Beyonce dropped an album. The world went crazy. The world continued to go crazy. And then, everyone started over-analyzing.
Queen Bey basically broke the Internet when she released her surprise visual album on the early morning of Dec. 13. Fans, haters and everyone in between reacted in shock, and within minutes, the media began dissecting each of the 14 songs and 17 videos with tweezers, resulting in a steady stream of #BeyonceThinkPieces on the web.
Of course, the 32-year-old’s new self-titled album — and hair, and costumes, and dance movies — deserves coverage, but it’s just music! No need to obsess over why she “snubbed ALL the other letters in the alphabet on ‘XO'” or “why Beyoncé’s ‘Partition’ is an affront to livery drivers.”
