NEW YORK CITY – The Beyhive is buzzing with mixed emotions after Beyoncé announced she will be stepping away from music in order to start a podcast. “Beyoncé is an artist first and foremost, and that’s never going to change,” a spokesperson from Beyoncé’s team said in response to an outpouring of online concern. “Podcasting is a legitimate art form and this transition does not mean her career is going downhill – it just means it’s going in a different direction.” The podcast, set to be an episodic narrative, will take the listener along with Beyoncé as she tries to figure out who really killed Jefferey Epstein. “This podcast has been in the works for over a decade,” said Beyoncé in a tweet to fans. “And I can tell you right now that yes, there will be more than one season.” Although none of Beyoncé’s A-list acquaintances have commented on the podcast announcement, her oldest daughter does have an opinion. “If you ask me, podcasters are weak and washed up,” said Blue Ivy in passing to paparazzi as she entered her first-grade classroom. “But then again, so are people that still think Epstein’s death was a suicide.” Listeners can find the podcast, titled Everything You Need to Know About Jeffrey Epstein’s Murder in a Box to the Left, available on all streaming platforms on Thanksgiving day.
