Late last night, her highness Beyoncé shocked the Internet by dropping an entire full-length album complete with videos for every single song. It was a total surprise and a brilliant marketing ploy. Instead of spending months pulling cheesy stunts in an effort to build buzz, Beyoncé recognized what she had all along: our complete, unwavering attention and undying dedication to her dazzling artistry. Or something.

Also, the whole thing was so huge it crashed iTunes.

Here are some of our favorite Twitter reactions to the big news.

This guy has his priorities straight:

So does she:

Little shade for the other Destiny’s Child members:

And Jay Z:

And poor Tay Tay!

Lest you thought it was just normals tweeting about Beyonce, celebrities also jumped in on the fray. Demi Lovato appeared to have some sort of Beyhive induced stroke.

Other celebs soon followed:

Of course, not everyone was delighted by the surprise.

And here’s a fan who is SUPER pissed that Beyonce didn’t alert them before dropping the album.

Good night.

She is one of the most inspirational and the most hard working singer nowadays. It makes sense to be a huge headline. Haters always hate

I can't believe the TIMES is placing this story about this "singer". Her talent basically consists in shaking her "booty" all the time and showing her body in her videos. I expect less commercialized and more relevant stories in TIMES headlines. TIMES please don't make us waste our time!!

Damn dozens of ass lickers blaming on it... Take that: Get back to your minimalism and ridiculousness... If you can't understand news categories, how can you say a sh*t bout her?

Get back to whatever cave you came from, loser.


Xoxo.

I never blamed Time. I just said it's pathetic that it made the front page. That can be taken as blaming the magazine OR the readers. You seem like a very angry person
