Before Beyonce hangs up her mike, she'll probably collect dozens of music industry awards. Her Grammy collection alone might require a room all to itself. But the most unexpected trophy on her future mantle will likely be for journalism, not chart-topping songs.
New York Association of Black Journalists has named Beyonce one of the year’s top journalists for an article she wrote in the July 2011 issue of Essence magazine called "Eat, Play, Love.”
According to KABC, the article was about how her life changed when she took a brief break from music.
E! News reports that the first-person written article was just one of the promotional duties Beyonce took on as she promoted her album 4.
