Beyonce Knowles is being rewarded for her article Eat, Play, Love, which appeared in Essence magazine, by the New York Association of Black Journalists on May 15.

The 30-year-old’s cover story for the magazine, which chronicled her nine-month hiatus from the showbiz in 2010, was later turned into a movie starring Julia Roberts.

In the article she wrote about “savoring” the “tiny moments,” travelling with rapper husband Jay-Z, discovering her love of artichokes, jumping from yachts and going undercover as a Harajuku girl in Tokyo nightclubs.

“I’m grateful for the time I gave myself to breathe,” she wrote, crediting the personal retreat with a “creative reawakening.”

The Grammy winner, who gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy Carter in January, doesn’t mention the miscarriage Jay-Z revealed in a recent song.

“She’s a real writer. We had to edit her, but everyone gets edited except Toni Morrison,” the New York Daily News quoted Essence entertainment director Cori Murray as telling The News.
