Sometimes PopMuse's life is like a dream... Like when he gets a phone call from a dear friend who is currently working on Dreamgirls, and gets invited to the set. Today I got to watch Eddie Murphy, Beyonce, and Jennifer Hudson work out a fierce performance of "Steppin' To The Bad Side" at the Orpheum Theater. And let me tell you children this film is gonna take ya'll to church!
I got to speak with a very sweet Jenny Hudson, who was all smiles; you can tell she is thrilled to be in this production (as she should be). I watched Beyonce hang with background dancers and just look like the most glamorous thing on any set EVER. (I swear that girl is a machine, but more on that later...) Also I said "hi" to fellow Music Video Vet, the Choreographer Extraordinaire Fatima Robinson, if you don't know about her, you really should.
Although I acquired lots of interesting gossip PopMuse does know discretion (believe it or not) and so I'm going to fight the urge to spew dirt and instead offer you a PopMuse Vid Clip. Since I know most of you white folk haven't seen the epic concert doc "Fade To Black" you probably missed this brilliant Beyonce Performance. I know you think you've seen her do "Crazy In Love" before but there is something so dirrty and raw about this performance. Check it out and recognize that Beyonce will soon be shedding all that you thought you knew about her and transforming into something wholly new. Holla at ya boy B.
