Beyonce’s (Not So Beautiful) Nightmare

13 Jul

Apparently, the whole married/domesticated lifestyle is still a work in progress for Jay-Z.  Okay, I’m jesting a bit…but c’mon, what is really going on?  I mean, how else can it be explained that while visiting in London, he’d let his wife exit their vehicle not at the curb but into busy London traffic, where she almost became a hood ornament?

 According to The Sun online, after making a brief detour to Harrod’s Department Store en route to dinner, Beyonce opened her car door and prepared to exit, just as a passing taxi ripped the door off its hinges, narrowly missing the singer.  Both she and Jay-Z were visible shaken according to witnesses at the scene, and had to await a replacement car to take them to their ultimate destination (evidentially, the decision to shop was out at that point).

 Okay, I’m not really blaming Jay for this one.  Who’s to say that he didn’t suggest that she exit at the curb?  Besides, even if he had, Bey is clearly of the “Independent” variety and has been for a long time, so it is likely that she wasn’t waiting on a husband, driver or bodyguard to do something for her that she could clearly do for herself.

 I’m just glad that as harrowing an ordeal that I image this was, Mr. and Mrs. Carter walked away unscathed.  As invincible as we all think we are at times, this situation could have ended horribly, and should remind us not only that each day is a gift, but also of the fragility of life and the care that needs to be taken in guarding it appropriately.

    I don’t understand how someone could not see the big ball of hay getting ready to exit a car.

    Peace, Love and Chocolate
