Even if you're not the biggest Beyoncé fan, I urge you all to watch "Homecoming" on Netflix. The documentary follows Beyoncé and her crew as they prep for what came to be known as Beychella -- aka her headlining Coachella performance last year.
While the majority of the two-hour doc highlights the actual show (both weekends, might I add), where she sang and danced to all of her top songs and even brought her sister, Solange, and Destiny's Child on stage, a good portion of "Homecoming" was dedicated to showcasing the preparation and personal work that the artist put into it. Most notably, she talked about beginning rehearsals very soon after delivering her twins, Rumi and Sir Carter, a pregnancy that affected her body in ways she wasn't anticipating.
"Homecoming" has been called a "towering spectacle of black excellence" -- Beyoncé was, after all, the first black woman to ever headline Coachella. Nuts, I know. In it, she celebrated her culture in the best way she knew how: through empowering music and unbelievable dance.
Hell, it even caught the attention of Michelle Obama!
"Homecoming" also impressed Beyoncé's biggest fan, Mindy Kaling, who decided that she'd try her hand at auditioning to be one of Beyoncé's kick-*ss dancers. Kaling quickly figured out, though, that dancing to 26 songs in a row -- not to mention singing along to them, live -- is no small feat. The issue she found after this "audition tape" is that Beyoncé is literally the only person who can do what Beyoncé does.
Nevertheless, Kaling shook her thing.
Will she have a spot in the ensemble next time Bey headlines a show of that magnitude? Potentially. Should Rumi, Sir Carter and Kaling's daughter Katherine be BFFs while their moms hang out and rehearse? YES.
