On Sunday night, Good Morning America shook the BeyHive by tweeting out a super teasey promo that promised Beyoncé would make a huge announcement today and that we were “gonna love it.”
Twitter instantly went off trying to guess what Bey wanted to tell us: Another pregnancy announcement, at the same time as Kim Kardashian, no less? New music? A Destiny’s Child reunion? WHAT?
If it's the Destiny's Child reunion tour, I'm dropping dead right there in front of the TV.— JaCobe (@jacobeiscool) June 8, 2015
I have a feeling Beyoncé's announcement is gonna be either her having a second baby or releasing her 6th album along with a new world tour.— ✨J✨ please tyde (@JDudleyRowe) June 8, 2015
Beyoncé might announce that she's pregnant with her second baby💗💗😩😩🙌🙌🙌— bbygirl (@royaltyaaliyah) June 8, 2015
So this morning Queen B was like, “WORLD STOP.”
She’s vegan. Or, kind of vegan? She never actually says that she’s a strict vegan in Good Morning America’s “EXCLUSIVE!!” interview, just that she’s done celebrity trainer Marco Borges’ 22-Day Revolution diet and also that she’s proud of her curves.
“Carry on.” NOW HOLD UP, BEY.
The BeyHive was underwhelmed, to say the least:
Beyoncé: I have an announcement Hive: OMFG A TOUR???? ALBUM?????? Beyoncé: Y'all fat lol— mer. (@theonewithbey) June 8, 2015
you mean to tell me beyoncé got on national tv to tell us stop eating meat? LMFAOOOOOOOOOOO.— nani (@AyeeKay40seven) June 8, 2015
I just wanna say I set my alarm for 6:55 to hear beyonce talk about a diet. I am not happy.— Baby thug.. (@Mogulsociety) June 8, 2015
Then, as the BeyHive is wont to do, they started doing the most:
Beyonce couldn't tweet or instagram she was a vegan she made everyone seem like it was important smh she so childish.— Marcos Garcia (@GotDeportedYolo) June 8, 2015
Some questioned Yonce’s commitment to the vegan cause:
While others started the meme #ReplaceBeyoncéLyricsWithVegan:
Is this really Beyoncé’s fault though? We knew she was doing that challenge and wanted to start a vegan food service. It’s not like Bey was sitting in ABC’s editing bay on Final Cut, thinking, “I’m going to clown my stans.” She didn’t hype the “reveal” on Twitter. We know who did. And you petty for that, GMA.
Still, there were some BeyHivers who still stood by their queen:
me: i hate vegans. i dont understand them. i love meat beyoncé: im vegan me: down with the unfair treatmeant of animals! end this system o— leo (@TRlNUS) June 8, 2015
Get that endorsement $$$, Bey.
Anyway, last year ET talked to Marco Borges about why Bey and Jay Z decided to take his vegan challenge. Plus, he revealed Beyoncé’s exercise secrets:
