Is there anything Beyonce can't do?
Shortly after being crowned People magazine's Most Beautiful, Beyonce is receiving a bit of recognition for the brains beneath that perfect exterior. On May 15, the singer/songwriter/actress, etc…will pick up an award from the New York Association of Black Journalists for her article Eat, Play, Love, which was featured in the July 2011 issue of Essence magazine.
The cover story chronicled her nine-month hiatus from the industry in 2010, detailing her travels with husband Jay-Z which she dubbed as a "creative reawakening."
For those who might question B's authorship of the now award-wining article, Essence entertainment director Cori Murray confirmed to the New York Daily News that the piece was indeed written by the media mogul, save for a few necessary corrections. "She's a real writer," Murray says. "We had to edit her, but everyone gets edited except Toni Morrison."
