Responding in kind over the weekend, reporters Jon Caramanica, Wesley Morris and Jenna Wortham quickly debated the merits of Beyoncé’s “Formation” in the pages of The New York Times
Magazine. The superstar released the track Saturday and performed it a day later during the Super Bowl Halftime Show.

But the kicker came later, in the form of a thank you note to one of the trio. Per the tweet above, staff writer Wortham now has the Bey equivalent of a Pulitzer. From a write-up in The Independent:
Wortham writes that through the video ‘Beyoncé wants us to know – more than ever – that she’s still grounded, she’s paying attention and still a little hood. I think she wants us to know that even though she’s headlining a mainstream event like the Super Bowl, she has opinions and isn’t afraid to share them, nor is she afraid to do it on a national and global scale.’
It’s clear what Wortham must do now. Put a frame on it!
