In other Beyoncé news, the superstar has expressed her views on Washington’s heated debate over gay marriage. She posted one of her famous handwritten messages on her Instagram page Tuesday in support of LGBT rights saying, “If you like it, you should be able to put a ring on it.”
This is not the first time the singer has shared her feelings on same-sex marriage. She and her husband Jay-Z, were very supportive of President Obama’s pro-gay marriage stance last year. Bey also showed love to fellow singer-songwriter Frank Ocean when he revealed last year that his first love was a man.
