The Brief: Beyoncé Knowledge-Carter memes consist of photos of Beyoncé, typically from the 2021 Grammys, wearing a photoshopped pair of glasses.
Beyoncé Knowles-Carter wearing glasses is the meme you never knew you needed. Photos of her from various events (most notably the 2021 Grammy Awards Show) have become popular reaction memes.
During the “biggest night in music,” Beyoncé was about to walk off stage, before she was stopped by host Trevor Noah who announced she just broke the record for the most Grammys won by a woman and any singer, male or female, with 28 awards. She also tied the record for Quincy Jones as the living person with the most Grammys. Her facial expression in the midst of learning the news was priceless.

That moment inspired many memes, including pictures of her smiling while wearing a pair of Photoshopped glasses on her face. It is unclear who created the initial edits. Hopefully, they show up and claim their clout over the new viral reaction meme.

Is this shade on a lackluster gloss…or a “rapper’s” lackluster career? 🧐 pic.twitter.com/rMkd16IQzT
