“BK is from Texas”, but now Beyonce Knowles is an honorary Brooklynite. B was there on Friday for the opening of the Beyonce Cosmetology Center at a residential substance abuse treatment center. She spent time in Brooklyn preparing for the role of Etta James in 2008′s “Cadillac Records”, and obviously has developed some love for the place.
Not only has she spent time there preparing for her many projects, but according to Borough President Marty Markowitz, Beyonce is a “Brooklynite by marriage and moxie”. And by marriage, Marty is referring to her badass, money-makin husband, Jay-Z, who hails from the Bed Stuy area of Brooklyn. By moxie, he means her incredible ass.
If I’m from Texas and currently chill in Brooklyn, does that make me Beyonce? Sshwing, I’d say so.
