Get your mind out of the gutter; this is not that kind of site.lol. Word is Beyonce is looking to write and star in a film based on the life of Saartjie “Sarah” Baartman, the famous South African Slave who was exhibited as a freak show attraction in 19th century Europe due to her large buttocks. According to the Sun newspaper, Beyonce has assembled a team of acting coaches and writers to help with the project.
However, it seems not everyone is thrilled about this development. A South African Chief was quoted as saying the pop star “lacks the basic human dignity” to be writing her next film project. Now I don’t know about all that but I love the idea of the woman who actually coined the term “Bootylicious” to play the Bootylicious Saartijie. I honestly can’t think of anybody more qualified.
