Throw Your Hands Up inthe AIR

Imagine having a day so rushed and out-of-control, you flag down a Police Vehicle in the mistaken impression it is the CAB YOU NEED! Imagine having a day so cruising down the Giant Slalom of Life missing a ski you have no make-up on, even though, at the minimum, by the time you hit Chicago Ave. at least a little mascara has landed on your lashes because, after all, definition is a MUST – Lip Liner or Bust…

But you have none of that this day.

You DO have 4-day-old Hair that is letting you down now that you know

THIS will be the Day that one of your dreams might come true…

This will be the day you get to go stand on a stool for 90 minutes above a crowd of 3000 people waiting for HER to arrive, chatting it up with HER personal sound guy who is spinning off a playlist using the same iPod you have, who slips you an audio line directly off his box. Oh, did you mentions SHE is the CKS House Diva? You do a happy Dance, never leaving the stool, even though by this time your right foot is totally asleep…


YOU do a Happy Hat Dance and go F*it and put on your HAT! By gum, that hat has more color than will ever be ALLOWED in your Makeup Palette and even your hair can pretend to look normal when it’s actually under something…

And funny thing is – SHE didn’t mind at all…

As if! – like she could see ANYTHING beyond the thousands
of flashes going OFF! Hi, Jamie!!!


BEYONCE: Beautiful – Elegant – Youthful – Original – NICE! – Charming – Enchanting!

    YUmmmmmmmm Kureyon! Looks like fun though. How the hell do you get everything done in a day that you do? Huh? Are you Superwoman? I think you need to felt a hat with a big S on it. Or SBM.

    Good morning :)

    Found your blog by way of Becky’s. How cool that you got to photograph Beyonce! Isn’t she beautiful? I must say you are looking very adorable in that hat as well.

    OH! How I longed to give Ms. Beyonce the hat! The only thing standing between me and that fate (besides being absolutely forbidden to do such nonsense) was a 6 foot 8 300+ pound BODYGUARD, the likes of which I’ve never seen. He was blocking our view for quite awhile (I don’t think he really knew that he was as BIG AS A BARN from behind – you know – you never do get to see yourself leaving the room) and the PR lady was too chicken to ask him to move. (Really, just what is her job anyway, HuH?)

    You know what’s coming here, right? I reached out and touched his GINOURMOUS ARM with my toothpick sized index finger and said, “Hey, mister, couldya…?” I was scorched by his Glare, but kindly he moved about 6 inches so I could get some nice ground level shots of the signing…
