40th birthday wishes: I’ cried tears of joy’ – Beyonce writes emotional letter to fans
Beyonce had an epic 40th birthday celebration with recent weeks being spent on Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ $500million mega yacht.
But Beyonce hasn’t forgotten the most important people in her life; the millions in her BeyHive.
The megastar – who turned 40 on September 4, took to Instagram on Thursday to share another set of snaps aboard the luxury watercraft as she donned a leggy outfit.
She wrote: ‘As Virgo Season comes to and end, I hope my fellow Virgos had great birthdays.’
The zodiac sign normally spans from approximately August 22-23 to September 22-23 when the sun makes its trip through the sixth sign of the zodiac.
Beyonce went on to acknowledge the plethora of tributes she received over the month as she wrote: ‘I’m so thankful tor every inspiring human who took the time to send me all the beautiful messages. I cried tears of joy and was covered in chilly bumps. Your videos, your posts, your countdowns, your playlists, and your well wishes, I will cherish forever.
This is the first year that I really understand what it means to be alive and to live in the moment. It’s the first time that I have an understanding of how fragile life truly is, how hard life can be at times, and therefore how important it is to stop and smell the roses during the good times.’
She continued by shutting down all the negative stereotypes that come with women getting older, telling fans, “whoever tried to condition women to feel that we are supposed to feel old or unhappy when we turn 40 got it ALL THE WAY F’D UP. This has absolutely been the best I’ve felt in my life. I’m so grateful to be GROWN, GROWN!” We know that’s right!
And finally, she ended the note with a beautiful and heartfelt message to her fans. “Most of y’all met me when I was 15, and we have grown up together. You bring sooooo much joy unto my life. I hope my art can continue to bring a little joy unto yours,” she concluded.
