02 Feb Why Beyonce’s Pregnancy was Exactly the News I Needed
by Marisa Torrieri Bloom
With all of the political turmoil since the inauguration, writing blogs for Rockmommy felt indulgent. So I put blogging on hold … pretty much for most of January. I marched for women in New York on January 21, and did my patriotic duty by joining political groups that aligned with my beliefs.
But I am a journalist, and so, I feel an obligation to return to the keyboard. To write for all rockmommies who need a cool record review or an inspirational interview to get through their days and feel good again.
I have Beyonce to credit for reigniting my spark.
Yesterday, when the pop-rock mama released that gorgeous, ethereal pregnancy photo and announced she was expecting twins, it couldn’t have come at a better time. Pregnancy is so beautiful, and it is a joy to see her glowing again. After falling in love with her last album “Lemonade,” I came to more intimately understand her marital and personal struggles. Today, Beyonce is moving beyond the challenges of her past, and showing all of us that even in an era of dismal news and discrimination, there is beauty and goodness.
We can’t wait to see your new little babies.
