Beyoncé made a return to the stage in a big way at her sold-out show at Philadelphia's Made in America Festival over the Labour Day weekend, but not before preaching feminism.

The singer played an audio clip of MMA fighter Ronda Rousey speaking about her (amazing) body and how she is not a "do-nothing bitch" (are you all listening?).

"Just because my body was developed for a purpose other than f-cking millionaires doesn't mean it's masculine," Ronda said in a July episode of UFC 190 Embedded vlog series. "I think it's femininely badass as f-ck, because there's not a single muscle on my body that isn't for a purpose. Because I'm not a do-nothing bitch."

Yes to everything. Naturally, Queen Bey was struck by the message and she celebrated it with a performance of Diva.
