Tucked into a new interview with Edward Enninful for British Vogue is a reveal from Beyoncé regarding the longtime presence of two literal beehives at her home.

Late into the discussion, Beyoncé is asked to name something that might be considered "surprising" about her. Enter 80,000 bees and an impressive annual haul of honey.

"I know it's random, but I have two beehives. Real ones," Beyoncé said. "I've had them at my house for a while now. I have around 80,000 bees and we make hundreds of jars of honey a year. I started the beehives because my daughters, Blue and Rumi, both have terrible allergies, and honey has countless healing properties."

Last month, Beyoncé was among those who made public statements in support of #EndSARS protesters in Nigeria. When sharing her statement in support of the anti-police brutality demonstrations, Beyoncé directed fans to a special site where they could learn more about organizations focused on helping those on the ground.
