Victoria Monét paid a tribute to Beyoncé as she deemed the Say My Name singer as her “idol” and “inspiration”.
On Tuesday, February 6, 2024, the singer took to her official Instagram account to share a photo of her and Beyoncé taken at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards.
Monét wrote a lengthy caption as she honoured Beyoncé, "Dear @Beyonce, my queen my idol my inspiration! I was extremely nervous to come say hello to you I swear I’m usually not even the type to have the courage, but as soon as we spoke I felt a calm over me.”
Recalling the conversation she had with the CUFF IT singer, she further wrote, “It felt like home..and I knowwww that sounds crazy, but I felt it and that had to be God and some guardian angels too!”
“God knows how much I love you, how you’ve musically raised me and trained me to be a better performer by watching and experiencing you, and how many solo concerts I’ve had in my room dreaming and singing into a hair brush or remote when your albums and visuals drop!" Monét’s caption read as she revealed how Beyoncé has always remained her musical inspiration.
Name dropping legendary singers like Diana Ross, Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin, she added, "You’re my Diana, my Tina, my Aretha! My Bey!!! Your legacy has absolutely been my artist development…the best blueprint any performer could ever ask for but never EVER to be compared!!”
“The ONLY one. The way you have gracefully balanced motherhood and world domination is to be studied! The vulnerable display of this balance in your films and in real time have helped me crawl out of postpartum and in a lot of ways saved my mind’s life," her caption stated referring to Beyoncé’s latest film, Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé.
Reflecting on how the Run the World hit-maker has swarms of fans including her, Monét continued, "I know I am your billionth self proclaimed biggest fan but there’s a lot of bees in this hive and the honey is endless!! Thank you for your beauty and grace and legacy that continues opening doors for so many of us black girls, and for taking the time to speak to me on the biggest day of my career.”
“You’ve really been here all along! I love you forever, all ways, always! Sincerely Victoria," her note concluded.
