Millie: can i talk to you about “get me bodied” for a second?
Millie: okay look
Millie: i might really feel this
April: i’m going to listen to it as we chat
Millie: this song and video is basically like, the most mindblowing thing made in like 50 years
Millie: just like the whole thing w/ the different dances?
Millie: WHO. THOUGHT OF THAT.
Millie: and then they FILMED THE EXAMPLES in the video
April: listen. i think beyonce is fucking incredible
Millie: i do too man.
April: like, on every level.
Millie: same here!
April: like beauty, singing, dancing, the whole nine
Millie: here’s the thing — everything she fucking says becomes a thing.
Millie: like what the fuck is “get me bodied”
April: she is straight-up the black madonna
Millie: and now it’s a thing to say
April: like got the clout of madonna in the ’80s
Millie: i think she’s BETTER than madonna
April: oh totally
April: but i’m just saying, power-wise
Millie: oh yeah
Millie: like her songs are way more creative than madonna
April: oh absolutely
April: but she’s got the clout and the trendsetting ability of madonna in the ’80s
Millie: like a “freakum dress”
Millie: i didn’t know a term for that
Millie: and now i do.
Millie: that’s power!
April: add it to the dictionary, merriam-webster!
April: she’s one of those people who were just born to do it
Millie: think about it - “what’s that dress you have that’s like that dress you wear when you wanna look hot and slutty”
Millie: “a freakum dress”
April: GOD this song is a jam.
April: i would hang out with beyonce every day.
Millie: it may sound dramatic but this song gives me chills
Millie: it’s just so insane
Millie: like, who the fuck thinks of this
April: no way, i totally get that shit
Millie: and like, little girls are like “pat your weaves ladies”
April: she fucking rules
April: i know it got kind of hated on as a single, but i LOVE that “run the world (girls)” song
Millie: i like beyonce b/c her songs are like, “go out with your girlfriends and dance with your slutty dresses”
April: OH TOTALLY
April: like NOT APOLOGIZING for that shit
Millie: like that’s awesome
April: OWNING IT
Millie: but it’s like “hang out with your friends, fuck it”
Millie: i mean, who the fuck thinks of “do the naomi campbell walk”
April: SNAP FOR THE KIDS
Millie: and now we’re like OF COURSE THAT’S A THING
Millie: i just can’t believe this song.
Millie: i can’t believe it exists
April: dude, i feel you
April: for real
April: like i just love how she just OWNS SHIT
Millie: and to say some shit like “9-4-8-1 B DAY”
Millie: that takes some balls
April: like, “yeah, ‘get me bodied.’ i’m singing that.”
April: i’m watching “freakum dress” now
Millie: and that phrase “get me bodied” - the fuck does it mean but it’s like, i’ll say that shit all the time
Millie: i want that power
April: i thought it meant, like, do me?
Millie: do me right?
Millie: well yeah, but i’d NEVER heard that term in my life before this song
April: well yeah
Millie: before i was like “i’ll do me”
Millie: or just “i’ll take care of myself”
April: i mean, i don’t even know if i’m right, but that’s what i guessed it meant?
Millie: but now i’m like throwing “get me bodied” in normal conversation, like it was always a thing to say
Millie: i want that kind of power!
April: dude “freakum dress” rules
April: “every woman got one”
April: beyonce is like that girl you know who is SUPER HOT but you can’t even hate because she’s so rad
April: like women aren’t even jealous of her because she’s cool as fuck
April: truth to power: “ladies, when you’ve been with your man for a long time, every now and then you got to go to the back of the closet and pull out that freakum dress”
Millie: i mean, we’re all hypnotized by her
Millie: it’s unbelievable
Millie: yeah she’s totally the best girl in your high school
Millie: and you knew her when she was a spaz in middle school and she still talks to you and shit
April: like everyone thinks she’s so beautiful but she’s still cool and didn’t get cocky and mean
Millie: yeah, and she still hangs out with her mom
Millie: i love how she’s super fun - i think that’s what gets me about her
Millie: like lady gaga is just dramatic and sex all the time
April: shit, what’s that song where she’s dressed like the 1940s?
Millie: but beyonce is super fun and sang a song called “bootylicious” not completely serious all the time
Millie: oh wait - i forgot
April: is it “ego”?
April: whoa this video man. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbnPkK76Ask&ob=av2e

Millie: THIS SONG.
April: i’m obsessed.
April: i swear to you that i listen to this at least once a day.
Millie: god i love this fake desert they’re dancing in.
Millie: and that fucking robot suit
April: and then she’s a SEXY ROBOT at the end!
April: haha yes!
Millie: that thing she does when she sings “my guilty pleasure i ain’t going nowhere”
April: DUDE. THAT DANCE.
April: she BREAKS IT ON DOWN
Millie: that is fucking crazy.
Millie: SEX AGGRESSION
April: i would never be able to do that dance even with 8,000 hours of practice
Millie: my brain can’t even go there.
Millie: like even if i was locked in a closet for 20 years and rendered immobile, i couldn’t come out the gate doing that
April: i also love this joint: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EwViQxSJJQ&NR=1
April: YOU MUST NOT KNOW ‘BOUT ME
Millie: oh yeah, this is a great break up jam
Millie: “i can have another you by tomorrow”
April: i love thinking of her taking her friend out after she got dumped and being like, “yo, forget that fool”
Millie: i love her songs b/c of that - it’s totally like, going out w/ your girlfriends music
Millie: so fun
April: and not in an annoying way
April: like i really feel like i would hang out with her all the time
Millie: yeah god, i know i would
