It should come as no surprise that while we were tucking ourselves into bed last night, Beyonce was releasing a new album. The new LP, titled "Beyoncé," includes 14 songs and 17 videos, and essentially made all the dreams of womankind come true. (OK, maybe not all of them, but a few.)
Naturally, as soon as the news of Queen Bey's new album dropped, the Twitterverse exploded with all sorts of excellent and appropriate reactions of unadulterated joy. Here are just a few of our favorites:
#Beyonce's new album makes me think that Santa's actually probably a woman.

The ONLY bad part of Beyonce's new album is that Gwyneth probably heard it before we did
