It was a Christmas miracle. Just as Thursday was about to turn into Friday (December 13), at the stroke of midnight E.T., Beyoncé gave the world her brand-new "visual album," Beyonce, without any advance notice. Not long after the tracks and accompanying music videos dropped, some of the biggest stars in Queen B's Bey Hive, including Demi Lovato, were already freaking out over the surprise release.
Beyoncé's pal and collaborator Lady Gaga woke up Friday morning to send some congrats to the singer.
Good Morning! Photoshoot and rehearsal, why aren't there more hours in the day. (Eye cream) and welcome back Honey B we missed you! <3 <3— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) December 13, 2013
Katy Perry proudly waved her own Beyoncé flag in the wake of the unexpected release. "Don't talk to me today unless it's about @Beyonce THANX," she tweeted. "B done broke the internet. #stanning."

"I'm sitting here watching THE most artful and perfect project ever....," little sister Solange tweeted about Bey's latest effort, the follow-up to 2011's 4. She also had one more review about Beyoncé's flawlessly secret rollout. "So my sister is a f---ing G," she added.

Team Beyoncé was all over the release. Fellow Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams tweeted, "Y'all alright? #theslayage #beyonce #nitenite."
Disney princess Zendaya was also already blasting the release on repeat. The album includes appearances from Drake, Jay Z, Frank Ocean and Bey's daughter, Blue Ivy. "Y'all already know I been on this since it dropped," she shared on Instagram.
It seems that the "new rules" not only apply to Jay and his Magna Carta Holy Grail release, but also Beyoncé's own stealthy album rollout — something "Glee" actress Naya Rivera applauded.
Rivera's fiancé, Big Sean, showed some love for one of the album's producers, Key Wane, who produced "Partition" and "Mine," featuring Drake. "Congrats to my brother/Friend/ producer @key_wane for having 2 songs on Beyoncé #FFOE get MONEY."
It isn't just pop starlets who are going nuts for the Beyoncé release, but also Hollywood actresses. "Beyonce. Are you kidding me with this?! #Supreme #love #everything," "American Horror Story" star Emma Roberts tweeted, with "Modern Family" actress Sarah Hyland adding, "This #Beyonce album is everything. Can I be her? #PrettyHurts."
