Middle fingers up.
Beyoncé surprised her close friends and family this Christmas with a “hilarious and deeply sentimental” gift to commemorate the challenging year, a custom diamond necklace that spells out “2020” in the shape of a hand raising the middle finger.
The singer’s cousin, Angie Beyince, shared a photo of the necklace on Instagram. “@beyonce gifted all of her girls with this amazing custom 2020 necklace,” she wrote. “‘🖕2020’ It’s a hand with middle finger and the year 2020 combined into one. When I opened it my eyes teared up because it is both Hilarious & Deeply Sentimental.”
“2020 has had ups and downs but over all its been a really weird and tuff year. Hopefully 2021 is good to the world,” added Angie, while Octavia Spencer commented, “That necklace is the truth.”
Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, was also the recipient of Bey’s tongue-in-cheek gift. “I love this custom made necklace designed by Beyonce for our Christmas gift,” she wrote.
In an interview for the December issue of British Vogue, Queen Bey revealed how the events of 2020 “absolutely changed” her. “It would be difficult to experience life in a pandemic and the current social unrest and not be changed,” she told the magazine. “I have learnt that my voice is clearer when I am still.”
