I Am… Sasha Fierce is the third studio album by American recording artist Beyoncé. It was released on November 15, 2008, by Music World Entertainment and Columbia Records. This where the public saw the birth of her alter-ego Sasha Fierce and earned a record-setting six Grammy Awards in 2010.
“I remember right before I performed I raised my hands up and it was kind of the first time I felt something else come into me. And I knew that was going to be my coming out night.”
Sasha Fierce is Born
“Crazy in Love” was her debut solo single, featuring Jay-Z. Later, they were married without publicity, on April 4, 2008. This was Beyoncé’s first solo single all her previous singles had been recorded and released with Destiny’s Child.
“Sasha Fierce was born when I did ‘Crazy in Love.’ People, when they meet me, expect that all the time, but that person is strictly for the stage.” – Beyoncé People Magazine, November 18th, 2008
The video for “Crazy in Love” even depicts the death of Beyoncé and the birth of Sasha Fierce. It starts with a modest Beyoncé in plain clothes. As the video progesses she becomes more stylish and sexuality. Until, Beyoncé is ultimately burned to death in the backseat of a car which explodes. Jay-Z is the one that start the fire. Sasha Fierce is born from the fire and Beyoncé is gone and dead.
“The ‘Fire Philosophy’ is the basis of all Religious Mysteries and all the secret philosophies of the Universe. It is also the underlying principal on which All Secret Occult Brotherhoods are founded. It was taught in the Ancient Mysteries, and, although the knowledge of it has long been lost to the world, it has always been preserved in the Occult Fraternities. The aim of all true initiation, no matter what the name of the Fraternity may be is to know the nature of the Secret Fire that regenerates the world and which renders him who comes into its possession immortal… “- A Rose Cross College R. Swinburne Clymer
NATURA RENOVATUR INTERGRA, which literally means, “By fire, nature is perfectly renewed.”
Now, Beyoncé is reborn as Sasha Fierce. Sasha Fierce remains very sexual and does not return to the plain and more simplistic Beyoncé from the early half of the video.
“I have someone else that takes over when it’s time for me to work, and when I’m on stage, this alter ego I created that kind of protects me and who I really am. Sasha Fierce is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken and more glamorous side that comes out when I’m working and when I’m on the stage.” – Beyonce
“When I’m onstage I’m aggressive and strong and not afraid of my sexuality. The tone of my voice gets different, and I’m fearless. I’m just a different person.” – Beyonce
“I’ve created an alter ego [she refers to her on-stage persona as ‘Sasha’]: things I do when performing I would never do normally. I reveal things about myself that I wouldn’t do in an interview. I have out-of-body experiences [on stage]. If I cut my leg, if I fall, I don’t even feel it. I’m so fearless, I’m not aware of my face or my body.” – Beyonce October 2008 issue of Marie Claire
