29 Moments From Beyoncé's Lemonade That We STILL Haven't Recovered From
When Beyoncé surprise-dropped her new "Formation" music video back in February, we knew a storm was brewing. Every single diehard Beyoncé fan became an anxious mess, longing for an official album announcement. Just when we thought we had reached our breaking point, the pop star teased a little something called Lemonade. Lemonade was set to air on HBO in the final days of April, but we didn't really know what it was until it arrived. Now, we're hyperventilating over all the celebrity cameos, the meaning of the title, and all those fierce, fierce moments.

Lights. Camera. Action.

When Bey gets angry, we get angry.
Even when Beyoncé is evidently judging the sh*t out of us, we accept it with gratitude.

Beyoncé does not catch keys. Keys just fly into her hands without invitation. That's some Harry Potter "accio keys" sh*t if we've ever seen it.

Admit it: you've definitely sat fully clothed in a bathtub at some point. We all have.

This Thorn-Crown Magic
Just put us out of our misery. We're not worthy.

We have no idea who it is, but this diva lives in a castle and came to slay, b*tch.
