A couple of days ago, Beyonce just about broke the Internet when she announced that she’s pregnant—with twins no less!—via an Instagram photo. The news spread like crazy, shattering Instagram records, with fans rejoicing that a little happy news is exactly what the world needs right now.
After the initial giddy reaction though, Queen Bey started getting a little flak about the highly stylized photo. Specifically, her choice in fashion. I saw everything from “Wait, I don’t get the veil” to the New York Post’s “Beymaculate Conception.”
Cue the internet going absolutely wild.
Later, Bey dropped an entire pregnancy photo album on her website—with photos seemingly inspired by famous works of art depicting Venus and the Virgin Mary.
Whether you like the super artsy photos or not, one thing is clear: Beyonce is a queen.
