The Louvre: Who Did It Better?
I just watched Beyoncé and Jay-Z's "Apes---" video for the first time. The entire video was shot at the Louvre in Paris, France. Since I had just visited the world famous museum a few months ago, I watched the video closely to see if I could spot any of the pieces of artwork that I had seen firsthand. It turned into a fun game of "Who Did It Better?" between myself and the Carters.
Above is my picture with the Mona Lisa vs. Beyoncé and Jay-Z's pic with the mysterious lady. I want to say I won this battle.

Next up was my picture with the Venus de Milo. I'm looking just a tad touristy with the headphones on and the self-guided tour gear. It doesn't help that Jay and Bey got some pretty cool lighting to add to the flavor of the room. Point goes to the power couple.

The Sphinx is next up on our tour of the Louvre. Jay-Z is standing next to Beyoncé. I'm standing next to my mom. We'll give the point to Jay and Bey for the very cool red lighting in the room, plus Jay is wearing a jacket borrowed from me.

We wrap up our tour of the Louvre with the freestyle round. Contestants can submit a photo of themselves from anywhere in the Louvre. I found this sculpture that shows that the people of Ancient Greece actually DID enjoy taking selfies. Pretty clever, huh? Yeah, I thought so, too....until I found out that Beyoncé posted a picture of herself doing the EXACT SAME THING--FOUR YEARS before I did.
Game, set, match: Beyoncé.
