Beyoncé Giving The Look To A Woman Leaning Over Her To Talk To Jay-Z Is Every WOC Shutting The Becky Down

This week, the world watched Donald Trump, unfortunate president of the United States, make a visit to the Royal family in England. It’s been a bit of clunky road, but he and Ivanka have taken up some pretty important lessons on how to treat the queen. Do not touch the queen, do not turn your back on the queen and for the love of god caller her Queen or your Highness only.

Now, in case you didn’t know, these practices apply to our very own sovereign in the U.S., Queen Beyoncé, as well. And when it comes to our queen, Beckys — particularly ones who have good hair and eyes for Hov — a set of very specific procedures apply.

#1 No LEANING across the queen to talk to her mans. Not ever.

Not EVER.

But Nicole Curran, wife of the Golden State Warriors’ owner had clearly failed to be informed of these facts. Today she knows.

Recently Curran caught eyes when she appeared courtside beside Beyoncé and Jay-Z for Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

The video which was posted to Twitter by ESPN, shows Beyoncé watching as Curran leans over her to talk to Jay-Z. The thing is…

ONE DOES NOT SIMPLY LEAN ACROSS A QUEEN, JAN.

Clearly, agitated, Beyoncé’s face goes blank before she gives Curran The Look that so many women of color know well.

It’s the one we’ve been getting from our moms at parties since day 1 and have put into practice ourselves. It’s the one we got when we were younger and caught cutting up / disgracing the family name at a party. The one we got when we had to ask if we could sleepover… at age 24. And the same one we deliver when a Becky comes too close to our man.

Somehow, it can spark a fire and simultaneously put one out while also making you pee yourself.

Latinas of Twitter were also unimpressed by Curran’s behavior and were quick to acknowledge their experience of having to use The Look in similar situations

Beyoncé’s face is literally all of us who have ever had to step up to a woman at a club, bar, BBQ, family party and let a girl know that the ring on their man’s finger MEANS he’s taken.

It’s also the face, those of us who aren’t married, have given when we know that just our PRESENCE next to our man ought to be enough for a girl to know she needs to not.

Not. Thot.

Of course, Curran has said that her intention was much more innocent than we’ve all assumed.

Curran, who has since deleted her Instagram account because of online bullying, told Ramona Shelburne of ESPN that in the moment gone viral, she was simply asking Jay-Z and Beyoncé if they wanted drinks.

BTW: Jay-Z ordered vodka soda while Bey asked for water. That classy queen.

When it comes to The Look, Michelle Obama also knows what’s up.

Pretty sure we all remember this moment in history when the former First Lady was forced to literally put herself between her husband and former Prime Minister of Denmark Helle Thorning-Schmidt.

Lesson of the day?

Don’t be leaning across queens, girl.

Vanessa Bryant Forced To Respond To ‘Beyond Hurtful’ Comments Made By Her Own Mom On ‘El Gordo y La Flaca’

STEPHEN DUNN / GETTY

Within just nine months, Vanessa Bryant has (like all of us) had to deal with the stress and uncertainty of a pandemic, racial crisis and injustice, and the threats of unstable political leadership. She has also had to deal with the almighty devastation of losing her husband and daughter on the same day. You think this would be enough to ensure that she receives only sympathy, support, and light during this time but not so.

Recently, the wife of the late basketball great Kobe Bryant is dealing with negative claims taken to the press by her own mother.

In an interview with Univision, Bryant’s mother Sofia Laine claimed her daughter had kicked her out of her home.

Appearing on “El Gordo y La Flaca,” Laine claimed that her 38-year-old daughter had forced her out of a family home and made her return the car she used.

In a statement to People, Bryant defended herself saying “My husband and daughter passed away unexpectedly, and yet my mom has the audacity to do an interview on TV talking negatively about me while shedding tears about a car and home that wasn’t in her name.”

“She has removed all her diamond jewelry, emptied her apartment that I provide, and put the furniture in storage to appear as though she is without support,” Bryant went onto claim. “My husband and I have financially supported her over the past 20 years, and I continue to do so, in addition to her monthly alimony.”

Bryant went onto add that “contrary to previous reports, she has not been physically present or emotionally supportive for my daughters and me after my husband and daughter passed away. Going forward, I see what is most important to my mom and it is beyond hurtful. I hope this public airing of our personal relations will stop here.”

Bryant lost her husband, the late NBA star, and the couple’s second-oldest daughter Gianna in a tragic helicopter crash in January.

The crash claimed the lives of seven other people including Payton Chester, 13, Sarah Chester, 46, Alyssa Altobelli, 14,Keri Altobelli, 46, John Altobelli, 56, Christina Mauser, 38, and the helicopter’s pilot Ara Zobayan, 50.

