Beyoncé’s “Grown Woman” Gets An Alternate Video: Watch


Surprise! (Again!)

There’s no doubt that Beyoncé has a lot of fans, and those fans are a crafty bunch — literally. A quick search on Etsy reveals everything from Yoncé iPhone cases to homemade “Surfbort” t-shirts to “Flawless” necklaces to Queen Bey football jerseys. But while her Hive are an ingenious bunch, none can rival the Queen herself when it comes to a creative streak.

Not only did Beyoncé release a surprise visual album with videos for every iTunes-crashing track, but now she’s gone and made an alternate video for the Beyoncé bonus video “Grown Woman.” Like she sings: She’s a grown woman. She can do whatever she wants.

The alternate video for the Timbaland-produced track takes Beyoncé’s original concept for her video — pairing home movies with her grown-up self — and transforms it by adding exuberantly animated doodles and extra bling while still leaving baby Bey and cute Kelly Rowland lip-syncing.

Here’s the alternate video:
