Beyonce startled the universe yesterday, releasing unannounced a new ‘7/11’ video that has gained 4 million more views on YouTube in 12 hours. The video features Bey and her posse dancing around as if jammin’ at a slumber party. ‘7/11’ and another new track called ‘Ring Off’ are both featured on the ‘Beyonce Platinum Box Set’ on Monday.
Beyonce is also nominated for Artist of the Year at the 2014 American Music Awards (AMAs), which will be broadcast live from the Nokia Theater LA tomorrow night, Sunday, November 23, 2014.
Forgive me for going all serious on readers this moment, but watching Beyonce’s ‘7/11’, my only response was ‘let’s move’! Any kind of movement — because our good health and longevity depend on it. Now Beyonce has all the right moves — but the casual, spontaneous nature of this dance routine says ‘anything goes’. So get your booty movin’, arms flailing and don’t worry about making an idiot of yourself.
Get A Move On
Researchers in Germany took a look at 43 observational studies that analyzed 4 million people’s answers to questions about how much they sat each day and incidences of cancer. “The researchers examined close to 70,000 cancer cases and found that sitting is associated with a 24% increased risk of colon cancer, a 32% increased risk of endometrial cancer, and a 21% increased risk of lung cancer,” reports QUARTZ.
The really bad news is that your nightly trip to the gym isn’t enough to undue the damage to your body of sitting all day. Meeting your daily activity requirements working up an intense gym sweat or yoga workout is not enough.
