Beyoncé is a woman of few words on social media — well, everywhere, really — but she must have been in her feelings on Monday, when she decided to pen a verbose, heartfelt message to her fans and post it to Instagram.
Her sweet words, thanking fans for their outpouring of birthday wishes, were even accompanied by a homemade GIF, set to the tune of “OOOUUU” by Young M.A.
“I just want to say thank you to everyone for all the beautiful and thoughtful birthday wishes,” she began. “I am so fortunate to have the love and support of my family, my friends, and my hive. We’ve grown up together and you guys continue to inspire and motivate me everyday.”
Bey continued, “I’m so grateful for every challenge, every smile, every tear, every discovery, every sacrifice, every triumph, every stretch mark, every kiss, every scar. I strive to make you proud. I love YOOOUUUU!!!”
Yoncé turned 35 years old on Monday, and celebrated her birthday at the Made In America festival with her husband Jay Z. Sounds like it was a good one.
