Beyoncé fans are noticing something even gayer about Cowboy Carter

· Updated on April 3, 2024

If you’re like literally everyone on planet Earth right now, you’ll have spent most of the past 72 hours listening to, dancing around to, and thinking about Cowboy Carter, Beyoncé’s love letter to country music’s Black roots. And if you haven’t…well, I don’t know what to tell you. You’re missing out. Not just on the music, but on the incredible discourse surrounding it. It hasn’t even been a full week since Cowboy Carter dropped, and already we can find endless TikToks, essays, podcast episodes, and commentary surrounding a work of art that’s both an album and a call to revolution.

But some of the discourse is a lot juicier than the rest. Take, for instance, this glorious TikTok by user @vstreetlove, in which a delightful theory about the Miley Cyrus duet “II MOST WANTED” is developed:

Idk why I said bisexual like that 😆 but I had to put on the right shirt for this to drive the point home 🏳️‍🌈🌈 #beyonce #studyonce #biyonce #wlw #bi #lgbtqia #cowboycarter #actii #beyoncerenaissance #beyoncealbum #beyhive #beyoncé #biyhive #actii #funny #fyp

Wearing what is possibly the best shirt I’ve ever seen, this queer Beyoncé fan lays out the evidence for the duet giving extreme bisexual energy. And honestly…they’ve got an incredibly strong point.

“You’re going to tell me that Miss Queen of Layers, Miss ‘I’m gonna have y’all go look up Black cowboy history ‘cuz y’all don’t know what the hell you’re talking about, isn’t going to know what she’s going by putting a known bisexual on her love duet called ‘II MOST WANTED’?”

I mean, when you put it like that…yeah, that’s giving some pretty strong bisexual vibes.

vstreetlove goes on to explain that not only does Cowboy Carter’s TYRANT also give off some queer vibes, we can’t forget how Renaissance’s COZY rocked our world when Beyoncé started listing off all the colors of the rainbow Progress flag.

“Everyone said that that’s her love letter to the Black queer community,” they explain in the video. “A community that she is obviously part of!” As someone who saw the mind-blowing Renaissance Tour, they go on to explain that Beyoncé had the pink, purple and blue lights—the colors of the bisexual flag—flickering in the background as she performed “COZY” onstage.

“All I’m saying is,” they explain, “this should be as big a thing for our Beyhive community as it is for the Swifties…the Bi-hive? Is that what we’re doing?”

Honestly, truer words have never been spoken. The Bihive is here, and we’re prepared to be just as insufferable as the Gaylors.
