The 35-year-old Black Panther: Wakanda Forever star recounts the surreal experience of receiving flowers from the legendary musician after winning her first Emmy award last year for writing the spectacular limited series I May Destroy You, in which Coel also introduced and co-directed.
She reminisced about the experience during a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. At the time, she was filming Black Panther in Atlanta, which was an important occasion for her. When I got home, a beautiful array of white flowers was waiting for me, and an accompanying note that read, “Proud of you, X Beyoncé.”
Coel says she’s never met or talked to Beyoncé, so for her what she does is a bit crazy in her eyes. My entire professional life has served as a tribute to her memory.
The protagonist in Chewing Gum prays to get a picture of Beyoncé standing next to Jesus. The image appears on the background of the book. She went on to say that although she has written pieces about Beyoncé for The Guardian, she has never had the chance to meet her in person, so she did it means a lot to him. she.
Soon after, Coel said it was a point to repay him, which is fitting in the context of symbols helping other symbols. She continued that by releasing Renaissance, a half-length album. She said that in return, I sent her a large tree and a message of gratitude.
Coel and host Jimmy Fallon later quipped that new friendships had grown through plants, and Coel added, And merely through the air. Coel went on to explain more about the joke simply because I needed to know how she got my address.
Because she’s Beyoncé, Fallon, 48, joked back, and his guest echoed the same sentiment: Because she’s Beyoncé. God perfectly knows the location of your home.
Beyoncé, 41, made the gesture of kindness before featuring Coel on her website’s list of the most influential women for Women’s History Month last year. This meeting is to celebrate Women’s History Month.
