A student at Towson University had a special reason for missing class on Thursday: It was Beyoncé's birthday.
Ja-Niece Best tweeted a photo of an email she sent to one of her professors explaining, "On September 4, 1981 The Lord blessed us all with the Goddess that is Queen Beyoncé Knowles-Carter's birthday. Out of respect, I will not be attending class today." The email's title? "Excused Absence."
According to Buzzfeed, Best had only intended to save the message as a draft, but hit "send" by mistake.
There is no word on whether or not she ended up going to class.
