Beyoncé threw in a little bit of humor when designing a custom gift for her close friends and family this holiday season.
To commemorate the challenges faced throughout the year, the "Formation" singer, 39, gave friends on her shopping list a diamond "2020" pendant necklace that was designed to also represent a hand featuring a raised middle finger — Bey's tongue-in-cheek message to this year.
"@beyonce gifted all of her girls with this amazing custom 2020 necklace. "🖕2020" It's a hand with middle finger and the year 2020 combined into one," the star's cousin Angie Beyince said on Instagram alongside a close-up image of the necklace.
"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 [sic] been a really weird and tuff [sic] year. Hopefully 2021 is good to the world 🌎 🙏 #nye #beyonce," she continued.
In Beyoncé's December 2020 British Vogue cover story, which featured three separate covers shot by 21-year-old Kennedi Carter, the youngest photographer to shoot a cover for the publication in its 104-year history, the star reflected on how 2020 has changed her.
"It would be difficult to experience life in a pandemic and the current social unrest and not be changed," Beyoncé said. "I have learnt that my voice is clearer when I am still. I truly cherish this time with my family, and my new goal is to slow down and shed stressful things from my life."
She told British Vogue: "I let my children know that they are never too young to contribute to changing the world. I never underestimate their thoughts and feelings, and I check in with them to understand how this is affecting them."
As for what's in store for 2021? The superstar singer has a multi-year deal lined up with Peloton to craft a "series of themed workout experiences" for a variety of class types. The partnership will also give back to Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
