The Popdust Files: beyonce, bohemian rhapsody

The latest way that Beyonce Knowles is Not Like Us: she’s apparently never wasted afternoons doing one-woman “Bohemian Rhapsody” karaoke. (We know you have. We also know we have.) The song was on the setlist at a recent concert in Nice to warmup for her Glastonbury, England show, and two words in it have now caused a miniature Internet uproar. Because what can’t cause one?

You can’t see B in this video, but we chose it anyway because for once all the fans obnoxiously singing along have a purpose–you can clearly hear their atonal “put a gun against his head,” whereas Beyonce’s putting a bullet to his head. Ineffective! But also not really that big of a flub, and unlike at least 50 percent of people who’ve ever covered “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Beyonce can sing. And her performances of Prince’s “The Beautiful Ones” and Kings of Leon’s “Sex on Fire” went off without transpositions. Watch them below:

In other videos that haven’t been taken down yet (Beyonce’s working her hardest in this respect), B also did a Destiny’s Child medley, followed by “Telephone” (warning: motion-sickness-inducing footage):

The description of the Grant Notice is “NASAs Office of Education, Integration Division, Informal Education Program, in cooperation with NASAs Offices of Communications and Chief Technologist and Mission Directorates (e.g., Aeronautics Research, Exploration Systems, Science, and Space Operations), solicits proposals for uniquely NASA informal education projects, exhibits and/or partnerships with K-12 schools to inspire science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics (STEM) learning. This NRA or solicitation seeks projects featuring NASA-themed content in space exploration, aeronautics, space science, Earth science, or microgravity, or a combination of these topics to support NASA education outcomes. The Mission Directorates cooperating with this NRA have identified content priorities aligned with the NASA Strategic Plan. Consult Section IV. Technical Content Description for Mission Directorate priorities. Proposals also should address substantiated (e.g., through an existing needs assessment) national, regional or local educational needs or challenges and offer solutions with potential for significant impact. Proposed projects should address the NASA Education Strategic Coordination Frameworks Outcome 3, which relates to formal and informal education partnerships. Partnerships with K-12 schools to support inquiry-based education are highly encouraged. Partnerships with Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCU) and other minority serving institutions are highly encouraged. See Appendix C of this NRA for partnership discussion. Examples of eligible projects include but are not limited to: exhibits (permanent, traveling, or virtual); STEM programming serving educators, students, youth, parents, and the general public; STEM programming for informal education providers and staff professional development (e.g., youth groups, out-of-school-time programs, youth group leaders, workshop or activity leaders, curriculum developers, docent managers, exhibit designers, library professionals, community education leaders, education and public outreach professionals); informal learning research in STEM, informal education programs, data usage and analysis; curriculum support for informal science education, technology development, performing arts, or activities that are focused on targeted populations, such as women, minorities, and persons with disabilities. Grantee institutions have the responsibility for budgeting and documenting compliance with Code of Federal Regulations, 14 CFR1230, commonly referred to as the Common Rule for the Protection of Human Subjects. Research to develop NASA-themed exhibits, programs, curriculum products, etc., may involve full human subjects review through an Institutional Review Board (IRB) or it may be exempt. An IRB also certifies when research is exempt.” in our site duns number lookup
