With rumors of infidelity, pregnancy, and we can’t forget that now famous elevator video, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have had one headline worthy and packed summer which also included that little “On the Run” Tour which is where talks of a potential break-up stemmed from.
Like it was reported months ago, the power couple had decided to film their Paris shows at the Stade de France this past weekend (Sept. 12 and 13) for an HBO special titled, On the Run: Beyoncé and Jay-Z. In conjunction with the special which is slated to premiere this Saturday, Sept. 20, the duo have teamed up with director Dikayl Rimmasch to release a series of cinematic short films.
The three-part series is titled Bang Bang (not to be confused with the Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj collaboration) and heavily draws inspiration from Bonnie and Clyde. The series portrays the performers as the famed outlaws which we all know the two like since their first collaboration was called “’03 Bonnie and Clyde” and their tour was named “On the Run.”
In an interview Rimmasch expressed what the couple were trying to portray int eh video saying, “We’re not trying to do this literally, it’s not that we’re Bonnie and Clyde. We’re on the run from everything. On the run from becoming a cliche. On the run from doing the same thing again.”
But when you’re banking as much as you are for these shows, it’s kind of hard to do the same thing again.
