beyoncé--who raked in $87 million last year, according to Forbes, handily beating out hubby Jay-Z, whose mogulhood earned him $63 million--spelled it out.
“Disrespect us no they won't/Boy don't even try to take us,” she sang, powerful as a fembot and surrounded by a dancing army of other Amazons. “I'm repping for the girls who taking over the world... Boy you know you love it/How we're smart enough to make those millions/Strong enough to bear the children/Then get back to bidness/See, you better not play me!...”
As Beyoncé told the crowd, “Men have been given the chance to rule the world, but ladies, our revolution has begun!”
