That you are not going to destroy this imperialist white supremacist capitalist patriarchy by creating your own version of it, even if it serves you to make lots and lots of money, because I really have been challenging people to think about would we be at all interested in Beyoncé she wasn’t so rich, because I don’t think you can separate her class power and the wealth from people’s fascination with her.
