Beyonce Knowles is being rewarded for her article ‘Eat,Play,Love’,which appeared in Essence magazine,by the New York Association of Black Journalists on May 15.
The 30-year-olds cover story for the magazine,which chronicled her nine-month hiatus from the showbiz in 2010,was later turned into a movie starring Julia Roberts.
In the article she wrote about ‘savoring’ the tiny moments, travelling with rapper husband Jay-Z,discovering her love of artichokes,jumping from yachts and going undercover as a Harajuku girl in Tokyo nightclubs.
Im grateful for the time I gave myself to breathe, she wrote,crediting the personal retreat with a creative reawakening.
The Grammy winner,who gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy Carter in January,doesnt mention the miscarriage Jay-Z revealed in a recent song.
Shes a real writer. We had to edit her,but everyone gets edited except Toni Morrison, the New York Daily News quoted Essence entertainment director Cori Murray as telling The News.
