The Cut ran an enlightening new Chelsea Clinton profile this morning, detailing the toll of her mother Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential bid and her efforts to reshape and rebuild her life afterwards. Among the vaguely funny tidbits present in the piece, one stands out: Clinton loved Beyoncé’s Homecoming film, and bristled at JAY-Z’s reaction to his wife’s post-pregnancy weight loss. After watching that scene, Clinton says she told her husband, Marc Mezvinsky: “‘Marc, if that’s ever me, you better have more enthusiasm.’”

She continues: “It wasn’t the ‘I’m so proud of you. That’s amazing,’ that I arguably think any woman deserves, particularly someone who has clearly worked herself body, mind, heart, soul, and spirit to get to that place. Marc was like, ‘Duly noted.’ And I was like, ‘I bet every woman watching this has this sense of ‘She deserves more enthusiasm.’ Marc was like ‘I got it. Can we go back to watching it, please? We’ve talked about it three times in the last 90 seconds.’” Per the profile, this discussion leads to a lengthy discussion from Clinton on “the so-called developing world, where one in 45 women still die in childbirth.” Read The Cut’s full profile on Chelsea Clinton here.
