My birthday is March 22, and 2 + 2 = 4, and 4 = Beyoncé's favorite number.

She waved in my direction once after a concert, and I felt cured. Technically, I hadn't needed curing, but I felt cured nonetheless.

When Bey is repping her hometown of Houston, she holds up three fingers on each hand. I grew up on the third floor of an apartment building.

The cover letter that got me an internship at O (and set me up to become Gayle King's assistant two years later) was about Beyoncé's then-unborn baby.

My initials are J.Z.
