It’s probably safe to say that most of us who watched Beyoncé’s Lemonade on HBO had our minds completely blown. Because Beyoncé is the master of all masters.

What started as a secret visual album, has turned into a timeless, unapologetic masterpiece that brings healing, hope and freedom to black women everywhere. Beyoncé is no longer simply a super star artist pushing buttons with her music and her ideas, she’s now an authentic social-political hero.

Anne Hathaway feels that in a major way. She documented her Lemonade feelings in an Instagram post yesterday, and made it extremely clear that she has mad respect for Empress Bey.

She captioned the video, “Respect beyond respect. @Beyonce just changed so many games. Queen just became an Empress. Chills all over. #LEMONADE”

Lemonade is breaking through the barriers on womanhood, blackness and freedom. The video is already a cultural phenomenon, and it hasn’t even been an entire week since its release. It’s sparking political conversations the world so desperately needs to have, and will hopefully continue to do so for a long time. All hail the Queen.
