As it turns out, Monday’s Labor Day holiday was also another very special day: It was Beyoncé’s birthday. Who knew?! And all the heavy hitters got in “formation,” just like the singer did in her music video for the song of the same name.
Beyoncé’s mom, her daughter, her former bandmates in Destiny’s Child, Serena Williams, and others donned the iconic look “Queen Bey” made popular in the music video for Formation, decried as an anti-cop anthem. Yes, the very same song she performed at the Super Bowl which was highly criticized as pro-Black Panther.
But blowing the sycophants’ minds with her appearance in the birthday wish to the 36-year-old pop artist was former first lady Michelle Obama. A fan-made Twitter account for the star posted the pics:
And then the drooling on Twitter:
A HuffPost editor added:
Even CNN couldn’t contain its excitement for Mrs. Obama’s participation in #BeyDay, whose headline screamed, “Michelle Obama channeling Beyoncé in a birthday tribute is all you need today:”
But it was the photo of former First Lady Michelle Obama sporting Beyoncé's twin braids and wide-brimmed black hat that gave the internet its whole life, prompting one person to tweet "Michelle Obama paying tribute to Beyoncé cleared my skin, watered my crops and added 20 years to my life."
No mention of the songs Black Lives Matter imagery, just good, old-fashioned praise for CNN's favorite first lady.
