Of course, Taylor Swift wasn’t the only superstar to get a shoutout from Victoria Monét. Earlier this week, the “On My Mama” singer shared an emotional tribute to the one and only Beyoncé, whom she met at the awards show on February 4.
“Dear @Beyonce, my queen my idol my inspiration,” Monét began her Instagram post dedicated to the 29-time Grammy-winner. “I was extremely nervous to come say hello to you I swear I’m usually not even the type to have the courage, but as soon as we spoke I felt a calm over me. It felt like home.”
Monét went on to praise Beyoncés legacy as a performer as well as a mother. “The way you have gracefully balanced motherhood and world domination is to be studied,” Monét wrote to Beyoncé. “The vulnerable display of this balance in your films and in real time have helped me crawl out of postpartum and in a lot of ways saved my mind’s life.” Monét welcomed her own daughter, Hazel Monét Gaines, in February 2021 and the two-year-old is now the Grammy’s youngest nominee to date.
Monét concluded, “You’re the fuckin best!!! I know I am your billionth self proclaimed biggest fan but there’s a lot of bees in this hive and the honey is endless!! 🍯 Thank you for your beauty and grace and legacy that continues opening doors for so many of us black girls, and for taking the time to speak to me on the biggest day of my career. You’ve really been here all along! 🤎”
I’m not crying, Beyoncé’s mom is!
“You brought tears to my eyes with this beautiful letter,” Tina Knowles replied to the post. “You remind me of a young adoring Beyonce with Tina Turner and My Kelly with Whitney. Not jaded, paying homage to someone that has inspired you . It takes a beautiful humble heart to do this and it is a testament to you as a person and as an artist! May God Bless you and your Career. Ps They sang your song at my birthday party! We love it!!! Congratulations on your Grammy it’s only the beginning ❤️”
