Graphic design student at Towson University, Ja-Niece Best, emailed her professor to tell him she wouldn’t be attending class Thursday because it was “the Goddess that is Queen Beyoncé Knowles-Carter’s birthday.”


Beyoncé celebrated her 33rd birthday on Sept. 4.

“I love and respect Beyoncé so much. I’ve loved her for fifteen years,” the Towson University student told Buzzfeed.

She said that she had written the email as a joke but then sent it.

She also posted that she is a straight A student, just in case anyone thought she wasn’t paying attention in class.

Previously Ja-Niece has blamed the fact that she had not completed a paper down to the fact she was listening Beyoncé’s music.[su_csky_ad]

    She could have just missed class. I doubt if her excuse was acceptable.

    She’s hot, no doubt. But this didn’t work in the real world.

    this reminds me of a “Teen Mom” episode i happened to catch…
    …do not judge me…

    one of the teen moms had a court appearance, and she actually thought that a concert by Kei$ha would be an acceptable reason to her PO about why she missed a court date…and, had the actual temerity to get pissed off, because no one would be “cool about it”…

    this is what we are leaving our nation to, people…

    “Idiocracy” come true…
