first daughter at 23, and frankly, I was just young and uneducated about the benefits

In part 4 of the mini BTS featurettes being released to promote Beyonce’s new self-titled album and videos, Beyonce explores her thoughts on breastfeeding, sexuality, and body image.
I thought a lot of what she said was interesting. I don’t necessarily agree with her views on “getting your body back” after baby, but the thoughts about the importance of embracing your sexuality and your individuality after you become a mother were spot on.

The photo shows the large family with newest member, Kieran Romney, sitting on the knee of his grandfather, Mitt Romney.
Not really news-worthy…except Kieran is adopted, and happens to be black. Apparently, the Melissa Harris-Perry Show finds this to be news worthy.
