The White Girl’s Guide to Listening to #Lemonade

I greatly enjoy Beyoncé’s new album and am seeing her in concert on Monday, so here is my guide to how to listen to her new album #Lemonade if you, like myself, are a white girl:

Step 1: Watch the visual album and/or listen to the tracks on Tidal or iTunes, etc.

Step 2: Decide whether or not you like it. If you do like it, keep listening to it and feel free to tell people that you enjoyed it! If you do not like it, you do not have to keep listening to it and can listen to something else, or watch Netflix or have a beer or something.

Step 4: Refrain from writing any lengthy think-pieces about Lemonade on the internet with your special white-girl perspective or bemoaning about how it’s for black women and not for you specifically because no one needs that, nor do they care.

Step 5: That’s it. Congrats! You have successfully listened to Lemonade as a white girl!

Step 6 (Optional): If desired, drink a glass of actual lemonade and enjoy that, because lemonade the drink is actually quite refreshing and delicious.

You’re welcome.
