For the Beyhive, today is a sacred day, right up there with solemn religious holidays and family birthdays and anniversaries. Social media lit up with well wishes and memories of Queen Bey — and some celebs got in on the fun, too. Check out some of our favorite #BeyDay celebrations below.
Did you know that Beyoncé is a Virgo? If you didn't know that Beyoncé is a Virgo, don't worry, because every Virgo will tell you that Beyoncé is a Virgo.
The only thing Virgos love more than the Container Store is talking about how Beyoncé is a Virgo. As the maiden of the zodiac, Virgos are hardworking, resourceful, and devoted to their craft. They are perfectionists who will accept nothing less than excellence — and they deliver. Virgos are also low-key freaks in the sheets. All of these traits describe Beyoncé to a B!
Happy birthday, Beyoncé, and long may you reign!
We are all so lucky to share a planet with Beyoncé while she's at the height of her career. And each of her albums gets progressively better — she's truly an artist who has found her five-octave voice, and uses it to lift up others. Beyoncé has taught us that motherhood and sexuality are not mutually exclusive; she's taught us that there's no cutting corners on the way to excellence; and most of all, she's taught us that being successful doesn't come at the cost of someone else being unsuccessful. The world is richer because Beyoncé is in it. Happy 9-4-8-1!
