Becoming Sasha Fierce

October 26, 2009

You guys have probably heard of Beyonce's alter ego, Sasha Fierce, right? Several months ago she explained to V magazine how she becomes Sasha Fierce before her performances. This quote kinda gives me chills, but maybe I'm just overeacting, reading too much into what she's saying. I would to hear what you think. Check out what  Beyonce says, and then hit me back on the question below.

“When I’m onstage, I’m aggressive and strong and not afraid of my sexuality. The tone of my voice gets different, and I’m fearless. I’m just a different person. It’s a way for me to differentiate what I do onstage from who I really am. It’s a way for me to not lose myself, to keep my life in perspective, because it’s really hard sometimes to stay on Earth when you’re a celebrity.”

“It’s funny because right before the show I’m under the stage making sure my double-stick is in the right place, my pack is turned on, and my shoes have the stickies on the bottom so I don’t slip—all of these things that are so not glamorous. Then I take my last sip of water, clear my throat, close my eyes, and tell myself, You are fierce. You are fierce. You are fierce! And the second I take that first step and hear that crowd, I kind of transform. By the time I get up to the stage, I’m in the zone. I don’t feel anything anymore. Like if I’m in pain or if I’m nervous it kind of becomes, I don’t know how to describe it, I become that other thing. It’s like I’m ready for war.”

Is Beyonce describing a form of demon possession? What do you think?
