Following her “Tarantino-inspired” collaboration clip with Lady Gaga for “Telephone,” Beyonce is killing the game again, but this time it’s herself.
“Sasha Fierce is done. I killed her,” said Beyonce in her recent interview with Allure magazine.
At the beginning of her career, the singer created her alter ego Sasha Fierce in an effort to separate her own shy personality from her stage persona and give herself the courage to be free and sexy while performing. Beyonce even went so far as to name check the alter ego on her last album, “I Am…Sasha Fierce.” The LP was split into two physical CDs and two genres, the “I Am…” side held pop songs like “If I Were A Boy” while “Sasha Fierce” boasted urban chic like “Video Phone,” Bey’s first duet with Lady Gaga.
Now the singer says that she’s comfortable enough with herself to be all of those things without an alias.
“I don’t need Sasha Fierce anymore, because I’ve grown, and now I’m able to merge the two,” she continued.
In fact, the singer-songwriter-actress admitted that she’s beginning a career break after the conclusion of her world tour in Trinidad this month, adding she’d like “to paint and cook, and to do Broadway shows and museums. And learn just to be at home and just watch television.”
We don’t believe you Bey, you need more people. We agree, as strange as it sounds, with Perez Hilton.
“Can’t you just picture her on her couch with a bag of Frito’s completely enthralled in an episode of Ghost Whisperer?…We want Sasha Fierce back!!” posted Hilton.
Though Mrs. Carter is eyeing a vacation, she’s still got two new videos on the way with pop powerhouses Lady Gaga for “Video Phone” and Alicia Keys’ “Put It In A Love Song” so we won’t miss her for long.
ps. Allure, shame on you for not having the full Bey interview on your OWN website. Get it together and grab your own uniques, sincerely, PLR.
pps. I wrote this for MTV News too…
