Beyoncé Released 11 Minutes of Therapy

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Her therapy? Your therapy? Tomato, tom-ah-to. Beyoncé recapped her year with a short film, covering her ideas on family, feminism, fame, race, and her special definition of humanism in 11 black-and-white minutes.

To feel all the feelings, skip to about 9:20 and listen to her soothing, sleep-inducing narrative until the end. There's fire, Solange, protests, and more. You might even feel changed by a year that wasn't lived by you.
