The article was published in July 2011 and detailed her nine-month “break” away from the spotlight.
Essence’s entertainment director gushed, “she’s a real writer”.
What a load of rubbish.
What is wrong with the New York Association of Black Journalists????
Perhaps I am being cynical here but shouldn’t this coveted award go to the ghost writer? I refuse to believe that Beyonce Carter actually sat in front of a computer and wrote that article. It wouldn’t surprise me if she just sat down with an Essence junior writer, answered questions relating to her time away from the spotlight, and that writer then took all that information and turned it in to the article Eat, Play, Love.
