Today, May 23, 2016, has been declared "Beyoncé Day" in Minnesota ahead of Queen Bey's Formation World Tour performance tonight in Minneapolis.

A resolution signed by Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton (DFL) and Lt. Gov. Tina Flint Smith (DFL)praised Beyoncé for having a positive and inspiring influence on young girls and women.

Beyoncé recently released the album Lemonade. Her performance at the Super Bowl halftime show came under fire for reportedly being "anti-police." Several police departments have threatened to boycott her concerts and refuse to provide security.
