Mrs. Carter on the other hand had the exact opposite problem. Beyonce's eponymous album, tells the story of a Michael Jackson style tragedy. Beyonce exposes with more detail then expected what it is like to be her, to be both Eve and Mary. She expresses how it feels to be a sex object haunted and tortured to be pretty and silent.
