Have you noticed that Beyoncé’s ‘7/11’ is pretty much just a Youtube video?
Media theorist Henry Jenkins wrote in Textual Poachers: Television Fans and Participatory Culture that fans of popular cultural texts make and circulate their own versions of popular media to show their love and talk back to their icons but to also highlight their own creativity. In the Youtube era, uploading parodies of popular videos has never been as fast or as easy. So, queens, it was only a matter of time before a couple fabulous divas decided to upload their own versions of ‘7/11,’ Beyoncé’s most viral video sensation since “Single Ladies.”
‘7/11’ works because it is so weird! Knee pads doe? With that, which of the following seven parodies takes it there???
1. Todrick Hall
3. Amélie Warnault
4. Lyric London
5. The Factory
