Beyoncé Toyota Center July 15, 2013
Beyoncé is on another level, and this is something we take for granted. It's easy to forget with this current crop of pop divas just how long she's been around: "Crazy In Love" hit No. 1 in 2003 back when Lady Gaga was only 17, Taylor Swift only 13.
But her greatness is not in longevity but in pure talent. Watching her onstage is watching a master at work: it almost becomes mundane because it looks too easy.
What's scary is not that someone this gifted exists -- we all know and understand that there are exceptionally talented folks out there. What's scary is that Beyoncé knows just how talented she is.
Monday night Beyoncé came home to Houston, and much like the woman herself, it was on another level.
