Beyonce's fans might be known as the Beyhive, but did you know she actually keeps bees in her spare time?
And in response, she revealed that one of her hobbies was making honey - adding that she actually has 80,000 bees of her own.
Yes, really. Is there anything the Queen cannot do?!
"I know it's random, but I have two beehives. Real ones," she 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."
Who else thinks Beyonce is missing a serious opportunity for a side hustle here? Queen Bey Honey would surely sell by the bucketload...
Now, we know what you're thinking, alongside her showbiz lifestyle, working on movies like the Lion King and smashing out music, hit after hit, donning a bee keeping suit and collecting honey is hardly the first activity we expected from Bey.
But the hitmaker said the reason she got the bees was actually to help her daughters, Blue Ivy and Rumi, keep their allergies in check.
"I started the beehives because my daughters, Blue and Rumi, both have terrible allergies, and honey has countless healing properties," she said.
While the science is unclear as to whether honey can cure seasonal allergies, some believe it to be effective because those consuming it are effectively eating local pollen, thus becoming less sensitive to it over time.
However, the evidence is a little weak when it comes to actually proving this theory, according to the American College of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology.
"Local, unprocessed honey does contain small amounts of pollen from the environment. The pollen in honey is mostly from the flowers where bees are found (with flowering plant pollen less likely to cause allergy symptoms) and allergenic, airborne pollen from trees, grasses and weeds (not pollinated by bees) in lesser amounts.
"Thus, the amount of allergenic pollen in the honey is typically very small, as bees don't intentionally incorporate this pollen into the honey," they explain.
Whether it's stopping her kids allergies or not, we're loving the fact that Beyonce is a secret beekeeper.
And would we buy her honey regardless of any health benefits? Absolutely. In fact, if she told us to, we'd probably bathe in it.
