Here’s what we’re talking about before the long weekend: 

Alongside her flawless cover and spread in CR Fashion Book, Beyoncé ditched an interview and decided to submit a poem, instead. (Are we surprised? She’s Beyoncé). Titled, “Bey The Light,” the poem is made up of her words, but remixed” by author Forrest Gander. “It’s my daughter, she’s my biggest muse,” writes Beyoncé. “There’s someone, we all find out soon, more important than ourselves to lose.” The poem also touches on “break-ups and lies and double-cross.” And ends with a loving wish for her baby girl. “But for my daughter I dream all day when no one roots for others to fail, when we all mean what we say.” [MTV]
