@ChrisetteMichele: Honestly? What I think? It’s like royalty just had a child. It’s like the future just met it’s mayor. It’s like the best just became greater. A queen and a king had a princess and hip hop and r&b heirs just passed a torch. I’m that in awe of the moment. Just my humble thoughts. Congratulations Jay and Bey.
