When Beyoncé made her triumphant return to the stage at Philadelphia's Made in America Festival, she brought with her a very important message—one originated by MMA fighter Ronda Rousey. The lesson at hand? How to be 'femininely badass.'
Before jumping into a booty-shaking/hair-blowing-in-the-wind performance of her 2009 jam 'Diva' (also known as 'the female version of a hustler' by Queen Bey's definition), she treated the crowd to a speech made famous by Rousey—further promoting girl power.
'Just because my body was developed for a purpose other than f*cking millionaires doesn't mean it's masculine,' concertgoers heard the UFC champ say in response to body-shamers. 'I think it's femininely badass as f*ck, because there's not a single muscle on my body that isn't for a purpose. Because I'm not a do-nothing bitch.'
A 'do-nothing bitch,' or D.N.B. for short, is the kind of person Rousey's mother taught her not to be. She's someone who just 'tries to be pretty and be taken care of by somebody else,' the 28-year-old explains.
Clearly, Beyoncé can relate. As an independent woman herself, the singer just wants her female Beyhive members to know that they, too, can be sexy, strong and everything in between—with zero apologies.
Because after all... Who run the world? Definitely not any D.N.B.'s.
