Your favourite celebs felt the same way you did about Beyoncé’s Lemonade

26 April 2016, 18:03 Carmen Williams

We’ve all been waiting a while for The Queen of Pop to drop her next album after 2013’s Beyoncé. Then, the day we’ve all been waiting for came on 23 April when Bey blessed our ears and eyes with Lemonade. And it might be her best work yet.

Basically, Beyoncé came to snatch all our wigs and got us all in formation.

The short film or visual album was released on HBO over the weekend and, about halfway through airing, Channel24 reports that Lemonade was exclusively dropped onto streaming service, Tidal.

The new album has already been hailed as a “bold tribute to African American women”, been lauded for its references to empowerment, racial identity, the Black Lives Matter movement and, as CNN says, tells “the story of a woman not to be trifled with.”

An obviously deeply personal project, Beyoncé shared images from home movies with her father, her wedding to Shawn Carter aka Jay-Z, as well as her pregnancy and her daughter Blue Ivy’s birthday party.

But the one thing that no one can stop talking about is the references to infidelity. According to US Magazine, the singer, songwriter, actress and record producer uses the word “cheating” multiple times as she talks about pain from relationships and watching her parents struggle in their marriage.

Then, in the song Sorry, Bey sings "I see them boppers in the corner / They sneaking out the back door / He only want me when I'm not there / He better call Becky with the good hair." Which, according to Buzzfeed, had the Beyhive (Beyoncé’s fans) all in a twist, thinking that Jay-Z had cheated on Beyoncé and that “Becky” was designer, Rachel Roy.

Overall, the reaction to Lemonade was heavy, even some of our favourite celebrities shared their thoughts on social media:

Demi Lovato lost her damn mind

Laverne Cox pretty much said what we were feeling

Anna Kendrick was her usual funny self

Tituss Burgess from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt posted this video on Instagram saying “my wig has lost its curl”
