Eat Cake Like a Boss by Rachael Rebus

“This painting shows Beyonce in the position if Tina Turner’s album cover, Private Dancer. The text, “EAT CAKE LIKE A BOSS,” refers to Beyoncé identifying as a modern day feminist but shorty after preceeded to rap along with Jay-Z’s lyric “I’m Ike Turner, turn up/Baby know I don’t play/Now eat the cake, Anna Mae”, a reference to a moment of domestic abuse displayed in the Tina Turner biopic What’s Love Got ToDo With It when Ike forced Tina (who was born Anna Mae) to eat cake by shoving it into her face, and proceeded to assault an employee who tried to help her.”
