If you're sitting around criticizing Beyoncé for not dancing more during her 3-hour 'Renaissance' set, you're the problem
Beyoncé kicked off her world tour Wednesday night to the delight of the Beyhive.
A tiny group of critics, though, claimed the singer had a "lack of energy" in her three-hour set.
I'm going to make this short because I need to get back to celebrating my girl, the mother of the house herself, Beyoncé, now that she's back on tour.
But for those of you who activated your Twitter fingers to say that Beyoncé isn't dancing hard enough for you, I'm talking to you. Yes, you. I say this with all of the love on Beyoncé's internet: Stop it.
I didn't even want to watch the initial grainy cell-phone footage coming out of Stockholm, Sweden, Bey's first stop on her 57-city Renaissance World Tour. I plan to see her for myself when she comes to the New York area in June, and in a world of spoilers, I wanted to protect my own experience when I entered the ballroom.
But I couldn't ignore the excitement, and there was a lot of it — along with a tiny contingent of detractors who complained that Beyoncé had a "lack of energy" onstage.

The Beyhive was quick to point to a months-long rumor that Beyoncé was performing despite a knee injury or foot surgery — the rumor, like Jello, never being firm enough to make much of it.
Others suggested Bey was wearing heavy costumes onstage at Stockholm's Friends Arena that prevented her from dancing full-out.
But other clips showed Beyoncé doing The Thing. She vogued, fixed her "hurr" with an epic flip, rode the Renaissance horse, flew in the air — again — and did something I can't even explain with a robot because (hello!) I need to see the show.

The problem with being the best performer of your generation since Michael Jackson — let's not deny it — is that it becomes harder to top yourself.
From what I've seen in all of this cell-phone-camera footage, Bey did that.
Beyoncé has given us so much: She's sung until a bird gracefully flew into her hand; or on a floating stage as it glided across football stadiums; or balanced on a chair as it went from upright to 90 degrees — while carrying her unborn twins, no less. She has stomped in a pool, to the beat, with Kendrick Lamar; and danced in a waterfall next to Kelly and Michelle during her Destiny Fulfilled tour.
All while giving you looks, choreography, and vocals.
If you want Bey to dance full-out for three hours straight, you go first.
