Video: Beyonce, "Best Thing I Never Had"

We postulated once that Beyonce was a mini-Michelle Obama, her democratic principles of hard work and love for the people firmly in tact. But B is a modern woman, rife with all kinds of conflicting fantasies, and in her video for "Best Thing I Never Had," she seems keen to emulate more traditional princesses like Kate Middleton and Julia Roberts, women whose smiles, charm and nice hair had them walking down the pop culture aisle, Middleton at Buckingham Palace and Roberts over and over again in romantic comedies. That's fine: the 21st century provides all kinds of options for women. It's nice to see Beyonce playing dress up, checking which shoe (Glass slipper? Sensible stiletto?) fits her best of all.
