Standing on the Shoulders of GiantsI think Beyonce did.
And she has never claimed otherwise.
I am an utter fan of Fosse and Verdon and of Beyonce and had no idea she was actually carefully standing on the shoulders of giants.
Culture, when it works, is SO sweet. It makes all of the rest of us so much happier people. I know Fosse and Ms. Knowles both do that for me.
