Earlier we learned about Beyonce’s new album, I Am…Sasha Fierce, but did you know that Sasha is also her on-stage alter-ego? Uh huh. Beyonce has reached that pinnacle of self-important diva-hood that her ego can no longer be contained in one body. Usa Magazine reports,
“I have someone else that takes over when it’s time for me to work,” she tells Reuters. “When I’m on stage, this alter ego that I’ve created kind of protects me and who I really am.”
She adds, “Sasha Fierce is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken side and more glamorous side that comes out when I’m working and when I’m on the stage.”
The singer, 27, has said there are “things I do when performing I would never do normally.”
As “Sasha,” she recently told October’s British Marie Claire, “I have out-of-body experiences. If I cut my leg, if I fall, I don’t even feel it. I’m so fearless, I’m not aware of my face or my body.”
Oookay, freakazoid. That might fall under the category of “Not to Share”. I also believe alter-ego is another word for “being high on psychotropic drugs”, but that’s totally speculation. I suggest testing her theory by throwing a nice roundhouse kick to the face the next time she feels fierce. Any takers?
