A distraction from the dumpster fire that is reality
Now that's what we're talking about.
Sure, we appreciate your Meryl Streeps, your Madonnas, even your Shia LaBeoufs railing against Donald Trump. But if we're honest with each other, that is not what we come to celebrities for.
We can all deny being as shallow as a puddle, but what we want from celebrities is escapism – escape from the dumpster fire that is reality.
And, given that 2017 is a full-on sewage works explosion of reality, any celebrity escapism needed to be supersized: enter, stage right, Beyoncé, announcing on Instagram that she is pregnant.
With twins. In her underwear.
Thank you, Queen Bey. Thank you for coming to save us from ourselves.
Some people will be mean about this photo
That is because some people have no soul.
Yes, it answers the question of what a David LaChapelle filter on Instagram would look like (“Rizzoli meets Snapchat” is how my friend Jess put it).
But have you looked outside?
It’s basically an apocalyptic wasteland out there
With Trump playing a game of chicken with Kim Jong-un on who will attack first, and the ensuring Brexit aftermath that just makes everything seem bleak.
Naturalism is not helpful right now.
We need extreme fabulousness, and Beyoncé kneeling in front of a floral wreath in a veil and her lingerie is pretty much the minimum requirement to get through the next five minutes.
We should just be grateful she didn’t do what every Z-lister has done at this point, which is roll out the homage to the famous 1991 Demi Moore pose, with a soulful cradle of her belly.
And let’s be even more grateful she didn’t just post an ultrasound image. As if Bey would ever be so basic.
Presenting 'Twin Escapism': original drawing
Nothing Beyoncé does is by accident. Every album release, photograph and interview is carefully orchestrated.
So, when she posted a photograph on Instagram announcing that she and husband Jay Z are expecting twins, the world began analyzing each detail.
This original drawing exposes the elements that symbolise important parts of Beyoncé's life as she opens herself, artistically, to bring this one ray of joy into 2017.
It took just 11 hours for Beyoncé Knowles to break Instagram’s record for the most liked photograph on the photo-sharing platform.
For Phillip Prodger, head of photographs at the National Portrait Gallery in London, the image is a direct reference to the Madonna. "It’s a wonderfully clever blend of references, showing Beyoncé as a Renaissance Madonna," he tells TIME.
The 'Love on Top' singer hosted a African-themed baby shower titled the 'Carter Push Party' on Saturday, and posed at the party with her husband Jay Z.
The star wore a patterned skirt and headdress and left her tummy uncovered, adoring her bump with an elaborate henna tattoo.
Retro To Venus
In one portrait, Beyoncé stands nude with her hair flowing down to her waist in front of a mustard-yellow background.
Flowers are painted onto her tights and she rises from a burst of greenery, invoking Sandro Botticelli's celebrated 'Birth of Venus'.
Following her Grammy speech and performance, superstar Beyonce garnered abundant praise. Beyonce’s grammy performance portrayed Queen Bey in a manner that proved as royal as her title.
Beyonce’s look seemed reminiscent of the queens of our indigenous homeland - a connection that did not go unnoticed by spectators.
