Context: Beyoncé Knowles is one of the most iconic musicians of our time, and has a history of making large announcements about her life and career at unexpected moments. While the majority of this country spent the month protesting, agonizing, and mourning the defeat of Hillary Clinton, Beyoncé surprised us all, and announced on the first day of February that she was pregnant with TWINS.
Potential Relevance: Beyoncé is one of the world’s most beloved celebrities and this artistic announcement of her pregnancy is something that not only went viral online, but is an example of her owning her own body as a black woman in America.
