Lounge singer Beyoncé, 29, performed during the 2nd of her four sold out concerts at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City last night. Beyoncé, whom industry insiders say is the nicest narcissist they have ever met, paused onstage to admire her own image in artwork handed to her by a fan.
By sheer coincidence, the above photo of Beyoncé is almost an exact rendition of paintings of the Greek mythological figure Narcissus, an intensely beautiful boy who was doomed to love only his own reflection for the rest of his life after he spurned the advances of an angel. Narcissus stared at his own reflection for so long that he neglected food and drink. He ultimately died of starvation. (This is also where the word narcissist is derived from, in case you didn’t make the connection.)
