Research Academic Gives Lectures On “How to be Beyoncé”

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen the phrase “I wish I was Beyoncé” on Twitter or thereabouts. It’s not going to happen of course but clearly her influence in pop culture is strong enough to warrant such widespread emulation. This admiration hasn’t gone unnoticed, however, as a postdoctoral research associate (Madison Moore) from King’s College London has started a public seminar entitled “How to be Beyoncé”. Moore gives tips on how to replicate Beyoncé’s success and delves into her stance within pop culture alongside Moore’s own research. “I’m all about taking popular culture seriously,” he said. “I believe you can take any pop cultural text and open it up and see what’s happening on the inside.”
