elle– Beyoncé celebrates her milestone 40th birthday today, and Harper’s Bazaar celebrated Bey’s big day and their September cover star by getting a multitude of celebs, from Oprah and First Lady Jill Biden to Billie Eilish and Taylor Swift, to send their well wishes to Beyoncé. Swift’s tribute was particularly striking and marks a very rare public appearance from the singer who has otherwise kept a very low profile this summer. Watch it below.
Swift said in the video, “Happy birthday, Beyonce. It’s Taylor. The fact that you have paved the road that every female artist is walking down now, then the fact that you’ve done so with such kindness and such grace, I—just, to say I admire you is like, there’s just not a word for it.”
