I wonder how often Beyonce remembers and regrets being in Austin Powers in Goldmember

@Juju I mean, it's still better than the live action Lion King but no no Julia nooo

@erinbee I don't like the music, I'm sorry! I know I should but... meh. But I do like Austin Powers because I'm a terrible person with bad taste.

@earthtopus Haha, or under duress

She was paid what the average worker would consider an obscene amount, but who hasn't done something they later felt gross about for money? ✨Lessons in Capitalism✨

@erinbee the Michael-Caine-about-Jaws-IV "I have never seen it, but by all accounts it is terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific" perspective doesn't seem any unlikelier than "probably feels gross about it now"

@earthtopus Absolutely. But there's also a difference between being in a film with the nadir of special effects, and being in something that had so many weird racist moments even by 2002 standards

@erinbee clearly someone needs to ask her in an interview or as material for a book, so we can cease speculating :)
