"It’s a very sexy album, smutty even — although it seems odd construe the carnal activities of a happily married couple as “smut.” (The technical term, I believe, is “keeping it hot.”) You’ll recall the scenes of sexy domesticity from “Countdown” (2011): “All up in the kitchen in my heels / dinnertime.” The saucy “Drunk in Love” picks up where that song left off, viz., “We woke up in the kitchen saying / How the hell did this shit happen?” (The lyric raises questions: Does any actual food preparation take place in the Carter-Knowles kitchen? Maybe Bey and Jay should probably just slide a four-poster up against the Frigidaire and call it a day?)"

Since we’re talking about Beyoncé.

At the end of my interview the other day, my manager asked one final question, “What did you do to prepare for this interview?” I thought for a moment about what I really did and decided to just go with it. I mean at this point what was there to lose beside the position. 

"I read through the handbook, repeated to myself that I was the best candidate for this position, and listened to a song on repeat."

"What song?"

"Diva by Beyoncé.”

In the height of year-end-list, Time-naming-the-pope–“Person of the Year” season, Beyoncé released a surprise, self-titled album in the middle of the night, with 14 tracks, 17 videos, and end credits. The scene in my trifold world (real life, Twitter, group text) was one of hysteria between the hours of 1 and 4 a.m. ET. It was simply too much to take in at once, her Netflixian diva roll-out.

When I woke up the next morning, terrifically thrilled it wasn’t all a dream, I started writing about said album. And then I deleted it all, because none of those words had any merit. This isn’t the time to parse out the socioecofeminist ramifications of “Yoncé.” This isn’t the time for reviews. Or critical analysis. It’s barely a time for decipherable words. Not today. Not tomorrow, either.

All that matters right now is being a fan. Above all, this is a celebration. How often do true surprises happen? Hell, if I did a quick Google search I could find out what I’m getting for Christmas in 2015. That’s the world we live in now.

But, because we are blessed, the surprise isn’t even the best part. Each song and video from Beyoncé is an event. And to think, there were people out there who thought she was slipping.
