It's Beyonce's birthday and the Internet is acting like it's freaking Christmas... and this girl even told her professor straight up why she wasn't showing up to class today. 

"I would like to inform you that I will not be in class due to this holiday. On September 4, 1981 The Lord blessed us with the Goddess that is Queen Beyonce Knowles-Carter. Out of respect, I will not be attending class today, The Lord's Day. For any further questions, feel free to contact me. Have a blessed day and remember, Beyonce Loves You so Bow Down."

HA! I'm going to assume/hope her professor is cool and/or a Beyonce fan... but it's awfully early in the semester to really know. 

If I were the professor though, I'd tell her to try again next time [on Britney's birthday].
