What do you reckon Beyoncé
is doing right now? Practising her booty shake, playing with Blue Ivy, taking a nap?
As we discovered yesterday on a backstage tour of The Mrs Carter Show - the latter is unlikely. Beyoncé
is high energy, all the time.
Theres no way you can work with her and not develop an incredible work ethic. When youre with a pro you learn from the pro. Shes incredible. Said Montina, Crissy and Tiffany, the three brilliant vocalists aka The Mamas - who have been supporting Beyoncé
on tour for a combined total of 25 years.
In order to sing behind such a powerhouse you have to be a powerhouse. We have her back every night. Agree The Mamas.
With 12 outfit changes per performance and 30-40 seconds in which to make them happen, every stage look has to be engineered so that the switches are seamless. The secret is Lots of double stick. Theres always drama said Tina Knowles - Beyoncés
mum and the woman responsible for Mrs Carters show stopping stage wardrobe.
Designers including Givenchy
, Julien Macdonald
have collaborated to create Queen Beys unique costumes. Tinas personal favourties? The Kenzo
. I love the movement, its cool with the choreography, and African inspired. And David Komas
things are really innovative.
In all, theres a lot of love backstage at The Mrs Carter show. Its not just the whole wide world thats completely in awe of B, those closest to her are too. Beyonce
is magical and we just want to make sure we are an extension of her magic add Beyonce's troupe of dancers.
So we all agree then, Beyonce rules.
