Beyonce KnowlesIn addition to being named People Magazine‘s “Most Beautiful Woman in the World” of 2012, Beyonce Knowles will be honored for her writing skills by the New York Association of Black Journalists on May 15, reports the NY Daily News.

When Knowles took a 9-month hiatus from the spotlight in 2010, she documented her va-ca for Essence Magazine‘s July 2011 cover story titled, “Eat, Play, Love,” detailing her life with business mogul husband Jay-Z, along with such adventures as “discovering her love of artichokes, jumping from yachts and going undercover as a Harajuku girl in Tokyo nightclubs,” reports the Daily News.

“I’m grateful for the time I gave myself to breathe,” she wrote.

While some have questioned her writing ability — along with the legitimacy of her pregnancy — hinting that she may have had a ghostwriter, Essence entertainment director Cori Murray says that Beyonce wrote every word.

“She’s a real writer. We had to edit her, but everyone gets edited except Toni Morrison,” Murray told the News.

New mommy to Hip-Hop royalty, Blue Ivy Carter, Beyonce and mother Tina Knowles recently addressed the wild rumors that Queen Bey used a surrogate to bring little Blue into the world:

“I thought it was very unfair and very cruel that someone would think that someone would be that diabolical to keep up a charade like that for nine months,” said Tina. “As a mother it was painful for me to hear the crazy rumors. And I even had people ask me, which was so ridiculous. It was a fabric that folded — does fabric not fold? Oh my gosh, so stupid.”

Beyonce, as usual, seemed unconcerned with the speculation, calling it “crazy.”

There is sure to be criticism in an industry where experienced, talented Black journalists hone their craft for years without recognition — as was the case when Rev. Al Sharpton was selected to host his own show on MSNBC — and that should definitely be expected.

Known for her simplistic lyrics, many will question whether she’s worthy of a prestigious journalism award and that is something that the New York Association of Black Journalists will have to answer — since they obviously think so.
