Beyonce Is All About Girl Power In Her Bonkers “Run The World (Girls)” Video

Let’s forget for the moment that Beyonce’s “Run The World (Girls)”, the lead single from her forthcoming album 4, kinda bombed on the charts, and let’s enjoy the video for what it is… er, what is this, exactly? In the epic Francis Lawrence-directed clip (which premiered on American Idol Wednesday night), there are twin beasts (hyenas?) leashed in chains, women nailed on crosses, cars exploding and choreography that might even rival the moves in “Single Ladies”. Don’t believe us? See for yourself after the jump.
