Next Monday, September 4th, the great and powerful Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter will celebrate her 42nd birthday. So, what can fans get for the global superstar who has everything? Easy! All they have to do is wear silver to her Renaissance concerts this Virgo season. Bey made her special decree on Instagram and her official website last Wednesday:

“Virgo season is upon us. This tour has been such a joy and as we approach the last month, my birthday wish is to celebrate with you wearing your most fabulous silver fashions to the shows 8.23 - 9.22!

We’ll surround ourselves in a shimmering human disco ball each night. Everybody mirroring each other’s joy. Virgo season together in the house of Crome.”

Immediately, the Beyhive went into panic mode. Obviously, fans didn’t want to disappoint their Queen, but this request was pretty last-minute. Many of them had already been working on their perfect Renaissance outfit for months. This is like the time my friend mass-texted everyone to wear an ugly Christmas sweater three hours before her holiday party (I wore all black, as God intended).

Over on Twitter, fans expressed their frustration. One wrote that Bey was just gonna have to accept “the lil silver rhinestones in my outfit, cause I already finalized it.” Another tweeted, “i’m not changing my outfit lmao. im just gonna wear what i planned before. sorry to mother.” Others were merely tickled by Beyoncé’s eleventh hour demand: “Virgos are so extra. I love us.”

Despite the social media grumbling, many fans scrambled to order brand new clothes that fit the new dress code. In fact, TMZ says that, since last week, the online shop Sequin Fans reported a 200% sales bump in silver and chrome apparel. Other Etsy shop owners say their inboxes are filled with people begging for extra-fast shipping. And it’s not just the speed; there’s also the price! Items as expensive as a $112 silver shirt are already low in stock.

Damn. Doesn’t Beyoncé realize that, for a normal person, this last-minute silver dress code is a big ask? Especially after purchasing a super-expensive concert ticket? Ha! Of course she doesn’t. Long live our (fabulously out-of-touch) Virgo Queen!
