Beyonce is never too far away to feel the love! The amazing, incredible, unstoppable Ms. Sasha Fierce (and Mrs. Jay-Z) zapped over an exclusive response to me from Brazil today after the world received word that she has just made Grammy history by receiving the most Grammy awards by any female artist in a single year on January 31 (yes, she beat both Lauryn Hill and Norah Jones who each nabbed five in 1999 and 2003, respectively).
This also brings her career total to 16, making her the third most Grammy-gifted female artist ever after Allison Krauss and Aretha Franklin...at 28 years old! And so, without further ado, Beyonce told me the following after receiving the news on the set of her next video, "Put It In A Love Song," with Alicia Keys:
"I am still overwhelmed by Grammy night. I can't believe I set a record. I am so thankful to everyone; my family, my friends, the label. I have worked so hard and it seems that it all paid off in that one night. I am still shaking."
Love ya, B, and you deserve every ounce of acclaim. If anyone on Earth doesn't yet know what all the fiereceness is about, check out her Grammy-winning disc, I Am...Sasha Fierce, now or, for the live experience, her latest CD/DVD set, I Am...Yours: An Intimate Performance at Wynn Las Vegas on beyonceonline.com now!
