Breaking From Above: The Final Episodes
The last two episodes of Breaking From Above aired tonight. (Watch ALL the episodes here, if you missed any!)
"I wanna see which of the girls really wanna be in this band." - Mathew Knowles
In episode five, Mathew Knowles gathered together all the coaches the girls have worked with so far -- on fitness, vocals, choreography, and style -- and asked their opinions of each girl. I wonder what it was like for the girls to watch this episode and hear all the harsh things the coaches had to say about them.
In episode six, Mathew set up a big photo shoot for From Above. When the photographer started shouting random instructions like "Look sexy!" at the girls, I felt so lucky that I work from home. After the photo shoot, Mathew brought in choreographer Frank Gatson and asked for his help looking through the photos and evaluating each girl's body, moves, and voice. Throughout this show, I've been wondering if Mathew was as harsh on the girls of Destiny's Child -- especially Beyoncé -- as he is to these girls.
Do you have anyone in your life as critical as Mathew Knowles? Do you find it motivating, or does it beat you down and crush your spirit?
After watching what the girls went through, would you want to participate in a pop star boot camp? (I'd love to take voice lessons and dance classes and have a fitness coach, but I don't think I could handle the intensity of working with Mathew.)
