Society zigs, Beyoncé zags. In music news so socially and culturally prevalent that it prompted my mother — whose two favorite musical performers are Rod Stewart and Michale Bublé — to call and ask me about it, Beyoncé released a massive new “visual” album Thursday night available exclusively on iTunes. The surprise album contains 17 music videos, 14 new songs and a partridge in a pear tree. Oh, and it’s already crushing sales.
Twitter erupted upon the release of this historical album and we collected a few of the best celebrity reactions. Take a look!
1. Demi Lovato
2. Katy Perry
A sentiment apparently held by many fans across the country. Countless social media accounts tweeted about taking a day off of work, a “Beyoncé Day” if you will, to spend some quality time with the Queen Bey’s new album.

In 2000 years will the Nativity scene be about Beyonce dropping this album?—

Don’t be silly. But, FYI, Christmas has officially been moved to December 13th.