Latinas Talk About Love At First Sight

Latinas Talk About Love At First Sight

Miramax

In an infamous scene in the 1992 book Like Water for Chocolate, the novel’s main characters Tita and Pedro swear their undying love for each other within minutes of first meeting. Just like that, they experienced love at first sight. Stories all throughout history have detailed the romantic personal experience of an instant and ultimately long-lasting romantic attraction for a stranger upon first sight. But how practical— or even true is that really?

We turned to our FIERCE readers to see just how prevalent this phenomenon is.

In a post to our Instagram page we asked Latinas for their love at first love stories.

And scavenged around Reddit for good measure. Check out what we discovered below!

“Yes. I had briefly met him before but it was the first time I ever really noticed him. We had a whirlwind romance and then he left to take a job in Europe. We kept in touch for a few years but never saw each other again. He is the gold standard I judge men by.” –
adorableadelita

“YES with my dog the second I saw him I knew he was the one!! I’ve had him for 17years now and we are happily ever after.”- virgok1

“Yes but I’m just not brave enough to tell them they’re beautiful tho, most incredible smile I’ve ever seen the most captivating set of eyes I’ve ever looked into. But well love from afar right?” –ta_ta1009

“Yes. And it was delicious, I’ll never forget those Tacos dorados. My one and only.”- funkycold___medina

“Yes! I never knew love could fill your heart like that so instantly and so completely! It was the first time I ever saw my niece! Best feeling in the world!”- yesi_lo

“Not in love but in strong lust.” – magnetic67

“Yes! And we just got married during the pandemic (very interesting way how we got married).”-21djenne

“Just when I first laid eyes 👀 on the paletero in my neighborhood. Jokes aside I love that man, he’s so sweet.”- dreathunder

“Yup met mine when I was 17 yrs old and knew I would marry them. Here we are 18 years later and still together.” –elizabeth_pearl

“We were both 18 going on 19. He was a second year science student, I was a fresh faced firstie at a brand new University. I was also 95% sure I was lesbian. I saw this goofy ginger at the outdoor movie theatre, he had Styrofoam strapped to his head and declared himself Julius Ceasar, and gave me the biggest and most genuine smile. When he asked my name, it was a genuine want not just a question you ask to fill time. My heart squeezed a bit, and we kept eye contact for a bit too long before we both turned back to the screen. The next day we ended up sitting across from eachother in the cafeteria, and as soon as I saw him sitting there with a grin on his gorgeous face I knew I could love him. We were attached at the hip for at least 8 hours every day for a month, it was like a need to be around eachother, a magnetic pull and attraction. We started dating after a few weeks. We both fell in love quickly. I never believed in love at first sight, but we fit together perfectly in every way and every day, even now as we’re 20 with a lot of growth and ‘relationship strainers’ under our belts there hasn’t been a day that’s gone by where I don’t think of him and fall further in love. We’ve fought a bit, met eachothers families, he’s held my hand in the hospital and I’ve held his. We’ve had the kids talk, marriage talk, finances talk, and we’re moving in together this summer. It’s also pretty great that we have the same taste in women. I have never been happier, and he tells me the same.”-HelloSchrodi

“We met at work, when we both locked eyes we were drawn to each other. After a week of flirting with each other and staring into her beautiful blue eyes, she actually asked ME out. We dated for 8 years and got engaged; being madly in love is perfection. She walked down the aisle about 13 months after she accepted my proposal. She gave birth to her first child 10 months later, and had her second 2 years after that. She’s very happy in her life. Kind of wished she married me instead of the dickhead she met a month after leaving me.” –UrMomLikesMine

“It was a whirlwind. Can’t really explain it. Distance and heavy workloads on both our parts (we couldn’t see each other at all one year) made us end it. Still best friends, still in a sort of a platonic bond. We’ve both seen other people since then (I’ve just had a bad experience), but I don’t think I’ve ever felt that kind of… ease around someone until months have passed. When she moves here in a few years, who knows? She never will, but if she asked me to wait. I’d say yes in a heasrtbeat.” –ionised

“Yes… now married 10 years.” – juju_bees_mommy

“Well for me it wasn’t at first sight. But for him it was. Within the first week he knew I would be the one he was going to marry and spend his life with. My feelings grew quickly also and we knew we had met our soul mate very quickly. We are doing great. He’s saving up for an engagement ring, both support eachother in our respective fields (me in tattoo artistry and him in filmmaking). Once our financial situation is in order we plan to move to Seattle. I have never been so in love and I don’t regret it for a second.”- BigHeroDicks
