Who will honestly admit that “baddiebey” seemed like an unusual, slightly puzzling Instagram name for Beyonce? Now we know where it originated from and it makes perfect sense. Through a thank you handwritten note–yes, another one–she credits the teen girl group The OMG Girlz as the reason she chose the handle.
The trio group managed by Tameka “Tiny” Cottle (T.I.‘s wife and former Xscape member) were featured on the Ishlist 36 to countdown the 7 reasons Bey is a “baddie.” Among the seven reasons Bey reigns supreme were she can actually sing and dance, and always exhibits such grace. Now that Bey has joined the rest of the world on Tumblr and Instagram she’s made a habit of writing handwritten letters whenever she’s moved enough to do so. Frank Ocean was on the receiving end of a handwritten note after his brave transparency. Of course both President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama have received congratulatory and thank you handwritten notes respectively.
It was no different for the OMG Girlz whom Bey wanted to thank personally for the kind things they said in the video. “You named my Instagram !!!FYI!!!,” she wrote. Cute concept that Bey has made all her own. But please, no more handwritten letters Bey. Let writers write while you continue dominating music.
