Here’s the Hidden Message in Beyoncé’s Pregnancy Announcement
The fact that Beyoncé is pregnant is totally significant in and of itself. The fact that she’s expecting twins takes it up a notch. Her announcement, posed carefully and oh-so gorgeously on her own Instagram account, brought the moment to an entirely new level. However, you may not have noticed that there’s a hidden message in Beyoncé’s pregnancy announcement that is so significant, it’s totally worthy of Queen Bey.
That’s right, Beyoncé, who’s well-known for being more than a little vocal re: race politics, announced that’s she’s expecting two new babies on the first day of Black History Month. If that’s a coincidence, we’d seriously be surprised.
And right now, an announcement like this (revealed on a day like today) might be more significant than ever…
Sad that there are more black people in Beyoncé right now, than in Trumps entire cabinet team.
