Welp, I think she’s finally gone and done it: Beyoncé may have a secret Snapchat and my heart might explode. To be clear, it will (metaphorically) explode from joy, but the feeling remains the same. How did we get here?
Well, after the announcement came through late Thursday afternoon that Beyoncé would not headline the 2017 Coachella Music Festival, the queen decided to grace us all with a consolation Instagram. But this was not just any typical Instagram. It was an incredibly special Instagram because aside from the fact that she was with the coolest celebrity child, Blue Ivy, there was something else special about the photo.
Take a long, hard look at the above photo. Does anything strike you as odd? Oh, you can’t remember when Beyoncé and Blue Ivy turned into adorable, big-eyed deer? Yeah, me neither. That’s because they are most likely using the voice-changing deer Snapchat filter, my friends. This can only mean one thing: Beyoncé maybe (all I’m saying is the chances are high) has a Snapchat account. And she conveniently forgot to tell us all. Beyoncé, why are you doing this to us? Don’t you know that we want to follow you immediately and bask in your glory constantly?

Naturally, fans did the math, they put on their sleuthing caps and they all arrived at the same realization. Of course they have to voice their feelings about it. How could they not? Some posted crying memes, frantically pleading with Beyoncé to reveal her Snapchat name. Others gave in to the futility of it all, saying that Beyoncé would never reveal her Snapchat name because it’s just super-private information.

Since Beyoncé keeps her entire private life as locked down as possible, the chances are incredibly slim that she will reveal her Snapchat name. That said, why can’t Beyoncé just have a private Snapchat and a public Snapchat? It’s not exactly the craziest thing a celebrity has ever done in this life. At least consider it, Beyoncé. Pretty please? Just for me?
For now, we’ll just have to be content with the occasional Instagram photo and epic pregnancy announcement photos. It sure is a tough life when you’re a Beyoncé fan.
