This weekend was the annual Budweiser Made In America Festival in Philadelphia with headliners like Death Cab For Cutie, Modest Mouse and Big Sean. But one performance stood out above the rest when Beyoncé took the stage and brought down the house with a recorded speech made by UFC champion and actress Ronda Rousey as an intro to her song, "Diva." Rousey's words flashed on the giant screen above the stage as the recording played saying:
I have this one term for the kind of woman that my mother raised me to not be. And I call it ‘Do Nothing B*tch.’ Or I call it a DNB a lot of the time. The kind of chick that just tries to be pretty and be taken care of by somebody else. That’s why I think it’s hilarious when people say my body looks masculine or something like that.I’m just like, ‘Listen, just because my body was developed for a purpose other than f*cking millionaires doesn’t mean it’s masculine.’ I think it’s femininely badass as f*ck. Because there’s not a single muscle on my body that isn’t for a purpose. Because I’m not a Do Nothing B*tch.
Ronda Rousey shot to fame as the first (and current) Women's UFC Bantamweight Champion. She also appeared in Fast And Furious 7, going toe-to-toe with Michelle Rodriguez in an incredible fight scene that has to rank among the best of the entire franchise. The original speech was recorded in an interview on the second episode of the UFC 190 Embedded web series as Rousey was about to face Bethe Correia in a fight.
Rousey's words echoed in the UFC world and for women everywhere, including the 'Queen B' herself, apparently. And Rousey's reaction to the tribute seems pretty favorable, she shared an image to her Instagram of a screen shot of the song "Diva" playing with the hashtag, "trafficjamin". UFC President, Dana White tweeted out Beyoncé's performance on Sunday.https://twitter.com/danawhite/status/640423895326048256
