Beyoncé is too dope, she reached out to a New York Times writer Jenna Wortham with flowers and a note after Wortham wrote about Beyoncé’s new track, “Formation.”

“[Beyoncé’s] idea of swag is keeping hot sauce in her bag while she’s decked out in Givenchy,” Wortham wrote. “That’s baller, and that’s why the world slash Internet is going nuts. It’s a dab in a video form, playing on a loop; it’s phenomenally delicious.”
Beyoncé reaching out to Wortham is a great example of a celebrity appreciating the people that engage in the industry of celebrity. She’s been in the business long enough to recognize that strong critical reception goes hand-in-hand with huge album sales. It’s also just about the most gracious thing anyone’s ever done for a critic. Plus, look at “Formation.” It’s a near-perfect piece of radical social art that doubles as an insanely catchy song.
