The following comes from Nicole’s official Facebook page:
People keep asking me if I’m serious about my respect and admiration for Beyonce. of course I am! the woman is amazing. she’s a prime example of the female empowerment we teach at Rock Camp for Girls. support, uplift and encourage one another. There’s plenty of room for all of us. The fact that she has an all female band (and had Destiny’s Child perform with her at the superbowl) proves that she is confident and secure enough in herself to know that she doesn’t need to compete. it’s all about empowering one another. She’s a power house of a singer and her band is super solid. Also, i have no problem with women (or men) feeling and looking good/sexy on stage so long as they have the talent to back it up. I think people should dress in whatever way makes them feel confident on stage, whether it’s jeans/t-shirt or heels/short skirt. if you are being authentic to yourself, performing with integrity and giving it your all, you have my support. That’s what feminism in the entertainment industry means to me. Thank you, Beyonce for being such a badass.
