Raise your hand if you knew that Beyoncé even wrote an article that qualified for this kind of award. *keeps hand lowered*  According to MSN Music, Beyoncé wrote an article for Essence Magazine that caught the attention of officials at the New York Association of Black Journalists.

Queen Bey wrote an article called Eat, Play, Love, in which she talked about her nine month extended vacation back in 2010.

“I had talked about taking a vacation before, but always ended up in the studio after two weeks, so no one believed me. This time, though, I was serious. I was going to give myself a year to do the things I never get to do. Simple things like play with my nephew, pick him up from school, visit museums, go to concerts, see some Broadway shows, learn to cook a meal and spend time with my husband… Yes, I needed some relaxation, but I wanted inspiration too, from regular everyday things. They did not have to be over-the-top productions. I was looking for tiny moments that would speak to my heart and make me smile…”

The New York Association of Black Journalists will be awarding Beyoncé in NYC on May 15th.
